Chagrined on a deep level to see extremism take hold, once again. The evacuation of Kabul under duress, abandonment of Afghani allies reminds me of stories of the fall of Saigon and US abandonment of vietnamese allies. While messy and probably overdue this feels dishonorable. On a broader level it’s a human tragedy - difficult to imagine living in a theocratic Islamist hell. The afghanis don’t seem to want a better option and don’t want to fight. Hard to understand other than fear.
