Coalition forces should have never gone there in the first place. The Russians went there in the 80's and got whupped. We went in there in the early 2000's along with the Coalition, stayed a while, and got whupped.

Afghanistan was never worth it to begin with. Knock out one Taliban leader, and ten more take his place. Get whoever is left on our side out of there, and let's all wash our hands of that place and NEVER bother with it again!

20 years of training and they abandon the equipment an run. South Vietnamese at least had the brains to use the helicopters to get the hell out.
Gathered in the park waiting for the Taliban to come. Looks like we got lied to again and the gov't did NOT have the support of anyone.
How many of the refugees we welcome will be corrupt officials that pocketed the aid money?
Fucking shitshow. Wasted some of our bravest.

We better be ready with trauma specialists for the Canadians who served there.

Well that was quick. Kabul falls in 60 seconds.
Hope the Taliban has the brains to just let people who don't want to be there just leave.
And once again, the American taxpayer has armed it's own enemy with a huge stockpile of the best modern weapons. Can't reach N America with tanks, Humvees and helicopters but they can sure raise shit among the neighbourhood.

"A war begun for no wise purpose, carried on with a strange mixture of rashness and timidity, brought to a close after suffering and disaster, without much glory attached either to the government which directed, or the great body of troops which waged it. Not one benefit, political or military, was acquired with this war. Our eventual evacuation of the country resembled the retreat of an army defeated”

G.R. Gleig, British Soldier, 1842, Afghanistan.
