Rapparee Afghanistan - then and now (194* d) RE: Afghanistan - then and now 17 Aug 21


Yeah. And a lot of US veterans are VERY annoyed* that what they worked for and died for fell in a blitzkrieg. Billions of dollars and a huge number of lives lost (Allied and Afghan) to try to prove that what Russia and Great Britain tried to do could be done. I thought that when it began in 2001 and never saw anything to change my mind.


*I was at the local VA Clinic today (getting hearing aids repaired, not getting me repaired) and while waiting heard a young female veteran excoriating every US administration from 2001 to the present. Then she started to weep over friends she lost there -- the psychology people came and took her into their area of the clinic. Her command of rhetoric was quite impressive!
