Here we go again. Look at the headline (Wa Times), and then at the caption of the photo accompanying.
- Pentagon braces for Kabul to fall to Taliban, sends thousands of troops to evacuate U.S. Embassy
- The Taliban delegation arrives for Afghan peace talks in Doha, Qatar, Thursday, Aug.12, 2021.

This is why I’ve been sour on this whole thing for a decade — ever since Obama announced that we would haul ass. Once that announcement went out, the whole thing was moot. See my Ricochet post for details. From a decade or so ago.
Good-ness. I’ll just leave this here and try to keep a civil tongue.
