The United States’ top priority should be leaving Afghanistan, not securing a deal that would mostly be a public relations win.
The Afghanistan War was never supposed to be an endless imperial policing mission. At a time of resurgent great power rivalry, President Trump deserves to have an NSA who is a foreign policy realist.
After 18 years, thousands of casualties, and a price tag that could be as high as $1 trillion, the United States has done all it can in Afghanistan. Instead of finding excuses to stay, it’s time to come home.
By a 68-23 margin, the Senate decided we haven’t spilled enough blood, broken enough soldiers, or spent enough money on Afghanistan.
These failed pundits’ efforts are meant to shame President Trump into reversing his instinct to pull the United States out of Afghanistan.
We spend gobs of money on our military, so what do we get in return? A lot of foreign intervention that has little clear benefit to Americans.
The war in Afghanistan is over. If our aim was to reshape Afghanistan as a modern civilized liberal democracy, we lost.
On anniversary of 9/11, it’s difficult not to notice that Americans don’t really share a coherent, unifying cultural or idealistic value anymore.
The president will soon make one of the weightiest decisions of his presidency: whether he should increase America’s military mission in Afghanistan.
The Trump administration is a lot closer to conventional foreign policy orthodoxy than many of his political enemies thought or his supporters desired.
