This must be fake news given Donny literally just assured us he had the Taliban under control. Of course, only complete and utter morons believe anything Donny says.

All this after "A Beautiful and Perfect Phone Call".

Oh yeah - peace in Afghanistan, just like that awesome denuclearised North Korea we were supposed to get. Trump and Pompeo make the US look more feckless with every meeting they hold with their enemies, who despise them and laugh at their simplicity.

So much for the Trump peace deal, Sunk before it even started.

Trump doesn't have the chops to do deals at this level.

So much for the argument that Trump has capitulated to the Taliban.

So much for the Trump peace deal, Sunk before it even started.

And if he hadn't signed a peace deal ya'll would be saying he doesn't want peace.

Trump doesn't have the chops to do deals at this level.

Oh, but Biden, Bernie, Bloomberg, Warren or Mayor Pete do have the chops, right? Bwahahahahahaha

Taliban leadership cannot control their forces on the ground

"Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”

Taliban just needed to wait 180 days, bide their time. But they couldn't. They are a mob of religious fanatics, just like any other mob. No way to control a mob like that except to take all their weapons away, round them up, and follow the Chinese model of "re-education." Everything short of that will end with the "freedom fighters", so they believe, continuing to attack anyone they don't like, who doesn't believe or act as they want.

There's no way out.

What would you have Trump do? Keep U.S. forces there forever? More bombing? Give up?

Sure there is. Bin Laden is dead. Declare victory and head to the airport.

As-long-as Dems in America vote for wars then turn against them for political gain America should refrain from nation-building wars. Bomb the crap out of them, take down the government and leave the wreckage for the people to rebuild from their mistakes. Repeat. Saves lives and money. I feel badly for for the innocent civilians who bear the brunt of war but until they decide to rise up and take back their country from the fanatics- they will continue to risk outside invasion and war.
