I've been saying this since people voluntarily masked up and locked themselves in their homes, and that is: If I was America's enemies, I would be gearing you for war against us and our allies.
Because, why not?
Most of our so called "leaders" are paid off by China and others so thete is zero resistance there and the Blue state voters have shown their acceptance of totalitarianism.
So, if you think Afghanistan is bad, just wait until you see what happens over next 2-3 months with our enemies taking whatever they want, whenever they want from us and our allies.
Weakness emboldens tyrants.
