I take the lack of political diatribe on here as a good sign. I think we all have thoughts about those less fortunate than us at this time. Mothers, Children and Fathers fearing what the next day will bring. This day stinks, even without ever being there. I can't imagine those who have invested so much what today feels like. Your in a tough spot. God Bless Naj, Mo and Ami, your families, and the rest that had hoped for better.

I'm an veteran of Vietnam ( Class of ( 69 & 70 ). The current mess in Afghanistan would of played out the same 10 years ago or 10 years frm now. Afghan is a holy war that will last forever. We had good intentions in Vietnam and Afghanistan and a war we couldn't win. We must make the best amends to the Afghan people that put their trust in us. As for finger pointing, Congress has funded the war for 20 years. Presidents Bush43, Obama, Trump and Biden up till now have signed off on it.

Thank You, in more ways than one, but mostly for your service and an intelligent response! I kinda...(add many more dots and question marks) wish I had the life experiences you have. One should refrain to form a strong opinion without something personal to back it up. My life has been roses. Hardships for me have been mostly self induced. Accelerating as time progresses, in this great country, self induced hardships are becoming a dime as dozen. DJ
