This week we focused our attention on the morass that is unfolding in the country of Afghanistan.
Nearly two weeks into the withdrawal of US troops and the evacuation of US, Afghani and other global citizens, we analyze the withdrawal by the Biden administration.
Our discussion gave us the opportunity to introduce listeners to some of the key players including US negotiators, the Taliban and ISIS-K.
We explore the history of imperial exploits in Afghanistan and how the Unites States, after 20 years of our ‘Forever War’ finds itself part of a long list of Western powers to fail in Afghanistan.
What went wrong? Who’s to blame? How does this latest in US military exploits likely to play out over time both within and from outside the US?
