  1. It is imperative that those Afghanis who helped the U.S. leave before the troops leave—to do otherwise is not only unethical but dangerous to U.S.’s future national security.

    1. So, you’d pull out Karsi and Ghani, and the rest of the Afghan government, and just let the Taliban take over?

    2. @Deborah Freedman, I’m more concerned about the Afghani citizens who helped U.S. soldiers. The leaders have enough cash and connections to take care of themselves and flee if they are unable to hold their government together.

  2. Afghan coalition forces: ”We are being left behind!”
    South Vietnamese, Iraqi Kurds, Syrian Democratic Forces, Syrian Kurds, Ukraine: ”First time?”

  3. So Afghan journalists who supported America AND ALL THEIR FAMILY should get visa’s??? From a country where over 1/2 support the Taliban??? Sounds crazy to me…

  4. 2,500 dead American soldiers in Afghanistan in 20 years, which is what, a fairly bad day of COVID in 2020.

  5. The Afghans themselves need to decide if they’re willing to fight and die for a western style Democracy or they’re satisfied with an Islamic style government. Ultimately, the Afghans must decide. The Taliban know what they are willing to fight and die for and I expect they will be in full control again as soon as we leave. Enough of the U.S. fighting this battle for them.
