President Biden just addressed the collapse of Afghanistan. It was the best speech he has given since taking office.
The situation is not pretty and he didn’t try to paint it as such. It was a good blunt speech about what the reality is. He addressed no issues so one can not pick holes, or believe me I would.
Afghanistan is only Afghanistan to outsiders. The people who occupy and have occupied that region for all time are tribal. No matter the temptations of the modern world, wealth, political power, none of it tempts them to change who they are and who they intend to forever be.
They have been conquered by every super power back to Genghis Kahn and dozens others since. Each time they fight and bleed the outsiders for decades if necessary, but in the end the Invaders leave and the region returns to it’s cave dwelling tribesman.
The Cycle has not changed in 1000s of years, it is not going to now.
The President of The United States.
