Well, it was a ‘splendid little war’ while it lasted — all 20 years.

As you’ve no doubt heard, America is finally leaving that third-world dung heap known as Afghanistan.

This day was bound to come, mind you, and frankly, it should have come more than a decade ago.

But given that, you’d think that the money American taxpayers spent training the Afghan army would have been money well spent, right?

After all, it’s been 20 years. 

Surely we can train an effective Afghan fighting force in two decades, right?


The Afghan forces are folding like a cheap suit, and as they do, guess what’s happening?

The Taliban are scooping up U.S.-supplied vehicles and weapons by the ton.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Taliban has seized scores of American weapons and military equipment from Afghan security forces as the terrorist group accelerates its takeover following the withdrawal of U.S. forces from the country.

Taliban terrorists are now in possession of U.S.-made military vehicles, anti-aircraft guns, armored tanks, and artillery. The munitions were provided to Afghan security forces to secure the country as the United States ends its two-decade war there. The Taliban have overwhelmed Afghan forces, taking over key Afghan provinces and using U.S. weapons to power the offensive.

“These captured systems will increase the mobility and lethality of the Taliban, making them a more formidable adversary,” said Bradley Bowman, senior director of the Center on Military and Political Power at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. “We have already seen the Taliban using captured humvees to patrol Kunduz and Sar-e Pol.”

Absolutely pathetic. 

And for the record, the same “experts” who told us for years the Afghan National Army was ‘getting better’ are now telling us that the capital of Kabul will fall by the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, which led to our involvement there.

At least these ‘experts’ will finally be right about something.
