Mission Accomplished

Right around midnight (local time) this morning, the last C-17 flight took off from the Kabul airport in Afghanistan taking with it the remaining US military troops, ending the American longest war.

The rescue mission of the last 18 days was difficult.  Not only the sheer number of people (over 124,000) needed to be lifted out but also the unstable and chaotic situation these operations came under (13 US service members lost their lives).

For those critics who say the task could have been done better, that may be true.  But the role of critics is best compared by President Teddy Roosevelt.  The Biden administration has maneuvered through tough obstacles in accomplishing the task. The mission is now  complete.

Do you feel more relieved or worried now that US is out of Afghanistan?
