7. That country is geographically situated that it's where invaders go to flounder for years then die.

It's landlocked and hard to get to...supply lines much too long to sustain forever. 20 years of investing in that shadow government and army has gotten us nowhere. The Soviet Union found out before us, and others have before that.

Unfortunately it might be time to cut our losses. But of course get all the people out who helped us over the years.

Let the Afghans decide their own future. The Taliban will fall themselves if they oppress their own people.
