Last Plane Out

There’s not much left to say. A book closes as America’s twenty year commitment to Afghanistan comes to an inglorious end. For men and women who spent time there in uniform or as government employees, this is moment is bitter. All of that treasure, material, and blood…..twenty years worth…..wasted.

Now begins a new book for the people of Afghanistan, their new leaders and the world. The ramifications of the American exit will be felt for some time. Yet it remains to be seen what form they will take, or what areas of the globe will feel the impact most directly. Thoughts to ponder today and into the near future.
