The fall of Kabul is warning sign for Israel

The only surprise was not that Afghanistan fell to the Islamist terror group, but how rapidly it happened.

While the evacuation of U.S. forces and personnel was due to take another two weeks, the Taliban choose not to wait.

It is still unclear how both presidents were so ignorant that what did happen could happen. Biden promised that "there's going to be no circumstance" for a rerun of the images from the fall of Saigon in April 1975, but the scenes from Kabul gave lie to that vow.

As with Afghanistan, the U.S. departed Vietnam leaving behind a divided state and millions of deaths, including thousands of fallen American soldiers.
The coming months and years will see a plethora of books trying to explain why the U.S. and the rest of the West were so strategically blind.

How could the world's most powerful superpower once again allow itself to become ensnared in a two-decade war of attrition that it ultimately lost?
