    Are we taking bets on when Afghanistan falls?

    I give it 6 months. Most people more focused on what sex is using what bathroom and such, while the US leaves Afghanistan after 20 years. Anyone who was there/boots on the ground have an opinion as to what will happen? I pinged a recently retired Col who spent a long time there, said 3-6 months before they fall, but he also said we'd reach the objectives 10 years ago and it was time to leave.

    The towel head taliban are already sweeping across the country. If they want freedom, let them free themselves. We have our own issues to resolve and they are growing daily.

    Russia already tried that and it didn't go to well. Doubt there's anything that would get them to go back. Iran or China can have it if they too want to learn the hard way about that country.

    We ousted the Taliban from power in less than 30 days. It will take less than that for them to reclaim the government.

    I wasted 3 years of my life in that country for no tangible reason. It will go back to exactly the way it was before we invaded in 2001, and that's Afghanistan's problem.

    Russian would not do full conventional forces...they would do PMCs and little green men to secure a 20 to 30 mile buffer zone.

    To what end? Are they worried about invasion from that direction? What natural resources are there to take? I suspect they are as likley to that as we are to return to Nam at this point.

    I encourage China to settle some soldiers there.

    Less Muslims, less Chinese soldiers.
