(USA) Who has really turned their back on whom?
The question was asked by a British Diplomat in Kabul "Is American back ... or has it turned its back?" Comparisons to the leaving of Saigon have also been made. But the decision is one fully endorsed by Joe; the USA will no longer stand up as the world's policeman. Britain can't do it as it hasn't got an Army any more. The Europeans can't do it as they can't agree to having an army, unless everyone in it speaks French, and the Russians would like to do it ... but can't really afford it. So! Where on earth does that leave us for the next generation or so? Maybe it's about time to get the kids trained up to do what our fathers did!
