Can we evacuate 300,000 people from Afghanistan? It doesn’t matter if this wasn’t the question we wanted to answer. It’s the only question now. And probably, there are just hours left to make the commitment that we will. Because whether leaving Afghanistan was the right call or not; whether it’s all gone to plan or would always have been chaos; whether the error was merely in execution or in strategic view — we cannot ignore the implications of failure if the evacuation of Afghanistan leaves 300,000 people behind. It will change us and everything that we are able to do after.
Hi Molly. I just heard you on Politicology+ and found your comments about being frustrated by none of the politicos calling for civilian service and the value of military service particularly regarding for the fine people of your origin of Idaho. With my VC backed HeroHomes.com we’ve got a “With locals first to VETrify versus GENTrify the Great American (and next the World) Renewal” mission statement. I wonder if you could refer me to an ID luminary to VETrify there, and I think you’d find interesting out internationalization strategy that in essence takes a lot of inspiration from how Republican Rome gave retiring legionaries 40 acres in “colonia” in strategic locations. Let’s see Putin and Shi figure out how to counter this? Might we connect? reed @ HeroHomes.com
Thank you, Ms. McKew. This is the best expression of my feelings and vague thoughts that I've read. I've already shared it with a number of people, including in Italy. It got me to subscribe today. GS
