It’s funny how the Brits, and the French, and nearly every other country with a military presence in Afghanistan can find a way to get to and rescue their citizens in the country (and this pisses the US forces off), despite having gotten little or no notice from the US about the timing of the
And yet we have General Miley (while wearing Ranger tabs) telling us he isn’t sure that the US can secure the airport? (isn’t that an excellent mission tailor made for the Rangers? ) and that people in the country are on their own?
