Have We Learned the Lessons of the Twenty-Year Debacle in Afghanistan?

The most important lesson from the chaotic retreat of U.S. and NATO forces from Afghanistan is that we must end the era in which geopolitics determines foreign policy. The present nervous uncertainty surrounding Afghanistan is not simply the result of an intelligence failure, of Trump's negotiations with Taliban, or a mistaken decision by Biden: It is the result of the domination of U.S. and western thinking, for the last fifty-plus years, by the intentionally deadly principles of British imperial geopolitics! Will we use the crushing defeat of geopolitics as an opportunity to reject the axioms of a global imperial power, and replace them with the prospect of cooperation for development, which is the true legacy of the American revolution?

    End the oligarchy’s drive for a Unipolar imperium – by having the U.S., Pakistan, China and Russia employ locals in constructing infrastructure in Afghanistan and that entire region !
