I was 9 years old when I watched my Congresswoman wear a burqa in Congress to justify the invasion of Afghanistan. For the rest of my life, I knew that as a Muslim woman my identity would be weaponized to justify American wars. 20 years of war later, what did we accomplish?

US elites are melting down over Afghanistan because they don't like being humiliated. They see this defeat as a destabilizing threat to their own legitimacy at home & won't forgive Biden until he gives them a new war, which he almost surely will. Dangerous times ahead for all.
