I fully expect that, after the eventual pullout, there will be those who argue "We were winning, but we were stabbed in the back by the liberals/MSM/libertarians/etc."
There are miletry loiers who make this very argument about Viet Nam 1.0
I had that individual in mind. There are also several others who post similar comments in the same place.

I was worried that the horrific attacks on the Kabul maternity ward would kibosh America's planned withdrawal from Afghanistan, but it looks like it's still on track.
US officials say they will reduce to 8,600 troops by July 15 and abandon five bases. By the second quarter of 2021, all foreign forces are supposed to withdraw, ending the US's longest war. Yet the outlook for peace is cloudy at best. In the absence of Afghan peace talks, the administration of US President Donald Trump may face the prospect of fully withdrawing even as the Taliban remains at war with the government.

Hopefully Trump's narrative obsessed myopic blundering will come in handy for once.
That has concerned some lawmakers, including Representative Liz Cheney, a Republican and member of the House Armed Services Committee.

She says the US needs to keep a military and intelligence presence in Afghanistan to prevent groups like al-Qaeda and the ISIL's Afghan affiliate from forming havens from which to attack the US

"Withdrawing US troops from Afghanistan won't end the war - it will just let the terrorists win," she told The Associated Press.
Bless your heart.

Yup, Liz. The terrorists will win because your dad & his boss set up impossible conditions for the US to 'win' in Afghanistan.
