For 2 decades, the U.S. spent trillions of dollars and lost thousands of soldiers in Afghanistan. But today: the U.S. military raced to evacuate diplomats and civilians from Afghanistan, President Ashraf Ghani flew from the country, the Afghan government collapsed, and Taliban enter the capital Kabul.
If the U.S. policy makers fail in Afghanistan after such costly and decades of intervention, how could their lopsided intervention yield a different outcome in Ethiopia? It will be worse because in Afghanistan the U.S. fought Taliban and in Ethiopia the politicians in Washington D.C. support the Taliban of Ethiopia—TPLF. Mr. Jeffrey Feltman and Ms. Samantha Power better check the safety of their friends in Kabul than being preoccupied with a mission to destroy Ethiopia.
