I continue to ask, where is NATO and the United Nations in all of this?

Maybe I’ve missed it, but we continue to spend millions in support of those international organizations.

Wouldn’t the evacuation be an adjunct to their peace-keeping missions? Are U.S. representatives seeking their involvement?

Yes Mr. Butler, you missed something. There were other countries in the fight. That is why the UK, Germany, and Canada were pi$$ed off when the US unilaterally pulled up stakes and left, leaving them in the lurch. We were there only in a supporting role, with the vast majority of the fighting and dying being done by the Afghans themselves (over 66 thousand military and police, and 47 thousand civilians killed).

You’re right, you missed something:

Bill, You shouldn’t count on Fox News as your only source of information if you don’t want to sound ill-informed.🤦‍♂️
