Trump had better come up with a better idea. My solution to the 17-year war: emulate the example of the courageous Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev. He pronounced his Afghan War unwinnable, told his angry generals to shut up, and ordered the Red Army out of the war in Afghanistan.

I voted for DJT45 with zero expectations. He was “the prettiest horse in the glue factory coral”. I’d hoped that he would make peace with the Russians, revoke all the various regulations that have the American economy tied up in knots, and prevent the Congress from doing anything more stupid than they usually do.
So far, the stalemate suits me just fine.
I would like peace and prosperity.
Ending Afghanistan would be an EXCELLENT foreign policy.
