“It’s the Greatest Foreign Policy Disaster That I’ve Seen in My Lifetime”

This is important to watch: Colonel Richard Kemp speaks on the Afghanistan debacle – The New Neo

In a way, it was a relief to hear someone state the situation so well. But it was also very frightening and depressing, even it if isn’t new information. Here’s one excerpt:

What we’re seeing and what we’ve seen in the last few days is – it’s the greatest foreign policy disaster that I’ve seen in my lifetime of any nature from any Western country, and I would go so far as to say that this is the most disastrous foreign policy since at least the Second World War for the United States of America. It has unbelievable strategic consequences, well beyond Afghanistan itself, and I think, you know, people often compare Vietnam and Saigon in 1975 to the things they’re seeing on the television now. I think it’s worse than that and it’s very different to that.

Sadly, it appears that the video is now unavailable. But Kemp knows what he’s talking about. He’s a retired British anti-terrorism specialist. Not the kind of guy you want to mess with, and the kind of guy who’s seen a lot of good stuff and bad stuff, but mostly stuff he can’t talk about.

If he says it’s the worst thing he knows of, that encompasses quite a bit more than you and I know of.

This is what you voted for. #IToldYouSo
