The Brits are evacuating civil staff in Afghanistan after a failed war that cost them NATO and the United States countless lives and also killed and maimed many civilians. They abandon those that fought with them in a rerun of the Kabul evacuation of 1928/29. Interfering in others countries they have never learned in centuries.
The British media will portray this ‘tail in their legs’ flight as a great epic – shame on folk who are deluded by this.
The Brian Withers painting (1970) portrays the 1928/29 evacuation of Kabul by the RAF also as ‘a great triumph’!
History repeats itself and the people of Afghanistan suffer once again as they have in the past. Broken promises!
