The best thing about getting out of Afghanistan is that the government will cut spending by $100-200/day. That's substantial for one line item. The true tax isn't the actual $ taxed. It is government spending. They will get that money out of you one of three ways. Taxes. Borrowing, which is tomorrow's tax. Creating more dollars out of thin air, that is a secret tax, which makes your money worth less. Plus, the reason why there hadn't been much violence in Afghanistan for a couple of years is because Trump negotiated a cease fire on the condition that the US left on May 1, 2021. The snafu we are seeing is not due to mis-planning but pulling out late. We went back on our word. That should be embarrassing. Some here have claimed Taliban isn't trustworthy. I can't argue that they are, but the US has proven they aren't either. If we go back, win or lose, many more sons will die, many more billions will be spent. Then at some point the US will leave, and the Taliban will be back in power because they have legitimacy there. The US backed Afghani state had no legitimacy in the eyes of the people and won't 30 years from now. It's either get out now or get out after costing the American people much more.
