A tawdry end to a tawdry war

Afghanistan... By what right did the USA invade that country? By what right did it remain there? But having abused its power for so long, when leaving could the US not have fulfilled promises to local supporters and protected all its citizens? Yes, certainly it was the right move to leave. But there's a right way and a wrong way to do that. No amount of political pretense will change the fact that Biden's departure from Afghanistan was every bit as arrogant and presumptuous - every bit as cruel and unethical - as Bush's entry.
