Thanks for reading the piece and commenting. Please let me politely disagree that the debacle was inevitable. Military experts suggest a number of steps could have reduced the speed of the Taliban advance, minimized the capture of abandoned military equipment, and avoided some of the panic seen at the Kabul airport.

I appreciate you commenting even though you disagree with me.
