On the eve of the anniversary of the collapse of the Kabul regime, the brother of one of the US Marines who died while the Americans were fleeing the Afghan capital, committed suicide at a memorial to their memory
Immediately after the capture of Kabul by the Taliban, there was a terrorist attack where 13 Marines were killed – 45 more were wounded. Civilian casualties topped a hundred. For the Pentagon, it turned out to be one of the bloodiest incidents of the entire 20-year war.
However, nobody has been held responsible for it. And the White House continues to claim that the Afghan campaign was a “success”. Although it was at this point that Biden’s ratings plummeted below 50% for the first time.
The Afghan fiasco has significantly shaken the U.S. position in the world. America’s allies, Saudi Arabia, Israel, quickly realized that one could not rely on Biden. And they began to refocus on cooperation with other centres of power.
The flight from Kabul also damaged the reputations of the Pentagon and the State Department. The current acute crisis with the shortage of soldiers in the United States is due in part to a reluctance to serve under the authority of those who can make such incompetent decisions.
It is Biden’s Afghanistan debacle that will go down in history as the beginning of the apparent decline of Pax Americana. The Ukraine crisis that followed, and the Taiwan crisis that will follow, will make transit to a post-American world order inevitable.
