I honestly struggle with the politics of Afghanistan. It does appear that after 20 years we leave and within months it goes back to very similar or on its way. It’s not the US job to be the world police we did try to build coalitions and fail at the end of the day unless we’re willing to keep troops there forever which most Americans don’t want to I am not sure what the right thing to do is. And I’m sick of criticism just for the sake of the president. I don’t think there’s a perfect solution

As an Afghan it would be really nice is the super powers stopped trying to prop up warmongers and then act all surprised when things go to sh*t. “Let’s only work with people who are the same ethnic group that make up the Taliban… oh they are killing the other ethnic groups now that we are gone? Oopsie!”

Invading Afghanistan was the right decision. Al-Qaeda had to be disrupted and the Taliban were giving them shelter. Where the US screwed up was deciding to stick around and trying to engage in nation building.

Almost every US attempt at nation building since 1950 has been a failure, so why would Afghanistan be any different?

These were examples where the governmental regime was radically transformed.

Afghanistan had some kind of government as well. Just not one we liked very much.

Either go and be willing to clean house and accept the civilian casualties that will come with it or pull out and let them do what they want and next time they try to attack us or an ally you carpet bomb them. It’s really not hard but no one has the stomach to get things done.

Afghans have repelled major world powers for centuries. It was pure hubris thinking the US could. We should offer citizenship to anyone there who wants it (should have done it years ago) and then GTFO.

It’s almost like… every time an empire tries to get involved there they are rebuffed… could it be they just like things the way they like them instead of being forced to follow western norms of government?

I have an accounting background but was able to break into IB. I’ve been studying for the SIE and feel pretty confident about it and I’m averaging 80+ on the practice exams, however I missed the window to test for another week bc of availability (should have scheduled it sooner). If I start studying for the 63 and while I wait to take the SIE do you think that will hurt/confuse me? Sick of looking at SIE materials, surprised there’s not any more testing windows …

Got promoted last year in October. Got an offer back in March 2021. My current company retained me stating that they will promote me in October but compensated me with a cash bonus. Things took a wrong turn and I landed up in a shitty project.Zero technical growth.

Got another offer similar to previous one. Location is my hometown. Profile is good.

If I resigned, I will lose the retention bonus & won’t be getting paid for the next 3 months + festive season is starting.
