Jake Tapper: The Outpost-The War in Afghanistan

Given the current news in regards to the U.S. botched exit from Afghanistan this is a book which should be a must read for anyone who wants a historical perspective on the past twenty years from a failed U.S policy take.

This is a great book and was given to me by my friend who is a retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General.

He said, ” Read the book, Mike. Do us a both favor and expand that limited mind of yours.” It’s a long book with a tough subject matter, but once I got into it…I couldn’t put it down.

Jake Tapper is one helluva writer and his research on this book plus his skilled narrative gives the reader a walk through on why the U.S. should have long ago left Afghanistan.

What we’re witnessing today goes well beyond Joe Biden’s decision or even beyond a Democrat vs Trumplican debate.

This book takes the reader on a story of how after Vietnam the U.S. learned absolutely nothing and made even more staggering errors in the effort to capture and kill Bin Laden. Then compounded this by attempting to nation build in a country which doesn’t have a real will to be a democratic nation.

The Smerconish Question of the Week this past Saturday was…Should the U.S. reconsider its exit from Afghanistan?

With 19,000 votes cast the vote went 77% voting hell no and with 23% voting yes.

I would say the U.S. does have a real obligation to get Americans and the Afghans out who helped the U.S cause, but beyond that it would be folly for the U.S. to continue its path in this country. There seems to be no real hunger for democrcy in the country. South Korea is a different story in my view.

If you get a chance read this book. Turn off MSNBC and Fox and read this book about an American historical tragedy.

I think Jake is finishing up on his first novel currently besides doing his thing at CNN….where he is the polar opposite of fuckstick Tucker Carlson.

  7. Hey. I don’t use Twitter or a message board. I once had an ice hockey site where I did have a live message board and I consequently received multiple death threats from Edmond hockey mothers.

    Twitter, oh, boy. Same thing. I’ve stayed away from Twitter because I’m fairly certain I’d get in trouble using that forum as well.
    Thanks for reading the blog. Mike
