Remember what happened in 1975 in ‘Nam after the U.S. completely pulled out? The NVA rolled over the ARVNs in a matter of weeks (or maybe it was days) and the war ended and they were victorious.
We were supporting a corrupt govt. then and we’re supporting one now. As soon as we leave, the Afghan army will fold like a house of cards.
So we might as well get out now, and save a lot of U.S. (and allied) lives.

Leave and then nuke the frontier from outer space.

actually in Vietnam the South held decisively every front line for nearly two years. The KGB told the Viet Cong they should work out a treaty they had no chance to win. It wasn't until Ted Kennedy passed a bill to pull all funds to help the South.
Actually the next morning after passage of the bill South Vietnam's army dispersed from the news alone leaving only one division that held for a few more months.
