Is this Kabul 13 or Tet 68?
It is remarkable - and sad - how much Afghanistan today is like Vietnam then.
And it will end the same way. The US will declare a face-saving "victory", and pull out. The insurgents will then overrun the demoralized government forces. Then we'll see helicopters taking off from the embassy rooftop again.
It's almost unbearably sad.
Hang around. Zero is doing everything possible to make our exit from Afghanistan look like Saigon '75.

It’s not Tet 68, I know that one.
