More for Afghanistan . . .

John Hinderaker of PowerLine has commented in a reasonable manner on a speech by President Trump regarding the future  of Afghanistan and an American role in it.  One reason for caution, he observed, is that the place is “culturally backward”.  Perhaps it is.  Is it unique?

A few days ago I watched the first few episodes of a very highly rated TV show “True Detective”. Hinderaker’s dismissal of Afghanistan seems very much like the pot calling the kettle black.  American decadence increasingly appears terminal.  “Culturally backward” ?  He should look around about him, not least perhaps taking time to reflect upon the quality of many of the “responses” to posts on Power Line.
