The Admiral says -"I worry very much for what is coming into our land and to our Allies and the entire world." Point taken; the game is on; noted elsewhere is the statement that the current circumstances are unmatched in any time of modern human history; except that the betrayal did not come from outside the American experience: as it is written, the failure came from within. And to highlight the dramatic aspects of how wrong the American government could get, one need only look at what the founders said: they knew!
More importantly, if proper understanding and not improper speculation had been acted upon in the timing that was historically projected, the international criminal intent now seen on world-wide display may have been defended against; but none of this was unanticipated, since it is written, judgment is on its way.
As it has been said, intimated and blatantly pronounced, the ME is the crucible in and upon which humanity is to be weighed and determinations of equity and inequities are to be balanced between hatred of the Children of Abraham and the love of Israel as it is being tested for obedience to the rule of eternal law.
To be sure, Afghanistan accomplished much. The enemies of Israel can hardly wait (listen to Nasrallah, Raisi to start), and others as they think that they now have carte blanche with American integrity in shambles as who is left to defend Israel. Europe must now fall back to ancient arguments of Crusader advances of empire to stave off the newly revived Islamic vows of Shar'ia in a western world that cannot envision what resistance is necessary to keep from being overwhelmed and subjugated; many are asking: what do we do now?
There is an answer; but pushback from the multitude of secularistic democratic-socialist voices will continue the delusion that Islam is weak; it is not Islam's weakness that requires confrontation; it is the humanist delusion that mankind can find an answer to keep from being sucked into its own destruction.
In the final analysis, that while America did, at one time, have the key to keep from this moment, weakness in belief undermined that strength and here we are. What's next? The answer is still in the same place.
Others have looked; but still they have not believed; it is in the Tanakh; it always has the answer.
