In Afghanistan, I don’t know how others view it, but leaving 8000-9000 troops in place is not ending a war as I see it, as the author points out.
The China trade war (why is everything a “war” in this country?) is a boondoggle beyond imagination. In 2017, before the “war” began, China bought $19.5 Billion dollars worth of farm products, it was announced the other day, from here on out they will buy $0.00. That’s huge, and will have a tremendous effect on our economy.
Biden might just win in 2020 after all.
