In my latest editorial for CGTN, I outline that many items that had to go right, and never did, for the U.S. to have succeeded in Afghanistan.

Understanding what went wrong is necessary, and not because you or I have any interest in bashing the U.S. for ultimately leaving Afghanistan without completing the mission; rather, it is necessary to review what unfolded because the lessons of Afghanistan need to be learned. Put more bluntly – this history cannot repeat itself anywhere around the globe. And for many people inside the United States, accepting this bad news will not be easy.
