Twenty years after it first set foot in Afghanistan, by its Special Forces linking up with the local Northern Alliance, the United States is withdrawing from this war-torn, land-locked Asian nation, leaving it at the mercy of the Mujahedeen, or Islamist Taliban, which swept its way back into power. Regardless of the wisdom or even inevitability of the decision to cut and leave, the images of desperate Afghanis clinging to U.S. Air Force C17 transport Aircraft taking off at Kabul airport have sent a clear message of an American retreat. What repercussions are now expected, regionally and globally?
