11. Instead of asking what the US goal is, ask what Trump's goal is. Because the same "what" with

a different "how" will yield different results.

And Trump cares about the headline "what" and not an iota about the "how." Which guarantees it will go badly.

The US goal, imo, should be best aggregate outcome for all stakeholders. Because that way lies medium to long term stability.

There is no point ghosting Afghanistan today if it means we get a new 9/11 and new Bush Doctrine in 2030.
