Let's reevaluate this.

Stories about not getting Afghans out of Kabul are rampant. But let's listen to the numbers a bit. I am not suggesting we did great, but we didn't do as bad as it appears in the news.

We airlifted 143,000 people. Americans were only 6,000 of those. So we airlifted out, even if we think there were as many NATO people as Americans,  that means 134,000 Afghans were airlifted out of Kabul.

134,000 Afghans is a hell of a lot in 2 weeks. It i more than the population of Colombia South Carolina (the state capital), or Hartford Connecticut (another state capital), or Waco TX home of Baylor as well as Chip and Jonna Gains.

Short answer, it is a lot of people. Not everyone and we should strive to continue, but not "nothing",

What is too much Taylor Swift

 This much ... when the singer is used to send a message about POSSIBLE future problems?
