There is a teacher that my wife and I used to teach with. My wife still speaks with her by text from time to time. She left teaching and became a DOD contractor. She has been working in Kabul for the last several years.

My wife was talking to her by text this afternoon and the said “Things are getting interesting here, but I will be fine.”

I told my wife that she will likely not see her friend again. The Taliban are not very forgiving of Americans, of women, and especially not American women. That poor woman will likely not survive more than a couple of weeks.

My wife thinks that I am wrong. I don’t think she really understands how truly evil some people can be. I am actually thankful for that. There is enough cynicism and distrust coming from me, and I am glad that she is not as jaded, hasn’t seen the evil that I have seen. I hope to keep her from ever seeing the evil that lies in the hearts of some people.

I just hope that things never get that sporty here in the USA, but I fear that they might.

Unfortunately, I would not be surprised if she didn’t make it… There are too many people in the embassy to evacuate it quickly.

    She isn’t even in the embassy.

      She should have been pulled early as ‘non essential’ with many others last week…
      As far as US problems, I suspect it will get sporty in places, and innocent/ unprepared people will get hurt in the process, unfortunately.

She’s toast.
Sorry Man, but she’s dumb for not GTFO early. This as a ‘former contractor’. She’s either going to be taken as a rape-bride (only if she’s cute) but if she’s middle aged or horse faced, they’re either going to -try- to ransom her, or, depending on how many hostages they successfully take, they’re gonna cut off her head and play soccer with it.
HOPEFULLY she was on the last plane out, if not?

How can people possibly think like this woman ? Yep. Fatal mistake.

Will Rogers said “there are three kinds of people: the one who can learn by book reading; the few who learn by observation; and the rest have to pee on the electric fence themselves.” There’s a lot of that going on right now.
