Eric Margolis joins the show to talk about President Trump’s apparent intentions to pull U.S. troops out of Afghanistan. This idea has met with a surprising amount of pushback—somehow ending the war is seen as more shameful than the war itself. Scott and Margolis fear that no matter when the America leaves, whoever is responsible will get blamed for the inevitable chaos that ensues, just like Obama was blamed for removing troops from Iraq. There is no solution to this problem, says Margolis, other than staying in Afghanistan forever.
