quote

“A reinvestment in Afghanistan, because of how dangerous the security threat is, I don’t think it can happen without the US. When the US shut down its bases, that did pull the plug on Nato. Without the US, there is no framework and Nato or the UK would have to regenerate their capacity – which for a military the size of the US is doable, for anyone else it would be prohibitively expensive.”
