The next Syria?

Afghanistan - the next Syria?

The Afghan government is under increasing military pressure from the Taliban, and lacks public confidence or public respect due to its pervasive corruption and toleration of repellent moral turpitude. 

I am concerned that this will be the next US supported regime to collapse due to its own internal flaws and US refusal to intervene with boots on the ground.

Throughout history no outside power has ever succeeded in establishing an enduring government in this fractious nation. Its unique cultural treasures, including superb ancient coins, and other ancient artifacts are now in significant peril, since collapse of the present regime could be rapid and violent.
