NEVER FORGET THE KABUL 13!

By DIA

"Unfortunate" is the wrong word. To say that the catastrophic events at Abbey Gate were merely unfortunate would be to:

Dilute the magnitude of the blunder deliberately
Dilute the audacity of negligence, and
Dilute the unfathomable depth of the betrayal that unfolded.

August 26, 2021. This date will forever be etched into the annals of history. A stark reminder of what happens when a superpower, one that prides itself on its unmatched military prowess and intelligence capabilities, flagrantly disregards actionable intel.

How could the U.S. government and its military echelons, armed with some of the world's most sophisticated intelligence networks, let over 180 innocent lives be lost?

How could they stand by as 13 of their own sons and daughters of their land were mercilessly slaughtered?

It's no mere oversight, but an egregious failing of duty, and an insult to the very ideals America claims to uphold. Suppose we, as a global community and as American citizens, do not demand answers and hold those in power accountable. In that case, we are complicit in every tear shed, every life lost, and every ounce of grief that resonates from that ill-fated day at Kabul's Abbey Gate.

It's a stark reality: In warfare lives are lost, often needlessly. Yet, every single one of those lives holds stories, dreams, families, and aspirations that were brutally cut short. The 13 U.S. service members who made the ultimate sacrifice at Abbey Gate were more than just numbers on a casualty list. They were brave souls who stepped into the line of duty, fully aware of the risks, but driven by a commitment to safeguard others. Their loss is not just a tragedy for their families, but for an entire nation that they valiantly served.

To forget them would be an unthinkable injustice. We must ensure that their memories remain etched in our collective consciousness, serving as a perennial reminder of the real cost of policy missteps and leadership failures. Every moment of silence, every memorial erected, every tear shed in their memory is a commitment that we will never let their sacrifices be in vain. They were our protectors, our heroes. And now, it's our solemn duty to be the bearers of their legacies.

NEVER FORGET THEM!
