Resigning from the Empire

Expressing his frustration with an occupation in Afghanistan that is doomed to fail, citing similarities between the U.S. effort and the failed Soviet occupation of the same country, reminding us that the futility is reminiscent of American involvement in Vietnam, calling the entire project a “complex, opaque and Sisyphean mission” that is strategically bankrupt to the core, Matthew Hoh has submitted a compelling and bold letter of resignation from his post as the Senior Civilian Representative for the U.S. Government in Zabul Province. The whole document is well worth reading.
