US must not turn away from Asia

Richard Pearson and Frank Jannuzi comment on US engagement with Asia after Kabul. “The catastrophe in Kabul evoked scenes eerily similar to the fall of Saigon to North Vietnamese forces and the less well-known fall two weeks earlier of Phnom Penh to the Khmer Rouge. The older generation might also draw comparisons to the swift collapse of Chiang Kai-shek’s government in China in 1949 and its hurried evacuation to Taiwan.”
