This is an interview with Noam Chomsky on the Taliban. He explains how the US dismissed all offers of dialogue by the Taliban in 2001 and invaded only to show-off its military might, and how that backfired spectacularly 20 years later when they were forced to retreat in shame.

He pins the blame on all the misadventures of the Western World on institutional failures and cites examples such as the Tet offensive when governments were blissfully unaware of ground realities and that led them to make terrible decisions.

He talks about how sanctions always hurt the poor and vulnerable, and end up having exactly the opposite effect to the stated objective.
