I imagine that the chumpanzee-in-chief would`ve no doubt done something completely idiotic along the lines of pres jrs "Mission Accomplished" farce.The rednex,proud bois,and other like minded "good people" would`ve lapped it up.This is precisely what they want to happen. USA wants the deal to fall through.
9/11/21...I would have expected such theatrics from Trump more than Biden. What gimmicky nonsense.
The only thing the US cares about at this point is Afghanistan becoming a haven for terrorists like Al-Qaeda and other such groups. But you don't need troops permanently based in Afghanistan for CT ops. Using the military to fight terrorism is like using a sledgehammer to swat a fly. Regardless, it's in the interests of the regional players to keep the region free of terrorism.And if the withdrawal indeed happens?
There is much truth to what you are saying. I think Afghanistan has come a LONG ways since 2001 but has it come far enough to be even semi-responsible for its own act. When they did ever have even a semblance of prosperity? I remember after 9/11, a so-called Afghan govt official Harun Amin was on American channel blaming Pakistan for all the problems with Afghanistan and the guy was boasting about Afghanistan so good and prosperous under Zahir Shah. Well, idiot, even under Zahir Shah most of Afghan cities infra was worse than a B-Grade Pakistani city like Hyderabad and whatever sheen there was in Afghanistan was because of purposeful, limited direct Lipstick-on-Pig by the Soviets or other powers.afghans will find another goat to milk . taliban cant live without jihad . afghans other hands can not live without aid . over all war is life line for afghan . peace means both terrorists afghan gov and even civilians have to work hard and earn bread and butter .
We are heading towards a full blown civil war in Afghanistan with major spillover to Pakistan. A lot of US military hardware will be in hands of these contractors controlling ISIS and other groups.All US troops to leave Afghanistan by September 11, 2021
Patently false headline.
First, the keyword used was: US Combat Troops
This says nothing of JSOC, or "training and support" missions, or private security contractors who are more numerous than US troops, among many others.
US will likely maintain a light footprint in the region. How that comes about remains to be seen.
- The number of armed contractors in Afghanistan has increased more than 65% since Trump took office
- Troop levels are down, but US says over 18,000 contractors remain in Afghanistan
I so wish this to be true. Only time will tell.Like I said, Biden only delayed due to politics. All indications showed he'd leave Afghanistan before the end of the year.
Even him ignoring Pakistan is a huge indication that the US no longer considers Afghanistan war worth fighting, and as such no longer need Pakistan post 2021. Ignoring Pakistan, of course, is gonna bite them in the *** in the future, because US think tanks and presidential advisers tend to be morons with bricks for brains. I keep repeating it, but it's worth repeating, these US think tanks and presidential advisers get their history right, but learn the wrong lessons from it.
