On a rainy day in early May, weeks after President Joe Biden announced the U.S. exit from Afghanistan, senior leaders from across the government gathered in the basement of the Pentagon for a broad interagency drill to rehearse the withdrawal plan.

It was going to be a disaster no matter how they did it. It's better to rip off the band-aid than prolong the agony. The Taliban and Al-Quida would've had more stationary targets. It didn't help that the Afghani government was already starting to run and the Afghani lost it's nerve.

Belldinger wanted permanent American occupation of Afghanistan.

If only Biden was a warmonger like the prior Presidents.

This thread is about the Biden administration deliberating the withdraw and it's already all about Trump.

You people are pathological.

The MIC were mad that their gravy train was ending. Biden did the right thing to end the boondoggle of Afghanistan occupation. Occupations eventually destroy the occupier. The US has been crippled by war spending.

The Afghan government and its Army knew it was screwed when the orange fascist and Fat Mike started dealing with the Taliban and one of the first things agreed upon was the release of thousands of terrorist killers bent on rolling the country back to the days when Mohammad was walking the earth. Face it, the Afghans gave up rather than fight, and they would have done the same if the US military had remained in place or not. Remember the Tehran Embassy disaster? Exiting Afghanistan may well have prevented another sort of event like this, one where the result may not have been so fast (at only 444 days), easy or 'successful'...

Just eight days after the 2020 election, then-President Donald Trump was so determined to end the war in Afghanistan during his presidency that he secretly signed a memo to withdraw all troops by January 15, 2021, according to a new book, "Peril," from journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

Bunker Bitch wanted to withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan by 1-15-21 but didn't have the balls to pull the trigger. That's so typical.
