Afghan Withdraw: Biden’s Worst Foreign Policy Gaffe

Lessons Never Learned

What a waste. What an embarrassment. These images are not memes of war. They are lives lost, wounded, and traumatized by 20 long years of war, and now the unfolding events of hostile takeover by a once weakened enemy. In less than two months since President Biden made this announcement to withdraw troops out of Afghanistan, it is clear that Taliban has ran over any gains American forces accomplished in Afghanistan including establishing a 300,000 strong Army. Or not so strong after all. They have been willing to lay down arms faster, than stand up and fight for their freedom. Meanwhile Afghanistan has surrendered to savage ideology of the Taliban. They are back, battle-hardened and are here to stay. The girls who thought they could be in school and be an engineer have been told to stay in their place. Because Taliban hates women being educated let alone without a face covering. Was this ultimately going to be the fate of Afghanistan, and Biden did us a favor by rushing it. Will we ever look back in a thousand years and conclude that he made the right decision. Its sad to see soldiers deployed, with tears in their eyes, and promising their young children to be back from the hell-hole that is Afghanistan. May be this time, they are back for good.
