Even a blind squirrel finds a nut and Biden grifting off Trump policies has finally made a good decision.
Biden announced that all US troops will withdraw from Afghanistan before the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks saying, “it is time to end America’s longest war.”
“We went to Afghanistan because of a horrific attack that happened 20 years ago,” Biden said. “That cannot explain why we should remain there in 2021.”
President Trump attempted to do the same thing last fall however, the Democrat controlled House moved to block him.
Matter of fact, Biden’s incoming national security team were against Trump pulling out of the region.
“Quickly reducing to 2500 would narrow Biden Admin options and undercut peace talks, but wouldn’t create the utter upheaval of going to zero that fast,” Laurel E. Miller, a former top State Department official who worked on Afghanistan and Pakistan diplomacy for both Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama, said on Twitter last week.
There weren’t any peace talks, Biden just said we are leaving. There is speculation that the swamp creatures in Washington didn’t want Trump to be the one to end the war, they wanted it to be Biden.
“The plan has long been in together, out together,” Biden said. “U.S. troops as well as forces deployed by our NATO allies and operational partners will be out of Afghanistan before we mark the 20th anniversary of that heinous attack on September 11th.”
“We cannot continue the cycle of extending or expanding our military presence in Afghanistan hoping to create ideal conditions for withdrawal and expecting a different result,” Biden said.
So far the only thing good to come out of the Biden administration is when they grift off Trump policies.
Pres. Biden: “No one wants to say that we should be in Afghanistan forever. But they insist now is not the right moment to leave…When will it be the right moment to leave? One more year? Two more years? 10 more years?”
“That’s how we got here.” https://t.co/GfGTpZeFKR pic.twitter.com/BQPD7HhdrE
