After 20 years, 6,294 dead Americans, over 20,000 wounded, and $2 trillion the Afghan War is finally over, and it involved the largest airlift in American history. It was estimated in July that 70,000 Afghans would have to be evacuated (see post above). 122,000 people were evacuated, 6,000 of which were Americans.

President Obama wanted to end the war in Afghanistan. He failed.

President Trump wanted to end the war in Afghanistan. He failed.

President Biden wanted to end the war in Afghanistan. Biden succeeded.

USA Today reports, "The final U.S. troops in Afghanistan flew out of Kabul Monday at 3:29 p.m. EDT, ending a costly 20-year occupation that started after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and leaving a war-torn country now run by the Taliban.

"The withdrawal, announced by the Pentagon, came one minute before Aug. 31 Kabul time, keeping the U.S. in the country right up until a deadline set by President Joe Biden's administration."

“Now, our 20-year military presence in Afghanistan has ended," Biden said in a statement, calling it the "unanimous recommendation of the Joint Chiefs and of all of our commanders on the ground to end our airlift mission as planned."

The sudden surrender by the Afghan army complicated matters for Biden as did an Afghan suicide bomber who murdered thirteen Americans and 170 Afghans.

USA Today continued, "The pullout capped a chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops that was upended after the Taliban quickly took over the Afghan government this month. It turned deadly when a terrorist attack killed 13 U.S. service members and more than 160 Afghan civilians on Thursday as the U.S. scrambled to evacuate Americans and Afghan allies in the final days."

"Tonight's withdrawal signifies both the end of the military component of the evacuation, but also the end of the nearly 20-year mission that began in Afghanistan shortly after September 11, 2001." said Maj. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr.

While 6,000 Americans were able to get out, apparently 250 didn't get the memo. They are still in Afghanistan and, supposedly, they want out. Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken promises to work with the Taliban to get those Americans and others out. There is an economic advantage for the Taliban to work with the U.S. and its allies. The Taliban needs us more than we need them.

President Biden deserves a pat on the back for a job well done.
So, the war is over because all the Americans Pinochijoe just abandoned there are dead now?

Our 20-year blunder in the Middle East created 65 million refugees who don't agree with you. For them the war is just beginning.

Faux Xiden just became the biggest provider or weapons to terrorists in The World surpassing the traitorous Obama Bin Lying. This will be the beginning of WWIII. Add this to the Nukes Obama and Biden and Clinton helped Iran get, and the Billions Obama gave Iran to buy Weapons from Russia, and you have the world on the verge of Ezekiel 38.

A good basis for the Taliban to build their defensive arsenal with which to fight ISIS. Could it be that was what the defeated forces were thinking.
Most are suggesting an alliance will be formed and developed between the new Taliban and the US. This will be in sync with China's and Russia's efforts to rebuild the country.

The opportunities with the new Taliban could turn this US defeat into a win for any country that has intentions of allying with the Taliban.

America's defeat isn't being fully appreciated as it relates to the strategic prize it's now lost. The US was in Afghanistan for something entirely different than humanitarian efforts for women!

That's not our problem. That's a problem for those living in the Middle East.

Do you want it to be our problem? sure sounds like from your reply.

I highlighted and underlined your lie in my posting. I am so sorry that you are too stupid to read for comprehension.
This is what you highlighted.

Incidentally, Trump wanted a total withdrawal from Afghanistan, but he failed.

You are confused. That statement is not a lie, and you failed to explain why you thought it was a lie.

Why is it Trump Republicans have so much trouble communicating. Is it because they lie so much? It is difficult, if not impossible, to support a lie. Trump tried that for nine months and all he did was make himself look like an idiot.

After nine months of his lies, GOP leaders shut him down. nothing substantial from Trump in weeks.

I suggest you learn a lesson from Trump. Stop lying. As is the case here, you look like a fool.

In case you haven't been paying attention which is apparently the case, millions of refugees have fled to Europe..... some of them are probably here.

Our country is really good at bombing countries and then bringing refugees here on our tab. Unless you believe all these Asians with brick homes and BMW SUV's owning their own salons all made it on their own... at the very same time that homeless veterans are sleeping on the streets.

Don't need a graphic to know Biden just gave $88 Billion in weapons to terrorists and Obama gave Iran $150 Billion in addition to Obama and Clinton arming proxy groups like Al Nusra, and The Muslim Brotherhood and others in conflicts. Those two handed out enough arms and cash to terrorists to pay for China's defense budget of $250 Billion a year.

Pakistan's ex-president Perv Musharraf was pretending to be working with the US while at the same time being in cahoots with the Taliban. it's these damn Pakistanis who i don't trust, folks!

the Pakistanis knew where Bin Laden was, and they hid it from America!
