    US arms manufacturing companies are not happy.

    Good! Now, all the money spent on a useless and forever war could be spent at home for health, education, and infrastructure!

      @M James Tell it to spend and tax cut Republicans.
      Pass that infrastructure bill the GOP doesn’t want Joe.

      @Illphaqup YOUTUBE I’m for running the country, not running it into the ground like Republicans do?

      @Daves Ontherocks you mean like the Democrats are doin now? BWAHAHAHAHA man it really must be awesome to blind deaf and stupid.

      Where did most of the money spent, go? Pay for American troops, pay for the engineers and workers who built the war machinery, and a small amount to build infrastructure for the Afghan people, like construction materials, medicine for the sick, and schools for girls. We’ll probably still give Afghanistan aid for their infrastructure, but the Taliban will seize it. Do you think we’ll stop paying our troops? Do you think we’ll stop developing and building weapon systems? The US leaving Afghanistan will no more free up money for US infrastructure, than the UK leaving the EU freed up money for the NHS.

      @Deborah Freedman Who cares where they spent that, but that’s over now. We can pay our national debt down. To make the so conservative gop happy?

  4. WOW a Russian GEN said you will not win ?

  5. How about Iraq?

    US should withdraw from any fighting until they figure out what it is they fighting for ohhh it ain’t WS

  7. What is all this whining about a date being cited by the President. Wasn’t the date already agreed upon by the treaty May 1? All President Biden is doing is slowing down the withdrawal a few months, but the treaty already set a date. We could keep a few hundred special forces to continue to train Afghan Security forces. We have other areas we need to focus (the straits of Tawain, Ukraine). I served there in Kandahar 2003-2005..The Afghans are beautiful people, and yes the Gen is right…the Hindu Kush are among the grandest mountains I have ever seen. But they must take responsibility for their future. Our mission of destroying AlQaeda is over and accomplished. I do think that many of these places need to be shown very clearly how much tourism dollars could be made if they simply got their act together.

    • There is wealth to be made by Afghans helping all other Afghans obtain a 21st century level of medicine, electrical power, food transportation and storage, plumbing systems, … Tourism relies on other people’s left over dollars. Increasing the home grown wealth is more stable.

    They want us to leave

    Remember when Biden got the vaccine in Nov 2020 he said in the debates (quoting Fauci) wouldn’t be possible until 2021 or even 2022?
    This seems like the same media reporting madness.

  10. Sorry Admiral, but enough is enough. Remember the Vietnam War.

  11. Stavridis as I remember supported Obama’s covert, CIA regime change operation in Syria after it was “discovered”. ( Operation Timber Sycamore 2012-2017) Illegal under International Law as well as the UN Charter it is credited with introducing Isis in to Syria, drawing Russia in, legally, at Syria’s request, and laying blame for the subsequent bloodbath at the US doorstep.

  12. Pray that the Troops in Afghanistan stay vigilant until they leave.

  13. This is being done. So Mr. Potato can move our military forces to Europe and to the South China Sea.

      No, its being done because you are broke and wont be able to pay your troops for much longer. Say goodbye, Oh Great Caesar.

      @hakuna matata Imagine being so brainwashed that you would post something like that and believe it too. Fail.

    Someone draw Joe a picture with numbers so he can remember what he says

  15. We should have been over there ten years tops. Not twenty😄

    Plot Twist : all the troops come home to be added to the homeless population around the country.

    Nicolle’s voice sounds like she smokes too many cigarettes and drinks too much coffee. Raspy voice gets the mute button.

    Folks, if we haven’t fixed Afghanistan after 20 years — then we never will. Just get out of there already.

    • Nicholas Conder | April 15, 2021 at 7:54 PM | Reply

      Sadly, knowing the history of the country over the last 200 years, it will be impossible to fix. The issue is the xenophobic atavistic attitude that the hill tribes have. They fear change, and will aggressively try to eradicate those who threaten their ingrained culture. Unless a way is found to calm their fears and not tread on their sensitivities, it is likely the country will descend once again into chaos and civil war.

    If the Afghan people want a better ending, I believe they should gain the courage to demand it from their leaders.
    If the Afghan leaders do not provide what the people want then it’s up to the people to elect more favorable leaders.
    If they are committing humanitarian crimes, let the United Nations decide how to fix it, that’s their job. Not everything can be put on America’s shoulders.
    Right now America has other issues with other nations.

    What right have we to impose our feelings on them?
