  1. I like a US President that stand before the people and utter the words “I’ve inherited a shitstorm that cannot be easily fixed” rather than continually perpetuate the same tired narrative of how great things were for the past 20 years.

  2. I agree with him on this decision, but what about the Americans that are still in Afghanistan? Are they going to be able to safely get out of there?!

    1. Are they white? Rich? Related to senators or congressmen?

      If not, they are not true Americans and are disposable/expendable.

      Only the top 1% corrupt elite rich have the true rights as Americans, with access to advanced healthcare, quality education and safe and nice living environments. Otherwise, they are just glorified servants deluded into thinking they have equal rights

  3. This is not the first war we have been in. I thank all the SOLDIER AND HELPER IN AFGHANISTAN ! ARE COUNTY BEEN AT WAR FOR OVER 250 YEARS. FREEDOM NOT FREE ! THANK YOU TO ARE PEOPLE FOR THEIR SERVICES ! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ! THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA !!!!

    1. I’ve got 12th winning thanks to mr Ronald, he’s really the best I have made £18,200 in days of working with him

    2. I met Mr Ronald for the first time at a conference in Manchester I invested £22,000 and traded in some couple of weeks making close to £152,759

    3. Seeing alot of success stories, he’s must be an honest and trustworthy person for people to say this good about him

    4. He’s not like other brokers that will start telling you stories and excuses why they trade didn’t go well after collecting your money
