Biden Deploys 5,000 Troops To Afghanistan To Aid In 'Safe Drawdown'

  1. What happened to the Afghan army that we were supposed to train so that they could defend themselves????

    1. Who knows of the prseident of afgan sell his country to taliban?because it said USA trained them how to fight how to defend why they not defend their country?someone makes money there

  2. Twenty years training in the image of the USA military including weapons & 300 thousand Afghani troops can’t protect departing USA .

  3. So 20 years and trillions of taxpayer dollars later it was all for naught. Just imagine what all that money could’ve done here at home.

    1. International banks fund both sides and it goes right back into the politicians/elites pockets. I am as of today no longer a democrat. Starting to see through the b.s. these politicians think we’re dumb and will keep fighting against each other. We need to fight against them they are the ones creating all this havoc.

    2. @Michael Schaefer There were 612,719 abortions in 2017 per the CDC. The average cost of an abortion is roughly $750 (it’s often cheaper in the first trimester but let’s keep this estimate high for the sake of this example). That makes $459,539,250 per year spent on abortions. The US has spent an average of $54,000,000,000 per year on the war in Afghanistan between 2001 and 2019 (source: The Balance, Forbes/Statista). Therefore abortions wouldn’t eat up that much (0.77%) of this hypothetical reallocated budget.

    1. I thinks its great to see what Islam is . The fact the so called, “Moderate Islams” dont care about whats going on there says a lot. We shouldn’t care either and just use Afghanistan as a symbol of what Muslim control looks like.

    1. @Don Juan—–>> u ever heard of the great and powerful Pres Donald J Trump? He and Mike Pompeo had THE PLAN for a strategic and Conditions Based withdrawl…… Bungling Biden and his socialist CAPOS n Pentagon trashed it because it had Pres Trump’s name on it.

    1. @C Thomas Trump gave a deadline for us to pull out this month. That wasn’t peace, that was them waiting for us to leave.

    2. @James Guy Photography Evidently you didn’t take any history classes in your “photography education”… Dull wit…

    3. @James Guy Photography I never wanted my taxes spent on Afghanistan, stupid. I’m GLAD we are leaving. I don’t give a F about women’s rights in the middle east.

    4. Not really we had these guys living in caves and were about to put a total end to the Taliban but Obama pulled us off their trail.

  4. Such an inaccurate speech: “personnel” is not “citizens”. We know that lots of citizens are struggling to get out of the country and get their families out.

    1. Sort of like all the New Yorkers fleeing the Communist corruption in NY? They’re pouring into Florida in huge numbers.

    1. @Michael Schaefer Senator Biden didn’t do the planning – the war mongers of Bush gang did. The same gang presented a lot of lies to everyone, including the Congress. Get over defending barbarians

    2. @marko polo—-> Demonrats NEVER take responsibility for ANY OF THEIR BLUNDERS. 1 of their guiding principles IS BLAME A REPUBLICAN, ESPECIALLY PRES TRUMP.

    3. @San Geet BIDEN IS ON VACATION RIGHT NOW…….. WHO IS TO BLAME FOR THAT? IS THAT ALSO TRUMP’S FAULT??? HE MADE BIDEN GO ON VACATION WHILE WE LOSE A WAR?

  5. Time magazine 2000: *Taliban days are numbered*
    Taliban 2021: *Americas days are numbered “in Afghanistan”*

    1. As an American, I kind of respect the Taliban. Although they’re animals, like the badger, they’re vicious & relentless, and they outlasted us. We’ll done, gentlemen!

    2. @A Fridge Too Far They’re extreme, but they’re not animals. They found wine and alcohol caches in the governor’s mansion and destroyed it all. Gotta respect that level of austerity, even though it makes me a lil sad to see that wine go to waste

    3. @Kyle A yeah, they do stand by their convictions. Like I said, there are things to respect about them.

    1. I understand the premise, but now is also the time to keep eyes peeled for that ‘sub that doesn’t come up’ Tonkin style. Think tanks will be trying to spin this into a clash that leads to more clashes and whoops now we’re back in

    1. @Cole Chillen —–>> u ever heard of the great and powerful Pres Donald J Trump? He and Mike Pompeo had THE PLAN for a strategic and Conditions Based withdrawl…… Bungling Biden and his socialist CAPOS n Pentagon trashed it because it had Pres Trump’s name on it.

  6. I wonder where this ally, the now ex-Afghan Leader will settle down with his American Mullah Dollahs. Doha?

  7. Imagine a draft dodger sending 5000 troops to possibly lose their lives over some BS we have nothing to do with…oh wait

  8. So, we send 6,000 “in” to pull 3,000 “out” & then send 5,000 more “in” & when it’s 11,000 left—we send the FIRST 3,000 to go GET that 11,000?
    & our Generals are Millionaires?
