Former Obama Advisor: ‘It's Time To Turn The Page’ On Afghanistan | The Last Word | MSNBC


  1. Fox: “Biden has no idea how bad this is going to be. What a terrible decision.”
    Everyone: “But Biden is just following the deal that t’rump put in place.”
    Fox: **stares back blankly** “Biden has no idea….”
    Everyone: **groan**

  2. When will America learn that you can’t force democracy upon a nation? What you could do is invest in that nation so democracy can develop and rise up.

  3. How about the $3 trillion Afghanistan has in resources? Will China and Russia steal those resources now?

  4. US and Indian conspiracy has not completed against China Russia Pakistan and Iran. So that they need more time to complete it. Taliban must kick off their back and out of them from Afghan soil.

  5. The page was turned before Biden even occupied the Oval Office. A withdrawal was arranged for 2021 at least a year ago, so all Biden has to do is close the book. We will have to wait and see if he is capable of even that.
