  2. Well, Afghanistan is not a US colony. It is a sovereign country that has its own government, army, has fixed boundaries, has its own language and culture. The time has come for the country to take care of itself. This country had 20 years to do so during the presence of the US military, US military, political and economic aid.

    • I agree … I’m all for helping other countries they have to help themselves at some point

      @T K Helping by invading them and killing their people?

    • @ExternalInputs quiet down you Sad TROLL
      Pushing misinformed information. WHY?

    • What the hell have the Afghan government been doing that after *20 years* they’re still not ready to take over the security of their own country?! It doesn’t make any sense. How many more years should the US waste there?

    If only the rest of the world felt this way💚

  4. They must know it is impossible to get peace. We would be there forever. The only choice is whether we want to be there forever or leave.

    • It’s not impossible. I’m an Afghan and My grand grandfather was a Soviet Pilot and he died in 1943 and he told his son( My grandfather) that we (Soviets) can’t beat the German and at the time Germany was in Stalingrad and close to Moscow. Of course he died before the war was over but he was wrong and Nazis were beaten. What I’m saying is that nothing is impossible. If I and My people give up hope of Peace then we are nothing. It’s We who have to get rid of Taliban. I hope My words have not offended you.

    • Project veritas.

    • @twentyfivekgplants tomake1kgbeef
      Are you a REPTILIAN ? OR just a FREAKING Nut

    • That’s it. CNN is trotting this politician out to concern troll about women and girls to manufacture consent. Where’s all this concern for women and girls when it concerns Saudi Arabia?

    • @Taye Owusu Lol. Well I think We both know US don’t care about Women or democracy as long as it’s not against their policies.

  5. I am concerned that things aren’t just gonna stabilize in the region… But I don’t know how helpful we really ever were.

      CNN Director Caught on Hidden Camera Saying The Network is ‘Trying to Help’ BLM By Only Pushing Stories That Implicate White People and that reporting about black on Asian hate crimes would “set back” BLM, which they wouldn’t want. This is what editors & producers of CNN say behind closed doors.

    • The Afghans are literally begging US to stay and you still doubt that the US is wanted by Afghans.

    • If the end of violence is a condition for the US to leave they will *never* leave

    • We aren’t there to “Help” The USA is there to dominate over the middle east because of 9/11. We aren’t there for resources. Anyone that thinks we are there for resources is a fool, but 20 years, in the middle east. We don’t need to be there. Let to people pick how they want their people to live. Nations raise an fall if they don’t learn from their mistakes.

  6. Afghanistan is called the Graveyard of Empires for a reason.

    Hello 👋 from Cambodia 🇰🇭

  8. Holy wars are always a losing battle; an imaginary enemy can’t be beat, ever… history proves this too many times

    • And yet the US engages in it daily. How odd?

    • @K Man its only illegal if you state the Kabul government is a puppet. Is it? The Afghans i know i think support the Kabul government.

    • When things were at their very worst:
      2 Suns, Cross in the sky, 2 comets will collide = don`t be afraid – repent, accept Lord`s Hand of Mercy.
      The first sign – the Earth will spin faster.
      The second sign concerns the sun, which will loom larger, brighter and begin to spin.
      Scientists will say it was a global illusion.
      Beaware – Jesus will never walk in flesh again.
      After WW3 – rise of the “ man of peace“ from the East = Antichrist – the most powerful, popular, charismatic and influential leader of all time. Many miracles will be attributed to him. He will imitate Jesus in every conceivable way.
      Don`t trust „pope“ Francis = the False Prophet
      – will seem to rise from the dead
      – will unite all Christian Churches and all Religions as one.
      One World Religion = the seat of the Antichrist.
      Benedict XVI is the last true pope – will be accused of a crime of which he is totally innocent.

      – banking collapse was deliberately masterminded by the Antichrist

      – Antichrist will step in and create a false peace in the state of Israel by joining them with palestine in an unlikely alliance.

      – „He will recite extracts from My Teachings, which he will passionately proclaim from every secular stage in the world, until people sit up and take notice of him.“

      Holy + War , religion is to ingrained in that region to change the hearts and minds . Like Lincoln and his General who served 2 terms , Grant never changed the hearts and minds in the American south land . Make THIS NATION the best it can be , before we send 1 solder or 1 more dollar anywhere . Take care of our own 1st .

    • There isn’t anything holy about war.

    As only a civilian in the US; On the surface, I only see both sides dying instead of negotiating

  10. You cant get peace with those who don’t want peace. Bring them home!

  11. Hopefully Afghanistan has some preparation for the withdrawal of troupes, like Fatima Gailian said, we knew they would leave someday. Anyway it sounds like she needs to have a chat with the Taliban

    I love how she’s in Qatar and not even Afghanistan

    We cannot stay there. It has been long enough. I’m sorry but her government needs to get it together. It is not fair for our troops to be away from their loved ones any longer. My heart goes out to the families who have lost their sons and daughters who were there. We can only do so much then it’s time to take full responsibility for your own country and what’s going on there. Decades have passed time to come home.

  14. There were opportunities to partition years ago, but the delusion of total victory obtained and now there is total failure.

    Sad to say but it’s time the US 🇺🇸 worry about its own,we have a war going on within our own country that needs to be dealt with before we worry with other nations for sure

    two super powers have been to your country and your country fought to get them out. you said it best one country North and South DMZ!

  17. They want us out by May 1st. Might want to have another chat with them about expediting an end to their quarrels in order to move the peace objective forward.

    So powerful. Let’s start here and set an example. Listen to her! The whole world needs to stop all the fighting. Peace my fellow humans 💓

    If it wasn’t figured out in 20 years, it’s never going to happen. They knew it was coming for years. It’s time, they need to run their own country.
