  1. The war on terror achived nothing but producing terrorist….making the world a worse place

      Those terrorist existed before the US

    • @Jonathan Peres The taliban fought the Soviets and got help from the US – later you named them terrorists and fought them. now you retreat – totally without any sense.

      @Minimax yeah because they lied about occupation and treaty agreements

      @dingus What oil came from Afghanistan? None.

    • @Deborah Freedman the war an terror was in Afghanistan and the middle east – as you surely know. both wars are terrible failures. remember Bush on the aircraft carrier “mission accomplished”…what a disgrace

    Wow, Jeremy looks different! I have missed his commentary

  3. Joe needs a translator, it’s getting hard to understand what he’s saying when he mumbles his words together.

    I’m all for the withdrawal. But how convenient. Now that China has big oil interests …

      @Donna Brockbank the issue is that because Biden does it, it’s suddenly ok and then the otherside is when Biden’s does shady deals with his son over seas we suddenly ignore the facts against him. Do you see standards here?

    • Donna Brockbank | April 15, 2021 at 1:53 PM | Reply

      @The Highly Offensive different advisors. Different by listening not wanting only yes people. Stay in Mexico isn’t a solution. Military money because his people stole money for the wall isn’t a solution. Sending children back into the desert isn’t a solution. The Senate Republicans made a big deal about the one dead body when there are probably numerous dead bodies.

      @The Highly Offensive Biden did not have anything to do with his son’s over seas dealings. It is still under investigation.

    • Deborah Freedman | April 15, 2021 at 4:04 PM | Reply

      China has been helping Iran, because of its need for oil, not Afghanistan. The Taliban is one terrorist group that Iran hasn’t aided, they actually helped the US in overthrowing them. Your point is pointless.

    • The Highly Offensive | April 15, 2021 at 4:39 PM | Reply

      @Deborah Freedman the point is that us pulling out of Afghanistan opens up the middle east as a whole. Yes since December China and Iran have made things official and yes moving out of Afghanistan we are giving China more room to base roots throughout these areas. Could very much so care less if you think it’s pointless. Some people swear that their neighbors are shapeshifting lizards. That concerns me about as much as your opinion. You probably think I’m some qanon nut too? Thing is hunny we as a people need to get real. And the point is very valid. Stand by and give it a few years

  5. brilliantly said, ty both.

    We should have left the garbage dump of Afghanistan in 2002.

    Happy to see MSNBC willing to let a guest say pulling out of Afghanistan is a good idea. Maybe if they also did this under the previous administration we would already be out.

  10. So he agrees with President Trump’s decision then and Biden is now delaying withdrawal to a later date. Got it.

    I had to clean my phone 3 times Biden is spitting all over the place

    And nobody mentions that the US’s word would have been dust?

    “War is over if you want it” – John Lennon (always relevant then and in the hereafter). Also “Forever War” is one of the great anti-war science fiction novels that deserves to be adapted to a film or miniseries. It’s like we have a “meta” president that gets the message.

    I chew underoo’s I purchase at the five and dime. They give me a special bulk rate

  15. America needs to gain strength now, and one way to facilitate that is to stop exerting so much of it in a place that becomes less important by the day.

    Biden has respect for our troops dead and alive not like Trump who called them suckers and losers

  17. Pete Rembranch | April 15, 2021 at 2:07 PM | Reply

    We’re acquiring a reputation for pulling out of conflicts we were keen to get in to, and leaving our allies holding the can.

    Does anybody trust us anymore?

    Open free internet? What open free internet?

  19. It’s a good idea to recall all your troops out of theatre as you will need all of them for the upcoming war……..just sayin’

  20. Joe’s use of the word robust makes me wanna crack open a cold one
