Joe Biden explains US troops withdrawal from Afghanistan | Full speech 1

 

President Joe Biden formally announced his decision to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan before September 11, the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon that led the US into its longest war.
"We cannot continue the cycle of extending or expanding our military presence in Afghanistan hoping to create the ideal conditions for our withdrawal, expecting a different result," Biden said.
"I am now the fourth American president to preside over an American troop presence in Afghanistan. Two Republicans. Two Democrats," he added. "I will not pass this responsibility to a fifth."
In a sign he views his remarks as a historic bookend to the prolonged conflict, he delivered them from precisely the same spot in the White House Treaty Room that President George W. Bush announced the start of the war on October 7, 2001. Afterward he'll visit the section of Arlington National Cemetery where many of America's war dead from Afghanistan are buried.

    Get them mental help after bringing them back…..
    Don’t leave them without it

    • @Elite Dragon “actually hurting” yes, It is actually hurting vets. For me, it will be the difference from being able to afford a place to live and not being able to. But more over, when you are injured in service to the country, you are told time and time again you will be provided for. Vets should not have to fight the faceless, uncaring, government agency for benefits they are entitled to.

    • @tommyboy Problem isn’t spending more money. The problem is, todays buzz word, “systemic” corruption in the VA. VA’s all over the country lie and cut corners with veteran care to get more money then do everything in their power to keep it for themselves. I can’t confirm this sort of behavior officially, I just know what myself and other vets are experiencing, and the stories of former VA workers who can collaborate these sort of behaviors.

    • @sister salads Far from everyone, you fools are trying to convince the majority that there are more of you morons. Peace

      @Lui C I was a combat engineer in the 503rd. Ran over a mine in an MRAP. Luckily I was the worst with a small concussion. VA comes up with every excuse not to consider me a wounded vet. Meanwhile I know a mechanic who was stationed at Bagram who dropped a brake rotor on his foot and broke a toe. He receives as much relief and benefits as someone who lost an arm. Honestly makes me regret all the time I served.

    • @Lonely Wanderer You aint had me at all…so what are you saying….but being triggered bum? You mad? 🙂 Trump was over as soon as he was elected, I MEAN CHEATED IN……and Im glad we fired him. And lets not forget the dozens of administrators during his term who went to jail. Straight scum bags. And I can’t wait till his lawsuits come up, where he gets smacked around like that garbage Matt GEATZ. Karma is real.

  3. I served a year in Afghanistan. Most people I knew over seas been ready for the war to be over. There was never a winning solution to end the war. If we could not get done what we needed to do in 2 decades then we never going to. At this point we just there to line corporations and contractors pockets.

      @Lalo I wanted to put them on trial like gore said. Capture and bring them to trial. Killing afghan farmers like killing vietnam rice paddy farmers does nothing but cause misery. It was a money making scam for all the grifters in think tanks defense contractors and generals who will never step on a battlefield and fight to last poor kid is dead. 😭

    It’s been long overdue. I’m holding this man by his word with this one

    • @Sweet Willy Oh course! Why trust him, when we should place our blind faith in a ‘stable’ genius of an ex-president? Ummm, why did he have to clarify that he was stable again?

    • @AnimeFanNo3 when will people learn just because Trump is unstable doesn’t give Biden a pass on being senile, dude can barely stand and is constantly mumbling and tripping over his words. Horrible record on both voting for wars and for harsher penalties on black youths the dudes a grifter just as much as Trump, not to mention that son of his.

    • Seriously? Don’t be stupid. No one from VN attacked us on our soil. God the fools abound here in make believe land.

    • I wonder how corrupt politics such as Donald Trump have more than 2 million subscribers. While Joe Biden has less than 1 million subscribers. Can someone explain to me why that is possible even though Donald Trump is worse than Joe Biden

    • And we also broke the Soviets’ record on how long they were in Afghanistan. They were there for 10 years from 1979 to 1989. The US has been in Afghanistan for twice that long since 2001!

  8. As a veteran, I have to agree with old joe on this one. No matter what we do we can’t change that country.

    • @A W Are you 9?

  12. I just wonder why he’s sticking to the agreement. Probably because we’re about to become engaged in a war with a bigger country

    • Hidden Dragon | April 14, 2021 at 7:20 PM | Reply

      Biden has been saying for years we should pull out and yes there are bigger strategic threats.

    • You don’t get it, do you? He is breaking the agreement and waging war against the Taliban.
      The withdrawal deadline is May 1st according to the agreement. He doesn’t want to leave Afghanistan.

    • @One Plus Yet he’s pulling out… it’s a bit suspicious that your account was made two weeks ago and it’s copy and pasted comments

    • @Leon He’s not pulling out. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Taliban will start attacking the invading forces after May 1st deadline and then Biden will send more troops to “fight back”.
      When my account was made doesn’t have anything to do with Biden breaking the peace agreement signed last year on Feb 29.

  13. They probably didn’t say “we’ve been here too long” they probably said “this doesn’t make much financial sense anymore”

      Probably, but you know at the end of the war we have to clean up the country that we just destroyed, so there’s all kinds of money in it for Joe’s brother which is in construction supposedly, he’s these guys are crooks Of the top shelf kind

    • They don’t care about the finances as long as they can print money.
      Biden is breaking the agreement by not withdrawing by May 1st. He doesn’t want to leave.

      @One Plus The May 1st deadline is the deadline for talks not withdrawal

    • @blackmesa232323 What part of the agreement stipulates that? It has four parts.
      Part one says US with withdraw all forces by the end of April, 2021.

    I’ve served 16 yrs and had 3 deployments, including Afghanistan. The amount of coordination needed to make this kind of troop movement is overwhelming. He said no “hasty withdrawal”, but with only a 4 month timeline that’s best case scenario IMO.

      @Hidden Dragon scaling down media coverage

    • He doesn’t want to leave. If he wanted to leave, he would have withdrawn by May 1st. Staying one more day after May 1st breaks the agreement so the Taliban will start attacking the US troops and Biden will increase troop numbers.

      Really? Have you considered where their redeployment will be?

    • @Drew P. Balzak that’s what world powers have to do. Democracy and economic growth has to be defended militarily. It’s been always like this even in the Roman empire. If you start not fighting you will lose advantage. The European union can develop with no fight because the US is doing the fighting but if US stops then what is the answer to all the other systems that try to control the world?
