Hopefully we can put our troops to better use. Thanks for their service there, though.

The war is not over. It is just we no longer have our men involved in it.

Maybe. For the average person (and for the environment) wars so expensive... Peace is what benefits the average person and the planet.

Just my 2 cents but yes... maybe its beauty pageant whimsy to think there are other ways to solve problems.

Seems we have surrendered without conditions. God help all the poor Afgans who supported us just to see us turn our backs on them.

In the big picture it may be the right move but in the short term everything about it looks wrong. I'm gonna stand with Biden on this and hope for the best. Some people would say I was crazy to support Trump and now some people would say I've really fallen off my rocker to support Biden.

But yeah I hear the concerns.

It's not the withdrawal that's the issue with most Americans, it's the incompetent idiots in charge of orchestrating it. We're only months into an administration which is hell-bent on destruction whether it's intentional or not.

Jimmy Carter has lost his position.

Well I thought Trump was the better choice. That's why voted for him. Even if mistakes are being made I feel like we cant cry and throw a tantrum over every mistake. Dont u get the feeling the media is attacking Biden the same way they attacked Trump? These attacks are two faced and dishonorable. The media has zero moral backbone with which to be critical of ANYONE.

The list of equipment and the arsenal of weaponry that we are leaving behind for the Taliban is staggering. I don't understand the philosophy.

They left lot to rust in Iraq too. The difference here being the stuff left behind hasnt been rendered inoperable? Its sounds like our policy is to be friends with them. We are friends with the Saudis and give tons of weapons to the Saudis. I agree it doesnt make sense our relationship with the Saudis doesnt make sense and the fact that both liberal and conservative American values are sold or given away for a certain price is an ugly blot on our national face.
