Little do we know that things could have been handled differently and peacefully without casualty.
Sad to witness the tragic happenings in Afghanistan, especially in Kabul.
After the President fled, the nation fell down to America and the Taliban’s policing which ended up badly.
For Afghans, this is a huge victory after 20 years of war against America.
It was reported by The Washington Post that the Taliban offered to let the United States take over control of Kabul while the terror group would remain outside waiting on President Jo Biden’s self-imposed withdrawal by August 31, but the United States turned down the offer and gave Kabul over to the Taliban militants while retaining control of Hamid Karzai International Airport for evacuation proceedings.
This is insane! Things could have ended differently, The 20-year-old war could have ended differently.
There would be no 13 dead American soldiers, no Afghan casualties too.
Recently, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff released a statement, “All of us are conflicted with feelings of pain and anger, sorrow and sadness, combined with pride and resilience, But one thing I am certain of, for any soldier, sailor, airman or Marine and their families, your service mattered. It was not in vain.”
Southern border crisis, a huge number of Arabs going into our country indicates that we should be a lot more vigilant.
For many U.S. commanders and troops who served in Afghanistan, it was a day of mixed emotions.
