Western media: Biden decided on the final date for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan

23

The current US president, like his predecessor, intends to return home his military personnel who are stationed abroad. In this regard, Joe Biden will name the final date for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.


This is reported by Western media, citing senior US officials.

They argue that the US military must leave Afghanistan by September 11 this year. For the United States, the date is of great importance, since on that day exactly two decades ago there was an al-Qaeda terrorist attack on America, which subsequently led to the introduction of the American army into Afghan territory.

It is expected that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Pentagon Chief Lloyd Austin will inform their NATO allies about the end date of the United States Army's stay in Afghanistan. It is also possible that an official statement about this will follow personally from the American President Joe Biden.

If officials announce the withdrawal of the contingent from Afghanistan by September 11, this means that Washington has decided to postpone the date previously announced by Donald Trump on May 1, after which the US military will not be in this country.

And if the withdrawal of troops is decided to be postponed for another six months, then there is no guarantee that later it will not be postponed even further, or even canceled altogether.

      On the path of the late USSR. Comrades are on the right path. And Biden is quite like the late Brezhnev.

        Brezhnev was more cheerful, and Brezhnev's speech was more fun.

          As on September 11, 20 years ago in the United States there was a CIA provocation of the US State Department, so the current statements by Washington about the withdrawal of the US Armed Forces from Afghanistan are exactly the same "noodle".
          Who in the Pentagon would leave such 1000-fold profits from drugs for the United States in Afghanistan ?! Yes, this will never happen!

            However, the mattresses will have to stand on the skis. If their affairs were going relatively well, then they would not initiate negotiations with the Taliban, which according to the international classification is a terrorist organization, and since they did not disdain to sit down at the negotiating table with terrorists, then they are completely “sad there. that they could not agree with the Taliban that, after the US left, they would not reset official Kabulistan, because with its elimination the mattresses will have no legal basis for maintaining at least some of their influence in Afghanistan, for the remaining period of time mattresses and will try to stifle some kind of security guarantees for the Kabulis.Judging by the statement of the Taliban that if the date of the withdrawal of US troops is postponed, they will curtail all negotiations, it can be assumed that they will begin to accelerate the withdrawal, by military methods, which is currently are not used by the US and NATO forces. ”Looking at the map of the 20-year“ success ”of the US stay in Afghanistan, it becomes clear that o the mattresses are no longer faced with the task of extending their presence indefinitely, since it is absolutely unpromising, but they want to come to an agreement in the remaining time.

              As far as I heard, the US plans to transfer its American drug control with the purchase of drugs from the Afghan population to the Taliban through Pakistan in case of an extreme aggravation with the Taliban. Under what conditions such a transfer will not be reported. And moreover, the conversation about this has been going on for a long time. And even the USA and Pakistan have already made some progress in this regard. But apparently, it was the Americans and the Pakistanis who did not grow well together, that the US Armed Forces are still in Afghanistan.
              And in general, the American military themselves, represented by the Pentagon, cannot get away from such a kusman for the sake of profits!

                Well Tatiana is smart love , but I think why the United States is suddenly going to leave Afghanistan, there is, after all, "the mines of King Solomon" .. A bunch of terrorists can be quietly armed .. Seeing began to be indignant in the world, so they came up with a new scheme, Pakistan is "their old friend" in such transactions .. good Thank you Tatyana for the tattoo, there is something to think about hi

      Well, thank you, Lord! And then I really began to worry remembering about his dementia and "I'm Biden, Joe Biden's husband"! But the smoking-room is still alive! lol

      Personally, I have great doubts about the possible withdrawal by the Americans of their armed forces from Afghanistan. They themselves never voluntarily leave anywhere. If they withdraw their troops, the pro-American regime in the country will not last long. The Taliban will once again rule the country. And this will already be tantamount to admitting defeat for the states.

    The main thing is to declare. What will actually happen is not important for propaganda. Everything is absolutely logical and fits into the strategy of information wars. The can is a peace-lover - a candidate for the Nobel Prize.

    Very doubtful.
    Will they leave such a strategically important foothold ..?

      In fact, the US broke the deal with the Taliban. Logically, we are waiting for a military response from the Mujahideen. If there are losses of l / s striped, then they are unlikely to go away in the near future - nekomilfo.

    In theory, they have a dofiga people feeding from Afgan. It turns out that either Biden was again exposed to ridicule, or they are now at the top of a steep showdown and some are chopped off financial channels.

    I am afraid that later the igils, the Taliban and other evil spirits will trample from Afghanistan to Tajikistan. And there the border of Russia is not far away. They are stirring up something again

    If the officials announce the withdrawal of the contingent from Afghanistan by 11/XNUMX, this means
    What are they crazy! After all, mattresses never give back what they took away, unless it is profitable for them! Who can refuse gratuitous poppy fields ?!
