We’re withdrawing from Afghanistan, and the Pentagon is worried about our people being attacked by the Taliban.  But that’s going on, anyway, from what I can gather.

From the article: WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is preparing for possible Taliban attacks on U.S. and coalition forces as they withdraw from Afghanistan, a prospect that complicates the outlook for winding down America’s longest war.

May 1 was the date all U.S. and other foreign forces were to have departed Afghanistan under a February 2020 deal between the Taliban and the Trump administration. As part of that agreement, the Taliban halted attacks on U.S. troops, and none has been killed since then. But the Taliban said it will consider the United States to be in violation of the agreement for missing the deadline for full withdrawal. Their representatives have been vague about whether they intend to attack starting May 1.

President Joe Biden’s decision to proceed with a final but delayed withdrawal adds a new element of security risk as the remaining 2,500 to 3,500 American troops, along with about 7,000 coalition troops and thousands of contractors, begin departing. Biden has said all will be gone by Sept. 11, the date of the 2001 terrorist attacks that prompted the U.S. to invade Afghanistan in the first place. – article

You’d think the Taliban would simply be glad to see us go, wouldn’t you? So what is their point to picking another fight? Is it that we didn’t all skedaddle outa there by XX date on the calendar?

Well, blame Biteme for that, because as the article indicates, it’s on his watch now.

It is not on the other guy. He’s been gone for a while.

    Any deaths between 1 May and 11 September are fully on Jomentia Xiden and his handlers.

  2. They will turn this around using the Goebbels effect and blame Pres Trump like they blame him for all their failures.

    “The U.S. intends to continue counterterrorism operations, as needed, against al-Qaida and potentially other extremist groups in Afghanistan, but it’s not yet clear where those forces will be positioned. Also unclear is the extent to which American and coalition forces will continue to provide air and other military support for Afghan security forces during and after the withdrawal.”
    So we’re going from mostly pulled out to mostly, mostly pulled out.
    Good to know.
    I’m mostly going to pay my taxes and mostly follow unconstitutional laws, mostly.

    Perfect excuse to get back in and continue the forever war.

    Can’t help but see a replay of Saigon on 30APR1975. The Taliban will be playing the role of PAVN.

    “America’s longest war”…..

    *Korean Conflict looks around shaking it’s head, resigned to the fact that it will always be the “middle child” of America’s wars*
