For weeks now you have been beating this drum. You don't care what military people say, what experts say, what anyone says.... you just keep beating it. You keep yelling about how "people wanted to stay in Afghanistan" which virtually no one has said. Finally, you keep yelling about how no one tells you what we should have done differently.What is confusing about the fact that we pulled our advisors out of the Afgan Army and withdrew most of our troops 2-3 years ago?
Is that not clear?
Explain how Trump had set up an effective withdrawal trajectory.
Biden was basically boxed in by Trumps doings unless Biden wanted to surge troops and resume fighting the Taliban. Glad he didn't.
In response I lead you to a podcast where a 17-year CIA operative outlines what role Trump played, what role Biden played, how everyone wanted out, and your coveted "what we could have done different" points. Your response is to internalize that first part and ignore everything else. Like it or not, @FormerFatOL summed up your effort perfectly.
I watched the same episode. I think you heard what you want to hear not necessarily what was conveyed.
