Biden: There was no easy way to get out of Afghanistan




The United States finally decided to leave Afghanistan five months ago after spending billions of dollars; But before completing the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, the former president surprised the Americans and withdrew from Afghanistan in an unprecedented move. The American soldier will be in chaos after 20 years in Afghanistan. Fugitive Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has said he was forced to leave Afghanistan and that if he did not leave Afghanistan, he would be assassinated by the Taliban.


But after several rounds of talks, Zalmai Khalilzad, the US special envoy for the Afghan peace process, dismissed Ashraf Ghani’s claim as unfounded and stressed that if Ashraf Ghani had been in such a situation, he could have asked the United States, a key ally in Afghanistan, for help. . The unconditional withdrawal of the United States from Afghanistan after 20 years of heavy-handed presence has drawn much criticism of Biden’s administration. To the extent that, according to numerous polls in the United States, Biden and his government lost their popularity among American citizens in an unprecedented way, and the Americans were deeply disappointed by the abnormal withdrawal of the United States from Afghanistan.


At the time, Joe Biden told several news conferences that the US withdrawal from Afghanistan was the only way for Washington to return its troops home. Biden had said that US forces might be fighting in Afghanistan indefinitely if he did not do so. In the latest case, Joe again has to defend his decision to leave Afghanistan in a hurry, emphasizing that there was no easy way to get US and allied troops out of Afghanistan, so he had to make a difficult decision. To take. “I am not upset about the decision to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan, but I do have a bad feeling about what will happen after the Taliban take control. If we stayed, we would have to send between 20,000 and 50,000 troops there,” he said. “There were former American leaders, and I did not want to do that.”


After the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, the Taliban entered Kabul without any clashes and tried to further their group interests by establishing an interim government in the country. Now, five months after the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and the establishment of the provisional government of the Taliban Islamic Emirate, Afghanistan’s economic and political situation is more fragile than ever, and Islamic Emirate fighters continue to seek revenge on the military and civilians.
