    Nope, he just agreed with the decision. And now he made the invasion last longer than Donald Trump would have.

    Trump's Deal To End War In Afghanistan Leaves Biden With 'A Terrible Situation'
    One of Donald Trump's campaign promises was to end the war in Afghanistan. Last year, he negotiated an agreement with the Taliban to withdraw all U.S. forces by May 1 of 2021. That's less than two months away. Not represented in that agreement were members of the Afghan government. They're now negotiating with the Taliban. Meanwhile, President Biden, having inherited the Trump deal, faces some tough choices, as my guest, Dexter Filkins, explains in his new piece in The New Yorker. If Biden succeeds in pulling out troops, he will end a forever war. But with U.S. troops gone, civil war could flare up, the Taliban could take over and the war Americans fought could be deemed a failure.

    clad in a loose headscarf, Gailani faced the men, who banished women like herself from public life, over dinner at a luxury Qatari hotel. She had almost lost her voice to cancer but she was determined to make herself heard.

    Gailani is the most senior of four women in a team of 21 delegates (one for each year of war) representing the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan at peace talks with the leaders of the Taliban.

    The negotiations in Doha — and possibly in Istanbul — were a key condition of the US-Taliban agreement in February 2020, which also required assurances from the group that Afghanistan would not be used as a base by terrorist organisations.

    Taliban launches Afhgan offensive as U.S. troops withdraw
    https://www.cbsnews.com/video/taliba...D9nZ0a1J2fJA4#
    U.S. withdraws from its 20-year-long war in Afghanistan, a new large-scale military offensive is under way there.
    Taliban forces are wasting no time in trying to seize as much of the country as they can.

    To the Taliban that was an irrelevance. Your word is your bond- or it ain't.
    They, along with many others, frown upon a society that reneges on its oaths every four years. Look at the Iranian example, for instance.

    I wonder if there is one person in Afghanistan that thanks the US for destroying its country.
