After installing and supporting a new government, supplying and training a government army at a cost of 300 million dollars a day for an entire generation (20 years), we finally have a president willing to do what he had to do which is “the right thing”. For those here that are arguing that we shouldn’t be ending this debacle 'now', how many more generations would it take to make this war a benefit to us and what exactly should be our final goal?
“August 24, 2021 (Tuesday)
Since August 14, just ten days ago, the U.S. has facilitated the evacuation of 70,700 people from Afghanistan; more than 21,000 flew out in the last day alone. President Biden maintains that the U.S. will be out of Afghanistan by the August 31 deadline.
The evacuation, which began chaotically as the Afghan army and government crumbled and the Taliban took over the country in less than two weeks, has become far more orderly and efficient. (If there’s one thing the military does exceedingly well, it’s move large numbers of people!)” *
