’70s Redux: Biden Takes US Back to Runaway Inflation, Embarrassing Embassy Troop Withdrawal

By

On Thursday, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby announced the United States will deploy 3,000 troops to evacuate our embassy personnel from Kabul, the nation’s capital.

Kirby said an additional 1,000 troops will be sent to Qatar to help process Afghans fleeing the country with special immigrant visas.

Further, an infantry brigade combat team from the 82nd Airborne Division out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, will also deploy to Kuwait as a standby reserve force.

“We’ll see what the need is after that,” Kirby added, according to USA Today.

Biden announced in April that the U.S. military would be withdrawing from Afghanistan by the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks next month.

“[I]f I were now President, the world would find that our withdrawal from Afghanistan would be a conditions-based withdrawal,” he said in a statement.

“I personally had discussions with top Taliban leaders whereby they understood what they are doing now would not have been acceptable. It would have been a much different and much more successful withdrawal, and the Taliban understood that better than anyone. What is going on now is not acceptable. It should have been done much better,” Trump added.
