Joe Biden loves to take credit for things that Trump did. He did it with the COVID vaccine and he’s doing it, now, with the troops in Afghanistan.
President Biden recently spoke from the Treaty Room of the White House to talk about withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan. The process will begin in May with the hope that all troops are out by September 11.
Hmmm, why does this sound so familiar?
Oh, right. Trump had promised to get troops out, too – and that’s because he was dedicated to ending the forever wars. The only reason that the troops are still there is because Biden put a stop to the process when he got into office.
Biden makes the comment that “With the terror threat now in many places, keeping thousands of troops grounded and concentrated in just one country at a cost of billions each year makes no sense to me, and our leaders.”
He’s right. It was costing too much money, and the threat is greater in other parts of the world. However, he makes it sound as though this is an original thought of his. All he did was postpone Trump’s plan so that he could take credit for it.
What Biden isn’t doing is promising to end the forever wars like former President Trump.
Instead, it’s important to pay close attention to what he is saying – there’s a terror threat in “many places.”
While the liberal headlines may read that he’s bringing the troops home, it’s likely to be temporary. Biden is not capable of negotiating with foreign leaders like other presidents. He completely failed when it came to negotiating with Iran.
It’s only a matter of time before troops are going to get shipped off to Israel or Iran to deal with the nuclear threats. More will get shipped off to Taiwan to deal with the People’s Republic of China to deal with the forced reunification project.
The troops will still be at war because Biden doesn’t know how to conduct relations with the rest of the world.
Meanwhile, Biden is drawing words straight from Trump, talking about continuing the cycle of extending a military presence in Afghanistan. He comments that he’s the fourth president to preside over an American troop presence – and he doesn’t want to pass the responsibility to a fifth.
Again, this sounds a lot like ending forever wars. Yet, he’s not looking to end all of the wars like Trump. He just wants to end the one that’s going on in Afghanistan.
Biden already knows that he’s not going to end all of the wars. At the rate that he’s going, he may end up starting a few. After all, the issues between Israel and Iran are because of Biden’s inability to negotiate.
Meanwhile, the tensions are higher between China and Taiwan because of the U.S. establishing stronger support with Taiwan.
Biden simply does not know what he’s doing. And he might be the one who is finally responsible for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan. The problem is, if they’re deployed to somewhere else almost immediately, they aren’t really coming home.
Home means to stay on U.S. soil. It means being able to spend time with family and friends.
Joe Biden doesn’t have military experience. He can only take credit for sons being in the military – and that’s not the same thing. He doesn’t understand the sacrifices that the men and women of the military make every day.
If he doesn’t sacrifice the people to Afghanistan, he’ll sacrifice them somewhere else.
At least, for a short while, we’ll be able to say that the troops are coming home. They’ll be able to end a forever war. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens without the troops there and if the Afghan security forces can be self-sufficient once and for all.
