When the Twin Towers in New York were attacked by instructions set forth by the Taliban American hater terrorist Osama Bin Laden the whole world was on our side to take action with the ruthless attack that killed just about 3000 of our citizens. President George W. Bush formed a coalition and the air raids followed in Afghanistan because thats where Bin Laden was held up organizing terror around the world. This was a President who never wanted nation building and this attack changed the attitude of his administration. America attacked Afghanistan and everything was going to plan, in other words America was on the verge of hurting Afghanistan and then the mistake was made, Bush took his eye off Afghanistan and decided to invade Iraq and that’s when America started losing justification for an invasion that did not need to happen. In the meantime Afghanistan was allowed to never bring them to their knees where we could have gotten out of there with honor while serving our purpose that no nation should ever attack America’s homeland again.
The following was posted by Nicholas Wu and Deirdre Shesgreen, published by USA Today: “An agreement between the United States and the Taliban could come as soon as February 29 in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement released Friday.”
“According to Pompeo, the U.S. “reached an understanding with the Taliban” on a reduction of violence that could lead to the signing of a U.S.-Taliban agreement next week. The signing is dependent upon the “successful implementation” of the agreement, Pompeo said.”
“Last week, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the deal includes a seven-day “reduction in violence.” A senior State Department official confirmed the reduction in violence period will start tonight Afghanistan time, and the signing will take place on the 29th in Doha between a Taliban representative and U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan Zalmay Khlalilzad.”
“Intra-Afghan” negotiations would start “soon thereafter” to eventually lead to a ceasefire in Afghanistan, Pompeo said.”
“The only way to achieve a sustainable peace in Afghanistan is for Afghans to come together and agree on the way forward,” he said.”
This would have been taken care way early on if Bush had just stayed on course and finish up with Afghanistan. Most importantly America never had the support of the world to attack Iraq. In the meantime I always supported our country and military and prayed for them to have a successful invasion but what always worried me is that Bush had a plan to attack Iraq but he never had an end game and that created a mess over there until Bush started listening to the right people to get out of Iraq respectfully and we did. In the meantime Afghanistan just lingered on like a bad rash and its about time for wise people to put their heads together and get out of there respectfully. We cant be there forever that is for sure and this is the policy that President Trump has and I feel he has the right people in place to do just that. We have exceeded our usefulness over there and its time to wrap it up. all I can say is Godspeed!
