President Joseph Biden says that the Taliban may take over Kabul within 90 days. My personal take is that the general staff who advise President Biden may have their heads on the chopping block. Our military Generals is the last defense against terrorists like the Taliban, Isis, Al Quaida. Remember, if Afghanistan falls to terrorists, I hope President Biden doesn’t take the fall. We have over approximately 80 billion dollars invested over 20 years.
Afghanistan is important because it’s the hub where Iran and Pakistan border Afghanistan. We were maintaining security with a small force of approximately 2500 to 3500 troops for the last year. Remember we also have had a force in Germany since World War 2, which ended in 1945, so approximately 75 years we have maintained troops in Europe and Asia.
In my opinion, all the Generals will run scared to their reporters and say President Biden overruled their decision, which was to stay in Afghanistan. President Biden stated a few months back that the Kabul embassy wouldn’t fall, but now the embassy is being vacated by the US envoy. We all know the buck stops at the White House, and if President Biden lets Kabul fall then the United States will be facing China taking over Taiwan. Now if our Generals from our armed forces start pinning this on President Biden, we will be in over our heads. The ship could sink and our President will be a single term president, or even be persuaded to resign before the term is up.
