The Generals & Secretary Of Defense - Rats Off A Sinking Ship

In testimony before Congress, the Generals and the Secretary of Defense all testified that they recommended that the United States keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan to support the existing government.  Just a few weeks ago, Biden either lied or was delusional when he said he got no such recommendations. Since the Generals and Secretary of Defense are worried about losing their jobs and big pensions, they spoke the truth before Congress because the information had been leaked anyway. No it was about saving their skins since they must believe that Biden will not be there for long.  

The fact is that Joe Biden ignored the advice he was given when he ordered that all troops leave Afghanistan and we saw the chaos that ensued.  We invested $2 Trillion in Afghanistan to ensure that Al Qaeda and other Terrorists could never again be able use it as a base of operations.  2,500 Americans died and 20,000 were wounded in the last 20 years.  President Trump had set several provisions that had to be met in order for the United States to leave Afghanistan.  The Taliban ignored all but one; that they would not attack our soldiers during the draw down.  We had grounds to stay in Afghanistan to protect our investment.  The same way we stayed in Germany, Japan and South Korea to ensure that the peace prevailed, we should have maintained a small presence in Afghanistan.  

We should have retained the Bagram Airforce base from which to operate.  We spent billions building it.  It is just a few miles from the border with China and Pakistan.  Now China is in discussions to lease it from the Taliban.  Imagine, China will now have a base of operations in Afghanistan paid for by American taxpayer.  Joe Biden should resign or be impeached.  Biden is clearly incompetent.  Biden has to go.
