Refuse To Open Another Decade Of Warfare In Afghanistan: US President Joe Biden

Washington: US President Joe Biden addressed the nation yet again on the Afghan crisis and justified his much-criticised decision for complete withdrawal from the embattled nation. Here are some pertinent points made by Biden as quoted by Agencies:

“We accomplished our mission in Afghanistan a decade ago & we stayed a decade more. It was time to end this war.”

“I refuse to open another decade of warfare in Afghanistan.”

“For those Americans who remain in Afghanistan, the U.S. will make arrangements to get them out if they so choose. He also says the U.S. will continue to work to get out Afghan allies. We are far from done.’

“We will maintain terrorism combat in Afghanistan and other countries without American boots on the ground, ‘a very few needed.'”

“Decision to end US military presence in Afghanistan was based on a unanimous recommendation by civilian, military advisors, service chiefs & commanders in field. Their recommendation for safe passage of remaining Americans was not to continue.”

“I believe this is the ‘right decision, wise decision and the best decision’. The war in Afghanistan is now over. I am the fourth president to have faced this issue on how to end this war… I made a commitment to Americans to end this war, I honoured it.”

“I take responsibility for the decision. Some say we should have started it sooner. I respectfully disagree… Had it been before, it would have led to rush, or a civil war… There is no evacuation from the end of a war without challenges, threats we face.”

“The success of this evacuation (from Afghanistan) was due to selfless courage of our military. They risked their lives to serve others… ‘not in a mission of war but in a mission of mercy’…No nation has ever done this in history, it’s only United States.”
