America Completes Military Pull-out In Afghanistan

Published

After two decades of armed conflict in Afghanistan, the United States has finally completed the withdrawal of its troops from the terrorist-infested region. The weeks that preceded the military pull-out’s conclusion were plagued with chaos and carnage that saw Afghans and Americans die from bomb blasts and shootings carried out by the barbaric terror group known as ISIS-K.

While the future that Biden is trying to shape today isn’t bright for the U.S. and its allies, the American public is relieved to know that our brave troops are finally home. Our courageous soldiers are now ready to join their families and friends after a gruelling deployment in Afghanistan.

After the completion of the withdrawal, General Kenneth McKenzie, the commander of US Central Command, gave his official statement on the Kabul exit.

“It’s a mission that brought Osama bin Laden to a just end along with many of his Al Qaeda co-conspirators, and it was not a cheap mission. The cost was 2,461 U.S. service members and civilians killed, and more than 20,000 who were injured,” McKenzie recounted.

“Sadly, that includes 13 U.S. service members who were killed last week by an ISIS-K suicide bomber. We honor their sacrifice today as we remember their heroic accomplishments. No words from me could possibly capture the full measure of sacrifices and accomplishments of those who served nor the emotions they’re feeling at this moment,” McKenzie continued.

The Biden administration claims that the procedure was a success, but in reality, we still have a lot of work to do as we commence with the diplomatic phase of the withdrawal. Some of our fellow Americans and Afghan allies are still trapped in Afghanistan and until we get them out, our government and the military must not tread the path of complacency. The lives of the people who risked their personal security in exchange for our liberty shouldn’t be neglected.

“So, the military phase of this operation is ended. The diplomatic sequel to that we’ll now begin. And I believe our Department of State is going to work very hard to allow any American citizens that were left, and we think the citizens that were not brought out, number in the low, very low hundreds, I believe that we’re going to be able to get those people out, I think we’re also going to negotiate very hard and very aggressively to get our other Afghan partners out,” McKenzie added.
