President Biden recently announced that U.S. troops will be fully removed from Afghanistan by September 11. While we believe a full withdrawal by the May 1 deadline in the Doha agreement would have best served America’s interests, President Biden’s decision comes as welcome news to the millions of Americans tired of endless war.
The president is doing the right thing by ordering a speedy and full military withdrawal from Afghanistan. This approach is consistent with our national interests and challenges a status quo of “endless wars.” While the delay is not ideal, there is a clear deadline, and our withdrawal will not be “conditions-based.”
Let’s bring all our troops home. Let’s end the missed birthdays, the grief of losing loved ones, and the empty holidays. America has more pressing priorities at home and elsewhere, and President Biden must keep his promise to end our endless war in Afghanistan. Tell Washington it’s time to end the endless war in Afghanistan.
