White House: If US had kept 2,500 troops in Afghanistan, war would result

Wed, 29 Sep 2021   |  Reading Time: < 1 minute

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Tuesday that the United States would be at war with the Taliban if Washington had maintained 2,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Psaki made the comment in seeking to clarify an apparent difference between President Joe Biden’s insistence that there was no split among his military advisers about the withdrawal and a top general’s statement that the U.S. military wanted to leave a contingent of troops in that country.

Psaki said if the United States had left U.S. troops in Afghanistan after Biden’s Aug. 31 pullout deadline, “We would be at war with the Taliban.”

What the hell... Their whole reason to enter Afghanistan was to fight Taliban. Are they suffering from gajhni effect or what? Look closer through Joe Biden's scalp, see if there are any marks as amir khan in that movie
