There should have been no complete military withdrawal from Afghanistan, and Al Qaeda would have gained strength; Army Chief Mark Milley
Mark Millie, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, has said he did not advise US President Joe Biden on a complete military withdrawal from Afghanistan.
WASHINGTON, D.C .: Mark Millie, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, has made it clear that US President Joe Biden has not been advised of a complete military withdrawal from Afghanistan. Two top U.S. generals said they had recommended maintaining 2,500 troops in Afghanistan by the time the U.S. decides to withdraw its troops completely in August.
The U.S. military says in a statement that al-Qa’eda’s threats to assassinate al-Qa’eda in the coming years have grown exponentially. He further added that the rise of Taliban-backed Al Qaeda would pose a threat to the United States. Mark Millie, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, made the announcement in the U.S. Senate. He made the warning while answering questions from the Senate Armed Forces Committee.
“There should not have been a complete military withdrawal from Afghanistan. He called on President Joe Biden to keep at least a quarter of a million troops in Afghanistan. The Taliban is still a terrorist organization. They have close ties to Al Qaeda, “said Mark Millie, a senior defense adviser to US President Joe Biden. The Taliban, the fastest-growing group in Afghanistan, seized power in August. Millie said the United States was “surprised” by the speed of the Afghan government’s collapse. US President Joe Baida has called for a complete withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, ending a 20 – year military operation. Joe Biden had in April ordered the complete withdrawal of US troops by August 31.
What happened in the country after the withdrawal of the US military shocked the world. In a national poll conducted after the Taliban’s occupation of Afghanistan, Biden’s popularity fell to 43%. The majority of Americans did not approve of Biden’s foreign policy, while a large section of the population described the US role in Afghanistan as a “failure.”
