Greg Stube, a veteran of the US Army’s Green Berets, said that US President Joe Biden, through his actions in Kabul, gave a strategic victory to anti-Western radicals. It is reported by RIA News with reference to FoxNews.
According to the military, the Biden administration violated the most basic elements when planning military operations. “The timing of the withdrawal should never be set solely for the sake of political statements and popularity,” Stube said.
According to the veteran, the operations in Afghanistan were hampered by election promises and anger at former colleagues. He also called the result of Biden’s miss the fact that in the hands of the Afghans were American weapons, helicopters and even US citizens. “And now this is a terrifying national shame, which we will forever remember as Biden’s stupidity,” he concluded.
Earlier, Biden said that he refused to guarantee the final success of the evacuation of people from Afghan Kabul, but would do everything possible. According to him, this evacuation mission is dangerous and carries risks for our armed forces.
In May, Biden announced that US troops, along with NATO forces, would begin the final evacuation from Afghanistan. On July 8, he said that the American army would withdraw from Afghan territory by August 31. On August 15, the Taliban took Kabul and declared their victory over the Afghan government in the struggle for power in the country.
