"President Biden is ending the war in Afghanistan. For that, he deserves our respect."

Does he?
Opening paragraph:

Quote
the deal didn't mandate the Taliban stop attacks against Afghan security forces

Terms of Doha agreement https://www.state.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Agreement-For-Bringing-Peace-to-Afghanistan-02.29.20.pdf

Quote
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which is not recognized by the United States as a state and is known as the Taliban will not allow any of its members, other individuals or groups, including al-Qaida, to use the soil of Afghanistan to threaten the security of the United States and its allies.

C'mon man, it's a 3 part agreement and he acts as if the 2nd part doesn't even exist. Very good odds the author never read it...

Pence's WSJ article rips it all apart. Ridiculous.

Would be funny if a storekeeper asked Biden to watch the store while he goes out for a bit.

The owner would come back and all the shelves will be empty.

And I imagine the conversation would go something like this...

Biden: "Well, you are the one that made an agreement, that people get to take the goods from the store."

Store owner: "Joe, they had to first pay before taking them!"

Biden: "Well you created this mess!"

The end.

You asked the question based on an article, I can't get passed the first paragraph. Sorry. Or was the question separate from the article?

The article was a different perspective by someone who wanted troops out.

The question stands by itself.

Does he?

No. Ending the war in this way is something any idiot could have done, and is not worthy of respect.

If he would have ended the war without unconditionally surrendering to the Taliban, burning our allies (Afghan and others) and leaving the country worse than it was 20 years ago, that would be worthy of respect.

The SAS regularly go into hostile territory "hundreds of miles" from safety. That is their job and they do it very well. What does it have to do with Biden?
This twitter guy is simply trolling.
This morning I ran out of milk for my coffee. Very annoying situation. However, I don't blame it on Biden or Trump.

The premise of the question is that he is ending the war in Afghanistan. Can you back that up?

Of course they do with a strategy and plan of how to deal with it. Here they were not expecting to need an extraction.

The Afghans definitely didn't.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I don't know if they got "enough" of a heads up. There are definitely aspects that they seem to be up in arms about.

I assumed @avromie7 was compiling a list of people that didn't know. Figured I'd add some first hand knowledge to the list  ;) because it clearly had nothing to do with my question.
