Does the Taliban have the upper hand on this deadline?
They want the US out ASAP. Would they risk attacking the US after the 8/31 deadline which would drag this out even longer?

The military needed a decision by today.
Taliban says a lot of things.

Does Russia have an upper hand? With President yes

USA Today/Suffolk poll:
Approve - 41% (32% among independents)
Disapprove - 55%

39% approval on the economy, 50% on COVID. 62% disapproval of how withdrawal has gone. 71% oppose recognizing Taliban. 84-10% support for translators.

Just… brutal.

Try telling it to this guy.
I can see why this admin would not want to say. The last admin should be all over this saying xx Americans are stuck there and can't get out.
Unconditional surrender was the agreement the last admin made. He did what others could not. Not even your hero.
Your opinion is duly noted.  :)
OK just found this, a direct quote from last admins senior advisor for policy and White House director of speechwriting to President Donald Trump.

which would drag this out even longer?

Would it? Biden has shown that the only thing he cares about is getting out. Why do you think that he would stay in longer if the Taliban attacked?

If Americans are killed I don't think he would have any choice.

How do you think Biden would respond if Americans were killed? My guess is that he would just drop a couple of bombs from the air. Maybe drone some Taliban leaders.

That would be my guess if it happens after we pull out. If it happens before I am not sure.
