But he didn’t. Trump is so 2020. This is on Biden and only Biden.
Keep drinking the kool-aid and maybe take reading comprehension while you are at it.

Using your logic the virus is on the last president and only the last president. How many did he kill?  :P

I give you credit for seeing both sides.
This decision is on Biden since he made it but it is funny how the kool-aid drinkers forget what the last president wanted to do.
What did he want to do that you are referring to?

In Biden's defense, if this result was inevitable (and I don't know that it was) then the case could be made that pulling off the band-aid and getting it over with quickly is the right move.

However, if that was the justification, they should have prepared better (by evacuating the embassy in advance for example).

Exact same thing would have happened with any president. You wanted out know you got it. The question now is not if but when will be the next 911 attack or worse?
Why exactly do terrorists need a country in order to carry out a 911 attack?

I love this @PlatinumGuy trump wanted, let me tell you what else he wanted, since when do you use wanted to credit someone
This is definitely not what trump wanted, and he wouldn't go on vacation when this plays out, you'd see him threaten with nukes

Was definitely inevitable, though perhaps there was value in leaving a small contingent behind and buying more time under the status quo. However both Trump and Biden were aligned in wanting a full pullout.

What is entirely Biden's fault is ignoring warnings that the collapse would happen so rapidly and failing to strategize for an orderly pullout.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Was definitely inevitable,

Then the ones we should be criticizing are Bush, Obama and Trump for not doing this sooner.

Right.
