The withdrawal maybe should have happened, but the disgraceful way is entirely on Biden. What a senile doofus.

This was a colossal failure on foreign policy of the highest order.

The US flag has been lowered from the US embassy in Kabul, as staff are moved to city's airport.

One massive disgrace for our country. It started last year when we turned our back on the Afghan people and ends with us turning our back on the Afghan people. All those that want the pull out an end to the war, you got it.  NOW WHAT?

I have no answer. But what makes you say it started last year and not earlier? There have been many points that lead up to this. Starting from 1980 through 2002 and later. Policies that might have not been properly thought through, acting mostly in reaction to events and occurrences rather than a well thought through strategy (dealing with militant Islam, or more broadly - fighting ideologies with guns).
