Hamdard Zaffari, a former journalist from Afghanistan who even worked for the United Nations, said there is plenty of blame to go around for the US’ 20-year debacle in Afghanistan.

“I have my extended family back home but I feel for the 35 million people who are in Afghanistan, it’s not just about us but it’s about peace because the Taliban will retaliate and destroy humanity,” Zaffari said.

Many across the world are questioning President Joe Biden’s decision meanwhile also there are several defending his decision.

On Saturday, President Biden released a statement outlining plans to protect American values and interests as it ends its war in Afghanistan.

“Over our country’s 20 years at war in Afghanistan, America has sent its finest young men and women, invested nearly $1 trillion dollars, trained over 300,000 Afghan soldiers and police, equipped them with state-of-the-art military equipment, and maintained their air force as part of the longest war in U.S. history,” the President’s statement reads. “One more year, or five more years, of U.S. military presence would not have made a difference if the Afghan military cannot or will not hold its own country. And an endless American presence in the middle of another country’s civil conflict was not acceptable to me,” the President said in a statement.
