Not unexpected. The Biden administration advertised the withdrawal date. The Taliban could plan accordingly.

Trump also gave a withdrawal date.

Trump also gave a withdrawal date.

Really? And how would that be relevant to this article, which mentions increasing violence since May.

Was Trump the president in this May?

On Sunday, fighting continued on the outskirts of Kandahar city.

Who was the president in the US this past Sunday?

Non-US citizens need accurate information to make relevant comments.

Sure. And what exactly would have gone differently if they hadn't "advertised the withdrawal date"? Afghanistan would be a peaceful paradise filled with ice cream and bunnies?

Two ways: (1) It displays your utter hypocrisy in bitching about Biden; and, (2):

*WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden is under mounting pressure as he weighs whether to fully withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan by *May 1, a deadline negotiated by the Trump administration.

So do the Fox “News” binge watching segment of US citizens. Too bad they aren’t intelligent enough to find the accurate information.

Had Trump had won his election instead of the historical defeat, the same situation would be now happening during his second term. Which according to him, starts again, next month.

The answer is in my post--which you quoted, so you already know the answer.

Or should know it.

Gotta take turn off CNN for awhile!

US citizens should stop believing big lies, before they criticize others.

Hmmm - Trump negotiated the remain in Mexico deal in order to stop the rush on the border he inherited from the previous administration. Yet somehow that policy is no longer in place. Are you gaslighting us and saying that the immigration policy negotiated by Trump is still in place because nothing changes when a new president takes office? Well no. Like the Afghan retreat policy the President makes the decisions- not the ex-president.

 Well no. Like the Afghan retreat policy the President makes the decisions- not the ex-president.

Yet, you refused to criticize Trump for announcing the withdrawal date and pillory Biden for having brought our troops home.
