U.S senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, the , has called the Biden administration’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan one of the country’s worst foreign policy mistakes.
“We’re looking for a way out, and our brave military is doing the best they can with a terrible policy decision over the next two days.
On Sunday, McConnell told newsmen that, “This is one of the worst foreign policy decisions in American history.”
He argued that the withdrawal from the Central Asian country was worse than the evacuation of American soldiers from South Vietnam in 1973 since there was no terrorist threat there, unlike the current scenario in Afghanistan.
He expressed anxiety for America’s future because terrorist leaders are “happy about the success they see in bringing America to its knees in Afghanistan,” he said.
In mid-August, the Taliban (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) took control of Kabul, finishing a large-scale attack across the country and prohibiting foreign troops from staying past August 31.
