TEHRAN (Iran News) –Can You Believe the U.S. Really Leaving Afghanistan? In the news and among the reports, every day we hear that the U.S. is determined to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan and at the same time the U.S. statesmen warn against the violence and insecurity in this Asian country but can anyone believe the U.S. troops’ withdrawal from Afghanistan?
If we turn the pages of the history book and have a look at the history of the U.S. performance in other countries, we notice this point that Americans will not leave any country unless they strengthen their position there either by bringing a pro-West government into power or Americanizing the people in that country. So political analysts are skeptical on the U.S. decision on leaving Afghanistan.
The U.S. statesmen claim that the U.S. and Western troops withdrawal from Afghanistan will lead to violence and clashes in the country and to prove their claim, they point to the recent blasts in the country.
The United States has vowed several times, under various different presidents, that it would soon end the war on Afghanistan. However, a full withdrawal of American troops has never materialized. Do you think this time it will happen? Political analysts cast their doubts and believe this time it will not also happen.
Now this time President Joe Biden is pledging again that the country is set to end its longest war in history by September the 11th. He has claimed, “I’m now the fourth, United States president to preside over American troop presence in Afghanistan, two Republicans, two Democrats. I will not pass this responsibility onto a fifth. The Afghans have the right and responsibility to lead their country. And that more and endless American military force could not create or sustain a durable Afghan government.”
Butthis is not the first time that Biden is making such a promise. And since former President George W. Bush launched the war, back in 2001, all American leaders have announced a soon-to-happen full withdrawal.
The Afghans, like other nations in the region, have been suffering the consequences and impact of the brutal U.S. presence for almost two decades now. Despite the Americans’ claim of bringing security and peace, the Americans have not fulfilled their responsibility to Afghanistan, their responsibilities to ensure a strong government, the rule of law and democracy in Afghanistan, and ensure that people’s concerns relayed from terrorism, drugs, intervention by other countries.
They failed to fulfill the promises they have made to the Afghan people, these forces are not useful to Afghanistan, because their presence has not changed the country’s security situation.
The withdrawal comes at a time when the Afghan government is vulnerable and a surge in terrorism could be just around the corner. Many are already living in fear amid terrorist attacks in Afghanistan.
Bombings, explosions and families, searching for missing relatives in the ensuing chaos, are parts of the reality that could strike an Afghan on any given day.
So the question is raised why the number of blasts and violence is on the rise in Afghanistan while the U.S. troops are on the verge of the country.
The answer is quite clear. The U.S. is not willing to leave Afghanistan until it has a full control on the ruling government and even the nation and currently the condition is not in its favor and for this reason we see more violence and blasts in this country to justify the U.S. troops’ deployment in this country whose people are suffering from years of war and violence that the foreign forces’ presence and their interference should be blamed for it.
The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in October 2001, as part of the so called War on Terror. While the invasion ended the Taliban’s rule in the country back then, it is ending with a deal with the Taliban.
But since then and under the different pretexts, they have continued their presence in this country because they need bases in the region for showing their power, influence and its so-called peace and security-seeking intention.
Now the U.S. troops seem to leave this country but as a proverb says “seeing is believing” and one cannot believe it because the Americans have to be present in this country in different guises either civilian or military, and this is Afghan people who should decide their own fate by not letting foreigners decide their fate.
The West is not trustable and any country should rely on itself than seeking foreign supports.
