I have heard countless times about stories of war and hate and terror; coming from my country even allows you hear some of such bandit/terrorist attack-stories from within proximity.  The first time I had the interest to actually read about 9/11 was after I read a meme I didn’t quite understand because 9/11 sounded a little abstract in that context although I had heard of it a few times before.

Once again, the fall of Afghanistan and the take-over by the Taliban has reinforced worry in the hearts of many, especially those who are mostly affected by it. 20 years ago, U.S troops ousted the Taliban and regained some level of peace for the people of Afghanistan. Like every war situation many lives were lost; over 2,000 soldiers fell leaving behind parents, wives, children and friends, the American economy still feels the aftermath of the resources lost during that time of war, wounded soldiers are still being catered for, nothing can fill the vacuum the lost souls have left behind.

Following the recent chaotic development, the U.S has withdrawn their armed forces out of Afghanistan, after 2 decades of rendering protection, loosing over 6,000 soldiers, over 100,000 Afghans killed and over $2 trillion dollars spent by the U.S; the American government in the tenure of Biden has decided to bring their troops back home.

Yes, being in the position of ‘ The World’s Most Powerful Country’ comes with a trailer load of responsibilities but offering my own opinion through this medium, having considered the number of Afghans, especially women and children who would suffer tremendously with no help coming from the U.S; I still support the return of the troops to base!

Many theories and speculations have risen concerning the rapid victory of the Taliban over Kabul and other areas of Afghanistan; however, we cannot tell exactly what brought the present situation to actualization, it was shocking indeed. If America is still ready to support and assist in this fight, then it is necessary to go back to base and re-strategize in other to prevent impulsive or unnecessary war.

My heart goes to every fretting Afghan who worries for their family, watching the clip at the airport with several Afghans trying to grasps a part of the outer body of the airplane just to flee showed how desperate they are, not thinking of the impossibility of their actions.

With the sustenance from the U.S troops, America has been able to prevent another attack from Afghanistan (recall Bin Laden’s tenure) and many Afghans have been able to gain literacy, children have grown in a less violent environment, more technology and awareness has slipped into their space; we hope that this take-over would not bring a total end to the pace that has been set.
