Too bad the terrorists aren’t calling it quits. On July 2, 2021 CNN reported, All US forces have left Bagram Air Base, as US withdrawal from Afghanistan nears completion… But the withdrawal from Bagram, devoid of any pomp and ceremony, is a symbolic victory for the Taliban, who have waged a relentless cross-country battle against the Afghan military, pushing back government forces and overrunning a growing number of districts. Today the Taliban is waiting in the wings to take control of cities across Afghanistan to provide terrorists the opportunity to regroup in that beleaguered country to create training camps and pose a threat to countries around the world, including the United States. When President Bush sent troops to the Middle East, in the wake of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, he said that we would fight the terrorists “over there- so that we won’t have to fight them over here.” President Obama echoed that claim, that our military efforts “over there” were being carried out so that the United States would not have to fight the terrorists “over here.”
