Romney commits to pull troops out of #Afghanistan 2014. Ryan didn't.— Steven Dennis (@StevenTDennis) October 23, 2012
It takes “two sides to end a war,” Jake.
As we approach the 2022 midterms, the GOP is making it clear that their side wants to resume the war with the Taliban, reinvade Afghanistan, retake Bagram Air Force Base and resettle hundreds of thousands of Afghan refugees in the United States. Presumably, the GOP wants to create a new puppet government and a new fake Afghan army and repeat the experiment of the last 20 years all over again. Joe Biden and the Democrats support ending the war in Afghanistan.
Note: Isn’t this a beautiful illustration of the disconnect between Republican politicians and Republican voters and the tendency of the former to embrace and cling to wildly unpopular establishment policy positions? There are plenty of Republican voters who are thrilled that we are out of Afghanistan.
