Please don't CONFLATE the WITHDRAWAL with the EVACUATION.

They're two separate things.

Some of us have been pushing for withdrawal for more than 10 years... more like 19.5, lol...

Some have been blaming Biden for the "Withdrawal". There's absolutely nothing wrong with the withdrawal, the vast majority of Americans support a withdrawal from this endless war.

The evacuation is the final strategic and tactical move made in a withdrawal.

Bottom line, one of these things can be flawed and the other perfect.

I personally don't like Joe taking the blame and saying "the buck stops with..." I don't like it. Joe had NOTHING to do with the tactical movements on the ground. Like ALL POTUS's, he assembles a team of people to implement his own broad and sweeping policy demands.

If something doesn't go right... it means a ball was DROPPED. I really wish we'd see firings or people resign.

One more time, the withdrawal is NOT the evacuation. Separate things, don't get them mixed up.

RW'ers like Fox are using the "Evacuation debacle" to smear the "Withdrawal"... damn neocons are already beginning to miss their "precious" war...

2. I actually think things are going as good as can be expected.

We’re evacuating at a rapid clip with no deaths so far.

3. Just wanted to bump this because some people are still doing it

One more time.

The Withdrawal and the Evacuation are two DIFFERENT things.

The Withdrawal is wildly popular with the US public. I don't care if Trump, Biden, Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck ordered it... it's past time.

Good riddance to never ending wars.

Now I see some GOP'ers who are saying "Look at the evacuation chaos, see we shouldn't have withdrawn"

Bullshit.

It's time to go. Period.

Want to debate the strategy and tactics of the evacuation? Ok, we can listen and study it.

One final time.

Withdrawal.

Evacuation.

Different things.

One can be masterful and one can be flawed.
