US President Joe Biden on Sunday paid a visit to the fallen US soldiers, Biden was seen bowing his head and hands over his heart as a mark of respect to the lost American souls in Afghanistan. Biden and his wife, Jill, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and senior military officials stood somberly as US troops carried the cases down the ramp of an Air Force C-17 aircraft at Dover Air Force Base.
Backlashes from THE REPUBLICANS
After President Biden was sene paying his homage to the soldiers wrapped in the flag, the Republicans came heavily on him, the backlashes over his action leading to the recent chaos jolted white house's table. The Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said people on the ground working with indigenous forces is the "best insurance policy against another 9/11".
Graham was speaking to a US television network asserted that "I wouldn’t have withdrawn" while adding, "I would have kept the counterterrorism forces on the ground."
Biden's idea of withdrawing his troops tends to show a sign of failure of the USA's fights against terrorism since last twenty years.
JOE BIDEN'S STAND
Biden faced criticism even before the unprecedented death of the US soldier pertaining to the US withdrawal of soldiers but he kept his stance. He defended his move to withdraw troops from the country, stating, "History will record this as Logical, Rational and Right decision"
INDIA's VIEW ON US WITHDRAWAL OF US TROOPS
1. India has strategic interests in Afghanistan’s future and as its ally, India can have an edge over Pakistan. Over the years India has tried to build its camaraderie with Afghanistan through investing in infrastructure, education sector, irrigation development and power generation projects. India’s strategic, economic and security-related interests depend on how the current Afghan government keeps the Taliban at bay after the Biden administration pulls its military presence from the region.
2. The idea of Trump’s troop withdrawal from Afghanistan was conditional on Taliban taking measures to avert and prevent al-Qaeda or any other militant group from harbouring in Afghanistan, and assurance for agreeing to dialogue on power sharing with the Afghan government, but the Biden administration has no such provisos.
3. The withdrawal from Afghanistan will only bring challenges for the Indian Subcontinent as the US military presence kept a check on the radically extremist forces and created the possibility of a conducive environment for India to work with Afghanistan. The withdrawal can lead to a surge in international and regional terrorism, re-emergence of Taliban’s influence on Pakistan and the political instability it will create in the region.
