(ConservativeInsider.org) – Previous US presidents said they wanted to get our troops out of Afghanistan, but none made it happen. Now, President Trump is poised to succeed where others have failed.
New intel from the Department of Defense (DOD) reveals a plan for the complete withdrawal of the US Armed Forces from the Middle Eastern country soon.
On Tuesday, September 22, David Helvey, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs (IPSA), broke the news. He told the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on National Security that the DOD is “planning to withdraw to zero service members by May 2021 if conditions warrant, per the U.S.-Taliban agreement.” To begin the process, officials want to decrease the number of troops to 4,500 in Afghanistan by November 2020.
This bold timeline shows President Donald Trump’s commitment to end seemingly endless wars.

A complete withdrawal relies on the Taliban fully complying with the US-Taliban agreement, which includes completely breaking ties with al Qaeda.
The full removal of troops from Afghanistan is not yet set in stone. But, this latest plan gives hope that American soldiers will safely return home and the country of Afghanistan can stand proudly on their own.
