President Biden Promises to Return All Americans from Afghanistan

On Friday, U.S. President Joe Biden announced that he promises to return all Americans home from Afghanistan. He has emphasized that it will be one of the largest and most difficult airlifts in history.

The U.S. government have made significant progress so far in getting Americans out of Afghanistan. But they experienced a pause when Afghanistan halted flights out of Kabul.

Biden said, “We will do everything within our power to ensure a safe evacuation for our Afghan allies, partners, and individuals who may be targeted due to their association with the United States.”

“The United States stands by the commitment it made to these people.”

Biden further said that his administration has clearly conveyed to the Taliban that they will respond swiftly and forcefully to any attack on their forces at the airport. Biden’s remarks counted as his third attempt this week to publicly defend his position on the execution of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

He has admitted that the Taliban’s fast return to power would be “gut-wrenching” to many Americans with profound connection to Afghanistan. He has insisted that withdrawing US and NATO forces was the right decision.

However, individuals who previously fled Afghanistan and become U.S. citizens, like Fawzia Etemadi and Haimid Naweed, felt disappointed in Biden’s response. “We trusted Joe Biden. But we are a little disappointed – the world is disappointed,” Fawzia said. Initially, she had strong hopes that President Biden would uphold his promise to bring peace to her country. “Afghans have suffered for the last 40 years. America is the world’s father, democracy’s father. No-one can explain why this is happening.”

Thousands of other Afghans living in the U.S. cannot comprehend how the Taliban came into power so quickly. They are hopeful that the world will recognise Afghanistan people need their freedom and deserve to live in peace.
