Biden’s ambitious plan to end the 9/11 era has been tainted by a bloody retreat from Afghanistan.

President Joe Biden of the United States has a purpose in mind, and he will not be deterred by dead marines, desperate Afghan allies, unhappy NATO partners, or dwindling poll numbers.

He wants American forces out of Afghanistan by the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist strikes in the United States. This fall is meant to be the start of America’s post-9/11 period, a fresh start for a country anxious to put two decades of endless conflict behind it.

If this is the case, the age will end in the same way it began: with slaughter. On Thursday, US evacuation attempts in Kabul were rocked by the deaths of more than a dozen American service members and dozens of Afghan civilians.

It was the bloodiest day for US troops in exactly a decade since a military helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan in August 2011. According to a White House spokesman, it was his worst day as president. Biden launched a press conference with a frank understatement of his own.

“It’s been a difficult day,” he admitted. The president now has to choose between two competing goals as a result of the suicide strikes, emphasizing the pullout’s complexity. “We will hunt you down and make you pay,” Biden said of members of the ISIS cell responsible for the attack.

Two, he committed to leave Afghanistan on schedule and to continue evacuating Americans and Afghan troops ahead of a deadline set for August 31. Biden showed no remorse for concluding an operation that cost billions of dollars and killed tens of thousands of soldiers and Afghans.

“It was past time to put an end to a 20-year conflict,” he remarked on Thursday. Biden has suffered immediate political repercussions. Democrats are at significant risk of losing control of Congress in next year’s legislative midterm elections if his popular opinion polling drops.

Biden’s net approval rating has plummeted by ten points this month, according to an average of surveys compiled by the RealClearPolitics website. Some of the reduction could be attributed to the spreading virus, but the majority of the shift occurred in the days following the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul.

The polling also demonstrates the negative attitude about Afghanistan in the United States. According to various polls, the majority of Americans support ending the operation; nevertheless, just around a quarter believe Biden is handling the transition successfully.
