From the article:

President Biden will withdraw all American troops from Afghanistan over the coming months, U.S. officials said, completing the military exit by the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that drew the United States into its longest war.

The decision, which Biden is expected to announce Wednesday, will keep thousands of U.S. forces in the country beyond the May 1 exit deadline that the Trump administration negotiated last year with the Taliban, according to a senior administration official who briefed reporters Tuesday under rules of anonymity set by the White House.

We'll be back

Wow, old post.

I think we'll be back in the Middle East, probably sometime after 2024 or 2028, but I would be it will be somewhere else (no idea where).

Until then we'll probably just use drone strikes in Afghanistan.

I’ve heard the same thing for the last two decades. The pessimist in me says the pentagon will manufacture more reasons to extend the US occupation indefinitely. Meanwhile, the optimist in me says nothing, because he died in Iraq in 06.
