Witdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan is not a stink bomb

Reader comment on item: Predicting the Biden Administration in the Middle East

Submitted by Alex Baldor (Canada), Dec 1, 2020 at 23:44

I disagree with your characterization of Trump's decision of withdrawing troops from Iraq and Afghanistan as an irresponsible act and a stink bomb for the following administration.
On the contrary I believe that Trump took a very responsible and brave decision to end an unwinnable war that sucks human and economic resources of the US with no benefit whatsoever for the United States and its long-term objectives. It was Obama's administration that left Trump stink bombs with a clear objective to hamper the incoming administration and damage the interests of the United States. I'm referring to the bogus unreasonable claim that the Russia assisted Trump in winning the elections.
