On Monday, at a ceremony in Kabul (capital of Afghanistan), the top American commander in Afghanistan had resigned from his job, which took America further closer to conclude its twenty years-long war. The action appeared when Taliban insurgents keep acquiring land across the nation.
Another 4-star general is going to take on from his American-based position to plant possible attacks in defense of Government forces of Afghanistan until American troops pulled out by 31st August.
Since 2018, Scott Miller (an American General) has paid his services as the top American commander in Afghanistan. Miller relinquished command of the United States’ forever war in its weak days to General Frank McKenzie (leader of American Central Command). Moreover, he is going to start working from Central Command head office located in Tampa (Florida).
McKenzie praised Miller for his work
At the time of resigning, Gen. Frank McKenzie admired Scott Miller for his getting American soldiers to return home safely. McKenzie even praised Miller for moving out millions of equipment. The action has annoyed some of the security officials of Afghanistan, who blamed that stuff that could not have been taken for security forces of Afghanistan was taken.
Hamdullah Mohib, National Security Adviser of Afghanistan, who joined the ceremony, described that America and NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) removal has left a vacuum caused national security forces of Afghanistan stuck on the battleground without supplies, such as running out of ammunition and food.
In remarks after the event, he explained that the main effect of the removal is a deficiency of jets to resupply soldiers. At this time, the govt. is rearranging to regain strategic regions and secure its cities against Taliban advances.
The whole thing happened in the massively fortified Resolute Support head office in the center of Afghanistan’s capital at the time when Taliban insurgents are swiftly gaining areas across the country.
Head of Afghanistan’s National Council for Reconciliation of Afghanistan, Abdullah Abdullah, was present. He rejected proposals that the Taliban insurgents could do a military takeover.
He described that he was worried, of course, as the Taliban are forcing for a military solution, that is a cause of concern, but they can’t apply their will on the country militarily.
Earlier month, Abdullah Abdullah toured with Ashraf Ghani (Afghanistan’s President) to the United States, where Joe Biden (American President) ensured them, America would keep its humanitarian support for Afghanistan. Furthermore, he explained that there will be no military boots on the land of Afghanistan, America wasn’t abandoning the nation’s security requirements.
