Hasty, panic withdrawal from key Afghan base shows US irresponsibility

Excerpts

From Afghanistan to Syria and Iraq, the US has left countless messes to the world and committed a series of “crimes against humanity” in the name of the “war on terrorism.” The security, economic and political situation of the entire Middle Eastern region has been affected by the US invasion, not to mention the internal situation of these specific countries.

****

The US’ so-called global counter-terrorism efforts have completely failed. Under the banner of counter-terrorism, the US has not only failed to end terrorism in these countries, but even made terrorist attacks more rampant. The “beacon of democracy” has collapsed, with scattered debris hitting Afghanistan and other countries. It would take a long period for these countries to heal the wounds, but the US does not intend to take any responsibility.
