Thank goodness the end is almost here. I sure hope it's a complete withdrawal of troops and none of this leave some military advisors behind nonsense. And absolutely no more taxpayer dollars are to go to Afghanistan.

Early Sunday morning, U.S. negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad tweeted that the latest round of talks had concluded and they were “at the threshold of an agreement” and said he would travel to Kabul Sunday for further consultations. Marathon talks have gone late into the night this past week, as an unofficial Sept. 1 deadline for a peace deal arrives.

A third soldier this week died in Afghanistan on Thursday. Let's get them the **** out of there already, we've been there for 18 years.

I don't care about political parties, the government just needs to get it done.

Excellent move Mr. Trump. There’s no reason for us to be in Afghanistan.

" (read as W and Cheney)", why didn't obama and biden pull them out. THey had 8 YEARS to do so.

Some on the left NEVER take responsibility for their own actions. It is always the "other" guys" fault!

Leaving 8000 still there is not delivering on a promise.

Defeat? You mean another humiliating case of mission drift, to the point there was no mission. And no, nation building is not a mission.
