US President Bidden May Not Let Troops to Leave Afghanistan as Per Trump’s Deadline of May 1

The American war with Afghanistan is expected to conclude on May 1, 2021, as per the pact with Zalmay Khalilzad, a Taliban. Former US Donald Trump appointed the American special emissary to Afghanistan. Today, the new US President Joe Bidden retains it. In case, the deadline is achieved, the US would complete her longest battle just a couple of months shy of the two decades’ anniversary of the incursion.

According to an article published in Forbes, President Bidden may extend the presence of American troops in Afghanistan until November regardless of the argument with the Taliban to withdraw US troops by May 1.

May 1 Deadline hard to meet?

The question is whether the May 1 deadline is met or not. The US government is rambling, Bidden thinks achieving the deadline is quite difficult and according to current revelations, the American footstep in Afghanistan is almost 50 percent bigger than thought previously. Yes, it is 3,500 US troops instead of 2,500.

It implies withdrawal logistics will be a bit complex than expected. In the meantime, the pulsating persistence is that the troops are too early to leave Afghanistan. Probably, the sturdiest beat in US politics for over 19 years and as much as four presidential governance is just growing a bit too loud.

Biden must ignore. The US President was a voice of comparative control and a member of the Obama government. The innate deadline will allow Biden to start delivering on his promise to put an end to the ongoing wars. 

A great opportunity for the US President Biden

When it comes to the American withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, it won’t be an easy process; however, maintaining the pact is the ideal predictable choice. It has the possibility of maintaining some amount of Taliban assistance, to be honest. This gives the US President a one-off opportunity as far as American politics are concerned. Moreover, it removes the US from a terribly counterproductive involvement that would never see the fruits of success.

Taliban assistance not needed for American withdrawal

When it comes to Taliban collaboration, the US does not need it for withdrawal, and depending on the country’s foreign policy options, relying on the whims and fancies of the Taliban does not seem logical. However, if the American troops can leave with a US-Taliban agreement to reduce violence to bring more stability to Afghan politics, such a decision is welcome. Then, breaking the deadline of May 1 would make that almost unfeasible.

The situation is not hard to fathom. As far as broken pledges are concerned, they do not accelerate diplomatic progress. The Taliban did indicate that how much stock they out in Washington to honor the May 1 deadline to withdraw the US troops. Any other kind of alternative discussions outside the purview of Khalilzad’s negotiation is deemed as a failure.

The defiance of the deadline will mean the violation of the pact. A Taliban negotiator did warn that US troops must not stay beyond May 1 and any violation will have consequences.
