FUTURE GRAND STRATEGISTS
January 15 – By Caitlyn Bess: If conditions of the February 2019 Doha agreement are met, the U.S. will pull all troops out of Afghanistan by 1 May 2021. This is something Americans from all sides have wanted for a long time. President-elect Joe Biden never wanted a large military presence there in the first place, and counseled President Obama in 2009 against the surge in favor of a limited counterterrorism presence. There is little that has happened in the past 11 years to have likely changed his mind.
