I cannot help but ask the question. How will the military withdrawal from Afghanistan [by September 11th] affect the current state of world affairs? I realize this is a general, even ambiguos question. Without being explicit, I feel the question can be assigned to a number of high-priority circumstances worldwide and here in The United States.

There is something about this move, something uncomfortable. Possibly, it’s the date itself giving me feelings of apprehension and suspicion. Setting a timeline that ends on September 11th, 2021, doesn’t feel right. Besides being disrespectful to the American People, I don’t like it for reasons not yet revealed. Quite possibly, Joe Biden may have forgotten what happened on September 11, 2001. Given his current state of mental incapacity, he may have chosen the date randomly. Sadly, I’m only jesting halfway. As I’ve written before, Biden is a victim of Senior Citizen Abuse. I hope and pray we do not witness something tragic on the 20th anniversary of the attacks.

As I write this piece, I’m thinking about those who have been killed this week by the taliban. I’m thinking about what happened in Afghanistan after the 1980s. I know this as a fact: If an object is removed, then something else will take its place. This applies to everything within the Universe. Relationships, Structures, and even Parking Spaces; nothing remains void.

I served in The United States Army Reserve from 1986 to 1994. I have the highest level [first-hand] of respect for our military.
