Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It's not damaging to Biden at all. Most people in the US couldn't care less about Afghanistan. His next election isn't for another 3 years, and the global pandemic, climate change, and about 100 other problems will completely erase Afghanistan from everybody's memory.

Plus, he undoubtedly realizes that he is old and might not make it for a second term anyway. This is his one final chance to do what he has been talking about for decades in congress, and he is going to do it.

Nice 😉 US and general politics is about grabbing headlines ... the next election is never far away ... Obama and Democrats did poorly in midterms 2010 ... losing US Congress makes him a lame duck president. Poor stats 1968 Paris peace talks, 1980 hostages Embassy Teheran, 2012 compound Benghazi, 2021 commemoration 9/11 😣 Congress key to domestic policy, purse, appointments, judges, investigations.
