The return of the United States to Afghanistan will pose serious dangers, General Mackenzie said
Gen. McKenzie, the head of the Senate, said that if the United States had to return to Afghanistan, it could be in serious danger.
Briefing U.S. lawmakers, Gen. Frank McKenzie, the head of U.S. Central Command, said it was “serious” to return to Afghanistan in the event of a terrorist attack or a new terrorist threat after the withdrawal of US troops. Stages and risks may arise.
He said that dealing with the growing terrorism or any new incident or tackling the threat of terrorism would be a trying phase.
“I don’t want to downplay it,” said Kenneth Frank McKenzie. I can’t look at the matter through tinted glasses, nor can I say that this step will be easy. He told the Standing Committee on Armed Forces of the House of Representatives that it was quite possible that in the future there would be counter-terrorism issues which would be inevitable.
Informing the committee of his concerns, he further said that in this regard, we are reviewing all our resources so that if required, this work can be carried out in the most reasonable, risk-free manner. This task will be extremely difficult. By the end of next month, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin will have made all possible suggestions for resolving the issue. Other officials are also considering possible solutions.
Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense Amanda Dory, on the other hand, told lawmakers that all issues are being considered to keep up with the security situation. It can be said that the national security team headed by the President is considering all aspects of Afghanistan’s future while making its decisions.
The statement from General McKenzie, who is in charge of the Middle East and South Asia, comes as military planning officials plan to withdraw 2,500 to 3,500 troops from Afghanistan next month. Are preparing, which will end the two-decade-long war
