Former Vice President and the candidate of the Democratic elections in 2020, Joe Biden believes that America can stop being a sufferer of terrorism from Afghanistan if it insists that Pakistan provide it with the bases to carry on operations against the terrorists in the country of war. Reportedly, Biden went offensive on September 13 in the third Democratic debate of the 2020 competition for the White House. In the three hour showdown in Houston, Texas, the front runner Biden fought the rivals from the liberal people, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren.
Joe Biden was considered more powerful and aggressive as compared to the first two democratic debates for the elections of 2020. The 76-year old, Joe Biden elaborated on his counter-terrorism strategy and how the US can prevent itself from being the victim of terror out of Afghanistan. Reportedly, Biden believes that the US should provide air bases and convincing Pakistan to provide bases for us to airlift to operate from where the country knows and move against it. The US is currently part of the prolonged war with Afghanistan and has more than 14,000 troops in the country. Joe Biden also discussed his vision of the country and also pressing issues that are being faced by working families.
At last night’s #DemDebate, I discussed my vision for the country and how I'll deliver tangible progress on the most pressing issues facing working families.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) September 13, 2019

US President Donald Trump's negotiator, Zalmay Khalilzad announced a peace deal with the Taliban. The peace deal which was proposed was that the US would withdraw 5,400 troops from Afghanistan in more than 20 weeks. However, it is still reported that final approval will be given by President Trump. Recently, Donald Trump cancelled the secret peace talk which was supposed to be held with respect for a group taking responsibility for the deadly attack in Kabul. The same attack caused the death of an American soldier along with 11 others. President Trump was also due to meet Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and senior Taliban leaders last week, which was also not successful.
