America’s longest war ends as US general steps down

America’s longest war ends after US general Miller steps down. A formal end to the U.S. military mission in Afghanistan on Aug. 31, a date set by President Joe Biden to end the two-decade-old war. Miller, the last four-star commander to serve in Afghanistan, vowed to remember the lives lost in the fighting and called on the Taliban to stop the violent attacks in the region.

“What I tell the Taliban is they’re responsible too. The violence that’s going on is against the will of the Afghan people, and it needs to stop,” Miller said. While the ceremony may offer some sense of closure for U.S. veterans who served in Afghanistan.


U.S. Marine General Kenneth McKenzie flew into Kabul to undertake America’s future assistance to Afghan security forces. He also mentioned that the U.S. would support Afghanistan whenever needed in the future.
