Former US President George W Bush has labeled America’s decision to withdraw its military forces from Afghanistan as a mistake with “unbelievably bad” consequences. President Bush started the war in Afghanistan when he sent troops in after the 9/11 terror attacks, and it is America’s most protracted conflict.
President Bush voiced particular concern for the plight of women and girls in the country after soldiers leave, saying it breaks his heart. The progress that could be made for women and girls in Afghanistan, it’s unbelievable how that society changed from the brutality of the Taliban,” he said. Now all of a sudden, sadly, I’m afraid Afghan women and girls will suffer unspeakable harm.
