Heck, if all of the liberals on social media are going to refer to Donald Trump as “TFG” (the former guy), we’re going to start referring to him as the great MAGA king, which is how President Joe Biden refers to him. You might recall that blip on the radar when Biden pulled our troops out of Afghanistan, leaving behind billions in military hardware and who knows how many hundred Americans.
During his debate with Trump, candidate Biden said it was long past time to end our war in Afghanistan and instead focus on what was achievable: a narrow counterterrorism mission.
The New York Times reports Monday that Biden is planning to redeploy hundreds of U.S. ground forces to Somalia in what’s being called an “open-ended U.S. counterterrorism operation.” How open-ended? We suppose that’s a question better suited for whichever Republican is elected in 2024.
Breaking News: President Biden approved a plan to redeploy hundreds of ground forces into Somalia, reviving an open-ended U.S. counterterrorism operation. The move largely reverses Donald Trump's decision to withdraw most troops from the country.https://t.co/uR7uYYK1s1

We got out of Afghanistan FINALLY. And now we’re going back to Somalia?

This is not going to help.
Intervention will only mean more division and escalation of the conflict. It is a recipe that has the potential to cause Somalia's problem to become as bad as that of Afghanistan.

Were they invited by the Somali government or is this just another non-sanctioned sort of invasion?

Somalia was one of Biden's favorite wars and he's glad for the opportunity to re-start it

Somalia has a well trained army that's capable of terminating Al Shababa. We don't need foreign troops in 🇸🇴 we all seen how that worked in Afghanistan.

Wait for "I stand with Somalia" movement on social media NOT

Ok this nostalgia for the 90's thing is starting to get out of hand.

1. Wow, feels like 90% of his decisions have been to reverse what Trump did instead of working to truly make America a better place to live. Too many people got into their feelings during this last election.

Well, as long as it reverses a Trump thing we should all be happy.

So this is a counterterrorism operation, as opposed to a special military operation.

Can’t argue with counterterrorism.
I'm going to come back to this tweet in about 20 years…

Like this tweet?
VP on Afghanistan: "We will leave in 2014."
— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 12, 2012
Mark down this tweet as well: Our troops will only be involved in training and not combat:
Just in: Pentagon publicly confirms Pres. Biden has authorized resumption of basing US forces in Somalia to continue training local forces fighting al-Shabaab.
"Our forces are not now, nor will they be, directly engaged in combat operations," @PentagonPresSec says.

Visibly uncomfortable Gens. Milley and McKenzie refuse to call Joe Biden’s apparent lie about Afghanistan withdrawal ‘a false statement’ https://t.co/lG470WiKkQ
