Top US General in Afghanistan Quits, New General Takes Over

    As Taliban continued their aggression to gain more territories in Afghanistan amidst US troops leaving the country, General Austin Scott Miller, on Monday, has announced resignation from his position amidst a ceremony in Kabul as the US’ announced the two-decade-long war in Afghanistan has ended, while reports are coming in Taliban forces are gaining control in Afghanistan. Miller has been the top commander in Afghanistan since his appointment to the role in 2018.

    Marine Gen Frank McKenzie,  took over from Miller and would operate from the central command headquarters in Tampa, Florida. He will assume command and continue the airstrikes in defence of the Afghan forces at least until the US pulls out all its troops by August 31 according to agencies reports coming in today.

    During the flag-passing ceremony at the Resolute Support headquarters at the heart of Kabul, Miller remembered the US and Nato troops along with the thousands of Afghan nationals who were killed during the war. He said he told Taliban officials that “it’s important that the military sides set the conditions for a peaceful and political settlement in Afghanistan… But we know that with that violence, it would be very difficult to achieve a political settlement.
