U.S. President Joe Biden has once again emphasized the capability of the U.S. military to neutralize terrorist threats, stating that U.S. military personnel stationed outside Afghanistan will respond to threats originating from terrorism.

In his annual letter to Congress, President Biden wrote that the U.S. military is prepared to address threats arising from Afghanistan that target American interests.

He highlighted that U.S. forces deployed in Europe, Africa, South Asia, and the Pacific are ready to counter ISIS and other threats. He emphasized that “the U.S. military is stationed outside Afghanistan to address threats to the U.S. homeland and interests that may arise from within Afghanistan.”

The U.S. President also highlighted the presence of U.S. forces in Syria, American military advisors in Iraq, the increased deployment in Saudi Arabia to counter the Yemeni Houthis, and the boost in American troops in Jordan and Lebanon.

Previously, Joe Biden had reiterated the U.S. military’s capability to manage terrorist threats from Afghanistan, referencing a U.S. airstrike that resulted in the death of a former Al-Qaeda leader. He stated that managing such threats does not require the physical presence of American forces in the area.

This emphasis on counter-terrorism comes amid escalating ISIS and other terrorist attacks in Afghanistan. The increase in these attacks has heightened concerns about regional stability and the potential for threats to U.S. interests abroad.

The rise of ISIS and other terror groups in Afghanistan has complicated the security situation, necessitating a robust international response to prevent the resurgence of terrorist safe havens.
