The right thing to do
A return of Taliban control in Afghanistan means at least four things:
A resurgence of Taliban supported terrorism against the people of the United States.
Deadly retaliation against Afghans who helped American forces in the fight against the Taliban.
Continuing war crimes committed by the Taliban's extremist leadership.
An imminent return to severe persecution against ethnic and religious minorities, an end to the rights of girls and women, and a conclusion to any hope for Afghan freedom and democracy.
We, the undersigned, demand that President Biden's Administration and Congressional leaders act immediately to ...
- PROTECT America's homeland against Taliban retaliation by giving the Afghan army the modest support they need to continue their fight against the Taliban.
- SUPPLY the parts and supplies the Afghan security forces need to provide adequate air support.
- PROVIDE supplementary air support to Afghan forces fighting to defeat Taliban militants.
- KEEP a small number of troops in Afghanistan to protect the maintenance personnel and supplies Afghanistan's air forces require.
GRANT immediate asylum to those Afghans, and their immediate family members, who risked their lives to help America and protect U.S. forces during our war against the Taliban.
