War-Thirsty Media Demanding Another War

The United States has officially ended the longest war in its history with the final troops clearing out of Afghanistan. President Biden addressed the nation to explain his decision to end the war and posed the following question to his critics: “to those asking for a third decade of war in Afghanistan, I ask, ‘What is the vital national interest?’” Even though polling data has shown for a long time that it’s time for America to get out of the Middle East, members of the media haven’t seemed so pleased with Biden’s decision. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki held a press conference yesterday and one reporter asked her, “does the president envision any situation in which he might deploy a large amount of US troops abroad under his presidency?” The fact that the default solution to conflict for this reporter is extensive military presence goes to show there needs to be a paradigm shift when it comes to US foreign policy. Another reporter told Psaki that Biden seemed angry in his speech to the American public, asking “who’s he mad at?” This pushback from the media was predictable, as conflicts tend to drive ratings. Now, we’re witnessing the media try to get the last play it can out of the twenty-year war in Afghanistan before having to move on to the next topic.
