Afghanistan and Iraq withdrawal deadlines to be extended, again

It is strange how right after a group of Taliban fighters were allegedly able to take out aSpecial Forces Chinook with a shoulder-mounted rocket; support is quickly rallied to justifykeeping troops in Afghanistan until “at least” 2024, according to The Daily Telegraph. In a climate where the United States and NATO are more despised by the Afghan people than ever, it seems a bit too convenient that there was such a hefty loss of life which was instantly used to justify a continued presence.
