Letter to the Editor: On the U.S. Withdrawal from Afghanistan

September 12, 2021

To the Editor:

First of all, congratulations on your newspaper that accompanies us every day and unites us with Greece.

I have lived for many years in the United States. I was optimistic with the new administration and found that unfortunately, it did not do well in managing the crisis in Afghanistan. I was disappointed because I expected something more from our new president, Joe Biden. I would characterize the departure of the Americans and the flight of the Afghans as a tragic chaos that hurts the U.S. The Americans did not escape the attacks of the ruthless Taliban which immediately showed its face. Even if they say that they have changed, no one can believe them, which is why the Afghans are trying to leave their country. From the moment terrorists came to power the consequences will be tragic for the whole world, we will live in fear of unexpected attacks.

Dear Editor Your recent editorial in The National Herald on the issues with Archbishop Elpidophoros may be analyzed further to indicate his inability to offer positive elements for a successful ministry to our beloved Orthodox Church.
