我見 我思 我聞
過去一週來， 阿富汗局勢之急轉直下， 使得拜登政府焦頭爛额，加上共和及民主兩黨對於政府處理撒軍之不滿， 致使拜登聲望下降。
在外交上七國高峯之缐上會議即將在今天舉行， 美國之盟國表明希望美國延長在阿富汗駐軍 ，以確保盟軍及其國民能安全撤離。
拜登總統目前尚未公開表示意見 ，早先他仍然堅持八月三十一日前要全數撤離 ，美軍厾機過去一天二十四小時的二十八航次撤走了一萬零四百人，目前仍然有成千上萬的群眾等待逃出阿富汗。
盡管美國正在加速撒離行動， 但是盟邦仍然對拜登政府錯估塔力班之情勢表示不滿 ，塔力班堅持八月底是最後之期限。
拜登政府已經正式任命前駐北約大使伯恩斯為駐中國大使， 這位資深外交官要在目前中美兩國關係陷入谷底之時出任大使是件非常艱鉅的任務 ，他在聲明中表示，很高興代表總統和美國人民就美國和中國之間的戰略競爭，以及在這個關鍵時刻面對的其他複雜挑戰開展工作。
我們目前已經處在一個非常關鍵的時刻， 美國及世界疫情尚未能抑制 ，阿富汗及台海問題再次升高緊張情勢， 如果世界領袖無法撑握情勢， 誤判世局 ，將使人類面臨一場浩劫。
Biden White House Is Facing A Nightmare
G7 leaders are pressuring President Biden to extend the deadline for U.S. troops to withdraw from Afghanistan which has caused anger and anxiety in many countries.
Biden himself has not publicly committed to such a move. Many American allies worry that they don’t have enough time to get their citizens and the Afghans who assisted in the war out of the country. An official said that on Monday approximately 10,400 people had been evacuated from Kabul on 28 separate U.S. military flights.
Biden indicated that the White House is in discussions to remain in Kabul longer, but his goal still is to have troops out of Kabul by August 31. The Taliban signaled that they wanted U.S. troops out of the country by the end of this month.
According to a reliable source, the president of France Macron told Biden that we have a moral responsibility with regard to Afghans who need protection and have shared their values.
President Biden has also nominated Nicholas Burns as Ambassador to China. Mr. Burns will face a very big challenge as the China and U.S. relationship has deteriorated. In a statement, Burns said that he welcomes this opportunity to work on the behalf of the president and the American people on the strategic competition between the U.S. and the P.R.C., as well as other difficult and complex challenges we face together at this critical juncture in our relationship.
We are so worried about the chaos in Afghanistan and the growing tensions in the Taiwan Strait. We all hope the world leaders will use their wisdom to avoid going to war.
