Biden’s Afghan Disaster

Added:

The outcome of Biden’s bothched withdrawal is, tragically, not in doubt.

There will be much debate over whether trying to promote “LGBTI” rights in Afghanistan, as envisioned by U.S. progressive elites, was a good idea.

    “There will be much debate over whether trying to promote β€œLGBTI” rights in Afghanistan, as envisioned by U.S. progressive elites, was a good idea.”

    A rather irritating thing that debate will be. The far-right nutso-wackos weren’t keen on the idea of putting those “woke” ideas in the military manual.

    Though at least there’s angry articles that place the blame for the military’s rot far enough back to include the even more infamous training on DADT.

    Let’s not forget that it was Donald Trump who got Taliban leader, Abdul Ghani Baradar, released from jail. Baradar is now the leader of Afghanistan. Why did Trump and GOP immediately take down their webpage proclaiming a great agreement with the Taliban and setting the time table for withdrawal of all forces.

      No one on earth believes that the Taliban taking over the country in a way that left thousands of Americans and Afghan allies trapped behind enemy lines would have occurred under a Trump administration.

      In fact I’ll go one further. I think but for the efforts by President Trump to have diplomatic relations with the Taliban, Americans might be in even more danger now.

    The Taliban has already broken the ‘supposed’ peace treaty Trumpy negotiated in February. The GOP is so excited about it they immediately removed the webpage raving about how great the agreement was.

      Trump made it clear to the Taliban that if they moved to take the cities or expand their territory before an orderly U.S. evacuation, the deal was off and the U.S. would provide air support to Afghan national troops. In fact, he moved back the deadline for the evacuation because of Taliban transgressions. Weak, befuddled Bidden and his cabinet of credentialed idiots sent the opposite message, that they trusted whatever the Taliban leaders said, just as they trusted the Iranians to abide by their deal. Fools and incompetents.

    In terms of LGBTQ rights, the Taliban favor capital punishment, and the “democratic” Afghan nation favored long prison sentences.p

    Razor: “ …does your commitment to these values involve fighting for this flag before surrendering to the Taliban, or packing it in a suitcase before fleeing in a Chinook …

    I was moved yesterday by the photo of General Donahue, commander of the 82nd Airborne Division, the last American soldier to leave Afghanistan. The 82nd was first in, last out — All the Way.

    As I was looking at that photo, remembering my comrades from Vietnam and thinking about my nephew and other 82nd veterans of the Afghanistan war, I wondered about Razor and all the others who have been so quick to jump on the military in recent weeks. How many of them served? How many of them know what combat is like? How many of them put blood on the ground for our country? The older I get, the less I am willing or able to suffered paper patriots.
