Today we salute our leaders and chief who promised to leave no one behind, who told the American people about his commitment to remain in Afghanistan until every citizen was evacuated. After the last U.S. plane departed Kabul,
Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. on Monday announced Monday evening that the last of the U.S. troops stationed at the Kabul airport had left, even though hundreds of Americans likely remain. So much for “Nobody gets left behind.”
Under Joe Biden, the terrorist called all the shots, let’s stop lying to ourselves and everyone else. The Taliban is a terrorist group yet we depended on them for safe passage for our own people and those who helped us. Military operations are supposed to take options away from your enemy. Yet the U.S. became totally dependent on the good graces of the Taliban for the evacuation at the Kabul airport. That itself was a disaster.
We gave up one of the best airports in the world at Bagram. The base was abandoned and all the equipment was left behind, so there would be more troops to cover the embassy and the Kabul airport but we still did not have enough troops so we asked the bad guys to help. Smart move?
If you listen to the administration spin during the evacuation; “greater success than the Berlin airlift.” This was like waving a red flag in front of the enemy thus making the airport an irresistible target for terrorist and they proceeded to do the deed. They would increase the humiliation of the U.S. retreat. But the biggest lie of all was that we struck back.
Because Biden said we will get them, a manufactured drone strike was the pollical solution. Just a few hours later the administration claimed that they got the guys that planned the bombing. Now the intelligence agency, who could not stop the bombing could find the bad guys hundreds of miles away in a few hours is such a blatant lie that no one could believe except for some mainstream news agencies who tried to give Biden cover for the failures. Then there was a second drone strike on a potential bomber. Wow our intelligence agency is really alive and well. Makes you wonder why did they not get these guys before.
Finally; Ignore your friends and allies. Biden decided on a plan that would be just a “bug out.” This would mean no coordination with the Afghans or our NATO allies. Afghanistan might collapse in a week, 11 days or 6 months, but so what. They will have all the military equipment to sell to the highest bidder.
What about those they left behind, stranded no, no abandoned? If they can somehow get out or if former retired military can get them out, they should be awarded Biden Fortune. The secretary of state, Blinken, Jake Sullivan and all the Generals that unanimously approved the plan, plus Joe Biden all need to be held responsible and given the award for the biggest failure in American history a large letter “F” painted red for the blood they left behind and then, Fired, American citizenship revoked and then sent to Afghanistan for re-education.
