But now that I see 5K-10K Americans are stuck in Afghanistan, I can't help but think that this borders on criminal. I watched the attached interview with Matt Zeller earlier who called this and it sounds like the Biden administration ignored his warnings.
They wanted to leave more boots on the ground with air support and wait till winter.
Matt, you look for a path when you are lost. When you have the most powerful military in the world you create a path.
We need a Presidential statement that if one hair on one American’s head is harmed that we will not acknowledge a Taliban controlled government and we will route them out and serve justice accordingly! Never negotiate with terrorist!
We are in R E A L L Y in trouble. And just think, we have THREE AND A HALF MORE YEARS OF THIS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!
Joe and Beto don’t trust us with AR-15s, yet they just armed terrorist for the next twenty years.
But Biden did take a few hours out of his Camp David vacation to tell his people he did the right thing and handled it well before going back into hiding, so it's all good now!
Alham, that is our only hope.
Hmm, where is the U. N. In denouncing this action?
Nice job, America :^/
Just grab your bow and go hunting because there isn't one thing we (pions) can do one thing about it. Hunt like it is your last hunt, which could be possible.
Good hunting to all.
That's the attitude China Joe and his hoe are expecting from us. It's also the attitude that is carrying us down the path of democratic destruction.
It pains me to hear able bodied Americans talk this way. It's just another stick in the eye of the people that DID choose to stand and fight regardless of the circumstances. The new generation is poised to give up everything we've fought for to this point.
...At least we were able to finally got rid of those pesky racist statues that were littering our public parks!
Sad...to say the least...
Gen Milley was brought into the discussion above. I was not impressed with Gen Milley last year before all this mess started. He is a Wokee. I have lost confidence in him and he needs to be "invited to retire" ASAP. He should not be made out to be the sole scape-goat as there are numerous folks who failed to do their duty. WRT to the General......
Gen Milley is also the guy who was wanting the military to study Critical Race Theory.
Gen Milley is the same guy who wants to rename military bases that aren't PC-named.
The below article sums up the General's lack understanding. With all the resources he has at his disposal....how could he be so wrong.

Milley: Taliban takeover of Afghanistan 'not a foregone conclusion'
By Darryl Coote
July 21 (UPI) -- The United States' top military leaders on Wednesday touted Afghanistan's abilities to prevent the Taliban from taking over as the militant terrorist group has made territorial advances amid the United States' withdrawal from the war-torn country.
Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters during a press conference with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin that despite the narrative that the Taliban is winning, the Afghan Security Forces "have the capacity to sufficiently fight and defend their country."
"A negative outcome, a Taliban automatic military takeover, is not a foregone conclusion," he said. "We will continue to monitor the situation closely and make adjustments as necessary."
The United States began its drawdown from the Middle Eastern country in early May, which is at 95% complete with a deadline of Aug. 31. Amid the withdrawal, the Taliban has been making territorial gains.
Milley said the militant organization has gained control of about half of Afghanistan's 420 districts, so "strategic momentum appears to be sort of with the Taliban."
However, none of the nation's 34 provincial capitals have been seized, he said.
"There clearly is a narrative out there that the Taliban are winning," he said. "In fact, they are propagating an inevitable victory on their behalf, they're dominating a lot of the airwaves."
The militant organization has been "putting pressure" on the outskirts of 17 of the provincial capital with the plan to isolate major population centers, but the Afghan military is capable of keeping them at bay, he said.
"The Afghan Security Forces, though, are consolidating their forces," he said. "So part of this is they're giving up district centers in order to consolidate their forces because they're taking an approach to protect the population, and most of the population lives in the provincial capitals and the capital city of Kabul."
The defense of the country, he said, is up to the Afghan people.
"There's other factors that determine outcomes," he said. "The two most important combat multipliers actually is will and leadership. And this is going to be a test now of the will and leadership of the Afghan people, the Afghan Security Forces and the government of Afghanistan."
Totally agree and re-reading my post I see I was not clear. I was disappointed in Biden that he made excuses and did not show the will to create that path.
Recall during the Prez debates last year that then candidate Biden responded weakly to a question and then Prez Trump jumped in and stated that was a political answer and called Biden a politician in a negative sense. I thought Prez Trump was right and thought that one-liner was funny. Well....it's not too funny today in light of the collapse of A-Stan and the U.S.
Prez Biden IS NOT a leader nor manager....he is a career politician with no successful, high-level practical experience. He and the left-wing media touted his international and diplomatic cred. Both Robert Gates and the late Sen John McCain said Prez Biden was wrong on many foreign policy issues going back to the VN war timeframe.
IMO history will show Prez Biden was wrong to dismantle many of the policies that Prez Trump had in place. We can look at the Trump policies Biden changed by line item and see he was wrong at many of these things. The border, energy independence, economy, international diplomacy, crime, etc. Prez Biden did these changes for political reasons and not practical reasons because Prez Trump put them in place. We have the luxury of now looking back and comparing both men's decisions and can now see who was right and who was wrong (so far).
Now.....a huge mistake we are now realizing is Prez Biden's pick for his VP. The VP is supposed to be the right arm to the Prez. The VP is supposed to have broad, high-level leadership experience....a track record. VP Harris has none. She was a politically correct choice to get votes. She was tasked with overseeing the border and she ran away. She is of no use to the President. With Sarah Palin.....she was picked for votes too (as most running mates are) but at least was a successful governor of a state. Pence had high-level experience too. Ironically...VP Biden did not.
Prez Biden's cognitive issues will now come under more scrutiny. When the left-wing media turns on their candidate, you know something is catastrophically wrong. IMO....it's safe to say Prez Biden is a paper President. Someone else is pulling the strings....I'm not sure who or what though.
So....where do we go from here?? I see 4 possible directions we (the country) can go and I believe they will be topics of great discussion nationwide in the future.
1. Prez Biden resigns
2. Prez Biden is impeached
3. The 25th Amendment is invoked
4. Prez Biden stays in office
None of those four will be good for the country....but I think one of the first three is now necessary. The major problem with those is the common denominator....VP Harris would become the Prez. If/when/should we (the country) get rid of her.....that means the Speaker of the House then becomes the Prez. I don't see something like that happening until after the 2022 Congressional elections. I think any person running for a political office in 2022 with a "D" after their name is in dire trouble.
Now for the media......they are a major problem for our democracy. IMO.....they are active political advocates and supporters for the Dem Party. That has to change or they should loose their 1st Amendment protections.
FB and Twitter have to be looked at for their biased censorship. I just read a news article a bit ago saying so far today, Twitter is allowing the Taliban to keep their accounts. If a Repub Prez (2024) or Congress (2022) becomes a reality.....FB and Twitter need to be held accountable. It would be nice if that could be done in a bipartisan way.
Congress......simple.....Congressional term limits need to be put into the Constitution. The lack of reasonable term limits allows individual politicians to become career politicians and way too powerful over the rest of the country. We can not rely on a state to self-correct their politician. Career politicians are bad for our country and democracy. Congressional term limits are a national equalizer. The folks need to demand it!!
Mike.....my last five years in the CG were in CGHQ inside the Beltway. I worked with many CG flag officers. Most are political in nature but that is not necessarily a bad thing. They are the interface between the real politicians (usually Congress) and the troops/sailors in the field. As long as they fight for the service and troops...that's cool. When they fight for their own benefit or political agenda....that's not cool at all. If you're around them enough, you can sniff out whether their intentions or agenda is/are for the service/troops or themselves. I've seen great Admirals and not so great ones.
Their letter was posted in the media on 5/12/21. They are looking like geniuses right now!

Now Joe and the hoe will sit back and watch it all burn! F'n genius!!!
And to top it off...we have bowsiters admitting they have no desire to stand up for this country...pretty shameful...
This Foreign Policy debacle is just the latest one. Domestically, open border invasion by the MILLIONS, covid be damned. Yet closed to Cubans fleeing communism? Easy to see a pattern with any semblance of common sense. But nobody sees a thing. Closes US pipeline and weeks later gives blessings to Russian pipeline. nah.... nothing there. Does all he can to shut down drilling and exploration in US (great job NM....) calls for OPEC to open supply. Support riots and the destruction of race relations with CRT, etc. Declares a guy with a buffalo headdress and a flag literally the greatest threat to the country since the Civil War. Then calls to put anyone who complains about mask mandates on terrorist watch list. This just scratching the surface in what.... 7 months??? But nobody sees a thing. Most popular president ever...... you people are insane.
Folks, we literally have RECEIPTS of those who bought and paid for Biden. Chinese in it for millions. Ukraine in for millions. Moscow in for millions. Best money they ever spent. Proof, bank statements, transfers, etc. And most of it all known and available BEFORE the election. Some knew all this, people not among the clueless sheep. And STILL voted for it. Complicit in the willful destruction of the country.
How? How could this have possibly happened? The most free, most powerful country the world has ever seen. Caught self involved over pronouns and unicorn farts. Trust our government, they have your best interests at heart. What could go wrong?
There will be a day of reckoning for those involved. If not in this life then the next. Those who conspired will pay. Evil for a "cause" is still evil.
Impeach him? Resign? Cool, we then go to most incompetent VP since Biden himself, Heels Up Harris. Caught once again between Scoundrels and Cowards.
1.The Age of Pioneers 2.The Age of Conquest 3.The Age of Commerce 4.The Age of Affluence 5.The Age of Intellect 6.The Age of Decadence 7.The Age of Collapse “we are here”
Somehow I don't believe this honest reaction from a liberal will be enough for some here but hey...you asked.
1. How do we get our citizens, contractors and allies out of there? I think that is the first priority.
2. If we choose to go back in there with massive amounts of troops and fire power to rescue those folks and clean house, do we have the stomach for it? I have no doubt the Taliban will take our citizens hostage and kill some if we did that. What is acceptable?
They are busy dealing with erections lasting more than 4 hours because of the news that Greg Abbot has Covid.
Move to unseat pelosi as Speaker and elect the one who needs to be the successor.
Impeach the entire administration fixing the harris conundrum.
WHAT DID YOU ALL EXPECT ...........................WHEN YOU VOTED FOR A DEMENTIA PATIENT???!!! : (
You're right!... someone close to me died while providing security during an historic vote in the AL Anbar Province. This is the most unacceptable moment in my life...but hey...the bad orange man isn't here to hurt our feelings anymore!...right?
Not to mention how many Afghan citizens have been, or are about to be, executed for enjoying the American influence we forced upon and falsely promised them for the last 20 years.
If you're even slightly surprised that Biden and the hoe would f this up THIS bad!? ...well...again...you're more ignorant than I gave you credit for.
Are you a religious man? if so, you should thank God Trump got banned from Twitter and Facebook. He might argue with the Taliban that still has freedom of speech in the good Ole USA!
Yeah...you don't know DICK about honesty!

PC-ism and woke-ism is a cancer within the military. It is a prime example of failure by our senior officer and enlisted leaders to keep the military out of politics and social experiments.
“The military is working on alternative ways to get Americans, Afghans, and third-country nationals safely to the airport. "We are executing an alternate path,” a defense official said.”
Hopefully the military will go rouge on the politicians.
It's a cancerous pandemic across the board. The world is laughing their asses off at the stupidity level on display in the USA.
How about Biden et. al. apologize for being dishonest, lying, inept morons first?
I bet if the military folks were polled....the Biden/Harris approval numbers would be in the bottom of the tank.
“Is there really any surprise? This isn't incompetence. He was bought and paid for to destroy America from within. This was known before he was elected.”
Alham, based on your experience with military planning processes can you see how this Afghan withdrawal could go this bad?
I am retired military and worked a total of 43 years with the U. S. Army and cannot fathom the incompetence! More importantly, it brings the question of what was the CinC’s intent?
Biden and his whole team need to be removed from office..... N O W!!!
I don’t think you could pull the military out over night, leave all the weapons behind for our enemy to have, leave tens of thousands of civilians behind, and think everything would turn out swell.
From news reports it sounds like we have 3 times as many boots on the ground now, as we did a month ago?
Oops I guess the well thought out plans didn’t work, with contingency plans for everything completely failed on every single level.
Kind of feeling like Joe Joe may have been tricked into starting a world wide disaster to get him out of office? Or maybe some powerful people just tricked him into doing this to get another war going and get the money rolling in, who knows.
Hard to imagine failure on this level could be accidental. Like everyone around him saw him driving towards a cliff at 60 mph, but no one said anything.
Elk season starts Saturday. Guessing either a new president or war in The Middle East before season is over end of September.
KS has admitted it; unfortunately he can't explain or justify it.
But once their ridiculous positions meet the real world and get destroyed they simply ignore it and move onto something else.
I've decided since I'm to blame for the rest of the country getting COVID, they're to blame for bloodshed that is just around the corner. I'm going to call them stupid for their selfish voting decisions that will kill thousands of people...both American and otherwise. The worst part is the knife they jammed into the backs of the men and women that sacrificed their lives for our freedom. I blame them for the ultimate act of treason against their own!
I already stated my opinion when asked and said this whole mess is stupid and Biden owns it. So you want me to justify something I think is wrong. I’m not justifying s#%t. I don’t justify things that are clearly wrong or stupid because I voted for the guy…unlike you jokers. You can’t even condemn what happened on January 6th. Hell, Shawn Magyar admitted on this website that he was there on January 6th and broke the law. Like it was something to be proud of. And you all just give his traitorous actions a pass.
Until you can start call balls and strikes for both teams your nothing but hypocrites.
Lastly, Shawn Magyar (Alham) was so concerned about his “hunt bud” in AFG that he made this thread but yet he only mentions his “hunt bud” once in 13 posts. Amazing…
Lastly we don’t need comments from self professed morons. need. We’re over your BS.
By the way, the FBI said nothing in your linked article. Who’s the liar? I’ve never seen a official statement from the FBI that it was or was not a insurrection. That’s what I saw. Violence (against cops no less), organization by some groups, military tactical gear, a noose for Pence, breaking into the capital to stop a constitutional process. That pretty much nails insurrection definition. I know what I saw.
But you just can’t make yourself condemn the wrong because you keep justifying it as right. Go ahead and put lipstick on that pig.
bland, maybe u should throw q-anon into your nonsensical rants, just for flavor
Yeah...neither does anyone else. She's the only one that died due to the situation. But keep pushing your narrative...
Not just Biden. Everyone that voted for this man "owns" it. You knew he was blatantly incompetent. They man can't string five words together to form a coherent sentence and proved all thru the campaign. Pretty much accomplished nothing in fifty years feeding at the public trough, other than enriching his own coffers.
His gross incompetence was known and voiced by his former boss. And you still voted for him. The man that couldn't beat the most unlikable woman in the world in 2016, along with a VP that couldn't garner any more that 5% support from her own party in the primaries......you voted for it. 'Cuz the orange hair man bad.
THIS^^^: As I said earlier, this smells of a high level deal. Even an idiot like Biden wouldn't leave the enemy with billions of $$ in weaponry without it being absolutely intentional.
They consider them chattel.
Unless I missed it....I still haven't seen any plans on how we will get our citizens and allies out of that area safely.
and we are once again caught between Cowards and Scoundrels.

The right-wing nuts can spin this any way they want and try to white-wash it. It was wrong and you have yet to state that...hypocrite. What's the matter...the pig won't hold still for the lipstick?
Are you a member of the Proud Boys or 3%ers?
Irony everywhere lately. Thanks for the reminder Whitey.
It’s takes an effort so monumental to claim that you hate partisan politics, to only blame the previous president as the cause, that it truly can’t be matched in irony.
“ Reuters said there has, “Been little, if any, recent discussion by senior Justice Department officials of filing charges such as ‘seditious conspiracy’ to accuse defendants of trying to overthrow the government,” and no plans for racketeering charges.
Sources also said no charges were pending against any individual or group for playing “a central role in organizing or leading the protest .”
The officials also noted investigators “so far found no evidence” that former President Donald Trump “or people directly around him were involved in organizing the violence.”
You also called it an “armed insurrection “ but the FBI has debunked that lie too!
Johnson: How many firearms were confiscated in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds during that day?
Sanborn: To my knowledge, we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point, but I don’t want to speak on behalf of Metro and Capitol police, but, to my knowledge, none.
Johnson: So nobody has been charged with an actual firearms weapon in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds?
Sanborn: Correct. The closest we came was the vehicle that had the molotov cocktails in it and when we did a search of that vehicle later on there was a weapon, but…
Johnson: How many shots were fired that we know of?
Sanborn: I believe the only shots that were fired were the ones that resulted in the death of the one lady.
The picture is what a real armed insurrection looks like. The one your boy enabled.
For the sake of argument there was no insurrection. Does it diminish what happened on January 6th?
I noticed you won’t answer any of my other questions:
Were those that participated in the riot wrong?
Should those who entered the capital illegally be prosecuted and imprisoned if found guilty?
Are you a member of the Proud Boys or 3%ers?
Notice these are simple yes/no questions. However, you likely won’t answer all of them and it shows your hypocrisy.
Doesn't matter, though. You own the the whole steaming pile.
The double standard set forth by the democrats, and their water carrying lackeys here and elsewhere around the USA, is beyond outrageous, it's contemptable. Imagine if that was a BLM protestor rioting in the streets, beating down a senior citizen while exercising their right to protest, and a street cop shot her..... we would be reading a different headline. The water carriers here know it as well as the rest of us, they just can't let their ego get out of the way to admit it.
You’re just floundering. Swimming in your ignorance.
I clearly stated that Biden owns this Afghanistan debacle. You can’t do the same for Trump and the morally wrong and corrupt things he has done and said. Nor call out the idiots responsible for January 6th. Back the Blue my a#%!
Who’s floundering? Hypocrite.
Would you be talking about the Democrats who mangled the election process, as well as buying street corner votes in every ghetto in America on their way to truly buying an election? Not to mention your corrupt media you quote religiously, daily. What about the role they played with their lies and innuendo leading up to election day? What about your precious liberal Senators and Representatives who propped up the turds occupying the two highest offices in the country?
Plenty of blame to go around scooter.
Not until Congress and this administration start imprisoning people for entering the country illegally.
Keep at it though...you're entertaining at least!
KS - I’ll at least say you’re calling out Biden for what he’s doing in Afghanistan as truly deplorable. Where I believe you are way off base is placing it on the level of Jan 6, that kind of logic makes me scratch my head. You place the blame solely on Trump even though he didn’t directly or indirectly cause this Jan 6 event - now finally acknowledged by our liberal anti-Trump media sources. Yet you continue to be stuck clinging to this false narrative. Other than Dana C and Biden, the rest of us clearly see that this debacle in Afghanistan is all on Biden - his decision and he should be held accountable as you said personally and politically. Don’t soften that by equating it to an overblown event by some lawless crowd on Jan 6. These 2 events have little in common - in severity or in their consequences.
Many of you are no different than what you despise. Both with excuses and justification for any words or actions of your own side even when wrong and illegal.
You all want to dog pile on me for posting here when you all asked me to. What I said was honest and I call it how I seen it. Yet you don’t have the courage to do the same. There’s no getting around it. You are hypocrites.
You can’t even admit Trump lost an election after many audits and over 70 court case losses. Pathetic.
Do you want to cancel me…woke me?
I asked for comments from the resident liberals ,you responded with your comments and I posted a thumbs up.Dont include me in the name calling.
I just figured that's how it worked...the officer gets shamed and jailed, while the perpetrator gets their name and likeness plastered all over town as a martyr and hero. Soooo, when do we get to beat this cop into submission...or possibly execute him in the streets? You know?...the way your side does it. Your claims of hypocrisy are, wait for it,...hypocritical to say the least.
My understanding is that there were senators/representatives and their families taking shelter in offices beyond that door and they did not have a way to escape. The justice department said the shooting was justified. I'm ok with that as I feel the shooting was justified based on what I see with my own eyes from watching video of the shooting. Based the George Floyd video, there is no way to justify what Derek Chavin did. Full stop.
Curious, why do you want to know the officers name?
By the way, I don't have a side. I condemn the Portland riots, Antifa, and Proud Boys all the same. Those who are (or will be) charged for their actions on January 6th will get their day in court. I'm good with that. If found guilty they should get what they deserve. Those charged for the Portland riot are let off...that is a disgrace. They too should have had their day in court to get what they deserve IMO.

4nols- Did you hear the "F#$K the Blue" in the video? What are your thoughts on what you saw happening in the video?
Rupe- at least I’m not a hypocrite.
Oh ****ing please. You make it sound like they went in "Avon calling" with flash bangs, battering ram, and gas.
"I was able to see the video. I feel the shooting was justified. There appears to be 3-4 armed police officers in tactical gear beyond the barricaded door before the shooting from what I saw. Regardless, she was not following commands and advancing toward police during the act of a crime. "
Let's remember that the next time YOUR side burns down cities when someone is actively resisting arrest, with a weapon and not following commands. Or basically just rioting because they can. See Portland.
And this is about the debacle in 'Stan. As much as you would like it not to be. Like I said, if I elected this current shit show, I'd be looking for distractions as well.
Do you have any experience in law enforcement, we’re you ever in the military, or have ever received a use lethal five brief, or had to adhere to rules of engagement? Have you ever had to to make that decision where either answer could be perceived as wrong?
You leftist got what you wanted! You new that the Biden camp was the same group that hated America. Do not be confused that Susan Rice, and Valerie Jarrett are still calling the shots!
You all take great pride in defending your little band of brothers and see yourselves as intellectual superior to everyone here but then you voting proves that your mentally incompetent when it comes to choosing a president!
This "insurrection" turns out to be just another BS lie, clear to anyone with common sense and open eyes. Just another one of dozens and dozens. And BTW Babbit was UNARMED, exactly what was she going to use to batter down a door? The only thing being "justified" is leftist TDS sufferers justifying lies.
Yeah, worse than 9/11, worse than the Civil War. Greatest threat to America is Trump voters. Many would argue over half the country. Not China, Russia, etc. Hard working people that just want to get back to work and keep the country moving on. People who just want to be left the hell alone. People who value their rights, their freedoms. And hate the hypocrisy, corruption and double standards of the elitist classes making their bid for a takeover.
It's pretty easy to see who the "fascists" and dictators are, the left throwing terms around when they literally don't know the meaning of the words. The influence peddling corruptocrats and establishment hacks. Easy to see for anyone with a lick of honesty and a dash of common sense anyway. They need to be removed from office. Every damn one who's made their millions while in office. That puts Biden right at the top of the list.
But..... My apologies for sliding off into another leftist open sewer.
Please, by all means, lets rejoin the discussion of House Plant's latest greatest FUBAR..... this time Afghanistan. Maybe it's to distract away the debacle and total mess he and his party are STILL currently embroiled in at the southern border. A desperate bid to import democrat/socialist/communist voters as I think they see the way they are rejected by most American CITIZENS. A path to literally destroy the country they see as being in the way of Globalism and a Global Socialist Government. That is were their allegiance lies, not America.
This Afghanistan surrender was no mistake. He's an inept clown, but no one is that inept. It's along the same lines as the southern border mess. Arming the Taliban with billions of dollars in weapons, having to pay for hostages,etc. would seem to be along those lines as well. He was well paid to do what he is doing. He knows he's only in this for a short time..... and he really doesn't care what happens after.
“ Rupe- at least I’m not a hypocrite”
Oh that is rich coming from the biggest hypocrite on Bowsite.

How can a Soldier honor this when the CinC fails to do so! Many people see these as words on paper. I have known and still know many write them upon their heart and live and yes die trying to live up to them!
We need to make a bombing run on all US equipment left behind!
The former VP now POTUS would pick their VP and would have to be approved by House and Senate. If it was a 50-50 in Senate not sure what happens. But does not matter because Mitt would go along with who ever the Kamala picks.
IMO....once the Repubs take over the House and Senate next year with clear majorities, that's when we will see Prez Biden leave. The caveat to that is if the upcoming Durham investigation and report implicates all three Biden's (father, son, brother). We know Durham has been providing more evidence to the grand jury. That could be for the Russia hoax piece of the puzzle. However the scope of Durhams investigation was broadened so we'll see if any of the Biden's get popped.
Here's a hint...they TALK from it too!
I think these are the fighters Ollie North was talking about. I don't think he confirmed it, but I think he is helping those folks out behind the scenes. This is right up his alley.
I cannot believe that they have not shutdown the business as usual and focused on the crisis at hand! You have President and VP talking about campaigning for Governor Newsom! Really, someone needs to question them on their priorities!
My Readers Digest response to that. We're not there yet....if ever.....to have our military take down a sitting U.S. Prez. That is the job of the Congress as part of the Framers checks-n-balances. If any POTUS needs to be removed for legit reasons.....I expect the people to do it thru their elected reps in Congress. If the elected reps won't carry out the will of the folks....then we need to get new reps who will. The folks elect a Prez, the people can remove a Prez thru their reps. If the military took out a sitting U.S Prez....that would be a military coup and we're better than that.
IMO......in these troubled and dire times....folks need to keep a cool head. The calls for Prez Biden to go are now increasing. I'd like to follow the Constitution in this matter.
Stolen elections have even worse consequences.
Of note.....I didn't see VP Harris anywhere.
If Joe hadn’t of bungled this so bad we wouldn’t need a world record airlift and evacuation.
They’re just stooges.
Rupe, that is classic, sorta like bragging about a great job tracking a wounded animal after blowing a twenty yard shot at an animal standing broadside!
“ Germany's Laschet: NATO's 'biggest debacle' Among those who were critical was the head of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), Armin Laschet.
Laschet, who is running to succeed Merkel in national elections next month, said the withdrawal was an embarrassment to the alliance and that lessons needed to be learned. "It is evident that this engagement of the international community was not successful." "It is the biggest debacle that NATO has suffered since its founding, and we're standing before an epochal change."
Chancellor Merkel calling the Taliban’s conquest of the last major parts of Afghanistan over the weekend an, “extremely bitter development. Bitter, dramatic and terrifying.”
Every Allie is lampooning Biden.
World leaders once celebrated President Joe Biden's election. Now, some are claiming that his handling of the U.S. withdrawal from the Asian nation is a major blunder.
U.K., French, German Leaders Blast Biden Over Afghanistan: 'We Thought America Was Back”
Until Sunday, Europe thought Joe Biden was an expert on foreign policy.
Now, the American president’s decision to allow Afghanistan to collapse into the arms of the Taliban has European officials worried he has unwittingly accelerated what his predecessor Donald Trump started: the degradation of the Western alliance and everything it is supposed to stand for in the world.
Across Europe, officials have reacted with a mix of disbelief and a sense of betrayal. Even those who cheered Biden’s election and believed he could ease the recent tensions in the transatlantic relationship said they regarded the withdrawal from Afghanistan as nothing short of a mistake of historic magnitude.
“European leaders dismayed by Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan“
In the British Press, Tom Tugendhat in The Times said the fall of Kabul was the 'biggest foreign policy disaster since Suez'. It’s Biden’s fiasco.
Biden’s Afghanistan Withdrawal a ‘Total Failure of His Presidency’, Says Brexit’s Farage
French President Emmanuel Macron lectured President Joe Biden on the “moral responsibility” their two nations owed to Afghanistan during a call with the president on Thursday.
A readout of the call released by the French included a pointed note of Macron’s message to Biden.
“The head of state emphasized our collective moral responsibility toward the Afghan men and women who need our protection and who share our values,” it read. “We cannot abandon them.”
The United States readout of the call did not include similar rhetoric, noting that both leaders “underscored the importance of continued close coordination among allies and democratic partners on Afghanistan,” and the importance of “humanitarian assistance and support for refugees.”
The hits just keep coming.
But we on the Right told everyone!!!!!
That reads as though someone in the Administration censored/edited what was actually said between Macron and Biden on that call.
I wonder....will carbon dating work on the liberals?
Anyone who didn't know that long ago was willingly blind and stupid. Or did know it..... evil as to the "cause". The leftist media et. al. hid all of it from the public, literally lied FOR him whenever such questions came up. And all need to walk the plank alongside Biden when this all shakes down. It called "accountability"..... a term the left treats like vampires view sunlight.... but will soon be well acquainted with it.
Thanks to the Democrats who have basically installed a fiat administration of little substantive value we are stuck between a rock and a hard place!
I wonder who’s giving the instructions.
Michael Byrd basically sat in his interview and admitted that he shot her in cold blood! He had absolutely no balls, or clue WTF he was doing! Seems to be common theme among Capitol cops lately.
I’ve been in that situation and I didn’t. I found out later that it was a schizophrenic off his meds. I don’t want to know what it’s like to have to live knowing you killed someone. Even if they deserve it.
Then you’re a fool! If that was your child I’m sure you’d think differently.
KS, that hilarious coming from the defund the police party.
Classic leftist tactic, it is like using Religion against conservatives!
We’ve been under their rule for some time actually. Has anyone here elected someone to the Council of Foreign Relations, which contains members of BOTH parties? To bring a world to order. Most thought the reset was just financially, but emotionally, electronically, physical well being(???) or governance, dictatorially, and militarily. Folks this wasnt just a stupid decision. It was thought of months maybe a couple years ago. Better to be thought a dumbass mistake prone president- and living, than a Treasonist ba&$#@rd and hanging until your ribs feed the birds. Read up on the great Reset.
I think that is very correct. The General said yesterday he can guarantee there are no American military folks in AFG. I suspect that is an inaccurate statement or the GEN doesn't know about any covert ops already in place.
