Biden's botched Afghanistan exit is a disaster at home and abroad long in the making

You guys are literally calling the Americans stuck in Afghanistan “stupid”.
 

Your entire premise that they should have gotten out in advance but didn’t, so it’s their fault for not knowing, ignores the fact that BIDEN didnt know either. Presumably because no one “told” him. So who is more stupid for that? The translator working in Afghanistan for the US? Or the Commander in Chief of the United States of America? Or how about the people who continue to support American-abandoning Biden?
 

 

That was his July 8 speech on Afghanistan. 

Read the whole thing here...

A lot of promises. Some yet to be kept.

I thought we were fighting them there  to protect the Homeland,. Now we’re flying them in?  That will provide the Security State all the reason it needs to further restrict our civil liberties

I think most have been offloaded at foreign bases. I heard Ramstein is a tent city of refugees.

All will be fine, nothing to worry about.    Idiot biden doesn't know what he is talking about.

Biden didn’t just blink in the face of terror. He is groveling before the Taliban, acknowledging their victory and laying the groundwork for their legitimacy as the rulers of Afghanistan.

Who could imagine any American president allowing murderous thugs to set the terms of our military’s surrender? But that’s what has been happening and it crystalized Tuesday. 

The Taliban declared that no more Afghans should go to the Kabul airport, that those already there should leave and then they shut the main airport road. For all practical purposes, those words and actions ended the mercy mission of getting our ­allies out. 

And Biden didn’t object. Not even a whimper, just silent ­acceptance.

When the Taliban announced that the  31st was a “red lime” and that any extension beyond it would “provoke a reaction” Joe just took it like a chump. A bunch of 8th century sheep herders are going to trash talk the most powerful country in the world and take our people hostage? The correct response from Biden would have been “or what?” What are you gonna do about it?
 

I think Biden should have done some air strikes just for the Taliban saying that.

I think it comes down to this...

Biden has said the buck stops with him.

He's been Commander in Chief for 7 months.

He chose to believe the analysts that said the Taliban would not take over quickly. He's on record saying such.

He was wrong, and people, US citizens, are now stuck behind unfriendly lines.

All facts. He owns this.

If Trump wasn't even less competent he could really make capital out of this.

Suicide bomber attacks Kabul airport after ISIS threat: US Marines injured and Afghans 'dead' in blast at hotel where Westerners were holed up before evacuation flights

Crenshaw opined on Fox that Biden should authorize a mission to extract American and those who helped us.

Two suicide bombers now?

13 dead including children and US soldiers. 60+ injured, Biden, just go man, sod off somewhere else, you`re not wanted.

From what I’ve heard there is only one runway at this airport. The allied evacuation efforts could be completely scuttled with just a couple of mortar rounds.

UK is considering withdrawing its troops immediately.

Worse is coming on 31st.

They are  not stupid. They were probably in better position to know than people in DC. Like all Americans, they are free to choose, and like all people have to deal with the consequences of choice.   Some are embassy and other US  personnel that are civilians and have vital jobs until the last American is out.  Some are those WOKE individuals working for NGO's trying to fight for social justice in Afghanistan.  They haven't left because of their personal commitments. 

If they can't make it to the airport, they may have to be extracted another way.  Certainly you don't believe that all military plans and all negotiations are reported by FOX and CNN in up to the minute detail.  But in the end, all heroics outside of movies have limitations.  Some will not make it and may be killed or used as hostages.  We will see.

OTOHThe base could be disabled by simply destroying the runway

A day ago, there were 15k+ Americans that still couldn’t get to the airport and this was the biggest debacle in history.  Today, there are about 1500 Americans behind the lines and Bidet is responsible for the greatest airlift in history.  ??  Something not right.  Too much spin, not even reasonable.  And the Administration is trying to blame those Americans still left.  That is the ultimate in cowardice.  9/11 is coming up.  I’d hate to see some 3000 bound Americans brought onto the tarmac, lined up and at the signal, all are beheaded at the same time.  Reminiscent of what Saladin did to the Crusaders.

Too late now, might result in more casualties.
