Stories move quickly when a new scandal breaks, even faster when the whole world seems to be involved or is watching very closely. The obscene incompetence of Joseph Biden is on full display as the world watches intently, Afghanistan burns, and we still know very little factual information of the situational intelligence coming out on this story.
And so much is crossing the news lines, airwaves and online blogs that whatever we write at this moment will be out of date before it can be published, but since this is more of an opinion piece, absolute up to date information may not be extremely important – so hang on folks, here we go ---
While some reporters are doing all they can to help cover for the gross incompetence of the Biden regime, even people at CNN are saying that while the Taliban is chanting ‘Death to America’, they feel they are still “friendly” as noted in a number of different news stories. MSNBC mentioned that Biden is “the face of the failure of the withdrawal” as told in many other articles. So the shine is wearing off it seems, and even Ryan Crocker, Obama’s former ambassador to Afghanistan, said “We’re going to pay for that for a long time to come, and that’s why it is insane – just idiotic – to think that we can tell the Taliban that if they don’t stop taking over territory and play nice, the international community will withhold recognition and support,” he said.
“The Taliban really doesn’t care, because they’ve got something far more valuable” as reported in the Breitbart storyObama’s Former Ambassador to Afghanistan: I Question Biden’s ‘Ability to Lead Our Nation’ while also saying that “I think the direction was predictable; the trajectory was not,” he said. “What President Biden has done is to embrace the Afghan policy of President Trump, and this is the outcome.” That claim is a total lie, leave there yes, but not in a disorderly way as was done. President Trump had a carefully planned system to build strength and peace as we left, not just haphazardly take off leaving all of our very expensive war equipment and military bases for the enemy to just grab have. It seems as if it was something planned out by Obama to arm the evil Muzlim terrorists, doesn’t it?
Yes, those comments seem at odds with each other, and there are major lies at the center of his assertions. He fails to realize that what Biden did was NOT what President Trump had planned, nor any other competent military commander in the Pentagon, but at least he showed serious concerns about Biden’s competence to lead this nation; “I’m left with some grave questions in my mind about his ability to lead our nation as commander-in-chief,” Crocker said. “To have read this so wrong – or, even worse, to have understood what was likely to happen and not care.”
I agree with him on that.
Another left wing publication, the Washington Post, printed what their White House correspondent Anne Gearan said on August 15th that Biden wanted to get out of Afghanistan so badly that did not listen to the Pentagon. The Daily Caller story on it said“Anne, what’s the divide? Clearly a divide between the Pentagon and the president,” host Chuck Todd began.
“Do you expect this to have long-term fallout between the White House and the Pentagon?” Todd asked, adding, “And I think the Pentagon is whispering, ‘We didn’t want to do it.'”
“They didn’t want to do it,” Gearan replied, saying that Biden’s relationship with the top generals had not been the best from the very beginning.
“Biden took office very skeptical of the generals, as he likes to call them, for exactly the point you make,” Gearan continued. “He thinks Obama got jammed — that’s his word — during the surge and he was determined not to be jammed himself.”
He appears to be complaining about those generals that Obama had put into place, the pro NWO, anti-American misfits that push homosexual deviants as prime military candidates and the Satanic critical race theory of slavery and poverty, let alone pay for their “sex change” operations. As a side note, the “US Embassy in Kabul Was Celebrating Pride Month as Taliban Launched Final Campaign to Retake Country” reads a Gateway Pundit article.
National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said Monday morning said that the fall of Afghanistan “unfolded at unexpected speed” and that “Biden, Sullivan said, stands by his decision to withdraw U.S. troops. Presumably, exactly the way he withdrew them — as if it was a singular decision. It was not. Nor should it have been.
From retired 4-Star Gen. Jack Keane to Mike Pompeo, former CIA Director and Secretary of State under Donald Trump, and CNN’s Jake Tapper, of all people, Biden has been skewered non-stop for three days and counting for his irresponsible, haphazard, seemingly plan-less, jerking of U.S. forces out of a war-torn “country” (collection of provinces) in which the United States has spent nearly $1 trillion dollars and suffered nearly 2,500 military fatalities over the past 20 years.
Yet, just like that — everything went “poof.” Everything.
“It didn’t have to be this way,” has become the consensus phrase to pass judgment — yes, pass judgment, and harshly so— on what has happened. “Biden’s Saigon” has become reality.
Yet the most incompetent and out-of-touch president of the United States in at least modern history “stands by his decision.” It was never about leaving Afghanistan, Joe — it was always about how we leave.”
Continuing on with portions of the Red State article covering the matter, they reported that Fox News said “The president did not think it was inevitable that the Taliban were going to take control of Afghanistan. He thought the Afghan national security forces could step up and fight because we spent 20 years, tens of billions of dollars, training them, giving them the best equipment, giving them support of U.S. forces for 20 years” and “When push came to shove, they decided not to step up and fight for their country.” [Which Sullivan said forced Biden to decide whether U.S. men and women should be] “put in the middle of another country’s civil war when their own army won’t fight to defend them.”
On Twitter, Joe said“It's hard to believe this has to be said, but unlike this president, I’ll do my job and take responsibility. I won’t blame others. And I’ll never forget that the job isn’t about me — it’s about you.” On June 4, 2020. Of course, he immediately blamed President Trump.
Axios noted that “Biden blamed his predecessor, former President Trump, for empowering the Taliban and leaving them "in the strongest position militarily since 2001." Trump responded with a statement blaming Biden for the situation unfolding in Afghanistan.” But did Joe follow the Trump plan for leaving the perma-war of Afghanistan?
No – not at all. It is all Joes doing. He claimed that we would never see helicopters saving people from off the roof of our Embassy, but that is exactly what we did see.
“Speaking with the Military Times, Larry Chambers, who served as a skipper on the aircraft carrier Midway during the fall of Saigon, said that while the two situations are strikingly similar, they are different in one key respect: Kabul is much, much worse.
“To be perfectly honest with you, what is happening now is worse than what happened in Vietnam,” Chambers told the outlet.
During Saigon’s final days, armadas of helicopters were seen swooping across the sky as U.S. forces airlifted thousands of refugees and American allies off the coast to safety, most of them packed to maximum capacity in the effort to save as many as possible. Over on the USS Midway, Chambers recalled how quickly the deck filled to the brim with choppers and desperate refugees. The situation eventually became so dire that U.S. servicemen infamously began pushing thousands of dollars worth of equipment into the sea to make room…..
While the memory of Saigon certainly haunts Chambers, he believes the fall of Kabul is a far worse situation for several reasons: the abruptness of U.S. withdrawal, Kabul’s distance from the ocean, and the Taliban’s undisputed brutality.
“Of course it’s worse than Saigon,” he said. “We tried to get out as many people who worked with us as we could,” he said Sunday. “Did we do a good job? Who knows? I do not know what [the Taliban is] going to do, but whatever it is not going to be pretty [sic].”
“We made a promise to those folks that we would rescue them, and we didn’t,” Chambers added. “In Afghanistan, we are abandoning the folks who supported us while we were there.” The Breitbart story said, and continued ““Mr. President, some Vietnamese veterans see echoes of their experience in this withdrawal in Afghanistan. Do you see any parallels between this withdrawal and what happened in Vietnam?” Biden was asked on July 8.
“None whatsoever,” Biden replied. “Zero. What you had is you had entire brigades breaking through the gates of our embassy — six, if I’m not mistaken. The Taliban is not the South — the North Vietnamese army. They’re not — they’re not remotely comparable in terms of capability. There’s going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy in the — of the United States from Afghanistan. It is not at all comparable.”
On Sunday, reports indicated that thousands of Americans, not to mention Afghan allies, are currently stranded in Afghanistan as the Taliban continues to take control of cities, highways, and thoroughfares.”
Also, they are being slaughtered as fast as the Taliban can find them.
But some did make it out in time, even days early when they had specific knowledge. “The Russian embassy in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, claimed on Monday that former President Ashraf Ghani had fled the country with four cars and a helicopter stuffed with cash.”Breitbart said and “The embassy alleged that Ghani attempted to smuggle so much money into his helicopter that it did not physically fit into the air frame, according to Russian news agency Tass.…. “As for the reasons of the collapse of the regime, they are characterized by how Ghani fled the country,” an unnamed Russian embassy employee told Tass on Monday. “Four cars were packed with money, and they tried to cram another bag of cash into the helicopter. Not all the cash managed to squeeze in, and some of the money was left lying on the airfield.”
They are not the only ones we ‘disappeared’ on, bailed out on, our “allies” are also sitting in that hellhole trying to figure out what happened. Again, let’s use another leftist rag for our quotes, the Washington Post, to get an idea how they feel about us right now;
“LONDON — The Taliban's stunningly swift advances across Afghanistan have sparked global alarm, reviving doubts about the credibility of U.S. foreign policy promises and drawing harsh criticisms even from some of the United States' closest allies.
As Taliban fighters entered Kabul and the United States scrambled to evacuate its citizens, concerns grew that the unfolding chaos could create a haven for terrorists, unleash a major humanitarian disaster and trigger a new refugee exodus.
U.S. allies complain that they were not fully consulted on a policy decision that potentially puts their own national security interests at risk — in contravention of President Biden's promises to recommit to global engagement.” …. “Britain has voiced some of the bluntest criticisms of the pullout, which is unusual for a country that regards itself as the United States' closest ally. Britain made the biggest contribution to the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan and suffered the highest number of casualties after the United States.”
The credibility of the USA is in very serious doubt around the world, and this humiliating failure of the Marxist regime infesting our nation is putting us in a very susceptible position for real trouble in the near future. I suppose this is what was meant when CNN said“The Adults are Back in Charge” ---- yeh, right, the “adult” competence is breathtaking, isn’t it? America is in chaos.
Early Monday afternoon, Joe finally had something to say about his disastrous Afghanistan murderous blunder. “I stand firmly behind my decision” he mumbled Monday afternoon in a totally failed step to slow the massive criticism of his gross obscene incompetence. “I’m clear on my answer. I will not repeat the mistakes we’ve made in the past” he mumbled, forgetting his claim that helicopters would not be saving our personnel from the Embassies rooftop, as they indeed did anyway.
While Kamala Harris only had to say something about getting your shot – what a useless chunk of flesh that thing is.
“Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a CNN interview on Sunday that the administration of President Joe Biden “can work with and recognize” a Taliban government in Afghanistan that respects women and “doesn’t harbor terrorists”” wrote Frances Martel of Breitbart, forgetting, I suppose, that the Taliban IS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. “Reports on Monday indicate that governments allied with the United States, not just its adversaries, are pursuing talks with the Taliban. British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said the United Kingdom is using an intermediary to discuss a potential pathway for London to recognize the Taliban, reports indicated Monday.” As are Russia and China.
Speaking of a “peaceful” terrorist takeover, the Geller Report headline said it well – “Biden Blasted For Destroying America’s Reputation as World Watches Taliban’s Sick Slaughter Rampage” and mentioned that “The incompetent Biden Administration has destroyed America’s credibility and deterrence in just a little over 7 months. This is why the stability of the world is in a freefall. However, this was entirely predictable. The Biden Administration’s foreign policy team … is made up of Obama-era figures, whose policies totally destabilized the Middle East during the Obama years. What is in store for the world during the next 3.5 years?”
Saturday the state Department claimed ““Tomorrow and over the coming days, we will be transferring out of the country thousands of American citizens who have been resident in Afghanistan, as well as locally employed staff of the U.S. mission in Kabul and their families and other particularly vulnerable Afghan nationals,”they said in the statement.” That did NOT happen, they are still stuck there, and I wonder how many will even survive. There are rumors that the USAF had B52’s bombing areas there and that streets are full of dead bodies. I have not found confirmations yet, but we do know that those bombers were over Afghanistan.

But no need to worry about a thing, all is going well. We know this because the Taliban told us so, and would they lie to us? “Taliban: ‘Islamic law will come not to just Afghanistan, but all over the world. Jihad will not end until last day.’” Reads the headline in Jihad Watch this past Saturday, and this linked Twitter video proves they are planning on just that;
Ron Paul had a very interesting note on the fall of Afghanistan when he said “The rush is on now to find somebody to blame for the chaos in Afghanistan. Many of the “experts” doing the finger-pointing are the ones most to blame. Politicians and pundits who played cheerleader for this war for two decades are now rushing to blame President Biden for finally getting the US out. Where were they when succeeding presidents continued to add troops and expand the mission in Afghanistan?
The US war on Afghanistan was not lost yesterday in Kabul. It was lost the moment it shifted from a limited mission to apprehend those who planned the attack on 9/11 to an exercise in regime change and nation-building” but neglected to mention that 9/11 was an inside job. I also disagree with his initial statement, because Joe IS the one to blame for the current chaos there, but he is correct in the fact that we NEVER should have been there, let the Afghans produce and protect their own poppy fields.
“Biden’s presidency is officially over. He has no legitimacy on the world stage. He has no moral authority. Voters will never again trust his judgment. Everything a president requires to lead Biden has squandered” said John Nolte of Breitbart, “What we are witnessing today is the end of Joe Biden’s presidency… Afghanistan was merely the last straw…” and continues on to list some of the other major incompetence’s he has committed the last seven months. I pray that this is the end of this insane fiasco afflicting this nation, and that he is somehow removed from his “office” in this criminal regime infesting our Nations capitol.
There are already many calls for his resignation, and they can only get stronger as things develop. GOP Representative Van Drew said““My God, it is one of the darkest, most embarrassing days we’ve had in our country, and it’s a tremendous embarrassment for the Biden administration,” Van Drew declared. “You know, every day I wake up as a congressman … and you wonder what is going to be next, but with this administration, it is failure, after failure, after failure. Honest to God, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I am. It literally is time for this president to resign. It is time for this vice president to resign. It is time for the Senate president and our speaker to resign. We need new people — even new Democrats, hopefully, that are moderates. We can’t keep doing this. It has been about seven months, and this is the worst of all. This is the real topper. I mean, people that we trusted and worked with there are going to be killed. They are going to be tortured. They’re going to be hurt. Women are going to be raped. People are going to be beheaded. This is was not an exit strategy that made any sense, and in no way it should have been a conditional exit strategy. In no way should this have been done.””
Lets end this episode of a continuing and worsening saga with this video.
