the fall of Kabul

Biden says it is all Trumps fault because he made a crappy agreement with the Taliban ..... Biden did not seem troubled to stop or change other Trump 'crappy' agreements.

Taliban should be sent to the home of George Bush and Dick Chaney and let them have 20 years of pay back with there family's, starting with Liz and Bush daughters. I think then they should visit Barry and Mike Obama at Marta's Vineyard.

All Trump did was set a future deadline for withdrawal. Deadlines such as this have always been treated as goal standards...subject to change.
Biden is 100% responsible, he ignored the current conditions there, and simply made a stupid decision to completely withdrawal. Trump has and always will be blamed for all of Joe's ridiculous decisions. People all know this in advance now, so its no surprise anymore.

Trump had a goal.
Biden implemented a strategy.

That strategy definitely belongs in this compilation....

Itís not Biden.
Itís not Trump either.
Afghanistan is just impossible.
We spent 20 years building up the Afghan military. They outnumber the Taliban 350,000 to 75,000. They have an elite commando force; the Taliban has no none.
They have an Air Force; the Taliban does not.

Yet, within weeks of the US ceasing military operations-before we even had the chance to withdraw all our forces-the Taliban has taken over. And apparently with little resistance. Why?

Just as we equipped the ARVN who gave up easily, the Afghans are doing the same. We can't do more for them than they are willing to do for themselves.

"Pashtun tribesmen, shooting at us with our own guns, as we run away."

The GOAT sums it all up in that one brief sentence.

This is the Biden Administration at its best.

You and I don't agree on anything except this. These special forces didn't even fight the Taliban for Kabul. WHY? The big question is what comes next. Does these special forces and others form militias and fight a guerilla warfare or do they flee the country, or do they accept a brutal Taliban regime. What is our next move? Do we give a big f**k you to Afghanistan and whatever happens happens or do we bomb the Taliban in perpetuity and kill them one by one. Afghan president Ghani knew they weren't going to fight for Kabul that is why he fled. Twenty years the American people were lied to by Bush, Obama, Trump, Biden, Congress, our military, the CIA and every other group that was involved in this nation building fiasco. We, the American people demand answers!

We should not have been there 20 years period, seeing the Russians scoot with their tails between their legs was the tell. What is the country's product, poppy plants? Let the Taliban flock to it then Napalm everything, forget targeted anything. But do it when least expected with followup treatments.

I hope Clarissa makes it out of there before she is made a 'Taliban fighter wife', although they seem to like them young like Joe.

"Chris Wallace is a joke; only reason I'm watching this is because of his guest."

"Chris Wallace is definitely part of what's wrong with America."

"Pompeo deserves a medal for answering Wallace's questions so respectfully. Wallace spent the majority of his questions on Trump's policies instead of Biden's failures. Typical."

"ďNever underestimate Joeís ability to f*ck things upĒ. Barry Obama" (an understatement)

"The Biden administration is destroying everything they touch."

THIS is what leadership looks like > > >Mike Pompeo. We, for the sake of our county, NEED the Trump administration back!
