It's also ironic to me that the people who are suddenly and publicly bemoaning the plight of the Afghans are the same ones who have wanted us out of there for years and who don't want us to accept any refugees. So which is it? We should rescue then but send them to some other country, or what?
Another false choice. Maybe we could use assets we have there to help the situation.
But we surrendered Bagram airbase a month ago.

Biden will be forever remembered as the Prez who had US allies jump from planes....without parachutes. Those images are haunting. They will never be forgotten. A stain on this country's international reputation and credibility.

The image of our allies jumping out of airplanes resonates in Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Iraq, and the Philippines. It emboldens our adversaries, namely China, Russia and Iran. China's message to Taiwan is it's better to capitulate and live rather than depend on the US and jump to your death.

A main criticism of Biden is that he "announced" when we were planning to leave, which everyone said you should never do because it gives the enemy time to plan. Now you are criticizing him for leaving without telling anyone. Which is preferable? Those are the only two ways to leave, so pick one.

There are 50 ways to leave your lover. Biden picked the first one "slip out the back Jack" and ignored the other 49.

According to CNN,
"Biden's defensiveness, imprecision and apparent changes of position hardly project confidence or competence during an extraordinarily sensitive crisis on hostile foreign soil. Anytime a commander in chief does not appear in control or is in denial of obvious developments is a moment that threatens to inflict political damage."

Robert Gates, former defense secretary in the Obama administration, put it this way, Biden has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” Sadly nothing has changed. It is imperative the U.S. safely extricates the U.S. citizens who remain in Afghanistan. There was no reason whatsoever to so badly botch the withdrawal and ignore the sage advice to maintain a residual force. No amount of obfuscating or attempting to blame others will cover this up.

Political affiliation is about fifth on the list of correlating demographics of the unvaccinated.
Look at the states with the worst covid situations right now. Look at the states with the lowest vaccination tastes. Look at the states that are solidly pro-Trump. Report back with your conclusions.

Yes, it's still a challenge to get some minorities vaccinated, because either they distrust the system or in some cases (in inner-city areas particularly) because they simply haven't had time or made time to take off work to do it. There's a big issue with single-family households where the breadwinner is working two or three jobs just to survive and can't spare five minutes, unfortunately.

But for the most part in northern states, enough other people have gotten vaccinated to mitigate that. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about certain other states.

That is so true... look quick over there...a distraction...

Biden "That Was Four Days Ago, Five Days Ago"​

I pray that all US citizens and helpful Afghans can escape this mess createby our inept President. Cannot imagine these families fears. My nephew is there, interpreter.
We are all concerned about those Left Behind in this situation. We pray for your nephew and all others who are at the mercy of a vicious 14th century regime.

Southern border; redux “How do you like me now”? Migrants 10,000; no 12000; wait maybe more and thousands more on the way. Even you leftys must have concern? Yes, no?

The Biden Administration`s only strength is airlifting refugees and hiding them in the US.

One year! Obama said it best”do not underestimate Joe’s ability to eff things up”. Joe continues to fail.

This is a great thread. Remember the helicopters flying from the roof of the US embassy in Kabul? Biden hopes everyone will forget his Afghanistan cluster****
