If anything this will be remembered in history as being the single worst failure in a string of failures, by a failed Senator who somehow succeeded to become "president."
I noticed that you didn't challenge anything I said in my originating report.

What did you say in your originating report? Obviously there must have been a problem in the presentation.

The war isn't over until the military acts, arrests Biden and the entire deep state, tries them all for treason and executes the bastards.

After 20 years, 6,294 dead Americans, over 20,000 wounded, and $2 trillion the Afghan War is finally over, and it involved the largest airlift in American history. It was estimated in July that 70,000 Afghans would have to be evacuated (see post above). 122,000 people were evacuated, 6,000 of which were Americans.

President Obama wanted to end the war in Afghanistan. He failed.

President Trump wanted to end the war in Afghanistan. He failed.

President Biden wanted to end the war in Afghanistan. Biden succeeded.

USA Today reports, "The final U.S. troops in Afghanistan flew out of Kabul Monday at 3:29 p.m. EDT, ending a costly 20-year occupation that started after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and leaving a war-torn country now run by the Taliban.

"The withdrawal, announced by the Pentagon, came one minute before Aug. 31 Kabul time, keeping the U.S. in the country right up until a deadline set by President Joe Biden's administration."

“Now, our 20-year military presence in Afghanistan has ended," Biden said in a statement, calling it the "unanimous recommendation of the Joint Chiefs and of all of our commanders on the ground to end our airlift mission as planned."

The sudden surrender by the Afghan army complicated matters for Biden as did an Afghan suicide bomber who murdered thirteen Americans and 170 Afghans.

USA Today continued, "The pullout capped a chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops that was upended after the Taliban quickly took over the Afghan government this month. It turned deadly when a terrorist attack killed 13 U.S. service members and more than 160 Afghan civilians on Thursday as the U.S. scrambled to evacuate Americans and Afghan allies in the final days."

"Tonight's withdrawal signifies both the end of the military component of the evacuation, but also the end of the nearly 20-year mission that began in Afghanistan shortly after September 11, 2001." said Maj. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr.

While 6,000 Americans were able to get out, apparently 250 didn't get the memo. They are still in Afghanistan and, supposedly, they want out. Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken promises to work with the Taliban to get those Americans and others out. There is an economic advantage for the Taliban to work with the U.S. and its allies. The Taliban needs us more than we need them.

President Biden deserves a pat on the back for a job well done.
The the TALIBAN WON. Thanks Democrats for giving the world another Islamic Theocracy.

Gove yourselves a nice pat on the back

Three previous Presidents could not get us out of Afghanistan.

President Biden did and the cacophony of criticism and Monday morning quarterbacking continues.

6,000 Americans were evacuated in the largest airlift in American history. 100 to 200 Americans remain in Afghanistan for various reasons that are beyond the scope of the President's responsibility. Instead of praising our President for the 97% of Americans he brought to safety, the media and his critics concentrate on the 3% who didn't get the memo.

After 20 years, 6,294 dead Americans, over 20,000 wounded, and $2 trillion the Afghan War is finally over, and it involved the largest airlift in American history. It was estimated in July that 70,000 Afghans would have to be evacuated (see post above). 122,000 people were evacuated, 6,000 of which were Americans.
What is interesting is that Republicans are not questioning what I have said, as they continue with their source-less, malicious criticism of Biden.

Thus nearly all of their comments are meaningless.

Faux Xiden just became the biggest provider or weapons to terrorists in The World surpassing the traitorous Obama Bin Lying. This will be the beginning of WWIII. Add this to the Nukes Obama and Biden and Clinton helped Iran get, and the Billions Obama gave Iran to buy Weapons from Russia, and you have the world on the verge of Ezekiel 38.

But no anti-aircraft weapons.

They might as well be throwing stones.

That implies you wanted this war to continue until we defeated the Taliban. You can't have it both ways.

Biden succeeded.

Yes, the Taliban won, but what did they win? A worthless, forlorn country Western democracies couldn't wait to abandon. A country whose inhabitants will become a burden on other countries as 75% of starving, impoverished Afghans want out.

Why are you upset because our President got us out of there after 20 years, over 6,000 dead, and a cost of $2 trillion?

Republicans are not making much sense.

We occupied their country for 20 years and left when we chose to leave.

Yet you say "The Taliban Won"?

Are you truly that stupid?

When the Taliban occupies the USA for 20 years, then I'll agree that they won.

A State Department spokesman would not comment specifically about a current MANPADS threat, but said the U.S. is “seriously concerned about reports of Taliban seizures of Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) military equipment… and is… doing all that we can to ensure the safety of our implementing partners and their facilities.”

Huge haul

The Taliban have captured huge stocks of U.S. weapons, including tanks, aircraft and drones, Reuters and other news organizations have reported. One official said “the Taliban are believed to control more than 2,000 armored vehicles, including U.S. Humvees, and up to 40 aircraft potentially including UH-60 Black Hawks, scout attack helicopters, and ScanEagle military drones.” According to The Intercept, the insurgents also seized abandoned handheld biometric devices used to verify the identity of Afghans working for the U.S. that contain “iris scans and fingerprints, as well as biographical information, and are used to access large centralized databases. “It’s unclear,” The Intercept said, “how much of the U.S. military’s biometric database on the Afghan population has been compromised.”

Over there
Former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called for the removal of orphaned children from Afghanistan to the United States.
Given that she is one of the architects of the war in Afghanistan, it turns out to be a great example of American humanism - first make orphans, and then save them.

If you actually read the article you would have read:

"Man-portable air defense systems—acquired by successive Kabul regimes going back decades. It’s highly unlikely that Washington supplied any to Kabul, experts explained. Any left today likely represent a fraction of those acquired by the Taliban regime overthrown by the U.S. in 2001, or its predecessors."

Not much of a threat...but please...try again!

Tell the gay men that The Taliban are now hanging from American Apache Helicopters that The Taliban are not "much of a threat" to their own countrymen, and surrounding nations.

Tell that to all of the Afghani men and women who helped the US rebuild schools and roads and bring fresh water to communities, and helped to educate women that are now being hunted down like dogs that "The Taliban is not much of a threat"

Don't you have a goat to sacrifice to Satan or something today to honor Faux Xiden?

There is no proof that the Taliban are committing any atrocities.

If you have proof, please post the link. The world would want to know, otherwise STFU!

Why would I want to sacrifice a goat? I like a good barbecue like everyone else, but I prefer beef.

You do realize that animal sacrifices in pagan ceremonies were just barbecue preceding by some religious jerk (like yourself) trying to aggrandize himself by making it a religious ceremony, right?

Satan wasn't even a pagan god...he was a figure from the Jewish (not much) and Christian Bibles. Nobody ever "sacrificed" anything to Satan....that's just in your perverse imagination.

For about the 10th time on this forum, Biden is NOT and never will be subject to a military court. Read your f-ing Constitution, retard!

Why do you lie? Is it pathological?

Biden succeeded in getting 13 troops killed and another couple dozen injured.

None of those weapons provide any anti-aircraft capability.

The most threatening one is the A-29 Super Tucano

It isn't even a jet - it's propeller driven.

It's the pride of the mighty Brazilian air force.
The Super Tucano is a turboprop, therefore it is jet-powered.

So that is why there are pictures in the media of Taliban fighters carrying Stingers?
