Big surprise there. The State Department issued a warning today for Americans to get out of Afghanistan. The military we’ve been training there for 20 years and the American taxpayer has been equipping, cuts and runs every time the Taliban is near. They run screaming into the night like 9 year old girls. Just like the Iraqi army did when faced with ISIS. The American taxpayer funds all these boondoggles because some elites in Washington like to play real life Stratego.
Anyone with half a brain could have told you you’re not going to make a silk purse out of a sows ear. You’re not going to make a civilization out of savages. A functioning society out of a death cult. I heard Armstrong & Getty on the radio “but they behead people!” Well yeah, they’re muslims. If you’re worried about that, why have we been best buds with Saudi Arabia for 60 years?
They behead people (and chop off hands and whatnot) all the time. Why the sudden aversion to Afghani’s doing it? Its the same illogical thinking that makes it okay to trade with communist China but not communist Cuba. What the hell?? Principles are one thing a dollar is quite another.
So we spent 20 years in that pisshole and the only shooting that army did was “friendly fire” when they opened up on our own troops. Personally I think the leadership in Washington should be held responsible. I thought we were “the world’s lone superpower”?
