• The hypocrisy of some naive people is just breathtaking. The vast majority of Americans, including the vast majority of Republicans, wanted out of Afghanistan. It's been an expensive boondoggle for many countries and commanders for centuries -- there's a reason it's called "the graveyard of empires." Pulling out was necessary and inevitable, as even the Trumpkins knew, but it was NEVER going to be done easily. The Taliban were NEVER going to abide by any deal we tried to make with them, no matter what little Donnie Trump and his minions thought. The optics are very bad right now, but it actually doesn't matter who's in the White House. They'd be bad regardless. If you don't grasp that, you are not living in the real world.

      You call them "Donnie Trump and his minions" but then run interference for the present administration, implying "it's not their fault" - after all, the "optics would be bad regardless". Biden pulls out and nearly destroys NATO - but it's Trump's fault. Typical Liberal logic.
  • Worse than Hanoi! Anyone knows you don't pull the military out before the civilians. He did have advisors telling him how this is supposed to work, right? He just... what, ignored them? I admit I don't really keep up with it, it sickens me.

      BTW Linda, You said you don't pull the military out before the civilians but the military is still there. Pay attention.

      Linda Joy: "And you have absolutely no right to force your beliefs on others" ____A) Yes I do. Its a pandemic. Your stupidity helps the virus to spread. You should be in jail for telling people to hurt themselves.

      Olivia Troye has gone public with the information that Stephen Miller and others in the administration were doing everything they could to put roadblocks in the way of our Afghan allies being granted refugee status. He didn't want brown people coming to the US. And if you don't want people beheaded, why do you support Trump's release of thousands of Taliban prisoners? Most of those prisoners went straight back to killing once they were released.
  • It was Trump who made the deal with the Taliban. It was Trump who released thousands of Taliban prisoners. How out of touch do you have to be to blame Biden for it?
    • Victorine
      It was a surrender (by us) deal that Trump and Pompeo made, and they were determined to pull out by this past May, assuming he'd won the election. And does anyone with a modicum of brains really think that the Taliban would have abided by any deal Trump made with them? Really?

      Hmm. Biden's entire platform was based on undoing everything Trump did - but he can't "undo" the decision to pull out? Neither Biden nor Kamala has done one thing right since taking office, but Biden is not to blame? Have you been looking through Alice's looking glass?
  • I had not seen any news reports yet verifying your statement. That doesn't mean they aren't going to execute anybody they want to. There is nothing to constrain them at all.
  • I wish they'd come here and hang all of these treasonous leftists! we could keep them busy for a couple of years.
    • Hulk70156
      Charin, Don't try to overthrow the government and then call leftists treasonous. I know you want to act like Trump but Trump is gone. Its time to get a new tape.
  • Looking at your source, you should know better than to believe everything you read in the fake media - and they don't get any faker than CNN.
    • Hulk70156
      1465, Please Post a link to a CNN lie...
    • Hulk70156
      That's what I thought.
  • They aren't. That was American soldiers like Robert Bales doing that. The Emirate of Afghanistan is still getting to grips with the mess the Americans have left them. Only right they kill off traitors and informants of the American empire.
