Is Giving Aid & Comfort to Enemies Like Joe Biden Did the Literal Definition of Treason?
Hey, didn’t there used to be a serious crime under US law that was related to giving “aid and comfort” to an enemy of the United States? What was that crime called? Seems like the media and the Democrat Party were bandying that term about all the time when President Donald Trump was in office, but they weren’t using the term correctly. They accused Trump of committing that crime over a phone call with the Ukrainian president. Oh, right – “Treason!”
Now that we have the accounting of what Joe Biden had the military leave behind in his disastrous Afghanistan pullout, it’s even worse than we thought. Billions of dollars in sophisticated American military equipment is now in the hands of the Taliban. Some of this equipment has already ended up in Pakistan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Some is no doubt headed to Russia and China, which is the greatest concern. Their engineers are probably foaming at the mouth at the opportunity to strip our Blackhawk helicopters and drones apart, so they can reverse-engineer them.
Here’s a look at just some of the material aid that Joe Biden has provided to America’s enemies through his idiocy.
45 UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters; four C-130s; 29 A-29 Tucano ground attack aircraft; 30 military class Cessna’s; 50 MD530G Scout Attack helicopters; and an unspecified number of ScanEagle military drones.
And that’s just the aircraft! Creepy Joe also left more than 2,500 bombs, roughly 10,000 air-to-ground rockets and 9 million rounds of .50 caliber ammunition, making those aircraft and drones presumably even more dangerous. More than 208 military aircraft were left behind for the Taliban, the Iranians, the Russians and the Chinese to wreak havoc with.
The Taliban now have the 26th largest air force in the world, according to the NationMaster list of countries based on size of their air forces. To put that into perspective, a bunch of goatherder terrorists who have been living in caves for the past 20 years now have a bigger and more powerful air force than Canada, Spain, Australia and Hungary. The Taliban “air force” is almost as large as Great Britain’s.
And again: That’s just the military aircraft that Joe Biden materially provided to the Taliban. It gets much scarier when you consider some of the other material aid that Biden provided to a terrorist organization.
Imagine a terror group with 1,394 M203 grenade launchers in their possession, along with 61,000 rounds of ammo for them. Yeah. The Taliban have those now! Along with thousands of mortar rounds, and tons of C-4 explosives, Semtex, detonators, shaped charges, thermite and other types of explosive ordinances. If you think their little dynamite suicide bombs did some damage the other day when 13 US service members and 90 civilians were killed at the Kabul airport, just wait until they start using the stuff that really goes BOOM.
The Taliban and their friends will also be able to see better at night, because Joe Biden left them more than 16,000 pairs of our most sophisticated night vision goggles. And that’s not counting the “Newest Technology Night Vision” rifle scopes that he left them, or the thermal scopes or thermal mono goggles. Oh, and I forgot to mention the Laser Aiming Units that the Taliban now have. Those will be handy when it comes to “painting” ground targets for the Taliban air force to make precision air strikes with all their new bombs.
Biden also handed over the military’s HIIDE system, which stands for Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment. It’s a biometric system to identify people. That will be really useful for the Taliban, since Joe Biden gave them a list of the names of every American and Afghan interpreter stuck behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. Oh, and they’ll be able to cross reference those biometric checks using all of the administration-level encrypted cell phones and laptops – all of which are operational – that Joe Biden left behind for them. Won’t be any stranded Americans sneaking out of the country with fake ID’s, thanks to that quick thinking from Joe Biden!
Joe Biden also left them more than 600,000 small arms, which are a mixture of M16s, M249 SAWs, M24 sniper systems, .50 caliber machineguns, M134 miniguns, 20mm Gatling guns… and tons and tons of ammunition for them.
By every legal definition, Joe Biden committed treason against the United States by allowing this material military aid to fall into the hands of the Taliban and their new friends in China.
