Who’s At Fault for Afghanistan’s Swift Collapse? Biden, Our Military Generals, Intelligence Community or All 3
Back on July 7th of this year, the illegitimate ‘Secretary of State’ Tony Blinken, speaking on behalf of the illegitimate Biden regime that should never have been in office in the first place, said this: “We are not withdrawing [from Afghanistan], we are staying, the embassy is staying, our programs are staying… If there is a significant deterioration of security… I don’t think it’s going to be something that happens from a Friday to a Monday.”
That aged well! If you turned off your television on Friday afternoon last week and didn’t turn it on again until Monday morning, you would have been mildly surprised to know that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are now the proud owners of one of the most catastrophic foreign policy disasters in the history of the world.
Setting aside the fact that we should never have gone to Afghanistan in the first place, let’s pause for a moment to laugh at all of the “experts” in the Biden regime. And there are a lot of them to laugh at. Starting with Kamala Harris.
Mrs. Not Willie Brown is having a tough go of it. Her first year as America’s first affirmative action “vice president” isn’t going well. She was promoted to a position way above her capabilities to handle the job. (See her disastrous trips to Guatemala and Mexico, as well her six-months-late visit to the wrong part of the US-Mexico border.) You can’t blame her for being a bit self-defensive and insecure at this point. No one likes her and she keeps getting assigned to crap jobs.
So, when an opportunity presented itself to give herself partial credit for withdrawing from Afghanistan, she took it. Back in April, the Biden regime announced that it had scrapped Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo’s withdrawal plans from Afghanistan. Instead, they’d just be yanking all of the troops out at once and leave billions of dollars of military equipment on the ground there for some reason. Kamala Harris ran to Politico and immediately told them that it was just her and Joe Biden in the room when that idiotic decision was made. Well done, Kamala! You and Joe deserve full credit for what’s going on right now.
And remember back in January of this year, right after the illegitimate swearing-in of Joe Biden? The media told us that “the adults” were back in charge!
Here was the headline in Vogue magazine:
“Joe Biden’s Cabinet Picks Send a Clear Message: The Adults Are Back in Charge!”
This one appeared in the Financial Times:
“The Grown-Ups Are Back in Charge in Washington.”
As for all of that left-behind US military equipment, it’s in two locations today: In the hands of the Taliban, and in the hands of the Iranians. The crack troops of the Afghan security forces who we spent 20 years training drove across the border into Iran with those trucks, armored Humvees and anything else that wasn’t nailed down at the first sight of the Taliban. So now the Taliban and the Iranians have better military equipment in their possession than at any time previously in their history.
Great job, adults who are in charge!
This was always going to be the outcome of America leaving Afghanistan at long last, but at least it would have been less chaotic under Trump and Pompeo’s leadership. Trump was never going to leave billions of dollars’ worth of equipment behind for the Taliban and the Iranians.
While there is plenty of finger-pointing and blame to go around, the biggest failures of this debacle should be pinned on our vaunted “intelligence” agencies. Maybe if they had spent less time over the last five years demonizing Trump voters and cooking up the Russian collusion hoax, they would have noticed that something fairly important was going on in Afghanistan.
The Taliban pre-staged their own governors – complete with full staffs of employees – in every province throughout the country. When the Taliban rolled over the Afghan security forces with ease, those new governors just walked across the street and into their new offices, for a rapid and seamless transition of power. You didn’t see that coming, CIA? Really??
Since there’s never any accountability in Washington, DC, the people who got us into Afghanistan in the first place and then dragged it out for 20 years will never face any consequences. But they should. And we’re not going to forget their names. Too bad about all the Afghan people who are going to get executed now. If the Deep State hadn’t rigged the 2020 election, there would have been a much better outcome in Afghanistan. It wouldn’t have been perfect under Trump and Pompeo, but at least it wouldn’t have been a humiliating American defeat in front of the whole world.
