The debacle of how withdrawal from Afghanistan has been carried out has been an exercise in humiliating the United States, and the lead perpetrators are our own leadership.
Toward the very end of his ordeal, at the airport in Moscow — Sharansky had no idea what was happening to him — he refused to board the plane before they gave him back his Psalm book. In front of photographers, he dropped to the snow, yelling for it. They gave it back to him. Once aboard — when they told him he was being released — he recited the Psalm he had always designated for his liberation day, Psalm 30: “I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.”
The debacle of how withdrawal from Afghanistan has been carried out has been an exercise in humiliating the United States, and the lead perpetrators are our own leadership. After the first 72 hours, I called it The Biden Stain:
What happened the last 72 hours in Afghanistan is a stain on this country that will not wash away anytime soon. It’s Joe Biden’s stain….
The stain, however, is not only on Biden’s legacy, it’s on our nation.
Biden is destroying our national sovereignty, security, and fight against the pandemic by opening the borders, while simultaneously harming our energy independence and economy. He has weaponized the federal law enforcement bureaucracy against political opponents, and turned the military senior officers into political indoctrination and social justice activists. We are only 7 months into the Biden presidency, and the damage is profound and accelerating. It’s hard to imagine what will be in a year or two or three at this pace.
Joe Biden may be an old fool, but what is happening is deliberate.
I also noted, several days ago, that Biden’s Legacy Is Reducing The United States to Groveling
It’s a national humiliation in which we are forced to beg for the mercy of the least merciful people in the globe. Biden’s legacy is reducing the United States to groveling.
Biden also deprived us of our 9/11 memory. The lasting memory of 9/11 was not just the attack, it was the national recovery. By setting 9/11 as the date for all American soldiers to be out of Afghanistan, and carrying it out in a way to debase ourselves, Biden ensured that 9/11 would be both a bitter memory and an annual humiliation.
But it’s not just Biden who is the problem. The senior leadership of the military has lost credibility. And Biden in many ways is a figurehead for a deep-seated Team Obama and progressive visceral dislike of our country, our economic system, and our national pride. They are not troubled in the least by the Kabul capitulation, they engineered it.
I’ve been thinking about Psalm 30 today after the suicide bombing that killed over a dozen America soldiers at the Kabul airport gates.
Our foes will be rejoicing on the upcoming 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack, and for years to come.
Joe Biden hast made our foes to rejoice over us. Unforgivable.DONATE
