Last U.S. Troops Leave Afghanistan: “We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out”

Last U.S. Troops Leave Afghanistan: “We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out”

“Tonight’s withdrawal signifies both the end of the military component of the evacuation, but also the end of the nearly 20 year mission that began in Afghanistan shortly after Sept. 11, 2001.”

A plane carrying the last of the U.S. troops in Afghanistan departed Kabul at 3:39 PM ET.

Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth McKenzie said: “Tonight’s withdrawal signifies both the end of the military component of the evacuation, but also the end of the nearly 20 year mission that began in Afghanistan shortly after Sept. 11, 2001.”

But is the war over? We still have Americans in Afghanistan along with numerous allies.

Insanity. Treating people like mere slaves.

Oh, wait:

Biden calls Black adviser ‘boy’ during FEMA briefing:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/biden-calls-black-adviser-boy-during-fema-briefing/ar-AANUmWT?ocid=msedgntp

The 9/11 Muslim terrorist attack anniversary is approaching, allowing us to contemplate the tragic irony and criminal negligence — borderline treasonous, in my opinion — of Xi-den and the Dhimmi-crats gifting al-Qaeda, the Taliban and basically every Muslim terrorist outfit in the world with close to $100 billion of U.S.-made and taxpayer-funded weapons and materiel.

Did anyone ever foresee that, twenty years after the 9/11 Muslim terrorist attacks, the U.S. would reward Muslim terrorists with nearly $100 billion worth of weaponry, for these goose-stepping thugs to trade on the open market and to use in support of their wanton violence, oppression and barbarism? It boggles the mind, the self-defeating stupidity on display. The Dhimmi-crats might as well write checks drawn on the U.S. Treasury, to mail directly to these thugs.

When the vile Dhimmi-crats are empowered, innocent people die. It’s really that simple. I’m sure that all of Xi-den’s, narcissistic, virtue-signaling, yard sign-planting supporters are so pleased with the death and destruction that they’ve wrought.

    “Did anyone ever foresee that, twenty years after the 9/11 Muslim terrorist attacks, the U.S. would reward Muslim terrorists with nearly $100 billion worth of weaponry,….”

    Of COURSE they did: it was INTENTIONAL! The only thing they screwed-up was in the execution of the delivery – the how-to. And blow it they did.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Biden and the Taliban orchestrate a very public return of a few (trapped) Americans on the anniversary of 9/11. Part of the deal made months ago.

    After all, what Biden wanted most out of the withdrawal was a 9/11 photo-opp.

I wonder if the vile Dhimmi-crats who voted for Xi-den will bother to turn their attention away from their Amazon Prime, NetFlix, Disney Plus, etc., streaming videos, to watch the slew of hostage beheading videos and other assorted footage of atrocities that the Muslim terrorists running Afghanistan are sure to implement as regularly scheduled programming, with the same regularity that such events appeared during the tenure of narcissist-incompetent, Obama.

We should never have gotten ourselves stuck in the Afghanistan quagmire twenty years ago. But they are many Presidents to blame for staying there. I’m happy we are out, but not happy about the way we left. I don’t think we could have botched our exit any worse than we did. Leaving our citizens and support behind is as inexcusable as giving the Taliban our state of the art weapons. Many people in this Adminstration should feel the consequences of their bad decisions with a swift kick out the door, including the President.

    “a swift kick out the door, including the President”

    I’m thinking a long drop with a sudden stop would be more appropriate. The trial should be short since they’re committing treason right out in the open.

      NotSoFriendlyGrizzly in reply to NotSoFriendlyGrizzly. | August 30, 2021 at 6:20 pm

      You know, after due consideration, I have changed my mind. Instead, we should load them all onto Air Force One, give them a luxurious experience flying across the pond, and drop them in Kabul. Give them a scout knife, canteen of water, and then fly as many Americans and Afghani allies out as can fit on AFO. No Secret Service or Military detail. Let them then try to find their own way out.

        A Libyan Affair. Karmic irony.

        Like a proposal some years ago by a law enforcement officers, take all the criminals rightly convicted medically blind them in both eyes, have a piece of land large enough to hold millions, and leave them to fight for survival as they will all be blind, NO HELPERS ALLOWED! The Blind Land, all criminals welcome! Political Pimps are ESPECIALLY welcome!

    It wasn’t a “quagmire”. The Taliban et al and empathetic allies had been pushed out of domesticated spaces. The question is what changed (e.g. an unconditional knee) in the last three trimesters to offer them hope and nurture their ambitions. The challenge for America is trust in trans-administrative commitments.

Oh F-K
You mean those who “wanted” to get out?

Poor bastards… American is dead

Once again, the terrorists will have a sovereign nation for a base of operations. Training, access to passport and Visa processes. It shouldn’t be too long for attacks on the CONUS to commence again. The terrorists already have congressional representation in place, in Minnesota and Michigan. It used to be a good reason to be in Afghanistan, fighting the enemies of the United States over there, and not here.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Romey. | August 30, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    This brings up a point. Have there been any actual attempts to, ahh, how to put this… “grant early retirement “ to our congressional muslims? I’d not expect anything to be made public of course.

    gran2ten in reply to Romey. | August 31, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    They will not change their motives, their behavior will just be more sophisticated and subtle, their primitive attacks will still happen, but the means to kill food production, corrupt the water system ,disrupt the sewage system, block the energy system, cancel refinery’s; right now refinery’s are on ALERT. etc. they will carry out DEVESTATION LIKE WE’VE NEVER SEEN IN THIS COUNTRY! Mark their words, time is nothing to them, sooner or later it matters not! They believe when Allah wills, naw, they can’t destroy America, bet your sweet bippy they can!

Where are the resignations of those concerned…one Lt Col with balls….who else?

    What has been the retention rate in the enlisted ranks lately?

      NotSoFriendlyGrizzly in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | August 30, 2021 at 6:15 pm

      Anecdotally, not high.

      I personally know 3 Marines, 5 Air Force (including 2 officers), and 1 Navy personnel who said (paraphrasing here), “F**k this s**t” and got out. And my friends have said that they are not alone.

        The Friendly Grizzly in reply to NotSoFriendlyGrizzly. | August 30, 2021 at 6:44 pm

        Kinda figured. Things were crumbling when I was in. The Carter years. Lots of patty-cake, lots of perfumed-prince stuff, and the affirmative action garbage was gaining a lot of traction.

          NotSoFriendlyGrizzly in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | August 30, 2021 at 7:41 pm

          My Friendly Compatriot, this has been going on since the late 80’s (at least). My family was stationed in Germany from the time I was 6 months old until I was 16 years old. I was a part of the Civilian Air Patrol and Law Enforcement Explorer post. Other than growing up on the economy with my German friends, the military (specifically Air Force) was the only “family” I had. I was less than 6 flight hours away from having my solo license.

          My father (who incidentally retired as a SMSGT; 2nd highest rank in the AF) knew of my aspirations as a combat pilot in the AF (G-d I wanted a f**king Warthog!!!) and threatened to *KILL* me if I ever joined the military. He wasn’t kidding either.

          And, looking back over the years, despite how tough my life has been, I have to say that he was right to frighten me off.

It looks like the weapons were a bribe, to allow a reasonably safe exit.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Petrushka. | August 30, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    I will say what I’ve said in other threads: all that weaponry allows an excuse for the next Neocon president to send more of our best breeding stock to be chopped to pieces. Again.

      Yep, our government has the mental sickness, doing the same thing OVER & OVER & OVER AGAIN, EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT! Average American adult has comprehension level of a 5th grader 10-11 year old’s. This is experience level and comprehension the Professional Pimps in government have now!

    I think the gifting of the billions in weaponry to the Taliban was intentional from the get-go.

      Hard to find any other reasonable explanation.

      The Great Afghan Bugout is also The Great Afghan Payoff.

      Similarly, the Obama admin tried to payoff Iran.

      Payoffs are the Obama/Biden way of foreign policy. The same thing is done domestically, too. Payoffs are a defining characteristic of The DC Way. Formerly referred to as The Chicago Way.

“We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out”

Who did you “want” to get out? Americans? Or, more thousands of Muslim males of fighting and reproductive (via rape) age?

The General talks about their sacrifices. Fine. Now talk about what they sacrificed for.

There are at least a dozen Pentagon idiots that should resign or be fired immediately.

At least half the National Security Agencies (“Intel Agencies” with no common sense) staff should resign or be fired.

The last 30 days has been an EPIC failure that directly resulted in deal and injury to dozens of soldiers and scores of civilians.

Our military is a bloated, self-indulgent mess with so much time on their hands that they make social issues a key factor in their training.

All clear-thinking Americans are embarrassed and ashamed at what the woke morons have done to this country. Our Intel Agencies could not find the enemy if the enemy kicked them in the arse.

I told you they were going to abandon them.

I also told you that they were going to refuse to EVER give an actual number of Americans in the country so they could never be nailed down on HOW MANY they were abandoning.

These pathetic cowards are a fucking joke.

Americans trapped in Afghanistan are now, at best, essentially human shields for the Taliban. An insurance policy to be used if America threatens them in any way.

They are for almost all intents and purposes hostages.

If they are allowed to leave it will be a few here and a few there. When the Taliban thinks it needs good press. Or when a demand they have made behind the scenes, that we’ll never know about, is met.

The Dem-media propaganda complex will try to ignore the fact of their existence. They’ll try not to report anything negative about the Taliban, just as they now avoid reporting anything negative about China. The Deep State will do all it can to not link any terrorist attack outside of Afghanistan to the Taliban.

We no longer live in a free and open country. The government and their associated Dem-media propaganda complex is trying to control all information available to “the people”. Any source that dissents will be silenced, if possible, or dismissed and discredited in any and every way possible.

As time goes by they hope you will get used to it and hardly notice. And that ‘right-wing extremists’ will be marginalized and ostracized and ignored.

If you think the GOP will be united and actively opposing and fighting this as a party, guess again.

Except for a few bits of rhetoric here and there the GOP is saying little and doing nothing. Taking the House in 2022 will only slow this ‘fundamental transition’ down a little. Unless the GOP itself fundamentally changes. Or is forced to change by its voting base.

    “Americans trapped in Afghanistan are now, at best, essentially human shields for the Taliban. An insurance policy to be used if America threatens them in any way.”

    You have to love that optimism.

How many 4 Star generals and admirals do we have? I keep seeing new names. The correct number should be a single digit.

What’s really inspiring here is the number of military leaders who were fired or quit because they disagreed with Biden… Oh wait.

What the world needs now is more people who will just do as they are told.

“President Biden in an interview with ABC that aired Thursday (August 19, 2021) said “no one’s being killed” in Afghanistan despite reports of at least seven deaths amid the chaos at Kabul’s airport and of Taliban beating people on their way to the airport, as he defended his handling of the American withdrawal from the country.”

Here are the names of the 13 U.S. service members killed in the Kabul, Afghanistan attack seven days later:
“On August 26, 2021, eleven Marines, one Navy corpsman and one Army soldier were “killed as the result of an enemy attack while supporting non-combatant evacuation operations,” according to a Saturday press release from the Department of Defense, which released the names of the U.S. troops. The names were released 24 hours after families of the deceased were notified.

For the Marine Corps, the deceased are:
Sgt. Johanny Rosario Pichardo, 25; she was from Lawrence, MA
Sgt. Nicole L. Gee, 23; Nicole was from Sacramento, CA
Staff Sgt. Darin T. Hoover, 31, of Salt Lake City, Utah
Cpl. Hunter Lopez, 22, of Indio, CA
Cpl. Daegan W. Page, 23, of Omaha, NE
Cpl. Humberto A. Sanchez, 22, of Logansport, IN
Lance Cpl. David L. Espinoza, 20, of Rio Bravo, TX
Lance Cpl. Jared M. Schmitz, 20, of St. Charles, MO
Lance Cpl. Rylee J. McCollum, 20, of Jackson, WY
Lance Cpl. Dylan R. Merola, 20, of Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Lance Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui, 20, of Norco, CA

For the Navy, the deceased is:
• Navy Corpsman Maxton W. Soviak, 22, of Berlin Heights, OH

For the U.S. Army, the deceased is:
• Staff Sgt. Ryan C. Knauss, 23, of Corryton, TN

“It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”
Thomas Sowell

Actually this is KISS. Ask yourself Who has Joe Biden been since elected in 1972? A LIAR, PLAGIARIZER, AND A BULLY. He displayed his temper again today in his excuse talk of leaving Afghanistan; Aggression, Anger barring his teeth…A BULLY! HE CAN NOT ABIDE ANYONE TO QUESTION HIS JUDGEMENT…NOT EVER! The Chief Bully. Biden displays classic narcissist personality disorder; involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding. This personality type can NEVER TAKE CORRECTION OR ADVICE, MAKES FOR A VERY DANGEROUS LEADER, PRESIDENTIAL SUPREME POWER HAS GONE TO HIS HEAD, HE’S BEHAVING LIKE e.g. “JOE “EL Duce” BIDEN-MUSSOLINI. Correction of this assessment appreciated. Clarity over agreement.
