UK Parliament Holds Biden ‘In Contempt’ Over ‘Catastrophic,’ ‘Shameful’ Unilateral U.S. Withdrawal From Afghanistan

UK Parliament Holds Biden ‘In Contempt’ Over ‘Catastrophic,’ ‘Shameful’ Unilateral U.S. Withdrawal From Afghanistan

America’s back.

As the Biden-bungled Afghanistan withdrawal travesty unfolds and questions arise—even at the New York Times—about Biden’s competency, empathy, and honesty, it is worth revisiting the UK Parliament’s decision to hold Biden in contempt.

The brutal assessment of our arguably closest ally adds dimension and depth to the Biden stain and undermines his ridiculous pronouncement that “America is back.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The United Kingdom’s Parliament on Wednesday held President Joe Biden in contempt for his withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, calling the move “catastrophic” and “shameful.”

Members of Parliament, including some who served alongside U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan, accused Biden of “throwing us and everybody else to the fire” with his decision to withdraw. They also attacked Biden for his “shameful” criticism of the Afghan National Army and said it was “dishonourable” to blame Afghanistan’s fighting force for the Taliban’s takeover.

“Those who have never fought for the colours they fly should be careful about criticising those who have,” said Tom Tugendhat, a British Army veteran of the Afghanistan war and the Conservative chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee. Biden is one of only a few U.S. presidents who have not served in the military.

The Telegraph has more:

The interventions mark a deterioration in UK-US relations almost exactly 20 years after Britain joined America in invading Afghanistan to root out terrorism after the September 11 attacks.

. . . . Wednesday’s debate marked the first time Parliament has sat as normal in more than a year, as MPs and peers crammed into the chambers with Covid social distancing rules gone.

Mr Johnson began by arguing that America’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan had forced Britain’s hand, saying it was an “illusion” to think other allies wanted to step in to keep the peace.

“The West could not continue this US-led mission – a mission conceived and executed in support and defence of America – without American logistics, without US air power and without American might,” the Prime Minister said in a clear swipe at Washington.

MPs from all sides of the Commons were forceful in their criticism. Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, said: “The US is, of course, an important ally, but to overlook the fighting of the Afghan troops and forces, and the fact that they have been at the forefront of that fighting in recent years, is wrong.”

Biden did not consult with–or even inform–our allies prior to executing his unilateral and catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan, and reports indicate that Biden refused to take repeated calls from our allies, including those spanning some 36-hours after the fall of Kabul by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Meanwhile, and I cannot emphasize this enough, Team Biden honestly believes that the polls showing support for an end to war in Afghanistan, where no U.S. military member has died in eighteen months due to our reduced but strategic role as air and communications (and morale) support, will lead to Americans rewarding him for this chaotic, mismanaged, and entirely avoidable debacle.

The poll-driven leftists who think only in dichotomies–either be in a forever war or have this utter catastrophic cluster that left not only American but our allies short-footed–and stake their political lives on “the ends justify the means” are banking on Americans thinking that leaving potentially tens of thousands of Americans to the barbaric Taliban (and ISIS) is fine as long as we are out of Afghanistan.

We lost almost three thousand Americans on 9/11, and the Biden team actually thinks, truly believes to their very core, that we are willing to leave two times, ten times (more?) that many Americans to a far worse fate in Afghanistan.

The Biden team’s cruel, inhumane myopia and the complete lack of understanding of America and Americans is astounding, but that is what they really think and will continue to think until the images of the all-but-assured fate of stranded, Biden-abandoned Americans hit the internet. Even then, they will bleat, but wait, Americans wanted to end the Afghan war, the polls told us so!

Isn’t it typical of those fish-and-chip eating bullies over the pond to attack a man suffering from ice-cream brain-freeze syndrome?

I heard they eat warm ice cream over there washed down with their warm beer.

    Don’t forget the room-temperturate G&T. Ugh.

      And, they drive the wrong way and their wall switches are all upside down. (up for off)

      CIA WANTED THIS — TELL ME I’M WRONG

      Everyone now knows Obama had a secret campaign to create and support ISIS so that they would attack Syria. Saudi’s were the one’s supplying guns and $$ to ISIS.

      In a similar way, It appears that Biden’s deal is to get Taliban to attack Iran.

      CIA always looks for allies on the ground. “Enemy of my enemy is my friend”
      >> Taliban are Sunni – they hate Shiite.
      Taliban would need lots of weapons to go after Iran. We could not ship enough weapons thru Saudi’s without it being detected – better to just have the Taliban take over and seize all the weapons. Then plausibly deny – “oh, what a surprise – no one knew they would take over in just 11 days”

      CIA constantly games this stuff. This was planned. They wanted this outcome.
      Notice how Taliban – who fought us for 20 years and hate us – have not attacked the airport. Why ? Very unusual discipline for an illiterate militia army.

      Only one explanation. Taliban and USA have reached a strategic understanding. And only one common enemy – Iran.

        To unravel your complicated concept with a much simpler one.

        Donald Trump had a position of withdrawal from Afghanistan and a date he had decided to do it by

        Was the CIA also controlling Trump and did it employ the pollsters that found 3/4s of Americans wanted the end of the Afghan War?

        Biden is a gigantic supporter of the Iran deal by the way so your idea that he is playing some kind of multi-dimensional chess to use the Taliban to attack Iran doesn’t pass the laugh test.

          Ben Kent in reply to Danny. | August 22, 2021 at 11:55 am

          Thank you Danny. Just remember, Obama indirectly backing ISIS so that they could be used against Syria did not pass the laugh test — until it was shown to be accurate. Obama’s people thought they could use the religious fanatics – but then the fanatics started chopping off heads of Americans.

    That is Pelosi suffering from ice cream induced brain frostbite..

And now it’s come out that they doctored the transcript of Biden talking to the French President (Macron). The French released their own transcript that shows that once again, the WH is staffed by incompetent liars.

And what the fuck are Bitch McConnell and McCarthy DOING. The UK Parliament has LITERALLY done more than those 2 incompetent RINO Deep State fucks.

They should be out HAMMERING this incompetent demented fool every minute of every day, instead they released a couple weak statements and promptly hid from cameras. At an ABSOLUTE MINIMUM there needs to motions to investigate, censure, and impeach Biden, and to fire Austin and Miley.

Marjorie Taylor Green is the one that had to introduce an impeachment motion, and she’s an IDIOT, for fucks sake.

Our Republican ‘leadership’ is USELESS.

    Republican leadership believes, as the Biden admin, does that Americans are stupid, tuned out, and don’t really give a crap what happens across the world. They are all wrong, and it will be broadcast for all to see as the Taliban and ISIS use Biden-abandoned Americans to get pallets of cash for terrorists to stop beheading, setting Americans on fire, and etc.

    The vids may stop once the ransom is paid, but the tortured, horrific deaths of Americans Biden abandoned will not.

    Republicans are buying into the Biden dichotomy like the #StupidParty losers they are. Well, gee, polls say . . .

      Perhaps Biden’s goal is to bookend the 20 years in Afghanistan with 3,000 American deaths?

      henrybowman in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | August 21, 2021 at 8:53 pm

      I’m sorry, but isn’t the choice simply about who the ransom gets paid to? I’ve heard reports that to get airlifted out, American citizens are being forced to sign a personal promissory note to the US government for $2,000 per head.

        Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | August 21, 2021 at 11:25 pm

        (1) that’s payment for a service rendered, and it probably doesn’t even cover the cost.
        (2) they’ve stopped it because it got them such bad publicity.

      is that McCarthy’s roommate Frank Luntz’s polls and focus groups?

      0’care architect Jonathan Gruber’s: Americans “too stupid to understand”.
      Well, we’re not.
      We’re furious at not being given the truth in all things.
      We’re furious at the traitors on either side of the aisle.

    Based on all of the e-mails I’m getting from the RNC and it’s a lot, this is just a fund raising opportunity. They just haven’t yet figured out how to circle their wagons around the Democrats to save them from us.

    Agreed. Republican leadership is totally useless; they appear to agree with the Biden brain trust that brought us this debacle that Americans don’t care about Americans being beheaded, beaten, raped/sodomised, set on fire, having their eyes gouged out in the street, and all the horrors taking place in the wake of Biden’s “brave” decision to leave Afghanistan as dishonorably and dishonestly as possible.

    #BeyondClueless

      May I ask what Republican leadership’s part in this was/is there something I’m missing?

      If you mean to say aren’t effective enough to stop bad Biden foreign policy I would agree although that would take a country willing to give them 60 senators.

      Unless I’m missing something in this.

        I am referring to their unwillingness to use the Afghanistan debacle to hobble Biden’s socialist, Green New Deal, inflation-flaming domestic policy. Democrats would be if Trump were president, but the GOP is too afraid, or too wedded to the regressive, America-destroying commie agenda, to stand up and actually “seize” on an opportunity to stop the madness. This is politics, not policy, and the GOP is failing spectacularly. As usual.

    “And what the fuck are Bitch McConnell and McCarthy DOING.”

    Both are useless.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene should be the next Speaker of the House. She’d get things done. And we can trust her, unlike that rat McConnell, and GOPe hack McCarthy.

    JHogan in reply to Olinser. | August 21, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Evidently McConnell and McCarthy are waiting for the first snuff film featuring the beheading of an America citizen left behind by Biden and his Keystone Cops admin.

    After which they’ll issue strongly worded condemnations. Followed promptly by another round of fund raising.

Same old story. Need to import foreigners to do work Americans refuse to do—in this case members of UK Parliment to do work our own government refuses to do.

Another Voice | August 21, 2021 at 8:26 pm

Ari Fleischer, press secretary to Pres. G.W. Bush, recapped it for all of us,

“Joe Biden’s judgment on so many issues, for so many decades, has been so wrong, and we’re seeing it play out right now.” “Never in my wildest dreams did I think that the United States of America would be dependent on the tender mercies of the Taliban,. “Our security at that airbase, our ability to have planes take off and land, is totally dependent on the Taliban’s restraint.” “This is the consequence of Joe Biden just saying … ‘I’m smarter than all you generals, do it and do it now and do it on the timetable I told you.’”

Come June 2022 at the next scheduled G7 meeting in Germany he’ll get a whole lot more if has the nerve to show up and that’s assuming he is still in office.

JusticeDelivered | August 21, 2021 at 8:36 pm

Interesting, I know what should be done about this, but LI disapproves of my talking about applying high enough levels of force get the job done.

But Joe said everything was peachy just like the ice cream cone he just had. The damage done is only beginning and with reverberate for decades….. if we are lucky. The party of lies and deception is still in power. Can still steal elections and even now is protected by the fourth estate.

“Biden refused to take repeated calls from our allies, including those spanning some 36-hours after the fall of Kabul by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.”

When it’s Xi calling, if the phone rings more than once, Joe gets no ice cream that day.

Frank Hammond | August 21, 2021 at 8:58 pm

Wait!! Just this June – Didn’t the Press tell us that Clueless Joe had the most successful meeting with Boris Johnson since Roosevelt met with Churchill?
That Joe cleaned up the Foreign Policy mess created by Donald Trump?

That Boris and Joe were new best friends? What changed?

How many times must it be repeated that ending the war and leaving Afghanistan is not the issue.

The issue is how it was done. Evacuating Bagram airbase over night and without warning will go down in history as one of the dumbest, stupidest military decisions ever made. Evacuating our military before all civilians were evacuated is the act of an imbecile. Having no plan in place to evacuate civilians in the event things don’t go as well as planned is criminally incompetent.

Comrade Biden and his team of ignorant sycophants and third-rate DEI appointees think getting our military out before 9/11/21 is the good that offsets leaving over 10,000 American civilians behind and at the mercy of the Taliban (and ISIS and al Qaeda). The magnitude of detachment from reality, from sufficient intelligence to understand what can happen in the real world, and the sheer stupidity this indicates is so great as to be unbelievable were it not for the fact it is where are are at.

So, like others, I am almost ready to believe this was deliberately allowed to happen by people who had to have known better. Either to replace Biden with Harris. or to create a situation requiring we re-engage militarily, or both.

Look, I know its big fun to blast McCarthy and McConnell, and often for good reasons, but in this case not sure it warranted.

(Why can’t I remember how to do this… Well, wall of text it is….). So, remember, when your opponents are fighting amongst themselves… LET THEM! Right now even CNN is blasting Biden. What do you think will happen if McConnell starts getting overly involved?? Its hard enough for CNN to be even a little hard on Biden, so you really think they could stomach *agreeing* with McConnell? It would give them a group panic attack. We need the info of reality to get out to the people not listening to conservative news sources. If CNN and some others are willing to finally do their job, then it would be foolish for anyone to distract them.

The politicians in DC work on behalf of their donors and we don’t know who those donors are in some cases. GOPe and Dems maybe be teammates on some issues against our better interests.

Recall how happy and gleeful European Leftists were at the Chinese communists’ installation of Xi-den and sabotage of President Trump’s election (via the Wuhan virus bioweapon). These dopes were so thrilled to have a globalist, narcissistic, America-denigrating dope (in the same mold as his former boss, narcissist-incompetent, Obama) who would take a seat at the back of the room and “lead from behind.” Now, these naive fools are learning that there are consequences to the election of incompetent, feckless and stupid Dhimmi-crats to office.

“catastrophic” and “shameful.” “throwing us and everybody else to the fire”

But they meant this in the nicest way possible. This is how friends disembowel friends.
