Biden announced today the unilatteral withdrawal of US forces from Ass-crackistan by September.
Republican Lindsay Graham immediately denounced Biden.
It is said even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. This is such a good decision it should have been done every year since 2005. There is absolutely no reason at all for US forces to be there.
Prediction #1: The Taliban will get really quiet until September 11th.
Prediction #2: A few thousand Afghanistan citizens will throw grenades and plant roadside bombs to try to keep America in Afghanistan so the Afghanistan citizens don’t lose their jobs supporting American bases.
Prediction #3: A few ten thousand Afghanistan citizens will be murdered on September 12th. Of course, none of us will hear about it because not even Christian Amanpour will cover things that make democrats look bad. Hint: predictable bloodbaths make people look bad.
What Biden should have done: first negotiate a power sharing arrangement with Taliban with US force withdrawal included. Then it’s an agreement, not “running away”.
But in any case, this is long overdue and welcome news. Republicans are stupid to complain about this.
Republicans should reject democratic party initiatives on almost every topic, but it shouldn’t just be a knee-jerk response. It should be a reasoned response that advances the values our side enjoys.
Unfounded rumor: the only reason Biden is doing this is because he was not cut in on the skim from defense contracts. Drawdowns during the Trump administration severely cut the revenue stream to the point it wasn’t worth protecting. And most of that was going to Hillery and Kerry.
