The GOP needs Afghanistan to take a turn for the worse ...

Ö and there have been several GOP leadership say that this is a president weaker than Carter and the 70ís. With Russia and the Trump administration friendly with the Taliban, I have a bad feeling that we will see a hostage situation before this is over and it will be drug out until the next election.

1. I hope not

I think in a few weeks the story will die in the media as more people are evacuated.

2. This isn't something I wish for, I dread a situation like that.

But the moves of Trump and McCarthy are easily predictable. Just being a realist

3. The repukes are ready to Benghazi the withdrawal from Afghanistan

So we must Benghazi January 6th back in their faces to make them STFU.

Iím tired of the Dems being pussies. We need to punch back at the repukes like they didnít see it coming.

5. I think...

That whoever planned this little caper wanted to put American military under the control of the taliban, in some fashion. They thought Biden would cave, and leave a limited force in Afghanistan. With taliban in power, our forces would have to work with them if we had stayed there. That would have looked terrible for the president, and would have probably put an enormous dent in morale. My opinion.

Thanks, President Biden, for not putting our military in that position.

8. The QOP always lies about everything. They don't need Afghanistan to do that.

9. McCarthy said today on Fox business that "thousands of Americans being held hostage"

While speaking about Afghanistan and said that this administration is Carter and the Ď70s on steroids. They are praying that hostages are taken and just as the GIP did in Iran, they will work with the Taliban to hold them through the election.

11. You must not understand what gaslighting is.

There have not been hostages but McCarthy fully intended to say so on national tv to either plant a seed into others mind or to perpetrate a gals narrative that would be way to debunk. There is always a strategy, a method to the madness. That was my point.
