This may seem unfair, but it's my honest opinion that...

that certain (maybe not all) right-wing media pundits, MAGTs, haters and republicans finally got what they've been salivating for: deaths in Afghanistan they can blame on Biden.

If this is unfair of me? I don't care.
I know too many MAGAts, and I assure you they are glad there have finally been some deaths. It was the one thing missing for them in their narrative.

Trump left 9000 Isis unguarded when he abandoned Syria and the Kurds

15. Thank you.

I live in Tennessee....and I agree that she is awful.

Thank goodness for my wonderful Democratic children, sister, nieces, nephew, neighbors, and friends. We are in the minority in this red state, true, but I am lucky to know many fantastic Democrats here.

We also have a terrible governor.

3. Unfair? No, it isn't.

There are no doubt many cheering today's events. All would be enemies of America, and some are no doubt domestic.

4. I'm starting to wonder if Biden was setup.

And maybe this is pure tin foil hat fantasies but maybe someone in the conservative camp knew that Afghanistan was a no-win scenario and they planned it that way when Trump lost so they could blame his successor? But maybe that's my paranoid fantasy. You know that Fox News wasn't going to be happy no matter what the outcome was.

5. I put NOTHING past the enemies of democracy. Trump left Biden in a terrible position on many

fronts on his way out the door. He certainly was not hoping things would go well for the new administration.

6. Oh, there's no doubt in my mind that May 1st date Trump set was a setup

How was Biden expected to coordinate the pullout of Afghanistan only 3 months after being inaugurated? If Trump got elected he would have just done something else to placate the Taliban at the expense of the Afghan government.

Trump brags that no Americans were killed between Feb 2020 and the time he left office-that's because he sold out Afghanistan and made a deal with the Taliban.

Sorry, but I'm pissed that Trump's part in ending this war is not being emphasized, especially when it is a big part of what Biden was left to deal with.

18. Biden was not set up.

Obama wanted to get us out but listened to his people and agreed to give more support a shot.

Biden said he would get us out. He knew it would be messy. The unexpected was the sitting Afghan government abandoning their posts.

My feeling is it is going fine. We are actively working with Taliban security people to get it done. I also heard a general today say that Taliban has managed to stop a number of attacks in advance. It is something they will need to do after we go.

8. The truth is not constrained by concepts such as fairness...



It is what it is, and RWers love their talking points.

9. It's the truth. They are a death cult.

They absolutely have been salivating for the kind of thing that happened this morning. No question. They are salivating for more of it.

16. You're spot on.

And further proof of them being a death cult is how they are setting up kids too young to be vaccinated to get COVID. It's only the repuke governors who are banning mask mandates in schools. That side loves blood sacrifices.

They want war.

17. I do not think "salivating" is unfair.

It is way beyond twisting and ignoring facts to fit the narrative. What little I saw earlier bordered on celebration that US soldiers are dead.
