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.

Oh this is rich

Apparently the officer that shot Ashely Babbit has agreed to talk about the incident publicly.

The right-wing pundits are on the radio saying this is a bad idea because it will make it look like Babbit was actually committing a crime and paint Trump supporters in a bad light.

They were all about doxing him, but they don't want his side of the story to come out. Sick!


I'm am so sick of hearing the right- wing media root for failure

Don't tell me republicans and right-wingers want the evacuation to succeed. They just can't wait until someone does something stupid and an American gets killed before they are evacuated. It is sickening how they make everything about politics.

When your Trump loving friends and relatives complain about Biden's handling of Afghanistan

Tell them "if Trump had a better plan for leaving Afghanistan he should have shared it"!

Point out that it is America that is getting out of Afghanistan, not Biden or Trump. It is our nation as a whole that is doing this, not a particular president. This is a case where we should demand cooperation between administrations, not politics.

Since Trump set the date, essentially obligating the next administration, he should have cooperated fully with that next administration.

Furthermore, Trump should have been working overtime to set up any visas for the translators and other folks that helped us in our 20 year war. Instead of waiting to the last minute to decide how to get people out it should have all been in place by May 1st of 2021, that being the date Trump set for the withdrawal.




A point I'm not hearing made enough about the evacuation from Afghanistan

Fact: Trump had more time in office to plan the evacuation than Biden did. Why wasn't a lot of the groundwork for such a massive pull out done during Trump's time in office? He was, after all, the one who set a date and made the deal with the Taliban. What did he do after he set that date and made the deal?

Consider the timeline:

-Trump made his deal with the Taliban in February of 2020

-Trump's deal set a date in May of 2021 for America to leave.

-That means there would have been 15 months to plan the evacuation if that date had been kept

-Trump's presidency lasted until the end of January 2021

-That means Trump was president during a whole year of the preparation time

-What was the Trump administration doing to effect a smooth transition out of Afghanistan?

-Why wasn't the Trump administration making plans to help the translators and others get the visas they would need?

-What plans were being made to accept refugees into the United States and other countries under Trump?

-Getting out of a 20 year war takes more time than 7 months. Just sayin.

-Biden had 7 months, Trump had a year.

The glee coming from right-wing radio pundits as they report on Afghanistan is disgusting

You can tell they are loving the chaos and the chance to put it on Biden. I swear some of them are sexually aroused over it. I tuned in briefly on my way to the store just now.

There's no mention of Trump's betrayal to the Afghan government through his deal with the Taliban. There's no mention of how Trump's stupid deal worked in the Taliban's favor and enabled them to advance militarily. There's no mention of the 5000 Taliban fighters let out of jail through Trump.

They're not giving any of the 20 year history, just the current chaos that has them tingling.

I'm no expert but...

it sure looks like Trump and Pompeo undermined the Afghan Government by making a deal with the Taliban. We spent 20 years fighting the Taliban and training Afghan Government forces only to have Trump make a deal with the very enemy of the Afghan Government? That does not make sense. It's no wonder the Taliban began brokering surrenders. It totally legitimatized the Taliban at the expense of the Afghan Government. And to top it off we had Trump and Pompeo making a "peace deal" without even including the Afghan Government.

Like I said, I'm no expert, but Trump and Pompeo's deal with the Taliban seems to be a big part of why the Taliban are now the victors in Afghanistan.

This is weird, scary, and sounds to me like projection from Pompeo

Listen closely at about the :19 second mark of this video where he nervously claims "disputed elections" among other things, have become the "tools" that will "dismantle our republic".

Is he projecting and admitting something here?

He seems very nervous and weird during the video too.
