Lost American Might

Biden claimed that this was all part of the plan… factored into the cost… so did he intentionally leave all of this firepower in the hands of brutal terrorists?

Billions of dollars of U.S. weapons are now in the hands of the Taliban following the quick collapse of Afghan security forces that were trained to use the military equipment.


Among the items seized by the Taliban are Black Hawk helicopters and A-29 Super Tucano attack aircraft.


Photos have also circulated of Taliban fighters clutching U.S.-made M4 carbines and M16 rifles instead of their iconic AK-47s. And the militants have been spotted with U.S. Humvees and mine-resistant ambush protected vehicles.

    But it’s President Trump’s fault, say the insane liberals.
    But in reality, this happened on Truck Driver Joe’s shift.
    The Democrats own this and no one else.
    Watch for landslide elections in 2022 and 2024 for conservatives.. hopefully not RINOs.

    Biden inherited the Afghanistan occupation but he owns his solution for withdrawal.

    There are a LOT of reasons to think that this was The Plan in Biden’s* mind. Or that of Susan Rice, Barky Obama, or Ron Klain.

    This is amazing (not in a good way)…

    Even as the U.S. military was withdrawing from Afghanistan, the United States kept aircraft flowing to the Afghans, in July touting plans to send 35 Black Hawk helicopters and three A-29s.

    “Those Black Hawks were not given to the Taliban. They were given to the Afghan National Security Forces to be able to defend themselves at the specific request of [Afghan] President Ghani, who came to the Oval Office and asked for additional air capability, among other things,” [White House national security adviser ] Sullivan said.

    WUT? Are F’n kidding me? Biden shut down US air support, then watched as the Taliban swiftly advanced across the country while the Afghani “army” got overrun/ran away/switched sides because the Afghani “Air Force” couldn’t provide any air cover themselves – after 20 years and $85 billion – and he thought it was just a dandy idea to drop 35 more $15million-each attack choppers into the hands of a failing “military”, in a county he was bugging out of.

    White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan lied. Braindead Biden gave those 35 choppers directly to the Taliban.

    gave those 35 choppers directly to the Taliban.

    Or Iran.

    Think Barky O and Susie Rice aren’t running the show? Who’s Barky’s best buddy in the Middle East? IRAN.

    Dad, I just wonder how many Taliban or isis or any other terrorists know how to fly a helicopter? It’s a lot harder than flying an airplane, though the fighter planes can be tough.
    But in Iran, they know how to fly helicopters and fighter jets.
    So, yes, they went to Iran for cash.

  7. Mar

    Now, the Taliban are in charge and now they have to rule.
    They are going to have to pay their soldiers, cops, firefighters, garbage collectors, judges, prosecutors, tax collector’s etc.
    Where are they going to get the money?
    Iran and China’s economy is suffering, Russia won’t. You can’t grow enough poppies to support the country.
    Of course, Truck Driver Joe might get them some cash in exchange for the US and Afghan’s who helped the US in the war.

    What “economy” are you talking about?

    Subsistence farming and goats are the way of life, plus revenue from heroin.

    soldiers, cops, firefighters, garbage collectors, judges, prosecutors, tax collector’s etc.

    Sorry, but ‘stan is NOT Milwaukee. Soldiers get paid in little boys. Fires just burn until they go out. Garbage goes into holes in the ground. Judges are Sharia courts. Prosecutors? Don’t make me laugh. And there won’t be any interstate highways, nor EPA, nor Dept of Education, either.
