So, are we celebrating? I would hope not; although I have seen some who are praising the withdrawal and totally forgetting what their man said just in July. Must be one of those loyal biden lovers – the man in their eyes can do no wrong and therefore they give him a pass. QUIT GIVING THIS FEEBLE OLD MAN A PASS – Your hatred for Trump put this chump in office.
Never mind he is responsible for those 13 dead service members. Never mind that we left enough military equipment to support the Taliban in their pursuit of terror. Never mind the fact that the man can’t stay awake. Or nevermind he couldn’t stop from looking down at his watch when the caskets were arriving. One father there at Dover AFB said he did that, 13 times. Every time a casket came out he would look down at his watch.
biden’s own words
“The drawdown is proceeding in a secure and orderly way, prioritizing the safety of our troops as they depart.”
“And thanks to the way in which we have managed our withdrawal, no one — no one U.S. forces or any forces have — have been lost. Conducting our drawdown differently would have certainly come with a increased risk of safety to our personnel.”
“We provided our Afghan partners with all the tools — let me emphasize: all the tools, training, and equipment of any modern military. We provided advanced weaponry. And we’re going to continue to provide funding and equipment. And we’ll ensure they have the capacity to maintain their air force.”
“We’re also going to continue to make sure that we take on the Afghan nationals who work side-by-side with U.S. forces, including interpreters and translators — since we’re no longer going to have military there after this; we’re not going to need them and they have no jobs — who are also going to be vital to our efforts so they — and they’ve been very vital — and so their families are not exposed to danger as well.”
Q Is a Taliban takeover of Afghanistan now inevitable?
THE PRESIDENT: No, it is not.
THE PRESIDENT: Because you — the Afghan troops have 300,000 well-equipped — as well-equipped as any army in the world — and an air force against something like 75,000 Taliban. It is not inevitable.
Q Mr. President, thank you very much. Your own intelligence community has assessed that the Afghan government will likely collapse.
THE PRESIDENT: That is not true.
Q Is it — can you please clarify what they have told you about whether that will happen or not?
THE PRESIDENT: That is not true. They did not — they didn’t — did not reach that conclusion.
