Two prominent Republicans — Representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska — condemned members of their own party on Sunday for objecting to bringing Afghan refugees to the U.S https://t.co/B4o2JX9VEv pic.twitter.com/SvPbCGTdYb— The New York Times (@nytimes) August 22, 2021
I’ve spent the last eight months criticizing Joe Biden.
What’s the alternative though? Do we want to engage in another round of pointless backlash politics and bring the GOP back to power? Would we be better off with Ben Sasse and the True Cons and MIGA running our foreign policy? Did Trump ever really intend to withdraw from Afghanistan?
Goober’s position is stay in Afghanistan forever. Prop up the fake Afghan government forever. Prop up the fake Afghan army which didn’t fight forever. Everything is fine as long as the gravy train keeps flowing to defense contractors. Break the peace agreement with the Taliban. Go to war with the Taliban. Squander more American lives to prop up the fake Afghan government. Bring as many Afghan refugees as possible to states like Nebraska. Owning this quagmire is what a “great nation” does or something.
Note: I don’t care for either of these parties. I also still don’t see any reason to participate in the 2022 midterms. Joe Biden can be awful for all sorts of reasons, but that doesn’t mean the GOP has changed. It has learned nothing from occupying Afghanistan for twenty years!
