Apparently the goals of this stupid 20 yr occupation were to transfer trillions of tax dollars to weapons contractors, promote feminism & homosexuality, and finally extract the entire population of Afghanistan to transplant them in the US.— J A C K ?? F E L L (@JACKFELL1955) August 24, 2021
I loathe this stupid empire. https://t.co/2grY5pcuR8
During the Bush era, Republicans realized that the best way to get power was war, because it was the only way the media would be on their side.— Richard Hanania (@RichardHanania) August 24, 2021
After flirting with anti-war rhetoric for a little bit, they’re right back where they were. Cheneyism has had its best month since 2003
The “journalists” are pro-endless war and pro-imperialism and aligned with the “intelligence community” and military-industrial complex. In fact, they are so aligned with the Deep State and Pentagon and the Blob in Washington that they are willing to trash Joe Biden and push down his poll numbers in order to sustain the occupation of Afghanistan.
“Poor Ron Klain.
It’s not a good sign when a White House chief of staff to a Democratic president wants to retweet favorable news coverage and all he can find is the least credible and most slavishly loyal commentators on the Internet.
The Afghanistan fiasco has created that most disorienting and discomfiting experience for a progressive administration — a serious bout of critical media coverage immune to White House spin and determined to tell the unvarnished story of an ongoing debacle.
The White House and its allies have lashed out at what they are portraying as an insular, pro-war media ignoring its many successes in the Afghan evacuation.
This, like Ron Klain’s tweeting, is a sign of desperation and of a feeling of outraged betrayal that usually dependable allies have, on this story, switched sides. Say it’s not so, CNN. …
The press is blatantly biased and has become even more so over time, repeatedly propagating false narratives that have shredded its credibility. Still, there are limits beyond which even it can’t be pushed. …”
As we have noted, the shitlibs and True Cons are openly aligned on all sorts of issues, but especially on imperialism and endless war overseas. George W. Bush and Liz Cheney have recently become #Resistance heroes.
Note: We saw this when Trump attempted to withdraw American troops from Syria too.
