Afghanistan is a total disaster. Crime out of control, economy tanking, and antisemitism at the highest levels. EMBARRASSING! If I were President, you would see a drag queen in every mosque, and GDP, not IEDs!— Blompf2024 (@Blompf2024) September 1, 2021
Friendly reminder that Trump had four years to accomplish the Afghanistan withdrawal and kept letting advisors and media pressure scare him out of it. They tried all the same tricks on this administration and they failed. Biden is more what Trump supporters voted for than Trump.— Caitlin Johnstone ? (@caitoz) August 31, 2021
This is extremely difficult for me to say:— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) August 31, 2021
I once thought I truly knew Joe Biden and he helped me through pain and grief, for which I am grateful.
This man on tv giving this speech, I do not recognize this man. God help our country. God help the Americans we have abandoned.
We’re all tired of hearing about Afghanistan.
Unfortunately, the GOP has no intention of dropping the issue, which is becoming their new Benghazi. They intend to make their position of staying in Afghanistan forever a defining issue in the 2022 midterms. What’s more, the GOP is planning to double down on imperialism in order to strike a contrast with Joe Biden who condemned an era of nation building in his speech yesterday.
“Former Trump national security adviser Robert O’Brien spoke for over an hour with House Republicans on Tuesday, helping them develop their latest policy offensive on Afghanistan, Axios has learned.
Why it matters: O’Brien has increasingly been working with Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to help House Republicans in their effort to regain the majority in 2022. …
What we’re hearing: During the call, O’Brien walked members through a series of policy proposals focused on “rebuilding American credibility,” one source with direct knowledge of the call told Axios. …
He said “the perception of weakness is very provocative,” and warned that countries like China and Russia will seek to exploit the region following the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.
One proposal he backed includes immediately sending 250 M1 Abrams tanks to Poland to bolster its defense capabilities on Europe’s eastern front with Russia, as the Poles wait for previously purchased U.S. tanks to arrive. …”
So, this is where we going.
For whatever reason, Joe Biden made the right call to end the war in Afghanistan. The stupid, reactionary, knee jerk logic of oppositism requires the GOP to take the opposite position of whatever Joe Biden does which is that we ought to have stayed in Afghanistan to own the libs. As a result of this retarded mindset, House Republicans now believe that we have to defend the “credibility” of the American Empire by getting more aggressive in other regions and doing things like sending a bunch of tanks to Poland.
