Biden's Historically Spectacular Miscalculations on Afghanistan

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 8/15/2021 2:58:36 PM

“Rarely has an American president’s predictions been so wrong, so fast, so convincingly as President Biden on Afghanistan,” begins Mike Allen’s Axios report on the imminent fall of the Afghan national government to the Taliban. Just five weeks ago, Biden assured Americans “[T]he likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.” What made that prediction ludicrous even at the time was that his own generals had been telling him that there were very few reliable units in the Afghan army that could resist the Taliban. The endgame was always going to be played out swiftly

Remember what former Defense Chief Gates said about Biden’s foreign policy decisions? Now that is on full display!

Joey's in his bunker directing troops and army units --that don't actually exist on the afgany side--as the war winds down. That's just what Hitler did in his last days. Will the end result be the same this time?

Pepsodent Biden (Joey Brainstem) is not really responsible for anything. But the evil puppet-masters controlling him are beneath contempt. The lives of our military, the diplomatic corps, those who assisted us are inconsequential collateral damage. Zero always promised to deliver the middle east to the caliphate.

A female Afghan reporter broke down in the Pentagon briefing Monday afternoon, lamenting the U.S. withdrawal from her home country and explaining what the consequences would be for girls and women. “As you know, I’m from Afghanistan,” she began, “and I’m very upset today because Afghan women didn’t expect that overnight all the Taliban came.” “They took off my flag,” she exclaimed, pointing to her face mask emblazoned with the flag of Afghanistan, “and they put their flag” in its place. “Everybody is upset, especially women,” the yet unidentified reporter explained.

The Biden administration will recommend that most Americans receive a coronavirus vaccine booster shot eight months after their initial vaccination, the New York Times reported on Monday. Health-care providers could be allowed to offer booster shots around mid-September, two administration officials told the Times. Nursing-home residents and health-care workers, the first groups to be offered initial vaccinations in late 2020 and early 2021, probably will be the first to receive booster shots. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention already recommends that immunocompromised Americans receive a booster shot. The proposal for boosters for most Americans includes the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines.

Joe Biden’s speech today was a disgrace. He read briefly from a teleprompter, and took neither questions nor responsibility. It is reasonable to infer that his mental condition is such that he is not able to answer questions, or else his actions have been so indefensible that there is no answer to the questions that might be asked. It is a remarkable fact that in the last week, the Taliban has answered more questions from American media than President Biden. Biden pretended that he is being criticized for withdrawing from Afghanistan. This is a bad joke. I, for one, wrote years ago that we should wind up our involvement

The major broadcast networks continued their welcome stance on Monday afternoon of holding President Biden accountable for the embarrassing collapse of Afghanistan and the peril Afghans and Americans have found themselves in. After Biden’s speech, ABC, CBS, and NBC lambasted it for having “missed the moment” in failing to “accept responsibility” for this “catastrophe” he’s caused and explain how the U.S. and Afghan allies move forward. ABC was by far the harshest, wasting no time to take Biden to task with senior foreign correspondent Ian Pannell in Kabul saying that while Biden leveled a “pretty harsh assessment” blaming the country’s collapse

This afternoon, Joe Biden tried to defend not only his decision to pull out of Afghanistan, but also the way his team carried it out. As to the former, Biden said, “American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves.” But Afghans were willing to fight against the Taliban and to die doing so. That’s why the Taliban was never able to take over major population centers, not even when the U.S. force diminished to somewhere between 2,500-3,500. All they required of us was that we maintain something like that level of commitment.

One of my first reactions to the fall of Kabul over the weekend was concern about what this would communicate to our other allies and enemies. It’s hard to look at our abandonment of allies in Afghanistan and not conclude this is bad news for a place like Taiwan which is dependent on the US for its continued freedom. As you’re probably aware, China’s Xi Jinping has recently vowed to reunify Taiwan by any means necessary. “Solving the Taiwan question and realising the complete reunification of the motherland are the unswerving historical tasks of the Chinese Communist Party and the common aspiration of all Chinese people,” Xi said.

President Biden defended his decision to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan during an address to the nation delivered Monday, one day after the Taliban routed government forces and took over the capital city of Kabul. “I stand squarely behind my decision,” he said. “After 20 years, I’ve learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces. That’s why we’re still there, we were clear-eyed about the risks, we planned for every contingency. But I always promised the American people I would be straight with you.” “The truth is, this did unfold more quickly than we had anticipated,” he added. While he had argued for months

President Biden is scheduled to return to the White House from the Camp David retreat Monday afternoon to comment on the deteriorating crisis in Afghanistan. Biden will deliver remarks at 3:45 p.m. from the East Room, he tweeted Monday. The president released a statement Saturday reiterating his commitment to end the decades-long conflict in Afghanistan despite the Taliban’s rapid resurgence and recent military conquests. “I was the fourth President to preside over an American troop presence in Afghanistan—two Republicans, two Democrats. I would not, and will not, pass this war onto a fifth,” he commented. Since that press notice, the Taliban has toppled all major provincial capitals and cities in the territory.

The shocking fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban is such a failure that even the liberal networks on Monday have abandoned Joe Biden's decision making (at least for now), hammering the President as “completely wrong” and executing a Vietnam-esque Saigon “debacle.” On NBC’s Today, Savannah Guthrie opened the show by blasting, “A catastrophe for its people and a debacle for the Biden administration. A triumphant Taliban storming the presidential palace in Kabul, seizing total control of the country.” Guthrie piled, on: “And the President at Camp David standing by his decision but under fire for a botched withdrawal.”

President Joe Biden will remain hidden at his presidential retreat at Camp David through Monday, according to the White House, as the Taliban swiftly seized control of Afghanistan. The president’s daily guidance for Monday indicated Biden would remain at Camp David for at least one more day, with no public events scheduled. But a senior administration official indicated to reporters Sunday evening that Biden might address the country “in the next few days,” according to reports. It remains unclear whether Biden will speak from Camp David or return to the White House to deliver his speech, the reports noted. He was previously scheduled to remain at Camp David until Wednesday.

Fauci said, “What’s coming next is that we are going to have to continue to get people vaccinated so that right now, even in states in which you have a good relative proportion of people vaccinated, you have to get the overwhelming proportion of people vaccinated. But you also have to do mitigation. And that gets to the controversial issue of mask-wearing and the mandating of things mandating of vaccines,

He followed that with, “Anti-vaxxers think they are owning us liberals by refusing to get vaccinated. But as the kids say, this is an epic self-own.”
