Afghanistan Takeover by Taliban Worries
Governments in the Region, Europe
That Chaos Will Spread

Original Article

The collapse of the Afghan government and takeover of the country by the Taliban is stirring concern in foreign capitals that chaos and instability engulfing the country could spill over to its neighbors and possibly drive a tide of refugees as far as Europe. There was also an undercurrent of criticism of the U.S. for the speed of its departure after nearly 20 years, colored by Washington’s failure to establish a stable government that could stand without American military support.

It was a "mostly peaceful" takeover.

Of course the chaos will spread. 9th century barbarians just defeated the United States. And EVERYONE knows that we have a dementia patient running the country. Nothing emboldens your enemies like victory and weakness. If I were in Taiwan, South Korea or anywhere near or in the middle east, I would be booking the next flight out of country.

Soon China will have airbases in Afghanistan since they have cozied up to the Taliban, and will have increased influence in areas like the breakaway republics. Russia won't be happy. Beginning to think the main reason Biden did this was to undo another Trump policy with no regard to the repercussions. Good going, Joe. Your Trump hatred is getting thousands killed.

Bug Out Biden did the operation withdrawal at warp speed just to show the previous administration how much better he could do it. We are not the policemen of the world. If you have trouble with your neighbors then arm up and do something or just shut up. Bug Out Biden has bigger fish to fry like anti-vaxer, anti-mask, gun toting Christians on the countryside. Applesauce for brains Joe Biden operates at warp speed running head long with the U.S. into socialism. Joe's old boss couldn't work this fast at fundamentally changing America into a hell hole is just seven months when Obama tried it for eight years.

I could see a tide of refugees but I doubt that the Taliban have any interests outside of Afghanistan. They're pretty happy just decimating the population of that country.

His administration from the commie gutter was their dream come The strange noise that I was hearing every day was Putin, the Chinese emperor and the Koreans slapping their thighs and laughing 24/7 their heads off that the US 'installed' this pathetic vegetable. The community organizer's third term is not turning out quite how he wanted it. Now the surrounding countries and the Euros are worried! Oh my! But let's not wake up the vege, he needs his 'nap', because he worked I believe 2 days last week!

75,000 seventh century murdering marauders take over a country, and everyone sits back and watches. Wouldn't it be a good idea for nations to unite and handle such situations? You know, something like a 'united nations,' or something.

If the Euroweenies think they can do a better job in Afghanistan, then have at it. We'll sit back and watch you fail as well. As far as I'm concerned, if the people in that region love living in the stone age, then just drop a few nukes on them and bomb them back to where they want to live. The damage couldn't amount to more than a few thousand dollars.

Americans and Europeans will soon learn that this is why it is better to have what they consider a "bully" in the White House than a more more moderate European type President. Be careful what you wish for. Liberals wanted a more thoughtful person who used nice word and made them feel good. What they really needed is someone who said and actually did what needed to be said/done to make them safe. Now, they have neither. They have Joe Biden.

The lightning advance of the Taliban in retaking the country has led Afghan Americans, former generals and leading statesmen to blame President Joe Biden for a hasty US withdrawal. But he appears to have the public on his side - for now. Hadia Essazada wept as she recounted the horror the Taliban visited on her household, first beating her father, and then killing her brother. The first time "they were beating my father with an iron rod because they were looking for my elder brother", who had fought to resist their rule in the 1990s, she told BBC Persian. They fled their house in the northern city of Mazar-I-Sharif,

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Sunday blamed Democrats – both in the House of Representatives and at the White House – for allowing the eviction moratorium to expire, as millions of American families are at risk of being kicked out of their homes. "The House and House leadership had the opportunity to vote to extend the moratorium, and there was frankly a handful of conservative Democrats in the House who threatened to get on planes rather than hold this vote," she said on CNN "State of the Union."

A widespread internet outage caused several major websites to shut down Thursday afternoon, including Amazon, Delta, Capital One and Costco.

In 1949, the trailblazing anti-racist musical “South Pacific”––created by composer Richard Rodgers and lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II––debuted on Broadway to wild critical acclaim, running for over five years in nearly 2,000 performances. A particularly powerful and influential song from the musical, “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught,” carried the message that hatred does not arise spontaneously in the human species, but rather is inculcated––taught, sermonized, infused––by parents, teachers, coaches, political figures or other impassioned haters. Here are the still-relevant lyrics:

The assassination occurred around 1 a.m. when armed intruders, some of whom allegedly spoke Spanish, shot Moise in the head. Haitian President Jovenel Moise was shot dead by unidentified attackers in his private residence overnight in an "inhuman and barbaric act" and his wife was injured, Interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph said on Wednesday. He said the police and army had the security situation under control but gunshots could be heard throughout the capital after the attack, which occurred amid a rising wave of politically linked violence in the impoverished Caribbean nation.

The U.S. military has conducted defensive precision airstrikes against three facilities near the Iraq-Syria border region Sunday evening. According to Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby, the facilities are used by several Iran-backed militia groups engaged in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks against U.S. personnel and facilities in Iraq, including Kata'ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kata'ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS). "As demonstrated by this evening's strikes, President Biden has been clear that he will act to protect U.S. personnel. Given the ongoing series of attacks by Iran-backed groups targeting U.S. interests in Iraq, the President directed further military action to disrupt and deter such attacks," Kirby added.

The atmosphere is changing fast for President Biden. Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-W.Va.) opposition to weakening the filibuster has thrown the president’s legislative agenda into flux. The COVID-19 vaccination push has hit serious resistance, meaning Biden could fail to meet a key benchmark for the first time. And the economic picture is mixed, with some weaker-than-expected employment data and new fears about inflation, even as jobs return and businesses reopen. It all marks an abrupt change from Biden’s first months in office, when he pushed through a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package,

So not even its most progressive members seem to want to poke the bear.

President Joe Biden delivered a speech of quiet fury at the White House on Monday, defending his decision to bring home U.S. troops before blaming Afghan leaders for their failure to prevent the country collapsing. 'I stand squarely behind my decision,' Biden said. 'After 20 years I've learned the hard way. That there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces.' It was the first time the president had spoken publicly about the unfolding crisis in six days. He was forced to return from Camp David amid hostile headlines about his absence from Washington while Americans were being rescued from Kabul airport.

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.”

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.

Joe Biden and his media acolytes call him Mr. Empathy and Mr. Compassion. His Afghanistan speech yesterday told a different story, and should end that phony spin forever. My takeaway was how cold, and hard, and compassionless Biden was as he sought to extricate himself from the catastrophe of his own making. He blamed everyone but himself for his failure, particularly the Afghan army. He smarmily assured terrified Afghanis left behind he'd now speak out for their human rights instead of actually protect them. He effectively told U.S. servicemembers their service was for nothing. It was appalling.

Although the White House had intended to keep Biden under wraps for as long as possible, the demand that he say something – anything – about the unfolding debacle in Afghanistan forced him to leave Camp David for a 20-minute statement, after which he refused to take any questions. The important part of what he said boils down to one sentence: We had to leave and everything that went wrong was Trump’s or the Afghans' fault. Biden is a craven coward, a feckless fool, a dismal dummy, and a man who will soon have more blood on his hands than a thousand Lady Macbeths.

Speaking with The Spokesman-Review, Ryan Crocker, who served as Obama’s ambassador from 2011 to 2012, lamented that the Biden administration failed to see the Taliban’s swift takeover when preparing for the withdrawal from Afghanistan.“I think the direction was predictable; the trajectory was not,” he said. “What President Biden has done is to embrace the Afghan policy of President Trump, and this is the outcome.”Just a little over a month ago, Joe Biden rejected assertions that U.S. withdrawal would lead to
