after Afghanistan falls to Taliban

Former President George W. Bush broke his silence on the Taliban's rapid takeover of Afghanistan, which prompted a frantic evacuation of U.S. citizens and Afghan allies widely compared to the fall of Saigon in 1975.Hours after President Joe Biden addressed the nation, asserting he stands by his decision to withdraw military forces from the country, Bush released a statement late Monday through his presidential center focusing on the humanitarian situation and evacuations that follow a war he initiated nearly 20 years ago to root out al Qaeda following the 9/11 terror attacks.

Bush's biggest mistake was listening to Gen. Powell's bs about 'if you break it, you own it - you have to fix it.' Nation building ala Japan and Germany after WWII means you have to BEAT them first.

When someone "breaks his silence" as frequently as George W. Bush is doing lately he is no longer "breaking" any "silence."

GW should have remained silent. This message is as weak and uninspiring as Biden's. Thanks for the hearts and prayers. No doubt GW and Biden find the unfolding events concerning.

Bush supported Biden and worked against Trump. This is about as much his catastrophe as it is Biden's. He should apologize to Trump and all Trump supporters and then vanish from the earth. Cheney and his ilk too.

I loathe George Bush, despite having voted for him and stupidly supported his warmongering during his years in office. He's a disgrace. Go back in hiding George, crawl back under your rock. Nobody wants to hear what you have to say about anything, particularly Afghanistan and the Middle East.

Hey George maybe you and your pal Bill Clinton could find the money that you supposedly took to Haiti and somehow wound up in Hillary's brother's pocket. After you do that maybe I will have time to listen to your ramblings. You are a disgrace to your former office and believe me I was one of your staunchest supporters. The day you chose the Clinton mafia over the Trump family was the day I realized what a mistake I had made. Please go back to your hypocritical bible reading.

"Breaking silence," breaking wind. In the case of GWB, it amounts to the same thing. A meaningless expulsion of gaseous effluvia. Now he and the rest of his clan will return to their comfortable, insulated lives, little caring about the people of the nation over which he formerly presided. And soon, if events continue on the same trend line, to become the former nation, increasingly reduced to a humiliating cabal of kweers, degenerates, third wave feminists, communists and every other collection of anti-American rabble. God save us.

The elites (specifically the Bush family) who hated and worked against PDJT own the Afghan disaster just as much as Biden does. They conspired with the deep state to get Trump out of office and they succeeded, knowing full well that they were installing a cabal of socialists hiding behind and manipulating a senile old man. They are beyond contempt.

I don't think criticism of Bush is warranted. We actually accomplished something in Afghanistan. The Taliban were routed just like they are routing the Afghanistan government now. We had only a small force in Afghanistan as of this year. What was the problem with keeping the status quo? Were the Taliban really going to move forward knowing the US was still there and able to send more troops if necessary? Maybe it was bad policy to have entered into a situation that was inherently unstable and needed our permanent protection but we did it and we owed the Afghan people more. And yes, I disagree with Trump on this, too.

If there is one family that represents the Uniparty, the Bush Family is it. And President Trump knew it from the start. Hence their blind unrelenting hatred of him. And they don't care what Biden does to this nation, it's all grist in the Uniparty's mill. George, you will go down as the president I voted for whom I most loathe and who opened my eyes to the true nature of the evil Uniparty. You and Cheney were absolutely everything they said you were and probably more. And sadly, you both will die in your cushy beds and not in a the cell you deserve.

#20 - we accomplished nothing in the years after the fall of the Taliban except pizzing away trillions on a country full of tribal barbarians that nation building was never going to work for. Daddy Bush and Sonny Bush have given us 30 years of adventurism in the ME that produced exactly nothing at all except a further rise in Islamic fundamentalism. Trump recognized this and was determined to get us out of this no win scenario safely. Status quo is unacceptable in this case, because it means we continue to pour dollars and lives down a rathole that will never end. The military has a function - kill the enemy and destroy their ability to make war. That's it. Sending them to nation build is a fools' errand - a mistake that both sides make and have made since 1950.

GWB: ."we have the responsibility and the resources to secure safe passage for them now, without bureaucratic delay." Why? We owe them nothing just as we owe the illegal aliens from Mexico, Central and South America nothing. This country is falling apart and we should take in thousands more unskilled people who will still hate America even as we feed them, educate them in our transgender nonsense and take care of their medical needs.

What I read was the Bushes expect our troops to carry out their current assignment that was given to them by Biden: Evacuate Americans and Afghans. The Bushes basically gave their support to what Biden is doing in Afghanistan. there wasn't a single word of criticism. Its Bush II's fault we are still in Afghanistan 20 years after we started. He tried to form a government that was largely dysfunctional, and he tried to build a nation out of a bunch of warring tribes that would not band together to defend themselves. We should have done neither. If the Afghans wanted a government or a nation, they needed to lead that effort themselves. After taking out AQ and the Taliban, WE SHOULD HAVE LEFT, knowing full well it would become a hot spot that would have to be dealt with again at a later time.

Exuberant after President Joe Biden’s spectacular defeat in Afghanistan, China’s state-run Global Times on Tuesday warned that if any American troops are present in Taiwan when Beijing decides to invade it by force, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will “crush them by force.”The Global Times was responding indignantly to a tweet from Sen.

Cornyn incorrectly stated in this tweet that 30,000 American soldiers are stationed in Taiwan, roughly the same amount stationed in South Korea.

I mean, you’ve got to be kidding me. In the friendliest of settings, Joe Biden still just doesn’t get it. An interview with former Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos shows a president who simply cannot take responsibility for his screw-up. We have at least 10,000 Americans trapped in Afghanistan. There seems to be no solid plan to get them out safely other than entrusting the Taliban, a terrorist group, not to attack them as some undoubtedly are trying to make their way to the airport in Kabul. Then again, our government said that they cannot guarantee their safety.

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.

In October of 2020, former White House physician Ronny Jackson raised a question that was on the minds of many voters: “I watch Joe Biden on the campaign trail and I am concerned that he does not have the cognitive ability to serve as our commander in chief and head of state.” Jackson, who had served under Presidents Obama and Trump, stressed that he was speaking as a “concerned citizen” rather than a physician. Inevitably, the media collectively descended on Jackson like so many flying monkeys, but he raised the issue again during Biden’s absence from the public eye last weekend as Afghanistan was being overrun by the Taliban.
