Afghanistan conflict: As Kabul falls,
Biden backlash grows

Original Article

Posted By: FlyRight, 8/18/2021 5:07:40 AM

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.

"But he appears to have the public on his side - for now" Really?? Not from any of the polling that I've seen. I'm guessing that the BBC is the British version of MSNBC.

This article misses the point. Most Americans supported withdrawing from Afghanistan. Most Americans expected an orderly process that would ensure the safe evacuation of our fellow citizens and the removal of materiel and ordnance BEFORE shutting down a secure base of operations and extracting military personnel. Instead we got the Biden Plan, a complete disaster and utter fiasco.

To the BBC and allied outlets, the "Public" is those included in their "Bubble-verse". Anyone outside that is props and scenery - unimportant, replaceable and dismissable.

Biden does not "have the public on his side." He has less support from the public than he did on November 3, 2020,. The problem is, the Marxists can govern in a disastrous way, and right now there's nothing stopping them from stealing every election going forward. The FBI and the courts are corrupt, and the Luciferian media is certain to provide cover. Actually, I think they want chaos and a weakened America. Things look bad for the Left now, but if there isn't election integrity they won't have consequences, so there's nothing for them to worry about.

The backlash cannot be pulled back far enough for me. I hope that it comes out so forcefully that democrats won’t know what hit them. They deserve every ill feeling and unending criticism they receive. In fact, many in the party deserve jail time. Now that is the backlash I am waiting for!

The ghost of then and now.......the main difference between Vietnam and Afghanistan is that the retreat from Vietnam was better organized and the level of shame was a little less. Either way the folks who fought were knifed in the back by the democrats and the civilian population who supported us were and will soon be massacred

Biden has public support right now? That's a riot and a laugh. Biden might have that on tattooed, green hair fat white girl who supported him at his motorcade when all the protesters showed up to jeer at him while flipping him off. Biden is just a dead duck in the water with their stolen election the senile old jerk doesn't even know what going on around him after all he's on vacation. Declare victory Joe and go golfing it's what Obama would do.

Dear BBC, if President Trump had gone on vacation during an international crisis of his own making, returned by force to the WH to make an angry shove-the-blame-on-everyone-else speech and then gone back on vacation, you and the rest of the left would have been screaming for his crucifixion. Why aren’t you doing the same to Xiden? (Rhetorical question but I would still love to hear them answer it.)

May it continue to grow and throw in some backlash to Pelosi for the gulag she's created in DC. I just read she is giving the House Representatives a $25,000 a year raise. Most likely for their vote on the 3.5 Trilion infrastructure bill. May that woman pay for the horror she has brought on the American people. I pray she, Fauci and Biden all get a continuing and steady stream of backlash.

Americans have lost their will to fight. Since WWII we have lost, ended or withdrawn from every conflict we engaged in. Wars are not ended! They are either won or lost. Even though FDR and Harry Truman were Democrats, they understood that the only way to end a war is victory. The Japanese didn’t understand this either until they finally realized that we were willing to kill every last one of them unless they stopped fighting.

Backlash? From who? Since when does the Left care what others say? This clown, China Joe, really represents only about 15% of the country but he's still POTUS from a stolen election ... the biggest of many more to come. Biden could be as unpopular as Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette and it won't mean beans --- not until the middle class wakes up from being fat & happy selling their houses for so much, watching their IRAs grow with inflated dollars and not caring their own kids are turning against them. Until then, Biden et. al. will march on.

We the American people have our exit strategy from this regime: 1. Guard the 2022 elections, primary the RINOs, and take the House and Senate in the general election. 2. Install Donald J. Trump as Speaker of the House. 3. Impeach Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. 4. Donald J. Trump becomes the 47th (or 48th if Biden doesn't last) POTUS. 5. Trump cleans house of all the deep state globalist elites. 6. Trump completes the term, but steps aside in 2024 for DeSantis or whomever he chooses. 7. MAGA President follows through, and Trump remains Kingmaker emeritus. 8. America climbs back from the brink, while Trump enjoys whatever remaining time God grants him.

WASHINGTON – Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday confronted Secretary of State Antony Blinken for statements that President Joe Biden has made on Afghanistan, including the president's claim that al-Qaida is no longer active in the country. During remarks on Friday, Biden said the United States no longer has any interest in keeping troops in Afghanistan because al-Qaida, which was behind the 9/11 attacks, is gone. “What interest do we have in Afghanistan at this point with al-Qaida gone?” Biden said. "We went to Afghanistan for the express purpose of getting rid of al-Qaida in Afghanistan, as well as... getting Osama bin Laden. And we did."

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.

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."

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:

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 Biden administration was forced to close the Kabul airport as the chaotic, catastrophically planned evacuation of American citizens from Afghanistan is overwhelming state department employees with too much paperwork. There are thousands of people — mostly Afghan civilians who collaborated with the U.S. military — waiting at the airport to be rescued. According to the British military, seven Afghans have died at the airport from the heat and the crush of people. SIS has issued a warning to Americans looking to leave Afghanistan. This precipitated a warning from the U.S. embassy for Americans to avoid going to the airport. Does Biden expect people to walk home from Afghanistan?
