The Taliban has seized US weapons left in Afghanistan worth billions — possibly including 600,000 assault rifles, some 2,000 armored vehicles, and 40 aircraft, including Black Hawks, according to reports. The US gave the Afghan military an estimated $28 billion in weaponry between 2002 and 2017 — including seven brand new helicopters delivered to Kabul just a month ago.


It's hard to keep up with all the evil doings of democrats.

Perhaps for the first time, a major media outlet has used the term "assault rifle" correctly. Military M4s are not what is in the average American's gun safe.

My question is "Do the supply of weapons go to Iran to use against Israel, or to Pakistan to fight India?" With the people in charge of out government, you know they are to be used against our allies if not against the U.S.

Let them have the choppers. Be fun watching jagoffs try to fly them. On the other hand please ship the ammunition back home. I'll buy it.

Seven helicopters delivered in just the last month. Is there anyway that we could possibly question that this was not a deliberate move?

Even the carefully chosen questioners at Biden's festival of lies today seemed a little bit hostile. He may be the kind of boss who punishes those who bring bad news. The biggest whopper was his claim that our allies still buy into his fantasy.

Well, when the time comes, either a few strafing runs or some air-to-air missiles will solve the Blackhawk problems pretty easily. The problem with the rifles is that they are extremely durable and reliable, will last for 50 years if given a bit of maintenance. Of course, 'a bit of maintenance' may be well beyond the capabilities of the average 7th century barbarian.

Unfortunately, #4, we have been teaching the to fly helos and aircraft. How well they learned is a whole different question. They have had old soviet helos for a long time, but the difference between those and our helos is a bit like the difference between a '55 lumber truck and a 2003 Ford F350. Both trucks but there are a lot of differences. Spare parts WILL be needed and they won't have them, or the ability to repair them. Even if we don't destroy the helos, they'll be down for maintenance soon enough. All helos are maintenance hogs.

#5, the Taliban will almost certainly sell the brand-new Black Hawks to the Chinese for a tidy profit, the same way the Iraqis (or some other wonderful place where we were meddling) did with the advanced drone Obama gifted them when it "crashed." Give the FedGov credit; this is a lot easier than having to commission and sell "Hunter Biden's artwork" as a way to make money.

The Taliban thanks you , Slo Jo the Gropin' Paedo....this NEVER should have happened...they don't want us to have guns but give them and other military hardware to a bunch of 12th century barbarians. Do they even have the ability to maintain them, or are they going to get help from the Russkies and Chinese?...the more I think about it, I'm beginning to believe that Armageddon will be Christians vs Islam...and you know how that ends...

And Lara Logan among others is suggesting that handover of these weapons was the actual purpose of the chaotic withdrawal. Same as Benghazi turns out to have been something about handing weapons to the Arab Spring. It is not an outlandish allegation - it is exactly what President Buchanan did by filling up Fort Sumter where weapons could be and were grabbed by the South. So in his footsteps, Obama/Biden. Of note - if I had a depot of US weapons, and other than Germany I don't know who that is, I would prepare for some like effort to hand those over under cover of chaos.

If the choppers are at the airport, fuel them up and fly them out of there. Or if not, fold the rotors and load on to C-17s and take them home.

In December of 2020, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) was allegedly the victim of a cyberattack as they were reviewing documents received from Pfizer regarding their mRNA COVID vaccine trials in preparation for issuing emergency use approval for the vaccine in Europe.   More than 40 megabytes of classified information was allegedly published on the dark web, and sent to several journalists, including The BMJ which just published a review of the leaked documents last week.  One of the key issues revealed in the leaked documents, according to The BMJ, was that European regulators had major concerns over unexpectedly low quantities of intact mRNA in batches of the vaccine developed for commercial production. Some batches were as low as only 55% intact. CORRECTION*

I understand that the commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division has told the commander of the British special forces at the Kabul airport to cease operations beyond the airport perimeter. Maj. Gen. Christopher Donahue has told his British Army counterpart, a high-ranking field-grade officer of the British army's 22nd Special Air Service Regiment, that British operations were embarrassing the United States military in the absence of similar U.S. military operations. I understand that the British officer firmly rejected the request.

Jim Geraghty’s written two posts today making the case that something is up. I’m not sold on his first post. His second is more persuasive. The first post argues that Biden’s chat with George Stephanopoulos was filled with enough contradictions and awkward stammering that, paired with his low visibility lately, we might reasonably conclude that his health has become an issue. Whether you agree comes down to a gut check on how you felt about the interview. I didn’t see it as out of the ordinary for Biden. His answers were emphatically not good but he didn’t seem checked out to me. If anything, he was combative

Incredibly cynical and depressing. And quite possibly correct. “The public opinion is pretty damn clear that Americans wanted out of the ongoing war and don’t want to get back in. It’s true today and it’s going to be true in six months,” said one Biden ally. “It isn’t about not caring or being empathetic about what’s going on over there, but worrying about what’s happening in America.”… White House officials believe Americans’ horror over graphic images of the chaos in Kabul and pleas from Afghans who fear they will be killed

A report from Fox News on Saturday highlighted the scope of the crisis unfolding in Afghanistan as the network claims the Taliban now control 75,000 vehicles, 200 aircraft, 600,000 weapons, and $85 billion in funding.This is like Obama’s Fast and Furious gun-running scandal on steroids.

During the presidential campaign, the Biden administration introduced a new word into the lexicon: a “lid.” His campaign has called a lid countless times without explanation, meaning it was cutting off all media appearances for that day. Joe Biden went on vacation to Camp David just before Afghanistan fell to the Taliban and gave no public remarks on the matter until more than 24 hours after the fall of Kabul. That was a speech Biden delivered from the White House Monday, after which he took no questions from the media. He went silent again, then delivered another speech on Wednesday, this time on COVID. He took no media questions

Sources told Reuters the FBI has not found much evidence that proves anyone coordinated the Capitol Hill riot: Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.

As we approach the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks it is interesting to look back and see how American culture has changed in that two-decade time span. Back then mainstream culture (sorta) rallied around God and country against our enemy, the Taliban and Al Qaeda. Today the culture sees those same people that believe in God and country as bad or worse than the Taliban.
