Deadline amid Taliban Threats

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 8/24/2021 12:43:48 PM

President Biden has decided to adhere to his initial August 31 deadline for withdrawing American forces from Afghanistan, multiple outlets reported on Tuesday. Biden has requested contingency plans should the U.S. need to keep troops in Afghanistan until a later date, a senior administration official told CNN. A Taliban spokesman said on Tuesday that the U.S. must withdraw all its forces from the country by August 31, with “no exceptions.” In response to the Taliban threat, Senator Ben Sasse (R., Neb.) urged Biden to ignore the withdrawal deadline. “Damn the deadline. The American people are not going to surrender our fellow citizens to the Taliban.

First Biden announced the death sentence for those who helped us during the war in Afghanistan by the premature, poorly planned withdrawl of US forces. Now, he has also acted as Executioner by announcing the date that public executions will start. He has also saved the Taliban the trouble of having to take US citizens as hostages. He has literally handed those stranded by the sudden withdrawl and inability to get out of the country over to the Taliban. Now the Taliban just needs to find them all. How will the Biden administration and his media accomplices spin the upcoming American hostage crisis and slaughter of our former Afghan allies?

I used to comment with tongue-in-cheek regarding the administration of the Sock Monkey president. He's setting up Americans to be butchered through his idiotic decisions. Of course, they will say that those who will be slaughtered, "chose" to remain. But, by God, choosing not to be inoculated is tantamount to insurrection against the all-knowing government and they have every right to restrict your liberties...tell me which government is the Taliban.

If the Taliban wants to talk numbers, the numbers I suggest the US send are: "1," standing for First Marine Division; "7," for Seventh Fleet; "10," for Tenth Special Forces Group, "56," for the 56th Fighter Wing, and last but not least, "82," for the 82nd Airborne Division. You're in a high-stakes poker game, Joe, and when you show that winning hand, you can sit back and watch them fold.

Biden is trying to look decisive. But don't buy it. Anyone who has common sense--and that excludes Xiden, Pelosi, Milley, Austin, and others--knows that true decisiveness means comprehending what evil is and being committed to containing it. This regime has no clue about evil. In fact, to them, evil is good, and good is evil. We are in serious trouble.

I hope the Never Trumpers at National Review are happy. Sure, he has completely surrendered to a bunch of terrorists and armed them with the finest weaponry on the planet. Sure, he has allowed them to take thousands of Americans hostage. Sure he has totally undermined any trust any of our allies had in the US. But at least he doesn't put out mean tweets. That's a fair trade, isn't it?

For all those Americans and our Afghan helpers who are in great danger now - behind enemy lines, so to speak - this pompous fool, Joe Biden, has declared himself their 'judge, jury and executioner'. There are many American and other patriots - who are not in Biden's circle - doing their very best to rescue those who are pleading for help and desperately want (and deserve) to get out of Afghanistan.

At the moment Biden has to say that all US troops will leave on or before August 31, as the Taliban have him by the short hairs, in that the Taliban could fire artillery shells and tactical artillery rockets into Kabul Airport at any time stopping all evacuation efforts and potentially killing or wounding a number of the US and NATO troops there. The Taliban know that, and in keeping with the traditions of that part of the world will probably try to negotiate a deal with Biden that will in reality be a huge bribe, camouflaged to the American people as Biden giving the suddenly good guy Taliban, who have killed and wounded thousands of American and NATO troops over the years, US foreign aid and other assistance. Notice that the vast majority of the people that the USA has evacuated are native Afghans some of who assisted US and NATO forces and a lot who did not, only a minority of the evacuated people are US citizens, the USA is thus stripping Afghanistan of its educated classes of people and also an undefined multitude of certain “vulnerable” special interest Afghans who are deemed politically useful to the US Democrats such as claimed members of the Afghan LGBTQ “community”. I would say watch the British forces, as if they leave in the next few days, the Americans will be out by August 31, if not the British will not leave. One thing is for sure the longer the USA stays in Afghanistan the larger the number of really really unidentified Afghan “refugees” who will be brought to the USA for the liberal Democrat aligned refugee resettlement organizations (NGO’s) to care for and resettle in the USA at taxpayers expense will grow exponentially.

Pure BS. Biden has struck down everything that Donald Trump has done for us out of spite. This deadline is simply his excuse for him and Barack to help a group of terrorists do what they do best, kill. This country developed a healthy hatred for muslim terrorists on September 11, 2001 and we should have followed through on our first impulse. Instead they are now part of the golden calf class that we are supposed to cater to. News you can use, Joe and all of the muslim America haters who are pulling your strings, the day of reckoning is coming and it won't be pretty. You are just wily enough to realize that you must take our freedoms and our weapons away in order to beat us but you are not smart enough or strong enough to actually do it.

Our leaders are obviously insane and we had better remove them before they do something really stupid. We need to let our fathers and grandfathers know that they didn't raise a bunch of pathetic losers.

The remarks Joe Biden gave earlier today on the Afghanistan fiasco may go down as one of the most embarrassing, humiliating speeches given by a President in modern United States history if not the entire history of this country. For starters, as per the norm, he did not look well as he read from the teleprompter, looking tired and winded after appearing five hours late for the so-called “press conference.” Secondly, and as my colleague Bonchie noted in his write-up, our collective intelligence was insulted as Biden not only lied about a call he had earlier today with G7 leaders, saying there was “strong agreement”

Tens of thousands of Afghans awaiting U.S. visas and thousands of American citizens are still stuck in Kabul, unable to find safe passage through frantic crowds, Taliban checkpoints and Afghan guards stationed outside the airport. Gunfire erupted outside of the north gate of Hamid Karzai International Airport on Monday, killing a number of Afghan security forces. American officials have repeatedly had to close the gates for extended periods, leading guards to turn away even U.S. passport holders. Multiple sources point to deteriorating conditions inside the airport, including lack of power and sanitation. And tension has emerged between American troops

On Tuesday, President Biden made it clear that he would not extend the evacuation of Americans and allies past his arbitrary August 31 deadline. And with the military’s need to pack up their own stuff and Fox News warning that the military would leave in roughly three days, it was obvious Biden was ready to completely abandon Americans to their fate with the Taliban. And of the big three broadcast networks, ABC’s World News Tonight was the only one to explicitly address what Biden’s plan would result in. While ABC wasn’t pulling punches, CBS Evening News seemed to either be holding out hope or trying to push the Biden administration’s gaslighting.

Joe Biden finally gave his big Afghanistan presser this afternoon. Arriving five hours late for the event, the President took the stage. His eyes were bloodshot and glazed over with his pace of speaking obviously labored as he began to robotically read the teleprompter. What then transpired was one of the most insulting, tone-deaf spectacles I’ve ever seen from a president. Instead of getting right into the crisis in Afghanistan, Biden inexcusably began the presser by plugging his “Build Back Better” agenda. No, I’m not kidding. It was absolutely surreal.

Nine Democratic “moderates” in the House are blocking consideration of Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending extravaganza because they don’t trust Nancy Pelosi to keep her promises. Of course, they won’t come out and say it like that. But that’s the real reason they have delayed consideration of the budget bill. The moderates don’t trust Pelosi to keep her word on passing the bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure bill that passed the Senate two weeks ago at the same time as the House agrees to consider the budget bill. It’s a delicate dance that Pelosi is trying to choreograph, with the radicals not trusting

Their $4.5 trillion stimulus package was in the bag with both Houses of Congress and all that was left was the vote. Now things have changed. Last night on Capitol Hill: Tensions rose as lawmakers returned for the evening session and a band of moderate lawmakers threatened to withhold their votes for the $3.5 trillion plan. They were demanding the House first approve a $1 trillion package of road, power grid, broadband and other infrastructure projects that’s already passed the Senate.

The WNBA champions apparently do have time for losers. Even as thousands of Americans have been left stranded in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, the Seattle Storm came to the White House for a photo-op with Joe Biden to celebrate their victory. The Storm are the first NBA or WNBA team to visit the White House since the Cleveland Cavaliers came in 2016. But their return to the White House came with an awkward, cringeworthy moment, when Biden, during a photo-op, bizarrely kneeled in front of the team as he showed off a jersey that read “Biden 46”. Was this simply a spur-of-the-moment decision? Or was Biden’s kneeling an intentional, symbolic gesture?
