They squat on the roadside, feet filthy in broken sandals, eyes empty, faces averted. Their belongings are few. Most were abandoned on their long flight from fear.

The scenes you see these days on TV of refugees in Afghanistan or Syria or anywhere convulsed by war are truly awful.

War is terrible, and has been since the first time someone picked up a stick and bashed someone else over the head with it. But - it still doesn't mean we have any obligation to bring thousands of those impacted by it here, or to spend forever garrisoning some godforsaken toilet like Afghanistan to keep the tribal barbarians from killing each other. Trump was right to get us out. Xiden could have looked like a hero had he followed Trump's plan, instead of ditching it simply because Orange Man Bad. Now, he is responsible for every death and every atrocity, because he and his merry band of morons knew better.

I am starting to take exception to such adjectives as “heartless” and “coward” when referring to Xiden. To me, those terms imply a level of moral character, albeit flawed and wanting. But the character I see in Xiden is on a whole new (lower) level. In MY mind, he is approaching madness, not unlike Hitler and/or Stalin, and others. It seems he is finding a perverse pleasure and enjoyment in controlling the unspeakable fates of so many people. That is not cowardly or heartless. That is psychopathic.

We are seeing that the supply of “refugees” in the world who would like to come to the USA is endless. If the USA were to bring every self identified foreign “refugee” who comes into contact with Americans to the USA, it would not be long before the USA would be a very different country indeed, after importing the good and the bad from every undeveloped or developing country that will also bring very different cultures into the USA in great numbers, some of them contrary to the basic tenets of the US Constitution. At the moment it is clear that the leftist and socialist Democrats are pleased as punch to bring unlimited numbers of diverse “refugees” into the USA who they believe will permanently change the politics and the future voter demographics of the country in the years ahead to the great favor of the leftist and socialist Democrats.

Afghanistan is one country in the world that can legitimately hate America after this catastrophe is over and nobody can blame them. The US Government needed them, recruited them, used them and then left them to die. They would have been better off if we had never set foot in the country.

I think the aftermath of Afghanistan will be much worse than Vietnam. The Taliban and assorted terror groups will be free to cause trouble all over the world and create new refugees for years on end.

Agree, #3...there aren't enough words in any Thesaurus to describe the depth of this man's depravity and callousness. There's a huge black hole inside him that for most of us houses a soul, keeping us incapable of such heartlessness to other human beings. This isn't a result of his age and senility, it just reveals to the world what he has always been deep down...a psychopath (well disguised for years), as you said.

I agree with #8. The North Vietnamese just wanted us out of the country in the same manner they didn't want the French there. After we left they then repelled the Chinese who tried their own occupation. Taliban, on the other hand, want us out of Afghanistan so that they can get back to business after a 20-year hiatus - that business being terrorism for fun and profit.

I am in agreement with #2 and #4. The difference no one notes between the Afghans of today and the Vietnamese in 1975 is that the Afghans neglected their obligation to defend themselves, their families and their country by stacking arms and running to the airport. Worse, the force threatening them was inferior in every way but the will to carry weapons and apparently commit violence. If the Afghans are angry with anyone for their new government, they can begin to look in the mirror, and ruminate over the "security force" that melted away after stacking arms, and the government that flew out early after stuffing suitcases with US cash. Twenty years, $6.7 TRILLION, and 3000 military lives. Where do we get a refund on that purchase? The lies didn't start with Biden, either. For 20 years it was Afghan peril, surge, and declare all was well. The facts, it is emerging, were much different, starting with the oversupplied "make work" security forces that we were believed attained some level of competence, along with its leadership. I wouldn't trust an Afghan general to supervise a road liter crew, nor would I trust the crew. While we read these propaganda, sad story pieces, let's remember a few things: 1) The Afghans were the home team with supposedly the most to lose with the return of the Taliban or ISIS or any other fundamentalist Muslim cult. They failed themselves. 2) We were THEIR allies, supposedly supporting their efforts to reform a 7th Century society. We owe them nothing at this point for their "allegiance" - on display at the airport as they rush to bug out.

Now that Joe Biden has handled the Afghan evacuation crisis with such skill, his vice president is off in Asia this week to offer her views on the future of the Indo-Pacific region that’s been on no one’s mind recently. Apparently, Kamala Harris is now ready to move on from the deadly debacle of Biden’s premature Afghan troop withdrawal, his belated troop redeployment there, and the resulting chaotic evacuation effort of thousands who should have been long gone by now.

Look, very few Americans want Americans to keep fighting in Afghanistan. Twenty years – 19 of them mission creep — is more than enough time to do it, if you can. But there’s withdrawing, and then there is fleeing. The American president is fleeing. Like every president, Joe Biden has numerous problems. Many, in fact, are of his own making. Like withdrawing during the peak Afghan fighting season, instead of waiting for winter. With Afghanistan well on the way to falling quickly to the Taliban and a record number of illegals breaching our southern border, Joe Biden has gone on vacation. Literally. The pressure

Something city people notice when they move to a small town is the almost palpable trust local folks display toward each other. Walk up to a stranger in a large city and they pull back, wary of your purpose. Trust used to be the national default position, too.

When I began in journalism, these hot, muggy days of mid-summer were considered a dead time for news. No social media. No “View.” No Donald Trump. It was so long ago that Joe Biden wasn’t even in the Senate and he didn’t have his amazingly white caps. [Snip] Spare summer time, even in the evening, was spent in, on, or near water – swimming, water-skiing, or thinking about it. Everyone did that.

Joe Biden came through again for Vladimir Putin, erasing years of bipartisan U.S. objections to his dream natural gas pipeline to Europe beneath the Baltic Sea.

Joe Biden reaches the six-month mark of his presidency in a few days. It just seems much longer. So, how’s the old guy doing barely one-eighth of the way through a 1,461-day term? Coming after the tumultuous 1,461-day term that preceded this, Biden would like things to slow down considerably. Perhaps even be boring. Anything to get through these grimace-causing public appearances of his, where he gets lost while reading his written text or simply goes silent for 25 seconds of mental rebooting.

Joe Biden is quietly implementing a drastic, dangerous, and many would argue naïve change in foreign policy toward recalcitrant states such as Iran and Russia. As part of a new approach to sanctions, built more around time-consuming collaboration and consultation with allies, Biden is already easing some existing strictures with no matching quid pro quos. Some Iranians have already been removed from Treasury sanction lists with no new commitments to negotiate. Relieving those sanctions unilaterally is intended by the Democrat president as a sign of goodwill and allied collaboration. Biden clearly hopes that will lead to a

During an address to the nation Thursday evening, President Biden vowed to “hunt down” the terrorists behind the bombings at the Kabul airport and said the U.S. military will continue to evacuate American citizens and allies despite the disruption. Biden spoke hours after two bombs were detonated outside the Hamid Karzai Airport in Kabul. One suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device at the airport’s central Abbey gate, killing at least twelve American troops and wounding 15 others. A second bomber detonated his device outside the Baron Hotel, near the airport’s perimeter. It remains unclear whether any Americans were killed in that blast.

"Plaintiffs and their fellow law enforcement officers risked their lives to defend the Capitol from a violent, mass attack — an attack provoked, aided, and joined by Defendants in an unlawful effort to use force, intimidation, and threats to prevent Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 Presidential election," says the lawsuit

One of the most effective ways for the MSM to shut down an inquiry into misconduct is to say it is all a conspiracy theory. Besides avoiding an unwanted discussion, the charge also invites scrutiny of the "theorist" instead of the issue itself. Notice how quickly some even start off saying something like "I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but..." Expecting their reaction, we have become almost trained to do this. But are there really no big conspiracies? It has been claimed that the phrase "conspiracy theory" was invented by the government to discourage the questioning of official explanations for important events, especially the JFK assassination.

In a move no one can grasp, U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders, and Afghan allies, believing the Taliban would allow them to enter the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport. Lawmakers and military officials are outraged. The insane move was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Kabul by the August 31 deadline. It also came as the Biden administration began relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport. ISIS-K has since set up forces around the soon-to-be-renamed Hamid Karzai International Airport.

At least 10 US service members have been killed and another three injured in two suicide bombing attacks outside Kabul airport Thursday, according to US officials. Pentagon press secretary John Kirby confirmed earlier that US troops had been killed but did not disclose the number. “A number of US service members were killed in today’s complex attack at Kabul airport. A number of others are being treated for wounds. We also know that a number of Afghans fell victim to this heinous attack,” he said. Initial estimates vary, but an Afghan health official told the New York Times that at least 40 people had been killed and 120 injured.
