A fair question: What did we just lose? Why should we care?
Afghanistan under Taliban rule was a hotbed of Islamic terror, responsible for terror training camps that led to hundreds of terrorist attacks around the globe, including the September 11th attack on New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C.
We lost thousands of lives in taking it from the Taliban and building it into a stable nation, an epic task that President Trump almost completed when he turned it over to Joe Biden. While everyone agreed that it was time for the U.S. to go, no one could have imagined that Joe Biden would just pack up and leave, abandoning millions of dollars worth of vehicles and weapons for the Taliban to recover and repair and then use against the Afghanistan government.
To add insult to injury, China has indicated they are ready to recognize the Taliban government, immediately making them both legitimate and eliminating any pressure the U.S. could have wielded in the region.
It’s a complete loss and epic failure, but only because of the Idiot-in-Chief, not the men and women who fought and died for our national security. The section below has some photos of what they did there, truly remarkable actions that are more than we ever asked or expected.
It is they who are the ones who lost today, their sacrifices that were made in vain because of Joe Biden’s utter incompetence.
