So far your response to this has been "Trump!" and "We deserve this!"

It is? Where did i mention Trump? Where?

From the Wall Street Journal:

"Biden overruled his top military commanders--Gen. Frank McKenzie, Gen. Austin Scott Miller, and Gen. Mark Milley--who recommended the US keep 2500 troops in Afghanistan while stepping up diplomacy to try to cement a peace agreement."

The moment they pulled the intelligence and armed support, the Afghan army collapsed. The military literally drove our equipment to Iran, who will now have our tech.

Same guy who told Obama not to take out bin Laden.

Oh look! You’re quoting MSM again…later you’ll bash it for saying something you dislike

In the current events thread where this discussion started. All you wanted to talk about was Syria and Trump.

Apparently, Afghan troops deserted the moment we pulled out intelligence and air support. They lost all logistics. Once the Taliban discovered this, everything fell apart.

So in a different thread?

How about we focus on the cost of this project and what it got us?

Like the hundred other times you said this exact thing, there are good reporters out there and bad ones, mitch, so yeah, I might point out a bad take, not one that's actually discussing the circumstances of what happened.

Yes, in a different thread about this exact topic.

Focus on whatever you want. The topic right now is the Taliban just took over Afghanistan because of one of the most spectacular failures of an American president ever.

Yes, this was his call. It was his decision. He said this wouldn't happen. And now with one of the biggest foreign policy disasters in my lifetime, he's on vacation and won't answer any questions.

Mitch if trump was the president right now, he'd rightly be thrown under the bus by western politicians and media.

Biden is in charge, doesn't mater what Trump did or didn't right now.

As for the "terrible return", this wasn't Iraq. Do you not remember the circumstances that brought about the Afghanistan war?

America can't afford a perpetual sham war. They only went into Afghanistan to prep for the Iraq war, the real price, and no President since has wanted to soil their legacy by being responsible for the inevitable mess in Afghanistan. Alzheimer Joe it is. He won't care.
