It has been discovered that with a dull urban population, all formed under a mechanical system of State education, a suggestion or command, however senseless and unreasoned, will be obeyed if it be sufficiently repeated.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Men and Women, Boys and Girls, Americans and our Allies, this is what the Democrats installed as the “Leader of the Free World.”
Yep! I’m sad and sickened to say it, but the Biden Administration’s response to Putin’s forces attacking Ukraine was to request that Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy evacuate Kyiv and possibly the country.
Happily for the Ukrainian people, they have an actual leader. His response to the Biden Admistration’s cowardice was to tell them that he needed ammo – specifically, anti-tank ammunition – not a ride.
It’s truly disgusting that President Zelenskyy used to be a professional comedian but it’s Biden who the joke.
Well 🙁 As I said, I think Putin is likely to win. Certainly, from the sound of it, there’s nobody with the means to do so outside of Ukraine that’s going to prevent him from doing so.
So, Russia or Nazis running Ukraine? That’s the question before the world and the question the Democrats sorely want everyone to ignore. Though, for the sake of accuracy, I suppose I should call the strongest military and political power base in Ukraine, The Azov “Movement”, Neo-Nazis since they’re not still-existent members of the Third Reich.
But then, the Democrats have been to some extent tied up with the Neo-Nazis of Ukraine since 2014 when they 1st reared their heads to “put down” the Pro-Russian Separatists in the Donbas province of Ukraine. Hence, this is to be expected, because it’s always OK to fund a Nazi if they’re your Nazi.
The above is the Gods’ honest truth. Biden is not responsible for the fiasco of our pull-out from Afghanistan and the Taliban’s resumption of control of that region; all the Democrats who, through voting or other means, installed that senile, deranged fool as POTUS are.
It was to anyone with any knowledge of the peoples of that region of shitholes a foregone conclusion that the moment the leaders of the Taliban knew that President Trump was forced from office they would abandon any semblance of complying with the terms of the change of power and retake Afghanistan by swift and overwhelming force. It was similarly a foregone conclusion that the Taliban would immediately commit various and sundry atrocities as part of this reconquista of the Graveyard of Empires. President Trump – the man, not any policies or plans set in place through the guidance of his cabinet – was the sole force holding the Taliban in check during this changeover.
Besides, how can we hold Biden responsible for anything when it’s so blatantly obvious that he’s mentally incompetent and not really involved in the actual duties of the President?
But… Some Simple Context
Firstly, the Taliban retaking control of Afghanistan was going to happen and was going to happen now regardless of who is POTUS. President Trump’s team already negotiated that as part of the President’s pledge to the American people to end our “Forever Wars.” So, Biden can’t be held responsible for any of that.
Secondly, some amount of atrocities were always going to be part of that regime change. Under President Trump, they would have been more subdued and handled less publicly, and some might have been delayed until the end of Trump’s second term, but they were always going to happen. So, again, Biden can’t be held responsible for any of that Nobody can; that sort of thing is part of the Afghans’ culture.
Third and finally, the fiasco that has been our pullout from Kabul is neither strange nor unexpected, given how fast Afghanistan “fell” to the Taliban. Nothing within that context is particularly odd or extreme. It looks very much like the other times the US military and intelligence apparatuses have had to withdraw from a theater with some level of haste. So too, to our shame, is the lack of support and extraction for our in-theater, indigenous assets.
So no. I don’t, and I don’t believe anyone should hold Biden responsible for what is happening in Afghanistan right now any more than I would hold him responsible for drooling on- or soiling himself. One and all need to show a certain level of respect to the aged and mentally infirm. Also, as I’ve written above, I don’t see that much to hold anyone accountable for in this situation.
The only ones I feel are responsible for this debacle are those who placed Biden in office. And, even then, I can’t see where they’re responsible for anything other than the specific timing of it and the overtness of the purge going on now in Afghanistan.
Damn! Look at all those racist countries out there past America’s borders. They all require a photo ID in order to vote. Hellfire! Some, e.g., India and Iraq, even physically mark voters after they cast their ballots.
Let’s face it; if requiring Voter ID is racist, as the Dems keep claiming, then these are a bunch of racist countries. Of course, you’ll never hear a Dem or likely Dem voter claim these countries are racist. Much like so many other “racially charged” things, the Dems only believe it’s wrong if America does it.
And there in is the true sadness of the world. Khruschchev’s long game was spot on, despite decades and decades, and failed nation after failed nation to prove that neither Communism nor Socialism can truly work at the national scale. Yet it’s a damnable fact that, since 1960, various Democrats and other Leftists have been incrementally nudging America toward that failure of a socio-economic-political system.
