"A picture is worth a thousand words," they say.
And since I have no words for what is happening to our country, I thought it might be more impactful to just post some pictures and videos with captions.
Let's start here:
Here's Joe Biden a month ago in July 2021. This clip didn't age well.
This past weekend in Kabul, Afghanistan.
History repeats itself. The fall of Saigon, Vietnam in April 1975.
A press conference held by the militant leader of the Taliban in The Presidential Palace.
Biden takes no questions from reporters at press briefing, turns his back and walks out.
On Day 1 of his term, here's Joe Biden signing executive orders undoing everything Trump.
But now, Biden blames Trump for the failure in Afghanistan. Sorry, Joe. You can't have it both ways.
Joint Chiefs of Staff Army General Mark Milley defends the teaching of critical race theory to armed services personnel, while the U.S. pulls out and leaves those who helped us behind.
National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said, “It is certainly the case that the speed with which [Afghan} cities fell was much greater than anyone anticipated.” Do you think the military took their eye off the ball??
We have left behind our friends and allies who helped us. The panicked crowds fleeing the Taliban are bigger than in Saigon. Here, a person can be seen falling from the wheel well of a plane while desperately trying to flee.
"No one needs an AR-15." - Joe Biden
Heck no! Let's just leave the Taliban everything they need. $83 Billion dollars spent training the Afghan army, thousands of lives lost, so much blood spilled and, after 20 years, it all benefitted the Taliban.
Back in the USA, we see the official Twitter account of the Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
And here is the official Twitter account of a President of the United States.
"Americans play to win at all times. I wouldn't give a hoot and hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor ever lose a war." -Gen. George S. Patton
Sorry, General Patton. Your words don't hold water anymore. We've lost two wars in the last 45 years.
Pray for the people of Afghanistan who have been abandoned and left in chaos.
And pray that our US military personnel, embassy staff, Afghan allies and journalists can be evacuated before the terrorists take control of the airfield.
In the words of Thomas Paine, "These are the times that try men's souls."
