Much of the nation knew that this was coming, thanks in a small part to the glut of military leaders who looked to warn us. Well, to be honest, everybody knew it was coming except for Joe Biden. It was only a month ago that Biden said it was unlikely the Taliban would take over the entire country. Biden Afghanistan plan unravels
Joe Biden’s advancing of the troop withdrawal timeline in Afghanistan is turning out to be an unmitigated disaster, and it doesn’t appear as though there is anything that can be done to hedge that bet.
First and foremost, there is the news that the ever-awful Taliban could soon take the entire country over.
Afghanistan’s capital city and the seat of its government, Kabul, could come under pressure from the Taliban in as little as 30 days and fall to the extremist group within 90 days, a U.S. official told CBS News’ David Martin.
The Taliban now controls 65 percent of Afghanistan, according to European officials. A number of major provincial capitals have fallen to the group over the past week.
But despite the group’s rapid gains — which have shocked the Afghan government and its allies — U.S. President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he did not regret his decision to withdraw American troops.
As they progress, disturbing reports have surfaced, suggesting that the Taliban is simply executing surrendered soldiers – as if we needed another reason to find them despicable on every level.
Now, a dire warning has emerged from the US Embassy, Americans need to get the heck out ASAP.
The US Embassy in Kabul again urged American citizens to leave Afghanistan “immediately” amid rapid Taliban gains in the country.
It is the second such security alert in less than a week urging the immediate departure of US citizens.
“The U.S. Embassy urges U.S. citizens to leave Afghanistan immediately using available commercial flight options,” the embassy said Thursday, noting that Americans who cannot afford to purchase airline tickets should contact the embassy “for information regarding a repatriation loan.”
The embassy issued its alert as the Taliban continued its assault, seizing major cities and capitols, dealing blow after blow to the Afghan government, its army and the US and its allies who trained Afghan forces.
The State Department announced 3,000 plus troops will be going into Afghanistan to help pull out the people in our embassy:
“The military will be there to help effect an orderly and a safe reduction in our personnel. I do expect that the military will help with these relocation operations but as we know, Hamid Karzai International Airport does remain open, commercial flights continue to take off and land at the airport. So the military is not the only way in or out of Afghanistan,”
And at the same time, Biden is begging the Taliban not to hurt the U.S. Embassy.
With his awfully planned evacuation of Afghanistan, Biden is confirming the words of Obama-Biden Defense Secretary Robert Gates that Joe Biden has been “wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
If you need some more proof that Biden is clueless, it was just a few weeks ago on July 8th when Dementia Joe said during a press conference, “So the question now is, where do they go from here? That — the jury is still out. But the likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.”
Below is a video of President Biden making that statement.
