Alert Americans know President Joe Biden didn't end the Afghanistan War. It ended in 2019 when Trump and Afghanistan forces agreed to stop fighting.

The war is over. Our military drew up a plan to withdraw May 1. Kabul was to be the main people's evacuation site with Bagram being secondary. Sensitive military equipment was to be removed at Bagram. All sides agreed and signed it.

With hatred of everything Trump, Biden discarded the signed agreement, chose a later date, began an unplanned exit that turned nasty and produced the first 13 U.S. deaths in two years without getting everyone out.

JOE BIDEN is a disgusting, unqualified, delusional, demented, racist, who hates African-Americans and Hispanics! He is a card packing KKK sympathizer who was best friends with the likes of Senator James Eastland, Senator John Stennis, Senator Robert Byrd, Senator J.W. Fulbright, Senator Strom Thurmond, and Senator Lyndon B. Johnson, all straight up, stone cold RACISTS and many with KKK TIES!

Senator Byrd was the Grand Cyclops of the KLAN and was JOE Biden's mentor! Joe Biden gave the eulogy at Byrd's funeral. He caused many young BLACK AMERICANS to be thrown in prison unporportionately, to other demographics committing the same crimes. He called us a "Jungle Society" of people who he did not want going to school with Beau and Hunter Biden! He called African-Americans a MONOLITHIC group of people who tended to think alike, and vote alike! He also said he had.only seen one clean-cut, nice looking, educated, well spoken BLACK MAN in his life and that was Barack Obama!

This Clown was in such a hurry to get to a microphone on September 11, that he was willimg to walk through a river of American blood to do it at all cost! So he ran out of Afghanistan, leaving thousands of Americans, their children, women folks, Allies, and at risk Afghans who helped American military people for twenty years for the promise that they would be taken care when the war was over! Joe left them behind to be killed, and their women to be given as Sex Slave Brides to ISIS, & Teliban soldiers!

What kind of real American Leader will leave his people behind to die, as payment for a quick lie told on September 11, in a political photo opt? Who could summon enough gall to be that low? My CO at Fort Bliss before I was sent to Vietnam won the Silver Star, for packing a dead BLACK soldier on his BACK for miles and miles near Plaiku, during the 1968 TET Offensive, because he and that point man was cut off from their main unit! The point man was hit by a VC sniper! My CO was a WHITE man who put his own life on the line because he told that soldier when he prodded the Lieutenant to save hisself and leave him. The Lieutenant told his man, " We both getting the hell out of here, or we both DIE HERE, you choose!"

Now that is my kind.of leader, and he was my leader at Fort Bliss, I just did not know he was a decorated hero, until a decorated Black E-6 who served with the Big Red One Infantry told me the whole story, because I was bad- mouthing my CO! Afterwards I felt like dirt! These are the kind of people we have manning the front line for this nation! There is no way I will pick, nor support another ROGUE nation like CHINA, over my country, or my military! Lieutenant Bareby was not a big strapping man, he was about 5'8" and look good in his uniform! How he packed a man, on his BACK, hiding in the day and navigating his way back to American lines at night is beyond me, but he did! His buddy died, but he was not LEFT behind! He was sent home to his family for burial instead of being mutilated by the Viet Cong! To bad we don't have a man like MY CO in the White House, instead of a Low-Life with American blood on his hands in the name of politics!

Paula Flinn

You are so wrong to do this, Charles Douglas. You, who preach the Bible to everyone which encourages you and others to find the good in people. And, there is a lot of good in President Biden.

Just today, over 200 Americans are flying to Doha, Qatar as part of the evacuation from Afghanistan. Also, many Afghans fleeing the Taliban are escaping to Pakistan.

Now that American soldiers are out of Afghanistan, ,President Biden has saved many soldiers and Afghan lives. There were no good choices. It was withdraw and leave, or escalate the war there. It wasn’t pretty, but President Biden was right to get the U.S. Military out of Afghanistan. 20 years of a foreign war in the Middle East is long enough.

Gary Miller

Paula > While the Biden State Department refuses to let planes chartered by Glenn Beck, full of US citizens and Aftgans. leave. Paula are you as corrupt as your president?

Charles Douglas

If there is any good is Joe China, ....XI JINPING and Vladimir Putin must be the only ones who can see it! I can't see it, and I stand by what I posted X three! It must be easy to let others take the rap for stupidity, but I don't roll that way! Joe China is no better than a slimy predator who goes around hurting people, or using others to his advantage!

You don't leave AMERICANS IN A WAR ZONE JUST TO EXIT BY WALKING IN THEIR BLOOD TO GO MAKE SELFISH POLITICAL POINTS ON SEPTEMBER 11. If that means you have to fight, THEN [censored][censored] it lets fight, But you don't turn tails and run out on your own people like Joe did! It surprises me that an individual who WHUPPED popcorn, and wants to take Trump behind the Gym is such a coward! I would not leave any American to the fate Joe Biden did! If I had to GO into every by-way or hiding place of Afghanistan to get them,......then so be it, BUT I WOULD NOT LEAVE THEM BEHIND!

Gary Miller

Paula > That plane only carried 12 Americans. Americans that were left behind by Biden to escape any way they could..

Gary Miller

Bidens first seven months were bad. Starting with his attacks on our energy industry. Then turning our southern border into a disaster zone and spreading Covid 19 across the nation. Turning Afghanistan into the worst foreign policy blunder in US history. His inflation, caused by printed spending, is a sneaky tax on consumers that creates more taxes on consumers. Crime is out of control in Democrat cities? What’s next Joe? You’ll have to work harder to be any worse.

George Croix

All terribly true, and even factual, Gary.

But, so what......

Time to recognize the folks who voted for Joe, my President, don't CARE what a total loser the last 7 months have been for anything other than desired dependency and being laughed at by enemies. They'd have voted for anything with a pulse, or, considering some of their voting base, without one, Not Trump. ABT! That's our man...!! No...can't say that....try gender neutral entity identifying as the carbon based being of their choice...oh, wait...carbon bad....now what...?

For gosh sake, the anti-Trump vote was poised to vote for our first Communist president, until the fix got in and everybody dropped out to toss Bernie under the same bus where Hillary went to put Obama in as candidate.

Shucks, even I held my nose to vote for Trump the person, doing so because I liked the policies....

But then, my side ended up behind when the vote counting stopped...can't win 'em all....

George Croix

Ex-Pres. Trump is gone.

Joe Biden is my President.

For now...until he resigns, or can no longer read notes....then, things get even worse...

Deal with the problem at hand, as wishing won't change it.

We have Americans being held hostage (that's the definition of want to leave, but not allowed to....) by BOTH the Taliban and the US Dept. of State playing games about "security", as if hundreds of thousands pouring across the southern border is "secure".

We have a President, my President, who refuses to even take non-pre-screened questions about that, much less actually facilitate correcting it, instead, "pivoting" back to other issues, admittedly, legion in number, and often self-inflicted....very often.....

If you believe in prayer, pray for him or whomever is actually pulling the strings to get their head out of their backsides and stop being dictated to by 12th century holdovers.

I'd say include Blinken, Sec. of State, but I gave up on that guy yesterday when he was discussing the newly installed Taliban Government, and lamented, actually verbally expressed displeasure, that said governing body was all male...that there were no women included...!!??!!???

What the heck can ya say about that....except, it's easy to tell how he got the job...

Disconnected much?

Lets ask what must be his advisors, Wynken and Nod....

George Croix

ps:

Afghanistan is, as it always has been, a tar baby for all who get involved there.

Problem is, this is the 21st century, where even a 12th century based people can spread out and cause trouble all over anywhere.

We still have military presence in countries that are NOT living under a belief system that rewards killing "infidels', and who do not stand in the streets cheering our collective demise, and which were not involved in dropping buildings in the middle of our largest city.

We had ZERO casualties in the many months leading up to withdrawal, finally....

Now, we have armed these mortal enemies of ours, with our arms, and run tail-between-legs and left our citizens behind.

WAS that the right thing to do....?

i fear we shall find out it was not.......

Charles Douglas

Mr. Miller> You bought this Op-ed on to the house, let me tell you. I'm just happy to know we still have some pure blooded Americans loyal to this country, and that flag we depend on! That flag represents greatness to me which needs protecting, because there may never be another America!

It is people like you, on this forum, and around this nation who are making it difficult for the radicals to destroy it! Our freedoms here in America are never bought and paid for, but are on the installment plan, being paid for by grateful, brave, Americans in every generation to preserve them for the upcoming generation! I see this kind of commitment from Americans all over this nation, ready to go down fighting for something good, instead of dividing us with "SLAVE TALK" every five minutes! Keep doing what you do, because you do it well my friend!

Gary Miller

MR Douglas > you hold me too high. I do wish I could sit down to a meeting with you. Steak and beer on me.

Gary Miller

Does anyone in this forum think Biden lies? I think if I asked him what color his shoes were he would look at his brown pair and tell me they were blue. He proved he lies. Said he would not leave Aftganistan until every American wanting out was out. Then claimed 90% out was success. He told us if we got vaxed we could stop wearing a face mask. He was vaxed but still wears a mask and tells all vaccinated citizens they should wear one or two masks.

George Croix

Gary, everyone lies. Even the most pious married man has been faced with that Certified Time To Lie question “Honey, do these jeans make my rear look big…”….

Problems arise when just being incorrect is called lying, or when you know the lie will cause harm to others and do it anyway.

Then there’s the oft encountered change context and call it a lie, which, of course, makes the accuser the actual liar….a common trait among Marxists and such…

Our President was considered something of a jovial gaff prone, story telling buffoon when he was VP. So, folks lied to themselves that he wasn’t and now he’s President.

No sense cussing it. Just like athletes foot, he’s here for a while and we have to live with this mess until he’s gone….

That should be first half next year, give or take a bit, before he gives it up….first they have to find the MIA VP…..

Me, I hope my President sticks it out and remembers what unite means and starts doing some of it and maybe gives Americans hostage in Afghanistan more time and energy than campaigning in California for that Governor OK For Me But Not For Thee.

I figure any of the replacements mid term in the line of succession would be much worse….

Gary Miller

Getting rid of Biden could be worse than letting him keep screwing up. His VP was picked because she would not be prefered. Next in line would be the real booby prize, Queen Pelosi. With those choices Biden looks to be the best we can expect until 2024. Until then be patient, stay motivated and registered.

Carlos Ponce

They will both leave.

Gary Miller

A considered thought. Obama chose Biden as his VP because Obama wanted someone so corrupt they couldn't blow the whistle on him. Obama was aware Biden had spent 30+ years selling his vote to the highest bidding lobbyist, getting rich on corruption.

Gary Miller

George > I think of him more like jocky itch. WE can't wait for him to go away.

Gary Miller

Biden Lied. Said Taliban couldn't take over Afganistan.

John Dupla

talk about liars, look at he MANY ones told by Trump. He actually bragged about grabbing female's private parts and paid off sexual favors. To his follower's, ACHTUNG

Carlos Ponce

It wasn't bragging, it was locker room talk.Men do that. John Dupla wouldn't know. [whistling]

John Dupla, what about Tara Reade?

Gary Miller

John > In listening to Trump for five years I've yet to identify a single lie. I do remember hundreds of times he disagreed with the MSM and they said that was lying. If disagreeing with me MSM is lying the majority of Americans are liers. Join the majority John and admit the MSM are America's liers.

Paula Flinn

Well, your candor is refreshing, Gary Miller, but it’s hard to believe that you have not heard the ex-president tell a lie, when for the last 5 years he has either blatantly told lies or hidden the truth everyday. Just the fact that he is the only President who has hidden his previous tax returns from Congress and the people, for years, should be a clue that he is hiding suspected corruption and criminality.

The amount of turnover Trump had in his Administration should give you an idea of how dissatisfied people were with him, and how tired they were with putting up with his behavior and lies. Some compromised their reputations just to stay with him for a short while.

Yes, the MSM did go after Trump for all the things that he said and did, and for all the corrupt deals he he has made in the past, even with money from other countries. The Department of Justice knows more about him and the liars and criminals in his Administration, and new evidence about his criminal behavior is surfacing everyday. Absent the pardons he granted, they would be serving their time like his lawyer, Michael Cohen, who testified under oath, is.

The Big Lie is about the 2020 election, which Trump tried to steal by calling for recounts, calling for the AG in Georgia to find over 11,000 votes for him, and calling for the January 6th attack on the Capitol Building where the electoral votes were being certified. With cries of “Hang Pence,” and “Get Pelosi,” and assaulting the Capitol Police, the mob, influenced by Trump and others, tried to overturn the will of the people and our Democracy. All based on a Trump Big Lie.

All conservatives should have gotten a clue when earlier they shut down the Trump Foundation and told the family that they could not have another one. It’s what they do when someone steals money from his own foundation to pay for personal things.

The majority of people know Trump is the biggest liar. It’s one of the reasons that he lost the election.

Carlos Ponce

"The majority of people know Trump is the biggest liar. " No, Paula. The majority of people know that is a false narrative perpetrated by the Leftist media, politicians and pundits. Looking at the "list of lies" they post only someone lacking mental capacity would believe tat bullschiff.

Ed Buckner

Right you are, Ms. Flinn--not that any of the brainwashed here will admit it, even partially.

Gary Miller

Paula > You need to hang out with a better class of people.

George Croix

You right, John...the current President didn't brag about molesting the females who accused him, even though that took place while he was a n elected official Senator ...

Maybe those videos of hair sniffing of teenage girls and neck rubbing of other men's wives is just a Senator thing, like drowning them in cars then going on to 40 more years as the 'Lion of the Senate'....

Nazis? Really?

Keyboard commando....

Carlos Ponce

And when in office, making comments about a 12 year old girl:

"I love those barrettes in your hair, man. I tell you what, look at her, she looks like she's 19 years old, sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed." PERVERT!

Jim Forsythe

Ivanka sitting on her dad’s lap, as they both sit on a statue of parrots having sex.

George Croix

That's low rent, Jim. I'd never have expected such from you...

Jim Forsythe

Just as you were upset with the statue thing, others do not like that some take the small complement to a small girl, and try and make it look like Biden is a pedophile. Are you upset because of the birds or because the Trumps were setting on it? No where did I say a bad thing about this activity of just setting, but you took it as something it was not. So what if the bird were or not partaking in that activity, noting would be wrong with the Trumps just setting on it, even if they were.

Carlos Ponce

Jim considers Biden's remarks a "compliment"? Ewwwwww

George Croix

Don't sound like a politician, Jim.

There are too many of them already......

You may recall we had a saying that one 'aw stuff' cancelled out 1000 'attaboys'....

999 attaboys to go...get on it.....

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, it looks like you mistook what The Trump did as something wrong. Otherwise why would you jump to the conclusion that what was posted, was Trump doing something wrong. Did you even look at the picture? if you had, it is a day with the Trumps.

I could have posted the many things that Trump has done, but chose not to.

This look at what Biden said about Margaret Catherine. I love those barrettes in your hair, nothing wrong with that, unless you try and project something that is not there.

Next, I tell you what, look at her, she looks like she's 19 years old, Biden was saying she was well behaved and her parent's have done a good job with her.

Next, sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed, telling her parent's they have done a good job, that she is well behaved and they should be proud. If you have ever been to a event like this with a 6 or 7 year old, you know how hard it is for the small one's to be still and Margaret Catherine did a great job.

If you find Biden's commit is wrong, please post the part of Biden's statement that was wrong.

Joe China is a "certified Freak" seven days a week! I could tell a story he told about the WHITE HAIRS on his legs....and his people was scattering & running about trying to get him off the mic,......but like the man said ...."IT IS LOW RENT!" Then also, Joe is doing such a good job for Trump Diesel's return...I feel I do owe him something for that! So I will refrain from stating something he said which was pure "freaky-deaky." He confirmed something I knew though,...that is whenever you find a man with his checkered past, ...you should investigate the FREAKY PATHS....he might have taken!!!!! He & his "Dixiecrats" friends probably could tell some wild "freaky"stories about things that went on back then at initiations and things like that! Lololo.

Ed Buckner

None so blind as he who will not see. Trump negotiates with Taliban, ignoring the government of Afghanistan and securing the release of 5,000 prisoners--some of them terrorists, ignores the substantial violations of the agreement by the Taliban. And THEN you blame Biden and credit Trump? Sheesh.

Ted Gillis

Anybody remember the Kurds?

Paula Flinn

All of this just emphasizes how divided we are as a country. It would be great if we could be sure that our leaders were not corrupt and that they didn’t lie to us or hide the truth. Honestly, I think we would have been much better off with Sen. Bernie Sanders as President. He has held the same values for many years. But some people are (and were) so afraid of the “S word,” and Universal Healthcare.

Ed Buckner

[thumbup][smile]

Carlos Ponce

Biden is uniting the country - against him and the other Liberals. Even though the polls are heavily padded to reflect Liberal ideology, Biden now has a has a higher disapproval rating than approval. Depending on the poll his disapproval has a double digit lead over his approval. Adjusted for reality - it's much worse for Biden and his Liberal policy.

Jim Forsythe

The last few presidents had poll numbers that were in the low 40s, but some recovered enough to be re-elected. Why, because by the end of the their first term, the improving economy was the reason. This happen with Reagan, Clinton and Obama.

In 2024, it looks like we may brake another record for the number of people voting. Just like the last few years, the Independent voter will be the determining factor.

Carlos Ponce

All polls are padded to make the Left look better than they are, the Right to look worse. Check the demographics.

George Croix

Ex-professor Smith certainly agrees with that, PF.

The C, M, and S prefix governing philosophies having worked out so well that the biggest advocates in this country for them, stay in this country themselves....

Go figure....

George Laiacona

If Trump ended George Bush’s 20 years war, then why was there still thousands of troops and millions of dollars worth of war machines still there in 2021? This war was a bad mistake to begin with. After 20 years it’s taken guts to end it. Remember Vietnam?

Gary Miller

The second world war is long ended but the US still has Billions of $ equipment and thousands of military in Germany and Japan. There was never an exit plan because both countries desired or agreed for us to stay. When Trump and the Afgains ended their war they wanted the US to leave. An exit plan, ignored by Biden, was negotiated, agreed to and signed. The afgan war was over before Biden was nominated.

Carlos Ponce

Correct Gary Miller. The agreement the Trump administration had with the Taliban had the United States keeping Joint base Bagram just like United States keeps and maintains bases in Japan and Germany. "We would have had Bagram open because we always intended to keep it." ""We should have sent the people out very safely, and we would have had Bagram open. That was always going to be — we should have kept Bagram because Bagram is between China. It has total access to China, Iran, and Afghanistan. And I guess they didn't realize that they abandoned it," President Donald Trump told Lisa Boothe on her podcast, The Truth with Lisa Boothe.

Bidenistas falsely reported the equipment was not functional. But as the Taliban flew aircraft from Bagram, General Milley had to back track.

George Laiacona

After 43 comments it looks like you have gone off into a tangent. The starting comments were concerning how Trump supposedly ended the 20 year war. That subject changed drastically. This looks like the place to express opinions that have absolutely nothing to do with the headline. Remember January 6th!

Carlos Ponce

We'll remember the "Summer of Love" 2020 when Liberals sanctioned, attacking police, killing, looting, arson calling it a "peaceful protest". Many of the shopkeepers who lost their livelihood will remember the Liberal/Democrat response to their plight.

Ted Gillis

If there was this great exit plan Gary, why were troops still there when Biden took over?

Gary Miller

Ted > You are not stupid enough to ask so dumb a question. It always take time to remove a winning army from a defeated country. The US exit was negotiated, agreed to and signed. Like a treaty. Biden violated the signed agreement.

Carlos Ponce

The agreement was to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan on May 1, 2021., not January, Ted.

The agreement was to keep and maintain a US presence at Joint Base Bagram. The US had 6 military bases in Afghanistan. The agreement stated:

"2) The United States, its allies, and the Coalition will withdraw all their forces from five (5) military bases."

https://www.state.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Agreement-For-Bringing-Peace-to-Afghanistan-02.29.20.pdf

Instead, Biden gave Bagram to the Afghans on July 1, 2021. The Afghans then turned it over to the Taliban on August 15, 2021.
