Biden’s Idiocracy

Dateline: August 20, 2021 The White House

Joe Biden is being excoriated from all sides for his cut-and-run abandonment of Americans, Afghanis and allies alike in Afghanistan. He ordered the surrender of a state-of-the-art military base and its munitions, vehicles and aircraft in favor of protecting a third world airport.

While the British, French, Germans and Indians send troops into Kabul to rescue their people, Biden has restricted our troops to the airport. Our people are on their own in crossing hostile Taliban lines to reach our troops on the tarmac.

The damage Biden has done to America’s standing in the international community may be irreparable. He has been denounced by more than a bipartisan chorus in our Country. Members of the British Parliament have heaped scorn on our President for his cowardice. NATO has castigated him. The trust in America’s commitment to its obligations is gone.

In response, Biden has sputtered out a series of contradictory excuses for his dereliction of duty all of which are demonstrably false.

So, what is the truth? What has motivated Biden’s unforgivable ineptitude in ceding Afghanistan and everyone within it, to the whims of the Taliban?

He revealed his thinking in the August 18 interview with George Stephanopoulos. Although his thoughts were uttered in the context of the treatment of women, they apply to all aspects of his dealing with the Taliban:

“The idea that we’re able to deal with the rights of women around the world by military force is not rational… The way to deal with that is putting economic, diplomatic, and national pre– international pressure on them to change their behavior.”

Biden stands to the left of even the French in his delusional belief that international influence will make the Taliban behave. As far as bribery goes, the murderous, barbaric horde is flush with billions of dollars in arms, vehicles and aircraft Biden has already relinquished to them.

If one American civilian is killed, Biden’s head will roll off the political landscape onto history’s dung heap.
