President Biden in His Mind Successfully Completed His Afghan Mission of Bugging out.
President Biden in His Mind Successfully Completed His Afghan Mission of Bugging Out The law student who graduated in the top half of the bottom ten percent of his law school class had a brilliant idea in his mind: Evacuate Afghanistan with minimal military casualties and declare victory on September 11. He’s been fixated for over a decade on getting out of Afghanistan and ending the war, totally out. Vice President Biden during National Security Council meetings said of Afghanistan: “We should get the heck out of there.” The late Richard Holbrooke quoted the Vice President saying he was “not sending my boy back there to risk his life on behalf of (Afghan) women’s rights…. That’s not what they’re there for.” He was not going to send his deceased son Beau back to Afghanistan or put American sons and daughters at risk. They were coming out quickly and safely. Reduce risk to the soldiers by bugging out quickly with no warning. President Trump’s plan was to evacuate the Americans, then the Afghan allies, followed by removing or destroying military equipment, and finally the military. That wasn’t President Biden’s approach. He started with the military withdrawal. The military pulled out of Bagram Air base on July 1 in the middle of the night, turning off the electricity at 3:00AM. He didn’t tell the Afghans, or our NATO allies who fought with America in Afghanistan. He expressed in his braggadocio Tuesday speech: “I was not going to extend this forever war and I was not going to extend a forever exit.” He claimed his withdrawal was “extraordinarily successful.” Left behind in his extraordinary successful bugout was the greatest loss of military equipment in world history: Blackhawk helicopters A-20 attack planes Humvees Drones Machine guns M 4’s and M 16’s Night vision goggles Biometric Collection Devices Left behind in the Fall of Afghanistan were people: AMERICAN CITIZENS: Men, Women, and Children stranded in Afghanistan American green card holders Afghan supporters to whom we pledged evacuation Afghan journalists American Pride The Atlantic Alliance NATO Left behind in Afghanistan: Presidential lies, vows, promises, and misstatements. Trust Truth Reality He shattered both global respect and fear of America If that is “extraordinarily successful,” then what would abject failure be? The people and equipment left behind - not a problem. A small price to pay for President Biden's mission of leaving Afghanistan with minimal casualties. The people left behind - not the Prresident's problem. Let Secretary Blinkin work it out. The lies and false statements - necessary to effectuate the pullout. Ignoring the scores of warnings - President Biden did what he had to do to leave Afghanistan. Very little of the past five weeks make sense unless you focus on the President's fixation to get out of Afghanistan. 13 fatalities by a suicide bomber – sad, but it could have been worse in his mind if he hadn’t kept the military out of harm’s way. Extending the perimeter around the airport would have risked the lives of the Marines and soldiers. Better for him that civilians take the risk. The cold calculation was that the Afghan Army could survive 6-18 months before a Taliban takeover. Biden would be out; Afghanistan’s collapse would not be on his watch. His fingerprints would not be on the Fall of Afghanistan. He would be celebrated for his political genius, one of the greatest in all history. He might even replace one of the slave owners on Mount Rushmore – no, that would be a stretch even for Biden. Of course he was checking his watch at Dover with the caskets ceremony. He was bored; he never should have been there; it was damn inconvenient for the 13 Marines, soldiers and sailors to die at Karzai Airport. Of course President Biden rolled his “f…ing eyes” as he met with family members of the deceased 13. He spoke of his late son Beau; the other sons and daughters were a distraction. Blame Trump. Blame the Americans who didn’t get out early. Blame the Afghans who stayed behind. Mission accomplished:” “Extraordinary Success!” in his mind. America is out of Afghanistan with minimal military casualties. Truth and reality will not intrude on his vision. If history is written by winners, then President Biden will be recognized as a consummate fool. The vainglory delusions of President Biden will be engraved in history with those of Nero and Chamberlain.
