Jen Psaki says that things happen that you don’t want to happen in a retrograde. Yes, we sure do see that!
We had the opportunity to control Kabul, and our administration declined. We had the chance to exit our citizens before our military, and the administration put the proverbial cart before the horse. We had a chance to keep our airbase and support our interests, citizens and allies, and our administration chose to leave our air base, aircraft, munitions, technology and biometric data information on American citizens and our allies in the middle of the night without informing our Afghan army partners that we left them without support and abandoned our mission to keep the Taliban terrorists from taking over.
What is a retrograde? It is a ‘fancy pants politically correct’ retreat and surrender. There is no end to the holy war of terrorism against ALL who will not bow to the muslim faith. Just because we leave Afghanistan, doesn’t mean that our enemies have ceased the war. They are still at war with us whether we want to participate in the war or not. Just because we won’t defend ourselves doesn’t mean they won’t attack us anymore. In fact, the Taliban has effectively said with a boot at our administration’s butt to get on out by tomorrow, and thank you very much for the land, hostages, and military equipment we will use against you in the United States.
How naive and inept is our administration. Blinken was on vacation as Kabul fell. I guess he believed his own words that Kabul couldn’t fall in a weekend. Congress is in recess and won’t come back to work because Nancy doesn’t want the heat or to tackle the debacle of the retrograde mission and stand up for our nation. Reporters are really more interested in what flavors of ice cream Biden and Pelosi eat each day than questioning their inept, illegal, and questionable actions to the demise of our country and Constitution.
Our nation seems less secure with each passing day of this administration. The risk of attacks on our homeland are rising. Lawmakers are acting lawlessly and with what the military would call a dereliction of duty. The administration repeatedly says that the time for discussions about what is going on in the “retrograde” is not now. If not now, while we are still in country and could get more of our citizens out, when?
A bus load of American students in sight of the airbase gates yesterday, experience Taliban gun fire over them and was not allowed to get to the gate or entrance to the airport gate to exit Afghanistan. The University administration admitted that Taliban has their names thanks to our government.
I can hear the congressional committees investigating all of this next year now. I hear in my mind replies like the one made about Benghazi by the Secretary of State who said, “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” she said. “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?” The difference is that those were our beloved sons and daughters.
Samuel Adams said in 1771, “The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.”
If we lose our nation, there is no other place in the world of such liberty and rights. It is a sobering time. What will you do to defend your freedoms, your family, your property, your neighbors, and your nation from our enemies both foreign and domestic? You might want to think about it. You might want to be ready.
