Joe Biden The New President Thoughts So Far?

We shouldnt get too hung up worrrying about all the military tackle left behind by the US military. 

 

Getting it all back to America in good condition would have been a logistical nightmare - Afghanistan has no coastal port - so a lot of it would have been scrapped anyway. Five minutes 'behind the dashboard' removing some electronic control units renders them unusable. Anyway, Taliban have no trained pilots. And there is no jet fuel left at Kabul airport. I bet the air traffic control system is off as well. 

 

Although there is a wanted ad on EBay for a Chinook workshop manual.........🙂🙂

 

But it's food for thought that they have taken control of the whole country without air cover, bombers, drones, tanks, misiles, cyber warfare and all the other stuff that we have been told is essential to modern combat. 

 

Why do we bother with ballistic missile subs?

Good point.....

Commander-in-Chief, what a laugh.  Having had a son in the forces, you'd think Sleepy Joe would know how to show some respect. 

A crazy notion, but maybe... just maybe... he wanted to know the time? :?

If a army of 75.000 religious nut cases decided to attack we in England they would not get as far as the first motor way service station , so how as that rag tag illiterate mob managed to take over 40 million people without a fight . The whole story stinks of pre planning by the departing occupiers .

I think you could be onto something here. Had we only opened a series of Little Chefs on the main route between Kabul and Kandahar things could all have turned out so differently.

Biden does seem to have a soft-spot for terrorists... what with his IRA sympathies.

This seems a bit over-elaborate as a theory. Having once been in a Little Chef, the tendency to avoid further 'exposure' seems entirely rational.

According to the three latest polls - RealClear Politics.

 

Job Approval - Joe Biden

 

NPR/PBS/Marist

Approve 43  Disapprove 51

 

Emerson

Approve 46  Disapprove 47

 

Rasmussen

Approve 42  Disapprove 56

 

Joe's average approval rating is now below that of OrangeManBad, at the same point of his first term.

 

What happened?

 

They have no excuses.

 

With the Democrats in Charge of both House of Congress, and the White House, we should be seeing the beautiful future they promised, starting to unfold in front of our very eyes!

 

Lol

The invasion of this country by religious nutcases started decades ago but it's being done by stealth. We have over 3 million Muslims in this country imposing their culture  instead of integrating and assimilating, and our capital city has a Muslim mayor. We used to fight off foreign invaders but now we give them a free taxi service into Kent and put them up in four star hotels.

Some may or may not be nut cases, but i doubt that the bulk of them are. They do seem to be fairly religeous though it's hard to know for certain, and i imagine the bulk aren't illiterate either.  They seem to be fairly well organised and have some sort of coherent organisational structure so rag tag and mob don't seem to be appropriate descriptions for them either. 

 

There are various groups opposing the Taliban and their control over the country is my no means complete.  Most of these opposing groups aren't a great deal better than  the Taliban and many are significantly worse. 

 

The Afghan army may not have put up much of a fight but that may not be as surprising as it seems based on the report linked to below.

To go back to Biden, then he inherited a deal which his predecessor made. He was faced with the choice of breaking America's word, I doubt many in Afghanisatan would appreciate the distinction between his and Trump's word. In addition, and doing so would almost certainly have resulted in an increase in attacks against all the people in Afghanistan I believe withdrawl was one of his campaign promises. 

 

One of the things, we need to know in order to judge the witthdrawl but I doubt we will ever find out is just how much the western governments knew about the shakiness of the the state and the reality on the ground.

Well if a gang of blokes rode into our Town rocket launchers strapped across their  chests  and on the back of a builders truck I would defiantly say , "who are this band of nut cases ".
