PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY AUG. 18, 2021) — THE PLANET supported and still does the President’s decision to rip the Band-Air off and quit Afghanistan. Obama and Trump said they would do it but didn’t.

Someone had to have the balls. It turned out to be Biden.

It had to be done. Now the backlash.

In light of the Taliban’s return, a war veteran asked “Were all our sacrifices wasted?”

Answer: Yes. Not only that, they were wasted the moment President George W. Bush caved to the adults and declared war.

Top Secret: Here’s the map currently hanging in the White House War Room.

Bush Lite dismissed warnings about another Vietnam and ignored the lessons of history. Fact is, we haven’t won shinola since WWII. Reagan’s invasion of Slap Happia doesn’t count (see map).

The Constitution didn’t stop Bush. That document reserves declarations of war for Congress. He loved the ring of “I’m a wartime president.”

Obama and Trump landed in the tarpit, trapped. That ate trillions of dollars and thousands of U.S. casualties — to say nothing of the civilian count “over there.”

Now it’s Syracuse Joe Biden in the deep muddy. Biden made a speech from the White House, calling the Afghan collapse “hard and messy.” He stood by his decision to pull out, folded his papers, and took no questions.

China, Russia, Iran and others sat with the Cheshire Cat snacking on the “I told you so”s. China provided the best analysis, calling this latest U.S. failure the result of hegemon America’s foreign “geopolitical experiments.” So much for George Washington’s advice about avoiding “foreign entanglements”

———- ooo ———-

Here are some of the comments made by other media:

Newsweek:

‘Were all of our sacrifices wasted?’: War veterans react to stunning Afghanistan collapse

1979 to now: A timeline of the US withdrawal and Taliban recapture of Afghanistan

[Ron] Paul, who had three stints in Congress, gave a speech in March 2011 in which he supported legislation advocating the U.S. military leaving Afghanistan.

“The question we’re facing today is should we leave Afghanistan? I think the answer is very clear and it’s not complicated, that of course we should. As soon as we can,” he said. “This suggests that we can leave by the end of the year. If we don’t, we’ll be there for another decade would be my prediction.”

On leaving, he said: “The large majority of the American people now say it’s time to get out of Afghanistan. It’s a fruitless venture, too much has been lost, the chance of winning, since we don’t even know what we’re going to win, doesn’t exist.”

Later in his speech, he spoke against the “perpetual occupation of a country.”

“We can’t change Afghanistan,” he said. “Even if you could, you’re not supposed to. You don’t have the moral authority, you don’t have the constitutional authority.”

———- ooo ———-

businessinsider.com:

During his 2016 campaign and continuing at the White House, [President Donald] Trump said he would keep the United States “out of endless and costly foreign wars,” and this weekend, the former president took time to criticize what he perceives as Biden’s foreign policy “weakness.”

“He ran out of Afghanistan instead of following the plan our Administration left for him–a plan that protected our people and our property, and ensured the Taliban would never dream of taking our Embassy or providing a base for new attacks against America,” he said in a statement. “The withdrawal would be guided by facts on the ground.”

He added: “After I took out ISIS, I established a credible deterrent. That deterrent is now gone. The Taliban no longer has fear or respect for America, or America’s power.”

On Saturday, Biden appeared to shift the blame for any sort of Afghanistan blunder to Trump, who he said left the Taliban “in the strongest position militarily since 2001.”

———- ooo ———-

thehill.com:

“The complete, utter failure of the Afghan National Army, absent our hand-holding, to defend their country is a blistering indictment of a failed 20-year strategy predicated on the belief that billions of U.S taxpayer dollars could create an effective, democratic central government in a nation that has never had one,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said this past week.

The attempt to force democracy on those who don’t want it can never work. The United State’s evangelical hubris, channeled into foreign adventurism under the guise of “spreading democracy,” has been the ultimate con game. Since 1945, it has kept us on a perpetual war footing — great for the economy, military-industrial complex, and national politicians.

And for We The People?

Forget it.

Afghanistan falling to the Taliban TERRORISTS is a total DEBACLE! President Joe Biden should be impeached for allowing Afghanistan to become yet another TERRORIST STATE. Thousands upon thousands of innocent people will be killed in the coming weeks. The U.S.A. is but a drop of water in the vast ocean of geopolitical politics. Hitler, Stalin, Chairman Mao, et al, killed tens of millions upon millions of innocent Peoples who opposed their regimes. The same is true with the Taliban. This is a NIGHTMARE and a HUMANITARIAN TRAGEDY. Lastly, Joe Biden VOTED for the IRAQ CONFLICT under President George W. Bush, and we are still in IRAQ, which has the 2nd largest oil reserves in the world, which is a total DOUBLE STANDARD.

Mostly everyone agrees that we should leave Afghanistan, but it’s the way that Biden did it that is so insane. It’s like our troops just ran out in a panic, abandoning their weaponry, and leaving nearly 40,000 Americans and lots of Allies behind to face, no matter how nice the Taliban tries to make themselves sound, a terrorist organization that likes to remove body parts and chop off heads. It’s clear why the Afghan people were so terrified in that airport that they would rather die clinging to a plane than face the Taliban.

Now he’s sending some troops back in, but not when Biden did the withdrawal. He left no troops in place to hold off the Taliban because his intel was telling him that the Afghans would fight like mad to ward off the Taliban and it wouldn’t be for a while until the Taliban entered the country and that would give them time to remove Americans and our allies. Some generals, however, have said they were telling him not to leave so abruptly, but Biden ignored them.

I read that once our military left we took our intel with us and supposedly without the intel the Afghans totally fell apart. At that point they surrendered to the Taliban. Can we believe it? Who knows what we can and can’t believe from our media, but it might explain some of what looks like cowardice to us, but may have been something else.

Pat – that sounds like Pentocratic window washing. The provinces fell because the Taliban never really left and the local leaders were making deals. Our intel has a history of screwing up. They merrily watched on airport security camera each 9/11 airplane get taken over by barely armed nihilists and didn’t even run for the exits of their respective employers before those planes made contact.

But I also remember thinking, after we left Viet Nam with our tails between our legs, that we would know better than to get involved in anything like it in my lifetime.

Former President Trump said last night on Hannity that he doesn’t care if it insults the Bush family, but he thinks it was wrong to occupy Afghanistan for over 20 years costing trillions of dollars? Wouldn’t that money have been better spent in our own country? He’s right. Our anger after 9/11 would have been better spent in some targeted bombing toward those who were responsible. Terrorist groups were taking lots of territory during the Obama years, however, and they were using it as bases to plan terrorist attacks, but we have to find other ways to combat terrorism than occupying these countries.

Now the Republicans have some leverage, but will they use it? Our allies from Afghanistan will be pouring into Texas and other states by the thousands so we can’t have open borders on top of this situation. Republicans need to declare this a crisis and open borders are unsustainable at this time. We should take in these refugees that helped us over there, although I think Americans over in that country should be the top priority as well. Do the Republicans have the spine to do what needs to be done?

It’s about time we left Afghanistan. I do believe that the way it’s being done is a shit show.
We never should have been an occupying force to begin with. Most Americans didn’t even pay any attention to that war, opting to concentrate on more important things such as the next new cell phone coming out. In addition, most Americans don’t even know anyone currently serving in the military, which is no surprise, as less than 1% of the population serves in our all volunteer force.
If our government wants to have an occupying force engaged in combat then enact the draft, and then you will quickly see and hear from the American people. When everyone’s son, uncle, brother, cousin, friends……..get called to share the burden of our country’s wars everyone pays attention.

Dan, a person can use a restroom and go take a crap. Or you can fall down in a stupor and crap your pants.

Biden did the latter, and he is still rolling around in his own diarrhea, wallowing in the mud.

I do agree it was time to get out of Afghanistan. It was costly in both terms of lives and dollars.

But I do have to ask, why did Xiden flee Afghanistan like somebody trying to skip out on their last months rent? He left behind military helicopters, armed drones, numerous other weapons, and a lot of ammunition.

And don’t give me, “Xiden was just following the agreement Trump signed.” That didn’t seem to matter when Xiden ended the Keystone Pipeline, keeping prescription medication cheap, the crisis on the southern border, and on and on….

Unfortunately we are not even one year into Xiden/Harris term and it just keeps getting worse and worse. During the Trump presidency, we did not have one new war started, nor did we have any radical Islamic terrorist attacks on US soil. I’m certainly not hoping for another 9/11, but with the weapons cache left behind and ISIS seeing how weak and inept the Xiden administration is, I’m keeping my fingers crossed. It doesn’t look promising.

While I agree with you, Dan, that we should never have set boots in Afghanistan, the WAY no-balls Syracuse Joe’s admin. pulled out without a plan and gave an airport, embassy and all kinds of military equipment to the bad guys absolutely reeks of incompetence. Thousands of Americans left behind. This exit smacks of Barack Hussein O. who has been undermining the U.S. for years.

If anyone thinks Syracuse Joe is running the country, think again. He is nothing more than Obama’s sock puppet.

Now the plan is to bring thousands of Afghan refugees into the country, people who will not easily abandon their ideology and will further drain social services. Sound familiar? Obama opened the floodgates to the Syrian refugees. You can bet Tyer is already in line begging for her share of Afghans.

Impeach Biden!

Thousands of lives are in peril in Afghanistan and the most important thing for some people is to participate in political trashing. Try, for one minute, to think about the seriousness of this situation. Then you can trash the man for the next 3 and one half years, every hour of every day of every week of every month. But for a couple of days hope things go well for those in danger.

Just watched Bumbling Biden’s latest speech, not one mention of Afghanistan, how much more pathetic can he get? Watched last night as he landed at the White House, he had no idea where he was. Secret Service had to once again guide him to the door of the White House. Sorry to hurt your feelings Dan, but, I don’t think Joe even remembers going to Syracuse. The scariest part of all this is if he steps down, it will be worse with Kamela stepping in. If she fails which with her response to the border crisis, I have absolutely no faith in her, we then end up with complete nutcase Pelosi. Believe this was Pelosi’s idea all along! God help the USA.

Glenn Beck is having his audience help fund the huge amount of money it will take to send a group over to Afghanistan to rescue Christians because the Taliban is going from house to house and specifically targeting not only anyone who aided Americans, but also Christians. This rescue mission is to specifically help Christians although I’m sure they will help anyone who needs escape from that area because if this crisis has shown us anything, it’s that the Biden administration is useless.

Regarding the closing quote from The Hill, “The complete, utter failure of the Afghan National Army, absent our hand-holding, to defend their country is a blistering indictment of a failed 20-year strategy predicated on the belief that billions of U.S taxpayer dollars could create an effective, democratic central government in a nation that has never had one”

What another worn out rag of a cliche. Ben Franklin and Madison et al did not have a fine old Democracy, outside the Magna Carta, to build a representative government based on Federal and State interests with the capacity to repel regional war between NYS and Virginia. Back then, all bets were off and the odds were even. VA was solvent and had marksmen. NY had water commissioners and wet powder. Later on, a few generations hence, we did fine in Japan and Europe – such specimens of weird milito-democracy in Prussia, and Korea (yes it really did take 50 years for them to schedule their first election). Maybe, it is possible that the problem here is that after we drove out the Taliban, we appealed to the Afghan’s leadership council (jirga) for suggestions and kicked off their favored option, a proposal for a modernized Constitutional Monarch, old school and already ready to roll, and instead Washington’s* bozos just turned the job over to Lawrence of Arabia, Haliburton and the native grifters? Haliburton: The Maker of Nations and sewage plants.

Fizzle: This does have local resonance, doesn’t it?
