      Biden caused this deadly mess, and you are a Biden supporter. This is on you and your kind.
      Know your place!

    2. @Silkwood Art When Biden withdrew, he exposed problems that were there for decades. But that’s what happens when our money goes to foreign nations that can’t be trusted. And that’s the fault of both Democrats and Republicans.

    3. @Nia Howard
      NOT TRUE! THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM GIVES MORE THAN IS NEEDED. IF SOMEONE CAN’T SURVIVE OFF OF THE HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS GIVING OUT TO THEM EACH MONTH, THEN THEY ARE TOO STUPID TO KNOW HOW TO SHOP CORRECTLY OR COOK FOOD PROPERLY.

  1. yea right! The GOP so prejudice they are extremely afraid to house anyone but whites. Too many Karens in US

    1. @psycobleach46 tullis Little boy is Trump still president in your heart ???? Because this happened recently!!!!!!!!

    2. @psycobleach46 tullis Biden freed all the Taliban, armed the Taliban with 80 billion dollars in USA weapons, gave the Taliban Afghanistan, and left thousands of Americans behind enemy lines!!!!! Its ok you can say Trump is president !!!!!!

    3. Romana, Do you agree with Biden that Obama was the first clean intelligent black man???? DONT RUN FROM MY QUESTION LITTLE WOKE SHEEP BOY!!!!!

  2. it’s not even close, Ben – the GOP media machine is already gearing up anti immigrant anti Muslim anti democracy rhetoric – Tucker’s already questioning if they are here to replace us. Sounds all too familiar.

    1. if by replace you mean the empty houses and spaces left by the 650,000 dead Americans from the virus from wuhan… yes, replace with Afganis Refugees, say, 600,000 people?

  3. Poor Afghanistan is loosing their best, most educated citizens. They’ll be left with nothing but religious fanatics. Their loss is our gain in the west.

    1. It’s what the people wanted, it is not worth a second thought, except for the thousands of lost lives and the trillions of dollars!

  4. Our training Afghan ” soldiers” was just a jobs program for them. They never intended to be fighters; of course they folded. The US should have left in 2003, but greedy US contractors were making too much money to want to leave. The US just keeps screwing up.

  5. I’m so sick of the GOP, from Gragham, Greene and Gaetz threats of impeachment. Gragham, let’s talk Georgia call that has yet to be investigated; Greene and Gaetz, well that speaks for itself…The GOP from anti-vac states are killing themselves off, nuts

  6. The R’s will mess up refugees because they put nativism over honor. Good luck ever finding allies for our next doomed military adventure.

  7. GOP will be put to the test with the Afghanistan refugees. Duhhh…
    My guess that said test a big fat F!
    I think we all know republicans will all forget about that moral obligation to the Afghanistan people.

  8. I wonder what percentage of the people we are Evacuating actually helped us during the 20 year long war.
    Hopefully, someday, we will get an accurate report on the matter.

    1. Considering how long the military was in Afghanistan a lot of people had plenty of opportunity to help. So probably a lot of them. And then their families.

  9. Just wait till the cult realizes the Americans in Afghanistan are mostly dual citizenship and Muslims.
    Getting that info out would shut fox and right-wing media down on getting Americans home.
    I’d love to see a hundred faces when they realized that.

  10. WHAT TEST? ! They already FAILED EVERY “TEST” Brought to them in the last 5 years ! GOP Nazi’s DO NOT DESERVE A Second Chance!

  11. Point: America made it possible for progressive voices to be heard in Afghanistan.
    Counterpoint: And now those voices are going to slaughtered into silence.

  12. FAKE AMERICAN SYMPATHY
    Where was the sympathy when the US were bombing Afghanistan for 20 years??
    Now you blame Joe who put a STOP to it?
