    1. @21st Century ManWe are all creature’s of the earth in search of better living. And gods help us with our fate and find our purpose in life. America is many things but god is many things as well

    2. @21st Century Man the belief stays in your heart. That fate is more than enough to keep people going. We went to space and haven t found god but people still believe and they deserve that right to believe. In Asian countries, they worship gods who are said to return and await each day for that return. They exist to them and that’s all that matters. The fate and belief keeps them going and it has helped my family for generations. Through slavery and poverty and that belief keeps us going

    1. @Salli Hershberger it doesn’t matter God bless them all. They have a long haul ahead of them .those babies… so sad

  1. Congrats US… on your stand for freedom and…. For getting out…..
    It’s time to build you communities and public infrastructures

    1. And tear the **it out of the SCOTUS. WE NEED OUR MORATORIUMS BACK FAST! Landlords that run slums, use these assets as Passive income to only jave another pay your own bills by overcharging rents excessively….no need for your input here!

  2. An army fighting a perpetual war with counter insurgent terrorists is insane! Going outside of the scope of the mission to get those responsible for 9/11 with nation building was a massive mistake. Now it’s over. Thank **** for that.

    1. @Noreb Doha, Qatar, in February 2020,tRump sign the peace treaty with the Taliban and then invited them to Camp David which nobody like that idea. Biden had no choice to either pull out or suffer a bloody war which would have cost us a lot of more money and a lot more blood. You obviously have the internet Google that for your self.

    2. and to the hundreds(if not more) Americans that this fake administration left behind…you’re on your own! time is up(as the disgusting Beijing Biden checks his watch)!!

    3. @shelton mackey I agree. That doesn’t mean that you send troops over to fight an endless war. There is no endgame to a war with a counter insurgent ideology in Afghanistan or any other country. I just hope that lessons have been learned. History tells me it won’t be.

    4. @D Sears you mean the unconditional surrender to the taliban trump signed without the afgan government and left for his successor to actually complete? yeah you have a strange way of characterizing ending wars…

    5. @bob bobson its gotta be so upsetting to see biden keep completing the promises trump made and failed to deliver on…

    1. Unfortunately terrorists will take over and build back. Time to secure our borders for real this time.

    2. This is what we know. After reassuring Americans and their allies that an Afghanistan takeover by the Taliban was NOT inevitable a month ago, *BIDEN* was *CLEARY WRONG*

      We know that he had been warned many times and ignored advice (or, he chose to take the wrong advice if you want me to put it that way).

      NYT article titled _”Intelligence Warned of Afghan Military Collapse, Despite Biden’s Assurances.”_

      Also Sean Hannity confirmed from dozens of sources that this was the case. The YT video is available to watch.

      *President Trump’s Exit Plan*
      1) evacuate civilians
      2) dispose of military equipment
      3) pull troops

      This is a typical military exit strategy. Biden ignores the plan and did not dispose of military equipment and did not evacuate the civilians he had reassured a month prior that the Afghanistan military would fight.

      By not disposing of the military equipment like President Trump planned to, Biden armed the Taliban with dozens of billions of dollars of equipment. Including, but not limited to:

      – Black Hawk Helicopters
      – A-29 Super Tocano Bombers (aircraft)
      – Armoured Humvee and Drones
      – Night visions goggles

      Since then, we have found out through Breitbart news titled _”Biden Officials gave Taliban List of Stranded Americans, Afghan Allies.”_

      When asked if he trusts the Taliban, he completely dodged the question. Even if he does not trust them why would you give them a list?

      Our government is now “working with the Taliban” to create a perimeter. If he doesn’t trust them why does he want to work with them?

      The Chinese Government openly supports the Taliban.

      Joe is a puppet for

    3. @Bay 17 Sure, but I would worry that people would use this argument as an excuse to stay in indefinitely or for another 20yrs. Trumps exit strategy sounds legit, but he never actually proceeded.

    4. @Bay 17 It’s not like our government isn’t used to arming terrorist groups, anyways. We funded the Mujahideen to fight soviets, for example, and we gave ISIS weapons to fight Saddam Hussein. The real lesson is to ovoid regime-change wars in the first place. Also, we bomb civilians regularly

    1. @Darrmad you still haven t answered my question but that proves that you wont admit trump is a disgrace. He is and so is the entire republican party for starting this

    2. @Darrmad so yeah, go back to your fantasy land and to your board on 4chan to spur up some more conspiracies. You absolute patriot you

    3. @my opinion the job of the govt is protect the live of american people. I dont blame the war ,i only blame the way biden and his people for this withdrawal

    4. @N W not the first time not the last time. I dont like trump but at least he đi almost every of his promises. Biden doesnt do damm thing, where is 10k for giveness student loan

    1. @Winston Smith yes Bernie would have been a great choice.. not – I see your boy has several houses and millions now. He seems to be cashing in on the current system “he claims to hate” wake up Smith

    2. @New Man I don’t support Bernie the man, I support his platform. I realize that’s a concept a lib probably can’t understand. But just dismiss me as a Russian and go about your day, lib

  3. Well said. Lots to celebrate but ahead of all that was the cost to America and our pride in those that sacrificed so much. This is a good day!

  4. But Now,now it’s time to gather all of our Military,give them all our respect n help to situate themselves so they can regroup n get our people out ,from Afghanistan. It’s who we Truely Are.We don’t see color we see Humans.

    1. @Omega Lighting Yes. I hope that I am right and I do pray for the Afghanis, but I have a strong faith in the belief that democratic republics will triumph in the end.
      Take care.

  5. Took courage from President Biden to take this task on and complete it, knowing the danger, and the predictable backlash from the do nothing Republicans. It wasn’t elegant, but it was done. Over 120,000 people evacuated.

    1. Tell that to the families of the dead soldiers. They’d have your worthless head on a pike where it belongs.

    2. You should go listen to the mother of one of the soldiers who called into a radio show the other day, and hear what she thinks about Biden’s “courage.”

  6. Thank you to all military personnel. To those that gave the ultimate sacrifice their heaven or Valhalla will welcome them.

    1. @Bay 17 So you are referring to Sean Hannity and Trump’s Exit plan to put this on Biden? Not a word of Trump’s failure to not trust the Taliban’s the Republicans created themselves? It’s blatantly obvious that it’s all about reinstating the Insurrection President, the concern about ppl in Afghanistan is secondary at best. America shouldn’ve never been there in the first place. Troops have left? Fine, move on and stay the f.. out of Afghanistan as long as you don’t destabilize it.

    2. @Bay 17 Btw if you put crimes aside it’s like a German would refer to Propaganda Minister Goebbels to make failed Bunker Boi Hitler posthumously look better.

    3. @Tyrone Valdéz-Krüger Trumps plan was to withdrawal military hardware and civilians out the upcoming months leading up the main withdrawal of the soldiers in May, that date because of Ramadan. Your current president failed to even conduct Trumps plan properly yet you all blame Trump dispite him not being in office for over 7 months.

    4. @Sir Mc Pablo Of course it was Trump’s plan in retrospective. As factual as you can believe anything in retrospective. I don’t think that this “Trump had a plan” thing has any relevance, it’s just more smoke to push Trump’s comeback. Anyway… how about this pov: Trump should have never considered a deal with the Taliban whom his Republican predecessor demonised in front of the world yet you all blame Biden despite him not being in office not for over 7 months. Afghanistan, pandemic (ridiculous projection), exploded gas price (ridiculously false) etc

    5. @Tyrone Valdéz-Krüger – LOL! Nothing more is needed for a Trump comeback other than watching Biden crash and burn like he is doing. Your soliloquy is irrelevant.

    2. @Bay 17 We should do what England did to the entire French Navy in WW2 , rather than all the war ships falling into Nazi hands and being used against the Royal Navy. They destroyed them ALL even with the French sailors on board still while sitting at the docks tied up. Just a thought?

  7. Once again this Vietnam war veteran says “Bravo!”. Please, America, don’t ever let another politician of any stripe stampede you again! Please learn from past mistakes! … God Bless America! May God Bless our republic!

    1. Yes, thank you all for occupying that country for 20 years and then leaving the Afghanis to the mercy of the Taliban. Give yourselves a round of applause. You did as you were told. Our tax dollars paid for what you did to those people. The taxpayers are just as the much the heroes and/or villains in this tale. Let’s give ourselves a round of applause as well!

    2. @Kyle Kyle the fact is, drama queen nothing satisfies the MAGAt crowd… if it were Trump you would make endless excuses as you all do for every deplorable thing he does. Get yourself a reality check.

    3. @Lisa Burnette Once again you are dead wrong. I bashed Trump for the continuation of selling the Saudis weapons.

  8. My heart and my thanks go out to those solders that risked their lives and those who lost their life, all of you. are heroes and deserves all the praze. a soldier can get,god blessyou all!

  9. Thank you to all Vets, all our Military who shone proud in our eyes.
    Both in this war, and getting out.
    RIP brave souls.

    1. Yeah, they should be congratulated for deliberately abandoning hundreds of Americans to the Taliban. Awesum!!

    2. @gritos incoherentes No Gritos!!!! No one was deliberately abandoned . Trump made a commitment to withdraw by a certain date. Biden had to honor that commitment. Sadly that meant not everyone can come out. It is just not physically possible to get them all out by a certain date. We must pray for them. Use their stealth, their cunning to survive. We will use our stealth and cunning to get them out. We have to .

    3. Vets are not having a good time considering the way we pulled out, 20 years of progress to help Afghans was wasted in just a few weeks.

    4. No, thanks, All of us didn’t come home and many are left behind to hide and be hunted, abused, enslaved, tortured, and murdered. Give my shot of JD to them. As if you give AF

  10. I give praise to all of you that serve or have served in the US Military. I welcome you home with gratitude and love.
