  1. Before people keep blaming US. we need to question why Afgans forces didn’t fight??? Simply laid the weapon down and run.

    1. @The Homeless Travel Network Airways Thanks for admitting that Trump’s “deal” was the worst decision that a president has ever made.

    2. More Afghan soldiers died in 1 year than Americans on the ground in 20 years. Before armchair quarterbacking perhaps think about how you’d respond when the Taliban have you surrounded tough guy.

    2. @Reason Times of Israel for one. But the the info is making the rounds. The U.S has been deliberately overestimating size,ability and power for years.

    3. @Reason A large number Afghan military collecting a soldier’s pay. Not so many actually reporting for duty. So official numbers are falsely inflated.

    2. Am getting sick and tired of the media and their exposure of the plight of these Afghanists America has spent 2 decades, and billions of dollars, of trying to assist these people. The chaos it’s causing, lay firmly at the feet of their Leaders !?

      How can anyone help them, if they don’t have the will to do it for themselves !!?
      They have used the Americans, for too long. Time to stand on their own two feet.

    3. And no they didnt hand over the government the afghan army was simply just spent after thousands upon thousand s of casualties they just werent able to fight anymore

  2. Look at how the Afghanistan Ambassador has shaved his gnarly beard to look more respectable to the West. You can’t trust them.

  3. In the 1980s, Reagan supported the Taliban against USSR. Because Republicans think any anti-communist must be a good guy. Reagan/Bush put Taliban base camps in secure Pakistan.

    1. Consider why the US didn’t notify its “ally” Pakistan that it was hitting Osama bin Laden (who lived within sight of Pakistan’s military academy.)

  4. As soon as the infidel has gone there will be knocks on doors and retribution to those who helped them

    1. @Stephen Podeschi You are welcome hope am not bothering you over there. I’m from Los Angeles california

  5. Yeah let’s listen to one of the corrup Afghan politician on what America could have done differently. Please, these people won’t fight for themselves why should I be ordered to go back for another 20 years and die?

  6. Thousands of innocent Afgan people face a cruel execution at the hands of the Taliban and ISS because of Joe Biden’s cowardice and incompetence.
