  1. The whole point of the invasion was to serve justice to Osama Bin Laden and other leaders responsible for 9/11. Now that we’ve already accomplished that it’s time to leave. Hope Biden keeps this promise 🙏

    • @iNCoMpeTeNt plAyS yes

      He will

    • @sissy murphy Were there background checks for Catholics, Protestants, or Jewish people? Any flights into the US said person already undergoes background checks without regard to anywhere they’re coming from. Other countries do this when we fly into their countries too. It’s useless to set up additional checks for people just because the majority of its country’s population has a particular religion.

    • @sissy murphy What? Your comment doesn’t make sense. Can you please explain?

      @Just Saying you really think they do a background check on the amount of people coming and going into and out of this country . Airplanes would never take off . go on to catch a smuggler on tv and see the amount of people they handle in just 1 hour . Just like border patrol was a disaster until TRUMP came into office and gave both places more money and more people and more equipment top handle the amount coming and going .Zetas and New Generation CARTEL are coming with more force than ever before because of BIDENS OPEN BORDER .

    I’m so happy to hear our troops are coming home.

    • Republicans hate that Biden is ending the war so will denigrate his efforts on every right wing show.

    • @david clark remember the real last republican named Dwight D. Eisenhower farewell? “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together”

      @Steve Sh So neither Bush, Nixon or Reagan were real republicans? You have a very weak grasp of history or politics.

      Me too, long overdue

    • @AFB Yuuki What Trump did was a pretend…..and didn’t push….
      Sorry…he doesn’t get a cookie.

    We met our objective. Now it’s time for Afganistan to take care of itself
    If they cause us trouble we can go back. This guest makes good sense.

  5. Biden will end Covid, and the war. 🥲

    Trump must be fuming 😄

      YOU ARE AN IDIOT…I don’t usually act like this, but you are whats wrong

    • @Reg U keep going its making you look worse!

    • @Eric Klaus Trump did nothing as usual. He lied and made this pandemic far worse than it had to be. You are deluded.

    • @Scooby Doo please tell me how you would have handled it? Maybe go to Chinatown or not to ban flights from China were it started and say it would be racist to do so? So please enlighten me.

    • @Scooby Doo who fast tracked the vaccines and distribution? Where was Biden 47 years and nothing, months of rioting, burning, looting in the basement!

    Remember when Reagan sold arms to the Taliban against the advice of the CIA?

    • @sissy murphy Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State, she had no authority or power to sell anyone arms. Besides, when was this supposed to have happened? Provide links to reputable sources or shut up your disinformation spouting.

      Besides, get over Hillary Clinton, she’s no longer in politics (other than as a pundit), and hasn’t been for the last 4+ years, but she’s obviously living rent free in the minds of Republicans.

      Get over it, crawl back under your bridge, that’s where trolls belong.

      @sissy murphy so your’re saying that reagan is just as bad as clinton.

      Yes! A few logistical and hand held weapons to battle soviet helicopters throwing muslim children out of them.. But didn’t quite work out because the same Pakistanis who sheltered OBL ended up with nuclear weapons thanks to A Q Khan’s nuclear weapons thanks to Bill Clinton declassification of 200 Nuke secrets he gave to the CCP .. right before he built Kim Jong il 2 nuke plants… right?

    These Veteran’s gave their service and lives. They should not give their children as well A healthy life instead of collateral damage is the legacy for their childrenAt least honor our veteran’s with an attempt. Thank You each and every Veteran🇺🇲

  8. “Some folks are born made to wave the flag,
    Oooh, the red, white and blue-
    But when the band plays ‘Hail to the Chief’,
    Well, they point the cannon at you!
    It ain’t me
    It ain’t me
    I ain’t no senator’s son
    It ain’t me
    It ain’t me
    I ain’t no fortunate one”

  9. Just finished listening to Malcolm Nance on this matter. It’s a must watch & learn…

  10. I bet they want us to leave their country too.

  11. Afghanistan is indeed the Graveyard of Empires.

    You mean the foreign threat. We still have the cult of sedition and insurrection here at home and at church.

  13. The crazy insurrection nuts remind me of the Taliban. Scruffy beards and that unwashed look and the way they squat and crap anywhere.

  14. 2021, We must pick our battles wisely. There are newer and bigger threats. Our own people need help, healing, and unity to make the US strong and battle worthy for the other possibly more serious and urgent threats from outside the borders. IF, we could just bond together as a Nation our safety, integrity and respect could return. The hate and division among us is by far the biggest threat to our lives and our Country.

    The threat will always remain. But our troops staying there makes no difference.

    It’s so nice to see a President with Common Sense. I’ve missed that. The previous administration had no sense at all. Just greed.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over again, expecting a different results

    Thank you veterans and serving now.prayers for you. Thank you for our wonderful freedom. Go USA 🇺🇸

  20. I hope my uncle who said I didn’t really do anything on my deployment to Afghanistan saw this.
