    1. @Kevin Spears he already did mister i dont speak english, im a student getting paid 50 cents to GASLIGHTu can make no sense by yourself!

    2. ​@SureFire Mushrooms & Microgreens I read news articles primarily and then get analysis on stories that interest me from various sources because I’m an adult, actually. I don’t know how you got “I get all my information from Twitter” from me saying Trump ordered the mass withdrawal of US forces from Syria via Twitter bestie because that isn’t what I said at all.

    3. @B. T. NOOOO NOO NOO…You are from Another country, STOP DEFECTING U know ur getting 50 cents to type trasH…..noone is dumb anymore .. get LOST!! SCRAMb4 u endup like this

    1. @The Tweatles this was a deal made by Trump. This is what happens when you make deals with terrorists.

    2. @psycobleach46 tullis I said from February 2020 to now. When were they killed? Fact check didn’t tell you that did they?

    3. @Gregg thats exactly right NO recourse for their actions attacking Afghans and our people, there was NOTHING in trumps deal for that.

      World leaders knew we had NO leadership under trump,
      they know we have leadership now.
      that is because trump didn’t withdraw any civilians, Biden had to send troops back in to evacuate them.
      lol, All countries signed trumps deal and that includes the UK and of course they are going to say something about Biden because he is president now following through on trumps deal.
      YOu sound really stupid every time you say dementia because you have NO idea what it looks like or entails.

      NO, we have NOT any international respect or support we GAINED that back after trump left.

      trump is the only one who made our country weak even all the other countries know this. so you make NO point there sugar.

    4. @Gregg if you don’t like cut and paste you try backing up your own claims for a change instead lying your way through your comments.

    1. @Homeboy Sir they can call themselves what they want, Taliban, ISIS, Al Qaeda, it makes no difference. The fact of the matter is president potato left American people at their mercy. Fact!

    2. Wonder if the democrats are going to have countless investigations about this tragedy like they did with Russia interfering with the election

    1. @BlaQ Bay17 So…Kamala for President? Cool. Next in line after Kamala is Nancy Pelosi, too. Sure you want to go that road, dude?

    2. @90s were The best Are you serving in the military or are you just a pathetic couch potato with nothing better to do with your life but make idiotic comments!

    1. @charlidog2 Are you blaming all of the deaths in the world on Trump? Are you blaming all of the recent covid deaths on Trump, even after he HANDED Biden the vaccine to fix it?

    2. @mintymus In the world? Drama queen much?
      The -virus- vaccine can’t do its job because you magats won’t take it. You’d rather take a chance on cow dewormer than a known, safe vaccine. You’re such children.
      Biden has made the vaccine available everywhere. Benedict donald downplaying this thing, making it political is what started you idiots down this path. The hospitals are filled and people are dying. I take comfort that it’s the dumbest among us.

    1. @grin chi OMG!! biden claim to fight for immigrants then u say that? what are u getting for that post? 50 cents?

    2. Biden makes the fall of Siagon look like a success…7 million “votes” more popular than obama, biden is truly the most intelligent and the best example of what democrats have to offer. Everyday he is in office is a joy to wake up and see how badly he will mess up…

    3. @Osv Carbajal so, the Taliban didn’t notice the evacuation until now? the congressman left 4 days ago. there’s no cure for your kind of stupid

    4. @Osv Carbajal you’re a senile president said“The buck stops with me” “it’s about to get messy five minutes ago”… Wait a month and come back to this comment and see who is the imbecile

    2. @Doves4 Christ those soilders died because of the Biden administrations incompetence. If Trump were President you would be saying the same thing right now but Biden gets a pass because you are a hypocrite. By the way Trump did win and the election was stolen.

    3. @Guyinthecommentsection talk to the hand! You aren’t God so your if Trump was president is absolutely nothing but wishful thinking and unprovable! Furthermore there is ABSOLUTELY no proof of him winning any thing but the BIGGEST LIAR-in-chief and a MALIGNANT NARCISSIST Cult leader award! Lol Go and do something positive with your life like lowering the American flag in honor of our fallen troops or pay for a veteran’s meal the next time that you see one in a restaurant or store.

  1. Complete the mission and get out there. ASAP. Don’t stay pass the 31st. From this veteran. RIP to the service members that was lost doing their job

    1. @VOICEof THEpeople God bless you and may your heart be comforted. Losing a loved one or having a disabled child from war is painful. Know that you are not alone. Take care and stay safe out there.

    2. @JoeWreckingBallBiden If they kicked in your front door you’d probably view them as your biggest threat wouldn’t ya?

    3. @RegainingLife Didn’t Trump administration start the crisis? They negotiated a peace deal with the Taliban that released over 5000 Taliban prisoners including the co-founder of the Taliban. All of which helped to overthrow the afghan government. So I guess peeps who voted for Trump are just as dumb. LoL

    1. They lost their lives because they don’t want to leave afghanistan.
      Stop the evacuation and leave before more soldiers will die!!!!

    2. Wonder if the democrats are going to have countless investigations about this tragedy like they did with Russia interfering with the election

    1. @pdfico and also, trump told you that covid would go away. It was only 15 cases and soon be down to zero. 650000+ deaths due to mismanagement. Where is the blood on your hands?

    2. @JW Trumps deal/ STEP BY STEP –
      1. remove Americans
      2. remove $80 BILLION in military equipment
      3. remove troops

      Biden’s response –
      1. remove troops
      2. leave $80 BILLION in US military equipment
      3. leave Americans

      “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to F**k things up”
      -Barack Obama

    1. @Valerie Jean Bill Clinton got a BJ in the Oval Office, whats your point? Is it some kind of sacred ground? Al Sharpton has been in the oval office also, big deal.

    1. @gboy1640 There is no crying and running away. This is tragic and it is less than 24 hours since this occurred. This heinous act is the very reason the Coalition must withdraw. 20 years of effort has not lead to the Afghan govt being strong enough to lead their country and it is fruitless to continue. There will be a response.

  2. From one military family to another, thank you for your immense sacrifice. This is truly a tragedy but they died with honor trying to save and free others.

  3. RIP TO MY LOST BATTLE BUDDYS AND RIP MY FELLOW AFGHAN BUDDYS AS WELL. THOSE WHO HELPED US AND RISKED AND GAVE THEIR LIVES ARE HEROES AS WELL
