Taliban Sources: 13 People Killed From Suicide Attack Near Kabul Airport
20 years of this stuff PAST TIME TO LEAVE
@Deus Sanguinius That wasn’t my comment. I commented on who is in charge of the Taliban. He was released by Obama.
@richard french Exactly. Not one death in a year and a half.
This suicide attack was carried out by ISIS Khorasan. Their masters is the Pakistani ISI. Latest news – 4 marines have died and 40 others with 150 injured.
@Deus Sanguinius who’s president now? Who’s failed evacuation caused this choke point for isis? Stop with the deflection.
@P D who changed the visa process and slowed it down? The trump administration before losing.
This is outrageous
@My Pillow Guy With their terroristic drones.
Why? It’s the deal trump made with the Taliban. How else could it end.
@1966bluemax yup sure is
@lauren vega-cruz yeah agree it probably happen again that explosion from Afghanistan set something could be a sign of future problems
@Andrey Mudik thank bush and Halliburton for the beginning half that was his agenda.
Let’s not pretend the Taliban wouldn’t allow something like this to happen or actually be involved.
@Floyd Ray Roseberry you’re so smart you voted for a dementia ridden sock puppet potato. Must be proud of how he’s destroying this country?
If Taliban really cooperates with US for security this wouldnt happen, who is in power in Kabul? The Talibans. I don’t understand why people still thinking, the Talibans are good, they tried to warn us. That’s so stupid… people these days can’t distinguish threatening and warning these days…
@bbob70 do you know the members of Taliban? Do you know what they believe? Do you know why they forbit women go to school, and chop people’s hands if they commit into theft… dont say you understand what they are trying to gain before you actually know them.
@k b …..and still would be …had 80 million know it all’s decide to prove to the world how little they know
@Floyd Ray Roseberry you win most ignorant comment of the day ..congratulations .. now get off your mom’s computer
Itu bukan dilakukan oleh taliban, tapi dilakukan oleh kelompok yang membenci taliban yaitu anti-taliban.
A lot of stuff in Kabul has been built up. If it is Isis, look what they did to Syria fighting.
Thanks to Impotent
Update: Our 5 soldiers are now dead at the airport and over 40 civilians lost their lives with 92 injured.
@Chris Parker You wouldn’t if this limp channel is the only one you watch. Try any Indian channel, Canadian channel, or BBC.
@Chris Parker & those are the only confirmed dead. More to come, guaranteed.
@Chris Parker 18 months without a soldier’s death in Afghanistan… until this failed presidency.
Watch out what you say about this administration, the new National Alert for Homeland Security started Aug. 13th and goes to Nov. 11, 2021 against domestic terrorists is in place now. That means you and me.
@Chris Parker Uh oh…someone is upset that their daddy Joe is failing at his job.
We all knew this was going to take place.
Why spend so much money on military equipment and not use it?
Everyone except Joe Biden. We can thank him for this blunder he couldn’t think of ANY other way to get out? His brain is spent, now people die.
The question baffling the world isn’t why we left Afghanistan, but rather why we did so in the most incompetent and disastrous way possible. The Biden administration is a joke!!
@i dont have time 2 reply They knew as well, even made the intelligence public that an attack was imminent.
this ok let’s bring them back stabbers with a plane ride whotf are the talibans and alqaeda are they from an alien land ? no.
Terror threat level should be pegged right now.
Bush fool me once shame on me fool me twice..can’t get fooled again.😂
@Faith Baker Those of us who are smart and common sense yes. Bush Jr. Should have been awoken in his second term!
Biden is 100% for what is going on *NOW*
Same here until I hear todays Speech saying US went to fight because of Bin Laden😣😩🤣All these years I kept hearing that They went to war to give them women freedom😣😏
God bless us all. Death and destruction cant be the only answer.
yaa, he sure forgot the music cuz he has no soul.
I’ll take secularism everyday of the week twice on Sundays.
@Roxanne Mitchell no you can literally go back and watch trump talk about his plan to get out of Afghanistan
This is the left’s favorite religion of pieces in action.
Body pieces after the bombs go off.
“Diversity is our strength.”
The same secularism that brought us all the wars of the 20th century and the nuclear weapons that came with them?
Seymour, good look with that.
@zac cooper So why can’t we “literally go back and watch trump” “plan” in ACTION instead of watching him “talk about his plan”??? He was thee absolute top man in command. He went as far as to negotiate with the Taliban…why didn’t he get out on his watch???
This is the same guy that caused instability in the middle east by backing out of the Iranian nuclear deal. Despite his Generals & other Intel tell him it was a “bad idea”, mainly because the deal was showing progress.
The Taliban is surely a reliable source for accurate reporting…🇺🇸☎️
@umbraemilitos you must be under the age of 20 and not very educated
@ToddiousMaximous Do you have at least one example of a leftist media outlet we can discuss?
@umbraemilitos If MSNBC is not leftist media then it is complete propaganda.
Which it is: propaganda.
@Bay 17 Most of our media falls under Noam Chomsky’s concept of propaganda as “manufactured consent.” I can definitely agree with that. However MSNBC and others are not leftist. I can’t think of a single leftist outlet in America.
@umbraemilitos Well, okay. Kind of odd, but I can understand what you mean. Controlled opposition sort of thing.
Rest easy brothers Semper Fi
13 Marines, 1 Navy medic confirmed dead.
The Irony that after coming to a diplomatic agreement with the Taliban, the US will ally with the Taliban to end Isis after a dirty attack. I’ve seen this movie before.
Is so 😥 to hear that innocent children die when things like that happen
What about American military?
things like what ??? ..having democrats in control???? …yes, it is sad
The White House just put out a statement: “In keeping with diversity and inclusion in respecting the manufactured identities of all involved, we have mandated that Taliban forces will now be officially referred to as TalibanX Borderfluid Liberators.” 📺🐑
Plus we will play their anthem at all NFL games.
You should really be more thoughtful. Insidious comments indicate a deep removal from moral intellectualism.
@xavier Magnate Considering the word moral and intellectualism are not in the liberal’s wheelhouse, it is very disingenuous and hysterical for you to even play that card.
You forgot pansexual.
The dead are being instructed to identify as alive so it’s all good. As Joe said “They aren’t killing anyone yet (knock on wood) “
There will be great suffering as a result of this!
Let’s have a moment of silence for the 12 marines and navy medic that died😔😔😔
Its Taliban reporting. They just told you its probably not true. That means for sure. They’re all getting on planes and coming home. God bless our amazing president Biden!!
Open borders . what’s next? 9,11 I hope I’m wrong
“That’s information from the Taliban so we need to take it with a grain of salt”.
That’s rich, coming from a US news source in regard to a US war zone.
