4 years of evidence suggest Trump had no plan for evacuation.

Trump had 2017 pegged for evac, but saw time wasnt right and reneged. Continued negotiating with taliban and resulted in no attacks on americans and may withdrawal. Tally knew trump could easily change his mind again and so played ball.

Also a fact how trump so successfully handled the southern border and israeli-arab issue when so many others had failed. Also see how he brought about such an historic economy. No reason to think he would handle the afghan withdrawal with any less skill. An amazing president. Maybe not a bad idea for both parties to look more outside politics for pres candidates

Now contrast Biden. He knew the media put him in the oval office and will have his back when that time comes again. He understands how decisive that is. He had no accountability and therefore removed the military b4 civilians, turned kabul security over to the taliban, left americans and allies in country, abandoned bagram, and looked at his watch multiple times during the solemn ceremony at andrews afb. We all need accountability.

Ok seriously...
Are you denying they had weeks to leave, when they knew our military was leaving and before the country went to shit?


Who's fault is it if someone gets told a hurricane is coming, evacuate and they choose to stay in their house? Should we send first responders to get them while the hurricane is hitting? At some point people need to be responsible for themselves.

They did not have weeks to leave. Biden withdrew in the middle of the night, without telling even our Afghan or NATO allies, much less alerting American citizens. The Afghan army arrived at Bagram air base to find it being looted by civilians.

"US forces in Afghanistan abandoned their main base at Bagram Air Base Friday, shutting off the lights and slipping away into the night without telling government forces who were supposed to take it over. By the time the General due to take it over arrived with troops to secure the site, looters had broken in and carried away many items that the soldiers had left behind, including laptops, stereo speakers, bicycles and guitars that were being hawked from second-hand shops by Sunday morning."

4 years of evidence suggest Trump would have only evacuated U.S. citizens and he wouldn't have gotten as many as Biden managed to get out. It wouldn't have bothered him and none of his millions of diehard supporters would have said a word against him because they are sheep who will follow him anywhere.

USA Today factchecker issues apology for saying biden didnt check his watch during the solemn ceremony at andrews afb.

This factcheck ignited a firestorm among families present who said biden checked his watch multiple times during the ceremony.

Factchecker apologized, saying he (factchecker) is only human and made a mistake.

Funny how these mistakes occur so often and always are meant to damage the republican party.

BTW, just imagine the unending uproar if trump had looked at his watch multiple times during such a ceremony.
It was just a bad day

Dont think human lives and america's reputation are nothing.
I am not sure we actually saved lives.

You think less people died because we had a 20 year war. I highly doubt that.

So why not get out of Afghanistan 4 years ago?
Or 8, 12 years ago?

Very likely should have. Although personally i can also hear the argument we shouldnt have gotten out at all.

Why do you care about a place so far away? You can’t even drive there.
I don't really care,

I don't want to pay in blood or money to occupy a country that doesn't appear to want us there.πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ

Way to go Joe. Imagine that. You can’t trust the Taliban. Who would’ve thought?

And if you can’t work with nice Taliban guys like these, who can you work with?
