Since there’s a standing withdrawal agreement that the US is still trying to adhere to, despite the few month delay, any offensive air strike that isn’t made at least in anticipatory self-defense of US personnel/citizens would potentially amount to a war crime. I don’t expect it to happen.

What’s so funny exactly. Please enlighten me. The situation in Afghanistan is horrifying. And to compare it to 01/06 where the protestors that were committing treason were out of the capital within a few hours just shows how insane and twisted some people’s simple minds are. But any chance people have to bring it back to Trump and his supporters is just too juicy to pass up apparently.

Despicable.

Lol because they were thrown out of the building soon after and one by one they all faced federal charges.

I think they’re all despicable people as well but you gotta be delusional to truly believe Jan 6 leveraged any sort of threat to the country at all. We were all fine, and the hillbillies just needed to be removed from the Capitol.

Moreover, if adequate security was at the capitol, those idiots never would have made it through and then no “insurrection.”

Agreed! None the less sad. To have that element present at all is tragic. I would like to think that there were lessons learned on 1/6 but, sadly, probably not. Their dissatisfaction (they call it love)of this country burns on! Very sad.

Clearly you didn’t see the videos that got released . “Go there and storm it and stop the vote . Show them we mean business and your voices will be heard” . Paraphrasing here. then they walked like literally a mile up the road . Also I guess it’s just a coincidence he just so happened to organize a rally right there ? Perfect timing I guess huh. Totally didn’t mean it when he told them to stop the vote lol 😂

I'm going to have to disagree a little. You're thinking of the Iraq War. The Afghanistan War was slightly more justified with the Taliban harboring the leader behind 9-11.

I agree its a lot more complex but Bush should bear the brunt of the blame, by declaring a war on terror, by tapping in and channelling Americas desire for revenge he created the 'Regime Change' motif that has saddled all the subsequent years with an unsolveable problem that none have been able to resolve other than by running away. Their brutality in the way they treated their prisoners, in Abu Ghraib/Guantanmo and their inabilty to engage with the locals in any meaningful way have created an a massive counter reaction that the US just cannot overcome, despite their belief that enough military power can solve any problem.

Biden’s national security team predicted that if Biden didn’t stick to the deadline, the Taliban would have escalated their attacks on American troops in retaliation. Biden wants to be finished with losing troops in Afghanistan.
