Not exactly leaving in the same manner as when they left Vietnam but this can end up with the same result and all those that lost their lives in Afghanistan could be all in vain, The Taliban say they won't attack as long as foriegn forces leave is very similar to what the Viet Cong an North Vietnamese said when the US left in 1973.

When questioned on it by a reporter in a store, on camera Biden came across as confused and had to refer to notes.

This doesn't bode well but hardly surprising. The US is now reaping what it sowed: weak and confused leadership being taken advantage of by the many rogue states.
Biden is C-in-C of US Forces, with supreme operational command and control over all military personnel. But... he delegates responsibility. That's how it works, Jinx. No rogue state is able to take advantage of the United States because of an aging figurehead, be it Biden or Reagan, too many checks and balances in place for that to happen.

Did anyone else catch Sleepy's town hall on CNN last night?

Oh my effin god. The poor guy is taking it to another level. If you're curious, go catch the highlights on YouTube.

Just watched his Covid answers. Jesus Navas. 🤦‍♂️

If Trump had spouted that tripe the media would have been all over him.

The poor fellow appears several apples short of a picnic on the evidence of that appearance.

And I thought Bunter was bad.

Yeah, you'll have to catch it quick. The MSM are doing their very best to suppress it like it never happened. A bit like Led Zep at Live Aid '84. There's a few clips left on youtube....for now:


Don't think the Clinton News Network will be organising another one of those in a hurry! lolz. The poor guy needs his kids & wife to consider his nursing home options, but there he is...the leader of the free world....pmsl.

Clips like these are playing right into the Republicans hands, The Democrats Southern Border policy is not working with record numbers of migrants trying to get in and more children being locked up too, Crime in many cities has exploded with so far 10k homicides, Gun ownership has gone through the roof. The US today is a very divided and in some places a more dangerous place to be.

Interesting that despite the president's pro-democracy rhetoric he's largely silent on what's happening in Tunisia at the moment. Obama did similar (that being nothing) from memory during the Egypt uprising. EU have been toothless also. This will only spell trouble for the wider region.
