But plenty for Afghan terrorists-in-waiting.

Well here’s a day I never saw coming. I am not a fan of Rachel Maddow who I think has spread a lot of hot garbage and conspiratorial nonsense on her show over the years. In some cases, the chyrons on the screen have been used to correct her in real time.

And yet, I’m going to recommend that you watch a 12-minute clip of Rachel Maddow.

Trust me, I’m as stunned by this as you are. But in this case, I think Maddow really is on to something. While the Biden administration and some of it’s media cheerleaders on the left are claiming everything is going to be fine in Afghanistan, Maddow points out that it’s clearly not at all fine. In fact, it’s an incredible disaster which has left a lot of veterans here in the states doing what their president didn’t do, i.e. trying to make arrangements to help Afghan translators they worked with get out of the country before it’s too late.

As Maddow points out, these stories are being reported all over the country by local media outlets. In a kind of cyber-Dunkirk effort, vets are pulling strings, making calls, even sending money to help get people out.

In particular Maddow tells the story of Zak, an Afghan interpreter, and the stateside Major who, using only his phone and his computer in Rhode Island, has been trying to help get Zak and his family to Kabul airport and onto a plane. It’s a story with a lot of twists and turns but the bottom line is that this situation is clearly a clusterf**k of epic proportions.

“This is not how this is supposed to go, right?” Maddow said. She continued, “This is not the might of the US government. This is not the promise we made to people like Zak. It’s not how we were supposed to be bringing them home because getting this does not mean, oh, they’ll hop the next flight out.

“Window’s closing. Getting this wrong means theses people will get killed. And so you just keep on doing whatever you can.”

Zak and his family did make it out. And by the end of the clip, Maddow is barely able to talk because she’s so choked up by the story. If the Biden administration was hoping they could turn this disaster into a “Republicans seize” story I don’t think that’s going to work. It turns out that anyone who isn’t a complete partisan hack can see this is a huge mess. In his Instagram post the American soldier said he took a calculated risk to put Zak’s face out there so people would understand there were real people at stake in this mess.

    So is it being said that we MUST bring in tens of thousands of Afghanis to this country because they helped us during the war? Sorry, but I do not see it that way. They were NOT helping us…we were helping them. We gave them 20 years and BILLIONS of our treasure (that we sure could have used for Americans) in order for them to learn to stand on their own and defend themselves from the taliban or any other radical nitwits that think they can waltz in and take over.

    Now, granted, I do believe the withdrawal was a clusterfuck soup sandwich and most definitely could have gone better. For starters, how about not advertising when we were leaving, so the enemy could plan the attack when Afghanistan was most vulnerable.

    So, these Afghanis complain that we did not support them when the taliban came, but I have to ask one big question, did they even try? Yes, American air support and other such support was no longer available, but damn, you would think that the Afghan army could put up enough of a fight so that the taliban at least had a tough time taking over. I mean hell, after 20 years of training and ALL THE LATEST MILITARY EQUIPMENT we gave them, there should be lots of dead taliban and it have taken weeks and months to take over. The Afghan army crumbled like a paper boat in a typhoon. Did they not learn anything? Could they at least stood their ground and fought a bit before running like school girls jilted at prom?

    Remember, they were not helping us…we were helping them. And dammit they didn’t learn shit it appears. During the Revolutionary War, the French came over and lent a hand in helping us fight the British. If we lost that war, would anyone expect the French to start shipping Americans over to France to become French citizens? Nope!!! The French would have told us, “Hey, we helped as best we could, but we have our own people to care about, and they come first, we tried, you failed…Good Luck on whatever happens next”.

    Let’s face it, Afghanistan and its people are NOT ready to change to whatever modern standards we have today. They are stuck in the 7th century, and will only change when they decide to change. Not when any other country sticks their noses in their business and tells them.

    We gave them 20 years, billions of dollars, and thousands of our boys’ lives, and they have done nothing with it. It is time to GTFO and they can sink or swim. They gave them all the tools needed, but the one thing we could not give them was the will. That is up to them, and they chose to lay down, or most likely, join the enemy. How many of these supposed muslim “friends” who were supposedly helping us, actually hated our guts? They smiled at us and took our money and the benefits we offered them, but secretly, how many passed on secret info, stole, “lost” weapons that ended up in the taliban’s possession?

    We owe them nothing. If anything, they owe us. What the hell did we get for our efforts? Name ont damned thing of benefit to America that came out of Afghanistan…cause I cannot for the life of me think of anything.

    It is time for America to stop playing world police. We are tired (and broke) from helping those that do not appreciate our help. And where are these same assholes when America is in need? No one helps us, so why do we waste our time and money on those that will give nothing in return.

    From now on, America first. I no longer want to win the hearts and minds of foreign people who hate America. I want their blood and guts if they make the mistake of thinking they can attack us and run away. And if we HAVE to go off to some third world shitstain country due to some terrorist nonsense committed against us, we let the military do what it is best at…blow shit up and kill motherf&%kers. After that, we leave…no kiss on the cheek and no money on the dresser.

    Mad Cow’s an America hating Lesbo who shares another commonality with her fucking commie pal Joy Behar and many of their other tribe members. The signs are low-esteem, savage dispositions and bulbous noses.
