2. Man ... this is really not good

for the lost and their families and loved ones

Taliban is already failing in it's promise to stop the terrorists in their country and we're not even gone yet.

Going to be a lot of pressure on Biden over this, from all quarters.

Including pressure to retaliate.

5. Deaths, that's what they wanted to accomplish

They wanted to see the infidels humiliated and defeated, they wanted to disrupt the evacuation and watch Americans, our allies, and Afghans who are “turning their back” on living under sharia law die.

6. Well

First off, they aren't interested in "gain", they are interested in revenge. They also hate the Taliban, the former Afghan government, and the US. Their "gain" is to sow as much chaos as possible.

8. Ask the Saudis and UAE

Who help foot the bill for ISIS. They love Trump and the Republicans, because they can be bought, want to bomb Iran, and are against green energy.

MBS wants the Republicans back in charge, and he will use their proxies (like Iran uses Hamas).

9. That makes sense.

They're doing it to undermine Biden and put the Reeps back
in charge.

7. I'll say that CNN was actually presenting fair reporting...

For a change…had a group on saying that the mission needs to continue and they weren’t bashing Biden like MSNBC was doing…I have lost all respect for Andrea Mitchell, all she did was bash Biden and Chuck Todd can just go away…ugh!
