When will the communities outside of Islam wake up?
What did we do wrong – we trained the Afghan army, gave them equipment and they refused to fight the Taliban – and ran when they heard the Taliban were coming – and now they will fight with the Taliban against the non-Muslim world? Are we that stupid that we continue to try to change their religion and their way of life? Remember they could not read or write or recognize colors. So how did they communicate with the Americans?
Didn’t Austin/Milley say the Afghans’ were a top notch army?
Now we want to bring them all to the U.S. and a free ride for life paid for by the taxpayer. Time to train our Military to stop playing stupid or is that the Democrat’s plans? Austin and Milley are socialist put in place by Biden/Obama after ejecting all conservatives in the Military.
Nearly 90 retired generals and admirals call on Lloyd Austin and Mark Milley to resign
Nearly 90 retired generals and admirals have called on Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley to resign after overseeing the debacle that was President Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.
The letter, released by the group Flag Officers 4 America, states that “the hasty retreat has left an unknown number of Americans stranded in dangerous areas controlled by a brutal enemy.” The group’s letter notes that Austin and Milley “were the top two military officials in a position to recommend against the dangerous withdrawal,” and that even if they did all they could to prevent Biden from going forward with it, they should still resign out of conscience.
Two weeks ago, Austin said that the Defense Department would move everyone we possibly can out of Afghanistan “until the clock runs out or we run out of capability.” This was not such a hard promise to keep, yet it has already been broken even though the clock has not run out. Moreover, the greatest military in the world should not “run out of capability” at all when it comes helping Americans stranded in a country controlled by the Taliban.
Ultimately, anywhere from 100 to 200 Americans who wanted to leave the country were stranded by the Biden administration, by its own numbers. Austin also confirmed that the Taliban was preventing some Americans from getting to the airport.
Milley has apparently spent more time studying “white rage” than he has spent on Afghanistan. Like Biden, he contended that the Taliban’s takeover was unexpected. He also, like Biden, blamed the situation on the Afghan army, which has taken more casualties causalities fighting the Taliban in 2021 alone than the U.S. has taken since the war began. This despite the fact that the Biden administration pulled their air support and the contractors who serviced the Afghan air force.
Aside from Biden himself, Austin and Milley bear the most responsibility for the botched withdrawal. They either failed to understand what was happening in Afghanistan or they failed to convince Biden to see it. Either way, they failed. There is no way either of them should continue in this administration.
