Today is a sad day for America. After 20 years of trying to build a nation in Afghanistan, the Taliban is now in control of the people. The fall of Kabul to the Taliban is a repeat of the fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese -- despite a promise from President Joe Biden that it would not happen. The withdrawal of American troops was a disaster that falls squarely on the shoulders of President Joe Biden.
Biden now has the distinction of
being the worst President of the United States – bypassing even Barack Obama
and Jimmy Carter. America has lost the respect of the Taliban, ISIS, other
terrorists, enemies, and allies alike. Foreign news anchors are making jokes
about Biden’s dementia and incapability to be lead. He has humiliated America
Some Republicans are calling for an
investigation into what happens, while others are calling for the resignation
or impeachment of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. They have been in office for
eight months and have nothing to show for their time besides disasters. Afghanistan
is just one of them, but others include the crisis at the southern border, the sagging
economy, and new threats of shutdowns and mask mandates caused by the surging
Delta variant of COVID-19.
Biden is right to say that the
people of Afghanistan are responsible for fighting for their own country. The
Afghan forces that America has equipped and trained for 20 years almost immediately
gave up. If Afghan men are not willing to fight for their country, why should
American men and women fight for it?
Biden was wrong in the way that he
ordered the withdrawal of Americans from Afghanistan. For one thing, he should
have sent all Americans in Afghanistan home BEFORE he closed the military
bases. He withdrew the military personnel and then wonders why the Taliban
overthrew the government before all the Americans were out.
The bottom line is that Biden is a
disaster. He should have never run for the office of President of the United
States. He does not have the leadership skills or the mental capacity for
dealing with the stresses of such an office. His choice of a Vice President is
another disaster. I believe that both of them should resign in disgrace. If
they do not resign, they should be impeached.
