No, this is not hyperbole.
We are in negotiations with the leading jurist in the Muslim Brotherhood, a man who has called for Islamic defeat of Europe and the US, issued a fatwa for the killing of Americans in Iraq, calls suicide bombers “heroic martyrs,” and demands a global Islamist caliphate. And Obama is SURRENDERING to him.
We evidently have doubled-down on Idiot Joe Biden’s line that the Taliban are not our enemy.
We are releasing Afghan prisoners from GITMO and sending them back to Afghanistan – your tax dollars at work.
If any parent with a child nearing military age allows them to go into the military service of the United States, they are INSANE. And, yes, I have served. Once I was proud enough of the American military to get myself appointed to and attend the USAF Academy. Now I would NEVER allow my children to join the US military in ANY capacity that might get them close to the fight. And I lack any respect for those senior officers who not only have turned the US military into a Palace Guard, but who also refuse to defend the Constitution – their ONLY Constitutional duty – from Obama and the Democrats, both domestic enemies of that Constitution beyond a shadow of a doubt.
If any parent who had a child who made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan does not act against the current American regime, then that parent has less honor than their child had in laying down his or her life for freedom.
And if any nation still believes America to be a trusted ally they are CRAZY.
This is what happens when Democrats are at the levers of power.
In 1973 we negotiated a ceasefire with North Vietnam. This included a recognized demarcation between North and South Vietnam, and an agreement that America would replace weapons and ammo used-up by the South in defending themselves, keeping a parity of weapons as deterrence, and keeping the South free.
The Democrat Senate ratified this treaty.
In 1975, following the next mid-term election, Democrats ceased funding this treaty – one they ratified. American stopped sending weapons and ammo to a nation for whom we had sacrificed over 58,000 Americans, and to whom we had given our WORD that we would continue to arm so that they could defend themselves.
And Vietnam fell and MILLIONS of people were killed by the VC and NVA.
During the Civil War, “Copperheads” were Democrats who decided the fight was too tough and wanted to quit and let the South secede and slavery remain. It’s not as though Democrats have only recently begun to be cowards in every sense of the word.
Once American leaders said and believed:
“I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.” — George Washington
“I have not yet begun to fight.” — John Paul Jones
“Give me liberty or give me death.” — Patrick Henry
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” — JFK
Now we have leaders of the most powerful economy and military in the history of the known universe, the freest people ever to walk the globe… and we surrender to 7th-Century idiots who behead their POWs, kill their own daughters, treat their women worse than dogs AND LET THEIR GIRLS BURN TO-DEATH IN A BUILDING RATHER THAN GET OUT WITHOUT A BURKHA ON, marry adult men to 9-yr-old girls, refuse to educate half their population, build ski slopes in the desert while their people live in squalor, and have a literacy rate of under 50%.
And yet there are actually American WOMEN who support this despicable politicaly party…
Did I support fighting in Afghanistan? I supported waging war against them as they had proven to be our enemies and the enemies of freedom and liberty. But combat is not war. Wars are won by destroying the enemy and their infrastructure completely and totally. Americans won every single battle in Vietnam – but we lost the war. We NEVER had realistic RoE in Afghanistan, and as soon as that became widely evident, there was no reason to stay and die when we weren’t serious about winning.
And wars end only one of two ways: One side destroys the other, or one side tires of the fight. In American history only the Civil War and WW2 were won; in all other military endeavors one side or the other has walked-away.
If America is not going to fight to win, then no reason at all exists to fight and kill and die.
Afghanistan is why nuclear weapons were invented. Destroy the enemy at zero loss to American lives. ANY OTHER WAY OF WAGING WAR IS IMMORAL. How many children will not be born to the American fallen? How many Gates and Jobs and Trumans and JFKs and Warhols and Faulkners and Hemingways have we lost – and will never know?
For WHAT? So we could surrender to the 7th Century?!?
And now we tire and walk-away from Afghanistan. And those who collaborated with America and our allies, those who bravely fought for their own freedom and liberty? They will be the first casualties.. and Democrats will stand idly by.
If there is a more shameful or despicable party and dishonorable people than American Democrats they are not visible to me in modern history.
Had MY son been lost in Afghanistan…..
