Taliban Celebrates With Mock Funeral For US And NATO [Video]
The Taliban celebrated defeating the United States with a mock funeral parade. Complete with caskets draped with both an American flag and a NATO flag. This comes as news that Biden was aware Afghanastans's army was crumbling before he decided to withdraw.
A fighter and religious leader for the Taliban sitting in Bagram airbase boasted to The Times that he hoped the Taliban could spread their jihad “further into the region and Muslim world”:
"Never in our wildest dreams could we have believed we could beat a superpower like America with just our Kalashnikovs. When you do jihad all doors open. We defeated America with our faith and our guns and we hope now that Bagram can be a base for jihad for all Muslims. For any foreign power considering attacking Afghanistan then look at Bagram now and learn your lesson well before embarking on foolish endeavor. See the West’s mighty technology humbled here by mujahidin. In 15 years as a mujahid fighting the Americans I wondered often if I may fail or die. Yet here is proof of the power of faith and God and jihad. On the back of victory I hope we can use Bagram as a place to spread jihad further into the region and Muslim world."
To make matters worse, Biden couldn't even get the evacuation right. It was Biden who set the deadline of August 31st as the final day the US would officially leave Afghanistan. The Taliban dared him to stay a day more and the coward didn't even think about asking for more time. Now we have confirmed that there are Americans still trapped there.
But don't worry... It 'happens all the time', according to Biden's general.
On Monday, Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, head of United States Central Command (CENTCOM), confirmed there were Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan still on the ground in or near Kabul, and they numbered in the “very low hundreds.”
“We did not get out everybody we had wanted to get out,” McKenzie admitted Monday, adding that diplomatic measures will likely be needed to extract Americans left behind.
“It’s not completely unlike the way we do it elsewhere around the world,” Kirby said when asked how the Biden Administration plans to extract its own citizens from Afghanistan. “We have Americans that get stranded in countries all the time, and we do everything we can to try to facilitate safe passage.”
The general is conveniently not saying that those Americans aren't stranded in hostile, terrorist ran regions surrounded by militants.
I seriously fear the level of commitment, or potential lack of it, that the Biden administration will show in rescuing those stranded Americans. In his short time as commander and chief, Biden has proven to me that he's incapable of following through with anything successfully.
