I cannot IMAGINE whatever gave them the idea that this would be a good time to attack <eyerollgif.jpg>

That's the first time I have seen the words "US government" and "intelligence" in the same sentence for a long time.

Well, maybe Americans shouldn't have wasted blood and treasure trying to conquer a country that 98% couldn't even point out on a map.

Let's be honest, all that money spent and all those American lives lost was a complete waste but hey, at least Halliburton made billions of dollars..

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Money well spent.


The only way to wipe out the taliban would have been to wipe out pakistan while we're at it. And saudi arabia royal family and wahabist sect once and for all.

No political will in Senate to respond to Russians paying Taliban to kill American soldiers.

Almost like Mitch McConnell cannot be trusted to take threats to American soldiers seriously.

Too bad it's not 2001 so we can not do that now instead of 2020 where we already did it; or did you have something useful to offer?

You're right. Better not vote for him again.

Let me guess, you supported the war in 2001 and now you're butthurt because it was a massive colossal failure?

No, just pointing out it's much too late to unwind that particular clock. We all knew it was a bad idea...but it's way past time to not do it.

One's a religious fanatic, living in a shiathole, committing terrorist acts to create a theocracy...

...the other one's the same but wearing a hijab.

One of them is in a position to do us imminent harm, the other is in Afghanistan.

One is well-trained and ready to die for her cause. The other is looking for the manager.

Only the Afghan people can defeat the Taliban, ultimately. I hate to say it. The US farked up bad, and at least parts of the government of Pakistan are very determined to get another Taliban government that they have influence over.

So yeah, it's gonna suck. Sorry, people of Afghanistan. Most likely the Taliban will reconquer Afghanistan with the help of Pakistan.

One will likely blow herself up in service of her master (because women are 2nd class citizens according to their fundamentalist interpretation of the Religion of Peace) the other is freelybexercising her 2A rights?
