I remember when we, the US, were SUPER concerned about 'offending Islamic Sensibilities' during our war there like striking obvious weapons dumps in Mosque and the like. I see the enemy has no such compunction about their own religion.

That's right! It's not like we spent billions upon billions fighting there for 20 years, setting up a puppet democracy, just to hand it all back to the Taliban for nothing in return

So hey - let's make all those people we lied to and abandoned suffer even more

Not. One. Dollar, because Americans are a bunch of lying cowards, murders and rapists and will gladly let hundreds of thousands of people suffer in misery and poverty because we despise the leadership WE KNOWINGLY AND WILLINGLY HANDED THEIR COUNTRY OVER TO

Future? Where you been?This has been our reality for decades now. Americans are just in denial

So get let's set some things straight:
• America is the only developed nation with no health care
• America is the only nation with a cash bail system meant to keep innocent people locked up "innocent till proven guilty" be damned
• America has a homeless epidemic unseen in any other developed nation
• American public education is already a joke, and about to get far worse or non-existent

And here's a real doozy for you:

Americans have been living under a constant state of far right extremist terrorism since the Abortion Clinic Bombings and Oklahoma City Bombing

And the amount of terrorism keeps getting more frequent as more and more terrorists resort to mass shootings because it's cheap and easy

And those far right terrorists be they Muslim or Christian all take the same sort of selfies with holy books, flags and assault rifles

Honestly, America is already a failed state, is not on par with any actual first world nation and it's people have been victimized and terrorized by the far right for decades while their government only cares about locking as many people up as possible, and getting as much lobbyist cash as they can while their working class constituents fall to poverty and apathy

They were suffering in misery and poverty before.  Misery and poverty isn't why we went in.  We went in to get terrorists, and now the terrorists and the Taliban are killing each other for us.

Mission.  F*cking.  Accomplished.

Yup you got it! Pro Russia all the way

I don't know what it's like in your head, but you are a real deranged little person

I suppose you feel so superior casting about your idiotic judgments

But rest assured I am both revolted by you and feel utter pity for you, you are indeed a sad little sack

And if you think what we did in Afghanistan and how we abandoned those people is a good thing, and that I'm pro Russia for being disgusted by yet another act of American betrayal and indifference - you are the most vile sort of "person" imaginable

So think if me what you will, because your insipid little opinions are clearly not worth a damn

Some people have this alternative version of American exceptionalism where they think life here is uniquely awful compared to the rest of the world. It's just as stupid as the other version of American exceptionalism, and for the exact same reasons.

We should have loaded up and removed the reasonable people and children in Afghanistan, wouldn't have taken more than a few planes, and then renamed it the Orbital Artillery Testing Grounds before letting the Taliban back in and watch them try to figure out the word "Orbital." Briefly.

I think you misinterpret

Just because I call out the pile of shiat that is America - with facts does not mean I hate America

I love my country, I am just disgusted with who choose to be, but know that we can be so much better

Maybe you should take a good hard look at yourself and ask why you feel offended by people calling out facts you don't like

I think that's America's biggest problem right now, thinking facts are opinions or up for debate or that someone stating facts not in line with a narrative makes that person your opposition

But thanks for the insult, it tells me the quality of you and ever you really stand - in willful ignorance

Which of your "facts" would you like to start with? Homelessness? What's the homeless rate in the US vs, say, Austrailia? France? Germany? The UK? Sweden?

Do you want to post those numbers?
