    We tend to forget that back in the 80’s the United States trained and armed them so they could fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan for almost ten years before the Soviet Union also withdrew from Afghanistan! It’s sad to say the United States past foreign policies have created many of our future problems.

    So his point is not “leave nobody behind” but rather “look how many we got out”?

    could Biden have done better? sure but dont let hind sight cloud your opinion on this. saying this like “oh everyone knew so and so would have happened” is just being disingenuous

    This stuff desperately needs to be put on network TV during the regular show. These Tooning Out The News bits are the kind of REAL harder hitting content that America needs. So many gems here:

    “Half the jets are women”

    That’s great satire of the insane CIA diversity videos they put out to try and plaster over their abysmal history of sowing violence and destruction in places like Afghanistan and Latin America.

    “Ahh forget it I’ll just go become a CNN contributor”

    Great takedown of all of these “news” outlets that use LITERAL former CIA agents and former military officials that now LITERALLY work for the defense industry to talk about “how bad it is that we’re withdrawing”.

    PLEASE put these on TV.

    Team Colbert didn’t surprise us. If Trump was president during this major humanitarian crisis, with people falling off planes, thousands of Afghan allies waiting outside airport, no security, no conditions that respect human dignity, we would see a very different animation here. They basically support the administration in every mistake, and good things too which is fine.
    Nobody says let’s make war forever, make a proper exit, proper meaning no rushing, enough time to evacuate people. Problem is our allies are being hunted by Taliban and won’t be let out of the country although they worked with US, they risked everything and they have proper papers but we are told, it’s what it is. End of story.
    Fox would also come into defence of Trump if this happened under his leadership, probably say these afghans are responsible, well you guys are the same thing, no integrity, no god damn spline.

    US government knew about the Afghanistan government was corrupted and they didn’t do anything about it in the past 20 years.

    As a Bernard brethren, I am pleasantly surprised that I’ve had to vigorously defend Biden on a foreign policy issue.

    It’s sadly funny because it’s true.

    Are those plane cartoons supposed to represent the F-16s, that Joe-Obama gave to Taliban? Pretty funny, to Democrats
