    “Biden abandons cherished Military-Industrial Complex”
    not really. did he made military budget cuts? No. he will still buy the bombs and tanks. It’s just that those tanks will be parked in US.

    Well, technically, you weren’t at war with Afghanistan, you were supporting legitimate Afghan government to fight terrorists called Taliban. And you stopped combat missions in 2014 so you weren’t in war practically since 2014. All you did was hand over Afghanistan to terrorists and totally demolish US reputation in the process.

    Biden has doing a great job as a President so far, but let’s remember that the GOP started it all, when Bush was president.

    Afghanistan Government and It’s Military not standing up when the USA and other nations left:

    a. Either a massive intelligence failure of the CIA, DOD, etc for not knowing the Afghanistan Government and it’s Military would do this (cut and run), or if they did know, not passing that information on.; and/or
    b. The US leadership (Political and Military) possibly knowing Afghanistan would do this, but lying to the American people (of which sad to say, the US leadership has been known to do on numerous occasions); and/or
    c. The US leadership (Political and Military) possibly not knowing Afghanistan would do this, (some leaders just out of touch with total reality).

    In any case, it’s a problem for ‘We The People’ of whom the entire US Government is supposed to be working for.

    So, we can cut our military budget now, right?

  • nsn 1 year ago

    The military-industrial complex will not go down easily. Engel is wrong in saying that Afghanistan was a republic. It was an American military outpost propping up a sleleton with a giant pipe into the federal budget.
