Guys, President Handsome Joe Biden says that the forever war in Afghanistan will conclude on symbolically important September 11:
“We cannot continue the cycle of extending or expanding our military presence in Afghanistan hoping to create ideal conditions for the withdrawal, and expecting a different result. I am now the fourth United States president to preside over an American troop presence in Afghanistan. Two Republicans. Two Democrats. I will not pass this responsibility onto a fifth.”
The Hawks in the GQP are not happy, as you can imagine.
The most important former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs in our nation’s history, maybe ever and 3rd-ranking GOP member of the House, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming, Blam-Blam’s daughter) called the decision a “huge propaganda victory for the Taliban, for al-Qaeda.” And we should remember that her daddy Blam-Blam is big reason we were there to begin with.
But I digest…
No one was as unhappy as Senatorette Lindsey Graham who shrieks that another 9/11 is coming our way because of this decision:
“A full withdrawal from Afghanistan is dumber than dirt and devilishly dangerous. President Biden will have, in essence, cancelled an insurance policy against another 9/11.”
Graham went on
Thumbhead’s, er, Hannity’s show to shriek some more:
Biden is “paving the way for another 9/11. To all of you who are listening, you remember where you were at on September 11, 2001. Our military told President Biden that if you withdraw all of our forces, al-Qaeda and ISIS will come roaring back, Afghanistan will disintegrate into civil war. And we can avoid all of that by having 3,000-5,000 American forces making sure that ISIS and al-Qaeda never come back to hurt us. He rejected that advice.”
And in case anyone missed his histrionics, the Senatorette had a bonkers press conference where he does more than a little, uh, religious fear mongering for Possum Hollar:
And in case you didn’t fully get his point he brought props:
Senator Huckleberry Closetcase never misses a chance to butch it up for the rubes back home.
