Americans are Understandably Not Happy! by The Elephant's Child

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday blocked the House of Representatives from publicly reading the names of the 13 U.S. soldiers who were killed in the attack last week in Afghanistan. There are quite a few veterans of the War in Afghanistan serving in the House, who know Afghanistan well. House Democrats refused to recognize Republican veterans on the House Floor to read the names of our fallen service members. Clearly, Speaker Pelosi doesn’t want any more attention called to the mess that Joe Biden has created in Afghanistan. Nearly 40 House members have called for President Biden to resign. That, however, would make Kamala Harris the president and requires some serious second thought. If that happened and you impeached Harris, you would get Nancy Pelosi as your president, as she is next in line. Estimates of how much military equipment we have left for the Taliban come in at around $80 billion worth, but they vary a lot. You may want to search to see if you can find out just what we left behind. It’s fairly frightening. They are now well equipped, at our expense. Planes, helicopters, humvees, trucks. Brilliantly irresponsible job. How much training they have had in using our equipment hasn’t been mentioned. I thought there were ways to disable vehicles easily. Sugar in the gas tank? I have no idea. Sounds like no attempt was made in the rush to get out.

Jen Psaki claimed that there were 11,000 Americans left behind, or perhaps more in the whole country. but I don’t know that to be an authoritative number. My appreciation for Ms. Psaki is on the low side. She did say that we are prioritizing American citizens. Sometime after Ms. Psaki’s press conference the number dropped to 6,000, so we have no idea.

Many of the Afghans we are bringing to the U.S. are unvetted, but the Biden administration is putting them carefully in swing states, in case we help them to become citizens and enabled to vote. Some things are more important to plan ahead on than others.

Lots of calls for resignations of everyone from military officers to politicians. Americans are, understandably, not happy.

Here’s one list I found of the equipment we left for the Taliban!
