Biden has really blown it now.
After all, the European elitists, who for the most part demonstrated a derisive attitude towards Trump, have finally woken up to the fact that Biden is hardly their knight in shining armor from the other side of the pond.
In fact, more than one of them appears quite pissed off that Biden has dared to blame the Afghanis for the catastrophe currently unfolding across the Middle East, including British MP Tom Tugendhat, who previously served in Afghanistan.
Needless to say, Tugendhat vehemently disagrees with Biden’s pathetic blame game, and he also calls out Biden directly for not putting his own skin in the game.
“I was never prouder than when I was decorated by the [US] 82nd airborne after the capture of Musa Qala. It was a huge privilege, a huge privilege to be recognized by such an extraordinary unit in combat …
To see their commander-in-chief call into question the courage of men I fought with, to claim they ran. It’s shameful … Those who have not fought for the colors they fly should be careful about criticizing those who have.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
“Those who have not fought for the colors they fly …”
Tugendhat is right on target, and that’s a rather brilliant assessment of Biden’s bumbling half a century in Washington, which has now culminated in a far worse fiasco than Saigon, at least if loudmouth Liz Cheney is to be believed.
Tugendhat also weighed in on how he felt upon seeing Kabul fall, which brought back a host of painful memories and emotions.
Feelings upon Kabul falling
“The feeling of abandonment, of not just a country but the sacrifice that my friends made … [I’ve seen] good men go into the earth, taking with a part of me and a part of all of us.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
It is complete abandonment, on such a scale that Biden has thrown NATO into a tailspin.
In a nutshell, the United States is now perceived as completely unreliable, courtesy of Biden’s latest boondoggle. It was only a matter of time before he replicated the border crisis on a global scale, and Europeans are not having it
According to an anonymous European official, Biden basically blew off all allies in making “his” decision to withdrawal.
“At the moment when the Biden administration took over earlier this year, most of the European allies, they preferred to keep a very limited military presence … The Biden administration decided that they wanted to complete the withdrawal … They were willing to talk to allies, to listen to them, but the decision was still their decision.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Furthermore, European Union High Rep Josep Borrell amplified these words by hinting that Europe needs to find a way forward in geopolitical relations … without the United States.
“I think that what has happened shows that Europe needs to develop this famous ‘strategic autonomy’ in order to be ready to face challenges that affect us eventually.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
The United States also needs to develop a way to keep leftists in their place, given the havoc and misery they are wreaking upon everyone.
In addition, British national security adviser Peter Ricketts also ripped the United States’ abrupt moves in Afghanistan to the core, blasting Biden for his “unliteral decisions” (looks like Biden can’t achieve unity internationally either, but just consider the home front).
“It looks like NATO has been completely overtaken by American unilateral decisions … The Afghanistan operation was always going to end sometime. It was never going to go on forever. But the manner in which it’s been done has been humiliating and damaging to NATO.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Tugendhat also concurs, and he is already imagining a future with no United States, given the total lack of reliability that Biden has just demonstrated.
“We can set out a vision, clearly articulate it, for reinvigorating our European NATO partners, to make sure that we are not dependent on a single ally, on the decision of a single leader, that that we can work together with Japan and Australia, France and Germany, with partners large and small and make sure we hold the line together.”[Source: The Daily Wire]
In other words, Biden tears the line apart, which warrants his removal.
What will this mean in terms of long-term international implications for the United States?
One shudders to contemplate …
