By now, it has been widely reported that the Biden administration fully acquiesced to the Taliban’s demands, withdrawing all American troops one day in advance of the August 31 deadline.
However, while Biden may forget about all the damage that he’s caused in Afghanistan (assuming he is even remotely aware of it in the first place), the fact remains that an absolute arsenal of taxpayer-funded military hardware now lies within the Taliban’s hands.
Given that the Taliban scored items such as Black Hawk helicopters and countless military assault rifles, it is safe to say that the Biden administration has literally equipped terrorists to wreak havoc across the Middle East, not to mention other locations.
Which is precisely why Trump issued a clawback challenge to Biden.
Trump is not terribly impressed by Biden’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, to put it mildly, though he’s offered him a challenge that just might mitigate one of the many negative effects of the crisis.
“Never in history has a withdrawal from war been handled so badly or incompetently as the Biden Administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan … In addition to the obvious, ALL EQUIPMENT should be demanded to be immediately returned to the United States, and that includes every penny of the $85 billion dollars in cost.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Frankly, all equipment should be returned, considering the extent of it.
After all, while the Pentagon apparently doesn’t have “an exact figure” regarding the number of weapons taken over by the Taliban, it can be safely estimated that the Taliban now has over 360,000 assault rifles, alongside thousands of Humvees and trucks.
Rather convenient, especially if the terrorist organization decides to start engaging in massive black market operations across the entire region.
If they haven’t done so already, that is.
However, considering that Biden scrambled to meet the Taliban’s demands, even evacuating American troops a full day in advance (despite shamelessly leaving behind hundreds of citizens in doing so), it is unlikely that Biden is going to follow through with Trump’s challenge.
Which is precisely why Trump issued an additional challenge to Biden, should he find recouping weapons to be too complicated of an issue beyond his pay grade.
“If it is not handed back, we should either go in with unequivocal Military force and get it, or at least bomb the hell out of it … Nobody ever thought such stupidity, as this feeble-brained withdrawal, was possible!” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Ironically, Trump himself likely predicted just how “feeble-brained” Biden would be, though the outrageously dishonest media didn’t bother to report on any of these concerns when Biden was “campaigning” from his basement.
Moreover, had Trump actually been in office now rather than Biden, it is abundantly obvious that the Taliban wouldn’t have seized multiple billions of dollars’ worth of American military equipment.
After all, not only do Taliban have full control of Afghanistan once again, but they also are flush with capital and weaponry, courtesy of the Biden administration.
It is unlikely that Biden will deign to take Trump’s challenge, though he should certainly keep in mind the potential ramifications of continuing to dodge Afghanistan or act as if it doesn’t exist.
For instance, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has already warned the Biden administration that the debacle in Afghanistan is far from over, no matter how much the administration may wish for it not to be so.
“While President Biden retreats from Afghanistan in order to meet the Taliban’s arbitrary deadline of August 31, he is abandoning American civilians still stranded there … The Commander-in-Chief should not take orders from terrorists.” [Source: OANN]
McCarthy also added that impeachment very well may end up on the table, depending on what else the GOP uncovers.
Mitch McConnell has also blasted the Afghanistan withdrawal as “worse than Saigon,” which is a refreshing change from his typical loggerheads with Trump.
Ultimately, Biden is clearly not only unfit, but also quite dangerous, as likely no one could have imagined an American president kowtowing to the Taliban less than 20 years after the anniversary of 9/11/01 …
