Are U.S. Political Leaders Killing American Pride?
Is there need for more proof of how morally bankrupt American political leaders of both sides are?
What does it mean when the greatest empire on the planet has to ask the Taliban to spare its American Embassy during their siege of Kabul?
How disheartening when the carrot being dangled in front of the Taliban to make them think deep and hard is “Maintaining Robust Diplomatic Engagement”?
The Biden administration officials are reportedly asking the Taliban to overlook the American embassy in Kabul when the terrorist group invades the city to topple the country’s government and reassert the supreme rule of Sharia law.
The news that officials were asking the terrorist organization to abstain from attacking the embassy came from two unnamed sources who spoke with The New York Times on Thursday. The State Department added in a statement the same day, “We are withdrawing our forces from Afghanistan, but we are not withdrawing from Afghanistan. Although U.S. troops will depart, the United States will maintain our robust diplomatic engagement with Afghanistan.”
President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he stood by his April decision to finish withdrawing U.S. troops from the country by Sept. 11.
“Look, we spent over a trillion dollars over 20 years, we trained and equipped with modern equipment over 300,000 Afghan forces,” the president told reporters. “Afghan leaders have to come together. They’ve got to fight for themselves, fight for their nation.”
In the meantime, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Thursday afternoon that the U.S. would send 3,000 military personnel to Afghanistan to assist in evacuating the Kabul embassy, with the exception of a “core diplomatic presence.” Those troops are expected to arrive before the end of the weekend.
Taliban forces captured the city of Ghazni earlier in the day, bringing them within 95 miles of the country’s capital. Intelligence officials had expected it to be at least several months before the Taliban posed a threat to Kabul. Revised estimates suggest the terror group’s devout members — numbered at as many as 85,000 — could arrive in a matter of weeks.
