“[Afghani immigrant] Khil was abducted in December, when she was 3 years old, while she was at a playground at the 9400 block of Fredericksburg Road with her mother, according to The Texas Department of Public Safety and San Antonio Police Department.”
The beat goes on
Putin may have bit off more than he can chew. Sort of like Afghanistan, which the Russians also lost, like we did. He’s divided his army into four wings, hundreds of miles apart, each with their own resupply problems. And the Ukrainians seem to be fighting back successfully, at least in the initial stages.
I don’t blame Slippery Joe one bit for this war. Putin certainly wanted it, as part of his bid to reconstitute the old Soviet Union. Now Big Joey will have to tread carefully to avoid Putin throwing a nuke or two our way. That could include stopping arms shipments to the Ukrainians. Probably should include it, just to be on the safe side.
I hope we don’t get involved directly. We can’t afford to be nuked. Nor to respond with nukes.
“At least six chartered planes are attempting to evacuate these Americans and others from Mazar-i-Sharif International Airport, but the Taliban is reportedly preventing them from taking off….Rep. Michael McCaul (R., Texas), lead Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, who has received classified briefings on the matter, told Fox News on Sunday morning that there are hundreds of American still trapped in Afghanistan and that the “Taliban want something in exchange” for letting these people leave.”
Just the latest in Slippery Joe’s continuing Afghanistan debacle. When the State Department isn’t blocking it.
“Which general allowed more than $85 billion in American weapons to fall to the Taliban — a sum equal to the price of seven new U.S. aircraft carriers?”
And etcetera. And losing Americans’ trust. How long before recruiting crumbles?

“Since the 1980s, Joe Biden has been lying like a rug—and didn’t care. Let’s circle back to his civil rights movement lie, where his aides told him during his 1988 presidential run that his tales on the stump were false. He didn’t care.”
Let’s hope his fantasy world doesn’t include nukes.
…said Biden was a loser: “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.”
So Afghanistan is not a one-off. We have many more to look forward to.
“Anger is the first stop for a dementia patient when they are cornered. His lashing out at all us “lying dog-faced pony soldiers” is not unexpected. The real problem is that he is in a position to have made this mess.
“Stolen elections have consequences.”
