    You have no idea what i think about anything.

    If you wish to move the goal posts as you usually do, please continue.

    Though if you are to woke, to understand, what's happening here and the growing outrage this is causing, you possibly live in a hole.

    You barely think.

    You are blaming Biden for something Trump started and conveniently ignoring that fact whilst invoking clearly fake concern for the people of Afghanistan. You're simply parroting right-wing talking points you barely even comprehend.

    The world Police and its President had every opportunity to re-negotiate the agreement, as previously stated.

    Did Trump tell Biden to do a runner? did Trump tell Biden not to have an exit plan, Did Trump tell Biden to forget about the 38 million people, the list could go and on.

    What is it about you not understanding about the present and dwelling on the past

    Yes I'm sure the world population know about Trump and his Fuk ups, but please don't blaming the past for the future

    Don't be so fucking stupid.

    There is no agreement with these neanderthals.

    They will be back up to their old tricks in no time, only now you can try and blame it on the US.

    You're basically cheerleading for them so you can whine about America more.

    Yes Helge they do seem to get very excited by being in the wrong. and as usual they not have any debating skills just insults and crying about the past

    Its OK Trump was bad, but this new President will go down as the quickest President to be kicked out of office

    Chico, you won the Internet today, for THE most idiotic statement. To “renegotiate”, was not an option. The violence that we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks would have been magnified, tenfold If the US had dragged their heels.
    As Harry said, the Taliban doesn’t negotiate, and they certainly don’t “renegotiate”.
    How do you have a withdrawal agreement when the most affected party, is not even at the negotiating table?

    I think you may find Biden was reported to review the agreement, so don't see what's idiotic about a statement that was already reported.

    White House to review landmark US-Taliban deal for peace talks with Kabul

    The Taliban don't negotiate? they have recently visited China, Russia, and Iran with successful negotiations.

    Biden digs in with fervent defense of Afghanistan withdrawal

    Biden addresses nation about end of Afghanistan war





    Senate passes bill to expand assistance for Americans returning from Afghanistan


    The Senate on Tuesday passed a bill that will increase funding available to provide temporary assistance to Americans returning from Afghanistan.

    Why it matters: The bill — approved by the House last month — will allocate up to $10 million for fiscal years 2021 and 2022 to provide emergency repatriation assistance to individuals coming from Afghanistan, CNN reports.

    Driving the news: Vice President Kamala Harris presided over a session of the Senate Tuesday during which the Emergency Repatriation Assistance for Returning Americans Act passed unanimously.


    • Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) requested unanimous consent to pass the bill in the Senate.


    What they're saying: Cardin said Tuesday the legislation increases "the funds that are available to take care of Americans who have been brought home from Afghanistan."


    • "They've been uprooted, they were living in Afghanistan, so to take care of their necessities on a short-term basis. It might be housing, ... food, transportation, those sorts of issues on a short-term basis," Cardin said, per CNN.


    The big picture: Passage of the bill comes less than one day after the final American soldier departed Afghanistan.


    • The bill now heads to his desk for his approval.

    You do understand (and this is a rhetorical question) that the airport was used to evacuate civilians, mainly? Yes?

    Which begs re-posting the question:

    ...if the remaining foreigners in Afghanistan and the Afghanis who want to leave are eventually allowed safe passage to somewhere else without beheading, stoning or simply being dragged from their homes and shot, then the last chapter of this sorry saga will be a success...if not, then we'll know that Taliban words are just that: as the Qur'an declares, no promise made to an infidel has weight...

    Agreement 1.

    US–Taliban deal (2020)



    US representative Zalmay Khalilzad (left) and Taliban representative Abdul Ghani Baradar (right) sign the agreement in Doha, Qatar on February 29, 2020

    On February 29, 2020, the United States and the Taliban signed a peace agreement in Doha, Qatar,

    officially titled the Agreement for Bringing Peace to Afghanistan known also as Doha Agreement.[106]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghan...an_deal_(2020)

    Agreement 2.


    Afghanistan


    Main article: Withdrawal of United States troops from Afghanistan (2020–2021)




    Biden meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Chairman Abdullah Abdullah,

    June 2021

    Previously in February 2020, the Trump administration had made a deal with the Taliban to completely withdraw U.S. forces by May 1, 2021.[202]

    In April 2021, President Biden formally announced that American troops would instead withdraw from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021, which would signal an end to the U.S.'s longest war

    The "most affected party at the table" was the then leader of the Afghan government. Who ran away.

    The Afghan party that delivered the previosly Afghan agreed steps, The Islamic State of Afghanistan, is now "The most affected party".

    Subject to having the acceptable paperwork. What that will be, has yet to be published. By the new government or any receiving governments.

    There are usually conditions attached to obtaining such paperwork. Although that appears to being relaxed at ameristan's southern boarder.

    We shall yet to see how the NATO/5 Eye countries citizens react, to more immigrants arriving. NIMBY.

    There are also these:

    Which may or may not have relevance.

    The talitubbies will do whatever they like.

    The only thing that might control them is the threat of a Predator overhead - of the ones in charge, they don't have a death wish.

    As bad as it is, the trigger finger might not have been as itchy if the terrorists hadn't blown up the airport killing 100 or so.

    Of course no fucker says a word about them.
