    for sure. Too bad it didn’t happen under the Trump administration. We would’ve been able to enjoy another one of his announcements.

    Briefing reporters on Monday ahead of Biden's remarks, a senior administration official said that "we showed that without American forces on the ground in Afghanistan and in harm's way, we remain able to identify and locate even the world's most wanted terrorists and then take action to remove him from the battlefield." It was a subtle rebuke of the sharp criticism the administration faced last year in leaving Afghanistan in the face of a resurgent Taliban.


    Too late Joseph. Nice try but.
    A true diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a manner that you will be asking for directions.

    And Bush, Obama, Trump? Better late than never.

    Bit strange how you somehow view this as a loss for Biden.

    We'll see? What will we see? Do you think I was talking about poll rates? I doubt there are many Americans who think Joe did a bad thing here, regardless of how they vote.

    Do you think it was a bad thing Russell? Wouldn't surprise me.

    I don't think it was a bad thing, not at all.

    I don't spend much time anymore wondering who is the winner and who is the loser. Juvenile stuff really. Don't you think?

    Biden seems still to be into " I'll take you behind the woodshed" approach. Unfortunate in an eighty year old but what do you think? One look and one listen and it is immediately apparent Joe ain't taking anyone behind the shed.

    Be willing to bet he is in as good or better shape than you Russell, mentally and physically.

    Brings back tearful memories of how poor Hillary had to endure watching the killing of OBL.

    I'm one of those people who doesn't think that Putin is 100 percent responsibe for the conflict. There is more than enough blame to go around.

    And besides, that's a very very low bar.

    Good to see the US isn't 'cowardly', like those 'cowardly' suicide bombers.

    OI! It takes strength and nerves of steel to fly a drone from an air-con office in Nevada. The joystick callouses alone . . .

    You're confusing him with the Pope.
