Biden Begs Taliban: Let Us Stay Six More Months

The Biden Administration seems intent on breaking the agreement signed under the Trump Administration for US troops to finally leave Afghanistan, the longest and perhaps most pointless war in US history. Rather than follow through with the withdrawal, the White House is attempting to negotiate with the Taliban for six more months. How many more Americans (and Afghanis) will have to die for this failed policy? Also today, Biden ratchets up war tensions in Ukraine, shipping more than 300 tons of new weapons. War drums getting louder. On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

  1. Biden Begs Taliban: Let Us Stay Six More Months
    Beggars can be choosers. Biden is a beggar that chose to extend the war in Afghanistan. He says he will extend the war by six months. After that, he will extend it further. The war will go on as long as he is president and will likely continue under future presidents.

    1. I bet the US leaves in the next 5 years. The Taliban will make things too unpleasant. They control a huge part of the country as is.

      1. The Taliban will make things worse for the Afghan People but if they stay out of other nations’ affairs and other nations stay out of their affairs, there will be no tension between Afghanistan and other nations.
        The Taliban have been detrimental to Afghanistan for moving the country backward and not forward. They repressed women even more than Saudi Arabia and banned education and employment for them. That affected education for boys as well as girls because most of the teachers were women before the Taliban came to power.

        1. The Taliban did ban opium and seemed to be a force in stopping the “Greek” pederasty of… some others in the Afghanistan, which has returned with the US. I’m not a fan of the Taliban due to its destruction of Afghan heritage, but there are positives.

          I don’t know what “forward” and “backward” mean as you use them. I guess that’s Europe’s Enlightenment religion, respectfully. In truth, there are no directions, only religions.

          The Taliban is influenced by the Saudis and by Pakistan. I believe it is the Saudis most responsible for spreading radical ideas throughout the world. And who empowers the Saudis? The US.

          The US could probably become fully independent of the Middle East, leaving India, China, and others to decide whether to continue purchasing. The US can trade with Venezuela and Canada, likely others in the Americas. And the US can develop solar, wind, and nuclear energy. I don’t know how long the US will have shale oil and gas.

  2. It is revealing that the US never offers a practical justification for military interventions: a clear argument that that is the only way to achieve specific goals in a particular situation, with clear comparisons of alternatives and cost/benefit analysis, with intensive monitoring and reporting of progress towards those goals.

    Obama demanded that in 2008 when the NSC demanded a “surge” in Afghanistan (see Woodward’s The War Within), but the NSC refused to comply; VP Hillary just cheered on the boys with the medals, Obama capitulated, SecState Biden allegedly insisted upon a rational basis, and was simply excluded from NSC daily briefings, The bombing and killing went ahead with no rational grounds at all.

    So Biden has been recruited with election funding bribes. Afghanistan borders Iran, which his Israeli sponsors want to threaten and weaken.

    If the US had good intentions in other countries, it would have
    1. a long history of violence prevention programs and efforts; instead it defunds the UN and threatens to militarily attack the ICJ if it prosecutes US war crimes; and

    2. a long history of other benevolent aid to distressed nations; instead it gives about one hamburger a year to the world’s poorest, most of that as military aid to dictators.

    The US government has no good intentions in the world, it is a band of crooks paid by the rich to steal, and to suppress popular governments. We do not have a democracy, and will not see justice until the rich are deposed.

    1. People hoping to get rich from government spending are also a problem. The US is too broke to send aid. It’d be better to just pass an Amendment banning the government from spending on, interfering in, or attacking foreign countries. It cant be wielded for good.

      Domestic corruption could then be looked at.
