RECKLESS ABANDONMENT

America’s longest war is over. The United States of America, the most powerful nation on the planet, possessed of the most fearsome military might of all the nations, surrendered to a rag tag bunch of tribal terrorists. And the impetus for this shameful debacle can be summed up in just three words, “Orange Man Bad.”

The war is over. After twenty years of conflict Afghanistan, the graveyard of empires, claims another victim. The difference this time is that the latest to fall did so voluntarily. The Taliban did not win the victory, it was awarded to them. The terrorist organization, now masquerading as a government, could not have finished in a better position had they negotiated to buy the country from Hunter Biden.

We not only ceded the land, we also equipped their forces with 85 billion dollars worth of some of the most sophisticated fighting gear known to man. And in the spirit of good sportsmanship we neutralized our ability to control the night by providing them with night vision equipment to enable them to see us coming should we ever have to attack them by night.

The Taliban now has an air force larger than that of some small countries and lack only the ability to operate it. That minor inconvenience will soon be off-set by some of their friendly neighbor countries insuring that our investment in giving them air superiority will not be in vain.

America is in disgrace and our fall is being widely cheered both at home and abroad. There are many among our so-called elite who, having used the American way of life to amass fortunes now wish to deny that opportunity to others. To them being in the club is an exclusive right and membership should be limited to only a select few. American Socialism is their way of barring the path to financial success, open borders the key to an ever growing subservient lower class.

And the military, that once highly respected group of finely honed warriors, that august assemblage of brave young men and women who have dedicated themselves to the protection and safety of their fellow citizens, what of them? They have been sold down the river, every one. The current leadership of our armed forces, both the civilians and those four star politicians in the Pentagon, have traded readiness for “Wokism.”

Critical Race Theory and Gender Politics have no place in the United States Armed Forces. No, President Biden, we need not concern ourselves with maternity flight suits for fighter jet pilots. The military has but one task, to protect and defend the citizens of this once great nation. All the rest of that social engineering garbage should be left to the limp wrist set in the halls of liberal academia.

Giving aid and comfort to the enemy has a name and we need to start using it. It’s called “Treason.”

A final thought, just a very few months ago America was riding a crest. We had the lowest unemployment rate, across all demographics, in our history. For the first time ever we had achieved energy independence and cut oil’s umbilical cord to the Middle East. We had secure borders and controlled immigration. Despite constant bickering among the Professional Politicos and an obsessive hatred for the man in charge resulting in obstruction rather than cooperation, America was on the move in a positive direction and we were respected by our allies.

Fast forward to the present, a cognitively impaired President and no one in the line of succession prepared or even capable of stepping in to take his place. Inflation is out of control and because spending is also out of control more money will be printed causing inflation to continue to grow. The list of problems facing America is far too long to include here but they are sufficient to affect every man, woman and child in this country and will extend far beyond our borders.

The American Socialists are cheering this as progress while many others of us lament the loss of our beloved country. Please will someone step up and show us the way back through the looking glass to a world ruled by sanity and common sense?
