    Yup. Lotsa BS from the Biden administration. Note that no heads will roll for the debacle in the execution of the withdrawal.

    Listen to EEO Austin.

  2. Pat Lang says:

    I listened to Milley list the infantry bns. now at the airport; 1 fm the 10th Mtn Div., 1 fm the Minnesota NG, 2 fm USMC, 3 fm the 82nd Airborne Div. Well pilgrims, these are all light infantry. There is not a tank or AFV in the whole lash up. There are no heavy weapons of any kind. There are clerks and jerks in addition to the infantry. This airfield has one runway. It is surrounded by mid-rise buildings and is in a depression. Well, duh! Reinforce with heavy gear.

    Reoccupy Bagram airfield as a backup.

    • John+Merryman says:

      More like cya. It’s all they know.
      It’s going to be an interesting next few weeks.

    • TTG says:

      Although there are no tanks, those battalions are equipped with some MRAP vehicles. I’ve see recent photos of them at the airport. Could be in the weapons companies. They also have plenty of Javelin ATGM and some TOW launchers as well along with their organic mortars. The Taliban probably have ATGMs. I wouldn’t want to be in any tank or AFV around that airport.

      Leaving Bagram in the dark of the night was a monumental screw up. It was certainly more easily defended than the Kabul Airport. I would reoccupy it as well.

      • Pat Lang says:

        No. What you want is to be able to do is slaughter infantry in the assault. Bradleys would be an alternative.

    • Razumov says:

      Do the troops have any defense if the Taliban start dropping mortars on them?

      • Pat Lang says:


        Not that I know of.

      • Mark Logan says:

        I imagine the Taliban has but to lob a few in to shut down air ops, and are aware they can. For the immediate future we may be limited to crossing fingers and kissing asses.

        • Pat Lang says:

          Mark Logan

          Is that what the British, French and Australians are doing?

          • Mark Logan says:

            Was speaking about airport security there, but thanks for the tip. I hadn’t heard they were getting around inside Kabul and the Talibs were letting them alone. Interesting. Apparently the Talibs are, for the moment, willing if not happy to let us haul all foreigners out.

            We should be doing the same. If unwilling to test the Talibs’ tolerance with American personnel, we should at the very least be asking those nations to have their troops escort our people out too.

          • Pat Lang says:

            Mark Logan

            “we should at the very least be asking those nations to have their troops escort our people out too.” Have you no shame?

          • Mark Logan says:

            If the talibs won’t let our people do it, I see none in asking the Brits, French and Aussies to do us a favor there.

          • Pat Lang says:

            You do not understand soldiers. The US military, especially the Army will be completely demoralized by this. The marines will shelter emotionally behind the issue of the 82nd CG having been put in charge but, they too, know this id bullshit

          • TTG says:

            I saw one photo of Spanish special ops out and about in Kabul gathering and bringing people to the airport. There was a big, burly Spanish captain on my student detachment at Bragg. He had enough bravado and pride for at least 10 ordinary soldiers. As an added touch of class, he always had his little expresso maker in the field. I could definitely see someone like him plucking Afghans from under the noses of a gaggle of Talib.

            I would be completely surprised, and deeply ashamed, if we didn’t have similar types picking up people in Kabul. We’re just not hearing about them.

          • Mark Logan says:


            I quite agree, it is most shameful to not do what the Brits et al are doing. I wasn’t advocating. Some morale could be salvaged by field officers who demonstrate a willingness and ability to adapt, improvise, and overcome high-brass cowardice and/or stupidity though.

  3. Sam says:

    Julian Assange speaking in 2011: “The goal is to use Afghanistan to wash money out of the tax bases of the US and Europe through Afghanistan and back into the hands of a transnational security elite. The goal is an endless war, not a successful war” #Afghanistan

    Now you know why he’s in solitary confinement for how many years. But….Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. That’s what most Americans are fixated on. The fascists keep doing more & more.

  4. Deap says:

    If 80% of the illegal opium trade already comes from Afghanistan, what larger per cent will they now gain that the gloves are off. How many new customers, how many loss leader opium sales will they offer to get vast numbers of new customers hooked on their primary cash export product?

    Is this what Sucki meant when she claimed the Taliban would do right because they want to “gain a legitimate place in the global community”?

    ………….”We’ve stood by on the sidelines and, unfortunately, allowed the Taliban to become probably the largest funded non-designated terrorist organization on the globe,” said a U.S. official with knowledge of Afghanistan’s drug trade.

    “The U.S. and international partners have continued to pull out and not addressed poppy cultivation,” the official said on condition of anonymity. “What you’re going to find is that it has exploded.”……………

    • Mark Gaughan says:

      Didn’t the Taliban get rid of opium by 2001?

      • JerseyJeffersonian says:


        Yes, that was reputedly the case. But that was in 2001. Twenty years later, after the open-ended NATO occupation and the continual conflict this brought in Afghanistan, they appear to have changed policy, probably for two reasons: 1) opium offered a great source of funding for the opposition to the occupation, while also bringing those who had favored opium production onside instead of having them opposing the Taliban; 2) it was a form of asymmetrical warfare against the West, reaching out and hurting the West in their homelands.

        I should not be surprised if deals were struck with the Mexican cartels for them to purchase Afghan opium for further refinement into heroin, grown and initially processed in Afghanistan, which relieved the cartels of the problem of cultivating opium poppies in Mexico with the DEA and Mexican authorities breathing down their neck. The cartels already have a similar deal going with the Chinese tongs to buy their fetanyl for them to distribute in the US and Canada, eliminating vulnerablities from having fetanyl production labs in Mexico. The cartels still do have superlabs producing methamphetamines in Mexico, but even here they appear to be buying predecessor chemicals from Chinese sources.

        Huge drug seizure at the chaotic southern border:

        Fortunately, our guys caught this one, likely an example of international organized crime, as outlined above.

        • Deap says:

          Our expensive and insatiable appetite for drugs in the US, going to bed with the worst possible players, to keep the supply lines flowing, is a hard one to explain.

          America is great, and it is great to be free but free to blow your brains out on drugs and become the increasing armies of urban detritus now tarnishing everything we do so well?

          California’ refusal to do anything more than bandaids about this says something darker too – someone is making a lot of money off growing human misery. Larry Elder takes this issue on up front – take state or federal land and rebuild state addiction institutions -get a job, get clean or get into a lock down institution. Clear as can be – no other choices any longer.

  5. Deap says:

    As Biden Administration insiders fall into a free for all food fight, as being reported in the arguably “biased” media, could this latest rumor actually be solid – Kamala is polling cabinet members for 25th Amendment action?

    Seems I recall the same story was put out about Trump – cabinet members ready to go 25th on him, but they had to get past VP Pence first. So it was a no go. But this time VP Harris is leading the charge.

    Fun facts to take your mind off the unfolding Afghan sh*t show that somehow took the Jan 6 investigation off the front pages:

    Or is this a reminder to sober us up fast, once the AZ Audit report makes its preliminary findings public — this week — You really don’t want to remove or cause Biden to resign, now do you? Look who is waiting to take over.

    Kackling QueMala would be heir apparent, and now waiting in the wings. Is this an attempt to frame and sacrifice her now as traitor in chief, when she is flying across the Pacific Ocean and out of press conference response territory.


    • jonst says:

      Harris couldn’t organize tupperware party, never mind a soft coup. But the Dems are gonna soon enough start paying for the mistake of naming her VP.

  6. longarch says:

    It is questionable to what degree President Trump had any kind of plan for withdrawal from Afghanistan. Some cynics have suggested that Trump initially tried and failed to withdraw, then arranged matters so that the inevitable retreat would be timed to maximize bad publicity for Biden.

    Some Trump fans are still arguing that Trump is secretly in control of everything good and secretly leading the fight against everything bad — a faith-based position that is difficult to disprove with mere facts. An anonymous Trump supporter (who argues that Trump is secretly still five moves ahead of everyone in 4-D chess) wrote:

    The Taliban of yesteryear had not yet encountered Donald J. Trump.

    Remember when he forced Pakistan to release a Taliban leader they had in prison? About 3 years ago? Then Trump started the ‘negotiation talks’ with Taliban regarding his Afghan withdrawal?

    Fast forward to today. The Taliban leader Trump had released from Pakistani prison 3 years ago is the one who was declared the new President of Afghanistan yesterday.

    A journalist wrote:

    Abdul Ghani Baradar, the Taliban leader freed from a Pakistani jail on the request of the US less than three years ago, has emerged as an undisputed victor of the 20-year war.

    While Haibatullah Akhundzada is the Taliban’s overall leader, Baradar is its political chief and its most public face. He was said to be on his way from his office in Doha to Kabul on Sunday evening. In a televised statement on the fall of Kabul, he said the Taliban’s real test was only just beginning and that they had to serve the nation.

    During the Taliban’s 20-year exile, Baradar had the reputation of being a potent military leader and a subtle political operator. Western diplomats came to view him as on the wing of the Quetta Shura – the Taliban’s regrouped leadership in exile – that was most resistant to ISI control, and most amenable to political contacts with Kabul.

    The Obama administration, however, was more fearful of his military expertise than it was hopeful about his supposedly moderate leanings. The CIA tracked him down to Karachi in 2010 and in February of that year persuaded ISI to arrest him.

    “The capture of Baradar was predominantly instigated because of his role in the war rather than because of the likelihood that he was going to suddenly make peace,” a former official said. “The fact is, the Pakistanis held on to him all those years in large part because the United States asked them to.”
    Qatar talks

    In 2018, however, Washington’s attitude changed and Donald Trump’s Afghan envoy, Zalmay Khalilzad, asked the Pakistanis to release Baradar so he could lead negotiations in Qatar, based on the belief that he would settle for a power-sharing arrangement. “I had never seen any real substantiation of that point, but it just took on a kind of mythic idea,” the former official said.

    Baradar signed the Doha agreement with the US in February 2020, in what the Trump administration hailed as a breakthrough towards peace but which now appears a mere staging post towards total Taliban victory.

    The US and Taliban agreement not to fight each other was supposed to be followed by power-sharing talks between the Taliban and the Kabul government of Ashraf Ghani. Those talks stumbled along with little progress, and it is clear now that Baradar and the Taliban were playing for time, waiting for the Americans to leave and preparing a final offensive. Baradar’s life has taught him patience and confidence in ultimate victory. – Guardian

    Meanwhile, General Flynn is advising people to stop waiting for external leadership and to get involved in local communities. I don’t know quite how to interpret that in the context of non-American polities. Perhaps it is time for me to start up a local anti-Communist group.

  7. John Minnerath says:

    It just boggles my mind, even though the whole thing is a total circle jerk, That Bagram was left abandoned with nearly everything left behind.
    I did read they took the keys, hope someone remembered to turn off the lights.

    Bit late to play catchup

    Wonder if the debacle was pre planned to make sure that the next occupation – Iran? lasts longer – 30 yrs?

  10. AK says:

    What happens when the first American hostage execution is broadcast worldwide on the internet? At this point, I believe this is now a foregone conclusion. If someone has a scenario in which this is not an inevitability, I’d love to hear it.

    What is the appropriate administration response, and what will be the likely response? I cannot fathom how these people would handle such a situation, given that they are literally running away from responsibility for any of this disaster as it currently stands.

  11. Eric Newhill says:

    We’ve probably beaten the covid topic to death here as of late. However, I suggest the video linked to below. It is a very good synopsis of the situation and the science. IMO, worth the listen.

    • Deap says:

      Good video, thanks for keeping this topic open since more and more aggressive demands for 100% vaccine mandates threaten every last one of us. Synopsis: covid moves from pandemic to endemic as more data is tracked: Eg. Norway, Sweden and Iowa.

      New paradigm: Living with covid as a seasonal flu; no longer living in fear of it and closing down society over a single new case. Hello NZ?

      Will this finally be the answer for Democrats to save face and get out from under this covid porn fear monster they created for their own benefit., but now can no longer put back in the bottle. Who knew how many in the US actually love living with high levels of covid porn fear?

      Of note, Norway’s main cod liver oil brand (Moellers) conducted a 6 month study with the Univ of Oslo – 7000 person – placebo controlled – to learn more “scientifically” about benefits or not from the country’s daily cod liver oil use – dosing high levels of Vitamin D and E. Study included monitoring any covid protection offered by cod liver oil.

      So far I find zero follow-up, even though the study must have been concluded by now. Will they learn whether this daily habit, almost a religious ritual in Norway, is good, bad or indifferent. Looking forward to learning more.

      However, would the company sponsoring this study (Moellers) want to publish negative results and wipe out their entire built up mythological value?

      Would Univ of Norway want their name tainted if they refused to publish the outcomes? The media silence is surprising considering how much publicity the study garnered when its started and they were seeking 7000 volunteers.

      Just something to check in on from time to time, since Vit D continues to be pushed as almost a magical covid elixir, from Fauci on down. But is it really? Not yet determined.

    • Joe100 says:

      Eric –

      Great video – the best information I have seen and very well communicated.

      I am seeing more masks come back here in mid-Coast Maine over the past couple of weeks (pretty lefty area) and I have seen no one wearing an M-95 mask..

      Thanks for this link!

  13. Sam says:

    Petty Tyrants.

    Some people are getting it. Many don’t and prefer the fascist “nanny” state as they’re so consumed with fear.

    Some people are also seeing not only the utter incompetence but also the fascist Swamp Racket. The Col. Lang’s, Steve Sailer’s and Julian Assange’s were right back in 2001 about the Swamp Racket masquerading as “nation-building” in Afghanistan. And the soon to follow Iraq debacle. Many of those were ridiculed and marginalized because they didn’t tow the line of the prevailing groupthink. Even today those that ran the racket are those providing the “analysis” on Big Media. Some like Assange have been put away in solitary confinement for exposing the lies.

    If a revolt against the fascists arrive the bloodbath will be worse than the WBS and WW I.

    • Deap says:

      Bonus point question – Does the current fear of covid now replace our former “Fear of God?

      • JerseyJeffersonian says:

        Fear of the Judgment of God was the more correct formulation. This formed the basis of the genre of Medieval poetry with the line, “Timor mortis conturbat me”, roughly translated, Fear of death is troubling me, with that fear being that of dying in a state of sinfulness.

        Nowadays, of course, for so many there is no belief in or personal experience of God, so the fear among the godless is merely of death itself.

    Update from the Kabul Airport:

    The latest info that I was able to find is that there are major disagreements/problems between the UK 2 Para CO & the US 82nd Abn CO:

    EXCLUSIVE #kabulairport #Afghanistan

    Friction at airport between US & UK forces Commanders.

    US forces won’t leave airport due to Taliban deal.

    2 Para still running patrols into Kabul to collect people from safe houses.

    US unhappy with Paras saying it puts their deal at risk.

    As many of you are aware the Usurper Regime SECDEF stated that we don’t have the ability to go out & find Americans trapped behind Taliban lines.

    Well apparently the Brits & French do:

    Meanwhile, 2 Para are running constant patrols into Kabul to collect British, Irish and Afghan Nationals due for evacuation.

    Any other nationality also picked up if at location. Taliban are aware of patrols and taking no action.

    UK forces very much running own operation. #OSINT

    Over the past 48 hours, the elite tactical unit of the French Police, RAID, have made multiple trips into Kabul to rescue people sheltering in the French Embassy.

    So far, they have taken 216 French and Foreign nationals to the secure area of Kabul Airport, #Afghanistan.

    Things are so bad between US and UK forces at Kabul Airport, #Afghanistan, 2 Para have been tasked to observe US forces in case they leave at short notice.

    2 Para OC had a screaming match with 82nd Airbourne CO.

    Paras VERY unhappy at treatment of Afghans by US forces.

    Meanwhile there’s this nugget:

    US Rank & File Soldiers at Kabul Airport, #Afghanistan are incandescent at the position taken by US Central Command regarding evacuations.

    They are extremely frustrated they can’t join 2 Para & the small army of military contractors they’ve assembled to rescue people in Kabul.

  16. Suresh Syed says:

    Any comment on the reported disagreement between 2nd Para and the 82nd Airborne w/ the Brits going out to pick up evacuees and the Americans afraid that this will disrupt their agreements?

  17. John+Merryman says:

    As someone who likes to sit back and watch the larger dynamics at work, when you are talking millions and billions of people, it’s not politics, or culture, it’s biology and physics.
    The two elemental forces in nature are synchronization and harmonization. The first centripetal and the second centrifugal. The effect is nodes and networks, organisms and ecosystems.
    It is just that human culture tends to coalesce toward synchronization, aka, globalization. Even the Holy Roman Empire was an early form of globalization.
    Yet when they start to break down in the middle, aka rot and corruption, the centrifugal forces take over again.

  18. Bobo says:

    Good old Joe has found another fight to lose. Yup, he is screaming at the republican governors threatening federal civil rights suits cause they will not mandate masks to the little kids but they do believe masks are proper but that decision rests with the parents. Plus his and Tony F’s nose’s are out of joint cause them governors are rushing out Monoclonal Antibody Infusion sites. The benefit is less hospitalizations. Why can’t our federal government think of these things.
    Seems the Brits and Yanks are upset with each other over at HKIA as the Brits and others are sending out patrols to pick up nationals and others and take them to their planes. Old Joe won’t let the Yanks do this nor has Marvelous Millie told Joe it’s necessary. How many Taliban do we think are in Kabul.
    Joe’s mess is getting bigger.

  19. Deap says:

    Add this video proof of women stealing mail in ballots in California to the file titled “Baseless Election Fraud Complaints”:

    The upcoming Calif recall election – mandated 100% mail in plus you can print your own ballots at home is going to be one more Democrat mismanaged Kabul Airport evacuation scene – stay tuned.

    Sept 14. Two issues: Recall – vote yes or no. Next: Chose replacement if the first vote totals pass the recall. – Democrats are ganging up to support some weird dude; while polls favor GOP Larry Elder.

    Newsom wins if the recall fails. Someone else among the 40-60 other names wins if the recall passes. Dominion and SEIU still control most county election offices.

  20. Deap says:

    The ways the upcoming California Democrat-run Recall election can cheat just reached a new mind-boggling new heights:

    Ballot and ballot envelope were intentionally designed to reveal which ballots voted for the recall ……before the ballot is even opened.

    This allows Democrat run election departments to do whatever they want with those ballots, long before they even hit the Dominion voting systems or even get adjudicated.

    So glad this was discovered early – but what are they going to do about this material error ….. to prevent even a hint of election fraud?

  21. Leith says:

    Joe Galloway just passed away. It is four years after General Moore passed, who had been his co-author of the best seller about the Battle of Ia Drang – or the portion of that battle at LZ-Xray.

    Cronkite and Morley Safer did a special on the battle soon after it happened. If you can stomach Safer’s over-the-top narration, parts of it are worth watching. At least for a look at the topo terrain model at minute 2:15 to see the steep sided valley where the battle was fought. Plus there is a lot of background information on the leadup to the battle.

    This human catastrophe after a Moderna shot place in stark relief the question: did stuff in Moderna’s drug make it impossible for this man’s body to create essential B Cells?

    The Vapid bull shit artists in charge don’t seem to care.

    Pushing immunity — via covid shots, and at expense of immunity from having already gotten the disease, i.e. and now: vax mandates irrespective of whether one has natural immunity] — another symptom of these vapid bull shit artists’ recklessness, incompetence, corruption, moral turpitude, and worse — of which Afghanistan “withdrawal-freak-show” being run by Biden and Blinken and Milley and Austin,, as grotesque an example one can find.

    Below, from essay titled: “B cell memory: understanding COVID-19” by Isaak Quast and David Tarlinton

    [[ Overall, however, the prospects of widespread immunity to SARS-CoV-2, either by infection or by vaccination, appear to be very strong, with durability being the remaining unknown that can only be answered with time.]]


    [[Immunological memory is a mechanism to protect us against reinfection. Antibodies produced by B cells are integral to this defense strategy and underlie virtually all vaccine success. ]]


    If a covid mRNA shot blocks a body’s ability to create B cells, WTF is going on?

    Quast and Tarlington claim to be explaining “how B cell memory is generated by infection and vaccination, what influences its efficacy and its persistence, and how characterizing these parameters in the immune response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) will help achieve protective immunity through vaccination.”

    What happens, as is happening now, when the covid shot Vaccine Effectiveness [VE] appears trending towards: VE = ZERO?

    In the case of the 47 year old totally disabled man, after a Moderna. . . VE=ZERO + shot destroys ability to create B cells?

  23. Barbara Ann says:

    “Modern notions of Greek and Roman exceptionalism and exemplarity have played a central role in modern Western colonial discourses. The idealisation of Greece and Rome, and the embedding of that idealisation in education, has featured significantly in the development of modern Western racism.”

    Who wrote this you may ask? None other than the UK’s Cambridge University Classics faculty. Top academic institutions are now actively tearing up the roots of Western civilization. How will history* describe this period I wonder, perhaps “The Age of Benightenment”.

    *Presuming a study of the past is still permitted in our bright new future
