  1. We are divided approximately in half. All of this division and finger pointing is making all these reports like a circus. I for one do not like Trump OR Biden. Both are too far to the right or left. Both are divisive. And in my view, both embarrass us on the world stage. At least the Chinese would be afraid Trump would resist them in an invasion of Taiwan. He would have never released any aid to the Taliban.
    This started to slide downhill way back when Obama/Biden did NOTHING to support our Allies in the Crimea. When Bin Laden was assassinated and we did not start an orderly pull out of Afghanistan then. The very next morning. WE could have stretched it out over a safe period of time and still been out years earlier. I never liked Trump, but we should have been out before he was elected.

  2. The NYT published a detailed investigation into the 29th August Drone Strike that killed an innocent family of 10 including 7 children. US Military lied about it being an "imminent suicide attack".
    Sec of State Blinken was questioned by Rand Paul in the Senate about whether the victim was an ISIS-K Operative or an Aid Worker, and his reply was "I don't know, because we're reviewing it"
    Why is this not being covered by the rest of mainstream media?

  3. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  4. Blinken has blamed Biden's catastrophe in Afghanistan on Trump, the Afghan government, Americans and special visa holders, the Intel community…but he expects Biden to get credit for the evacuation. That's like an arsonist who sets a fire and expects credit for calling the fire department.

  5. Their 2 favorite excuses for not answering questions.

    1."Do to the on going investigation I can't speak about that""
    2. I can't answer that in this type of "forum"".
    This type of forum?
    That's why it's called "the hot seat", testifying before Congress where it's a crime (a felony) to lie.
    What other forum is their for this? This is it, you're expected to answer questions truthfully, not make excuses when you're the one everyone knows you already have the answers too, because that's you position and responsibility to know.😕

  6. Congratulations Joe. Thank you for ending America's senseless Bombing of 14 Muslim countries in the name of Peace.

    Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan, Palestine, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Tunisia and Yemen.

    The 20 year war cost $300M a day and 2,461 lives and 9/11 was 2,996 lives but both are only 2 days US Covid deaths.

    The drama is over and international flights have restarted to allow Americans to finally get out of Afghanistan for good.

  7. they all know afghanistan withdrawal was done badly… piss poor mgmt from thousands of miles away… should've let the military on the ground take control and always get women and children out first!

    anyone who thinks this was a good job needs mental help and how to use logic and reason in decision making.

    its nothing to do with political party, either.. lol

  8. Republicans have always got an issue where there isn't one. Democrats need to keep that in mind. As far as Afghanistan goes, we did our best. It's time to move on. 🙄🇺🇸💕💕💕💕💕🇺🇸

  9. Who was the person who set off the drone strike? Shouldn't they question that person? I see fingers pointed to Biden and a couple of others but they didnt set off the drone. Also , why didn't Trump start pulling civilians first? He had a much better time frame then Biden did. Trump had control of SIV programs and other programs like that. That Trump chose to slow the process to almost a full stop. How was anyone going to get civilian afganistans out any time soon without the help of those programs? Those programs are flawed.
