Biden administration spent 6 months flying LGBTQ flags at embassies, hiring diversity officers & lecturing us on our sins.— Mark Dubowitz (@mdubowitz) August 15, 2021
Now, Taliban flags flying in Kabul & Afghan women & kids will be enslaved by medieval tyrants.
Virtue signaling doesn’t defeat evil. Only brave people can.

Why is this a tragedy?
This is a beautiful sight. It is what ought to happen here. Can you blame the Afghans for turning to the Taliban to get these people the f*** out of their country?
“The rapid reconquest of the capital, Kabul, by the Taliban after two decades of a staggeringly expensive, bloody effort to establish a secular government with functioning security forces in Afghanistan is, above all, unutterably tragic.
Tragic because the American dream of being the “indispensable nation” in shaping a world where the values of civil rights, women’s empowerment and religious tolerance rule proved to be just that: a dream.
This longest of American wars was code-named first Operation Enduring Freedom and then Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. Yet after $83 billion and at least 2,448 American service members’ lives lost in Afghanistan, it is difficult to see what of lasting significance has been achieved. …
The Afghanistan papers published in The Washington Post, including a confidential effort on “Lessons Learned” conducted by the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, an agency created by Congress, painted a devastating picture of corruption, incompetence, lack of motivation and other flaws among the Afghan forces the United States and its allies were trying to mold into a serious military.
One Navy official said Afghans viewed their police as “the most hated institution” in Afghanistan. Other officials described systematic looting by soldiers and officers, as well as Afghan casualties so huge — 60,000 killed since 2001, by one estimate — that the government kept them a secret. The corruption was so rampant that many Afghans began to question whether their government or the Taliban was the greater evil. …”
The dream is over in Afghanistan.
Good riddance too. Hopefully, it will further discredit the political establishment in this country and spur a domino effect and globohomo will be challenged on multiple fronts all over the world.
Note: Wouldn’t you love to see the last Chinook taking off here and flying back to New York City or Los Angeles as televisions are smashed?
