As we approach the 2022 midterms, Mitch McConnell was on FOX News Sunday this morning to discuss the GOP policy on Afghanistan which is supporting imperialism and endless war.
George W. Bush’s policy was working in Afghanistan. It wasn’t an endless war. Everything was under control. Terrorism was under control in Afghanistan in spite of emergence of new terrorist groups like ISIS-K during the occupation. Staying in Afghanistan and breaking the peace deal with the Taliban WOULD NOT have plunged American troops into the middle of civil war in Afghanistan.
Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Kevin McCarthy, Dan Crenshaw, Lindsey Graham, Tom Cotton and Ben Sasse have all made the rounds on cable television to make the conservative case for an endless occupation of Afghanistan. The end of the war in Afghanistan is worse than the end of the Vietnam War. They’ve chosen to make that the defining issue of the 2022 midterms.
Note: As we have said all year, these old conservative politicians were going to find some way to blow it. They’ve finally found the issue that will sink their plans to retake Congress.
