    Biden's team hit the wrong person.
    And killed children. More blood on his hands.

    Hardly wasted.

    This time last month Afghanistan had a women's football team, female scientists, rights, etc.

    Today there are four year old girls being auctioned off in Kabul market.

    Sometimes preventing bad things from happening is an achievement/success all in of itself, 20 years well spent and a job well done by our armed forces, just a shame the politicians couldn't have done a better job.

    Didn't they have female sports, education, jobs etc.. under the soviets too. I wonder what the Western news stories were back then.

    Four year old girls being auctioned?

    Utter horse ****, don't believe everything you read on the internet.

    For the last 20 years thousands of Afghans have died for some stupid liberal utopia that they never wanted or believed in.

    Who gives a **** about women's football team when half the country can barely afford to feed themselves or are vulnerable to highway robbers and gangsters.

    Faux morality makes me sick.

    Your post itself is a prime example of everything that is wrong with western liberal thinking on Afghanistan.

    And for twenty years how much **** like this has happened that has been brushed under the carpet and totally ignored?

    At least this **** will finish now. But of course what is more important is a transgender academy be setup in Kabul according to some people here..

    You really believe that Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld are liberals?

    Wasn't there a long running joke a decade or so ago about the UN writing a strongly worded letter to anyone they didn't agree with ? :D

    And in a shocking surprise to absolutely no-one the US has finally admitted what we've known for a week, the drone strike mentioned earlier did in fact kill an aid worker, two adults and 7 kids and NOT the ISIS-K suicide bomber that they'd been boasting about for 2 weeks before hand.

    Again, with ZERO evidence other than the car make/model/colour, the US decided to kill someone regardless of collateral damage and with absolutely no proof of who was in the car or their intentions and, once it became obvious that they'd screwed up, the first Instinct was to lie and smear the aid worker they'd killed instead of being open and honest, but don't worry an "internal investigation" will take place and "lessons will be learned" whilst they pay off the families of the dead :rolleyes:

    They also said no disciplinary action expected (just a shrug of the shoulders and ‘oops’).

    Anyway let’s be honest, they’ve been doing things like this for 20+ years, it’s just this time the world was watching Kabul extra closely and when they ****ed up they couldn’t maintain the lie or hand-wave it away. After the airport attack they were clearly desperate to get something else to put on the news and what better than a ‘we mean business’ revenge strike that only resulted in smearing a random family across the front of their home.

    Time to take bets on their upcoming ‘domestic war on terror’ leading to a Hellfire missile taking out a kids party in middle America off the back of bad intel.

    Conveniently far, far away. "We just killed a dozen people including children. Oops!" heck they're not even real people anyway just a bunch of images on TV. Not like real, breathing, americans with y'know, legal rights 'n' stuff.
