We should have never been in Afghanistan, but we were.
People always say, "Why did you go there if you knew it was wrong?"
Answer: "To protect my brothers and sisters next to me, and the innocent people being murdered, abused, stoned to death, raped, tortured."
We went because we had to, and that's something you won't understand unless you've served. Biden is weak. The Taliban and ISIS knocked off their nonsense, because Trump was strong, and they knew he would rain down all hell upon them if they acted up; so they didn't. The whole world knows we have weak, non-existent leadership, so they no longer fear consequences. Yes; Trump was removing all the troops, but still they did not advance, because they knew better. If Trump was still our POTUS, this would NOT have happened.
You just don't know the torture of seeing the evils over there. You don't want to know it, EVER. You have to understand that most of these people had no idea about 9/11, or why we were even there, and they hated us to begin with, but then they loved us. They absolutely cheered for us, waving American Flags, hugging us, feeding us, and gifting things to us. They appreciated the freedom. Women could drive, go to school, work, and be free. Children could go to school without being abducted, stolen, raped, and married at 12yrs of age.
ALL OF THAT IS GONE! These people who 99% are good, kind people, have lost 20 years of freedom.
For those of us who have been there, this tears our hearts out. We fought, many injured, and died for the freedom and humanity of these people, only to have it all destroyed.
This CUTS DEEPLY, and we are going to see Veteran mental health emergencies and suicides due to this. The Afghan people for the most part were humble, peaceful, farmers. This is terrible!
