    Check out the new docuseries, “Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror” on Netflix. It is an expansive and detailed historical study about HOW & WHY we got to 9/11, with an almost complete history of WHEN & WHY Afghanistan became a focal point for the American government and the American people. This 5 episode series explains so much and in such detail, afterwards you’ll know EXACTLY WHY we left Afghanistan, and WHY we should have left much sooner than August of 2021! It’s ALL there. And it’s ALL the TRUTH! The main idea I got out of it is this: Never go to war without a clear exit strategy that leaves the invaded country better than you found it. NOT doing so will be catastrophic!

    Use the drones to destroy the military equipment we left there! Give them word “ we are coming for our equipment, anyone nearby may be injured!”

    Little consolation however for the 13 and all those American's that fell before them. Many were left behind and the poorly strategized withdrawal, despite having months for preparation, is a shining example of this illegit administrations capabilities.

    That is Joe Biden's wisdom. He works carefully and with precision! He has done an outstanding job during this trumpty dumpty made crisis. He never complains about cleaning up that idiots mess either. Love Joe!

    A needed response. Glad it came as soon as it did. I would like to see a few more of the leaders of this group brought to swift terminal justice. I think it sends a much needed message, and hopefully is at least a minor consolation to the troops, those families who have lost loved ones serving our country and the Afghans who lost mothers, fathers, siblings, children and friends in a cowardly terrorist attack. There has to be a price to pay.

    The U.S. military confirmed that it carried out a drone strike on Sunday, successfully taking out what appeared to be an explosives-packed vehicle heading toward Kabul's international airport. "U.S. military forces conducted a self-defense unmanned over-the-horizon airstrike today on a vehicle in Kabul, eliminating an imminent ISIS-K threat to Hamad Karzai International airport," Urban said. "We are confident we successfully hit the target. Significant secondary explosions from the vehicle indicated the presence of a substantial amount of explosive material," the military spokesperson explained. Outstanding! We will need to be extra vigilant for the next couple of days to insure we get out of there safely. Way to go Drones & operators!

    “Censorship is the tool of those who have the need to hide actualities from themselves and from others. Their fear is only their inability to face what is real, and I can't vent any anger against them. I only feel this appalling sadness. Somewhere, in their upbringing, they were shielded against the total facts of our existence. They were only taught to look one way when many ways exist.” Bukowski

    My husband currently works with drones. I’m proud of the work his team does! They are highly efficient & effective. The best part is, drones can be deployed without losing any US troops in their mission! ISIS-K needs to be stopped, or we will be dealing with them for years to come. They are more organized & tech-savvy than the Taliban & their recruitment efforts are nothing to dismiss.

    I support it but we’ve been doing it for 20 years & more terrorist keep coming. It’s never ending & they will never stop. We get out & they will be over here or our allies paying us all back. We either win a war or we don’t & we didnt win this one or the middle east would now be a parking lot!!!!! We knew how to win in WWII & we definitely finished it with Japan! Don’t stick your nose in & not finish the damn job!!!

    If a drone missile can take out a moving car with explosives on a kabul street why can’t we damage some of the critical equipment especially helicopters that have been captured by the talibs? Likewise parked mwraps & humvees at night? You just need to damage them enough to be inoperable! Im sure friendly forces on the ground can also locate arms & munition depots? Call it ‘over the horizon’ clean up!

    If these brain-dead remnants of the 17th century didn't try to impose their stupidity on others no one would care. Reminds me of the Republican Party.

    To the foolishly bloodthirsty and those following the Right Wingnut Party Line: The goal is getting "our" people — civilian and military — out safely, not to engage in protracted gunfire and all that entails. IMO, the drone strike was a very deliberate and measured response; as much a reminder of the might of the USA as it was a precision, targeted strike from on high. It reminds both the Taliban & ISIS-K that the USA is a relatively gentle giant, but they needed a little taste of what can be done via high tech. Meanwhile, more importantly, we hear that the US has managed to tie up Billions of the Taliban's reserve funds. If that is true & if their contingency funds are limited, then that is the kind of “retaliation” the Taliban leadership should find most troubling.

    Probably some car loaded with refugees. Biden trying to make a strong statement but he is too weak and senile. The Taliban are just laughing at him and his administration.

    It is time for us to leave this country! I fully expected this to be a mess no mater what president was in power! I think the military and Biden are doing their best given who they have to deal with in Afghanistan! Lindsey was on TV this morning trying to scare Americans to take the focus of the Republicans! Just remember this, the Republicans blocked measures to prevent death from Covid19! They gave huge tax breaks to the Rich! They pass laws to prevent people from voting! They tried to overturn the government on Jan 6th! Republicans talk about freedom, but they block local elected governments from dealing with Covid19! For the conservatives that read this, everything above you know in your heart is true !

    By the way, we found out that two children and four people are killed who were sitting in a car. The locals ran up to the car in fire and tried to put it off with buckets of water and sand. ...
