    UPDATE:-
    More Evacuees have flown out of Kabul Airport.........

    7th Qatari evacuation flight takes off from Kabul
    Another Qatari evacuation flight took off from Kabul and has landed in Doha, according to Qatari officials, the seventh and largest evacuation flight to Qatar since U.S. forces withdrew from Afghanistan.
    "The flight carried 301 passengers, constituting the largest Qatari passenger evacuation flight since 31 August. Passengers onboard included Afghan citizens, Afghan MPs, UN affiliates, journalists as well as citizens from countries including the United States, Netherlands, Australia, France and Japan," said a senior Qatari government official in a statement.
    The passengers who arrived on Monday will be transported to a compound facility already hosting Afghan civilians and other evacuees before departing to their final destinations.
    "The State of Qatar will continue to work with international partners on efforts that ensure freedom of movement in Afghanistan, including through serving as an active mediator between various parties. We remain focused on providing humanitarian aid to the country and are dedicated to promoting a stable and peaceful Afghanistan moving forward," the statement said.

    2024 will indeed be interesting. It is inconceivable that old Joe will even be coherent enough by then to say "vote for me." Maybe they can use Deep Fakes. Or Max Bidenroom?

    And people are starting to take note of the fact that everything Kamala is given to do she also flubs -- that is if she even makes any attempt at all to do it.

    I'm surprised that none of the Democrats have the political wherewithal to start staking out some political ground on their own now. I don't mean distancing themselves from Biden. That will come after 2022 if what is brewing is even half as bad as it looks.

    But it looks that the midterms is what everyone is waiting for. So everyone will "emerge" in a pack. And that's what I mean I'm surprised nobody has realized getting your name out there and being talked about before everyone else tries to do the same would be the smart course.

    They're making Afghanistan a large part of their campaign, so this isn't going away.

    SO you say, but you didn't do anything other than hand-wave it away here. What exactly didn't work? Why didn't it work? What was the axis of comparison?

    As of yet what we're getting from the White House is that those who were abandoned didn't really want to leave.

    At least families such as Aman Khalili's are getting clear.
    The USA has been negotiating or talking with the Taliban, trying to arrange safe transport out for any remaining US citizens and Westerners who want to leave, and for those who assisted Western forces before the end.

    I'm interested to see or hear how those talks went and if there was any success.

    You can argue about all sorts of initial faults, but that doesn't excuse someone coming up with a horrible plan to get out of it. That's like saying, "I never should've been in an arranged marriage Ethel to begin with, so it's my parents fault when I killed her to end the marriage"

    Yeah, when Biden royally screwed things up, others rushed in to try to salvage what they could of the situation, including trying to save lives.



    Actually, yes, he did.



    And I was against that then, and still am.

    Though, Biden did not "make a mess of Afghanistan" originally, he made a ROYAL mess of the exit, and left American citizens, Afghani loyalists, and many others behind to pay the price.
    Biden should be in a mental hospital, not the commander of our military. He is a screw-up. Even Obama made that observation.

    The leaders who raced us all in there 20 years ago are to blame for most of this.

    Nobody except maybe the demented duffer himself thinks that anything but the best decisions were made. They had months to plan this out and they fumbled it in a way that makes the Keystone Kops look like the picture of efficient organization. It was a colossal cluster foul up that there was no excuse for. I mean, number one, you NEVER withdrawal your troops before you get the civilians out first. And that was just the first of a long line of utterly boneheaded decisions. I mean the odds are that at least some of the decisions should have been good calls or at least not mindless screw ups. But it was literally one after another.

    But you're right, old Joe didn't make the mess... he just did the equivalent of burning an entire city down trying to put out a fire in a single house.

    (I know for a fact that some of our soldiers willfully disobeyed orders, and rounded up some Americans and loyal Afghanis, also)
