It’s as if we must TEACH our Government how to WALK all over again…

How did this happen?

… 

 

Empty U.S. military bases overtaken by the Taliban. Our partners and allies left to fend for themselves. Where were the hand-off ceremonies, the passing of the torch, the symbolic gestures of UNITY? 

There was no exit plan. Just like there was no plan for victory. Just like there was no plan in Iraq… “We’ll be greeted as liberators.” Politicians, beholden. Making vital life and death decisions… securing THEIR agendas and THEIR political future first. 

The Will of the People was to bring our troops HOME. The implied part of that sentiment was only IF and WHEN Afghanistan was secure. The American People were led to believe Afghanistan was secure. The actual situation on the ground in the region was not being fully elevated… 

 

What the hell were we not told. 

 

There seems to have been some THIRD-PARTY interest involved in the success of the advancing Taliban forces. Then again, Donald Trump chose to telegraph to our adversaries EXACTLY when we would be leaving. Joe Biden just decided to go along… 
Two sides. Same coin. 

What is the vital piece of intelligence we’re missing? The American People can only form their opinions based on what’s made available to them, and none of us thought the Government of Afghanistan would fall in 90 days… let alone ONE WEEK. 

 

One trillion dollars. Twenty years. Thousands of LIVES. What did all that MONEY go toward… did “Fat Leonard” take up shop in Afghanistan? We are now left to ponder what happened, as our HISTORY unfolds before us…

It feels as if the Towers have fallen once again. 

 

… 

 

The message of the American People is not being told. The Will of our Country is being SILENCED… and it seems WE are the last to know. It’s been going on for so long now the MAJORITY of us weren’t even born when it began. 

In order to determine the path of a distant celestial body, we need only TWO confirmed positions, observed at different points in time. From this we can extrapolate where it will be in the future… 

 

… 

 

 

… 

 

Right now in the United States of America it’s 1975.

… 

 

THE PEOPLE have already learned that lesson… that’s why we ALWAYS support our Troops no matter what our Government has done. 

And now look at what OUR Government has done.

… 

 

Fool me ONCE, shame on YOU. Fool me TWICE… shame on US

 

… 

 

Our future has not been written. We can make the CHANGE… but only if we CHOOSE to do so. 

… 

 

 

… 

 

This far… and no farther.
