Joe Biden only knows three words, “It’s Trump’s fault!”
The rest is an incoherent word salad that only psychiatrists, highly trained medical doctors, and cryptologists can make any sense of.
The Obama administration blamed all its messes on George W. Bush. Biden is just as determined to blame everything on Trump. But it’s really pathetic that Biden was using Afghanistan as his ‘Mission Accomplished’ victory lap, and is now blaming President Trump for making him pull out the troops.
President Joe Biden had no “viable option” other than to withdraw U.S. forces from Afghanistan, according to a senior State Department official who suggested that former President Donald Trump’s team tied their hands with a flawed agreement with the Taliban.
“It was preordained,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters while defending the withdrawal. “It’s a deal that this administration probably would not have made, certainly not in all the detail. But it’s the deal that we inherited.”
Price has no original ideas. This is the same false argument Obama’s people were making for why he had to pull out of Iraq.
Obama, like Biden, turned a fake pullout from Iraq into a victory lap, before then trying to blame the Bush administration for forcing him to pull out of Iraq as the ISIS jayvee team began to roll over the country.
The Taliban would be taking over Afghanistan no matter what the deal was. Biden promised all along to pull out of Afghanistan. So why complain now? Oh right, because the collapse is happening much faster than Milley told Biden it would and so now there’s panic in needle park.
“The idea that the United States could have maintained a significant military presence in Afghanistan … that was just not tenable,” Price maintained. “It was not in the cards, because according to that agreement that was negotiated by the United States, not this administration, but the previous one, if our forces remain there in great numbers after May 1, they could have become the targets of violence.”
American forces would have remained the targets of violence either way. Nor did Biden want to maintain a military presence. Now Biden’s toadies are acting like they wanted to stay, but Trump made them leave?
The rest is an even bigger trainwreck of gaslighting and dumb lies.
Price demurred repeatedly when asked if the Taliban is keeping their end of the bargain — “levels of violence are too high,” he repeated throughout the briefing — and argued that the Taliban’s decision not to attack U.S. forces at least vindicates their efforts to broker a deal.
“I think there’s also a misconception that in order for negotiations, peace negotiations, to take place, there is the requirement that there be peace on the ground,” Price said. “In fact, if you look back through history, very rarely have peace negotiations taken place when peace is present on the ground. What we’re seeing is levels of violence that are of grave concern. They’re certainly not within the spirit of the U.S.-Taliban agreement. But we know that diplomacy is the only way that we are ever going to achieve a durable solution.”
Diplomacy isn’t going to work with Islamic terrorists.
The Obama admin amply proved that. The Taliban have every reason to negotiate, to allow Biden to save face, and no reason to negotiate in good faith, because both sides understand that they’re going to win and that Biden won’t do anything to stop them.
All that’s left is figuring out who to blame when the Taliban are beheading women who took off their burkas in Kabul.
And the Biden admin, its media and its cronies are going to blame President Trump. They’re going to wave away the withdrawal that a few weeks ago they had been triumphantly celebrating, and blame it on the previous administration.
The Afghanistan withdrawal was a huge Biden success and a Trump failure, they will insist.
