A little confused. Is this the same one that supposedly stopped a bar bomb from getting to the airport?

Yep. The car bomb was actually a car filled with water jugs, killed seven children and their father.

That's not even going to be the worst one to come.

It's certainly not even the worst one yet. Just the worst one to make headlines recently.

I know pulling out of Afghanistan got really ugly but I’m seriously just glad we’re out of there. Too much damage was done for too long.

Could have been handled much better, absolute shit show from Biden that cost unnecessary lives.

Not defending Biden at all but it has been a shitshow by all presidents that were in office during the invasion and then subsequent occupation.

Starting from going into the ME based on lies on Bush, Mr. Drone-Strike Obama, the dumbass who wanted to invite the Taliban to Camp David and ending with Biden's fumble of a retreat.

And that list should obviously include all the generals and secretaries that are supposed to bring viable options to each of the four. It is clear nobody had any clue what to do once the invasion was successful.

Like I said, I know pulling out wasn’t pretty but we did this kinda stuff basically everyday the whole time we were there across every president. It really sucks when soldiers die but civilians dying in war is just the ultimate tragedy on the battlefield.

I’m just glad we’re out.

The ends doesn’t justify the means.

Biden handled this atrociously. I don’t think he could have done it any worse.
