“The mission” was guaranteed to fail from day one. You can’t build a nation with an occupying army.
Rapid antigen testing is widely available in the US, providing results in minutes. I doubt there’s an airport in the nation that doesn’t have a testing center on-site or very close by.
Is Ted going anti-vaccine, next?
Get vaccinated, problem solved.
This did not age well.
“The Three Laws of Teledildonics”
Are there Afghans who don’t want the US troops to leave?
Are they only corrupt leeches, or are some of them good people who would like to live under something besides corrupt grifters or authoritarian fanatics?
Comparing this to the Nazi occupation of Paris is insulting those people & dismisses the tragedies about to ensue. Is scoring points against “Imperialists” is more important to you, or do you actually think the Taliban will be like the 4th Republic? (eye roll)
Instead of talking about that, you want to spell check & avoid admitting this is a horrible take.
The thing about Ted, is he wouldn’t serve in the violent Revolution he seems to crave here, either. He’s indistinguishable from the keyboard Nazis who want to start Civil War II here, but won’t be out where they might get shot.
We’re leaving Afghanistan because the American people have figured out we’re not nation building there. It’s very much like our withdrawal from Vietnam. We could stay another 20 years, if there was domestic support. There isn’t & that’s obviously for the best.
There are some genuinely decent Afghanis opposed to the Taliban. There are a lot of corrupt grifters who saw the US as a gravy train.
Have enough decency to realize some decent Afghanis are going to suffer.
It looks pretty clear that the Taliban will regain control of Afghanistan. Maybe you don’t give a sch*tt about what happens to girls trying to get an education in Afghanistan, but this ’toon shows what your real values are.
As opposed to used motor oil or the emissions from internal combustion engines?
Old batteries are a solvable problem, just like everything else. (eye roll)
