  1. I believe Biden and his advisors were banking on us pulling out, and the Taliban taking the country in six months to a year and then being able to shrug his shoulders. However, pulling air support from the Afghan troops sped things up quite rapidly. Over 50,000 Afghan troops have died in the last five years fighting the Taliban. They had the will to fight, as long as they could call in air support. Biden took that away, which caused their combat model to rapidly change after relying on that for the past 15+ years. The worst thing now is that they have our weapons, Apache helicopters, and fighter jets at their disposal.
  2. I disagree with that. There hasn't been an American death by the Taliban in 18 months. There wasn't an extreme shift until Biden tried to pull everyone out over the course of two days.
  3. The U.S. military taught the Afghan military how to fight like we do. Controlling the fighting on the ground and through the air, while resupplying through the air. Biden is to blame for this part. He started pulling not only military officials out of the area, but he started also pulling private military contractors out of the area. When you tell the Afghan military to fight, you cannot take one of the main pillars away from their fighting strategy. https://www.usnews.com/news/world-report/articles/2021-07-21/number-of-private-military-contractors-in-afghanistan-drops-precipitously-as-biden-pushes-withdrawal-plan Without the US, the Afghan air force relied on zoom calls for training and repairs for their aircraft. https://www.businessinsider.com/without-us-afghan-air-force-uses-zoom-calls-for-training-2021-7 That is absolutely unacceptable, no matter who the President is. And now, it appears that an Afghan military plane has been shot down that was fleeing the country. https://www.newsweek.com/military-plane-fleeing-afghanistan-shot-down-uzbekistan-1619774 This is becoming a **** show fast. Reports are that only 1,200 people out of 88,000 (people and their families) that have helped the U.S. in the past 20 years have made it out of there safely.
  4. That is mainly due to the Benoit murder/suicide and them having to remove a lot of content associated with Benoit with only a few months left before it was released. From what I read he was an important part of season mode.
  5. There's no way he'll be convicted of felony murder. No way. The DA rushed the charges because he's in a contested primary right now and is being investigated by the G.B.I. This is the same DA, mind you, that said a couple of weeks ago that a taser was considered a deadly weapon.
  6. Swastikas aren't banned in the US. It falls under the first. Texas vs Johnson affirmed this.
  7. Even though I am not a fan of it, the first amendment would disagree with you.
  8. Yes it would have. You obviously don't know your history. We were headed to war no matter what.
  9. It's not your property to destroy. I don't see how this is controversial.
  10. My stat was in a year. But you knew that. If you want something locally to me, rioters destroyed a restaurant that employed women trying to escape from domestic violence and homelessness.
  11. No, I am asking for specific examples. But of course you knew that. https://newstalk955.com/rioters-kill-black-officer-destroy-black-businesses/ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8378601/Two-people-killed-police-officer-shot-violence-erupts-Iowa-town-Davenport.html In other news, the Minneapolis Police Dept has stopped negotiations with the police union. Good move. Public sector unions are terrible anyway.
  12. So explain all the deaths because of the rioters please?
  13. Do you have proof that they were no danger? You made the claim.
  14. Nine unarmed black people were killed in 2019. Just nine. Only three so far this year.
  15. Trump never packed the Supreme Court. FDR's agenda was to help the citizens, so he threw Japanese Americans into internment camps?
  16. The dude was running in a neighborhood that wasn't his. Let's assume it was an act of racism. Eliminating the police will only increase these types of encounters where the neighborhood takes the law into their own hands. I'm not saying we can't police our own neighborhoods, but we can also have the police there as well.
  17. You quoted a guy from the party of slavery, Jim Crow, and the President who forced Japanese Americans into work camps and tried to pack the Supreme Court to push his agenda through. He also prolonged the Depression through his policies.
  18. ............but we just condemned the Arbery shooting because of vigilante justice. This is what you will be getting more of. And if the next goal is to disarm the public like some Dems want, how will we enforce it with no police. Will you send the military in the enforce the law, because I thought we were against the military coming in to enforce the law? And how will these community enforcers be deputized? If you want the government to be over them, they'd have to be deputized, thus they are once again a police force. I mean, the only other choice is to have what they have in Africa. The rich have their own privatized security and the rest are left with fending for themselves.
  19. First paragraph: Explain to me how that process would help the Unabomber, Jeffrey Dahmer, and the like. Second paragraph: So now when someone steps on someone else's property, instead of calling the police to defuse the situation, they will now shoot first and ask questions later.
  20. All that needs to be done is ending public sector unions so they can't hide behind them and eliminate qualified immunity.
  21. Perhaps the protests weren't permitted on that street. I'd like to get some information on why he was told to move. We never get the before and after on any video though.
  22. I've seen it several times. It looks like he paintbrushes the officer with his phone. If he didn't touch them, then they should've waited a little longer and gave him another order to move or just arrested him and de-escalate.
  23. Oh. I agree. There were definitely better ways they could've handled it like you stated. But I am not blaming them for shoving him back. Dude could have had a shank or anything.
