Snatching Defeat From The Jaws Of Victory In Afghanistan

When Joe Biden decided that snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in Afghanistan, there are rumors that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Milley argued against it. It is even said that Milley channeled his “white rage” and made an emotional appeal. Biden went ahead, and now instead of a 2500 personnel security force, we have 7,000 Marines and members of the 82nd Airborne Division in country.

Back during the glorious Trump years, Secretary of Defense James Mattis (General, USMC, ret.) sent a blistering resignation later to President Trump when he disagreed with Trump’s foreign policy in Syria and plans for a draw down in Afghanistan. As a matter of fact, Mattis endorsed Creepy Joe Biden for President. General Mattis is strangely quiet about White Flag Joe snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

That brings us to SecDef Austin and CJCS “White Rage” Milley. If they are unhappy with Pedo Joe’s snatching, they have been “radio silent”.

According to Vox.com back in May, the planning meeting was emotional for Milley:

During the meeting, according to four sources from the White House, Pentagon, and elsewhere familiar with what happened, Milley made an impassioned — and at times “emotional,” according to some — case to consider keeping US troops in the country.

Milley, who was the deputy commanding general of US forces in Afghanistan and served three tours in the country, essentially argued that if American forces fully withdraw by May 1, it would open the door for the Taliban to overtake the country, making life worse for millions of Afghans and imperiling US national security goals.

Women’s rights “will go back to the Stone Age,” Milley said, according to two of the sources. He argued that it wasn’t worth leaving the country after “all the blood and treasure spent” there over the last two decades. He also added that, in his view, the lack of 2,500 US troops in Afghanistan would make it harder to stem threats from a nuclear-armed Pakistan.

Oh my gravy, Milley, when not cosplaying General Woke, thought strategically. Who knew?

LLoyd Austin, on the other hand, sounds like Biden’s kind of General:

After Milley finished, Secretary of Defense Austin during his turn to speak said he understood that there was a lot of emotion surrounding this issue after two decades of war. But, Austin asserted, “We’re not going to make decisions based on emotion,” two of the sources said.

Some in the room took that comment as a direct rebuke of Milley, while others understood the secretary’s remarks as simply saying he wanted the Afghanistan review to proceed in a professional, fact-based manner.

Sounds like it was a rebuke of Milley to me. Milley wants to keep his job which is why he started playing General Woke.

If Austin or Milley had a shred of dignity, honor or courage, each of them would resign. Instead, they are hiding under their desks. Worm boy John Kirby was asked by Fox New Channel’s Jennifer Griffin about Milley and Austin:

That’s Pentagon speak for hiding under their desks and praying to Phobos, the Greek God of Fear, for redemption. There will be no redemption for either of them. The price of burqas in Kabul has doubled. Afghan men and women who have risked their lives to assist international forces are doomed. Women who have known freedom all their lives and are educated are now terrified. That’s all on Milley and Austin.

Imagine being those young women. This is on Milley and Austin. The State Department has long been a hotbed of beta worms. The Defense Department is not much better. But, this is uncharted territory. This is Saigon, 1975 and Tehran 1980 combined. President Jimmy Carter lost eight service personnel trying to rescue 52 hostages. This is much, much worse.

At least 10,000 civilians are on the ground in Afghanistan. Seven thousand Marines and members of the 82nd Airborne Division are now on the ground. In his July 8 statement, Joe Biden said:

So let me ask those who wanted us to stay: How many more — how many thousands more of America’s daughters and sons are you willing to risk? How long would you have them stay?

Joe Biden just raised the possibility of more Afghanistan War dead exponentially. No American had died in Afghanistan in the last 18 months. By upping the number from 2,500 to 7,000, there is a statistical likelihood of combat or non-combat related deaths. Joe is risking our troops because he is and always has been a self-important dullard.

Snatching defeat from victory will cost us all. Elections has consequences.

There will be no redemption for Lloyd Austin and Mark Milley. They will be known in history for the cowards they are. They are poised to speak at 3:00 p.m. E.D.T.. They have already violated their oaths of office. Even if they throw their resignation letters on the table today, classes will be taught in war-fighting schools about their ignominy.

    Really ! The first order of duty to the Constitution was to remove this fraud and place the rightful Commander in Chief in.
    The second order of duty to arrest and charge all these traitors that are now running ( ruining) the country.
    Third order is to resign and reinstate Officers who you have run out that actual care about the USA and the Constitution.

    Trying to save face after all the posturing that they have done. We know what you are.

    May GOD have mercy on you, But I believe you left that chance far behind.

    Dignity, honor and courage have always been in short supply in Washington DC. (Having served a couple of tours in the Pentagon, I know.) In the Biden administration they appear to be completely absent, along with common sense.
