바이든의 마음에는 그의 잘못이 없다. 우리 동맹은 모두 그가 강력한 지도자라고 생각합니다. 우리의 적이 문제를 일으키지 않습니다. 바이든 대통령의 용감한 노력 덕분에 미국이 돌아왔다. None of this chaos will have no effect on America’s standing in the world. All people have to do is go to Kabul Airport and they will be evacuated.
While we may have some 5,000 combat forces at the airport, we don’t have the resources to rescue anyone.
아니, we will not send American combat forces outside the airport perimeter to escort Americans to the airport.
영국 사람들이, the French, the Indians and other nations are all sending troops into Kabul to rescue their citizens, but there is no need for the U.S. to do that.
Americans aren’t having any trouble getting through the Taliban checkpoints. 진짜, everything is just fine and dandy. If Americans, or our Afghan allies, don’t show up at the airport, we assume they really don’t want to leave.
That’s what is going through Biden’s brain.
The reality is the most powerful nation in the world is now reduced to relying on the good will of the Taliban to save Americans.
Russia and China have warned the world that the U.S. is an inevitable and irreversible decline.
I’ve been wracking my brain for historical comparisons to President Biden’s actions: Nero fiddling while Rome burned. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain announcing his negotiations with Adolph Hitler had ensured and that “peace is at hand” as Hitler prepared to invade Europe. But the example I keep coming back to is Baghdad Bob, Saddam Hussein’s Minister of information who, during the first Iraq War in 2003, insisted Americans would have to surrender to the Iraq military or be burned in their tanks, while American forces surrounded him.
I pray Joe Biden wakes up to reality and becomes the president America needs today. But I fear that he, like Baghdad Bob, is incapable of it.
