The U.S. is being made a fool of on the world’s stage thanks to Joe Biden and his criminal lack of leadership at a time when this nation needs it the most.
We all witnessed in horror as the cognitively deficient commander in chief ordered a withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan before evacuating American citizens and civilian allies as Taliban forces captured the Kabul airport.
A severe lack of security at the Kabul airport emboldened ISIS-K terrorists to set off a suicide bomb that killed 13 U.S. servicemen and countless Afghan civilians.
To make matters worse, the hastiness of Biden’s pull-out mission forced soldiers to abandon billions upon billions of dollars in military equipment, including tanks, jets, guns, and other munitions. Terrorist groups in the region, including ISIS, have since purchased abandoned U.S. military equipment from the Taliban as the group struggles to finance its Islamic regime.
A Pentagon report released in April found the U.S. abandoned $7 billion worth of military equipment in Afghanistan, including 78 aircrafts, 9,524 air-to-ground munitions, and more than 40,000 military vehicles.
A year has passed since that terrible embarrassment.
However, for the Taliban, the absence of U.S. troops presence in Afghanistan is a cause célèbre. They commemorated the one-year anniversary of Biden’s withdrawal blunder with a massive military parade at Bagram air base featuring all of the high-powered military equipment soldiers were forced to leave behind.
Footage and images show their black-and-white flag attached to heavy military tanks and helicopters flying over the base.
The Taliban celebrated the anniversary of complete withdrawal of American forces from AFG in Bagram base today.

“We are gathered here to celebrate the first anniversary of the withdrawal,” Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, told local outlets at the ceremony. “I am proud that our country was liberated on this day and American troops were forced to leave Afghanistan.”
Hundreds of Taliban fighters sprayed glittery foam and waved flags in the air in central Kabul to celebrate their newly declared “independence day,” The Post reported.
Aug. 30, 2021, was the day the last remaining U.S. troop departed Afghanistan. American citizens were left behind to survive the radical Islamic takeover of Afghan society. Women’s rights and civil liberties in the country immediately tanked, as did the entire economy.
Following the Taliban’s invasion of Kabul and other Afghan cities, the government officially collapsed. President Ashraf Ghani, Afghan officials and diplomats fled the country and took with them hoards of cash and other assets.
And if you had any doubt as to how “President” Joe Biden feels about the U.S. military, just look at his behavior during the honorable transfer of fallen soldiers killed because of his botched evacuation mission.
Most disrespectful president EVER. Checks his watch after a fallen soldier is carried by. As if he needs to be somewhere else. You’re both subhuman scum! pic.twitter.com/dDpxWs5La5
