Mission Accomplished ????

On May 1, 2003, not even two years after President George W. Bush put us into the war in Iraq, the “Mission Accomplished” speech was televised all over the world from the deck of the aircraft carrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln. What a joke ! That was not only untrue, but it made the United States the laughing stock of the world.

Now here we are again ... 18 years later and we are still trying to get out of a place that, in my opinion, we should never have been in anyway. On top of that we have just come out of another horrendous stain on our country … the last four years of the Trump presidency. Whenyou look at it you can easily see why the rest of the world is having a hard time trusting or believing in us. Of course that brings us to today and I want to put in my 2 cents worth.

Of course I was, and am, extremely sad about what is happening with this pull out of Afghanistan. HOWEVER, I have to say that I am pleased that President Biden has put the country ahead of his own ego when it comes to this issue. Bush, Obama and Trump talked big about it and how they were going to be the one to end it … but it all fell apart when they realized how it might affect them politically.

Now President Biden is actually bringing a close to this 20 year war and he is being castigated on all sides for doing so! There is no way that this can be politically “correct” or without loss of service members or personnel and I am sure he is well aware of this, but he has one big thing going for him ... HE HAS THE GUTS TO ACTUALLY BRING IT TO FRUITION.

Thank you President Biden and God bless our country.

The Taliban didn’t go anywhere for 20 years, just biding their time. Such tragedy to lose those young people. Well done for getting out of there however.

It is sad the things we did accomplish will revert to the old ways again. I feel so badly for the women. They have had a taste of freedom, education and an actual say in their own lives, only to lose it all again.

Apparently, America knows how to win the battle but not the war. This had to happen. I am not sure if the resultant mess had to happen as much as it has.
