Those who fail to learn from history probably don't understand math either. The thousands of US soldiers who died in Afghanistan under the three presidents before Biden is worse than a 13 casualties while Biden was president.

Germany invaded Poland and Czechoslovakia two years before America entered the World War II. In fact when those countries were being invaded America declared its neutrality. Compare that to Joe Biden who warned that Russia would be invading Ukraine before even Zelenski and the Ukrainians admitted it.

Compare FDR's neutrality to Joe Biden who has supplied the Ukrainians with billions of dollars of weapons and indispensable military intelligence.

Consider that Ukrainians have fought off the mighty Russian military for over two months now while Afghanistan left to their own devices (and our weapons) folded in about two minutes.

Ukrainians are fighting for democracy. The Afghanistan majority is content with theocracy.

    Here's some numbers, Curt.

    "That feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" led our withdrawal from Afghanistan, an act nearly 80% of Americans agreed with.

    By the time our last troop left Afghanistan, America's approval of the performance of "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" dropped, according to the various polls, about 10 points.

    And, since then, "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" has seen his approval fall even lower.

    You seem to think that the cumulative opinions as measured by polls equal facts. That's another math error you make.

    Half the people polled have a below average IQ. Of the half who aren't below average a good portion of them don't think logically. Many relatively intelligent people view things on an emotional level.

    It's sad for the final 13 soldiers' families. But it's important to realize that many more US soldiers would have died if Biden hadn't pulled the plug.

    That 80% or whatever approved of leaving Afghanistan but most didn't like how the exit unfolded isn't a surprise. It's like finding out that people approve of a sumptuous banquet but disapprove of the piles of dirty dishes, pots and pans left afterwards.

    The final days of wars are always messy and tragic. Thousands of soldiers died after the WWI armistice was signed. Likewise US soldiers in Europe died in combat after the ceasefire and the German army surrendered.

    I think it's appropriate to type out what I've been thinking through for a while, i.e.: My SS Blue MAGA Sanctimony Rankings. This is enjoyable, though exactly easy because there is a unique quality to the sanctimony of each of you. po's is angry, Curt's is smug. Donna's?, baffled? Anyway, from most to least, and since Curt just opined not only on my inferiority, or conservatives', but, "half the people."

    Anyway, as I say:

    1. po
    2. Curt
    3. isle
    4. Donna

    ...based on years of research.
