More Afghanistan math, there, eh, Curt!!!!!?

A Pentagon report reveals that billions of dollars in weapons and military equipment transferred to the Afghan government was left behind in Afghanistan after the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from the country.

In all, about $7 billion worth of hardware remained in the country after the Taliban seized control, according to the report prepared for Congress which was obtained by CNN.

...former President Donald Trump has repeatedly condemned his successor for failing to bring out more of the gear.

...the list of equipment left behind reads like a Taliban wishlist of armaments.

It includes a total of 9,524 air-to-ground munitions - which can include bombs, machine guns, air-to-surface missiles, rockets, air-launched cruise missiles, carried by warplanes - valued at $6.54 million.

    Yes, wasn't that awful! Over the years we gave all that stuff to them, and even if, in reality, what they had not already sold to the Taliban was only worth a fraction of the amount of money claimed, we should have taken it all away from the Afghan army and brought it home before we left !!

    What a silly thing Biden did, he said "Enough senselessly sacrificing American lives and throwing good money after bad" and he did what we should have done years ago...but he didn't get everything we blew our money on back !!!

    Exactly.

    My sense is that most Americans see "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" as our century's Winston Churchill.
