Joe Biden took a situation that should have been a great moment in US history and turned it into the biggest and most dangerous foreign policy blunder on record…Biden’s bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan was so bad that we haven’t even scratched the surface on the ramifications that will be felt for decades to come.
This is what happens when a mentally ill, confused blathering old man is installed into the White House.
We lost 13 of our bravest, thanks to Biden’s ineptitude and stupidity, and countless foreigners died at the airport, along with a family of 9 who was killed during Biden’s controversial drone strike.
All of this has been a devastating blow to the nation – but nobody’s been harder hit than our vets and active-duty military, who are watching as 20-years of their blood, sweat, and tears go down the toilet.
And the active military and vets who watched as this unfolded, are now struggling to find a reason to live as they look back on what they lost – friends, wives, sanity, over this 20-year mess, that ended in a complete and utter failure and shambles.
To make it worse, now, new proof has emerged that shows Joe’s disastrous decisions are now causing more vets to consider suicide.
Daily Wire reported that a new report, between August 13-29, while the Biden administration was conducting the last stages of their disastrous exit from Afghanistan, the Veterans Affairs Suicide hotline received over 35,000 calls from veterans.
“Veterans placed more than 35,000 calls to the Veterans Crisis Line between Aug. 13 and 29, according to VA data provided to the Washington Examiner,” The Washington Examiner reported on Tuesday. A spokesman for the VA informed the Examiner that its own analysis showed there was a roughly 7% increase from the same period last year.
The Atlantic Council wrote:
Following the imminent end of US military operations in Afghanistan, we should expect a new spike in PTSD. The scenes of chaos in Kabul and of unchallenged Taliban seizures across the country compound the narrative that the US failed. Photographs of the Taliban in salvaged US military uniforms and gear, and stories about the abandonment of Afghan interpreters and others who supported American units evoke frustration and sadness among vets. Comparisons to the US pullout from Saigon and European leaders accusing the United States of “weakening NATO” further degrade the resilience of American veterans.
Afghanistan veteran Matt Zeller, chair of the Association of Wartime Allies board of directors, told CNN, “I’m now sitting here 20 years removed almost from the very event that propelled me into the military, which was the attacks of September 11. And now I’m wondering if the last 20 years were completely pointless and in vain. All the friends I lost in Afghanistan — what were their deaths for? What was their sacrifice for if this was the end state? I don’t think I did anything worthwhile at this point.”
This is absolutely shameful.
What Joe Biden has done to this country and our nation’s heroes is unforgivable.
And if he had any soul or sense of honor and dignity, he’d resign in shame.
