Loser Mitch McConnell Defends Forever War in Afghanistan After Biden Announces Troop Withdrawal
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is finally criticizing the Biden regime, not for targeting President Trump’s supporters as domestic terrorists, presiding over unprecedented election fraud, surrendering economic clout to China, flooding the border with third-world migrants, or any of the abhorrent ways they are destroying the country.
Instead, McConnell is taking aim at Biden for his recent announcement that troops will be removed from the war zone in Afghanistan by Sept. 11 of this year. If Biden lives up to his word, the longest war in U.S. history will conclude after two decades with virtually nothing to show for it.
The former Senate majority leader is worried about defense contractors and special interests who will lose power and prestige once troops are removed from Afghanistan. McConnell is thrilled for troops to be continuously thrown into the meat grinder to improve gross domestic product and boost the stock market.
McConnell’s tweet in favor of forever wars can be seen here:
Other members of the War Party, both Republicans and Democrats, are criticizing Biden’s announcement that the troops will finally come home from Afghanistan.
“President Biden will have, in essence, canceled an insurance policy against another 9/11,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Democrat shills for the military-industrial complex spoke of the need to bring equality to the oppressed women of Afghanistan, as feminism and gender-identity politics are apparently America’s only enduring values these days.
“Although this decision was made in coordination w/our allies, the U.S. has sacrificed too much to bring stability to Afghanistan to leave w/o verifiable assurances of a secure future,” said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). “It undermines our commitment to the Afghan people, particularly Afghan women.”
“I certainly will not be supportive of any assistance to Afghanistan if there is backsliding on civil society, the rights that women have been able to achieve. And if the Taliban ultimately doesn’t keep its obligations, then there will be consequences and one of them will be that there will be no money flowing. So I don’t know how they will rebuild the country,” Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said.
The American public soured on the Afghanistan war many years ago, but McConnell continues to defend the occupation even as it bankrupts the U.S. and costs Republicans votes. No wonder former President Trump is blaming McConnell for losing two winnable Senate seats in Georgia and referring to him as a “dumb son of a b*tch.”
