Were there truly available options?
Commercial flights were still leaving at that time so I would say yes.

All I ask is if "YOU" gave your kids 19 warnings, not anyone else giving the warnings. I want to understand if you believe in personal responsibility. By your response it seems like I nailed it to a tee.

Nailed what? That I believe in personal responsibility? I've literally said those exact words many times before. It irks me when you take something I believe in, establish your own set of "facts" for a situation, and then try to apply my beliefs to your narrative.

In case you aren't clear on my stance here, I DO NOT KNOW what went down between the government and Americans in Afghanistan. I don't know what was said to whom, and I don't know any of the circumstances in which these people found themselves in. I'm not blaming the Biden Admin, and I'm not blaming the people. If you want to play the blame game, I believe there's enough to go around going back 40 years.

Regardless of ALL of this, there are Americans currently stranded in Afghanistan. That is all.

Since we're talking about how this admin screwed up, let's talk about what the other admin screwed up on....

I think that pretty much defines a "but officer" argument.
No that doesn't define "but officer".
You try and get out of your wrong doing by pointing out the other wrong doing.
...but officer why did you pull me over, that guy was speeding?

Biden screwed up on his withdraw plan. He needs to own it.

My beef is with the hypocrites who pretend the last admin played no part in it.

Psaki believes then are not stranded as long we are committed to getting them out and are getting them out. Like I said we can go 100 pages on this.

I want you to answer honestly.

If trump would have followed the EXACT same steps as biden and the exact same thing would have happened.

Would you be saying this?

So as long as they will eventually be rescued (which isn't a given), they aren't considered stranded? And if someone will eventually be cured, they aren't sick?

Ask her. Her context is they are still going to get them out so they are not stranded. I get you disagree but going another 10 pages will not change that.

You're right. We've just had too many disagreements these past few days.

I don't believe you are intentionally dishonest. Your argue like a boxer who is convinced he's winning as long as his feet are still moving, no matter how many punches landed or were taken. And when the bell rings and the other guy goes to his corner, if your feet are still moving, you're convinced you won, scorecard be damned.

Time for a DDF break. Happy New Year, everyone.

A break is always good as is looking in a mirror.  :)

I am not their travel agent.  ::)
They were given warnings and for whatever reason ignored them.

That is separate from the issue of pulling out before all Americans were out.

Several people bring him up. I mostly respond to that.
