Did Sharon leave the settlers and collaborators behind in Gaza before pulling out? Must have missed that.

No. He dragged them out with force kicking and screaming, and left the towns and villages just outside the Gaza strip to suffer the consequences of the withdrawal (and no proper compensation for the "settlers" for their lost homes and assets).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Nobody is looking at Sharon for a model of what to do. But at least he didn't pull a Biden.

Not very different in essence.

The US standing with you meant something. This pull out has lessen that meaning. Everyone we support will be thinking about that along with their enemies.

very side times for normal Afghans. The question is did the regular civilians even try to defend themselves or just gave up without a fight. Or they knew that there is no fight to be had against the Taliban...

They needed the US to lead. Did anyone really believe they could defend their country on their own?

This joke?

Would the result have been different, no.

The notion that we would see these horrific scenes if Biden doesn't prematurely close Bagram Airfield without evacuating people is preposterous!

Comparing a statement you disagree with disgusting jokes is not like you.

You are going to see horrific scenes as long as the Taliban are in power. Five or ten years from now will it be because we pulled out all at once or because we pulled out?

I'm just disgusted by how bad Biden has bungled the disengagement and by those excusing him by saying it was inevitable when it was clearly not.

This episode is an embarrassment for the US. No reason to minimize the blame or for Joe to pull a Trump by dodging blame and making straw man arguments.

This was Biden's call and he gets the blame.

Now for it makes no difference on how he pulled out and the results would have been the same.
Taliban is in power either way. They are going to to execute and carry on their rule by terror either way. In a year, 2 or any amount it will not have mattered either way. When they execute women, gays and other they disagree with we will not hear a peep. So if you want to be disgusted by the current optics then so be it. Just don't fool yourself this timing of the pull out will matter one bit.

Ask him to multiply 13x17 out loud without paper, my bet is he canít.
Probably most of the country can't.  :)

Most of the country doesnít have to make major decisions that affect everyone (including the minority who can)

Most of the country doesn't have experts that can. You have those experts to guide you. He should have listened to them.

I feel this debacle will have serious ramifications, I don't know exactly what or were, but it's not just a matter of the poor afghans who will suffer.
Anyone feel the same?

They are going to execute people they don't like, and that's on them.
There are people being executed *because they helped us*, people that we in principle are offering visas to. In an orderly drawdown (days /weeks instead of hours) they would have made it out.
From a practical "America first" perspective, when we abandon *those* afghans, it will make it exponentially harder to get cooperation anywhere else

If CV vs. Dan deteriorates, it's totally on Biden. In Trump era, they always agreed.

What joke? Is pointing out that some people voted for Biden because they were upset about Trump's tweets and this disaster is a result of that choice a joke?
