“You were given the choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour, and you will have war,” Winston Churchill.
Churchill’s words apply consistently to appeasing Islamic terrorism. The more you appease, the more they kill you.
Biden made the decision to shut down Bagram Air Base, to turn over Kabul to the Taliban, and to leave an American force in a besieged airport surrounded by Taliban.
And he made the decision to outsource airport security to the Taliban.
It wasn’t just that Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan had to get past Taliban checkpoints. The Taliban were the ones checking papers and coordinating on security with our officers.
Taliban commanders were invited into Kabul airport to discuss security arrangements.
When the Taliban beat Americans and shot people, it was because Biden had outsourced security to them.
Biden began claiming that the Taliban would protect us from ISIS-K because they were “sworn enemies”.
But one doesn’t follow from the other.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. That’s especially true when it comes to infidels. Iran coordinated with Al Qaeda on attacking America despite the Sunni-Shiite split. The gap between Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood that the Obama administration counted on in Syria and Libya failed miserably. Most notably in Benghazi.
Islamic Jihadists are our enemy. They’re all our enemies and they will overcome divisions and a desire to kill each other when it means killing us.
Biden counted on the Taliban to keep ISIS-K away from the airport. And the Taliban might indeed fight ISIS-K for their own sake, but the idea that the Taliban would protect Americans from ISIS-K was as pathetically delusional as the attempt to pay off Jihadist militias in Benghazi.
Biden, like Obama, learned nothing about the treasonous folly of appeasing Jihadists. This is the outcome.
