What Joe Biden's botched pullout now means to most Americans

 


(My new American Thinker post)


As I recall, President Obama ended the Iraq War 10 years ago.  We returned in 2014 and are still there.  Will we watch a repeat performance and return to Afghanistan?

According to a new poll, a majority of Americans believe that we are going back:   

Nearly 7 in 10 Americans, 69 - 24 percent, say it was the right thing to do to end the war in Afghanistan.

However, Americans give Biden a negative 31 - 65 percent score for the way he handled withdrawing all U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

More than 6 in 10 Americans, 62 - 28 percent, say they think American troops will have to return to Afghanistan to fight terrorism.

Time will tell but I agree with the aforementioned 62%. We got out prematurely and poorly and that usually means that a future brigade will have to go back and clean up the mess.

Perhaps my fellow Americans are pessimistic because they saw Secretary of State Antony Blinken testify before the Congress.  The Secretary looked weak even when he got softballs from Democrats.  He tried to blame the Trump administration but the polls show that the voters are holding the Biden administration on this one.  He answered with "false choices" about leaving now or staying around for a long time.  Then he tried to politicize the story by saying that the Trump team did not leaving him a plan.

So it’s likely we will go back.  I pray that it won’t be in response to a major terrorist act hatched in Afghanistan.  Unfortunately, hatching terrorist attacks is what terrorists do.  Do you remember the 1990s?

We say birthday to Orlando Cepeda, one of the greatest players from Puerto Rico, who was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, on this day in 1937.
Cepeda broke with the Giants in 1958 and was NL Rookie of the Year: .312 average, 25 HR & 96 RBI.    He followed that with some great seasons, including leading the NL with 46 HR & 142 RBI in 1961.   Cepeda played with St Louis and was selected as the 1967 NL MVP.   Later, Orlando was traded to Atlanta and finished with Boston in 1974.    Overall, he hit .297 with 379 HR, 1,365 RBI over 2,124 games.    

Cepeda was inducted to The Hall of Fame in 1999.

Another September 17th and we begin today with a “happy birthday” to the US Constitution.    

The document, and the governing system it created, was finally put to the test when George Washington was inaugurated in March 1789.     We remember today the document and its history.
