Joe Biden has become the Taliban’s best friend.
These pajama-clad terrorists couldn’t have even imagined the windfall of sophisticated modern weaponry that was waiting for them in Kabul – all free for the taking and completely unguarded, courtesy of our 46th President and his poor planning.
Biden’s Afghan rout has been a complete disaster, exposing his weakness as commander-in-chief as well as a host of personal issues that raise serious questions about his fitness for office.
Not even the Pentagon knows the magnitude of the loss – they’re preparing a study for that, which should be available in a year or 10. But if photos can tell the story, the Taliban’s haul was immense, worth billions of American taxpayer dollars.
The Taliban are already trading their tired old AKs for modern M4s, M16s and FN-SCARs, complete with sights, lights and IR lasers, for which they now have state-of-the-art night vision systems. Not only did Biden gift the terrorists weapons, he gave them the night too, which has long been one of our military’s greatest assets.
In addition to small arms, the terrorists seized aircraft, both fixed-wing and helicopters, including UH-60s, Russian Mi-17s and Super Tucanos. But what’s most concerning are the D-30 122mm howitzers and sophisticated communications and surveillance equipment – including drones – which the fleeing Afghan army also left behind.
At a press conference this week, when asked if the Afghan army had taken any steps to destroy their sophisticated weapons before they fell into the terrorists’ hands, Maj. Gen. Hank Taylor of the Joint Chief of Staff said only: “I don’t have the answer to that question.”
No terrorist group has ever been resupplied better or in such a short amount of time.
