Joe Biden Is No Donald Trump, And the Taliban Knew It

AMAC Exclusive By: Shane Harris

However often Democrats and the mainstream media may parrot Biden’s claim that he was “only doing what President Trump would have done” in pulling out of Afghanistan, it doesn’t appear that many people are buying it. After the 45th President’s sterling record of success in the Middle East that included the historic Abraham Accords, the defeat of ISIS, and the successful elimination of numerous dangerous terrorist leaders, the common refrain heard around many dinner tables and coffee shops in the United States this week is “this never would’ve happened if Trump was still in office.”

The American people are right – the unmitigated disaster that has unfolded over the past several days would not have occurred had President Trump overseen the withdraw. The reason why is simple: the Taliban feared President Trump as they clearly do not fear Joe Biden. And for good reason.

During President Trump’s time in office, he engaged in a series of negotiations with the Taliban to orchestrate an orderly withdrawal from Afghanistan that was contingent on the Taliban adhering to certain conditions. But President Trump promised that if the Taliban were to violate those conditions, he would respond swiftly and decisively with deadly force.

On September 4, 2019, the Taliban exploded a car bomb in Kabul that killed more than 10 people, including an American service member. True to his word, President Trump ceased negotiations and responded by ordering a devastating aerial bombardment, making clear that the Taliban was not to cross the United States under Trump’s leadership.

Just days after the attack, at a speech outside the Pentagon commemorating the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, President Trump said that “they [the Taliban] thought they could use the attack to show strength, but actually what they showed is weakness,” adding that “the last four days we have hit our enemy harder than they have ever been hit before, and that will continue.”

The numbers support President Trump’s assertion. According to Air Force data, the United States unleashed 948 bombs and missiles on Afghanistan in September of 2019, far outpacing any other single month since at least 2013. The 948 figure represents a full 13% increase from the next highest monthly total of 841, which occurred in both September and October of 2018.

In fact, due in large part to the ferocity of the airstrikes in September of 2019, the United States dropped more pieces of ordinance on Afghanistan than any other year of the war, totaling 7,423. Even during the height of the war in 2010 and 2011, coalition aircraft only dropped 5,100 and 5,411 bombs and missiles, respectively.

The numbers show that President Trump was not afraid to follow through on his word. He established a credible deterrence through his use of force, placing the United States in a strong negotiating position when talks resumed. As a result, the United States did not see a single combat death in Afghanistan for 18 months.

Conversely, President Biden has not established any sort of credible deterrence. Biden did not outline any conditions for the United States’ withdraw and has shown zero evidence that he is willing to use force to keep the Taliban in line as did President Trump. As a result, the Taliban have responded as all bullies and thugs do, by seeing just how much they can get away with.

With President Trump in office, the Taliban knew they must adhere to the terms laid out by the United States, lest they risk a return of the withering destruction they faced in 2019. With President Biden, there appears to be no such threat. As a result, chaos reigns in the streets of Kabul, and the Taliban are resurgent in the region once again.

We hope you've enjoyed this article. While you're here, we have a small favor to ask...

No, not impeached but arrest all that helped to bring our country to this place of almost total collapse and take over by the socialist & communist. What Biden did is called Treasonous, in the US here’s what should be done-‘According to federal law, as defined in 18 United States Code Section 2381, “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason, and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States”.

Aside from the obvious, the lefties, the liberals,the Democrats,Joe Biden, The real people responsible for this are the Rino Republicans. They have sabotaged our country at every possible opportunity. Allowing idiocy to rule the day while cowering in the corner .Just like the Democrat Communist Party. A house divided cannot stand but the Rinos really have not grasped the concept yet. or they probably have because they’re actually just implanted stooges masquerading as Republicans, kind of, while lining their pockets. A lot of people need to go to jail. But with our supreme court not even willing to defend the rule of law because they are Spineless Toads, I don’t think we stand much of a chance from here on out. we need Trump back now!!!!!!!

Trump holds the Bush family responsible, and rightly so, for the entire American debacle in the Middle East, of which Afghanistan is a part.  Our post-9/11 debacle, Trump notes, has killed millions of people, and destroyed the Middle East , for no good purpose. 

Trump also pushed back on Sean Hannity’s efforts to script him against Russia and China, in narratives presently being pushed by the war party. 

Something else, very important, is that no one is talking about is drugs, heroin, and amphetamines. Afghanistan supplies all of Europe and much of Asia with drugs. It has done so for centuries. It is also central for the British Great Game in Eurasia. Just look at a map. As significantly, it is rich in unmined critical resources. Internally, the country is a bunch of corrupt war lords recruited and bribed by the intelligence agencies of various countries sitting on top of the population.

Our presence was the grandest delusion. This defeat must be used to go after Biden, the Cheneys, and all that imperial Washington imagines itself to be.

I would like to see AMAC withdraw from the war party by admitting we have followed a lie in colluding with this grandest delusion: that George Bush’s Middle East attack was good and necessary.

Yes the Taliban knew Trump was a man of his word, but I think Biden brokered this turnover with the CCP and the Taliban. Lara Logans interview with Carlson Tucker made way more sense.

Brainless clueless Joe just keeps on making poor decisions. He is on the way to turning our great country into a third world country. He is only a few months into a four year term and has managed to undo all of the great things Donald Trump did. We were extremely safe under 45 and now we are vulnerable. What’s next? He and all of his administration need to go. We must pray for the safety of all the innocent in Afghanistan.

Biden has not the smallest particle of brains compared to President Trump! Not a bit!
Biden is just like the looser Hillary Clinton and Obama, none of them have the smallest fraction of intellectual knowledge to be running OUR Country!
We need a Republican like Cruz or DeSantis to take over in the event Trump doesn’t.

Sippy Cup joe, the most popular elected official for President of the United States with a record 81 million certified and utterly valid votes cast his way. Is there any American with an IQ above 72 who actually believes that? 5 decades of incompetence, corruption, utter lies and deflection of blame. And this is the best democrats have to offer Americans? Can you imagine how bad that thing waiting in the wings will be if Sippy Cup is their best? Sure, she has corruption on a state level down pat and useless, oppressive ideology down to a science…she’s from California. What fresh hell will we have to endure when Nazi Pelosi, Schuckster Schumer and the Anti-America Squad are behind the laughing gal? Can you imagine the damage not only domestically but in the foreign arena that combination will do? Everything Americans have served, fought for, bled and died for will be destroyed by this disgraceful group of democrats.

If you voted for him you too are an idiot!!

This weak kneed government leech has to be put in his place along with all of the other financial free loaders. They have no concerns for anyone who isn’t fattening their personal fortune at our expense. Unless we elect someone with a desire to put America first, like President Trump did, we will continue on a path to our demise. God help the United States of America and its loyal law abiding citizens.

Two comments – 1) for never having been in the military, President Trump was a darn good Commander in Chief and 2) all of you commenters suggesting impeachment of Biden or requesting his resignation, do you honestly believe anyone in the line of succession would be better? I fear they would be far worse, especially the first two!

I saw on the news today that Biden has only met with two world leaders regarding the mess in Afghanistan.
Sad to say, I was right about who has been pulling Puppet Biden’s strings. It seems Trudeau of Canada met with Hillary Clinton instead of Biden regarding the Afghanistan mess.

Biden can’t get permission to use any ordinance from his handlers even if he had a clue and so desired. Doing so would strip tens of millions of dollars away from the frivolous spending spree the dems and rinos are currently engaged in.

Great article. I agree with RJ. Biden is not Pro American. He sold out a long time ago to China & Russia and whoever else sent him a check. The Taliban can spot weakness and Biden is full of weakness. Perhaps Joe should have tasked Harris with this project as well-she has no clue either! As an old Vet, I do not know how they left our enemies all our equipment and in tact forts. Where was General Milli, out preaching white rage I bet? President Trump had a viable plan with severe penalties if violated by the Taliban , and they knew it. The only thing worse than Uncle Joe moving mighty slow at the White House is if he is 25’d and Harris gets in, Pelosi moves to number 2. I think both are as incompetent as Joe. Who the heck voted for these idiots? We need to clean our government of the traitorous Progressive Socialist Democrats who do not have the best interest at hear for our Great Country, Constitution and American citizens.

With regards to bidens speech, I was disappointed that the theme music from Looney Tunes was not played prior to the speech and the banner That’s All Folks was not shown at the end. This guy has no clue to world events and military operations. He’s an embarrassment to our country,,,,and really an embarrassment to the entire world.

Democrats are the epitome of appeasement and lawlessness. They allow violent protests that injure and destroy, resulting in deaths and increasing taxes to cover the damages. They make excuses for bad behavior. No one is accountable or responsible. Look at the democratic run cities across the U.S. They look out for the wicked while punishing the obedient. They point the finger and accuse others for their mistakes, as long as they are white and/or Republican. How they handled Afghanistan should not be a surprise to anyone. Is the exact opposite of Trump in being effective and protecting America. He is totally incompetent and unqualified for the job, but of course he knows this and those that orchestrated this whole scheme are bigger and more powerful that we ever imagined. It gets scarier by the day.

As with the Obama Administration, the Taliban and other Islamic terror groups know they have nothing to fear from the Biden Group of Incompetents and may even be enabled in their endeavors to increase their foot print in critical Middle East territories. One of Obama’s primary objectives was to legitimize the status of terrorist sponsor states on the global stage and to pave the way for future political acolytes such as Biden to build upon that foundation. Obama did kill Bin Laden, but that was because he was expendable and his assassination would enhance Obama’s street cred at home and provide some degree of cover for his true allegiance and agenda.
Terrorist states truly respected and feared President Trump and wisely laid low during his tenure in office…….
