Afghanistan: Majority of Americans blame Biden poll shows

A majority of Americans disapproved of US President Biden’s handling of the calamitous and ill-planned military retreat in Afghanistan. Cacophony meanwhile reigns in Washington as politicians, including Biden, try to find someone to blame for the disaster.

    According to a new poll, conducted by The Trafalgar Group, some 69 percent of Americans disapproved of how Biden handled the US troop withdrawal. Overall, only 23 percent approved, but almost 40 percent of Democrats polled thought he had done a good job.

    Some 89 percent of Republicans on the other hand, said they disapproved of how Biden had handled the US retreat, with only 7 percent saying they approve.

    The Taliban humiliated the American leader by easily taking over the capital of the country, Kabul, as the US troop withdrawal neared its end. Scenes of chaos erupted at the airport in Kabul as many tried to flee. President Biden had previously said that the Taliban would never achieve this. In the wake of this huge failure, Biden’s speech “was full of finger-pointing and blame,” said CNN’s Jake Tapper.

    Instead of paying attention to Afghanistan, the Biden administration has been focusing on declaring anyone who opposes Covid vaccines, masks, social distancing or lockdowns a “potential terror threat”, ignoring the freedom of choice. Dubbed a “National Terrorism Alert” by NBC News, the warning also insisted that anyone who questions the veracity of the 2020 election could also be a terrorist.

    But ironically the Biden administration “likely created a newly-weaponized Islamic Caliphate in Afghanistan after abandoning troves of military equipment, vehicles, and weapons amid its desertion of the US embassy in Kabul,” noted Infowars. The Associated Press also concluded that “the ultimate beneficiary of the American investment turned out to be the Taliban. They grabbed not only political power but also US-supplied firepower — guns, ammunition, helicopters and more”.

    The Taliban now find themselves flush with American-supplied materiel, without having to pay for any of it.
