14 Marines and 1 Navy medic were just killed at the Kabul airport by bombs. I thought more troops should be sent in before. Now I definitely think more troops to be sent in, to secure the Kabul airport, to disperse terrorists from around the airport, to retake the Baghram airport, to seek out the Americans and Afghan allies to get them out of Afghanistan, to retake Afghanistan and eliminate the terrorists to the greatest extent possible, without restraint of political correctness.

Yes, they should be sent in. Do not leave any Americans behind. And fight them till the enemy is no more!

We cannot go in as mice. Be ready to fight and So no gets killed. Leave the wokeness behind. We did it in WWII; we can do it again. To much politics has gone into this endeavor. Fight to win. We can do it. They are the enemy. We can win!!!!!! Bring ALL our people home. Enough is enough. God bless our Military!

No. The giant, horrific mistake has already been made. The strategic advantage lost. More troops now would be slaughtered and no allies. After the deadline, removals will have to be

clandestine. And, we better excell at the job.! We've lost the stability we established (however fragile) and there's no getting it back . Lots of room for blame all the way around, Circumstances and alliances are shifing and changing faster than we can even. imagine.

There's no stopping a world that becomes more complicated with every breath. Pray our remaining troops leave unscathed.

Yes, more US troops should be sent in to get out the remaining Americans, Christians and our Afghanistan allies who helped our soldiers during the last 20 years. We promised these Afghan allies we would help them leave Afghanistan and America MUST keep its word. Otherwise, we will lose our allies and no country will EVER trust America again.

Our military should also retake Bagram Air Field, which is very strategically important and which will help us tremendously to get people out. Biden gave up Bagram Air Field in a very bad political decision, and America needs to take it back.

Several generals told President Biden it would be a strategic disaster to give up Bagram, and Joe Biden ignored their advice. Then, when asked about this decision in a public Press Conference, Joe Biden lied and threw his generals right under the bus, saying it was the generals’ decision to give up Bagram Air Field. No, Joe Biden, it was YOUR decision.

This is the character of the man who is now our President, someone who will LIE and shift the blame to everyone but himself. I will add that when his commanding generals knew how extremely dangerous and reckless Joe Biden’s political decisions were going to be for Afghanistan AND for America, they should have RESIGNED rather than “go along just to get along” with their President and their precious military careers.

Now we have 13 Dead US servicemen, many fleeing Afghanis Dead, and many other US soldiers who are seriously wounded. Joe Biden has their blood on his hands for his stupid, arrogant political decision to pull all US troops out by August 31st, so he could brag to everyone that they were all out before 9/11.

Biden has stubbornly refused to change military course and has given more and more of our military power over to a terrorist organization, the Taliban.

America can now expect to see Americans taken as hostages and the Afghanis who helped us being tortured and murdered.

If Bagram is retaken by our US military, we need to continue to HOLD Bagram after the evacuation is over, to strategically prevent another 9/11 terrorist attack on our country.

If we don’t keep a small contingency of peacekeeping military forces in Afghanistan, America will be attacked again. The Taliban now has $82 billion dollars worth of our best US military equipment. Thank you, President Biden.

To make matters even worse, the White House has given much of the responsibility for this huge evacuation NOT to the US Military, but to the US STATE Department, which has proven to be completely INCOMPETENT in this mission. Americans in Afghanistan have been utterly failed and left behind by their own incompetent government. The level of incompetence and stupidity at Biden’s State Department is truly mind-boggling.

Glenn Beck has an organization called The Nazarene Fund, which was organized to rescue Christians and others from dangerous situations in the Middle East. The Nazarene Fund has been using its OWN private airplanes to rescue Christians in Afghanistan and take them to safety in neighboring countries in the Middle East. These are good countries that have agreed to help and take these Christians.

Glen Beck recently reported that the WOKE leaders in Biden’s STATE Department have been obstructing his rescue mission every step of the way, and are now NOT allowing

the Nazarene Fund’s rescue planes full of Christians and others to land in safe neighboring Mid-East countries. What is the State Department’s justification for this? Do the liberals in Biden’s State Department really hate Christians that much?

Glenn Beck recently went on the Tucker Carlson show and described what our US State Department is doing to stop their rescue mission as “Pure Evil.”

Glenn Beck has been pleading with Senator Tom Cotton to see if Cotton can intervene and stop the State Department’s insane obstruction of their mission to rescue Christians and others out of Afghanistan.

Many of these Christians were formerly Muslims who converted, and if the Taliban finds them, they will burn these Christian men, women and children alive.

Obviously, President Biden is unfit to run this country and he should step down. He is directly responsible for the deaths and maiming of our brave young soldiers. Now Americans left behind in Afghanistan will be held as hostages. His stubborn, arrogant decisions have put America in grave danger.

If Biden doesn’t step down, he should be impeached as soon as possible.

Remember, the Democrats impeached President Trump for a TELEPHONE CALL inquiring about corruption and influence peddling.

A word of caution to the previous submission author. NFRW has given us an avenue for comment. Some restraint regarding length of narrative is needed in order to keep NFRW from putting a limit on word length. We all need to try to put our point across but one good sized paragraph will often do the job.

Let's all try to keep comments within reasonable bounds. Thoughts expressed more succinctly are usually more successful.

Glenn Beck has put out an urgent request to all Americans. Please call your State and Federal Senators and ask them to make contact with our US State Department. Ask your Senators to put pressure on our US State Department to allow Christians to fly to safety out of Afghanistan. Neighboring countries in the Middle East want to help and are willing to take these Christians into their countries. But our US State Department is NOT allowing Glenn Beck’s chartered planes (with the Nazarene Project) to land in these countries that will take fleeing Christians. Our State Department is blocking these efforts to rescue Christians.As Glenn Beck stated, this is “Pure Evil” on the part of our US State Department. If the Taliban finds these Christians, they will be slaughtered.

Let us do our part to help these Christians by contacting our Senators. Thank you!

Yes, As horrible as war is it is much worse to leave American Citizens in a country that hates us and hates women and will definitely make every effort to hunt them down and brutally beat them and even kill them. The current administration do not care if they are left and not safely taken from harms way.

I have very mixed emotions about sending more troops to Afghanistan. If we do not increase the troops, I fear that the loss of life will be tremendous, with Americans and those who helped us being held as hostages or being killed in horrendous ways.

On the other hand, if we do increase the number of troops without sending a huge number and with no secure base of operations, I fear they would face almost certain death at the hands of the enemy.

Biden's poor decision has left us in a no-win situation.

As long as there are American citizens in Afghanistan who wish to leave we must evacuate them. If the Biden Administration would quit tying the hands of our special forces, they could do the job they were trained for. Now that the Taliban are armed with our deserted weapons and I have heard piles of money they will be a fearsome fighting force. It was a terrible mistake not to keep and use Bagram Air base for evacuating Americans.

Unfortunately, I believe that Biden and Democrats are using this as a means to push more immigrants into the U.S. They are settling these unvetted imigrants, not in their posh neighborhoods, but in small towns across America. NAFTA and the Obama years had already destroyed these small towns (I know because I come from a small town in West Texas); they are trying to gain more votes for Democrats. This was not an accident or the result of a President with dementia. This is a full scale assault on the United States and its way of life. There is no remorse from these people; no regrets that there may be U.S. citizens left behind; no regrets about our soldiers who have and will be killed or injured; no regrets about being responsible for the murder of many Afghans who were working with us. The destruction of Afghanistan and the resettling of Afghans (as well as terrorist) will not affect their lives and their sons/daughters are not in the military. That being said, I think we need to follow the Trump plan, go back in, clean up the mess and then leave per the Trump plan.

Although there have been many Republicans standing up to protest this travesty, I have not heard the Republican Party make a formal statement as to how wrong pulling out of Afghanistan in this manner has been. The Republicans in Congress should hold a press conference on the steps of the Capitol telling how wrong this has been.

I agree completely with Martha Hale. Well said.

However, don’t hold your breath for Republicans in Congress to stand up as a group and protest this Afghanistan mess created by Biden and his Administration.

Many of the Republicans in Congress are useless Swamp Creatures who only care about their own careers. Every one of the 19 Republican Senators who voted with the Democrats to support the disgusting PORK LADEN Green New Deal “Infrastructure Bill” that was only 10% about real Infrastructure should be voted out of office as soon as possible.

Why do you think the Republicans in Congress NEVER VOTE to do anything about the Fascist CANCEL tactics of Facebook and Twitter and Google, including Canceling President Trump. It’s because many of them are getting MONEY from these tech companies. These sorry Republicans are bought and paid for and they are part of the Swamp. They could care less about helping Americans and many of these Republicans Congressmen don’t like Donald Trump.

They need to be held accountable for their poor performances and Voted OUT.

How else will we get Americans and our Afghan allies out?

It is now August 30, and Americans and allies are still stuck in Afghanistan. President Biden relied on the Taliban to help facilitate our evacuation at 'checkpoints.' They turned away those with valid documents but let in Isis suicide bombers.

If we don't send troops today, the situation will only escalate with murders and hostage-taking. The time to act is now.

I thought maybe we could secretly send Special Forces to quietly get out remaining Americans and Afghan allies, but there are too many.

My feelings are torn in many directions regarding the military going back into this mess. They have no leadership from the White House, & what of some of the military big-wigs who seem to be dallying around with other matters in being 'woke' about whatever is the latest PC story of the hour? There is no easy answer. Biden blew it; Trump had a major, articulate plan. If he was still in charge, he would find a way to make it happen. Now our military members could be caught in the middle. May God guide us with a path to save our own citizens & keep our military safe, as well.

It's definitely a difficult situation because it might be risky for the next troops who'll be sent there but the government needs to think of the best way to save those who are left behind.
