Yeah, but who's going to win the big fight tonight? Chances are, Trump will claim it was rigged and the loser actually won.

Still dabbling in the imaginary and humorless Dark Side of the Farce, rl?

Gregory

Three words missing from all of the 9/11 op-eds I've read today... SEAL Team Six.

George Rebane

rl 743am - Your non-sequitur comment did remind me of your cartoon in this morning's paper, and motivated the above update. Thank you for illustrating my point.

Paul Emery

George

When Bush got us into Afganistatan he started the spending of 2.3 Trillion dollars and thousands of Amerian lives and 20 years of occupation for what? Was Afghanistan worth it George and Can you share your ideas about what we should have done instead?

Barry Pruett

Why don’t you tell us what you would have done differently Paul? This should be interesting.

George Rebane

PaulE 1038am - Paul, you solicit another fruitless response from me. I have spent the last 14 years in these pages outlining precisely how the US should respond to developing geo-political threats and perpetrated attacks. (You apparently neither read nor, perhaps, understand these.) The details derive from Kennan's 1946 'Long Telegram' that outlined our country's perennial strategy for dealing with a world populated by bad actors with totalitarian ideologies. Your Democratic Party has now joined this throng, and has become America's existential endogenous enemy.

Gregory

How many times have we endured such attacks in the past 20 years, punch?

I recall at the time, the idea that there'd be no follow-on attacks in 20 years was unthinkable.

Bush didn't "get us into Afghanistan", Paul. OBL did.

Walt

Good job siding with the terrorists Emery. I guess you would prefer us fighting them here in our own streets than taking the fight to them.
They will hit us again the second they get the chance. And with your dear leader standing in as a Pres. that will surely happen. Notice no terror attacks while Trump was in office?

Now take a glance at what the British did today.

Paul wouldn’t have done anything differently. He is gonna ask questions and not answer any. Troll.

Roscoe

Not even a hat tip to our home grown terrorists who have nothing to do with Islam and most everything to do with right wing beliefs.

Typical one sided rant from the bald fossil on the hill that is based on transparently ignorant statements such as "During these observances someone will utter a brief reference to the ‘terrorists’ who flew those passenger airliners into buildings ".

I dare you to mention how many times the word terrorist was mentioned in the speeches from our current and previous presidents today. It is some figment of your imagination to claim that no one remembers and that no one talks about the terrorists.

Gregory

There is NO comparison whatsoever, "Roscoe". Not a terrorist action. Bison Boi didn't even bring a boxcutter.

Why not deposit that remark at Pellini's? He hasn't gotten out of bed yet.

You have the ANTIFA terrorists, A-HOLE. As home grown as they get.

George Rebane

Re Roscoe 1248pm - Here's Exhibit A to the mental acuity of leftists. He has not understood a word of my commentary nor of the citations therein. For him and his'n one terrorist is just like another, and there was nothing extraordinary or distinguishing about the 9/11 terrorists.

I would have kept the other airport open and some escaoe outposts for the few Americans that were stranded. There are still a few Americans out there but many actually want to stay. All in all only 13 casualties for such a huge evacuation is pretty amazing. Biden is an American hero that finally pulled up out of the biggest military embarassment in history, something Trum promised to do but never did-like everything else he promised. Biden is not responsible for the thousands of America deaths and trillions of dollars of debt caused by our misguided fiasco over there because he wasn't President at the time. Who do you find responsible for that Barry?

It's such a relief we're out of there. We were such chumps. The fake Afgan government had it planned to bail as soon as we pulled out and never intended to defend the country. Not a word from Amrullah Saleh who skipped the country with untold millions or billions of dollars. It was all a scam from the start and we were suckers. Isama Bin Laden succeeded beyond his wildest expectations in defeating this country.

George Rebane

re PaulE 419pm - People like Paul are naive beyond comprehension if they think that our 13 military killed are the only casualties of the precipitous surrender of Afghanistan to the Taliban. The killing has begun and has yet to be tallied. It will also include many of our military casualties who will wonder for what they will sacrifice life and limb.

None on the left remember what invited WW2 when the west's leading democracies believed the bullshit about 'the war to end all wars' and stripped down their militaries to troop levels exceeded by their countries' Boy Scouts.

Walt

Look at it this way Emery, us country boys really love this nation and will fight to keep it. Unlike you Lib hippie bastards the will play peacenik and surrender like the cowards you are. You don't get peace with kicking ass and taking names in war.

Barry Pruett

I’m not asking what you would have done about getting out of Afghanistan. I’m asking you what you would have done differently after 9/11?

Paul Emery

Well Barry for sure I wouldn't have spent nearly 3 Trillion dollars, had thousands of American casualties and stayed for 20 years. We went after Bin Laden. He promptly split the country and it took Obama to finally track him down years later. Do you think we should have stayed longer in Afghanistan than we did? George is of the mind that we should have American military indefinably in many places in the world which I oppose completely.

Barry Pruett

What would you have done differently?

Walt

Buzz off Emery, forget we are still at war in Korea?
Have an excuse there?

Walt

Remember Emery? The Revolutionary was "unjust" in your opinion too. Ever get tired of being wrong?

Paul Emery

It depends on what our goal was Barry. What started out as an action against Bin Laden ended up being a futile attempt at nation building in a country THAT basically didn't want us there just like Iraq.

Here's what Ron Paul, a Libertarian, had to say about the situation years ago.

"The question we're facing today is should we leave Afghanistan? I think the answer is very clear and it's not complicated, that of course we should. As soon as we can," he said. "This suggests that we can leave by the end of the year. If we don't, we'll be there for another decade would be my prediction."

On leaving, he said: "The large majority of the American people now say it's time to get out of Afghanistan. It's a fruitless venture, too much has been lost, the chance of winning, since we don't even know what we're going to win, doesn't exist."

Later in his speech, he spoke against the "perpetual occupation of a country."


"We can't change Afghanistan," he said. "Even if you could, you're not supposed to. You don't have the moral authority, you don't have the constitutional authority."

Walt

Sure Emery,, and Ron Paul is slapping Biden around on the Twitt shop. Good thing your a nobody in Nevada City and not defending the nation. We would be forced to speak Mandarin by now.

Nope,, you never get tired of being wrong.

Don Bessee

Talk about a lame ass dodge @901 , its about the how and you are not man enough to admit that the Trump plan was viable and they kept the lid on with just a couple thousand troops but with air power.

The POS's in creepy grampa joes admin are despicable cowards as well as liars like you. Cue measure W and i throw the measure S card.

Posted by: Paul Emery | 11 September 2021 at 08:34 PM

I recall Paul empty very upset when we pulled troops that were helping his female Kurdish fighters he donated his money to. Had quite the temper tantrum. Imagine Trump wanting to pull troops out of eastern Syria. No use to keep them there after he decimated ISIS and ISIL from Iraq and Syria in just four weeks.

Trump used real generals, not Biden’s TV generals or the one hundred generals that Obama fired.

Walt

To think our troops (including my Son) go into harms way to protect ungrateful cowards like Emery.
You picked a real fine day to be a war protester. The bastards had it coming Emery. You go to Afghanistan and do your apologies. They will walk you into a trench blindfolded and put a bullet in you head before the day is out.

Seems nobody is talking about Islamic terrorists. It is 9/11 after all. .
