I watched President Biden's address to the nation about the debacle that is happening in Afghanistan. The human suffering and deaths that will take place in the coming weeks and months will be monstrous.
In his address, the Commander in Chief stated that the buck stops with him and he takes responsibility for this debacle and a debacle it is. He has been roundly criticized worldwide and in a bipartisan way. His public ratings now at an all time low.
But he also shifted the blame to others and certainly others are to blame. Be that as it may, there could have been a more orderly way to withdraw and prevent the complete collapse of the country into Taliban hands and almost overnight.
In his talk, there seem to be a callousness to life, the lives of those left behind that served the interests of the USA and will surely be hunted down and killed.
But this is also from a Catholic president who is so rabidly pro-choice that he has no regard for the current infanticide going on in our country that includes the most gruesome terrorist type of killing of the unborn infant in the partial birth abortion process.
His horrible immoral politics as it concerns life and death as well as human sexuality which is intimately connected with the Democrat Party is breathtaking and yet he considers himself a good practicing Catholic. Maybe in his mind, he is, but one has to wonder what is he thinking.
Is this more Ordinary Form Catholic nonsense?
God have mercy on him.
And this is from an Italian newspaper I'Espresso (google translation):
"In the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, Joe Biden made the impression of someone who does not know what he is doing"
The failure of US intelligence, the lack of relations with allies on the ground. And the influence of China on that area and on other possible scenarios. Speak Ian Bremmer, founder and president of the geopolitical consulting firm Eurasia Group

Ian Bremmer, founder and president of the geopolitical consulting firm Eurasia Group and the media start-up Gzeroworld, observes with disbelief the terrible execution of the American withdrawal from Afghanistan. A withdrawal that he has always considered inevitable.
“Everything has gone wrong. It was a catastrophic retreat. They thought it would take the Taliban two or three months to take over the country and it took two or three days. An incredible failure of American intelligence. Furthermore, the US did everything by itself, without asking the allies for anything and it was a real planning disaster. They did not prepare for the worst case scenario, which then came true. Because of this lack, many people have lost and will lose their lives. In terms of communication it went even worse, with Biden ruling out such a possibility just a month ago and making the impression of someone who doesn't know what he is doing ».
