While Joey “Demento” Biden fights explosions he set off in Afghanistan, we get breaking news of additional bombs outside the Kabul airport.
Adding to the horrors and uncertainties at the Kabul Airport, now suicide bombers target Afghans alongside people from around the world who now watch as their deepest fears are consummated.
As Yahoo reported,
An explosion went off on Thursday outside the Kabul airport, where thousands of people have gathered to try to flee the country on Western airlift since the Taliban seized power earlier this month. The Pentagon confirmed the blast, with no immediate word on casualties.
Western nations had warned of a possible attack on Kabul’s airport in the waning days of the massive evacuation efforts.
Meanwhile, Biden encourages Americans to “get to the airport.” The implication by Biden is that if trapped, Americans could just get to the airport. Then, they would be safe. But as we’ve learned, Biden can’t provide safety at all. Showing one’s passport can get you killed in Afghanistan.
Worse, once you get to the airport you either (1) don’t get in and must fight your way back to safety, or (2) you could be bombed.
Contrary to Biden’s advice, several countries urged people to avoid the airport. These countries were aware of the threat of a suicide bombing. Still, people ignore the warnings because they desperately want to leave.
The threat came to fruition, as a suicide bomber attacked the airport. I suggest that this will be the first of many.
Over the last week, the airport has been the scene of some of the most searing images of the chaotic end of America’s longest war. The Taliban’s takeover added to the chaos, and now refugees face the reality of suicide bombers.
America’s “allies” were caught flat-footed by Biden’s incompetence, and now their citizens face the same dangers. And while the Taliban claims they will allow safe passage for these people, don’t bet on it.
Further, the Taliban can’t control what Al Qaeda and other terror groups decide to do.
British Armed Forces Minister James Heappey told the BBC early Thursday there was ”very, very credible reporting of an imminent attack” at the airport, possibly within “hours.” Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo said his country had received information from the U.S. and other countries about the “threat of suicide attacks on the mass of people.”
Good intelligence, because the attacks happened. Think anybody wants to make their way to the airport now?
The acting U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Ross Wilson has a real job on his hands. I’m not sure who he pissed off for this job, but understand somebody left it. Because Wilson is “acting” U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan.
Wilson refused to answer ABC News on what comes next. Who could blame him, as he knows all he can report or speculate on is bad news.
France supposedly has suspended all attempts to evacuate. Further, I suspect other countries want the dust to settle before putting other citizens in harm’s way. And this plays into the Taliban’s hands.
Because now the Taliban can offer “protection” for these refugees without having them be perceived as hostages.
I suggest Team Demento prepare to dig in. This situation will be around for a while; months at least, years at worse.
Stay tuned. We will continue to update you as we learn new information.
