What choice does the stupid SOB have?
In other news...
Blinken happy with purchase of Brooklyn Bridge.
Blincken belongs in the graduate student lounge. He is no wartime consigliere.
I thought Joe said he doesn’t trust the taliban.
He traveled all the way to Afghanistan for that? The Taliban Chief “promised” Blinken cooperation while having his fingers crossed behind his back.

Tony is another ballchinian.
Quisling is no longer the standard for Treason.
I’ve just about HAD it with anyone in government named Anthony or Tony.
Back in 1938, Neville Chamberlain did not have himself as an example of appeasement to reference as something to be avoided. Today's Liberals have no such excuse.
send the worthless slime over to sit on one of the 6 planes they refuse to let leave then if he’s such a tallyban believer.
Did those 6 planes ever take off?
I am sure our illustrious Secretary of State is patiently waiting for them to do so.
“We will hold them to that”
With what? Threat of retaliation? Witholding tribute cash? Not telling them where the keys are to the MRAPs?
The angry inch speaks. And the bearded tuff guys laugh.
How many jihadists booted off Americans to get free rides to the US?
Blinken: They all seem so sincere and, frankly, nice. One talked about taking care of his old mom and working his way through terrorist bomb school. In short, I trust them all.
I’m surprised he wasn’t waving a piece of paper declaring “peace in our time”.
