After almost 20 years, America under the incompetent leadership of pResident Biden has humiliated our great country by his incredible bungling pull-out move of our military in Afghanistan and the death and mayhem that ensued.
Is this move similar to our pull-out in Vietnam?
Why or why not?
Thank you to our Afghanistan Veterans, you are very much appreciated!
This Vietnam vet offers some advice to you brave Afghanistan Veterans; Don't take it personal, your country, family and friends love and appreciate you for your service to America, even though the politicians and generals let you down. I'm still pissed after 50 years, try not to be like me.
I’m pissed that we abandoned allies!
I’m still trying to get a guy out of Kabul!
The girls are buying poison to suicide with so they won’t be raped.
Also the Taliban aren’t Afghani, it’s a different dialect, actually many different dialects. Foreign ones.
I am proud of all who serve.
Joe Biden ****** up. This is his legacy. I am proud of all who has served in Vietnam and Afghanistan. My words are not enough. But thank you for your service.
As an aside; have you guys noticed since the Afghanistan tragedy, FOX News has turned off comments on almost all their videos?!
Fox News is disgusting!
These are NOT failures of anyone who actually served in our wars.
It’s a failure of assholes who sat comfortably behind desks.
A nation should have interests before allies. Yesterday’s enemies are today’s allies and our “brothers” today are our enemies tomorrow.
Onboard USS PORT ROYAL (CG 73) inport Pearl Harbor 11SEP01. Admiral shifted his flag from base HQ to PORT ROYAL. We radiated SPY-1B radar inport with missile launchers up. We were ready to down Japanese airliners that could not be turned around because of fuel. Then off to Tora Bora and Operation ANACONDA. Then back to Operation ENDURING FREEDOM two more times.
Glad I’m retired because our woke Navy cannot even pilot a shipping lane or put out a fire. But all hands muster for Diversity Thursday. Are ships are just going to be Chinese missile sponges.
We’re leaving Americans, Canadians etc. The 100 ghurkas guarding the Canadian embassy were abandoned. People with visas had them terminated.
I wouldn’t know, because I don’t comment on websites other than this. I don’t ‘twat’ or ‘facespace’, either.
I gave up on Fox for a while, after Megyn Kelly’s ‘blood coming out of her wherever’ moment.
But I’ve found Fox to continue to have many outspoken and courageous people working for the Conservative cause. I may not agree with all of them all of the time, but I think it’s a useful and very informative outlet.
Twice in one lifetime I have witnessed our “elected” representatives misuse and then abuse out best and bravest patriots. I didn’t think that possible and yet .....
For all my young brothers and sisters know I love each and every one of you in a special way that those who weren’t there will never understand.
I am assuming you have a Vet’s ping list. Please feel free to add me.
“This Vietnam vet offers some advice to you brave Afghanistan Veterans; Don’t take it personal, your country, family and friends love and appreciate you for your service to America, even though the politicians and generals let you down. I’m still pissed after 50 years, try not to be like me”.
This VN vet couldn’t agree more and I feel the same way.
50 years ago this year for me, too.
C-1/501 101st Airborne Div.
We passed off a winnable conflict to South Vietnam's Military and Political system, and they would have eventually defeated the Commies IF the United States Congress would have continued to supply ammunition and fuel.
The one thing South Vietnam didn't have was money, they were broke and couldn't buy resupply.
The cowardly traitors that lost the Vietnam War were the US Politicians, American Media and the dope smoking Baby Boomer Hippies that run the Democrat Swamp now.
And the US Congress cut off the money to the RVN.
Be pissed off! You were not treated righteously nor were you treated well.
All these years later, the same despotic, tyrannical and socialist/communist hammer at our American door. Go figure.
You did your duty, you did your job, you served others before yourself and you did it well!
We, as a Country, either get our shiiete in one sock in short order, or as millions fear...America’s days are numbered.
The army is worried. They keep sending out emails about looking out for vets that might be struggling. What I heard from a current army employee.
Either their worried about mental health or pissed of vets. I will let you decide.
Yes, most of the comments on Fox News were off earlier this week, but since yesterday, many of the comments areas are open for business again. I’m not quite sure what was going on. Maybe some kind of ‘mistake’ or malfunction.
