If like me, you have been watching the disaster unfolding in Kabul, you are amazed at the incompetence and lack of devotion to duty that is currently on display in the hierarchy of the American military. Under Joe Biden's watch, with the willing assistance of Lloyd Austin and Mike Milley, the greatest military in the world is reduced to a laughing-stock, mocked by our enemies.
The disgraced American general, David Petraeus calls it a Dunkirk moment, but even that is a pale comparison. At Dunkirk, the British military managed to extricate 338,226 troops in the 10 days between May 26 - June 4, 1940. And, they did it all with 1930s technology.
Nor is it a Saigon moment. As Mark Steyn so eloquently writes:
It is not just that General Milley and the Joint Buffoons of Staff cannot plan; they cannot execute. Compare the 2,500 Americans evacuated from Kabul over this last week to the 7,000 Americans and allies choppered out of Saigon in just nineteen hours. Can Milley do anything in nineteen hours other than call his tailor and order up his next row of ribbonry?
That is a good question. Our beribboned generals did not lose Bagram, they gave it away and now are reduced to just one runway while our enemy controls access to the airport and allows flights to leave. The Taliban can shut down that one runway whenever they are ready, they are just not ready yet. They are having too much fun raping, looting, and murdering.
I am trying to recall a time in which the US military was so thoroughly humiliated, and it may be the Greasy Grass Fight.
