Meanwhile, Biden’ has already called a lid and head to Wilmington for his “vacation” — vacation from what? he doesn’t work past noon most days — as Kabul falls.
Four more provincial capitals fell yesterday, bringing the total of provincial capitals under Taliban control to 17. 17 of the 34 capitals. Half.
And they control two-thirds of the country as far as physical acreage.
The Taliban completed their sweep of the country’s south on Friday as they took four more provincial capitals in a lightning offensive that brought them closer to Kabul, just weeks before the U.S. is set to officially end its two-decade war.
In just the last 24 hours, the country’s second-and third-largest cities — Herat in the west and Kandahar in the south– have fallen to the insurgents as has the capital of the southern province of Helmand, where American, British and NATO forces fought some of the bloodiest battles of the conflict.
The blitz through the Taliban’s southern heartland means the insurgents now hold half of Afghanistan’s 34 provincial capitals and control more than two-thirds of the country — weeks before the U.S. plans to withdraw its last troops. The Western-backed government in the capital, Kabul, still holds a smattering of provinces in the center and east, as well as the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.
They’re only fifty miles outside the capital.
U.S. officials say there is increasing concern that the Taliban could make a move on Kabul in a matter of days. The assessment of potentially encircling in 30 days appears to be obsolete now.

The spectacle of the superior and better-equipped Afghan forces fleeing in the face of the Taliban is reminiscent of how the Islamic State forces defeated the U.S.-trained Iraqi army.

And Kabul will fall within days — not the month Biden’s hacks had previously claimed.

But President Double Fudge has called it a lid and lammed it out to his safe space in Delaware, and the Administration refuses to schedule a briefing.
This is in asswipe biden. MHe alone is responsible for the car game that will ensue throughout the region. Then because he is weak and by default makes America weak in the eyes of our allies, communist China will take Taiwan.
Asswipe biden has it in him to surrender America to the CCP. They bought he and his family…

“Meanwhile, Biden’ has already called a lid and head to Wilmington for his “vacation” — vacation from what? he doesn’t work past noon most days — as Kabul falls.”
Hey, it’s tough work trying to stay awake during the day.
Democrats will not provide visitors logs from Wilmington. Because, you know… openness and transparency. Idiot Biden dashes from Camp David to Wilmington, back and forth, apparently whenever he wants to meet with people he doesn’t want anyone to know about.
Meanwhile, he sends soldiers back into harm’s way. What are the chances the Taliban would mass forces to try and wipe out a US brigade? What does the IC tell idiot Biden? Oh… they’re too busy tracking phantom “white supremacists” to determine what the risk threat to embassy personnel and our troops is.
I wonder if idiot Biden can turn Afghanistan into a bigger disaster than Obama turned Iraq into? We’ll see. However, we do know this; if you want a nation run competently, call a Republican. If you want an economy cratered, a collapse of foreign policy, open borders spreading epidemic and racial strife, call a Democrat and get them to use fraud to steal power.
UN Secretary-General: ‘Afghanistan Is Spinning Out of Control’
Joe Biden’s Vietnam, Then and Now
George W. Bush is right. Leaving Afghanistan like this is a mistake.
In July, when Joe Biden announced that he would be pulling the U.S. completely out of Afghanistan, he said: “The likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.”
Biden isn’t bright. He never has been. But is he stupid enough to have believed it unlikely that the Taliban would, in short order, overrun Afghanistan and seize control of the whole country?
The country is now under the complete control of the taliban. One major problem, both Russia and ccp have their eyes on the countries resources which are abundant and untapped. both countries hate and I mean real hate the taliban, but the pedophile joey and the gay muslin terrorist pres. loved them.
Only a matter of time.
Idiot Biden continues his streak of, as Gates says, being wrong on every foreign policy issue. This moron will create world chaos.
Joe’s not stopping at foreign policy issues. It’s hard to figure an issue he’s gotten right.
