    We know Biden has never been the sharpest tack in the box. When it comes to action which will aid America and Americans in foreign lands, our political class has totally failed us, as Grenell says. Our elected officials didn’t listen to those in the past who were letting us know the various scenarios possible. Those who did or might have listened, ended up out of the picture–think Petraeus–and unable to gain any traction in the “advisory” world.

    Most folks who knew what the ROE was in Afghanistan knew we could never win a war that way. I mean, how insipid is it to tell your troops that they can’t shoot someone who has shot at your convoy if the shooter throws down his rifle or whatever firearm. You just have to pass him by, let him run away. Can you imagine General Patton giving such an order?

    There are so many “what ifs” in every war involving American troops since World War 2. It’s mind-boggling.

    Here’s one of Michael Yon’s latest dispatches – Aug 21, 2021 at 3:24pm
    Danger Grows in Kabul — with every passing hour

    One of the quick lessons of this sort of war: sit still long enough, you will get hit. OODA clock is running. Taliban are smart fighters and realize if they close one runway they have closed us off, Alamo style. We must re-open Bagram and others such as Kandahar.

    The President is down for the count. His brain is gone. There is no time to act or do something rational with him. Thousands of Americans’ lives depend on a riddled brain.

    Americans are spread all over Afghanistan. Big country. Few roads. A friend’s family drove from Herat to Kabul last week and saw many bodies. I’ve driven most of these roads. Thin, unguarded, long. Villages everywhere. Need gas. There simply is no way to travel safely— especially with family — unless you are expert at going camel style. And by that time, this game will be over and you will simply be in the Taliban equivalent of North Korea.

    As days click by, Taliban will develop some plan to attack the airport. That’s how they roll. Likely some sort of breaching attack using vehicle bombs. If they can get onto airfield and destroy aircraft like they did in Camp Bastion, this will slow us down more. I published about that attack: https://www.michaelyon-online.com/afghanistan-when-the-moon-sets-watch-out.htm

    The hunker in place order is a die in place order unless we send in Rangers, 82nd, Marines, etc. We need tens of thousands of troops. Must open numerous airfields to get out Americans. #NeoNow
