The emperor has no cloths or better still…. who is leading our nation?

August 16, 2021

More than a decade ago I wrote an article bemoaning the lack of respect that American travelers in foreign nations sometimes encounter. I compared it to the time when the Roman empire ruled the known world and any citizen of Rome would merely announce that he was a citizen of Rome and no one would dare do him harm.

For many decades after the first world war citizens of the United States were also treated with this same ‘hands off’ respect, because everyone knew if they were harmed no matter how inconsequential the full might of the US would come crashing down on them.

Over the years much of that respect has gone by the wayside and now Americans can be kidnapped or assaulted in nations even those supposedly friendly to the US.

Today however we are faced with actions that the government has taken that will alter the way the world views our nation from now on. Knowing that the Afghan military would collapse the minute the US military left President Biden ignored the consequences of this and called for the quick removal of all US forces… and now we see the results.

Lets not only focus on the thousands of Americans told by Biden’s state department to “shelter in place” and await news of when they can leave or Biden’s telling everyone there that there will be no American citizens first to board the airplanes, but the tens of thousands of women who for a brief time, under the umbrella of the US military were for the first time allowed to go to school, run business or even walk by themselves down any street in their city.

Thank you President Biden for

2,372 soldiers killed

trillion’s of

our tax dollars

wasted

and the horrible fate

awaiting millions

of

Afghan women

    impeach, oh, Im sorry, the a fair amount of those required to do that are as guilty, or more so,
    than he.

      John,
      I don’t see impeachment as being very helpful

      all we will get is the vice-president in hiding

      and if that fails

      even worse speaker of the house

    This is a devastating geopolitical earthquake as well as an incalculable human tragedy. We can always say pray but in this case it would seem we need to intervene personally in some way to save lives.

      Amen ‘pastorpete51’,

      prayer is definitely needed and as you have said physical intervention by a superior force to stop the senseless waste of humanity that no doubt will be comming.

        Maybe we should be praying about what we can do when the inevitable flood of refugees show up in our town. Will we ignore them, treat them like they had the plague or reach out to them in Jesus name?
