“America Is Back”? Back Where?

Taliban make propaganda video mocking US flag raising on Iwo Jima.

And you were saying that the Biden administration has foreign and domestic affairs well in hand? You were saying that you’re so relieved that Trump is no longer alienating our allies? You were saying that Americans and American interests are now safer overseas?

You were saying “America is back”? Back where? Back to where we were after the fall of Saigon in 1975, with a stream of refugees climbing a ladder, trying to get on the last helicopter flying off the embassy roof? Back to 1979, with US diplomats and Marines held for 444 days in Tehran, until Jimmy Carter left and Ronald Reagan took office?

Oh, is that what you meant by “America is Back”? You should have told us. Then we wouldn’t be looking at the mocking of the Iwo Jima flag raising, with at at least 10,000 American civilians left behind, a hostage crisis that makes Tehran look miniscule. Instead, we would be looking at the orderly evacuation of American civilians from Bagram Air Base by troops who would leave after the civilians were safe, while Taliban stood aside in the knowledge that if they tried anything, they would be bombed into oblivion by aircraft from Bagram. Instead, we would be looking at a President instead of a desiccated shell.

Yes, you should have told us.
