Watching the breaking news coverage of Kabul [View all]

My rage is growing by the minute. We can blame Trump, et. al., all we want, but the true responsibility for this lies with George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and the massive military-industrial complex that has benefitted from this charnel house for the past two decades.

I’m seeing yard signs all over — September 11 We Won’t Forget. And we shouldn’t. But while we wave our flags and beat our chests we must also remember those who have made the aftermath of that day just as horrific.

I stand by President Biden and his decision to end this sorry clusterfuck.

Just had to get that off my chest.
