Say, Joe Biden, Ended Any Forever Wars Lately? You Did? Tell Us All About It!

Come watch your WonkTV!

President Joe Biden is set to address America about the end of the US military presence in Afghanistan, which became official as the last US C-17 transport plane took off from Kabul's airport yesterday, just before midnight local time. As Lawrence O'Donnell noted last night on MSNBC, it's a pretty unusual situation for a president to give a speech after an unsuccessful military conflict. O'Donnell noted that he'd checked with NBC News archivists, who confirmed that in 1975, following the fall of Saigon, Gerald Ford didn't so much as hold a press conference, let alone a speech to the nation.

Warmonger Stunts & Bold New Afghanistan Strategy​: More War!

It's your Sunday show rundown!

Ever since President Joe Biden decided to follow through with the end of the war in Afghanistan, one already negotiated by the previous administration, we've had no shortage of armchair quarterbacks criticizing the decision. As the August 31 deadline approaches, it seems all the warhawks came to the Sunday shows to either request for forever war or criticize our exit strategy.

On CBS' "Face The Nation," political remora Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina decided to honor his last two long-term relationships with Donald Trump & the late John McCain. For McCain, Graham advocated for John's true love (foreign wars) when asked what he would have done differently than Biden.

GRAHAM: Well, number one, I wouldn't have withdrawn. I would have kept the counterterrorism forces on the ground. [...]

Graham channelled his war boner so much, it removed his ability to coherently spit out the soundbite he practiced all night.

GRAHAM: But let me tell you where I think we're at. This is a cata...catamalystic...a cat... just a fair beyond my ability to describe it.

Graham then decided to give some very late advice.

GRAHAM: [...] First thing we need to do is not recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan.

That's some sage advice you maybe should have given Trump and Mike Pompeo when they made this deal with the Taliban, Lindsey.

Mike Pompeo Wants YOU To ... Look Over There!

He's never gonna be president.

Mike Pompeo is what happens when you have the warmongering of Henry Kissinger with one-fourth the evil competence. But his heat-seeking to be the next Trump-wannabe in 2024 might be derailed by his monstrous incompetence.

As detailed by William Saletan of Slate, Pompeo has been trying to see if he can lie like a common Nikki Haley about how safe Afghanistan was when he was the one negotiating with the Taliban despite the disastrous consequences we are currently experiencing.

Appearing on Maria Bartiromo's Fox News show "Sunday Morning Futures," Mike Pompeo lied about it on Sunday for the second week in a row.

Pompeo played all his hits:

There were the dogwhistles:

POMPEO: [Biden] is more focused on spending three and half trillion dollars on creating 'diversity' inside of our military ...

He waxed about the marvelous deal he made:

POMPEO: Remember this Maria: From the time we began our "peace and reconciliation," our conversations ... from the time we signed that deal in February 2020 ... not a single American was attacked by the Taliban in a serious way and there wasn't a single American killed.

Yeah, well, once we told them we'd leave immediately if they just stopped attacking us (mostly), we guess they were OK with that.

Pompeo also attempted to say our allies don't trust us, as if to imply they'd like it better if Trump was still the sheriff. You bet.

POMPEO: You need [...] only to go to the British Parliament or listen to Macron or Merkel. [...] All of them are concerned that they no longer can trust America as a partner and ally.

Of course, one only has to look at news articles from Trump's four years to see how our allies actually felt while Trump was being pen-pals with Kim Jong-un or defending Vladimir Putin or defending Prince Bonesaw of Saudi Arabia. Pompeo's sudden concern for Emmanuel Macron or Angela Merkel or the British Parliament might not be authentic!

But as, MSNBC's Medhi Hansan tweeted, the receipts are all archived and wont be easily forgotten:

Lindsey Graham Finally Finds A President He Wants To Impeach

And Josh Hawley and Marsha Blackburn want in too.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, continuing his audition to be the GOP's official national weathervane, called for President Joe Biden to be impeached over the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, claiming that no other president in history has ever done anything so "dishonorable," and that leaving the Forever War would leave the US open to another "9/11." Graham said nothing at all about his favorite president ever, who brought us a 1/6 and a COVID-19.

Graham made the remarks in a Tuesday interview on NewsMax; that was two days before yesterday's horrific suicide bombings at the Kabul airport, which prompted other GOP senators to call for Biden to resign, be impeached, or just magically be replaced with Donald Trump, who would be so much better at this.
