Y'all blaming President Biden for the way Afghanistan is today but really you need to review what President Trump did there, like capitulating to Taliban demands to free Baladar in 2018, after 8yrs in custody.

An unmitigated fool. Blood on his hands.โ€ฆ
Trump has blood on his hands in so many different ways. Along with his henchmen, some of whom are more competent than him and need to be stopped before they succeed at picking up his mantle.

I agreed with many aspects of his foreign policy. But not on Afghanistan.
I literally chose my Twitter handle @FreedomFriesInc to reflect my belief in the #CollectiveSecurity doctrine of institutions like #NATO, #ASEAN, (& the late #ANZUS, killed by NZ in 1986.)

In 2003 France let us down. So we jokingly renamed french fries. It was an early "meme".

(1) Brief thread about the recent election in New Zealand.

The majority of NZ voters are more brainwashed than even I thought they were.

Having now seen one of the worst NZ election results for conservatives in my lifetime, I think we're at the point the USA was, pre-2016.
(2) Remember the USA before Trump entered politics in 2015? (Real) conservatives were despondent, but still fighting as best they could to limit the damage Democrats and the GOPe were doing to the country.

GOPe = Establishment Republicans.
(3) That's what NZ is like right now. So I hold on, protecting myself as best I can, economically & in terms of safety. The chance to put things right has been pushed further out.

Not necessarily for the full 3 years of a term, but probably.

The Labour-led govt is emboldened.
