One American Among 18 Arrested by Taliban in Afghanistan

( – During his time in the White House, President Biden has presented himself as incompetent in every arena of political discourse, on both the national and international stages. Foreign rivals of the United States are blatantly aware of this and act in an aggressive and provocative manner. Russia invaded Ukraine almost two years ago, and remains engulfed in the bloody conflict, North Korea remains committed to performing threatening military actions in the far east, demonstrating new military technologies in flaunty Pyongyang parades. It also hurled dummy simulated nuclear missiles against its neighbor across the 38th parallel, South Korea. China, most worryingly, repeatedly asserts claims over the nation of Taiwan. Beijing appears poised to take action against the island nation at any day, and in recent weeks the country sent 103 military jets over the island in a clearly threatening maneuver.

What was perhaps Bidens biggest blunder while in office also occurred in international political affairs. In the summer of 2021, he organized the botched American withdrawal from Afghanistan. Several U.S. servicemembers were killed in the events that transpired, and thousands of Afghanis who had remained loyal to the U.S. government were left behind, along with hundreds of American citizens. Militarily, America even gave up billions of dollars in military equipment and abandoned strategic airfields which were vital to implementing global defensive operations against the threatening Chinese government. 13 American servicemembers died, and the president, appearing dazed and incoherent as usual, callously stared at his watch when their bodies were returned home in a ceremony.

The withdrawal resulted in the Taliban swiftly returning to power in the nation. In recent weeks, they raided the office of a Swiss nonprofit group in the country and took 18 individuals’ hostage. One of these people was an American citizen. The International Assistance Mission, a Christian group that has operated in the country for 57 years, was the target of the raid by the Islamic fanatics.
