They Deserved Better. We Deserve Better.

I posted this earlier on FB. A good friend suggested I post it here as well. This is how this military mom feels right now. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about what is going to happen next, not just in Afghanistan but here as well. Now to the FB post.

Like many of you here, I am a military mother. I come from a family that gladly stepped up and served this country, going back to the earliest days of the Republic. But tonight I am not only hurting for those 12 families who are learning of the deaths of their loved ones serving in Kabul but I am angry. I am angrier than I have been in a very long time and that anger is aimed at the man sitting in the Oval Office.

How dare he stand there and say he knows what those families feel tonight because he lost a son to cancer! I feel for his loss but it is not the same thing. HE got to say goodbye to his son. HE had time to prepare for the inevitable. Those 12 families did not. In fact, those 12 families depended on him, on his Joint Chiefs of Staff, on the command structure to put together a plan that would safely get not only our military personnel and citizens home from Afghanistan but also those who risked their lives working with us.

He failed those 11 fallen Marines and the fallen Navy corpsman. He failed their families. He failed those who relied on our country to keep our word. Now he says he will hunt down those responsible. I’m sure they are quaking in their boots–not. NOTHING POTUS has done since taking office shows any backbone, any determination to be an effective Commander-in-Chief.

My thoughts and prayers are with those 12 families tonight as well as with the families of those injured and those still left in Afghanistan. God protect them and watch over them.

And God help this country.

  1. Amen!

    Beau Biden is probably looking down at him with disgust. Also, Senile Joe has been lying from day one about the Taliban and ISIS. He and his various mouthpieces have been saying the two organizations were rivals and hated each other; if so why did the Taliban release the ISIS members from prison instead of executing them? Why is it that Senile Joe said the Taliban are “helping” the evacuation when Americans and Afghans who helped us are blocked at Taliban checkpoints but ISIS homicide bombers are allowed through the checkpoints? Where was Joe’s minder Kamela “The Bactrian” Harris” when he was lying on national television today about these United States making ISIS pay for the murders? The Biden/Harris/Pelosi/Schumer regime have been urging ISIS to attack out troops and Afghan refugees for several days now, so I believe they are giddy with delight it finally happened

  2. God help this Country in the hands of that man. He and his handlers didn’t just botch the evacuation– they contributed to a disaster in the making. I’m so sorry for those 12 families– I’m also cringing when I think about the next few weeks of what the Taliban and Isis are going to do to the people left there including many Americans.

    1. Cyn, our service IS worthy to the general Amaerican people; it is unworthy to the International Socialists like Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, and rest of their party. They and their ilk revere Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, etc. and despise Wasington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, and Madison along with anyone who has served in the military.

    2. Cyn, please don’t question your service or your cause. Both were worthy and are something myself and so many others thank you for. You and your fellow vets are NOT responsible for what POTUS et al have done. Your job now is to hold strong and hold the memory of your brothers and sisters-in-arms close.

      I know you may wave this off, but thank you. Thank you for loving this country enough to serve. Thank you for being brave enough, strong enough to stand up and serve.
