Navy SEAL Reveals Plan to Fix Biden's Afghanistan Disaster, Goes Viral
Jocko Willink lays out steps he'd take if he were president in viral video - WATCH
A retired U.S. Navy SEAL has posted a video to social media in which he explains how he would resolve Democrat Joe Biden's mess in Afghanistan if he were president, with the post instantly going viral.
In a brief video Monday, Jocko Willink imagines he was the U.S. commander-in-chief during an address to the nation about the Afghanistan disaster.
He then lays out the steps that he would take to resolve the problem.
The Biden administration has been blasted from all sides for allowing the Taliban to seize control of Afghanistan, with many agreeing that the U.S. withdrawal could not have gone any worse.
During a news briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki grew visibly annoyed when she was asked about Americans "stranded" in the terrorist-controlled country.
Psaki claimed it is inaccurate to say they are stranded, despite thousands still being trapped there with no way to leave.
In response to the calamity, Willink appeared in the black-and-white video in a black t-shirt and close-cropped haircut.
He sounded firm and spoke in short bursts of declarative sentences.
He explained in the video caption that this is how he would address the situation to the world.
"If I were president, and I had put our country into the current situation in Afghanistan, I would tell America, our allies, our enemies, and the world, something like this…" the caption reads.
Speaking as if he were the president, Willink admitted that he made "critical errors" in underestimating the Taliban's capabilities.
He said the blame was on him alone.
He admitted that the Americans and Afghan allies were stranded, but said they "will not be for long."
He spent most of the speech proving the steps he would take to rectify the problem.
"In the next 48 hours, America will be in control of most major airports in Afghanistan," he said.
"Any resistance we meet from the Taliban or otherwise—when we seize these airports—will be destroyed completely and without mercy."
He said gaining control of these airports will allow U.S. forces to conduct swift rescue missions throughout the country.
"Any person who interferes with these operations will be killed," he said.
He also said he would order troops to either retake or destroy weapons and equipment left behind by fleeing Afghan troops.
"Any person utilizing, guarding, or located in close proximity to these weapons or equipment will be killed," he said.
He said once the Americans and Afghans are extracted and the weapons either retrieved or destroyed, the U.S. will leave the country.
But he vowed to keep a close eye on possible terrorist activities or human rights violations by employing surveillance technology.
He also said the U.S. will support freedom fighters in the country through airstrikes and with Special Forces units.
He said the U.S. will continue the support until the enemy is no longer a threat to America or "the good people of Afghanistan."
