Trump Calls for 'Unequivocal Military Force' Unless Taliban Returns American Weaponry
'Never in history has a withdrawal from war been handled so badly'
President Donald Trump has called for “unequivocal military force” against the Taliban terrorist group if they refuse to return the billions of dollars of taxpayer-funded weaponry left behind by the Biden administration.
Trump asserted that the U.S should “at least bomb the hell out of” the Taliban's equipment to prevent them from using it.
Trump said in a statement:
“Never in history has a withdrawal from war been handled so badly or incompetently as the Biden Administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan."
“In addition to the obvious, ALL EQUIPMENT should be demanded to be immediately returned to the United States, and that includes every penny of the $85 billion dollars in cost.
“If it is not handed back, we should either go in with unequivocal Military force and get it or at least bomb the hell out of it."
"Nobody ever thought such stupidity, as this feeble-brained withdrawal, was possible!” he added.
Neon Nettle reported last week that Biden's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan had left the Taliban with 75,000 vehicles, 600,000 weapons, and 208 airplanes/helicopters, according to watchdog group Open the Books.
CEO & founder of Open the Books, Adam Andrzejewski, said:
“We've made the Taliban into a major U.S. arms dealer for the next decade."
“They now control 75,000 military vehicles."
Even White House officials admitted they are at a loss as to where all the equipment has gone.
“We don’t have a complete picture, obviously, of where every article of defense materials has gone, but certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the Taliban,” Jake Sullivan earlier this month.
“And obviously, we don’t have a sense that they are going to readily hand it over to us at the airport.”
Last week, Trump said the Taliban was "under perfect control" during his presidency because he warned their leader that they'd be hit with the full force of the United States military if they stepped out of line.
Trump added the Taliban knew "they would have gotten blown away by F-18" fighter jets had they tried to take Kabul while Trump was in charge.
However, Trump says the Taliban's successful takeover is because they know Joe Biden is too weak to punish them.
"Before, they would've gotten blown away. (Now) zero resistance," Trump said as he called Biden's decision to take the US military out of Afghanistan "the dumbest move anybody has ever made perhaps in the history of our country, allowing this to happen."
"This country has never seen stupidity like this, and our country is really in trouble," Trump said.
