The Old Blade Runner, the Magic

Patton: I need you, Donald. This is a bad one, the worst yet. I need the old Blade Runner, I need your magic.
Donald: I was quit when I come in here, Patton, I’m twice as quit now.
Patton: Stop right where you are. You know the score pal. If you’re not cop, you’re little people.
Donald: No choice, huh?
Patton: No choice pal.

    Anyone know the current situation in Kabul? 7 people killed show some kinetics but who shot whomst? Propaganda Hajis on Twitter say US shot civilians, then show non-US troops stacking bodies and say it’s US. It just tells me there’s a battle. I can tell the ROE is non-permissive and so the perimeter is a free for all as a result. Possibly 4000 US troops there; I also note UK, French and Polish troops. Probably others. I’d like to know anything of real activities.

    My assessment is that Biden has declared chaos and so chaos it will be. The military command authority for the MidEast has his hands tied. This parallels Benghazi in that regard. The slap-dash addition of civilian airliners (proposed) and a proposed widening of the battle are pretty much the White House gaslighting you. All this could’ve been done at the decisive moment, which was 2 or 3 days ago. Biden wants a loss, and doesn’t that remind you of how Obama acted?

    Next slide. There is one good thing. Before the Gulf War, and before we took Kandahar in 2001, the MidEast was the third rail. It’s not, anymore. It has shrunk strategically. What will Biden do if the balloon goes up in Taiwan? I think we all know the answer is: nothing decisive.

    On a dismal note, if the CENTCOM commander cannot fight to win this battle (and he could’ve) then this shows me that POTUS is not answering his phone. America, if the command authority in DC will not command the troops, you effectively haven’t got a military. They’ve gone into Kabul to throw the match.

    Salerno. Gen. Clark landed an amphibious invasion near the toe of the Italian boot (Sep/43) and we came this fucking close to being pushed back into the sea by the Germans. They dropped a secret weapon – an early radio guided bomb – onto a Brit cruiser and sank it in the middle of this battle. Nazi soldiers came close to cutting the invasion beachhead in 2 near the water’s edge. Mark Clark gave a warning order to a navy cruiser to beach itself and evacuate what soldiers it could if given the order to do so.
    The navy, the air force, and the army were locked elbows, wading into a barroom fight. Clark went ashore personally to fight the battalions himself. he landed 82nd Airborne paratroopers among the Allied troops on the beach, in a daring low-altitude jump, reinforcing the battle and carrying the day.

    That’s how you do that. See the parallels? I was saying, and then I heard a RangerUp talking personality on YouTube say, that if a lowly soldier on the ground is ordered to rescue Americans and critical others at Kabul, then given latitude he’s going to do everything he can to make that happen. He’s going to pull Americans fleeing out of his ass to fulfill his orders, and stop at nothing. Not Biden, though. He’s ordered defeat. And there you have it. When you’re pulling your hair out watching this shitshow, just know the stuff we would do is the stuff we haven’t got orders to do (the military, that is). And, guess whose going to get the blame for this?

      GEN McKenzie (CENTOM) calls SECDEF (GEN) Austin: “Listen, Lloyd, can you convince Biden to give me some latitude to win this airport ecav battle?”
      Austin: “No can do, Ken. POTUS put a cap on all commo and his ROE stands. But I have some very important questions to ask you.”
      Mckenzie, “What’s that?”
      Austin: “Are your troops wearing their proof-of-vax wristbands, and have you sufficient women and gays at the front?”

    This article at Zero Hedge is reminiscent of how Vietnam went down. Biden is telling folks we have an agreement with the Taliban?? They’re going to allow Americans to pass through the airport unmolested?? The Taliban is stealing passports and drivers licenses and beating these passengers. Almost 50 years later there’s a black MIA flag cracking in the wind above the New Mexico state capitol building. These people are likely to disappear forever to be used as slave labor until they’re all used up.

    Is the agreement as solid as the British agreement of 1842, which Gerard recently noted?

    Fred Reed relives his memories of attempting to escape Vietnam with his native girlfriend. The similarities are chilling. https://www.unz.com/freed/despair-in-the-empire-of-graveyards/

    Casey the problem is this. What we knew 12 minutes ago has already changed. I’m getting some pretty timely updates from a close friend, who’s getting Intel from his active SF guys, on their closed loop SF brotherhood.

    I watch I get pissed off. I’ve literally had to not pay attention.

      Please tell me your friend’s friends say they’re lazing targets in Central Kabul for Puff the Magic Dragon.

    Sundance at Last Refuge made a good case for this sh*tshow being deliberate,not necessarily the colossal series of blunders narrative. He believes Biden’s handlers (Obama,et al) wanted that vast array of American arms & equipment to grace the Taliban to cover for Obama’s selling the technology during his reign. It’s Benghazi redux,on a bigger scale. They willingly sacrificed the men at Benghazi to cover their butts;expect the same at Kabul.
    What a coincidence 10,000+ Americans are stranded in that sandbox;just in time for Sept 11.

    Casey Not to my knowledge. The info is from a vetted SF site. “ SF Brotherhood.” One must be SF, “ I’m not, wasn’t”. Every man must present his cred’s and be vetted by an existing SF guy on the site. Some really cutting info regarding Astan. Many here are active, and in direct contact with their Afgan SF brothers. Honestly to be able to review is an honor.

    I don’t have a look down the rabbit hole, I just have read over an SF guys shoulder privileges.

    Guys I wanted to point out, that JC Dodge over on AP, has done and outstanding vid, on stuff. I piss on his leg often. Howeverwhen he gets it right, i owe him the courtesy of sharing his good deeds.

    An associate forwarded it to me, I initially flushed it. That friend came back and stated I absolutely have to watch. I did. In fact I forwarded it to my crew.

    Recommend watching. If your out there Dodge outstanding job.
