The left’s hatred for America always manages to shine through their disingenuous claims to want a “better” country. This is never more apparent than during a tragedy such as the U.S. experienced on Thursday.
In large part because of the compromised position President Joe Biden left the U.S. military in as a result of feckless leadership in both the White House and Pentagon, 13 U.S. service members, including 11 Marines and a Navy corpsman, lost their lives in Afghanistan in a pair of suicide bombings outside the airport in Kabul.
In addition to Vice News suggesting the U.S. Marine Corps is full of neo-Nazis, and an MSNBC intelligence analyst essentially saying “deal with it,” in response to the loss of American life, we also saw The Root’s Michael Harriot question the use of the term “terror attack” in describing the bombings — suicide bombings believed to have been orchestrated by ISIS-K, a terrorist group.
“I’m being 100 percent serious when I ask this question: Is it fair to call it a “terror attack” if you target foreign troops occupying your country?” Harriot tweeted.

Of course, Biden’s saving grace in the debacle of a surrender to the Taliban has been, up until Thursday, that there have been no American casualties in his bungling of the evacuation. Well, that narrative just blew up in the president’s face, no pun intended, meaning the Biden water carriers had to do extra duty Thursday.
And what better way than to paint the U.S. military as an occupying force — in effect, they had it coming seems to be the message here.
Biden used the bombings to justify his decision to get out of Afghanistan during Thursday’s address to the nation, a common tactic by the administration and its media arm. In reality, few Americans disagree with leaving after 20-plus years. The problem is with how Biden is managing the exit. Having set his own arbitrary deadline of being out by Aug. 31, which is in four days, the likelihood that Americans will be left behind Taliban lines is very high. In addition, the U.S. is depending on Taliban forces to help secure Hamid Karzai International Airport.
As for Biden water carriers doing extra duty, Huffington Post DC bureau chief Kevin Robillard used the attack to slam Republicans for ” pushing to re-invade Afghanistan” and calling on Biden to resign over the worst loss of U.S. life there in over a decade.
“Republicans are pushing President Joe Biden to take actions that would amount to re-invading Afghanistan by either requiring the U.S. military to retake an abandoned air base or staying in the country long enough to restart the dormant war with the Taliban,” he pooh-poohed.
What some have called for is establishing a secure base of operations in the country by retaking Bagram Air Base to better protect the lives of U.S. service members currently in a compromised position at the Kabul airport and ensure the ability to get everyone out. Military analysts have been highly critical of the administration for surrendering this base before getting Americans out first.
You are a complete idiot. We don’t need to reinvade. And, yes, pudding brain should resign. Are you are real journalist?

Back to the writer from The Root, social media users were quick to get to the root of the problem. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

The Root of idiocy.

The Taliban didn’t even do this. It was an offshoot of ISIS, an undisputed terrorist group. They did it to a crowd of people trying to get out of the country, not specifically our troops.
What is wrong with you? Contrarian to the point of 🧠 falling out?

Ok, so you hate America. Get out.

“I’m just asking questions” for $400, Alex.
ISIS-K doesn’t represent the government of Afghanistan, old or new, so what is this “your country” stuff.
It was a public attack intended to incite terror, so yeah, it was a terror attack, no quotes needed.
