No wasteful spending and just plane waste did not begin with U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan but it certainly continued. Apparently equipment was destroyed at the Kabul airport with withdrawal (SOME equipment). Much was left abandoned in fields throughout Afghanistan that had become old and parts unattainable, maintenance ignored. Billions of equipment was left for the Taliban to control……….operable equipment. Government just wants to admit that which was not operable. Waste did not begin during the withdrawal. A large complex was built and never used, costing billions. Another training facility basically melted away, poorly constructed……….but hell we only spent $500,000 on that one. Take a peak at the list of wasteful spending in the link below.
Here is a thought: Biden (well maybe not an incoherent Joe Biden) and the Pentagon had to know prior to the Afghan withdrawal that Putin was eyeing the Ukraine. All that military equipment left in Afghanistan could have been moved to the Ukraine, IF the U.S. and the Biden puppet masters were serious about helping the Ukrainians defend themselves. Some of that aid we are providing now could have been used to transport equipment from Afghanistan to the Ukraine and they’d be better equipped than they are now, possibly even prepared for a Putin invasion. BUT no………..we leave all our equipment in Afghanistan. We’ll just give the Ukraine some additional American tax dollars. The Pentagon and Biden administration are acting out a response, just a weak response. They know, they knew that the Ukraine was going to fall to Putin months ago. They don’t care. That is part of the act.
NATO and the U.S. are merely standing by like spectators. The real underlying plan is a movement towards globalism. Biden and his Left (Democratic Socialist Party) are globalists. Wasting millions of tax dollars watching it all play out.
