Blame King Donald for Shrub? Other way around. Blame Nixon for Southern strategy, oh you bet, worst thing the GOP ever allowed. Now it is the Dixiecrat party.

Yeah, YOUR great president has really stepped in it this time......................
And I do mean YOUR president, because he is NOT mine.

How quickly people forget and point at the next guy;

President Joe Biden is under mounting pressure as he weighs whether to fully withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan by May 1, a deadline negotiated by the Trump administration.

It was Trump who started the retreat of US soldiers from all the world's war havens.

Well, you have to point at the 'next' guy, because he's the one calling the shots now, isn't he??
You might think that somebody in charge would maybe try to hand the country back to the Taliban in a more controlled fashion.
I personally think this is gonna ride on Biden's shoulders for a long long time, especially after the Taliban plans and carries out their next terrorist attack.

Controller fashion? There is no one but Taliban there, never has been. Shrub's state department failure, just like WMD.
<ed>Soviet's found that out. You'd think the Putin Lover Rump would have known that.

For many centuries Afghanistan has been ruled by a small group of "warlords" (aka "thugs"), just about every "colonial power" has failed to remove them from their embedded nature, and the people are so cowed by this long history of brutal suppression they have become incapable of resisting. Most recently "the west" have tried, but, in my book gave up far too soon thinking they had done the job of removing such a deeply engrained culture of being oppressed.


* Colonial power - any of, and all of, Britain, the west, USA, USSR, and not doubt a few more nations and groups of nations.

Funny, I thought this was a SETI thread, not politics.
Why don't y'all take this out back and let the rest of us return to napping?

. . Methinks the test was essentially and fatally flawed. The "food" in the puzzle portion should have made squeaking noises, smelt like mice and moved furtively around in the puzzle. The numbers would have been reversed. If anyone doubts that try telling it to the mice my red headed mate has disposed of ... <shrug>

Some cats are mousers, and some run and hide from mice. All depends if mommy taught them to hunt.

Mine is a mouser.
After she catches one, she brings it into the house to show me, and to play with it.
Then gets careless and it gets away, and I have to find it. :(
