Ann Coulter @AnnCoulter
Trump REPEATEDLY demanded that we bring our soldiers home, but only President Biden had the balls to do it.

Here are a few of Trump's wuss, B.S. - I mean "masterful" - tweets: (Coulter gives examples of Trump's platitudes)


Fewer Americans have died in Afghanistan under Biden's watch than any US president since 9/11. The trillions of dollars spent and the lives lost in a futile effort to make Afghanistan something it is not. That all came to end thanks to Joe Biden. A reminder: Biden made the decision to end the debacle. He wasn't in Afghanistan overseeing the withdrawal.

(AP News)American service members killed in Afghanistan through April 2021: 2,448. U.S. contractors killed in Afghanistan: 3,846.

USA Today reported that the war in Afghanistan has cost $2.3 trillion [starting after 9/11 and through September 2021], according to Wednesday’s release from Brown University’s Costs of War Project.

Forbes put it in starker terms: The War In Afghanistan Cost America $300 Million Per Day For 20 Years
In the 20 years since September 11, 2001, the United States has spent more than $2 trillion on the war in Afghanistan. That’s $300 million dollars per day, every day, for two decades. Or $50,000 for each of Afghanistan's 40 million people. In baser terms, Uncle Sam has spent more keeping the Taliban at bay than the net worths of Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bill Gates and the 30 richest billionaires in America, combined.

Those headline numbers include $800 billion in direct war-fighting costs and $85 billion to train the vanquished Afghan army, which folded in the weeks since the Pentagon’s sudden early July closure of Bagram Air Force Base eliminated the promise of air support against the advancing Taliban. U.S. taxpayers have been giving Afghan soldiers $750 million a year in payroll. All told, Brown University’s Costs of War Project estimates the total spending at $2.26 trillion.

    Thanks Curt,

    It's good to remind people that our withdrawal from Afghanistan was not the disastrous mistake the right has convinced some people to believe that it was.

    Who else gets the idea that Ann was OrangeMan's side piece and that he dumped her and she's still POed?
