American blood has been spilled in Afghanistan as a result of Biden’s failed belief in the Taliban. He is now standing by and is awaiting further orders from the Taliban. As a result, the latest numbers of casualties. There are 11 Marines and a Navy medic are dead and three more have been wounded. We don’t know if any American civilians were hurt in the bombing near the airport in Kabul.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
The U.S. ambassador in Kabul has told staff there that four U.S. Marines were killed in an explosion at the city’s airport and three wounded, a U.S. official with knowledge of the briefing said. Two explosions ripped through crowds of Afghans trying to enter the airport on Thursday.
At least three U.S. troops were injured, a U.S. official said. Witnesses reported multiple fatalities among the Afghans, many of whom were trying to enter the airport because they had assisted U.S.-led coalition efforts and feared persecution by the Taliban.
Pentagon press secretary John Kirby confirmed:
“We can confirm that a number of U.S. service members were killed in today’s complex attack at Kabul airport. A number of others are being treated for wounds. We also know that a number of Afghans fell victim to this heinous attack.”
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to loved ones and teammates of all those killed and injured.”

An unnamed U.S. official told the Associated Press that the attacks were carried out by ISIS. This could lead to war between the Taliban and ISIS. The advantage goes to the Taliban because of all of the weaponry gifted to them by Joe Biden and the fact that they could care less about human shields. ISIS cannot avoid attacks by taking hostages. I have the feeling that Al Qaeda will side with the Taliban. ISIS won’t stand a chance.
