I heard about that video on Russian TV. I decided to check it out. Let’s make this clear, this is not a video produced by RT or some other “Putin propaganda troll farm”. These are the US servicemen Biden calls “heroes”. Here it is, with no need for further comments from me. Behold the best and greatest warrior-heroes in history:
Note: should YouTube decide to “patriotically” “correct” or “cancel” this video, I also uploaded it here too:
By the way, the fact that the US is no longer a superpower is even affirmed by Ben Wallace, UK Defense Secretary. You can read his words here: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/sep/02/uk-defence-secretary-suggests-us-is-no-longer-superpower. Or, might Ben Wallace also be a “Putin agent”???

What more could you expect from a grunt, who makes ten times more money in a year by carrying a gun, than back in the states, selling and devouring hamburgers and coke? Stratification at its best. Only in US.
“Of all the tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under the omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
Americans have been in an extended period of cognitive dissonance ever since 9/11. Anyone actually paying attention to the sequence of events of the 9/11 attacks would have noticed that way before any evidence-based investigation could possibly have been done, our Zionist-controlled MSM posted pictures of the 19 supposed hijackers and Osama bin Laden on the front pages of newspapers all around the country. That was the first clue that the “official” narrative was total BS.
The old Marx brothers quote comes to mind, “Who ya gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?” Americans have chosen to ignore objective reality and believe instead a fable about evil Muslims attacking the USA, when in fact it was Israel who nuked us on that horrible day and got away with it. This disconnection from objective reality led our Congress to authorize the invasion of Afghanistan within days of the attacks. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) was the lone ‘no’ vote in Congress against the war. At the time, she was reviled for being unpatriotic, even receiving death threats. “When I voted ‘no,’ I said it was a blank check and would set the stage for perpetual war, and that’s what it’s done,” she said. How right she was.
The vast majority of people killed in the 9/11 wars were civilians. More than 335,000 of them have been killed in the fighting since 2001. Most of these civilians were Muslims. That makes these crazy US servicemen pikers by comparison. Yes, they’re a bunch of losers who posted disgusting videos, but the AngloZionist Empire and all its minions are the real war criminals here. Sadly, they will never be held to account their crimes in this world. Most certainly they will in the next.
20 year olds, sent on a non-military mission, a line of command from the CIC in the Oval Office, through the SOD in the Pentagon, through the CENTCOM, to the 82nd and Marines to do State Dept. work, some security, not speaking the language of the hundreds of thousands who were sent through 7-8 gates at a vast airport. All surrounded by terrorists who were “the enemy” but had to be trusted.
Totally surreal for the troops.
And then a suicide bomber and wild firefight killed 13, wounded dozens more troops, and killed and wounded hundreds of Afghans.
No one to blame. SNAFU. This is the US Presidency of Joe Biden and the US military of the Exceptional Nation. The State Dept. did this before in Benghazi and just enlarged the catastrophe from 4 dead to hundreds. Same State Dept. people. Different country.
The Congress may or may not investigate. No one will resign. No one will be fired. No one will be accountable.
I wrote American Howl as a warning bark. Now the Howl is a mournful bay.
The Afghan disaster rips at the losses of the war and the original attack of 9-11.
Americans will take it out on the hide of the Dems and the Establishment in the next elections.
Payment is long overdue.
Dear Larchmonter 445,
Suicide Bomber? What suicide bomber? Who told us there was a suicide Bomber? The US Military? And you believe him?
For heaven’s sake! There are sufficient videos showing the massive crowds of Afghanis at the airport, and then a ‘terrorist’ suicide Bomber manages to get in close. But who and what were the target? Why would anybody send in a ‘suicide bomber? It makes no sense whatsoever. It was chaotic enough without a bomber.
Undoubtedly something went badly wrong, and undoubtedly the novice troops would have and did react extremely badly, but the one thing I didn’t see were the ripped and mangled bodies of a bomb. All I saw were bodies that appeared to be intact and thus shot, not bombed. So how would the ‘Top Brass’ cover this up?
Now what was that about the first victim of war? And we can see all of the other victims, civilians and military, all in a mostly defenseless situation.
My heart weeps for ‘all’ of the victims, both death, and alive.
And as for the SNAFU; I think it was Ike who said, “The buck stops here” and for this event, I think it must be Joe that should accept that buck, as well as the Military bosses who were inept enough to stuff even a simple retreat up.
Even Napoleon when leaving Russia wasn’t that inept..
Truman not Ike.
For the record, Truman said the buck stops here.
There was a bomb. And there was a firefight. Massive casualties.
RT and Sputnik have videos with proof. The Guardian has a video with a witness who described the explosion and carried wounded to the hospital.
Do a little research.
But do not post your POV without some logic and facts.
You saw the bodies from area near, not at the point of explosion.
The mutilated were not ever videoed. The shrapnel hit people were what you saw, and maybe some hit by the crossfire.
A suicide bomber would just move with the crowd to the gate. That was his goal, and he might have taken hours to get up to the front, and thus, he did what he came to do.
His target was the gate where Marines worked and a huge crowd. His explosion was enormous. Could easily have worn 30 pounds of explosive, waist, chest, back.
There was a bomber for sure, and possibly several attackers.
It appears that most dead are civilians killed by US soldiers
Larch445 is also correct when he says that the target was the Marines and the (mostly civilians who collaborated with the invading force) crowd at the gate (the same way as, courtesy of the TSA, long crowds waiting to be screened are perfect targets.)
If I was wrong then I apologise to Larch!
And I am trying to use logic and knowledge of previous operations in regard to suicide bombings, both factual and bogus.
We have been told by the MSM and the US military that there was a ‘suicide bomber’. But have they ever told us the truth? What was the value of a ‘suicide bomber’? In taking out a few more defeated Americans and their believers? There is absolutely no value in that whatsoever.
Then we are told two other items of information; firstly that the US military were aware of the bomber prior to the event but did nothing. Why????? Was it because the US military were the only beneficiaries of this bombing? How can that be????
And then secondly, we are told that the US military by the use of a drone, took out the planner of this bombing. So how did they know, how did they know where and what to target, and how did they manage to use a drone, again when we have been told that they had pulled out and left ‘their’ equipment behind.
Can it be proven that there was a ‘suicide bomber’? Could there be other means of delivering a bomb, just as the US military used a drone to bomb ‘their’ known assassin.
Again could this bombing have been planned to destabilise the incoming Afghanistan government. If so, then it would have been planned by the US military or CIA. But where would they find a ‘trustworthy’ suicide bomber?
And Dear Larchmonter 445, this is the most important question; “Why must we believe liars”!!!! (US military)
And Saker, there is no need to be terse when the numbers speak for themselves. 13 US military are dead, but also over 180 unarmed Afghanis or almost 15 to 1, and I think that I’ve read elsewhere that both China and Russia have done a deal with the Taliban in regard to treatment of the opposition, so again; where is the value of this massacre??
You know, in regard to the use of suicide bombers, the method was created by Israel. The first victim was Rajiv Ghandi in 1991 killed by Tamil Tigers. I believe the most famous was the London Bombing in 2005, except that the four Muslims missed their train, no, not quite as Mohammed Sidique Khan was already dead, and the other three didn’t catch their train as it wasn’t there, and were later taken out at Canary Wharf, so ‘Suicide bombers’ that were never suicide bombers. And then there’s Benazir Bhutto who was taken out by a ‘suicide bomber’ a couple of years later except if I remember correctly she was shot before the bomb went off.
Do you notice something with all of these so-called ‘suicide-bombers’? They are all political. So what is there to be political about Kabul Airport?
An Iranian friend referred to the Battle of Karbala as the beginning of suicide bombing. Convenient that 13 US personnel were killed, one for each of the original colonies. Of couse whoever did this was working for ‘Intelligence’; a pay-back for biden’s withdrawal having left them w/no opium supply and their agents stuck in Afghanistan. Thus the big media frenzy, orchestrated fro above,
An Iranian friend told me the first suicide bombings were in the Battle` of Karbala. Without doubt whoever did this was working for ‘intelligence’; thus the immediate media firestorm, obviously directed from above. Interesting, one US service person for each of the 13 original colonies.
I wasn’t around at the time of the Battle of Karbala (680), but I ‘ve been around for long enough to witness some of the various strategies to win wars and hearts.
I’ve mentioned the assassination of PM Rajiv Ghandi in 1991 by a young female Tamil Tiger, and it was interesting to read that the Tamils had been trained in Israel at one camp while their adversaries the Sri Lankan military, I believe were being trained in another.
But it was again the Israeli’s use of the suicide bombers that caught my interest, and it has been noted that the Palestinian terrorist, Abu Nidal was not the only Palestinian to do Israel’s dirty work (Abu Nidal was killed in a raid on his home in Iraq just prior to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003). Every time the Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon visited the US or needed a Palestinian ‘suicide-bomber’ he got one, that is until Sharon had a disagreement with Benjamin Netanyahu, and consequently suffered two strokes, and once Sharon was hospitalised after his second stroke, the Palestinian suicide bombings stopped.
But then the ‘suicide bombings’ started in Iraq after the 2003 invasion by the US, and it was also noted that the US used Israeli intelligence for interrogating Iraqi prisoners. Again these bombings seemed to stop once ISIS was created, and it appeared as though the ‘suicide-bombings were placed on the back burner.
But let us also consider the ‘suicide bomber’ as a means to depict Muslim fighters, be they Arabs or Palestinians by the Western Intelligence forces, and as such with the London bombing, the so-called bombers included a Pakistani and a Jamaican, but that simply added curry to the fairy-tale.
So why is it that suddenly there was a ‘suicide-bomber’ at the Kabul Airport last week? There has to be a reason for this, and all the preparations appear to be within the American Military Intel, and this also reminds me of Britain’s problems with the IRA in the late 60’s when they were going ‘political’ the Whitehall couldn’t have that and so they created the Provincial IRA for work mostly in England.
Could it be that the US Military Intel plan to use the Muslim ‘suicide-bombers’ as a political tool within America? Think of it. They cannot use the ‘refugees from down south as they would be mostly ‘Christian’ or similar, so where could they get an influx of ‘Muslims’? From the Afghan refugees of course, and that would help in ‘their’ plans to continue the destabilising of the US, which is occurring at present with both Trump and the Democrats, and which continually threatens to break out in a total civil unrest.
Now of course I am completely out of my area of expertise here, and there are others of far better knowledge and expertise than I (think Saker, think Larchmontier and so on), however Nick Kollerstrom from the UK has done a bit of my work look at https://terroronthetube.co.uk/2014/08/24/77-made-in-israel/
Sorry. Provisional IRA. Provos.
I was surprised to hear of a “suicide bomber” in Kabul.
I had not heard of suicide bombers being active in Afg at all. The common appearance of suicide bombers seems to be in crowded venues in Israel: restaurants, buses, etc.
I agree with Andrew that “suicide bomber” is a meme that has become attached to the idea that there re crazy Muslim militants who are so fanatic that htey don’t mind blowing themselves up to achieve . . . something.
So the Kabul “suicide bomber” builds on a preexisting narrative that points to a disaffected group that will stop at nothing. Meanwhile we hear that the Taliban are trying to get handle on the situation, have announced that htey do not intend to foment civil unrest by going after adversaries.
The suicide bombing at the Kabul airport certainly seemed to put the kibosh on the Taliban’s announced plans. It totally stole the Tailban’s thunder, sidelined them as an originator of their own narrative, and placed in the forefront of the media the idea that the Taliban cannot and will not be able to control violent factions, retribution, will not be able to protect civilians, as it had promised—completely takes over the narrative.
So, I can’t judge whether there was a suicide bombing or not, but as ever the question to ask is: Cui bono?
The revenge drone bombing, if the disclosed details are true, was the icing on the cake. Who benefits from creating chaos and uncertainty and the sense that no one is in charge?
Colleagues, we are still deep in the fog of war.
We live in an age of extreme deception.
Nothing is as it seems. For example, I remember many years ago it became inadmissible to present audio-visual evidence in various jurisdictions of law due to advances in technology. This was before the technology spread to everyday people. They are called deep fakes now. Look at the following example:
For example, lately there were viral videos about one of the US mil evacuation planes at Kabul airport with the call sign 1109, which was clearly a reverse of the famous Kabalistic number (911). In this instance, there may have been some fake imagery. Look at many recent Hollywood productions and how realistic the CGI has become! This is even with mass gatherings in broad daylight.
However, even as a broken clock can be correct twice a day, a confirmed liar can actually be telling the truth due to circumstances. Unfortunately for him, he is in the position of the boy who cried “Wolf!”
Key to proving or disproving the suicide-bombing attack would be those forensic experts who have the expertise, the software, and the funding/integrity to look through the evidence pixel by pixel and to determine whether it was authentic. Even on-site interviewee “corroborators of the crime” can be staged; after 20 years of occupation, countless 5th columns remain on stand-by. There is no need to stage scenes anymore in a studio in Arizona, Sicily or Dubai.
On the other hand, what speaks to this being possibly true is the innate vindictiveness of the Anglo Zionist Empire. It is an age old technique they inherited from the British Empire – to poison the wells on their way out. There may not have been any political or even larger consideration – it may have been mere malice from those who are certifiably insane at this point.
So we currently lack the benefit of forensic evidence and the perspective of time and reflection.
Regardless, the ultimate effect of this single incident may not be significant if Zone B, and especially the SCO sector, gets its act together, stabilizes Afghan and evicts the shadow armies.
I’m with A.H.H. on this one. None of the msm can be trusted; the guardian is a cr*p, brit govt shill toiletpaper.
Any video/audio media online can be faked, we have passed the ‘event horizon’ of reality online, and there is worse to come, considering what is possible with technology now, and the coming powerful delusions mentioned in the Bible.
Andrew S MacGregor
I think you have a point there. Was that really a suicide bomber ? One man killing 170 people, not counting wounded ? I wonder.
There was a firefight between US troops, Security Contractors vs ISIS gunmen. Reportedly, many people were hit in the crossfire. 28 Taliban reported killed.
Get the picture? Some scores killed by the explosion, probable stampede of panicked people, and then gunfire from several angles.
What was the initial incident that set this whole massacre off. We are told it was a ‘suicide-bomber’ but to my mind that makes no sense. Any incident that frightens the crap out of an ill-trained, ill-prepared adolescent which would initiate a full ‘chain-reaction’ with all the fire-power held by those frightened, ill-trained adolescents around him would create the same havoc.
You’ve mentioned ‘Security Contractors’ but is there any corroboration for that, and again ‘ISIS gunmen’ but most of us are aware that ISIS= US/Israel.
I do have a picture; I am not ignoring the explosion, just the idea of a suicide bomber. I would concur with the panic, the stampede, the shooting by the US troops, and even the possibility that they would shoot each other, it is simply the ‘suicide-bomber’ angle that I distrust.
When they get stateside they’ll become cops.
And that sadly is the real truth of all this T1. I’ve seen it in action in Watts, South Central, ELA, Compton even downtown when they clubbed Amy Goodman. Perhaps these chaps will go on to be trained in Israel, like many of them are now, to hate their own citizens, friends, and families. In an old book ‘The Strawberry Statement’ Kuhn said the old enlistment posters that read the Army Makes Men….left off the word Mad, as in the word insane. 16 ounce curls to you!
My thoughts exactly. These guys will retrain as Cops and employ the same tactics on US Citizens as they did on Afghans. Does not bode well.
I have heard from the UK that Afghan refugees are to be given jobs in ethnic London (knicknamed “Londonistan” by my Brittish Squaddy friends) as what the Brits call “Covid Marshalls”. That is something like a cross between a Mall Cop and a security guard with duties being to keep people in orderly lines, check passes, check masks, etc. That would be mad if true.
Dear I know nothing,
Well I just remembered one such gentleman from the US Army in Mogadishu who was involved with that ‘Black-Hawk Down’ incident who retired from the army, but he didn’t join the police, he joined the FBI and became an Intelligence Officer. He was at the Aurora Theatre massacre (Batman begins or something) and was then involved with the Boston Bombing incident where three of his men were dressed up as ‘Black & Tans’, the very same three men who were involved with the Sandy Hook police training exercise.
I am of course referring to James Yacone. Once I named him as being in KL on the 9th March 2014, he started making even more ludicrous statements about FBI officers returning back to the various front-line military locations to fight terrorists facing the occupational armies of the US & NATO.
And of course there was Yacone’s liaison officer, Major Paula Broadwell, later to become Lt. Col Broadwell of General David Petraeus fame, and they would have become well known especially to the Chinese and Russian Intel due to their inept activities.
All retired military who came back and joined up with the ‘exceptional’ FBI. And James Yacone thoroughly enjoyed shooting the locals in Mogadishu as well as tossing people out of helicopters; think Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw just before he murdered Ibrahim Todashev
A sizeable majority of Americans support leaving Afghanistan. There was no perfect way out.
It’s not the Democrats’ fault and most people realize that.
Shrinking perimeters always works. So does evacuating civilians first. Any role playing military board game teaches one that. The vacuum at the top, from generations of losing generals and generally lying grifting ticket punchers created this. Bible thumping tobacco chewing morons at the top have gotten our young killed since WW1.
Seems to me these dogs of war (sæg-e-jæng) from the US of North Atlantis showed more bullets into the craowds than over them. Those orcs from the Mordor of North Amerique Amberrichistân must have killed far more real humans than the putative suicide bomber.
Hmm and you forget that the memory of the American voter is what he had for dinner yesterday, by election time this will have disappeared down the memory hole the same as when Bush lied the country in there in the first place. As far as the troops, if they had been where they should have been this would never of happened to them, it reminds of back some time ago on the local news after they put on their sad faces they said “another hero died today” two weeks later no one even knew who he was nor did they care, it reminds of Nam as we left the same way and in leaving never learned a thing and that includes the people and the voter, so I’m afraid you will find no sympathy here.
In the link you provide to The Guardian, which quotes Wallace, there is also a reference to recent remarks by Jeremy Hunt, a former British foreign secretary. He says, in a criticism of the Taliban, “…journalists should not be imprisoned if they speak truth to power”. One word…Assange.
Expected. The brits always speak with a forked tounge.

Showing social media how you wipe your ass. This really is the golden age of selfies. Had to turn away.
USA! USA! USA!
Oh wait the greatest Empire the Earth has ever know just lost to some goat herders!?
Long may the decline continue but something tells me its us normal, God fearing citizens that suffer whist the powerful continue to profit off our suffering and tax dollars. $2.1 trillion filled up the MIC coffers nicely! :(
As an Australian I can say I never understood why we went into this crazy conflict as it hasn’t resulted in a free Afghanistan but instead tainted our reputation in the Islamic world, not to mention a target for fanatic head chopper wannabes!
The “dying” superpower has given Israel nuclear “gravity” bombs and placed her in US’s CENTCOM of responsibility. The negotiations with Iran are failing. Iranian underground nuclear facilities can only be stopped with nuclear bombs. The US withdrew from Afghanistan in such a haste in anticipation of an imminent Israeli nuclear strike on Iran, most likely in September.
This is the latest and most advanced American made nuclear bomb (B61-12) they (Israel) are going to use against Iran and just in time to showcase their latest technology:
“November 2021 will bring the “first production units of the B61-12 Life Extension Program.””
“The weapon can be set to different levels of destruction and it can also penetrate the earth to hit underground targets.”
For an über-clever little Zionist such as yourself, it strikes me as quite a counterproductive approach of yours announcing to all and sundry ”what Israel is about to attack Iran with”. I understand your fervency to tell us about the marvels of Zionism’s Wunderwaffen is because you’re too elated to contain yourself. Care to ponder on what will become of the Zionist Entity if it nukes Iran (which it won’t) ?
Nussiminen, i know it will happen because i am myself somewhat psychic and i knew someone who is advanced level psychic, that person knows exactly what someone will do and say in 30 minutes, that person can read minds.
She told me future events which involves the use of nuclear weapons. I think it will happen, she was right about the timing of events this summer. I am 99% sure.
Thanks; that settles it.
Somewhat psychic amounts to conceited in layman’s terms. Meaning here that Iran has nothing to worry about.
this has to be seriously evaluated. A bomb by Israel would create chaos in the Middle East.
Would be fun if Iran then turns to Russia for Help…
Lack of military discipline is what comes to mind.

Watched the video. What a disgrace to the US military. Do they only employ morons? The IQ of their troops must be somewhat below of 70. Totally disgraceful.
Hold the video up against American troops landing in Europe in 1944 and tell me there is no difference….
On the day in 1967 when Hamilton Gregory reported to a Tennessee induction center to begin his service in the U.S. Army, a sergeant presented him to another young man who was also headed to Fort Benning, Georgia, to start basic training. The other new soldier’s name was Johnny Gupton, or so Gregory calls him. “I want you to take charge of Gupton,” the sergeant told Gregory. Before they boarded the bus to the airport, the sergeant handed Gregory Gupton’s paperwork along with his own, to carry on the trip.
In the next hours and days, Gregory discovered why the sergeant had put Gupton in his care. Gupton could not read or write. He didn’t know his home address or what state he was from, so he could not send the pre-stamped postcard the new recruits were given at Benning to tell their families they had arrived. He didn’t know his next of kin’s full name, didn’t know that there was a war in Vietnam, and couldn’t tie the laces on his combat boots.
How did a man so obviously unfit for service get drafted? A slipup? Far from it. Gupton was one of more than 350,000 other young men drafted during the Vietnam war under a deliberate policy requiring that nearly a third of all military recruits should be drawn from men with general aptitude test scores at the bottom or for a certain percentage below the minimum standard. This while draft boards around the country made it shockingly easy for middle class, better educated men to avoid serving — just ask Bill Clinton or Donald Trump or Rush Limbaugh. The policy was known as Project 100,000. Its principal promoter was Lyndon Johnson’s defense secretary, Robert McNamara.
Hamilton Gregory — who was not drafted but enlisted voluntarily — was troubled and outraged by his experience with Johnny Gupton and subsequent encounters with other low-IQ draftees. During his Army service he raised questions about the policy with various superiors, and after his discharge, while making a career as a journalist and author, he kept on tracking down official documents and seeking out personal accounts. The evidence he accumulated over more than 40 years makes the story he tells in McNamara’s Folly not just convincing but ironclad. Its conclusion is ironclad too: U.S. draft policy during the Vietnam war was a moral atrocity.
Project 100,000 troops were killed or wounded in Vietnam at higher rates than in the U.S. force as a whole, but the unfairness didn’t stop there. More than half left the service with less than honorable discharges — not surprising, for men who weren’t mentally fit to be soldiers to begin with. Gregory notes the perversity: “An unsuitable man is taken into the military and then returned to society — with stigma — for being unsuitable.” Piling yet another disadvantage on already disadvantaged lives, those discharges deprived them of veterans benefits and further limited the already small chance that those men had to find any kind of stable job in civilian life. And for the same reasons they got drafted in the first place — that they were inarticulate, ignorant of the rules and their rights, and politically powerless — they were the least able to appeal those bad discharges. As Gregory observes, we eventually amnestied men who illegally evaded being drafted, but nobody lobbied for amnesty for McNamara’s bad-paper vets.
McNamara’s Folly is heartbreaking to read, but it tells a story that most Americans have never heard and that should be remembered far more widely than it is. It deserves the widest possible readership.
In American society the term “friendship” is applied to relationships which in the Soviet Union
(and much of Europe) would be called acquaintanceships. Many students and observers of American society, native and foreign alike, have suggested that the friendship of Americans tend to be superficial, short-lived, and limited in intimacy. Friendships in America do not often become lifelong exchanges of solidarity and
moral and emotional support.

(Full disclosure) I wanted to throw up, and was too disgusted by some of the “antics”, of said representatives, of said “us” , (not us) so was forced to fast forward/ reverse around- yet – full of wisdom because it was a “source” data/document.
It was the only way for me to learn, (better now then never) .
I learned more from this clip then I did from the decades of useless Western media “news.” (Propaganda)
I have to admit, I am a bit conflicted, whenever I see a guy with a beard, in some foreign land, being represented (out of context) in the media screaming something at the television camera steering at him.
They (the dudes/ err “ladies” in the video) represent the USA, to everyone in foreign land (kinda scary?! Ehh)
What else do you expect the guy with a beard to say after experiencing that.
It is difficult to understand what was going on at that checkpoint without some context. Were those crowd control rounds, tear gas grenades or live rounds and live grenades?
That is what I was thinking too.
I also thought, after watching those “soldiers” smoking who knows what (I also suspect one may have actually injected something) if they actually coud tell the difference between a 40mm tear gas round and a 40mm fragmentation grenade, or remember what had been loaded if they can tell the difference.
Looking at where they were aiming their live rifle fire was very concerning, so I can only imagine what carnage a 40mm grenade in a crowd could cause.
It may even be that the “Suicide bomber” was actually a 40mm grenade explosion – perhaps even a bag of 40mm greandes at the feet of the soldiers on the wall exploding – pehaps from negligence of handling or fieing or negligence from uncontrolled indirect fire – struck by a richochet from the hundreds of live 5.56mm, 7.62mm, and 00 buck seen being blasted everywhere in that video.
And this video proves what? There is a need for further comment from you.
US is not a superpower anymore? Who wrote this nonsense. 10 aircraft carriers + 14 nuclear submarines with 20 trident rockets each (dozens of warheads in every trident rocket). Someone clearly think this is a joke. You can love it or hate it but this is reality. Russia is second, China is still too small for both US and Russia.
Ben, again, the US is not a superpower anymore.
The Saker wrote ‘the nonsense’ on this post, I just repeated it, and I prescribe and recommend for you a good dose of Andrei Martyanov who says ‘the nonsense’ with great feeling – this one to start with:
And also, The Saker’s synthesis on Afghanistan (where he again for the umpteenth time and in short deals with nukes which is still mutual death and destruction). You know what Putin said .. OK, if anyone uses nukes against Russia, we will all die, but they will die like dogs and we will die like heroes. (From memory).
And aircraft carriers? Ever heard of Sergei Shoigu and his ranges of clever missiles and aircraft carrier sitting ducks? The balance of military power has decidedly changed excepting for one issue here. Go read some Martyanov. Do you know that over the past two decades, China has built the largest intermediate-range ballistic missile force in the world? (So say the US themselves … Too small eh?). And Iran is not a slouch at all in the missile category. And just go see what the Syrians are doing with their measly S200’s against the regular and cowardly sorties sneaking in over the Lebanon by the Israelis. They’re shooting down 22 out of 24 .. and it is now routine.
The balance of economic power has decidedly changed, but it is early days and not so easy to grasp hold of it. The petrodollar ditch comes in bits and pieces as neither Russia nor China is intending to cause a global recession *if* they can help it. The five biggest banks in the world are now Chinese banks for example. I picked this up just this morning for example: https://www.rt.com/business/533870-russia-china-ditch-dollar-transactions/
And the soldiers on this video? Well, the message is clear and I am sorry for them. Messy, dirty, filthy, uneducated and cannot clean up their own environment and their commanders need to be hung by the neck with their own rainbow flags.
The US is not a superpower anymore.
Correct — the US is not a superpower anymore. By now, the neoliberal plague and the focused, highly determined and deliberate wrecking of the fabric of US society by the ruling Zionist cabal personified by Soros have ultimately sapped the Empire’s resilience from within. Add to this the agile, successful resistance from without and the US can be seen for what it really is: a dying beast with a majority population of militant yet absolutely clueless parasites. The defeat just suffered at the hands of the Taliban is a very powerful testimony to the collapse of the US Empire. At most, it’s a matter of another 10 years before it goes belly up accompanied by the sound of loud whining and wailing heard in, most notably, Gównopolska and Ukraine (or whatever remains of the latter).
Any country that can bring devastating blow to another country on another continent is super power. Not to mention US’s soft power. Why is this so hard to understand. Russia is also super power even though Russian youth are wearing Nasa and SpaceX t-shirts. I haven’t seen Roskosmos t-shirts yet. Why is that explain to me if US is not superpower.
Oh boy .. I guess you can tell me about soft power because it is really hard to understand – that there is little left of that stuff in this world of ours. All I know is that not one of the neighboring countries wanted to give the US a space for a base while they were running from Afghanistan. China has just chased John Kerry home with a no-thank-you and so they did with a few other US representatives over these months. But, you tell me what soft power?
The T-shirts are actually more fun.
I suggest you spend a few $/£ and educate urself a bit about modern weapons.
You will find 3 exellent books in this link and im sure other more intelligent commenters may expand the library with other books.
The road to victory, hence power, lies not in the technology but the heart.
A report that I read several years ago on the US Military (Army particularly) detailed the level of gang penetration, lack of training, overspecialization, etc. You know who set up your original base in Afghanistan? While your troops were waiting for CE’s to set up your MODS, the Canadians were 100% complete, ended up loaning your chaps a Corporal to teach your chaps how to set MOD’s up. Want more? Ran into a British CE a few years ago, had to teach one of your chaps in Iraq to keep the finger off the pistol trigger around allies, pulled the pistol apart and it was filthy. Your soldier said – they only teach us to run the brush up the bore a few times, not really how to strip it. Want more? Your SAW is 60% of your units fire power but in the US you need a ‘specialist’ rating to run it. In all Commonwealth Armies every squaddie is trained in the use of that weapon.
Sad state – the video above, like I said in a previous post – shows a complete disregard for military discipline in the field and lack of personal and unit pride. These are not the actions of soldiers of a ‘superpower’ at the apex of its’ power, they more appear like undisciplined mobs in the Legions that hailed the end of the Western Roman Empire.
“By the way, the fact that the US is no longer a superpower is even affirmed by Ben Wallace, UK Defense Secretary. ”
Whatever Brits say, shouldn’t be taken at face vallue. They are acting as jealous mistress who’s sugar-daddy just realised he’s gone bankrupt.
And what wh.. promiscuous persons do in such situation? They start flirting with next victims. Who in the world that might be..?
if i may ask, are you american? european? you hv a fancy handle here too :)
sorry to jump in here while you direct your question to da Boss…
you read v well and hv no fear in calling what you see :)
Its a hardware problem, you once said and I totally agree
and I will add, there is no replacement parts
just as the free printing press is really an interest bearing instrument
and that kind of stuff always, w/out fail, goes parabolic at the late stage, unstoppable!
so? who is this victim you are leaving as open question? drop a name will you?
i am trying to be as sensitive as possible to the few good american’s left (that are actually thinking) so its not right for me to name but perhaps you can share more your thoughts?!
how much time do you think USA, as a brand name, has left?
In chinese/asian culture, if a person lost his/her name, (s)he ‘died’.
It appears XJP and VVP is going for the kill, for real, this time, but to date, the west, no one read it yet?! they are still pretending their viral circus show is the greatest and most magikal of all the earth/galaxy!
or maybe its best to wait for da Boss to reply first…
I’m not sure what the point of this video was. I saw worse shenanigans when I played rugby.
The US military makes a very sore loser.
This particular moron is clearly unaware that ISIS is just another US military Special Forces outfit.
In contrast, a video made (by Americans) during the 1980s Soviet ‘adventure’ in Afghanistan shows dramatic differences between Russians and Americans.
“The only thing we have taken gratuitously from this country is air. The air we breathe”
Check out the Spetsnaz dude at 25:50!
Here’s more examples of the chivalrous behavior of American war heroes.
In a petulant fit of spite and impotent anger, these US troops deliberately destroyed some civilians sections of the Kabul International Airport such as: “security cameras were broken, computers destroyed, many glass panes shattered. Electrical cabling was cut, the x-ray machines were broken and even arrival/departure screens overturned”
Stay Classy, America!
If they were happy to record this kind of stuff one can only imagine what happened off camera
Ben Wallace may conceivably be hinting allegorically that we didn’t get out from under the EU jackboot just to have the US put its own on our neck.
Brexit was after all about independence, not about changing slaveowner.
I’m sure former ComIntern countries in Eastern Europe understand what I’m talking abouit…..
Compere to this from Russia:
Social media and opsec are in opposition.
The stuff that gets posted online.
Twitter insta and tiictok.
Any one can and does post the most astonishingly incriminating evidence, all for a like or an upvote.

Good connection of key data points.
They will rue building social media.
As this iteration of the Beast dies and alliances break down, and the Russians keep their eyes on the ball, we will get true info like this.
Especially from the two old deans of the game, the British and Russians.
Brits will be blunt and at every opportunity turn in the dagger on the Americans.
Russians will remain polite, clinical and circumspect, but nonetheless point a mile-wide search beam at the key data.
To continue the thought, for connoisseurs of conspiracies, perhaps the panicky and vulgar youngsters seen in the videos above were precisely positioned where they were to “broaden the strategic depths,” and redirect the eye in disgust and amusement while the real action took place elsewhere at the hands of quiet professionals.
For that matter, I would love to see the autopsy reports of those said youngsters and the angles of entry/exit of projectiles. But I suspect the same specialists at Bethesda that handled the JFK remains will take of that too.
Dear Mr. MacGregor! I am way out on a limb here and need help.
Snipers in position

Thanks for archiving anon…..
So what can derive from these and assorted tweets:
Account tweets there’s to be a deployment to Kabul._
Three infantry battalions will be deploying to Kabul airport in the next 24 to 48 hours to help with security and contingency operations, per DoD.
Tweets about reports of security threats in Kabul and the airport.
Tweets Reports of a CIA extraction from Kabul.
Tweets the “unconfirmed” night arrival in Kabul of the 82nd airborne.
(See archived link above)
Tweets that US snipers are in position at Kabul airport.
Can we assume these snipers are from the 82nd??
(See archived link)
The aftermath of the Kabul airport suicide bombing is splattered (I know, crass choice of word) all over the internet.
Then the RT reporter carries eye witness accounts it was US shooting into the crowd that caused most fatalities.
This is not denied, but the mainstream ignore (except for BBC, indicating the Brits intelligence and military have a score to settle with the US intel and/or military for both the withdrawal from Afghanistan at all, and then with the mind boggling ineptitude of the withdrawal.
Murad Gazdiev @MuradGazdiev
“The Americans thought there were more suicide bombers, so they started shooting into the panicked crowd”
Survivors and victims of the Kabul airport suicide attack tell us that only a fraction of those killed died from the blast.
Most were killed by the stampede and gunfire.
In this hybrid-war age, it is astonishing how there are always foreign men of military age parked on a roof surrounding a Maidan or any urban flash point.
This will be first point to review in forensic analysis of the scene.
And with geo-location capabilities of every selfie, and every tourist on every madain busy with such selfies, the ones with access to the data streams will have a leg up. This may be part of the fight against privacy concerns against social media giants (Russia requiring them to house their user data in Russia, etc.) rather than exclusively in USA.
And how much help did those “panicked youngsters” opening indiscriminate fire have from the platforms above them? Pepe’s favorite on-scene reporter reported most fire came from above:
For a escatological explantion to this…
the video is from “Q” News official TV.
It’s weirdly and discomfortingly patriotic
Did anyone catch that?
Along the lines of Mr Trump’s behaviour, the patriotism in this video is expressed through the music and the ideas of “young men behaving badly nothing more” and “they are doing it for the honor of their country ” and God bless them”
So very “Q” don’t you think?
I watched 6 minutes of the video, can someone point out what was so horrible, was it the clogged toilet, rolling a cigarette?
They aren’t the Peace Corp and evacuating this many people is more difficult than 99% of any military operations we’ve done in the past 20yrs.
The only thing I saw that looked kind of bad was firing smoke cannisters into the crowd at the fence but if they were pushing at the gate it would be justified even for their own protection (sounds Israeli, I know) but it’s true. If you can disperse people a little bit then the people at the gate will not get crushed. We do not have the context.
OMG a marine is smashing a gear shift in a truck so the Taliban can’t use it. I didn’t see the point in doing that but leaving a box of crackers behind was enough to make FOX howl.
Tone and feel
It had a, ‘this is what we had to deal with everyday while you watched FOX’ vibe it but it was not the shot gun in the face truck video. That one made me sick.
Don’t they have tools? don’t they have some engineers on side? I mean those Trucks are meant for war, what those soldiers this to accomplish with their boots? this is borderline stupid, but guess it is on order and their haven’t any Tools left.
They are damaging the trucks they cannot take with them so the Taliban cannot use them.
I think this is unnecessary but that was the order. It’s just as likely that the truck would be used by civilian engineers. I mean it’s a truck. Do they really think that Taliban is going to drive it to … what does the U.S. think that Taliban is going to do with those trucks. Just leave the Afghans some stuff already. I get being upset about ATGMs and RPG’s but trucks are not really weapons.

You were right in reposting the working video here. YouTube censorship has put restrictions on the heroine (pun intended) behavior of the “Master Race Heros”©️
