Americans are literally be left trapped at the gate with Taliban behind them. Biden seems to have abandoned thousands of Americans.

I may go to region. Unclear yet. I may simply return to United States in next few days. Please support my work. Because I need it, and you will need me. After years of experience and many wars/conflicts, I am at top of my game:



Kabul: US Forces in Swift Retrograde

We still have at least one C-17 on the ground. Another just turned on beacon in flight. A tanker is heading that direction. Several other C-17s recently left Afghan airspace and still flying.

According to a solid source, Taliban is keeping many people trapped at the Gate. US forces not at the gate now and turned away at gunpoint US citizens with US passports. (Lara Logan told me this on phone.)

We are leaving Americans behind literally at the Gate.

Danger is severe. Taliban can attack remainder of our forces at their leisure. Our forces are within small arms range of the enemy.

Biden has been busy evacuating tens of thousands of Afghans while leaving Americans behind.

Kabul: Preparing More Attacks on Americans

Information war is ongoing. Social media posts are bountiful blaming Americans in whole or in part for all or most of the Afghan casualties in the attack that led to 13 American deaths and many wounded.

The truth of all this is irrelevant. I’ve published that last statement many times during the wars. Some people still object. Others get it. Yet others finally getting it. This is information war.

Never Forget who brought you this crisis

From JBS.

"Some names to remember.

If you know any of the military "leaders" on this list that publicly said Biden would be a great leader, remind them they bear responsibility for the greatest tragedy in American military history.

Never forget their names.

Don't let them slink away and pretend that they didn't help set this up."

US Government Claims attack on ISIS-K

Let’s see…this means to find this credible I must believe Biden, Austin, Milley, and the people who got us into this. Same ones who left the border wide open. Trying to force mass vaccinations which ultimately will cause more death and explosive outrage than Afghanistan. And who supported ANTIFA/BLM burning, raping, murdering, while blaming “white rage.” All while trying to make Butch Cassidy into an Army Ranger.

I gauge trust in US government somewhere slightly above North Korea and Haiti, Biden as a man significantly lower than Putin — in total I trust our government about as much as Cuba. Simply zero trust in top military or civilian leadership. Not “trust but verify.” But active mistrust and distrust. I expect them to habitually lie even about things where no lie is needed and they were better served by truth. They are addicted to lying.


Afghanistan: US Government Requesting information about people left behind

Write a comment

I deleted request from United States government for information about US Citizens and others left behind in Afghanistan. CENTCOM sent request earlier today.

There is strong evidence US Government is providing deadly information to Taliban terrorists. The US Government is riddled with spies and incompetence. They cannot be trusted.

We are on our own.

From JBS Editor:

"PLEASE JOIN MICHAELS TELEGRAM CHANNEL as a primary alternative to Twitter.

Michael Yons SITREP Channel.


Communication as well as other systems might be unreliable or down in the coming days and weeks. Much more serious than the disruptions we saw earlier.

China is getting ready to hit Taiwan, and that means massive disruption to US systems in order to paralyze us further from helping Taiwan.

Twitter, for now, is allowing criticism of the Biden Regime and the WestExec handlers, but that will change when the CCP changes its purpose for the criticism. Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, any social media platform that has been willing to play by CCP rules in the past will shut down all dissent almost overnight.

Therefore only Locals and Telegram right now are secure. That could change in the future, but for now, they are the only safe means of getting the truth broadcast out."

From Show Notes:

"President Biden spoke publicly about the Taliban taking control of several key parts of Afghanistan, as Americans are trapped and people try to flee en masse. "The truth is, this did unfold more quickly than we had anticipated," Biden said. War correspondent Michael Yon and my husband Lynn, who was deployed to Afghanistan multiple times as a Marine, answer questions live and respond to Biden's statements."

"The military axiom that “amateurs talk strategy while professionals talk logistics” has special meaning in #Afghanistan During the Soviet war, though the Bear comprised Afghanistan’s entire northern border, the Afghan resistance was frequently able to block Soviet logistical operations, which were dependent on scant roads, tunnels and corridors. Captured Soviet logistics convoys often supplied the Mujahidin.

Logistics in landlocked Afghanistan are exceptionally tough because the country is a transportation nightmare of impassable mountains, barren deserts, and rugged landscape with only capillary roads and airports.

When we lose a bridge, we can’t just detour twenty miles to the next one, as we might on the plains of Europe. In Afghanistan, there might not be another route for hundreds of miles. Conversely, Afghan fighters, who have used guerilla warfare tactics for decades—centuries even—lack our tanks, vehicles and massive supply lines, leaving them less dependent on infrastructure. Most of the guerrillas we face are from the immediate area. Their corn comes from their own stalks; ours comes from other continents.
