No...this isn't an Onion article.

Well, as you're likely aware, Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan has pretty much been a #show. If you're not up to date, check out all the various recent ATS threads on the matter.

Anyway, the State Department on Tuesday their expressed concerns...

About how the Taliban just might not be keeping that promise they made about allowing women into politics and may in fact just be appointing a bunch of their male close associates including wanted criminals...

Meanwhile though, you've got people stranded in Afghanistan, people abandoned, dying...

But...anyway I guess..

Making sure the Afghanis have an 'inclusive government' is top priority...

thehill.com...


The State Department on Tuesday expressed concerns over the makeup of the new interim Afghan government announced by the Taliban, including the lack of female leaders and the past actions of some of those appointed to top posts.

A State Department spokesperson said in a statement shared with The Hill that although the Taliban “has presented this as a caretaker cabinet,” the U.S. “will judge the Taliban by its actions, not words.” 

“We have made clear our expectation that the Afghan people deserve an inclusive government,” the spokesperson added. 

The statement went on to note that the list of names announced by the Taliban earlier Tuesday “consists exclusively of individuals who are members of the Taliban or their close associates and no women.”

The announced leaders come after the Taliban last month specifically called on women to join government offices in an apparent attempt to portray itself as a more moderate version of the group that previously enforced extreme laws on women and girls, including preventing them from going to school and barring them from leaving their homes unless they were accompanied by a man.

The State Department also said Tuesday that it was “concerned by the affiliations and track records of some of the individuals."

Since things went so well last time, my advice for the State Department would be to stay out of Afghanistan’s business. Especially if they find the Taliban’s policies to be offensive. Just send the customary “we don’t like you” letter.

I don’t like the Taliban’s policies much myself but hey ho, their country their rules. The Afghans didn’t seem overly welcoming of western liberalism. Kabul and it’s carefully cultivated westernised elite is not indicitive of the rest of the country. These things can’t be forced (obviously) and social changes if they are to be must be allowed to occur naturally at their own pace.

Sounds perfect; let’s send antifa too.


On topic: Who is buying into this crap? I would really like to know the people who are being played as fools that gobble up this propaganda spewing from our government. My friends and family are all dumbfounded by the current happenings.

They should have thought of this last month. It's beyond our governments control now. Who is surprised that they fill the government with men or even that many of those men are on a terror watch list?

The Taliban will likely do better. After all we are living the results of an all-eunuch government here.

From a bunch of goat rider 8th century terrorist jackasses who sincerely believe women are a second class sub species primarily meant for breeding, our State Department is concerned about them installing an all male government.

Really?????

Just a feeble, weak, pathetic attempt at being concerned over what they 100 percent knew would be happening and have absolutely no issue with when there's no cameras rolling.

Maybe the State Department can call someone who gives a sh!t.

When the woke step outside of their little bubble, they are met with based reality.

Not everyone on the planet is obsessed with bowing to political correctness - the reason the US is in the mess its in, in Afghanistan and other places, is precisely because it thinks it can export its version of wokness to the world with little or no push back.

Here is an update on the score so far.....

Taliban = 2
US government globalists = 0

And people wonder why many in the world think Americans are out of touch and arrogant.

We just surrender to the Taliban and now we are proclaiming to them we don't like the government they are forming.

"What are you going to do about it; surrender again?" ~ The Taliban

Forget not having a diverse enough government!

They have committed the line that shall not be crossed. They painted over St. George of the Fentenyl. Now they've done it and we can expect Kabul to erupt into nights and night of fiery, but mostly peaceful protests over this outrage ... just as soon as our local astroturf orgs get their professional riot act together.
