Afghanistan has finally imploded.
But this disaster was years in the making.
And now, Liz Cheney has been completely embarrassed after the role she played was exposed.
Destroying the Middle East is a family business for Liz Cheney and her father. Her dad had the brilliant idea to try to build an empire in the Middle East in the early 2000s.
Of course, her dad left in disgrace after the failed Bush administration was over, and mostly stayed out of the public eye.
But it wasn’t long before his daughter, Liz, took up the mantle of destroying Afghanistan.
In 2020, there was a solid agreement in place to withdraw troops from Afghanistan in the safest manner possible.
However, Liz Cheney wanted American troops to remain in Afghanistan forever, to protect her father’s legacy.
So, she teamed up with House Democrats to insert an amendment in the National Defense Authorization Act to block withdrawal from Afghanistan completely, and guarantee that the troops would be stranded there forever.
Cheney’s donors at Raytheon, General Dynamics, and other large defense contractors, lobbied heavily for this amendment, and it passed by a vote of 45-11.
After the debacle in Afghanistan, Cheney was desperately hoping people would forget her misdeeds from the previous year.
But journalist Glenn Greenwald, who had originally reported on the amendment, brought it to light again when he tweeted “In Congress, a coalition of pro-war, Raytheon-funded House Dems and neocons like Liz Cheney united to try to block (withdrawal).”
Now the world is once again seeing how disastrous Liz Cheney and her family have been for America.
After all, this entire debacle started when George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and their henchmen such as John Ashcroft, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and John Yoo decided they wanted to build an empire in the Middle East to take their oil.
They took advantage of a frightened nation after 9/11 and used fear to build a vast surveillance state and attempt to create a global empire.
This month, with the chaos in Afghanistan, the world saw clearly how badly that project had failed.
All of the mayhem that has erupted this month, is a byproduct of the disastrous actions of the Cheney family and their friends in the ruling class after 9/11.
America’s reputation around the globe has now been seriously damaged, because of the arrogance of corrupt leaders like the Bush family and the Cheney family.
It may take years for this reputation to fully recover, but Cheney is completely unapologetic for her and her family’s role.
She has been all over Twitter trashing conservatives for having the audacity to not want to stay in Afghanistan forever. Her behavior has been an embarrassment.
Luckily, Liz Cheney has a number of primary challengers in her home state of Wyoming next year, and she stands a serious chance of losing.
Those primary challengers, such as Rep. Chuck Gray, have pledged never to lead America to disaster like Liz and her father did.
Liz Cheney may soon be gone from the halls of power, but the catastrophic legacy of her family will unfortunately remain for a long time.
