It would not be a stretch to think the illegitimate president is one of the largest arms dealers on Earth. Thanks to his ridiculously criminal actions in Afghanistan, the Taliban will soon be in possession of enough U.S. weapons, vehicles, and intelligence to create a formidable army.
But hey, no more mean tweets!
The U.S. military is leaving behind 75,000 vehicles, 600,000 weapons and 208 airplanes/helicopters in Afghanistan as the Taliban takes control of the country, according to the watchdog group Open the Books.
“We’ve made the Taliban into a major U.S. arms dealer for the next decade,” said Adam Andrzejewski, CEO & founder of Open the Books. “They now control 75,000 military vehicles. This is about 50,000 tactical vehicles, 20,000 Humvees they control about 1,000 mine-resistant vehicles, and even about 150 armored personnel carriers.”
The worst part is the Taliban will sell many of these weapons and vehicles to other countries, who will use American technology to make their own weapons equal to or better than ours.
Andrzejewski said his organization “found a Federal Audit that detailed up to $200 million worth of drones that had disappeared,” adding that “we don’t know where 600,000 weapons are within the country.”
Two hundred million dollars worth of drones, gone. We laughed at Obama when he was droning American citizens overseas, but eventually our own drones may be wiping out American citizens on U.S. soil. Well, I guess the fact that Trump is out of office is certainly worth it.
