What a dope.
Back on July 21, anti-Trumper Gen. Mark Milley was touting the Afghanistan government’s ability to prevent a Taliban takeover of the country.

Less than four weeks later the Taliban is in complete control of the country.
Milley never saw it coming. He was more focused on white rage and diversity exercises.

The UPI reported:

The United States’ top military leaders on Wednesday touted Afghanistan’s abilities to prevent the Taliban from taking over as the militant terrorist group has made territorial advances amid the United States’ withdrawal from the war-torn country.

Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters during a press conference with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin that despite the narrative that the Taliban is winning, the Afghan Security Forces “have the capacity to sufficiently fight and defend their country.”

“A negative outcome, a Taliban automatic military takeover, is not a foregone conclusion,” he said. “We will continue to monitor the situation closely and make adjustments as necessary.”

The United States began its drawdown from the Middle Eastern country in early May, which is at 95% complete with a deadline of Aug. 31. Amid the withdrawal, the Taliban has been making territorial gains.
