Firefight at Kabul airport ensnares US troops, leaves Afghan solider dead

The chaos in Afghanistan continues to worsen with each passing day, and according to Reuters, a firefight broke out at the Kabul airport Monday as Afghan guards and Western forces engaged in an exchange of gunfire with an unidentified group of assailants.

Reuters noted that according to CNN, a sniper was known to have fired at a group of Afghan guards from outside the north gate of the airport, where throngs of individuals desperate to leave Kabul have been subjected to threats, violence, stampedes, and oppressive heat.

A report from a German military official indicated that U.S. and German forces were among those entangled in the episode that took place amid the ongoing effort to evacuate thousands of American citizens and Afghan allies as the Aug. 31 deadline for the withdrawal of said forces from the country.

Though officials from the Pentagon ultimately confirmed that no Western military members were injured in the incident, one Afghan solider was killed, and three others were injured as a result of the firefight, according to The Blaze.

The wounded Afghans were reportedly taken to a field hospital for treatment, and NATO officials on site later reported that the situation had been brought under control, the Reuters report added.

Tensions are rising as the deadline for completing the troop withdrawal and evacuations rapidly approaches, and despite a Tuesday request from CIA Director William Burns, Taliban leader Abdul Ghani Baradar said there will be no extension granted, as Reuters reported separately.

President Joe Biden, under intense fire for his handling of the evacuation and troop withdrawal, said on Sunday that the process of helping Americans and Afghan allies leave the country has been and will continue to be “hard and painful” and that much could still go very wrong.

As Reuters noted, even Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) had to admit that it now appears “very unlikely” that the evacuation of all Americans still in Afghanistan could be completed in the time remaining, leading to an extremely precarious situation for the president and his team.

If Schiff’s prediction is correct, the consequences for Biden’s presidency may indeed be justifiably dire, with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) declaring last week, “If we leave one American behind… then Joe Biden, in my view, as committed a high crime and misdemeanor under the Constitution and should be impeached.”

Biden’s Socialist/Communist agenda of open borders and influx of Muslims coincides with the Obama/Soros agenda. Obama’s father was a Muslim. Pelosi and Socialist George Soros had several Resistance Conferences against Trump to regain their Socialist Power. Another reason Kamala Harris acts so unconcerned about it all. Her father was a Socialist professor. They’re pushing their 4 to 5 trillion dollar debt for some Social programs. Funds go to help foreigners, who are getting many free benefits. They’ve housed, bused and flown illegals across the U.S. on tax dollars, college, too. Reports share Americans in Afghanistan were to pay 2,000 to be evacuated, while Biden’s administration had 500 million to evacuate about 30,000 Afghanis. Biden knew what he was doing, even though he did have brain surgery years ago.

Well if he did, in fact, have brain surgery they must have removed 3/4 of his brain and left the other 1/4 full of holes, because the crap he’s doing comes from a mindless idiot.

After leaving my previous job 11 months ago, I’ve had some good luck to learn about this website which was a life-saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their house. My latest paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $71600… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet.

Thanks A lot Here…………… https://www.paybuzz1.com
