No nation, indeed!
The President of the United States, Aug. 31, 2021:
“Last night in Kabul, the United States ended 20 years of war in Afghanistan. The longest war in our history. We completed one of the biggest airlifts in history — with more than 120,000 people evacuated to safety. No nation has ever done anything like it.“
General Cornwallis, October 1781:
This afternoon at Yorktown, Virginia Colony, we ended five years of war. We forced an upstart colony to declare independence and become an inspiration to the world. No nation has ever done anything like it!
General Robert E. Lee, April 1865:
Today in a small Virginia crossroads, a breakaway confederacy built on enslaving our fellow man ended a war that killed more Americans than any other. No nation has ever done anything like it!
The president of France, June 1941:
Today in a railroad car in Compiègne, we ended 300 years of military glory after only six weeks of resistance. No once-great nation has ever done anything like it!
Flattering himself because no one else will, Joe Biden photoshops himself into glorious history. He invites comparison to the Berlin Airlift of 1948-1949. To defeat the Soviet blockade, our air force airlifted tons of food and supplies IN to beleaguered West Berlin rather than surrender this foothold of freedom to totalitarianism. The buck truly stopped at Truman’s desk.
Biden also suggests Winston Churchill’s evacuation of the British army from Dunkirk in 1940. Rather than surrender, the PM assured Britain could fight another day against fascist tyranny.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Joe Biden could not wrap his hands around Churchill’s brandy snifter.
