According to a press report, Former President Trump has argued that the U.S. should not play nice with the Taliban.
He said the U.S. should respond with “unequivocal Military force” if the Taliban refuses to return the billions of dollars worth of military equipment that was left behind in Afghanistan or “at least bomb the hell out of” the hardware.
“Never in history has a withdrawal from war been handled so badly or incompetently as the Biden Administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. In addition to the obvious, ALL EQUIPMENT should be demanded to be immediately returned to the United States, and that includes every penny of the $85 billion dollars in cost,” Trump said in a statement.
“If it is not handed back, we should either go in with unequivocal Military force and get it, or at least bomb the hell out of it. Nobody ever thought such stupidity, as this feeble-brained withdrawal, was possible!” he added.
After the Afghan government fell to the Taliban, it was reported that billions in U.S. weaponry had been seized by the Taliban, including guns, cars, and numerous aircraft.
The aircraft are virtually useless without training, though their seizure likely gives the Taliban propaganda tools.
