Liberals hate America. they don’t want a border wall with Mexico that would stem the flow of illegals into this country. But, they are more than willing to fund fences around the world.
Now, Biden has killed 52,000 jobs over his edict that killed the Keystone Pipeline, but now they are pushing for a pipeline that will benefit the Taliban.
Killing the Keystone Pipeline forces Canada to ship their oil through existing pipelines that will be grabbed by China.
Commission to The Big Guy?
But Biden does want the Taliban to get a pipeline. Remember, the Taliban is responsible for killing thousands of Americans. If you think this is typical liberal hypocrisy then you are absolutely right.
Biden not only wants it but he has brokered a meeting between the Taliban and the Turkmenistan government for a Trans-Afghanistan pipeline to bring Turkmen gas across Afghanistan and Pakistan to India.
If this sounds familiar, it is.
Before the 9/11 attack, now-Special Envoy, Zalmay Khalilzad, sought to make it with the Taliban. At the time he was a consultant for the Unocal Corporation.
It was a bad idea at the time, and now it’s even worse. Turkmenistan is ruled by a despot and its citizens are more restricted than North Koreans are.
The pipeline would enrich the elite but the people will get scraps…..if they’re lucky.
To promote the export of Turkmen gas is to entrench its regime even further. Part of the deal is then paying the Taliban protection money or transit fees for the pipeline transiting Afghan territory. Not only would this undermine the elected Afghanistan government even further, but it would also reward the Taliban for insurgency to the tune of tens of millions of dollars each month. Who needs Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers when the State Department has crafted a scheme to reward the Taliban beyond their wildest dreams?
One issue here is Khalilzad’s penchant for using diplomacy as a stepping stone to cut side deals. But the other issue is U.S. strategic interests. Perhaps a misunderstanding of the Taliban agenda was an excuse 20 years ago. It should not be one now.
If the Biden administration says no to pipeline jobs in the Midwest, it should not then turn around and help enrich the Taliban to ship Turkmen gas to the Indian Ocean. It is time for Secretary of State Antony Blinken to call his envoy, end this hypocrisy, and stop coddling some of the world’s most anti-American movements.
When are the Democrats going to do something for Americans?
So far Biden has enriched Russia, China, the Taliban, and illegal aliens.
