24 July 2021 — Indian Punchline
US President Joe Biden (R) called Afghanistan President Ghani to assure US will defend his government, July 23, 2021
If only America’s presidents exercised the option to do muscle-flexing in the White House gym, the world would have been a calmer place.
This is the second time that a US president uses Afghanistan as punch bag. Thirteen years ago, Bill Clinton, chaffing under the steamy Monica Lewinsky affair, ordered the firing of some 100 cruise missiles right into Kandahar where late fugitive Taliban amir Mullah Omar was reportedly quartered. Clinton displayed that he could still put the Oval Office to use other than for venial sins.
