One of the most stunning things about Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan is that he left behind over $80 billion in military equipment, including vehicles and weapons.
Trump has a plan, not that anyone in the Biden administration will listen.
Trump thinks we should retaliate if the Taliban doesn’t return the equipment.
The Hill reports:
Trump: US should take military action if Taliban don’t return billions in equipment
Former President Trump on Monday said the U.S. should respond with “unequivocal Military force” if the Taliban refuse 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.

If any American is killed with these weapons, that will be on Joe Biden.
