I'm gonna be fucking ill.

*goes to burn her belts*

On the plus side you can see a picture of Kid Rock - most recently singing about how his generation didn't have participation trophies because he's having a boomer meltdown - in the background as Trump is given a literal participation trophy.

You can't buy comedy like that.

Look Suu, you're just going to have to admit that hurting the precious feelings of:

White supremacists
Theocratic fascists
TERFs
Incels
Nickelback fans

Are all illegal.

I think the reading PMs thing came out a bit after The Commander's time.

Possibly.  That was 2004/2005, IIRC.

Yeah, the Commander was around briefly when I very first arrived, but disappeared not long after, and the Hugh stuff was a little further down the line, but not by much.

I mostly remember because late 2004/early 2005 was my first year at Uni, so a lot of things from that time and when I wasn't blackout drink are imprinted on my brain.

Haqqani is assigned as the minister of the interior and Yacoob as minister of war.

It's pretty clear the hardliners are in charge of the Taliban regime, with appointments like this.

Get down with the kids and join Tiktok instead. Their ghost stories are better than FBs too.

Parts are pretty major, most modern weapons systems are pretty complex and keeping the parts in-company only is a good way to ensure an ongoing revenue stream for arms contractors. No doubt you can finagle something to tide a system over, if you have enough engineers look at the problem, but since it's a way to ensure revenue for companies, they tend to be rather creative in making that difficult to achieve.

I suspect the Pentagon was counting on a last minute change of heart from the White House, even though their hands were tied by Trump.

And besides, do they really care? The top brass will be going on to defence contractor jobs, which is notoriously unconcerned with the military having to replace stuff and indeed is rather keen on the idea, and the accountants probably ran a cost/benefit analysis and figured that dumping the stuff was probably the cheaper option than maintaining, securing and disposing of it. The Taliban won't exactly be able to order replacement parts, so they're probably not too concerned in the long run.

And basically the agreement Trump made with the Taliban was a peace deal. While the US could violate it, in theory US troops aren't allowed to attack the Taliban except in self-defence, and the Taliban have ordered their people to steer clear of remaining American forces. So unless someone does something stupid and there's an obvious fingerprint on it, like the suicide bombing the other week but with intel linking it to the Taliban, nothing will happen.
