A Combat Veteran’s Perspective on Afghanistan

“I believe President Biden’s disordered withdrawal from Afghanistan will go down in history as one of the most tragic failures of leadership ever committed by an American President. In my opinion, his pathetic and senseless decisions were criminal acts of gross negligence at best and manslaughter at worst. If the reports about giving the information about American citizens to the Taliban are true, which they seem to be, then treason was committed on his watch. Some may call this a harsh judgment, but I believe President Biden’s appeasement and acquiescence in the face of the enemy will constitute one of the greatest acts of treachery against the American citizenry in the history of our great nation.”

Joe Biden violated the military’s longstanding promise to ‘never leave a fallen comrade.’ This is a very simple, but powerful tenet of the Army's Warrior Ethos.

When American citizens are in harm’s way around the world, the military should be the last to leave, not the first. This is why the United States Marines bravely guard our International Embassies. After sending all civilians to safety, their boots are the last thing to touch the ground during a perilous evacuation. That’s not what happened here. The President left thousands of American citizens behind, all of them in imminent danger of being tortured or killed by enemy forces.

So, where is HOPE to be found after this unmitigated disaster? This may sound strange, but I do find HOPE, in spite of President Biden’s failures. Nature teaches that it’s always darkest before the dawn. The end of the book of Daniel provides a blueprint for us by showing that amidst overwhelmingly difficult circumstances, “the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action.” LINK = Daniel 11:32

Army Special Forces saying includes a directive that all Green Berets are charged to wade into uncertainty and prevail. My friends, this epitomizes our spiritual DNA. We are over-comers and were born for battle. Let us never quit until we have, like King David of old, “fulfilled the Purposes of God in his generation.” LINK = Acts 13:36

Pray with me:

Heavenly Father - You have seen every single sacrifice in war-torn Afghanistan. Every man. Every woman. Every child. Every casualty over the last 20 years. Not one moment in battle has escaped Your attention. Please comfort the families of those who lost loved ones and HEAL the wounds of the warriors who experienced them. May we all resist bitterness toward those who have acted disgracefully. We leave the bringing of Justice to You.

Lord, please bring every American citizen and our allies home safely. We ask that You RESTORE the fractured places in our military community, heal every broken heart, and bring restoration to the land of Afghanistan, as only You can.

We know You-LORD are saving thousands of Afghans, revealing Christ to them. Please cause this to continue and intensify. Let Afghanistan become a land of REVIVAL! We ask for hundreds of millions of Muslims to be BORN AGAIN there and elsewhere. Pour Your Love out on them. LINK = Joel 2:25-29

And we thank You for America’s REVIVAL and Awakening. Restore us to Your Divine Purposes and the true Greatness of Servitude. Make us a loud and clear trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Use us greatly for the Harvest of the ages!

We ask all of this in Christ’s Name. AMEN and Amen!

Onward then ye people, join our happy throng

Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.

Glory laud and HONOR unto Christ The KING

This through countless ages men and Angels SING!


Remember that The LORD will fight our battles!

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ

2Corinthians 10:3-5


LORD, help us to BE Christ-like in ALL that we SAY and in ALL that we DO!
