Can poppy not be used in industrial production of pharmaceuticals. Seems weird their populace has knowledge of growing such a compelling resource but they can't legally monetize it...

Yeah, it's totally the US that's raping and murdering Afghan women right now, not the Taliban, who-- if you're being logically consistent- just want to have their own sovereign nation and elections how they see fit.

GET. THE. FUCK. OUT.

No, it was US troops, contractors, and the Afghan military doing that for the last 20 years, now only the Taliban will be doing it

Unfortunately, stealing all of Afghanistan's infrastructure money will make life much worse for Afghan women than it needed to be.

How in the world, given the Taliban's record, would you think that they would put that money to use for the people of Afghanistan?

Oh wait, they won't need to spend it on military, we just gave them all they need. So yea, maybe they could have spent that money on infrastructure for civilians.

They’re awful fundamentalists, but they’re not braindead. They have to run the country and the economy, which includes building/maintaining infrastructure and some degree of popular support. They’re already working with India to continue infrastructure projects that began under the previous government.

it's also mind boggling to me that we have no idea what equipment is now in the hands of the Taliban.

Like, the government can audit any joe schmoe and that schmoe better hope they have all their receipts for the last 7 years, but we have no idea how many MRAPS the Taliban just won?

^^ How's it a stretch? A would-be bomber was arrested in DC last week and Afghanistan was on his list of Things That Are Wrong With America. Meanwhile, Mo Brooks (US Senator, January 6 guest speaker, name-taking-ass-kicking advocate) thinks the man from North Carolina may be on to something and Tucker Carlson is going on about an invasion of brown people.

I mean, at any given time, there are probably literally thousands of people who would take a shot at the president (or other politician) if they had the opportunity. Lots of crazies out there.

Nobody gives a shit about Afghanistan.

I mean informed people with humanitarian concerns clearly care, and the people left to deal with the carnage and aftermath certainly care, but the average American isn't preoccupied with it, and this won't be a part of the news cycle for much longer.

^ it's gross to see. Collateral damage from drone bombings increased 300x when trump admin changed rules of engagement. It was barely reported in the news.

Trump freed a Taliban leader and 5000 prisoners (drastically more than we ever had at gitmo), and it was clouded by election news and other scandals.

CNN's ratings have tanked since Biden has been in office, so their most recent go-to stories have been COVID destroying the South, and 72 hours worth of hurricane Ida catastrophe porn.

The average American assumes Afghanistan/Iraq/Iran are all the same people/places.

This unquestionably has been a horrific look for Biden's admin, but people will move on to the next shiny object--just like they did when Trump drew a hurricane cone around Alabama.

I’m not playing dumb

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Democratic_Party_presidential_candidates

there is no excitement over someone who didn’t even make it to one primary election in 2020

it’s hilarious to me that you think there is, though

I think Dems would obviously prefer Kamala over the next republican candidate but I don't think that's what rjr means.

Many that voted for Biden were/are very lukewarm on him, but only a very small percentage of those are pining for Harris.

Just hoping a few colleagues actually do as they say and quit. With demand lower gives me more of a reason to be there, and honestly would rather weed out the douchy non-vax people

My only concern is there are SO MANY anti-vax people at work that if they were all to stick to their guns and quit, we probably couldn't operate. It's already been challenging. Certainly, they won't all quit, though, but a few key positions quitting could be a significant temporary setback. Not saying it isn't worth it long-term. Bring it on!

I doubt they’ll Quit

But a bunch of jobs opening up that were once held by angry white men (disproportionately) could be a good opportunity

Several nurses I know quit. I feel like there will be at least some people sticking to their guns.

However, a large majority of anti-vaxxers are the same people who can't afford to not work, so Biden has them by the cojones.

pretty good response to that report:

" Removing unvaccinated nurses from hospitals where they can transmit COVID-19 to cancer patients who lack functioning immune systems (something that has happened multiple times according to physicians I know) seems like it *should* be an intended goal of the vaccine mandate."
