This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

I do not care if it collapsed.   I do believe in the will of the people, and the people there wanted the Taliban in charge, plain and simple.  If billions of dollars of the best equipment and training for 20 years can not get it done, it was never going to be done.  My problem now, is the name beatches who fled with not a iota of fight are coming to the USA now.  People keep talking about who the USA has let immigrate, well in years long past, there was no social safety net for immigrants or others.  If you couldnt make it, you left rather than starve.  Now we give anyone who wants it money, food, and housing.  We are not bringing in the people that drive economies, or at least not that drive them upwards.   Enjoy the decline.
Not the point, ogg, though you're not wrong.

The fact is that the regime insists they totally didn't expect this, and now the generals are directly contradicting them.

Internal schisms within the regime are always ripe for opportunities.

   I am sure they all expected it, and are now engaging in pre planned political theatre.  Generals are more political than actual politicians.
I don't think they expected things to come unglued like this. And it lends credence to the theory that there's a behind-the-scenes civil war going on between various factions of the regime.

Anyone heard from Heels-Up recently?

I think she commented on the border horse "controversey". Then slunk back into whatever hole she hides in.
That's because she thought they said "border whores" and was afraid they were importing competition...

Alexa, play 'Dance A Little Sidestep' for me.

Jesus. I have to admit, my personal favorite in this article is Gen. Milley talking about how 'I don’t discuss exactly what my conversations are with a sitting president in the Oval Office.' Unless it's with China, right Milley? Fucker.

Greetings!

Yeah, General Milley is an absolutely worthless fucking toad. I think he's also a slimy, smarmy, political Grima Wormtongue figure that is faithless, duplicitous, and treasonous. He should have been at least fired long ago. Perhaps he should have been thoroughly investigated for his fucking conversations with the Communist RED CHINESE???? He should be lined up on a wall and fucking shot for treason. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

  Oh I think they did.  I think they planned to use the crisis thus created, and not let it go to waste.   Generals disagreeing I get though, they figure they will still want a job when Biden is gone in a year or so.

Looks like San Fran Nan is throwing in the towel on the 3.5 trillion spendapalooza 'infrastructure' bill. At least, they're going to have to pare it back: https://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/1447959706824323079

I can't imagine how this could've gone so wrong. I mean, hectoring Manchin and chasing Sinema into bathrooms and onto planes? Genius!

LOL. Stupid fucks. And the Republicans aren't giving them a scrap of cover. Even the RINOs are talking shit.

  ounce of cover....fuck that.  I am ready for them to go back to the founding fathers methods of vigorous debate and for these shitheads to beat one another with canes, have duels, and fucking shoot one another.    I want to see some real disagreement, and not whatever this theatre is where the worthless shits all "disagree strongly" and then go to the same parties, eat the same cheese, drink the same wine, and get paid by the same lobbyists.

See, I think those days are fast-a-coming.

Part of it, of course, is due to the shakeups in GOP-land due to the Tea Party and later Trump. But it's MORE distinct when you consider some of the newer Democrats, who are hardcore radicals. They'll happily reap the benefits of largess, but they won't want to share with their erstwhile opponents.

Remember, the narrative is not that we're wrong, but that we're evil and should be purged for the good of everyone.
