8. This is huge.

Along with the child tax credit payments, Biden is moving children and families out of poverty and food insecurity. Two months from now when Americans have forgotten the Afghanistan debacle (I guess every few generations need a Viet Nam), those checks and bigger grocery carts will leave fewer Americans going to bed on an empty stomach.

Afghanistan is Bush/Cheney production. Obama nailed Bin Laden, and the mission was over, but the neo-cons and the Unocal barons wanted their pipeline, so we "surged" troops. We can no more force western democracy on the Islamic Afghanis than we could force it on the Republic of Vietnam. This was always going to be the ending.

TFG's "deal" was surface veneer only. Had Biden honored the May 1 withdrawal, the end would be no different. In the end, it is Biden bringing our troops home. It is Biden working to fill the bellies of Americans.
