"And typically the uk govt are being difficult about accepting refugees because we don't want to 'set a precedent'."

Because that goes against the narrative of "illegal immigrants", something everyone agrees we shouldn't allow whilst far too many amounts of us simultaneously lump asylum seekers in with. :(

I don't think the UK had any choice but to pull out if the US were, and feel very sad that our government isn't even going to criticize the US because we need a trade deal with them because of Brexit, and also the whole inevitable "illegal immigrants" being wrapped up in why so many people voted for Brexit.

Someone needs to introduce Delta to the Taliban. I daresay none of them are vaccinated

Unfortunately I suspect most of the country which aren't the Taliban are vaccinated either. :(

Will be interesting to see how many fall for the absolute bollocks that was Biden's speech last night...

And this is interesting on the dialogue between allies on the speed/scale of the withdrawal:

Probably a similar number to those falling for Trump's speech a month ago:

You’re forgetting who Biden’s preaching to. The world-wise and cosmopolitan US public, who probably couldn’t point out Afghanistan on a map if you asked them to. All they want is their kids not to die in a far off land and US tax dollars spent at home.

It’s only the intelligentsia and the political classes that have their proverbials in a twist. Biden just played from the Trump playbook and scored big with US voters.
