"I have been fighting for 17 years. I am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders, I demand accountability." – Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller on the failures in Afghanistan that led to American servicemen dying. pic.twitter.com/JPH3nTctrG

Firing a marine for saying that the senior leaders at the State Department and Pentagon should take responsibility for evacuating the country before evacuating the people in the country is alpha.
“Oh, you think we didn’t plan this well? So how about this plan? You’re fired.”
A lieutenant colonel in the US Marine Corps said he was relieved of duty after voicing frustration with American leaders for the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, insisting officials take responsibility for their failures.
In a video posted to his Facebook account on Thursday night, Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller unloaded on the country’s military and political leaders for their repeated blunders while exiting America’s longest war, saying that “none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying ‘We messed this up.’”
“We have a secretary of defense that testified in Congress in May that the Afghan national security force could withstand the Taliban advance,” he said, citing a prediction that proved radically mistaken after the militants overran all of Afghanistan in a matter of days earlier this month.
“I want to say this very strongly. I have been fighting for 17 years. I am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders: I demand accountability.”
Scheller argued that the evacuation from Bagram air base – once the US’ largest military installation in Afghanistan – was a serious error, noting that no high-level officials have acknowledged the premature pull-out.
“I’m not saying we’ve got to be in Afghanistan forever, but I am saying: Did any of you throw your rank on the table and say ‘Hey, it’s a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic airbase, before we evacuate everyone’? Did anyone do that?”
However, less than 24 hours after the video went live – racking up tens of thousands of shares on Facebook alone while going viral on other platforms – Scheller said the clip landed him in hot water, and that he had been “relieved for cause based on a lack of trust and confidence.”
Oh, you demand accountability?
Well, you’d better demand it at the unemployment office, because you’re fired.
Anyone who questions the government is unpatriotic.
Our boys fought hard to bring women’s rights to Afghanistan, to do Democracy, to bring down the patriarchy and Sharia Law and promote gay anal rimjobs. Our troops fought valiantly, so that every girl in Afghanistan would have a right to have sex with as many men as she wanted, including double penetration and gang-bangs.
Those men gave their lives for the rainbow flag.
How dare you question their anal patriotism?
People got their limbs blown off.
Dan Crenshaw lost his eye so that Afghan college girls could do ass-to-mouth and get facials in the dorm room.
How dare you?
Think of Congressman Crenshaw’s eye.
You know what the first thing patriot Crenshaw said when he woke up and was told his eye had been blown out?
He said: “as long as at least one Afghan college girl getting her master’s degree in gender studies is able to feel two men’s penises rubbing against each other in the skin between her vagina and anus, while a third man is jacking off into her mouth, then this was worth it. I will happily lose my eye for the freedom of our values.”
It’s like Crenshaw said: if you question Israel, Jews will put you on a list and destroy your future.
This is what America is about. It’s who we are.
People are dying right now in the name of Israel’s security. That’s who we are.
Show a little respect.
