    Default FOX News Poll:Voters Think the Country is Less United Under Biden

    Fox News Poll: Voters think the country is less united under Biden
    By a 54-37 percent margin, Americans think the country is less united under Biden rather than more so

    Dana Blanton By Dana Blanton | Fox News

    President Biden used the word "unity" eight times in his inauguration speech, but voters say the country is heading in the opposite direction on his watch.

    By a 54-37 percent margin, they think the country is less united under Biden rather than more so.”

    Yup, n' those of us with brains, (or one functional brain cell in my case), know this Republic is circling the drain. Very sad. Only "we the people" can save this place.

    Biden is a joke and people are catching on. The Dems are over playing their hand.

    A Fox News poll? Let me guess, it was conducted among Fox News faithful through the website, emails, etc. Now, let's hear one from MSNBC.

    Indeed.

    Every crisis that Bloody Biden has faced is of his own making and he has failed with every one of them.

    He is under water, down to 39% support in some polls.

    The border crisis that Biden has caused will be addressed.

    Perhaps he can be impeached...three times.

    Americans and Afghans left behind, hostages, torture and beheadings, all on Bloody Biden’s head.

    Exactly how is Biden responsible for a suicide bomber? Equipment is always left behind in an evacuation. It is sabotaged but cheaper to leave it than ship it somewhere else.

    The botched evacuation, those 13 American soldiers were alive when President Trump was in office. Evacuating the military before the civilians.

    The evacuation was done in a frenzied attempt to meet an artificial deadline so that Bloody Biden could crow on the anniversary of 911.

    That’s why the 80 billion dollars of weapons were left behind...for the ego of this bloody and dangerous buffoon in the White House.

    Total contradiction above. Any life lost is tragic - but to do what they did in an unstable, war-torn country with 13 casualties? That's actually remarkable.

    Oh, and to actually get that equipment out of Afghanistan would have cost many more lives.

    By the way, the 80 million is a completely fabricated figure that has become a right-wing talking point, since the right doesn't mind lying. It's actually about a quarter of that, and most of it is equipment....not "weapons."

    And of course you are wrong...as usual.

    Even after the troop withdrawal, the US has left equipment worth billions in Afghanistan.

    As per a Government Accountability Office report, the US purchased and provided 75,898 vehicles and 208 aircraft to the afghan army and security forces between 2003 and 2016.

    According to Forbes, these are the estimated vehicle costs:

    Armoured personnel carriers like the M113A2 cost $170,000 each, and recent M577A2 post carrier purchases cost $333,333 each.

    The cost of mine-resistant vehicles ranges between $412,000 and $767,000. However, the total price tag could range from $382 million to $711 million.

    Recovery vehicles such as the ‘truck, wrecker’ range in price from $168,960 for the base model to $880,674 for super strength versions.

    Also, the cost of a medium-range tactical vehicle, which includes a 5-tonne cargo and general transport truck, was $67,139.

    The MTV heavy vehicle family ranged in price from $235,500 to $724,820. The cost of cargo trucks used to transport aeroplanes is $800,865.

    The price of an ambulance ranged from $37,943 to $142,918 with the majority at $96,466, cargo prices start at $104,682.

    The average price for a utility Humvee was $91,429.

    The 12,000-pound troop transport version, on the other hand, can cost up to $329,000.

    Fast attack combat vehicles cost $69,400, and passenger motor vehicles were $65,500.

    These are examples of light tactical vehicles.

    According to military databases, all-terrain four-wheel vehicles can cost up to $42,273.

    The Taliban has now seized Black Hawk helicopters and A-29 Super Tucano attack planes earlier this month.

    The cost of a Black Hawk helicopter can reach $ 21 million.

    The US ordered a total of 20 A-29 Super Tucano attack planes for $427 million in 2013 or $21.3 million per plane.

    Other types of specialised helicopters can cost up to $37 million per unit.

    As per the report by GAO, the US has provided at least 600,000 infantry weapons, including M16 rifles, 162,000 pieces of communication equipment, and 16,000 night-vision goggle devices to Afghan forces since 2003.

    As per Forbes, the sights on night-vision sniper rifle scopes can cost up to $35,000, but the majority cost between $5,000 and $10,000

    It’s 83 BILLION, not 83 million.

    That's a lot of words to say that you agree that the $80 million figure is incredibly inflated, and that MOST of what was left wasn't weaponry.

    I just started a thread on it. We left nothing sophisticated behind, and demilitarized what we had access to (most of it).

    Focus...it's 83 BILLION with a "B".

    The list is almost a full page.

    Black Hawk helicopters and A-29 Super Tucano attack planes are not sophisticated weapons?

    Good grief.

    Get a clue.
