Our exit non-strategy from Afghanistan was a complete debacle and the political fallout is just beginning. But there are geopolitical consequences as well. On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve discuss how other world leaders are taking notice of our weak leadership and wondering how best to take advantage of it. China is surrounding Taiwan with warships, essentially daring us to defend the island country. Iran will no doubt be interested in purchasing from the Taliban all the weapons and vehicles the U.S. military left behind. And even now, some in the leftist media are calling out the Biden administration for its terrible handling of this. There's a lot more happening than just "Biden is bad" or "look at the people clinging to the plane."
As he does once a month, John travels to the studios of KYMS radio for an interview with Lee Lancaster. For our Sunday bonus podcast, we play John's appearance from this Friday where he and Lee discuss a variety of topics, including the attacks in France, the tenets of cancel culture, the history of how the media has become so corrupted, the need to stand up for the truth – even if it's unpopular, and of course, an update on the martyred church.
