So, Are the British Finally Reconciled to the Debacle Their Policy Produced in Afghanistan? Are You Kidding?
Sept. 8 , 2021 (EIRNS)—The latest Rumpelstiltskin-style rant by advocates of the British Empire, comes from “a highly decorated British war hero,” Sgt. Trevor Coult, who—the Washington Examiner reports—
“served for 21 years in Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan, where he was involved in 178 enemy engagements and survived three bomb blasts. The Queen awarded him one of the United Kingdom’s highest honors, the Military Cross, for saving allied lives during an ambush. Bush also awarded him a presidential citation during a White House dinner.”
Coult told the Washington Examiner: “Biden is the most incompetent President in the history of the United States. He has befriended terrorists. The White House is not a friend to the West. It’s a danger while he is President.” He said he had spoken to numerous British generals and Special Operations officers about Biden, and they all agreed. “We believe Biden is more of a threat to the West than the Taliban ever was. Without a shadow of a doubt. He betrayed us,” Coult said. He and his British military pals were “absolutely shocked” at Biden, arguing that he had destroyed 20 years of their “work” (work?) in less than 24 hours.
The Washington Examiner then appropriately connected Coult’s rant with Tony Blair’s earlier attack on the Afghan pullout. “These comments come after former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Europe and NATO should prepare to act when the U.S. is unwilling.”
(Perhaps an insight into Coult’s mentality is that he was “raised in Belfast during the troubles,” and both his parents served in the military. His first deployment was as a commander in Northern Ireland, according to his website. One might infer that he agrees with the recent British media attacks on Biden as being “Irish.”)
