Thanks to President Joe Biden, the American military, the American people and America’s allies are humiliated.
Due to Biden’s utter incompetence, the Taliban took over Afghanistan after our involvement in the region for 20 years, the Taliban now possess billions of dollars in U.S. equipment, Americans are stranded in the region and the Afghan military has been decimated. All thanks to Joe Biden.
Now, the Taliban is rubbing it in our faces.
Over the weekend, the Taliban released propaganda photographs, showing their “elite” team in U.S. issued equipment, mocking the iconic World War Two photo of United States marines raising the American flag on Iwo Jima. In their recently released photo, the Taliban force is mocking the image with their own flag.
“The Taliban’s Badri 313 Battalion released a collection of propaganda footage this past week,” the Daily Mail reported on Sunday. “Among the collection was the recreation of the famed 1945 World War II picture of soldiers raising the American flag during the Battle of Iwo Jima”

It also appears that the Taliban is directly mocking Biden for his love of ice cream.

According to Fox News the Taliban in the photo are “carrying U.S. and U.S. ally-made weapons”:
The Badri 313 special unit differs from typical Taliban fighters as they are made to look more like U.S. soldiers, with camouflage, combat boots, and body armor. They also carry M4 carbines and drive armored Humvees, the Sinclair Broadcasting Group reported.
“This has only been recently revealed, is a militia, a special operations unit of the Taliban that is being deployed not just in Kabul but elsewhere as well that has provided a completely different picture. No more just the sons of farmers and shepherds, a ragtag bunch of religious terrorists, but a special operations group comparable, perhaps, with the best in the world,” senior editor and television anchor at India Today, Shiv Aroor said in relation to the elite Taliban.
“With the Taliban now in power, there is every reason to believe the militia could grow in strength,” Aroor added. “Expect to see much more of the Badri 313 in the weeks and months ahead.”
