Fox News’ The Five discussed President Biden’s recent meeting with President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday. Fox News host Jesse Watters said the meeting was proof that Biden would rather “be loved more than respected” because Putin got off with “no consequences.”

“The way I saw it, the Russians hack and Biden invite Putin to a summit and gives him a list of things he’s not allowed to hack? You gotta be kidding me!” said Watters. “No consequences, no deal, nothing concrete.” Watters was referring to the recent cyber attack that shut down international meat suppliers only weeks ago.

Instead, Biden would go on to tell reporters: “Putin’s innocent, just some criminals in Russia did it, we will see if he can stop it, calls it a constructive summit.” Meanwhile, Facebook named Russia it’s number one global threat when it comes to influence operations on the platform. The social media giant even named Yevgeny Prigozhin’s Internet Research Agency as a top bad actor. Prigozhin has a reportedly close relationship with Putin.

When a reporter asked the president, what makes him think Putin is going to stop Russia hacks, he responded: “Because Vladimir cares about world opinion and he wouldn’t want to hurt his popularity and the rest of the world.” To Watters, that sounded all too familiar.

“I’m thinking to myself that’s actually Biden, Biden cares about what the Russians think about us, the Chinese think about it and the Europeans think so he is not America first because he doesn’t want to be the bad guy even if being the bad guy is good for America,” Watters said. “He wants to be loved more than respected and that’s the key to the Biden doctrine.”

Taliban Holds Parade for 250 Newly Trained Soldiers with American-Made Weapons Left Behind

As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

On Sunday, Taliban forces held a very bone-chilling parade showing off their captured American-made armored military vehicles and Russian helicopters. The act was “a display that showed their ongoing transformation from an insurgent force to a regular standing army” writes CNN.

The Taliban are no longer terror insurgents fighting against American forces that had once freed Afghanistan from the Taliban. As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

The parade was part of a graduation for 250 newly trained Taliban soldiers, said defense ministry spokesman Enayatullah Khwarazmi. CNN reports, “The exercise involved dozens of US-made M117 armored security vehicles driving slowly up and down a major Kabul road with MI-17 helicopters patrolling overhead. Many soldiers carried American-made M4 assault rifles.”

Tragically, much of the weaponry taunted in the parade by Taliban forces were supplied by the United States to the American-backed government in Kabul during the past two decades. The equipment was to aid an Afghan national force and make it capable of fighting the Taliban.

As forces fled Afghanistan, some of the military equipment provided by western forces was flown into Central Asian Countries in an attempt to avoid it landing in the hands of the Taliban. It remains unclear exactly how much of what did end up in Taliban control is still operational.

American troops destroyed over 70 aircraft and dozens of armored vehicles, as well as disabled air defenses before flying out of Kabul during the frenetic evacuation. CNN reports “Taliban officials have said that pilots, mechanics and other specialists from the former Afghan National Army would be integrated into a new force, which has also started wearing conventional military uniforms in place of the traditional Afghan clothing normally worn by their fighters.”
