Justin Trudeau “expecting” the Taliban to “step up”

The disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has led to some strange statements from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Perhaps one of the most ridiculous of those was that Trudeau was “expecting” the Taliban to ”step up” when it came to allowing those who wanted to escape the country to leave.

That request, after 20 years of war against the West, seems unlikely.

On yesterday’s Rebel News DAILY Livestream, David Menzies and Sheila Gunn Reid tore into the prime minister, and his minister of foreign affairs, Marc Garneau, who suggested that Canada take a “wait and see” approach to recognizing the Taliban as Afghanistan’s government — an approach the Liberals quickly shifted after Conservative leader Erin O’Toole announced that if he were to win the election, his government would not recognize the Taliban.

Speaking about these crazy claims from the Liberals, David Menzies said:

Oh, international law. Gee, do you think a terrorist organization might — just might, Sheila — violate international law? I think that is the very being of a terrorist organization: to violate the law. International, municipal, regional or national.

And this business about being inclusive? Umm, do we have any estimates of, oh I don’t know, how many people of the Afghanistan trans community are going to be part of this government?

At Rebel News, we tell the other side of the story. We follow the facts wherever they may lead — even if that conflicts with the official narrative of the establishment. We see that the mainstream media pretends to be impartial, but they increasingly behave like political parties. They don't admit their own political bias, and they pretend to be neutral providers of the news when they are anything but. At Rebel News we fearlessly take on that “Media Party”. We tell it like it is, and we examine the world from a different perspective — a side of the story you won't get anywhere else. Unlike most of our competitors, we don't take money from any government. We depend on viewers like you to crowdfunded our journalism. It’s harder to run a company that way. But it’s the only way to be free from editorial interference behind the scenes
