Heartbreaking videos are surfacing on Twitter; these videos show desperate Afghan mothers and fathers hoisting their babies over barbwire in order to hand them to both U.S. and U.K. troops that are stationed inside of the Kabul airport.
The scene is eerily similar to Operation Babylift; this was an operation by the U.S. and their allies during the Vietnam War which aimed to evacuate Vietnamese babies in the city of Saigon. They say a picture is worth a thousands words, but this video here is worth a million.
Take a look:
The chaos & fear of people is a testament to the international community’s role in AFG’s downfall & their subsequent abandonment of Afghan people. The future for AFG has bn decided for its people without its people’s vote & now they live at the mercy of a terrorist group. #Kabul pic.twitter.com/k4bevc2eHE

Although most of the videos shows troops being handed the babies, the New York Post reported that some mothers were even tossing their babies over the barriers; this led to some of the babies landing on the razor sharp barb wire.
Another video shows a baby being passed person to person in order for him to be handed to U.K. troops too. Most of the women were shouting “please save my baby!”
People are so desperate to escape the #Taliban that they’re passing babies and kids forward to the gate at #Kabul airport. #kabulairport #AfghanEvac pic.twitter.com/6NSlIffrD1

Biden Declared Troop Withdrawal in Afghanistan Couldn’t Have Gone Any Better
In an interview on ABC News, Biden declared that chaos in Afghanistan was unavoidable; he also declared that a better method of withdrawing our troops wasn’t possible.
Moreover, Biden said that nobody has been killed and evacuations are running smoothly. This is far from the truth, considering 12 Afghans have already died outside of Kabul airport.
In an interview with Fox News, Trump stated that Biden should’ve evacuated all U.S. citizens and Afghan personnel (who were used by U.S. troops as translators, interpreters and as intelligence operatives) before he just withdrew the troops.
Biden’s actions have resulted in over 10,000 Americans being stranded in Afghanistan without anyway of reaching the Kabul airport; this is due to the fact the Taliban has blocked off roads which lead to the airport.
The images of babies being handed off to U.S. and U.K. troops, along with the videos of young Afghan males plunging from their deaths after clinging onto a C-17, are even being shown on liberals news networks. It appears Biden’s really in hot water now.
Flashback to Operation Babylift in Vietnam
As some of you may already know, this isn’t the first time in American military history that babies were giving to U.S. troops in order for them to escape death in their own country.
On April 3-26 of 1975, Operation Babylift was conducted by the U.S. military in order to evacuate babies and children during the fall of Saigon. It’s estimated that over 3,300 Vietnamese babies were taken to the United States during this time.
The military also conducted Operation New Life which evacuated over 110,00 Vietnamese to the United States and their allies.
As of right now, there are close to 7,000 Afghans that have been evacuated from Afghanistan. However, that number should rise significantly within the next couple of months.
