President Joe Biden said on Thursday that the US will respond with force as retaliation for the terrorist attack outside the Kabul airport. The deadly suicide bombings killed 13 US military personnel as well as dozens of Afghans. 18 troops received injuries as well.

‘We Will Not Forgive’

Biden appeared on camera to address the horrific attack on US troops, who were helping organize evacuation proceedings in Kabul.

“To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not forgive, we will not forget, we will hunt you down and make you pay. We will respond with force and precision at our time, at the place we choose, and at the moment of our choosing.”

Speaking from the White House, Biden said he already gave orders to military commanders. They will develop plans to strike assets, leaders, and facilities of ISIS-K, the Afghan affiliate of the Islamic State, or ISIS. The group reportedly will continue its planned attacks on US military personnel for the next few days.

More than 7,000 Evacuated

In addition, Biden also promised to continue evacuation efforts. He said that US military advisers remain committed to the withdrawal deadline of Tuesday.

However, he said that they will continue to work on getting people out of Afghanistan even after the deadline. At this time, the President said that more than 7,000 people already managed to leave Afghanistan. “We will not be deterred by terrorists. We will not let them stop our mission,” he said.

Meanwhile, security outside the airport is preventing locals and non-passport holders from reaching the airport. This endangers thousands of Afghan locals who worked with the US during the occupation, even as they were promised they can leave as well.

As of August 25, Taliban soldiers manning checkpoints going to Kabul airport are only allowing US passport and green card holders to pass through for evacuation. When US Embassy officials became overwhelmed with thousands of visa applications, the State Department had to ask applicants to stay home until they receive clearance to proceed to the airport. 

ISIS Claims Responsibility for Terrorist Attack

 According to the Associated Press, at least 60 Afghans died while more than 140 sustained injuries. Earlier, two suicide bombers struck a crowded area outside Hamid Karzai International Airport.

It’s an area where many locals gather in the hopes of booking a flight out. An attack occurred at a crowded checkpoint where US security officers conducted pre-flight search inspections. Another attack happened at the nearby Baron Hotel.

The terrorist organization ISIS claimed responsibility for what it called its “martyrdom attack” at Kabul airport. The group is notorious for going against both the US and the Taliban.

Biden’s national security team found out about the terrorist attack as they gathered for a White House meeting with Biden. As reports began to pour in, Biden canceled all scheduled activities of the day to confer with Defense and State Department officials.  

Prepare For More Attacks Until August 31

Earlier, Biden warned that everybody should expect more attacks as the August 31 deadline nears. However, the President stuck to his guns on the deadline, saying that the sooner they get Americans out, the better.

“Every day we’re on the ground is another day we know that ISIS-K is seeking to target the airport and attack both US and allied forces and innocent civilians,” he said in an earlier speech.

  • BBA says:

    I did not vote in what the US should do poll because it did not have the most logical option of reinstating the REAL POTUS in TRUMP and kicking EVERY one of these treasonous acting Marxist out!! This mess is only going to grow larger with this [email protected]$%ing idiot Biden leading the way. Now with mass amounts military personal vowing to not get the forced jab of poison and will probably be gone from active duty what happens when Biden’s mess grows very large from his incompetence?!? If you do not think China, Iran and Russia are licking their chops at how weak we have become under Biden you are a goddamned blind moron!

  • Lora says:

    I think that it’s Bidens fault for this attack. The US should’ve taken ISIS out years ago. Now maybe the US Government will allow troops to take ISIS out once and for all or just forget about what happened and bring our troops home safe.
    How did the bombers get into the airport that should’ve been secure already? I feel bad for the US Soldiers 🇺🇸 and their families 😢 that lost their lives.

  • Pinny says:

    I am sure the terrorists are shaking – with laughter – at the threats of the TUFF sleepy Joe.

  • K R Schossow says:

    From a old Nam Vet. My thought is to use all U.S.A. military force and technology to bring a fast resolve. This could have been prevented if our government would act in a responsible, organized way. Our political representatives have failed the people of our Country for far to long. We the people need to stand up and demand accountability from all branches of our representatives. Secure our boarders immediately and permanently to give protection from all risk of threat. Stop all foreign aid and balance our budget. Stay in alliance with all of our allies!

  • ross Loper says:

    Get all our people out, once that’s been accomplished, Send in the cruise missiles and take out all the equipment we left behind , take out all the infrastructure, airports, powerplants, roads, bridges, and anything that would put them where they want to be. THE STONE AGE. Then after that Impeach Biden.

  • Laurie Leroux says:

    As for Isis, they need to be annihilated once and for all. America needs to show it stands by it’s promise to defend the American people, quit surrendering to bureaucratic BS, take charge and demonstrate our power, which I believe we have, and retain the respect and strength we once had. Secure the damn airport, get all the Americans and associated allies out, then bomb the SHIT out of the airport and Taliban and destroy all the military weapons left behind making it impossible for the Taliban to use them against us and take control of the situation. This BS has gone on long enough!!!! We need some true grit in the Government.

  • Daniel R Wamhoff says:

    The US should kick out Biden and the rest of his inept, miss focused, administration – in the next election. Unfortunately, we are stuck with them for 3.5 years. They have completely failed our allies and the citizens of the USA. There isn’t a single enemy of the US that isn’t celebrating and laughing at our inept government. Be prepared for more challenges to the USA militarily and economically until we have a leader that isn’t afraid to support our country, its allies, and our military personnel. Its going to be a tough 3.5 years.

  • Jennie says:

    Send Biden, Kamala, Pelosi Schiff over there. Let them go through what our Americans are going through. Not to mention what our Military is going through.

  • Chad says:

    Cognitive test, demand it!!!!!

  • Joyce Simonette says:

    [email protected] This is the time that the people of the USA should stand behind our service people #1 and our President. This whole world is going crazy and we the people need to stand united not divided. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH>>> Maybe you need to ask the X President Trunmp what he would do.

  • tom says:

    Thank you Biden/Harris. Another stupid mistake that took American Lives, more wounded Americans. Are you two really that stupid? Were you born stupid or were you raised that way? Why don’t you two give up the ghost and just to away, disappear, and take all of the rest of the left wing socialist communist marxist democrats with you.

  • Shadrach says:

    Bologna, Obama and Biden aren’t going to do any harm to their people. And if they do kill anyone, it will be American Christians. This is just some useless chest thumping.

  • Chuckles McGillecutty says:

    I’d love to see Biden turn the military loose and let them take care of business.
    My best guess is that this is like Obama’s ‘red line’ which he apparently forgot about 5 minutes after he said it.

  • Anonymous says:

    SINCE THE TALIBAN AN ISIS PREFER TO LIVE IN THE STONE AGE, LET US HELP THEM TO CONTIUE TO LIVE IN MUD HUTS AN HOLES IN THE GROUND.

  • Scott Smith says:

    God Bless are troops. This is all the democrats fault, from Joe Biden down to every single American that voted for him, they all have blood on there hands. The Democratic party needs to go away. We could have one party, the Republican party. Could you imagine how great the USA could be if we could get rid of the democrats.
