Stranded man slams Biden for Afghanistan chaos

A desperate civilian trapped in Afghanistan under Taliban rule has slammed President Joe Biden’s “ill-calculation” for the chaos — as he stands beside two young siblings abandoned in Kabul after their parents lost them in the scramble at the airport, heartbreaking video shows.

The cowering and crying brother and sister were reportedly left behind when their parents entered the airport at the capital without them during the pandemonium, the distressing footage from ITV News shows.

A man who appeared to be caring for the children said it was Biden’s fault for what has happened in Afghanistan after the Taliban recaptured the country.

“Mr. Biden, you did this! You planned this! You made the deal with the Taliban,” the irate man told ITV News.

 “This is the consequences of it! This is the repercussions of it! Mr. Biden, it’s your ill-calculation! You were against Trump, now we’re against you!” he shouted.

“Go to Hell, Biden!” he added.

Another man holding a British passport made an impassioned plea to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“Just get us out of here. I’m a British citizen, my kids are British and they’re stuck here. They closed the door on us and they’re shooting back at us,” the man told ITV News.

“Our kids are struggling and we’re all in a big mess here. The British army is right behind these fences, they’ve closed the gate and they’re not letting no one in,” he added.

According to ITV News, several of the abandoned kids were left behind when their parents entered Kubal's airport without them.

Meanwhile, in a contrasting scene, twin sisters were seen smiling before making their way to the UK.

Dad Nooragha Hashimi, a translator with the British military, told the news outlet that their RAF flight would save their lives.

Asked if he thought he was at risk, he said, “Yes, they (the Taliban) were gonna kill me.

“It was like everybody was scared (about) what they’re going to do, and the first time they’re saying, ‘We’re gonna do nothing (to) anybody, but nobody knows if it will be the same as 1996,” he said.
