Nigel Farage launched into a tirade on Joe Biden on Tuesday as he skewered the US President for his withdrawal from Afghanistan strategy. The former UKIP leader and GB News host vented his disbelief at US troops leaving behind military equipment and pointed to the example of Britain “destroying everything” when they left Dunkirk in World War II.

Farage remarked: “One of the most extraordinary things is that Joe Biden has left Afghanistan, and left behind $85 billion worth of up to date, modern functioning American military equipment. 

“And last night we saw the Taliban, going into one of the hangars. 

“Now can you see they’re all dressed in American combat uniforms with night sights, and they’ve just discovered amongst the haul are some lovely helicopters and they frankly look like kids in a sweetshop. 

“I find it difficult to believe that Biden could have left them with all this military equipment.”

“When the British left Dunkirk, they made sure that every gun barrel was spiked, that no vehicle was operative, they smashed and destroyed everything and yet what Biden has done is to effectively arm the Taliban,” he continued.

“So I think we’re at a moment where the British and the Americans are on the verge of recognising the Taliban, as the legitimate government of Afghanistan and we will find common cause with them in fighting ISIS.

“Tonight I want to ask you, should we be doing this? Should we recognise the Taliban, if they meet some of our demands over the next few days, and find common cause with them in the fight against ISIS? 

“I absolutely think we should not, I think they’re still a terrorist organisation.”

Questioning the Taliban’s motives, Farage said: “Something very odd has happened, because when we saw the horrible suicide bomb take place just outside the gates of Kabul airport.

“It was conducted by an ISIS organisation and it was the first time I saw the Taliban effectively helping American and British troops.

“And I thought this is odd, suddenly, are the Taliban, becoming our ally?

“I’ve heard Boris Johnson, in the last 24 hours, saying that provided the Taliban, behave, allow the rest of our people out, the rest of our interpreters out, whatever British people are still there, provided they good safe passage, and provided they don’t return to some form of barbarism, well, perhaps in these circumstances, we can recognise them.”

“Jake Sullivan, the American boss of national security, today said much the same thing,” Farage quipped.

“It’s as if the group of people we’ve been at war with for 20 years are now effectively becoming a form of ally against ISIS and other groups who perhaps are more extreme than the Taliban, in the sense that the Taliban confined themselves to Afghanistan, whereas ISIS want a global revolution.

“Now having said that, Bagram airport is the scene, of course, last night, where we saw a couple of extraordinary things happen, that made me think that actually, the Taliban are not good guys.

“We saw a TV broadcast, much like this one and in the middle of it suddenly, in come [the Taliban].”

Describing the clip, he added: “The guy is broadcasting, he looks terrified, he has every right to be. 

“The guy’s broadcasting and into the studio come the Taliban, that indicates to me that nothing’s changed. 

“We have plenty of reports of people being murdered outside their houses people who have fought with the Allied Forces, assisted us as interpreters, over the last 20 years.”
