The US military is doing an about-face and heading back to Afghanistan after President Joe Biden suddenly remembered that the war-torn country has massive, untapped oil reserves. Biden says it would be “unconscionable” to not secure the oil.
“It would be immoral to not go back. We can’t just leave that innocent, precious oil behind,” Biden stated. “No, I mean it! We can’t just sit back and watch such a devastating loss of fossil fuels take place.”
As of press time, countless Afghanis were migrating toward oil deposits and away from the Taliban in hopes of also receiving protection.
