He was just 20 years old.
Not old enough to drink a beer.
But old enough to die at the hand of an inept, uncaring man in the White House whose own son fills his pocket with dirty money and makes videos with prostitutes.
It’s unfair, it’s unjust. And sadly right now, it’s America.
This story just broke my heart.
According to the Daily Beast:
Thursday was “an excruciating day” for California carpenter Steve Nikoui. He knew his son Kareem, a young U.S. Marine, was stationed at the Kabul airport. But when he heard there had been a bombing there, he had no idea if Kareem was alive or dead.
“I stayed home from work yesterday because there was that attack and I knew he was there,” Nikoui told The Daily Beast early Friday morning. “So all day, I was glued to the TV.”
,,,The Marines who came to deliver the news of Kareem’s death were “more choked up than me,” Nikoui said. “I was actually trying to console them. But at the same time, I just wanted them to get out as soon as possible so that no one from my family came back and saw them. I thought it appropriate that I be able to tell them.”
Through tears, Nikoui expressed flashes of anger along with his anguish. He said he wants to “respect the office” of the president, but doesn’t have much love for President Joe Biden at the moment. A Trump supporter, Nikoui was happy that Trump was in office when Kareem joined the Marines. “I really believed this guy didn’t want to send people into harm’s way,” he said.
“They sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security,” said Nikoui. “I blame my own military leaders… Biden turned his back on him. That’s it.”
Darling boy, Rest In Peace. His father Steve Nikoui did him proud on @TuckerCarlson tonight, paying tribute to the best of American youth, who deserved better, but who died with honor and give us faith in their noble generation who shoulder the burden of their feckless elders. https://t.co/mBDCAoFQl9

U.S. Marine Kareem Nikoui was one of our fallen warriors from the cowardly terrorist attack in Afghanistan.
He was born the same year of the 9/11 attacks.
Kareem would often bring home 10-15 Marines on the weekends and holidays to his parent's house for homecooked meals. pic.twitter.com/ZeWYwD8D7a

It’s so easy when it’s someone else’s kid, isn’t it?
How does someone live with themselves when they destroy a family like that?
Congressional candidate Jerrod Sessler, whom I support in his effort to replace RINO and Trump impeacher Dan Newhouse in Washington State, enlisted in the Navy when he was only 17. He shared his anger over the situation in a new video.
When a young man or woman makes the choice to serve, it involves, not just them but their entire family – their parents, their spouse, their children. Each and every one of them puts their heart and life on the line when their loved one goes to fight.
This week 13 American families were forever destroyed because of a government that has no clue what it’s doing.
And it sickens me to think that this may just be the beginning.
…As you watch what is unfolding in Afghanistan, if you’re feeling that same sickening feeling you felt when the second plane crashed into the tower 20 years ago, you’re probably not alone.
We all know there is a storm coming. Possibly one bigger than this country has ever experienced.
There is a storm coming.
If we think it’s bad now, it’s only going to get worse.
As Nikki Haley said, “Should Biden step down or be removed for his handling of Afghanistan? Yes. But that would leave us with Kamala Harris which would be ten times worse. God help us.”
There’s so much to be angry about and so much to be afraid about.
But for tonight, let’s hold the ones we love close and say a prayer for the family of a sweet 20-year-old boy, who will never come home again.
