The Cicadas

We are not surprised when the cicadas emerge. Why are we when the Taliban emerge? What a shock! American troops start their precipitous withdrawal and Taliban sprout everywhere. We had no idea! The Taliban were everywhere, from high to low, lying underground, waiting for the signal. The signal was our withdrawal. We could no more stop their emergence than we can stop the cicadas’ emergence.
Who did not know that? Who was advising Pres. Biden?
