O.J. Simpson said anti-mask parents in Texas and Florida put up a better fight that the Afghan Army had against the Taliban.
“This morning all the the news is about to return of COVID and the Taliban,” the former National Football League star shared in a clip he posted Monday on Twitter.
“It’s like Vietnam this Afghanistan thing, it’s deja vu all over again, to quote Yogi Berra,” he added. “I don’t get it. I remember when we supported the Taliban. When we gave them weapons and advice, along with Osama Bin Laden … We did that when they were trying to get the Russians out and we didn’t seem so worried about how brutally they treated their people then.”
Simpson said now Afghanistan should be a “Chinese problem” and said they have issues, both religious and border related.

He credited the Chinese government with being “pretty smart” because they’ve already started negotiating with the Taliban who will recognize them “politically” as long as they adhere to a couple of conditions, one being that they stop “harboring terrorist groups.”
O.J. said he thought former President “Donald Trump did the right thing when he started negotiating with the Taliban” and said he’s “100%” behind what President Joe Biden “is doing now.”
“Get us out of there,” Simpson explained. “We send these guys for 20 years, all kind of money. We trained their army, crappy job I might add. We did all of this for what?”
