Taliban Allies with China

I know… we’re all shocked. I guess we know now why Biden surrendered the country to a murderous gang and equipped their army with American equipment.

According to a Taliban spokesman, China will now be the group’s “main partner” and will help rebuild Afghanistan.


“China will be our main partner and represents a great opportunity for us because it is ready to invest in our country and support reconstruction efforts,” Zabihulah Mujahid said in an interview.


He said the Taliban values China’s Belt and Road Initiative, as the project will revive the ancient Silk Road. He also said China will help Afghanistan use its copper resources and give the country a path into global markets, per the Asia Today.

    Two questions:

    – Do the Taliban/al-Queda also get access to Red China’s nuclear umbrella just in time to make the trapped Americans the centerpiece of their 20th-anniversary celebration of 9/11?
    – What, other than not having a dozen or so dead Marines, would have been different under Trump?

    “What, other than not having a dozen or so dead Marines, would have been different under Trump?”
    I guess you don’t watch or read the news and current events.
    So sad.

    Given the lack of performance from Team Biden after reluctantly extending the military presence for several months, it is safe to say there was no plan from Team Trump to get anything or anyone other than military personnel out of Afghanistan before the Taliban/al-Qaeda rolled into Kabul. Indeed, given no military support for any evacuation of the diplomats, intelligence agents and civilians, there would have been more hostages for the Taliban/al-Qaeda to use as centerpieces for their 20th-anniversary celebration of 9/11.

    Of course, since the Deep State and the do-gooders aren’t Trumpets like you, you probably don’t care about that.

    Again, Steve, there this wonderful invention called a newspaper, television and radio. You might have heard about them
    President Trump has spoken quite clearly on what he would done.
    Stop using the telegraph and smoke signals.

    Steve is like Sykes on some matters. Ignore reality, make up shit about Trump, and hope that people believe you.

    Like you say, Mar—reading more than the J-S Online is enlightening.

    Eggman asks:”What, other than not having a dozen or so dead Marines, would have been different under Trump?”

    Well that’s easy.

    Air support would not have been cut off. Bagram would not have been abandoned in the middle of the night . The Taliban would not have overrun the entire county in 90 days. Billions in US equipment and pallets of newly minted $100 bills would not have been given to the terrorist.

    And no Americans would have been left behind.

    The Doha accord would have been declared void since the Taliban was refusing to seriously negotiate with the Afghani g’vment while working side-by-side with al qaeda and Haqqani.

    That Trump Derangement Syndrome is for real. Kinda like burning down your own damned house because you don’t like the wallpaper and then trying to persuade everyone else that it was a good idea and you’re still glad you did it. It might have been chic for awhile there, but nobody is buying that shit anymore.
