So one of the rumours coming out of the White House is using Iran, instead of The US, to peace keep in Afghanistan. It's was meant to encourage them to be more engaging with the real world... mainly because sanctions have failed. Biden is trying a... creative solution.

Now a new rumor has come out... China. Sanctions haven't worked. The trade war didn't either. And the Taliban attacks China... so...


The best thing I can say is - this is at least novel. We will see if it actuallt happens

Sounds like Iran and China want to hunt dissidents hiding in Afghanistan.

I mean, it seems kind of inevitable really. China has made very clear that it considers central Asia to be part of its sphere of influence.

Although it is incredibly depressing that we are moving back into an age where "spheres of influence" are a thing.

I think Erik Prince was trying to pitch a project that would’ve literally made him viscount of Afghanistan, so we’re well into it.
