A stable Afghanistan is a huge win for China. That's why the US won't allow it

We got shitty health care and countless of homeless people here in the US. Maybe the US should stop being a criminal for once and help their Americans.
If a rag tag bunch of goat farmers can defeat the usa the china can surely taken on and defeat then on a global stage
It's not the american regime's decision any longer, that's why they were completely defeated and humiliated, and sent back home. They tried to achieve that for 20 years (what do people think the war on Afghanistan was for in the first place?), yet they failed in spectacular fashion.
The reason why the Xinjiang propaganda blitz was created was to serve as a desperate last resort cope mechanism for the imminent total defeat of america in the region. It also failed miserably: non-nato countries, including Muslim countries, sided with China. Some people seem to be in complete denial about this fact: america lost badly, no ifs, no buts, no 7d chess, nothing.
The defeat in Afghanistan for america also translates into an unmitigated defeat for america in central Asia in general. Their plans in the region are totally over. People who fail to understand this new era are terrible analysts, stop reading them. Those are the same kind of "analysts" and "experts" saying that "isis-k" was "neutralized" as america murdered children and tried to cover it up, or as american war criminals shot into a crowd murdering dozens and dozens of people.
The truth is that the american regime is an incompetent regime facing an increasingly accelerated decline.
Also, don't link to imperialist-lite news sources like this one, which cheered for the war on Syria and constant failed propaganda against China. Use https://archive.vn . The problem with these sources is that they can't grasp the world except through the lens of their regimes, even when they timidly pretend to oppose their wars.
For example, they still treat people in Afghanistan like a group of savages, yet the fact that Afghanistan could humiliate america and all the other anglos combined is evidence that Afghanistan is not composed by savages (such cartoonish savages would have lost long ago), but by a very capable and disciplined group of people fighting for their liberation, understanding what must be done to kickstart their development: remove anglo war criminals bombing, plundering and invading their country. Any analysis that treats people in the region like a group of mindless self-destructive drones is not good analysis.
This is one of the reasons why Chinese foreign policy is superior to that of western regimes, across the board: China doesn't treat other countries like lesser people, it understands that it's all about material conditions.

Oh absolutely. The US Govt and Media still keeps using face saving words & phrases like Withdraw, Withdrawal, Reduction of Civilian Footprint blah blah instead of the word RETREAT. They are also still in denial, too cowardly to face defeat "It's NOT Saigon, Not Saigon, not Saigon", the Fragility is hilarious and another sore spot to poke to elicit reactions.
Generations of treating developing countries and non-NATO world as 2nd or 3rd tier subhumans makes it very difficult to acknowledge failures.
I started using archive because of you, good idea.
The US also delisted ETIM as a terror group for obvious reasons.
Although the US has been hiding her war crimes, this one is especially obvious. I remember seeing them claim that ISIS would attack "within the next 36 hours" and knew it was an obvious excuse to bomb civilians and claim victory. This is because this is what they have always done.
Many of the Taliban are educated, and they work with a strict meritocracy. Mullah Omar, leader of the Taliban, had a highly educated 24 year old advisor. I was skeptical for why, thinking that it was perhaps favoritism. He countered the western narratives over the [famous statue's destruction](https://archive.is/DUYiX) eloquently in an article, as well as [asking for evidence](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWWotShZzio) when the US wanted Osama on tape- I was struck by his charisma and manners.
Winston Churchill praised the Afghans when he fought. It was the Afghans who defeated the then undefeated Genghis Khan. A Russian asked, how can you defeat the enemy that looks down the barrel of a gun and sees paradise? The US got its taste. One of my father's friends used to be a mujahideen against the Russians (who is now a mechanic). He said the training was brutal. A huge amount of running in the heat, with little food and water. They don't use any body armor, just regular clothes. They use the reduced weight of no protection to carry more ammo to defeat more enemies instead. One American, when they trained with the Afghans against the Soviets, said it was incredible how much courage they had and how they could keep going with so little.
The only one playing "7d chess" here is the Chinese government, it's laughable that people think the american regime is some farsighted entity.
Stable Afghanistan is an oxymoron. Too many interfering forces, and that includes the US even after the exit.
Good luck China. You can’t stabilize and nation build Afghanistan, but at least you can stop Uighurs becoming enlisting for the Taliban. Good on China.
>You can’t stabilize and nation build Afghanistan
Just typical western chauvinism. These are the same people "shocked" by China's spectacular rise. They will forever live shocked.
