(Ryan DeLarme) The news cycles have taken a momentary pause on the usual incessant fear-mongering to cover the highly controversial situation in Afghanistan.
by Ryan DeLarme, August 24th, 2021
Joe Biden, or rather his puppet masters, have decided to pull the troops from the graveyard of empires. The backwards nature of the withdrawal has resulted in the immediate take over of the Afghan government by the Taliban. This withdrawal was originally planned by former President Donald Trump as part of his administration’s effort to stop the endless wars in the middle east, but was inherited and subsequently botched by the current administration.
There are those who believe we never should have left, but it is this author’s humble opinion that we never should have been there in the first place. Regardless of whether or not we should or shouldn’t have gotten involved is now pointless . We’ve withdrawn, as promised, only we did so at the worst possible time and in the worst possible way. Instead of evacuating Civilians and our advanced military equipment, Biden’s advisors decided it would be better to withdraw the troops first, inciting mass chaos.
The corporate media’s willingness to completely clog the news cycles indicates that things are progressing exactly as planned and is leading some to believe that Biden’s days as Commander-in-Chief MIGHT be limited. Will the 25th Amendment come back to haunt Joe Biden as Donald Trump once prophesied? One thing is for certain, you have to be high on glue or completely brainwashed to think Joe Biden and his puppeteers are doing a good job running this country.
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who joined America in the invasion of Afghanistan after the 2001 attacks, is blasting President Joe Biden’s bungled exit from the country as “imbecilic” and a boon to both jihadist and Western enemies across the world. Joe’s pals over in the CCP are the first to come to mind.
On that note, it was reported by the Global Times that Beijing has a rapacious interest in Afghanistan’s vast rare-earth mineral resources. It therefore seems like the perfect time to pull American troops out so that these optics can make sense.
As per the CCP Propaganda rag Global Times:
“Rare-earth metals in Afghanistan were estimated to be worth anywhere between $1 trillion and $3 trillion in 2020. China may “align itself with Taliban and try to exploit Afghanistan’s rare-earth metals,” US media outlet CNBC reported on Tuesday, citing an investment analyst’s so-called “warning.”
The US has spent 20 years on its “anti-terror war” in Afghanistan, investing a huge amount of resources to support the government. It’s not hard to imagine that there are huge economic considerations behind this. Over the past two decades, US firms have enjoyed privileges in exploiting rare resources in Afghanistan. The US troops’ withdrawal and the drastic change in Afghanistan’s situation is undoubtedly a heavy blow to US economic interests in Afghanistan and the wider region. With many US businesses leaving due to losing their protection, the US may instead choose to obstruct future cooperation between Afghanistan and other countries. We cannot rule out the possibility that the US could launch its notorious sanction measures again to protect its economic interests in the region after US troops’ withdrawal.
However, the US is in no position to meddle with any potential cooperation between China and Afghanistan, including on rare earths. The so-called “warnings” in the CNBC report show that American firms doing business in Afghanistan are dissatisfied with Washington’s hasty evacuation and therefore the loss of their “privileges,” and it also reveals the US’ fear of possible advancement for China with regard to the rare-earth sector. After all, China has a much better track record in successfully cooperating with developing countries around the world. “
It is apparent that the notoriously strong-armed CCP’s news wizards are not impressed with the CNBC piece. One of the reasons could be that a certain CNBC contributor, Alliance Bernstein, director of emerging market debt Shamaila Khan, said it was a “very dangerous proposition for the world” to let the Taliban (and, by extension, its new best friends in Beijing) control those much-needed minerals.
It is a matter of perspective, I’m sure they said the same about the west when we had a grip over Afghanistan. That isn’t the real issue here, the question I want to know is this: If the international, high-finance super elite have been propping up China to be the next global superpower after they systematically decimate America economically and culturally, is Joe Biden in on it? Was this horribly goofed withdrawal a part of that plan? No one can claim to know for sure, but if I were a betting man I’d be all in on China Joe being a puppet for an international criminal cabal that thinks of themselves as being above all nations.
