… I spent thirty one years in the military, here is what it has decided for Afghanistan and that you don’t know this either. We’re in Afghanistan as we were in Germany, post-World War Two, that is for at least a half a century. It has nothing to do with Kabul and state building, nothing to do with fighting the Taliban or proving that we can reconcile with the Taliban and nothing to do with fighting any terrorist group because it is the only hard power the United States has that sits proximate to the Central Base Road Initiative of China that runs across Central Asia.
If we had to impact that with military power, we are in position to do so in Afghanistan. And second reason we’re there is because we’re cheek and jowl with the potentially most unstable nuclear stockpile on the face of the earth in Pakistan, we want to be able to leap on that stockpile and stabilize it if necessary.
And the third reason we’re there is because there are 20 million Uighurs and they don’t like Chinese and Xinjiang province in western China. And if the CIA has to mount an operation using those Uighurs, as Erdogan has done in Turkey against Assad, there are twenty thousand of them in it in Idlib, in Syria right now, for example.
That’s why the Chinese might be deploying military forces to Syria in the very near future to take care of those Uighurs that Erdogan invited in.
Well, the CIA would want to destabilize China, and that would be the best way to do it, to foment unrest and to join with those Uighurs in pushing the Han Chinese in Beijing from internal places rather than external.
