No wonder we've had so much trouble in Afghanistan! I'll bet the Chinese have been giving covert aid to the Taliban to push us out.
Rare Earth; Afghanistan Sits on $1 Trillion in Minerals
The Chinese have been quietly working to control all of the Earth's Rare Earth elements, and have been quite successful in it. If a treasure trove of minerals is sitting next door to them they will not let the U.S. succeed in stabilizing the country; they need us out so they can make it a protectorate.
This explains a LOT!
You know what I think we need to do? Find a clever diplomatic way to set the Chicoms and the Iranians at each other's throats and get them at war with each other! I have no idea how to do it, but if it could be done -- get somebody else to do our dirty work -- what fun.

You do know that Pompeo graduated #1 in his class at West Point, don't you? And despite all the people talking about him eventually seeking political office, he insists he's happy right where he is.

TANSTAAFL, after all. Huh? You don't know that one? It's "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch."
But pardon me if I don't lie awake tonight worrying if that unholy mess is now going to be in Afghanistan. Let the Taliban clean it up -- or sleep in it and die from the pollution.
