In one headline, the Wall Street Journal today explained Biden’s abrupt surrender of Afghanistan and $83 billion in military equipment and cash to the Taliban. The headline read, “China Pursues Afghanistan’s Mineral Wealth After U.S. Exit.”
Red China now has access to what the Journal called one of world’s largest untapped reserves of copper.
There are other treasures to be mined, and of course one of the world’s most famous supply of poppies used to make heroin.
The story said, “Following the American exit from Afghanistan, China’s move to claim the country’s vast mineral wealth is centered on a mountain south of Kabul.
“The mountain and the barren surrounding valley, in Logar province, a two-hour drive from the capital, contain one of the world’s biggest untapped reserves of copper.
“China is negotiating with Taliban authorities to start mining at the site, called Mes Aynak, according to Chinese and Taliban officials. Beijing is also in talks to begin work on oil-and-gas reserves in the north of the country, Amu Darya. Both projects were on hold for years because of the war, which ended when the Taliban seized power in August.
“Dozens of Chinese mining companies have descended on Kabul in recent weeks seeking contracts for other mines.
“U.S. officials say they are concerned that China will fill the vacuum left by the American withdrawal from Afghanistan. Beijing developed a relationship with the Taliban in recent years and kept its Kabul embassy functioning when Western missions fled the Taliban takeover.
“Iran, another U.S. rival, is in talks to secure a huge iron ore deposit in the west of the country. Tehran, too, has fostered good ties with the Taliban.”
The story answered the age-old question: Cui Bono?
Now we know who benefited from the surrender of Afghanistan. Red China.
This showed long-term thinking and patience by Chairman Xi.
As vice president, Biden took his son Hunter to Beijing in 2011 and again in 2013, where Hunter picked up billions to invest in places like the Czech Republic for Red China. In exchange, the Biden Mafia received a cut of the action.
On October 4, 2019, WSJ reported, “Hunter Biden, a 49-year-old lawyer and the second son of the former vice president, owns 10% of a private-equity firm called Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Co.
“Over the past roughly six years, it has channeled $2.5 billion or more on behalf of its financial backers into automotive, energy, mining and technology deals, according to interviews with people familiar with the private-equity firm and a review by The Wall Street Journal of financial filings and other official business records.
“Hunter Biden is one of nine directors of the firm, known as BHR Partners, which is controlled and funded primarily by large Chinese government-owned shareholders.”
That’s a lot of moolah and he did not get that investment because he is a good businessman. At the time, he was a ne’er-do-well privileged white boy addicted to hookers and cocaine. Red China bought access not only to mines but to the DC elite.
Last August, Chairman Xi’s multi-billion-dollar investment paid off when Joe Biden gave away Afghanistan.
Bought and paid for by the CCP
Do you think China appreciates Biden’s military assistance to the nation that’s fighting off their buddy Vlad?
That seems very unlikely.
Doesn’t erase or excuse what he has already done.
I don’t see where Biden has done anything other than deal with problems that were already en route to the presidential desk when he took office—Putin popping his cork included.
Putin has made his big move. He didn’t just wake up and think of it one morning. He got away with a little more, and a little more, and then he decided he could get away with destroying a neighboring nation.
If we were slow learners, we might let him get away with that, too. We could simply do nothing. That would be safe, for a while at least.
If that doesn’t seem right, what should we do that’s different from what Joe Biden is doing?
Biden’s existence invited this.
Trump handled Putin.
Biden can’t wipe his own ass, so this is obviously happening by design.
That would not be a useful suggestion regarding some alternative approach to Vladimir Putin.
Maybe Trump has something. What useful suggestion does Donald have? Surely he’s said something useful about how to deal with the actual reality of Russian tanks rolling over a European nation.
‘It never woulda happened if I had been there!‘ isn’t really a useful suggestion.
Primary suggestion: DON’T be idiot Biden.
It is when over half the country knows you rigged an election that the legal outcome of would have prevented this war.
Saying “what would you do? What would Trump do.” isn’t really a useful thought.
What would Trump do?
If you look at the pattern of what Democrats/Deep State/Globalists have been saying through their vessels like Biden and Pelosi, they pretty much telegraphed that they WANT high gas prices…so this war, like Covid, is awfully convenient.
Larry Fink has even let it slip that gas will be so high that people will HAVE to buy EVs.
This is all part of the plan, you pig.
The world sees it
Yet they’re following Biden’s lead in an effective push back against Vladimir Putin. Maybe they haven’t spent enough time with Biden Blooper Videos on social media.
WHAT lead? He follows, reacts, dawdles, delays. When POLAND leads and wants to send MiG’s to Ukraine, idiot Biden pulls the plug on it. Zelensky BEGS idiot Biden to lead.
You mean the “if you don’t fire the prosecutor, you’re not getting the money” blooper, the Biden admitted committing a crime blooper?
Biden is leading nothing, except leading Russia, China, and India to join forces against the horrible foreign policies of the Leftist Americans and Europeans.
Putin loves high oil prices. Biden ushered that in. Putin made no moves toward Ukraine until Joe showed up at the White house. Get a clue.
The biggest winner in this Ukraine debacle is the CCP. The biggest loser (not monetarily speaking) is biden…
Idiot Biden sells out out country at every turn. His coke-snorting, whore-banging son is in the money laundering business and he kicks back 10 to 50% (depending on the source of the money) to Pops, the “Big Guy”. I hope and pray this country, with able leadership that might follow this incompetent, treacherous boob, the nation will somehow recover from the severe damage done just this past year, much less the other three remaining.
