Will China be next?

Afghanistan is known as the “Graveyard of Empires”.
With America’s withdrawal will China try and seize opportunities to get inroads into the country?

They’d probably win too. They don’t care about killing civilians or putting Muslims in re-education camps. Their war will be easier to win because everything not in a Chinese uniform is a target. Even the Russians aren’t that callous anymore.

What does it have to offer? Opium? Rocks? Hate? Maybe the Chinese are too smart to waste $$ on it.

@SW-User Not entirely certain about that. If those reserves were substantial, mining operations would already be established and they would be sought after.
It’s there.. it’s never been stable enough politically to work a deal..

Too many chieftains…
Why did we spend 20 years there?
Russia? The British @carpediem

@SW-User Great question. We left far more wealth than we removed. Nation building doesn't work.

I think China is getting more into Africa than the Middle East
@plungesponge there are as many Chinese citizens in some African nations as there are African people.
I could see China going in..
