Emperor Xi Issues Strong Backing for the Taliban

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Amir Khan Muttaqi, acting foreign minister of the Taliban’s caretaker government. 

So, the surrender in Afghanistan was actually also a surrender to China.

The US could have just allied with the Taliban, but that’s not our values. We don’t cooperate with people who don’t do gay anal and let women run their governments.


Chinese leader Xi Jinping on Thursday issued strong backing for Afghanistan at a regional conference, while making no mention of human rights abuses by the country’s Taliban leaders.

Xi pledged China’s support in a message to a gathering of representatives from Afghanistan, China, Russia, Pakistan, Iran, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan in a central Chinese city that spotlights Beijing’s aspirations to play a leading role in Afghanistan following the withdrawal of U.S. forces last August.

A “peaceful, stable, developed and prosperous Afghanistan” is what Afghans aspire to, which “serves the common interests of regional countries and the international community,” Xi said.

China has all along respected Afghanistan’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, and is committed to supporting Afghanistan’s peaceful and stable development,” Xi said in his message to the gathering in Tunxi, a center of the tourism industry in Anhui province.

Xi gave no specifics, although China has already shipped emergency aid to Afghanistan and is seeking to develop copper mining there.

China follows what it calls a strict policy of “non-intervention” in other countries’ internal affairs, including opposing those staged for humanitarian purposes unless sanctioned by the United Nations. Despite that, Beijing is frequently accused of meddling to further its own domestic and international interests.

This is just one more place where the West has lost all control.

You’re seeing it all over the world.

Lately, I’ve been focusing on India, which no one really seems to be thinking all that much about, but which is a very big deal.

China is also backing the Pakistan government, saying that people trying to overthrow Khan are CIA shills and offering to intervene to keep him in power.

America and the Empire it represents is just losing everything, everywhere – while their titular leader is a senile old man who poops his pants. It’s amazing to watch.
