China, Russia, and Iran may Form New Alliances That Ultimately Hurt America

Jason Campbell, the former director for Afghanistan in the Office of the US Secretary of Defense for Policy, said: ‘The geostrategic effect could be profound.”

“China, Russia, and even Iran could benefit from the new political order in Kabul,” Campbell added.

Campbell, a researcher at Rand Corporation, had told The Sun Taliban may be able to fly the aircraft seized during the US withdrawal from Afghanistan by threatening American trained pilots.

He also warned that the “biggest concern” is that the small arms and weapons left behind get into the wrong hands.

Thank You joe biden, more reason for the allies to love you,Biden’s Plans are National Security risk,Under the new left’s thinking for our Country, it should not seem unreasonable to exchange, joe biden for any hostages left behind, all things considered, it should be OK, we left fellow Americans our allies behind, in a war zone right? That was OK . We left 80 billion dollars of hard earned tax payor equipment behind, for no good reason, guess what, that was OK too. The only problem is that the Taliban probably wants him less then we do, as you can easily see their is no justification to why biden, his generals or his cabinet heads, to make the unAmerican decisions they did.

Sad to say but the people of this country seem to no longer have the will to fight for this once great nation. That line of thinking seems to have started back about 60 years ago, and it’s been downhill ever since. Good thing that mindset wasn’t dominant back in the 1940’s or we would not still be the United States of America. Having spent 26 years in our military I now find myself ashamed of how our government is destroying our constitutional republic.

This alliance would have happened as well had Trump had us leave Afghanistan by May (his original plan) instead of Biden’s later, August date. In fact, more Americans and Afghan helpers would have been left using Trump’s May 2021 date since he hadn’t started the visa process before he left office, and this process usually requires months. Afghanistan location-wise is close to both Russia and China, and so the Taliban seeking help from its neighbors was expected. The fact that Biden and our military got >120,000 people out of Afghanistan without the Taliban killing any American soldier is a huge achievement worthy of getting Biden the Nobel Peace Prize. As for the equipment, much of it was made disabled as his much tonnage of weaponry couldn’t have been moved or flown out.

The deep state got what it wanted, more chaos and strife around the world because of Biden’s ineptitude, or maybe it is on purpose. Either way, there will not be peace in my lifetime, the permanent deep state has created the permanent mess so they can continue to fight wars and sell arms to everyone on the planet, it is called creating your own market and customers.

Just imagine how much more bloodshed would have happened if the withdrawal from Afghanistan had occurred under Trump with his original May 2021 date—and how much angrier and revenge-seeking the Taliban would have been.

With the US having the weakest President in memory (yes, on foreign policy even weaker than Obama and rivaling Carter) our enemies see a chance to make great strides against us.

So, what you’re saying is that leaving Afghanistan, which 70% of surveyed U.S. vets and average Americans citizens felt was necessary, was a mistake. Using that logic, this means that if this withdrawal had been done by Trump using Trump’s original May 2021 evacuation date, Trump, instead of Biden would have been the weakest President.

Never thought I would see the USA thisclose to becoming communist, but here we are. I’m just surprised that so many supposedly smart people actually voted for it last November. Kind of reminds me of when a certain guy actually got elected by all the people in Germany in the 1930’s. That did not end well. Nor will this.

The uniting of those evil powers comes as no surprise. The Apostle John wrote about it over two-thousand years ago. One only has to understand the name updates to get all the information. For example, “the king of the east has an enormous army whose uniforms seem identical to the Chinese Olympic Team’s), Meshech is Moscow; Tubal is Tabulsk (the former eastern capital of Russia); Rosh is Russia, Iran is Persia, etc. Gomer is Germany, etc. Together, they attack Israel and Christ destroys all of them. I suspect the US has already been destroyed but the Bible makes no mention of it. Dwayne

It’s already happened thanks to the Biden’sBiden recall or the democrat party will become just a memory.White House now, all Biden phone calls are private, are we now in some type of dictatorship governennt? Time for these clowns to go, Public servants like joe biden, don’t have private conversations, with world leaders on the phone, this is why, the phone calls are on recorder and listen in on, by white house security etc, so are the white house logs, which Biden also likes to hide from our public view. Guess also those many conversations over in China, where he and Hunter cut that billion and half dollar deal while on the tax payors dime.Time for any traitors to pay for their crimes against America. Biden has sold our Country down the drain, Where does their loyalty end, Bidens, foreign interest? it’s more then obivious joe biden is making decisions against our American people, this is what happens, when money is exhanged for loyality, the bidens have accepted enormous amounts of money from Russia China as he held the VP office, What did they do, promise to get that money? We are at a point it’s time, for the Biden’s to explain their actions and motives. He will be impeached for his actions an forced to explain his role in aiding China and Russia, the decisions he makes on their behalf. Biden’s Plans are National Security risk, under the left’s thinking in our Country, it should not seem unreasonable to exchange, joe biden for any hostages left behind, all things considered, it should be OK, we left fellow Americans our allies behind, in a war zone right? on a battlefield, that was OK . We left 80 billion dollars plus of hard earned tax payor equipment behind, for no good reason, guess what, that was OK too. The only problem is that the Taliban probably wants him less then we do, there happy exactly where biden is at, as you can easily see their was no justification to why biden, his generals or his cabinet heads, to make the unAmerican decisions they did, leave Allies, Americans, Equiptment to the established declared enemy’s of the United States.

Xi owns the Biden family, so they won’t conspire to hurt America, they will simply tell Biden to turn it over to them and he will comply, just like any trained seal would do.

The China Russian plan the Biden’s sold us out for, Has any one noticed Biden is having motor function faults, looks like he is constantly walking on eggs, just a matter of time before he will be forced to quit or step down , where is the report he is mentally fit to serve?Time to hold them accountable for their actions, El Presidente de los Estados unidos, ? don’t think so mate, “Las ratas se van, desertando del barco que se hununde”, Biden is setting up a medical escape plan for when he gets dumped, Biden, has too be removed from office, no allies support him, he has lost complete confidence of the free world. American people no longer trust his decisions, his loyalty to the United States is in serious question, China, Russia seem to have more of his financial interest then any of our American Ideals, the world has become a very dangerous place because of joe biden’s money corruption with foreign countries. Hold the democrats responsible.
