Joe Biden has coddled China while his son made big pay-for-play money using the family name.
However, China is no friend to the US and they are just waiting and plotting for us to fail.
How does the old adage go? The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
So now, China has found a new ally: The Taliban.
According to Barrons:
China is reveling in the hasty U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan while simultaneously courting the incoming Taliban leadership.
A unified front of government and media posturing—as well as tweets from China’s increasingly assertive coterie of diplomats around the world—has put forward three main messages: The U.S. was “defeated” by the Taliban because America is a troublemaker with a deficient core ideology; China is here to help the Taliban rebuild war-torn Afghanistan; but exporting Islamic terrorism will not be tolerated.
“It was a failure of ideas,” Wang Yong, director of the Center for American Studies at Peking University, told Barron’s.
Meanwhile, China wasn’t waiting for U.S. withdrawal to begin strengthening relations with the Taliban. On July 28—well before the expected Aug. 31 removal of all foreign troops from Afghanistan—Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi hosted top Taliban leaders in the city of Tianjin, just outside of Beijing.
Taliban terrorists aren’t the only ones who got what they wanted. China, Russia, and Iran witnessed a weak and retreating America.
As a result, America is less safe today. That’s the biggest price we’ll pay for Biden’s failure in Afghanistan.https://t.co/UIfFs4r7oG

According to France24;
“The Taliban have repeatedly expressed their hope to develop good relations with China, and that they look forward to China’s participation in the reconstruction and development of Afghanistan,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters.
“We welcome this. China respects the right of the Afghan people to independently determine their own destiny and is willing to continue to develop… friendly and cooperative relations with Afghanistan.”
Hua called on the Taliban to “ensure a smooth transition” of power and keep its promises to negotiate the establishment of an “open and inclusive Islamic government” and ensure the safety of Afghans and foreign citizens.
China’s embassy in Kabul remains operational, Hua said, although Beijing began evacuating Chinese citizens from the country months ago amid the deteriorating security situation.
This is what CNBC seems to be worried about:
China may align itself with Taliban and try to exploit Afghanistan's rare earth metals, analyst warns https://t.co/jADUUq56A4

Honestly, if China wants their earth metals, I couldn’t care less.
I’m more concerned about the exploitation of our Southern Border to smuggle in terrorists aided by China who is already aiding drug smugglers with Fentanyl.
With Biden’s open border policy combined with the Taliban’s return, it feels like the beginning of the perfect storm.
