Taliban forces have surged to take over all of Afghanistan’s major cities, weeks after a key meeting with Chinese officials. Currently, Joe Biden remains in hiding.
Last month, a Taliban delegation met with China’s foreign minister Wang Yi in Tianjin, China, where the communist discussed China’s important role in the reconstruction of the new Islamic Emirate, which has trillions in minerals, discovered and mapped by U.S. tax dollars.
The USGS helped the future leaders of Afghanistan out, by making it the first country to have all of its minerals mapped from the air. Deposits of Lithium were found (think electric-car batteries), a market currently dominated from the “Lithium Triangle” in Argentina, Chile and Bolivia.
How did this happen?
The Trump Administration planned to have U.S. troops withdrawn from Afghanistan by May, 2021, only if the “Taliban have met their commitments.”
Mike Pompeo on Sept. 10, 2020: “The president has said whether it’s a year from now or three years from now, if there’s a risk to the United States of America, we’ll go in — I think he used more colorful language than this — but I think he said we’ll go in there and we’ll take care of business.”
The Biden Administration extended the withdrawal, and informed the enemy of an unconditional withdrawal date of Sept. 11.
Joe Biden’s withdrawal speech on April 17th: “In this moment there’s a significant downside risk to staying beyond May 1st, without a clear timetable for departure. If we instead pursue the approach where America U.S. exit is tied to conditions on the ground, we have to have clear answers to the following questions, just what conditions require, to be required, to allow us to depart. By what means and how long would it take to achieve them if they could be achieved at all?”

The poppy’s for pomegranates policy has failed.
Memes like the one above are spreading through Twitter, using the White House’s fabricated photo of Biden’s video conference from Camp David, with his Afghanistan team. (As evidenced by the clocks using Daylight Savings Time.)
