If China is dealing with the US, why not the Taliban. Say what you will about them, at least they are more consistent than the US government.If you guys believe -- on this little corner of the Internet -- that the Taliban will not betray China, you are delusional. Islam WILL override China. No matter what. By that, I do not mean the Taliban will try to impose Islam into China, but that the Taliban WILL use whatever 'Islamic' reasoning to justify betrayal.
China's leadership is fully aware of this potential and probably have what they believe to be countermeasures. Whether those proposed countermeasures will work not, no one knows, so all we can do is wait for the inevitable and be entertained by China's responses.
