409. (Video) Bill Gertz: US Withdrawal from Afghanistan a ‘Strategic Success’ for China | Clip

Was the United States withdrawal from Afghanistan a ‘strategic success’ for China? The US has now officially withdrawn from Afghanistan, and President Joe Biden states that one of the main reasons for doing so was to allow the US to ‘shore up’ and refocus US military resources on greater threats. Biden pointed to the ‘serious competition with China’ that the US is currently engaged in. However, at the same time as the US withdrawal is happening, the Chinese government is developing deeper diplomatic relations with the Taliban, and some analysts say that China even wanted to get the US out of Afghanistan. To learn more about this development, and what it means for the US, we sat down for an interview with Bill Gertz, national security correspondent with The Washington Times and author of “Deceiving the Sky: Inside Communist China’s Drive for Global Supremacy.”
