China helps Afghanistan set up a counterterrorism base

China is helping Afghanistan to set up a mountain brigade in Afghanistan to boost counterterrorism efforts.

Afghanistan said there would be no Chinese military personnel of any kind on Afghan soil at any time.

Sources close to the Chinese military earlier told the Post that China had funded and started building a training camp for Afghan troops in Afghanistan’s isolated Wakhan Corridor – a narrow strip of inhospitable and barely accessible land extending about 350km from the northern Afghan province of Badakhshan to China’s Muslim region of Xinjiang.

Xinjiang is a problem province for China. China views Xinjian as a source of terrorism, separatism and extremism.

China has given more than US$70 million in military aid to Afghanistan in the last three years.

  5. And to be fair, while “China” and “Cruelty” are basically synonyms, it was only a VERY odd set of historical happenstances that ever had us over there in the first place. When China is done destroying all traces of Uighur culture, the players in the Stans will have to decide whether they want to fight to preserve their cultural independence, or be gradually assimilated economically and then culturally while (potentially) profiting along the way.

  7. The most important thing that is happening to defeat the muslim terrorists is the easy availability of such things as this podcast by ex-muslims Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment & the free downloads of ‘The God Delusion’ in Arabic & other languages of Muslim majority regions. Fortunately membership in the Christian Taliban in the US is dropping & the religious right is only in power in the US because of gerrymandering & voter suppression. I hope those aren’t enough to save their seats in Congress in November. Of course the sort of critical thinking that makes people realize that Islam & Christianity are loads of BS will also make them realize the same about the latest pronouncements from the Communist Party of China, so China can’t afford to encourage that.

  9. China wants to keep Pakistan in business in Afghanistan – it’s Pakistan’s business to train terrorists against India. China wants its own direct insurance policy in Afghanistan, as a guarantee that its jihadists won’t destabilize Xinjiang. As a safeguard, China is occupying the Wakhan corridor, just as the Soviets did during the Afghan War.
