Watching History Rhyme
Interesting watching history repeat itself. First a proxy war featuring US v China, and to a lesser extent, Russia in Viet Nam, followed by Russia v US in Afghanistan, followed by US v Russia in Afghanistan now morphing into Russia and to a lesser extent, China v US and Europe in Ukraine.
The Vietnamese ran the French and Americans out of their country and quickly discovered that they couldn’t run a successful country. They are now croney capitalists.
The Afghanistanis ran both the Russians and the Americans out and are discovering the same thing.
Ukraine: Same thing coming down but with a likely alignment with the EU.
Kinda sucks to be the proxy though.
