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.
