In a developing situation inside Kabul, Afghanistan, we saw what a lack of planning does to the tens of thousands of Americans still left behind in the country. As the Taliban takes control of the Afghan capital, what could have gone better? 

The Biden administration is facing massive pressure from observers inside and outside of the United States. But what exactly went wrong in the process? 

China is also quick to jump in and recognize the Taliban. What is their role in all this? And how can China benefit from a diplomatic relationship?

All these questions can be answered by our guest, Dr. Anders Corr. He is the publisher of the Journal of Political Risk and the head of Corr Analytics. In our discussion, we talk about the various aspects of the Afghan situation. We also focus on how China is using this as an opportunity to wage political warfare against the West.
