Joe Did That: China to Build Military Base on Border With Afghanistan

Wally Santana

In a totally unexpected development that no one could have seen coming — just kidding; a semi-well-informed ninth-grader could have seen this coming, a mile away — lawmakers in Tajikistan announced on Wednesday that China would build a new $10 million military base on the nation’s border with Afghanistan.

Tajik officials claimed the base would belong to Tajikistan, not China, and house Tajik troops.

The Tajik officials then went off to sell several bridges.

As reported by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), the announcement follows years of speculation that China has secretly operated a base in Tajikistan. RFE/RL cited leaked diplomatic exchanges in its report. So there it is — finally out in the open. How could this happen, you ask?

Joe did that.

Before we continue, let’s take a look at the below map and the location of the “Tajik” military base.

While Tajik officials have expressed concern over the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, China has extended support of the most brutal terrorist organization on the planet. Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with senior Taliban officials on Monday and agreed to a variety of trade deals allowing the Islamist extremist group to export marble, pistachios, and other native goods into the Chinese market. Allowing?

Joe did that.

No nation, including Tajikistan and China, has officially recognized the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan — although I do wonder about the over/under on Biden becoming the first to recognize the murderous terrorist organization that he alone allowed to sweep into power.

Here are several details about the deal, as reported by Asia-Plus:

The lower chamber of Tajikistan’s parliament confirmed on Wednesday that the Chinese Ministry of Public Security would “construct and outfit the facility for Tajikistan’s special rapid deployment police unit” on the Tajik-Afghan border. […]

The fact that the base is being built by China’s police force may raise eyebrows.

Nah, why should eyebrows be raised? No big deal, right?

Tajikistan’s First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, Abdurahman Alamshozoda, admitted that Tajikistan would not have control of the site until China completed the “outfitting” of the military base, according to Breitbart, but emphasized that it would be a Tajik, and not Chinese, outpost once completed.

Uh-huh, sure it will.

Another Tajik lawmaker, Tolibkhon Azimzoda, said on Wednesday that the two countries agreed on moving forward with the project “amid the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan and growing security threats along the country’s border.” What could possibly go wrong?

Joe did that.

Come to think of it, pretty much everything wrong in the world — at least in America — from the southern border crisis to the inflation crisis to the oil crisis to the jobs crisis to the supply chain crisis, to the complete economic crisis, and more can be summed up in just three words:

Joe did that.
