    [Tariq Ali] Afghanistan, China & the Decline of U.S. Power (part 2)

    [Tariq Ali] Afghanistan, China & the Decline of U.S. Power (part 2)

    The ignominious debacle in Afghanistan was predictable and predicted. Afghans, like most people, don't appreciate foreign invaders occupying their country. Just ask the British and the Russians. But the U.S., in its imperial hubris, thought it was different. It would nation-build in Afghanistan and bring democracy to that land. Meanwhile, China is watching the U.S. squander its wealth on military adventures. The decline of U.S. power is evident. In its place, China is rapidly expanding its influence. Its Belt and Road Initiative is an ambitious global infrastructure project, a new Silk Road. China, as the quip goes, had a bad couple of centuries of wars, famine and disease but now it is back. It’s a force to be reckoned with. Its economic clout is increasing and it will soon be the world's biggest economy.

Why remove them every week

Leave the episode uploaded. I will pay.

Occupy episode

You have clearly overplayed the hand with Occupy which had overrated, by you, attributable political underpinnings and dismissed the whole of the Vietnam, civil rights and feminist era.

MY FAV PODCAST but NO feed

Quality all the way- But Seems they are more interested in hiding & controlling content than in getting the info out. No way to even pay to get the other shows apparently on here! If the left was more generous of info like this we could avoid the ignorance which will cause U.S. to soon fall into AUTHORITARIAN RULE.
