If the report are correct, #China is on wrong footsteps of other occupiers and carving its grave before time in grave yard of the empires Afghanistan. I recommend China to support a free and fair election; and a government in result of that election in Afghanistan. Do not interfere in neighbors affairs and be against foreign bases in Afghanistan that will save China and the region.
No one's base on Afghan land can save anyone but is endangering Afghanistan, region and the countries that build bases in Afghanistan. Afghanistan is heartland of Asia, hearts can not tolerate cholesterol that is clear medically and I am telling China geopolitically to refrain and not repeat the history of invasion in Afghanistan.
China my think Islamic State Khorasan (IS-K) is threat to China, It will be the biggest geopolitical mistake of Chinese leadership to support and welcome the invasion of Afghanistan in pretext of war on terror which will open doors for west to build a dozen of bases in Afghanistan. IS-K is supported by Pakistan which is Chinese ally in the region. That mean IS-K and other insurgents are supported by China for the destruction of Afghanistan now under that pretext, China also want to build their bases and invade Afghanistan.
LET ME WARN CHINA: The move of China to have military base in Afghanistan will be considered a threat to the whole STANS mindset region(see picture) and will start a new cold war between Chinese mindset and the STAN mindset region countries. I recommend China to not repeat the biggest mistake of starting another cold war which will be the bigger threat to Chinese and the regional progress.
To mitigate the treat, First China must stop Pakistan from supporting the insurgent groups, which China say are threat to China, and that insurgency is now the only reason for others to have bases in Afghanistan, which China consider problem.
Second, China should support free and fair election in Afghanistan and do not accept puppet leaders imposed on Afghans and support real democracy in Afghanistan. This will solve the puzzle Chinese did not understood for decades and always mad bad moves that swallowed the progress of the region and China, those bad moves are:
First, China not supporting a democratic process in Afghanistan after the end of Soviet invasion. Second, supporting Pakistan stance on Taliban and insurgency in Afghanistan. Third, supporting invasion of west under the pretext of war on terror and starting a race of military bases in Afghanistan. Chinese are good in manufacturing toys, politics is not their business. At this time it is best for China to focus on production, otherwise once again the history will repeat and there will more Hong Kongs and Tiwans on your land.
If China continue the same double standard and follow their Hen forward policy of capturing Uyghurs and now targeting Afghanistan, is not acceptable. This will force Afghans to asked a third party to build much stronger bases on the Pamir (World top) which will start a new race of bases and military maneuvers in the region, ultimately very bad for China.
