I have lived in both China and Taiwan. The former has more problems than it can deal with; the latter is an earth-shattering success.

CIA had a history of countering the communists in China during the early days of the Cold War when CCP won the Chinese Civil War. CIA also trained the Tibetan freedom fighters during those days.

The name of the great American patriot and CIA agent Douglas Mackiernan who got killed due to a misunderstanding in Tibet when he was on his way to India from Xinjiang will be familiar to those who have read up on the subject.

But when the US decided to shake hands with China to counter the Soviet Union all those sacrifices went down the drain.

One year after Afghanistan, spy agencies pivot toward China

In other words: One year after the Afghanistan debacle, American neolib-neocon spy agencies pivot towards their next debacle with China. In a sane world, the CIA would have been disbanded long ago.

Backward Nations such as Afghanistan, will probably prevail during an all-out Nuclear War, and that sets a worrying view for the future of Human kind.

China has spies everywhere

It's just common sense there'd be countermeasures

In a sane world, the CIA would have been disbanded long ago.

In a sane world, KGB/FSB, MSS, and all spy agencies would have been disbanded long ago

(Unless ya wanna be spied on, whether it's one or another)
