Today, The Two Mikes talked with Ed Yeranian, the always excellent, Cairo-based foreign correspondent.
Mr. Yeranian spoke about the impact of Biden’s Afghan debacle, saying that while most Middle East governments have not criticized Biden’s lethal skedaddle, not all of the regimes are happy about allowing the Taliban full-sway in the country and allowing a strategic airbase to fall into the hands of the Chinese.
Mr. Yeranian explained that neither Iran nor Saudi Arabia will welcome the Chinese occupying Bagram airbase, and estimated that Moscow will share their distrust of a Chinese strategic airbase in Afghanistan.
Turning to Qatar, Mr. Yeranian said that letting the Qataris and Turks run Kabul Airport is like putting the fox in the hen house.
Both of those governments are known to have turned a blind eye toward Islamist fighters leaving Afghanistan for other fields of jihad, in Africa for example.
Indeed, there is pretty solid reporting that the Qatar regime, at times, has assisted those fighters to travel securely to their destinations.
The Mike’s never use the mainstream fake Gutter.
It’s Khatar rhymes with Zatar!
