"China has offered to pay for the construction of a military base for a brigade of troops in Afghanistan's remote northeastern Badakhshan province to prevent militant incursions into its territory.

"This is part of the understanding we have with China, it does not mean that Chinese troops or advisers will be based there," Gen. Dawlat Waziri, chief Defense Ministry spokesman, told Arab News.

Really… no active Chinese on the ground at a Chinese paid for base camp? Active military training ground is what Afghanistan now is. China wants to block any potential bad actors types from entering China and their "western Muslim" territories in the future. Plus, an added bonus to military training….the local sometime shoot back keep all on their toes.

Yep. I saw that coming a couple of years ago, and was laughed at for saying so. Well, surprise, surprise, surprise!

I'm sure they've already made deals with the Taliban, for when the government in Kabul finally goes kaboom.
