Multipolarity will trash the dollar and roil commodity supply chains. From Nick Giambruno at internationalman.com:
“You have the watches, but we have the time.”
The Taliban often referred to this old Afghan saying when discussing their fight against the Americans.
Ultimately, they were proven correct.
After almost two decades of conflict, an insurgent army from one of the world’s poorest nations inflicted a decisive military defeat on the US, the global superpower that upholds the unipolar world order.
The US government’s total failure in Afghanistan—the longest war in American history—signifies a crucial moment and turning point in world history.
The Soviet Union collapsed about two years after the Red Army was defeated and withdrew from Afghanistan.
As we approach the second anniversary of the American retreat, could a similar fate be in store for the US?
While nobody knows the future, there is an excellent chance that the colossal failure in Afghanistan could accelerate the unraveling of the geopolitical power of the US and the shift to a multipolar world order.
Afghanistan’s strategic position has always made it a coveted prize in the Eurasian landscape.
As shown in the image below, Afghanistan is situated in the center of Eurasia, at the crossroads of China, Iran, and Russia—the three primary challengers to the US-led world order.
This central location is why Afghanistan has enormous geopolitical importance and why the US desired a strategic military presence there.
Collapse is part of Order Out of Chaos.
The reset will make this time look like the good old days.
Enjoy while you can.
