Follow that, we analyze the implications of China’s New Silk Road finally reaching Afghanistan, with rail cargo having passed through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan in linking together eastern China and northern Afghanistan for the first time ever. Then we take a look at how General Khalifa Haftar and his forces’ seizure of Libya’s main oil terminals deals a heavy blow the country’s UN-recognized Government of National Accord. Once that’s done, we talk about the US-Indian military exercises going on right now in the Chinese-bordering province of Uttarakhand, and Russia’s curious decision to hold its own drills with Pakistan sometime in the near future. Lastly, we analyze the Russian-American cessation of hostilities agreement in Syria and explain why it’s more about Raqqa than Aleppo.
