Writing in Real Clear World, Brandon J. Weichert argues that, “rapidly over the whole of Eurasia as the Americans flee from Afghanistan, are a steel trap. They will ensnare all peoples unfortunate enough to find themselves living within reach of the ideological fangs of these Eurasian autocrats. With the disastrous end of America’s quixotic mission to turn Afghanistan into Arizona, China and Russia are now using Afghanistan as a highway to expand their power beyond their territories—just as these powers did until 600 years ago, when China’s Silk Road was the primary trading route linking Asia with the Middle East and Europe.”
The American collapse in Afghanistan is not an isolated event under President Joe Biden’s leadership. We are in the terminal decline phase of the end of empire, or in America’s case, superpower. What comes next will be horrific for America.
Brandon J. Weichert joined his friends, Gordon G. Chang and John Batchelor on the new John Batchelor Show to discuss his recent Real Clear Politics op-ed about the new space alliance between China and Russia.

In this lecture, geopolitical analyst, Brandon J. Weichert, details how the increases in volatility in the global energy market (thanks to greater tensions with Iran) will disproportionately benefit the Russian Federation, which is almost entirely dependent on the price of fossil fuels being high, in order to make Russia strong.
“In The Weichert Report’s forthcoming EBOOK ‘Strategies for Countering the Real Russian Threat In 2018,’ you will be given an in-depth assessment on Russian capabilities and intentions in all four of these threat areas. More importantly, you will see that Russia is far from being a monolithic juggernaut, and that the United States has the means to counter and rollback these Russian threats outside of the military realm.”
I was interviewed by Chris Buskirk of the “Seth & Chris Show” where I discussed my recent research into the Russian (non)-threat and how America is in danger of turning Russia into an actual threat, when it is in reality a potential strategic partner.
Dr. Marek Jan Chodakiewicz offers his assessment on Belarusian grand strategy and the possibility that Alexander Lukashenko is about to be overthrown.
This week’s After Action Report focuses exclusively on the geopolitical fallout from the failed Turkey coup.
