GORDON CHANG, Contributor, Gatestone Institute, Newsweek, Author, “The Coming Collapse of China,” “Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes the World, “Losing South Korea,” and “The Great US-China Tech War,” @Gordongchang

  • Gordon Chang: Xi Jinping is trying to move China back to the 1950s - Xi is attacking China’s technology sector, forcing through a “common prosperity” campaign, etc.
  • Chang: Common prosperity is not merely a slogan, it is more enduring
  • China accuses the U.S. of “barbaric acts”
  • U.S. intel community’s summary on the origins of COVID-19: Lab leak theory plausible

JAMES JAY CARAFANO, Vice President, Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy, The Heritage Foundation, Author, "Brutal War," @JJCarafano

  • Afghanistan is not in the President’s rear view mirror: the Hostage situation, transnational terrorism, and more
  • James Carafano: As long as the Taliban and/or the Haqqani network do not meddle in Pakistan’s affairs, they do not care what they do
  • Carafano: This administration is going to try and normalize relations with the Taliban, who in turn, will not go after ISIS-K, Al-Qaeda, etc.
  • Carafano: We as conservatives have always treated the movement as a buffet table - That doesn’t cut it anymore

BRIG. GEN. DON BOLDUC, Candidate for the U.S. Senate, New Hampshire, Retired Brigadier General and Special Ops Africa, U.S. Army, @GenDonBolduc

  • Brig. Gen. Don Bolduc talks about America’s counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan
  • Brig. Gen. Bolduc: Between 2010-2013, the Afghan government controlled 90% of the country, the Taliban and Al-Qaeda were rendered ineffective and “we were well on our way to transitioning [military operations] to [the Afghans].”
  • Where did things take a turn for the worst? Gen. Milley and others allowed the Obama administration to alter operations on the ground in Afghanistan
