In a recent video posted on YouTube by China Dragon TV, on August 17, 2021, Professor Zhang Weiwei, together with another TV pundit Jin Canrong, mocked the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Zhang Weiwei is an internet celebrity and a top propaganda consultant for the Politburo of the CCP in China.  He questioned the ability of the U.S. military to counter China, after it had been fighting for 20 years in Afghanistan and couldn’t defeat the Taliban.  He criticized the U.S. leaders for their lack of “overall thinking” and always making “strategic mistakes”. Another guest, Jin Canrong, a well-known TV pundit in China, described Biden administration’s diplomatic approaches as “chaotic.”
