The Graveyard of Empires ft. Conflicts of Interest Ep. 179

by | Aug 16, 2021

The hosts of Conflicts of Interest, Kyle Anzalone and Will Porter join me to discuss the unfolding events in Afghanistan. We discuss myriad topics, including what a Taliban government might look like, why Afghanistan fell so quickly, what the war’s legacy could be, and how the close of the war relates to Biden’s larger cold war footing with China.
