US seems to be a double head monster. one is directed by deep state of america pushing their policy and the 2nd head is completely govern by china. the head of state is peddling china's agenda in every part of the world by giving them enough space (afghanistan). the other half is bound by their policy n trying hard to implement it. sometimes both the interest clash and thats when we see the US getting confused. countries relying on america for security r doing a mistake
