Belt and Road and Tang

People imagine dread of being in places like Afghanistan and Kurgystan, but once these places were as safe and lovely as Marin County or Savannah, Georgia. What changed is trade lanes.  The Tang Dynasty was China's golden era, and those countries thrived with China in the Tang Dynasty because of trade.  China is deliberately restoring the trade lanes.

We trespass in those country's back yards and pick fights.  The Chinese have an advantage over us in policy.

Check out this remnant from long ago.
