Curious what your take is on Kadyrov. Is he just Putin's minion? Is he fearing loss of his own power if extremist fervor spreads to his region amid US defeat, or does he really believe Taliban are just another US creation?
He's a fascinating political character to me. I've never quite been able to pin down who or what he really is.
