Chinese army nears USA's borders
pravda ^ | 19.05.2009 | Vladimir Anokhin

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva arrived in China for a visit. Strange as it may seem, there can be hardly any information found about the visit, which takes place on May 18-20. It brings up the idea that South America is working on an alliance with Asia’s largest states. It is not ruled out that China may eventually strengthen its influence near the borders of the United States and even set up Chinese army bases in the region. Brazil, the largest country of Latin America, suffered political and economic cataclysms during the 1990s just like the USSR. The largest country of the region has never been wealthy. Like most oligarchic countries, which are predominant in Latin America, only two percent of the population owns 97 percent of the nation’s wealth.

Brazil’s official language is Portuguese, whereas people in all other countries of the region speak Spanish. This peculiarity could probably be the reason why the country failed to obtain close allies in South America. The county has always stood alone from economic, political and military processes on the continent, although it has enormous natural resources.

China is also a lonesome state in its own region. This huge country has problems with almost all of its neighbors. China has been trying to find as many allies and followers as possible on remote continents. The Chinese government realizes that it may eventually become the prime enemy for the Western world.

Brazil and China established their strategic partnership in 1993. China has become the largest consumer of Brazilian goods. The Brazilian president stated prior to his visit to China that the volume of the trade turnover between the two countries could increase eleven times.

Brazil and China have a great deal of opportunities for cooperation in the energy field. For example, China signed a deal with Brazil’s oil giant Petrobras to deliver up to 160,000 barrels of oil a day to the petrochemical branch of China’s Sinopec and to PetroChina. In return, China offered Petrobras $10 billion for the development of its new enterprises.

The construction of Embraer Virtual Lab became Brazil’s most landmark achievement in China (Embraer is a Brazilian aircraft-maker, one of the world’s leading makers of regional passenger liners).

The cooperation between Brazil and China is mostly based on barter agreements. China may become Brazil’s most reliable partner in the field of defense cooperation, experts say. It goes without saying that China will do anything to set up its army bases in Latin America.

At this point I’m not sure it really matters? In fact, if we had the Chinese take over, we’d get two pluses:

The Chinese wouldn’t allow gay marriage, or marriage to goats or whatever other sick thing the left wants.

The Chinese wouldn’t tolerate the muslim’s BS.

I, for one, welcome our Chinese overlords.

The Chinese will put the troublemakers ... read leftist traitors up against the wall and dispose of them ... They know that the malcontents will always be malcontents so they will eliminate them

Wow... if that’s the case, you’re going to get me to start wishing for a Chinese takeover!

We should all be allowed to own one AK-47 knock-off each for defense. I’m sure the Chinese would be happy to sell them to us.

“As though Panama & Long Beach were on the other side of the world!”Actually, from Brazil’s frame of reference they are.

That’s because the Chinese know what real problems are and don’t want to put up with people who create more problems.

“I, for one, welcome our Chinese overlords.”

And I welcome the very cute Jet Li.

It would be almost too funny if they did and we used them to successfully defend ourselves against them.

Three. We'd also be less socialist...

Let’s not get carried away there, Bunkie. I will say there was a strange stability within the west, and the world, during the Cold War that doesn’t exist now. A lot has bubbled up since, that had been suppressed, and most of it isn’t good.

I don’t think China has any interest in the US, or the west, beyond rendering them ineffective adversaries. Africa offers the greatest promise with the least resistance, it has tremendous natural resources, plus vast land areas (some known for abundant production) that are not being utilized . China also knows how to deal with people like Mugabe (the west seems to have forgotten) and I must say the quality of life would probably improve for the inhabitants.

the nightmare scenario that Ronald Reagan tried to warn us about during the Contra War is coming to pass. (leftist governments taking over Latin America, with a hostile Communist power sponsoring them and gaining a military presence). Surely to be followed by hundreds of millions of refugees fleeing northward.

I should also tell you that Brazil is thinking about entering an alliance with Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela, and is going to buy lots of Russian equipment, and possibly base Russian military units (Like Venezuela).

Russia/the “Former” USSR, China, Brazil, other communist/islamist countries, and OPEC (Including Venezuela), are planning to simultaneously dump the dollar

A lot of us think you are quite wrong.

BTW, how many years have you lived in China?

Not only is China in our back yard, so are the Russians, Iranians, North Koreans, and other undesirable countries and terrorist groups.

Hope your assertion that I am wrong is more reasoned than your assumption that I live in China.

Actually, I didn’t assume you lived in China at all.

I assumed you’d never set foot in the place given your . . .

flawed

. . . perspective. Which shows negligible, or less, appreciation for the cultural mind-sets, priorities, goals, memes, habits etc.

Some of us have lived there longer than a dozen years.
