We still have the Monroe Doctrine? I thought the global corporatists sold that along with the Panama Canal?

The world is China's apple this century.

The Monroe doctrine only comes into play if China starts annexing Latin American territory. Heck - the Chinese don't even have the equipment to stage an invasion of Indonesia (barely 2,000 miles away from China) - let alone invade and hold territory 10,000 miles away in Latin America. All the same, I am happy to see that China is taking its turn at throwing good money into bottomless Third World money pits. I'm sure aid will earn the Chinese as much gratitude in Third World hellholes as it did the West.

China will slowly look more and more like the US, a country they have long admired.
Our present leadership is trying to get us to look more and more like Cuba. A country they have long admired.
Look at the health care they got.
