They'd rather not discuss the stunning reversal by a top Trump diplomat confirming a quid pro quo involving aid to Ukraine.
The Chinese unlike the USA and the United Fruit Company in Guatemala when the US government via CIA ensured the private interests of an American corporation were secured. With the use of public money the overthrow of Guatemala's duly elected Socialist Government was organized. We saw the same occur in Chile Panama and the failed attempt in Nicaragua. This century we witnessed the invasion of Iraq which guaranteed Exxon's control of the Iraqi Oil Fields. China has not done any of that. Currently, the USA is shipping 30 mill barrels of oil a month out of Syria and who has that contract? The betrayal and displacement of the Kurds was to ensure America controlled the oil. The US army hasn't left Syria as Trump has said it did. All this fake pull out was simply a smokescreen so that neither the Kurds nor Syrians could control that resource. However, Trump has shot himself in the proverbial foot because without the Kurds the Americans are left blind on the ground in terms of any intelligence.
Thanks to China it seems the Blue Dot Network is little more than the Americans being forced to curtail their usual practice of destroying governments in order to assist private multinationals into places like Venezuela Iran, Yemen Libya Cuba not simply for their political ideologies but their resources. Corporations via Citizens United have been doing deals with US governments for their shareholders alone for decades using citizens money. Lobbying, bribing , promising politicians jobs on retirement and buying them at will. Genie Oil is in Israeli occupied territory of Syria's Golan Heights Rupert Murdoch is a director. These are the real voices who are complaining about China's Soft Diplomacy. Today the public voice of Trump can be saying. "We should simply take their oil" when in fact the American government isn't taking over anything. They are mercenaries working for multinational companies like Exxon. Today the term "Banana Republics" has changed to the " Oil Republics" that's all. (ODT)
