But, but, didn’t The One play very nice with both of these countries recently?
Isn’t Viet Nam one of the TPP countries?
If Hillary wins those Russian bases will be next door to our bases there; Hillary/Obama love these old commie foes of ours...
I don’t see how the U.S. can have bases on Russia’s doorstep in eastern Europe, but then try to complain if Russia does the same? Cuba can just as much invite Russia in as Latvia can us.
Why would anyone think that Russia wants a war with the US?
Even with Obozo still in office, I don’t think Cuba wants to go back to total dependency on Russia, and that’s exactly what would happen if Cuba let Russian military bases back in. With warming relations with the US, Cuba wants, and needs, US investment dollars to bootstrap its economy, in terms of tourism, sugar, and other Cuban products.
It’s like old times! Did the USN store any of the mines they removed from Haiphong Harbour? Economizing’s important.
Meaning our first no-tariff export's also a no-brainer:
Russia is slapping the US because they can. They know how weak our leaders are. Such a shame. Hopefully, Nov. 8th will turn this around.
These are OLD spy bases....
I hate sequels
While Vietnam is an economic basket case and will welcome “investment” from just about anyone, I’d think they would nix a Russian military base because of the joint Chicom/Rooskie naval exercises a couple of weeks ago. They might let them build some commercial ports and land transport hubs, though.
The Cubans, and Venezuelans, however, don’t care what Obama thinks, so bases there are probably a done deal. Heck, the Venezuelans have already let Iran build facilities there.
But, but, we’re the world’s policeman!
It’s okay for us to have military bases all
over the globe, because we’re sincere
enough, we’re humble enough,
and doggone it, people like us.
Besides, we always have our friends’ backs,
unless they’re Kurds or something.
Vietnam is an economic basket case
If Hellary wins, the Russians will get a base in the Florida Keys.
If she wins, anyone with money has a base in the White House. That much has become completely clear to everyone.
Vietnam does not allow any countries to establish a military base in the country, Foreign Ministrys Spokesperson Le Hai Binh has stated
However, US, Japanese and French warships have recently made port calls at Cam Ranh.
