The head of the southern command of the United States identified China as a threat to security in the Caribbean

17

The head of the Southern Command of the United States (US SOUTHCOM) Admiral Craig Fuller outlined the threats that exist for American interests in his area of ​​responsibility. This happened during his visit to the countries of the Caribbean: Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.


In particular, the official said that the security problems are aggravated by the crisis in Venezuela, from which illegal export of drugs doubled. A high-ranking officer explained this by saying that the “regime of Nicolas Maduro” compensates for the drop in income from traditional industries that stopped in the country.

In addition, Mr. Fuller criticized China, whose influence over the Caribbean has recently been strengthened in the United States. In particular, it was mentioned that 25 of the 31 countries of the Western Hemisphere are pleased to welcome Beijing's infrastructure projects. In addition, not so long ago, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic refused to recognize Taiwan in favor of the Chinese government, which was appreciated by Beijing.

Russia was also mentioned in passing, mainly in conjunction with China. In particular, it was said that Moscow does not share the democratic principles that Washington professes. Russian aid to the Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro was cited as an example of such disagreement.

    China is preparing for war - this is clear to any fool. It is only the agents of Beijing and the Chinese oligarchy who are best friends. Of course, you can sell for nothing (they really bashfully call it the word "rent") the land of the Far East and Siberia. And while yelling at all angles, that our worst enemy is the United States. The scam is primitive, but it works on zombies. In the two world wars, the USA were our strategic allies, what prevents us from being allies in the third world war? And agents of Beijing, agents of the oligarchy and zombies interfere. Something like that.

    In particular, it was said that Moscow does not share the democratic principles that Washington professes.
    Correctly said - does not share. He doesn’t share the fact that the goat-bearded Sam pokes his nose wherever he falls, dictates to sovereign nations how to live, with whom to make friends and with whom to trade, invades a stranger’s house without asking, crap there and fires and massacres, dancing at the same time: " We came and he died. " So it came to the north:

    Europe is already tired of these American "corps de ballet" and is beginning to timidly bend its European line:
