I hate to say this but it seems as long as someone is a useful idiot the USA makes all kinds of promises and even gives paper money to help in a joint goal....But once the relationship becomes inconvenient you are on you own, Bubba.. Look at history if anyone thinks I am wrong. But my generation is of the Vietnam era so I am bias towards anything Uncle Scammy promises.
China does not have to do a military invasion as they just move in and buy property and sooner or later buy your politicians and companies who give them favorable deals and tech. Happening all over S.E. Asia right under everyone's noses.
Heritage Foundation’s China Global Investment Tracker follows large Chinese investments, excluding bonds, around the world. The leading recipient of these kinds of investments is the United States, which received over $180 billion from January 2005 through June 2019. Chinese investment in 2019 is on pace to reach just $5 billion. The US has now passed legislation limiting Chinese access to not only technology but also personal data, so the 2017 spending level of $25 billion will be difficult to regain.
The deals described in the tracker are worth $100 million or more. More important, they are voluntary transactions that let Americans make their own choices. Chinese purchases benefit Americans who hold desirable assets—city property and large corporations but also individual family homes (not in the tracker). Chinese investment helps support a small number of American jobs.
If President Trump loses Re-election then all Australia will have to choose between for a major ally is two Communist world super powers.
Whoever was to blame, an American guarantee was dishonored. An ethnic group that wanted only to speak its language and pursue its cultural traditions, as an autonomous region under the Iraqi flag, has since been systematically uprooted and dispersed. The totalitarian state of Iraq has driven hundreds of thousands of Kurds out of their homes. Thirty thousand Kurdish pesh rnerga (“those who face death”)—Mulla Mustafa's followers—were reported to he In concentration camps. Amnesty International has the names of 389 hostages—innocent wives and children of rebel soldiers now fighting once again in the hills—who have been jailed by Iraq, without medical care, in defiance of anybody's idea of human rights. Mulla Mustafa, now 75 and ill, is in America trying to call Mr. Carter's attention to the plight of his people,
im a huge fan of the kurds but putting this all on trump is nonsense pretty much every administration since the 70s and given the kurds a plate of poo and told them to ask for seconds after they have fought and bled for us REPEATEDLY each time being told im sorry but next time it will be different and still time after time they stood up and answered our call only again to be screwed over .
Making certain the Kurdish pleas are not heard by President Carter is the man who took over covert connections with the Kurds from Colonel Kennedy in 1973, and who then personally handled the supply and cutoff decisions for Mr. Kissinger: Harold H. Saunders, whose reincarnation in the Carter Administration is as Director of Intelligence for the Department of State. As he focuses on the Mideast, Plosident Carter would do well to consider the only human beings in that area currently being harassed, and their leaders executed, for daring to demand the kind of internal autonomy now being offered to Palestinian Arabs, and rejected by Iraq's rejectionists, The Kurdish sellout was a stain on the Nixon‐Ford years: by turning away, by refusing to rectify a wrong, Mr. Carter tacitly makes that disgrace his own.
