Jane’s Addiction is a well-known band. It has a catch-phrase: “nothing’s shocking”! This phrase does not quite cover all the emotions and feelings that I have but it’s a start.
I have a friend, let’s call him “Bob”. Bob works on my cars. He is a great guy, a hard worker and a fairly well-liked business owner.
Bob decided to take his parents to Puerto Vallarta in Mexico as a Christmas present. He said while he was there he noticed that China was building military installations and offering military training to Mexican citizens.
Bob said he saw people flying what looked like surf boards back and forth out into the ocean. He said he was told that he could not take pictures of this because it was a military exercise.
I am interested in why the Chinese are on the American border training the Mexican military. The role of the State Department is to help prevent war from reaching our shores and borders. But here are the Chinese on our border training Mexican soldiers. The State Department is still to address this matter.
America has several bases in neighbouring countries to China. It also recently ended a lithium conglomerate between Bolivia and China by contributing to the recent coup there. China’s presence on our border is the result of lack of planning and self-interest.
We are losing our global influence. The cracks in President Donald Trump’s foreign policy are widening for everyone to see. This is not the best we as a people can do. We put up with this probably because we don’t know where the truth lies.
My friend Bob told me Mexico was trading oil for weapons, from Canada and China! It’s good to hear that Mexico feels that they can still trust Canada!
The ousted president of Bolivia and thousands of refugees are being protected in Mexico from American aggression while the Statue of Liberty sheds a tear off the east coast. It is an intercession for our salvation, a prayer that our country won’t prey on the destitute of this world any long.
