Argentina Turns to Russia and China

    Russia has problems financing the development of its own oil fields and has neither the expertise nor technology to exploit shale formations. China also has no expertise in shale exploration. India? Get serious. As far as the statement that China is attempting to build a canal through Nicaragua to rival the Panama Canal, it appears the author of this article buys a lot of bridges in Brooklyn.

      “neither the expertise nor technology to exploit shale formations.”

      Probably, but the Chinese are masters at industrial espionage. I fully expect them to have the technology in a couple of years thru theft.

        It is very difficult to steal shale expertise and technology. It’s not like stealing blueprint and building something..

    Better them than us, Argentina is a dead beat and has been for a century. Loaning them money is for idiots and fools.

    Russia and China are probably both eager for any alliance that makes America look like a goof in its own backyard. We’re silly to think these won’t happen.

    Communists aren’t going to save Latin American twits. The Russians learned their lesson once with that jack*a*s*s blowhard Castro. But the Latin Americans do possess a very strong streak that America=evil, anything else=superior and good for them. So that will encourage Russia and China and Al Qaeda to mess in our backyard while we have a president who believes like the Latinos that America is an evil self-deluding imperial monster whose self-regard is causing most of the trouble in the world.
