Those in favor of U.S. intervention in Ukraine must agree China has the right to aid Cuba

Those that are fervent supporters of U.S. intervention in the Ukraine/Russia conflict won’t have a leg to stand on if they argue China has no business investing in Cuba. If you support one you must support the other.

If the report in the Wall Street Journal is true, China is using our own money to slowly encircle us. They’ve invested heavily in South America and now they’re reportedly investing in Cuba. Given the state of U.S. culture I fear we won’t even put up a fight when the invasion comes.

Officials familiar with the matter said that China has agreed to pay cash-strapped Cuba several billion dollars to allow it to build the eavesdropping station and that the two countries had reached an agreement in principle. 

The revelation about the planned site has sparked alarm within the Biden administration because of Cuba’s proximity to the U.S. mainland. Washington regards Beijing as its most significant economic and military rival. A Chinese base with advanced military and intelligence capabilities in the U.S.’s backyard could be an unprecedented new threat.

Take it all with a grain of salt since the information comes from “unnamed sources.” This could all be a bunch of baloney to spend more of our money on junk.
