Obama and Vietnam-What Says Friendship Better Than Arms Sales?
Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 24, 2016
The Vietnamese arms sales embargo was just a US and US puppet thing. Others, notably Russia, could sell all the market could stand. We can’t have that can we?
This new friend will have to pay the price in being in the front lines against China. How effective they will be against a fellow communist entity, only time will tell. The Vietnamese aren’t stupid.It seems to me they could easily play this to theirs and China’s advantage.
Joining NATO, receiving foreign aid or being a friend to the US is not all rainbows and unicorns. There are usually mandatory arms purchase requirements, accepting a US military presence, allowing CIA stations and directives on making the correct noises in the press and UN.
This deal is not made out of kindness of the heart.
Be seeing you
