U.S. Weighs Expanded Military Presence in the Philippines
The leaders of the U.S. Empire are like the energizer bunny, they just don't stop.
WaPo reports that the Obama administration is considering significantly expanding the U.S. military presence in the Philippines, two decades after the island nation evicted American forces from their biggest base in the Pacific. Such an expansion would be the latest in a series of strategic moves aimed at surrounding China.
Someday a book will be written about the nutjob who wrote up the plan for the U.S. to control the world (as the country declines domestically).
Note to Obama: One of the key reasons the deficit isn't worse is because China has bought up a trillion dollars plus of the debt and helped keep US interest rates low. Do you really want to piss these people off?
