. November 2, 2009 SouthAmerica: The United States government is already buried in debt up to its eyeballs, but that did not stop the US government from coming up with new ways to waste even more the money borrowed from China. And last Friday the United States sealed a new agreement with Colombia that will cost the US taxpayer/China billions and billions of US dollars in the coming years. The United States should be glad that the Chinese and its deep pockets still are willing to finance the United States military adventures around the world. The Chinese still sending money to the United States as if there is no tomorrow, and the United States is getting the easy money and finding new ways of pissing it away. On the Saturday edition of the Financial Times (UK) the article said: âAbout 800 US troops and 600 US civilian contractors will be permitted on Colombia soil and will enjoy diplomatic immunity.â I guess it is official now: Colombia is under foreign military occupation, and the United States has another fiasco to support for many years to come or until China cuts the credit line of the United States. Another chapter is starting on the military adventures of the United States around the globe with the compliments of China and its deep pockets. ***** âColombia: Pact to Expand U.S. Army Presence Signedâ By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Published: October 30, 2009 In a private ceremony, the American ambassador, William Brownfield, and three Colombian ministers signed an agreement on Friday to expand Washingtonâs military presence.
