    Bolivia is a good exploitation-victim for China... considering the population is the most dogmatic on the continent, fearful of it's neighbours (whatever the reason might be... historic, inferiority complex, etc...)

    It certainly feels the right time for the Bolivian navy to come to the aid of little old China ;-)

    Bolivia's main exports of tin, gold, jewelry, wood, soya, oil & gas - traded mostly to adjacent countries and the US - look like being the quid pro quo.
    Arms - IN; exports that would otherwise go to the US - OUT.

    Arm the continent, country by country; and at the same time destabilise and participate in the reduction of the remaining US continental influence.
    China is pushing at an open door.

    Doormen, bouncers, gate-keepers, locks & bolts - I hope they know what they are doing.
    I saw the film Enemy at the Gate, and well over a million died trying to keep that particular door closed. How much worse if you hold the door wide open?

    Arms industries need to keep countries at each other's throats:
    attrition - re-armament - attrition - re-armanent -

    and South America really does not need this deal.
