#1 The tweets is cut short. It appears that lithium mining and battery manufacturing scheme was an issue here?

Sounds like the plot of a bad spy movie.

#3 Everytime the Chinese/Russian/Cuban axis takes control of a country and its resources and industries, it's A Victory For the Indigenous Peoples. Every time they lose one, it's a Nefarious Western Plot To Seize Their Resources.

Well, if the world's going to be run like medieval Italian city states, shouldn't we at least play the game? It would give the CIA something to do besides agitating against Trump. They've been Not Fighting Back Against The Communists in South America for twenty years now.

Our elites can try but they have lost the knowledge of how to play and win.

Since the end of the Cold War and the death of Sam Huntington, they stopped caring for or believing in power politics. They don't believe in The Great Game, or spheres of interest, or great power competition generally. They want Kumbaya-style, fairytale unicorn outcomes: Girl Power in Afghanistan! Three Cups of Tea! EU membership for the brutal shithole that is Ukraine etc
