Oh, no! The wicked old Chinese and their “debt traps!” The hatreds of the rulers and their controlled media pets are as transparent as ever.
ROADS to nowhere, abandoned railways and half-built bridges – China has been accused of using “debt trap” projects to ensnare poorer countries and expand its power worldwide.
The Communist Party’s creeping influence and international ambitions are being seen through its Belt and Road Initiative – which sees nations in Asia and Africa wooed by Beijing’s ambitious promises.
For a thought experiment, just replace Asian, African, and developing nations with “the US and the West” and replace “China” with “Promethean$.” Roads and bridges to nowhere become college degrees, mortgages, and government-corporate fiat-debt spending to nowhere. The difference is that China is trying to expand an economic empire whereas “our friends” are trying to destroy civilization.
