Partnership in Blue Pacific

Very interesting.   This is within Australia’s “sphere of influence”  and is just an extension of imperialism and countering China.

“Partnership in Blue Pacific” to Turn Pacific Islands into Anti-China War Zone (39 min)

The US has announced yet another anti-China alliance. This one is called, “Partners in Blue Pacific,” and either includes or soon will include both the UK and France as well as Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. This is about countering China - but if China is attempting to trade, develop, and raise the entire region with its own rise upon the global stage - it means the US and its allies are attempting to counter development and progress for these Pacific island nations. Many of these nations are approaching China in the first place specifically because of the impoverished, destabilized state they’ve been left in by the US and its allies.
