I spend a great deal of time on the RNL trying to show people how seemingly unrelated stories are not connected. If I have managed to do any good in all my time here, then I shouldn’t need to connect the dots for you on these two stories:
An Argentine naval ship has been seized in Ghana at the request of investors who lost out when Argentina defaulted on its loans in 2001.
China is angling to take over a U.S. airbase in the Azores.
Now, would anyone like to talk about how China might be thinking we could pay off all that money we owe them?
