Russian Bases in Cuba and Venezuela? A Chinese Space Station in Argentina? (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 01/14/22 7:01 am)

As a follow-up to my post of 13 January, where I mentioned that so far the NATO-Russia conflict has been limited to barking, in recent days it seems that Russia is not only barking but also badly snarling.

Just now news has arrived that the leader of the Russian delegation to the last meeting, Sergei Ryabkov, has said that he cannot confirm or deny that Russia may install its military structures both in Cuba and Venezuela following the intransigence of NATO.

Of course, from a neutral point of view, Russian troops with missiles in Cuba and Venezuela would be the equivalent of NATO troops in Ukraine.  In the fall of 1962 I was sailing between Venezuela and Delaware City.  Our route took us close to Cuba, and I remember very well the warlike atmosphere in these waters due to the Soviet Army installation on the island. Such an atmosphere was very good for me, as some crewmembers including the chief mate were scared and debarked.  As a result I got my promotion from second mate to chief mate.

At that time the two wise leaders of the US and USSR took a step back and reached peace, but I seriously doubt that the present leaders can control the evolving geopolitical situation.

About the crumbling of the Monroe Doctrine, China has installed in Argentina's Neuquen province a space center run by Chinese military personnel (very suspicious). Such a center may be used to sabotage the US satellites. The possible secret accords have, of course, not been published but officially the center is for peaceful use (only fools believe that military personnel are acting only in civilian operations). Two other stations may be in development, one at Río Gallegos and the other at Ushuaia.  Their positions are extremely strategically important.

JE comments:  The Chinese "radio" (space) station has been operational for three years, and it looks ominous.  I'd like to know more.  Does anyone know what kind of perks the Fernández-Fernández government received from China in exchange?
