    Enough is enough already...for $#@!'s sake.

    Let the heathen Chinee pick up the white man's burden for the next hundred years on that god forsaken continent and go bankrupt and weak with self loathing.
    Ironically, you just said why we're not going to be pulling troops out of Africa as our government is in a "diplomatic war" with China over those lush lands of cheap labor on the Dark Continent. A war which, I might add, China is winning handedly. Regardless of some people swearing China is mere months from complete collapse their middle class has grown by leaps and bounds, so their looking to outsource their manufacturing market to a place where that pesky thing isn't to be found...hence, Africa. The US, despite what some would say about to experience this magical resurgence of manufacturing, is working hard to claim the same thing so they can keep cost effective goods available for Americans who are check to check.

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper called the decision "unfortunate" as Washington and its allies press China to abide by "international rules" in Asia. [L4N2AB0ZL]
    The U.S. embassy in Manila called it "a serious step with significant implications." Duterte's decision, sparked by the revocation of a U.S. visa held by a former police chief who led Duterte's bloody war on drugs, takes legal effect in 180 days and U.S. officials have expressed hope it can be reversed or delayed.
    "I don't really mind if they would like to do that, it will save a lot of money," Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about Duterte's move and whether anything could be done to get him to reconsider. "My views are different from others," he added.
    Trump has frequently expressed a desire to bring U.S. military forces home from decades-long deployments abroad and has strong-armed some allies into paying more for the right to U.S. defense.
    Trump said the United States had helped the Philippines defeat Islamic State militants. He said he had "a very good" relationship with Duterte and added: "we'll see what happens."

    China is the world's biggest bubble, it was already doomed and the virus is hastening its collapse.

    You forgot the other part of that equation......

    China AND the US are both in the world's biggest bubbles.

    That is exactly why Africa and it's cheap labor is such a hotbed of political/diplomatic judo between the two as cheap goods tend to help ailing economies. More so economies who are one debt issuance denial away from major upheaval.
