    I thought the same thing when I first saw the article. China is investing in Haiti, and I agree that Taiwan wants to be sure they don't wander over the border.........

    Countries do this all the time for each other - to further good relations between allies. I don't see the big deal. Not like they went begging for it.

    That would be a piece of cake for China. Just offering a bit more, over of under the Well-known table.

    To Taiwan?


    I have no earthly idea. But my point is that countries do this - all the time.

    I do know they jumped in big time and helped Haiti after the earthquake. A lot of Dom trucks with supplies were on the road very quickly.

    I take it that throughout the course of history, your native land (whichever it may be) has never received anything from a foreign government? Ever? Why is it that when the Dominican government follows the same procedures as most governments in the world they are expected to be shamed for it. Terms such as pendejos and humiliating? This is very sad commentary indeed.

    China is the new conquistador, but maybe in a smarter way than some eurpean countries did. But that's what happens. Most people in these countries are way too relaxed.
