HWW: Landing Strip 2040

Don't laugh. Denial of Indian Antarctic access might make this ideal. Think of it as a ChiComm Malta.

"Nevertheless, Madagascar's government is keen to strengthen its ties with China. Military coups in 2002 and 2009 lead to a suspension of direct assistance from the United States and the European Union. China was only too happy to fill the void and, in the years that followed, swiftly became the administration's new economic and political ally, increasing investment and boosting orders for Madagascan products."

Now that is encouragement not chastisement. What is the EUSSR desired outcome here?

" There are soul-humbling mountains, poverty-stricken yet cheerful Madagascans, lemurs and many mainland Chinese. In fact, there are more residents from the mainland than there are lemurs. The island is home to more than 70,000 Chinese, double the figure less than a decade ago."

It would be typical of the average western analyst not to get their heads round the prospect of a global dead zone where nothing western is experienced other than debt servicing at a distance.
