China Will ‘Increasingly Project’ Military Power in Latin America

In response to our latest Dispatch, Breitbart columnist Edwin Mora discusses China’s increasing role in Latin America. The article echoes the report and notes the increasing security concern that Bejing’s actions in the region pose.

This security concern is also noted by the U.S. military who have said, “The larger strategic challenge posed by China in this region is not yet a military one. It is an economic one, and a new approach may be required to compete effectively against China’s coordinated efforts in the Americas. Some of the most critical elements needed in this effort are not ones that [SOUTHCOM] can bring to bear.”
