Say buh-bye to the Monroe Doctrine...


Argentine Foreign Affairs Secretary Rafael Bielsa confirmed this Sunday significant Chinese investments in energy, railways and infrastructure, as well as South Korean financial support, the first credit since Argentina defaulted at the end of 2001.

In an interview with a Buenos Aires radio Mr. Bielsa said that since President Kirchner’s visit last June to China with a delegation of 200 businessmen, Beijing and Buenos Aires have been working “in several bilateral agreements related to energy, railways and basic integration infrastructure”.

Yes, folks, America just doesn't have the prestige we used to have before George W. Bush.
