My first piece of current news has to do with a Chinese miItary base located in Djibouti. The USA is very weary if this. The two competitive country's have no natural border to seperate them. The USA was shocked to learn though that Djibouti gave China a 10 year lease for the military base. The USA will peep in on the situation quite a bit. It feels as if the tensions are rising.
