China wins. The rest of you lose.

There's a reason why these nations are keen to have closer ties with China. They've all been colonized by western countries and have seen absolutely no benefits or results during and after colonization. The west's intention is to keep to nations poor and subjugated and these nations know it. Just watch for more coups instigated by NED , "NGOs" funded by the west, and talks about China helping out......but at what cost? "But at what cost" is the go-to phrase. And talks of perpetual debt. If you want debt, go to the IMF.

It sounds an awful lot like the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere during WWII, doesn’t it? We all know how that turned out.

and you think china is going to treat them with those sweet words of "equity" and "justice"

china will steal all the fish and rubber, station its navy in the ports, compromise energy and communications, and disappear anyone who disagrees.

Give it a chance. What's the alternative

That’s already smelling now like a global grid of their planned Silk Roads. An even much bigger entanglement than one of those between the West / NATO near Russia and Russia with Kalininingrad, Cuba, Venezuela near US. They obviously want their feet get into all doors and continents.
