Durden: la prima base militare cinese in Africa sorgera' a Gibuti


.. e i cinesi si stanno comprando la loro prima base navale militare in Africa, a Gibuti
(...) As we outlined back in May, China is negotiating a military base in the strategic port of Djibouti. 
Why Djibouti? So China can have a bird's eye view of everything that happens at the Bab el-Mandeb Strait: one of the top 5 oil choke points in the world (from the EIA):"An estimated 3.8 million bbl/d of crude oil and refined petroleum products flowed through this waterway in 2013 toward Europe, the United States, and Asia, an increase from 2.9 million bbl/d in 2009. 
Oil shipped through the strait decreased by almost one-third in 2009 because of the global economic downturn and the decline in northbound oil shipments to Europe. 
Northbound oil shipments increased through Bab el-Mandeb Strait in 2013, and more than half of the traffic, about 2.1 million bbl/d, moved northbound to the Suez Canal and SUMED Pipeline." (...) 

No, no ... il fatto che sia su una rotta fondamentale del petrolio - risorsa chiave della nostra civilizzazione cosi' come la conosciamo - e' puramente casuale
