Wroclaw /Poland 6/13/2022
Today I will present you the current geopolitical situation in the world. We compare five countries that maintain military bases outside their own territory.
Djibouti, a country in East Africa, lies on the Gulf of Aden in a strait through which all ships entering the Suez Canal from the Indian Ocean pass. This strategic position has resulted in many countries including Japan, Spain, Italy, the US, China and France having military bases there. After a 2020 “accident” in the Suez Canal area, when a ship “accidentally” turned around and blocked the canal for weeks, China accelerated construction of an aircraft carrier port.
The situation described is dynamic. According to recent reports, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has approved the deployment of Russian troops (including military ships and aircraft) from the second half of 2022. The reaction of the USA to the stationing of Russian missiles in Central America will be interesting.
