Ron Paul’s Liberty Report:

President Obama’s visit to Vietnam was more about bringing this former adversary into the US sphere of influence against China than about truly developing further mutually-beneficial trade and other relations.

One thought on “Obama in Vietnam: Diplomacy Or Deep State Duplicity?”
