Looking at the below simplified depiction of the One Belt One Road Initiative, I have to ask myself:
1. Has Australia lost its mind and given up on being a force for peace and prosperity in the South Pacific and southern Asia toward India, Iran, and East Africa?
2. Has Brazil not realized that it could become the colossus of South America and also the bridge to West Africa?
3. Is the USA going to continue to abuse or ignore South America at the same time that it neglects the undeveloped Canadian frontier and the Arctic?
I have the impression Russia is planning to own the Arctic and may perhaps be making peace with China in terms of developing the vast Russian eastern lands. Net net: USA does not have a serious grand strategy for anything.
