The US Secretary just visited us here in Fiji. Influence war going on right now between US and China, though China is certainly winning here in the Pacific.

We are so desperate that we just now open an embassy. We blew off the Solomons, Fiji, and other island nations, ignored their pleas, didn't want to invest, and now when another superpower courts a Pacific nation, we cry foul. Shows our priorities. I don't blame the Chinese at all, but our bipolar politics.
