How did democrats get Italy to lock down the their whole country?..or are they in on your democrat hoax too?
Simple... the Chinese have released the Wuhan Wonder and had their legs blown off... they have lost Billions in business across the Planet.
Italy is part of their Silk Road effort in which they have invested 3 Billion dollars in Italian infrastructure. Now if a bunch of Italians get sick, the first thing they are going to do is tear up all those lovely contracts. Next the Italian people will turn against the Italian politicians who were involved with this project.
So basically Italy was shut down to protect the power of elite Italian Politicians as well as 3 billion dollars of Chinese investment.
Also, if you have been to Italy the last 4 years,,, you would have seen thousands of Chinese tourists... they are everywhere... only makes sense to kick them out before radical Italians start killing them off...Gain power....
...and Nationalize all that lovely infrastructure....
from a BBC Report -----------------------
Italy has become the first developed economy to sign up to China's global investment programme which has raised concerns among Italy's Western allies.
A total of 29 deals amounting to 2.5bn ($2.8bn) were signed during Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to Rome.
The project is seen as a new Silk Road which, just like the ancient trade route, aims to link China to Europe.
Italy's European Union allies and the United States have expressed concern at China's growing influence.
What is the Chinese project about?
The new Silk Road has another name - the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) - and it involves a wave of Chinese funding for major infrastructure projects around the world, in a bid to speed Chinese goods to markets further afield. Critics see it as also representing a bold bid for geo-political and strategic influence.
