    I was wondering when Vietnam would come up for offshore MRO facilities. Bingo it has.

    Yeah, when President Trump went to meet Chairman Kim in Vietnam, it was to make a $100 billion dollar Boeing jet deal with Vietnam along with a sanctioned MRO biz although that part wasn't mentioned, remember, Vietnam and China has been buckin heads big time for the last couple years. Kind of a power play on Trump's part, don't ya think? He has knowledge behind the scenes that we don't have just yet. ;)

    The knowledge is there, if one goes beyond the American media. What was TPP? It was Obama's legal way to sell weapons to Vietnam. The TPP Agreement was never meant to be ratified. Clinton herself admitted as much. Why is it important? Giving defense strength to Vietnam, Philipines, and the other South China Seas claimants keeps China at bay. Consider the impact if China choked off the 40% of global maritime shipping that runs through that area (Singapore to Hong Kong)? The US Navy regularly conducts 'freedom of navigation' cruises through the area. And... there are some oil reserves in the area....

    But back to MRO's... The route between Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and Hanoi is the 6th busiest route in the world. Vietnam has had a 7% annual rise in GDP for about a decade with no end in sight. The aviation sector has exploded. The FAA does not have oversight of foreign MRO's but EASA does, and Vietnam Airline's MRO gained EASA approval last year for EU registered aircraft. However, Vietnam Airlines is near capacity with their own aircraft. They don't have manpower to take in foreign aircraft outside the unscheduled maintenance of scheduled operators. With Vietnam's granting of Class 1 landing rights (possibly tied to the huge aircraft orders, possibly.....), Vietnam Airlines and 2 other operators will add long-range aircraft further straining MRO resources. That's where this deal with ST comes in. The added capacity will be for Vietnamese operators. US operators will still go to Honduras for heavy maintenance.

    .....still no over site in Honduras, but no worries the maintenance will be good. Yes no government over site. Good cheap labor that the bean counters like. Freight dogs will only lose the crew and a bunch of boxes so nobody really cares!

    Besides, most of the Hondurans were given $1,000 debit cards by George Soreholes(and the rest of the Central American countries) to get them through Mexico to the US.

    Where ya think all their I-pads and cell phones that all the poor 'migrants' have came from too? It's part of HIS effort to thwart US immigration laws and infiltrate the US with illegal aliens. He's the one who's hired all the slimy left leaning immigration lawyers waiting for migrants to come over and exploit. He's also the one responsible for the radio ads down there telling these people "Go to the US, they're letting everybody in!. No joke. Less than a year ago he gave $18 billion of his $25 billion fortune to a supposed untouchable entity to carry on his efforts should anything happen to him or if he were to be arrested and all his assets were seized. He sees the writing on the wall.

    The trust is for his son. His son is like-minded. That's the bad news.

    He's been quoted as saying "The last obstacle to the NWO is the USA",

    That's just the tip of the iceberg. The great awakening has started.

    I'm not sure that GTMO is appropriate. GTMO's prison section is designed to keep prisoners alive.
