    With "allies" like America, who needs enemies. France got cucked hard by their American "partners". This isn't the first time America bent France over a desk for a good raping. Look up the American theft of France's Alstom. Such humiliation.

    The US bought out a planeload of Chinese-made face masks right on the tarmac just as the haul of the much needed protective gear was about to set off for France, the head of a French region told RT.
    Facing shortages of protective equipment amid the coronavirus outbreak, France has turned to China to procure the much-needed face masks.

    After French legislature adopted a law on the emergent medical situation, local authorities were able to place an order on the equipment in China, paying for it upfront. All in all, his and other regions ordered some 60 million masks, the head of the south-eastern Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region Renaud Muselier told RT France on Wednesday.

    “The masks have been already produced and are currently in China. There are troubles with their delivery, though,” Muselier said, adding that the haul was set to arrive in France on Thursday evening.

    The country, however, ran into unexpected logistics troubles and not-that-friendly competition from the US, Muselier revealed.

    Today in the morning in China, the Americans bought out the French order for cash right on the tarmac. The France-bound plane departed to the US afterwards.

    The local authorities will now have to stick to major logistics companies, Muselier said, to ensure that the haul is not outbid or bought out in the loading area again. He added that the delivery is now expected later this week.

    The Americans are trying to procure any masks already available, disrupting deliveries to other nations, another report by French daily Liberation indicated.

    “They pay double and cash, even before seeing the goods,” an anonymous source told the newspaper.

    The US is by far the worst pandemic-affected country in the world as its coronavirus tally is rapidly approaching the 200,000 mark and its death toll surpasses 4,100. France is badly hit by the outbreak as well, with over 50,000 cases registered and some 4,000 dead.

    In America money talks and bull shit walks. If I was the Chinese and American's came out with more cash, it's within one's write to back out and pursue another deal, and not just that isn't France a NATO Western Ally? So this is not a Chinese issue.

    Ofcourse it's a Chinese issue....that stuff was already bought and paid for ...how can they sell it to someone else? The Americans could have just placed the order and the greedy Chinese, receiving more money, stole French merchandise already paid for.

    The French have a history of doing this sort of stuff with other countries in the past (Middle East, Africa & Co.) so I guess it's time to taste their own medicine.

    Yup, that's a big one right their. As I said its a taste of their own medicine they getting.

    France never gave exocet codes to Britain it's just a myth although France briefed the UK about the missile.

    On topic,this is only China's fault here. Selling a French bound plane for thrice the amount paid by the French. That is greed and nothing else.

    That's why Europe should be fully independent on the manufacturing of medical equipments and rely on no one else. France is ramping up its production of masks and hopefully should reach total independence in the coming months...

    Louis Vuitton should make face masks a fashion accessory and sell it to Chinese royalty.
    France can make many billions off Chinese princelings..
