China parades its own coalition of the willing
Analysis of China’s 70th anniversary military parade largely overlooked the participation and significance of foreign troop contingents.
Mexico, in a clear message to the US, likewise sent its troops to Beijing.
Is Mexico trying to say up yours, uncle Sam? :P
