Dominican Republic Could Recognize China in Exchange for Nuclear Weapons

Although this year's hurricane season has leveled the small island of Dominica while also dealing a near deathblow to other members of Caricom -- the supranational entity spreading its tentacles across the Caribbean at a speed that makes the European Union look like a Crimean cart horse -- the threat of a war breaking out just south of Florida has never been higher. 

While American diplomats are evacuated from Cuba with mysterious injuries caused by unknown acoustic weapons, some governments are expanding their development of psychotronic weapons, leading to a veritable arms race in the Caribbean. 

The Dominican Republic, currently the main economic powerhouse in the Caribbean and the last major nation to recognize Taiwan to the detriment of China, has in the past been accused of stockpiling biological agents, with members of far right parties often demanding that President Danilo Medina withdraw from nuclear non-proliferation treaties and give the nation the means to guarantee that it is never again invaded by another foreign power. 

To that end, reports in the Dominican media suggest that the country's main ambassador, Miguel Vargas Maldonado, is reaching out to Beijing, with his silence in Taiwan's support recently stinging at the United Nations.

Sources allege that Taiwan is closely monitoring the situation, seeing no possibility in the near future that it will be abandoned by the Dominican Republic due to the unfathomably extreme request President Medina has made in regards to being provided nuclear weapons by Beijing. 

Although Taiwan can rest safe in knowing that it is still recognized by at least one major country, it may not be long before Beijing decides that a few nukes are worth dealing a psychological death blow in the international arena to its renegade province.
