China’s Pretty Media Show in Djibouti

China is joining the US, France, and Japan (?) in establishing a military base in the tiny African nation of Djibouti. Unlike the other three countries, who have mostly kept their bases under the radar media-wise, China is going all out to try and make this seem like benevolent expansion, not like China is starting to flex its overseas military muscles. Will the media show fool anyone?
