haven't read it.... but it is a recipe for another world war ... :evil:

If you have time to waste, I recommend you to read the article :mrgreen:
It talks about the inevitable confrontation between the sea power (USA) and the land power (Russian-Chinese alliance) or the World-Island (Anglo-Saxon countries) versus the Heartland (Eurasia).

Pentagon Concludes America Not Safe Unless It Conquers The World

Spoiler: show
'Interesting' part:

This report tells us that war with Russia is our future unless Russia agrees to become a vassal state like every country in Europe, and Canada, Australia, Ukraine, and Japan. Otherwise, the neoconservatives have decided that it is impossible for Americans to tolerate living with a country that makes decisions independently of Washington. If America cannot be The Uni-Power dictating to the world, better that we are all dead.

It is very complementary to the article I posted indeed.

Yes, there are several fashion shows across the country even if fashion is not my cup of tea.

Not sure how much Russia and China are allies. From my experience studying there, the Chinese are almost as distrustful of the Russians as they are of the US! At least they know who is buying all their stuff ;)

It's true that Russians and Chinese never really trusted each others historically even when they were both communists, but things have changed dramatically in the past 10 years. You should inform yourself more about this subject, as the world is changing very quickly :wink:

I think the Arab world has so much sh!t going on that the people barely care anymore about external politics. But you can say that the "big" governments are pro-US to some extent, yes.

Arabs are divided and prey to intestine wars, they have neither the means nor the balls to get emancipated from the US tutelage for now.

You are probably right, of course ;) I've allowed myself to be drawn into media coverage of Greece, IS, and Ukraine. While interesting, it doesn't really concern me if Greece collapses or Ukraine is swallowed by Russia. China is just interesting though. I don't know if they can rise to become a superpower. They are making great advances but they've relied a lot on stealing tech. They face problems with minorities, they have environmental concerns, and the population could be a problem if they get wealthier and make political demands. Normally Chinese don't concern themselves too much with politics, but Taiwanese in the ROC protested even when everything was going well for them under Chiang Kai-shek because they felt entitled to political demands. Possibly this will only be limited to Hong Kong due to British influence.

Chinese leadership in the Central Committee has the freedom to make long-term strategy, something a US politician is incapable of (which is why the US will never conquer the world :lol: ).

Also, I have things in my life that precluded studying world events, mostly my job and the tennis major opens :lol:
