Condensed:

The Dollar is the current dominant world currency.

The people enforcing dominance of the dollar depend upon maintaining control of the world Oil Market.

Without Oil the dollar will not dominate.

That is fact.

Read the link.

Enforcers of Oil/Dollar/Military Dominance cannot maintain dominance much longer.

Note: Dominance is also called Hegemony. Dominance and hegemony depend upon monopoly control of a necessity.

Example: If I owned the Sun and if I had a switch to turn it on and off, then, I could monopolize a necessity. I could charge people, make them pay me, to turn the sun on. If they do not pay me, then, I turn it off.

A stale mate can occur. Who needs the Sun more; me or you?

What is very bad for the Hegemony is competition and knowledge. If another person has a switch to the sun, then, he can charge less to turn it on.

If everyone has a switch for the sun, everyone “knows” how to turn on the sun, then, no one needs to pay anyone for turning on the sun.

The above is economics 101; my version.

Read the link. I can offer anyone interested a more detailed analysis of that current viewpoint of current events – News.

There is good news mixed in with the bad - very good news.

I’m going to be lazy. Rather than assemble new words in a particular order, now, I’m going to cut and paste from here:

What is capitalism?

 
Cut and Pasted:

Discover How You Can Improve
Your Fuel Economy By
21% or More...

And Slash Your Fuel Expenses
By $500.00 - $2000.00
Per Vehicle Each Year






Unit Base Price $247.00



Above is a competing device that turns Water into Hydrogen based fuel.

I’ve been ‘Banking’ on the HHO device since it is more efficient and it is, at this time, being Dyno tested rigorously in preparation for mass production and sale. The HHO device turns Water, using a device in the car, on demand, into a NEW, International Patents Pending, form of fuel that is both Hydrogen and Oxygen. The New gas, HHO, has unique properties including higher energy content per volume than Hydrogen which explains the doubling of fuel economy over the competitions Hydrogen from water unit.

This is better than turning water into wine.

Instead of a new market that increases drunkenness (not necessarily a bad thing) the new market will decrease, not if, the new market will decrease dependence upon Oil based fuel and therefore decreases the dependence upon a State commanded by Oil Industry agents.

As to Capitalism:

This new device has far reaching and exponential consequences once it becomes available on the Market.

The HTA company is now generating its first round of financing before going public (IPO) on the Global Stock Market this summer.

One event, or many serious events, can delay the growth of this new market. This new market may not expand, exponentially, reaching critical mass (think popular market expansion like a fad or fashion like the personal computer) as it could if no Nuclear War is triggered, on purpose, someone has to order the button to be pushed, in Iran.

Another serious event includes a Stock Market Crash triggered as a result of Iran de-linking their Oil from the Dollar.

These events involve Capital and the control of Capital or Economic Power.

Another serious event involves the Power over communication which is another Capital Power.
Here:
http://www.sundayherald.com/54975




IMAGINE a world where wars are fought over the internet; where TV broadcasts and newspaper reports are designed by the military to confuse the population; and where a foreign armed power can shut down your computer, phone, radio or TV at will.





“The Times They are a Changin’” Bob Dylan.

The Old Capitalists (Read Coalition, Oil, Military, Dollar Hegemonic Banking, and Political Power Base) are not fighting against “Terror” in the Middle East, as much, as their Power is threatened by the New Capitalists (Read China, Europe, and any other non Dollar/Oil Power base).

If this new technology (Turning Water into Fuel) is not capitalized by U.S. sovereign individuals (Read “by the people”), then, there is little hope in such Market Expansion being accelerated (let alone NOT being covertly decelerated) by the Old Capitalists, if the people do not capitalize on the new technology, then, the New Capitalists may do so.

The question then becomes:

Are you a New Capitalist?

The new technology is unique. It destroys much of the structure that contributed toward capital flow from the many to the few because the new technology empowers the individual.

Rather than a structure that depends upon centrally located Energy Sources (Read Oil wells, Oil Refineries, Electric Generating Plants – Oil, Coal, Nuclear, and, yes, Governments or States) the new technology empowers the individual people producing Energy from individual, and individual owned/controlled, sources i.e. Solar Panels, Wind Generators, individual HHO or Hydrogen gas Units in individual cars, trucks, trains, and, in the near future: individual home heating (including water heating) units.

The lynch pin is communication. Without the means to communicate there can be no interaction; no trade and no rapid world changing development of new technology.

Inclusive in the sphere of communication is money, language, and Networked Global information exchange mediums (Read: cell phones, computers, Ipods, Digital Cash, etc.).

Money becomes the obvious dividing factor.

The Old Capitalists have backed themselves into a corner. Their money, the dollar, will depreciate; no ifs, ands or buts.

Their power has been invested in Military Might (Read: Military Industrial Complex).

Their power is dependent upon the dollar which is dependent upon Oil.

The battle between Old and New is focused now, at this current time in human history, on Iran. If Iran de-links their Oil from the dollar, then, the Old will crumble; it will implode.

The question is: Who will go down with the ship?

Or perhaps:

Who will the Old Regime take with them?

Worst case:

Nuclear attacks from U.S. war ships into Iran. China responds - Total Global Nuclear War.



For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it. Patrick Henry 1736-1799


Best case:

The new technology rapidly overtakes the Global Market and destroys the central Power Bases Globally. All costs of production are halved and therefore all prices are halved on a Global Scale. Sun Energy and Water Energy replace Oil Energy, overtake it, and reduce it to a State of relative insignificance rapidly. Human labor costs are reduced Globally freeing up resources on an individual basis allowing investment, individually controlled, toward individual wants and needs.

Example:
A person converts a savings account, retirement account, or other such capital storage medium into one $300.00 device that turns water into fuel. It is in place in his car next week. From that day forward that person reduces his fuel cost by half (or 21% with the Hydrogen gas unit). That person takes one unit off the shelf. The producer makes one more unit. The producer employs another worker. The producer purchases more resources to make another unit; on and on. The individual at the gas pump uses his savings to buy more groceries (beer or milk) at the convenience store. One six pack off the shelf; on an on.

That person could purchase a Stock Share with his savings. He or she could purchase a Stock Share in any of a number of new technologies that will grow rapidly because Oil Energy will be replace with Solar and Hydrogen Energy.

Think man; what is the return on investment for a savings account at 2% interest while Dollars are being printed at 6% interest (over simplification) the answer is negative 4% interest. What happens to the retirement account, in dollars, when, not if, the dollar devalues? What happens if the dollar Market crashes?
How much return on investment can be gained by purchasing Stock in an New Technology Energy Market?

Where will a person get the Energy required to heat his home, his water, cook his food, and power his vehicle, his power tools, etc. when the dollar devalues?

What if the dollar crashes?

Any person with a significant savings account can purchase one Solar panel that can power his home independently for about $1,000.00. The output on that one Solar Panel is small, good for a toaster oven, a computer, or some relatively minor power requirement. However, that one Solar Panel can reduce current costs of energy and the savings, in the pocket, can be used to purchase a second Solar panel. This is called investment. It is not savings. It will currently take 15 years of Solar panel investment, in this ‘reverse interest’ manner to become almost fully independent from centrally controlled electric energy.

Best case:
Human beings invest in New Energy Technology individually and do not wait for the “Powers that be” to kick “us” in the ass. They won’t.

If one person invests, no matter how little, then, one person will reduce his individual cost of living. If the Global population invests, no matter how little or great the individual investment is, then, the Human Race turns a corner in human history.

Somewhere between the worst case and the best case is reality. That reality will play out in the next 20 years. The current situation is somewhat critical if you invest in the time to look.

Communication helps. Free communication helps avoid Newspeak.

It was a saying of Daniel Webster that “if a thing is to be done, a wise man should be able to tell how it is to be done.” Stephen Pearl Andrews

In context:

http://praxeology.net/HJ-HG-SPA-LMD-2.htm

The demand for Bad News appears to be on the rise; appreciation for it.

The supply isn't quite sufficient; it seems.

In a sense; it is good news. Knowing is desired.

The demand for Good News is also in high demand.

A Google search can measure it:

Results 1 - 10 of about 1,740,000,000 for Good News.

That is an impressive number.

How about 'Avoiding WWIII'?

Results 1 - 10 of about 150,000 for Avoiding WWIII.

How about 'Regretting WWII'?

Results 1 - 10 of about 38,200 for Regretting WWII

Critical thinking is next:

Results 1 - 10 of about 125,000,000 for Critical Thinking.

How about "Improving the Survivability of the Human Race"?

Results 1 - 10 of about 11,900,000 for Improving the Survivability of the Human Race.

Good News wins!

A happy species may not necessarily be a durable one. I wonder why?

Oil from the beginning has been a government-business partnership, not an authentic free-market industry.

Third: We must remember that prices of all things go up because of inflation. Inflation by definition is an increase in the money supply. The money supply is controlled by the Federal Reserve Bank, and responds to the deficits Congress creates. When deficits are excessive, as they are today, the Fed creates new dollars out of thin air to buy Treasury bills and keep interest rates artificially low. But when new money is created out of nothing, the money already in circulation loses value. Once this is recognized, prices rise-- some more rapidly than others. That’s what we see today with the cost of energy.

 

If we want to do something about gas prices, we should demand and vote for greatly reduced welfare and military spending, a balanced budget, and fewer regulations that interfere with the market development of alternative fuels. We also should demand a return to a sound commodity monetary system.


 


Inflating the money supply causes higher prices.

Greater supplies of oil decrease the price of oil.

Fewer regulations that interfere with the market development of alternative fuels can increase the supply of alternate fuels.

A return to a sound commodity monetary system stabilizes prices.

Why not add things up?

Things needed:

1. Energy (Oil and alternate fuels)

2. Power (Currency)

3. Independence (Stability)

Three may not be obvious.

One and two are as plane as night and day. Without energy there can be no power. Without power the energy remains static. Sunlight is power - particle or wave - it really doesn't matter, to most, so long as the Sun continues to power the Earth.

Independence is just a little more difficult to see clearly.

What is needed is a little sunshine.

How about some more help?

http://www.lewrockwell.com/featherstone/featherstone57.html
From: Charles H. Featherstone
Ignorance combined with power, especially state power, is a problem.

That helps.

Power is not the problem. The problem is destrutive power.

Ignorance is not a problem if there is no politics, no war, no violence, no desire to exercise authority and dominion over others.

Ignorance about destructive power is not the same thing as ignorance driving destructive power.

The really confounding thing, at least for me, is that we do and believe all of these things at the same time.


Falsehood is the problem. Falsehood is destructive power. Duplicity allows a person to act without conscience. Who is to blame internally? The devil made me do it?

That is what happens when one individual is false, all alone, by himself or herself, and independently.

Add two, three, four and more false individuals together, armed with no conscience, and a whole lot of power, and whatever happens will be followed by a whole lot of finger pointing at no one. The fingers will point to a nebulous reincarnation of the devil. Osama bin Hitler State. Also known as Mr. Soviet Union. Alias Emanuel Goldstein (google Newspeak).

The power was released, and always is, at the individual level, as a direct result of an individual decision.

The problem is not independence. That is a fact. The problem is an exponential reproduction process when destructive power is added to destructive power, all powered by falsehood at the source, and, much to the human races disgrace, that union of destructive power is, and always will be, without conscience. It will not fix itself. The state is power used to destroy. Forever and always. It has no conscience.

Only individual, independent, human beings are capable of making choices. Independent conscience does exist. That is the source, at the root, of constructive human power.

Independence is not a desire or theory, rather, it is a fact. Power, the stuff that turns unusable energy into usable energy, comes from independent sources.

A moment on reproduction:

Take three different units. 

1. A human being

2. A roach

3. A Solar Panel

A human being can reproduce another human being. Two human beings can reproduce again. That is an exponential rate of reproduction.

Roaches are better at it.

Solar Panels can reproduce too.

Power can be constructive in nature. Power can be constructive in theory.

Having the power to turn theory into practical reality is a power.

An independent unit can use energy to make another unit. If that power is possible for that unit, then, one can become two, two can become four, and that power to reproduce is an exponential power; starting with one individual, independent, unit.

The power to reproduce is an exponential power.

Back to my favorite congressman:

new dollars out of thin air


An individual with a conscience will never attempt to create something out of nothing. That is not the same thing as saying an individual with a conscience will never create something out of nothing.  Regardless; it is false.

False on purpose or just plane false. Stupid, ignorant, duplicitous, irrational, clever, or whatever; it is false. Something arriving from nothing is a miracle.

New dollars out of thin air is not a miracle.

It is however a practice that must be, almost, the world's oldest profession.

But when new money is created out of nothing, the money already in circulation loses value.


That is not necessarily true. In fact; it is often false. The 'theory' does not account for the 'value' of falsehood.

Setting aside the motive behind the crime of counterfeiting the 'people’s' currency for a moment:

If "Uncle Sam" did print twice the amount of green paper notes called 100 dollar bills and then used that new money created out of nothing to finance nothing but Solar Panels to be given away to every subject currently held hostage here on this continent, then, what would happen to the value of the money currently circulating?

That one may be too complicated.

Just for kicks:



http://www.eia.doe.gov/fuelelectric.html


A guy or gal could get lost in there.

Switching gears:

I had my "planner" hat on; like playing the board game "Risk" where the player moves the pieces around in the endeavor to take over the world. A handy tool for promoting a measure of Empathy. One must put aside superfluous notions of moral concience.

Shifting back to overdrive:

"Planning" from the indivdual perspective of the average Joe citizen:

An agent of The State prints up the new directive and sends a copy to each subject in the Realm:

Note: I do not condone anything that agents of the State do: nothing beyond what I tell them to do and I have no power to tell them to do anything whatsoever thank God.

Joe gets the directive in the mail. It reads:

Hear ye Hear ye. Read the instructions and follow the law to the letter, ignornace of the law is no excuse, pay the price or pay a higher price.

A note on the higher priced something that The Sate can charge:

Not following the directive:

An order will be issued to kidnap the perpetrator. The perpetrator will then be offered two choices. Do as told or pay a higher price. That is called (a euphemism) Plea Bargaining.

The higher price:

Punishment euphemistically:

"Debt to Society" 

http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=euphemism

http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=euphemistically%20

The act or an example of substituting a mild, indirect, or vague term for one considered harsh, blunt, or offensive: “Euphemisms such as ‘slumber room’... abound in the funeral business” (Jessica Mitford).

 adv : in a euphemistic manner; "his violent death was euphemistically referred to as a passing away"



In real terms:

Fine or imprisonment.

The value of the dollar will certainly decline by a certain measure. The 'debt to society' will be a deduction in productivity in proportion to the individual 'debtor's' decrease in production and or the cost of feeding, housing, and clothing (don't forget cable T.V) that 'criminal'.

Note: Does anyone ever pay off their 'Debt to Society'?

Too much wandering all over the map:

Suppose the average Joe citizen is a compliant one, a good citizen, a believer in the rule of law, no matter how absurd it may seem at the time, and suppose that citizen is not alone. Suppose all the citizens obey the directive.

Hear ye Hear ye

Instructions:

Take this blank check and make the appropriate calls (Home Depo for example) that result in my, errr your, home producing independent electric power converted from sun light.

E.D. standards listed (Evaluation Data). Turn in E.D. docs to the appropriate authorities (a new bureaucracy reproduced, borne, from the DOE).

The gears turn and by the date demanded, subject to late penalties, Joe has no electric bill. All the other citizens of the realm have no electric bill.

Now; what happened to the value of the dollar?

Are you scratching your head?

This may help:

Forget about the 100 dollar bills. The check, printed by Uncle Sam, is a blank check, the numbers on it are written as a total of all the costs paid out by the individual who follows orders. The individual pays the costs and then Uncle Sam files the paper somewhere to record the paper trail. That is it. It is that simple.

It can get very, very complicated, of course, when one tries to imagine who actually pays the cost. The fact is however, indisputable, that: Sun light turns into usable power at every citizens individual home in the realm.

Asking a politician to answer the question as to who does pay the cost is akin to asking a elephant to mate with a donkey; the results may be entertaining to some but to this individual the child borne will be disgusting and just as productive.

Note: I do not consider Ron Paul to be a "Politician". He is, in my opinion, a "Statesman".


http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=statesman

A man who is a leader in national or international affairs. 

So what has happened to the value of the dollar?

Note: Statesmen have a mode of behavior that recognizes the fact that human beings, including the Statesman, cannot know absolutely everything i.e. The Statesman knows that he too is a Human being.

Politicians pretend otherwise.

One leads to knowledge and wisdom.

The other leads to falsehood.

One is demonstrably productive.

The other is demonically destructive.

What doesn't make sense to this individual is why the voice of equity is not heard, rather, ignored by Statesmen. Equity is on the same road with Liberty. They are both as dynamic as justice (not to be confused with punishment).

I can figure out the reasons why a politician chooses to ignore equity, rather, confuses equity with equality; on purpose (read: with willful intent to deceive).

Anyway:

What happens to the value of the dollar?

Who cares?

Those who value the dollar?

Why not appreciate the conversion of energy from a less productive form into a current productive power, appraise that, over the depreciating dollar?

Particulars:

The blank check could be an instrument that credits the individual will a reduction in tax debt. That 'plan' would allow the individual to borrow the capital, the power, required to lube the gears into motion; resulting in the independent power house project.

Why not simply stop involuntary taxing all together and simply suggest to anyone wanting power independence that the independent power house project is possible, including all the details that prove the economy of the enterprise, and leave the decision up to the individual 'deciders'?

That, of course, misses the point of why The State exists in the first place.

Stepping back:

The State, in my estimate, is a necessary evil because evil exists. Hire someone capable of meeting the demand economically. Don't hire someone to become evil.

It really isn't that complicated. Hire statesmen. Some are better than others but ultimately they can be fired. The sooner the better.

Think of The State as Despotism insurance.

Government, on the other hand, is the check on the employee. The law of the land presiding over the madness of hired violence. The owner of the store. The employer.

One might ask: I need an honest employee that can be trusted.

One might conclude: If that supply is wanting, then, my job is to make sure the employee accounts for his every move. I want proof damn it. If you do something, anything, then, leave me no doubt as to the economy of your actions.

After push came to shove, then, the employee will stand trial and I, a member of the jury, will have all the power necessary to judge the law and the punishment.

The civilized thing to do, if that is what we find to be our fortune as employers, is to fine the perpetrator limited in cost to nothing more than the criminals ability to produce more than that individuals requirement to survive individually.

What about the sociopath?

Remember: I am the stupid one. However I do not hire sociopaths to lead me toward the extinction of the human race.

Hire the worst one to watch the second worst one and let them work out the details.

Where do I get the power to do this?

I don't want it. I've managed to avoid sociopaths for 47 years. Sociopaths are not my problem. My problem is his arrogant mob who are obviously infected with a severe case of falsehood. Poor things. I have a lot of empathy for them.

I want constructive power. There is plenty of destructive power in supply.

Anyway:

The individual power house plan does not address the point as well as the individual power unit that can be installed in each individual automobile.

More stuff on the individual power house plan:

Current electricity is supplied from central locations along paths called wires. Those wires are loads. Those loads are measurable. Those loads produce nothing and cost a whole lot of power; for no gain whatsoever. The power savings of eliminating the power loss spent on the load of wires, a considerable cost, is saved with the independent power house plan.

Damn there are a few more costs to calculate:

The industry of producing Solar Panels creates many more jobs.

Solar panels are getting more and more efficient; power output exceeds power input already and that ratio or rate of return on investment, per individual unit, is increasing.

Pay x and get x + y. It is a matter of time. 30 years time currently per unit. A power house Solar panel array pays for itself in 15 years now.  That leaves 15 years worth of new costless power. That scenario can be set into motion with a minimal capital investment, in dollars, at the current rate, of approximately 1000 units. I say approximately because time has elapsed since my last calculation and therefore the depreciating dollar hampers, costs more, whenever anyone endeavors to calculate any economic calculation accurately.


Third: We must remember that prices of all things go up because of inflation. Inflation by definition is an increase in the money supply. The money supply is controlled by the Federal Reserve Bank, and responds to the deficits Congress creates. When deficits are excessive, as they are today, the Fed creates new dollars out of thin air to buy Treasury bills and keep interest rates artificially low. But when new money is created out of nothing, the money already in circulation loses value. Once this is recognized, prices rise-- some more rapidly than others. That’s what we see today with the cost of energy.

Exploding deficits, due to runaway entitlement spending and the cost of dangerous militarism, create pressure for the Fed to inflate the money supply. This contributes greatly to the higher prices we all claim to oppose.

If we want to do something about gas prices, we should demand and vote for greatly reduced welfare and military spending, a balanced budget, and fewer regulations that interfere with the market development of alternative fuels. We also should demand a return to a sound commodity monetary system.

All subsidies and special benefits to energy companies should be ended. And in the meantime let’s eliminate federal gas taxes at the pump.




A standard, unchanging, measure of value will lower the cost of conducting commerce. Commodity money is valuable because it standardized the measure of value.

A better commodity, utilized, to standardize the measure of value will be the most stable commodity. That is why gold works well as a standard measure of value.

Gold is also a good commodity, utilized, to store value for the same reason; it is a stable commodity that does not fluctuate as much as less stable commodities.

The State has no business, as my employee, to enforce anything including what I choose to utilize as a standard measure of value, a store of value, or a currency.

That is called fascism. Nazi's were fascists who were particularly prejudiced against Jews. Who now has a particularly destructive prejudice toward Muslims?

My employee will not express their prejudice against any individual based upon anything other than an individuals propensity to express prejudice and when that business is done the 'winner' will go to trial and answer for their honest expressions if there is any doubt whatsoever as to the propriety of their expressions. If they refuse to go to trial, then, they have quit the job. No need to expend the cost of firing them and the new hire has a new job i.e. prepare to guard against that individual’s expressions of prejudice.

On to the automobile 'plan'.

All subsidies and special benefits to energy companies should be ended.

If the individual employees remain infected with their unshakable belief in falsehood and if the employers are similarly infected, as a whole, then the savings in costs realized as a result of ending all subsidies and special benefits to individual energy companies will not be returned to the individuals who produced those subsides and special benefits. That is a real shame.

Life is not a bowl of cherries.

Suppose then that a miracle does happen and the individual employees are somewhat less infected with their unshakable desire to express prejudice and those subsides and special benefits are given back to the people in the form of a blank check to be filled out and turned back in upon the successful installation of a new HHO gas, on demand, fuel production unit in each of the people's automobiles in the realm.

Don't even complain about how little the existing subsidies and special benefits actually are compare to the cost of installing a new HHO gas unit in each car now traveling the highways in the United States.

Don’t' go there please.

I'm trying to point something out.

OK, I give, put only as many units that can be afforded based upon the total savings accured by ending all existing subsidies and special benefits to individual energy companies.

The growth from that point will be exponential despite the lower initial investment.

And too:

I'm not so confident that the total savings realized by ending all existing subsidies and special benefits to individual energy companies would be less than the cost of installing a new HHO gas producing unit, on demand, in each car currently driving on the highways in the realm.

Time to put my average Joe hat back on:

I receive the order, from the false state, my errant employees, that demands the installation of a new fuel producing unit in my car. My neighbor doesn’t receive the order. We can't agree upon which of us is less taxed by the new situation.

That changes.

I reduce my costs at the gas station by half each time I fill up.

My neighbor is invited to a party of mine later on; as time goes by.

The matter is decided. He was taxed more than I. I'm not such a bad guy so I say "Hey dude" I can loan you my savings on fuel for awhile and if you want, then, you can get a new unit too. Just pay me back once the money starts rolling in.

What has happened to the value of the dollar?

Avoiding War With Iran

I'm busy reading the above and so the reader will have to do the same rather than depend upon my ability to cut and paste the important highlights.

Meanwhile here is an infomercial or two just in case the reader gets bogged down with Ron Paul.

President Nixon and his top foreign policy advisor Dr. Henry Kissinger were determined to establish diplomatic links with Beijing and ensured that their project would succeed by conducting preliminary secret negotiations with the Chinese. One could compare their policy to a powerful bulldozer running over all the obstacles as it pressed ahead towards the final destination.

President Bush and Ms Rice, on the other hand, resemble the exhausted and disoriented drivers of a broken-down vehicle who cannot operate the GPS in the car and who are not even sure what address they should be looking for. But driving around town for hours and hours they are relieved to discover a gas station where they hope to make a phone call and perhaps purchase a map. And who knows? They might even end up being on time for their job interview.

 

Art maintains the moral conscience of mankind and keeps us happy.

But I'm not sure that that is going to work out. So if I had to make a bet, I would put my money on the military-collision scenario taking place sometime after the Congressional elections and before Mr. Bush leaves office.
And then reality sets in?

Corporate war machine gathers speed

By Ismael Hossein-zadeh


There is strong evidence that as the Bush administration is mulling over plans to bomb Iran, the simmering conflict between high-ranking military professionals and militaristic civilian leaders is bursting into the open.

Beijing has a Geopolitics, Too

Although Washington seems mostly unaware of the dynamic — continuing to talk quaintly about “keeping the Chinese on board” for various U.S. projects to squeeze U.S. enemies as if China were still a provincial power whose only foreign policy concern was Taiwan — China’s geopolitics represents the fruition of the French foreign policy dream of a new “multipolarity” in the global system to contain and counter the influence of the U.S. “hyperpower.” The old assumption that China prioritizes its economic relationship with the U.S. remains true, but there are other priorities now, as well, ranging from competition for resources (particularly energy) to altering the geopolitical landscape away from the domination of international affairs by Washington and its often coercive policies.

Delusional dreams of conquest have addled The Decider’s decision making. Reality is falling dreadfully short of his fantasies.

Is that what happened or is this just a clever way of shifting the blame from the real perpetrators of the bloodshed to the victims of Washington’s dirty war?

In a new jointly written Weekly Standard article, Fred Kagan, the AEI think tank military genius behind President Bush's "surge" strategy, and Bill Kristol, one of the Chief Propagandists behind this war from the start, condemn Democrats for daring to question the military judgment of Gen. Petraeus, who agrees with Kagan and Kristol that more troops are needed:
 

The reason our foreign policy has been so incoherent, amoral and bloodthirsty is because the people behind it are. And until Democrats and other opponents of this extremist group commit themselves to stopping them and figuring out how to do that (and so far, at least, they've done neither), nothing will deter them in their insane militarism.

Strategic Errors of Monumental Proportions
 
By Lt. General WILLIAM E. ODOM (US Army Ret.)
 
Text of testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee,18 January 2007

 

I discovered that the regimes that received the least US direct fiscal support had the most success against the insurgents. Providing funding and forces to give an embattled regime more "time" to gain adequate strength is like asking a drunk to drink more whiskey in order to sober up.

If it wasn’t about the oil in 2003, it most certainly is now.
 

 That something might mean for a more stable oil supply than competitive countries, or a return to the US dollar as the only currency for energy trading.  

The men who ratified the Constitution invoked words about “democracy,” while making sure that Black people, Native Americans, women and white males without property, were not represented at their Constitutional Convention. Patrick Henry and other “patriots” successfully argued for passage of the Bill of Rights, in order to make sure the federal government could not free their slaves under any circumstances, such as it did with some of the Black men who fought in the Revolutionary War.

Hmmmm....this sounds familiar

That's why the money supply has nearly tripled just since 1990.

 

When does the rate of increase become hyperinflation?
