The World Smells U.S. Weakness. Dismantling Begins!
In the nine years that have passed since the millennium, the 'beloved' Bush administration and, of course, 9/11, ... the U.S. has been bled to near oblivion by two simultaneous, expensively protracted, and wickedly contentious wars inside Afghanistan and Iraq.
The U.S. has lost its stature in the world thanks to 'Gitmo', the very viable perception of double-standards, torture, secret CIA renditions, and the soothing rejection of global-warming hysteria that was the Kyoto protocol.
The spike in oil - be it artificially inspired, based on political uncertainty, or merely inspired by the U.S.'s enemies - Iran, Russia, and Venezuela - started a run on commodity prices that precluded an even worse economic crisis - that of the financial unwinding of Wall Street, Main Street and every leafy and over-mortgaged corner of American suburbia!
With a newly elected President Obama who has, it seems, declared yet another war front - on the very capitalist foundations of America - Greed, Credit and Consumerism - the sunset on Global Americanism has arrived and it's bloody ugly to be sure.
And what of the evidence of our demise?
Russia's dark prince - Vlad Putin - suggests the rise of a global currency - a reserve currency to replace the almighty U.S. Dollar!
The meeting of the G20 - the top economies of the world - on April 2nd will inspire an avalanche of globalism at the expense of Obama's America.
At the very moment the potentially insolvent U.S. economy slashes and burns military expenditure ... the Petro-Dollar rich and despicably horrible Russians are throwing insane amounts of money at rearmament in proportions unseen since the pre-Glasnosted Soviet Evil Empire.
China? Our potent new slave masters! Our bankers; our fiscal conscience; the manufacturing base and holders of our proverbial wallets for oh ... the next thousand years - will soon be deciding how we spend our money!
Our very budgets will soon be decided by Beijing. Our taxation policies, our spending habits, our savings plans and bigger-Government coddling shall be managed and dictated by an evil Communist Cabal motherbase.
We are to be consumer slaves - bred as wage drones to consume and support an expansive Chinese industrial empire. We've already received the first round of 'tsssk tsssks' from Chinese President Hu! Their massive Treasury Bond holdings need to be protected from the high taxing economic crucification of Obama Socialism. All Hail Chinese Economics - coming soon to a Central Bank near you!
Our moronic and yet ridiculously scheming Venezuelan irritant - el Presidente Hugo Chavez - is the sand paper wrapped around the privates of Obama's foreign policy initiatives. Chavez consumes attention and distracts U.S. attentions from Iran, Russia and China. Chavez and his Cuban flunkies offer strategically-pricky airfields to Russian long-range tactical Russian bombers in yet another way to kick President Obama in the nuts.
Chavez is going to be very naughty indeed in April as Latin American leaders meet with President Obama - and why not!? He is hardly scared of the fur-shaven Lion that used to be American power!
The U.S. is on its knees in a potentially unending economic quagmire. It continues on the path of political naval gazing, of partisan bickering and introspective self-destruction and is bizarrely drunk on the Keynesian economics of spending insanity ... using buckets of credit it can no longer afford. Obama's America cannot afford Obama's fiscal policies neither economically nor from a perspective of once-cherished national security! Something now seemingly ignored!?
Bottom line: the 20th century closed and was labeled (much to the annoyance of the French) as the American Century. Thus far ... the 21st century has seen the rapid plunge in fortunes of the U.S. in every way. The rapid demise of THE stalwart of global power. The U.S. proudly presented to the world the qualities of economic strength, military reach and social stability cuddled gently with a proud arrogance of self-righteousness. All that has gone!
Here comes the Dark Ages Version 2.0! We're screwed!
