The Chinese Leader is in town and it seems that he has a great interest in talking (and taking) american business. CNN's Lou Dobbs Launches a
scathing attack on US Administration, an attack that is prominently present on the CNN News Website...
But the Red Storm cannot be blamed for its continued manipulation of its currency, for its record $202 billion trade surplus with the United States
or for buying up American businesses and hard assets around the globe while restricting access to its market and economy.
The fault lies entirely with the U.S. government, our lack of strategy and our failed policies. This administration and U.S. multinational
corporations have lost sight of the national interest. This administration and the Republican-led Congress have permitted the dismantling of
America's manufacturing base and created a dependency on China for our clothing, computers, consumer electronics and a host of other products that is
greater than our dependency on foreign oil.
Make no mistake: Our leaders are the fools, and China's leaders are not to be blamed for taking advantage of this administration's commitment to
faith-based economic theories and so-called free trade that permits the Chinese access to the world's richest consumer market while China denies our
businesses access to its emerging market.

This morning I looked to CNN as I always do, and to my suprise I found an article that not only ridiculed the United States government, but even went
as far as lableing them "fools". This to me signals a distinct shift in media opinion, a shift that I feel is forced by the overwhelming resentment
and disillusionment of the general US public at the policy of the current administration.
I titled this article "The Wolves Gather" as I feel that the US Administration has over extended it's self out of pure arrogance and greed. I think
the other powers are starting to stare at the pie with hungry eyes. How long till they come to feed?
