Listened to the first 3 and half min, already I have something to add before finishing the video. This is worth listening to fromt he beginning, not just half way through, because the highways are mentioned.
I can vouch for that info, the toll booths are being OUTSOURCED. A Grey- Hound driver I spoke with while rideing back home mentioned, how they (the foreign toll admins) are paying the toll employees less, and chargeing more to pass though.
Ok, got to finish this, already hooked.
As the Pentagon tries to prepare the U.S. military for the future, military planners are looking to China as the next potential large-scale threat to the United States. The Defense Department’s most recent assessment of China’s power raises concerns about China’s military modernization and contends Beijing could one day try to dominate Asia or challenge U.S. hegemony. But some experts say China, while clearly spending large sums on defense, does not intend to challenge U.S. military dominance in Asia or anywhere else. They accuse the Pentagon of hyping the China threat to justify its own enormous budget.
US President George W. Bush will express his administration's concern over China's military buildup against Taiwan when he meets Chinese President Hu Jintao (胡錦濤) in Washington tomorrow, a senior US government official said on Monday.
SYDNEY Transurban Group, Australia's second-biggest toll-road owner, said Wednesday that it has agreed to buy the Pocahontas Parkway in the U.S. state of Virginia for $611 million, gaining its first U.S. highway.
Transurban bought the rights to manage, operate and maintain the 8.8- mile, or 14-kilometer, highway known as State Route 895 for 99 years, the Melbourne-based company said in a statement. Transurban plans to link the route to Richmond International Airport.
Transurban is among companies attracted to the steady cash flows from toll roads that it estimates will spur $200 billion of acquisitions worldwide in the next 10 years.
Macquarie Infrastructure Group of Australia and Cintra of Spain received state approval in March for their $3.85 billion bid for Indiana's toll road as U.S. states sell rights to their highways to pay debt.
Pocahontas is Transurban's "first baby step into the U.S. market," said Jason Teh, a fund manager at Investors Mutual in Sydney. "A lot of the state governments there are running budget deficits and they need the cash from wherever they can get it."

Also goes on to state that Russian Nuclear Technology is 15 years ahead of the United Sates, and there are several massive Russian Nuclear Sub stationed just 12 miles off both the Western and Eastern US coasts - what do you reckon they are there for.
Also mentioned are recent report by a Russian General that in the current situation of the US, with its economy in tatters, alot of their troops overseas, no much grain left in silo's on home soil for storage, that the Russian could walk through the US in 3 days!
The economy's resilience has been a theme of several years' standing - one that predates the 9/11 attacks. The US output of goods and services has survived the damage of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, a run-up in oil prices, and the bursting of the high-tech balloon in early 2001.
Also, the US economy is planned to collapse next year, thats right 2007, Chinas is dropping any assets to do with the US dollar and buying up all the gold and silver they can find to save their financial position.
He states that China has 100 million combat troops at hand if they wanted to use them.Send heaps of troops overseas and leave your backdoor open to a ramming!
George goes on to say that Syria already has nukes and WILL initiate World War 3 by Lobbing one over at Israel. Drawing in more US resources and leaving Americas Goals wide open.
