Take it for what it's worth...and leave the rest.
I know that there's a planned war between the US and China scheduled for late 2008. This is also geopolitical and not concerned with Black Ops as such. These were both just events that I got to hear about in passing. I have no detailed information about them.
Q. You mean that China and the US are working together to stage a war?
A. The Pentagon started the planning in 1998. You have to understand that China and the US are hand in glove with everything. This war is a joint op between the US and China. Most wars are set up that way and have been for a while. You want something else that's just unpleasant to hear? I also heard from someone who was serving in a unit that worked with missiles deployed for testing in the Pacific and the Far East. The missiles were shipped to the test location in very tightly- sealed containers, very secure, hermetically sealed. After the tests, the container would be shipped back, sealed the same way, but empty, supposedly empty. On one occasion, this guy was present when a container was opened. It wasn't empty. It was filled with bags of white powder.

Hmm seems that it could go either way really... The US could have been created as a scapegoat from the very beggining enabling these fat cats to get super obesse when the economy crashes.
Heres a quick thought... What if the American public all put $10,000 each into a bank account and payed off some of the debt themselves? Surely that would ease the pressure a bit giving the economy a fighting chance?
But then again I can't see Americans giving up 10g willy nilly, most of em dont even know they are on the brink of a massive recession.

You and your people have to start seeing it for what it is, your govt is screwing you all over with debt and corporations are sending all your jobs overseas! China owns it all now and can pretty much do as it pleases.
Stop the war and work on getting Bush out of there and have corporations return to US soil!

Every day someone predicts our economic demise. Mostly lying Politicians trying to scare people into voting for them. Sometimes other countries lying trying to scare us for some insidious reason. Often hate mongers who see this as a jab in the eye to their imaginary opponent. Sadly sometimes Americans who are very misinformed or who are trying to fabricate evidence to support some brain-dead cause. You know, the same people who preach Freedom of Speech and then won't allow people they don't agree with to speak. The Loony Tunes who storm stages at Universities and yell crazy stuff over loud speakers to deny others Freedom of Speech.
The later seem to be the source of this phony gloom and doom lately. Now other countries have used this as a weapon in Public Opinion against us. These crazed extremists have become the source of self fulfilling prophecy. Their lies have become common ammunition for our enemies.
Take the time to look up the charts on Trade Deficits. Then compare our wealth per capita to the rest of the world. America and in fact all of the Western Industrialized World is in no danger of an economic collapse. Even though we suffer highs and lows, our current low is still better than most of the 40 years preceding the Clinton Administration when the you know what Party ran the Congressional Show.
While you are perusing the Trade Deficits, imagine if we were to stop buying Chinese Products? Some would say they will sell to other countries. Not so. What other country would destroy their own economy without need just to hurt us. If they hurt us they hurt themselves. Look at what that tiny pseudo-boycott of France did to them.
The dollars value was artificially lowered to combat the swiftly approaching problem of inflation. It could be turned the other direction and will be when the threat of out of control inflation has passed. In the mean time, those who hate America will continue with the daily Mantra that our economy is soon to collapse. When it does not, I'll bet they don't come back and apologize. They will find a new Mantra of Hate to spew forth. Haters hate and they have to have a target even if they have to fabricate one.

The U.S. economy is definitely going downhill... there are financial analysts now who are not just expecting a recession (I think we're already in one) but another Great Depression. Hold on to your seats!
What I find interesting is that people always think our government and the Fed are stupid for doing what they do.
Recently I listened on Coast to Coast AM to Catherine Austin Fitts, a former government employee (Housing Department) and founder and president of an investment bank. She says the gov is definitely not stupid -- they make certain decisions for their own reasons and don't mind when the "great unwashed" think they're incompetent... which is better than the public knowing what they're really up to.
Another guest on Coast to Coast AM (I think it was Sean David Morton, remote viewer and financial advisor) recently said that the gov/Fed WANT the dollar to collapse to pave the way for the NAU and the Amero.
I might be paranoid, but I think our government is just plain evil, not stupid.

This is why I will vote for Ron Paul. I do believe he is the only honest man running.

China cannot sustain its current growth with a slave economy without the masses growing restless. As some get wealthy and others become more slaves than people, they will revolt (maybe peacefully).
We could shred every dollar bill on the planet and the United States would still thrive though it would have some difficult time standing its own production lines back up.
The US does not really need the rest of the world. We are smart enough, intelligent enough, caring enough and free enough to see our way through.
