Those with the gold, make the rules. (found Economist article)

"WITH an unprecedented display of its rapidly growing naval armoury, China has flaunted its ambitions as a global power. To mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), Chinese leaders on April 23rd reviewed a maritime parade of hardware ranging from nuclear submarines to amphibious assault-craft and fighter bombers. The only missing ingredient of naval might was an aircraft-carrier. Officials hint it will not be long before China has some of these too.

Ten years ago, the PLAN’s 50th anniversary slipped by with little more than a few commemorative stamps and plenty of bunting. But the past decade has seen the fruits of a huge military modernisation and expansion programme, launched after tensions mounted in the Taiwan Strait in 1995 and 1996. This has included the purchase of billions of dollars worth of Russian naval hardware, and the deployment of homemade ships, submarines and missiles. The build-up has sent ripples of unease across China’s neighbourhood."

This is very interesting, I remember seeing a snippet on Unsolved Mysteries about 2 decades ago, one scene about the future showed soldiers running to their shoreside fortifications on the West Coast of US/Canada... Getting ready, like Germans on D-Day.


Seems like a possibly now! Apparently there might not be enough, if any, gold left in Fort Knox to pay off America's debts, maybe the elites have robbed the fort blind... Guess how else we're all going to pay for our 'leaders' screwing China over.

Who knows, there might be a Non-nuclear war truce between China and America and we have to slug it out old school style

Thank you for the reply star in a jar:

Quite clearly we are witnessing the decline of the American empire as we know it - bot financially an militarily.

As mentioned above - "Those with the gold make the rules".
