Here is a small tip -
The US has $69 Trillion dollars worth of unfunded liabilities - this is more than 1.5 times global GDP = Every American OWES $500,000 dollars which is $35,000 dollars a year EACH for 75 years with interrest.

Which part of the "THE END OF THE AMERICAN CENTURY" is escaping Americans ??

Weird thing is we have all been screaming at you about things and you wouldn't listen - now you wonder waaas uuuuuuuuuup?

Yeah! the Chinese are out on a shopping spree, making deals over natural resources, buying companies and are doing large investments in oil-rich & other natural resources rich African countries like Nigeria etc.

They are spending all their dollar savings from their piggy banks into investments that has an real value, now when the dollar is still worth something.

Now South America is next on that shopping list and I think we'll see more of these deals coming from China.

But the Chinese are also starting to do some trade by-passing the dollar.

Now look at Chaves, dealing Venezuelan oil & other resources like aluminum directly to China, trading for weapon tech and other important goods.

Russia and China are also doing big swaps of trade outside of the dollar system as well.

Sorry to say this! but the dollar as an reserve currency is in deep problems here, and the old 'dollar hegemony' days could soon be over.

So if this would be the beginning of a goodbye to the most unfair 'Petro Dollar Recycling System'? - it surely won't be missed by the rest of the world!

The most interesting question would be - what will they replace it with?

And how long would such a process take, without destroying the rest of the world economy?


But one thing is already clear, China is on the rise to be the worlds next empire!

If I wasn't soo busy & damn lazy, I would have already started to learn the Mandarin Chinese language - for good business investments!

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

Excellent. Time to destroy the American middle class and their sense of "entitlement".

Good times.

Currently you have the US in the middle East making business deals as usual,

(the end of a gun barrel)

While the Chinese are making deals and friends through Diplomatic missions

It's little wonder that Brazil is opting for China as a predominant trading partner. They're a human rights catastrophe, but their sphere of influence in S America is still limited to commerce. US trade agreements have traditionally favored the US and come with financial, political and military commitments. I'm not assuming that they wouldn't want to...but...they (China) aren't 'suggesting' that trading partners agree to military bases or seek approval for political leaders...


About 6,300 American soldiers, not counting soldiers from non-governmental agencies contracted by the U.S. government, were based or have operations in the Amazon region between 2001 and 2002, according to the Army Intelligence Center (SRC) in Brazil.
