Well, it doesn't seem to be getting any better for the dollar. Everyday we are hearing moans and groans from the likes of China, Russia, Brazil, and
now a trusted ally India. My goodness, has the United States got themselves' in a bottleneck. The dollar is being assaulted by all sides. I'll say
it as I have in the past, doing business with China is like doing business with the Soviet Union although the Soviet Union was never as savvy as the
Chinese. All the international community did when jolly old tricky Dickie (Richard Nixon) opened China was take an ugly decrepit woman (Mao's China),
gave her a make-over (international business relationships), and bought her a designer dress (ways of capitalism), but take that away; and you get
that ugly woman again with all her imperfections (Hard-line Communism and a virulent distaste for the West). The Emperor (China) never changed-- he
just has new clothes.
The US sealed it's own fate by taking the cheese offered by China and unfortunately that cheese was laced with strychnine. It is only a matter of
time before the Chinese and the rest of their co-op pull the plug on the dollar. They figured out how to effectively destroy the United States without
firing a shot. These tactics are in the "Art of War," and the Chinese have been playing this strategy against the West like a piano. The Chinese are
letting greed and opulence devour the United States.
"Thus those skilled in war subdue the enemy's army without battle .... They conquer by strategy." Sun Tzu 2,400 years ago.
They saw the United States' addiction to the "green eyed monster," (money) and they used it against the United States. In other words, the Chinese
are the heroin dealer (debt financiers) and the United States' are the junkie and the United States' have insatiable urge for it's fix
(international credit). It is only a matter of time before the junkie gets a hot dose (an abrupt dumping of the dollar). I'm an American and I really
feel sad at how the US has painted itself in a corner, however, we cannot deny the brilliance of China's strategy.
