I want your opinion on this and I am not familiar with economics, so please bear with me and some of my "assumptions".
What US is doing is probably playing politics with China and acting like some impending doom is upon us, when in fact, our government could be hiding
some 'secret technology' such as renewable super energy source or a way to harvest energy (alien?) which could radically change our economy and
Look, it's easier to play victim and to present our forces to the other (China) as weak or diminishing, when it fact, governments lie all the time,
as Assange revealed to us not that long ago.
US has been the world super power since the collapse of the Soviet Union, and even prior to that, wouldn't it be rational to assume that we were
investing money in some Independence Day Alien Style technology? While most Chinese were still farming?
Chinese are known for copying and even improving our technology, but I haven't heard of any new radical life changing inventions from their side.
Consider this, in 2005, 9 billion dollars of Iraq reconstruction money went missing.
... in 2010, same
story, 9 billion missing Source 2
. There was some
speculation that it was money laundering etc..
Let's assume that our gov't has been 'quietly' taking money out of different resource pools, then what do you get? A very high probability that we
are not fools who didn't prepare for the rainy day, in fact, we might very well have a secret Independence Day, Men in Black, Area 51 research
facility after all.
If the US government was originally created by the Illuminatti (Masons) and this group still exists, even if they have been sucking money out of the
average Joe, I still believe that they are not fools and have been preparing for the rise of China for a very long time.
Considering that the US actually does have this source of energy or some other magnificent resource which will awe the masses of the world, we can see
that our government will lay low for sometime, and maybe have China excuse out debts in order to allow it to grow in power, then one day, we will
reveal this 'secret' and create new jobs and build a whole new infrastructure, while China will be left behind again.
I do not feel like writing any more, please contribute if you have any additional information. Just my thought, someone please research this and make
a better informed thread.. Anything is possible.
