* Yen benefits from continued fears of China credit crunch
* China still a focus even after PBOC tries to allay credit
* Dollar remains well supported on Fed's exit plan
By Lisa Twaronite
TOKYO, June 26 (Reuters) - The dollar turned down against
the yen in Asia on Wednesday as investors warily watched China's
stressed markets, but the greenback got support from U.S.
economic data which backed the Federal Reserve's recovery view
and bolstered U.S. Treasury yields.

Please, it'd be like shooting rubber bands at tanks. As for the civil disobedience, yeah what? And starve? Stop things, and within 3 days, stores run out of food. This isn't decades ago when you could just go harvest crops. A starving populace would be incapable of organized revolt. They'd be slaughtered, likely by cruise missiles and drones without ever seeing the enemy.edit on 27-6-2013 by Gazrok because: (no reason given)
When we look at the IMF-labeled ‘MENA’ region (Middle East/North Africa), which includes the US geostrategic targets of Libya, Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Yemen, we find that this is the region least integrated into the IMF/World Bank debt regime.
US and Western Pressures on Syria and the MENA countries
In one form or another, Syria and other MENA countries such as Libya, Iraq and Iran have been subjected to intense political and military pressures which have been both covertly and overtly engineered by the US and certain allied countries. It was the Neocon planners’ focus on the Middle East prior to the 9/11 event in 2001 (e.g. the US-based ‘Energy Infrastructure Planning Group’ or EIPG), which led to the US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, followed by US sponsorship and arming of opposition forces in Libya and Syria, intense and widespread sanctions policies on Iran backed by the EU, the Gulf sheikdoms and Turkey, and continuous military actions and threats by the US and Israel.

You're both wrong I was a Scout then.We went in to protect the saudi oil fields, we set up Saddam by telling him we didn't care about his adventureism into Kuwait before he did it.He then drew up plans to hit Saudi who called us in to stop him.We now had the excuse to do so and keep the machine in play.The 4th largest army in the world (Iraq)was destabilizing the middle east and we already had a problem with Iran.
That is why we didn't invade,just kill that capability of his army.
As to the second fight I don't know,I never knew how many chems we gave him in the first place. Intell and Gen Macinernie claimed SPETZNAZ transported them out but of course it is unconfirmed.
Nice scenario about a staged civil war.It's just another plan and they don't expect millions to fight,we will, but put your guns away for now.
I happen to know what happens to the simplest of plans when fighting starts. The troops are agile enough to adapt and compensate in the field command...not so much.POLITICAL COMMAND now they implode and start to panic,after all they aren't war fighters,the military is.
Exactly what percentage of beer drinking combat arms troops love Obama? Enough to counter those who don't?
How about MILLIONS of traditional Americans who are watching their country fall apart,do you think that I believe government will show up to help?
We DO NOT know it all but I know this.They move first.
Parts of this are true, but the one thing everyone seems to forget: a war with nukes solves nor takes anything, it wipes it all out. What good is land city's and fields if it is nuked?? 10,000 years from now if not longer??
