And There Goes Italy

World stock markets accelerated their falls on Tuesday as Italy struggled to avoid being sucked into the escalating European debt crisis, and Greece moved closer to a default.

The war planners in all their infinite wisdom always talk about the domino effect, which I’ve yet to see, but the place that theory always works is in economics.

Maybe our wise leaders are counting on being at the top of the failed state heap if Europe goes under just a little faster than we do.

As China watches and waits.

I see various articles with this same line of thinking lately:

America had high hopes that killing Osama Bin Laden will boost the morale of the Americans and the American allies. However, it seems that killing Laden has not helped and has actually backfired. Not only this move has not helped, but has actually hurt the American interests in Pakistan. Pakistan has seen a very big rise in the anti-American sentiment which was already quite strong there. Pakistan wants no US troops on its soil and is hunting for the US informants. Already, five informants who gave information to the CIA about Osama Bin Laden have been caught.


America has changed the focus of its foreign policy from Europe to Asia. It is trying a new tactic in its policy of containing China. America is inciting the countries such as Vietnam and Philippines to challenge China’s claims over the South China Sea. These countries are acting like the lackeys and stooges of America and are not only risking their own survival, but are also taking a risk to ignite a third world war in Asia.
