CHINA AND VENEZUELA EXPAND SPACE COOPERATION
Well while we're following the global realignment taking place because of Washington's foolish "full spectrum dominance" policy, China and Venezuela have made a quiet little announcement:
Venezuela, China to launch satellite next year
Let's look at this in a larger context. The first factor we must recall is Russian President Vladimir Putin's decision a few years back to place a Russian naval base in Venezuela. This move, as I've noted elsewhere - The Byte Show for example - was met with nary a peep of protest from Washington, which had already committed itself to military adventures in Afghanistan and Iraq. Imagine the reaction to the presence of a permanent Russian naval base in this hemisphere under Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan... "Russian naval squadrons in Venezuela!?!? Ausgeschlossen!"
The reaction from Russia and South America to the out-of-control and insane imperialism of American's real corporate rulers could have been predicted; it had nothing to do with Mr. Chavez's socialism, and everything to do with what Mr. Putin repeatedly had warned Washington not to do, for in the wake of the collapse of Communism in Russia, Washington promised to to extend NATO into the former Soviet Republics such as Byelorussia and the Ukraine in an effort to "encircle" the Asian colossus. Of course, that promise was quickly broken and NATO has indeed been expanded. Then came Mr. Brzezinski's little "South Ossetia" misadventure, a problem and threat to Russian national security which Mr. Putin quickly and unilaterally resolved.
Secondly, it is interesting to note the purpose of this satellite is to monitor "troop movements" and that this satellite, according to the Venezuelan science minister, will be made available to other South American nations. This is a clear message to Washington that China and Venezuela perceive America's foreign policy as a threat, and this is a signal that the Anglo-American elite might finally have cracked; America is perceived as the threat and danger. We might speak in reality now of a final break between the "Anglo" and the "American" part of that elite; the one faction is now two. China is bidding for allies and friends in this hemisphere, and Latin America, so long raped and bullied by the instrumentalities of American economic power, is ripe for the picking. In this respect, we need to watch the moves of the major regional powers there - Brazil and Argentina - very carefully, for both China and Russia have signaled by all these moves that they've had enough, and Washington will simply not be able to dictate policy for the whole world.
We need only look at the recent trip of President Obama to Ireland to "find his Irish roots", and his incredible gaffs at the royal reception, to see that messages were being sent by Washington and understood by London: the game is over. Why else would the President have "mistakenly" signed the royal guest book with the wrong date, a date commemorating the Irish revolution against British rule? This followed Obama's curious speech from the White House in which he was flanked by pictures of Presidents Jefferson and Madison, with the Washington monument clearly visible in the window in the background: three presidents who defied the British.
Thirdly, this is an inevitable consequence of Washington's - or rather, the Pentagon's - insane policy of "full spectrum dominance," a policy wherein the Pentagon announced its intentions to be the dominant power in every field: finance, economics, technology, space, military....everything. This known policy, Zbigniew Brzezinski's enunciation of American foreign policy in The Grand Chessboard, American projection of military power into the Middle East, the recent - and in my opinion alarming - address of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to Congress.... all of this inevitably provokes not "full spectrum dominance" but reaction by those powers to being assigned a subservient role.
The bottom line is, we are losing, not gaining, friends, and losing them rapidly. Watch South America - and Africa - and watch China and Russia (and India) carefully, for in my opinion, we're witnessing a massive geopolitical realignment, and this satellite is the signal, from space, that these nations are not going to sit idly by and allow the USA to monopolize it for itself.

I think James provided the correct analogy. The US shows all the signs of an organism that’s in the later stages of being killed by parasites. In such situations, the clarity of mind to realize what needs to be done normally is absent or severely impaired.
The same is happening here in Switzerland. Over the last ten years a lot of public figures and – worse – characters pulling the strings have been replaced by a certain kind which would be easy to name but which would not entail the whole reality. To put it bluntly: a bunch of morons cannot take over a system so that it will continue. This is only done to trash things.
A lot of so-called historians and archaeologists should revise their stance on how it happened that cultures inexplicably went down; they could do this while waiting for the funds from certain foundations.
As I am not a religious person, I do not say we live in the end times. More correctly it should be stated that we live in the end times for SOME. And it doesn’t take a phuclear nisicist like our friend Stan to find out.
I also found Obama’s speech before the U.K. Parliament to be a bit bizarre as well. Here is one paragraph, but the whole thing was like a double entendre. Obama kept throwing both the American Revolution and the British bailout and Omaha & Normandy into the face of his audience:
“Of course, all relationships have their ups and downs. Admittedly, ours got off on the wrong foot with a small scrape about tea and taxes. There may have also been some hurt feelings when the White House was set on fire during the War of 1812. But fortunately, it’s been smooth sailing ever since!”
and near the middle:
These challenges come at a time when the international order has already been reshaped for a new century. Countries like China, India, and Brazil are growing by leaps and bounds. We should welcome this development, ….
And yet, as this rapid change has taken place, it has become fashionable in some quarters to question whether the rise of these nations will accompany the decline of American and European influence around the world. Perhaps, the argument goes, these nations represent the future, and the time for our leadership has passed.
That argument is wrong. The time for our leadership is now. It was the United States, the United Kingdom, and our democratic allies that shaped a world in which new nations could emerge and individuals could thrive. And even as more nations take on the responsibilities of global leadership, our Alliance will remain indispensible to the goal of a century that is more peaceful, more prosperous and more just.
It’s interesting, as I sit and watch the same kind of gross mistakes being made by various bureaucrats in my state. Either the U.S. leadership has all gone collectively insane simultaneously, or there is some kind of psychopathic group plan being acted out at various levels of leadership.
Maybe they are all being mind controlled to plunge us into total destruction. They are certainly doing a lot more damned stupid things (way more than usual, and that’s saying a lot) all of a sudden. It makes the worst Hollywood B-movie farce look like sober, sound judgment by comparison.
Wonder how Hunter S. Thompson would feel today – weird enough for him yet?
to plato: human traffiking is an organized crime activity not a foreing policy, organized crime is fuled mostly by the “war on drugs” an US forein and local goverments policy and other factors
US foreing polity is just insane, of coure they are seen as the agressors of latin america, even they dont have military interventions any more they still manipulate a lot of politics, of course with help of a lot of people inside the countries, its not only the US. Ecuador president asked the US to have a militar base near Washington if they wanted to have one there lol. Its just common sense. Currently the most damaging policy is the war on drugs, this is absolutly
stupidity and they are slowly literaly killing us, cartels and the war policy. Drugs need to be legal in Mexico and Latin America…like a comercial free zone then the US could do what they like with them once they reach the Mexican border..
The tenor of this piece seems to imply that other countries conduct their foreign policy from a loftier moral stance than the United States. This is simply not the case, particularly in reference to Latin America where practices such as human trafficking have become epidemic.

Yes we see the cardinal signs of inflammation.
Rubor, kalor, and tumor.
Now, the question is,
Is this a response toward healing or fulminating terminal illness?
