its sad to me that everyone around me thinks this is just another problem that time will eventually fix, i only stated the drug war in mexico as an follow up example on my believes as why the U.S government are capitalist rather than humanitarian.
the old divide and rule has always been a favorable method for the Europeans and later on the Americans, too bad there isn't any land available to be carved up nowadays to rescue the deep hole we dug up for our self. since new territory equals new markets.
and as always disagreement would always be placed upon the third party since they are always out gunned and out numbered by the big bullies(U.S and most European nations). this is a cruel cruel world and it'll get much crueler in the near future,
and as of march 2009, china has exceeded the U.S in production, first time ever another country outranks the U.S since the 1880s. by the look of things china would be the center of the 21st century and Russia currently holds as the number 1 oil producer. it was fun while it last it wouldn't you say?
Well, you seems quite wellinformed on some matters and realistic when it comes to the current crisis.
Russia is a country with a huge amount of natural resources. But their infrastructure and industry is inferior compared to most western countries and their stability and (if i would express my own opinion: Sanity) as a modern society is extremely crude it seems.
China Produces more than anyone yes it's true. but they hardly consume it all.
(Mostly that's YOU, the americans)
And they need you and us (europeans) and other developed countries to buy all their junk. Let's see it itll be a market left for them to sell too. they have been awfully dependent on US so far.
I would bet more on India.
I wonder how far this depression will take us. it might not be over just yet. and my own country has a few resources up its sleeves(like the worlds largest uranium deposits). Sadly though not a military left to defend it anymore.
Maybe there is new markets on the moon?
