Dragon < Eagle > Bruin; Dragon + Bruin > Eagle (April 19, 2021)

[The announcement of the 2021 recipient of the Pushitzer Prize in Commentary is postponed from today to June 7, 2021.]

. . .

J          “China won; China one; U.S. none; U.S. done.  With each passing day, the Chinese military is outflanking the bloated pork barrel project that is the U.S. military without touching off a round or launching a missile.  CIPS is swiftly circuiting and circumventing SWIFT.  National currencies, gold, silver and cryptos are supplanting the PetroDollar.  Technology that was lifted is now legally acquired.  Critical resources that were purloined are now purchased.”

K          “For decades, the Eagle kept the Dragon and the Bruin in their corners.  Now the Dragon and the Bruin have found common ground to overcome their considerable differences, challenge their common enemy and push the Eagle into a corner it does not even recognize.  The vote in 2015 on the AIIB was the most revealing of the ultimate winner and the ultimate loser.”

. . .

K          “The U.S. is desperate to start and expand more wars and is looking to fight Russia or use proxies to fight Russia.  The Bruin is going to be a bear.”

J          “I am as uneasy about Russia as I am about China, but the U.S. should not go knocking on the Russian door and starting a fight on the Russian door step.  When I walked the streets in different cities, I was struck by the steely resolve of the people that is totally absent in the U.S.”

. . .

K          “Our goose is cooked.”

J          “We are dead ducks.”
