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

Posted in AIIB, China, CIPS, Cryptocurrency, Currency, NATO, Petrodollar, Pushitzer Prize In Commentary, Russia, Sanctions, SWIFT on April 19, 2021 by e-commentary.org

[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.”

NATOExit? NATOExeunt? (July 4, 2016)

Posted in Europe, NATO, War on July 4, 2016 by e-commentary.org

K          “The world is looking for the exit door and for the escape hatch.  We need to generate interest in a NATOExit by the Europeans.  The North Atlantic Treaty was designed to promote peace and preserve stability in Europe in the face of the threat from the then extant USSR.  Since the fall of the USSR, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has transformed from a defensive organization into an offensive organization.  Peace and stability are threatened.”

J          “Beneath it all, we are all looking to exit the planet.  How about PlanetExit.”

K          “If we can generate some interest in a NATOExit, we may be able to save the planet without departing it.”

J          “Sounds like a broader conception of Independence Day.”

. . .

K          “O’Bama continues to support NATO.”

J          “There is no hope that he will change.”
