America and China Joined at the Hip

By DAVE LINDORFF

18/9/08 "Counterpunch" -- - With the government now having spent over $800 billion in less than a year shoring up tottering financial companies that had become little more than casinos (and rigged ones at that), America is looking increasingly like China, a country where the state has been gradually getting out of the business of directly owning companies.

China frets at US risk after Fannie/Freddie bailout

The U.S. Treasury's takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is good news in the short term for China, the biggest holder of the giant mortgage lenders' debt, but Beijing's huge U.S. exposure still poses a serious risk, a prominent government researcher said on Monday.

China to overtake US as largest manufacturer

China is set to overtake the US next year as the world’s largest producer of manufactured goods, four years earlier than expected, as a result of the rapidly weakening US economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering all the incentives the US government gives to encourage companies to offshore their manufacturing, it's almost amazing that it's taken this long to happen.

WAR ALERT!!!

The largest US/EU naval armada assembled since the start of Gulf War I now is taking up station just outside and inside the Persian Gulf, with significant battle groups just coming off an extensive joint military exercise timed to end just now. America never will be more ready to take on Iran, or so it thinks.

The US has announced its intention to emplace a naval blockade of Iran. That, in itself, is an act of war under international law. Never mind that Iran has done nothing to deserve this. Neither Russia nor China, strategic trading partners of Iran's will take this lying down.

China revokes visa of gold medalist, Darfur activist Cheek

Olympic gold medalist and outspoken Darfur activist Joey Cheek has had his visa revoked by the Chinese embassy, hours before the speedskating champion was set to fly to China. And he wasn't even planning on wearing a mask when he got there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In ancient times, the Olympics were held in such high respect that wars would stop for the duration of the games, and competitors from the opposing sides would meet on the athletic fields, have the games, and while it would be too much to expect they would be friends, they were at least cordial according to contemporary records.

These degenerate times every government on Earth seems to feel that the Olympics exist solely either to make money or political points, and the athletes are just stands on which to hang medals to be admired, or pawns to be discarded if they fail to produce the required political results.
