    So through dire mismanagement and corruption, CFK has brought the country to its knees. China and Russia are now picking over the bones, and CFK is lauding it as a new world order. Lol.

    In a world that becomes multi-polar again,” the head of “multi-polarism” said. ““The emergence of new actors will offer our countries new and better opportunities,”

    This gibberish is the direct result of TMBOA’s Espanol being a hotch-podge of various other languages from the colonialists of The Dark Country, including her parents. I wonder what she could mean by “nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and judiciary”, are they going to bomb all the judges (except those who “support” her (and she could 'change' her mind on them)?

    Yes, it’s all going so well they will default by the end of the month

    The notorious lunatic asylum known as ‘Bedlam’ must have been an oasis of peace and calm compared to The Dark Country.

    It is frightening that they can't see what Chinese “investment” has done in Venezuela and Africa.
    Those countries are WORSE off with the investment. The marvelous road, bridges etc the Chinese built in Africa are already falling apart and the loans still need to be paid back. Venezuela is 2 years away from having nobody able to refine their oil. Great deal China made with Chavez. But where's the refinery? It was in the USA but in 2 years it will be through the conversion so that it can only process our oil not theirs.

    I find these silly ideologically blinded creatures running failed countries fascinating. It is amazing the population keeps electing them over and over again while they continue to get poorer.

    Talking to the Chinese and Russians about “a world where one rule over others” is one thing, but “it will be a world of cooperation”.

    She might try talking to either countries neighbours to get a view on that. Anywhere from Ukraine to the Philippines should do.

    Not quite as simple as who currently has the most “Space Cadets”.

    Argentina is quite simply the “neighbour from hell”, for all its neighbours, just ask the Uruguayans.

    There are currently no disputes between any countries in the British Isles. No reason any more for anyone to grow up hating anyone else. No more wars with France or Germany either. Only Argentina.

    The current debate in Scotland is going to be resolved peacefully, in a referenda which has been agreed by all parties.

    China is currently in dispute with all its maritime neighbours over Islands it has recently laid claim to, and when does Tibet or Turkmenistan get to vote in a free and fair referenda.

    No confession here, we are protestants.

    “Right now” we live in the modern world of today, not the past before we were born.

    And whatever we may, or may not have done in the past, is absolutely no excuse for what China does today.

    So, yes you are being judged, and found sadly wanting.

    If you want to see how China could be, look at Taiwan.

    Here go educate yourself.

    No need to thank me.

    That newspaper paper report, wicked, also lie!

    West country jealous China. Newspaper report smells envy much afar.

    Envy brings confess: west country say newspaper report “-up with a vengeance.

    For China, the BRICS alliance is at most a useful tool. By making out that, unlike those heartless North American and European imperialists”

    Very good true.

    Thank you you again confess.

    China is on the verge of collapse. They have an asset/credit bubble that is about to burst along with a rapidly slowing economy and massive civil unrest in the outer provinces.
    They are also harassing their neighbors to an extent that one of them might pop them back pretty soon.
    When China goes it is going to be really ugly and they don't have the resources to keep this up for much longer.

    The Chin has no clue how to manage a capital economy. It is going to be interesting when you government can no longer hide the bubbles and when they burst in the near future.

    Yuan will never be a world currency because for starters, it is not market based. Eat any good dog lately?

    You are so sad tobi, maybe you wish your daddy was a chin it would be easier on your mouth.

    China would be in a sever depression now if not for the HUGE amount of debt its created over the last 5 years.
    They're in such a bind, they let big companies borrow to produce stuff nobody wants. Their warehouses are chock full of obsolete items still on the books at full price.
    They're in such a quandery, do you force the business to actually be profitable or make stuff and keep up employment.
    Its all fake growth
    It won't last too much longer.
    Even the huge amount of debt didn't buy them much productivity last year. The velocity has slowed tremendously.
    It is going to be really ugly when this system crashes.
    Really ugly for just about everyone but the USA.

    Yankeeboy, you are quite foolish if you believe all the BRICS are going to collapse, Latin America struggle, Europe continue to have problems, and the United States won't feel it a bit.

    If what you say will happen all over the world, then we will also be in severe trouble and if you don't think so then you don't know much about modern economics.

    I was thinking more like bi-polar but multi-polar works.

    Rob, I think you are assuming a lot from what I posted. I think the Bric will actually go through a long recession ( except maybe india) shortly whether or not China implodes. Most of these countries are very poorly managed and have not made structural changes to get away from the Progressivism/Socialism that will be their demise.

    When China implodes the USA may have a few years of adjustment but we are the only country in the world that can ramp up mfg quickly enough to make up for their shortfall.

    I am not worried about the USA at all.
