    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

US-Asia Foreign Policy - In One Cartoon

Tyler Durden's picture




 

We recently questioned whether things were falling apart in US-Asia relations...as the Trans-Pacific Partnership lies battered on the floor; this seemed to sum it up rather well...

Japanese toilets = best in the world.

Chinese toilets = hell on earth.

Cartoon explained.

And yet luxury car sales to the lucky few Chinese with all da money are off the charts.  For the masses, toilets from hell.  Coming soon to the West.

Notice the tell in the names:  "China" Policy with "Japan" bailing out on "Obama".
Not on the US, but Obama.

Subtle, telling, deep subliminal messages like this popping up all over in MSM.

Ha, is he now experiencing loneliness or solitude?
What was the other telling report?  When retired he wanted to host some ESPN program?

Nice candidate leftie wing of same party.
You watch.  In 2016 the Republicans with an election to loose will run a demented McCain again.
But this time complete with a drool cup.

Hildabeast is trying to crawl out from under that Benghazi bus that ran her over. The Milliennials don't want a 70 year old post-menepausal liar for POTUS. She's done, along with the Dems hopes in 2016.

He wasn't there.  He never heard about it.  It wasn't his fault.  Nobody asked him.

It's what's brewing on the back burner that has the ME on prozac or ecstacy,... there's talk of a 'Middle-East Free-Trade Area (Zone'd?)'. Think of a grandiose zeitgeist `Neo-Marshall Plan', to create a foundation for a progressive, and fledgling ME trying to find it's place in the world other than being pawns for it's natural resources?!? ... with the people deciding their future rather than a foreign entity electing it's leaders???  (this is now what the USSA looks like to the world since forty years of presidents and congress-people are locked into a lifetime of office, because of jerrymandering or via redistricting or the appeal of lobbying takes them out with corporation now having people's rights-- corporations are people too, says, SCOTUS Roberts)

Think about it for a second-- Iran's 'Nuclear Detente' and Saudi Arabia literally throwing hundred's of thousand illegal workers out of the country. Why?

Can you imagine a 21st century ME with 'State-of-the-Art' Technology and safe nuclear energy to facilitate a humongous geography (Iran & SA Landmass) and demographic infrastructure-- it's desalination (nat-gas?) plants turning a desert into a lush garden with so many ancillary industries given birth,... etc., etc.,.. jmo

As none of the ME countries has anything like a free society that even fakes a policy of human rights, their only path to international power, other than through leveraging their oil, is through hyper ramped nationalism, which radical islam templates perfectly. Most ME country's populations hate their leadership, but will ralley about them if they think their country is under attack. We template that behavior perfectly as well. All international alliances are still ony about the individual country's advantage. There ultimately are no "friends" only those who support you to advance their own aggenda.
