China In The Cabinet

Folder: 
Scitilop Politics

.

I do not get usa backing Taiwan when it was decided it would be returned to China. Violating the terms of Taiwan retainng some autonomy will not be honored by a dictatorial oligarchy. What western diplomat thought that was going to happen? Like Afghanistan we the taxpayer built a nation then split and by some inconcievable expectation usa was suppose to continue to finance their banks.
.

The nations who siphoned off contractor dollars screamed against usa leaving because trillions were filtering into EU pockets and the countries surrounding Afghanistan. The spice was flowing! Now nothing. Electric cars ubiquitously made will finish destabilizing the middle east. Israel knows this and is getting mouthy with usa too. What is that old saw about hands bitten and food? Not the army that takes a country wins, the nation that owns the wealth takes the victory. Coffers empty? Who won? Ask the Viet Namese.

.

One convoy of relief was attacked by Taliban soldiers and the aid - food/medicine was taken. The Pentagon did not see that coming? They stone women to death. Cut off hands and quash the media - reporters arrested and beaten bloody. That 9 billion in usa and monies in western banks is just a small amount paid back on what we invested in the territory Taliban took from usa and boasted about it, talking big about how they beat us and won. Big talk, phyrric victory. You cannot run a country without resources and allies. The way China is learning you shave down billionares and forbid mega corporations, with loan defaults looming, posturing not helpful.
.

We left in every way. This winter tens of thousands will starve or migrate. They did not fight for their country. Dependency syndrome. Time to get in the exit line.

.

I understand border countries blasting usa, telling us what we better do to protect them from refugees. Good luck With that. we just got hit with a shitload of tornadoes.  Patronizing usa is not a good posture. Like vaccine, we will send some food. But not enough for perpetual need. We got Omicron and North Korea to quell. And you know us, we will trash the world's economy. Keep fuckin' with us!
.

I simply find it odd that the Taliban insult us then demands that we continue to finance them. Why are they thinking that? We've moved on, so should they. Winter is coming and Biden just got the biggest military budget in our history for signature placed on his desk. He'll sign it (if not already) because of China. And suicide bombers. And cyber attacks.

A Conundrum

Pic of starving babies are heart rending. Watch what Taliban says vs what they do. They get a grade of E. Their population will not protest, they will die - the workd gives them cash, Taliban is going to but food and med for Corona or disbetica? No, weapons. I am not in the gvt ir he UN but why not send food and meds. I'm just sayin'

And Somalia

and North Korea, Central America, Haiti, and Cuba. We pay farmers to not farm, and pay subsidies to guarantee they make a fixed amount, but black farmers are denied the subsidy and go out of business or live impoverished.
.

The good news is . . .  Amazon distribution center coming to Detroit - traffic and pollution - no wories, it will be in the middle of a black northeast side neighborhood. High turn-over jobs, non-union in a Union town. Not a good combination of jobs v quality of life. 
.

Tearing out old pipes and putting in new ones is going to be fun to watch. 5-G adds more in the air for changing climate to topple. The Governments are concerned almost exclusively about the economy and money flowing out of Detroit.
