New Silk Roads to energize Asia’s vast economic potential – CCTV News – CCTV.com English: The Chinese are focused like a laser on expanding trade and gaining profits. Since Japan has turned away from cooperation with China, they are looking towards Africa, India, Russia, Turkey and the EU for more customers. The US is concentrating on continuing trade deficits, trying to isolate Russia even though China won’t do this and isolating Iran which China is also going to service with this new Silk Road rail system they intend to build.
China, U.S. vow to deepen military relations actually, they want to have parity with the US and more negotiations recognizing China’s rising role.
TV: Only ‘some’ of Fukushima melted fuel is now solid — Nuclear Expert: Molten core ‘re-melts’, even with enough cooling water — Japan Engineer: “The Fukushima accident was the first of its kind” (VIDEO): The US media nearly totally ignores Fukushima. But it still is roaring onwards polluting the Pacific. This affects the US, of course, which is why it is being ignored while we are told the Japanese are our best buddies in Asia.
The EU media keeps saying things are OK and the sanctions against Russia aren’t biting hard but Eurozone deflation deepens in January which they hope to fix the French way by printing a trillion euros and spreading this all over the place except…Greece won’t cooperate with ‘troika,’ rejects aid extension. This is actually getting rather amusing in a horrible way:
Without the aid, Greek banks could face being shut off from European Central Bank funding.
“This position enabled us to win the trust of the Greek people,” Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said Friday during a joint press conference with Jeroen Dijsselbloem, head of the eurozone finance ministers’ group.
“Our first action as a government will not be to reject the rationale of questioning this program through a request to extend it,” Varoufakis said. “We respect institutions but we don’t plan to cooperate with that committee.”
As the EU implodes after sucking into its maw all of Eastern Europe, the last nation to be sucked in is in serious trouble and won’t be a country much longer but like Yugoslavia, will be cut into pieces: Thousands of Ukrainian troops thought to be trapped in Donbass:
At least 7,000 Ukrainian troops are believed to be surrounded near the village of Debaltsevo in Donbass, as militia units cut off the only road linking the pocket to Kiev-held territory. The servicemen have been offered the chance to surrender.
But money can be made if Germany and the US hand out euros and dollars to the coup in Kiev. ‘It’s business’: Poland ready to sell weapons to Ukraine if Kiev has money. So, we lost the war for Afghanistan, two US ‘advisors’ were assassinated in Kabul, right in the heart of our last hold out. Iraq has been utterly destroyed and a trillion US dollars lost there, we don’t control the oil, either.
Our trade routes bring only woes to US citizens and workers as they are thrown out of work after buy ‘cheap’ goods thanks to the strong US dollar. They have electronics and cars and no jobs. What a fine deal this has been for us. The Chinese laugh all the way to the bank while the US and EU frantically print money to pay for all this.
