In the Immortal Words of Daniel Pipes…
Read the whole thing, but also click through to the underlying article, it has a bit more to offer.
Pipes and I are approximately on the same page. I think the war of reformation will happen between the Shia primarily Iran, and the Sunni, primarily the House of Saud. I think the former are more likely to success, but that is yet open for debate. Regardless, both need to be reformed in heat of the reformational forge. Until they are there is danger of a serious conflict involving not just the Islamic nations, but the West and others as well.
Hillary Clinton's strategic plan at the State Department has lost the Middle East, and just about everything else
"This Is Going To Get Very Ugly" - Former Top CIA Officer Says "Obama Has Lost Control Of The Middle East"
Ugly is the understatement of the decade!
Obama Bluffs Again
Obama is a foolish man who disposed of his reputation quickly in the first year of his Presidency. Since then, no other nation, and no other man has feared him. He is a rube, and a dithering fool. While the US people, and our military still demand respect, our President and his Ship of Fools does not. And, so, is not respected.
EU has plans for ‘giant superstate’ just days after Britain voted Brexit
With France, Italy, and six other EU nations electorates agitating about EU-exit over sovereignty concert, the EU rolls out a massive anti-sovereignty program!? This seems a bit counterproductive, no?
Germany says 'won't let anyone take Europe from us'
Germany always wants to rule Europe. The idiot Europeans always let them, right up until the German's impose an autocratic socialist disaster, then the Europeans have to fight their way out.
Sorry Charlie, America is not coming to fight you out of this mistake. Good luck! No one will be coming to fight for the world's only dying trading block.
‘Brexit’ Expected to Rattle U.S. Economy, Shake Its Influence
The EU, Germany really, needs Britain more than Britain needs the EU.
More after the fold.
U.S.–China Economic Relations Continue to Sour
Nothing will make them feel more inferior than actually having a helm side view of exactly what the US can do to them. If that triggered an arms race, or accelerates the South China Sea race, great. The way to beat China is the same way we beat Japan, in WWII, Germany in WWII, and the USSR in the Cold War, out industrialize them through arms race. We don't even have to engage in the race, we only need look like we are racing. Once exhausted, and impoverished, they will infarct.
This goes for Putin's Russia as well, engage, arms race them into poverty, reduce the government, allow it to recreate itself.
Lather, rinse, repeat as necessary until they come to grips with the reality of the End of History and shift to free markets, republican governance, limited government regulations, and reformed religions.
This might take a while!
