Barack Obama, the Powerless

leave a comment »

The United States stimulus package depend on China’s economy: where will the money promised by Barack Obama come from? From the other side of the Pacific Ocean and, this is the funny thing, from a Communist power.

This is a crisis, isn’t it? And someone is saying that it’s similar to the Great depression of 1929.  I’m not sure whether we are in depression, but I’m very scared by the particular of the US debt bought by Chines money-savers: what happen if the US cannot pay back the bonds they’ve issued?  

The answer is World War III. Barack Obama is a great and wise man, but the game he’s running is very dangerous: China’s economy will keep growing for a while. But what will happen if it stops? The answer is the same. This means that the real center of world power is not in Washington DC but in Beijing, China.

This passage is similar to those happened between the two World Wars across the Atlantic Ocean: at those time, it was up to Europe to pass the hand. Now, believe it or not, nobody can save the world better than Mr. Jiabao, the President of PRC with a huge number of political consequences for our democracies: how can we manage the problem – as an example – of Tibet with a China holding us by our bollocks?

Today’s meeting of G-7 is useless such as the Society of the Nation was useless  between the two World wars. The same is for the next April 2nd G-20: our only hope is Chinese economy. If the guys in Beijing will be smart enough to save their own economy, President Obama’s Stimulus Plan will be somehow useful. Otherwise, start preying your God.
