    "The Calm Before the Storm"

    Russia and China have both been watching the weakness of America's resolve in the Middle East. Where once America was a chief architect in shaping the world, participating in decisions on the geopolitical stage, today we are mere bystanders watching the world go by.

    One of the consequences for those who do not use their authority is that they run the risk of having it taken from them and used against them. Such is the case for America.

    By signing on with the UN's one world international order, we've signed away much of our freedom, our rights, and our sovereignty. We have agreed to restrictions on our energy resources which are crippling us and will soon cause us to become a 3rd world country. Why is it that neither Russia or China have complied with the demands of the UN and Climate Change Czars?

    Reading an article about the South China Sea dispute recently, I noted that, Defense Secretary Ash Carter, emphasized the term, “International Order," "global order" and "World Order" in the interview. As if it were a code word that would automatically cause Russia and China to submit to the UN and cease from their actions.

    It appears that China and Russia are not interested in the International Order the Western based - UN, has designed. They have been working on the creation of their own World Bank via BRICS nations. While Russia appears to be working toward a monopoly on natural gas, China is working toward controlling a shipping route that is used to carry trillions of dollars in commerce each year.

    Both nations have become emboldened by the weakness they perceive in America's leadership. While the Russians are seizing land that does not belong to them, China is building artificial islands and establishing bases in waters that do not belong to her. Some believe China is making preparations to invade Taiwan.

    Russia has been bombing the home base city of ISIS, without regard for non-ISIS citizens living in those districts. It is noteworthy to mention that the UN does not appear to have anything to say about it. Neither Russia or China have been bullied by the UN into receiving the Syrian, Iraqi, Afghani, Pakistani and South African “refugees” that Europe and North America have been forced to receive.

    Could it be that the UN knows that neither Europe or America have the will or ability to resist their demands? There is a perfect storm approaching. WWIII will dwarf WWII and WWI combined in both size and death toll. Perhaps the main players inside the UN are aligning themselves now, to garner favor later on with whom they believe, will be the “winners.”

    The clear and present danger for America is that our enemies sense our weakness They know that this is not the same America that President Ronald Reagan once lead. President Obama has kept his promise to transform America.

    Our military has been gutted, our nation has been utterly demoralized and our foundations are crumbling under the massive weight of an 18 trillion dollar debt. The shredding of our Constitution and with it, the burgeoning immigration and creation of sanctuary cities is draining the very last of our life's blood from us.

    The storm clouds are gathering on the horizon, our battle ship is not seaworthy and our Captain is woefully unprepared. Our enemies are watching and waiting. Their silence is an ominous warning for America.

    This is the calm before the storm.

    China has the economic leverage to shut us down inside a year. Their loans finance about 23% of our YEARLY costs just to maintain what we have now.

    Wow, talk about unwarranted hysteria.

    Debt by country:
    China 1 Trillion
    Japan 1 Trillion
    England 500 million

    When is Japan going to 'foreclose' and shut down our economy? It's ludicrous. If China does such a thing it loses the gigantic amount of income from the US. It won't happen.

    Militarily spending:
    US 650 billion/yr
    China 130 billion/yr
    Russian 80 billion/yr

    Yet somehow WE are the ones that are weak? WE are the ones who need to be scared? In what fantasy world?

    We've launch 6800 sorties against Isis since we started bombing them. Yet Russia has somehow become a superpower by launching less than a hundred? You watch too much tv.

    Being scared of anyone else in the world has zero basis. Maybe in 30-40 years China may be strong enough to be a direct rival, but until then they are a paper tiger. We are the 1000 lb Bengal tiger sunning itself in the grass because it knows no one, NO ONE, is going to fuck with it other than a fly buzzing around its face.

    75% of those sorties come back without ever having dropped a bomb. Posted that here myself. Our debt load is simply to big and this current economy proves that.
