    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A government report released Thursday paints an alarming picture of an unstable future for international relations defined by waning American influence, a fragmentation of political power and intensifying struggles for increasingly scarce natural resources.
    The report aims to better inform policymakers, starting with the administration of President-elect Barack Obama .

    America is a First-World country with Third-World aspirations.

    Look, you might get a reality check but you won't go that far backwards, you just can't.

    It's a bit like us in Aus. We're lucky in that we have a lot of resources in a big land mass with a small population. Even the idiots in our governments can't COMPLETLEY stuff things up!

    You'll be okay, bit of a wobble and you'll be up and about in no time.

    Solutions?
    1. Greener energy cration and use: AND?

    2. Stop FREE TRADING policies with nation which impose tariffs on our goods. FYI that's pretty much EVERY NATION WE TRADE WITH, folks.

    Whose fault is that? OURS!

    Whose fault is that? OURS!


    Whose fault is that? OURS!


    And STILL we keep giving them trade advantages. ARe our masters totally nuts? Only an investigation of their balance sheets will tell us for sure. I suspect what we would discover is their balance sheets improve as America's financial problem grow because of their stupid stupid trade policies for AMERICA.




    We have shitloads of natural resources. Of course as we're becoming a colony, a third world, one with no manufacuturing, we can expect to see those resorces shipped offshore to come back to us as finished goods later.

    We have nobody to blame but our own leaders, folks.

    They will if we continue to elect leaders who care more about the GLOBAL economy, than about the AMERICAN economy, that's for damned sure.



    And if we keep bringing in illegal aliens, we will piss away the natural resources advantage that this nation is blessed with, too.


    We can fix this problem the moment we get the political will to get the oiliocracy out of power, folks. there's no shortage of energy, just a shortage of political BALLS.



    What a shame we will have outsourced America's ability to produce the military hardware we'll need to deal with those future problem, eh?


    Terrorism is the least of our problems, folks.

    Not one of the above problems is insoluable IF we stop electing leaders who care more about WALL STREET than MAIN STREET.

    Ah but recruits WANT to get it right.

    Our leaders talk a good game about getting it right, but then their policies suggest that they really have a hidden agenda.

    But our land mass is being overwhelmed by Third-Worlders who have low intelligence and primitive ways... we're going for a population of a billion if present rates continue, about 10 percent of which would be white. America is turning into a shit fondue, and whites will be fighting for their lives as in South Africa and Zimbabwe.

    In your own country, the whites are just as eager to hand everything over to the brown-skins of Asia.

    Seems to be a white problem. You don't see whites overrunning China.

    Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

    Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?

    Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.

    Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.

    Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!

    Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...

    Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!

    Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
