How Brazil Is Getting Ready to Crush an Expected US Invasion of the Amazon PDF Print E-mail
2012 - January 2012
Written by Carlos Chagas   
Monday, 23 January 2012 04:42

Brazilian Army in the jungle Nothing better than to start the year trying to play a guess game: which was the most ecologically regrettable episode in 2011? In our view, it was the fact that former minister Marina Silva left the Green Party (Partido Verde), something that will rekindle the dispute waged for decades or even centuries over the sovereignty in the Amazon.

The eternal vultures of the Northern Hemisphere once again use this opportunity to return to that old rigmarole that it will be easier to call the region a patrimony of humanity, which should be administered by an international power, that would rule over the Amazonian countries governments.

Now and then, the New York Times editorials work as a kind of bugle call capable of enlisting several assault troops.

Twenty years ago we had an increase in the institutionalized blitz by the rich countries governments from Al Gore in the United States, for whom Brazil didn't own the forest, to François Mitterrand of France, Felipe Gonzalez of Spain, Mickhail Gorbachev of the Soviet Union, Margaret Thatcher and John Major, of Britain, among others.

During his first presidential campaign, George W. Bush went on to suggest that countries with large external debts should be able to pay them with forests, something equivalent to forgive the countries of North Africa and the Middle East, which have only deserts.

In those days, the campaign bordered on the limits between the ridiculous and hilarious, since in order to convince children and youngsters, preparing them to join the invading forces, even Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and other cretins in costume took their adventures to the Amazon, where they became defenders of red skin Indians and super blond scientists, battling Brazilian policemen and farmers drawn as if they were Mexican bandits, with a thick mustache and prominent belly.

Then in the nineties, the strategy changed. They stopped talking, though they didn't stop preparing units of American army specialized in jungle warfare. They chose then to prepare new attacks sending first battalions formed by thousands of NGOs with scientists, missionaries and college students committed to transform Brazilian Indian tribes into independent nations, an initiative that's in full swing today and soon will result in the recognition of fake Indian reservations as "liberated" countries.

We should prepare ourselves for a new phase, stimulated by the absence of Marina Silva, a fierce rival of the forest's internationalization. Allied to the Brazilian fifth-column made up of naive people and scoundrels, they seem to be making a comeback while attempting to ward off the Brazilian government of the matter.

Was it mere coincidence that the United States has already reestablished the US Navy's Fourth Fleet, designed to patrol the South Atlantic, bringing together even aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines?

On our side, although we do our best, little apparently has been done. Not long ago a committee of the National Army colonels, led by two generals, spent months in Vietnam, trying to get lessons on how a poor country can win the best-armed superpower on the planet, while waging a war inside the jungle.

Starting with general Andrada Serpa, and going through former Minister Zenildo Lucena, from generals Lessa, Santa Rosa and Claudio Figueiredo, to General Augusto Heleno and Colonel Gelio Fregapani now, the philosophy has been consistent.

Our warriors become guerrillas. They may not resist for fifteen minutes a conventional conflict, with all the electronic paraphernalia of the enemy concentrated in the cities, but they will be able to repeat the saying of the respectable General Giap: "They may get in, but they will get out, only defeated."

In short, anything can happen in 2012 and we must be prepared for that. Certainly not following the puerile suggestion of a former environment minister, Carlos Minc, who wanted to turn soldiers into gamekeepers and forest guards.

The Amazon peoples rejected, in the seventies, collaborating with the guerrillas in Xambioá, but this time in unison, they will form the choir that can provide a basis for military action nationwide.

For those who think these comments are paranoid fantasies, it is good to remind: for much less the US turned Afghanistan and Iraq in a battlefield, from where, incidentally, they are leaving defeated, despite facing the desert and not the jungle, which is a thousand times more complicated...

author is delusional
written by illiterate, January 23, 2012
I was almost expecting he would mention american geography books with maps showing the amazon as american territory, a popular hoax a while back

It's so delusionary that even the author makes a remark at the end of the article stating that he is not paranoid.. that was the fun part..

To me this really looks like a 5 year old fantasy story.. he even created a heroin, marina silva, the only person who could fight batman, superwoman, and other "cretins" as he says - see how he use "cretins" to describe something that only exists in comics.

Last, some notes:

- Why would a brazilian be the only one who can defend the amazon? Isn't this arrogant, since the amazon doesn't belong to brazil in its entirety.. did the author asked other amazon countries what they think?

- why exactly would the US and europeans want the forest... if they conquered the amazon what would they do with it? Logging? isn't it much cheaper to buy timber? what's so economically valuable there, and if ther is, why france didn't do anything in french guyana?

- the amazon is not the only forest in the world, if the us and europeans wanted forests they would certainly start by conquering smaller ones..

Of course you have "personal friends" that are doing missionary work in the Amazon. I love those people that enjoys to claim that they have those "friends". Anyway, reading comments from the usual trolls of bashing other nations rather than concentrating on their own nation's problem (what's getting worse by the day) I'm not suprised with their conclusion that it's a "ridiculous/delusional bla bla story. Cass Sunstein and his Green fascist A-Team love their trolls/foot soldiers cybering wild on the net.

Brazil should help Iran ASAP
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, January 24, 2012

Ricardo: Brazil should help Iran ASAP to avoid another war in the Middle East.

This gives Brazil an opportunity to buy Iranian oil and sell it in the open market.

At the same time this also give Brazilian banks an opportunity to make money on this extra business related to Iran.

It does not matter what old Europe, and old USA want to impose on countries around the world - because at the end of the day these countries economies are imploding and become obsolete. They represent the past and not the future.

Part 1 of 2

Ricardo: Your screen name gives away the USA strategy and its desperate attempt of the USA to project the illusion of military power to the rest of the world.

Let me see, when was the last time that we had a world superpower that depended on financing from other countries to keep itself barely financially afloat?

Without the charity of various countries from around the world including Japan, Brazil and China – the USA economic system would implode into a black hole.

What China has been doing to the United States for many years can't be considered an investment in US securities – it's more like charity since these supposed investments are becoming worthless by the day.

The Chinese have been accumulating trillions of US dollars (confetti) that are losing its real value by the second.

In January 2004 I posted this information on the Elite Trader Economics forum regarding Emmanuel Todd's book: “After the Empire - The Breakdown of the American Order”

July 26, 2003

The Conceited Empire

A historian credited with predicting the downfall of the Soviet Union in the 1970s now says that the US has been on its way out for the last decade

The power and influence of the United States is being overestimated, claims French historian and demographer Emmanuel Todd. "There will be no American Empire." "The world is too large and dynamic to be controlled by one power." According to Todd, whose 1976 book predicted the fall of the Soviet Union, there is no question: the decline of America the Superpower has already begun.

Emmanuel Todd compares the US to 16th century Spain, arguing that US economic power is being undermined by the decline of its industrial base and its increased dependence on other countries to feed its consumption. The power and influence of the United States is being overestimated, claims French historian and demographer Emmanuel Todd. "There will be no American Empire." "The world is too large and dynamic to be controlled by one power." According to Todd, whose 1976 book predicted the fall of the Soviet Union, there is no question: the decline of America the Superpower has already begun.

Mr. Todd, wrote that America is economically, militarily, and ideologically too weak to actually control the world. The US is still the most powerful nation in the world today, but there are many indicators that they are about to relinquish their position as solitary superpower. He said: “In my 1976 book, La chute finale (Before the Fall: The End of Soviet Domination), I based my prediction of the fall of the Soviet Union on the relevant indicators of the time. An analysis of current demographic, cultural, military, economic, and ideological factors leads me to conclude that the remaining pole of the former bipolar world order will not remain alone in its position. The world has become too large and complex to accept the predominance of one power. There will not be an American Empire.

The American hegemony from the end of WW II into the late 1980s in military, economic, and ideological terms definitely had imperial qualities. In 1945 fully half the manufactured goods in the world originated in the US. And although there was a Communist-bloc in Eurasia, East Germany, and North Korea, the strong American military, the navy and air force, exercised strategic control over the rest of the globe, with the support and understanding of many allies, whose common goal was the fight against communism. Although communism had some dispersed support among intellectuals, workers, and peasant groups, the power and influence of the US was by and large with the agreement of a majority throughout the world. It was a benevolent empire. The Marshall Plan was an exemplary political and economic strategy. America was, for decades, a 'good' superpower.

It has, above all, become a weak one. The US no longer has the might to control the large strategic players, primarily Germany and Japan. Their industrial capacity is clearly smaller than that of Europe and approximately equal to that of Japan. With twice the population, this is no great accomplishment.

Their military potential is nevertheless still the largest by far, but is declining and consistently over estimated. The use of military bases is dependent on the good will of their allies, many of which are not as willing as before. The theatrical military activism against inconsequential rogue states that we are currently witnessing plays out against this backdrop. It is a sign of weakness, not of strength. But weakness makes for unpredictability. The US is about to become a problem for the world, where we have previously been accustomed to seeing a solution in them.

Reply to USA f-35 A stealth and f-37 A stealth
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, January 25, 2012

Part 2 of 2

Ricardo: Quoting from another interview with Emmanuel Todd regarding his book - This interview was the subject of some discussion at Metafilter.com.

In a Nutshell:

The US leadership doesn't know anymore where to turn. They know that they are monetarily dependent on the rest of the world, and they are afraid of becoming inconsequential. There are no more Nazis and Communists. While a demographic, democratic, and politically stabilizing world recognizes that it is increasingly less dependent on the US, America is discovering that it is increasingly dependent on the rest of the world. That is the reason for the rush into military action and adventures. It is classic.

Classic?

The only remaining superiority is military. This is classic for a crumbling system. The final glory is militarism. The fall of the Soviet Union took place in an identical context. Their economy was in decline, and their leadership grew fearful. Their military apparatus gained in size and stature and the Russians embarked on adventures to forget their economic shortcomings. The parallels in the US are obvious. The process has significantly accelerated in the past few months.

...One of the working propositions of my book, After the Empire is that the concept of military control of the globe no longer makes any sense. In relation to the military, there will be a balance of power in the future. There is still a nuclear balance of power between the US and Russia. The notion that sections of the globe can be controlled through military might is passé, because it is unrealistic. You can destroy regimes and bomb their infrastructure, as the Americans have done in Afghanistan, but the populations -- including those in the developing world -- have become educated and literate enough to eliminate any possibility of re-colonization. The only power that ultimately counts today is economic power.

...Most apparent is how clumsy the US has been to date, and how far they have moved away from any notion of universality. They don't see the world as it really is anymore. They are failing in any balanced and fair approach to their allies. All of this reminds me of Germany under Wilhelm II. The US is losing allies steadily. One gets the impression that an office somewhere in Washington has been tasked with the duty to daily prepare a scheme to develop new enemies for the US.

Ricardo: Americans still are in denial, but the best days of the United States has been long gone. The United States has reached the fast declining years of any old empire.

Here is an example that places the spotlight at the core of Americas decline, but the reality is this simple example we can see all around the United States – an economic and financial system imploding and being kept barely alive by massive US government intervention, and money borrowed from countries such as China, Japan and Brazil.

Business Insider – January 22, 2012
This Article Explains Why Apple Makes iPhones In China And Why The US Is Screwed



The manufacturing processes of Apple and other electronics companies have come into sharp focus of late, with the revelation of more details about what life is like for the Chinese workers who make the world's gadgets.

When one reads about these working conditions--12-16 hour shifts, pay of ~$1 per hour or less, dormitories with 15 beds in 12x12 rooms--the obvious assumption is that it's all about money:

Greedy manufacturers want to make bigger profits, so they make their products in places with labor practices that would be illegal in America.

And money is certainly part of it.

But an amazing new article by Charles Duhigg and Keith Bradsher of the New York Times reveals that there's a lot more to it than that.

The article illustrates just how big a challenge the U.S. faces in trying stop the "hollowing out" process that has sent middle-class jobs overseas--and, with it, the extreme inequality that has developed in recent years.

The reason Apple makes iPhones and iPads in China, the article shows, is not just about money.

Manufacturing an iPhone in the United States would cost about $65 more than manufacturing it in China, where it costs an estimated $8. This additional $65 would dent the profit Apple makes on each iPhone, but it wouldn't eliminate it. (The iPhone average selling price is about $600, and Apple's average gross margin is about 40%. So Apple's gross profit on each iPhone is probably in the neighborhood of $250.)

The real reasons Apple makes iPhones in China, therefore, are as follows:

Most of the components of iPhones and iPads--the supply chain--are now manufactured in China, so assembling the phones half-a-world away would create huge logistical challenges. It would also reduce flexibility--the ability to switch easily from one component supplier or manufacturer to another.

China's factories are now far bigger and more nimble than those in the United States. They can hire (and fire) tens of thousands of workers practically overnight. Because so many of the workers live on-site, they can also press them into service at a moment's notice. And they can change production practices and speeds extremely rapidly.

China now has a far bigger supply of appropriately-qualified engineers than the U.S. does--folks with the technical skills necessary to build complex gadgets but not so credentialed that they cost too much.

And, lastly, China's workforce is much hungrier and more frugal than many of their counterparts in the United States.

Americans still are in denial, but the party has been over for many years for this collapsing empire
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, January 26, 2012

Part 2 of 2

Business Insider – January 22, 2012
This Article Explains Why Apple Makes iPhones In China And Why The US Is Screwed


On this last point, Duhigg and Bradsher tell the story of Eric Saragoza, an engineer who began working in an Apple factory near Sacramento in 1995. The plant made Macs, and for a few years, Saragoza did well, earning $50,000 a year, getting married and having kids, and buying a house with a pool.

Your iPhone is built, in part, by 13-year olds working for ~70 cents an hour. But that's not the only reason Apple builds them in Shenzhen. Soon, however, Apple started shipping jobs overseas, because the costs of manufacturing in Asia were so much lower. Importantly, these reduced costs weren't just about wages--they were about being closer to the supply chain and the willingness of the workforce to put in over-time.
Saragoza was soon asked to work 12-hour days and come in on Saturdays. But, understandably, he wanted to watch his kids play soccer on the weekends.

Saragoza's salary was too high for him to take an unskilled job. And he didn't have the experience and credentials necessary to move into senior management. In 2002, his job was eliminated. Apple, meanwhile, turned the Elk Grove plant into an AppleCare facility, with call-center employees making $12 an hour.

Recently, desperate for work, Saragoza took a job at an electronics temp firm. Assigned to the AppleCare plant, he was paid $10 an hour to test repaired iPads before they were sent back to customers. That job paid so little (and was presumably so depressing) that the now 48-year-old Saragoza quit and is looking for work again.

Meanwhile, in Shenzhen, a young project manager named Lina Lin coordinates the manufacture of Apple accessories for a company in the Apple ecosystem. She makes a bit less than Saragoza made a decade ago as an Apple engineer. She lives in an 1,100-square foot apartment with her husband, their in-laws, and their son. They save a quarter of their salaries every month.

There are lots of jobs in Shenzhen, Lin says.

So, yes, money is part of why all of our gadgets are built in China. But what started a couple of decades ago as a reach for efficiency has now resulted in the entire electronics-manufacturing ecosystem being lifted up and transferred to China.

Apple doesn't build iPhones in the United States, in other words, because there is no longer an ecosystem here to support that manufacturing. There's no supply chain, there aren't enough super-low-cost workers, and there are not enough mid-level engineers. And many Americans looking for work are still hoping for a return to jobs, salaries, and lifestyles that have simply disappeared.

This is a complex problem, and there's no easy solution. But it's a problem this country is going to have to fix. Or the massive middle class that once drove America's prosperity will just cease to exist.

Emmanuel Todd wrote about the collapse of the Soviet Union 15 years before the final collapse occurred. In 2003 he predicted the coming collapse of the United States empire, and so far everything it seems to me is going just as he predicted.

By the way, when the final collapse materialize the first thing to go is the military power. When the rest of the world stop accepting worthless US dollars, then the US military will crumble almost overnight.

Remember how powerful the Soviet Union military power used to be during the cold war?

SouthAmerica: Since January 1, 2012 the United States has become officially a "police state."

This event will have a massive financial and economic impact in the US economy in 2012 and future years.

That's the end of the United States as the country that people knew for over 200 years.

Similar to the collapse of the Soviet Union and its transition to the new Russia that we have today - The old United States will go through a period of transition to its new form as a new country. but I have no idea how this new country works since it seems to me that the US Constitution and Bill of Rights is being voided almost overnight - Under the new system I have no idea what kind of laws apply to the United States and its citizens.

To take such a drastic action against the US Constitution and Bill of Rights - the only way I can understand these actions is because the US government is reacting and is in total Panic about the implosion that is underway of the US financial and economic system.

Greece Economic Meltdown
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, January 29, 2012

Ricardo: Regarding the Greece's economic meltdown, I posted the following on the ET economics forum:

Greece Economic Meltdown
http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/...genumber=2

...January 28, 2012

SouthAmerica: We have been discussing the coming Greece's debt default for more than 2 years, and I have no idea why the Greeks have not defaulted as yet on their Greek government debt?

The Greek economy has been devastated, and it's imploding by the minute into a black hole, and Greece's government still does not have the balls to give the final check mate against the bankers.

Today when I saw the big headline on the front page of the Financial Times “Call for EU to control Greek budget” after reading the article I realized that the banksters want to enslave the Greek people and destroy their country.

Under the latest German plan: Germany is proposing that Greece temporarily cede sovereignty over tax and spending decisions to a powerful Eurozone budget commissioner before it can secure any further bailouts.

The article also said: “Athens would also have to adopt a law permanently committing state revenues to debt service “first and foremost.”

The banksters have reached their maximum level of arrogance and and complete lack of any common sense.

The time for the Greek government to default on its debt is ASAP (yesterday) and since the default is becoming a reality then Greece should default on 100 percent of the Greek government debt – the consequences for the Greek people of a 50 percent or 100 percent debt default it would be the same.

It makes more sense for the Greek government to default on 100 percent of its debt, and try to restart their economic and financial system the best way they can from that point.

And Greece should continue to be a member of the euro system after the 100 percent debt default, since that would be a better strategy than going back to the old Greek currency.

If I was in charge of the Greek government I would go one step further and I would get in contact with the government of Iran and say to them that Greece would not honor the sanctions that old Europe has adopted against Iran. And Greece it would be open for doing business with Iran regarding just about anything.

The complete crash of the Greek economy is already a reality, and this new strategy it would be the first step in trying to move the Greek economy forward to the world of the 21st century.

The time to play games is over, and it is time for the Greek government to give a final check mate against the banksters, and move the Greek economy into the future.

If the Greek government don't take immediate actions as I described above, then the Greek people deserve to become just a slave of the banksters and of the eurozone masters who don't give a s**t about anything that is going on in Greece.

The sanctions against Iranian oil shows that the eurozone masters are a bunch of fools and nothing else, and they are disregarding the obvious massive negative consequences to the crumbling economies of various countries in the eurozone.

The US dollar and the biggest default in history
http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/...ost2729725

...February 12, 2010

SouthAmerica: As the US dollar moves right on schedule to achieve the biggest default in world history…In the meantime the world financial markets waste time with irrelevant and immaterial events.

Maybe Greece is just the canary in the coalmine, and the United States economy and the US dollar are the main event.

Brazil and Syria-Lebanon connection

Ricardo: Here is what I posted today in a few web sites in the internet:

Brazil and Syria/Lebanon connection
http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/...did=235793

...February 1, 2012

SouthAmerica:
It is time for Brazil to take side on this new crisis regarding Syria.

Brazil should back up Russia and China in an effort to stop the UN from using its rogue army (NATO) from destroying the entire infrastructure of Syria as they have done in Libya.

Brazil has a dog in this fight, since over 10 million people who live in Brazil are descendents from Syrian/Lebanese people.

There's a strong human connection between Brazil and Syria.

US and Russia clash in UN Security Council over Syria – January 31, 2012
http://youtu.be/bSuypCIfcDE


*****


Quoting from my article published at Brazzil magazine:

“US and EU Are the Past. The Future is Brazil and BRIC” - May 9, 2005
http://brazilandsyria-lebanonc...ction.html

“...The Summit has many objectives. The most important is a reciprocal re-discovery of two regions with historical affinities and a vast but yet unfulfilled potential in the field of bilateral relations.

Looking to the past, the contact points between the two worlds date back to the Arab presence in the Iberian Peninsula. Human ties between both regions have grown more intense over the past century through migration flows toward South America, which have made a valuable contribution to the social and cultural development of an important number of countries in the region. Today there are over 10 million people of Arab descent live only in Brazil, not to mention the many South American migrants, particularly Brazilians, that have recently gone the opposite way in search of a new life in the Middle East.

Looking to the future, what we aim at is a partnership between two regions that face similar challenges in the struggle for development. The obvious diversity of their national situations, identities and levels of development does not prevent them from sharing common goals and interests. Countries from both regions share a common vision of peace and economic development with social justice, they base their actions on the respect for international law and multilateralism, they fight for an inclusive, tolerant, multipolar world more conducive to development.”

written by Ricardo C. Amaral, February 02, 2012

Ricardo: You keep harping on the same issue regarding the US military, and you can't grasp even to try to save your life this simple fact:

I guess you missed this part of Emmanuel Todd's analysis:

"The only remaining superiority is military. This is classic for a crumbling system. The final glory is militarism. The fall of the Soviet Union took place in an identical context. Their economy was in decline, and their leadership grew fearful. Their military apparatus gained in size and stature and the Russians embarked on adventures to forget their economic shortcomings. The parallels in the US are obvious. The process has significantly accelerated in the past few months."

Emmanuel Todd wrote about the collapse of the Soviet Union 15 years before the final collapse occurred. In 2003 he predicted the coming collapse of the United States empire, and so far everything it seems to me is going just as he predicted.

By the way, when the final collapse materialize the first thing to go is the military power. When the rest of the world stop accepting worthless US dollars, then the US military will crumble almost overnight.

Remember how powerful the Soviet Union military power used to be during the cold war?

The Soviet Union also had the military superiority type of delusion.

And just look what happened to the Soviet Union in the blink of an eye ...as soon as the financial collapse became a reality for the Soviet Union, their military had a major meltdown resulting in obsolescence almost overnight.

Reality check: Collapsing Soviet Union system = collapsing United States economic and financial system.

Everywhere you look at the US economic and financial system is imploding. And the US foreign policy is not far behind it is pathetic and a joke and the only thing that anyone with a minimum of common sense can do today is laugh about on how the entire system is spinning completely out of control.

Compared with what is happening today around the globe regarding the United States leadership and actual results, the achievements of General George Armstrong Custer look like the American symbol for what Americans consider an outstanding job....

Hah, hah, hah...

Here is a short list of the best of what Americans can achieve today:

1) Iraq = a civil war spinning out control.

2) Afghanistan = after 10 years of American intervention the place is a major mess and also spinning out control.

3) Pakistan = a joke of American intervention and diplomacy and the place is also spinning completely out of control.

4) Libya = After US through NATO destroyed the entire infrastructure of that country - the country is in the middle of a nasty civil war which is spinning out of control by the minute.

5) Egypt = American intervention on the internal affairs of countries such as Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, and so on...all these countries are a massive mess like never before.

6) Syria = The United States want to turn Syria into a wasteland in the same way they turned Libya into chaos.

7) Iran = the United States has been tormenting the Iranians and interfering on the internal affairs of their country since the CIA overthrew the legitimate democratic elected government of Iran in 1952 to install on its place a nasty dictator - a puppet of the United States which was a disaster for the Iranian people.

In a nutshell:

The only thing that the United States has been good at since the early 1960's is in creating chaos around the world.

I could list many other American fiascos around the world in the last 50 years including the US military defeat in Vietnam.

These are facts that the entire world have been watching over the years resulting in United States declined in prestige and influence around the world.

Basically today, you have to be a complete idiot to follow American leadership to just about anything.

http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/...enumber=63

...February 4, 2012

SouthAmerica: Here is another episode of the hit TV comedy series “Israel and the USA are going to attack Iran...”

On this episode Israel and the “Jewish Lobby” try very hard to adjust its strategy on how to manipulate public opinion regarding the scare tactic “Israel is going to attack Iran...”

Israel realized that its on going threat for the last seven years that - “Israel is going to attack Iran...because Iran will have nuclear weapons in about 6 months” - is so discredited at this point that even the oil traders don't buy this bulls**t anymore.

The only people who get scared and still believe on this Israeli threat is the people who have “Alzheimer's disease“, because they think this is a new threat, and not a threat that has been repeated a zillion times in the last 7 years....

Charlie Rose interview with Susan Rice United Nations US ambassador – February 9, 2012

Susan Rice comes across on her interviews as a very naïve woman and an amateur in many ways. Extremely naïve and her agenda is in La La Land.....

By the way, Hillary Clinton is not far behind Susan Rice and her very naïve and amateur comments about the countries of the Middle East, China and Russia.

I would suggest that both women should take a deep breath, and they should ask their doctors to give them a prescription of Prozac, and Valium to calm them down.

Here is a reality check and a lesson about what is going on in the real world for both girls:

The imploding value of the US dollar and how your dollar got to be worth just 3.8 cents.
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, February 12, 2012

Ricardo: I posted the following at the Elite Trader economics forum today:

February 11, 2012

SouthAmerica: The imploding value of the US dollar and how your dollar got to be worth just 3.8 cents.

Basically, the international monetary system based on the US dollar has reached the end of the line, the US dollar is becoming worthless very fast, and the entire system is collapsing and going bankrupt.

That shows how desperate the US government has become because of its collapsing currency.

Keiser Report: FBI vs Gold Standard 'Extremists' – February 11, 2012

In the second half of the show, Max talks to Francine McKenna of read TheAuditors.com about the crimes and illegitimate activity of the MF Global collapse.

Note: If the US government does not want to go back to the “Gold Standard” then here is another option that is available today – The US can use this as its new currency and most Americans would not even notice the difference between these 2 currencies:
