There are projects, big projects, and empire-level projects. We have a global empire in the making, and this is one of most significant warning signs ever in human history. Ever heard of the Silk Road? Well, the remake will eclipse the original version this time.
Everybody knows about the Flying Tigers, the American air fighters group in China in WWII. Aside from the movies and all the narrative stuff, that was about a group of American personnel that acted in China, fighting side by side with Chinese against the forces of the Japanese Empire. They learned a lot from the experience made in Spain, where they fought against Italian and German pilots in the civil war that precedeed WWII.
But the Chinese were actively looking for warplanes in the ’30s, knowing for sure that war against Japan will come. So they looked for any option available, including purchasing Italian warplanes. So there was a time when the Kingdom of Italy supplied with machines and personnel and only the political decision to favor the Japanese side. In my country, referring to that years, there was somewhat a technological clash between those who favored a more traditional kind of airplane, biplanes, and those who were looking forward to the monoplane models inspired by American manifacturers.
When it comes to discuss about the global economy crisis the question about finance always comes up: how can a nation put a stop to the economic power of a multinational financial entity?
This is a peculiar type of asymmetrical warfare; a state, no matter how big it is, can’t compete against a multinational subject of the financial battlefield. If a nation tries to enforce a harder regulation system on its markets finance cartels simply withdraw their money from that markets and the nation’s economy sink like a paper-made Titanic. If the market regulation are too lose, just like today, the finance operators simply do what they want and the nations’s economy is always at stake.
When it comes to politics or warfare the name of chinese general Sun-Tzu always rise up, a sort of global cultural reference for developing a winning strategy. As it happen Sun-Tzu’s masterpiece, “The Art of War”, is a worldwide success, translated in more and more languages every year.
A pity that so few really read the book and fewer more understand it.
All right, we’re on the eve of a bombing campaign against Syria. Everybody knows it and all of us already got the commemorative T-shirt (My brother bombed Syria and all I’ve got it’s this lousy T-shirt?). What we have to remember is that they’re waiting for an opportunity to strike back.
Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen, are you ready for another dirty little war? A new conflict will start before the end of this week so be sure to have enough popcorn and soda for the non-stop flow of TV shows about that. Now, it’s time to get some information.
OK, let’s play a war scenario. A little one, just for the “fun” of it. Let’s say that the DPRK is so crazy to actually fire a couple of medium-range missiles. One straight to Japan, one down south to their separate brothers. In this game we can assume that both missiles will hit without malfunctions, both with conventional warheads.
