Did anyone else see the interview with Bush during the olympic reporting in which Georgey W. said he stopped Putin in the stands at the olympic games to talk to him about how "displeased" the U.S. was with him.

...nice...

I must say it is kind of cool to see the US president sitting in the stands at Olympic events. Makes it harder for him to screw up the world if he is too busy watching the little gymnasts jumping around.

We are going to war with China at some point whether we like it or no. I'd sure like to have Russia on our side for that one.

I disagree. China can't afford a war with the US any more than we can afford a war with them. They own an insane amount of US dollars. They rely on selling us cheap stuff to support their entire economy. If we piss them off, all they are going to do is sell off a few billion of US currency in the currency markets, push our economy down a little bit, flex their muscles, and go back to status quo. I think you will find that China will become more of a US ally than Russia. Russia is facing serious economic issues and is much more prone to make rash decisions in support of self-preservation at this point.

or.. we could ally with china, and with us on the west and china to the east we could split Russia like Stalin and Hitler split Poland in ww2. you are right about us going to war with china at some point in the near future.

Satansrapture.com was wrong on the 8/8/08 prediction for WW3...everyone knows its gonna start on 9/9/09, upside down 666. If not then we'll try for 6/6/66 or 9/1/11.

I'm not so sure about this "China is our friend" thing.

True, right now they rely on the us to buy the stuff they make, but that may not be true forever. They have been buying up much of our manufacturing capability, and have significant natural resources. That gives them the capability to generate great wealth. And with a population of about 4 times the USA they have a huge internal market that has been largely untapped. If they can get their own standard of living up they may not need us to sell stuff to. Then with control of much of the worlds manufacturing capability they could start dumping those vast holdings of US dollars into the market driving down the value, and then flip the switch and turn that manufacturing might into a huge war machine. We could be caught so flat footed that it might take years to catch up, by that time they might be in control of even more resources, possibly much of the worlds oil reserves.

Did you know that 666 was actually a mistranslation and it's 616. Just wondering.


All I know about WW3 is once the crap hits the fan, it's gonna be over in about 15 min. Then there will be nucular zombies to worry about. I don't want to see Nucular zombies in my life time........
