#1 China doesn't suffer from a large surplus in the lawyer caste. Nor does the lawyer caste in China believe it should be running everything in the culture.

#3 I believe africa will profit the most having all the raw resources to supply chinas growth which the US buys. Africa might be at the bottom continent of power but it would also benfit if the whole chain of consumerism collapsed, because of the cheap labour.

#5 "It means that whoever wins the 2012 presidential election will have the dubious honor of presiding over the fall of the United States."

It means the next leader must have the good sense to say no to our economic destruction by a hostile, predatory mercantile power. The US has already shipped 1/2 of our industrial base to China in less than 20 years and working furiously on sending the rest. If you can't control the borders, people and goods, then you don't have a country. You are a colony.

#8 IPS is a far-left think tank affiliated with the Nation magazine. Wikipedia has a few interesting tidbits on this organization:

Harvey Klehr, professor of politics and history at Emory University, in his 1988 book Far Left of Center: The American Radical Left Today said that IPS "serves as an intellectual nerve center for the radical movement, ranging from nuclear and anti-intervention issues to support for Marxist insurgencies."[19] Joshua Muravchik has also accused the institute of communophilism.[20] while Emerson Vermatt has accused the think-tank of "its bitter opposition to the intelligence community, notably the CIA."[3] Furthermore, it has been accused by the FBI as a "think factory" that helps to "train extremists who incite violence in U.S. cities, and whose educational research serves as a cover for intrigue, an political agitation."[21]

In 1974, the Institute created an 'Organizing Committee for the Fifth Estate' as part of its "Center for National Security Studies" which published (and still publishes) the magazine CounterSpy. CounterSpy has in turn been the subject of scrutiny by officials and intelligence agencies, who claim that the magazine's "driving force"[22] was ex-CIA agent and alleged Cuban/KGB agent[23][24][25] Philip Agee and accused by US President George H.W. Bush[26] and others[27] of leading to the murder of the then CIA Station Chief in Greece, Richard S. Welch.

In his book The KGB and Soviet disinformation: an insider's view Ladislav Bittman, a former StB agent who worked in misinformation operations such as the IPS, covered the IPS's role in the Soviet intelligence network. It should be noted that not all of IPS fellows were on intelligence agency payroll and not every publication originated from the KGB.[28][29] Brian Crozier, director of the London-based Institute for the Study of Conflict, described IPS as the "perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities which would be resisted if they were to originate openly from the KGB."[30]

#9 In 2001, I was banned from "littlegreenfootballs," after I posted that "nuclear arms are cost-effective" and that Pashtun-Afghanistan should be "made to look like the Moon." And that Pakistan's Pashtuns would make any intervention "unwinnable," because of the advantage of "harborage." The Pentagon's youtube channel includes a West Point speech by Robt Gates in which he says that any future US President who ordered a "large land army" into Asia, "should have his head examined." As I write, the "pakistandefence" forum includes a thread where US "allies" advocate massive use of snipers against US troops in Afghanistan, as a means to end US theater activity.

How can the insanity of deranged triumphalism ("mission accomplished") be capped, and we at long last turn Kandaher into dust? Does "values" sewage still pollute minds? Again: nuclear arms are cost effective.
