Someone is a little behind…


They call themselves analysts, and the Beeb publishes this as if it were news. As in, NEW news:

US economic, military and political dominance is likely to decline over the next two decades, according to a new US intelligence report on global trends.

The National Intelligence Council (NIC) predicts China, India and Russia will increasingly challenge US influence.

It also says the dollar may no longer be the world’s major currency, and food and water shortages will fuel conflict.

However, the report concedes that these outcomes are not inevitable and will depend on the actions of world leaders.

Alas, this is all rather OLD news, this thing about a multipolar world. Chavecito’s been talking about it for HOW many years now? But of course, when HE talks about it, he’s a populist dictator crackpot. When some US “council” says it’s gonna happen, it’s suddenly serious.

And of course, they make out like it’s gonna be a BAD thing. Funny, but the rest of the multipolar world doesn’t seem to think so.

    Bina, so you have new readers in Bogota, Capetown, Puerto Rico, an avid new reader somewhere in Switzerland, a new one in Australia too (maybe Cooktown or Cairns) …

  2. Don’t forget New Zealand! And one in Central America–Nicaragua, maybe?

    Yeah, those are definitely Wellington and Managua respectively 🙂
    Btw, Baduel is not a candidate in the local elections, right? (I am curious if the Chavistas’ prediction about Rosales fleeing turns out to be true)

  4. He was a pre-candidate, but seems to have dropped off the radar screen–probably saw his low popularity numbers and deked out of the room. But on the other hand, maybe his ego’s big enough to try for it anyway…
    And hey! If things go badly enough for the oppos by the end of the day, maybe Manuelito Rosalito will have some company on that flight to Panama. Then the two of them can stink up the entire Canal Zone together. Won’t that be a gas?
