Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Words simply fail me. Who exactly do we need first use against?"

I can't believe I've got to say this to a bunch of economic wonks like the ET crowd; ah well.

According to your own reporting, the Ponzi world economy is tanking, NO?  The ultrawealthy read ET too ... they aren't all Paris Hiltons.  The ultrawealthy will STAY ultrawealthy ... NO MATTER WHAT!  What's the best way for this to occur? (Do I really have to type this?)

First, fear.  Scare the crap out of people ... ordinary people ... so they don't see who is screwing them and how bad.  If that doesn't work, Plan B ...

Second, pick a country, any country.  Bomb the crap out of them.  Now THAT'S a distraction that always works.

Who's the enemy?  Doesn't matter!  

The REAL enemy?  Why, you and me, of course.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
