Thought for the Day

The G20 has come to Australia and gone again. I saw nice huggy pictures of Koala bears looking bored with life and various people enjoying their photo opportunities.

Putin arrived with the Russian fleet out in the Pacific off the coast. I saw a psychological analysis of the handshake between Putin and Obama where Putin's hand was very strongly on top of Obama's hand rather than side by side as normal. Was Obama "getting the message"?

Probably, since he gave a speech castigating Putin for his part in doing nasty things to Ukraine, in spite of Russia supplying $25 billion this year and gas worth $5 billion for which they have not been paid. And they are still supplying gas.

America supplied "regime change", with Victoria Nuland leading the charge of neo-nazis organised by the CIA to oust a democratically elected leader on the 22nd of February 2014. Since then the country has "progressed" in much the same way as other lucky countries getting the American regime change. Think Libya and Iraq.

I am reminded that Napoleon was quoted as saying, “China is a sleeping giant. Let her sleep, for when she wakes she will move the world.”

Now China is awake and aware of the ways of the Western world. China is pursuing commercial relationships with all countries. Remember that we were one of the first to sign up a free trade agreement with China. If the whole world can learn a lesson here we will all be much wealthier than if we waste our time fighting for control over our neighbours.

I wonder how the Agreement with China compares with the upcoming Free Trade Agreement with America. It would be interesting to get a comparison.

Meanwhile, the world continues down the path selected by the people in charge. I hope you are ready for the result.
