The media is foaming at the mouth at the prospect of a war between North Korea and the USA.
Is a nuclear war likely between North Korea and the USA? Are Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un likely to go to war?
We say no.
It’s all theatre. Or at least, it’s all theatre now North Korea’s powerful neighbour China have clarified their position thus:
China’s state-run Global Times said: “If the US and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so.”
The main thing about living anywhere in the world is your attitude.
How easily you can adapt to living outside your “comfort” zone, to how willing you are in accepting a new reality.
There are advantages and disadvantages to living anywhere. I think this goes without saying, but I obviously have to say it to put things into perspective for some.
I have often said that you cannot compare Russia to the established Western world. One has emerged from 75 years of Communism, not to mention a whole host of tragic historical and cultural norms, to a meshing of free market policies and a new world order in the 21st century.… Click here to continue reading this article
You are right to think that the US is in for a bumpy ride, it is, and for the reasons I and others have been going on about for more than a decade.
The core issue that connects all the significant actors, in different ways, is energy – its supply and its cost.
Right now US tight hydrocarbon firms are pumping for all their worth in order to generate cash flow to enable them to pay their loans. They are stuck. They simply can not reduce output by one iota, they have no choice but to pump and pump no matter how much money they lose.… Click here to continue reading this article
A recent story headlined on CNN.com asked the question, “Why is Russia sending bombers close to U.S. airspace?”, after several Russian military aircraft flew near U.S. airspace along the coasts of Alaska and California. Perhaps a better question would be why has Russia waited so long to do so?
The story includes a smattering of ominous, juvenile-level rhetoric from Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Republican Congressman from Illinois, who describes what Russia is doing as an “act of aggression.” He compares Vladimir Putin to a diminutive school bully who acts overly tough, no doubt an allusion to Russia’s reduced influence in world affairs since the end of the Cold War.… Click here to continue reading this article
The Russian President Vladimir Putin has implemented a cunning plan in relation to Europe and their sanctions on Russia.
I call it “Right back at ya – watch this!”
“Russia is finished! Sanctions from Obama and the European Union will finish the Russian economy and now it will become the poorest country in the world! Russia can not do anything to answer the West! They will all die”
So love to scream those in the west who do not know about Putin’s cunning plan and underestimate Russia.
What is the real story with Ukraine, Russia, the EU and America?
Anyone who reads Western media might feel that they have a handle on what is going on in Ukraine.
You have been misled by the Western media to hold one, and only one view: There is ‘terrorism’ perpetrated by ‘pro-Russian separatists’, armed by Russia, and Vladimir Putin is the main culprit. Especially with flight MH17.
End of story. Anyone who believes differently is a Russian propaganda merchant.
If you are a UK online seller and want to sell into the USA, this article is for you. Selling into the US from the UK is full of pitfalls.
We all love selling online, don’t we? Especially in the UK.
America and Canada are potentially important markets to look at, as there are over 330 million people there. So we want to sell online to Americans, right? (And for simplistic purposes, we include Canada in the term ‘America’ and ‘Americans’ from here on in.)
