    Hi Christopher

    It was nice to see you when I opened my Mailbox. Where have you been?

    I enjoyed the cartoon but I think a whole bunch of people and countries will be watching this trial and whatever comes out of it. There is much behind the scenes; in fact I firmly believe that there is still hundred times more behind the scenes than the little tip of the iceberg that has been revealed in the Media.

    Hello Ike,
    I’ve been primarily in the Giant Trail Mix Bowl by the Sea otherwise known as San Francisco. How have you been?

    Hi Christopher

    Thanks for popping in again; there is a lot that I would like to discuss with you.

    Firstly however, I am fine and enjoying myself. I left MyT entirely and left the clever guys at Bearsy’s to their games as well; thus I am back in commenting over quite a wide range in American Blogs and the rest of my time is used for my final research on My Genesis but I have changed course in Blogging. I do some satire again and test perceptions in my serious stuff.

    Assange is something that is on my list but for entirely my own views. What he revealed doesn’t really interest me. My interest in Assange is the fact that he managed to get his hands in sensitive American Military stuff and just proceeded to publish it. So, is the Internet safe or is it not?

    I have always right from the first day after 911 maintained that the operation, logistics, planning and execution of the dastardly deed was all done on the Internet right under Clinton’s eyes [well, he of course, could not look after everything while he was chasing shirt, could he?

    Secondly, I recollect the Internet coming to South Africa in 1990 and the change in the investment marketing that followed immediately; you may recall or not that I spent my entire working career in Pension Funds until I early retired in disgust end of 2000 by which time the industry had gone from a once noble enterprise into total corruption. I believe that the Internet was the tool to this, plus the fact that the Net made it so easy to increase graft and corruption World- wide because of the ease of transferring billions in seconds with no or very little oversight.

    This is something that needs to be said softly but I am dead serious. There is very little, if any, hard assets behind the enormous billions of “money figures” that is daily moving around the Internet. It’s a huge bubble that cannot hope to continue the lie.

    Finally, or pen ultimately, There will be a massive change in the Anglo-Saxon World. England is all but sunk; America is in deep trouble; the EU will drag the rest down. I see China and Russia more than ever as the only two powerhouses able to guide the rest through a total monetary collapse that will make the “recent recession” [pity those who want to believe that it is all over] well to make that look like a stroll in the Park in Spring.

    I will therefore, watch Assange’s trial from my perspectives; and it will be amusing to see who scrambles to hide under the carpets and in the closets.

    There is so much we have to catch op. Feel free to have a look at my Posts. I am out of Muslim Wars and Religion when any argument starts. It may surprise you but I have come to the conclusion that Islam is not the enemy as Americans and the English try to explain. Ordinary old-fashioned [as defined then] but now developed into modern moral decadence is the enemy. But that is another story for an entire book.

    I look forward to hearing from you wherever you deem it appropriate.

    This just came through. I have a comment in there. Haha Hehe!

    Hello Ike,
    I will read your posts over the next few days as I have quite a bit of catching up to do. At the moment I am on holiday after a wretchedly busy term which left me burnt out an exhausted. The up-coming term promises to be easier and more well-balanced with fewer long days.

    Yes, I have been following China closely lately.
    Since moving to San Francisco I have fallen in with the Chinese.
    Nice enough people. I’ve grown in many ways less nervous about China than I was before. While the risk for war is still present, the Chinese are highly nervous about going to war. The one child policy has created a situation where the majority of Chinese families cannot afford to lose a single child and they grow very protective of their children at times even spoiling them so much that they seem to have little contact with the real world. Thus, a war which would result in heavy casualties would have major ramifications in China. Even if China eventually triumphed, it would come at a cost so great that it might take generations to recover. Thus, so long as everyone follows certain rules things should not get too far out of hand. There is also the realisation that China, if it acts too rashly too quickly, will form a united alliance of countries surrounding it from Central Asia to Taiwan. Despite Chinese investment in the region, the Central Asian republics remain loyal to Russia and, if pushed, would side with it. India is becoming more and more entwined with the West and East Asia outside of China. The Japanese, South Koreans, and Taiwanese are all strengthening their relations with that country.

    I concluded long ago that Islam is not out of necessity the enemy. In a way, studying it could be the salvation of Western civilisation. No, I don’t mean adopting Islam — I mean taking an example from how they view their cultures. They fear no shame about their culture and religion. I would never want to be a Muslim, nor do I take a romantic view of their religion of cultures. Still, if we would value our cultures as much as they do theirs we would be in a much better state.

    Hi Christopher

    Take your time reading; my Posts are getting fewer in any event.

    I am pleased to hear all your current sentiments and I think we are in zinc on almost every point except, maybe, that I should underline that I did not refer to China n the sense of war. I see Russia and China forming a “peace block” much stronger than any other country will ever be.

    The people at MyT will be horrified at my next point but I am sure that I am closer to the truth than they are. There is a lot we can learn from Islam and the sooner we start learning the better it will be for us.

    Ah ha, sorry about that…
    As for Russia and China… No, it is doubtful that they will form a bloc.
    Russia is prickly and, with its millennia of invasions and a long period of hostility with China it is unlikely to become too friendly. As the articles have shown, Russia has already grown wary of China. There is also concern about China’s border intentions. There is a segment in China which wishes to extend China’s borders to what they were under the Ch’ing — this would involve taking over not just Taiwan and Mongolia, it would involve taking over a good bit of Russia. The question is how well cooler heads in Peking can keep control over them.

    I need to set something right that was due to me having used the wrong words.

    When I said about Russia and China “forming a block” I was referring to that which is already in existence, to some degree I included the physical “block of land” sitting exactly where they are. I was talking about a block of land mass that exists, not any new political “merging” of interests as the stupid EU catastrophe.

    They are both doing well economically; they both have their own special ways of dealing with dissidents and law [a big problem in the so-called Western Democracies] and both countries are working hard. They ignore the West when the latter cry and scream about human rights and they don’t interfere in the Domestic affairs of other countries.

    Then I have also become an admirer of Putin; as long as he is there they will steam ahead and I don’t see a fast change on that score. And if you compare him with the wimps leading in America and England, hell my young friend, Putin can finish them both off before breakfast.

    Twenty years ago the “World predicted and hoped for” problems about Taiwan. It has worked out rather nicely for both.

    There is much more. I look forward to hearing more from you.
