The discussion on how to respond to the deepening Crash of 2019 is focusing minds. It is recognised that interest rate manipulation and regular quantitative easing will not suffice to bring the global economy back into growth, especially now that international trade is so fractured.

In June this year in Itoman, a city in Okinawa prefecture, Japan, a 14-year-old girl named Rinko Sagara read out of a poem based on her great-grandmother’s experience of World War II.

Perhaps the most moving moment in the opening days of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics was when Kim Yong-nam, the president of the Presidium of North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly, quietly wiped his tears as North and South Korean singers sang in unison at a concert celebrating the winter games.

The Planning of Nuclear War against the Soviet Union Started in 1945
As early as September 1945, “the Pentagon had envisaged blowing up the Soviet Union with a coordinated attack directed against major urban areas.

Six atomic bombs were to be used to destroy each of the larger cities including Moscow, Leningrad, Tashkent, Kiev, Kharkov, Odessa.
The Pentagon estimated that a total of 204 bombs would be required to Wipe the Soviet Union off the Map. The targets for a nuclear attack consisted of sixty-six major cities.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said recently that his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this week in Shanghai marked a new stage in Russia-China relations, and that the two countries will roll out all-around cooperation. China and Russia signed a $400 billion (237.1 billion pounds) gas supply deal on Wednesday, securing the world’s top energy user a major source of cleaner fuel and opening up a new market for Moscow as it risks losing European customers over the Ukraine crisis.

What game is China really playing by declaring an Air Defense Identification Zone in the East China Sea?
The spin in the US is relentless. This was no less than “saber-rattling,” a “bellicose” posture and a unilateral “provocation.” A possibly tense meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and US Vice-President Joe Biden in Beijing may have done nothing to dispel it.
