Bet the whole farm

"Quebec corruption inquiry ends after 30 months of public hearings":
"The judge who spearheaded the Quebec probe into systemic wrongdoing in the province’s construction industry urged all citizens on Friday to do their part to fight corruption and collusion.
“Whistle-blowing must no longer be viewed as an act of betrayal but needs to be strongly encouraged as a gesture of great loyalty to companies, the civil service and society as a whole,” France Charbonneau said in her closing statement.
“Laws and regulations are not enough to overcome collusion and corruption, so that’s why we must all do our bit. We must seize the opportunity to change things for the benefit of everyone.”"
"#BBCTrending: Syrian 'hero boy' video faked by Norwegian director"  This kind of anti-Assad propaganda - I'd like to know who funds the Shaam News Network - just encourages the conspiracy theories of World Jewry, who are obsessed with the idea that the evidence of all the monstrous atrocities committed daily by the Jews are faked Palestinian movie productions: "‘Pallywood’: A particularly ugly ethnic slur"  "Day of catastrophe for ‘Pallywood’ conspiracy theorists"  "‘Pallywood’ Killing Was Exactly What It Looked Like"

"No Debate and the New War"  The Jew-controlled media won't allow dissent in promoting Wars For The Jews.

"China's silky road to glory" by Pepe Escobar:
"When Little Dubya Bush came to power in early 2001, the neo-cons were faced with a stark fact: it was just a matter of time before the US would irreversibly lose its global geopolitical and economic hegemony. So there were only two choices; either manage the decline, or bet the whole farm to consolidate global hegemony using - what else - war.

We all know about the wishful thinking enveloping the "low-cost" war on Iraq - from Paul Wolfowitz's "We are the new OPEC" to the fantasy of Washington being able to decisively intimidate all potential challengers, the EU, Russia and China.

And we all know how it went spectacularly wrong. Even as that trillionaire adventure, as Minqi Li analyzed in The Rise of China and the Demise of the Capitalist World Economy, "has squandered US imperialism's remaining space for strategic maneuver", the humanitarian imperialists of the Obama administration still have not given up, refusing to admit the US has lost any ability to provide any meaningful solution to the current, as Immanuel Wallerstein would define it, world-system."
