New World Disorder


I do not know what to make of this article in the Wall Street Journal maybe you can help me out.  

Is this a scare tactic or a push for the green?  Green could mean $$$ or another Global Warming Scam.  I am looking at this as more Propaganda and beginning to wander if our government has become better at it than the Chinese. I am also wondering who are they trying to convince us or the Chinese?

I did notice China is getting in on the Green (not the $$ they own plenty of our monopoly dough) but the Go bamaGreen sorry I am not trying to confuse you that could be either or I suppose.  I guess it is a non issue these days that China is amongst the worse in violations of Human Rights as long as they can fork over the dough after all the Author Cohen who was the Secretary of Defense from 1997 - 2001 is making his own money now as the Chairman of The Cohen Group, a global business consulting firm.

Sure thing Cohen I am certain the Chinese will get right on cleaning up their countries Pollution right after they give their citizens freedom.  If not you can ask Hillary to go over and beg them again or greenbama can sign another Treaty at the upcoming G8 in another end run around Congress.

From the WSJ...

Recent events confirm that we're living in a new world of disorder. North Korea tested a missile that could reach the U.S., and is threatening to resume its nuclear-weapons program; the Taliban is using drug money to destabilize Afghanistan and turn that country back into a terrorist safe haven; the financial crisis has sparked a global recession; and unchecked greenhouse gas emissions are transforming the global climate.

These disparate challenges share one thing in common: They cannot be addressed successfully without cooperation between the U.S. and China.

The most immediate opportunity for cooperation is in confronting the international financial crisis. China currently holds $2 trillion worth of largely U.S. dollar-denominated foreign exchange reserves, and it is by far the world's largest holder of U.S. government debt. As the Obama administration increases that debt to finance its economic stimulus plan, China will almost certainly be called upon to purchase the lion's share of new U.S. debt instruments. China also has an interest in working with the U.S. to ensure those efforts succeed, because it depends on economic growth in the U.S. (still its largest single trading partner) to ensure stability at home.

There is a compelling need to create a new dialogue on finance and economics. This conversation began with President Barack Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao's discussions at the G-20 summit this month in London. Meetings between U.S. and Chinese leaders have been dubbed the "G-2" by some to reflect the crucial role of economic negotiations between our two countries. This first meeting between the two men, and the agreement reached by world leaders at the close of the summit, mark a positive beginning to the effort to harmonize our financial management and banking regulatory practices, and explore ways to expand bilateral trade opportunities in areas such as energy and environmental technologies.

The U.S. and China are the world's two largest emitters of greenhouse gases. This means that our nations have the opportunity, and the primary responsibility, for shaping the global response to climate change. To date, both sides have used each other as an excuse for inaction. This must end. The Obama administration has made it clear that it will work hard on energy and environmental issues within our bilateral relations. China and the U.S. together have the power to set the de facto global standard for energy efficiency and emissions control. To do so, we should jointly promote the development and transfer of clean energy technology between our countries, initiate bilateral projects on energy and climate issues, and develop common principles to drive the multilateral negotiations on a new international climate-change agreement.

China and the U.S. have a shared interest in denuclearizing North Korea. That state's erratic behavior and brinkmanship, of which the missile launch was yet another manifestation, may one day persuade Japan to develop a nuclear deterrent. This is something China should want to avoid. As North Korea's principal supplier of oil and other essential commodities, China has significant leverage with the North Korean regime. The U.S. and China must stand together and increase pressure on the North to stop its missile testing, return to the six-party talks with Japan, Russia and South Korea, and abandon its nuclear-weapons program.

The U.S. and China have a shared interest in combating the international drug trade that fuels terror in Afghanistan. Today, Afghanistan competes with Burma as the main provider of narcotics to China. Much of the drug trade is facilitated by trafficking and organized crime networks in Western China. To combat these networks on both sides of the border, the U.S. and China should propose a new NATO-China antinarcotics program. Such a program could increase antidrug cooperation along China's border with Afghanistan. And it could serve as the basis for increased cooperation on other Central Asian security issues, including Pakistan.

To be sure, there remain a number of areas of serious divergence between Washington and Beijing. But with so many challenges facing our nations, the stakes are too high to allow old hostilities to impede constructive cooperation. Virtually no global challenge can be met without China-U.S. cooperation. By finding new ways to promote our common interests, the Obama administration can transform our relations with China and promote the global good.

Mr. Cohen, U.S. defense secretary from 1997-2001, is chairman of The Cohen Group, a global business consulting firm.

A New World Disorder is right you and the Elitists New World Order cronies making the money off of this scam are right out of your disordered minds.

More propaganda over at the WP hold your breath Dust Storms.  Of course I am sure you all know that Dust is to be outlawed.  Is it just me or would you not expect these ATV's pictured in the story to kick up a little dust? Honorable mention for Propaganda goes also to the WP for their story on Broadband Internet (it only deserves a mention because they act like they are giving you two sides to the story once in awhile I suppose they have to try and make the readers believe they are journalists and not paid Propagandists) being that greenbama says we need a new Grid and he wants to control the Internet and second runner up for Honorable mention to Reuters for the same reasons.

With the greenbama wanting to control the internet you will either have to buy some new technology or learn to speak a Bantu dialect but he probably has relatives that will decipher that.

"Sokwanele" means "enough is enough" in a certain Bantu dialect. It is also the name of a Zimbabwean pro-democracy website whose bloggers last year published accounts of atrocities by Robert Mugabe's regime and posted Election Day updates describing voter intimidation and apparent ballot stuffing. You can visit Sokwanele's "terror album" and see photographs: of a hospitalized 70-year-old woman who'd been beaten and thrown on her cooking fire (she later died, the site says); of firebombed homes; of people with deep wounds carved into their backs. You can find detailed, frequently updated maps describing regional violence and other incidents. You will be confronted with gruesome news, starkly captioned: "Joshua Bakacheza's Body Found."

Dust Storms Escalate, Prompting Environmental Fears

Increase in Dirt Affects Ecosystems In Western States

Advocates for off-road vehicle users say it's unclear whether, as some charge, the sport is a factor in the increase in airborne dust in the West.

Can Technology Save the Economy?

The U.S. stimulus bill includes tens of billions to support energy and information technologies. It is intended both to create jobs immediately and to set the stage for long-term economic growth. So why are economists and innovation experts so skeptical?
