Come back another time. Maybe? he State Department announced the closure of 21 facilities this Sunday because of credible threats against American embassies in the Middle East and North Africa.

Hmm…. Why do you tell your enemy that you are not home before their attack?

Are you telling the al Qaeda that they might want to come at some other time?

Or is this Obama‘s ploy to tell the American people that NSA has to listen to your phone calls and check your emails in order to get intels like this?

Obama may want to show the American people that their tax dollars are hard at work and not all is wasted on IRS scandals or buying guns for Mexican drug lords.

United State’s new enemy – China December 2, 2010

The American’s war machine under the Department of Defense (DOD) has found a new enemy because it has to justify its enormous budget of more than $700 billion every year.

Just about how big is American’s defense spending every year? How about 46% of the total defense spending in the world.

Of course, the new enemy is China via North Korea.

Now that American combat troops have left Iraq, the top brass in DOD looked around the world and didn’t like what they see in China because China is threatening US’s standing in the world even though China’s defense spending is about 1/10 to 1/8 of what US spends every year.

The DOD get together with the State Department and devise a plan to open a new battle ground to block the expansion of China along the Pacific Ocean and India Sea, stretching from South Korea all the way to India.

The United States conducted several naval exercises with Korea navy in Japan Sea and East China Sea after the sinking of Cheonan. The United States deployed aircraft carrier USS George Washington to Korea and threatened to conduct a naval exercise in Yellow Sea.

Due to the tension between North and South Korea and the threat projected from China, Japan also beg the United States to intervene.

Taiwan has long been willing to be a small pawn in the US-China competition and its president has elevated the rhetoric of begging US to sell more advanced attacking weapons to Taiwan. The US has long been using this as a bargaining chip in dealing with China for more than a decade now.

The State Department also look at other disputes in Asia and decided to  make new friends with Vietnam and India with high level visits by Clinton, Obama and battleship. Of course, the sole intention of their visits was to further isolate China.

The United States could not compete with China on foreign trades. China will not raise the value of Renminbi according to US’ terms and China owns a big chunk of American’s foreign debt. About the only things US can do is to show its military power in order to intimidate China and to put China in a corner with the help of Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and India.

The line in the sand, or sea, has been drawn by the US against China. The US has started another war,albeit a cold war, to justify its defense spending.

Of course, China is not a 省油的灯 “sheng3 you1 de1 deng1,”

好戏还在后面呢。”hao3 xi4 hai2 zai4 hou4mian4 ne1。”

欲知后事如何,”yu4 zhi1 hou4 shi4 ru1 he1,”

请听下回分解。 “qing3 ting1 xia4 hui1 feng1 jie3。”

 

Imam Rauf said Cordoba House will proceed September 8, 2010

A modern era version of the full fledged of religion war is developing in the lower Manhattan of the  New York City.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has just came back from our-Tax-Money-funded, State Department-sponsored 2-month trip from Middle East nations during which he has, according to the State Department, fostered “greater understanding” about Islam and Muslim communities in the US. He has stopped by Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Qatar. From Imam Rauf’s Op Ed piece on New York Times, Muslims in the world have come to an agreement that the Cordoba House has to continue because there is no way that Muslims will submit to Christians or Jews.

Imam Rauf said that:

“The wonderful outpouring of support for our right to build this community center from across the social, religious and political spectrum seriously undermines the ability of anti-American radicals to recruit young, impressionable Muslims by falsely claiming that America persecutes Muslims for their faith.”

He continued that:

“These efforts by radicals at distortion endanger our national security and the personal security of Americans worldwide.”

and

“This is why Americans must not back away from completion of this project. If we do, we cede the discourse and, essentially, our future to radicals on both sides.”

In other words, if the Cordoba House is not permitted to continue, American heads will roll.

He also took the opportunity to give Americans a lesson on the word “islam.”

He didn’t address Obama’s comment on the “wisdom of the the ground zero mosque” though.

He did say that he’ll tell everybody where he got his $100 million from.

Hmm, I wonder how much of that $100 million came from our gas money we gladly paid at pumps every time we stop to gas up.
