|The Chinese just rang in the year of the Ox, but the Mayhem has begun in 2009- Iceland Government collapses (that means a lot of Russians are reallly screwed too). Is this the end of the great Western era? Without a gunshot, Citigroup, Bank of America, AIG are still shaking in their boots. There are 2 groups of people that have hard cash- Somali pirtes and Chinese governments, but they too hold US dollars (a big oops). So is Asia too is in tow to sink in this whirlpool. As I said the JOker wins -everything burns. The world has seen a different class of a criminal in Wall Street. Now just wait for Russian commies to come into power and fire a few nukes or start another cold war.
