The present health issue now is that of the ‘Bird-Flu’. It is a wonder why, about two years ago, it was an issue in Hongkong. Then China had the SARS health scare. Now, H5N1 virus is back and even stronger!
Hongkong has been reverted back to China. China is now becoming an economic power that has kept the United States uneasy. They have been pressuring China to let its currency find its own value, lest devalue it. No matter what the U.S. does, China still keeps coming on strong.
A parallel to this situation happened in Cuba some time in the ‘60s. A documentary film showed that the CIA admitted to drenching cats with gas, setting them on fire and released in farmlands of Cuba. This was to put down Fidel Castro who was disgruntled when he was snubbed by the U.S. government when he went to the U.S. and wanted to have talks. Castro resorted to dealing with Russians instead.
The U.S. wants to control the world economy to their advantage. This is why Europe came up with its Euro-Dollar. This prevents US dollars from being the currency in trade in Europe. When there is demand for dollar in world trade, its value gets higher. A Middle East oil rich country, at one time, wanted to institute the same own Asian trade currency, but unfortunately it did not gain ground. Could this have been because the U.S. did a 9/11 and blamed it on Bin Laden who happened to be mid-easterner. And also, who was once their ally against USSR? The US government would care less about those who perished during 9/11. Look at how it does not care about its own army who had already about 2,000 of them in Iraq, and still mounting. Sacrificing a few innocent people for a common good? Until now, the U.S. has not found any WMD in Iraq! So, there goes the Asian currency proposal – scared of what the U.S. might do!
Why is the U.S. government scared of the dollar not being a ‘world currency’? Because when no one needs the dollar it will go back to their country. When it goes back there, there would be an over-supply of dollar currency with no demand – it will have less value – there goes their economy! If there were Asian Dollar with the Euro-Dollar, they would need both currencies to trade with those regions while those regions will keep only enough US Dollars for trade with them. Trade between Asia and Europe will not utilize US dollars anymore.
So, if the U.S. government can not do anything to pressure China to tone down with their economy, the next best thing is to hit it with something else! Mind you, the U.S. could already have in its Top Secret a vaccine or cure for ‘Bird-Flu’. Just like in the case of Motorola that they restricted it within their military technology. When cellular phones made it to the market, Motorola was not able keep up with its competitors.
With the land mass, population, business wizardry and mentality of Chinese, unrestrained, it will easily become an economic power in a decade. China is now being hit where it is most weak – health care. Without good health you cannot have good economy. No one will trade or invest with a country that has health problems. If bird-flu came back, is SARS just lurking around the corner?
Looking at the global fly routes of migrating birds, there are only two routes on both extreme sides of the U.S.A. Nice move, huh? Asian countries first affected, then Europe! Notice something peculiar? Manageable in their own turf?
Will we ever know if it is the U.S. now using WMD in a discreet way? It is with wish that the once KGB, Mossad, Scotland Yard and other intelligence agencies of other countries try to find it out. With Japan, the Middle East and China, they would easily pump up the economy of Asia. Just imagine, the oil resources in the region, technology, population available as workforce and vast lands for agriculture, Asia does not have to be at the mercy of the U.S. government whims.
Leave the world alone. Attend to your 37Million poverty-line countrymen divulged by Katrina and seconded by Wilma. As it is said,, “charity begins at home”. Al-Qaeda might capitalize on the 37Million poverty stricken!
