CFN – The weirdest thing about writing about World Politics is you never really can tell the spin from the spin.
The whole concept that the World could possibly even end up in war over Syria allegedly using Chemical weapons against its own people was insane and now; a day before the anniversary of 9/11 comes word that the former head of the KGB has diplomatically resolved the issue by finagling Syria into an agreement involving Chemical weapons leaving a much weakened and surely embarrassed US President, Barack Obama.
In the meanwhile oil prices spent the last several months including the spike of the last two weeks at high levels that benefitted which country whose whole economy floats on resource prices?
I digress. The geo political restructuring of the Middle East is epic to watch; horrible to be living near; but surely this drama isn’t as critical as the entire Pacific Ocean being contaminated by nuclear tinged water from the Fukushima plant that’s been leaking in Japan??
Will you eat Sushi ever again?
It seems around the time that the Berlin Wall fell that somehow the CIA and KGB decided that working for the “man” was less fun than being “the man.”
It led to the US having the former head of the CIA become President and then a few years later his son for a redux that during his term has changed the planet forever.
As 9/11 dawns on the world tomorrow many are breathing a sigh of relief that the planet won’t enter it’s 3rd World War, but at the end of the day isn’t just more business as usual?
Syria will most likely fall; sooner, if not later, and then it’s Iran’s turn. And for what when we already have the technology to not rely on fracking, natural gas, and oil, clean or dirty.
But for today; September 10, 2013, the last laugh is on US President Barack Obama at the hands of Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
