Sean Gourley on the mathematics of war

– Barack Hussein Obama will move from one transgression and or scandal to the next throughout his entire presidency. 

– As time goes on more and more from his past will be discovered that will show him to be even more unworthy. Especially his Chicago goings-on.

– It might be resolved that he is not a natural born citizen, but having been president for some time he will remain so, and thus the constitution will have been jeopardized.

From the wsj.com article:
The last of Samuel Huntington’s books — “Who Are We? The Challenges to America’s National Identity,” published four years ago — may have been his most passionate work. It was like that with the celebrated Harvard political scientist, who died last week at 81. He was a man of diffidence and reserve, yet he was always caught up in the political storms of recent decades.

“This book is shaped by my own identities as a patriot and a scholar,” he wrote. “As a patriot I am deeply concerned about the unity and strength of my country as a society based on liberty, equality, law and individual rights.” Huntington lived the life of his choice, neither seeking controversies, nor ducking them. “Who Are We?” had the signature of this great scholar — the bold, sweeping assertions sustained by exacting details, and the engagement with the issues of the time.

He wrote in that book of the “American Creed,” and of its erosion among the elites. Its key elements — the English language, Christianity, religious commitment, English concepts of the rule of law, the responsibility of rulers, and the rights of individuals — he said are derived from the “distinct Anglo-Protestant culture of the founding settlers of America in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.”

Critics who branded the book as a work of undisguised nativism missed an essential point. Huntington observed that his was an “argument for the importance of Anglo-Protestant culture, not for the importance of Anglo-Protestant people.” The success of this great republic, he said, had hitherto depended on the willingness of generations of Americans to honor the creed of the founding settlers and to shed their old affinities. But that willingness was being battered by globalization and multiculturalism, and by new waves of immigrants with no deep attachments to America’s national identity. “The Stars and Stripes were at half-mast,” he wrote in “Who Are We?”, “and other flags flew higher on the flagpole of American identities.”

From the article:
The United States is worried that Russia, China and OPEC oil-producing countries could use their growing financial clout to advance political goals, the top U.S. spy chief told Congress on Tuesday.

Such economic matters joined terrorism, nuclear proliferation and computer-network vulnerabilities as top U.S. security threats described by National Director of Intelligence Michael McConnell in an annual assessment.

McConnell said U.S. intelligence agencies had “concerns about the financial capabilities of Russia, China and OPEC countries and the potential use of their market access to exert financial leverage to political ends.”

Russia, bolstered in part by oil revenues, was positioning itself to control an energy supply and transportation network from Europe to East Asia, and the Russian military had begun to reverse a long decline, he told the Senate Intelligence Committee.

China has pursued a policy of global engagement out of a desire to expand its growing economy and obtain access markets, resources, technology and expertise, McConnell said.

It seeks a constructive relationship with the United States and other countries, but as its influence grows “Beijing probably will increasingly expect its interests to be respected by other countries,” he said.

Russia and China have long been able to target U.S. computer systems to collect intelligence, he said. “The worrisome part is, today, they also could target information infrastructure systems for degradation or destruction.”

In the energy sector, a weak U.S. dollar had prompted some oil suppliers, including Iran, Syria and Libya, to ask for payment in other currencies, or to delink their currencies from the dollar, McConnell said. “Continued concerns about dollar depreciation could tempt other producers to follow suit.”

From the article:
In Washington these days, people talk a lot about the collapse of the bipartisan foreign policy consensus that existed during the Cold War. But however bitter today’s disputes are about Iraq or the prosecution of the so-called global war on terrorism, there is one bedrock assumption about foreign policy that remains truly bipartisan: The United States will remain the sole superpower, and the guarantor of international security and global trade, for the foreseeable future. In other words, whatever else may change in the decades to come, the 21st century will be every bit as much of an American century as the 20th.

Oil, and more importantly a dependable oil supply, is the lifeblood of all industrialized nations. An oil supply is necessary to the welfare and continuance of all industrialized nations. In order to conduct war an oil supply is essential.

Russia will become Communist again or a variant of Communism more similar to the form present in China today. China wishes to be a Super Power. Russia wishes to re-establish itself as a Super Power. Russia and China will collaborate to become economic-rivals against the U.S. for the purpose of dismantling U.S. hegemony. Using the pseudo-capitalist communist variant both Russia and China will rise to become the primary economic and strategic rivals of the U.S.

Russia and China will further court the countries of the middle east undermining all U.S. efforts in order to secure their oil supply and to draw off oil from the U.S. in order to; first, diminish the U.S. economy and second, to deprive the U.S. of the necessary oil needed to conduct a war against Russia and or China directly or via proxy.

As an aside: Iran wishes to take control of Iraq and so a large amount of oil is in play. Russia-China will work hard to maintain friendships with Iran and therefore will not support action against Iran by the U.S.

The European Union also wishing to see the decline of U.S. hegemony will support Russian-Chinese objectives believing that their own authority will rise via the work of Russia-China who they believe will not be capable of maintaining their power for any length of time leaving the door open for their own ascent.

Lets watch the news and the development of stories that either support or refute this theory.
