MY COMMENT: Downfall- one of the best War movies ever made, IMO. Unfortunately, most Americans have only scene this scene.

Japan and the U.S.: Ad Hoc War, Ad Hoc "Recovery"
(June 14, 2010)


Japan had no real plan to win World War II, or for its "recovery" from its 1989 bubble. The U.S. has no real plan to "win" in Iraq or Afghanistan, or for this "recovery." It's all ad hoc, and the consequences are predictably catastrophic.

Through a bit of luck, I recently viewed an NHK TV program (in translation) on the origins of the Japanese attack on the U.S. Navy which launched World War II. To my great surprise, the war was all ad hoc.

do you know the difference between the word "scene" & "seen" such a simple sentence, yet you don't know what you're trying to say. Nice try buddy!

Exactly how many seabirds have been "slaughtered" by this spill?  I keep hearing about the "disaster", but I'm still waiting for this silly little thing called "physical evidence".  I'm not saying there won't be, but I'm still waiting for actual evidence that it's happening.  (Anecdotes & isolated incidents of tarballs or dead fish that cannot be directly tied to the spill don't count.)

The US has horrible reporting and most news agencies are in pocket, so the truth really is not known. Is it another Chernobly? Or Katrina? You really have no idea.

BP's Largest Shareholder says Oil Spill Good for the Economy


JP Morgan says that the Gulf oil spill will help the economy.

This is an odd thing to say, given that the spill is our modern dust bowl, which could very well deepen and prolong our economic woes.

What might explain such an odd statement?

Well, JPM is apparently BP's largest shareholder. So happy talk meant to drive BP's share prices higher can only help JPM.

Then again, maybe JPM's prop desk is making a fortune shorting BP, just like Goldman famously shorted the CDOs it was selling like hotcakes
