What, are the Chinese trying to mimic ALL our energy-sector screwups?

So they matched our Corporate Mining Accidents-waiting-to-happen-and-guess-what-they-do with similar ones by similar causes and similar results, and using Imported American industry analysts who also work for BP, Exxon Mobil, Massey Energy, The Peabody, etc... Now, they've got a BP-esque Oil Spill in the Yellow Sea. Is it caused by their "socialist" supposedly publicly owned Nationalized Oil industry, now brought to its dying knees by the New Economy Capitalist Oil industry? Either one, of course, run under the supervision of the American and British Oil well, refinery and shipping Industry Experts who also work for BP, Exxon-Mobil, Massey Energy... The Rule of Three seems to have been pretty damned consistent in all of these lately, too, so maybe we can expect the Fully Capitalized Russian Oil Slick on the (deepwater) horizon? But not only are the Oil and Mineral extraction scams "safe as safe can be" they're also supposed to be vital for the survival of our economy. I always considered the massive food shortages that would be caused by the destruction of the ecology either directly through toxic pollution or "indirectly" through Carbon Dioxide, and artificially manipulated Ecologies using chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides... I always thought that was kind of sort of like, you know, similar to NON Survival. I would muse and wonder who writes the Energy Company propaganda but then, it's an in-house thing. They might farm out the spewing of such propaganda to Fox and AP and CNN etc... but the in-house writers produce the scripts the "independent" media are paid to mouth for them.

G7 vow to cancel Haiti Debt…

30 years too late. Mighty white of them. Swiss courts delayed announcing their decision, hours before the Earthquake, to reinstate the money stolen from Haiti by the Dvalier family, with the help of the CIA and Pentagon, and Swiss banks along with other multinational banking Corporations, to the Duvaliers. Not to Haiti. One Swiss official said that it's customary to wait several weeks before announcing court decisions. My take on it is that G7 and Credite Suisse and the IMF and World Bank would have been perfectly content keeping Haiti twisting in the wind forever or until the Haitian People collectively sold themselves back into odious hateful humiliating Slavery with the condition that they every morning en-masse they would have to issue a sincere apology for ever declaring themselves to be a free people.

Cornmeal

Lack of money to pay for higher priced cornmeal is what is helping starve millions in Southern Sudan, Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Somalia, and elsewhere in Africa. Many are just a few weeks from dying because they can't buy the cornmeal at current prices.   See: ZAMBIA: A better meal than maize-meal. and: Facing hunger in Kenya's Kajiado. Why not send the cornmeal in, instead of sending in the troops, setting up 'no fly zones', and spending money on 'pirate control'? Not to mention all that money being spent on supplying those US troops spread all around the globe with their daily rations of hamburger with cheese? Where's the humanitarian interventionism? Because your government is so horrible you can do your own personal part in helping people out here. Go to any dollar store and buy a couple of dollar bags of corn meal, then go the post office, get the stamps and send it off to... Starving Child Aid c/o Barack Obama White House USA with a note... Please make sure this food gets to countries in Africa where the poor can't buy cornmeal because you are spending so damn much world $$$ on 'missile shields', wars on drugs, wars on a ghost called global terrorism, and the war against common sense. Thank you, Mr. President Then again? ...better yet, just send it straight to... Starving Child Postal service of African Country with increasing hunger It would get there then perhaps? Less corruption.
