    Government of eastern pacifica holds hearings on us threat

    GOVERNMENT OF EASTERN PACIFICA HOLDS HEARINGS ON US THREAT

    The parliament of Eastern Pacifica is to hold a series of hearings into the behaviour of the United States of America, after deciding that it probably poses the biggest threat to Eastern Pacifica’s security, economy and values.

    US military expansion

    The hearings will concentrate on the build-up of US military bases across the Eastern Pacifica region. Members of the committee have started to suspect that the 400 or so US military bases surrounding our borders show that Washington could be more than willing to resort to force, whenever it sees fit. It will use the numerous wars launched by Washington as evidence. Recent discussions in Washington labelling our own single naval outpost in Madagascar, and deployment on a couple of tiny man-made sand banks as a threat, appear to the committee to be threats. Members will examine whether it is expedient to add to our current two ageing aircraft carriers to counter the United States’ 80 carriers.


    Economy

    Eastern Pacifica is growing increasingly concerned about the economic threat posed by the United States, and growing evidence that the current incumbent of the White House may be making up policy “on the hoof.” Eastern Pacifica is perturbed that Washington has labelled it an economic threat, considering that a large part of America’s recent economic growth has been driven by the sale of its own government debt to Eastern Pacifica, as well as the exploitation of our cheap labor costs. It is seen as unfortunate that the US could decide that what appeared to be a successful relationship is now being labelled as a threat, especially with the president now threatening trade wars most days.


    Values

    As a nation with thousands of years of history, Eastern Pacifica has grown increasingly wary about the encroachment of so-called “American values.” With the dominance of Hollywood films and American-made television series, we will examine the influence of what appears to be an obsession with militarism and weaponry, violence towards women, as well as concern over the influence of unaccountable ownership of the media companies producing the material.


    Technology

    The committee will examine the use of technology to influence the children of Eastern Pacifica, especially from California-based conglomerates. The threat posed by products produced by Apple inc. can be easily examined as much of them are produced here in Eastern Pacifica. The malign influence and monitoring capabilities of Facebook and Twitter will be a focus for the committees, as well as any links they are rumored to have to American intelligence services.

    A tongue in cheek suggestion for a group of sovereign countries to consider.

    As we sit here today, a non existent Economically/politically joined bloc. Within the next year, next decade, who knows?

    Possibly 1984's Eurasia + East Asia, possibly Eurasia + East Asia + Europe.

    Or as shown on page 13 of a presentation from Russia's Rosneft, "Large Eurasia" (Asia-Pacific, Russia Arctic, Caspian, ME and Europe). But then of course the number of ameristani military bases would be much less numerous.

    It was in the 70's, so my memory may be confused with the outcome. Was it a happy ending for the world?

    Why do you ask?

    No, it's just that he did a better job of inventing fictitious power blocs than you do.

    OhOh, I'm curious to know why you would bother to reply to the obvious, is a far more significant question.

    Inseed, you're a considerably more generous person, than I am, and particularly in that regard. Again, just curious.

    Do you know how long Durian trees grow for before producing a cash return 4+ years. Do you know how little effort is required to keep them happy and healthy leaf budders- very little. A quick turn of the irrigation valve on and off every 4 days in the, 6 months here, dry season, a sprinkle of fertiliser once a quarter and maybe a insect spray as required.

    Now the village has TOT "fibre2U", I have waited a number of years for it to arrive, my access to the WWW is limited only by occasional power blackouts and my wife's insistence that, "I come to bed for a cuddle". It's a tough life in the sticks!

    If somebody ask a answerable question, I believe it's polite to answer it. "What goes around comes around".

    In addition I get 1g of 99.6% GOLD per post, from THE LORD.


    Here I am answering yours, kerching, another 1g of 99.6% GOLD. "Every Little Helps"

    'arry and I, are at war. Not Global, or nuclear, more name calling by schoolboys.

    Luckily we restrict our weapons, (by UNSC Resolution 2 1946, Paragraph 3, "both parties have affirmed their readiness to seek a solution to the matter at issue by negotiation"), to "internet banter" as you see here. We scratch each other's backs, occasionally drawing blood.

    I'm sure after a few beers in the pub we would remain eristic and eager to buy another round just to continue. I used to have such conversations with my dad, who is no longer around. We disagreed greatly, when I was younger, but got closer in many ways in later years. There aren't many accessible, bilingual, eccentrics in my neck of the woods.

    Their aren't many here on TD, I believe, who argue their current opinion but sometimes modify their stance over time, an hour, a month or a year, with diplomacy. Many are unused to or unwilling to, modify their entrenched opinion, with grace.

    I think that applies to anyone these days.

    If only to tell stoopid tourists to stop standing in the middle of the road or trying to open an airplane door on the runway.

    "may come"?

    Clearly you haven't read the book then.
