If you don't accept that Superpowers want to grab as much of the world for themselves, please press ALT+F4 now and be done with this thread Countries like US UK Russia have long term plans, these countries are like old timers, guys who've been around the block. British Royalty that used to run England 100% pretty much championed the long term plan when it comes to dealing with neighbors. In those days the rivals were Spanish and French. American colony was source of money and honey till revolution. Sorry for giving you bit of background, just that I don't have faith in Public Education So there was also long term plan for China, Chinese people have a different culture, so different in fact that radical long term plan was needed. First, British ownership of Hong Kong for 99 years, was a foot in the door, get the Chinese people and government to see how the white man does business and conducts himself. The next step was to show the Chinese how private ownership of Central bank is a "good thing". They wanted Chinese communists to eventually decide to pick among themselves individuals who will own the central bank and issue Yuan currency at interest. The hope was to then start dealing with these corrupted individuals of Chinese Central Bank. The plan failed miserably, the Chinese adopted many western things when it comes to finances, but NOT the private ownership of Yuan currency. And now China is debt free, surplus up the YingYang, the sphing sphing as Max Kiser like to say. And western Private Central bankers, FED, ECB, Bank of England are swimming in paper web they are not sure how to resolve.
