The Samurai -vs- The Cowboy

Very interesting…. with Japan holding a lot of US debt in its hand, it may be the samurai that will finally be able to stop the cowboy that is US government :
Japan threatens huge dollar sell-off

Another possible player are the Arab governments – if they’re brave enough to switch to Euro for their oil transaction, USA will be significantly weakened. But they’re a bunch gutless cowards at the moment, so US gov’t got nothing to worry about regarding them.

We’ll see.

  1. Indeed, they have tried. And the result is the first total blackout along the east coast, for a couple days — enough time to suspend the transaction and offer some “negotiations”, heh :).
    Meanwhile I’ve heard, a couple years ago, Mr Blair would start the process for Eurofication :). Where’s he now?

  2. He’s still in 10 Downing st, don’t worry mr Koen. Last time I heard they’ll hold the referendum soon, I forgot when exactly, but I think it’s sometime next year.

    But seeing Mr Blair fighting for the unification (against UKIP, economic concerns, etc) is confusing me. Especially when he’s a very pro-US guy. I think I’m missing something big here.
