And Obama's "flexibility" (his cute term for appeasing the enemy) will make them more likely. On the near-term horizon:
- Greece - I think the collapse begins 11/16.
- Sequestration - and I think this leads to the decimation of the US military...
- as a result: another downgrade of USA debt...
- and then QE3 - leading to more inflation.
- And as a result of defense cuts: more aggressive Chinese hegemony and even the invasion of Taiwan and other islands by China.
- And also a more aggressive Iran and even a Iranian nuke test within a year.
- A Taliban takeover of Afghanistan is now inevitable...
- as is an Muslim Brotherhood abrogation of Camp David.
And that's just the next 12 months!
