Medvedev and Obama will sit down together at the G20 meeting this week, at a time where every meeting is critical. Both Russia and the Obama administration want to normalize relations after a long period where Russia was in decline, and America had taken full advantage.

Those days are gone, both superpowers struggling under the weight of their own excesses. No longer the dominating powers that they once used to be, America and Russia look to each other as not just equals, but also partners in a world where Europe and China have grown to equality in prowess and influence.

America is still fighting the cold war in so many ways, and it has a long haul ahead coming to grips with new geopolitical realities. Far from a “madman”,

Medvedev is a rational player on the international stage with respect and prestige around the world, and Obama will use his own popularity to cement a friendship that will see the both of them through a very trying decade to come for each.

A “Shot Across The Bow”

On the eve of the G20 conference in London, China took the lead in setting the agenda, displaying for all it’s concern over a collapsing US economy, and a mismanaged monetary policy.

China, Russia, South America, and a host of others are watching the value of their investments in America melt away, just as America is appealing to them to buy even more debt, and in staggering amounts. This sets the stage for a historic case of buyers remorse, in which huge, powerful economies are being destroyed by their exposure to US dollars and policy. After several decades of exporting their problems to the world, Americans now face a day of reckoning with their creditors.

Americans Forget (again) That Foreign Citizens Have Brains

With 70% of the Czech population against having US missiles on their soil, defending America against an imaginary Iranian onslaught appears as transparent to Czech’s as it does to the rest of us.

Americans Ignore The Cancer Beyond Its Borders

Kinda like having a peeing end of the pool.

With the focus on General Motors and the collapse of the vital American auto economy, most forget that this is a worldwide calamity. Europeans, deep into the heart of the old Soviet Empire, all are suffering at the meltdown of the American Way.

Romania is just one of dozens of examples, none of which make the media here in the west. Labour heavy automakers are shutting down, auto suppliers falling like dominoes, and simple citizens of the recent western way are being tossed onto heaps of hopelessness and despair.

Worse, American controlled international safety nets like the World bank and the IMF make bail out support contingent on dismantling social safety nets – as if nothing has changed in the world.

While we here in the west agonize over highly paid union members and a lifestyle – even at its worst – which is light years ahead of countries like Romania, any solution here is pointless without one there.

 Americans in Russia Just Lovin’ It

 America needs low Oil prices to help its oil sucking economy. Russia needs high oil prices to help its oil and gas pumping economy. Who is gonna win?

Watch the President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia, representing thousands of American businesses in the former communist country, get all wet and excited over the prospect of higher oil. Then the punch line – get out while the going is good and come to Russia, where the futures so bright I gotta’ wear shades.

Weird world we live in.
