Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) versus Bliderberg: Where are Real Decisions Being Made?
China, Russia, Pakistan, India -- not to mention Iran -- the SCO brings together the most serious threats to the empire’s plans in one clutch. With the possible exception of China, Bush didn’t take any of them seriously. Obama does. But so far, the SCO has been more bark than bite. If by this time next year, India and Pakistan are admitted, and if non-dollar denominated "swaps" reach a critical mass, Bilderberg may well have to put the SCO and what to do about it at the top of its next agenda.

Globalization And Its Consequences
It is this unique position that has enabled China to increase its share of world exports of ICT products (such as computers and telecom equipment) from 3 per cent in 1992 to 24 per cent 2006, and its share of electrical goods such as semiconductors and semiconductor devices) from 4 per cent to 21 per cent over the same period. Of course, these are not truly Chinese exports, but rather exports assembled/produced in China. Foreign corporations are responsible for approximately 60 per cent of all Chinese exports; their share is 88 per cent for high-tech goods.

Unmanned aircraft US urged to rethink export controls on drones By Jeremy Lemer at the Paris Air Show
“Countries have an insatiable appetite for drones . . . and unless something changes in US policy [UAVs] will be another area where in five years we will look back and say, ‘gee we missed the boat, the US missed the boat’,” James Pitts, who heads Northrop’s Electronic Systems unit, told the Financial Times.

Bilderberg 2011: The Rockefeller World Order and the "High Priests of Globalization"
"The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." — David Rockefeller, 1991.

SCO steps out of Central Asia
Nyet to US military bases — SCO is set on making NATO (and Pax Americana) simply irrelevant to an entire landmass, which with the induction of India and Pakistan will account for more than half of mankind. NATO may face a piquant situation when it aspires to claim that it is the only global security organization available in the 21st century.

Global Europa Anticipation Buletin Tuesday,
      GEAB N°56-Special Summer 2011 is available! Global syst
We can see the exhaustion of the "end of the Euro" dialogue by the fact that Wall Street is now reduced to get Nouriel Roubini to intervene regularly to attempt to try to give credibility to this fairy story. Poor Roubini, whose forecasting work neither foresaw the global crisis, nor ever exceeded six months, finds himself reduced to having to foresee the "end of the Euro" in the next five years, or at least a fundamental reform of the Eurozone… potentially leading to increased European integration. We quote the author from his recent speech at a Singapore conference repeated in the Figaro of 06/14/2011. So if we summarize Nouriel Roubini’s prediction there would be an end to the Euro in 5 years, unless in fact the Euro is strengthened through the permanent establishment of a "new sovereign", Euroland. What forecasting! Beyond the effect of an eye-catching announcement, which consists of saying that within five years (an infinitely long time in a time of crisis, and Roubini spoke of much shorter maturity dates only a few months ago), one thing or the other can happen. Thank you Dr. Roubini! It's hard to try to forecast and to work for Wall Street at the same time. But indeed, you must take your part in the general (vain) attempt to convince Asians not sell dollar-denominated assets in favor of those in Euros.

Gold, The Real Reason for the Fall of Dominique Strauss-Kahn
Methods used by the IMF feature the issuance - or printing - of its own near-money Special Drawing Rights, and the swapping of these for central bank gold from "assisted countries". The aided country will, through IMF magic, report an increase - not a decrease - in its central bank holdings despite the physical gold being transported out of the country.

How the City of London Controls World Power ...
Like Vatican City, London City (not to be confused with Greater London) is a privately owned corporation operating under its own flag, with its own constitution and free from the legal constraints that govern the rest of us. And it was King William III in 1694 who paved the way for a private cartel of international bankers (money elite) to embark on a plan of implementing world governance, albeit secretly (that is until now, thanks to the Internet Reformation).
