    Five stars to our host for getting granfalloons into a blog post.

    If the US, Russia, and Japan had gotten together in 1870, what would they have had to say to one another? Would they have agreed on anything?

    WRM is confusing BRICs and Blocs. The members of the one don’t need to be the other together to be significant.

    The fact that they are divided, and the fact that Europe is fracturing, is simply a set of lovely openings for savvy diplomats to exploit.

    History has not ended. The Game is more important than ever.

    And the Desperate search for Hegemonic power continues, as America continues to sit in the catbird seat. I’m not sure why a new power block is necessary to counter balance America’s benevolent hegemony which is responsible for the enrichment of all the BRICS. But I do know that such a power block would have to be made up from allies economically integrated. I cannot see the BRICS which are in competition with each other, ever being economically integrated allies.

    Why is South Africa there? It is a declining nation. I guess they need an african state.

    India and China are already rivals. So are Russia and China.

    Just an excuse for a nice trip and some photos.
