The New Threat

Events happen fast. With the melting of the ice at the Northwest Passage which is blamed on climate change, the US and Russia are interested in the new shipping lanes as well as potential oil in that region. Another European country is claiming territory in that area, but isn't that active in its claim.

Being rightfully owned by Canada, this country has been increasingly concerned with the growing interest of the two superpowers. It is said that Russian bombers are going to increase their patrols in the area starting next month; they have planted a Russian flag in one of the islands, and have sent small as well as nuclear subs in the area. The US has also been reported to have sent their subs there.

Canada, for its part has secretly laid fiber optic sensors during the summer to monitor and identify all traffic, whether it be sea, land or air in the area; Canada also has increased its sea patrols and would be buying more vessels to patrol in that area. Increased military personnel has augmented the present personnel assigned there composed of aboriginal natives (it's said that they're the only ones who could withstand the elements of the north all year round).

This is interesting. Another potential flashpoint aside from the conflict in the Middle East. This can lead to a much bigger problem.

I just visited YouTube and there was this story on Armed Forces TV, regarding the Canadian Army's upgraded M113s, where the reporter was a soldier speaking English with a French accent, while the soldier interviewed had an American twang. So perhaps the Canadians and Americans are somewhat "compatible".

The Russkies put on a big show about planting a Russian flag underwater at the North Pole with a submersible, earning the scorn of Canadian authorities. But then Putin fancies himself as a modern-day czar...

Close this MANILA, Philippines - American Express bank sees the peso surging to as high as 42:$1 in the next three months on the country's improved macroeconomic fundamentals and reduced global investor aversion to emerging markets.

The peso on Monday closed stronger at 45.155 from Friday's 45.31 to the US dollar as last week's 50-percentage cut in the US Federal Reserve's benchmark rate made Asian currencies and equities more attractive to investors.

In its currency outlook for September-October, the London-based global economics unit of Amex said lower risk aversion would boost peso value.

The bank assigned a 15-percent risk of the peso depreciating by over 10 percent against the greenback in the next three months. Over a 12-month period, Amex sees the peso holding at about 44:$1.

"The improved fiscal performance should remain on track and economic growth will likely stay well-supported by household spending, business investment and government spending, despite the Philippines' high exposure to the prospect of weaker exports," Amex said.

For this year, even the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (the Philippine central bank) has scaled down its export growth outlook to 8 percent from an earlier forecast of 11 percent.

"Worker remittance inflows are also well-diversified and will probably hold at a high level," Amex added

Yes, Revo. Both countries should merge as one. I don't know about those hot French-Canadian chicks, but I like Montreal Smoked Meat!

BTW, Glocks here cost almost twice as much as the ones sold in the US.

No, Canada should not merge with the US. If that happens, where will future draft dodgers run to? Mexico?

It's the Cold War 2 but since it is in the Artic, they might call it the Colder War
