"I didn't pay them for sex, I paid them to leave"
Life is all about ass, you're either covering it, hauling it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.
Obama plays tiddly winks while Putin plays Stratego.
I've always said that we need to watch out for the alliance of Russia and China. China has always been the little brother to Russia.
If those two control the far eastern, middle eastern, and Med waterways, look out for WWIII.
Meanwhile, we have no real presence in the ME waterways.
I read all the other stuff...when I worked ( & Left the oil patch ) in Midland/Odessa TX...the Chinese were in the process of buying Frac-Tech...( now Int'l )... one of the bigger players around West Texas. Lots of equipment, & they were also building "Man-Camps" in several locations. We re-located several complete FLEETS for them around Waco, Pecos, Big Springs, etc, in prep for "trainees" coming over on "I-9" (management ) visas. If the camps housed 1-2 ea. americans...'spose 6-8 trainees wouldn't be out of the question.
More like par 3 off the 5th hole at Honolulu.
