It is a blow squarely aimed against China, costing China some trade perhaps, but basically a loser’s last roll of the dice.The back story appears to be far deeper than some relatively minor tariffs on steel and aluminium would suggest. It comes after a prolonged period of shadow-boxing between America in the blue corner and Russia

Hong Kong's currency regime is coming under serious strain as the U.S. Federal Reserve steps up the pace of monetary tightening, threatening to set off an unpredictable chain of events in the world's most overstretched financial system.

Pod People and the Matrix
The two greatest science fiction movies of the 20th century are Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) and The Matrix (1999). Both are seminal cinematic efforts that portray big ideological truths about the dangers of modernity and tyranny, and they do so with relentless hammer blows of frightful eeriness. The Pod People Invasion of the Body Snatchers  involves an extraterrestrial invasion in which mysterious plant spores have settled onto earth and then hatch into sinister leafy pods that migrat
