The Year of the Golden Rabbit – Chaos Triumphs!

The following are predictions not prescriptions!  There is a big difference!

Afghanistan– Karzai kicks out the US and NATO!

China – Faces new and strategic challenges to state security by Radical Islam within the next five years.

Egypt – The Muslim Brotherhood takes over and US foreign policy is defeated.

EU – Countries with Islamic majorities in the future literally go Islamic within the next ten to twenty years.  NATO is destroyed by this movement as is the EU.  Within twenty years the line between East and West no longer exists.

Hamas – Big Winner

Indonesia – Radicalization

Israel – The Israeli state is alone in the Middle East.  Egypt is no longer their ally.  The US exits the Middle East.

Malaysia – Radicalization

Russia – Islamic extremists now have a big place too plan attacks against Russia with the addition of Radical Islamic states in the Middle East.  Deeper and more strategic operations against Russia by Radical Islamists cause their ultimate victory in Chechnya.  Russia has no choice but to allow Chechnya to seccede.

Saudi Arabia – Barely Survives and acts as a focal point for Sunni forces in the war against Shiite forces.

Tunisia – Radical Islamists take over.

US – The Pax Americana is finally destroyed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pax_Americana).  The US struggles to handle domestic economic problems and withdraws from the world stage to never return.  The EU and China separately or together cannot create a new world order and the world slips into deadly chaos.  Ecological collapse that might have been solved with a world order of any sort is allowed to happen.

Yemen – Radical Islamists take over.

The World – Sea traffic through the Suez Canal allows sea traffic between Europe and Asia without having to go around the Cape Horn of Africa.  Any disruption of the Suez Canal would act as a global expense that would decimate the very fragile current economic recovery.

Radical Islam will overwhelm all anti-terrorist safeguards and be the big winner in the year of the Golden Rabbit!

The US is currently in a total lose/lose situation. Americans really do believe in the exportation of democracy to other countries even if I think it’s largely a waste of time since true democracy comes from within a country and this export attempt interferes with core economic and security interests.  Democracy in Egypt and the Middle East in general, means the election of anti-American
regimes.  At best they will be secular Anti-American regimes that we can reach a pragmatic accommodation with.  At worst, and more commonly, they will be radical Islamic anti-American regimes that cannot be reasoned with pragmatically.  I do think the current Pax Americana in the Middle East did allow for peace between Sunnis and Shiites and this will no longer be the case when the US loses influence in the US.  Like many such artificial situations, pressures have built that would not have built if small conflicts had been allowed over time.  Saudi Arabia and Iran are either nuclear or going to be nuclear and I do think the first tactical nuclear war of world history will be in the Middle East between Shiites and Sunnis.  Only religious fanatics would go down this road. Even a Stalin or Hitler knew better.

The best solution for the US is to move towards energy self sufficiency and allow the Sunnis and Shiites destroy each other while we watch from a distance. Radioactive oil isn’t very useful.

Where can you buy American comic books in Asia?

I have some answers.  First of all American comic books are defined as comic books from the United States of America.  This means not anime, manga or whatever!  If you can’t find Japanese comic books in Asia then you have more serious problems than where to find American comic books.  Asia on the whole prefers Japanese comic books to American comic books by a factor of ten at least.  British stuff, especially 2000 AD stuff is found in the same places as American comic books which is why I initially titled this post where you can find Western comic books but I mean Western as in culture not as in cowboys and the latter meaning was misleading.

First of all there is a Japanese chain called Kinokuniya that is all over Asia. The chain sucks when it comes to Western comic books in Japan but is pretty good about having Western comic books in their stores outside of Japan.

Below is a list of Kinokuniya stores in Asia:

Singapore

Ngee Ann City, Orchard

Bugis Junction, Bugis

Liang Court, Chinatown

Indonesia

Sogo Plaza Senayan, Jakarta

Debenhams Plaza Indonesia, Jakarta

Sogo Pondok Indah Mall, Jakarta

Seibu Grand Indonesia, Jakarta
Malaysia

Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur

Thailand

CentralWorld, Bangkok

Siam Paragon, Bangkok – The best source of Western comic books outside of the Philippines!

Emporium, Bangkok

Australia

I mention the store but of course Australia is basically a Western country that happens to be in Asia and Western comic books are everywhere.

Sydney The Galeries Victoria, New South Wales

Taiwan

Dayeh Takashimaya, Taipei

Breeze Center, Taipei

Kuang San Sogo, Taichung

Talee Isetan, Kaoshiung

United Arab Emirates

Dubai, Dubai Mall

Page One is a Singaporean chain of bookstores that is also all over Asia and also has a pretty good selection of Western comic books.

Page One locations are listed below:

Singapore

Vivocity

 

Malaysia

Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur

 

Hong Kong

Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong (with cafe)

Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui

Times Square, Causeway Bay (formerly known as Page One Twins)

 

Taiwan

SOGO Fuxing, Taipei

Taipei 101, Taipei

The best country in Asia for Western comic books, besides Australia,  is the Philippines.  All the major chains have a section devoted to Western comic books and there are out and out dedicated comic book stores in most of the big malls in Manila.
