Watching 'Russia Today' on the box and it is as if the old Cold War had never ended. Or perhaps it never did end. A feature on the dire state of the US economy and how debt is out of control and the floor is about to fall under them. Another one about how the Lybian situation is a war by proxy between the USA and China, for control of resources and politics in Africa. Which is not impossible, of course, although when you're used to news supplied by Western outlets, as I have become, it comes across as a bit outlandish. Of course there are two issues here: is it true, or at least feasible? Feasible, yes. On the other hand, is its value mainly as propaganda? Quite likely, in this case. Fascinating (I know, for some it may be as fascinating as watching paint dry).
