Forecast 2013: Wars in the Middle East, the rise of China and new political intrigue (a new interview at The Washington Times)
Hawai’ian politician and journalist Danny de Gracia and I sat down for another interview recently.
DDG: What do you think we should expect or look for this year?
Aurini: I’d give a fifty-fifty chance of a major shake-up in Europe. The EU has been forcing self-destructive policies down the throats of their member nations, against the will of the citizens, and reactionary nationalist groups are beginning to form.
The value of the American dollar will continue to degrade and we could see a new war with Iran or Syria while ignoring that blight upon human existence, North Korea, or the war machine growing in China.
We’ll probably sadly see more Sandy Hooks and James Holmes-types as our society alienates more and more individuals. Gun Control discussions and obsessing over mostly non-existent terrorism will begin to jump the shark, as more Americans see it for the nonsense that it is.
