"The new year isn't beginning well. The arc of instability now runs all along the Asia-Pacific coastline from Japan through the Indian Ocean and up the Persian Gulf and Red Sea into the Mediterranean.
Alarming games of strategic chicken are under way in the islands between China and all its maritime neighbors; Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam.
The Arab Spring is turning wintry in Egypt as the simmering Sunni-Shiite conflict combines with new horrors in Syria and new rumors of Israeli military strikes against Iran."

In a nutshell:on regional level:
1) tension will grow this year between China and its neighbours
, a real shooting war might be in the stakes
2) arab wintertime
: on going and worsening; with the help of Barry, muslim brotherhood takes over. Consequences, concequences, concequences.
new cold war ...... in the making, getting worse. overall developments:
1) food crisis: On going and hitting third world countries and emerging countries.
2) the run for the north pole
, who has the right to exploit what resources ..... on going.
3) debt crisis
: fiscal cliff is a laughing stock compared to the real debt crisis in the US and EU. Plan B is to introduce a new global currency and default on the old one, this currency exists already at the IMF and is already in use. A transition means also, that all your money will be worthless, or at least minus 80 % worthless.
: without growth and with high global competitivity, jobs are rare; people without jobs = high risk of social unrest. In the US = talk about gun confiscation. In Europe = states will split up (Spain), violent demonstrations, civil war.
Happy new year
