Yesterday, the icy wind brought life to the flags of our world...

But let us never forget that these flags do not represent a love-hate relationship. Only an icy hate relationship:
Luo Ping, a director-general at the China Banking Regulatory Commission, said after a speech in New York that China would continue to buy Treasuries in spite of its misgivings about US finances... US Treasuries are the safe haven. For everyone, including China, it is the only option.” Mr Luo, whose English tends toward the colloquial, added: “We hate you guys. Once you start issuing $1 trillion-$2 trillion [$1,000bn-$2,000bn] . . .we know the dollar is going to depreciate, so we hate you guys but there is nothing much we can do.”
La haine is the new world order.
