12 Days to Collapse Of the Auto Induetry Failure in the Global Economy

The Japanese earthquake and Tsunami on Friday March 11 2011 2:46 Pm local time devastated the eastern coastal areas of a 250 mile swath of the country, as well as having a major impact on the rest of the country. This caused power outages, travel stoppages and massive disruption of normal business in addition to the thousands of dead and injured all over the country.
But this is not about the loss of life and the devastating effect to the people of Japan, though they have our prayers. This is about the lay off and shut down of effected industry’s in the US and around the world A mere 12 days since the events and many companies are without parts to run their assembly lines, All the car makers in America and Europe, Sony, Hitachi, even the highly anticipated Apple I pad 2 has been effected and is in short supply.
Think about this, while a significant event, this really only impacted one country, and yet due to the nature of just in time inventory, if it’s not just in time you’re in trouble.
A single point failure is defined as: Element or part of a system for which no backup (redundancy) exists and the failure of which will disable the entire system.
The global  economy has not served to lessen our risks of failure, in reality each part is so very dependent on the other , “we don’t even know” how all the interdependencies affect  one another, and  we can’t even calculate the possible damage or the effect of one country’s infrastructure or economy being removed , even for such a short time.

Libyan Airstrikes and the Western Oil grab in the name of "What"

The ongoing Libyan airstrikes only serve to show that American intervention can only be expected in cases that impact our own, or the national interest of our allies, in this case France and the U.K. While I don’t have a problem with that in concept, I do mind the rhetoric, fundamentally we don’t really care about you or your country only its resources’ and access to them. Let’s not be hypocritical here if there were no Oil there would be no air strikes.

Currently Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Bahrain, Jordan and Yemen have ongoing protests and at least the possibility of overthrows or at least major changes to the existing governments.

I have seen no MSM (main stream media) coverage to date of the extreme instability in world politics or the effects (Nuclear) if the many oppressive governments we currently support Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen, Qatar, are overthrown. Or where we, (US) are going to get oil and what the other major players, Russia, China, and EU are going to do to get it (anything).

With the rapid rise in worldwide inflation, the plundering of the middle class around the world and the frustration of people everywhere fueled by world events, disasters, and the highest food prices in 30 years we may very well be on the edge of another world war.

Before and After Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant pictures

Fukushima Daiichi power plant, before the 9.0 earthquake and Tsunami.

" On March 14, 2011 between 11:00 and 11:04 AM local time (02:00 and 02:04 GMT), DigitalGlobe’s constellation imaged

the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant twice--approximately 1 minute before (see page 5) and approximately 3

minutes after (see slides 6,7 & 8) an explosion at the No. 3 reactor building. This is the second major explosion seen at the

facility, following the explosion at the No. 1 reactor building on March 12, 2011 (see page 4).

Substantial damage could be seen to the reactor building, including the upper structure being largely destroyed with the

building’s roof and side panels blown off. In addition, an extensive smoke and dust plume could be seen drifting east

approximately 2 kilometers from the damaged reactor building."
