The United States ambassador to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum says America must be included in any Asia-Pacific free trade agreement.
In a parody of the Monty Python sketch, Spanish Inquisition, it seems that absolutely nothing is to be permitted to take place on the face of the globe unless the United States is included. The US is demanding to be included in any Asia-Pacific FTA, and if it eventually is, just watch the rubbery mask come off. Thing is though, everyone expects the United States. To whinge and bitch about not getting their own way when it comes to trade negotiations, that is.
Bannerman says, Fuck ‘em! East Asia is most definitely NOT the Washington ring road.
