In Year 2012 or 2015-2020 - NO; in Year 2050 -2080 - QUITE POSSIBLE, iff the US Navy-DOD play their NT cards right! The US is already setting up SPACESTRIKE, of which GMD-TMD = "Aerospace Missle Defense" [ASMD/ASBMD] IS ONLY THE "DEFENSIVE" PART OF IT.
E.g. "FRACKING" CONTROVERSY/ISSUE, the US-WORLD = future OWG-NWO will face a significant crisis before 2040-2050 as per "Peak Oil/Resources" WHICH WILL FORCE A "GLOBAL/UNIVERSAL" DECISION TO BE MADE + ENFORCED WHETHER THE BIG OR SMALL NATIONS LIKE THE MERITS OR NOT.

PARIS -- French President-elect Francois Hollande suggested Friday that the government of outgoing leader Nicolas Sarkozy underestimated the country's budget problems and wants a new audit of France's books.
The back-tracking on all promises made during the campaign begins. Everyone now under the bus, or whatever it is they drive around in France...
But Hollande, a Socialist elected Sunday to lead the world's fifth-biggest economy, said that wouldn't hurt his ability to fulfill campaign pledges. Those include higher taxes on the rich, thousands of new teaching jobs and freezes on some government spending.
You can always increase taxes and it always works. Ask any socialist...
And Hollande stuck to his own deficit reduction goals despite new European Union figures released Friday that paint a bleak picture for France and the whole eurozone.
"I have known for several weeks that there was a greater degradation than the outgoing government said there was. We conclude that this is a confirmation," Hollande told reporters in the central city of Tulle.
He said the new figures do not necessarily mean he has less room to maneuver after he takes office Tuesday. "No, we had already expected this," he said in remarks shown on French television.
He's just laying out a marker here so that in the future he can point back and say, "it's all Sarkozy's fault." We've seen this in the U.S. where Champ is still blaming Bush for everything.
He said he's asked for an audit of France's budget by the Cour des Comptes, budget watchdog. The audit is expected to be completed by late June.
The European Commission predicted 0.5 percent growth for France this year and 1.3 percent next year if current policies are maintained. Hollande is aiming for 1.7 percent growth next year.
The commission forecast that the deficit would be 4.2 percent next year, well above the 3 percent Hollande is targeting.
Higher taxes will cause the French wealthy to move their assets to London. The deficit will become worse. Hollande will raise more taxes to compensate...
Hollande campaigned on promises to end a push for austerity started under Sarkozy, saying France and other European countries need government stimuli to get back to growth. Sarkozy argued that more government spending would only push debts up higher and worry markets and investors.
Not surprising. I would urge the Democrats to unseat Obama if I were advising them. He is doing more harm to their "brand" than anything since Jimmy Carter. He is probably going to do MORE harm to the Democrats overall by the time all is said and done.
