A Message About the TPP from The Incredible Hulk

Since Roman Empire, Indian Ocean key to trade between Europe, Asia and Middle East. Suez canal and Red Sea vital strategic entry points. This why Yemen, Gulf of Aden, key to international trade. Even ancient Hulks know, control vital trade route key to control or at least stabilize world.

By abandoning TPP, current administration compromising influence and stability in region. China likely to fill vacuum. Strategic and financial loyalty move from US to China. In already unstable, fractured world, now not time to cut all ties.

Hulk no foreign policy wonk, but flawed as TPP, world still better when nation have vested interest in other nation, when nation talk and work and compromise. Hulk say improve flaw of TPP, not abandon. Maybe Hulk solution not perfect, Hulk mind scattered, sometimes like two minds. Hulk wake up, Hulk not know how or why Hulk get here. But message still clear. In post global economy, isolationist policy not feasible in long term.

    Most respected Hulk, you says many good things, trusts your judgement but still wonder, how has it been, so many ngo’s have written so many things against these big trade treatys, making it sound these treatys more in favour of big corporations and not so much in favour of local people and poor countries? Some, like the TTIP have been written out very secretively and difficult even for parliamentarists to go and read what it says. (ok, it’s all out now thanks to wikileaks) ISDS causes worry too, Australia, Brazil and South Africa have excluded this clause from the treatys they take part. Are you sure this is no publicity stunt? Perhaps they changes their minds only too soon as they realizes the corporations gets the biggest share anyways. But yes, idea good, co-operation.
