|"It is really not all that hard to figure out " - V. Putin, 2014|
I continue to scratch my head while trying to figure out exactly what the US and NATO are trying to do as they push Russia into a corner. While the Western Media outlets would lead you to believe the situation in Ukraine is getting better, the overall picture remains troubling as the US Military Industrial complex seeks out an outright conflict. Russia considers NATO buildup near its borders as demonstration of hostility – deputy FM
“Do Finland want to start World War III,” asks the Russian President’s personal envoy Sergei Markov ahead of Lavrov´s visit to Turku.
At least in this case I do not believe this has anything to do with “Russian Propaganda” as the map above speaks for itself. Add a few more years and a few countries to the blue map above and you have Russia nearly encircled. This would be equivalent to having a massive Russian military buildup in Canada, Mexico, Cuba, the Atlantic and the Pacific. Does Russia pose a threat? I don’t believe so and I don’t see it.
There is little doubt the risks of engagement increase as we pass Peak Oil globally and other raw material shortages are felt. Human history is simply repeating itself, as expected.
Noam Chomsky believes we are starting to see the unwinding of the Hegemony as a new world order transpires. Within five years the US dollar will no longer be the global reserve currency. That will devastate the Western economies as they will no longer be able to buy oil and lots of other stuff with paper IOU s. In other words they will no longer get things for FREE!
You knew that game could not last forever, so it should not come as a surprise to anyone, particularly Russia and China.
