    I cannot say the the concerns are not true. They are though incomplete. Russia and China have been in talk for years on how to replace the US dollar as the world standard of exchange. They had an agreement made on the two of them bypassing the dollar and use what method to exachange they created. Also, Gazprom’s major stockholder is V. Putin. Reneff while larger by most measures were left out. Russia also claims all the oil under the north pole is all theirs.

    I also do not agree with your summation on the Ukraine purpose. There are no natural resources. The have a port on the Black Sea. I find it funny that all the TV cameras showing people crying that they are Russian and are so happy to return tO Russia. What was shown how he can take land masses without much fight in that part of the world. What had to be a laugh for Putin was a;; these claims. The current boder was set at the end of WWI. 95 years ago. If living in Russia was so all consuming important, they had plenty od time to move.

    Syria, the true reason would never sell here. All navy ports in the west are either icebound part of the year. Or they can be held in port by the two straits they need to go through to reach the Mediterranean Sea. Again Syria has no natural resources. They have access.

    We have a navel base and can use Isreal airports if needed. Syria has been letting Russia have the same access there. They have no interest in anything there except access to the middle east. If the US would work out a deal similat to ours in Gitmo. The present ruler would be out in a day.

    But, that would mean giving equality with them and that will never do, never do at all.

      Howard, you should perhaps read Ivan’s other posts regarding Syria and Ukraine. It’s about energy corridors, as he has put it many times…pipelines. Look at the maps You will see why.

    Ivan, you talk about Russia building 8 nuclear plants in IRAN. Isn’t Iran self sufficient in energy with so much oil? I am just curious!

    1. Donnelly says:

      I can answer this one: nuclear is clean and much more cost effective. In other words, why would you use your oil when you can sell it for more?

      Furthermore:
      Burning oil to generate electricity produces significant air pollution in the forms of nitrogen oxides, and, depending on the sulfur content of the oil, sulfur dioxide and particulates. Carbon dioxide and methane (as well as other greenhouse gases), heavy metals such as mercury, and volatile organic compounds (which contribute to ground-level ozone) all can come out of the smoke stack of an oil-burning power plant.

      The operation of oil-fired power plants also impacts water, land use and solid waste disposal. Similar to the operations of other conventional steam technologies, oil-fired conventional steam plants require large amounts of water for steam and cooling, and can negatively impact local water resources and aquatic habitats. Sludges and oil residues that are not consumed during combustion became a sold waste burden and contain toxic and hazardous wastes.

  3. hope russia and china can make a deal and leave Europe to the west. it is about time that someone put the u.s. in it’s place. a few of the top americans–Nixon, the dulles brothers, bushes(george and George w.),Johnson, congress members, senators, to name a few have caused too many problems all for the sake of money. they will do anything and let their own people suffer because they are sooo greedy and never happy with what they have. they even went so far as to blow up the trade towers and blamed terrorists to take attention from themselves and the fact that a few trillion dollars were missing. check the videos of the towers coming down and you can see the blasts in the corners of the buildings(controlled demolitions) as they are falling. what kind of animals are in control of the U.S. that would kill their own people(workers, police, firemen, etc) they have no conscience what so ever. they pulled this off on the American people knowing the general populance is either too naïve or stupid to notice this or put the blame where it belongs. the people think the U.S. is so fantastic and the people in power are taking them to the limit. thankfully, some of the people are beginning to wake up. s.romanko

    Countries are frustrated with the DOLLAR ECONOMICS
    After all its based of inflation pressures OF BOOMS & BUSTS.
    Inflation methods is the guarantee of CONVERTION of assets with no value into real assets.
    War is to take place cause of control of that east area.
    The Fed does not want gold reserves thus must buy all the gold it can and strike a deal with the another currency to make sure that current capitalistic REALM continues to survive, THUS A NEW WORLD ORDER is surface-ing now.
    THIS NEW ORDER IS TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL COOUNTRIES ABIDE TO BE OR BECOME FULLY IN-DEBTNESS FOR THIS IS THE WAY ETC. ( what happen with United Nations.. just food for thought)
    The U.S. was at one time the growing power house just perfect for FED Bank, thus the DOLLAR CURRENCY WAS INVENTED (1916).
    They will take the side that will show the same ECONOMIC GROWTH signs the Us did,and we all know can guess who this power economic house will be if the concept of a New World Order fails.

    NORTH AMERICA WILL BE RE-INVENTED THEN.
    FOR IT IS FULLY CAPABLE OF SELF-SUFFICIENCY.Far away from current inflationary economics.
    It will take a revolution otherwise peaceful hopefully to end the current inflationary system on economics.
    There are better ways more beneficial to the overall societies. The NOW minds of wisdom know this and how, just need the majority to jump in the wagon. Its not that difficult.
    THE BANKING SYSTEM IS SIMPLE: nothing is created for return of REAL ASSETS. and the most important real asset is the NATURAL BEING. Only if we all would understand this concept we could change the world to a more prosperous and peacefull place.
    FOR WE ALL LIVE ON IT, ARE BORN FROM IT and must abide by its consciousness thus all cycles are ended as a result if not dealt with harmony that takes all involved into consideration..

  5. another short note: nuclear power is dangerous and can easily destroy the planet and yet most nations, notably continue to use it because that is how plutonium is produced which is used in the making of atom bombs. as l understand it, there is another element that can be used that causes no radiation, produces about 10 or more times the power, factory is about the size of a large school bus instead of taking up acres of land and is extremely cheaper. the problem(as the U.S. sees it)is that it produces very little plutonium making it difficult and expensive to produce atomic warfare. with the u.s. dollar disappearing, the only answer is for the U.S. to get a war started, which they will. they are experts at this game–U.S. power mongers start a war while staying at home and sending the men and women to fight. wonder what would happen if everybody refused and let the politicians do their own dirty work. by the way, the element for producing power—one gram could power your vehicle for a number of years is called thorium which Nixon squashed from use to enable the U.S. to continue 8using uranium, therefore producing plutonium for bomb making and staying powerful. don’t get me wrong—l am a friend of the U.S. and believe the American people are a great nation but their leaders leave a bad taste in everyone else’s mouth worldwide. American people—WAKE UP AND GET RID OF YOUR WARMONGERING PEOPLE IN POWER. l am a Canadian and proud to have the U.S. as my neighbor, but this pride is waning. s.romanko

    I would like to refer to your mention that Mr Obama have to pay so much interest , may I mention that the main cause is the cost for the Irak war declared by your friend Georges W.Bush ? witch was very costly for ? .
    One more reason for America with a big debt is a lot of the rich people in America in order to make more money switched their production In China ( product quality very questionable )
    and now you mention China’economy will surpass America , I think you should stop blaming somebody else for sombody’s responsability .Being a little impartial is more acceptable .
    I am Canadian , have a property In Florida and spend my winters there and enjoy it so far ?
