U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson informs us that in 2008 Russia wanted to join with China to collapse the U.S. economy. China, however, had too much invested in America and didn’t go along with it. China is now divesting itself of U.S. debts and holdings, is buying gold by the ton, and beginning to trade with Russia outside of the American dollar. If they get off the dollar entirely, so will the rest of the world. If this happens, the dollar will lose most of its value, the economy will tailspin and Russia will be encouraged under Putin to do just about anything it damn well pleases.
Putin sees a weak U.S. with a weak leader. He sees no significant injury in doing anything he wants as he saw that his move on Crimea was met with watered-down responses from the West, especially America. Poland is calling up its reserves as is the Ukraine. In the case of the Ukraine, it is more symbolic than anything else as they haven’t a prayer . Poland, however, is a different story. They will fight. If that occurs the U.S. cannot stand by without participating in some way, whether it’s by negotiation or all out war.
As Russia moves to regain its lost satellites, the rest of the world will not just look on. Syria, Iran, Pakistan, India and others will all start to mobilize, because that’s what will happen when the only nation in the world that can prevent this becomes seen as weak and unable to participate. It gives the predators encouragement to see how much they can get away with.
