Well, Richard,I’ve been watching you for a few years now and I think you are hitting your stride. Bravo on a very well written treatise.Now, if they don’t manage to blow the world out from under us we may just have a chance.For what it’s worth, it’s always been my suspiscion that the US wil not be rescued from it’s self imposed quagmire by US nationals (although the quality of many is beyond reproach), but by someone(s) from offshore, at least by way of example. In other words; I don’t think the revolution will start here but I do think it’s underway.
these are very difficult matters to make predictions about.

The previous email regarding Ireland and the link to the article urging a no vote on the EU was both very informative, and I have to think, changed plenty of Irish minds. Thank goodness. As for the US coverage, it was, as usual, pathetic, patronizing, and deceptive. Plenty of blogger-types had the goods, however, and those with eyes and an Internet connection had no trouble connecting the dots. I believe the most convincing point in that article regards the fact that Ministers of Finance cooked the whole idea up is essential in understanding how, as Meyer Amshal Rothschild bluntly put it: “I care not who makes the laws if I control a country’s currency.”
As for the Russian analysis, spot freaking on. I had a professor of History in 1978 tell my frat chapter, and I arranged for him to speak, that by, or just after the 21st century rang in, the Soviet Union would have collapsed, and a Russia shorn of its buffer states would be decidedly more democratic than the US. The reasoning he presented was precisely as you described as the difference between the two empires MO. Talk about bookends.
Thanks, Richard, for all your valuable insight and vast research. As we constantly wait for the proverbial other shoe to make noise, your commentary gives those of us who imbibe in it a few steps on the rest.

Now that the Axis has roused the Bear from its cave, it would make perfect sense for the Bear to take that opportunity to clear the nest of vipers the US has installed in Georgia.
Hear flamin’ well hear.The West didn’t stop at the Kuwait border, the Allies didn’t stop at the German border, how stupid the Russians would be to do differently in Georgia. Aggression has to be punished and peoples’ right to self determination has to be protected, everywhere, geostrategy or no geostrategy. The South Ossetians were viciously attacked and aggressors need to be unpunished wherever they try it on no matter what the ideologues think about essentially lesser priorities. Dismantling the Georgian armed forces and taking over the oil pipeline would be a reasonable start.Dion

The US’s need for an enemy, especially one which it doesn’t have to go to wart with feels right on.

I also believe that the International Bankers used the USA’s Intelligence and regime manipulation to drag Russia into a war with Afghanistan! Russia has the potential to be more independent of the International Banker’s control than any other nation mainly because of it’s fossil fuels as well as land, water, and other valuable minerals. This makes them a more real threat to the control offered by the international bankiing system!Jerold Hubbard, Top Soil Miner alias Grass Roots Farmer
