The game here is double dealing situation:
a) By having control on Ukraine, West will have
1) control on Russia's gas pipelines going to EU. These gas pipelines are the vein to Russia's CASHFLOW
2) By having Uks in NATO, Russia will be virtually defenseless and vulnerable to a quick deadly strike.
If this works all good.
If it does not then...............
b) Pile up economic pressure on Russia and wait for them to RETALIATE.
Like them asking for Gold or Rubles or Chinese Currency for the oil and gas that they sell around the world.
This will make the PetroDollar i.e USD lose immense value.
$17 Trillion in Debt Securities will lose value and suddenly the REAL value of the debt becomes 50%.
Inflation to kill off USD to wash off a big portion of debt will be a fast pill to recovery.
It will cause severe recession even depression and short 2-3 years of economic chaos for which Russkies are to be blamed.
But it will also open up the FREE CREDIT SPENDING ability for NEXT 3 DECADES for the Neocon Bankers to have some more fun.
US population will be more than happy to "make merry" from the crumbs and scraps that these bankers throw as the "left overs" after their lavish
Biggest losers will be Chinese and Japanese and other nations that hold US Treasuries.
Second biggest losers will be US middle and poor class. Their net worths will be devastated.
But media disinformation and DHS/NSA/CIA "SUPPRESSIONS, OPPRESSIONS AND IMPRESSIONS" will keep them in line of good behavior.
Suck up and Grin and all the while hope that tough times pass by quickly.
When these times are over..........it will be the dawn of the New American Century.
The only different scenario will be if Russkies unleash the NUKES.
Then all bets are off.............both YOURS (US general population) and OURs (NEOCON Bankers).
Time will tell..........................
