Just wow.

Ukraine gathers army, run military actions against mostly ordinary people with weapons there, while the official Russia doesn't do a thing, and yet, they will widen sanctions against them. Does anyone else finds this even more suspicious? And what a timing, right after Brics meeting...

And rightfully so. The current economic system is broken and it holds all of it's member nations hostage. It wil take some time but BRIC has been moving in this directions for a while and the US and western interests have done all they can to cripple it.

Europe has imposed some sanctions but not as stringent as the US.

Russia will, as the below statement verifies, respond,

I will take a seat and see what happens next, the US should not rely on Europe's backing for too long.IMO.

Obumma has both barrells loaded and continually shoots himself (US) in the foot.

B.R.I.C.S will get stronger as time passes and more countries join, leaving the US standing alone. (almost)

Russia quickly denounced the moves and vowed to retaliate. “We condemn those politicians and bureaucrats who are behind such actions,” Sergei A. Ryabkov, the deputy foreign minister, told the Interfax news agency. Mr. Ryabkov said that Moscow would respond with countermeasures that would be “quite painful and serious.”

Pffft.. Sanctions? Russia and China just formed BRICS. There are 130 countries willing to do business with them. Obama's just running his mouth. Russians been dumpin our treasury bonds all year by the tens of billions. They don't care about buying any of our debt. Europe better think about how they are going to heat their homes the next few winters. I can't believe the Germans are even considering it after being spied on and whatnot. We are going to end up without a friend in the world right when we need one the most.

Obama just pissed in Putin's coffee, and with a childish grin ordered him to drink it...

And the US sanctions are still not working... unless Obama's true goal is something else entirely.

That's exactly what I was thinking when I heard this. Hell, Russia should be commended for their tolerance of the US and their cronies in Ukraine. I think Russias patience is wearing thin and when they strike it will be hard and they will mean it. Their backs are against the wall. Just what the hell is Obama and the nuts behind him trying to accomplish anyways?

Russia reported to have built 5000 new Nuclear Bomb Shelters
US started building $100 million nuclear bunker near Tel Aviv in 2012 to be completed by 2014
US is said to have built a new underground bunker near denver airport

If war breaks out all the elite will be safe.

Maybe Obama is doing Russia a favor, if the US economy is about to crash then the less anyone has to do with the US economy the better for them.

Honestly, what's the point? The world wouldn't be worth living in if nuclear war broke out in my opinion. But then again maybe it would. The dawn of a new age if mankind exhausted all their nuclear power?

I sometimes regret ever bringing life (my twin boys) into such a f'd up world.

9/11 showed that you don't need intercontinental missiles for war. China or Russia could easily replace incoming international passenger jets with their own nuclear laden 767's. US would see cities explode without knowing who did it. Was it terrorist, Russia or China. Would US respond without proof risking even greater devastation! I think not.

Because elite have bunkers they can gamble humanity without risking their own life's. But even if we take two steps backwards, your boys may live to see a golden age, God willing.

Unfortunate for us that Russia is spreading it's influence in Latin America & Cuba unchecked. When presidents are doing their job you won't feel like the World around us is literally going to hell. When they are so caught up in everything but American interests you start hearing about crazy # happening everywhere & all the time. Like just recently a North Korean ship with unknown load docks in Cuba. This happened not to long ago. When twice a week we either scandals, crisis, foreign dictators on the move, Militants seizing countries, we forget about many scary could be scenarios. Anyway I think this assessment explains just how dangerous it can be to have a president who can't handle the job.

Could be, maybe the world elite know global warming will have same effect for humankind with problems to big to solve. So maybe a nuclear war with them ''safe'' in bunkers is a good enough solution for them.. (a nuclear war will bring global temperatures down ALLOT).
Still, it's kinda like too hard to believe they really do this but who knows.
