Could McDonald's Be the Latest Victim of Russian Retaliation?

How do you say "leave my burgers alone" in Russian.

Putin's playing hardball now, his own sanctions affecting burger buyers in Russia, with no thought for the kiddies birthday parties that have already been booked in advance.

Only four stores have been closed, more on the way I would imagine.

McDonald’s may be the most visible face of U.S. capitalism in Russia, with 438 restaurants spanning the country, from Moscow to eastern Siberia. Still, it looked set to ride out Russia’s new ban on Western agricultural imports, since all the ingredients it serves Russian customers are locally sourced.

Today, though, Russia’s national consumer-safety regulator ordered the closure of at least four McDonald’s outlets, including its flagship Pushkin Square location, for alleged violations of sanitary rules. The watchdog agency didn’t mention President Vladimir Putin’s battle of sanctions with the U.S. and European Union in ordering the closures, but Russian authorities have wielded consumer-protection enforcement in other political controversies, as when they shut down a candy factory owned by Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko. McDonald’s (MCD) says it is studying the regulator’s claims.

When we see BIG corporations being attacked in this fashion, World War will erupt.

These are corporations owned by the richest men on Earth, they will not allow someone like Putin to start attacking them, without some form of retribution.

I feel we are closer to World War than anytime over the last 50 years.

Motor racing's 'Big Show', Formula 1, is coming to Russia's Sochi Autodroma in less than 60 days.

The worlds biggest corporations will all be there, including Germany's Mercedes race team and their sponsor, the Malaysian government owned, Petronas Oil.

With the only Black driver, Lewis Hamilton, poised to win the championship, the Fuhrer's old team, Mercedes, is beside themselves with the same horror Jesse Owens caused them at the Berlin Olympic games in 1936, just before WWII.

The stage feels set for a repeat of history that will bring about the start of WWIII.
