So Russia is under attack by the West, but why ?

The answer is, Russia (and China) are attacking the West.

First we look at the economic attack on Russia which most are now aware of, but explained a bit more clearer :

We Are Headed For A Major Dis-location And It Revolves Around The Dollar



The United States declared economic war on Russia. It is hard to pinpoint the why of the matter but in this author’s opinion it always comes back to US dollar dominance. Russia has made no secret of its disdain for the global pricing mechanism of oil. The chart below shows what matters in the pricing of oil and it has zero to do with shale miracles or over supply.

It is the dollar and only the dollar that matters in the pricing of oil with an exception being an act of nature.-

-And finally in March of this year, Louis Woodhill began a column for Forbes with the following:

“How should the U.S. deal with Vladimir Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine? We should do to Russia what Ronald Reagan did to its predecessor, the old Soviet Union. We should drive them into bankruptcy by stabilizing the U.S. dollar.”

Full Story Here


So Russia is under attack, big deal, we live in the West...well no, because Russia and China use the weak point in the whole system used by the West to control the World...they use the strengths of the whole system against the West.

But first we need to look thoroughly at the importance of the Petrodollar for the West before we can understand the seriousness of the situation. We need to know exactly what the ramification are of an imploding Petrodollar...

...so, here`s a good explanation of the importance of the Petrodollar and how the system works...

...and here`s the actual attack by Russia and China explained...

Is Russia Selling Oil For Gold ?



Very few people understand what Putin is doing at the moment. And almost no one understands what he will do in the future.

No matter how strange it may seem, but right now, Putin is selling Russian oil and gas only for physical gold.

Putin is not shouting about it all over the world. And of course, he still accepts US dollars as an intermediate means of payment. But he immediately exchanges all these dollars obtained from the sale of oil and gas for physical gold!-

-Not so long ago, British scientists have successfully come to the same conclusion, as was published in the Conclusion of the U.S. Geological survey a few years ago. Namely: Europe will not be able to survive without energy supply from Russia. Translated from English to any other language in the world it means: “The world will not be able to survive if oil and gas from Russia is subtracted from the global balance of energy supply”.

Thus, the Western world, built on the hegemony of the petrodollar, is in a catastrophic situation. In which it cannot survive without oil and gas supplies from Russia. And Russia is now ready to sell its oil and gas to the West only in exchange for physical gold! The twist of Putin’s game is that the mechanism for the sale of Russian energy to the West only for gold now works regardless of whether the West agrees to pay for Russian oil and gas with its artificially cheap gold, or not.-

-In this brilliantly played by Putin economic combination, physical gold from the reserves of the West is rapidly flowing to Russia, China, Brazil, Kazakhstan and India (i.e. the BRICS countries). At the current rate of reduction of reserves of physical gold, the West simply does not have the time to do anything against Putin’s Russia until the collapse of the entire Western petrodollar world. In chess the situation in which Putin has put the West, led by the US, is called “time trouble”.

Full Story Here


...and there you have it, and Russia together with China were also prepared for the counter move(s) by the West and signed a currency swap agreement in October to repel the economic attack on Russia...

China Prepares To Bailout Russia

So instead of defending the good old US of A, attacking Putin or cheering him on, making yourself believe Russia and China aren`t close friends, or whatever you like, you will be better off in preparing yourselves for whatever the outcome will be of these big plays of the World Superpowers.

Qaddafi was threatening to do this , too.

It threatens US Petro Dollar Hegemony. Bottom line folks, its about oil and the quoting of that oil in American dollars (Petro dollars)

Wow! Just wow. I can't believe I haven't put two and two together to figure this out myself. But the gold for oil really is brilliant and it makes so much sense. Honestly everything makes more sense. The US gov shouldn't have screwed our entire economical system when they started protons paper money not backed by gold! Every single thing that is happening right now is nobody'a fault except the stupidity of the presidents and congress. (Really though, what isn't their fault)
It's like Putin is saying , "Ha, let's see how far you get working off credit when it comes to a essential fossil fuel"
Great post! Bravo.

There is only one true "economic" asset worth anything on earth. Neither gold nor paper money nor diamonds...it's land. If you want to see who is in the front row. follow the land deals

Wasn't it oil for food? Besides, our man in Baghdad… Saddam Hussein was our puppet, until we burned him over Kuwait.

Thats why he lit the oil wells on fire. Guess he understood where our heart was at.

This is from Zero Hedge - probably a bit exaggerated, but there is truth here -



As The American Dream's Michael Snyder explains, the Chinese are on a real estate buying spree all over America. In fact, in some cases large chunks of land are actually being given to them. Yes, you read that correctly. China is on the way to becoming the dominant land owner in the entire country, and that is starting to alarm a lot of people. Do we really want a foreign superpower to physically own so much of our territory?

There are some that are playing down this threat by making a distinction between the Chinese government and Chinese corporations, but things work differently over in China than they do here. In China, the government is involved in everything. In fact, 43 percent of all corporate profits in China are produced by companies that the Chinese government controls.

In other cases, the Chinese are gaining control over vast tracts of U.S. territory by buying up our large corporations.

...when the Chinese purchased Smithfield Foods, they suddenly owned 460 large farms and became the top employer in dozens of communities all over the United States…

I always thought it was rather smart on the US's behalf to do away with paper money and debt backed by gold reserves. When the default comes it is no longer backed by any assets and simply resets like most bankruptcies and everyone will have to sue and get in line to do so.

They will eventually be paid but with new currency perhaps backed by treasury gold perhaps by oil, who knows perhaps by the same paper they get now, in the end it is in everyone's interest to allow it to happen and reset their own economies at the same time and from the US's perspective all based on a new dollar that is worth more since its backed by treasury gold, creditors would then be paid off with less paper than before.

Don't see WW3 as a result yet, Russia and China still need to harvest some alliances closer to the mainland to carry out a proper war, they need to form closer ties with South American countries and have troops on the ground there, either in joint bases or simply training agreements....look for it.

All economies need to be backed by a physical asset. Barrels of oil are great, as are ingots of gold. As long as one possesses them right?

But land, with all that it can promise, can only be taken by force.

How Petro Dollar system got started under Nixon…


The dollar, no longer backed by anything, became a pure fiat currency and soon began to lose value against other currencies. OPEC continued to price its oil in USDs but then saw it was losing money and started to consider using other currencies, or even gold.

A new big idea was urgently required in order to restore the USD to its former position.

Move aside Machiavelli — enter Henry Kissinger!

The story goes that in 1973 Nixon dispatched him to Saudi for a series of secret high-level talks.

By the end of it, one year later, a deal was made:

“Amazingly, a new system was devised which allowed the U.S. to operate the printing presses for the world reserve currency with no restraints placed on it — not even a pretense of gold convertibility! …This gave the dollar a special place among world currencies and in essence backed the dollar with oil.” - Ron Paul.

In case one has not noticed there is a certain synergy between, U.S. , Britain and the bird in hand Saudi Arabia vs Russia and whoever else feels the need to take a Crimea or make such a stupid move, actually I think it was bait and all planned out , these things come at a high cost, as of late the most desperate acting in the whole power play is Russia, so we have to think, what synergy does Russia and China have that would be easily turned into a worthwhile alliance? none.....
Russia is acting out the part of villain or hero very poorly depending on your viewpoint, the Chinese still follow the tenets of Sun Tzu and many years of warfare and prudence, the time is not right for them to be involved in such foolishness, Russia will make the wrong move and it will all come at a very high cost, they could attempt to attack the West or America but they do not have the capacity or follow through to win any war decisively, it will come at a very high cost, and if you are trying to defeat another nation while your very own runs the high risk of being annihilated what sense would that make?

Well Putin by all measures can't seem to figure it out, he is showing that his mindset has not caught up with reality, he is still living out the days of the Iron curtain and the defeat by the west by virtually quiet methods using diplomacy and economic influence, has he not learned that the West know how to play chess, pull strings, and the hidden alliance of the 3 nations I mentioned, have much more resources and power than Russia standing on it's own, and China would not gamble in such foolishness to possibly wind up with even the notion of a single Nuke falling on them.

By all accounts, the record of the Cowboy or the Custer is much, much more gangster than the bolshevik, the Lenin or the Mau combined no matter what one wants to think, they U.S. would rain down nukes continuously even if he staged a surprise attack of all of the posing that Putin has been doing, China is way too smart to set themselves back, if they were ever really getting ahead.

The only logic in all of this, is that, Putin is running wreck-less and he is going to get Russia in even more hot water if he thinks that the sanctions are what has caused his economy to collapse, they actually never really fully recovered from the days of darkness and defeat following Afghanistan and huge recession post cold war years, much of their prosperity was very overly exaggerated, this is evident if only a few months of sanctions have caused the complete collapse of your economy, if it were robust in any real terms, this would not be the case.

Once Putin started making threats to cut off Gas to Europe that was it, he slit his own throat.... Also most people will not give credit to the chess move Obama by extend the peace dove to Cuba, anyone who keeps arguing about how foolish that was does not see that the next move that might possibly be made, would be Russia once again placing some sort of heavy weaponry or base in Cuba or perhaps trying something even more foolish in our backyard...

That`s because of the power of the Petrodollar, but the Russians and Chinese were aware of this, hence the currency swap agreement. It had nothing to do with Russia its economic fundamentals.

I take the words of Jim and Max over yours about it...

Fracking and earthquakes...they are connected, just not how we think. The Earthquakes are triggered, then the faults are fracked to remove precious metals, which are being stored to back currency....after the collapse. Land is valuable, but mineral rights are more so. Why all the fracking? Why so many earthquakes around fracking zones, which just happen to be on faults? Here is the info of where to find the article, it is not free....or at least I haven't found it for free:

Weatherley, Dion K. and Henley, Richard W. (2013) Flash vaporization during earthquakes evidenced by gold deposits. Nature Geoscience, 6 4: 294-298. doi:10.1038/NGEO1759 



Everything is already in motion, literally. Good for Russia and China buying all the gold, the US doesnt have to buy any, they are reaping it from faults, everywhere they can. So sure, back to the gold standard, away from petrodollar, but the US will unleash a new supply and break the BRICs...that is what I see going down.

Russia is not selling oil for Gold. In fact one thing that is helping the Russian oil companies (although nobody else in Russia) is that they are selling oil for dollars and paying expenses in Rubles. While that does nothing for Russia is does make take the sting out things for those oil companies. Kind of ironic.

Since the west is controlled by thieves/hustlers (the banking maffia) who use Ponzi schemes with debt based money/currency you always get screwed over when you use the western economic system. It is built into the system and you can call it a trickle up Ponzi scheme that destroys the real value by giving money always to the 1 in a million who buys real things for it while everybody pays for it in devaluation of the money we use.

Some people have access to cheap debt like Warren Buffet and can never lose since he always can go all in at the poker table since he has access to all money he needs no questions asked while other people have limited dollar supply. When you control the money system the normal rules of supply and demand do not exists.

When the Petro dollar falls the hyperinflation comes and fiat money becomes next to worthless again like they always where. You can only use fiat money as long as there is a demand in the system for fiat money. That demand is artificially created by brainwashing people that the fiat money is a real value. Take away the oil selling from the equation and the only need for dollar is to pay back the loans that people have made in dollar.

Russia and China is going towards gold money. At least there is something physical there that makes the Ponzi schemes of the western bankers less possible because people can see the manipulation that many can not under fiat money.

Everybody buys gold in dollars you would be silly not to with low Gold prices and a strong dollar and a way to skirt around santions. However the fact remains Russia is not selling oil for gold nor turning anything but a small percent of that cash earned by oil into gold.
