I too was of the mind that the dollar was in peril, but reading Martin Armstrong's opinion on the subject, it's pretty clear that won't happen - at least not any time soon. The dollar, if you can believe it, is the only safe haven for currency. Can you think of any better? Ruble? Certainly not. Yuan? Would you put all your eggs in that basket? How about the Euro? That is almost as bad as the Ruble.

That's where I'm at too. Russia.
People even believed Saudi Arabia was trying to hurt shale oil in the US.. hahaha.. Watch the oil companies in the US cut out all the small shale guys who don't have huge money reserves while Russia gets choked out.. Meanwhile Gasoline is easier to make with cheaper oil, and Gasoline is Americas biggest export.
Not really sure on why the fake reasons (North Korea) but I see Sony is playing along. People need to understand that in a Cold war you are constantly putting the other King in Check, without taking any of the pawns..
Well we have our subs here..
Yea you have your subs, but look at our space plane..
We can move oil through Turkey..
We lower oil prices..
Blah blah blah until it seems no one has a trump card and the game cools off a bit.. Problem is that this game has a time limit and the time limit is how long the dollar can last.. Something has to give before then or the US will move to extreme measures.
Not sure who has more hands to play and who can back out of the game and when.. Maybe we are seeing the power plays that must take place before China and Russia get too powerful..
I don't think we have enough missile defense for this kind of game.. I'd be watching for any news about the power grid.. see if you connect any power failures to hacks.
I am of course Very cynical.
maybe they're telling the truth.
Yeah it's almost too obvious. This certainly isn't what they want us to believe it is.

You must have read some of my posts
We are definitely tracking along the same line of thought.
he film received attention for its negative portrayal of Kim Jong-un. In June 2014, threats of "merciless" action against the United States were made if its distributor, Columbia Pictures, went ahead with the film's release. Columbia delayed the planned October 3, 2014, release to December 25 to digitally alter thousands of buttons worn by the North Korean military. In November 2014, the computer systems of parent company Sony Pictures Entertainment were hacked by a group that the FBI believes has ties to North Korea. After leaking several other then-upcoming Sony films and other sensitive internal information, the group demanded that Sony pull The Interview, which it referred to as "the movie of terrorism".

It became obvious to me a few days ago that N Korea didn't do it, especially with emails in broken English, that was a good addition though. That's just the way Im thinking now. Im pretty good at spotting a liar and Obamas speech was just a little too good. Maybe Im wrong but I wouldn't doubt it.
The end result will be a govern mentality run internet, that can "protect" from these "attacks".

IMO NK had nothing to do with this...
The hack and subsequent attacks were from more capable enemies...
I guess we can call this a Silent War ?
