Obama's always a few steps ahead of Putin. In six months, Russia will be bankrupt; he won the second col war just before it heated up. That's a genius
at work: Obama totally outplayed the Russians.
this is true because russia is dependent on oil and gas for revenue. 70 percent of russias revenue is oil and gas. their economy is slightly larger
than mexicos if you want to know how big their economy globally is.
because russia does not control the global economic and financial systems.
they dont have to go to war militarily to defeat russia.
because russia dependent on oil and gas their achilles heel.
they just have to keep dropping the price of oil and gas and increase sanctions to bankrupt the oil and gas based economy of russia.
which is what is happening.
in 6 months russia is bankrupt.
its why there is this posturing by putin with his military.
he hopes he can leverage syria to remove sanctions on russia which will fail.
eu and usa already said no to that, its why syria peace talks failed.
people who say russia will attack europe, wrong again.
europe is 50 percent of russia's oil and gas revenue
if russia attacks, they will stop buying oil and gas from russia and russia goes bankrupt faster.
putin is in checkmate and he knows it. his achillies heel, one trick pony dependent on oil and gas.
putin gambled and lost.
now they just gotta wait it out and russia goes bankrupt or putin has to capitulate.
easiest and fastest and cheapest war to win, economic war.
