Fear Comes to the Russian Heartland


www.newsweek.com

The Kremlin evidently sees worse trouble ahead. In December it shelved plans to retire 280,000 Army officers (part of a sweeping military reform). A long-expected reduction in the number of Interior Ministry troops was also abruptly canceled. At the same time, the Interior Ministry set up a special command center in Moscow, packed with surveillance equipment designed to deal with street unrest.

The biggest threat lies in cities like Magnitogorsk—company towns that are dominated by a single industry. Russia has an unusually high number of them: a quarter of the population is estimated to live and work in one of roughly 1,500 "monotowns," as they are called. They're relics of the old Soviet-era command economy, dating back to Stalin's efforts to create an industrialized nation overnight. They are especially vulnerable in this frightening global downturn. "Our plant has been the main employer in this city for 80 years," says MMK (the steel plant's Russian initials) spokeswoman Elena Azovtseva. "When this plant stops, everything here stops."


Russia fears growing unrest due to the economic slowdown. Already there have been riots due to the levying of new taxes. A former KGB colonel is even saying that they are expecting mass riots. What does this mean for the west? If Russia blows up, will western countries follow?

The same preparations are being made here in the USA. I believe that this economic tsunami has not just been foreseen, but was pre-planned, even engineered. People will need to be cold, hungry and terrified in order to accept the total and global control that is planned for us. The PTB are in the process of creating those conditions, and are prepared to deal with the angry mobs that will result. In fact, they probably will create the angry mobs themselves so as to have excuse for a draconian military clampdown. Should be fun.

Well, it is likely we will enter heavy riots and some anarchy.
More likely tax revolts and violent marches. Kind of like the L.A riots but worse.
If this 'stimulus bill' fails.....so will the world come down with it.
