Personally i think Rickards and over 98% of the other financial-USD collapse proponents are skewed in their logic
the delayed Syrian operation for regime change has been changed... for a new battlefield tactic that involves leaving the present Syria---- along with
every other North African, Eur-Asian nation in the Middle East sphere or in the Central Asia sphere in severe danger of being over-run by the
unleashed & barbaric Jihadists/AQ/al Nusra militant Muslims...
rather than the USA war machine as the engine of their demise when the red-laser light eventually shines on them
The longevity of the USD is being indefinitely extended by the new Øbama shrewd scheme of arming & financing the many factions of
militant-Jihadist-Islamists with scads of USDs
So by Intimidation
of being attacked by well financed but barbaric Muslim militant factions IF that nation does not completely rely on USD
trade & commerce and do business with all the USA paid militants flush with USDs... then that nation is subject to an insurrection or 'Arab Spring'
The USA still has a petro-dollar exclusive contract with thwe Saudi monarchy
the USA has constructed a defacto War-USD with the dozen or more rebel-militant-factions of the MuslimBrotherhood-AQ/al
and this war class of Muslims will be able to demand that their USDs be worth a lot more than what the devalued forex dollar is redeemable for...
in fact countries that refuse to accept these USD...as China and Russia seem to be preparing to do--- then those nations will be themselves targeted
by the USA mercenaries of chaos & destruction...
the Jihadists are not going to be denied the spoils of their payments...
hence the USD now has a two decade or more extension of life...
and not a swift demise that these economists intellectually reason will unfold...
Intimidation by AQ-Jihadists and multiple militant Muslim groups will force the USD to new higher valuation instead of devaluation by printing
Trillions.... the USD is now protected by a diverse and multi-million strong Militant Islam who will protect their own monetary prosperity and arms
this scheme by Øbama has outdone the neo-con/zionist plans for regime changes in a progressive step-by-step order with a dark-cloud covering 1/3 of
the planet all at once..
more bang-for the buck by Øbama,,,huh?
