With a country on the brink of civil war, crying out for a diplomatic solution--and actually with a diplomatic solution in place crying out for organized referendums to plot a sane course of action--the USA has fallen back to its default option--"bomb bomb bomb"--having sent first the CIA director on a secret mission that did not stay secret, then the Secretary of State, then the Vice President to Kiev to egg the quite possibly illegitimate Ukrainian government on to military action. The Russians are apparently sending a column of "peacekeeping" military in from the east.
This morning's first reports are here.
One of the Rothschilds once said, "Buy on the smell of gunpowder." The stock market seems to like it. More on this below.
We will see if Putin's position is as strong as he seems to think it is. I think he is counting on being the leader of a global wave of blow-back against the US from the G20 - USA - UK to support his action.
This is clearly not the time to "unite" the Ukraine by military means. Those Ukrainians in the east who were "neutral" or merely desiring a peaceful resolution will never forgive the US and its puppets in Kiev for this, I think.
Our CIA-puppet president is proving to be stupider than he looks. Of course the underlying plan is to bankrupt the Ukraine--and possibly the EU--and swoop in and gather up the assets. We'll see how that works out.
America is doing what it does best to defend its currency, sowing chaos abroad. According to Martin Armstrong, the US stock market will benefit as well, as hot money pours in from China (collapsing) and Europe. He thinks the Dow will double by the end of 2015. This is not investment advice, but reportage. You invest at your own risk, unlike the Wall Street banks, who also invest at your risk.
