I expect that a few people already realize the ploy of reducing oil prices at the behest of the US and its controllers is to weaken Russia’s economy and subdue it into submission to the will of the NWO Cabal. It says a lot that the West have sufficient influence to achieve this but that is another story.
Where the West’s problem lies is that the US Dollar is well and truly overinflated and is susceptible to a correction that would be catastrophic. It is often referred to as the Petrodollar because it is/was the main currency for international trade of oil and gas (and a lot of other commodities), probably the only reason for the surprising survival of its inflated value to date.
The failure of the West to bring Russia into disrepute by falsely blaming them for the downing of MH 17 over Ukraine and falsely blaming Russia for invading Ukraine, has led to this economic attack which, as suggested in this article, is also bound to fail. It is unfortunate that the general public fall for the “official” press and Western leaders’ rhetoric and propaganda, simply hypocrisy and blatant lies.
Worse still, our PM, Tony Abbott, has allied Australia with these atrocious, unjustified attacks on Russia, Ukraine and the Middle East. Imagine what should be our and his embarrassment at Tony Abbott’s official statement in front of him, that Putin was responsible for the MH 17 incident when it was known then, by the rest of the world, to be a fraudulent accusation, and is now proven to be so. [Sorry, got off the track 🙂 ]
Whatever the rest of the world think of Putin and Russia, there is a need for clear thinking about the whole situation. It is not patriotic to support your country/government if they are indulging in lies and war crimes and that is exactly what is happening here. It is foolish and will be regrettable.
So, to the source article, By Dmitry KALINICHENKO (Russia), on ‘Oriental Review‘:
Accusations of the West towards Putin are traditionally based on the fact that he worked in the KGB. And therefore he is a cruel and immoral person. Putin is blamed for everything. But nobody ever accused Putin of the lack of intelligence.
Any accusations against this man only emphasize his ability for quick analytical thinking and making clear and balanced political and economic decisions.
Often Western media compares this ability with the ability of a grandmaster, conducting a public chess simul. Recent developments in US economy and the West in general allow us to conclude that in this part of the assessment of Putin’s personality Western media are absolutely right.
Despite numerous success reports in the style of Fox News and CNN, today, Western economy, led by the United States is in Putin’s trap, the way out of which no one in the West can see or find. And the more the West is trying to escape from this trap, the more stuck it becomes.
What is the truly tragic predicament of the West and the United States, in which they find themselves? And why all the Western media and leading Western economists are silent about this, as a well guarded military secret? Let’s try to understand the essence of current economic events, in the context of the economy, setting aside the factors of morality, ethics and geopolitics.
After realizing its failure in Ukraine, the West, led by the US set out to destroy Russian economy by lowering oil prices, and accordingly gas prices as the main budget sources of export revenue in Russia and the main sources of replenishment of Russian gold reserves. It should be noted that the main failure of the West in Ukraine is not military or political. But in the actual refusal of Putin to fund the Western project of Ukraine at the expense of the budget of Russian Federation. What makes this Western project not viable in the near and inevitable future.
Last time under president Reagan, such actions of the West’s lowering of oil prices led to ‘success’ and the collapse of USSR. But history does not repeat itself all the time. This time things are different for the West. Putin’s response to the West resembles both chess and judo, when the strength used by the enemy is used against him, but with minimal costs to the strength and resources of the defender. Putin’s real policies are not public. Therefore, Putin’s policy largely has always focused not so much on effect, but on efficiency.
