all well and good.. but as Russia has already said the yanks are agreement incapable.

and the polyticks in other countries are ownef by the yanks and will sell out their own people. Predictions will be hard to work out as too much greed and stupidity

Thanks:)

Yes, you're right.

That's why I wrote: "No threat" OR "Treaty"

Two scenarios possible.

it all comes to the US dollar..this shit that is going on is to support it..

saddam stopped selling oil in dollars..had to go

gadhaffi stopped selling oil in dollars..had to go

yanks can just print and bribe.. warmonger.. anything.. has no cost to them as US dollars dont have to be earned by them...when the dollar iz not reserve currency anymore it all stops.

putin is an honourable man doing his best for Russia..fending off the thieves..

It is a tough time coming for all

Thanks Alex. I’ve re-read this piece a few times now.

One question still comes back: why did / does Europe go along with the American plan when it could turn out really damaging to them? Why don’t they say no?

Wait for my next Economics and Empires article. It should solve that question.

Thanks! Even now in 2024 it explains a lot! After the bulling of Trump and the retirement of Merkel the EU was so weak that Biden takes control easy, I think? T

I dont believe that Russia is holding back or deliberatly extending the conflict.

Russia thought they would get a settlement in the first couple of months. Ukraine unexpectedly decided on self suicide. Russia simply didnt have have enough troops to defeat Ukraine, now backed with western weapons. Extending the war has made Russia look weak, encouraged escalation and increased death & destruction.
