Obama’s Latest Tactic: ‘Isolate Russia’

Obama’s Latest Tactic: “Isolate Russia” (ZeroHedge, March 3, 2014):

After once again clearly delineating that Russian “costs” are set to surge, and hopefully he means more than just the drop in the Micex and its artificial, paper wealth effect which Putin couldn’t care less about as long as crude is soaring…

  • OBAMA SAYS INCIDENT WITH UKRAINE WILL BE ‘COSTLY’ FOR RUSSIA

… the US president has laid out his latest tactic:

  • OBAMA SAYS HE’S CONSIDERING ECONOMIC STEPS TO ISOLATE RUSSIA

Does he also mean to isolate Russian gas from entering Germany, which just happens to be reliant on Russian imports for a third of its natgas needs? He goes on.

  • OBAMA SAYS RUSSIA ON `WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY’ IN UKRAINE

Which of course is written by the winners. And the punchline:

  • OBAMA URGES CONGRESS TO PROVIDE PACKAGE OF ASSISTANCE QUICKLY TO UKRAINIAN PEOPLE; SAYS SHOULD NOT BE PARTISAN ISSUE ON CAPITOL HILL

Maybe time to send Obamacare to Kiev: so many young, strapping participants just waiting to sign up? Or maybe it just time to raise minimum wages in the Ukraine while giving the local population the safety of mind that comes with investing in the “no risk, guaranteed return” MyRA.

  1. Beyond stupid. The nation being slowly isolated is the US, not Russia. In Jan 2010, 100% of all international transactions were completed in US dollars. Today, thanks to the advent of electronic currency, that number is now less than 50% and falling fast. The US has abused its status, run roughshod over the world, set the Bush doctrine into daily politics, and has done everything wrong possible. From invading nations that had done nothing to deserve it, to endless printing of the once-respected world currency to enrich the few at the cost of the entire global economy, to becoming a oasis for crooks and criminals…….the world is moving away from the US. They are fed up.
    So are the people, but many are too dumbed down to do anything for now, but when the safe food and water shortages start…..watch out. All civil rights are gone, the police can now search anyone’s house without a warrant…..not even mentioned in US media.
    Russia stopped using the US dollar along with China in November of 2010 after seeing the success of the Sucre, the first electronic currency taken live by the South American Trade Alliance in July of 2010. It is much easier to trade using your own currency, letting the electronic currency translate the value than convert to the dollar. It also cost the US in lost transactions.
    China and Russia went on and recruited many other nations to drop the dollar, and move to using their own currencies with an electronic currency to translate value. Turkey, much of the middle east, South America, African nations……..all quickly dropped the dollar to the new system.
    India and Japan dropped the dollar after another foolish round of sanctions against Iran who has been doing very well for years, regardless of the lies told by US media. Iran already accepted all currencies……..the US has done it to itself with insatiable greed.
    New Zealand and Australia just dumped the dollar, too.
    Isolate Russia? These idiots live in a fantasy world. They act as if it were still 1964……..
