What we are witnessing in the Ukraine right now is the death of the US as a world power. Why you may look at the situation as a big political game and be correct this particular scenario has played out into a much larger slap in the face than many may realize.
For all intents and purposes the U.S. is beginning to realize it has absolutely no power or influence in regards to the actions of another powerful nation especially Russia or China. No matter how large our military, no matter how much we sympathize with a struggling people or support their goal the U.S. is now chained by it's debt and the other major players know it.
Our hands are tied.
Certainly any sanctions, embargoes, or interruptions in trade would hurt everyone involved but outside of the West no other nations are addicted to debt at such a level that they cannot function without it. The United States particularly is a nation held together through welfare debt alone and without it would more than likely explode into chaos and Balkanize into warring factions over night. As I have said time and time again China and Russia have seen this coming for decades and encouraged it. Now is the time they reap the rewards of their labor.
Debt is evil. Debt will turn our children into slaves and our "leaders" into beggars. A country with so much debt has no power just as a person with debt has no power with those who hold it.
We could sail the entire US fleet into the Med. stack every plane in European bases and mobilize troops to counter Russia's moves but in the end we would be destroying the United States as it stands right now. Even if our forces managed to win a huge victory it would simply be a hollow shell that would shatter in a few weeks at most with nothing to sustain it. America would simply collapse from within and chaos would reign as each group clawed at the others trying to get "theirs".
Such is how debt manifests itself eventually. Nothing is free on this earth it is all paid for one way or another. All any person, group or country can do is push the final bill back they can never eliminate it or stop the day of reckoning from coming.
Of course it doesn't help that we have such a weak, spineless, racist President either but that will only serve at this point to quicken the Balkanization. No leader no matter how smart or strong can turn this situation around now. The debt has tied our hands.
At this point what will happen is basically nothing. Russia will occupy the Crimea which is the only thing they want anyway. The Ukraine may be split up so the EU can foot the bill for the Western part for a while and Western politicians will talk big and say they stopped Russia from taking it all. Putin will talk more softly now and ease the worlds fears and everything will go back to normal. For a while. Until the next move is made and either China or Russia again pulls out the debt card and checkmate any move the U.S. makes.
Just another example of the long slow slide.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
