The US backed Ukraine government needs to gave open and free election. The President that was removed by coup had over 80 percent of the vote. The guy sitting in tge chair is a national socialist. What don't you understand
The Russiabs did this all wrong. They will not support a band of socialist that took part in a coup and they only allowed each person to have one vote. You know, one man one vote. Perhaps they should allow our Supreme Court have the final say. Like the way they did in the 2000 presidential election or should we have them re write Obama care and then declare it a legal law. Perhaps tge Russians should have issued voter registration cards or perhaps they should take a que from us and have no IDs and you can vote as much as you want.
I am not that smart but let's see what happened here, a government is taken over by force, the members are nationalist socialist the west says this is ok, after all the government that was electected does not mean a thing. The territory in question according to international law has a right yo vote on their future, and we say that bite does not count? Oh and the territory was originally given to a Russian state the Ukraine in 1954 now the citizens after 60 years want to be returned to Russia and they get nearly a 95% vote by the people to return to Russia and now that vote dies not
Maybe the west is going to send troops in to liberate the Crimea. You can watch all tge edited news as they try to convince you are fighting to defend liberty and justice all. Perhaps you will be convinced we are killing the bad guys. Of course tge bankers will look at tge situation and even they will say they can make money on this crisis. You know, maybe fix the libor rate or maybe we can bundle up some bad securities. Do you know we have more social programs then Russia? Maybe we should tell the Russians they did not gave to do what they did. After all they really had to do was spy on their own people
In parliament, the acting defense minister said that of some 41,000 infantry mobilized last week, Ukraine could field only about 6,000 combat-ready troops, compared to over 200,000 Russians deployed on the country's eastern borders. The prime minister said the air force was outnumbered 100 to one. The ukraine paratroopers are Russian. They will not fight each other. CIA screwed this up lol, and our President was on the wrong side of the trade. It amazes me how he became President. Oh well, hope you like the new economy it will be here for tge rest of your life
VLO goes out tge same way very soon. This time VLO lows will be lower
Next situation is the vote in the Ukraine where 90% want to stay Russian...........same rules apply
Russia takes Crimea, and residents are 99% for russia to take control. Russian troops take the rest of Crimea as Ukraine soldiers join Russian forces in Crimea............
The Crimean people are exercising their right to self-determination, which is a fundamental principle of international law.
There are circumstances when the right to self-determination trumps the right of a state to territorial integrity, another principle of international law.
Ukraine's present circumstances -- the aftermath of an anti-constitutional change of government and the imposition of an unelected regime adopting unconstitutional measures -- give "just cause" for the Crimean people to exercise their right to self-determination.
Their right to self-determination is strengthened by the fact that they were already citizens of an autonomous territorial entity - the Autonomous Republic of Crimea - which has its own constitution, and this constitution must also be upheld.
When this market crashes, and it will............wall street needs to go it alone without any bailouts.....I am certain if there are any bailouts.......we will see rioting in the streets...and rightfully so
Well Crimea is now Russian territory, the citizens are getting pasports because all of them are Russian Citizens. The Ukraine are having massive protests against NATO and the EU. They want to be Russian, the stupid young fool with a ribbon around his neck needs to get out of dodge real fast lmao. I love what the our President said.......here is the quote. "Citizens do not have the right to vote to determine their sovereignty however it is acceptable to over throw your government "
I say this because the US acknowledges the the legitamcy of the new government. The new government only represents about 5% of the people. So we backed a bunch of lunatics.roflamo
Like I said I am out if tge market as of this moment. Russia just froze all American finacial assets in Russia and they will shut of NG to Europe. This blows out tge price on NG. Guess who uses NG to refine. It is impossible to hedge the right way this quarter
Game changer.......Venezuala just got 7 billion in aid from China and Russia..........Russia just offered Ukraine 28 billion........nato and the US offered 1 billion..............looks like a dump to me
that gap between wti and brent is now $6.26................Monday it could be $5.26....yesterday it was completly different......seems like a bear trap..........especially if the US says.........the hell with this Ukraine thing............who wants to back a minority on the ground when they are outnumbered 9 to 1
(Ukrainian 77.8%, Russian 17.3%) realise krushev was Russian Leader from the Ukraine.....Ukrainian and Russians are one in the same. Right now pro Russian citizens are rallying in the capital of Keiv. They are holding signs that have the world NATO and there is a big red X through it. Seems to me this is like Florida asking to Join the soviet Union, and the residents of Florida saying, what are you out of your mind?
Remaining population.......... Romanian 0.8% (including Moldovan 0.5%), Belarusian 0.6%, Crimean Tatar 0.5%, Bulgarian 0.4%, Hungarian 0.3%, Polish 0.3%, Jewish 0.2%, Greeks 0.2% and other 1.6% (including Muslim Bulgarians, otherwise known as Torbesh and a microcosm of Gotlander Swedes of Gammalsvenskby.........it appears if elections were held today........the Russian population would win and want to stay in the Soviet Union.................as for the Crimea..........it is 100% Russian...........elections will be held..............and they will go to Russia...............who is going to war over a 18 by 18 square mile piece of dirt.............As for the Ukraine.........Remember the capital of Ukraine was the Capital of Russia.......for 300 years..........seems like a real minority group of people declared themselves a Government in the Ukraine.......As of this point the 77% Russian population is heavily armed...........
A U.S.-Russia war probably wouldn't end up a draw, but it would be a bloody mess. I do not see the US fighting Russia alone......however I do see China and the Russians teaming up against us. Either which way the US comes off the grid as the number 1 super power....you will be living in rubble for a thousand years
There was no shorts.........and they were no longs according to the option board yesterday.......No one really has a position on VLO Option trading has dimished 90% on VLO which is very strange.....Not sure if i ever saw this behavior in the stock market
