after 12 years of war in Afghanistan, Nato cannot defeat 200 Taliban fighters and you think they are going to scare Russia. Putin must laughing his #$%$ off.
the Russians have never lost a war, I am sure they will smash anyone on their home turf. This is not Iraq or Afghanistan or Somalia, nato can only pick on small poor nation.. certainly not Russia.
"NATO will answer Mr. Putin". Really, just like they did in 2008 when he annexed South Ossetia and Abkhazia from Georgia. Face it, the west is broke and the debtor cannot tell the CREDITOR what to do, it is the other way around.
the Chinese, the Russians and all foreigners are dumping US debt and buying hard assets like: PM, real estate, agricultural land, etc.. IT IS THAT SIMPLE, the party is over.
the only buyer of the US debt from now on is the Federal Reserve. So what happens:
1. if they increase the interest rate to attract the buyers the economy will COLLAPSE
2, if they continue printing and nobody else is buying the debt the DOLLAR will COLLAPSE.
in either case the mother of all CALAMITIES is coming, there is no solution with this GIGANTIC amount of debt, and a shrinking working population.
BUY SILVER AND GOLD, the reset is coming soon.
The far right Ukrainian group blew up a gas pipeline in Crimea, and they promised to blow up all pipelines that go through western Ukraine to Europe. We will have a full blown war. Putin is going ALL IN given that his population supports him.
not before $2000, Gold is ridiculously cheap because of the naked short selling by the banks, that is why the Russians and the Chinese are buying hand over fist. Soon the western banks will have to either deliver physical gold or default, either way gold will EXPLODE.
herzlickstein, there is a civil war going as we speak in Eastern Ukraine, it is reported that there deaths and many injuries, after Sunday election in Crimea, you will get CRIMED if you don' t cover.
A community organizer and a pot head CANNOT outfox an ex KGB head.
Foreigners Sell A Record So is this the proverbial beginning of foreign dumping of US paper? Could Russia simply have designated a different custodian of its holdings? No, because as of most recently it owned $139 billion in US paper , or well above the number "sold" and a custodial reallocation would mean all holdings are moved, not just a portion. For another view, here is what the bond experts at Stone McCarthy  had to say:
We don't have a ready explanation for the plunge in custody account holdings. One thing that is striking about the drop is that the last several days was not a period of heavy market buzz about "central bank selling" of Treasuries, at least to the best of our knowledge. China and Japan are by far the largest holders of Treasuries, with holdings of $1.269 trillion and $1.183 trillion in holdings at the end of December, respectively. China's holdings are more skewed to central bank holdings. Selling of Treasuries would appear to be at odds with China's recent effort to depreciate its currency, although on March 5 and 6 there was a brief correction in that trend., Over $100 Billion, Of Treasurys Held By The Fed In Past Week
in the just reported latest data, for the week ended March 12, Treasurys held in custody by the Fed dropped to $2.855 trillion: a drop of $104.5 billion. This was the biggest drop of Treasurys held by the Fed on record, i.e., foreigners were really busy selling.
Putin is taking Crimea back like he did in 2008 with South Ossetia and Abkhazia from Georgia, and there is nothing anybody can do. This is why one should be buying Gold, Silver and SPPI.
