    We maybe seeing the collapse of the Russian economy and the Ruble. The sliding oil prices are killing there economy.

    The black swan is rampaging out of control. There will be unintended consequences for just about everyone including the US. Putin has repeatedly warned Obama not to mess around with him. But then Obama is a lawless fool and he does whatever he likes.

    Brulen, I really do not think Obama is smart enough to have done this! Obama didn’t do anything to make oil go into the $50+ range which is what is taking Russia down.

    I have to disagree with that freedom. Obama operates most effectively in the shadows. His transparent government is a funnel for all sorts of black ops all over the world.

    I agree with Brulen, this adminstration has tried to pressure Putin financially for months. Now with OPEC dropping the price of oil it’s hard to say whom is orchestrating events. This could start a war or someother unforeseen action. I seriously doubt Putin will let Russia crash with no consequences to other parties

    They have propped up oil prices for so long now I find it hard to believe there is not some back room deal that is causing the price of oil to fall.

    Since oil is 50% cheaper many of the oil producing countries will be in trouble financially so they will flood the markets with so much oil to hold there finances that It will be a long time before it goes up. The other problem is the world has slowed down so they are buying less oil.

    Obama – classical narcissist and a post turtle. He doesn’t do anything his handlers don’t tell him to do… he’s more concerned with being seen as the President than actually being the President… loves the trappings and the bowing and scraping, because it feeds his ego… but he doesn’t much like putting in the work.

    However, he has surrounded himself with some fairly smart people. Evil, devious, petty, maniacal people… but they’re not stupid. Especially Jarrett. She rules the US the same way Rasputin ruled Russia… the power behind the throne…

    Low oil prices hurt Russia and Putin.

    Cui bono?

    We do… well, specifically Obongo does. He’s got a beef with Putin for Putin making him look like the lightweight fool he is… repeatedly. If oil prices tank, it’s to Obongo’s benefit twice over – he gets to take credit for low oil prices (which keeps Joe Baggadonuts happy) and hurts Putin. A twofer.

    I smell a deal.

    The only way we could have pulled this off is to somehow cut a deal with the ragheads. They wouldn’t agree to the price of oil tanking unless there was an even bigger payoff down the road for them…

    Whatever it was we promised, it was substantial…

    I really dont think Putin will be hurt all that much , it may put some pressure on him for a time , but like you said …….he is much smarter than Obummer and his cronies , he will overcome , and find a way to get even . Also , your talking about a nation , unlike the US , that is not a stranger to hardship , you take away our corn flakes , and cell phones or TV , we will think we are going to die . It would be an easy matter to blame it on the west ( and its true ) , and the people would except that .

    Tolik, remember that the young Russians have grown up with the corn flakes, cell phones and TV’s so they will get mad and not like the hardship which they have not lived like there parents so Putin may have some problems with them.
    I do think you are right that the U. S. in a collapse 90% will die without there iPhones!

    Yes but they are also forced to join the military at 18 years old , and outside the major cities , is a lot of poverty .

    Yes you are probable right that they do not own iPhones. Having to join the military will change you.

    A cornered animal is a dangerous animal. A man with nothing more to lose is a dangerous man. Putin isn’t just going to turn off the lights and fade into oblivion. The world has just grown much more dangerous.
