Good points Mountain , I also believe as you do . Russia and China may take advantage of a crisis , and are in the best position to do so than other countries . we have to be more concerned about countries like Mexico , because they are already poor , and poor is poor , they will not notice any difference in their lifestyle , but may decide to loot what we have . Canada is a joke , no offense to Canadians , but nobody fears you . They will have their own problems to deal with when both the nanny states of the US and their own collapse , although they may handle it better ……I dont know .
