This geopolitical assessment of the emerging ties between Europe and Russia (and China) provides a broader background about the fears that the transnational capitalist deep-state, that rules the Empire, have about this potential relationship. It's "lights out" for the Empire if this happens. Our masters may want to risk a nuclear war to prevent it from happening. Are we going to sit idly by and watch it happen?
The prospect of Russia meeting more of the EU’s growing energy needs, while China’s high-speed railway system delivers more low-cost manufactured goods, suggests that the world’s center of economic gravity is shifting fast increasing the probability that the US will continue on its path of irreversible decline.
And when the US dollar is inevitably jettisoned as the primary means of exchange between trade partners in the emerging Asia-EU free trade zone, then the recycling of wealth into US debt will drop off precipitously sending US markets plunging while the economy slips into a deep slump.
Preventing Putin from “creating a harmonious community of economies from Lisbon to Vladivostok” is no minor
hurtle[hurdle?] for the United States [and its Empire]. It’s a matter of life and death.
