Do you guys remember that time when the Euro was introduced, and how it replaced the Dollar as the global currency, thus sinking the United States and the dollar in to mediocrity?
Yeah, me either.
I remember them talking about it though. And by "them," I mean high ranking European officials back in the 90's.
We'll get a republican in the white house in 2016, and all will be well.
The US has already targeted several of the oligarchs who run Russia's oil industry; one having to sell his interests as the company took a big hit on the stock markets; Russian banks have huge debts of $650bn which they now cannot refinance due to American sanctions and action on business with Russia.
Russia's South Stream pipeline to Europe has also been stopped (even if Siemens have recently signed contracts to supply equipment)
Just because the US hasn't sent troops on the ground or isn't forcing a military standoff does not mean nothing is being done.
