    Do you call everyone a racist? It seems to play an important role in your name calling.

    Re: Russia Announces Decoupling Trade From Dollar

    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.

    Out of curiosity, what would your favoured choice of president do?

    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.

    Pressure China and Germany to back out of this deal with Russia behind the scenes. Respond more decisively to the Russian aggression against Ukraine.

    Pressure on Merkel has already happened, that and Putin lying twice to her about crimea and Russian troops being on Ukraine's borders.

    This is really Germany's struggle, moreso than the United State's. Really, we're taking a hit for coming to Europe's aid, so it ought to be a foregone conclusion that Germany will not stab us in the back by making a deal with the Russians.

    They should never have allowed Russia to annex Crimea. They should have supported the Ukrainian government before the annexation occurred.

    Ukraine would have fought to keep Crimea if needed, Russia would not have tested us if we had shown strength rather than weakness to begin with.
