    Did Obama save the dollar by taking western Ukraine from Russia? [W:41]

    If the situation in Ukraine does not result in a military conflict between the U.S. and Russia, Obama will have successfully taken western Ukraine from Russian control. This combined with the crippling effects of the current sanctions that have been imposed against Russia, along with the huge decline in the price of oil means that Russia's Eurasian Union project has been stifled for a long time. The Eurasian project would have fused European and Russian resources into a formidable union that would rival the economic power of the U.S. and thus would have severely eroded though not entirely destroyed the power of the U.S. dollar. As such Obama may have saved the U.S. dollar.

    It's amazing. SO CALLED "conservatives" like to rag on how people they don't agree with never have anything positive to say about the U.S. But then when I say something positive about the President of the United States, they attack with their hate and venom. AMAZING!!!!

    Outside of the economic sanctions (which had no effect on Russia's decision to not completely take over Ukraine), what exactly did Pres. Obama do?? The economic sanctions have nothing to do with the dropping of the price of oil (that was done by the Saudi's to make shale oil too expensive to extract and get those wells shutdown, so that they could raise prices once again). Europe and Russia would have never joined forces in your pipe dream of the Eurasian project, since Russia isn't dumb enough to want to a part of the joke that is the EU. I know that you are an official cheerleader for the President ("GIVE ME AN 'O', GIVE ME A 'B'..."), but at lest TRY to maintain some level of integrity, since the OP is almost embarrassing to read.

    What makes you think that no direct military conflict with Russia will secure Western Ukraine from Putin? I think the reaction you're getting in this thread (or lack thereof) is your viewpoint is so.....uh.... how can I put this without being overly critical or callous.........

    "Out in left field" ???
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I you believe that, that is very good, because quite frankly I think your viewpoint is so warped by ignorance, that your mind has things backwards. In other words, one should believe the opposite of what you say.

    Anyone who thinks that reaction to a thread in this forum means truth needs to have their head examined.
