More importantly, Russia is the only nation capable of taking on the US and not afraid of doing so. Putin has stated many times that he wants to price Russian resources in multiple currencies and avoid the dollar.
When Saddam started selling oil in Euro’s the US attacked Iraq shortly after that, when Libya started to state it wanted to move to selling oil in Euro’s Gaddafi was taken out. If you look at the reasons behind any war, there is a money trail.
Let’s examine things from a psychological perspective:
1) The US is desperate and they are doing their best to portray power, but instead it is coming off as weakness. But a desperate animal is bound to do even more desperate thing;
2) Now that China and Russia have joined forces, they have become a lethal combination. China has the money and the economy and Russia has the guns and firepower.
Individually, it would be hard for them to take on the US, but combined they are now in a position to challenge the US and they are currently doing so.
How will things play out?
Russia has clearly indicated that they will no longer be pushed by the US and so has China. Unfortunately for the US, its stupid actions pushed China and Russia into each other’s arms and this makes them invincible. Hence, expect the number of bilateral deals conducted that bypass the dollar to increase at an exponential rate in the years to come.
The dollar will be dethroned and the masses will finally see the Emperor for what he really is; a naked fat bald old man, with a huge belly, no clothes, bad breath and one that has not taken a shower for months on end.
Then end game won’t be pleasant, but don’t sit around waiting for that day, because you could be gone before it comes. Hence, focus on today for that is all your control. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come.
There are many opportunities to latch onto while you wait for the demise of the dollar. For example, the Russian ruble makes for a great long term investment or you could buy two companies that look great Vimpel Communications (VIP) and Yandex (YNDX).
