Russia adds another feather to its cap in war against the dollar

In the business world, there are three ways to conduct a transaction.  First, there is a negotiated plan where both sides achieve exactly what they want and are happy with the terms of the deal.  Secondly, there are deals that involve one side offering incentives to the other side, giving the second party a short-term advantage in the hopes by the first party that they will win out in the long-term. Then th ...

U.S. sanction Fail: Russian’s made billions off of Obama’s gambit

Ahhh chess.  It's a game where masters succeed and the amateurs fail.  And for centuries, those who have mastered the ability to think and plan several moves ahead have always been able to transfer those skills into real life situations and are then able to manipulate those who are limited to just reactionary responses. This has been the case between Russia and the United States over the past year, and in p ...

Russo-Sino relations become one as largest energy deal signed

During the cold war, there was one thing the United States could rely upon as it strove to be the sole defender against global Communism.  That ace in the hole was the fact that the two largest Communist powers could never fully achieve an alliance against the West, and would quite often dedicate energy and resources against one another more than against their true enemy which was the U.S.. However, when Ru ...

Russia counters U.S. rhetoric by claiming genocide in Ukraine

In a proxy war, propaganda is a key tool in swaying public and global support towards ones cause.  North Vietnam was a master of this, and by the end of the conflict with the U.S., America was completely disheartened and seen by the world as a lost aggressor. So as Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry play Monday morning QB from the confines of the White House, Russia, which actually has troops st ...

Ukrainian nationalists put bounty on head of Russian journalist

In a civil war, there is no such thing as civility, or human rights.  Even the U.S. invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan demanded certain 'rules of engagement' which protects civilians above and beyond the normal course of achieving an objective.

Rumors circulating that new Eurasian Zone currency will be the gold Altyn

As empires rose and fell throughout the annals of time, one remaining constant seems to always prevail... that being an empire's currency. From ancient Greece, the Drachma is recognized today in books, films, and even by a modern civilization that pines for better days in the wake of economic collapse.  Then there was the famous Roman Denarius, which was segregated in value through the use of different meta ...
