Specter of Civil War in Ukraine

What the West triggered, the Russians want to finish. Libya's rebels were strongly backed by US fire power. A tad difficult to yell foul? I find it difficult to understand when Palin and Sarkosi expressed concerns that EU went ahead with a treaty that was antagonistic to Russia without either mitigating the threat or underpinning the threat?
Hitler didn't have another superpower hustling it's old allies away and restricting trade. The EU inclusion of Ukraine was a significant alienation of Russia from resources and peoples. Unnecessary when a trilateral including Russia would have worked better for all. Push too hard and there is inevitably a group who are going to be disenfranchised from their cosy positions. Frequent in history and the EU and USA are ... Surprised? A structured trilateral would have shifted things at a manageable pace rather than rushing Ukraine into a Greece dependency. Putin is focused and experienced and Obama didn't think Putin would react to people kicking over a strategic strong point...
Instead of a joint deal EU and USA tried to pull Ukraine away from Russia, a traditional involved neighbour. Since much of Ukraine and most of the Crimea is Ethnic Russian - there was bound to be a tear. At best it can only be described as a poor gamble, but better would be daft and inflammatory.
The property industry affects every segment directly and indirectly. Everything and everyone needs a time and place to be. Even hamsters have a "home" (sometimes in a cat) but beggars and Politicians have a place even in a shelter. Construction is a vicious or fortuitous multiplier in that when the demand for property goes above the stock the kick off is considerable with demands for skills, materials and consumables growing the whole economy. The current Quantitative easing is not including the property industry in their systems showing they don't know their business....
Excluding Energy and Food, sheesh..... The energy has risen in a tight market and we wonder why other spending has been restricted. Families have cut and cut and cut but there has been product engineering removing value from the base products. I would say that there isn't deflation, rather the specter of deferred inflation.

Sovereignty is being yielded by the Obama's and Clinton's to the UN. The UN is a group of agenda driven autocrats who run when they hear a bang. They don't fulfill their mandate as they work to power balances. Yep - I fear them because I am not an idiot. Wild inflation is a historically proven reality if you keep printing without base. It is catastrophic and destroys savings and pensions in a cyclone of govt theft. Socialistic control, like with printing money, the messes before won't happen because they weren't doing it right and we are doing it right because it is us. Socialism has failed to deliver again and again and again.

Half truths and outright lies used to attack straightforward logic. Obama's Pension of 1.5% is below inflation so you deposit money in his scheme and they eat your capital. Whoopeee another dumb , really dumb, idea.

I understood what Obama stood for when he first ran and was pretty unimpressed. Hillary was shafted in the run up by the Democrats and would have done a heck of a lot better. Hillary is a #$#@ working in a toxic environment. Never liked her but she would have done better than McCain who I liked. The biggest problem is the bear sleeping in the living room, it is waking up and has been skirted around by Republicans and Democrats. Both pandering to the cheap popular issues - Gay/Lesbian/Islam/Trade/welfaries and a whole shebang of others when if they don't tackle the biggies then they will be dirt poor Gay/Lesbian/Islam equally hustling with welfaries for devalued dimes.Get the economy going, get the thing moving so that the people can have jobs.... The world has been shaken to its very economic foundations, there is a new structure forming and a very definite lack of trust in USA and its $.
Oh wow,,,,,, what more can anyone say?

Building on a morass of deceit has required more deceit and will require even more to get going until it collapses. Firm foundations are necessary, they were never in Obamacare.
