The thing which everybody seems to be missing

So this is the Russian end-goal: to unseat the USA from its role as a world hegemon. And that goal implies a much longer, bigger and more sustained effort that just force the freaks in Kiev to the negotiating table. Among other things, this goal implies that Russia must:

1) Force the Europeans to fully realize the outrageous price they are paying for being the obedient and silent vassals of the USA and slowly drive a wedge between the USA and Europe.
2) Force the USA to admit that it does not have the military might to punish or, even less so, "regime change" anybody they don't like.
3) Encourage China and other Asian powers to openly stand with Russia in demanding that international law be adhered to by the West.
4) Gradually replace the dollar with other currencies in international trade and thereby slow down the financing of the US debts by the rest of the planet.
5) Create the conditions for Latin America and Africa to be able to make choices about its future and replace the current monopoly enjoyed by the West in setting the terms of North-South relations.
6) Present another civilizational model which openly reject the current Western paradigm of a society run by small and arrogant minorities.
7) Challenge the current liberal and capitalist economic order embodied in the Washington Consensus and replace it by a model of social and international solidarity (call it "21 century socialism" if you want).

All of the above can be summed up in one word: re-sovereignization.

What's wrong with any of this?

You would expect this in a FREE world, wouldn't you?

I'm sure our founders did.

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!

We have the might, just not

We have the might, just not the will nor the financial backing.

My guess is that it might actually be a good thing if we were taken down a notch. Maybe then we would mind our own business around the world and let some other nation mortgage the future of their people in order to meddle in the affairs of others.

Simpler is better?

"Gradually replace the dollar with other currencies in international trade and thereby slow down the financing of the US debts by the rest of the planet."

1.
Russia is run by the same Money Monopoly POWER that ran the world before World War I and II, so the ruse is a world wide free money market competition that will force the quality of money up and the cost of money down world wide.

2.
Russia is not run by the same Money Monopoly POWER that ran the world before World War III, so there will be a world wide free money market competition that will force the quality of money up and the cost of money down world wide.

If 1 is true then World War III continues as planned.

If 2 is true then people keep what they earn and people reinvest what they earn into investments that earn them more, instead of 1 being true where people have their earnings stolen and people grow weaker as the criminals grow stronger by the second.

If that is still too complicated for you, or you, or you, then you can learn better.

If you prefer more of the same blind obedience to falsehood without question, then that investment will pay off in a big way.

The Falcon is a Credible Source for News About Eastern Europe

I visit his website everyday to find out what is going on in the Ukraine and Russia (see: http://vineyardsaker.blogspot.com/ ).

He bases his commentary on detailed objective facts devoid of opined rhetoric as found on so many other alternative news sites.
