To let the US know

there is another big dog marking their territory.

To destroy the dollar

and the control of the west through the petro dollar.

Why Doesn't USA

bail them out - we have all this money floating around everywhere....

A military base?

Iceland may have to grant the Russian military a base, or at least access for their commercial aircraft.

On the Monopoly board of the NWO...Russia is a "rebel" player.

I agree

I agree and I think that most countries that the Neocons demonize are countries that cling to their sovereignty (financial and physical). I suspect Bush has a much much greater knowledge of monetary policy than he lets on. He is a master manipulator. He plays the role of "stupid cowboy" perfectly. He is a better actor than Al Pacino.

No bailout, lending money

with a higher interest rate than the interbank rate, so Russia to profit from the interest. I suppose if Iceland would go under and not being able to pay back the debt over time, Russia may claim Iceland part of its territory and develop it. It may also bcome a prime offshore location of olichargs?

I doubt it that Russia would bail out Iceland

for goodwill... but do wonder if it might be one little tiny step in connection with their plans to draft a law marking out Russia's borders in the Arctic, where it is competing with the West for control of vast energy resources.

Well, Russia is now playing ball and Russia, China, EU, Britain, and the US are now re-drawing boundaries and land! They are already setting up the NWO.

This whole thing is starting

This whole thing is starting to sound a little like Red Storm Rising (by Tom Clancy).

Iceland played a key strategic role for Russia in that book.

Submarines

Iceland is a bottleneck and choke-point for the Russian Northern fleet, a friendly government may quietly back out of SOSUS or other naval traffic monitoring agreements with US/UK/NATO.

Of course...

maybe they're just being good neighbors.

Strategic Power Projection

Militarily Iceland would provide Russia significant air bases and naval bases next door to the American continent. As the USA declines in strength, Russia would be stregically positioned to build itself into the next Unilateral power across the EU and toward the Americas.

Also they can now buy Iceland and cover their losses from selling Alaska to the USA.

its a good mobilization and

its a good mobilization and resupply area for Expansion.... Think of it as thier Guam or Phillipines...

Bjork?

ROTFLMAO

Oh that was rich.

I love Bjork...

i'd bail her out anyday.

Russia wants to be the next

Russia wants to be the next empire and have the reserve currency of the world...

I read somewhere that Russia might consider converting their ruble to a gold-backed ruble.

If they do that, the world will flock to their currency.

Personally, I'd love for Russia to back their currency w/ gold, so the one world government plan crumbles faster.

military base?

when we are talking about empires

and their motivations remember playing the board game Risk? look at the map.

Don't think so

Icelanders were against having a US base in Keflav'ik from WW2 until 2006, even though we were getting money, free service to our commercial air fleet and assistance in water rescue missions over 90% of the people there hated that we had a foreign military there. The Prime minister has said that in the talks that they have had with Russia there is no other strings attached other than Iceland will pay them Interest on the debt.So far I haven't found anything on any news website back home that says anything Russia is demanding in return.
