Fourth Seal: War Because It’s The Economy Stupid!

 Every picture tells a story, doesn’t it? Our president went to APEC in China and look where they put him? How embarrassing! Nobody puts Baby in the corner! Can you imagine any other American President standing in the “Wives’ Club,” at a prestigious event?

America has become the laughingstock of the world, because while John Kerry was negotiating futilely with Iran, the Russian Bear signed a huge agreement with these anti-Semites. Then, the world began to crush Russia economically by driving down the price of oil.

Only fools tease a hungry bear possessing plentiful nukes. Obama is goading Putin into war.

Medvedev Warns Of "Unlimited Reaction" [Read: War] If Russia Cut From SWIFT - See more at: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-01-27/medvedev-warns-unlimited-reaction-if-russia-cut-swift
While nations around the world continue to de-dollarize, Russia signed into law its anti-crisis plan today (though details will not be released until tomorrow). Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, however, was quite vociferous in some of his threats, warning The West that the "Russian response - economically and otherwise - will know no limits" if Russia is cut off from the SWIFT payments system.
The Road To War With Russia We're not only on it; we've already arrived – See more at: http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/91007/road-war-russia

If it looks like a war, acts like a war and smells like a war, it may just be a war.  The US has been waging economic, financial, trade, political and even kinetic war-by-proxy against Russia.  The only question is why?

From the perspective of Russians it seems clear that neocons are driving the US ship of state, and that they are simply not the sort of people with whom you negotiate in good faith or whom you trust.  The neocons believe they have the upper hand, they are part of the most powerful country on earth, and they never negotiate preferring to dictate.

The only problem is, the US is rapidly losing allies and friends the world over and it's not nearly as powerful as it used to be, thanks to a profound failure to invest in itself (education, infrastructure, etc)

In Part 2: Why No One Should Want This To Devolve Further, we analyze the most likely responses the West's bear-baiting will generate from Russia. The short story is this: in none of the outcomes will there be clear victors.

There is simply no good rationale for the geo-political risks being taken right now. Leaving us with the critical question: Why are we willing to let our leaders play nuclear "Russian roulette", for stakes we don't agree with?

Russia Signs Deal With Iran To Build 8 Nuclear Power Units – See more at: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-11/russia-signs-deal-iran-build-8-nuclear-power-units
With this year's APEC meeting in China having just barely concluded, where the biggest news was not the inability of the US to make any material headway in trans-Pacific trade (who needs trade when you have a printer?) or that China is "willing" to import even more NSA bugs courtesy of Cisco and Qualcomm, but Russia's second "western" mega gas deal with China, as well as the following photo-op of course...[above]

In other words, as the US does everything in its power to halt the spread of nuclear power in Iran (for peaceful purposes or otherwise) Tehran, in clear defiance of the US, just agreed with Russia to develop not one but 8 new nuclear reactors.

Western nations want to chain 'the Russian bear' – Putin – See more at: http://rt.com/news/215523-crisis-payment-bear-chain/
Western nations want to chain “the Russian bear,” pull out its teeth and ultimately have it stuffed, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned. He said anti-Russian sanctions are the cost of being an independent nation.
Beware the Cycle of War Turns Back Up Next Week – See more at: http://armstrongeconomics.com/2014/11/13/beware-the-cycle-of-war-turns-back-up-next-week/

We have to be concerned that the Cycle of War turns back up next week. NATO has reported that Russian troops have now invaded Eastern Ukraine. In the Cycles of War Report we wrote that target will be November 19/20, 2014 (2014.8871) where we should see some escalation in activity. It appears this may be correct and on point. Caution should be advised next week. Martin Armstrong

10 Shocking Quotes About What QE3 Is Going To Do To America – See more at: http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/10-shocking-quotes-about-what-qe3-is-going-to-do-to-america

#5 “Quantitative easing—a fancy term for the Federal Reserve buying securities from predefined financial institutions, such as their investments in federal debt or mortgages—is fundamentally a regressive redistribution program that has been boosting wealth for those already engaged in the financial sector or those who already own homes, but passing little along to the rest of the economy. It is a primary driver of income inequality formed by crony capitalism. And it is hurting prospects for economic growth down the road by promoting malinvestments in the economy.” Anthony Randazzo

Stocks stand alone in the miasma of other asset classes that seem less impressed...
My opinions: The DOW hit 17,614.90 today. Why? QE3 has caused a temporary bump in the Dow, but that will end soon enough. Printing presses don’t drive economies, they bury them…in debt. Saudi Arabia is pumping more oil even though oil reserves are higher than at anytime after 1931. Somebody desires war!

Embarrassment hurts, but a Great Depression kills. And, war kills more. President Obama’s weak-kneed presence at APEC will unfetter the dogs of war, right after economies begin to crumble. Watch Europe to fall first, and then Japan. Watch, for North Korea will launch the first nuke. When that happens, get off the American coasts! The headwaters of the Mississippi will be the safe zone, because no one is foolish enough to nuke the breadbasket of the world.

When Putin has had enough of Western shenanigans, he will cause a smaller country (Read: North Korea) to begin WWIII, a skirmish will ensue, and then the hungry Russian Bear will strike back.

"The Fix Is In." Mario Marillo

When he broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living being say, “Go!” I looked, and there in front of me was a pallid, sickly-looking horse. Its rider’s name was Death, and Sh’ol followed behind him. They were given authority to kill one-quarter of the world by war, by famine, by plagues and with the wild animals of the earth. Revelation 6:7-8 (CJB)
Shalom!
