This is pretty convincing and not very complicated. Follow the oil/gas. It's only 6 minutes long;

Don't see how it's related to OWS but it doesn't hurt to know what's going on.

Maybe the real reason why Wall Street is pushing for war against Russia so fast and so hard:


“ The US doesn't have that much time in order to prepare for a serious weakening of the US dollar on the global stage and, conversely, for a serious strengthening of regional currencies' role. The maximum amount of time they can count on is 18 months. During this period they must prepare for a situation in which their main instrument of global control, i.e. the control of the circulation of the main global reserve and trade currency, will become seriously weakened,”

Russia has stopped trading oil in dollars. That is what Iraq did just before they got invaded.

Exxon, and the other big oil companies in the the U.S.A. are institutionally owned by Wall Street. Bingo; connection. Yes, Wall Street is very much driving the war over the Ukraine. Its not a Ukraine-Russia conflict. Its a Wall Street versus Russia conflict. The poor Ukraine is just stuck in the middle getting trampled on. Just like all the other wars going on in the Middle East right now. And as for us ordinary Americans, they are using our tax money, draining our bank accounts, and stealing our homes to pay for the crap, not to mention sending our good young soldiers off to kill and get killed in fighting dirty wars.

Yes indeed, what is going on in the Ukraine and the rest of the Middle East is very much an OWS issue.

prison plantet?

Ok so IBT has a Reuters story that confirms gas reserves found in Ukraine. the U.S. Energy Information Admin says shale gas deposits and Shell has agreed to begin exploration.

So you want us to choose between Oligarchs?

Why would Wall Street want war in Ukraine?

You silly fukers don't make any sense. If there is war in Ukraine we can expect European gas exports get cut. When the power goes out people will be out of work. Once they are out of work they stop spending money. When people stop spending money the companies with stocks < as well as those without stocks on the exchange > take a hit in profits. A slump in profit means a slide on the market index.

It's the same argument as that in favor of increased minimum wage.


So you guys are all down with the oligarch who steals nfl rings huh?

silly fukers

So if the U.S. were so skillful at engineering the kind of social unrest that sent the Russian backed Ukrainian President running back to Mother Russia

  • Then what does that say about OWS?

This is a post from the Tree of Liberty forum;

Ring, Ring

Putin - "Hello"

Swiss Bank - "Mr. Putin, we regret to inform you that we have frozen your assets per the Americans request"

Putin - "Really?"

Swiss Bank - "Yes sir. It isn't personal but we have to do what the Americans say"

Putin - "Are you sure about this"

Swiss Bank - "Yes sir. We are sorry about the inconvenience"

Putin - "No problem, I will be driving down with my tanks to discuss this with your upper management"

Does Putin stash in Swiss banks? Are these 'sanctions' personal sanctions? Have to wonder.
