A New Front In The New Cold War

41

As Syria becomes a new front in the new Cold War between Russia and US/NATO, these weekly discussions between Batchelor and Cohen take on even greater importance.

If you've been following along since early 2104, then you know how truly dangerous this situation has become. The opening of a possible new "theater" in Syria only serves to complicate the situation and deepen the crisis.

With no end in sight, it looks like Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen are going to need to keep these weekly discussions going indefinitely. And it's a good thing, too, as this crisis only seems to worsen with each passing day.

Must be my lucky day. Think I will stay inside, this month!!!

Interesting read about a ag shortage in Mexico.

"I went to Azteca bank, which is where I normally buy and they said they had none. Azteca is owned by Grupo Salinas which is effectively owned by Hugo Salinas Price’s family. Hugo, as many might know, is a multi-billionaire and one of the biggest proponents of silver. He has even tried, without luck, to get silver put back into the monetary system in Mexico"

At the 30:08 mark

Professor Cohen actually mentions the end of the dollar as reserve currency and how this crisis has driven Russia east and away from the dollar.

This is the primary reason we began to follow this situation so closely 20 months ago!

Re: At the 30:08 mark

I mentioned it yesterday, but there are A LOT of Chinese here in Moscow. And it's not just me noticing it--it's the family who are saying it every day when we are out and about. Mrs. SS commented that it is more than tourism as she has noticed a lot of Chinese on the subway. Her words were that it seems like they live here. Certainly, it's anecdotal and Moscow is fairly international, so take it for what it's worth. But it seems like a Russia-Chinese partnership is DEFINITELY observable here beyond the words of the politicians.
