Scaring with savages: rising global tensions in a fiscal perspective

24

A fairy tale is a lie, but there is a hint in it, a lesson to a good fellow.


As one of NATO architects George F. Kennan said,

“If the USSR disappeared into the depths of the sea tomorrow, the American military-industrial elites would continue to work without any changes until they invented some new adversary. Any other option would be an unacceptable shock to the American economy. "

Sharp US budget deficit


In this article, we will consider two phenomena - the acute budget deficit of the United States (most recently - 2, and now - already 3 trillion dollars a year) and another Ukrainian hysteria of recent months.

It would seem, what is common between these phenomena?

Just think, where on the planet can you get two or three TRILLION dollars a year, so that no one shouts "guard"? This is extremely difficult!

Let's figure out what options are visible here.

First, some new levies.

But America is a democracy, and inside the country you won't be able to work out that much. The scam with carbon credits and the like is also going on neither shaky nor roll. The client went scared.

Secondly, it is an increase in exports.

But what export?

American tech giants already operate duty-free in Europe. They will no longer be allowed into China - another digital ecosystem. Was история with the imposition of a trade deal by Trump on China, but even there it seems again neither shaky nor shaky. China does not want to buy what it does not want to buy.

Of the few remaining options, consider export weapons and energy carriers.

Arms exports have been pushed furiously lately - this is all sorts of sabotage of competitors (Russia and France in the first place), and an increase in the degree of tension in the world.

Taiwan and Australia have already been successfully pushed on, which have turned from China's favorite business partners into almost front-line territory. Australia has been particularly cynical about $ 60 billion nuclear submarines. To wage an atomic war with yesterday's main business partner, apparently.

Now let's switch to European theater.

Since the end of the Cold War, European countries have been mercilessly saving on military spending.

How do you put them on?

Another Ukrainian hysteria of recent months


That's right, you need a threat.

What?

It is clear - what kind. Play the concert Brutal Massacre over Fluffy and Freedom-loving Ukraine (ZveRPSU).

After that, it will be possible to push through many countries to purchase weapons, frightening them with savagery. Following Taiwan and Australia, so to speak.

The tension in the Donbass, the United States and Britain can play quite freely, and raise hysteria in the media - they are ready to do this for free, for fun. A bloody and revealing conflict is needed, and it would be good if American weapons show themselves well in this terrible meat grinder.

But what will not work out in reality can be corrected through the media, as a last resort. Fierceness from the Russian side can be provided by Ukrainian right-wing radicals, for example. All of them, however, will be killed during the conflict, but the top can then be taken out and reused.

It's clear with weapons.

What about energy?

First of all, we are talking about gas here.

American gas in Europe is not very competitive - too expensive. Given Germany's energy problems, for example, the switch to American gas could mean that the entire margin of an already troubled economy will go overseas.

The first calls with the idea of ​​"Freedom gas" failed, but the United States has an extensive network of sincere friends. For example, some German “greens” took the same courses at Yale as Navalny and Volkov, as well as the activist of two Maidans, Vakarchuk, and activists of the “Arab Spring”.

In short, how to suck in the gas?

There is one option.

First, to raise prices by an artificial crisis (already done), bring your gas to the market, and then cut off the previous supplier.

How?

See above about zwerps.

And here, by the way, one more moment.

During the previous Olympic Games in Beijing, there was a war on 08.08.08. During the games in Sochi, Maidan overthrew Yanukovych. The upcoming games begin in February in Beijing.

If the US team does not perform well, it will be an unwanted signal to the whole world, in part - who is now in charge. So the US is already starting a boycott with the motivation "for the Rid Uyghurs, our brothers." It turns out not very natural. Zverp is in short supply. It is advisable in January to have time to shock the world with the crimes of totalitarian regimes.

In general, a beautiful solitaire, even too beautiful.

But in today's situation, the United States is more dangerous to allies than rivals. But in five to ten years, when all the Swedes and Czechs will be overstocked with weapons, there will be a different alignment, another fight will be outlined.

Or maybe it's all not true. Think, compare, check.

      It is a very likely scenario, and perhaps not Donbass, but Transnistrian. In Moldova, even the US Ambassador is a career military man. In any case, even with an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean, the situation is quite tense. Yes, and flights of reconnaissance mattress aircraft throughout Ukraine, as at home. Let's take a look.

      Well, if the guards of the railway, to the place of work by train, pay from their own pockets, then everything is correct.

          It does not work for us, even the police used public transport at their own expense, now for 5 years all residents of the city travel for free (except for electric trains, although before leaving the city they are free of charge).

    How is this solitaire like preparing for a bloody mess!
    The most "cool" is that besides the ability, desire, "chief sharper", to shuffle the deck in their favor, everyone else will have to stock up on either "angelic patience" or a big club !!!

      As soon as in the state, armament begins to act as a priority - wait for war, this can be seen in the pre-war years of World War I and World War II.

        Well, yes, the screams that "guns instead of butter" are needed are certainly not born among the layman, they are being introduced there, very interested cadres ... well, then, everything can be painful and bad, this is how it happened, as it was planned !!!

            Those who scream the loudest do not rush to the front line ... neither breed, beat the weak, run from the equal, and from the strong immediately pick up the cosmic speed of running.

    My purely amateurish opinion: weapons and gas are profitable but small! The main game revolves around oil, that's where the money is! The United States needs to take control of the European oil market, Arab oil will go there, and in the United States, finally, shale oil will unfold in full growth! More oil is sold under US control, the energy market needs more dollars, more greenery can be printed bully
    The environmental theme, I think, is also being pushed under the printing of dollars what

      To separate us from the European oil market, the United States needs to force Europe to rebuild its factories from Russian oil to other grades. And since the times of the USSR, Europe has become attached to our oil.

          But what about the proletariat in the Eurool, on these generally violet, the most important thing is migrants. America bombs, but Europe saves. I have not been to Europe for a long time, the Europeans at least stayed there in some areas.

      I agree, and a lot of developments in different countries are in their hands, gas is not in their hands. Although gas in Europe is in the first place, and therefore the states "jump out of their pants", oh, how proud of "Potok-2" is Russia itself.

    Khrushchev learned that Molotov was told at one of the meetings in the United States that they had in Idaho.
    there is a man who revives the dead, and he replied that in the Union near Ryazan there is
    the guy who overtakes the jet. -Why are you fluttering your tongue, what if they
    demand? - So what, Molotov replied, I’ll say let my necrophile go ahead
    present. - What if he will revive anyone? - Nikita. if he revives Stalin, you are cosmic
    overtake the rocket!

    How can we avoid getting closer to the West again? This is the main task ... To keep your distance. And then they will strangle in their arms ... We barely survived in the nineties .. and the new generation does not even remember
