Like, instead of bombing the pentagon we destroy it from the inside? The enemy occupying the highest levels of governement???? Makes for an awesome story. But it reality, after connecting many of the dots, it can send a shiver down your spine.

Exactly. And the timing couldn't be any worse.

The economy is bad the world over. But Russia's stock market fell only because Putin's disagreement with Michel (sp), the coal company. And he accused them of corruption and then investors got spooked. It's only temporary.

Russia's stock market fell but not because of a crisis.

us on the other hand..and you know our companies are all capitalist. American companies are safer but..you know there is no law of patriotism preventing them from, taking bids from other country's governments, like China. So when I see a company like Blackstone who just acquired New Skies satellite, and weapons defense technology, taking bids from the Chinese govt, even though it's just 3 billion, I get a little concerned.

The only stable commodity is oil. And we don't have it. Heavy taxes on oil companies would be disastrous I think.

..Russia invaded Georgia. They say Russia wouldn't risk a confrontation with the US over, say, Ukraine because they rely on trade for their economic growth..but what happens when our economy takes a nose dive? Russia already aggressively invaded Georgia.

So we have Russia invading Georgia..Russia pissed over our missile defense program. Russia testing new missiles. Iran testing new missiles.

Is Ahmadinejad right?

Russia and Venezuela just recently announced that they are political allies against America.

More info on the alliance:

"A Russian navy squadron set off for Venezuela on Monday, an official said, in a deployment of Russian military power to the Western Hemisphere unprecedented since the Cold War."
