    Smile Cuban missile crisis

    Main reason the crisis avoided was a montiary based resolution that the Soviets would receive a huge gold payment named "Gold Cross", thus eliminating the need for the real issue of the value of the ruble being completely worthless during that common age. Russia couldn't hold their revenues based on their spending needs to hold a socialist society, the gold making them viable to hold their state together.

    US is now in a state of mineral deprived flux outside of normal boundaries and the elimination of our current resources threatening our ability to hold a common state of the dollar. Add in the fact that our current dollar devaluation now creates positive outside currency value increases and increases our current growth via our trade imbalance creates a situation of a long-term debilitating internal crisis.

    The more we mine & recover our own resources, the less we gain. Basically you need to bet on the current industrial cycle of oil production to force outside parties to destabilize all our local based mining efforts in the name of environmental / pollution systems even though we have no possible chance of renewable energies gaining a foothold to supply any significant current need.

    The call for energy independence will lead to outside forces gaining a lead in the taking of our lands, starting again with Russian intent to dominate the markets with their own vast resources we so boldly now embrace. This pattern started with the Cuban missile crisis and continue to be honored through today.

    So we basically sacrificed our current needs ~50 years to be in existence today, a delayed nuclear effect. It's a cycle of desperate politics, lead Democratically that's currently being supported. Green energy is Russian energy imported to our shore, enjoy the party in charge.

    PS China is Russia with mass manufacturing improvements, Communism with a slight twist to exploit US consumers.

    No one will care until grocery/gas prices skyrocket and nukes start flying.

    Timely thread, though!

    When an Oscar winner is calling Tarrantino a hero and extolling him for his courage for walking through fire...

    Let the nukes fly.
