The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Understanding the gas wars.....

Russia and the West are facing the worst crisis since the Cold War. According to US Special Envoy Amos Hochstein, Washington’s goal is to reduce Russia’s gas market share in Eastern Europe by 20% by 2020. Russia cannot be allowed to build a gas pipeline that would bypass Ukraine, as it would 'pose a threat to Europe’s energy security'.

The US fracked gas industry views this conflict (created by Washington) as a big chance to sell its more expensive product to Europe but must first drive Russia out of the market.

War could result.

Very important documentary.

A routine press conference of the US energy secretary (former Texas governor Rick Perry) and the Russian energy minister has surprisingly turned into a lecture on Washington’s superiority and exceptionalism as the US official faced a question on sanctions.
