The IMF has now been drawn into the U.S. Cold War orbit. On Tuesday it made a radical decision to dismantle the condition that had integrated the global financial system for the past half century ... By doing so, it announced its new policy: “We only enforce debts owed in US dollars to US allies.”
This will hasten the breakup of the international monetary system, and possibly lead to outright kinetic war with Russia.
The situation is being made worse by morons like Senator Ted Cruz, who is threatening to use nuclear weapons against ISIS:
Republican presidential campaign rhetoric is red-hot regarding Islamic terrorism, with Sen. Cruz suggesting the use of nuclear weapons to see “if sand can glow in the dark,” a threat even more troubling than Donald Trump’s call to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the U.S., writes Robert Parry.
You can read the rest @
... also by Vladimir Putin, who suggested much the same thing:
Vladimir Putin has said he hopes nuclear warheads will not be needed to deal with Isis, after Russia launched cruise missiles from its submarine at the militant group in Syria.
... and by Hillary Rodham (a.k.a. Clinton to some of you), who apparently wants to keep nuclear weapons "on the table" when threatening the sovereign nation of Iran:
NO ONE WHO EVEN SUGGESTS USING NUCLEAR WEAPONS SHOULD EVER BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES !!!
