Yesterday, when describing the latest US developments in the Syrian "liberation" and "WMD elimination" we pointed out that the "use of war as a culmination point to end a depression is nothing new. Just look at the first Great Depression. And just like then, the only cost to perpetuate the myth of the Keynesian and monetarist religion and the pillaged wealth of the 0.01% status quo elite, will be a few hundred thousand innocent men, women and children. Or, as they are known in the Beltway, collateral damage. That is, unless, Putin decides to retaliate."(Putin Responds To Syria Escalation: May "Reinforce Naval Grouping In Mediterranean" Following US Buildup)
Moments ago Interfax reported that Russia is starting to pre-emptively, for now, retaliate.
