Chess is a game of strategy and a strategy is also to let your enemy in unknown, the time plays against USA and not against Russia, i hope for the sanctions that will bea turning point in near future against USA.
Currently Media is warmongering against russia, accussing russia to be the major force against Ukraine (Fascist Junta) while the majority of EU thinks otherwise and this is the reason why more and more of the bride public are more and more concerned about US/EU, because of such poor blatant propaganda of Psaki,Kerry and more and more proof of US involvement but zero of Russian involvement, while we know US invasions with millions dead we get propagandized that the Russian invasion has Zero dead people, it does not matter if people count that as an Invasion or see it as it is true democracy.
The point of this Ultimatum is what? The Ape give Putin the ultimatum to calm down the alleged "Russian" agents and all Anti-kiew/anti-fascist in their propaganda called Pro-Russian, down or they will sanction Russia with this time sanction that actually will hit part of the economy.
There are only 3 Options you will see:
1) Putin will announce something to show publicly he bows down to US will, that will kill everything for every single russian and other nations, firstly reputation and after presidential period maybe even a Pro-US puppett, but this option has the lowest possibility, the reasons for this are. If they wanted to do exactly this case they would have done it in Georgia, where Russian military was much weaker and by far easier hitable like with the GPS shut down during 888 war, further back then, RT which is the main reason even in the WEST, that people believe less and less in American warmongering Propaganda. RT is globaly the best and the only reason why the Mainstream Informationwar monopoly of the West was broken. The third reason why Georgan war in 2008 would be easier for the goals of the evil empire of US, is that backthen Pro-American oligarchs were much more common inside the Kremlin of the Jelzin,Saxarov and other scum oligarch families which were holding lot of power and influence on the policy.
2) Putin will not announce to bow down to US "ultimatum" and the Sanction kick in, this will be the turning point just in few month and not in Russia but here in EU zone,especially in France, which are more reliable when it comes to protests than here in germany where only vegetables are living. We have here in germany almost 40% energy that comes from russian gas, since early 2013 the energy prices hove doubled in most cities and this will be even harder. But this will be blamed upon Putin in any case, regardless of the Sanction oppossed on Russia for no Import of Russian oil/gas to Europe the Media will twist it that Russias fault, this will be a crucial point for Information war to show the truth.
The point of Revolutions is, there are only 3 Things need to bring masses on the streets, No food or cut of food supply or make it drastically expensive, No more Disinformation (Television, MEDIA distraction to summe it up) and the last thing a corrupt government acting against its People. One of this 3 points the US will bring upon EU in any case, Russia has no options to target the other 2 points only bring Information to destabilize this factor of Western Disinformation of own people, the case of a Corrupt government is already existent, people who are not politically educated or involved don't realize it yet. The soup has to boil little bit longer untill economically Germans are targeted again for Ukraine than this will be the right opportunity for everyone who wants to break Germany away from US, the problem is one factor, there are no and i mean not a single person in entire German political sphere that is competent or of on the payroll of Russia/China to take this place, like US is doing since early 2000 century.
3) Sanctions are a threat and will try opposse them but EU will split partially from it and only part of sanctions will kick in so that one deception is among Western Mainstream Media watchers created, that they will argue about Unity like they do for the past 5 years, like the Western MSM Propaganda focused on "Fuck the EU" and not the content of conspiracy plans of the US in Ukraine leadership.
Remember there are things that can be created just to distract the wide mass like they did with Ukraine from the defeat of US invasion plans in Syria, so they give Putin his medicine and tell him he can not interfere with Military. The Policy and goal of such events is to keep the brain busy with other body parts pain, when the Leg hurts, injure your finger and the head will focus on the pain in the finger.
Currently i see the 2nd Point as the most plausible. The West is a falling Empire that is an undeniable fact and the US lives through the 5 stages of Grief of its own death.
Last 5-10 years it was Denying that it will be no more in our lifespan, today since Syria and especially since BRICS boycott of Petrodollar is Untertaker who will put the nail into the coffin, the US has dug its hole itself and provided through its Atrocities and empirial enslavery of humankind under private banks the coffin for that.
The day the USA splits apart and the day humankind kill those traitor politicians and private banksters is the day i will make sure that not only i will never work again on this holyday, but this day will become a worlds holyday for all people.
