    The US is now a major player in the oil business with all of the shale oil drilling in the plains. I heard that industry becomes unprofitable under roughly $60 a gallon. The low prices aren't only hurting Russia. Look at the stock market the past 2 weeks, it's lost almost 1,000 points.

    Lets face it...nothing we really do will effect oil prices. They're set, cartel style, by OPEC which is really about 16 people. Other than super extreme things like everyone quadrupling their oil usage or completely stopping their oil usage arent really going to have an effect on their target prices for shit.

    No sane person want's Russia to collapse. This is how wars start....This is how guy's like Hitler come to power. Exactly why we bailed out Russia in the 90s

    You take a big, proud, industrial nation, with a huge military and give them 'nothing to lose'...It usually ends poorly for everyone

    Very dangerous game being played here
