Trade War With Russia

History shows us how many wars actually start.  It begins with currency wars where they attempt to upset each other's financial system by adjusting the value of their currency to make their products appear cheaper.  Next they will apply tariffs to raise the price of the products coming in and to make their own products more competitive.  This can end up progressing into a full scale trade war.  That usually goes on for a while but can ultimately may lead to a shooting war.

In short, good relations with your neighbors is the best bet against your armies shooting and killing each other.

According to the news our relationship with Russia has deteriorated to a low point not seen since before 1991 when the Berlin Wall fell.

Now today we are reading that we have moved into a "full-scale trade war" with Russia.

New sanctions on Russia which US President Donald Trump has signed into law are tantamount to a "full-scale trade war," Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.

Medvedev also said in a Facebook post that the sanctions showed the Trump administration was utterly powerless.

"The hope that our relations with the new American administration would improve is finished," he wrote.

I'm sure by now that most of my readers know to watch Russia because they are one of the named players in the Ezekiel 38 coalition which continues to gather strength.
