In my introduction to this series, I spoke of the maneuvering that happened before World War II. And, it’s clear to me that we are involved in the same kind of maneuvering now.
The problem is that we are in a much, much weaker position vis-a-vis other countries. Before WWII, we were exporting oil and resources to the world. Now, we are importing – or having to depend on expensive domestic production. And, we are dependent upon foreigners for our power and prosperity.
All of that has put us in an exceptionally vulnerable position – a position that Russia will know how to exploit.
