    The US has severely underestimated Mr. Putin.

    A great salesman sells the sizzle, not the steak.

    Greece did not get enough Left Wing Representatives to demand a better deal from the EU, or leave. That is what created the Xmas Rally, not Yellen.

    Hilarious!! Propaganda doesn’t get worse than this. The falling crude is going to hurt Texas with 125,000 job losses but it is the US to blame for the fall having increased production by 15%. Who are you fooling? Oh I forget you write for America.

    Thank you for your comments. Yes the price of crude oil will hurt oil producers in Texas, the United States, and throughout world. Countries such as Venezuela, Libya, and others will suffer too. And yes, while the United States’ ability to produce more oil via horizontal and hydraulic fracking has been a major contributor to the falling price of crude, so has falling demand due to weakening economies in Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world. But for automobile owners, manufacturers, industry, and eventually air travelers (once the price is reflected in airline tickets), it’s a wonderful gift.

    I recall several key principles my father taught me, confirmed by the consequences of history. I also learned something from a native American of the Ojibwa nation.
    1. A saying reminds us of the back story. One must know the story behind the saying to understand what the saying means.
    2. (From H. Kissinger). One can predict future behavior of a nation or culture by thoroughly studying its history.
    3. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    4. (from IBM) He who tries to swallow an elephant will choke on its tail.
    Discover the history of the group that causes the aggravation. Learn the story behind the wisdom sayings. Connect the dots, and then try to predict the plausible outcome.

    Your scenarios you described can really amaze and mislead the regular American reader. Induced crisis for short economical gain that crossed your mind does not necessarily reflect the intentions of Russia..historically, many western countries have extensive record in these practices…so generalize your comments ..I can’t believe you write for the WSJ..!
