Paid allies were never really allies. What to expect in the coming months and years.

*The U.S. will continue to become more isolated by foreign nations.

*Foreign nations will continue demanding their gold and silver be delivered to them immediately.

*The U.S will default on the shipments because the gold and silver are not available.

*At this point gold and silver will be largely unobtainable and extremely costly.

*Russia, China and our paid allies will continue building alliances without U.S. interference.

*Foreign nations will begin dumping U.S. debt.

*The Yuan will replace the dollar and possibly be backed by gold.

*The Federal Reserve will look at every opportunity to start another world war in hopes of saving their global hegemony.

*Lastly, if the U.S. does not turn from its current course we will be destroyed from within. History is brutally honest. – Gold Goliath

Well that didn’t take long. After espousing his strategy last night of leading a broad coalition against ISIS, it appears President Obama’s “allies” are backing away from the plan. As The WSJ reports, Germany and the U.K. on Thursday ruled out carrying out air strikes on Islamic State militants in Syria. It appears the Europeans, realizing the ire that these actions will likely cause to Putin, are stepping back – “We haven’t been asked, nor will we do it,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters and his U.K. counterpart Philip Hammond explicitly ruled out air strikes in Syria, after the U.K. parliament struck down such a move last year. So that leaves the French?

As The WSJ reports,

Germany and the U.K. on Thursday ruled out carrying out air strikes on Islamic State militants in Syria, a day after President Barack Obama authorized the start of U.S. air strikes there.

“We haven’t been asked, nor will we do it,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters when asked about German participation in air strikes against the Islamic State, known as ISIL or ISIS, in light of Mr. Obama’s speech.

“We need to be honest with ourselves in the current situation, we don’t yet have a final, blanket strategy which guarantees that we’ll be successful against ISIS and similar groups,” the German minister said in Berlin.

His U.K. counterpart Philip Hammond explicitly ruled out air strikes in Syria, after the U.K. parliament struck down such a move last year.
