Putin Says Checkmate

Today’s news at the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) meeting in Moscow, is the final card played in a long game of bluff and revenge started several decades ago by Vladamir Putin.

I’ve been banging on about this for over a year now in these pages. But hey!  It’s only me!

So whatever the current vagaries in the short-term fluctuations in energy prices are, and no matter which direction the scurrilous baiting of un-creative Libyan minister are directed, Putin, as leader (under one title or another) of a vast resource rich nation, regaining it’s feet and pride after two decades of over-consuming capitalist humiliation, is having the last laugh that he’s long waited for.

Patience, after all, is a virtue.

You’ll see in most of my postings I see the future through dialogue, which probably explains the various posturings and bluster from both sides of the energy bartering table currently.  Either that, or they’re all mad and WW3 is on the way.
