Ukraine supports a pro-western alliance - no egotistical propped up leader like Assad: Russian Ruble is useless

Ukraine isn't Syria. Ukrainians are largely pro-western and Christian. Unlike Syria's President Assad, who is obsessively focused on his immortality, the Ukraine has thrown it's leader out and wants to form a more democratic government. Nevertheless, Russia's ambitious President Putin wants to find another Assad who can be propped up in the Ukraine, but, it won't happen.

It seems to me, it's entirely possible that President Obama can defeat the expansionist vision of Russia's President Putin with economic pressure. I never thought I'd believe this possible, but it's true, the ruble is worthless. 

Let's make the Russian ruble look like monopoly money.

Secretary of State John Kerry says the Russian Ruble is tumbling and Putin has severely stressed his nation's economy with his costly Sochi extravaganza, the Olympic Games. To put it bluntly, Putin can't afford to keep acting like he's king of the universe. He's on a power trip, but the world isn't buying into it.....I don't think.  

What's the world doing to stop President Putin from his unbridled ambition?  If something isn't done soon, it's my opinion that:

Austria + Poland = Syria + Ukraine (1939)

Secretary of State John Kerry denounced the Russian movement of troops into Ukraine on Sunday's "Meet the Press", as “an act of aggression” and accused President Vladimir Putin of “possibly trying to annex Crimea.”

“He's going to lose on the international stage, Russia is going to lose, the Russian people are going to lose, and he's going to lose all of the glow that came out of the Olympics, his $60 billion extravaganza,” Kerry said on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Russia will suffer a loss of trade and investment if Putin doesn't reverse course, said Kerry. Russia has “major investment and trade needs” which are bound to suffer if Russian troops don’t leave Ukraine. “There’s a unified view by all of the foreign ministers (Kerry) talked with – all of the G-8 and more -- that they’re simply going to isolate Russia; they’re not going to engage with Russia in a normal business-as-usual manner…. The ruble is already going down and feeling the impact of this,” he said.

From travel experience, I know that the Russian ruble is useless.

One advantage the Ukraine resistance has over the Putin illegal takeover of the country is the strength of the US dollar. Ukraine should make the US dollar its quasi currency (as in Viet Nam, in Cambodia and in Cuba).  

Ukrainians could be paid in US dollars while the rubles could be burned in a public relations bonfire campaign. Meanwhile the US dollars could be bought with Ukrainian natural resources like iron ore and petroleum.

Russia has no business stirring up the the world order just to feed Putin's short man, "Napoleon complex". 

Putin knows how the world has no use for the Russian ruble. 

In my opinion, the US dollar can defeat Russia faster than any saber rattling threats to the world order by Putin. 

Let's advocate for the US dollar to be the currency of the Ukraine and see how quickly those Russian solders, now infiltrating the nation in tanks and trucks, start looking for new Ukrainian jobs.
