The NATO countries’ answer to economic disaster, just like in the run-up to World Wars I and II, is aggression and war. As we saw with the leaked phone call in Turkey last week they are even prepared to stage events to justify an attack on an innocent neighbor. The fact that we are now in the nuclear age seems to have passed them by, but one imagines they believe, as US Strategic Air Command General Curtis LeMay said after the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 that,

“…at any point the Soviet Union could have been obliterated without more than expectable losses on our side.”

Both China and Malaysia have been set against each other to a certain extent in a ‘blame game’ and severely humiliated over the loss of MH370.
