Ron Paul is out with a video discussing a recent commentary written by neocon columnist Charles Krauthamme, who wrote that a newly inked energy deal between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping “makes a mockery of US boasts to have isolated Russia”.

In response, Dr. Paul said in a video that the US is risking much more than Americans might realize by letting the China-Russia deal slip by.
According to RP, the multi-billion-dollar agreements will not only cost the US its international influence in the long run, but will decimate the worth of the dollar.
