[This article was written for the Unz Review]
March 2018 will go down in history as a truly historical month
March 1st, Vladimir Putin makes his historical address to the Russian Federal Assembly.
March 4th, Sergei Skripal, a former UK spy, is allegedly poisoned in the UK.
March 8th, British officials accuse Russia of using nerve gas to attempt to murder Sergei Skripal.
March 12th, Theresa May officially blames Russia for the poisoning and gives Russia a 24-hour ultimatum to justify herself; the Russians ignore that ultimatum. The same day, the US representative at the UNSC threatens to attack Syria even without a UNSC authorization.
March 13th, Chief of Russia’s General Staff Valery Gerasimov warned that “in case there is a threat to the lives of our military, the Russian Armed Force will take retaliatory measures both over the missiles and carriers that will use them”. The same day Chief of the Russian Armed Forces’ General Staff, Deputy Defense Minister, General of the Army Valery Gerasimov had a phone conversation with Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the United States’ Joint Chiefs of Staff.
March 15th, the UK blocked Russia’s draft UN Security Council statement on Skripal poisoning case asking for an “urgent and civilized investigation” into the Skripal case. The US, UK, France, and Germany issue a statement backing the UK and blaming Russia. The UK Defence Minister tells Russia to “shut up and go away”.
March 16th, Major General Igor Konashenkov calls the British Defense Minister an “uncouth shrew” and “intellectual impotent”.
March 17th, Russian Generals warned that the US is preparing a chemical false flag attack in Syria
March 18th, Putin overwhelmingly wins the Presidential election. The same day, General Votel, Commander of CENTCOM declares in a testimony to the Armed Services Committee that differences with Russia should be settled “through political and diplomatic channels”. When asked whether it would be correct to say that “with Russia and Iran’s help, Assad has won the Civil War in Syria?” General Votel replied “I do not think that is too — that is too strong of a statement. I think they have provided him the wherewithal to — to be ascendant at this point”.
March 19th, the EU’s Foreign Affairs Council issues a statement fully backing the UK.
March 21st The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs summons all ambassadors to a briefing on the Skripal case. The language used by the Russian representative at this briefing possibly is the bluntest used by any Russian (or even Soviet) official towards the West since WWII. The French, Swedish and US representative at the meeting all stood up to declare their “solidarity” with the UK.
March 22nd, The Chief of the Russian Armed Forces’ General Staff, Deputy Defense Minister, General of the Army Valery Gerasimov had another phone conversation with Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the United States’ Joint Chiefs of Staff. The same day, General Gerasimov also held another conversation by phone with the Commander of US European Command and NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe Army General Curtis Scaparrotti.
So what is really going on here? Surely nobody seriously believes that the Brits really think that the Russians had any motive to try to kill Skripal or, for that matter, if they had a motive, that they would do it in such a stupid manner? And what’s the deal with Syria anyway? Is the USA going to execute their false flag and bomb?
I think that at this point we should not get bogged down in the details of all this. There is a forest behind these trees. What matters most now, is that the most powerful factions of the AngloZionist Empire’s ruling elites are making a concerted effort to create a unified anti-Russian coalition. In this regard it is quite telling that the US, France, and Germany issued a statement on March 15th without even bothering to consult with their so-called “allies” in NATO or the EU. You can immediately tell “who is boss” in those crisis situations when the rest of the Euro-riffraff simply doesn’t matter (poor East Europeans with their delusions about being appreciated or even respected by the West!). Furthermore, it is quite clear that in this case, the “Anglo” component of the AngloZionist Empire is far more involved than the Zionist one, at least insofar as the front of the stage is concerned (behind the scenes the Neocons are seething at Trump for calling Putin to congratulate him and offer negotiations). I think that a number of crucial developments forced the US and the UK into trying to strong-arm the rest of the western nations to “circle the wagons” around the Empire:
- The US humiliatingly failed in its attempts to frighten and force the DPRK into submission
- The AngloZionists have lost the civil war in Syria
- The UK and the rest of the NATO are becoming militarily irrelevant
- The Ukraine has crashed and is burning and a Ukronazi attack on the Donbass is most likely
- The political forces in Europe who opposed anti-Russian policies are on the ascent
- The Russians are winning many EU countries over by economic means including North Stream whereas sanctions are hurting the EU much more than Russia
- The anti-Putin campaign has miserably failed and Russia is fully united in her stance against the Empire
What this all means is very simple: the Empire needs to either fold or double down and folding is just not something the imperial elites are willing to consider yet. They are therefore using the tools which they perceive as most effective:
- False flags: this is really a time-honored western tradition used by pretty much all the western powers. Since the general public is brainwashed and mostly can’t even begin to imagine that “freedom loving liberal democracies” could use methods usually ascribed to evil, bloodthirsty dictatorial regimes, false flags are an ideal way to get the public opinion in the correct state of mind to approve of aggressive, hostile and even violent policies against a perceived threat or obstacle to hegemony.
- Soft power: have you noticed how the Oscars or the Cannes festival always pick exactly the kind of “artists” which the Empire happens to politically promote? Well, this is true not only for the Oscars or the Cannes festival but for almost all of the cultural, social and political life in the West. This is especially true of so-called “human rights” and “peace” organizations which are simply political pit-bulls which can be sicked on any country in need of subversion and/or intervention. Russia has never developed that kind of political toolkit.
- Verbal escalation: this tactic is extremely crude yet very effective. You begin by vociferously proclaiming some falsehood. The fact that you proclaimed it in such vociferous and hyperbolic matter achieves two immediate results: it sends all your friends and allies a clear message “you are either with us or against us”, that leaves no room for nuance or analysis, and it gives otherwise rather spineless politicians no way to back down, thus strengthening their “resolve”.
- Herding: there is safety in numbers. So when dealing with a potentially dangerous foe, like Russia, all the little guys flock together so as to appear bigger or, at least, harder to single out. Also, when everybody is responsible, nobody is. Thus herding is also politically expedient. Finally, it changed the inter-relational dynamic from one of friends or allies to one typically found among accomplices in a crime.
- Direct threats: the Empire got away with making threats left and right for many decades, and this is a habit which is hard to break. The likes of Nikki Haley or Hillary Clinton probably sincerely believe that the USA is quasi-omnipotent or, conversely, they might be terrified by the creeping suspicion that it might not. Threats are also an easy, if ineffective, substitute for diplomacy and negotiations, especially when your position is objectively wrong and the other side is simply a lot smarter than you.
The big problem is that none of these methods work against Russia or, let me correct that, don’t work anymore (they sure appeared to work in the past). The Russian public opinion is fully aware of all these methods (courtesy of a Russian media NOT controlled by AngloZionists) and Margarita Simonian beautifully summarized the feelings that all this elicits in the Russian population:
“all your injustice and cruelty, inquisitorial hypocrisy and lies you forced us to stop respecting you. You and your so-called “values.” We don’t want to live like you live, anymore. For fifty years, secretly and openly, we wanted to live like you, but not any longer. We have no more respect for you, and for those among us that you support, and for all those people who support you (…). For that, you only have yourself to blame (…) Our people are capable to forgive a lot. But we don’t forgive arrogance, and no normal nation would. Your only remaining Empire would be wise to learn the history of its allies, all of them are former empires. To learn the ways they lost their empires. Only because of their arrogance. White man’s burden, my ass!” (this last sentence in English in the original text – trans.)
The stark truth is that far from wanting to invade, appease or otherwise please the West, Russia has absolutely no need, or even interest, in it. None. For centuries Russian elites have been western-focused to some degree or other and none of them could even begin to imagine a West-less Russia. This is still true today, the Russian “elites” still want to live like (very rich) Brits or Germans and they still hate the common Russian people and Vladimir Putin. But those Russian elites have now been crushed by the magnitude of Putin’s victory in the presidential elections. Normally, this should result in an even bigger exile of Russian “businessmen” to the UK, France or Israel, but the problem now is that the British are making noises about punishing them for, well, being Russians (even Russophobic, pro-western, “Russians”). As a result, these “poor” pro-western liberals can only whine on the social media and in the few pro-western media outlets left in Russia (no, not due to repression, but due to their political irrelevancy being backed, as they are, by something between 2% and 5% of the population).
But setting aside the wealthy “elites” for a moment, Russia as a country and as a nation has simply no use for the West and what it represents. Those who fantasize about Russia being interested in “Europe”, “White identity” or “Western Christianity” are only kidding themselves. They hope that the current cultural and spiritual revival in Russia will somehow spill over to them and allow them to extricate themselves from the gutter in which they are currently prostrated. It won’t. Just read again what Simonian said about the western “values” in the quote above. For most Russians “Europe” reeks of Napoleon, “White identity” of Hitler and “Western Christianity” of the creation of the Ukraine and the “Eastern Crusades“. No, Russia has no interest in revenge against any of that, she just has no respect or interest for what these concepts stand for. (Poland – is possibly the last country where all these things are taken seriously and fondly remembered). Still, the Russians are still willing to negotiate to establish a viable coexistence between the Western and Russian civilizational realms. Putin clearly said so in his speech
There is no need to create more threats to the world. Instead, let us sit down at the negotiating table and devise together a new and relevant system of international security and sustainable development for human civilization. We have been saying this all along. All these proposals are still valid. Russia is ready for this.
But if the AngloZionists are dead set on world domination by means of war, then Russia is ready for that too. Not a war of aggression, of course, not even against the tiny Baltic statelets, Putin made that clear too when he said “we are not threatening anyone, not going to attack anyone or take away anything from anyone with the threat of weapons. We do not need anything. Just the opposite” (emphasis added). But if attacked, Russia is now ready to defend herself:
“And to those who in the past 15 years have tried to accelerate an arms race and seek unilateral advantage against Russia, have introduced restrictions and sanctions that are illegal from the standpoint of international law aiming to restrain our nation’s development, including in the military area, I will say this: everything you have tried to prevent through such a policy has already happened. No one has managed to restrain Russia (…) Any use of nuclear weapons against Russia or its allies, weapons of short, medium or any range at all, will be considered as a nuclear attack on this country. Retaliation will be immediate, with all the attendant consequences. There should be no doubt about this whatsoever.”
Why is the nuclear issue so central? Because the Russians are fully aware of the fact that the AngloZionists cannot win a conventional war with Russia. Thus it is crucial for the Russians to convince the AngloZionists that they are neither militarily superior nor invulnerable (see here for a full analysis of these two myths). But once some kind of modus vivendi is achieved with the West, Russia will focus her efforts in different directions: much needed internal reforms and development, the work with China on the establishment of a single Eurasian zone of economic security, peace and prosperity, the restoration of peace in the Middle-East, the development of the Russian Far East and North – you name it. Russia has plenty of work which needs to be done, none of which involves the West in any capacity.
And that is, of course, what is so totally unacceptable to the West.
Hence this month’s historical developments which have placed Russia and the West in a direct collision course. As I said above, the Empire can now either fold or double down. If it decides to fold, war will be averted and meaningful negotiations finally entered into. If it doubles down, something the Neocons always do, then this means war with Russia. This is a stark and very difficult choice (no, not for normal people, but for the psychopaths ruling the West). And there isn’t much Russia could, or should, do at this point. As is the case every time a serious crisis takes place, the apparently united elites running the West will now break-up into separate factions and each one of these factions will pursue and promote its own, narrow, interests. There will be an intense, mostly behind the scenes, struggle between those who will want to double down or even trigger a war against Russia and those who will be horrified by that notion (not necessarily for profound moral reasons, just out of basic self-interest and a healthy instinct for self-preservation).
As to who will prevail, your guess is as good a mine. But the fact that today Trump replaced McMaster with a warmongering psychopath like John Bolton is a clear sign that the Neocons are in charge in the USA and that the Axis of Kindness is about to get a heck of a lot “kinder”.
Revolt’n Bolton or an ode to dumb, dumber and dumbest
Jumping out of the fat and into the fire
will we sit frozen just feeling aghast?
As they heap higher a mid-East fire,
will we wailing cry, alas and alack?
As events turn dark and the outcome dire,
the kindling alighting starts fueling the Blast.
Or do we put a stop to this vile charade?
Not at our expense, Mr. Trump, will you
have your parade!
Well done, teranam13!
Crosby, Stills & Nash Lyrics
[Intro. (Electric Guitar)]
[Stills:] If you smile at me I will understand
‘Cause that is something
Everybody everywhere does in the same language
[Crosby:] I can see by your coat, my friend you’re from the other side
There’s just one thing I got to know
Can you tell me please who won?
[Stills:] Say can I have some of your purple berries?
[Crosby:] Yes, I’ve been eating them
For six or seven weeks now haven’t got sick once
[Stills:] Probably keep us both alive
Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it’s supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline let us be
Talkin’ ’bout very free and easy
[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]
Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving, you don’t need us
[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]
Go take your sister then by the hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again
We are leaving, you don’t need us
[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]
And it’s a fair wind
Blowin’ warm out of the south over my shoulder
Guess I’ll set a course and go
[Ending (Electric Guitar and Organ)]
The Delgados – The Light Before We Land
In case i die just these I’d like to have
Don’t wake me up without a master plan
With sight and sound becoming fragile
Don’t you understand?
When things that once were beautiful
And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of mine
Heaven for us
In truth there is no better place to be
Than falling out of darkness still to see
Without a premonition
Could you tell me where we stand?
I’d hate to lose this light
Before we land
And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on
we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of mine
Haven for us
Before we let euphoria
Convince us we are free
Remind us how we used to feel
Before when life was real
And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of mine
Heaven for us
Bolton, in my opinion, is UNAMBIGUOUSLY a major war criminal guilty of genocide and the ‘Supreme Crime’ of aggression, in regard to Iraq. I really think that Russia needs to take the gloves off and indict Bolton, Bush, Cheney, Blair etc, for the Crimes Against Humanity in Iraq (and elsewhere)under Universal Jurisdiction, then issue warrants for their arrests. When only one side plays the ‘lawfare’ card, it gets abused and over-used. A little fightback would be good to see.
I wholeheartedly agree.
We have the concept of citizens arrest.
Why not try it internationally?
Bring it to the General Assembly.
Maybe just calling out these people for what they are–what used to be called, pre-PC times—calling a spade a spade in an international forum. I might clear away a few cobwebs.
What would it take to get a judge to hand down some indictments, as in the case of the Pinochet?
Maybe a Malaysian judge . . .
Bolton is a scarecrow.with his nomination Trump evacuated the relevance of the post.
Giving power to whom? If you make position powerless, the power then just moves somewhere else.
Its not moving to Trump. Trump already ceded all defense policy to the military. If Gen. McMaster had taken up that power, and now the new White House National Security Adviser is as you put it a ‘scarecrow’, then that power goes somewhere else. Since Trump doesn’t seem to want it, I suppose then it flows down to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the new head of the CIA (who used to run the torture camps).
Remember, in the modern American structure the CIA is a fighting force that is in some ways in competition with the official military, thus if the power devolves downwards towards the fighters, the CIA is going to take their share of that power and try to grab as much more of it as they can. With the CIA taking over diplomacy as well, its at least plausible that they are gaining power at this time. And its not unusual for spies who know secrets in an authoritarian government to use those secrets to gain power.
Yes, its possible that Bolton is a scarecrow. I can plausibly see the power games that could have led to that result. They are not the only possible solution, but certainly a valid one that should be considered.
Definitely looks like a scarecrow, skipping down the yellow brick road with Dorothy, Lion and Tin Man, singing “If I only had a brain.”
Good summary of events. A couple of additional key events:
March 13: Tillerson dismissal announced to be replaced by hardline CIA Director Pompeo. His deputy, tied to torture during the Bush regime announced as putative CIA Director (both to be confirmed by the Senate)
March 21: Biggest US defense budget including $200m for arms to Ukraine and (at least) $250m to “counter” Russian influence approved. Also possible US sanctions vs Nordstream 2 companies announced.
Reports that Trump-MbS of Saudi Arabia seem to have made a pact to “punish” Russia in Syria via Saudis opening up the spigot on oil again (with US to indirectly support Saudi losses(?))
March 22: Trump announces his tariffs will apply pretty much only to non-allies and declares a trade war against China. Markets drop. (What impact this will have in unraveling the tremendous debt created in the US remains to be seen)
EU countries appear to be closing ranks against Russia and with UK.
Over the next 3 months to the World Cup following events have increased in likelihood:
– Major US led attack on Syrian Gov assets
– Israeli war on Hezbollah both in Lebanon and Syria
– JPCOA vs Iran is abandoned
– setting up of attack on Iran
– Kiev attack on Donbass
– Escalation (vs peace) in Korean Peninsula (US/RoK wargames are still on despite DPRK overtures)
– China/US trade war/Financial crash
– Partial boycott of World Cup by EU countries
Living in the EU the general public opinion depending on who you speak to ….. is NO to war….
The political class are embarrissing with their emotional comments….. Media of course is slanted with inept stupidity and political comments …. irrational
If war breaks out Europe will be flattened where US has bases and accessible airfields….. We dont want war.
One finalpoint = western christianity referred to is the Papacy – roman catholic church – a religion of fear. (The protector of too many paedophile priests. – devolved from Baal an ancient cult -(Old testament) Satanic and subtle in its teachings . [Prof Walter Veith amazing discoveries series. Check the lecture on the man behind the mask amongst 30 lectures delving into secret societies including masonic s …. fascinating academic approach]
Another element is the rapture prodestant s (and I was one ) who some in there may push for the destruction of russia ( its an athiest nation ….. Thats what I was taught during soviet times ….)
Certainly we are heading for war ….. there is no doubt now ……
The west has lost too many battles and little nations are defying the anglo club. Israel is vulnerable…….
John Bolton is bad news and an aggressive bully as many editorials in alternative media are stating.
The planet is in deep doo doos now with boltens elevation.
Excellent analysis Saker
Thankyou for your wisdom
Paul Craig Roberts ended an article recently this way:
“If Trump names John Bolton National Security Adviser, plan to die.”
Txnr, I have always planned to die, but alone, not with all other humans and most other Life on Earth at the same time, simply to sate the appetites of Death-worshipping monsters.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
― Margaret Mead
Margaret Mead said many foolish things.
The aim has ALWAYS been to destroy the FIFA World Cup, which must not be allowed to go ahead lest Western publics get a picture of Russia and Russians as fellow human beings. This is pure Talmudist Zionazism, where all goyim are seen as lesser beings, only put on Earth to ‘..serve the Jews’, as the hugely influential Rabbi Ovadia Yosef bragged. In all these ‘Western’ aggressions, Israel and the Zionazi Fifth Columns that control the West are leading the way in hyper-belligerent aggression, which is the true trade-mark of Israel-the ‘mad dog’ tactic recommended by Dayan decades ago. The Meshugganah tactic, intended to intimidate. The only problem is that Israeli aggression and violence has simply created a reaction, seen in Hezbollah and Iran, and, hopefully, a recovered Syria in future, that have long realised that Eretz Yisrael intends only ill towards them. They have nowhere to go, so they will fight, and as Hezbollah showed, they will win. Israel’s aggressive, race-hatred based, belligerence and total refusal to ever attempt to live in peace with its neighbours has left it with two choices-self-destruction, or the destruction of the entire region, perhaps the world, in the Samson Option.
America doesn’t care about the World Cup. I doubt many people could tell you that America failed to qualify. Take a poll of Americans and try to ask them when the next world cup is, and most will give you a blank look and say ‘world what?’ and only a few would be able to answer 2018.
As to Europe, I doubt you are going to convince the Germans not to try to repeat as champions. And good luck trying to keep German fans from going to watch.
To me, the nonsense that everyone was saying about how everything in the world revolved around the Russian elections has just morphed overnite into everything in the world revolves around the world cup.
Its about world domination. Its about the rich getting richer. Its not about a friggin futbol tournament.
This is british con
I totally disagree. The world events and domination go hand in hand. They do care about international events. The US is the one who brought the FIFA scandals. The UK’s Skripal nonsense came with World Cup boycott as their first response. 2008 Georgian Ossetia war happened on the opening of the Beijing Games. Ukraine conflict flared up during 2014 Sochi games. The humiliation of Russian athletes and blanket banning even of disabled people. The behavior speaks louder than words. Influencing people from going to Russia for World Cup will cost money that Russia would need to cover costs for preparing to host the games. Making it difficult to host events for Russia, they hope to breed discontent amongst the populace. All these things suits the needs of those who seek to have another country to do what the West wants. Obama said we that some countries need their arm bent to have them do what they want. I think this comment pertains to all administrations of the US.
Do you want a bet? The opinions of global football fans mean NOTHING to the scum who rule the West, and who have plainly, gone stark, raving, mad with hatred.
They do care about an event that is the most popular in the planet.
Yes, it’s not war time like Russians concluded.
It’s just the world cup.
They did the very same with Brazil WC and Olimpic games, but of course, using another scale.
My tough is, they are doing exactly what they do every time NK have to get their food in the field.
Stressing security forces, with the WC as target, to do something during the event.
They want all Russian soldiers at the border, far away from cities and stadiums.
I think they plan something along the lines of the South Ossetia operation during the winter olympics a while back. Wait for the world to be watching and hope that Russia won’t respond. They are insane and will keep repeating past behaviour because they lack any creative ideas.
My thought exactly on the appointment of the lunatic Bolton.
Here is an open question for anyone who has direct experience with the USAmerikan military: is there anyone in it who has the moral compass and integrity of Vasili Arkhipov or Stanislav Petrov? I am trying to determine, however vicariously, the possibility that the US missile command crews would disobey an order to fire, because with Bolton on board, that order becomes far more possible.
Bolton – and Pompeo. Birds of a feather.
And to anyone who thinks the Democrats are an opposition party in the US, they are fielding a slate of congressional candidates who are former CIA employees or otherwise veterans of the Terror Wars.
Thus, while Trump is even more pro-torture than before (pro-torture Pompei and Haskel and now Bolton into prominent positions), the Democrats are running their own slate of experienced torturers as the opposition.
The American two-party system is only slightly less resticted in choices than the old Soviet one-party system. In America, we now get to pick the hair-style of the pro-torture candidates we like best.
With Germany in the 1930’s, it reached a point where the German people were powerless to rebel against the Gestapo and the brownshirts. It took the rest of the world to step in and stop the madness.
It may take the rest of the world to do it again…americans are brainwashed and scared of their government…I am ashamed to say.
that has been my impression – and I spent about 12 years in the US of AIPAC.
Americans are naturally cowards – there is a lot of mindless cheer – leading and lots of mania (caricature of happiness – when depressed but egocentric and loud people decide to project the mood of what they think is happiness). No genuine pride or confidence – even honor is very hard to find – it’s a Faustian country where most have sold their sou long ago – all they have is fake image management skills and nothing else.
They are fundamentally lost, disoriented, cowardly people. Most of them are waiting for invisible masters to come to solve their problems (I think Greeks are like that too).
Here is a good quote from a century ago – nothing has changed – this has beem exactly my experience with Americans:
The American is marked, in fact, by precisely the habits of mind and act that one would look for in a man insatiably ambitious and yet incurably fearful, to wit, the habits, on the one hand, of unpleasant assertiveness, of somewhat boisterous braggardism, of incessant pushing, and, on the other hand, of conformity, caution and subservience. He is forever talking of his rights as if he stood ready to defend them with his last drop of blood, and forever yielding them up at the first demand. George Jean Nathan and H.L. Mencken, The American Credo, 1920
It strikes me that the Japanese said almost the identical things. This is what led them to think that a strike at Pearl Harbor would cause the Americans to quit and go home. That was a mistake.
Today is different of course. Then Americans could legitimately believe that they were fighting for freedom and democracy and against fascism and militarism. No longer. So, if that was the inner strength that Americans found in WW2, then it won’t be there.
Then again, war can create changes within a culture. Especially a war that is not going well. We saw that in France in WW1, and in of course the complete overthrow of the Czar. If someone makes the same mistake as the Japanese, they might find themselves fighting a revitalized America that’s thrown off its corrupt government. Its happened before.
The Old Pearl Harbor was a false-flag, like the New Pearl Harbor of 9/11. It was caused by US aggression against Japan and the oil embargo, and allowed to happen when the Thanatopolis DC elite knew, absolutely, that it was coming.
I wouldn’t say all americans are cowards, if I were you. Don’t underestimate us. Cowards? Cops maybe, FBI, DOJ maybe, but not all americans. We’ve been brainwashed from childhood. There are many brave, honorable americans alive who are disgusted with our foreign murderous policy. There are things you know, things you don’t know and things you don’t know that you don’t know. Most americans don’t know or don’t know what they don’t know. Do you know what I mean? The majority are still asleep – they’re way too busy to open their eyes. You know; working, watching football, basketball, baseball, american idol, dancing with the stars, etc. etc. The psychopaths are now going after our guns – they know that some of us know. The jig is up, thanks to the internet. You know who “they” are don’t you? The people are slowly awakening from their slumber. All it’ll take is one well lit match and a lot of fancy suit and ties will be hanging from light post – AIPAC included. God willing.
you have a dream – a nice dream – but still it’s only a dream
we are doomed that how it is
Hell is empty-all the devils are in Thanatopolis DC.
Many moons ago I had an acquaintance who was CO of a missile silo complex out on the prairie. We got a snoot full one eventide and I asked him that exact question. His reply was, and at least the firing sequence of two officers turning the firing keys together to enable launch was common knowledge back then, that if one of the officers hesitated in the least to turn the key, the other officer was to shoot him and the assigned backup officer was to turn the key, both keys far enough apart that it was impossible for one man to turn both keys and the keys had to be turned at exactly the same time to enable launch. In essence it’s a modern version of the old Legion saying, March or Die.
There was at least one occaision where a mistaken order to fire came down the line, and the American missile officers refused to obey it. Thankfully!
I can’t find the reference quickly today, but I know I read that story a year or two ago. We can add those names to the list of heroes that saved the world. Also on the list is the communist political officer who refused an order from the sub’s captain to use a nuclear torpedo on a US carrier during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
The Okinawa missiles of October
there was also a sub with the bird up and running…sea launch cruise I forget the name. same time
obviously LeMay was giving unauthorized back channel orders, him and the gut ol gang.
Right; I have already mentioned Arkhipov.
Then it becomes a matter of which officer draws and shoots first. What a dilemma! (no sarc intended)
Thank you very much for the very relevant reply, Auslander. I was hoping that the US servicemen would be more like Arkhipov, but I was afraid that reports like yours would be the reality, which you’ve confirmed.
Are the any others with relevant observations on this? Please stay on topic if you reply to this thread; many have not been so considerate.
Max, I was just listening to Bill Richardson ‘interviewed’ by a Britich Bulldust Concoction bottom-kisser. This creature, a supposedly ‘liberal’ Thanatopian apparatchik, was simply INSANE. The inversion of reality, the pathopsychological projection, the sheer mendacity and the psychotic arrogance and self-delusion were simply indescribable.
“make a sweet deal with me or face the monsters that surround me”
Unfortunately, not one that I’m aware of. Sec. Mattis enjoys wide support, even adulation amongst many. He says all the ‘right’ things that tickle the ears of veterans, as well as those who believe themselves patriots. Obama purged over 200 flag officers during his time in office. That has helped lead to very large, very real & very palpable impact on America’s military (at least, to those willing to take a hard, honest look at our state of affairs).
I served as an officer during those years. Heard of the old adage ‘place a frog in a pot of boiling water, he’ll jump out. Put said frog in pot of room temperature water, turn on the flame, & he will sit there til he boils to death’s? That’s similar to what it was like serve during those years. Non-stop deployments, inadequate/improper/outdated equipment, Rules of engagement set forth for the benefit of optics & politics as opposed to those indicated for force protection & ‘war winning. I watched the Army I loved turned into a bunch of demoralized, tired, & stressed service members, who had no idea what/who they were really fighting for.
The one constant was senseless, dumb &/or worthless additions to training that did not a damn thing to better the service, or the nation for that matter. It was a never ending barrage of meaningless, useless, inane feel good social justice bull. For every hour I spent actually training to perform my duties in war environment, I spent at least 20 or more hours doing ridiculous, never ending computer guided ‘learning. I went to the range twice in 7 years, but was required to sit in 12 (more, I’m sure) Equal opportunity/sexual harassment prevention classes.
In the years following WW II, the miliary-indutrial complex took the reins. The leadership abandoned all the costly lessons learned since before our founding, the most important being this: the military has one job, & one job only- to protect & defend our nation, to successfully prosecute AND win war against all enemies foreign & domestic.
Lots more I could, & would like to, write. I’ll end on this note: I have been in the process of ‘waking up’ for a few years now, but a couple of things I have come to believe to be true.
1. America, the portion I love & will fight for, is not Washington, not wall street, not money. It is the love I have for my neighbors, my community & loved ones. My loyalty is to The Almighty, & the people of these United States.
2. I have only recently discover the Saker, but I recognized the truth of his position. America is no longer a military might, & Russia would whip us bad. Period.
The saddest fact to cross the world stage in my lifetime is that Russia & the US have traded places. Russia is an obvious force for freedom & peace, of allowed to be. Putin is a man worthy of respect. I cannot, in good conscience, say the same regarding any official in our government.
Thanks so much Saker for your clear cut analysis of what is going on RIGHT NOW!!!
I turned to you when I saw that McMaster was being replaced by Bolton.
Now, I know that my prayers are useful. And my prayers are “affirmative co-creating thoughts”.
I “still dare believe” that President Trump is a “trump card”, a joker, and I put a lot of my prayers on the “uranus surprise” that can happen when the “chess board” will be in place.
One thing you say “the empire is now in a serious mode of fold or double down”.
I second that, I feel it in my bones as strong as when USA worked its way into the war on Iraq.
I kept saying in my head: “No! it is so not necessary and a bad choice”. It was a gut feeling just like some millions of people around the world felt, I’m sure.
Now, I’m praying that somehow, somewhere, someways, “the Empire” will have “some” sense and realize that it is not constructive to double down and destroy the planet while it goes down.
That’s my prayer, and call me “idealist” if any of you want, I am totally focused on that “vision”.
It will be a surprise to everyone, it will come from a left and right, above and below, and all the people who have been stirred since President Trump got into the electoral race.
And it is much bigger than Trump himself. I dare believe that the swamp can be drained by people, small people like you and me and all your followers who “have heart”.
I totally believe in that! Because “love” is a mighty power that can easily overcome “Fear”.
And I put my $$$ behind my words donating $50 right now for your dedicated work.
Thanks so much Saker, and please keep doing those interviews with Catherine Austin Fitts and the likes!!
Gabriel… the seagull… who dare believe!
>It was a gut feeling just like some millions of people around the world felt, I’m sure.
Of course it was felt around the world. That time, germany and france stood up against iraq invasion. See what happened to the political wings that stood against the invasion in the following years.
People where lied to. In all europe but france and germany, MSM was drumming to war. (In france I recall a general on the dinner news at public channel, saying of usa “proof” “this is clearly fabricated, we can see that this and that was changed, USA has an habit of forging evidence”)
Some countries where clearly against (spain for instance had manifestations with hundresths of thousand of people antiwar) but it was no good. Governments did what they pleased as they always do.
We should thank Bernays for all that scientific work on “manufacturing consent”.
Many people see this for what it is. A con. As predictable as a greek tragedy. Nonetheless, MSM will spew their lies, beat their drums, and unless people pause and stop this process, clearly we are being led to WWWW.
Unfortunately, I do not see any of what you see. Trump leads a country of losers. Petrodollar is about to disappear. The Middle East is soon lost and Israel is no longer a long time. Nationalists win in Russia, China, Israel (if great Israel can settle?) Pakistan has tired of America and goes against China. Russia is gaining ever more in Afghanistan in the hiding place where the Opium War is led by Russian experts. Now, many believe that this will make America go down. But it’s not President Trump who decides what makes the Globalists / Internationalists those who want to conquer the world, neocons? They are crazy and they have Theresa May the new “Churchill” in GB, she is more crazy than most. Just look at the story she cooked together, talk about hating Putin’s Russia but not for what it is but for what she wants, LYDNAD. She is crazy and able to repeat.
How does the empire back down after perpetrating 911?
I just cant see it.
Remember that the American government does not in any way reflect the American people and their views. America is an oligarchy and what the American people feel does not matter to decision makers. If it did, we’d have a living wage and single-payer health care, both of which poll as popular positions.
The last two elections have been won by Presidents who took an anti-war position in their campaigns and were perceived as being the anti-war choice of the two candidates. Obama was such against Hillary and McCain in 2008, and Trump in 2016. Turns out both were lying con-men, but that does not change the obvious fact that at least pretending to be anti-war is the way to get elected President and that the candidates who are obviously pro-war get defeated.
If they were given the choice, Americans would chose a vastly different set of government policies than what they have today. But America is not a democracy and the people have no voice in decisions.
Sorry bud, but I am going to ask you a sick question. First the obvious statement:
The US government represents the people and thus makes the decisions.
The way I read your post, is as follows hence my question: Are you suggesting that the people of USofA are going to stand up against their government and are they going to revolt against the said Government to protect the Constitution and freedoms of the people as enshrined in the said Constitution? Isn’t it against the oath, which says in my own words “that you are going to defend the USofA against internal and external “enemies”.
You realize that the said “revolting” people will be proclaimed “The enemies of the State”.
Another question: ” Are you suggesting that the people who swore this oath are going to break the oath and stand up against the State”?
They make the oath to the Constitution, not a state. Some will honor it, many will not. Nobody knows who will or will not. Even the people themself. And it is enormously better (and safer) not allow the deterioration proceed to the point when we will find out.
Authoritarian oligarchies can certainly go to war.
Actually, it used to be said that democracies would not go to war with each other. Unfortunately, I can not think of many actual democracies in the world today. But oligarchies have and will go to war.
If this were going to be a long war, America would be in trouble from divisions on the home front.
Its unlikely that a nuclear war will be a long war.
RE ” she is more crazy than most. ”
Just look at her face!
In most pictures I have seen of her, especially recent ones, it is rough and ugly, contorted with hate, venom, hostility, self-righteousness. She looks as crazed as she sounds. Terrifying. A face to trigger fear and tears in an infant.
God help us!
BTW, two days ago my Moscow colleague referred to just the same passage of Simonyan’s that the Saker did. I read it in a rough Google translation. Thanks for the smoother one. My colleague said (also commenting on a CrossTalk show about the election and disagreeing with what Viktor Olevich said on Lavelle’s show):
I like Dima too. Sometimes he participates in Russian talk shows, less often than the other Russian expert in this program, Olevich, who is a good expert too. Opening to hostiles is indeed the most essential defect of Russian economic and financial policy. I cannot agree with Olevich in his point that the cabinet is successful. I would say that the economy shows some positive trends despite of the activity of the liberal “financial-economic block” of the government that created impediments to growth from the beginning of the sanctions regime in 2014. The so-called “reforms” of education and health-care systems failed. The government is basing on liberal principles that do not work and focused merely on the blunt policy of economizing budget expenditures.
I wrote in the previous letter to you about 5% of votes got by the neoliberal parties. In fact, they received even less, only 2.6%. I took the wrong number from the short article by Margarite Simonyan, the RT director. Unfortunately, the article is in Russian, but it is worth reading:
I agree with every her point. She is extremely smart, competent and brave
To which I replied:
I read the article you mentioned with Google translate.
Some of the translation is kind of rough, but I think the main idea is that the UK/May with their Russophobic poison have alienated Russians who might have agreed with some of their ideas. Now these Russians have rallied around their country and their leader, Putin, and actually have become anti-UK and anti-West.
Is that a fair reading?
To which he replied:
Yes, English translation is rough, but it gives clearly the main points. Simonyan also said that patriotism does not contradict to liberalism and that she is a patriot, but although a liberal. I think she meant the basic human rights and freedoms that are not denied in modern Russia, but, from the Russian point of view, became an object of political manipulations and propaganda in the West. The English chemical incident is only an episode in the long series of similar cases. As a result of such transformations, the attitude of many Russians to the West has changed to the worse, but it does not concern the attitude to ordinary people. I’ve never felt any sign of hatred to Americans or Europeans, a kind of “Americafobia” or “Eurofobia”, in public debates in Russia.
Trump is totally controlled by the Zionazis, as are May, Macron etc. His pretense of seeking an accommodation with Russia was just a ploy. He was financed by Zionazi capi like Sheldon Adelson, and they only accept TOTAL loyalty in a goy employee.
Profound analysis. I hope the disunited factions in the West choose your alternative, and our self centred British Empiricist doctrine of “Enlightened Self Interest” wins against the megalomaniac Napoleonic / Hitlerian hubris of France and Germany. As for the US, it’s a paper tiger, a dog that only fights in a pack — or against a small dog. It won’t go without Germany and France in the fore. Britain is yapping loudly but no longer leads the pack. And bear baiting is a dangerous sport if the bear is not chained.
“Cry, cry upon Death but may the Good prevail” — Aeschyles, Agamemnon
I odkn’t get why France, Germany, and Italy are letting Britain continue with this crazy yapping. It certainly is the tail yapping, not the head.
What is in this yap-fest for the big Eu countries?
Even the World Cup thing: these countries take their futbol seriously, and the fans will be seriously pissed if they don’t get a real contest, i.e., with Russia. Even soccer fans in the USA would probably be angry.
If the FIFA threat comes to pass, which countries will also pull out in protest/support of Russia?
I should think any footballers and their fans who want to see a genuine stiff competition will want to keep the Russkies in. And, sports is far more important to the “unwashed masses” (i.e., citizens) than most other issues besides the economy.
Just wondering how well fiddling with the World Cup would go over.
@Katherine. Football is very serious question indeed. I do not see the Weak and Unstable regime of Theresa May summoning the courage to deprive her people of our chance to be in the World Cup. Even though most of us do not fancy our odds on winning. After all, the game’s the thing.
@summoning the courage to deprive her people of our chance to be in the World Cup
I am very much afraid that she would use it as a pretext to further accusing Russia of ‘aggression’ (against the Football hooligans). It seems clear to me that the apparently imbecilic comparisons with ‘Hitler’s Olympics’ are the preparation for provocations of all kinds. I bet that accusations of doping, match fixing, will resurface. The incredibly insolent demand made by Boorish that Russia gave guarantees about the safety of the ‘fans’ is again a preparation for creating a case. And the worshipers of the religion of the Ball will fall for it.
“But the fact that today Trump replaced McMaster with a warmongering psychopath like John Bolton is a clear sign that the Neocons are in charge in the USA and that the Axis of Kindness is about to get a heck of a lot “kinder”.
Well, yeah. And more obvious. Bolton’s appointment, along with earlier pompaio at state and cruella de vil at the cia, were other events I was going to add to your March list. They no longer need to pretend. Their foundation laying done, time to go to stage two. Full on zionazi, netanyahoo style.
My guess this escalation was planned all along, and Putin’s warnings had nothing to do with it. The Russians, no doubt, realised the zionazis were prepping for the next stage of their aggression and decided to pre-empt them. So Putin gave them a reality check. Remember the old story about Putin saying that in his youth, if he thought a fight was inevitable, he would make the first move? Well, there you go.
There are few more March events I would also include in that timeline. Also the Skripal hit was most definitely zionazi ordered. The brits or pindos may have carried it out, and botched it, but it is part of the zionazi/israeli escalation planning. But it’s late so that will have to be another comment.
One very telling thing this month was Trump announcing he planned to meet with Putin soon to discuss the arms race which is “getting out of control”.
I would say that this realization is courtesy of one VVP and his March 1 speech. The erstwhile empire may double down, but it will be in petty ways, trying to find a weakness to exploit. Dangerous, yes, but ultimately futile.
The U.S. has also said that China could avoid a trade war by buying more U.S. gas. IMO, China should say yes, of course, but we buy in yuan!! Lol
The death throes of a bully are simply fascinating.
I’d imagine that Trump has been hearing at least some voices within the US military and defense establishments urging war now as the last best chance for America to prevail in WW3, if one can be said to win a nuclear war. Hopefully this request to meet is Trump trying to find another course. Unfortunately, if Trump stands up too strongly against war, and if Trump is seen to be appeasing the Russians, he’s likely to be impeached or assasinated.
I absolutely agree. It seems to me that the USA military, after the F35 and Littoral ships fiascos, have realised that their ‘superiority’ is being eroded week by week and month by month. If they do not start now, they will be further and further behind. Russia and China are pulling ahead in weapons, technology and strategy. Every day they USA delays, the more likely they are to be defeated.
The additional economic and social strains are also playing their part to push for war. Every western country is riven down the centre. USA with Deplorables and Snowflakes, UK with Brexiteers and Remoaners, France, Spain, Italy, Germany are all split nearly 50 :50 and the factions do not merely disagree, but fervently hate each other. The western states only way to overcome these divisions is an external enemy greater than their internal differences. Thus 75% of British believe that Russia poisoned Skripal and are an enemy of UK.
They need someone to blame for the economic hell that is to come, a war, any war, will be the scapegoat.
The sooner the better for the US elite and to hell with the peasants.
PJ, the restrictions that Thanatopia is placing on Chinese technology and science is an almost mirth-inducing (OK, it is mirth-inducing) display of deluded racially supremacist self-harm, and stable-door bolting as the escaped horse disappears into the distance. The utterly bizarre and typically racist declarations by the Imperial ubermenschen that the Chinese can ‘only copy’, and are not ‘innovative’, are so laughably incorrect as to be almost unbelievable. By blackballing the Chinese, it will be the glorious, God-ordained, Western ‘Gods Upon the Earth’ who suffer the most, as Chinese science and technology boom, in co-operation with the world-including the Israelis who are not in the business of letting an opportunity slip away. After all, they have stolen US secrets in the past, then sold them to the Chinese, and gotten away with it, naturally.
The USA is these days only a puppet bully. For years, beginning with rich Jews buying the Presidency for Truman, but particularly since Jews in the LBJ Administration suppressed all investigations of the USS Liberty atrocity, the USA has been increasingly controlled, in politics, business particularly finance and the brainwashing apparatus, by Zionazi Fifth Columns who first allegiance is to Israel and no-one else. The other states of the West are similarly controlled, the result of straight money power, the residual guilt over the Nazi Judeocide (cynically manipulated into a pseudo-religion by the Zionazis)and the lunacy of the ‘Christian Zionists’ who, in fact, hate Jews only slightly less than they do Moslems, but intend using them to cause the End Times.
The drive against Islam, Russia and China is a pure Zionazi project. Their lust for universal power, as predicted by the Talmud and the endless exegeses therefrom, is very real. China, in particular, being a civilization that will never bow down before the fascistic and religious fundamentalist elites of a distant, alien, tribe, who hold them in racist contempt, as they do all goyim, MUST be ‘brought down’, one way or another. Russia is simply a way-station on that insane journey, one that will destroy Israel, or the world.
I’m not thrilled with Bolton, who I think is kind of nutty, even though he can sound normal during interviews….
OTOH, according to voltairenet, Trump pulled the trigger on Rex Tillerson because he was believed to be conspiring to execute a false flag in Syria.
“Bypassing the official diplomatic channels, Russian Chief of Staff General Valeri Guerassimov contacted his US counterpart General Joseph Dunford to inform him of his fear of a false flag chemical attack in Ghouta. Dunford took this information vey seriously, and alerted US Defense Secretary General Jim Mattis, who referred the matter to President Donald Trump. In view of the Russian insistence that this piece of foul play was being prepared without the knowledge of the Pentagon, the White House asked the Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, to identify those responsible for the conspiracy.
We do not know the result of this internal enquiry, but President Trump acquired the conviction that his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, was implicated. The Secretary of State was immediately asked to interrupt his official journey in Africa and return to Washington.”
Trump also defied his advisors by making a congratulatory phone call to Putin.
I think you may be underestimating Trump.
I agree. I think Trump does indeed dance for the ZioNazis on a regular basis, but occasionally he surprises and goes against the Narrative. You can tell much about a man by the nature of his enemies. Trump’s enemies are legion, and their name is Zionist.
When he says he thinks we can and should have good relations with Russia, I think he really believes it. Most Americans I know don’t give a hoot in hell about so-called Russian collusion, and certainly don’t want even more war. Of course, what ordinary Americans think doesn’t matter in terms of policy, but they have their say once every 4 years and generally what they wanted is less foreign intervention…the platform Trump ran on. To his credit, he hasn’t completely turned his back on that rhetoric, recent appointments notwithstanding. You really don’t know what to expect from him. In as much as I find that unsettling, I think it makes the neocons absolutely apoplectic, as they know they can’t totally rely on the White House to do their bidding. All I know for sure is that as much as I hate some of the things he’s done in office, I can always look at the alternative candidate and thank God she didn’t get elected.
If Trump was not a Zionazi tool, he’d be dead.
“You really don’t know what to expect from him”
Truer words were never spoken!
Meyssan is good on some things, off the mark on others. With respect to his theory that Tillerson was part of a conspiracy to false flag Syria, Meyssan is misguided.
Thierry Meyssan lives in Syria and is very well informed.
Not long before Rexxon was fired, I read a story in the media that if one read between the lines said that some in the government had been urging an attack on Syria, but had been unable to convince Trump. This was followed by a number of leaks and statements from the pro-nuclear-holocaust faction urging an attack, which the corporate media played up fully to the hilt. From that, it seemed even more clear that at least some wanted to destroy human civilization, but that they had not been given the approval to do so. And the one person who had the authority to say no was Trump.
It was just an impression from reading between the lines, and no one leaked from the White House on the pro-save-humanity position, or at least the corporate media didn’t run a story that would make Trump look good for saving all of our lives.
I also read the voltaire article but I found it more interesting that Pompeo was the one asked to investigate Tillerson – the replacement investigated the ousted.
Also why would the diplomatic arm – the state dept – be organising a false flag? Is that not usually done covertly by the lettered agncies with or without the state dept or whitehouse knowledge or authority? Plausible deniability and all that.
A curious promise purportedly uttered by Bolton in talk with Trump: “I will not start any new wars”
Bolton: “I will not start any new wars.”
Hmm… even if I believed what Bolton said, I have to wonder, what’s his definition of a “new” war?
Is the Syrian conflict “new”?
And what about the Israeli loss to Hezbollah in 2006? I don’t remember any peace treaty signing ceremony. Would a resumption of hostilities be “new” by Bolton’s lights?
Interesting, although Meyssan’s theory doesn’t make too much sense. One would assume that a false flag operation such as described would be handled by Intelligence, most likely CIA. I can’t see how Tillerson as Secretary of State would have access to the resources (para-military, media, etc) to have played a significant role even if true. Such a false flag is not a simple operation. Is Meyssan suggesting Tillerson acted alone? If not, whose orders was he following?
Col. L. Fletcher Prouty has given some interesting insights into the operation of the CIA. If this story were true, Pompeo would have most likely found nothing in such an investigation. And, the persons behind such a false flag would have been CIA career officers, certainly not the Secretary of State.
A much simpler explanation for Tillerson’s dismissal is that he wasn’t sufficiently enthusiastic about withdrawing from the Iran deal and proceeding along the path to war.
Tillerson is well connected in London. He follows the ‘intellectual’ elite behind this mess. He isone of the leaders of the whole thing… In a way, I am glad Trump found out. I would thank Thierry Meyssan for telling the story.
I think Tillerson was a useful idiot, not the prime mover. Still, significant considering his cabinet position.
(Note to mod: drat, missed a tag, reposting to correct the mistake)
This is by far the most important point of all.
The firing of Rex Tillerson exposes a factional divide within the Anglo-American enterprise. Tillerson is a committed Neocon, both Anglo and Zionist, and promoter of transnational (Zionist) corporate power. He was working towards the destruction of the Deparment of State, on behalf of the world’s most powerful criminal cabal. He was not, as mainstream propaganda would have you believe, one of the “adults in the room.”
How Rex Tillerson Wrecked the State Department
The dimunition of US power is a project on behalf of what is sometimes reffered to as the ‘Octopus’, an alliance of Neocon/Neolib and certain hardcore Anglo-Zionists, taking direction from the Finance/Big Oil/Media complex centred on the City of London, directly and indirectly representing control of perhaps between 40-50% of all wealth in existence, and historically spawned over eight centuries ago from the Intelligence apparatus of the Republic of Venice.
The Spy Chiefs of Renaissance Venice: Intelligence Leadership in the Early Modern World
Almost every major geopolitical event since the 13th century, from the Crusades to the conquest of Byzantium by Venetian sponsered Islamo-Turkic warriors, to the Reformation when Venetian agent Martin Luther posted his 95 theses, the Thirty Years War which killed perhaps one third of Europe’s population, US and French Revolutions, US Civil War, World Wars I & II, Bolshevik Revolution and more recently the ‘game changing’ murder of thousands of people on September 11, 2001, all together representing plots and machinations of the Octopus.
Featured in the recent Bond film Spectre, this yet to be broken criminal conspiracy has over centuries taken control of all Italian and German states, Spain, Portugal, and was responsible for the founding of the Dutch Republic before finally making it’s way to England where it was consolidated after the English Civil War (1642-1651), whereupon it guided the historic expansion of the criminal enterprise we call the British Empire. In respect of this tradition some British Parliamentarians still refer to themselves as ‘Venetians.‘
Certain Pentagon Generals represent a Militarist/Authoritarian and Nationalist alliance of interests opposed to the Octopus, including senior leadership of the CIA and Mike Pompeo who is a key individual, plus other US-centric interests who worry about how collapsing the US dollar will affect their relative power vis a vis the London-based Octopus crime family. This group takes inspiration from much derided ‘Larouchies,’ long grinding axes in anticipation of a takedown of Perfidious influence eminating from the UK, and who together rode Donald Trump to a ‘surprise’ victory, or else seized his Presidency and the Whitehouse in an unstated coup d’etat. They have formed an alliance and are now cooperating with Russia and others in a bid to tame this many-tentacled beast.
None of this is a mystery to the parties involved. The firing of Tillerson by Trump, in humiliating fashion via Twitter and while he was on official business, was the signal for the Octopus that it was losing the struggle for control, occurring as a result of Tillerson’s direct implication in the plot to launch a chemical false flag operation against Syria, and which led to the panicked and reactive Skirpal operation, an attempt to create the environment in which the Whitehouse would be compelled into signing onto a large scale attack by in-theatre European US and NATO forces most likely also involved in the conspiracy, targetting closely intermingled Russo-Syrian forces thus threatening a possible outbreak of nuclear war, and just as the last pockets of Octopus-backed terrorist fighters in Eastern Ghouta look set to be defeated.
‘Rexit,’ as some have called it, occurred just after Russian Chief of Staff General Valeri Gerassimov contacted his US counterpart General Joseph Dunford, warning him of the chemical weapons plot and expressing Russia’s grave concern. Dunford took the matter seriously and according to Thierry Meyssan made steps leading directly or indirectly to Tillerson’s dismissal, which unleashed a series of responses by the Octopus including the poisoning Sergei Skirpal, his daughter and a police officer, or so we are told. It should be mentioned the Russians have been refused consular access to their citizen, Skirpal’s daughter, while the police officer was released. I doubt we will ever hear from Skirpal or his daughter again, so this is as usual very nasty business on the part of the Anglo and Zionist Deep State Cabal.
Four days to declare a Cold War
Much more could be said about who is working with whom, including questions concerning the exact roles of McMaster and Kelly, the former replaced yesterday by Walrus P.R. guy John Bolton, the untethered behaviour of certain US-NATO players acting in tandem with the UK-centred Octopus, and the positions of other participants including the government of Iran, including longtime agent of the Octopus President Hassan Rouhani, recruited whilst studying law in Scotland and the Iranian point man during the Iran-Contra period. Also critical is the position of Turkey, which appears to be doing the bidding of the Pentagon national-militarist faction, in cooperation with Russia, yet remains closely tied to the UK directed Muslim Brotherhood and Gladio stay behind networks including the Grey Wolves, who remain powerful and have been the main providers of logistical support to terrorists fighting for the overthrow of the government of Syria, and from which Erdogan and his family have profitted handsomely.
Interestingly with regards to the response of Turkey to the firing of Tillerson and announcement of Pompeo as his replacement, there is much apparent discomfort in Ankara. During the coup ‘attempt’ in July 2016, or perhaps it was more of an ‘event,’ Pompeo made a tweet in which he likened Turkey, alongside Iran, to a “totalitarian Islamic dictatorship.” Whether this represented his view at the time, or misdirection as is likely given he was Director of the CIA at the time, this suggests the possibility that the Pentagon may have staged the coup against Erdogan, perhaps weakly so it would fail and reinforce a central player, or else to remove him because he is perceived as an ally of the Octopus.
Erdogan impatient to charge ahead in Syria as Ankara sizes up Pompeo
It should further be noted that the Muslim Brotherhood has been reported as partnered with Iran and specifically the ‘liberal’ faction within that country led obstensibly by Hassan Rouhani. At the same time Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has been identified as an opponent of the Iranian President by Thierry Meyssan, a highly reliable reporter with respect to the internal politics of Iran. This likely means the leader of the Revolutionary Guard, Qassem Soleimani, is himself working with both the Russians and Pentagon in Syria, demonstrating loyalties and alliances do not necessarily correspond to national boundries or perceptions generated by media.
A wind of secularism blows over the Muslim world
Donald Trump’s speech in Riyadhh has sparked a wave of declarations against terrorism and against political Islam. The Arab world is expressing its thirst for secularism at the very moment that it is being misrepresented in Europe and used against religions. Faced with this breath of liberty, the British are organising the camp of political Islam around Qatar, Iran, Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood.
When Trump promised to “drain the swamp,” one must wonder by now, was he actually speaking of finally emptying the black lagoon of Venice?
Very interesting post, although it seems to me you are trying to force together a lot of pieces to the puzzle which just don’t fit. You cite a New Yorker article as evidence that Tillerson is an agent of the international cabal you and others have referred to as the “Octopus”. Here is the first problem. The New Yorker is not a voice of American Nationalism or isolationism. Together with most major media in the US and other Western countries, it is a voice of the globalists, that is “the Octopus”. Criticism of Tillerson by the New Yorker would seem to me the same as criticism by the “Octopus”.
This statement seems also somewhat problematical:
The dimunition of US power is a project on behalf of what is sometimes referred to as the ‘Octopus’,
But the US is not an independent player, it is also a vassal state of the “Octopus” serving as global enforcer through the US military and intelligence agencies. The US financial system has been controlled by international interests at least since 1913. The theme throughout the major US (globalist, Octopus) media is that US engagement with the world should not decrease. This includes the New Yorker article you quote. The US political system (since Citizens United) is more than ever controlled by big money. So it would seem to me that the US is already controlled by the “Octopus”. Why would they want to act against their own asset?
Certain Pentagon Generals represent a Militarist/Authoritarian and Nationalist alliance of interests opposed to the Octopus
This is a somewhat extraordinary statement. These Generals are acting on their own behalf? If not, whose interests are they serving? This really needs some supporting evidence.
When Trump promised to “drain the swamp,” one must wonder by now, was he actually speaking of finally emptying the black lagoon of Venice?
Here’s what Trump had to say about the slogan:
“Funny how that term caught on, isn’t it?” Trump mused during a rally this month (Dec 2016 DH) in Des Moines, Iowa. “I tell everyone, I hated it. Somebody said ‘drain the swamp’ and I said, ‘Oh, that is so hokey. That is so terrible.’”
“I said, all right, I’ll try it,” Trump continued. “So like a month ago I said ‘drain the swamp’ and the place went crazy. And I said ‘Whoa, what’s this?’ Then I said it again. And then I start saying it like I meant it, right? And then I started to love it, and the place loved it. Drain the swamp. It’s true. It’s true. Drain the swamp.”
I’ve long doubted whether there is still civilian control of the military in America.
There have been several instances of the American military directly defying an order from their commander in chief.
— early in Trump’s term Trump stated he was ordering a carrier from the Indonesia area up to threaten North Korea. A few days later, the carrier was spotted further south. There was a bogus cover story about how the White House didn’t call the right person and give the order in the right way or something like that. But if the President tells the SecDef of Joint Chiefs of Staff he wants something, then that’s an order from the commander in chief. The military blatantly defied an order from the commander in chief.
— During the Bush/Cheney years, an Admiral Mullen, then Chair of the JCS defied a Bush order to attack Iran.
I first noticed this during Bill Clinton when there were times the military openly defied the Commander in Chief. The most public was over gays in the military. The commander in chief said ‘make it so’, the military said ‘hell no’. Later there was an incident with Indonesia where a senior officer was supposed to deliver a critical message to the Indonesian military over East Timor and the massacres there. The officer did not, and in fact said the opposite. The Commander-in-chief had to order the officer to turn his plane around and deliver the message the commander-in-chief wanted delivered.
Of course, usually there is not such disagreement. The Military is so powerful in America with most of Congress all bought by defense contractors and the media firmly in their pocket and getting script approval from the Pentagon that usually the military gets its way and gets the civilian government to give them the orders they want.
@Anonymous Good points. The problem I have is that I cannot see the benefit to a general to be involved in some sort of cabal. I can appreciate the military refusing an order which they are not capable of carrying out. The question that is less clear is: does the military high command serve other masters? The generals often seem to serve the needs of the defense industry. As rewards, when they retire, they get cushy jobs as executives of MIC companies. Then too, the CIA has been active in penetrating and influencing the Pentagon for decades. To quote L. Fletcher Prouty:
. . . Control of a good share of what the Pentagon is doing is more important to the CIA than control over the government of Jordan or Syria. . . .
So do the generals actually run policy? under their own direction? I don’t know. For me that’s a stretch.
The problem with this theory is that it appears to go against everything we’ve known about Tillerson.
Tillerson has not been a voice in Trump’s administration for this sort of action. On the contrary, with Tillerson’s background as a chairman of Exxon, Tillerson has been a deal-maker. When Trump makes threats against Kim in NK, it was Tillerson who was pushing for negotiations to try to reach a deal. Not too long ago, we were hearing that the appointment of Tillerson was a sign of Trump’s collusion with the Russians because Tillerson had made deals with the Russians while at Exxon.
Tillerson had been trying to clear out the Hillary neocons from the State Dept.
Overall, the impression was that Tillerson was acting as Trump’s pooper-scooper. Going along behind Trump and trying to clean up Trump’s messes.
And the fact that he was replaced by a belligerent political hick like Pompeo who’s been much more vocal about wanting war and conflict and Syria also seems to work against this theory. The general trend of all of these changes in recent weeks is that Trump is getting rid of the people who wanted to negotiate and is replacing them with a lot of pro-war hawks.
So, this becomes yet another charge made without any evidence, and in this case one that seems to go against everything we could see in the month’s previous.
“The problem with this theory is that it appears to go against everything we’ve known about Tillerson.” Well, what we know about TRex is what the forces behind him want us to know…
David Hollander above says that we should not trust the New Yorker. Well, again, with that article, they may have tried to press TRex to go ahead and do more and faster! As to the claim that “…the US is not an independent player” as a way to dispute Where-Wolf’s theory, we have to remember that this may have been ‘completely true’ in the past; but no more ‘completely true’ at present. Additionally, all the discussion about the ‘swamp’ may have been just a way to dilute the importance of what had been said, and to make it more popular – a media master’s play.
Everything we find out through the MSM should be taken carefully – they do not want us to know what is really going on. Even Trump is playing with the media – it is a question of survival, I guess.
Or Tillerson was set up.
Precisely to instigate the current personnel change – warmongers all.
“Hence this month’s historical developments which have placed Russia and the West in a direct collision course. As I said above, the Empire can now either fold or double down.”
The appointment of Bolton would suggest that they have decided to double down.
But it could work the other way. Does Bolton and the Neocons have the ability to make a convincing case for WW3? I doubt it.
My feeling is that Trump is giving sufficient rope to the Neocons to hang themselves. Despite being in the key posts that would be needed to make war they will not be able to come out for all out war.
Trump is a Neocon, he simply has a weakness of heart for America, but that heart will give way to ‘pragmatism’ with regards to Israeli Zionist demands. He may wage trade wars and speak mightily about bringing jobs back, he may renegotiate trade deals as he sees fit, but he will also increase military spending, and empower the military intelligence complex to do what it does best, create conflict. His positions are opposed by an internal disconnect that he does not seem to recognize. Until the U.S. is free from the Israeli lobby, the power of a privately owned central bank, and an out of control military/intelligence complex, nothing of lasting substance will remain once he’s gone. He will try as he may to make America Great Again, but he will fail miserably to achieve anything of lasting value.
Those who have assigned a grand 3d chess superpower to Trump must be having an increasingly difficult time computing the reality on the ground. His last three hand picked additions to the administration surely must call into question his desire for a deescalation of global conflict. It seems rather that he is seeking as many knuckleheads, meatheads, and warmongers as he can, in complete opposition to his initial campaign remarks with regard to American military adventurism – which he claimed to disavow.
A few things would help change my mind, a few things that I very highly doubt will occur. First, Trump drops all threats of prosecution of Julian Assange. Second, Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Podesta (for starters) are arrested for crimes too numerous to mention. And lastly The United States moves to audit the Federal Reserve.
“Second, Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Podesta (for starters) are arrested for crimes too numerous to mention.”
That’s probably not going to happen:

Who knows? It just might happen!!!
Trump has never been a neocon.
However, in a Washington where Congress has all been bought by defense contractors, and where the media is owned by corporate interests as well, it seems that Trump doesn’t have the power to oppose them. Especially not since as a real-estate developer Trump is greedy and looks out for his own interests, thus he’s apparently been convinced that going along with the neocons is the best thing for the Trump family.
Trump has been a public figure for quite some time now, and like many of the charges made against Trump, the evidence is lacking that for this entire time he’s been a neocon.
Trump differs only from hardcore Neocons in the sense that he would likely think America first, however, his notion of America first very much includes close ties to Israel. Lets call him ‘Neocon Lite’ if you will. Whether his support for Israel is induced, or willingly offered makes no difference, the end result is the same.
It makes sense, jiri. I also hope that Trump does what the people wanted him to do. Somehow, I hope. Hope is the last thing to die…
Trump has been outed as a Zionist lackey, his fetish for Iranian conflict and his seeking after warmongering associates proves this point quite clearly. He seems to intuit that war with Russia is suicidal, but fails on the other hand to recognize the inevitability of conflict if he continues his wars for Israel.
Amongst all this, North Korea is a strange one. They cannot financially survive much longer, because Chuna has supported the anglo sanctions against them, foolishly. Wouldnt be surprising if after the meeting of Trump and Kim, some kind of preliminary Unification of Korea stratergy is announced. The Anglo now want a unified Korea under pro anglo rule- a thorn against China and Russia. Kim will go along with it, in return for immunity from human rights charges. Perhaps for years USA has been even helping DPRK, to provide an excuse for militarisation of the pacific, in reality against China. DPRK and its one dimensional leadership cult lacks the spiritual basis of opposition to the Anglo, which Russia has, and they are more ultranationalist-facsist than communist.
Kim is CIA.
North Korea’s heroin output, traded via the British East India Company, i mean, Jewish Mafia’s CIA, may only be 5% of Afganisthan’s production, but is still a $ 50 billion per year business.
In short: ZionMedia’s daily fairy tales on North Korea have not only fooled the masses but also most ‘truthers’. Ha ha.
I do not believe a word of what you are saying – it seems just a flthy smear, ziopropaganda against NK.
North Korea stirs up more trouble to Western imperialism in half an hour’s time than what the Western Left has accomplished in all its pathetic history. No defeatism, no utopianism, and no Western imperial arrogance.
The only way the American Fourth Reich… my bad, “Land of the Free” … can maintain its ambitions for world dominance is through war–whether that be through propaganda wars, economic trade wars, proxy terrorist wars, conventional war, or a nuclear World War 3.
The Americans are like a rabid dog foaming at the mouth. They are possessed by some malign, if not demonic, force. They will not stop their war rampage until they are put down hard, and then punished for their unending crimes.
Pentagon Officials Search for “Big War” against Russia and China. A World War Might Sound Crazy, But It Could be America’s Last Act of Desperation
I saw a rabid raccoon a few weeks ago here in Toronto – it was chasing women down the road, then it blocked traffic and started following me and my brother. When it tried to cross a narrow bridge over a river it got run over by a Chinese woman
Perhaps a prophetic metaphor for rabid Anglozionists?
The USA’s real religion all along has been worship of death. That cult has its roots in the Old Testament/Torah, which contains the oldest extant descriptions of genocide, how to effect it, and the ‘religious’ justification for it. Not to say that the Israelites invented genocide-that is no doubt an ancient manifestation of human destructiveness. But the Israelites codified and sanctified genocide, and the Talmud unambiguously states that killing civilians, even children and babies (if it can be said that they would grow up to ‘oppose the Jews’)is not just permissible, but a ‘mitzvah’ or religiously sanctified ‘good deed’.
Not, of course, that ALL Jews think this way. Many have long rejected this Orthodox Rabbinical worldview, but the ruling elites, secular fascistic and clerico-fascistic, in Israel and the Diaspora plainly do. But this Old Testament lust for killing, despite being mostly mythical, has infected certain strains of so-called ‘Christian’ behaviour in the USA. These creatures are as much true followers of the Nazarene as Ted Bundy (and Jesus is REVILED by the Talmudists, who imagine him sitting in Hell up to his neck in boiling faeces)but see their ‘religion’ as an antidote to their dread of Death, which they worship in a perverse over-reaction. Support for Israel by ‘Christian Zionists’ is quite Evil in its utter cynicism, the Christian Zionists only doing so in order to hasten the End Times where the Jews will have to convert, or be obliterated.
So, the fact that the upper ranks of both Israel and the USA, and puppet dystopias like the Evil harridan May’s little bankrupt kakastocracy, are driving for universal obliteration is hardly surprising. These creatures are Evil and insane in the deepest spiritually malevolent fashion. They may, in fact, be the emissaries of the Devil, if he exists, but they definitely represent the diabolic impetus to kill and destroy that lies within human psyches. I really think that we are on Death Row. Bolton is an appointment, in my opinion,akin to choosing Heydrich, only without the Blonde Beat’s intelligence and charisma.
“Just read again what Simonian said about the western “values” in the quote above. For most Russians “Europe” reeks of Napoleon, “White identity” of Hitler and “Western Christianity” of the creation of the Ukraine and the “Eastern Crusades”
-Derp white identity? Nobody speaks of white identity, anyone that spoke of any white identity in the western world will be thrown in prison. Whites are not allowed to have any identity. The very notion is called white supremacist in liberal media.
What people speak about however is a cultural, militarily and economical union with Russia, of course Russians are the same race as Germans or Poles or Swedes but that is a given and nobody mentions that for above mentioned reason. Such a union would basically render USA obsolete in Eurasia and usher in a new era of prosperity for Europe. Combined W.Europe with E.Europe would become the most powerful block on earth. Why is one of the reasons why USA created the Ukrainian crisis, to split W.Europe from Russia.
Everything for a union between W.Europe and W.Europe is already there, the infrastructure, the pipelines, the economies ties, the demographic centers.. Everything that is needed is a few signatures on a paper.
Sadly W.Europe is firmly under the boot of USA, and unless new parties comes to power in W.Europe we are unlikely to see any but the most meager attempt at from W.Europe at following their own interests.. Such as we can see with Nord Steam 2.
“Just read again what Simonian said about the western “values” in the quote above. For most Russians “Europe” reeks of Napoleon, “White identity” of Hitler and “Western Christianity” of the creation of the Ukraine and the “Eastern Crusades”
No surprises here.

NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) ?
Good idea to define acronyms, and in this case perhaps provide a link to a good description of just what it is. 20 years or so ago, I bought a set of “self-improvement” audio tapes on this subject and found that I literally could not listen to them while driving my car without risking my life and those of others. However, NLP is an amazingly successful technique for reseting the neural “firmware” of the human brain (and, by association it’s complex systems of software “action apps,” such as the activating functions of electro-chemical messages created and distributed by certain glands.
I always listen closely for even a suggestion that a “lone-wolf” terror event perpetrator to have had some connection, however slight, to a “government” or military organization. I think that the frenzy over establishing “motive” for murders such as occurred at a music festival in Las Vegas, or even this latest thing at a high school in Florida. Often, it seems, once some documents or electronic evidence establishes a “motive” for the dastardly act (usually eliciting shrieks for better control of “mentally ill” persons) we also hear enough of that individual’s history to see that there was an opportunity for him to have “adjustments” made to that neural firmware and software. Too many have been said to have had “problems” in military service or to have been “known” to the FBI, who failed to connect dots and “do something” (illegal?) to stop the process leading to the terror committed.
So, please do not leave readers wondering what NLP means — everybody should be aware and understand the tools that the evil minions have at their disposal. And yes, mass applications of NLP are used to “adjust” the hardware and software of the neural systems of whole cultures and subcultures (known as batch processing in an earlier age of programming).
At some point, when I improve my “memory” problems, I will be very interested to read Scott Humor’s research reports on augumented and virtual realities, for I think it is about digital advancements in that general field. Perhaps the development of “blockchain”– technology platforms is an attempt to protect against these tools of the evil minions; and as more applications of the blockchain are developed and distributed, I wonder — will the evil minions infiltrate and attempt to crash this “resistence”? I suppose that such efforts are well underway. I do not discount the possibility that “Miles Mathis” is in on that project. Strange that he is such a great artist but will not paint anything but fresh, nubile, young females. You’d think that, at least occasionally, he would get a notion to paint some mountains or fruit in a bowl, such challenging subjects as they are (not sarcasm). Just strange, in my opinion.
Ah, well. I am just a little old lady thinking “out-loud” before a group of readers of “virtual community” associates, right? Just questions, no answers; but I do think that it behooves all to at least think on these matters and be very observant and aware.
Anyway, I encourage all to define acronyms and initialisms — at least those of you who want readers to understand your writing.
OK, here’s one. I often refer to VCO, my charming wife of well over a decade and counting. Since I am 100% politically correct, I came up with military phonetics for her: Victor Charlie Oscar, VCO for short, aka Vertically Challenged One, all 1.45 meters and 45 kilos of take no prisoners Russian lady.
Love it, Aus. Thanks.
Grandma’s editorial obsession countered by such meaningful brevity. Touche!
My best wishes to you and VCO.
Right lunacy is no better than left lunacy. Different colors of the same idiocy.
This article is by far the best article ever written on this blog. It describes the state of affairs in the world in a very accurate manner. For some in the West, the beginning of an eternal phase of total domination of the this world started in the last decade of the last millennium. And now they are so horrified, indignant and in a state of complete denial as to how short lived such an “eternal” phase has been. All human languages combined cannot describe that sense of loss, and hence the total hysterics and shrieking and potentially very violent fits of anger that the West is so nauseatingly putting on display across the entire Western World and across those countries that are so willingly malleable to the wishes hammer of the Hegemon. Why does the West think that they have the absolute right to dictate and plunder and murder and ethnically cleanse? And all done while accusing the other side of such atrocities. If anything this reflects a state of absolute atheism; if they had the least doubt that God existed, they would have behaved differently, but they have resolved this issue within themselves. Life is purely mechanical and biochemical,nothing more nothing less.
where are the other voices expressing a different point of view or at least discussing objectively the policies of the Western leadership? Does the West have real journalists, seriously? I’m talking about the MSM here.
The absence of real and honest journalism is the most shocking aspect of the political life in the post-Soviet Union world of today, in the West that is.
In the space of a very short quarter of a century the Westerners have been turned into total zombies. The saddest truth is that there is absolutely zero exaggeration in such a statement. If a layperson like myself can see the pathetic state of affairs in this world like I do, how much clearer things should be for those “think tanks” involved in public policy across the West? I’m lost for words. We are in a very dark place indeed.
We have attained an incredible level of technical know-how, science and technology, but there is a directly proportional regression in terms of human rights and the distribution of wealth in the world today on the other side of the same coin. I suspect the invisible hand and fist of the market has a lot to do with all this. The excesses of the market in a capitalist society can be very dangerous if left unchecked; state sovereignty and borders need to be done away with for capitalism to keep creating wealth for the very few. It’s never enough!
A world-wide moratorium on military spending for a meager one decade would literally change the face of the Earth, but Alas!.., we aren’t mature enough for that lofty goal.
“Glory to man in the Heights!”…how miserable!
How low have we descended!
@Billawees: “state sovereignty and borders need to be done away with for capitalism to keep creating wealth for the very few. It’s never enough!”
“Nothing is enough for the man to whom enough is not enough” — Epicurus
In the ME they have a saying similar to this: nothing satisfies(or fills up) the eyes of a greedy person except the soil of the grave, meaning greed is a life long pursuit that dies only when the greedy person dies.
Greed is not born with us; it is an acquired value. WHEN we change the socio-economic system we live in, greed will go away.
Greed is rooted in hatred of others, because greed can only manifest itself as theft from others, including the natural world. Hence cults like Judaism, American Exceptionalism and capitalism, rooted in fear and hatred of the other, are always devoted to endless, insatiable, greed, and genocidal hatred of those who must be its victims.
And, labeling these greedy drives and impulses as expressions of high morality and idealism!
Epicurus concurred with Aristotle who noted that greed was insatiable.
I was one of those who rejoiced when Trump won, mainly because he was not Hillary.
In hindsight, his plan to get along with Russia was never going to work, it was doomed to fail from the start, because he wanted to be friends with Russia against China and Iran, and the Russians would sooner shoot themselves in the knee before they would consider betraying their allies for a fickle chance at becoming friendly with psychopathic lunatics, liars, thieves and murders who have no love for anyone but themselves and would not hesitate to stab them in the back as son as they got the chance.
The appointment of John Bolton is scraping along the line to a full blown declaration of war against the sovereign parts of the globe. Absolutely nothing good can or will come of it. Turning the BRICS or even the SCO into a military alliance against NATO is starting to sound like a good idea to me, even though objectively, I know it’s a terrible idea. But in light of this development, following that dimwitted buffoon Pompeo, a military alliance might be about the only way to stop a World War. Clearly, Russia’s nuclear superiority did not have that effect.
“Clearly, Russia’s nuclear superiority did not have that effect.”
Really? I think that all of what is happening is a result of Mr Putin’s speech on the 1st May 2018. ‘Our western friends’ are over-reacting, now. They cannot even think straight. I hope that this phase will pass and they eventually admit defeat, although I do recognise the danger.
The list of events presented here by The Saker is a proof that Mr Putin’s speech had a very big impact (and I am sure that Mr Putin knew this would happen).
Putin did not announce that Russia currently has nuclear superiority. What Putin announced is that within a few years, then Russia will have nuclear superiority.
Putin announced several weapons systems that have completed and passed testing. One of them is entering production. This means it will be at best several years before these weapon systems are fully produced and deployed.
This appears to have been highly dangerous, as it convinced some of the neocons that the best time for World War 3 was now, before these weapons were fully deployed.
That’s right. However, my comment was not about ‘superiority’, but about Russia capacity and determination to retaliate. Although Serg did not say so, he was referring to the impact of Mr Putin’s speech.
Anyway, what is ‘superiority’ when you can inflict the same damage to the enemy, meaning annihilation? The US/UK and their ‘allies’ (meaning vassals) are attacking Russian friends because they want Russia to capitulate. They would not attack Russia directly – not now, not ever.
Mr Putin’s speech made it clear that Russia is prepared for war, will retaliate, will defend Russian allies – which, in a way, are extensions of Russia… That is: Russia will not submit and is determined to defend the multipolar world (against the fascist unipolar world). Russia is sovereign and will be sovereign forever! ‘Are you listening?’
There are rumors that say this whole charade was designed to trigger NATO article 5, meaning the solidarity pact that if one is attacked, all members are considered attacked and respond collectively, but the other influential states didn’t bite and while declaring their solidarity and support by saying Russia is “highly likely” responsible, left open the possibility of another culprit, unlike that dimwit Theresa May and her band of imbeciles. It was also designed to try and remove Russia from their permanent position at the UNSC, thus taking away their veto, leaving only China for them to dispose of to get a western dictated rubber-stamp UN.
Both of those would mean an open declaration of war against Russia, with a “highly likely” probability of hot conflict breaking out.
And I considered the Russian nuclear arsenal superior to western rockets before March 1st. They had the supersonic SARMAT already, one of which would be enough to render an area as big as France an uninhabitable wasteland. Not to mention that some of the multiple weapons systems Putin announced are already operational, according to him.
Which means, if they are willing to risk hot war on a half arsed, fabricated bogus story like this, the message to “back down or else” was not received. I think it was planned in advance of his speech and executed in spite of it, not because of it.
Remove Russia from their permanent position at the UNSC is just empty talk. This would require changing the UN Charter, which process requires all 5 perm members to agree:
– to take the matter to a vote in the UNGA
– which vote has to get a 2/3 majority of the 192 UN member States
– and will again require ratification by a 2/3 majority – including by all five UNSC permanent members
(Article 108 of the UN Charter)
Excellent article, and to the point. Nothing needs to be added, as all has been said.
The point is that Washington and Wall Street have overplayed their hand as far as Europe goes. The US elite has lost touch with reality, finding itself in a very dangerous psychological situation. It has trouble grasping that times change. It is still living in the past, in 1945, when the US had prestige. It does not have it any more, as Wall Streets imperial ambitions have ruined that prestige.
Washington thinks that the rest of the world will believe any piece of infantile propaganda nonsense that it puts forward. Worse, both the political and military elites are under the impression that Europe is willing to fight World War Three, because it has already fought two world wars. That is just not the case. In fact nothing is further from the truth, as Europe is sick of wars.
And yes, there will be a rift between the European and American elites, something that analysts have been predicting since last year. The most foolish thing Washington did while introducing new sanctions against Russia was to threaten Europe with sanctions if the Nord Stream – 2 gas pipeline was built, which for Europe was a nasty shock, as it created the impression that it was reduced to an imperial subject. This act alone turned European eyes even more towards Russia and Putin. Nobody in Europe wants to be sacrificed for Wall Streets imperial ambitions, certainly not in a war.
As things stand now, the biggest loser in Europe may well turn out to be Britain, ostensibly Americas oldest ally in Europe (although that honor goes to France). This Anglo-Saxon-Anglo-Zionist policy of confronting Russia is not going too well in Continental Europe, certainly not in Germany, which in the end will turn towards Russia, pulling others with it. Britain may well find itself alone. Washington’s threats of sanctions against Europe was a nasty shock. The foolish false flag that was initiated in England was an unpleasant surprise, convincing Continental Europe that London and Washington will use any method to pick a fight with Russia. The results will not be as London and Washington expect. As far as I can see such policies will even more lead to the disintegration of both the EU and NATO.
I partly agree with you, B.F..
The decision to go to war is not made by the English, North American, French, German… people, but by the elites, who are desperate. The politicians, who represent the elites, just follow orders.
If Mr Putin had not delivered his fantastic 1st March 2018 speech, we would indeed be in danger of a real war. Now, the elites know that they cannot go any further – unless they want to die. This is why the UK is exposing itself, again, to the ridiculous, with another slander against Russia. When France and Germany accept the argument that the UK presents as ‘evidence’ that Russia did it, it means that their elites are just playing the game together with the UK’s. The objective is to delay the dissolution of the system because, recognising their defeat – and negotiating a new system of international relations – would inevitably lead to the end of capitalism as we know it.
“As far as I can see such policies will even more lead to the disintegration of both the EU and NATO.”
I sure hope you are right.
I see no advantage to Europe in following the UK-USA path of hysteria and mindless provocation.
I hope the Merkel-Macron mouthings on “solidarity” are designed to placate the rabid dogs, while cooler heads deploy back channels to Russia.
John Bolton is recognized internationally as a deranged warmonger who is ideological and unstable.
Most persons therefore instinctively view his elevation to the post of Nation Security Advisor as unwise and troubling, to put it mildy.
The Israelis on the other hand are seemingly estactic and overjoyed about his appointment.The hope is that finally, by way of America, Israelis will get the wars that they have always craved.
I guess its a no-brainer, that warmongers and cowards share a common bond.
Those who shoot Palestinian kids in the face and quadraplegics in the head on an almost daily basis, are hoping that Johnny will help them kill some more across the region and beyond.
I however, have a feeling that this lunatic will escalate America’s overreach, and from that perespective, his appointment can be viewed as a necessary step in the inevitable winding down of the American Empire.
Remember, as of March 1, 2018, the world is no longer the same.
Vlad made that clear.
We now have hypersonic vehicles in our arsenal to ensure that when the crazies run amok, we can dispatch them with haste.
The UK is attempting to mouse trap Trump into playing the role of the King of the South in Daniel 8. The role will be played. That is a fact. One couldn’t expect any other outcome. So much is invested in Daniel 8 playing out exactly for after all how could the entity find authority in discrepancy.?
Great article. I think Trump is being underestimated. People think he is stupid and captured by NeoCons but I don’t buy that. He is somewhat boxed in with Mueller probe etc but is fighting his way out. The man is trying to turn a super tanker with an insubordinate crew. He is “America First” remember, not American reduced to ashes.
What he is doing now is a standard negotiating tactic. Hints at talks with Putin but actions and appointments (Bolton, Pompeo) suggest tough line. All plays well with his opponents in Washington also, i.e. they think they have him where they want him. He is transferring his business negotiating experience to politics. He is not afraid to ignore and/or fire his advisors and he has a phone to call Putin directly whenever he wants. There is some trust between these two men at least I think. Also, top brass in Russia and USA talk to each and hopefully will keep a lid on things.
My guess is we appear to go to the brink but behind the scenes Trump and Putin are engineering a peace conference where everything is on the table and some kind of understanding is reach. If I’m right, then things are not as bad as they seem.
Chris: Check out this article and comment please.
Yeah, Rick, that seems about right to me. The West is going down the tubes. We can’t even defend our borders from unarmed “migrants” or our women and children from rape gangs without worrying about offending somebody. There is a sickness in our soul which will kill us off unless we find some kind of remedy.
I see Russia as a model for how we get out of this malaise. Return to tradition, religion, family, social nationalism, a paternalistic State as the servant of the People and friendship between brotherly nations of the European family.
Trump, for all his personal failings, seems to want something similar for America. Same throughout Eastern Europe and now even into some Western European states, like Italy. If we can just put aside our historical differences and rid ourselves of the malign influence of a certain tribe of people, then there is an opportunity with the current leadership in Moscow and Washington to get something worthwhile done. I suggest Russia needs this too as they will eventually become a Chinese vassal on current trends.
Very good article, Rick. Thanks for the link.
Consider the news earlier this year that the US had opened its first ever base in Israel. Immediately after the story broke a semi retraction, recalibration and clarification was made by the both parties…the US they said…had only set up its first accommodation facilities in Israel. The significance.?
Daniel 8 has it the King of the South places his tents between the holy mountain and the sea.
Things must align. Perfectly. Or the spell is broken. The spell’s aim is apostacy. The days of those that are not is all but come. That’s my five cents worth.
I agree with you, Chris.
At the height of the US presidential campaign – August 2, 2016 to be exact – Joe Bob Briggs published an article in Taki’s Magazine titled “Donald, You Ignorant Slut” ( http://takimag.com/article/donald_you_ignorant_slut_joe_bob_briggs/ ). Joe Bob’s from Texas (as you might have guessed) so brings a certain perspective and plain-spokenness to his writing. In this (very amusing) article he wrote:
Right now he’s fighting swamp creatures, and a big part of that fight involves separating the sheep from the goats — or, if you will, the domestic ‘jihadis’ from the ‘moderates.’ It takes time. It’s an iterative process. I think Bolton has been brought in partly because he seems to be in Trumps corner in the battle against those who are moving in to impeach him, as well as for what you said.
We should not underestimate this guy. He’s engaged in a very dangerous high-wire act, and so far has done some amazing tricks up there.
Chris, I have the same feeling! However, we have to admit that this would be against the will of the elites – they would be furious. The phone call to Mr Putin could have been done in secret – it would be safer for Mr Trump, I suppose. Let’s hope we are right.
EU not buying into Britain’s Russian nerve agent hoax
Sorry Azorka, it’s BS. They are in it with Brits as they are ruled by the same gang.
You were right. I would have had to know this.
No Woman, No Drive
All the while the Western little people get poorer and poorer. The most we can hope for is a spectacle on TV when Eurocrat/USA dignitaries roll over the ground pouncing on one another instead of civil debate! They can get training finesse for that in the Ukraine!
One can only hope Russian and Chinese spies “are” meddling in internal affairs to avert war!!
S, excellent summary although it adds to our uneasy feeling of desperation and inability to put some sense into those “elected” idiotic tools of Zio-Nazi swamp. It is also my feeling, that swamp is in a frenzy trying to promote a war against Russia, as they think that Russia does not have the ‘weapons yet”, but if given two more years Russia will be unstoppable, hence now is the time.
To all the pro-Trump voices, sorry people, but he came out of the closet some time ago. I never really liked him, but for a while I was hoping that maybe, just maybe he will prove himself to be a “man”.
As for Tillerson, the reason why he was dismissed is simple: he failed at all he was tasked with:
First of all DPRK, Turkey, Middle east, etc, etc. Even the idiots in SA stopped their sabre dances and sit quietly in the corner, as they can’t do $hit against “hungry Hutis” even with all the western mercenaries driving their overpriced war toys.

Clapper’s “fisures” (in the tapestry of lies) have prolapsed – as they say hemorrhoids sometimes do. The specific is that Empire has been seen to lose a major campaign – Syria.
In History of Empires it is this – the perception (and fact!) of losing to “inferior” forces – that triggers Imperial Collapse.
Imperial Collapse is always attended by war.
Bolton’s elevation to the seat next to the Imperial Throne is to be understood in such a context.
The Month – she is not over.
Is process of Imperial Collapse, and now Empire will join in glorious combat, and provide the evidence that Empire is finished.
Is possible that such a process will destroy humanity – which, after all, has been the method since 1492 (in the present example, but of course the mechanism is not new.
Dear Margareta simplifies the matter. China and Russia are old empires…and they know how to do the job (softly whenever possible and to the benefit of the peoples). The anglosaxon attempt is a failure because it, they, do not know how to run an empire. That’s why i, they, can not.
Again, the Month, she is not finished yet.
Yup…sadly not yet over or decided -as yet -for Syria east of Euphrates….
The United States is threatening sanctions against any company or bank that gets involved with Nord Stream II.
The United States is threatening Turkey with sanctions if the S-400 system goes through.
The United Kingdom is maneuvering the NATO/EU nations into a boycott of the Russian-sponsored world cup.
The United States is rebuilding the Syrian oilfields and will direct the oil and cash flows away from Syria.
Ukraine has been accepted as an applicant for entry into NATO. Expect NATO to move military forces into Ukraine.
All of these are more likely to work in favor of the United States than not, because the United States is capable of hurting every nation that does not comply more than Russia can help.
None of these are good for Russia. None of these entail the use of military force.
This has not been a good month for Russia and -much as I wish it were otherwise- the future is not looking good either.
@A.G.Brina. Could you kindly explain how the USA — a country which has no money to spare because it is over its head deep in debt — can financially “hurt every nation that does not comply”. What does EU need from USA? Russian industry and agriculture is thriving from EUSA financial blockade, so why should EU not Likewise thrive from being “sanctioned” by Uncle $cam?
“When thieves begin to sanction one another, honest people rejoice”.
Indeed, vary valid points raised by you. The fear of US sanctions is very silly unless we see that the elites and the middle classes in almost all countries, Russia and China included, swallowed wholesale the “American dream”, the myth of America being the “Shining beacon on the hill”, and America being the “Best and the greatest”. Kudos to Hollywood for that grand and total victory. With respect to matters economic, “globalized free trade” rules as the present ideology of the world, and is the true hegemon. Therefore it will take not just physical courage but intellectual and philosophical clarity to dethrone the hegemony of global capitalism and its principal henchman, namely America.
Think about it: A truly revolutionary change can be brought about very simply and peacefully if the people of the world voluntarily renounce goods and ideology made in America and by its western allies. America and its allies can then sanction the rest of the world!
that would be nice, you are forgetting even bds is targeted as hate speech.
if someone suggest doing the same for usa what would they do?
I enjoyed reading the article, and mostly agree with it.
When one component has clearly subverted the other component, https://www.aljazeera.com/investigations/thelobby/ , is there really anything meaningful in the “Anglo” component of the empire’s title as ostensibly used here (and other communities)?
The seeming ‘detachment’ of the empire’s leadership, from the best interests of the citizens has been touched upon many times in the past two years, and one could loosely apply the description, “crazy“, and “incoherent” to the empire’s policy and ‘public’ discourse, but evaluated in terms of the Torah-Pharisees-Talmud mythology-worshipping collective’s historic aims and methods, we see immediately that their definitive characteristic, “detachment and hatred for humanity“, has been, and continues to be consistent with the empire’s policy and ‘public’ discourse.
One could say that it is consistent with the “Anglo- historic definitive characteristics, and while partially valid, it is not a precise fit, and even that, only since the ‘messianic’ subversive actions of Oliver Cromwell, and the Rothchild financial subversion at the conclusion of the Napoleonic war, after which, the effective control of state policy began it’s clear subversion to Torah-Pharisees-Talmud mythology-worshipping collective’s agenda.
You might consider adding to the list of anti-social, seemingly self-destructive public policy of the empire, this latest initiation of trade war with China, and the pending clash between the U.S.A. and the second largest army in NATO, Turkey, which seems quite likely now.
Thanks for all the chuckles…
I like your comment, but would like to argue against your complaint against “Anglos”. You see, it’s the Anglos who make the noise, while the Zios hide behind the shrouds while pulling the strings.
btw: I am substantially from ‘Anglo, squatting on turtle island for a few centuries.
II simple re-iterate, the Anglos are being directed as to their role in the manipulations; let’s face it, the government of UK is just, perhaps more, farcical that the U.S.A. admin., truly, literally, ‘pathetic‘.
Where is the locus of control?
But I am evaluating esteemed community contributor (in my opinion), Where-Wolf http://thesaker.is/a-truly-historical-month-for-the-future-of-our-planet/#comment-500465 comment/narrative (which I’ve been exposed to components of before) , above.
Sad that the Britains have been actively devolved into the whining toadies, non?!
A curious factoid: “With the exception of the War on Afghanistan (October 2001) and the 1990-91 Gulf War, all major US-NATO and allied led military operations over a period of more than half a century –since the invasion of Vietnam by US ground forces on March 8, 1965– have been initiated in the month of March.”
Is there some occult invocation of the Roman Empire and the “Ides of March” that inspires the American Empire in its compulsive warmongering?

…and he’s back.
It might go all the way to closing pipes to Europe and, since (for now) China does need the US more than US needs China, possible reduction of Russian-Chinese trade and cooperation. Russia still can survive (and even prosper) if they have enough gold reserves to completely cut itself off from western banking system. But I obviously do not know if this is the case.
Today’s date is 27 July, 1914, time is two minutes before midnight. It’s that close, and while I’ve often said that ‘The War To End All Wars’ never ended, and in my opinion it didn’t, at this time we are right back to mere seconds before that fateful day in 1914 when the world as it was known then ended, albeit almost five years of horrendous hostilities did the actual destruction of empires.
The difference between then and now is several countries inhabiting various locations on the rock we call home have the ability to end not only empires but life as we know it.
We, meaning I and VCO, have watched this growing crisis since summer of 2013 and earlier and every time there’s been a glimmer of hope that things might not lead to war, some idiot, or herd of idiots, does their damnedest to shatter that illusion. VVP’s masterful speech of 01 March was, I think, the last viable effort to stop this madness and that speech was not ‘surrender’, it was a very clear explanation of what the consequences will be if Foggy Bottom/Five Points start open hostilities.
While it remains to be seen if clear minds, those with an intelligence level somewhat above that of a fried snail which by it’s very definition rules out most of UK and Brussels, understand what President Putin said as in essence a final warning against those who seek to destroy Russia and anyone aligned or doing business with her. I would bet the farm that what VVP said of new and improved weapons in that speech was by no means everything rattling around in his quiver and I will also bet the farm that some, if not all, that were mentioned as going in service ‘soon’ are, indeed, already in service.
Concerning the populace of the countries of europe and SehSha, while the media say nothing, there have apparently been some demonstrations against the coming war although I personally have not seen them. She Who Will Be Obeyed says she has, she has been glued to her computer for the last week and more, watching aghast as this current crisis has spiraled almost out of control. The little stinker did come up with an excellent idea, though, which gives credence to the saying ‘never annoy a Russian lady, thou whilst not enjoy life for a while, if ever’. Her thought was excellent and I lay it out for all of you.
She said those with the information should inform via the net and social media the names, addresses, work locations and haunts of all those who are screaming and advocating war with Russia or anyone else, top to bottom, as not a one of them is listening to their constituencies by any stretch of the imagination. While I am in no way advocating violence of any level against anyone, I know if I was one of ‘them’ and a crowd of a thousand were standing quietly in the street in front of my domicile, gated community or not, I would certainly have second thoughts about going against the wishes of my constituency or my fellow countrymen, and one can only hope that in the cranial vacuum inhabiting the space between ‘their’ ears, the couple of brain cells rocketing around in said vacuum may get close enough to generate a thought which would hopefully be along the lines of ‘uh oh’ at the very least. As the saying goes, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Bottom line, there’s hardly a thing any of we mere mortals can seemingly do to stop this onrush to war and reality is this war has been going on since early 14 in earnest. Sanctions are an act of war, each and every one of them. Attacks on sovereign countries without a formal declaration of War is a war crime and every single person involved in that attack, from the top dog to the lowliest mess hall worker, is guilty of war crimes. ALL of them. Will the day come when they are in the dock? Don’t know, but if we somehow survive the next round of open hostilities of this more than one hundred year war, methinks there will be trials and the work camps in Siberia up near the Arctic Circle may have some new faces inside the walls. One can only hope, after all.

It seems to me that it is a Western bias to see legal proceedings as the ultimate response to atrocities and injustice. And yet. What about the approaches of some Indigenous peoples, or the people of Rwanda, or the Chechens?
President Putin is a very strong ‘by the law’ advocate and if it does come to war and there’s enough of us left to sort out the mess, any actions concerning POW’s and/or detained political operatives will be completely ‘by the law’.
Kindly define the approaches of ‘some Indigenous peoples, or the people of Rwanda, or the Chechnyans’.
The problem is that the “Rules of law” are written not in Moscow but in Washington. Therefore, blind obedience to rules of law is wilful obedience to the hegemon. If Putin means business it is time he started laying down some rules and laws that answer to the needs of our suffering world. Russia’s economic ideas, swallowed wholesale from the western purveyors of neoliberal dogmas, might be a good place to start.
What ‘Rules of Law’ do suggest President Putin use besides Russian Law? Or is Russian Law written by ‘da hegemon’?
Where in Russia do you live to have such a good knowledge of Russian Law and Russian economics? I live on the far southwest part of Krimu.
Aus, the trouble with final warnings is that there is only one way to establish that an Nth warning is in fact final…
I said it clearly, Empire has lost and is seen to have lost a major campaign – the campaign in Syria. Within the logic of empire such an event simply cannot be permitted, as if it were, then empire would have ended.
Therefore a super-campaign, which is a global war, must necessarily follow. Is simple.
We wait. Fill the tanks and stack the wood, and wait. Xerxes had the good sense to retreat, thus saving Persian empire for hundreds of years…good sense and the present gang of illiterate thugs does not compute…
The collapse of the empire in question signals the end of the anglosaxon diaspora and method – an operation underway since about 1500, give or take…
Meantime they’re doing nuke exercise in Sacramento…and strategy of tension is global…
Millions of angry people in the streets demanding a different course have a way of convincing politicians to change course.
What is missing today is any sign of an active anti-war movement that can organize such. And in many places, protest is being made illegal. Certainly in America where protestors against Trump were threatened with 75 years in prison, and in France where the state police are currently crushing opposition to Macron’s regressive policies.
Sadly, what used to be an anti-war and anti-nuke left has been infiltrated, subverted and made powerless. And there is very little on the right organizing in such a manner, even though that is where there are at least some political voices like Ron Paul and Paul Roberts trying to raise warnings.
Enough people in the streets with strong protests could save humanity right now, but it doesn’t appear as if that is going to happen.
emotionally sound. However,
1. there are no work camps anywhere in Siberia.
2. there is no need for work camps in Siberia or anywhere else.
3. if the war will, indeed, start, there will be no need for anything afterwards.
4. and it will be an explosive (meaning very short) civilisational disaster.
1. This can be easily rectified in a fortnight if not less. Or, perhaps, just perhaps, there’s still some up there?
The public in both the UK and USA were opposed to the second Iraq war, demonstrated in the streets and made their wishes known – to no avail. While many, perhaps a majority of citizens remain disaffected, the constant barrage of anti-Russian propaganda seems to have affected many otherwise sensible people. The political leaders, at least a majority, will all vote for war I believe. A sorry state of affairs, perhaps tragic, but the future is not written yet. Perhaps humanity will find a way to thread this needle.
Just more hornswaggling by “Saker”. With Putin certainly achieving the historical notoriety of namesake Rasputin but doing cipher to free his country from influence of the international banking cartels while building his $100+ billion Black Sea dacha, circumstantial evidence says he don’t really give a rip about the Russkie proletariat. It’s all just the same as it ever was just in a slicked up multimedia extragavanza being used to orchestrate dualistic tension of the sheeple complete with the ever-present fossilized homosexual Kissinger on both rosters. You won’t ever receive a true perspective of the international bankster cartels who control both Russia’s and “Jews of the East” China’s US debt-backed purse strings and destinies, because the curtain hiding Oz is sewn tight this time. War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength. Live with it.
Bolton? May the good Lord protect us.
While the pressure on Russia grows, the next target by the Trump administration is Iran.
A foght with Russia is not in the cards for the forseeable future. The nomination of Pompeo and Bolton, as well as Trumps reticence on upholding the nuclear deal with Iran, is extremely worrying.
The focus of this website on all things concerning Russia is understandable, but the, imho, clear intention by Trump to attack Iran should not be neglected.
Anyone of us, Russians included, should have the primary objective to deter the US from attacking Iran. The eceonomic repercussions of such a war will reverberate throughout the globalized economy.
“The economic repercussions of such a war (war on Iran) will reverberate throughout the globalized economy”.
I applaud your kind concern for the “globalized economy”. Perhaps you somehow overlooked the men, women and children of Iran; the deadly effects on the environment; and the final overthrow of any semblance of international law and order.
A lot of things will reverberate throughout the world if Iran is bombed and attacked. In order of priority, the “globalized economy” takes a back seat IMHO.
Your perspective is fair enough. Yes, in a war with Iran, a lot of Iranians will die.
However, and you may call me coldhearted and beyond cynical, the economic shockwaves of an US Iran war will kill a lot more, just in very different ways. I also freely admit, that I am more worried about the impact of people´s lives near me, than about those half a globe away.
It regularly astounds me to no end that many people around the world have virtually no clue of how a major shock to the globalized just-in-time world trade would affect virtually all of the advanced economies. The complexities and co-dependencies are breathtaking.
All of your points mentioned above may or may not have an immediate impact on your personal life, depending on where you live. A major shock to the globalized economy, and the closing of the straits of Hormus constitute a prime example thereof, will have serious consequences regardless of where you live.
” the Empire needs to either fold or double down and folding….”
Saker, there is yet a third option you neglected to mention. When a new Emperor comes to power, he can order
an Inquisition to determine why his Empire is less than it should be. Whether previous Emperors and their
administrations have made bad decisions and taken the Empire on disastrous routes and ill-advised adventures
which are the cause of the Empire’s problems.
If a new Emperor takes the third option and puts a competent, dedicated investigator in charge of the Inquisition,
who dissembles what his task really is to prevent those responsible for the Empire’s downturn — either because
they personally profited from it or were just too partisan to make impartial decisions — from making a spurious response or a bogus self-defense.
If the Emperor appears not to know what he’s doing and hires and then fires his staff from disparate political factions
to ease the the minds of those who are the subjects of the inquiry….
Hey, wait a minute……
RT and Sputnik just note that Macron and Merkel have accepted, as likely, ‘evidence’ provided by the UK… WWIII is looming.
Trump is in a weak position. Has been under relentless attack since before the election. He surrounded himself with generals to appear tough. He has now surrounded himself with hawks and neocohens. His trade war salvo against China saw the Markets ( controlled by deep state and more precisely CIA) turn red and give up earlier gains. He ignores his chief lawyer’s advice and decides to testify to partisan Robert Mueller. This is a desperate act and very stupid. He called Putin as he has alienated Xi, Kim, NATO, EU, etc. Trump has few powerful friends. He names Bolton, Pompeo and Ms Torture to appear tough, Peace through Strengh he tweets. But reality is that the trade war against China is to pre empty the March 26 scheduled launch of the Petro-Yuan in Xhanghai. This spells trouble for MIC and the Dollar. Russia’s new weapons are capable of A2/AD. The proliferation of A2/AD spells doom for empire and so does the Petro-Yuan launch. Both Russia and China have alternatives to SWIFT ready to be activated. China can liquidate Treasuries and cause Trump to be impeached in a hurry. His trade war threat and sanctions against EU members who support North Stream 2 and congress threats against anyone buying A2/AD S400 is an act of desperation.
Trump just took it between the cheeks on the Omnibus Bill.
He had a MIC gun to his head that he loaded himself.
He could have guided this bill for a month. He “trusted” the Congress and they shafted him.
He’s screwed his base. He’s in deep political trouble with voters who wanted him to veto.
“Something there is that does not love a wall,…”
This is the problem with outsider Presidential candidates. They don’t have any support in Washington.
Trump’s true support in Congress was always limited to the Tea Party faction. A faction that was a minority in both the Senate and the House.
And of course, after a series of neocon presidents from 1980 to the present, there were very few bureaucrats who agreed with Trump as well. The bulk of possible Republicans who might be picked to serve in a Trump administration were Bush/Cheney neocons. And of course Obama and Hillary had just spent 8 years packing agencies with more pro-war neocons (or maybe call them neoliberals).
Reagan had begun the way towards having a few corporations completely in charge of what Americans hear in the media. This gave a huge amount of power to these people, and now we see any who attempt to oppose them or differ with them attacked and smeared in the media.
Bernie Sanders would have had exactly the same problems had Hillary not rigged the Democratic nomination against him and had he defeated Trump as the polls showed that he would have. The lesson learned is that it takes more than electing an outsider president to change the course of the country.
Macron, Merkel and May are in the weakest domestic position at their respective home front. So is Netanyahoo. The only thing left is to follow the wartime leader “candidate” Trump. To circle the wagons and rally the troops. So, meantime Trump unveils his wartime cabinet. But no one wants war in Europe. Westen Europe does not want Ukraine in the EU or NATO. The New Russian weapons scared the crap out of both Scaparrotti and Stoltenberg. In spite of May’s warmongering the troika of US Generals in Command (Votel, Dunford, Mattis) vetoed war against Russia. New weapons make the missile shields on shore and off shore, useless. Wall Street just vetoed war against China. Only thing left is Iran. Putin implied that war against Iran will be met with punishment as Iran is an ally. Iran allowed overflights of kalibr missiles raining down on the takfiris in Syria. Russia announced that Iran, who just dumped the US$ will be part of the Eurasian Economic Union in April.
Well stated, amigo!
It’s off to Persia to conquer the globe…
Of course the brown people know you’re on the way…and Persian hospitality is the stuff of legend.
Actually it’s probably also a test to see in VVP warning was indeed a final warning..I got my bets down with a trifecta of three countem three carriers and a sub.
Trump is not exactly in a strong position.
Much of his agenda has been defeated by Congress. The only item that passed was the Republican wet dream of massive tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations.
Unfortunately, Democrats have taken the position over the last year or so of being the party that says “We Want Nuclear War and We Want It Now!” War is the one thing the Democrats are certain to rally behind Trump about. Remember how all the Democrats said Trump looked “presidential” when he launched the failed missile strike on the Syrian airfield?
In my lifetime, the Democrats post-Vietnam had the reputation of being an anti-war party. Certainly the Republicans and the media constantly attacked them over that perception. However, its worth remembering that the Democrats have only been against two wars in their history that dates back to Jefferson and the founding of the country.
The Democrats opposed the Vietnam War. But only after a popular revolt by the American people and within the party forced the Democrats to that position in opposition to the other Democrats that started and promoted that war.
The Democrats were the pro-slavery party in the 19th century and in that role opposed the Civil War. If you watch the recent movie “Lincoln”, notice that its the Democrats arguing against the constitutional amendment that said that african-americans had the same rights as everyone else.
When I grew up, the Republicans used to remind people that the Democrats had started every American war in the 20th Century. This was during Vietnam, so in terms of WW1, WW2, Korea and Vietnam, it was a very true statement.
Yes, sadly, even though the Democrats oppose Trump on virtually everything else, the Democrats will likely gladly welcome a global nuclear war.
#“White identity” of Hitler #
-White identity is classified as “Nazism” everywhere in the western world, black identity is however black pride. Asian identity is Asian pride.. Jewish identity is Jewish pride.
As usual, nazis co opted completely innocent symbols for their twisted ideology. And demagogues + their blind followers repeat at nauseum.
“I think the message is pretty clear, Trump is throwing in the towel as to whatever extent he was considering diplomacy and is preparing for war,” Stephen Miles, director of the Center for International Policy think tank’s Win Without War coalition, told Newsweek.
#2. Wrong. War in Syria is very,very far from over. The JudeoAnglo Mafia is strengthening its bases in Syria. Terrorist from E. Ghouta are relocating to another location to continue their terror. They are well protected by the Wester&Eastern partners. De-ja vu otra vez. Only fools or propagandists are intoxicated by their own spins.
Hopefully with Bolton things will speed up. The Apprentice is puting the pieces into place. If their intentions for ww3 are real, not a theatre, then we will see Florida & other states will get their asses hurt. That could spell the end of “America” in America. The truth will end the lies, Anglo arrogance and hubris. Let it be.
Five la Libertad.
Bolton and Trump, two psychopaths, should hit it off just fine. Bolton will know just how to handle Trump, and get his crazy ideas enacted. There will be war. Trumps groveling endorsement of the US military in his rant today about the trillion plus budget guarantees it. Like all cowardly bullies he has to do something that doesn’t endanger him at all, but uses others acting aggresively to prove his “manhood.” This man’s inferiority complex is a danger to our world.
Finally, the beginning of language the West bosses understand: this wording from Bad vlad, from Gerasimov and Mrs Simonian.
Let them digest it for a while.
Very good analysis ,Saker.
But,IMHO, – a few essential points:
-Netanyahu’s visit at the Kosher House ,on 3/5,to coordinate the attack on Russia and Syria/Iran/Lebanon and the false flags to support these
-recent visit of the Saudi Barbaria’s butcher ,with selling of an additional 1 Bil $ worth of weapons; also to coordinate the attack
-the launching ,on 3/26 ,by the Chinese ,with Russia’s support ,of the petro-yuan ,backed by GOLD ,which will be the final nail in the petro-dollar ‘s coffin
-the liberating of E Ghouta ,which was supposed to be linked with Al Tanf,where US has a base and is training terrorists ,and this way ,menacing Damascus;plans spoiled by Russia/SAA
The last two were probably the triggering points of this hysterical attack on Russia
A brilliant summary of a historic month, and there’s one more week to go.
With respect, Russia and Syria have not won the war in Syria. Russia has fought the Zionists to a stalemate; one which the Zionist Neocons in control of the US will not accept. They will double down and escalate the war.
If I may quote myself from comments I made on Russia Insider; the lunatic Zionist Neocons have been in control of the US since the 90s – a murderous through line of Clinton, Bush, Obama,and Trump – all figureheads in the complete thrall of the US military-industrial-national security state whose sole goal is the implementation of the Ynon plan and its renamed Policy for a New American Century which call for the destruction of all middle eastern and south central Asian states and creation of a “Greater Israel” stretching from the Sinai to the Euphrates.
The other goal is the destruction of the US middle class for the enrichment of the 1% banking oligarchy. At best, the American population is clueless, comatose, and completely uninterested in what happens in the world.
The Zionist Neocons will never stop trying to break up Russia and destroy China – never. It may be stupid and impossible, but they will never stop trying. There will be no peace or security in the world until the Zionist Necons are stopped. Period.
Finally I said, and maintain, that living with the Zionist Neocons is like living in an apartment with a rabid dog. No amount of barricading, reasoning, strategizing, hoping, wishing it wasn’t so, or praying will help. The only thing that can be done is to kill the dog. That is the only reality. The world is the apartment. You must kill the dog.
Rabid dogs die 100% of the time even though nobody killed them – rabies is fatal to dogs, as everyone knows.
The logical action with respect to a rabid dog in your apartment is to close the doors and wait, the dog will die, and nobody will be hurt. No loud noises, no stray bullets. No killing is called for, none at all. Of course one does wonder how the dog got in to begin with – perhaps you left the doors open and meat on the table. If so, can you find the courage to speak truth and say it’s your own fault that you have permitted the situation to develop?
Zionism has failed. The dog is dying. Everybody knows this. Let this happen – or screw it up with even more violence – and perhaps so stimulated the rabid dog will bite. Since the dog has terrible “teeth” that would be, ahemm…
The proffered “remedy” only extends the errors. I will restrain myself from calling the proposal what it is, but the term begins with “s”….
Last time, in World War One, it took two months from the initial murder to the actual war.
And this Bushit will probably continue as long as US’ presidential assassin, (CIA) Company G0Bfather Poppy Bush lives !
Up until you gave the name, I thought you were referring to Henry Kissinger.
I never liked Bush and always voted against him. I was fundamentally opposed to the head of the CIA becoming President. I always vote against Generals who want to be President, and the CIA head becoming President was as bad or worse.
But, I’d have to say, that with Bush and Baker in charge, looking back it seems like the last time any adults were in charge of American policy. I didn’t like their policies, but at least they were the last who didn’t seem to be clueless idiots which usually means they’ve been corrupted and bought by someone.
One thing, they were the ones who promised the Russians not to expand NATO eastwards. And kinda-sorta kept that promise. It was Bill Clinton in 1997 who expanded NATO to include Poland, Hungary and the Czechs and the Slovaks. Hmmm, now knowing the Clintons they way we do now, I wonder how much they made off of that step towards increasing tensions and nuclear war? Any new NATO company is worth a lot of money to the ‘defense’ industries as the new country now has to ditch all of their old Soviet equipment and buy new equipment which is deemed compatible with NATO.
Saker et al
Not only a crisp and masterful analysis of the Ides of March so far, but the ensuing commentary has been more than worth the ticket price. The blatant and half-hearted false flag operation in Salisbury has run its course and the machinations of May and her gang of foaming apparatchiks has been such to make Jeremy Corbynlook like a vision of sanity. I say that because in the event of a fall of the May government, Corbyn is the likely contender to form a new one, and IT will not be looking for confrontation with Russia or anyone else. Britain today is too weak, riven with dissention and divided to contemplate a confrontation with anyone, especially not a nuclear-armed one. Our armed forces have a huge recruitment crisis, even in a recession brought about by austerity which is when the poor usually join up, they are under-equipped or badly equipped or have spent hugely on the wrong things – aircraft carriers with no aircraft – and are exhausted from over extension. The tripwire force in Estonia is laughable – 400 men – it would be obliterated in an afternoon. If it were to make any move against Kaliningrad it would be liquidated as the first APC’s crossed the border. This imperial fantasy can be ended in less than a week. May is only in power by the largesse of the Ulster Democratic Unionist Party and the minute they withdraw their support and force a confidence vote she and her gang of lunatics are finished. The bribe was only a billion to buy their support, but trying to invoke article 5 because three people got hospitalised, and then not get too the bottom of the matter in a logical and coherent way is so transparently contrived that their derangement is now clear to all. Maria Zakharova was quoted as calling them ‘trash, these people we have to deal with’ on Russian TV, and she is right. Never have the inadequacies of the political class in the UK been so ruthlessly exposed as they have been in the last two weeks. We all remember what happened with the run up to Iraq and the disaster that was Libya – Russia is neither. Issuing ultimatums to another nuclear power is not just bad manners, it is a sign of the intellectual defects possessed by these people. I remind you, nobody has died yet, perhaps the Skripals will be persuaded to, or not……it all smacks of the War of Jenkin’s Ear…..the problem is we have moved on from muzzle loaders and you had better hope that Putin and Lavrov do not run out of patience in dealing with the pygmy tribe of inbreds that form the current Tory government. Took people’s minds off the pantomime called Brexit for a while though didn’t it…..
With regard to Trump, he is almost certain now to lose seats in both houses of Congress in the elections that are now some 7-8 months away.
The Democrats are united with the anti-Trump propaganda they’ve been fed and well motivated to work on campaigns, donate and vote. Democratic candidates will run strong races on this tide.
The party that just won the White House almost always loses seats in the following mid-term election. There is always a natural disappointment in America between a ruling leader and what they pretended to be in the campaign. The out-of-power party almost always gains seats in the following mid-terms. Its just natural.
Trump was always from a minority faction within the Republican party, the Tea-Party faction, and his number one goal in the White House should have been to expand this faction in Congress.
Instead, Trump has been proven to be incompetent as the leader of a large government. Trump of course had no experience with such a task, and it turns out that the way Trump ran his own small (but wealthy) family business was very bad for running a government. Trump needed to put people who were loyal to him into a government full of Hillary, Obama and Bush people and then fight to get control of that government. Or at least to do this at a few key agencies. Trump’s appointments have been failures at this. And Trump has earned no loyalty with or from his people largely because Trump shows no loyalty to them and treats them like they are expendable. Does anyone want to follow such a leader, especially in a fight such as this where trying to fight and losing the fight means an end to any career in Washington? Do you take such a risk for a leader who will throw you overboard on a whim? Not likely.
And worse, Trump needed to be aiming for these mid-term elections from day one. Trump was always going to be backed by a minority in Congress. Any Trump dreams of being able to enact his agenda in his first two years were a delusion. At the very best he’d get what the existing corporate, pro-war Republicans, who overall only held slim majorities in both houses, had always wanted. Thus, he could pass the Republican’s perennial favorite of large tax cuts for billionaires and corporations. But he was never going to pass anything that was not already on the conventional Republican wish-list which Trump had just run against in the primaries.
Trump’s only hope was to win these mid-term elections. If Trump had built a cohesive political movement after the election he might have reversed historical trends and accomplished this. It was ok if Trump lost on particular issues. Then he has a flood of people running against both corporate Democrats and corporate Republicans who take these losses as issues and urge voters to support their President against the Swamp in order to get what the voters had wanted when they voted for Trump. Paint the existing Congress as the part of the Swamp that is blocking their President.
Instead, Trump has alienated one part of his base after another. The parts of his voting base that had responded to Trump saying that Iraq was a mistake and that regime change wars were a mistake have been appalled by the appointment of Bolton. They were already upset that policy had gone pure Deep-State lately, and Bolton is the nail in the coffin for that constituency. Especially since Bolton will certainly want a war before election day. Bolton always wants a war and wants it now.
Plus, the people who Trump appealed to on immigration are now upset that Trump just signed a budget deal with no immigration reform and no money for a wall.
The angry working class voters will be figuring out that Trump’s screwing them on health care costs and that the tax cut doesn’t help them much and that making the rich richer never trickles down.
Trump voters are leaving in droves right now feeling betrayed by yet another lying con-man President. At the very best, they’ll have very low turnouts in the coming elections. And the primaries come relatively soon in some places, and its hard to imagine a pro-Trump challenger against a pro-Swamp incumbent having any luck at all in the environment that Trump has created for himself.
Thus, one can now fully expect Trump to get clobbered badly in these upcoming elections. If someone is running as a Trump supporter, they’ve now got nothing to run on and can only pose for slick pictures in their MAGA hat. If Trump loses anything at all in the Senate, then the Dems and Chuck Schumer are in the leadership. And Trump only has 17 or so seat majority in the House. He might just maybe hold on to an even slimmer majority there, but that’s in doubt now.
Trump will soon be more powerless than ever. The political classes will sense this before election day. The bad news is that its the pro-Deep-State, pro-nuclear-war-with-Russia Democrats that will be gaining power. What used to be the pro-slavery party is going to get another shot at power.
” 7-8 months away” is a very, very long time in politics, especially in the current era.
I think your forecast is wrong, but then , I’m just an impartial observer , at the bottom the world.
What would I know?
Great analysis. The Trump agenda, which inspired his base originally, in which Trump was the hero of the white working classes, has clearly been abandoned. However, Trump can still hang on by limiting his policy initiatives to those supported by the broad Republican base. The tax cuts, which could just as easily have been proposed by GW Bush, are an excellent example which you cite. Trump’s more fringe proposals such as reinstating Glass-Steagall or 40% tariffs on Chinese imports are non-starters and not supported by any factions of the Republican party.
There may be a secret weapon in Trump’s arsenal which may mitigate large scale losses, though. That is, the Democrats and their relentless attacks on his presidency. These may cause Trump supporters to close ranks around the President and emerge angry and combative rather than depressed and disengaged, which might have been the result if they had actually reflected on his policy initiatives to date.
Also, if the Democrats run uninspiring corporate Hillary clones with no more than a lesser-evil agenda they may have a difficult time taking advantage of Trump’s weaknesses.
Again, must read insights found no where else. Happened on to an interestng response to the Salisbury incident by Peter Hitchens of the Daily Mail.
We’re goading Russia into a ‘dirty war’ we CANNOT win
In essence he believes that some part of the power structure within Russia deliberately used a nerve agent as a message to the UK government.
Basically Hitchens seems to believe that the poisoning is a reaction to the UK making an enemy out of Russia and attempting to do nasty things against the Russians when there is absolutely no reason for it. He points out that:
In the end, I have to ask myself does anybody West of the Russian border remember what happened in World War II, because the Russians certainly do.
Peter Hitchens is a very low-rent version of his late, unlamented, brother, Christopher.
” Jay al- Islam may withdraw from Eastern Ghouta to Eastern Qalamun – Report”. Syrian War is a tragedy- comedy. Next chapter is about begin after brief intermittion. The end is far into the future.
Congratulate on defeating Daesh. Good job tovarishchi. Now Mr. Putin have new actor ,Bolton to deal with.
Don’t know if this has been posted anywhere on this blog but Joseph Farrell of
fame has some very interesting things to say and post. Example one this:
By now you’ve all probably heard that Great Britain’s Prime Minister Teresa May has expelled some Russian diplomats who are alleged to be spies, in retaliation for the alleged Russian poisoning of double agent Skripal. But there’s some flies in this narrative ointment, and they were pointed out by a former British diplomat, and, incidentally, by my friend and colleague Walter Bosley, who posted the following comment on his Facebook wall:
The ease with which anyone could have poisoned Skripal and his daughter and left people to jump to conclusions that it was those dastardly Russians should give more people pause. It is quite possible that the Russians had nothing to do with it. Does anyone really think that neither we nor the Brits or any other player has Novichok?
Skripal had been a double agent for the Brits. From my perspective, as a former branch chief of DA ops for the AFOSI, the Russians wanted one or more imprisoned agents back. Arresting Skripal upon his return to Moscow years later, positioned the Russians to having someone the Brits wanted back — and thus the currency was established. In the 2010 spy swap involving Russia, the US and UK, Russia got their preferred illegals (deep cover or NOC agents) back because they could give Skripal back to the Brits.
So why poison Skripal? Because it would look to knee-jerk reactionaries like the Russians ‘got revenge’. But the Russians had already tried and convicted and imprisoned Skripal — they could have executed him then (or poisoned him in prison). Instead, they gave him back in a swap. Another player poisoning Skripal would serve the saber-rattling objectives of a military-industrial-intel complex in the West and serve radical left/right political objectives in the US and UK, setting up the Russians a la the USS Maine.
Until I see something that convinces me that there is an ‘otherwise’, this is my opinion on this issue. (Emphasis added)
and next this:
There’s something else going on behind the scenes, however, and it’s this:
West launches massive campaign to kick ‘inconvenient’ Russia out of UN Security Council – Senator
Now this one interested me because for many years in various books and blogs and interviews, I’ve been arguing that we would eventually see a movement to change the composition of the UN security council in such a fashion to make it look and reflect the current economic power status quo of globalism. TO be sure, I’ve argued that there are other agendas behind such a move. But the current situation now has arisen which may allow the change to occur, according to this RT article:
The West has launched a large-scale campaign to remove Russia from the UN Security Council (UNSC), Senator Sergey Kalashnikov said, commenting on the UK’s accusations against Moscow over the poisoning of Sergei Skripal.
“The West has launched a massive operation in order to kick Russia out of the UN Security Council,” Kalashnikov said, as cited by RIA Novosti. “Russia is now a very inconvenient player for the Western nations and this explains all the recent attacks on our country.”
The Senator believes that in order to curb Russia’s membership there is going to be an attempt to reform the principal UN body tasked with the maintenance of international peace and security. The Russian Federal Council member reminded that the USSR, to which Russia is the legal successor, has been an integral part of the UNSC since its establishment in 1946.
On Wednesday, Labor MP Chris Leslie addressed May on the issue of reforming the UN Security Council in order to limit Russia’s rights within the body during a parliament session.
Leslie argued that Russia was “increasingly looking like a rogue state,” adding that “we must now begin to talk about reform” of the UNSC. “Russia can’t be allowed to simply sit pretty, thumbing its nose to the rest of the world community and feeling that it’s immune from the rule of law internationally,” Leslie said.
May responded by saying that Leslie was not the only one to stress the need for changes within the UNSC, promising that “this is something that we will look at.”
Take the time to review the process at The League of Nations whereby USSR was expelled, Litvinov retired and Molotov taking over.
The expulsion then was illegal according to League’s own law.
It was a necessary prerequisite to setting the nazi army against the USSR.
Similar circumstances today prevail.
However the global situation, circumstance, does not align well. A repeat of Barbarossa is not possible.
Imagine the way Germany would have evolved without Barbarossa and you may glimpse the future of the conditions inside the US. “Unstable” is a nice word.
Peter Dale Scott and David Talbot say that the US State is being devoured (along with the several satrapies, for now) by the Empire.
There is a name for that. ketosis.
Ketosis is characterized by the odor of proteins converting to sugars, which releases acetone – the source of the odor.
Everybody can smell it. They’re right.
Empire is determined by circumstance to try to subdue the weakest of their opponents. Persia.
Evidently defeat in Syria did not satisfy the Empire, and they’re going to have to prove it to themselves in Iran. If they are seen to be defeated in Persia, collapse is very probable. Of course that would imply some reorganization inside the US.
The name for that? It begins with “r”…
Let us hope Law prevails, and good sense.
When observing the machinations of Donald John Trump, keep in mind that there is an element of Providential Benevolence at work here. The ‘controllers’ had in place a plan to put the slut Hillary Clinton into the Oval Office. Their worst nightmare is that Trump won, in spite of their ill-conceived plans. The ‘controllers’ are the parasite jew banking cabal that own and/or manipulate and/or corrupt everything they touch, and always have. The U.S. congress is bought and paid for by the parasite cabal, and so is all western news media, corporate medicine/drug industry, energy industry, entertainment, etc. When observing Trump at work, remember that he is first and foremost a CEO, and he hires individuals for specific assignments that are critical to his agenda, and when those individuals prove no longer necessary, or co-operative, as a CEO Trump will replace them in a heartbeat. Trump is not ignorant of Bolton’s short-comings. Trust Trump. He has not deceived one time as of yet.
“As to who will prevail, your guess is as good a mine. But the fact that today Trump replaced McMaster with a warmongering psychopath like John Bolton is a clear sign that the Neocons are in charge in the USA and that the Axis of Kindness is about to get a heck of a lot “kinder”.”
Confirmation, ganging up against Russia:
1. “US expels 60 Russian diplomats, shutters Seattle consulate”
2. “Expulsion of Diplomats From 14 EU States, US, Canada”
Songtexts to the wardrums?……………………LOL.
The constant replacements in US Government is postering and positioning. If you cant do much about it, you can at least look dangerous and show everybody you have big ugly dogs.
The Globalists have already made out their new strategy, reinforcement of their positions making “partly globalisation” within their available power base.
I concur … completely.
