Further to my last “Motive, Means and Opportunity” summary regarding who blew up the Nordstream pipelines (the USA), let us stand back and look at the bigger global picture today. Let us ask “Cui bono?” with regard to the entire Ukrainian debacle.
First of all, we need to be absolutely clear that this insane FUBAR Ukraine situation was 100% concocted, fabricated and engineered by the USA, certainly since the droolin’ Nuland / lamebrained McCain / CIA Maidan coup of 2014, but even dating back before that. There are few situations in life where one party can be found to be 100% guilty and evil and morally bankrupt, and where the other party is 100% acting in self defence and self preservation. However history will show that with respect to this Ukraine situation, the USA was 100% the evil aggressor and Russia was 100% acting in self preservation and in defense of civilian Russian speakers in Ukraine. This is truly a war of good against evil and in case you still haven’t got the message yet, let me repeat: the USA Deep State is EVIL. This reality is indisputably obvious to any semi-comatose person remotely interested in historical, documented FACTS. For those with any remaining doubts, they need to listen to this comprehensively researched three part podcast summary by a journalist and a military historian (both Anglophones). They actually obtained their information from Western mainstream media sources before those reports and articles mysteriously vanished from the Google search algorithms (or were relegated to 500th priority on the search list) after 24 Feb 2022:
It is unfortunate that the stupid sheeple of the West, probably 99% of the “golden billion”, believe the exact opposite of the Truth, which is testimony to the incredible effectiveness of the relentless lying propaganda pooped out from the AngloEuroZionist mainstream media sewer outlets ever since 24 Feb 2022.
Until the two recent terrorist bombings (Nordstream pipelines and Kerch bridge), Russia had been reacting in a highly restrained manner to the US and US proxy aggravations. The US started provocations many years ago and contemptuously rebuffed multiple opportunities for peaceful settlements. Russia will soon end it. How? With the humiliating defeat of Ukraine for sure, but more widely we will see the economic devastation of Europe (apart from those who buy energy in Rubles – eg Hungary and Turkey) and eventually the destabilization of the USA: perhaps with civil war and revolution in the USA, resulting from its own inevitable economic collapse. The latter two eventualities were never Russia’s intended goal, but will be unintended consequences of the malicious actions of the US and EU themselves, blowback or karma if you like.
So what motivated the USA to provoke Russia to invade Ukraine? What parties hoped to benefit from it (hint: definitely not the US public) and what were the short, medium and long term goals of the US Deep State? Context is everything and we need to view the big picture, which can be found in Andrei Martyanov’s excellent book which was nicely summarized in this review:
In short: US industrial, economic and social decay, all entirely self inflicted over the past several decades, have led to the decline of the USA as a functional society and hence to the impending loss of its unipolar global hegemony. This is a situation that the megalomaniacal “indispensable nation, shining beacon on a hill” ideologues simply cannot accept.
It is vital to understand exactly how this hollowed out mockery of a former empire continues to limp along in a moribund fashion right now, just prior to its complete self-inflicted collapse:
- Most important is to understand how the US fraudulent “economy” works. The best commentator regarding this is the brilliant Real World Economist* Professor Michael Hudson whose works are too numerous for me to mention https://michael-hudson.com/ In brief, the US economy largely operates as a global blood sucking parasite, by extracting wealth from the rest of the world and by keeping weaker countries under the its jackboot (AKA economic Neocolonialism). The major mechanism for this is the exuberant privilege of the US dollar as the International Reserve Currency, a privilege no other country has.
- This scam operates in tandem with other mechanisms that were contrived and designed and tweaked and refined to suit the US “rules based order” ever since Bretton-Woods in 1944 (which established the precursors to the World Bank, WTO and IMF, with the simultaneous designation of the USD as IRC), the abandonment of the gold standard in 1971 by Nixon and especially the US creation of the Petrodollar. This was a Godfather type “offer you can’t refuse” that the USA presented to the Middle Eastern Oil producers. It was a protection racket that the Gulf States sequentially signed up to and was completed by 1974. Oil, an essential commodity, could only be bought from the Gulf States in USD, all other currencies were refused. Where could a country get USD from? Why from the USA of course, in exchange for real world products. The Petrodollar enabled the USA to obtain limitless high quality imported products for free by simply electronically “printing” US dollars, quite apart from getting free oil. It was the first class ticket on a gravy train of unimaginable wealth far exceeding the wildest fantasies of the most avaricious, rapacious, greedy robber barons. If the US could get imported goods for free, why bother to fund US domestic industries? Why not offshore their industrial production? So that is exactly what the US did.
- Petrodollar recycling involved the investment of excess oil profits from the Middle Eastern States in US debt securities / treasury bonds, which further propped up the fiat US dollar, even though the USD had no intrinsic value in itself. The value of the dollar was based entirely on the confidence of those who invested in those US “assets”. It was a confidence trick based on a protection racket. This is what enabled the US to rack up trillions of dollars in debt, backed up by the savings from foreign countries, to fund 800+ US military bases around the world. This is a debt that will never be repaid when this whole Ponzi scheme collapses.
- All this is coming to an end. The Neocons believe that the only way such US global parasitism can continue to operate is to subjugate the “World Island” ie. Eurasia. To “regime change” Putin and Xi and to ultimately Balkanise the whole of Eurasia, each banana republic to be “led” by a US puppet dictator. This wet dream “strategy” is derived entirely from the well worn CIA playbook. Such actions had been repeatedly inflicted by the US on practically every state of Latin America (the “Monroe doctrine”) and on Global South countries over many decades. The US Neocons believe that the subjugation of Eurasia is the only way to resurrect the dead corpse of Bretton-Woods and the Petrodollar and to force the rest of the world to continue funneling their Real World valuable commodities and products to the USA for free.
Much has been written about the Mackinder declaration that “who controls the World Island controls the world“, a sentiment echoed by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book ‘The Grand Chessboard’ and certainly adhered to by the US Neocons who run the Deep State. This is why the sock puppet Biden, or more specifically his handlers, have been provoking dangerous confrontations in Ukraine and in the East China Sea ever since Biden’s “election”. The US has gone back to its “gunboat diplomacy” historical roots, thuggish bastardry which worked in the past to bully other countries into compliance, but which cannot work today against nations that now possess hypersonic missiles. Such US behavior is a “hail Mary” pass, the last desperate act of a failing unipolar hegemon.
The above account describes the USA’s long term Grand View, better termed a Grand Delusion. Given the advanced state of decay of the US and the unstoppable rise of China and Russia militarily, industrially, economically and socially, there is zero prospect of the USA prevailing. There are only two possible outcomes: either the USA backs down or there will be global nuclear Armageddon. There is nothing in between.
Morally and ethically speaking alone, the only correct and proper and decent action is for “Exceptionalistan” to back down. They should count themselves lucky that the rest of the world has no appetite for revenge against the US after centuries of it perpetrating genocide, slavery, racism, foreign skulduggery and exploitation of the rest of the world. However the Global South is more preoccupied with their own well being, they will simply ignore the putrefying carcass of the USA, they are only interested in “win-win” interactions with partners who actually play fair, who abide by actual UN International Law and not by the US rigged “rules based order”.
What about short and medium term more limited perspectives? What specific parties hoped to gain from a war in Ukraine? The usual suspects: the Military-Industrial-Complex, the US fossil fuel industry and possibly the US banking/financial sector.
The MIC: How does the US MIC profit from perpetual war? By all rational accounts the US invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was a miserable failure. However the US persisted at it for 20 years, the longest war in US history. Why? Because was a massive financial windfall for the MIC, it was the gift that kept on giving. It funded numerous McMansions and luxury yachts for the MIC executives and MIC Washington lobbyists. Please refer to appendix two at the end of this document for the explanation of exactly how the Afghan debacle, and indeed all of the USA’s endless invasions and interventions, worked in financial favor of the MIC:
Today, sending “billions of dollars” worth of US ordnance to Ukraine (much of it outdated and obsolete) represents a massive financial windfall for the US MIC. It is the only way they could profitably dispose of stuff they could never legally sell. It does not matter if 30% of it goes missing (eg Javelin missiles to be sold by terrorists from car boots) nor if the rest gets blown up by the Russians. Of course, such obsolete ordnance will need to replaced with overpriced new versions to replenish the US inventory, which will be funded by ever larger sums of taxpayers’ money, to the detriment of US publicly funded roads, rail, schools, healthcare, libraries, etc, etc.
The US fossil fuel industry: In my previous “Whodunnit” article I mentioned that blowing up the Nordstream pipelines was the only way that super expensive US LNG could ever be exported to Europe. US fracked LNG is far more expensive** than piped Russian conventional gas and far more environmentally destructive, with far higher carbon emissions. In order to understand why different energy sources incur vastly different expenses in their production and distribution, it is essential to understand the concept of EROI (energy returned over invested) as well as the full life cycles of the different energy sources: from extraction to processing to transportation to end user. Such explanation is beyond the scope of this article. Suffice to say that high EROI energy sources are cheap to harvest and deliver, however low EROI energy sources are expensive to harvest and deliver and indeed may represent a financial net loss. Such has been true for fracked US shale oil, another Ponzi scam which was never profitable at ANY oil price (even >$100 per barrel). It was a misbegotten project that was bulldozed through using market hubris, blatant fraud, low interest bank loans and inappropriate government subsidies. Such economic stupidity and fraud is also true for the overseas export of fracked US shale gas, even before considering the expensive energy requirements to liquefy it (cooling down to around minus 163 deg C), with continued energy needed to refrigerate it during transportation in specialist highly insulated tankers (now in short supply around the world) and the multi billion dollar investments required for specialist handling at purpose designed export and import terminals (not yet built).
The USA has depleted all its economically viable sources of oil and gas, all its remaining sources have woefully low EROI and hence are super costly (energy wise and hence price wise) to extract, process and transport. Fracked shale oil is nothing like crude oil, it has the API index and volatility of paint thinner, which is why the trains used to transport it are called “bomb” trains. You cannot make diesel, the indispensable workhorse fuel, from fracked shale oil.
Russia, along with the Caspian area, has in aggregate gone past the peak of oil production, with declining EROI (with only a few fields pre-Peak eg Kashagan). However compared with the USA, the Eurasian oil and gas sources have a far higher EROI, which is IMPOSSIBLE for the US to economically compete with. The fact the the USA is now depleted of easy, cheap oil is the reason they are now stealing oil from Syria and also why they hijacked several Iranian oil tankers. Pipeline terrorism was the only way the US could sell uneconomic LNG to Europe, just as provoking a war was the only way the US could “sell” their obsolete old ordnance to Europe. Dirty tricks and devious skulduggery is how the US “free market” and “rule based order” operates, indeed how it has always operated.
The US financial sector: It was the drug crazed dream of the USA that sanctioning Russia would cause Russia to economically collapse which would then spur a coup d’etat against Putin. This goal backfired spectacularly after Russia demanded energy payments in Rubles, which caused the Ruble to appreciate beyond all expectations. Sanctioning Russia’s fossil fuel exports only caused the European and global price of oil and especially natural gas to skyrocket, leading to a huge financial windfall for Russia, which by now has largely compensated for the US theft of $300 billion of Russia’s foreign reserves. In times of global uncertainty, many nations move their financial assets into US treasury bonds / securities as a default “safe haven” which has kept the US dollar value afloat so far. However those nations now also realize that their savings could be arbitrarily stolen at any time by the US “rules based order”, hence they are figuring out ways to shift their reserves. At present the European currencies have fallen against the USD, primarily as a result of their own energy sanctions against Russia which has caused the recession of their own economies. The European industrial sectors are poised to collapse from energy starvation. Once the BRICS+ currency arrangements and financial systems, which bypass the USD, get up and running, there will be massive flight of away from US bonds and securities and the massive international repatriation of US dollars back to the US, which will result in hyperinflation and devaluation of the US dollar, resulting in their inability to afford any imports. Along with the deindustrialised condition of the USA, resulting in no significant domestic manufacturing, that all spells extreme poverty for “Exceptionalistan”.
In summary: any initial hopes by the US banking/financial sector that they might benefit from the Ukrainian war have at best resulted in the USD remaining neutral so far, but will inevitably lead to the accelerated collapse of the USD.
CONCLUSION: The USA is screwed. Get over it.
*as opposed to fraudulent economic neoliberal, neoclassical “trickle down” FIRE sector ideologues, those of the Leo Strauss, Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek ilk.
**original contracted price for Russian piped gas to Germany was $280 per 1000 cubic meters vs current market price of around $2000 (and the EU is now expected to buy US LNG at “only” 6 to 7 times the cost of domestic natural gas in the US)
– Much has been written about the Mackinder declaration that “who controls the World Island controls the world“, a sentiment echoed by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book ‘The Grand Chessboard’ and certainly adhered to by the US Neocons who run the Deep State.
‘The Grand Chessboard’ seems to be the real Mein Kampf.
I don’t any of the necons – Rumsfeld was one – who is not retired.
America, from its inception, clearly had the strong tendency to operate as a blood sucking parasite. Any hope of self correcting that behavior was terminated once the worlds pre-eminent blood ducking parasite, the Zionists, fully integrated themselves into American affairs. Now, by being used to prosecute the Zionist global agenda, America has become a major problem for the world.
I wonder…. Why would you place Zionism above or more powerful than the British Empire and though long gone never went away influence/interests. And why is a convenient perpetually violent crazed genocidal state taking over Palestine, formerly British Empire – that really just became American Empire, vassal state – any different from say deliberately placing Orange men in Belfast. Zion might be the PR, but it’s not the purpose. No people hoping for peace and homeland could possibly behave so despotically with it’s neighbors. It’s a recipe for a near constant existential crisis for generations, if it can survive the decline of the US. That situation seems to simply serve to destabilize the Middle East and militarize the settler colonists in the Occupied Territories of Palestine, not in their interest but those of Empire.
“Zionism” isn’t simply the establishment of a country, but the establishment of a people as rulers of the world. There is an ancient interpretation that “the Divine Promise” is immutable and not dependent upon what that people did, only that they would “inherit the earth”. This is why Zionism integrated itself into US finance, business, media, and politics: the resources (including labor) were useful in establishing that global hegemony.
– but the establishment of a people as rulers of the world.
DNA analysis confirms suspicions about Israelis being some fake. Caucasians are not Semites.
As an American who has fought against this corruption caused by evil globalists taking over this country, it is very depressing to have to agree with you. In any case, no country, not even my own, should be a “superpower”. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Hopefully more people here wake up to what’s been going on for the last 100 years and create a major change – go back to what once made America great.
“…go back to what once made America great…”
This is a common delusion among US citizens. The USA has never been great. The USA also is not America, to state that this is so, is another crime of the USA, the theft of the continental noun. Nicaraguans and Inuits are Americans also.
Please supply the data to show the USA was once “great”, whatever that means to you.
comparing to majority other countries it was free.
only Switzerland and England had comparable freedom.
small limited government, and little taxes.
When considering what the US was from its beginning it is proper to bring up what Britain did to them. And how until this day a great deal of what has been going on in the US and that has determined the foreign policies has had a connection to an angloamerican establishment largely designed by the british.
Many americans still think it would have been better if the south had seceded and dont realise how they were played by Britain
several other informative articles well worth your time at
It is also “very proper” remember that England wasn’t just focused on the Colonies. In fact, they were involved in an immense battle against their ancient enemy: France.
But even before that war, the seeds of destruction were clearly evident. The earliest of colonists, soon identified the Native Indians as savage and needed to be eliminated. Much of that white mentality was due to Protestant-Puritan thinking.
“Manifest Destiny” revealed to us how savage the white people were as they later went out, killing billions of buffaloes and laying waste to virgin soil ALL to lay claim to seizing the land as their own “property.”
This same bizarre behavior has now turned into a brutal monster we now call the US Financial/Military Hegemon.
“The USA is screwed. Get over it.”
Good. The downfall can’t happen fast enough. We must feel sorry for many ordinary Americans but the good ones will survive.
I’ve had acquaintances with people in the CRF/Davos/WEF circuit. They have a different way of thinking about the world. They are smart in the sense of being entitled enough to fearlessly get/take what they want. Ordinary people have fear about taking bold action, but by holding the trifecta of military, financial, and technical dominance, and exploiting it without shame their crew has gone far.
To make a chess analogy, they are very good at finishing with a dominant position but they don’t have any experience with an equal, let alone inferior, position.
They’re playing the only playbook they have.
This either ends with their internal collapse and balkanization of the west into Putin’s “Multi-Polar” world, or a Strangelove MAD option. God help us.
As a regular (but mediocre) chess player, I like your chess analogy. It’s very accurate.
>>>They’re playing the only playbook they have.
That’s an excellent point IMHO. Not to downplay malevolence and stupidity on the part of certain Western players, but much of the aggressive madness in the West’s policies simply is due to their ingrained habit of treating any opposing party as a natural inferior (e.g. Russia), or simply as barbarians.
This pattern has predominated in the West for centuries, the last time Western polities felt seriously threatened by a non-Western power was probably during the heyday of the Ottoman Empire.

How Keystone Pipeline ended:
– On the campaign trail, Biden vowed to cancel the Keystone XL cross-border permit should he win the presidency—and on his first day in office, he made good on that promise. The revoked permit became the final nail in the pipeline’s coffin.
Alaska is full of oil, but a pipeline to US is missing
Syrian oil is about founding CIA
Russia should be bombing those stolen oil convoys.
But current state of the union is RT will not even tell oil is sent to Kurdish Iraq, or that US if fooling Russia with their ISIS soldiers.
There is (seemingly) nothing in between.
Too many Monday morning QB’s are itching for any answer, but the question is why
And the view was grand, but the cost is outrageous.
The insulated and increasingly isolated, NeoCon cabal still in control within the Beltway have one remaining option. That is to push all the red buttons and bring a nuclear devastation down upon us all. We can only hope and pray that they have not descended so far down the circling drain of inhumanity.
Baring that, how can it be better said than was said by T S Eliot?
We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dried grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar.
(A quite beautiful poem unfolds and concludes with the following)
This is the way the (their) world ends
Not with a bang but with a whimper.
800 years before Necon the Kings were debt slaves to the international banksters called Knights Templar.
Columbus was employed by Knights Templar. It was Knights Templar who came to America in 1492.
As per Larry Romanov, “Columbus, whose real name was Cristobol Colon, was a Jewish slave trader financed by wealthy Jewish businessmen, whose discovery of the new world set in motion a program of genocide that covered all the Americas, exterminating countless millions of people including the entire Maya, Inca and Aztec civilisations, as well as the Carib Indians and 98% of American aboriginal peoples”.

Neocon Paul Wolfowitz after being sacked from World Bank:
– As a Visiting Scholar of the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, Wolfowitz has blogged for the group and appeared in group events. In 2011, he wrote columns that appeared in publications such as The Independent, The Sunday Times, and Newsweek.
In February 2013, Wolfowitz publicly supported legal recognition for same-sex marriage in an amicus brief submitted to the US Supreme Court.
In February 2015, Wolfowitz advised presidential candidate Jeb Bush.
His career went downwards, and so on for them all
This is one of the best “big picture” articles of the many on the Ukraine SMO that I have seen. It shows how the Ukraine is only the most prominent of the many theaters of conflict between the USA and Russia. I just want to emphasize that the ability of the US to bully the world is dependent entirely on the fear of the US’s military power, as has been emphasized by Andrei Martyanov. The world is watching to see whether they can stop deferring to the US and start to build their own paths to the future. As a US citizen, I can only hope that the oligarchs of my country pull in their horns and let us develop as an important but not dominant part of the world. I don’t have a lot of hope that this will happen, but I do hope that even these fools know that nobody could win a nuclear war.
I usually refrain from nitpicking, but the author’s use of the phrase “exuberant privilege” tickled my funnybone. The usual statement is that the dollar gives the US an “exorbitant privilege”, but the exuberant use of our exorbitant privilege is one of the main causes of our “owners” overreach and now certain downfall. I hope they don’t take us with them.
They were exuberant about their exorbitant privilege :)
I find after proof reading my articles many times, I still discover errors, including a couple of other minor ones (did you also spot them?) which are too trivial to bother changing

What are the United States and Germany playing?
by Thierry Meyssan
Before our eyes, Germany, which has just lost its supply of Russian gas and will only be able to obtain at best a sixth in Norway, is sinking into the war in Ukraine. It becomes the hub of the secret actions of NATO which acts, ultimately, against it. The current conflict is particularly opaque when one ignores the links between the US Straussians, the revisionist Zionists and the Ukrainian integral nationalists.
The war in Ukraine acts as a decoy. We only see it and have forgotten the major conflict in which it is located. As a result, we do not understand what is happening on the battlefield, nor do we correctly perceive the way the world is reorganizing and particularly the way the European continent is evolving.
It all started with the arrival of Joe Biden in the White House. He surrounded himself with former collaborators he had known during his vice-presidency: the Straussians . This small sect varies in political color, either Republican or Democrat, depending on the party of the incumbent president. Its members, almost all Jews, follow the oral teaching of the late Leo Strauss. They are convinced that men are wicked and democracies are weak. More: they were not able to save their people from the Holocaust and will not be able to do so next time. They think they can only survive by constituting a dictatorship themselves and maintaining control. In the 2000s, they formed the Project for a New American Century. They had called for a “New Pearl Harbor” that would shock the minds of Americans so much that they would succeed in imposing their views on them. These were the attacks of September 11, 2001.
This information is shocking and difficult to accept. There are, however, many works considered serious on this subject. Above all, the progression of the Straussians since 1976, when Paul Wolfowitz  was appointed to the Pentagon, until today largely confirms the worst concerns. In Europe, the Straussians are not known, but the journalists who support them are. They are called “neo-conservatives”. It must be recognized that Jewish intellectuals have never supported this tiny Jewish sect.
Let’s get back to our story. In November 2021, the Straussians sent Victoria Nuland to summon the Russian government to stand behind them. But the Kremlin answered them by proposing a Treaty guaranteeing peace, that is to say by contesting not only the Straussian project, but also the alleged security policy of the United States . President Vladimir Putin has questioned the extension of NATO to the East, which threatens his country, and the way in which Washington continues to attack and destroy States, in particular in the “Broader Middle East”.
The Straussians then deliberately provoked Russia to get it out of its hinges. They encouraged the Ukrainian “integral nationalists” to bomb their compatriots in Donbass and to prepare a simultaneous attack on Donbass and Crimea . Moscow, which had no faith in the Minsk Accords and had been preparing for a global clash since 2015, felt the time had come. 300,000 Russian soldiers entered Ukraine to “denazify” the country . The Kremlin rightly considers that the “integral nationalists”, who had made an alliance with the Nazis during the Second World War, still share its racial ideology.
Again, what I write is shocking. The reference books of Ukrainian nationalists have never been translated into Western languages, including Nationalism by Dmytro Dontsov. If no one knows what Dontsov did during World War II, everyone knows the crimes of his followers, Stepan Bandera and Yaroslav Stetsko. These people were devoted to Chancellor Adolf Hitler. They encouraged and sometimes supervised the murder of at least 1.7 million of their compatriots, including 1 million Jews. At first glance, it seems difficult to believe them allied with the Straussians and the Jewish President Zelensky as declared by the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergei Lavrov. Indeed, the Israeli Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett, immediately took a stand against them . He even advised President Zelensky to help the Russians cleanse his country of them. The balance of power is such that his successor, Yaïr Lapid, while sharing Bennett’s ideas and refusing to supply arms to Ukraine, holds an Atlanticist discourse. However, we remember that Paul Wolfowitz chaired an important congress in Washington with Ukrainian ministers. He pledged to support the fight of the nationalists against Russia .
Yet the links between the Ukrainian “integral nationalists” and the “revisionist Zionists” of the Ukrainian Vladimir Jabotinsky are historic. They negotiated an agreement, in 1921, according to which they would unite against the Bolsheviks. Given the long succession of pogroms which the “Ukrainian nationalists” had already perpetrated, the revelation of this agreement, once Jabotinsky had been elected to the Board of Directors of the World Zionist Organization, provoked a unanimous rejection from the Jewish Diaspora. took control of the Jaboti militia nsky in Palestine, called him a “fascist” and a “possibly Nazi”. Subsequently, Jabotinsky went into exile in New York where he was joined by another Pole, Bension Netanyahu, the father of Benjamin Netanyahu, who became his private secretary .
After World War II, the mastermind Dontsov and the two chief assassins, Bandera and Stetsko, were picked up by the Anglo-Saxons. The first was exiled to Canada, then to the United States despite his past as administrator of the Reinhard Heydrich Institute in charge of coordinating the “final solution” , while the other two were in Germany to work on the CIA’s anti-communist radio . After Bandera’s assassination, Stetsko became co-chairman (with Chiang Kai-shek) of the Anti-Communist World League in which the CIA unites its favorite dictators and criminals, including Klaus Barbie.
Back to our topic. The Straussians have nothing to do with Ukraine. What interests them is the domination of the world and therefore the lowering of all the other protagonists: of Russia [of China] and of the Europeans. This is what Wolfowitz wrote in 1992 when he called these powers “competitors”, which they are not .
The Russians are not mistaken. That is why they sent very few troops to Ukraine. Three times less than the Ukrainian army. It is therefore foolish to interpret their slowness as a disappointment as they reserve themselves for the direct confrontation with Washington.
Speaking on October 16 at a volunteer swearing-in, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said: “Anyone who thinks that this war will end with Russian-Ukrainian negotiations does not live in this world. The reality is different”. According to him, only a US-Russian negotiation can put an end to it.
Today, the Straussians have pushed for the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines. Contrary to what some claim, it is not a question of breaking the Russian economy, which has other customers, but German industry which cannot do without them . Normally Berlin should have reacted to the crime of its overlord. Nay! It’s quite the opposite. As soon as Olaf Scholtz arrived at the Chancellery, his government set up a vast system aimed at “harmonizing news” . It is overseen by Home Secretary, Social Democrat Nancy Faeser. All Russian media aimed at Western audiences were banned by the “democracies” from February 24, 2022, i.e. from the application by the Russian army of Council Resolution 2202 of security. Now, in Germany, quoting this resolution and sharing the Russian interpretation is considered “propaganda”. It is very surprising to see the Germans scuttle their institutions themselves. In the 20th century, Germany, which had been the beacon of Science and Technology before the First World War, became in a few years a blind country which committed the worst crimes. In the 21st century, when its industry was the most successful in the world, Germany is blind again for no reason. The Germans themselves endorse their fall to the benefit of Poland, that of the European Union to the benefit of the Three Seas Initiative (Intermarium) .
For their part, the Straussians use their privileges in Germany. The US military bases there have complete extraterritoriality and the federal government has no right to limit their activity. Thus, when in 2002 Chancellor Gerhard Schröder opposed the Straussian war in the Middle East, he could not prevent the Pentagon from using its facilities in Germany as rear bases for its invasion and destruction of Iraq.
It was in Ramstein (Rhineland-Palatinate) that the Defense Contact Group of Ukraine met. The delegates of the fifty or so invited states, after having been extorted for providing kyiv with a multitude of weapons, were entitled to explanations on the Resistance Operating Concept (ROC). It is a question of reactivating for the umpteenth time the stay-behind networks set up at the end of the Second World War . At the time, they were first created by the American CIA and the British MI6, before being integrated into NATO. The former Nazis and the Ukrainian “integral nationalists” were the main component.
The current stay-behind network has been coordinated since 2013 by NATO at its base in Stuttgart-Vaihingen (Baden-Württemberg) where the US Special Forces for Europe (SOCEUR) reside. It is a question of creating a government in exile and of organizing sabotage on the model of what General Charles De Gaulle and the prefect Jean Moulin did during the Second World War. Otto C. Fiala added the non-violent demonstrations tested by Professor Gene Sharp in the Eastern bloc,then during the “colored revolutions” . Remember that, contrary to what he claimed, Gene Sharp has always worked for the Atlantic Alliance . The first manifestation of the Ukrainian Stay-behind took place on October 8 with the sabotage of the Crimean Bridge, over the Kerch Strait.
The Leo Straussian origins and evolution of the US Neocons is a big topic to investigate in itself. That they now make all the major policy decisions of the Deep State (and hence all of AngloEuroZionLand) is not in dispute.
Completely outrageous that a tiny number of fanatical psychopaths should be threatening the thermonuclear extinction of all humanity.
Isn’t the solution to quandry this obvious?
ugh, yet another typo:
*Isn’t the solution to this quandary obvious?
Missing from the Financial aspect of this article is the financialization of natural gas, as in Derivatives. As I understand these, a Contract to provide natural gas, not the actual delivery thereof, is what is important, as a contract can be used as a hard asset and leveraged 30:1. Thus taking Nordstream out of the picture, first with sanctions, then with explosives, forces Europeans to contract for U$ natural gas. I find that this is a cogent explanation for this particular example of ‘All wars are Bankers’ Wars. And naturally, the City of London would be very involved in this, even beyond the intrinsic Slavophobia of the ehglish upper class.
Thanks for posting. This is what I’ve also read.
Add to that the european union recent changes for gas and energy pricing, where the default energy price is set as the highest price of intermodal energy for all, and you have a legalized mecanism for daylight robery. The money is being syphoned of to the creators of this mess.
A big question remains.. Why, oh why, did then-President of UA Yanukovych allow the Maidan to germinate and erupt from 2013-2014, under the watchful eye of his intelligence agencies, and with the force of his entire military behind him? It seems impossible that he was so weak and indecisive, when any other world leader would have crushed the violence of Maidan like a cockroach? Belarus is a good example.. Kazahkstan another.. Did he have no loyal ally for moral support during a difficult time?
The answer is that Yanukovich was not the “pro-Russian president” like the West claims. He was a Russian speaker,elected mostly by Russian speaking Ukrainians. But that did not make him Putin’s stooge. He tried to stay neutral and play both sides.And that was what destroyed him. Ukrainian politics was (is) a cesspool. He couldn’t count on the CIA infiltrated intelligence services. And the military was split,with most of the top ranks being people from West Ukraine. He was warned several times by the West not to crackdown on the Maidan rioters. And he was hoping until the last minute that he could salvage his position by obeying the West. He didn’t ask Russia to help him with troops.And I’m not sure Putin thought he could trust Yanukovich enough to offer them without being asked.
I seen it described that the coup in Ukraine, was primary a coup within the SBU by the usual suspects.
When you no longer control the intelligence apparatus all bets are off, I think that was the realization that made him run for the border … and FSB help him not get liquidated on his way out.

Michael Hudson credentials from wiki:
Hudson identifies himself as a Marxist economist,
Former Trotskyist trade unionist,
adherent of Modern Monetary Theory
(Believe in Fiat money issued by government)
In 1972, Hudson published Super Imperialism, which traced the history of the formation of American imperialism after the end of World War I.
(Why not 1898 American -Spanish War). He/you should read Wall Street, Banks, and American Foreign Policy by Murray N. Rothbard
He say — Money originated in book-keeping, not metals or barter or coinage.
He is against “rent seeking”
(What is “rent seeking” — probably leftist newspeak code word for interest.)
He/you should read Ludwig von Mises, essay Economic Calculation In The Socialist Commonwealth From1920. In it Mises Explains that socialism could not work because it could not distinguish more or less valuable uses of social resources, and predicted the system would end in chaos.
Wall Street, Banks, and American Foreign Policy by Murray N. Rothbard:
The great turning point of American foreign policy came in the early 1890s, during the second Cleveland administration. It was then that the U.S. turned sharply and permanently from a foreign policy of peace and non-intervention to an aggressive program of economic and political expansion abroad.
Here is a list of US (military, not counting coups) interventions up to the 1890ies; it doesn’t appear to have been a foreign policy of peace and non-intervention at all, but what would I know? I’m not a history professor.

PCR does not believe Wall Street is run by the market, but by market manipulations.
Michael Hudson does not believe economy is run by the market, but by market manipulations.
Stalin did not want any economy run by the market.
They call it political economy.
Lenin’s New Economic Policy (NEP). In a stunning about-face on March 21, 1921, the NEP began undoing the previous four years. Expropriation of businesses and the nationalization of industries stopped. Lenin proclaimed a partial restoration of, in his own words, “a free market and capitalism.” Even state-owned firms would seek to operate on a “profit” basis. Individuals could own small enterprises again. Market prices would be permitted in place of state directives.
A little bit of freedom goes a long way. In this instance, it turned the economy around and saved the infant Bolshevik tyranny. But it did not last long. Three years later, Lenin would be dead. Before the end of the decade, Stalin obliterated the NEP with a massive collectivist campaign to re-socialize the economy. Of the NEP, former US national security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote in his 1989 book, The Grand Failure, “For many Russians, even more than sixty years later, these were the best years of the era ushered in by the revolution of 1917.”
Is the economy headed by iron laws, as Karl Marx promoted.
No. Economy is headed by humans, as told in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
So Michael Hudson is right.
I was dummified by university about “economic laws”.
I was born in SFRY — and educated there ( brainwashed is correct word). I was there in time of hyperinflation between 1992 and 1994, you can read entry on wikipedia.
I live in Australia now, (Australia Citizenship by Naturalization)
economic laws exist — they are not laws in sense of gravity — instantly happening —
my life experience –hyperinflation — teaches me not to believe any one who support fiat money and central banking.
it did not read anything from him — Michael Hudson –but from wikipedia entry –he loves fiat money and central bank.
What is going to happen now .. no QE and a 2% rate hike from FED March 2023,
I will love to see your face when it all comes down …
Capitalism can not work because it can not distinguish more or less valuable uses of social resources, and I predict the system will end in chaos.
I see it as a problem of rewarding the wrong behaviours. A race to the bottom where he who gets the most money, regardless of the benefits or costs to society, gets to make the rules.
Even gdp numbers are just numbers. they give the same weight to primary resources such as farming or mining, secondary such as industry or tertiary, such as services. And inside services, finantial services, imaginary concepts such as i.p. get the same value as real tangebly services, as lets say schools or massages.
But as those non tangible services are not bound to physical properties, they give an exagerated return which no physical objects could give. And a lot of control too.
E.g. with the finantial leverage you can get returns of bazilions by compounding operations on top of another, leeching the system as bloodworms swimming in a sea of microtransactions which skim the fat and meat out of the bones of real physical producing enterprises.
Lets not even talk about the cattle and how their savings and 401Ks get fleeced by this while drowned in propaganda to the point where we went from a single source of income providing a whole family, to having to live with your parents until 40 because your salary cannot afford the rent, in a couple generations , without that much resistance.
So, is bound to happen. Don’t know what will come after this, but what we are living as ‘democratic’ west is not sustainable.
The traditonal markets work fine. Even at the time of Jesus there would be a market place, and smartasses could buy cheap and sell expensive.
When Karl Marx wrote free market does not work he was fooling us.
The obsession with oil as the underlying backing of the US$ and other currencies simply needs to be changed to other commodities or goods.
As Andrei Martyanov said – real wealth is production of food and steel etc…
US production capacity and output of food, aircraft and other mfg goods is a real asset.
But the activities of US banks needs to be reviewed.
– US media accuses Russia of election interference once again
Notice RT does not use (correctly) “US media claims Russia of election interference once again”, but the factual “accuses”.
When source is Russian it becomes “claims”
RT in Surovikin story:
– Such troops have low morale, thus they are propped up by “barrier squads” composed of hardline nationalists “who shoot anyone trying to leave the battlefield,” he claimed.
RT is distancing themselves from “barrier squads” as if this is not factual information
Brzezinski was Polish brought up in Canada and you can only wonder why Trudeau is also in the same mold.
The US monetary system isnt controlled from US but its FED owners in UK & EU. Only the second tier banks in the system are somewhat US controlled and owned. Only 3rd and 4th tier small banks at State level generally are locally controlled & owned and they don’t have money creation power. Most things are directed from the devils outside US.
This is the age old practice of those who really control things masking themselves behind layers of paid operatives and shell companies etc…. .
Why should the US give damn about Russia & UKN ? But their puppetmasters do.
The author also forgets about large oil reserves in Alaska.
Here is my guess at the next last ditch effort : The US will invade and occupy Saudi Arabia, based upon the ‘perceived’ threat of them not cooperating with the oil price or Fiat dollar, serious ‘threats’ to the US world. Their military is relatively weak, they have few real friends, even in area, and once we are there with Israel nearby what will Russia be able to do about it ? But once in control of the Saudi oil then the US will be back in the drivers seat. Assuming, LOL, I also guess that Iran or somebody in theatre does not blow up the infrastructure with a few stealthy drones. Call it a ‘pipe dream’ of the Neo Cons, I would further guess/speculate this is being seriously considered in the halls of the deep state, USA !
You are absolutely right that the CIA etc must certainly be trying to work out some devious plan to bring Saudi Arabia “back in line”. Only trouble is that the US plans have tended to backfire on them badly.
They will be looking at regime change tactics first: Color revolution? Likely to be brutally oppressed by the head chopping Monarchial police state. Assassinate MBS? Not that easy, the CIA tried hundreds of times with Castro and failed. Direcy US military action? US already has multiple bases in SA so this will be a serious consideration. I wonder how the USA will spin it to the world: the USA suddenly realises after nearly a century what a nasty brutal regime the Saudi Royals are so they need to bring democracy to SA…
Only problem is that the fanatical Wahhabis and Salafists are likely to blow up the oil infrastructure before allowing the dirty infidels to get their hands on it..
Curtailment of SA oil exports will cause global economic collapse, not that the USA cares, if their own economy is going down the toilet anyway.
Re: Alaskan oil. Now that the North Slope fields (Prudhoe bay etc) have tumbled down the Hubbert curve with lousy EROI, you can be certain the US would have exploited any other economically recoverable sources in Alaska if there were any (rather than, say, invade Iraq or steal from Syria or hijack Iranian tankers.)
Rumors of vast oil deposits in ANWR are just that: rumors. Where are the seismic survey reports? US claims that they are respecting an environmentally sensitive area are laughable given that they have zero respect for the environmental vandalism they cause from shale oil and gas fracking. Canadian tar sand environmental vandalism is far worse but that is another story.
From the net (dated 2008 about something that happened in the 70-ties)
– The oil under Gull Island, Alaska, appears to be just a pipe dream
by Joyce Pines
Linsey Williams is very crediable
Prudhoe Bay is running at 15% capacity because of rules introduced by Obama.
There are 1200 employed at Prudhoe Bay at current time, while normal employment is 10,000.
Only 5% of the oil is used because of muddiness. There is aboundance of natural gas … now pumped down into the earth. The gas cannot be sent by ships to mainland, and there is no pipeline for gas.
When considering North Pole, Russia will have 10 times the resources of Alaska .. causing oil prices to collapse?
” I wonder how the USA will spin it to the world: …”
There is always 911 and the Saudi connection …
“There are only two possible outcomes: either the USA backs down or there will be global nuclear Armageddon. There is nothing in between.”
I’m hoping there is one more outcome: the US is de-natzified before any of that takes place. It stands to reason that many of citizens, who’ve lived and died for freedom under the Nazi yoke do not want a repeat of this history. Never mind it be twice in one lifetime.
Thanks for an excellent article!
Using contemporary terminology,
deNazification = deNeocon-ization
