I am traveling with my wife for a couple of days. I am also celebrating my birthday, so between the travels and my desire to disconnect for 48 hours, I leave you with an open thread asking you to please stick to the topic of the NATO war against Russia. To launch the conversation, I would offer these two headlines:
First, just as I thought I said all that I could say about Poland, this happened:
“Russian OSCE delegation denied visas by Poland”
Then they are going to wonder why nobody respects them.
Next, another good one:
“Finland To Erect Costly High-Security Fence Along Russian Border”
That has got to be one of the dumbest political decision in decades… … especially since the Ukies and the Poles already tried that :-)
Building walls as a highest expression of one’s ideology.
All I can do is repeat the words of Roger Waters I quoted in my previous post and ask: “did they expect us to treat them with any respect?!”
What do you think?
Hugs and cheers,
PS: FYI – I expect to be back at the keyboard by Tuesday.
It isn’t Ukraine they are so intent on defending — it’s their control over their neoliberal system as Putin stops them over and over from doing what they want, when they want, and how they want. First he stopped their pillaging of Russia, then Syria, and who knows what else has been put on hold because of a fear of Putin? Invading Iran maybe? Central Asia? From Whom the Gods Would Destroy They First Make Mad
Putin also stopped ‘them’ when he took power in Russia and reversed Yeltsin’s willingness to go along with the rape of Mother Russia. Recall the Magnitsky Act? That was revenge by Bill Browder for losing his catbird’s seat in the Great Steal. Putin went from Times ‘Man of the Year’ to public enemy #1 very soon after he kicked the vultures out of Russia.
The late Professor Stephen F Cohen claimed that Putin was the most demonized world leader in contemporary history.
The West hates Putin.
They hate Putin because he isn’t Yeltsin who was the biggest disaster for Russia,that drunken clown allowed western corporate jackals to run riot in the Country and American spies to infest Russia,Putin changed all that brought the Oligarchs under control etc.
No, Putin is hated because he is not on-board with the WEF Program – you know, the Great Re-set that comes after they destroy your country?
There are still lots of folks scratching their heads trying to figure out what their government is acting stupid (or crazy). That’s not what they are doing. They are just plain EVIL.
It’s a big step from seeing government as stupid to realizing that they aren’t, they are just plain EVIL. I know, I know, that sounds rather melodramatic maybe. But try it. Look at what is happening as the unfolding of a great evil. I bet you will begin to see how all of the dots are connecting.
Melodramatic perhaps, but true nonetheless.
Happy Birthday Andrei, and have an enjoyable trip.
I’ve not much to say at this time, except that the self-defeating idiocy of the EU and the rest of the ‘west’s leadership continues to show no bounds.
Recently, it seems there has been a few glimmers of awareness in some of the EU population tho, with some ‘Stop killing the Donbass’ and related, protests.
The NATO and MSM massive propaganda campaign has been quite effective tho, so it will take some hard, cold facts of reality sinking in to counter the brainwashing, I fear.
“Russian OSCE delegation denied visas by Poland”
Consequence for Russia: No change, because the OSCE doesn’t listen to Russia anyhow.
Consequences for Poland: Cheers from the evil Empire. Isolation from 2/3 of the Global population
“Finland To Erect Costly High-Security Fence Along Russian Border”
Finland has a 1300km Border to Russia and is building 70Km of fence line. Can you say: Virtue signaling?
Virtue signaling is when people screams moralism at its opponents, but don’t have the courage to fight for it.
However, it worries me that the Finnish Populations has been hijacked by Fascist leaders, who have sold Finland to be used by NATO as the next stage-ground for provocations against Russia, and the Finnish population will bear the brunt of Russian retaliation of these confrontation.
I respect the Finnish population, but have lost all respect for NATO and NAZI warmongers.
Happy birthday Andrei.
“I’ve not much to say at this time, except that the self-defeating idiocy of the EU and the rest of the ‘west’s leadership continues to show no bounds”.
No. Stop thinking that these people are idiots. You are letting them off the hook. They are not idiots. They are not stupid. They are not fools. As I said to Englishman (above) this is Evil. This is a small group of Very Powerful Individuals made so by all of the money they have stolen from the People. And with this monetary power they can buy whoever they need in order to implement their program of despotism.
Happy Birthday, Andrei! Have a nice trip!
And enjoy — nonetheless because times for all of us tend to become harsher, as soon as Russia defeats what is left of Ukraine, and the warmongers at Washington DC enter on despair mode.
The only way for the planet to avoid WWIII would be the US to acknowledge their hegemony is gone for good — seemingly, not going to happen
Also my sincere birthday-wishes. The Vineyard for adults keeps providing fresh air for rational breathing. To me, since the beginning in March 2014, it gave a home on the slowly rising new continent of future in multipolarity.
Concerning the comments: Stunning for me, the constant change of the participants over run of 8 years, like a kind of leaves for a, or a number of seasons, a few like a stem, remaining …
At the instance of * Saker, here an old piece by mundo of 2016
“Astrology with the Saker”
I have studied and practiced astrology for over 50 years now (began in summer 1971). “Mundo’s” essay is incomprehensible to me. It makes me think of the adage, ‘a little knowledge can be dangerous’ – at least “dangerous” to making sense of things.
I won’t go into all of the things that are wrong in this essay, just noticed at the very outset he uses TWO times: 2:19 and 2:13 for the “birthchart of the Saker” on May 2nd. This is just plain sloppiness. It doesn’t change the ascendant of the chart would one really should get the time right.
The main actor right now in the USA is Pluto. He is coming back to his place on July 4, 1776. That’s one complete revolution thru the Zodiac from the inception of the United States until now. This is what is called a Return. All planets will return to their birth time places. Pluto being the farthest out has the longest period – some 240 years.
Pluto is the agent of death and transformation. He causes one system to end (“death”) so that a new one can begin. I saw this Pluto Return coming years ago. I saw it as happening at exactly the same time as America’s Fourth Turning, which is the Crisis stage of the cycle.
America will not survive this. It could have if, I say IF, it had seen the need for “death” and gone with that need. Instead it has been fought every step of the way. And you can’t fight Pluto. That is the worst thing to do. So now we will reap “death” of this noble experiment in Republicanism (not Democracy – a Republic!).
Mundo should direct his thoughts to this.
Over the last several months, I have gone back to this website:
, to look at the night-time satellite view of the Ukraine. I was hoping to see a difference between a clear night last May and a clear night in November, but the contrast is not as great as I expected.
Already last May it was definitely darker than the surrounding countries. You can see bright lights in Romania, Moldova, Poland, Belarus, and the huge web of development around Moscow. In the Ukraine, the lights of Kiev are perhaps somewhat dimmer now, but there are some persistent spots of light to the east of the city. Also, there are new bright spots on the map in November that were not there in May.
Like so many other observations about this conflict, it is not easy to interpret and understand their significance.
Because the West has sent tens of thousands of generators to Ukraine, and I’m not talking about the Furmans you buy for your house.
My friends from Kiev and Odessa have never lost their internet, and rarely lose electricity.. They talk about life, not war, so it is difficult to determine who and where are without water/power..
Thanks for the link, and here is one you might find interesting:
Now, think back to the famous line from the woman who wants “Victoria” to take someone else’s land and make it her “Nuland”.
What better way to write another chapter of F… the EU than to send some more millions of Ukrainians to press upon the already freezing Europeans?
So, apologies to Saker – this comment is addressing NATO’s war against Europe. The leaders are so insane now that is difficult to decipher what they are really up to (assuming for a brief moment that there is a coherent thought behind all this).
Yeah, I saw that headline too. But my question was, why are the lights still on? If all civilians absconded to Europe, wouldn’t they turn off their lights?
As for leaving the Ukraine, I have the impression that everyone who wanted to leave, and was able to leave, has left. They left over the past 8 or 9 years. And that explains why the lights were already dim last spring. But the lights are not much dimmer now, after the missile strikes.
Thousands of generators perhaps, if there is no shortage of fuel for them.
No doubt the Russian MoD has noticed the same bright spots on the map and has incorporated them in its plans. I was merely curious.
I think the suggestion to travel is recent so not many had time since then, but also true that the wealthier left already in months past. I personally have seen many Ukrainians moving around Europe.
It gives me the chills just to think about how all the millions in Europe living in apartments will make it through this winter. Really not funny.
Always to remember: Bearbock, Habek,Scholz – all participants of
‘ Young-Leaders’-Program of the WEF.
YES! exactly. Now someone with the right perspective. and focus.
FGB3 im lost on what to do before this collapse gos full throttle, should people leave the west? or “ride it out” somehow
Rā whānau Saker.
The same way the financial elites run the casino, the political elites operate their wars, forever doubling down on a losing bet/situation. Wreckless abandon, with zero forethought to the consequences of their actions, especially with/in regard to the Great Unwashed/peasants
Unfortunately, there’s a strong correlation between the elites’ psychotic tendencies and over zealousness and the apathy, ignorance and spinelessness of the proletariat.
Happy Birthday. I, too, am having a birthday this week: on Thanksgiving Day. I was born on Thanksgiving Day in 1949 at 11:32 a.m. My father said that I ruined Thanksgiving dinner;), The next time the 24th falls on Thanksgiving Day will be in 2033. I might well be spending that day in Madden Cemetery with my honored ancestors. My prayer is that whether I am among the quick or among the dead that this empire of the Collective West will be no more and that the world will have a chance at a more peaceful run.
Again, a right Happy Birthday!
Andrei, Happy Birthday to you and many,many more !!!!!
Have a great birthday!

Have a wonderful birthday and time off Andrei!
Cheers and warmest regards
This open thread is unusual for the Saker, but a similiar blog is nothing but Open Thread, with a rare article about what the NY Times lied about.. It is good, for those interested, to source their war-news from a Russian site, or even a UA site(strana-news), to avoid the echo chamber of western mis-information.. The reader’s comments, in translation, on Russian sites is always refreshing, with a varied mix of views..
Many Happy Returns of the Day, Andrei! Is it on the 20th or the 21st of November? I hope your travels are very enjoyable and look forward to your next article/talk, as always – greetings from NZ
“Finland To Erect Costly High-Security Fence Along Russian Border”
It has to be pretty high fence if they want to stop Mr. Iskander & friends to drop in.
The fence is to stop the Finnish people from fleeing to Russia.
С днем рождения!
Happy Birthday Andrei.
Hope you have a great day and much deserved time off.
First of all happy Birth Day and wish you a very nice trip. We read the news about Finland wanting to erect a steel mesh 1500~ km long which is going to cost lots and lots of tax payer’s money. But certainly, the actual reason for that given the size, population and general standing of Oslo on the grand chessboard of the global geopolitics, is that she wants to send a message to others to say look here I am, or in other words draw attention. For sure in psychology there’s a precise definition but now let’s call it a retro-reflexive infantile complex – a reaction by someone who seeks more and more attentions which never seem to get enough of. The reports about joining NATO is also caused to the same deep rooted childhood complex.
You could also say that given the size, population and general standing of Helsinki, it’s time for Norway to build a wall around its 100,000-kilometre coast.
I’ve mentioned this to Cafeistas, that the US/NATO might be trying to lull Russia into a false sense of security and persuade it not to finish off the Ukronazis over this winter – DEC-JAN-FEB
If thats what the US/NATO are attempting, I just hope that Putin & Russia, do not fall for it.
We’re seeing, some subtle, e.g. Biden’s quip about muscles on a Russian at the G20 (recalling JFK attending a Bolshoi ballet performance during the 1962 ‘Cuban’ Missile Crisis) and some overt signs, e.g. Gen. Milley’s spilling the beans over Ukraine’s chances, which he then had to walk back the day after).
So yesterday, US Defense Secretary Lloyd ‘Raytheon’ Austin at the Halifax International Security Forum, Canada: “NATO is a defensive alliance. It does not seek confrontation with Russia. It poses no threat to Russia …
“Make no mistake, we will not be dragged into Putin’s war of choice. But we will stand by Ukraine as it fights to defend itself. And we will defend every inch of NATO territory”, he said.
Remember Austin’s visit to Kiev on 25 APR when he vowed to cripple forever Russia’s military capability?
Looks like its full-steam-in-reverse from the US top brass.
I maintain that Russia has a 3 month window to take all of Ukraine & share the spoils of victory amongst Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia & Belarus on a one-in-all-in basis – if VVP so chooses.
And you cant tell me that the ‘jackal of Europe’ aka hyena, would be chomping at the bit to regain its historical lands of Galicia.
Almost 10 months since the beginning of the Russian SMO.
On the military level in Ukraine things are going well for the Russians. They managed to prevent troubles between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The same between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The refusal of escalation by the USA after the provocation of the missile fired by Ukraine on Poland has probably sealed the fate of Ukraine. By refusing to intervene, the US accepts the results on the ground.
On the international political level the Russians have scored many points by giving a momentum towards multipolarity.
The abandonment of the dollar is progressing well. A new system is being put in place.
Gas and oil flows are turning away from the EU and towards China and India. In the long run the effects will be devastating.
In terms of the real economy, the war is already having devastating effects in the EU. It is only accelerating. BASF has announced the relocation. Will it relocate according to its markets? One part in the USA and one part in China? Or all in the USA?
In 10 months these are impressive results. But the struggle continues on all fronts. :
Will the war in Ukraine continue for a long time? I see a possible end next year. It will be followed by Russian trials of the violation of international law in Ukraine by Ukrainians and their sponsors. At the same time we can ask ourselves what are the conditions for these trials to have a great impact?
The continuation of the struggle will be determined in large part by the fate of the $. Will it still be able to finance the US budget deficit? It is the dollar that allows the US to stir up trouble in many places. Rapid decline with a break-up triggering the dissolution of the Union. Or gradual decline.
Will the industrial and financial incapacity of the collective West to rearm itself have a breaking effect in the ongoing global war? I believe and hope so. The network of coerced alliances will dissolve, dragging down the dollar and liberating many countries.
The iron power of the collective West is moribund.
How can anyone be classed as a ‘leader’ when their major policy is to support and prolong a needless war ?
The west doesn’t have leaders they have psychotic war mongers masquerading as ambassadors of freedom.
The number of poor, sick, homeless, hungry people in the regimes of the west should be an absolute embarrassment to those in power, but is it ? No, they really don’t care about their own peoples, their overriding aim is to protect the corrupt and cruel hegemony of the USA and it’s puppets – at any cost.
NATO really is just a North American Terrorist Organisation and the EU is Educationally Unfit to exist.
Some years ago i mentioned that Putin will take 9 oblasts under RF wing. Now it seems he will take them all, gift some to belarus, poland, slovakia, hungary and romania.
Dont criticize Putins chess/judo as the entire RF military is on standby, minor pieces active in Ukraine…
Dima for military summary said that one of the purposes for the massive strikes on 17/11/22 was to stop Ukraine from stealing Russian gas.
Germany and Poland had bought Russian gas that was meant to be delivered through Ukraine but instead they were filling up their reserves to prepare for the coming winter.
Russia knew what was happening all along but waiting for them to be filled up, that’s when they decided to take out the gas transport infrastructure so that that gas couldn’t be consumed.
G-g-golly! I hope those big gas tanks don’t blow up!
There is a good piece, well written, on the New Eastern Journal, on the background to the US policy in Europe. Whilst at first glance this may not relate to the NATO war against Russia located in Ukraine, it does. The author shows the massive riches the US gains from forcing Europe via it’s dominant Role in NATO, to continue to undertake war, and the transfer of wealth from Europe to the US MIC and political block, from the impoverishment of Europe via Europe, sanctions, and destroyed gas lines.
It’s well written, and ties in with Batiushkas” piece of the coming return to the Stone Age of Europe and the millions who will perish and why, ultimately, it’s all happened. AS is so often the case, what we see on the surfae is barely skin deep, and the causes lie fathoms deep beneath the waves [so to speak].
Just don’t get too focused upon the USA as if it is the main protagonist in this destruction of the West. It isn’t. It is being used as a proxy by the World Economic Forum and other NGOs who are orchestrating their Great Re-set (once known as the New World Order).
Well, maybe Rand is a tool of the WEF, or maybe not, but in many ways they are pretty much all arms of the same plant I think.
In todays InfoRuss there is an article very much in tune with the one I cited above, and easily readable using a computer translator. I quote the most relevant part here for those without one.
”’….on January 25, 2022, the RAND Corporation prepared a document for the NSA and the CIA. Hackers pulled it out, and it’s online. This document is called ” Saving America, weakening Germany.” It says in plain text that the situation in America is such that without material and financial resources from outside, it will not be able to survive. There are only two sources from which to get these resources. China or the EU. But China is a subject of world politics, unlike the European Union, which is only an inferior political body. And, in addition, the Chinese economy is tied to the American one.
Therefore, the conclusion was made very, very simple. I’ll even quote it. “An increase in the flow of resources from Europe to the United States can be expected if Germany begins to experience a controlled economic crisis. The pace of the EU’s economic development depends almost exclusively on the state of the German economy.” And then it says who the German economy depends on. It depends on Russian resources and French electricity.
The French will be dealt with very simply, as they are currently having problems in the Sahel. France has now become very dependent on Canadian and Australian fuel, and they can be put under pressure.
As for the German-Russian economic ties, it was said this way, and I quote it verbatim.
“The only appropriate way to guarantee Germany’s rejection of Russian energy is to involve both sides in a military conflict in Ukraine. Our further actions in this country will inevitably lead to a response from Russia. Not only will the Russians not be able to ignore the massive pressure of the Ukrainian army on the unrecognized republics of Donbass, but they can be declared an aggressor, and a full package of sanctions can be waged against them. Then Putin may respond by imposing counter-sanctions on energy supplies to Europe. The damage caused to the EU countries will be comparable to the damage to the Russian Federation, but for Germany it will be even greater.”
This is one of the main reasons for the mess that the Anglo-Saxons made on our border.
Andrei, happy birthay and have a Nice Time.
A few months back there was a debate whether Russia would give western Ukraine to Poland, I too thought that would happen. Personally, now I can confirm Russia has no plans to gift Poland western Ukraine because of the following reasons.
In late July, Lukashenko openly said that he will never allow Poland to encircle Belarus by annexing western Ukraine and also said that his main role in the SMO was to ensure Poland and the Baltic states don’t “stab Russia in the back”.
Judging by those statements, I would argue Russia would rather give that territory to Belarus or leave it to the future rump Ukraine than giving it to Poland.
Recently, Poland declared Russia as a terrorist state. Well, we all know the Russians have a tendency of have a working relationship with anyone regardless of the past. Let’s assume the conflict ended today, do you really think Russia can even talk to those “cheap prostitutes” after declaring Russia a terrorist state?
The Poles have stripped to such lows that even their masters can never do because if the US ever declared Russia a terrorist state then Russia stops talking to them completely. And we all know when countries stop talking to each other, they start shooting at each other. Am sure the US doesn’t want that but Poland does because it’s only looking for relevance.
Happy birthday Dear Andrei….
As I mentioned in another thread, people freezing in Europe this winter should
constantly remember that they are suffering so that those with power can continue to
be fed their kickbacks.
An extreme case of conflict of interest. If peace comes to Europe then the
flow of kickbacks to the powerful will decrease.
The US Congress sends billions in funds to Ukraine. Despite protests from some members of Congress
these funds are ***un-audited****. Where do these funds go? Where do the funds from black marketed US weaponry go?
The US sends unaudited funds to Ukraine. Ukraine then launders a portion of those funds back to US bloody criminals.types. The cycle then repeats.
What is the means of laundering those funds?
One method, of possibly many, was the use of FTX.
According to a report filed to a bankruptcy court, the CEO of FTX
had a backdoor which he could use to transfer user funds from one use account to another
without leaving a financial trail. No transaction records. This is the perfect “black box” for laundering funds.
And did Ukraine invest in FTX? – YES
And did FTX financially support politicians in the US? – YES
The CEO of FTX was one of the largest donors during the recent US midterms elections.
You will easily find MSM articles saying that experts claim that no laundering was taking place. What they are really saying is,
“catch me if you can”.
Europeans should remember this winter that they are freezing so as to maintain a lucrative kickback scheme.
It’s par for the course when these countries follow US dictates. After all, those politicians are paid by the US money machine to behave the way the US hegemon demands. Nothing new here.
Paying off African, Latin American, Middle Eastern,Central European, Indonesia politicians has been standard-operating practices by the US for decades.
After Putin cleaned House in Russia, the US tried every tool in the tool box. It was semi-operable for the remaining super wealthy Russians. Not until the US Financial/Military Hegemon started realizing they were losing Profits for the Super Wealthy clients that they took aim at Russia and asap grabbed billions of Russian assets within the purvue of the US$$ System. That was one of the final straws for Russia who had already started Big Business with China and others: Brics.
The latest shelling of the nuke plant has the fingerprints of bomb so as to demand to see the damage of the bombing, this is classic western protocol.
The NATO war against Russia from all info I have is really the EU elites war against Russia using their lap dog the US as their military muscle, with a question mark about UK’s real commitment, and Ukraine radicals being their willing partner dating back to Stalin’s heavy handedness there (Poland too). (That is a mistake Stalin made he didnt realize the long term effects of).
A repeat of 1812 and 1941.
A re-run of the same old movie in a new form.
But the end will be the same as those.
Why Czechia or Hungry would be assisting in this is a question, but it will be due to their conflict with Moscow in 1956 and 1968. And Serbia due to Tito’s gripes with Stalin. But the people there I think won’t be shining to the EU.
The ECB, BOE and their puppet the FED are the tier 2 driver of all this.
They are going to have to accept the Eurasian block BRICS etc and their monetary plans are here to stay so theyll have to come up with some other strategy to survive adequately.
The same EU forces are trying to internally destroy the US to prevent sense prevailing there, and the US adopting a isolationist approach to this EU-Russia conflict which is in fact the correct thing.
This war is of course not embraced by ordinary people in EU.
Same as the 1941 campaign.
And this is why they are being domestically attacked too.
The end result of all of this is the EU elites behind this will go in the end.
The NATO forces will be defeated too and a lot of damage to Ukraine will be done too.
As PR exercise related to the current situation, Putin ought to offer a signed photo of himself from his office for any fans round the world for $50 with the funds going to families of Russian soldiers killed and to get injured ones some special rations. Or perhaps upload a high grade printable scan of one for download on the Kremlin website for $5. (I guarantee if Scholz, Macron, Sulak, Biden, von der Leyen etc… offered one they wouldnt sell many). Be a good thing to see.
Add to what I said above – the Putin signed photos really should be offered for $100 and $10,
More appropriate numbers.
“Finland To Erect Costly High-Security Fence Along Russian Border”.
Isn’t that good news? The more fences across europe the better – makes a complete mockery of:
“Schengen Area signifies a zone where 26 European countries, ****abolished**** their ****internal borders****, for the ****free and unrestricted movement of people****, in ****harmony**** with common rules for controlling external borders and fighting criminality by ****strengthening**** the common judicial system and police cooperation.
Schengen Area covers most of the EU countries, except Ireland and the countries that are soon to be part of the Schengen Area: Romania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, and Croatia. Although not members of the EU, countries like Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Lichtenstein are also part of the Schengen zone.
Schengen Area Countries
The 26 Schengen countries are Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.”
They might want to consider getting a move on before the hoards of Ukies start making in their direction when the juice runs out completely.
Strange- these fences (Finland) – is it to keep their people from fleeing to Russia for help when the EU attacks them ?
Why isnt Soros & co screaming about that fence given the WEF UN likes open borders – particularly US southern one.
Seems a good time to take a well-deserved break.
Maybe they got the go ahead and when they started packing up the invasion force they could only support another terrorist style false flag.
Then dang, the South Koreans wanted a fair price for the ammo, shoot. Those Pansie asses watched those secret films from the 50’s nuke tests and got cold feet. Commie sissies grow a pair already, lets rock and roll.
After watching Syria I expect the Russians to back down but another side says not without Odessa, sealing the coast and finishing NATO. The one lesson of Syria that should stick, no deal will go unbroken by the usual suspect.
When one looks at the details of the violence of this confrontation from when it started, 2014, earlier really, and carefully examine the history of the Nazis and those who support them, there are so many heads that need to role it’s laughable. They said it was a thousand-year Reich…
The disconnect between our governments and the people in the street is proof positive that ‘they” changed the definition of democracy. I used to think those guys blowing up truck bombs were nuts, but JFK was right, “when you make peaceful revolution impossible, you make violent revolution inevitable. And here we are.
This War on Russia is nothing more, nothing less, than a war of commerce. The U$A cannot bear any kind of competition involving our corporations, and their drive for global hegemony.
Yes, its that simple.
