We should not kid ourselves, this war is not, repeat, NOT about the Ukraine or even the future of the EU. This is a war which will decide whether the Anglo-Zionists will take full control of our planet or whether the last empire in history will be replaced by a multi-polar, multi-ethnic, multi-religious, multi-cultural, multi-political international order, regulated by the rule of law.
The Saker, 14 February 2023
The following describes only one of hundreds of possible future scenarios. Some may find this one particularly unthinkable. But if anyone on 17 February 2022 had predicted where we would be today, on 17 February 2023, they too would have been laughed at. Unthinkable? Nobody thought that the 500-year old Western abscess would burst on 24 February 2022, spreading its stink and poison all over the world. But it did. Nothing is now unthinkable in our new, multipolar world. This is both exciting and frightening, but it is also inevitable.

TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD
In New Ukraine
Our readers will remember the astounding Easter Peace Parade in Kiev on Sunday 5 May 2024, when tens of thousands of triumphant New Ukrainian, Russian and Belarussian troops marched together in solidarity through the centre of Kiev to celebrate peace after over two years of armed struggle and the final Slav victory over Nazism. The hundreds of thousands who had gathered to watch and listen to the speeches afterwards all felt that the common sense of unity and victory over Nazism was palpable.
After the Peace Parade, President Medvedchuk of New Ukraine (the seventeen Central and Western provinces of the old Soviet Ukraine) proclaimed in his speech on the Maidan Square that New Ukraine would be rebuilt as a federal civil society. With the old oligarchs expelled to Miami and Tel Aviv and their assets confiscated, he saw a new dawn for the new country. With its security guaranteed by the Allied Forces of Russia, New Ukraine and Belarus, his country had been able to reduce military spending greatly.
On the subject of debt to Western countries, especially to the USA, President Medvedchuk made it clear that this had nothing to do with New Ukraine and he suggested that lenders should contact ex-Presidents Poroshenko and Zelensky and other oligarchs in Tel Aviv. New Ukraine had borrowed nothing, it was debt-free. Cheap Russian energy would ensure that its people would at last be dragged out of the poverty and corruption into which they had fallen over thirty years before. He pointed with optimism to the ongoing restoration of infrastructure which Russia was carrying out in co-operation with Belarussian and Ukrainian technicians, aided by Chinese and Iranian engineers.
Standing behind President Medvedchuk were his guests, President Lukashenko and President Putin. The latter said in the speech that followed that the Russian Federation had finally been able to dismantle the last vestiges of the USSR, the Soviet Ukraine, the product of the three dictators, Lenin, Stalin and Khrushchov, restoring it to freedom. The nine Russian provinces of the east and south of the old Ukraine (Crimea, Lugansk, Donetsk, Kharkov, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporozhia, Kherson, Nikolaev, Odessa) had now all returned to the Russian Federation, exactly as the voters in internationally observed referenda in those provinces had desired. He was confident that the upcoming referenda in the provinces of Transcarpathia (renamed Carpatho-Rus) and Chernovtsy on possibly returning to Hungary and Romania respectively would express an overwhelming desire to remain in New Ukraine. This was with the exception of some border villages, which would be democratically ceded to those countries.
President Putin was confident that New Ukraine had a bright future as one of the three Allied States of Rus’. He added that massive Russian and Chinese investment, as enthusiastically already provided by President Xi, was going to make it into one of the leading states of Eurasia, as it had such rich agricultural and industrial resources. He also noted that 1,200,000 refugees who had fled the Nazi genocide in the old eastern Ukraine for Russia between 2014 and 2022 had already returned there to rebuild. President Medvedchuk added that 1,800,000 Ukrainians had already returned to the Federation of New Ukraine from Western countries, fleeing poverty there and keen to rebuild their new country, where there was work and investment in abundance. However, he said that all returnees were being carefully vetted. Any sign of Nazi sympathies would mean their permanent exclusion from New Ukraine. Already over 60,000 had been rejected. At this point President Lukashenko added: Nazis? Never again!’ The crowd that numbered over one million applauded these words enthusiastically, chanting them again and gain.
In the evening, after the Peace Parade, the eve of St George’s Day for Ukrainians, certain unruly elements in the crowd threw Molotov cocktails through the windows of the hastily evacuated US Embassy in Kiev. They vigorously called for Presidents Biden, von der Leyen and Zelensky, of whom the last had fled to Miami last February and is now in hiding there, to be tried for war crimes. This would be together with the other Nazis now on trial at the International War Crimes Tribunal in Mariupol.
Despite the best efforts of the Kiev fire services, the old Embassy could not be saved and was burned to the ground. Observers have said that it should never be rebuilt and be replaced with a huge memorial to all the victims of the US-run Nazi genocide of 2014-2024 of Ukrainian and Russian soldiers and civilians. This suggestion was greeted with enthusiasm, as it was from its roof that American and Lithuanian snipers had killed so many Ukrainians in February 2014, which had started the whole catastrophe which ended the old Ukraine.
In the EU
The notes of optimism in New Ukraine on 5 May contrasted with the sombre mood and outright chaos in the rest of Europe, as coup after coup in country after country toppled the old elites, most of whom have fled to the US. Readers will recall how after the victory and breakthrough at Bakhmut in March 2023, Russian forces had sped onwards to the eastern banks of the River Dniepr, while in the south amphibious landings around Odessa had led to the almost peaceful surrender of Russian-speaking Odessa in just two weeks.
The shock in the West produced by these events was partly caused by the failure of the West to understand that when Russia temporarily cedes territory, it does not mean that it is losing. In 1812 it ceded Moscow and in 1941 it nearly did the same. It was called a scorched earth policy. Yet in 1814 Russian troops occupied Paris and in 1945 Berlin. Today, having temporarily ceded some small areas in the old eastern Ukraine in 2022, Russia is a guest in the Kiev of New Ukraine, where it has restored democracy after comprehensively demilitarising and denazifying the old Ukraine in just twenty-six months.
We remind readers that according to the CIA Factbook the five countries with the largest GNP in the world in 2023 were, in order, China, US, India, Japan and Russia. Since Russia overtook Germany in 2023, this meant that there is no longer a single Western European country in the top five. Indeed, both Indonesia and Brazil have larger economies than France and the UK, which are Nos 9 and 10 in the list.
It was the chain of events that followed the Russian victory in Bakhmut last March that eventually led to the request from Berlin to Moscow in January 2024 to repair the Nordstream pipelines which had been blown up by the US, as it had admitted. When the US officially forbade any repairs on 6 May this year, dramatic scenes took place as Bundeswehr troops with Leopard tanks immediately surrounded the main US base in Germany at Ramstein and threatened to attack if US forces were not evacuated by the end of the month firing at key buildings and destroying three warplanes.
This had followed the mass violent street demonstrations against all things American in various German cities, especially in the east, which had forced Chancellor Scholz into hiding in a bunker somewhere in Berlin. The US duly began flying out of Ramstein the next day. Russian and German technicians reckon that repairs to Nordstream should be finished by late July. German businessmen are eager for Russian gas supplies to be restored. The repair bill will be sent to Washington and Oslo. If they do not pay, all their assets in Germany will be frozen. Rumour has it that the new German government is going to impose sanctions against the US.
On 7 May mass demonstrations in Paris turned ugly, with the French CRS paramilitary police refusing to open fire on hungry crowds. After three days of siege ex-President Macron and his wife, who is said to have told the crowds ‘to eat cake’ if they had no bread, were forced to flee. They left in a private helicopter paid for by the Rothschild Bank from their residence at the Elysee Palace. From there they were taken by an anti-government French military plane from the Vélizy-Villacoublay airbase outside Paris to Tel Aviv. The new French government led by Marine Le Pen declared that France was leaving NATO and the EU. When elderly bureaucrats in Brussels stated that France would not be allowed to leave, the Le Pen government froze all EU assets in French banks and surrounded the EU Parliament in Strasbourg with tanks because it represented ‘an unelected government’.
In Italy the 87-year old President Berlusconi, who attributes his immense energy to daily doses of viagra, has declared that all US bases in Italy must be evacuated by the end of June, or else…These comments were made at Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport on 10 May, just before flying off to Moscow with a group of Italian businessmen (and one very attractive businesswoman) and signing a Russo-Italian Friendship Pact.
On 11 May the new People’s Party government in Romania made mass arrests of old politicians on corruption charges. In parallel with the new Socialist government in Moldova, it stated that it wished to join the Eurasian Union (Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Hungary, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia had already joined on 8 May) and were leaving the EU and expelling all US nationals. It is expected that Romania and Moldova will declare political and economic union on a federal basis. Bulgaria followed suit 48 hours later, demanding that all US nationals leave by the end of the month.
On 14 May the Baltic States and Poland hurriedly passed new laws granting human rights to their Russian minorities and all four countries have stated that they are leaving NATO and demilitarising with immediate effect.
In the UK
The radical Socialist Momentum Party government which came to power on 2 May after its landslide win at the UK Parliamentary Election has launched a wave of ‘deprivatisations’, and allowed the toppling of the statue of Mrs Thatcher in London with the help of a tank. It has also confiscated all assets of British oligarchs, leaving no-one with more than £25 million. Readers will recall that the Election had been called as a result of the exposure of massive corruption scandals among ministers of the former government which collapsed on 14 March after a ten-day General Strike, in which the Police also took part. Readers will remember how furious strikers sacked the BBC building in London on 13 March after their cause had been ‘misrepresented’ by BBC journalists, chanting, ‘Down with BBC liars’.
Yesterday, on 14 May, English Independence was declared by the Momentum government, after Scotland and Wales had made Unilateral Declarations of Independence and Northern Ireland reunited with the Republic of Ireland, but as a self-governing province.
From his English-style villa in the hill station at Shimla, ex-Prime Minister Sunak, dressed in Indian clothing, spoke warmly of the future of banking in India. As regards the former UK, he said that there was nothing more he could do and that the situation was out of control. No comments have been received from ex-Prime Minister Truss so far. She now lives in Dallas where, thanks to her unique intellectual abilities, she works in a tiny office at a schoolbook depository and is writing a geography textbook for pre-schoolers. As for ex-Prime Minister Johnson, he is still gravely ill in hospital in Kingston, Jamaica, with alcohol poisoning. This follows the ‘Churchill challenge’ at his villa, where he tried to imitate his idol, Winston Churchill, by drinking three bottles of whisky a day for ten days running.
In the USA
However, it is today’s events in Washington which have really shaken the old Western world. Huge and angry American nationalist crowds at the Capitol, numbering at least two million and led by ex-President Trump are threatening to take over the administration unless elections are called immediately. The National Guard is powerless against such immense numbers and apparently guardsmen have refused to use tear gas against the crowds. Some guardsmen have even been seen switching sides and joining the protestors.
The crowds are carrying placards with slogans like: ‘Food and Justice’, ‘Arrest the Oligarchs’, ‘Give us Free Medicine’, ‘America First’, ‘Isolation for the Nation’, ‘Down with CNN’ and chanting their favourite ‘Drain the Swamp’ slogan. At 2.45 this afternoon ex-President Trump stood up and announced: ‘Yuh stole the election. OK, Swamp, you had yuh chance to cut a deal. And you didn’t wanna. Well, now we’re gonna come and drain yuh! Good job!’ He was greeted with millions of shouts of approval and chants like, ‘Go for it’ and ‘USA, USA, USA’, as crowds surged forward towards the Capitol. We await imminent developments.
Meanwhile, President Biden, who is still in his bunker at Camp David knows nothing of all this, as he sank into a coma brought on when he viewed the victorious Kiev Peace Parade on 5 May. Ironically, he who was nicknamed ‘Sleepy Joe’ was yesterday administered a large dose of morphine and is said to have had a ‘comfortable night’. Vice-President Harris has not been seen for 72 hours and rumours are rife as to her whereabouts. No-one seems to be in charge.
We have just heard from London, England, that King Charles III has abdicated, under pressure from the Socialist Momentum Party. It has called for a ‘People’s Monarch’ who is of English and not German blood. Crowds that gathered in Trafalgar Square at 3.00 Washington time (8.00 pm London time) have been heard calling for a ‘People’s Monarchy’ and chanting the names of various celebrities, ‘X for King’, ‘Y for Queen’ etc. Further developments are expected shortly.
We have received reports from Reuters that large numbers of Chinese troops and parachutists have landed on Taiwan where they have been greeted as liberators. These reports have yet to be confirmed.
17 February 2023
What an excellent thought-provoking and entertaining read, Batiushka!
As you illustrate, there is an absolute myriad of possibilities and I am sure at least some of the scenarios you mention will come to pass.
The single certainty in all of this giant mess is the demise of the western-based hegemon.
Sadly we can only guess at the scale of damage that will result before the final clean-up can begin in earnest.
Will miss you Batiushka
Love it Batiushka, though I have a feeling Bakhmut will fall by the end of tbis February.
Please let us know where we can read more of your insightful posts one this blog has closed.
Kia kaha, TEP
Военкор Александр Коц: без второй волны мобилизации в том или ином виде России обойтись точно не удастся. Так я вижу ситуацию сейчас: ведь на любой наш призыв, на любую нашу мобилизацию противник отвечает своей мобилизацией. Я сторонник того, чтобы в СВО принимали участие даже военнослужащие срочной службы. Я не очень понимаю, почему их не задействуют.
btw why Medvedchuk?
Voenkor Alexander Kots: Russia will definitely not be able to do without a second wave of mobilization in one form or another. This is how I see the situation now: after all, the enemy responds to any of our calls, to any of our mobilizations with his own mobilization. I am a supporter of even conscripts taking part in the SVO. I don’t really understand why they don’t work.
btw why Medvedchuk?
Not that I disagree with much, but somebody always wants to be in charge and that’s an awful lot to do in just a year, how about 3-5 years and by then most of the culprits are dead.
500 year old western abscesses!! Exactly how I would describe it.
Rishi Sunaks grandfather moved from India to Africa 100+ years back. Even his father wasn’t born in India.
People don’t realise that even in 20 years almost all immigrants from India are no longer fit to live in India.
Also Shimla is just another small( by indian standards. ) town, dirty, immensely overcrowded. Roads leading to it have bumper to bumper traffic. There are no more idyllic villas left in Shimla.
Also the public imagination, politics etc are vastly overcrowded. Rishi sunak would be fit to be a peon in India.
Now that is an alternative historical outcome that I would love to see, stellar work Batiushka!
Everyone needs a dream, we can but hope. However, please let me add my own rider: “Wales” has been formally registered by it’s own language name and how it is know to it’s people, as Cymru. The name “Wales” has been banned, as has anyone proclaiming themselves a Prince or Princess of the land. The English and other migrants of Cardiff have been banned from being allowed to take any seat in the Government, or any position of power, any mayor of any town, such positions can only be held by those born in Cymru of Cymru parentage, and all formal proceedings will in future be in the native language, of Cymraeg. There, that’s my pennyworth :-)
A beautiful dream…God bless Russia!
Very entertaining article. However, much wishful thinking is involved. That Germany, Italy and France will turn a new leaf is unlikely as their balls are tied to the strings of the US which will drag them into a final world war. That the Polish and Baltic states will turn a new leaf is fanciful – they will instead double down and find alternative means of justifying their existence as Russophobic states, most likely joining a coalition of the willing with the US against Russia and China. That the UK would elect a socialist Momentum Party is an incredibly over-the-top fantasy. But most unrealistic is the idea that the USA will simply slink away into its own without unleashing horrid destruction on the world. The more likely scenario would be the insane rulers of the US initiating a final clash with Russia and China to distract from the embarrassment and ultimate humiliation of a Ukrainian defeat.
But it’s pleasant to dream occasionally. Batiushka does a splendid job of it!
‘That the UK would elect a socialist Momentum Party is an incredibly over-the-top fantasy’.
I’m no longer directly involved in UK politics because the entire political system is a pantomime, so in this sense it is a fantasy to imagine that a genuinely left wing political party could be elected, as the aristocracy will not permit it. There is no functioning democracy, but if there were, a socialist party could very easily be elected. I helped set up the original Momentum, and my experience on the doorstep was that eighty percent of the populace supports a progressive socialist programme, including to my surprise some enlightened oligarchs.
Lovely vision. A good part of it is on the verge of being realized — if not ne xt year, then sooner than we might think.
“The new French government led by Marine Le Pen declared that France was leaving NATO and the EU.”
for the French I am, this part alone make me think this paper is not serious.
Expectations on Marine Le Pen are as reliable as those one used to have on Italian Meloni … Once she is in power (and it’s probable that one day she will), she will just turn into a lazy queen organizing the corruption to fit her interest. Not more.
That’s the real issue with the entire paper: All the political leaders in EU has been formed by and paid for by the US – from hard left to hard right. There is simply no one that can imagine a future independant from US. there will be many regime change in EU, but the political class of the “new EU” is yet to be formed. It’ll take a generation – at least.
Absolutely beautiful narrative, Batiushka! Perhaps a bit optimistic in it’s time-frame; but who knows, even in that, once Bakhmut falls? I look forward to watching this hope-filled scenario unfold in reality.
As a USuk-imperialised Celt, of Cymreig and Éireann heritage I particularly love your fore-seeings for the Celtic nations of The Isles. Very many thanks!
It would be worth archiving this article & placing some kind of sweep stake on how much of this actually comes to pass, because as far fetched & definitely amusing as some of it is (Boris Johnson’s alcohol poisoning, I love it), it would not suprise me if events actually unfolded somewhat close to the scenario presented. It is actually very difficult to imagine what will happen when the US stranglehold over the entire world is removed, when the military bases are gone, when the US dollar is just a memory, what will the world do with its new found freedom(s)? I would hope for radical change in a positive direction, the fair world order Lavrov talks about – & if Russia does emerge from this as a leading world power, I believe it will happen. At the same time, we may just get more of the same, the US gone but a system not much different from the Washington Consensus corporate tyranny but now being run by BRICS & large Russian, Chinese, Indian & Brazillian conglomerates. While I doubt it, one should not be naive, we should not expect the best just because that is what we hope for. People will have to fight for a better world, with the hegemon gone, that in a sense, will be the beginning of the struggle for a truly human world that so many of us yearn for.
“This had followed the mass violent street demonstrations against all things American in various German cities, especially in the east, which had forced Chancellor Scholz into hiding in a bunker somewhere in Berlin.”
That cracked me. The Foreign Minister two days ago just so announced “more Bunkers für Berlin”, haha! Where will we read ‘Batiushka’ once the Saker Blog is wrapped up and stamped for journey into Google oblivion (foreclosure is Feb 27th, if I recall correctly)? So sad. Best, still!
Made my day !
Thank you for the comments. Of course the paper is fanciful and most of it may well never happen. But that is the aim, to get readers thinking about the hundreds of scenarios. There is only one thing that is certain – that the world will not go on as it has been., Nothing will ever be the same again.
What some people still don’t understand is,Russia HAS to win in Ukraine because the very survival of the Russian Federation is at stake if they don’t,its that simple or become a plundered Vassal of the Reich,also from the information i have seen not sure Russia has deployed its airforce to its full extent,otherwise they could annihilate ground forces from the air,not sure the state of Ukrainian air defences but surely they would be one of the first targets to be taken out.
The 23 million people of Taiwan want to have nothing to do with the criminals in Beijing.
Yet, these criminals are threatening with death and destruction the ordinary Taiwanese people. Russia does not wish to resurrect its Empire. Why does China want to do it? Hubris? I see no difference between the criminal West, and criminal China. They are exactly the same. Unfortunately for the world, one evil hegemon will be replaced by another one.
“I see no difference between the criminal West, and criminal China.”
I doubt that many on this site would agree with your post –I certainly don’t ! Never have I read that China is threatening “Tawanese people” with “Death & Distruction” – what a load of crap you talk. It’s the Yanks that re stirring things up & IF you’re not aware enough about that it would be amazing. So what’s the real beef ?
The PRC is a nightmare totalitarian dystopia, but it has some good points, such as having lifted countless millions out of poverty, and having a sensible economic system. Inflicting genocide on the Tibetans and organ harvesting the Falun Gong yoga practitioners are unforgivable in my opinion, but my own ‘beef’ in relation to Taiwan is that PRC overlordship would destroy one of the few remaining fragments of traditional Chinese culture, replacing it with the fake, plastic Communist version that prevails on the mainland.
Yet ‘criminal’ China is Taiwan’s biggest export market. You can’t have your cake and eat it buddy, while pretending to have higher moral principles. Your hypocrisy is nauseating.
Hopefully it will be so, or seriously in that direction, at least? We shall see, soon enough I guess? Interesting article indeed.
What a priceless dream. Let’s dream, and reality will manifest!
I bet Stumpy that the US would run from Germany, from Ramstein, just as they did from Afnamistan, at midnight…
But I liked the bit with the Leopards…
Seriously, the delusionals will probably add lots more violence, but the general way of History will probably go as the story…
It’s interesting to consider the size of tents…as in “democracy” is a big tent. The Soviet system is a form of democracy, for example, as is the similar “republican” form.
“Capitalism” is also a big tent, so big that we tend to conflate it with piracy…plunder pretending to be productive.
And Imperialism (a form of piracy) is seen as in the tent of Empire – it isn’t. Empires many be many things, but they rely on cooperation and production and justice > totally incomparable with Imperialism.
Speaking of the delusionals and their violence, this next week bodes to witness, I think, a dog-leg of inflection in re the SMO et sec… Bluntly, something’s up big-time…
Thanks for good fiction! True fiction.
“Yet in 1814 Russian troops occupied Paris […]”
i must admit, i didnt even know this. very interesting! what is even more interesting is that i cannot find the date the russians left paris again.
does anyone of you know or manage to obtain this piece of information?
when did the russians leave paris again? how long was it occupied?
“Bystro, bystro!” “Bistro” comes to the French from the occupation of Paris… Meaning in Rus = “quickly”, so I have read. (all, kindly correct this if in error!)
In this sense, they have not yet left Paris…
And to remember, they may return in force. Anytime they decide.
Batiushka…your vision/dream is same as many,many of us who are so tired /fed up/disgust with current state of Brandon regime….will fall of Bakhmut..start bright beginning of NEW WORLD ??I believe it will…
Serbs wouldn’t agree being with Croats in the same state.
It is not smart to allow Ukrainians to concentrate again in The New Ukraine. Let them live all around the Russian world, but not concentrated. Only Galitians may be given to Poland, ‘cos they love each other.
Why should Moldova be returned to Romania? It was confiscated as war reparations for the Second World War, and that damage did not pass.
Baltic republics should be included back into Russian world.
The globalists will not rest until the USA is divided into many small states, which are at odds with each other. This can perhaps be solved by dividing them into zones of interest: Russia, China, Japan, England, France, Germany, but according to a chess arrangement.
Do not forget that Japan is also an occupied territory.
Paris was liberated by, among others, Russian troops in 1814. Their job done, they left soon afterwards.
The most seditious alternative to the present British monarchy is actually another German, the London born Prince Joseph Wenzel of Liechtenstein, who is the Jacobite heir.
In my opinion global geopolitics will take second place in the future to climate change. Mega storms and unprecedented extreme weather events will come to dominate the news, starting with East Asia and South-East Asia. So I believe that Taiwan will in fact never be taken over, and will instead become a non-issue, because mainland China will have more urgent concerns.
Even a non-Brit such as myself has to admit that England and its various satrapies have been in the hands of functional Satanists since 1688.
They called it the Glorious Revolution, of course… because it was neither a revolution, nor ‘glorious’.
I’ll add my name to the list of those who want to read more from Batiushka, somehow, somewhere….
You are quite correct August. In Scotland we still remember the Royal House of Stuart, ‘the king over the water’ (in Liechtenstein lol). Another Scottish Jacobite toast, which has a number of versions, is… ‘Here’s tae us, few’re like us, and they’re ‘a deid’…(here’s to us, few of us that there are, because they’re all dead :-)
Russia is a Christian nation. But when they were run by godless communists, it was only a war of words and occasional peace treaties. Now that they have returned to their Orthodox roots, nothing less than destruction and dismemberment will do for the West. This tells me that the American deep state cannot abide a rival Christian power that doesn’t dance to their tune. China is atheist and all we have with them is insults and comedy over balloons. A real Christian would welcome other Christians. What is behind this curious attitude from the West?
This madness will not stop until the USA is brought to its knees, militarily and economically, along with its vassals, the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Only then the World will be a better place to live. Until then, there will be silent suffering!
Brilliant and hilarious.
The bit about Liz Truss is priceless…
I await these outcomes with anticipation.
A comfortable mixture of reality, desires and delirium. At heart, the magical realism of the Latin American literary boom of the 1960s and 1970s was something similar: a reality so violently inconceivable that a dreamlike exit can sound more realistic than a perspective closer to reality.
Only times do not seem to have accelerated as much as the author wishes. Rather, it is a future measurable in decades (look at the Peru of Manuel Scorza’s novel “Garabombo the Invisible”: it has taken half a century for Garabombo to be seen).
I do not share the author’s hopes for “small country” nationalism in Western and Central Europe. I rather believe that in the long run it will be the workers who will pull the old plunderer out of the disaster to which its bourgeoisies have led it, and not the petty-bourgeois formations with nostalgia for an unrepeatable past. Happily unrepeatable, I add.
The same goes for the United States.
But my only really important comment is: the analyst has not taken Latin America or Africa into account. Perhaps this is due to ignorance. But one could imagine a very precise future at least for Latin America in the event that the collapse of the Imperialist states of Western Eurasia and the northernmost and basically Anglo-Saxon region of the American continent is real.
There is a nice Ray Bradbury story from the 1950s about an American couple trapped by nuclear war in their car in the middle of the Central American jungle. My impression is that from Mexico to the Hoces Pass (better known as Drake’s) that drama is going to be played out on a scale unimaginable as yet.
And it will not be peaceful.
This has been translated automatically with the DeepL on line translator (free version). Cannot but ask for good will against eventual clumsiness.
When Collective Biden (CB) chose to withdraw from Afghanistan
the Pentagon/CIA tricked CB and intentionally created a disaster
of a withdraw.
They have done it again with the Nordstream bombing.
Collective Biden had signed off to put in place the explosive charges
but not to set them off unless certain circumstances arose.
The Pentagon/CIA went ahead and blew the pipelines when it suited *them*.
They had him, Collective Biden, he had signed off on it.
The Pentagon/CIA could claim unknown factors had accidentally tripped the explosive charges.
How was CB going to dispute that?
Have seen this tactic before. Obama fell for it days after his return from accepting his Nobel Peace Prize.
Obama signed off on taking out a single militant in Yemen. The militant wasn’t part of any officially and legally recognized terrorist group (yet, that designation would come after the fact). The Pentagon used cruise missiles loaded with cluster bombs to take out a single militant. Dozens of civilians were killed, women and children, and the original target was untouched (if he was even there). A large cover up ensued, with the Pentagon protecting Peace Prize winning Obama’s secret. Obama was beholden to them to keep his secret. Peace Prize winning Obama was then owned by those that kept his secret.
Leak to ABC:
Was it a Pentagon sourced leak or did the White House brag before it fully realized the crime?
ABC went silent after this broadcast.
Amnesty corroborates crime and cover-up.
Wikileaks cable showing cover-up:
Hillary Clinton, by the way, committed her own act of cover up.
Covering her butt by backdating a memo (an act of fraud – *Federal* fraud).
The designation of a organization as a FTO (Foreign Terrorist Organization)
is not official nor legal until it is published in the Federal Register.
An oversight? Obama attacked Yemen before Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
had done the paperwork to make the killing legal.
The designation was not published until a month later, January 19, 2010.
Hillary Clinton back dated the memo she published in the Register with the date of
December 14, 2009, to somewhat cover her butt. Back dating is an act of fraud.
“Obama killed militants”. But his definition of militant is…
“It in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent,”
One more for Obama.
Obama still speaks of “Hope”, as in his campaign motto: “Hope and Change”.
But do you know how he defines Hope?
Obama’s acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, December 10, 2009
ended with these words:
“Somewhere today, a mother facing punishing poverty
still takes the time to teach her child, scrapes together what
few coins she has to send that child to school — because she
believes that a cruel world still has a place for that child’s
Let us live by their example. We can acknowledge that oppression will
always be with us, and still strive for justice. We can admit the
intractability of deprivation, and still strive for dignity. Clear-eyed,
we can understand that there will be war, and still strive for peace.
We can do that — for that is the story of human progress; that’s the
of all the world; and at this moment of challenge,
that must be our work here on Earth.
Thank you very much.
Hope is a dream for children.
“believe a cruel world still has a place for a child’s dreams.”
“we can acknowledge that oppression will always be with us”
“We can admit the intractability of deprivation”
“Clear-eyed, we can understand that there will be war”
What demonic muse followed Obama and inspired his words?
One can easily picture the Nobel Prize audience of monkey suited bobbleheads
smiling and nodding at the decorous concierge for empire
as they listened to him beguile and charm.
ps. Seven days after delivering this speech Obama ordered the use of cluster bombs
delivered by cruise missile
