On September 1st, the scary Antifa groups and the Black Blocs that burned American flags, toppled monuments, screamed and beat other crisis actors with long sticks, all had vanished without a trace. Went back to school, most likely.
They did good. They gave the left a bad name and a black eye. I spoke to an old pal of mine, who is the head of some local republican organization, and he said that they are getting many members, all former democrats. I suspect that’s being a typical picture around the country, all thanks to sweat, blood and other bodily fluids of students hired for $25 per hour summer gig.
The Chinese are not known for standing up for their own interests, let alone their geopolitical interests.
The political theater staged by Washington around the North Korea is to pressure China to quickly cave in, to give up Kim Jong-un and his people, and the territory for an advancement of NATO right up to China’s and Russia’s borders.
For some time it looked like they decided to surrender, and to sit it out quietly pretending that nothing happened and to wait for Russia to fight this battle alone.
It’s not going to happen. It looks like Russia will drag them into this battle.
Here is why.
The US is halfway through to block China’s main trade routes by its proxy war in Yemen, by increasing its presence and intensifying war in Afghanistan, and by the current attempt of a color revolution in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
Just by looking at the map, you can see that China’s shortest route to the Indian Ocean is via Myanmar. Currently, the country has pro-Chinese government, but the situation can change.
Considering the current tensions with India, a proud US ally as we recently have learned, more tensions, a trade war and even a real burning crescent around China, from its border with Afghanistan, to Myanmar and North Korea, to Vietnam, Philippines and Japan that are hostile to China, as the US “experts” say.
In a curious interview to the InfoWars the Fox News contributor Anthony Shaffer said a couple of interesting things outlining the “lay of the land” from the point of view of the American military and intelligence.
What people working for the deep state call “analyses” are, in fact, their plans.
That’s why it’s easy to understand and even “predict” what they will do next.
Case in point this interview with Shaffer who claims to be an insider in Pentagon and goes on bragging about some interesting planning by a few delusional minds.
You don’t have to listen to it. Here is its summary.
The US have been working with the Chinese, telling them that a war would be terrible, and that it’s China that would be suffering the most.
China, despite having large population, has a very fragile economy, and they have to get everything through the South China sea route.
The Chinese only have got two week food supply.
The Vietnamese and the Filipinos don’t like China.
It wouldn’t be necessarily for the Americans to take shots at the Chinese. If the war starts in North Korea, other countries will do these job of attacking China.
It’s not just about South and North Koreas, but all the things in the Pacific.
India is now a competitor against China. Indians moved on and don’t care about Pakistan, so much.
Trump is wise to play an Indian card, and it’s goes both ways.
Playing an Indian card goes also in Afghanistan.
Taliban is not an entity, they are an outgrow of the Pakistani intelligence services.
We need to talk to Pakistan directly to solve this.
Trump is going to held Pakistan accountable for this duplicity.
Afghanistan is essentially seven different sub-countries. Each one of those sub-countries run by a warlord. We are taking to them.
We don’t care about the central government in Afghanistan. It’s not our job to worry about other countries. It’s not our job to push the Afghan people to be loyal to the central government.
We are taking a regional approach.
“We are the most badass tribe on the planet. If you do something against us, we will come and kill you.” Anthony Shaffer
The Chinese have two copper mines in Afghanistan, There are all kinds of natural resources there.
About how bad a color revolution would be for the US, and why it’s only good for all the other countries.
“All the history shows that a group that does the overthrow of a government get instantly removed by the next group, creating a power vacuum battle that implodes an economy. Our enemies would take advantage of it. Wars would probably start. This is a disaster. These people (who wants to topple Trump) are crazy.
There is a great cold war movie, Seven Days in May. One of the things said in this movie is that the moment you remove the president that’s when the enemies are going to jump in. And if you reality want to help the Russians, you would get involved in a coup against the president. Enemies all across the board do things to undermine and attack us. If they try to fire nukes, it would be when we most weakened during the coup d’état. If the liberals reality want to see the country destroyed, they would move down that path.”
So, the US intents to work with the different warlords to split Afghanistan into seven different sub-countries, and to bypath the government that wants Russia’s military and political help and China’s investments.
The US is pressing China and claiming that they are all alone in the world, and have only two week supply of food, if the US closes the South China Sea trade routes. The US has deployed THAAD launchers in South Korea targeting China and Russia. And, simultaneously, 3,500 US troops headed to Afghanistan – report
Of course the US doesn’t ignore Russia and its trade routes to Europe by dry land and via the North Sea route. And that’s why the US has been blocking Russia’s western borders with the sanctions, NATO troops, wild Ukro- Nazis, and Polo-Lithuanian Russia-haters.
Now, let’s move from the crazy American world of war and death to the real world of cooperation, trade, and development.
“Putin’s – and Xi’s – concept of multilateral order is clearly visible in the wide-ranging Xiamen Declaration, which proposes an “Afghan-led and Afghan-owned” peace and national reconciliation process, “including the Moscow Format of consultations” and the “Heart of Asia-Istanbul process”.
That’s code for an all-Asian (and not Western) Afghan solution brokered by the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), led by RC, and of which Afghanistan is an observer and future full member.”
Within an extended framework of the BRICS summit, President Putin met with presidents of Egypt, Tajikistan, Mexico and Guinea and the prime minister of Thailand.
The leaders of five developing countries and states with developing economies took part in this work and not just neighbors of the chair country in the region, as was the case before
The meeting’s agenda was regarding stable development until 2030, as well as extension of partnership for development purposes. The Xiamen declaration adopted was by the group.
The Russian president went to Vladivostok where he took part in the Eastern Economic Forum on September 6-7.
Qatar gambit failed, Doha closer to Iran than ever as gas OPEC in the works. Petrodollar dead and any hope of KSA regime survival rests with pivoting to the petroyuan.

At the same time…
A Chinese air-defense battalion and surface-to-air missile brigade carried out a live-fire exercise near Bohai Bay in east China, an official website of the Chinese military reported.
The simulated battle drills near the Korean Peninsula were aimed at warding off a “surprise attack” from overseas, the military said.
According to the head of the press service of the Southern Military District, Colonel Vadim Astafiev, the large-scale military exercises started in the North Caucasus. “The units of the missile forces and artillery of the 58th Army …
August 2017, the Russian-Mongolian joint military exercise is for the first time was held in the harsh weather conditions of the Gobi Desert
Over 2,000 troops from six member states of the post-Soviet Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) took part in air defense drills
The drills of the CIS united air defense system dubbed Combat Commonwealth-2017 were held at the Ashuluk training range in the Astrakhan Region in south Russia on September 4-8. Apart from Russia, the Combat Commonwealth-2017 joint drills involved air defense units from the armed forces of five CIS members: Belarus, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia. The other participants in the CIS united air defense system took part in the drills as observers.
Russia and Belarus have placed their air defense forces on joint combat duty,
On August 28th, 2017 NATO declared to be in full combat readiness of all four of its international battlegroups located on Russia’s border.
Or, the way Jane’s puts it, NATO declared its enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) battlegroups in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland fully operational on 28 August.
“The announcement follows the declaration of the Canadian-led eFP battlegroup as “fully interoperable and combat effective” after the completion of its certification exercise (CERTEX) held at Camp Ādaži, Latvia, on 21–27 August.
This was the first exercise involving all the national contingents of the battlegroup, which additionally include Albania, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, and Spain.
The Canadian-led battlegroup is the fourth to complete its CERTEX, following the battlegroups led by Germany in Lithuania, the US in Poland, and the UK in Estonia.”
So, European hyenas are getting ready to pounce at us, once again. I think, we all know that this time will be last one for Europe. I predict that it all will end up with six feet radioactive glass dome covering the European peninsula. In the future people will travel there for extreme tourism, to look on pale demons trapped in glass like bugs in amber.
Maybe they don’t tell us everything about radioactivity. Like, for example, how in Japan people keep living seemingly forever, or how wild animals have returned and thrive in the Chernobyl zone. There is also my personal experience with radioactivity that left me with somewhat puzzling results. I don’t want to say that it turned me into a superman… I don’t quite know how to approach this subject, yet.
Director of Research and Development
author of The enemy of the State
In case you have forgotten what happened in Ukraine, this book should refresh your memory with the incredibly precise and humorous chronicles: ANTHOLOGY OF RUSSIAN HUMOR: FROM MAIDAN TO TRUMP
This I think confirms the speculation that israel’s trump regime intends to make things worse in the Ukraine, rather than better.
US wants ‘broad mandate’ for UN peacekeeping mission in Ukraine
“Washington supports the idea of placing a UN peacekeeping mission in Ukraine to protect OSCE representatives who are monitoring the implementation of Minsk agreement, but only if the Blue Helmets also patrol the Russian-Ukrainian border.
The US, which is neither part of the Normandy Four nor a signatory to the Minsk agreement, has proposed an amendment to deploy UN forces, suggesting that its mandate should stretch all the way up to Russia’s borders.
“Any such force should have a broad mandate for peace and security throughout the occupied territory of Ukraine up to and including the border with Russia in order to avoid deepening or institutionalizing the divisions inside Ukraine,” Nauert said.”
No- this confirms Putin’s laughable plans for ‘peacekeepers’ in Ukraine is never going to happen. America, without breaking a sweat, uses International Law to sabotage Putin by stating that said peacekeeprs will be used to ***end*** Novorussia and complete the conquest of Ukarine for NATO. Putin was so thick he didn’t see this coming.
What excuse can Putin use for rejecting the ‘peacekeepers on the Ukraine-Russia border’ proposal. We here know this must never be allowed- but Ukraine is a ‘sovereign’ nation under International Law- the same law that allows Russia to operate in Syria at Assad’s behest.
Most foreign American Military Bases are not present under international law, but force of arms. Empire powers only follow the ‘law’ when it suits them. Putin should have rolled into Ukraine and partitioned the nation- no other solution can possibly work for Russia. When an Empire power acts weakly on its essential borders, it loses respect across the planet.
Putin has ***temporary*** success in Syria- but immediately prior to WW2 and WW2, many powers had similar ***temporary*** successes that the coming wars soon overturned.
Closer to home and Putin really needs to ‘crack the whip’ so bordering states don’t go ‘all NATO’ on Russia’s backside, and keep themselves respectfully neutral. Poland’s blatant anti-Russia acts at this time should have us all very concerned for where goes Poland, all the other ‘dogs’ will follow.
“What excuse can Putin use for rejecting the ‘peacekeepers on the Ukraine-Russia border’ proposal.”(?)
The same non-excuse that Nutanyahoo will use when the Russian/UN peacekeepers set up in the disputed Golan Heights with a couoke of S-400 to keep the peace (between Iran and …) — i.e. any excuse he likes, it ain’t gonna happen any time soon.
The excuse is not russian, but novorussian.
The have an answer and the answer is: you don´t settle down here, no matter the color of your helmets.
And thye DPR LPR citizens prefer to die fighting Ukie nazis than surrender to and endless ”UN up to russian borders” scheme. A scheme that would last for 30 years.
And remember that the option of letting anyone overrunning the Donbass is absolutely non existent to Putin and to any, ANY one of his possible successors.
It is that simple.
Boy. You do not know what matla-patla your thinking is. There is a zero chance that the us can win a conventional war with russia and/or china. Only in your wet dreams. Let them try and you will finally understand how miserable your life without hamburgers and cola would be even back home in the us or europe or japan or anywhere. If you by any chance knew, what would be waiting for you, you would think differently… Thank the leadership of russia and china, tha tyou have not already been deprived of the possibillty to comment here…
There will be no-one to server the burgers, besides the fact that there will be no cows to provide them. O well maybe an occasional “rata” just like in “demolition man” only worse?
Regarding Turkish S-400 deal there is a possibility of sabotage.
Someone from PVO Kontsern accepted a deposit for a purchase of S-400 only to be rejected by Putin.
That way Erdogan will get angry, and Russo-Turkish relation will deteriorate.
Turkey is still a NATO member, a sale of S-400 make no sense.
Sounds like nonsense to me. Did you make that up, or is their a source for those claims of yours?
It’s my nonsense. ( I hope you’re right ).
It came to my mind as I find hard to justify this deal.
Turkey is not just NATO member, they host İncirlik Air Base.
It could make sense after “NATOxit”, but before, what assurances Erdogan can give – none.
Ignoring the Gulanist / US coup attempt and the resulting rift, I imagine it is pretty obvious to the Turks that the US/PKK partnership in N. Syria is not only about US power projection over Syria. Not only are the PKK sworn enemies of Erdouan, but US missiles parked in N Syria point in all directions.
Every ‘ally’ of the US, every ‘special relationship’ ends up with missile bases planted all over the ally’s territory, always on the pretext that they are pointing at the existential threat ‘over there’. They actually point at the head of state. Ally = bases = vassal. Turkey have got the message, now. Hence non-US controlled/manufactured/programmed and trained counter measures.
He just survived a NATO sponsored coup. I can’t think of anyone in the world who would want an independent way to shoot down NATO planes more. How does that not make sense? Or do you think NATO won’t just shut down Turkey’s air defense whenever they feel the need.
I can’t think of anyone in the world who would want an independent way to shoot down NATO planes more
Wouldn’t Erdogan be better off by withdrawing from NATO alliance, rather than shooting down NATO plane.
Given the history of the area it is very likely that the act of withdrawing from NATO will precipitate a multilevel attack with the goal of making Turkey look like some of its neighbors.
For instance Kurds could be used to start a civil war that becomes the excuse the US needs to wreck the place. Independent air defense would at least make the new no fly zone more difficult to implement.
Much safer to remain within NATO while defying it…NATO countries can’t go to war with each other – not THAT is chess!
That’s what De Gaulle did when they instigated a coup against him….
I suggest looking at Cyprus in 1975. USofA plaid some nasty defense equipment (radars, etc. ) disabling in Greece, while supporting Turkey in taking 30% of Cyprus’s territory, which is still occupied.
“Turkey is still a NATO member, a sale of S-400 make no sense.” —
Sure does, diversification lowers risk.
Turkey did some deals with China as well if my memory is correct.
You can be relatively certain that US/Nato ‘export’ equipment will not target US/Nato planes; and more than likely the export versions of Russian or Chinese equipment will somehow not ‘lock on’ native equipment without the ‘code’ … so Turkey has increased its cross-options –aka US/Nato for Russian and Chinese; and Russian/Chinese for US/Nato (and perhaps each other’s equipemt, hypothetically).
“The Chinese are not known for standing up for their own interests, let alone their geopolitical interests.”
That’s simply not true. Just recently India had to back down in the Doklam Plateau faceoff. Why is China building these islands in the South China Sea? Or a naval base in Djibouti? Why the cooperation with Russia?
The title of this article says it all.
The Ukrainian peacekeeper issue is important but a mere sideshow compared to what is going on there.
” Do not underestimate the importance of the news of the construction by the Americans of the naval base in Ochakov. In the long term the US plans to turn all of the Black Sea coast of Ukraine into a base”
and right next door –
The US Naval Facilities Engineering Command Europe Africa Southwest Asia (NAVFAC EURAFSWA) plans to construct eight training facilities for military operations in urban terrain at the Bulboaca training base in Moldova. The fact that the US Navy Department is involved makes believe the facility will host American Marines.
But let’s insult Kim of North Korea. That requires a lot less brain work than examining the facts of his having no choices. Meanwhile almost unreported the US is arming up Japan and Korea and other countries to do the dirty work and take down China.
And while we are focussed on the Consular outrages in San Francisco the US, the UK, the whole of NATO, Israel, Canada and Australia anda horde of puppet states are rapidly getting to a point where they can attack Russia directly and start a war within Russia. Not nuclear more like . . Syria!
They never stop planning for this. They are nearly ready.
Russia’s collaboration with the US at the UNSC, it’s continuing to call the enemy ” partners” and it’s generally submissive stance to western hostility (of which there are many examples) all of which combined with the fatal delusion that diplomacy will one day achieve results with the US – are a flashing “go for it” sign to the Zionists that Russia and China are both frightened and weak and that is exactly what they are doing and doubling up their efforts to achieve their goal the destruction of the Russian Federation.
Look at the Tass example at the foot of this post.
Vladimir Putin is a brilliant man and admired by his people. Can anyone name 10 Russian politicians who support his policies and vocalise in the media on Russia’s behalf. (Peskov and Zakharova are employees not politicians)
Didn’t the Saker himself say in a recent audio words to the effect that Putin is great but he’s the only one who is and the 5th column are just waiting to pounce?
And they have the military of 40 countries getting ever closer to both Beijing and Moscow.
Last point. When you see articles like this –
“Russian Defense Ministry confident relations with NATO will be restored”
– you are forced to ask
is this fifth column subversion?
Is it just sheer and total stupidity?
Is it naïve wishful thinking?
Is this guy even capable of defending Russia’s interests?
Is he even living in the real world?
No, there won’t be global nuclear war. Russia has half surrendered already.
Make you want to scream?. No – weep.
Hopefully Putin Cult ( like in N.Korea ) will see daylight just for a week to purge filthy traitors.
Russian Liberals Are the Children of Communist Elites –
A Purge is a Must to come.
How does an alligator snapping turtle catch fish?
Re: ” Do not underestimate the importance of the news of the construction by the Americans of the naval base in Ochakov. In the long term the US plans to turn all of the Black Sea coast of Ukraine into a base”
What would happen to these bases if, Ukraine collapses?
Good points, very understandable.
But let me express some side thoughts.
My guess is, that the Russians (also the Chinese) are simply buying time. They know damn well that the anglozionists are vulturing to throw them into serfdom and looting their resources. It’s a prelude to a colonial war of 1-2 centuries ago.
In the meantime, Russia and China are gearing up their military capabilities in high speed. It will take a few years until they will catch up so widely with the US military that we have a MAD again.
(I’m not a military analist, I’ll leave that to the Saker, it’s just my general impression. If I’m wrong, I’ll bow my head.)
In the meantime they are just as well distracting from the real points.
My guess is, that there are several streams going on in Washington DC.
One is still believing in ‘nuclear primacy’, wanting to ‘bomb them into the stone age’. Think John McInsane and other minions.
There is also one, more calculated, thinking ‘we have to siege them as soon as possible before we cannot do that anymore’.
I think the Russians and Chinese are very aware of this. However, they also have a long term strategy. Of the Russians, is was forged by Sergey Glaziev (an advisor of Putin).
They want to implode the petrodollar. And they are steadily underway. Without the petrodollar, the USA will collapse.
Of course a lot of yelling is done (I will leave out cheer girl Nikki Haley for now). E.g.the DPRK is ‘evil and a mortal danger’ (well, ok, the country is not nice.), and the further hyena-like surrounding of RC by the US is ongoing.
The last hilarious MSM darling is the Rohingya ‘disaster’ in Myanmar, so close to China (oh well, the Yemen genocide by the medieval state of KSA is forgotten conveniently, also the use of forbidden fosfor bombs, delivered so delightly by the UK, they even admitted it, but the money was so sweet).
Just read the excellenty article on Myanmar by Andrew Korybko: https://sputniknews.com/columnists/201709051057114181-myanmar-after-rohingya-violence/
(My excuses for the popping up again of the face of the nazi Georgyi Schwartz, aka George Soros. I always see immediately a resembling with the face of evil Lord Sith of Star Wars.)
The US hopping around DPRK? Shadowplay, I think. The insidious North Koreans are a perfect excuse to have the US excessive military presence on the east side of the RC possible.
More soldiers. More marines. More weapon sales (especially that).
Transportation of ‘unrest’ to any place where the US can hurt trade of RC? Yes, it will go on. But, here in Europe only the Poles are so stupid to deny Russian gas, and buy much more expensive american LNG.
In his novel ‘The grand chessboard’ of Zbigniew Brzezinski (published somewhere in the nineties of last century), there were two main items.
First, grab Ukraine. They did. And now what? It’s one corrupt and chaotic clusterf*ck, most probably falling apart in a few parts.
Maybe the anglozionists reason that they can attack Russia now from really nearby. Nice. I have a peculiar thought about this: could the other way around be possible as well?
Secondly, Brzezinski warned about Russia and China growing into an alliance. He was confident that this would never happen, because he thought that they would never trust each other.
Now, look at what is happening.
The anglozionists don’t seem to grasp that now they are dealing with Asians, not Arabs. Asians have a long term memory.
The DPRK has not forgotten the slaughtering of them by the Japanese early 20th century. Also they didn’t forget the Korean war in the fifties. 20% of the civil population was killed, and no building was undamaged, most were completely destroyed. NK was flattened by US bombs. The US used napalm, and destroyed dams to starve the people to death. The North Koreans haven’t forgotten.
The Chinese haven’t forgotten the slaughtering by the Japanese in the thirties of last century. Yes, those sanctions really worked.
Just hit your search engine with ‘Japan Nanjing’ (ok, a preview: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/peoplesdaily/article-3342912/China-unveils-memorial-museum-site-WWII-brothel-Japanese-soldiers-kept-comfort-women-slaughtering-300-000-innocent-people-Nanjing-Massacre.html ).
Or, the sinister ‘Unit 731’ (ok, a preview: http://military.wikia.com/wiki/Unit_731 ). While Mengele was convicted, the Japanese running Unit 731: never. Actually, they ended up high in business and politics, while the US cherished the so interesting research results.
Chinese hate Japanese. That’s not ‘disliking’, no, it’s pure hate. They haven’t forgotten.
Wrapping up: my guess is that Russia and China are just buying time. Being reasonable, while preparing for the worst in silence. And working on the US weak point: they are slaves of a petrodollar, which is thin air, just backed into ‘value’ by a large military force.
But what do you rely on when you cannot pay the military anymore in a decent currency, because the USD has become close to worthless (which is the inconvenient truth)?
Just my few cents.
Good points, I think.
The bullying brinkmanship of US foreign policy is well known by the Russians and Chinese. Threats are the US way. As Dmitry Orlov says the Russians do not threaten, they act. The apparent dropping of a bunker-busting tactical nuke on the US coalition’s command centre after the “accidental” bombing of the SAA and embedded Russian adviser’s around Deir Ezzor would seem to bear that out.
Shortly thereafter Samantha Power freaked out at the UN as, apparently, did the US military establishment.
China demonstrated satellite killer tech years ago, and the ability to surface submarines in the midst of US ships undetected. There was the Donald Cook incident and the recent “accidents” in the South China sea. Is this the best tech China and Russia have? Maybe not.
It seems to me that the US is being played into zugzwang and aren’t at all sure what to do.
Exactly, and Putin will give them the chance to play nice all the way until there can be no other option.
People mistake his desire for peace as a weakness, but no… he always takes the high ground because it is the only honourable way to proceed, but he has a fist of iron ready if needed… the ultimate pragmatist.
To my way of thinking, these threats against China require an actual capability to close traffic on the South China Sea. Does the AngloZionist block have that capability? Given the USS Donald Cook incident, and the two recents “hacks” or “operations” against US ships in the Pacific, I have to question whether they have the capability.
Puts me in mind of that novel Saker mentioned a while back in an interview with Fitts, “Twilight’s Last Gleaming,” in which a desperate Empire overreaches militarily and ends up gutting itself.
Alex Jones tends to invite kooks onto his show for bombastic effect. Must sound great on the radio in an F-250. Taliban means “students” and is essentially Pashtun tribesmen. ISI might have some influence but that was largely through being the conduit for Saudi cash which also paid for Pak’s A-Bomb. Pak needs to keep disequilibrium on each of its borders to keep India occupied, but they really have no control over the NW Frontier just as British Empire did not as it tried to keep Russia out of Afghan in 19th Century.
As for China, it has big problems and no wish for conflict. US has big problems and a psychotic need for conflict. Europe wants to glue itself together and have US pay for defence so they can provide 52% global welfare spending on 6% population.
Germany will tilt after 24 Sept – Merkel will be in another GroKo with a more pro-Russia coalition and she will have no traction in US/UK axis. UK is heading for major economic squeeze and can no longer fund a military whose toys for Navy and RAF have shrunken the Army to a territorial force.
Turkey is tilting. Poland is neurotic and has lost its educated youth to UK. Central Europe has lots of space and an ageing demographic. Russia simply needs to pursue an NEP and create great incentives for entrepreneurs and farmers. It is a huge growth market which will suck in German businesses tired of Germany inertia and Dutch farmers and UK farmers.
Russia needs a more inviting Visa system and boost tourism. China knows it lacks the Mil-Tec but it needs 3-5 years to prepare to take down the US.
Then again Yeltsin took the USSR down without a single ICBM being launched………no doubt the Us will go down the same way, it is no longer a coherent Union.
Sorry, articles like this one- that attempt to emulate the nonsense is what the British used to call the ‘broadsheets’ (papers like ‘The Times’ ) do our side a massive disservice. Zooming in to the ***micro*** scale and then trying to assemble the ‘facts’ into some kind of conspiracy is never clever ‘analysis’ but exactly the kind of ‘thinking’ your masters encourage. They never want you to see the big picture.
1) the situation in the Far East is exactly how the West wanted it after WW2. Japan leading for as long as possible- China held back likewise. Then the inevitable rise of China to no.1 in the region, and a true world power- with China ***trained*** to be the workshop of the world.
The complication in that part of the world is that Japan will not allow itself to fall to no.3, so Japan’s old slave state, Korea, must be kept divided (hence the US troops there).
2) none of the current war zones have any type of essential resources for the great powers. Asia, Russia, West Europe, North and South America and Africa have all the resources anyone could possibly need and infinitely better mining. Failing nations only have mines and provide resources because they expend Human lives to dig stuff out of the ground- and provide the goodies ‘cheap’. But in truth their ‘cheap’ ores are only accepted to allow the nations some kind of economy. The highly mechanised modern mines of better lands are really far far more efficient.
3) China increasing uses the New Silk Road- the rail land routes from China to W Europe via Russia- to move its goods. And this way they move far faster and far cheaper than by sea. Sea is only still used cos of habitual methods and existing shipping companies- but will fall off except for trade routes that cannot be done by land.
4) America is never going to cut off its people from their Chinese manufactured toys. Oh yeah, I can really see Trump going on TV and saying “no iPhone X for the American people- we don’t like the Chinese any more”. Let’s grow up here!
Zoom out for heaven’s sake, and see things for how they actually are. The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) is as relevant as ever- it gave us 911 and it is going to give us the soon to be war with Iran (the last part of the first phase of the plan). And Iran isn’t going to be attacked for any laughable reason those with ‘microscopes’ think they spot. Iran is going to be attacked because that is the plan- full stop.
Zoom out. Russia is still going to be kicked from pillar to post while Putin continues to allow this. The kicking doesn’t hurt Russia itself- and indeed provides the incentive for Russia itself to get stronger. But it damages Russia’s international reputation- and weakens Russia’s international resolve.
America will move heaven and Earth to keep the situation in the Far East stable and to Japan’s liking. So no wars there and Korea stays split.
More political manipulation to break the will of the native popualtions of the West, and to make them hopeless and helpless- perfect fodder for the WW3 to come. But in the meantime the search for the propaganda excuse to justify the war on Iran continues. Iran is the ultimate ‘wiley fox’, and is always one step ahead of the West’s demonsiation project. But Russia is the weakest ally of Iran and the strongest ally of Iran’s regional enemies. The Libya Project- where Gaddafi was taken out without even needing an excuse- shows that when the West’s patience ends, they’ll just clobber Iran regardless and then finesse the fallout.
What about Yemen? Yemen is to Saudi Arabia what Korea is to Japan- an old slave state> Saudi Arabia has a full on racist spite war there- breaking everything nice owned by the Yemen people to put them back in their servile state. See Israel in Gaza for the perfect example of the vile philosophy.
The Deep State will continue to work the thorns in Russias side (equivalent to the body jabs in pro boxing). The DS will try to get to Iran via its involvement in Syria- but that’s not likely to work out. Maybe a big false flag- but they are so risky in the age of the Internet. Nah, one day soon America will go all ‘Gaza’ on Iran and give their ‘reasons’ in press conferences that follow, just like the genocidal Israelis do.
Most of the people on our side cannot see the big picture because its too much like staring into the Sun. Same reason most people believed WW1 and WW2 wouldn’t happen despite the perfect build up to each.
Russia can save us if it anticipates each major step in the Deep State plan, and acts decisively to frustrate that step. But did Putin prevent Libya or Syria? No! Did Putin call out the Fake News nonsense on N Korea? No- he actually voted for the West’s UNSC resolution against N Korea- making it seem like war with N Korea was a real possibility. So Russia ain’t going to save Iran from attack either.
Russia’s Grand Strategy is being the ‘muscular vicar’ who travels the globe preaching ‘can’t we all just get along with one another’. A good message in better times- but one that cannot get the job done in the face of true powerful evil. In the Middle East, for instance, Putin is preaching the message of enlightened self interest to Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. This could work if demons weren’t moving pieces on the chess board.
Of course war with Iran couldn’t possible be in the interest of the people of Turkey, Israel or Saudi Arabia- but that logic misses the point entirely. The demons of the Deep State despise all Humanity. Their ‘friends’ just as much as their ‘enemies’. War with Iran is the final step of stage one, and nothing and no-one is going to be allowed to get in the way.
“by hook or by crook” “by hook or by crook”- in the years leading to WW2 every logical thing was done to sate Adolf Hitler by powers outside the Deep State. It was illogical for the European part of the WW to erupt. There could only be losers. But what the ‘muscular vicars’ of the time did not understand was that the Deep State was going to have its World War irrespective of all logic. Better thinkers spoke of the shadowy money-men behind the build up to war- comments today that are disgustingly dismissed as ‘antisemetic’.
Iran and then Russia are the same situation today. Logic has nothing to do with it. Cui Bono has nothing to do with it. ‘facts’ from ‘bottom up’ analysis has nothing to do with it. There is going to be war on Iran, then there is going to be war on Russia- and I say this with the same absolute certainty as the people who pointed out how WW1 and WW2 were going to play out in the years to come. And only if Putin prevents war on Iran by making Iran a formally protected ally of Russia will WW3 be delayed (possibly indefinitely).
Good post twilight, I wonder how Israel will factor into all of this! Going nuclear will of course change everything. Probably inevitable. I think the Ants will win in the long run.
If G W Bush and family just happen to depart to their ranch in Paraguay, I would be rather apprehensive.
I’ve learned that anyone who begins a comment with “sorry” is self indulgent zionazi spam. That opening phrase seems to be a part of their training regime, especially among the websayanim associated with zio-brit media (is there any other sort in the uk now) comment spammers.
Good one, Scott. Yes, the Rohingya “genocide” story is being ramped up by the corporate globalist media and their minions along with “the beknighted Kurds” official line. Both stories are much more complex and nuanced than will ever be acknowledged.
And, yes, there is the scenario of an individual trapped in group karma i.e. a Muslim Rohingye living in a village where he was born which has had an influx of other Muslims from over the border over a period of say, 10-15 years. Certain of them decide to practice a militant Islam and begin to push out politically against the majority community. OK. There is push back and the Burmese military drives up to the village and says, ” We know that some of you are attacking police stations and harassing monks, so who are they?” You keep your mouth shut for obvious reasons and look at the Imam who does the same. The army then says: ” All of you have 1 hour to gather up your possession to leave back to Bangladesh.” And voila the world press pulls out its canards and screams genocide, human rights etc…. other nations threaten sanctions etc. etc.
My group karma is that I sit within 3 miles of an former Soviet missile strike target–the central East-West rail yards collection point for the entire West Coast of the USA. ” Fairness” has nothing to do with my demise should I continue to live here knowing what I know under the circumstances unless it be punishment for being too stubborn, stupid, to lazy to live in exile, or fatalistic etc.etc. to move.
Besides, who said life was a ticket to “fair” or “easy”? Especially when there is a much, much bigger game afoot…
Still there are those bright lights of dark humor:I LMAO at this one: ” So you want to play petty hardball? We will show you hardball a la Ruse! (Next we pull up the parking lot to search for “explosives”)”
OMG they will have to take mass transit? How plebian! or, much, much worse–actually Walk!!! Taxi, anyone? Cannot bike in the snow!
“So, European hyenas are getting ready to pounce at us, once again. I think, we all know that this time will be last one for Europe. I predict that it all will end up with six feet radioactive glass dome covering the European peninsula. In the future people will travel there for extreme tourism, to look on pale demons trapped in glass like bugs in amber.”
Well put, Scott! About time the Euro-trash gets what it’s asking for. A most convincing lesson along the lines of WW2 where the USSR kicked the rabid, ‘invincible’ Western animals for all the world to see. This time around, Russia’s losses will dwarf that of her enemies.
Just for the fun of it, I would seriously advise sparing BHL’s life. As the most courageous, witty Western philosopher of our times, he will most certainly have something profound to say about our world by then.
“… There is also my personal experience with radioactivity that left me with somewhat puzzling results. I don’t want to say that it turned me into a superman… I don’t quite know how to approach this subject, yet. …”
OK, fair enough … but at least give us a small clue… For instance, do you now suddenly speak with a soprano voice :-?
So I guess Scott glows in the dark? LOL

Nice guess. I don’t seem to age, among other things.
How old are you and at what age did you stop aging?
I think he talks about radiation hormesis.
I do not mean to sound like a pleaser, but once again excellent summary and very informative.
The sad thing is, that contrary to comics stories, radioactivity really f.cs you up. I hope that we do not have to deal with that eventuality.

Why did you omit Montenegro ?? A re you a Montenegrophobe ??
Maybe they don’t tell us everything about radioactivity.
Scare tactics – We are all going to hell in the company of atomic bombs and their radiation created nuclear winter.
Same as with AGW, people have no sense of size or volume of this globe. Mankind is nothing but an ant colonies on the surface and mega bombs are like fireflies looked upon from above.
Think of the lightening that goes on every day all around the globe, and compare the energy therein with what atomic all out war could show us.
How come nuclear powers have never used even their most minuscule a-bomb to reign in any of the rouge peoples of this world. (Oho they are so mean,let them roast in hell – radioactive hell).

The above is a rather obvious disinfo psyop for the nuclear weapons industry and the intelligence agencies.
question for the moderators:
Why is it impermissible to call somebody who claims that no atomic bombs were used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, an idiot?
