What Russia Must Do

Everyone knows that Putin is a beast driving Russia to war with the West with the goal of occupying all of Ukraine before rolling all the way from Poland to Portugal. The only hope the Russians now have of redeeming themselves and avoiding total disaster is to rid themselves of  Putin, the newest of New Hitlers and, as Colin James at the Saker explains:
[March Putin] through the Red Square tarred and feathered on his way to giving a press conference admitting his culpability for invading Ukraine and shooting down MH17, declaring European values to be the bestest thing ever, allowing NATO to have all of Ukraine including Crimea, dissolving all BRICS economic agreements and Eurasian security treaties, giving BP and Exxon controlling interests in Gazprom and Rosneft, and handing their entire government over to the fifth column Atlanticists.

THEN destroying all Russia's nuclear weapons and balkanizing the Russian Federation into fourteen mini-states, each controlled by their own Poroshenkite corrupt oligarch. Also, there would have to be a commitment to the requisite privatizations, elimination of banking regulations, austerity measures, and crippling IMF loans that can never be paid back. Oh, and GMOs.
But I'm not sure that'd be enough. Jen Psaki, John Kerry, the BBC and Stevie Harper would probably condemn the performance as a crude and transparent trick and that the only thing, really, would be an American nuclear first strike, taking out Putin and the rest of those subhumans (and here) occupying the Donbas region of Ukraine and their co-ethnics in Russia.

How Russia's gonna look. Source

Mike Whitney: Did Putin Just Bring Peace to Ukraine?
... There is no way to overstate the significance of what has transpired in Ukraine in the last three weeks. What began as a murderous onslaught on the mainly Russian-speaking population of east Ukraine, has turned into a major triumph against a belligerent and expansionistic empire that has been repulsed by a scrappy, battle-hardened militia engaged in a conventional, land-based war. The conflict in east Ukraine is Obama’s war; launched by Obama’s junta government, executed by Obama’s proxy army, and directed by Obama’s advisors in Kiev. The driving force behind the war is Washington’s ambitious pivot to Asia, a strategy that pits Russia against Europe to prevent further economic integration and to establish NATO forward-operating bases on Russia’s western border. Despite the overheated rhetoric, the talk of a (NATO) “Rapid Reaction Force”, and additional economic sanctions; the US plan to draw Ukraine into the western sphere of influence and weaken Russia in the process, is in tatters. And the reason it is in tatters is because a highly-motivated and adaptable militia has trounced Obama’s troopers at every turn pushing the Ukrainian army to the brink of collapse.

... Washington’s harebrained gambit was doomed from the get go. Who made the decision to topple Yanuchovych, install a US-puppet in Kiev, fill-out the security services with neo Nazis, and wage a bloody ethnic cleansing purge on the Russian-speaking people in the east?

Scotch Nationalists Gone Bonkers

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond said that the sight of people lining up to vote in the referendum on Scottish independence was 'almost reminiscent of scenes in South Africa'.

Er, well not exactly. Or actually not at all. Britain is not an apartheid state and the Scots are not an oppressed people, just a paranoid people, apparently, who imagine themselves to be harshly victimized.

Then there's former deputy leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party, Mr Sillars, who appeared campaigning with Mr. Salmond last week and who warned that oil giant BP would be nationalized "in part or in whole" by an independent Scotland.

Well, we can forget the "or whole," assuming that when Mr. Sillars says "nationalize" he means compulsorily purchase at fair market value, rather than "steal," since BP with annual sales twice Scotland's GDP has a market capitalization of around $150 billion or $30 thousand for every man, woman and child in Scotland, or a bit more than Scotland could actually afford.

As for the "in part," Scotland has no jurisdiction over BP except in Scotland, one of eighty countries in which the firm operates. So all that an independent Scotland might nationalize are BP's Scottish operations, but what would they be getting for their money?

Well just the leases that BP has acquired from the UK Government which allow the company, in return for taxes and royalties, to extract oil from the UK's sea floor. But BP's profit margins are not extravagant — about 5% of sales. So would the Government of Scotland do better in the deep water drilling business?

LOL. So much for that.

How, in reality, an independent Scotland would differ from the largely autonomous kingdom within the UK that it is today is hard to discover. English-born, English-raises and English-resident, former UK ambassador and fanatical Scotch Nationalist Craig Murray, had this to say on his blog the other day:

"How can anybody know what policies an independent Scotland will pursue? Nobody has the right to say what those policies will be."

Which is reminiscent of the company prospectus issued by hucksters at the time of the South Sea Bubble offering shares in:

“A company for carrying out an undertaking of great advantage, but nobody to know what it is.”

For the Scots to claim independence seems premature. Not that that will stop the nationalists from trying. Vote now: find out what you're to get later. That's what's on offer, and as many as 51% in Scotland say they are buying.

So much for democracy.

Igor Strelkov: NATO's Backing for Nazified Ukraine, Russia's Fifth Column and the War for the Destruction of Russia



Via the Saker.

Strelkov, aka Igor Girkin, reminds me of Strelnikov, aka Pasha Antipov, Lara's estranged husband — a man who considered the personal life to be dead,  as played by Tom Courtney in David Lean's film of Boris Pasternak's great novel, Dr. Zhivago. In fact, Strelkov could play the part better than Courtney. Like Strelnikov, Strelkov seems half crazy. Russia may be plagued by a fifth column, but his blaming fifth columnists for bad Russian policy in Ukraine seems either paranoid, or else a way of giving an attack on Putin the appearance of patriotism.

Strelkov, clearly wanted a direct march on Kiev, whereas Putin seems intent on roiling Western public opinion by allowing people in the West to see what scum the Obama-led US Empire and its EU puppets are backing.

To that end, stasis in Ukraine serves Putin best. Moreover, Putin must be happy to see Obarma drive the EU puppets to impose sanctions on Russia, since that allows Russia to impose commensurate retaliatory sanctions that enhance Russian self-sufficiency while pushing the EU into even deeper recession, creating further disaffection with the empire.

However, contrary to the urging of Paul Craig Roberts, Russia will not cut energy supplies to Europe (except under special circumstances, such as during Poland's recent attempt to get around Russia's termination of service to Ukraine for non-payment by back-flowing Russian gas to Ukraine. Russia) but will protect its reputation as a reliable energy supplier and a keeper of contracts.

If, however, the EU determines of its own accord to freeze in the dark this coming winter by shutting the valve on Russian gas, the better will that fulfil Putin's objective; namely, Western demoralization, raising the possibility of open European revolt against US hegemony, already beginning to be apparent in the recent electoral successes of European nationalist parties.

In all of this, one wonders about the role of Frau Merkel. In Putin's company she always appears at ease, not surprisingly since they speak one another's language and share an upbringing under the Soviet system. Yet Merkel goes along with all the foolish anti-Russian rhetoric and sanctions.

Could it be that she is simply playing along with Putin's strategy. That would explain expectations that she will resign as Chancellor sometime next year. When the downside to Obama's war on Russia — the economic cost plus the emotional stress for Europeans, particularly Germans, of backing war-criminal Nazis — becomes generally apparent, a change of regime will allow Germany to assert a new and more constructive direction in its relations with Russia.

Yes for "Independence" Will Mean Greater Subordination of Scotland to the Money Power

Craig Murray, the fired UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan, who is passionately wrong about just about everything,* has just announced that in the September 18 Referendum on Scotch independence the "Yes is very obviously headed for a majority."
On this, Mr. Murray may for once be correct. But if so, then the feeble “No” campaign and a win for the “Yes” is UK government policy.
Why?
Because the NWO — the Anglo-Zionist project for global empire subordinate to the money power (aka the New World Order) — requires the breakup of powerful nation states such as the UK (and most importantly Russia and then China), for the easier exploitation of the parts, which will receive their orders from supranational institutions such as the EU, NATO and the WTO.
Separation of Scotland from the UK will not mean greater independence for Scotland, it will mean greater subordination to the undemocratic control of those supranational institutions that serve  the financial interests.**

The feebleness of the “no” campaign is the result of the failure by the government of the UK to focus attention on the consequences of separation.
If you allow the debate to center on the question of “independence,” without discussion of the consequences of separation, then the “Yes” is at a huge advantage: Who would not opt for “independence” over, well, what’s the opposite: “dependence? “subordination?” “subservience?”
If the separatists ( or “terrorists” to use NATO jargon as applied to Eastern Ukraine) had been required to answer a few simple questions before the vote, such as how the UK national debt will be allocated between Scotland and the Disunited Kingdom (DK); what will be done with former UK and NATO defense installations in Scotland including nuke sub and air bases, radar installations, etc.; how the border will be controlled to prevent cross-border movement of illegal immigrants, smugglers and criminals (visas for Scots working in England? delays at the border due to customs and immigration inspections and controls); what will become of former UK Government employees in Scotland; what will happen to pensions of former UK civil servants in Scotland and contributors to the former UK national pension scheme, then the outcome of the debate would have been very different.
Another critical question left entirely in the air is that of the status of Scottish MP’s in Westminster during the negotiation of the terms of Scottish independence? Are the English really going to standby while laborite Scotch MP’s dictate the terms of settlement? And if not, is not the referendum merely the prelude to serious turmoil, that could lead even to violence.


* Murray’s latest effusion, in which he claims England has stolen Scotland’s ocean rights, provides a good example of his total incapacity for objectivity. The theft, he claims, is the result of the way in which the England–Scotland maritime boundary was drawn by the Blair government in 1999, resulting in the inclusion of seven oil fields south of the boundary that should rightly be attributed to Scotland. 


The claim is nonsensical for the simple reason that Scotland has no international maritime boundaries because it is not a sovereign state. Moreover, if it were a sovereign state, only a dope would expect what Murray claims to be logical, namely that Scotland’s Eastern maritime boundary should extend due East. That would be logical only if the coast of England and Scotland were oriented North-South in a perfectly straight line.
In fact, as CM perfectly well knows, the determination of maritime boundaries is a complex matter dependent on many factors including not only the shape of the coastline but the presence of features such as islands.
The existing maritime boundary between England and Scotland was established by the UK government as an internal administrative matter. If Scotland becomes independent the question of the maritime boundary will have to be resolved. The present administrative boundary will likely have no influence in the determination of the international boundary.
But any bollocks are good enough, apparently, to justify the claim of Scotch victimization.


** Some may question why the supranational institutions serve the financial interests, but the answer is pretty clear when you consider who else they might serve. Who runs those institutions? Bureaucrats and ex-politicians who have no elections to worry about. So who are they gonna serve? 

Themselves, obviously. 

What else are they going serve? 

The greater good of humanity? 

Come on: these are some of the most manipulative people on the face of the planet. Experts say that one in twenty of the population is psychopathic. Well these guys are super-intelligent psychopaths with terrific diplomatic, people-management or political skills that they deploy to their own advantage, which makes them perfectly responsive to the incentives the money power is so well able to provide.

Ukraine: After the Ceasfire Continued Escalation

Yuri Lytsenko, a senior aide to Western Ukraine's President Porky, claimed on his Facebook page that:
At the NATO summit agreements were reached on the provision of military advisers and supplies of modern armaments from the United States, France, Italy, Poland and Norway
A claim since denied by all but France.

On Otto Von Bismarck's principle that in war, one should believe nothing until it has been officially denied, the denials seem to confirm that Saturday's ceasefire "agreement" made among parties representing no one in particular, is a non-starter, or rather a non-war-ender, which is to say a meaningless irrelevance preceding further escalation to a full-blown proxy war between Nazi-NATO and Russia.

Meantime, shelling resumes in Mariupol and Donetsk; while the US and Ukraine plan joint naval drills in the Black Sea; NATO stages massive military drills in Latvia; Britain faces the imminent prospect of having its own "terrorist" breakaway region of Scotland; Gorby warns of a terrifying massacre in store for Europe (aren't all massacres terrifying?); the EU comedy team of Von Rompy and Bozozo threaten new sanctions against Russia before the ink on the ceasefire agreement has dried; Russia imposes import bans on substandard Ukrainian cake (since they have pledged help to Ukraine, let the French eat it); and Ukie troops opt for regime change in Kiev.

And now, despite Merkel's claimed wish for a solution in the Ukraine that does not hurt Russia, Germany is to supply Ukrainian troops with bullet-proof vests, thus insuring each and every Ukie soldier a better chance to kill a Russkie. What's more, Europe's decided to freeze in the dark this winter by imposing sanctions of Russian oil and gas exporters.

The US Economy Still Sucks

RECORD 92,269,000 AMERICANS NOT WORKING:
A record 92,269,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in August, as the labor force participation rate matched a 36-year low of 62.8 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The labor force participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent in six of the last twelve months, but prior to last October had not fallen that low since 1978.

Ukraine: Game Over or the Beginning of the Escalation?

As Brad Cabana explains, the Ukraine Government's genocidal assault on the Russian-speaking population of South-Eastern Ukraine is headed for total failure. By burning, shelling, strafing, bombing and lobbing ballistic missiles at civilian targets in Eastern Ukraine, the US-installed, neo-Nazi-backed Kiev junta has irretrievably lost all respect in Russian-speaking South-Eastern Ukraine, where independence is now the only acceptable option. At the same time, the junta armed forces, sent to occupy and punish the formerly federalist, now separatist, people of Eastern Ukraine have been comprehensively defeated by the local self-defense militia with substantial Russian aid.

The struggle may long continue. Great disasters may yet be in store. The psychopathic warlord Kolomoisky may yet blow the Dnieper hydro-electric dam, releasing 33 billion tons of water to wash away whole towns and villages.

But whatever events intervene, the latest episode in the drive for US global hegemony through color revolutions, sabotage, bribery, assassination and collaboration with the scum of the earth seems likely to end in an epoch-making reverse. Russia has already reclaimed its ancient naval base of Crimea with a compelling democratic mandate. And when the dust settles in Ukraine, the US project to bring its first-strike-enabling anti-missile system to Russia's Ukraine border will prove a humiliating failure.

Unless, that is, the West raises the stakes by direct intervention on the side of the Kiev neo-Nazis, leading to an escalating proxy war between NATO and Russia. Then, anything may happen and we could all be dead by Christmas.

Of the alternative, US-NATO humiliation is much to be preferred. For the West, the embarrassment would not be a catastrophe. By revealing for all to see that the existing genocidal system of Western capitalism is not only evil but profoundly stupid, it may provide an opportunity, perhaps the only opportunity, to restore in the West the sovereign nation-state democracies that have been submerged by the US drive to establish an oligarchic system of control over an enslaved, miscegenated global proletariat that is to be bred, culled and brainwashed at will.

Vive le Novorossia libre.

Why Most People don’t Know What They Think They Know About Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

First, and this is the biggie, Russia has not invaded Ukraine (and here).

But then there are several other reasons. For example, most people think that Russia or the “pro-Russian” rebels of East Ukraine shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 over the Donetsk battle zone. For some reason, this is supposed to clinch the argument for Russian invasion and, in general, for the utter evil of Vladimir Putin and the Russian people stupid enough to support him.

But the entire concept is incorrect.

First, because there are no  “pro-Russian” rebels. The civil war in Ukraine is being fought between US-installed Nazis in Kiev who launched a war of extermination against six million ethnic Russians in Eastern Ukraine, and the people of Eastern Ukraine opposed to being genocided by a murderous Ukrainian state controlled by oligarchs and criminals backed and financed by the forces of the New World Order; namely, Washington, Ottawa, London, NATO, the IMF, etc., etc.

Second, because there is no evidence that the downing of MH-17 had anything to do with Russia or those fighting for East Ukraine independence. This is clear from the determination of the Nazified Western states (i.e., Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia) who are conducting the technical investigation of the crash to prevent release of the results of their own investigation. The implication is clear, those results prove that MH-17 was shot down by Kiev forces or their Western backers, with the obvious intent of smearing the “pro-Russians” fighting for their lives in Eastern Ukraine with the crime of mass murder.

Moscow has repeatedly called for an end to the violence and a resumption of negotiations, but each request has been rebuffed by Obama’s puppet in Kiev leading to another round of hostilities. Washington doesn’t want peace. Washington wants the same solution it imposed on Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, that is, a chaotic failed state where ethnic and sectarian animosities are kept at a boiling point so forward-operating bases can be established without resistance, so resources can be extracted at will, and so a formally-independent nation can be reduced to a “permanent state of colonial dependency.” (Chomsky) That’s the basic gameplan wherever Washington goes. The same rule applies to Ukraine. The only choice the people have is to arm themselves and fight back. Which is what they’ve done.

Donetsk and Lugansk have formed militias and taken the war to the enemy. They’ve engaged Obama’s proxy-army on the battlefield and pounded it into mincemeat. That’s why Obama deployed his propagandists to lie about the fictitious “Russian invasion”. The administration needs a diversion because the Novorussia forces (aka-the “pro Russia separatists”) are kicking the holy crap out of Obama’s legions. ...

B'nai Brith to Nominate Stephen Harper for Nobel Peace Prize — LOL

B’nai Brith Canada, an organization chiefly engaged in yelping about a horrifying incidence of anti-Semitism in Canada, will nominate Stephen Harper for the Nobel Peace Prize, a prize unconnected except in name with Alfred Nobel that is awarded by a corrupt committee of warmongering Norwegian MPs.

Harper, a fervent Russophobe who equates Canadian critics of the Israeli government with Hitlerite Nazis, seems an ideal candidate to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Peace Prize winner Barak O'Bomber, the worst American President ever, the man who destroyed Libya (with Harper's assistance) — then the most prosperous country in Africa, renewed the bombing of Iraq, and now with side-kicks Harper and Cameroon, seeks to launch WWIII.

Meantime, Canada plans to provide further military help to the Nazis of Kiev now being terrorized by the Russian speakers of their own South-Eastern provinces who they (the Nazis, that is, the folks we Canadians support) set out to exterminate. At the same time, the EU is looking to screw itself to spite the Russians by further sanctions on its own trade.

As someone several thousand years ago said, those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.

Ukraine: Nazi NATO Setting the Stage for a Proxy War on Russia

The US, in rapid economic and military decline relative to its rivals Russia and China, is intent on a war to smash the competition while the possibility of success remains. The principle of mutual assured nuclear destruction that for more than 70 years has kept the peace between the United States and Russia does not apply in wars between US and Russian proxies. The US thus aims to create the conditions for a proxy war in Ukraine, the ultimate objective of which is the humiliation of Putin, disintegration of the Russian Federation through foreign subversion, a new round of oligarchic looting, and expansion of NATO to China's border.

America's own representatives, the Kiev junta, have already been installed. But on the other side space must be created for the Russian proxy. A start was made by the declaration by former Ukraine PM and Presidential candidate Julia Tymoshenko of genocidal intent against the eight million Russians of South Eastern Ukraine, a provocation followed by the little-reported atrocities committed against unarmed opponents of the Kiev junta in Odessa and during the ongoing punitive assault on Donetsk, Lugansk and other towns of Eastern Ukraine, where the people were incited by the terrorists and neo-Nazis of Kiev to vote overwhelmingly for autonomy within a federated Ukraine.

Memorial to the Second Nazi War on Russia: Source.
The memorial to the First Nazi War on Russia. — same location.
In defending themselves from attack by both the regular Ukraine army and Kiev's punitive brigades of neo-Nazis and criminals, the people of Donetsk Republic have transformed a self-defense militia of a few dozen volunteers into a well-disciplined and battle hardened army that makes the plausible claim to have killed, captured or wounded over 35,000 junta forces. Now the army of the Donetsk Republic appears to be on a roll, encircling large junta troop formations and rapidly extending its area of control. It is quite possible, however, that Ukraine army forces are being deliberately sacrificed by the Ukrainian command in order to create a significant footprint for Russia's proxy.

If that is the case, a turning point can be expected quite soon, at which time the junta forces will be stiffened either by better leadership or, as necessary, through increased NATO support. Then it will be Russia's turn to provide further assistance to their representatives. From that point, the sky's the limit to possible escalation. With home-made nukes already in their possession, the Kiev junta may be the first government to nuke their own people. Most critical, would be the struggle for control of the air, with Russia's anti-aircraft missile systems pitted against the US Air Force that performed so admirably on 9/11.

As for the outcome, who knows? Or as Winston Churchill remarked:
Always remember, however sure you are that you could easily win, that there would not be a war if the other man did not think he also had a chance.
Can such a war be averted? Almost certainly not unless the United States is confronted by a rebellion within the NATO alliance. The European nations, with the exception of Poland, the Baltic crazies and the UK, obviously don't want a new European civil war. In particular, neither Germany nor Russia have any reason for war.  On the contrary, both countries are well aware that the combination of German capital and technology with Russian human and natural resources can forge a hugely prosperous central European partnership.

The risk of rebellion against America`s war plans is, however, not great. Ask the US to remove their military bases from your territory and your nuclear reactors may blow up, question 9-11 and your airliners may be shot out of the air or simply disappeared. In fact, show any inclination to refuse the leadership of the indispensable nation and pressures will be brought to bear, and your leadership bought, blackmailed or assassinated. Hence the grovelling sycophancy of Stephen Harper, Tony Abbott, and Friend-of-Israel Cameron to the US-Israeli warmonger alliance.

Across Europe, it is true, the people have begun to push back against US imperialism, with strong electoral support going to nationalist parties. It is questionable, however, what signficance these nationalist movements have. Most are probably already firmly under the control of national or foreign security services. Angela Merkel, it is true, has had the temerity to deny the indispensability of indispensable nation and to demand a solution to the US-manufactured Ukraine crisis that does not harm Russia, while Hungary has condemned EU sanctions on Russia as counterproductive, while demanding autonomy for ethnic Hungarians in Ukraine.

But meantime the propaganda for war intensifies. The New York Times, notable for telling the World of Saddam`s soon-to-be-proved-nonexistent, weapons of mass destruction, is now assuring the World that Russia has begun the invasion of Ukraine. This, surely, is the prelude to new and aggressive anti-Russian measures to be decided upon at this weekend`s NATO meeting in Britain. The possibility of Europe collectively telling the US of Aggression to, in the words of a great American imperialist, go fuck themselves thus seems negligible to non-existent.

The thing is, Brzezinski is not original; he repeats the words of a German General Paul Rohrbach, who stated, in the beginning of the XX century: “to diminish the threat of Russia to Europe, and especially to Germany, you must completely remove Ukrainian Russia from Muscovy Russia”. Please note that to a German General both – Ukraine and Muscovy – are Russia; and he speaks of creating an internal, Russian, split. He evokes the ideas of the German politicians of the last third of the XIX century, principally Otto Eduard Leopold von Bismarck-Schönhausen, who not only insisted on the necessity of such a split, but defined the means.

Former German Defense Secretary: Germans Are Fed Up With NATO Lies About Ukraine and Look Forward to Departure of NATO Chief, Fogher Rasmussen



Former German Defense Secretary, Willy Wimmer: "People here in Germany are fed up with NATO lies and  they are fed up with wars organized by the United States, here and there and everywhere."

Actually, most Germans are probably taken in by the lies of Der Spiegel and the rest of the warmongering Deutsche MSM. Still, more intelligent Germans no doubt see through the lies, as more honest German politicians acknowledge.

Meantime, China describes the United States as "a disgusting thief looking over his neighbors fence."

Which seems to resonate with Jesus' rebuke to the Pharisees:
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Seems like a fair summing up of the US State Department spokeswomen, Hillary Klingon and Nobel Piss Prize winner O'Bomber.

Ukraine and the War for the World

The following comment by M.K. Ngoyo, which I have lifted directly from a discussion on the Saker's blog, provides a useful framework within which to understand the present struggle in Ukraine and the fundamental strengths and weakness of the US Empire and its adversaries.
Russia and China must realize the deadly seriousness of the trap that has been set for them in Ukraine.

The US has finally woken up to the massive blunder that they made at the end of the cold war. Believing thoroughly their own victory propaganda along with that nonsense by Francis Fukuyama about the end of history, they allowed, first, the rise of China and then the reemergence of Russia.

Well now the West is back, and they intend to finish the job. Once and for all. What the West is fighting for in Ukraine is the survival of its system of imperial domination of the world. Which is to say its fighting for the source of its wealth, its way of life, its very identity, as established over the last 500 years. In this struggle there will be no compromise. All such moves will be illusory. Russia may expect and ask for quarter, but no quarter will be given.

In the long term and strategically speaking, the real challenge to the West is not really Russia. It is China. But to defeat China, the West must first defeat Russia.

The West's strategy for defeating China is to control its air supply. Its access to resources and markets around the world. Once this choke-hold is established, then pressure can be applied or relaxed as needed to bring China to its knees or harness it as a work horse for the West.

However, the imperial hand will never fully encircle China's neck so long as Russia is a powerful and independent state, capable of acting in its own best interests. The West may chase China out of Africa, Latin America, South Asia etc but a free Russia will always be capable of supplying China will all raw materials as well as access to markets.

Therefore, the road to defeating China goes right through Moscow. Like it as not the West must tread this path, and they know this. The West must defeat Russia if it is to survive as global master.

But they don't have to defeat Russia militarily. I believe what they want is the "Yeltsinization" of Russia. They just need to break Russia's will to resist, bring it under their remote control and they will be able to complete their grip on China.

The strategy is simple, embroil Russia in a series of permanent crises on its border. Both without and within the Russian border. They don't need to take control of Ukraine, they just need to threaten that, chronically and credibly.

After Ukraine the member of the Customs Union can expect their own Maidans. They may as well start preparing now. The other 'stans in central Asia may also expect Maidans.

Russia exhausted by an endless succession of crises within its sphere of influence will be brought to heel and turned against China.

The only hope that I see for Russia and China is the quality of their current leadership.

The political leadership of both China and Russia is of a very high calibre as compared to what is to be found in the US and other Western countries. I believe they can escape the trap that has been laid for them, but it won't be easy.

Putin, above all, must step up to the challenge of global leadership. The world is waiting for this, indeed crying silently for it.

This is no time to focus on domestic Russian concerns. Putin must challenge the West on its own domestic situation, corruption and soulless culture. Putin must seize the leadership of the West's, dispossessed and disillusioned.

Respected publications, like the Financial Times or the once respected NRC Handelsblad of the Netherlands for which I worked sixteen years as East Asia Correspondent, not only joined in with this corrupted journalism but helped guide it to mad conclusions. The punditry and editorials that have grown out of this have gone further than anything among earlier examples of sustained media hysteria stoked for political purposes that I can remember.

In Canada We're All Nazi-lovers Now

Stephen Harper has made no secret of his complete devotion to the genocidal, Russophobic neo-Nazi-backed Kiev junta and has incurred huge costs to Canada as a consequence: two hundred and twenty million dollars in cash; sanctions on Russian firms prompting retaliatory Russian sanctions costing Canadian pork producers alone the loss of over half a billion dollars in sales; millions for the supply of "non-kinetic" military aid to the genocidists of Kiev, plus the cost of sending Canadian armed forces personnel and fighter jets to Romania  and Poland.

Neo-Nazis of the Ukrainian Azov battalion. Source
Canada's Liberal Party is just as fervent in support of Ukraine's Russophobic Nazis. As Ukrainian-Canadian liberal MP Chrystia Freeland told the Globe and Mail “it’s really important for me personally as a Ukrainian-Canadian” that Canada take "a very strong line in support of Ukraine" and she added, “for us as a party, we think Canada is stronger in supporting Ukraine if we don’t play politics with this issue," which is to say Liberals are right there with Stephen Harper in support of the Banderites marching off to kill Ukrainian citizens of Russian ethnicity in East Ukraine under the wolfsangel banner as deployed by German Nazis during WWII.

With Justin Trudeau, it appears to be a case of like father like son, for there seems to have been no dictator that père, Pierre Trudeau, did not like. Fidel Castro he loved, Mao Tse Tung he adulated, and during WWII he so admired Hitler that he rode a motorcycle around Montreal wearing a helmet decorated with a swastika.

As for the NDP, Canada's official opposition party, does anyone have the slightest idea what leader Thomas Mulcair thinks about the war in Ukraine, Canadian sanctions on Russia, Canadian war planes in Romania, troops in Poland and with "non-kinetic" military aid to the Nazi-backed Kiev junta? Certainly a Google search reveals nothing.

Even Green Party leader Elizabeth May has had nothing to say about the war in Ukraine, which suggests that we can say that, in Canada, we're all Nazi-lovers now.

Situation report, August 26
... Partisan activities are increasing in frequency and force in the Kharkov and Slavyansk areas to the point Kharkov is building defenses facing Novorossiya. Of particular interest was the capture two weeks ago of an entire Kamaz load of Javelin antitank missiles. These missiles were offloaded from the 'Canadian' air force planes that brought 'non lethal' aid to the Uke army according to eye witnesses. The Javelin is not listed in the TOE (Table of Organization and Equipment) of the armed forces of Canada, although I have few doubts that that oversight will be rectified within minutes of this report being read in The West.

...Every day and every night the bombardment [of Novorossiya] continues. Civilian areas are mainly the targets. The destruction has been carefully planned and executed. The damage is in the many billions of euros and will take years to repair. The loss of life and injuries to the innocent civilians well exceeds 5,000 since the beginning of the war in April. The time for negotiations with Ukeland are long gone. The war will end when every single occupier of Novorossiya land from Ukeland is either ejected, in a POW camp or dead.

WW4: America's Neville Chamberlain Strategy — Set the Nazis Against the Russkies Then Stand Aside and Watch the Mutual Annihilation

Neville Chamberlain, the British Prime Minister universally reviled for his policy of appeasing Hitler, aimed not to appease Hitler, but to bring about the mutual destruction of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia.* It was to this end that he compelled Czechoslovakia to cede to Germany the Sudentenland thereby opening the way for Hitler's subsequent invasion of the rest of the Czechoslovakia. Thus it was, also, that Chamberlain made no effort to meet Britain's commitment to the security of Poland when it was jointly invaded by Russia and Germany. Chamberlain's sole objective was to bring Russia and Germany face to face and wait for the hoped for war of mutual destruction.

Today, the Anglo-American strategy is the same. It is to raise a mighty Nazi army in Ukraine against Russia, backed by the American puppet regimes in Western Europe. Here, Putin adviser Sergei Glaziev, spells it out, how the prelude to WW4 is unfolding:



In this statement, Glaziev gives a broader account of his view of the geopolitical state of the World:



These are not the rantings of some unknown Internet commentator or no known influence in the world. These are the considered views of a close adviser to the leader of the World's only nation with the capacity to reduce the United States (and Western Europe) to radioactive ash.

Why the billionaires want to wipe you and the rest of the proletarian scum from the face of the Earth

Until the industrial revolution, every pair of hands was capable of work of value more or less equal to, or greater than, the cost of their maintenance. Thus population was of value to the elite and the wealthiest countries were those that supported the greatest populations.

Today, in the West, most people are redundant, not in theory, but in fact. Half the US population receives some form of welfare, workforce participation is declining, young people continue their "education" into their twenties and even thirties, becoming increasing ill-informed with every additional year of state-controlled, politically correct indoctrination in all matters from sex to climate change. In the meantime, computerization and robotization continually reduce the value of a pair of hands.

The off-shoring of millions of jobs from the West to the Rest, though it lowered real household income in the West, likely delayed the advance of automation, since it is tougher to build a robot that cost-effectively replaces an Asian paid 50 cents an hour, than to build one that replaces an American paid the minimum hourly wage of ten dollars or so.

But as the following video makes clear, the drive to create an automated economy, not just in manufacturing, transportation and low-level office work, but in the professions and creative occupations too, is proceeding relentlessly.




Hence the war on the nation state, a fundamentally democratic form of government that by definition must serve the interests of the people and thus do what is necessary to provide for them a means of subsistence and a basis for self-respect. Hence also the war on the Russian Federation where:
  • the GDP has tripled in the last fifteen years and the standard of living, if still modest, has vastly increased.
  • the thousand-year-old Russian commitment to the Orthodox Christian faith has been reaffirmed: a faith that holds each person, high or low, to be a child of God, created in God's image, and capable of the highest moral worth. 
  • where the ethnic and cultural heritage of the nation is protected by the state.
In all these respects, Russia and other genuine nation-state hold-outs are the great impediment to the dream of the globalist billionaire elite. That dream is to destroy the mass of humanity, now seen as useless eaters  made moronic by a globalized culture that grants greater legal protection to pornographers than to advocates of Christian faith, that destroys national traditions in the name of multi-culturalism, and that aims at the destruction of the ancient races of mankind through mass migration justified in the name diversity.

Few people in the West understand what is happening to them. They tolerate or chauvinistically applaud the Anglo-American drive for world hegemony, including the war on Russia, while failing to realize that their own ruling class has sold out — has been bought by the plutocratic elite, the Bilderbergers, the Trilaterists, the Davos crowd, the bankers and corporations that finance the Council on Foreign Relations and Chatham House, and that they are of no concern to anyone in government except as a potential cause of dissidence or revolt, against which governments continually prepare themselves, reading people's mail, destroying ancient liberties and accumulating means to crush civil unrest.

There is only one reason why anyone can have ever formed this opinion: they are massively ignorant of how the world works. Putin is ex-FSB, and it is he, along with the upper echelons of Russian intelligence, that runs Russia. This is seen as 'anti-democratic' in the West and in those Russian minds infected by Western 'values' and propaganda.

Ukraine President's Fantasy of Russian Military Intervention?

Beginning with the US-instigated, neo-nazi-backed coup d'état in Kyiv, every effort seems to have been made by the agents of empire to provoke Russian intervention in Ukraine where NATO can get to work killing Russians without immediate risk of nuclear retaliation.

But so far, things haven't worked out quite as intended. Russia declined to mobilize forces to eliminate the nazi/oligarch monstrosity in Kyiv, but quietly retook possession of her ancient naval base of Crimea in accordance with an overwhelming democratic mandate from the largely Russian population of the peninsula.

As a further provocation, the fascists of Kiev sent a band of psychopaths to Odessa to commit an atrocity against citizens restive at the undemocratic turn of events in Kyiv. But Russia failed to invoke the Empire's principle of "R2P," which is to say the right to bomb the hell out of any country where the government has engaged, or is said to have engaged, in killing its own people.

At the same time, the Kyiv junta was itself faced by a provocation from its own people, namely, a referendum in Donbass in which more than 80% voted for autonomy within a federal Ukrainian state. In response, the Kyiv fascists sent an army of 70,000 regular troops, conscripts and nazi volunteers marching beneath their Wolfsangel banner, to bomb, shell and bayonet the "subhuman," "terrorist" Russian-speaking civilians of Lugansk, Donestsk and surrounding Donbass communities.

But again, Russia failed to intervene directly or even indirectly so far as could be convincingly demonstrated by the imperialist media. Thus, the Russophobes in Kyiv, Russia's ancient capital, committed a new atrocity: they shot down a civilian airliner killing all 298 innocent civilians on board, while faking evidence to show that the crime had been committed by the Eastern dissidents with direct Russian assistance.

Even the CIA found that hard to stomach and directly refuted Imperial Warmonger in Chief, President Obama, by pointing out that there was no direct Russian involvement in the destruction of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17. The Russians went further, revealing that a Ukrainian air-force fighter jet was within air-to-air missile range of the downed airliner at the time of the crash. Moreover, Russia pointed out that the Ukrainian proof of "rebel" responsibility was fabricated and place on YouTube the day before the crash.

So, what to do? Apparently, with the aid of the Guardian, Britain's wholly Zionist/Chatham House controlled news outlet, announce a Russian military incursion into Ukraine, an announcement shortly to be followed by President Porky's triumphant claim that Ukraine had destroyed the Russian force. But now the question arises, did the Russian incursion actually occur, or was it a total fabrication?

The Russians deny any incursion by their forces, and on the face of it, the Ukrainian claim is inherently difficult to believe, quite apart from the total untrustworthyness of the source. If Russia decided to intervene militarily in Donbass, would they not deploy something more significant than a dozen trucks, easily destroyed by Ukrainian artillery, of which an abundance has been moved to the Donbass for the purpose of killing Ukrainians in their own homes. But to find out, we will have to await further developments.

Meantime, the Ukie fascist friends of the Western empire, are deploying white phosphorus against the "subhumans" of Donbass: maybe that will move the Russians to embark on a military intervention on humanitarian grounds. If they do, it will be denounced in the West as an imperialistic adventure that must be repulsed with the full force at NATO's disposal.

Trade sanctions were imposed on Russia at the urging of the Empire of Lies, aka Obamastan, on the pretext that Vladimir Putin cold-bloodedly murdered the 298 souls aboard the downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17. Now that it is known that the destruction of MH-17 had nothing to do with Russia or the Russian-speaking Federalist rebels in Eastern Ukraine but was almost certainly an act of mass murder by America's fascist puppets in Kiev, the Europeans look like what they actually are, dupes of the O'Bomber—Fogher Rassmussen lie machines and their oligarch-owned media accomplices. Moreover, they look like really stupid dupes, since the counter sanctions imposed by Russia cause more pain to the EU, both economically and politically, than Europe's sanctions cause Russia. In fact, the Russian economy will likely come out stronger as a result of the reciprocal sanctions, since they will stimulate Russian agriculture, particularly the horticultural sector, while strengthening economic ties with the BRICS nations.

So much for the EU's grovelling submission to the United States of Aggression.

"We haven't received any armored vehicles from Russia. No Russian units, including Russian armored vehicles, have crossed the border. Hence, no Russian armored vehicles could have been destroyed," DPR First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Purgin told Interfax on Friday evening.

Purgin claimed that, on the contrary, the militias destroyed about 100 Ukrainian armored vehicles.

"A lot of Ukrainian armored vehicles were destroyed today, 7 at one place, 12 at another. And the same all over the DPR territory. A total of about 100 of them," Purgin said.
