Zelenskyy Begs For NATO Entrance After Destruction Of Nordstream or: “There must be some way out of here”
Said the joker to the thief
“There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief.”
“No reason to get excited”
The thief, he kindly spoke
“There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we’ve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late”
All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too
Outside, in the distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl
On Sep 26 when Hurricane Ian was just south of Cuba it was predicted to take a northerly route. But the sea was angry that day my friends — like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. Far away in the Baltic Sea explosions destroyed the Nordstream gas pipelines and the storm over Cuba massively strengthened and took a sudden turn eastward.
At the same time in Ukraine there was a referendum on whether or not the people of the conquered areas wanted to become part of Russia. Putin made it known the war would enter a newer more intensive phase by calling up huge numbers of reserves. And just prior to the bombing of the Nordstream pipelines massive numbers of protesters in Germany were demanding the government open them up. They wanted relief from what they saw as economic sabotage by their politicians working with financial elites to cause the destruction of the lives of ordinary people for political reasons. Businesses large and small were seeing energy prices skyrocket beyond their means. People were fearful of losing their homes, their jobs, their future security. The protesters got their answer in a less than subtle manner. There would be no relief by cheaper Russian gas — only more salt water on top of their salty tears.
Why? Why is the integrity of Ukraine’s borders — which were only recently created by the USSR and not a historical reality till then — why is that worth the self-immolation of Europe’s economy?
The Russian people living in Southeast Ukraine and Crimea were forced into the borders of Ukraine by the leaders of the Soviet Union who expanded the borders of Ukraine into Russia because they wanted more Russians in Ukraine. But those people believed they had the right to not accept being ruled over by the non-elected far right aligned coup regime who murdered their way into power in 2014. Nevertheless Ukraine’s new coup regime political leaders supported by billionaire oligarchs and western elites demanded to have complete control over those people — whom they despised and treated badly — because where they lived was where the natural resources of Ukraine were most concentrated.
Ukraine’s elites had given into promises of great financial rewards by foreigners who controlled the IMF but who also had an agenda to bring down the economy and government of Russia. The demand by American and European elites in return for billions of dollars in aid and military protection — was for the government of Ukraine to fight a bloody and unwinnable war with Russia over control of the resource rich Donbas region. And also to change their laws for neoliberal reforms to allow the foreign buying of land and businesses.
Obviously they had a huge obstacle for that plan because of Russian military might. But what is the destruction of Ukraine if the rich and powerful could get richer and more powerful?
Obviously the foreigners pulling the strings knew they couldn’t win a war against the far larger Russian military. Russia had by far the largest and most modern military in Europe. To defeat them on the battlefield was impossible. But the western elites wanted the elites of Ukraine to fight the war anyway. Why?
A future with the current economic system of the world remaining as it is—controlled by American and European elites — was seen by those elites as less and less likely as time goes on.
Whitehall’s major problem with Moscow is that it “is seeking its own independent sphere of influence separate to any American-backed global order or rule book”, the then head of the British army, General Sir Mark Carleton-Smith, said last year.
Unacceptably to British planners, Russia elected to become a rival. Then defence secretary Michael Fallon said in 2017 that “Russia has chosen to become a strategic competitor of the West”.
His successor, Gavin Williamson expressed a similar lament, saying that “after 1990 we … believed there would be only one superpower”, referring to the US. Now, “Russia wants to assert its rights”, he complained. From EXPLAINER: BRITAIN’S PROXY WAR ON RUSSIA
For years China and Russia have been building a new financial system for their allies and business partners. Sanctions by western elites on so many nations and on so many powerful and rich people around the world, had led to their desire to escape the reach of the business elites who control American and European politicians from behind the scenes. It was only a matter of time until American and European financial control over the world would end as more and more countries became dependent on China and Russia for their imports and exports, for loans, for weapons, etc. The elites of America and Europe could see the writing on The Great Wall and were determined to put a stop to it.
But how to do that?
It was a very dumb plan. The plan was to entice Russia — to basically force them into defending the Russian people in Ukraine or lose face to the world as an impotent power. Thereby leading to defection from the new Russian and Chinese led economic system challenging the western powers. But first they needed a “moral basis” to try to destroy the Russian economy by “morally correct” sanctions. They couldn’t just cut them off for no reason but to harm them. Cutting them off from the American and European financial system, from their banks, from their insurance, from their markets, from their payment processing systems, from everything and anything if they have to — was the plan. That in turn would hopefully lead to revolution in Russia, or at least a coup.
They would use that destruction of the Russian economy and a hopeful coup by business interests to bring into power a pro-western government. That would then be used to pressure China to give up its plans for independence or fear facing a similar onslaught.
It was dumb because it was too little too late. Russian energy companies and other commodities had become far too important to the economy of too many nations. Key partners in the Middle East and Asia were not happy with the western elites. A world led by American and European elites was not seen as necessary to them. In fact they resented being treated as pawns by imperialistic western elites.
Somewhere Europe has to grow out of the mindset that Europe’s problems are the world’s problem but the world’s problems are not Europe’s problems. That “If it’s you, it’s yours. If it’s me, it’s ours.”— Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar at GLOBESEC 2022
The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and The President of The UAE let the world know how they felt when they snubbed President Biden over and over. Why should they give up their important relationships with the very lucrative Russian and Chinese business world just to satisfy the desires of rich Americans and Europeans to rule over the world? Obviously they would not play ball.
And that is why the plan was so dumb. They didn’t see that Russian and Chinese business partners in the Middle East, Asia, and in Latin America and Africa, would not go along with the plan to isolate Russia and then China. And because of that the sanctions against Russia would simply fail. And instead America and Europe would suffer greatly without Russian exports since they depended so much on cheap oil, gas, and other critical commodities. Europe needs Russian gas to keep their economies from crashing. Their elites dumb plan to rule the world would obviously be borne on the back of the working class who would obviously not be happy with them, to say the least.
Crushing inflation and seeing their jobs shipped overseas because they can’t afford the high cost of energy in Europe is creating a revolutionary fervor in Europe. Can the EU even survive? Brutalizing the average people for the selfish schemes of elites, for personal power and enrichment, is being seen for what it is. What does that portend for European leaders and their institutions?
The Great Reset may not be the reset they thought it would be, n’est-ce pas? And now right on cue — winter is coming.
