The latest bomb attacks in Brussels are clear proof that the attacks in Paris were not a fluke, but the first in what is likely to be a long string of similar terror attacks. Such attacks are really nothing new, this is exactly what Russia had to endure in the 1990s, from the same people and for the same reasons. But whereas Russia eventually succeeded in defeating both the Chechen Wahabi insurgency and the Chechen Wahabi terrorism, Europe appears to lack all the resources needed to prevail. What is even worse, EU leaders appear to be dead set in their current russophobic policies thereby cutting themselves off the much needed help Russia could offer.

There are objective reasons why Brussels was chosen: it is the capital of the European Union, of course, but it is also a “soft” target, much easier to hit than, say, the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) in the Belgian city of Mons or the NATO HQ in city of Haren, near Brussels. But that is not the “really real” reason why Brussels was hit. The sad truth is that Europe has been setting itself up for exactly this kind of attack.

First, when the same people (Wahabi crazies) used the same methods (terror attacks) against the biggest neighbor of Europe (Russia), the European elites gave their full support to the terrorists, not only politically (by presenting them as freedom fighters) but even directly (MI6 and the CIA were both directly and heavily involved in the Chechen wars). At that time Russia was very much like the EU today – ruled by a completely corrupt elite totally sold out to the AngloZionist Empire, Russian security services were almost completely dismantled, the Russian general public mostly clueless about what was going on and the economy was in shambles. Russia was in easy (soft) target then just as Europe, all of it, is a easy (soft) target today.

Second, Europe has lovingly cultivated a obscene friendship with three of the foremost sponsors of terrorism on the planet – Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel. Being ‘in bed’ with that kind of bedfellows just had to result in some ugly blowback. And now that Erdogan has precisely predicted the terror attack in Brussels, the European are still not asking the hard questions (instead they choose to believe the claim that Erdogan warned the Europeans).

Third, for decades now the EU has had an absolutely suicidal policy on immigration or, should I maybe say, no real policy at all, unless you consider “let them all in” a policy. Every single intelligence service in Europe has known for decades that immigrants are a major risk, both in terms of petty crime such as drug dealing and in terms of terrorism. Everybody knew that, but political correctness prevented anybody of saying this openly lest he/she be accused of racism. Let me just give you one example: everybody in the Swiss police and intelligence community has known for years that the Albanian terrorists from the UCK had their political headquarters and money in Switzerland, even some newspapers mentioned this fact. Likewise, everybody in Switzerland also knew that Albanians mobsters control the hard drugs market. And yet the Swiss authorities did absolutely nothing to stop this. The same kind of denial happened in France with immigrants from the Maghreb (GIA) and in Germany with the Turks (Grey Wolves) and Kurds (PKK). Instead of taking the measures needed to protect the general public, the politicians chose to hush up the problem, vilify those who dared mention it while the security services tried to appease (and even use!) the terrorist groups.

Fourth, the European police and security forces are typically under-staffed, under-paid, under-trained, over-worked, severely constrained in their actions and generally disorganized and uncoordinated. They also have a dire need for translators and interpreters and they often lack the legal basis to investigate and monitor or infiltrate the immigrant communities. In most countries they are also underequipped and even their basic gear is old and outdated. Again, the parallel with the Russia of the 1990s is striking.

Fifth, instead of focusing on the clear present danger of the penetration of terrorists under the guise of refugees, Europe has concentrated its resources on countering the (non-existing) “Russian threat” wasting money on command centers, communication nodes, pre-positioned supply dumps and, of course, various exercises and maneuvers aimed at “deterring the Russian bear”. Even worse, the Europeans have, until now, categorically and repeatedly refused to collaborate with the Russians on any security issues, including terrorism.

Sixth, the ruling elites of the EU have systematically branded those who dared to warn about the dangers of terrorism through immigration as “racists” while, at the same time, introducing all sorts of totally useless but very offensive anti-Muslim measures such as banning schoolgirls from wearing a veil (of course, kids in Jewish kippas were left unmolested) or raising a panic over the number of hahal butchers in Paris (of course, kosher stores were left unmolested).

ORDER IT NOW

It is therefore not surprising that such a toxic mix of stupidity and arrogance had to eventually result in attacks like those in Paris or Brussels. But the worst part of this is that there are no indications whatsoever that the European ruling elites have learned anything or that they are reconsidering their suicidal policies. So far, we have seen Federica Mogherini sobbing and the Eiffel Tower in Paris lit in Belgian colors. But still no real policy decision, or even general plan, on how to deal with the current terrorist threat.

But what the EU does have is a 5-points plan on how to deal with Russia, a plan unanimously adopted by all 28 member states. This plan, called ‘guiding principles‘ is so arrogant and delusional, that it deserves to be fully quoted here:

The first of these guiding principles is the full implementation of the Minsk agreements as a key element for any substantial change in our relations. By the way, this is an important week, it is the week where two years ago the illegal annexation of Crimea took place and we re-stated our common strong position of non-recognition of the annexation of Crimea.

The second principle is strengthening relations with our Eastern Partners and other neighbours, in particular in Central Asia, and we had very good discussions on how to proceed in this respect.

Third, strengthening internal European Union resilience, in particular in view of energy security, hybrid threats and strategic communication, but not only.

Fourth principle we all agreed on is the need for selective engagement with Russia, both on foreign policy issues – this is clear, when it comes to Iran or the Middle East Peace Process or Syria, but also DPRK, migration or counter-terrorism, climate change – but also in other areas where there is a clear European Union’s interest.

The fifth of our guiding principles is the willingness to support more and more the Russian civil society and engage and invest in people-to-people contacts and exchanges and policies that are related to that, with a particular view to the youth of Russia and the youth of the European Union because we see the future of our countries as something we need to invest into.

Translated into plain English, this means that the EU is determined to:

  1. Continue to punish Moscow for the non-implementation of the Minsk-2 Agreement by Kiev
  2. Continue to try to surround Russia with hostile regimes in Europe and Central Asia
  3. Continue to accuse Russia of being a threat to Europe
  4. Hope that Russia will ‘selectively engage’ the EU where it is to the EU’s advantage
  5. Continue to support the 5th column inside Russia

In the words of Mogherini, adopting these principles “was not a difficult discussion”. Unlike issues of immigration or terrorism, on Russia the Europeans apparently agree. This is disgusting, to say the least.

In the meantime, the Russian Duma’s Deputies stood for a minute of silence in homage to the murdered victims from the latest attack, while scores of Russians, including Foreign Minister Lavrov, brought flowers to the Belgian embassy in Moscow. They did the right thing, of course, but deep in their hearts most Russians are also quite aware that when Russians were murdered by the hundreds by Wahabi terrorists no EU parliament had any minutes of silence and no the predecessors of Mrs Mogherini shed any tears. As was so obscenely shown following the Charlie Hebdo murders, in Europe some lives are more precious than others. Nothing new here.

It is well known that thugs always carefully choose their victims whom they want to be unaware of their surroundings, easily frightened into submission, inclined to try to appease any enemy and generally unable to offer a determined resistance. Daesh, like all terrorists, very much shares that kind of mentality and in Europe they have found the perfect victim. Europe is intellectually, financially, politically, socially and morally bankrupt. The European society is unable to reform itself, its ruling classes are unable to inspire any kind of real national security strategy and Europe will remain an easy target for future terrorist attacks. I personally see no future for Europe whatsoever until the people of Europe finally force the current comprador elite totally sold out to the AngloZionists out of power and replaces them with real patriots capable of defending the interests of the people of Europe.

It is ironic that the Ukrainian slogan “Україна – це Європа!” (The Ukraine is Europe) has, in reality, been reversed and instead of the Ukraine becoming like Europe, it is Europe which became like the Ukraine: weak, corrupt, unable to formulate a policy beyond obeying Uncle Sam, completely delusional about her real capabilities and a Petri-dish for all sorts of terrorists.

It is hard to believe, but most countries in Europe are slowly turning into what is usually called a “failed state”. Here is one definition of this concept: “A failed state is a political body that has disintegrated to a point where basic conditions and responsibilities of a sovereign government no longer function properly. Likewise, when a nation weakens and its standard of living declines, it introduces the possibility of governmental collapse.” Europe is not quite there yet, but the writing is on the wall and it will get much worse before it gets better again.

  2. While the idea of the European Union might have been good at the outset, the undemocratic bureaucracy and the neoliberalism as exhibited in the destruction of Greece show that the Union has degenerated into a mere construct for financial and corporate plunder. Meanwhile, the Union’s foreign policy has also been exposed as a sort of quisling regime operating on behalf of yankee interests as the author indicates. As such it needs to be eliminated for Europe to regain its self-determination.

  4. Mr Trump has said America should no longer pay for the defense of Europe. He should say that America should no longer pay for the occupation of Europe. A distinction without a difference I suppose since he has called for the repatriation of legions from Germany and Japan. No wonder imperial Washington hates him. He is an anti-imperialist. “You can’t have a country without borders” says Mr. Trump. The whole point of “globalism” is to transfer the sovereignty of Nations to the international monopolist corporations. Open borders are necessary for the new Feudalism. As are “free” trade and the privatization of everything. Both NATO and the EU are imperial projects that are obsolete considering the steep decline and immanent collapse of the Anglo/Zio Empire. America and Europe both need regime change. This will have to be done from the inside by the former citizens, now subjects, of the Atlantic alliance.

    Kosher slaughter is actually banned in several EU countries. Wearing a yarmulka is banned by the same law in France that bans headscarves in schools. Zionists can’t plug all the cracks in the walls!

    Russia is not Europe’s true enemy. That enemy is Islam. Allowing muslims to come to Europe, through one means or another, was the greatest mistake in all of European history. This epic fail could break Europe. The elites largely don’t care since they live in rich protected neighborhoods and are well insulated from the consequences of their actions.

    Another brilliant paragraph by Saker. For example, the Grey Wolves (Turkish Nazi-like paramilitaries) are the strongest in Germany of any country except Turkey itself.

    The above is purely due to corruption. The EU has always been terribly corrupt, but the Europeans are only now paying the real price. And it will get much, much worse. Does anyone truly think that when the EU falls apart things will get any better for individual countries? Will corruption somehow suddenly disappear, will the nurturing of terrorism by the old imperialists suddenly stop?

  11. UCK terrorists were firstly declared terrorists, then the drug money made them nurtured in Switzerland, Germany and the US. Then the US, UK, France and German media called them the freedom fighters when they were blowing up the Serbian civilians and police. From terrorists to freedom fighters over the road paved by drug money paid to the European politicians and media. Now that is true US and EU corruption. How hard would be to transform ISIS into freedom fighters? It would probably take only a couple of hundred million in pay outs.

    Besides, when the terrorists hit the West, this is usually for internal political reasons, to give more power and control to those already in charge of “protection”. A kind of reward for doing a piss-poor job.

  12. Here’s to the successful conclusion of the Second World War! Now will Europeans west of the Danube finally understand that they lost?

    They exchanged a defeat – under honorable conditions and a light military footprint – for enslavement, not only of their nations to military occupation, but their minds, their spirituality, their cultural lives, and the simple freedom to be left alone – to the NATO beast.

    But Orthodox Russia is risen! The last, best hope for humanity!

    Pointless, idiotic, and unconscientious towards Russians. Not only will this never happen in any Western country for the victims of a terrorist attack in Russia, as The Saker correctly notes, but this action will only be written off as the Kremlin pandering to Europe.

    It is the equivalent of those people who put drape a French/Belgian flag over their Facebook avatars but one done at the state level.

  17. There is one core reason for the Belgian attacks. The rest are barely relevant issues which you are tying to this in order to push your own agenda. Not that I blame you though. I sympathise with them. Anyway, that issue is demographic transformation. Almost half of military age men in Brussels are Muslims. Is there anywhere with so many Muslims that non Muslim minorities aren’t regularly subjected to violence? Or where the law is not used to significantly oppress non Muslims?

  18. “Does anyone truly think that when the EU falls apart things will get any better for individual countries?”

    They might. When countries are able to exercise sovereignty over their borders and fiscal policies, and are forced to compete with other European countries, some may take steps to perpetuate their nations. We are already seeing this with Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic. Even France may awake from its stupor, while the self-hating, feckless states like Germany, Belgium, and Sweden will continue on their path toward oblivion.

    The cheap labor lobby have been importing millions of low IQ people who will always be stuck at the bottom of the pile.

    They get bitter and indulge in crime. The Muslim ones sometimes switch to jihadism later.

    It will clearly get much worse.

    If the EU breaks up with the same national elites in place then it clearly won’t get better but I’d assume if the EU breaks up that would involve a dramatic political sweep in some countries at least in which case yes it would get better.

    Corruption in northern Europe would drop back to its original level as corruption there is partly a result of the EU.

  21. Saker, just like Israeli hasbara goons, know how to whitewash Russian terrorism. In the 1990s, who terrorized and destroyed a Muslim country of Chechnya while the Zionist-controlled European Union, the US and Israel cheered Putin for ethnic-cleansing of Muslims within Russian empire.

    “Chechnya sides more with Turkey-Israel, though Tehran is still hoping to win it over. (In the crazy-quilt pattern of these matters, a leading Chechen figure, Khoj-Ahmed Noukhaev, has asserted that his sympathies are “with the small Jewish nation” against the Arabs; and Chechnya’s defense minister happens to be a Jordanian national and former military officer),” wrote one of the top Jewish Islamophobe Dr. Daniel Pipes in November 1998.

    In October 2010 – the leader of the Islamic Emirate of the Caucasus (IEC), Emir Doku Abu Usman, had blamed foreign Zionists trying to divide Chechen resistance as they’re doing in Palestine, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Lebanon and other places.

    One person whose name keeps popping up for sabotaging the Chechen resistance for his personal gains, is – Russian multi-billionaire Jewish media tycon and politician Boris Abramovich Berezovsky (born 1946), a critic of Russia’s ironman Vladmir Putin. Boris is wanted for arrest in both Russia and Brazil. Boris was a close friend of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned with a lethal dose of radioactive Polonium-210 in a London sushi bar. Russian author, Paul Klebnikov has called Boris Berezovsky “Godfather of the Kremlin” in his 2000 book by the same name. Currently, Boris is reportedly backing the exiled Chechen politician Ahmed Zakayev, currently living in Britain….

    I would not say that the EU has had “let them all in” policy. As a nice, educated middle class person from say Argentina, Kazakhstan, India or China it is really hard to get into Europe. Also as poor Indian or Chinese it is practically impossible to get there. The only people who easily get into Europe are muslims from the MENA region using either the asylum strategy or the gigantic ethnic networks already existing in west european countries and black men from countries in West Africa or the Caribbean using the fact that European women are very much attracted to them and are happy to give them the right to settle by marrying them.

  27. NATO is a typical example of an organization that has outlived it’s original function, and instead of adapting to new circumstances, now exists solely to perpetuate it’s own structure. It repeats the ancient rituals, such as positioning forces and materiel to repel Soviet attack. The current Russia has approximately the same likelihood of invading Europe as Canada has of invading the US, but NATO is still the scanning the horizon for swarms of T-90s pouring through the Fulda gap, while their native populations are being displaced by invaders from the south.
    In the US the military actually does have a plan filed away for fighting a war with Canada, but tens of millions of invaders have swarmed across the opposite border from Canada and occupy growing regions of the US.

I was very disappointed to see that the EU anti-Russian resolution was endorsed by all 28 members. So, Hungary as well. But I guess the financial and other pressures that the Europe-destroying traitors in the West are able to exert can prove too much even for Viktor Orban.

    Drug dealing is not “petty crime.”

    Where I live, in the western US, poor and middle class whites’ sense of oppression is preyed on by Mexican drug cartels. Even more upscale whites are turning to heroin.

    These activities saturate every level and niche of society. Their intent is to make money and get power preying on vulnerabilities or exploiting strengths. I have encountered strong white men in infrastructure trades who use heroin or methamphetamine to cope with absolutely unreasonable work schedules and conditions. I have encountered “soccer moms” destroyed by heroin and meth use.

    This chemical warfare is more like terrorism than not. Anyone involved is absolutely involved. There is no “petty” to it.

  37. Agreed, one thing that I suspect drives drug use among those in certain very demanding trades is as you say the unreasonable schedules and conditions. Far too many Americans are being squeezed at work in various ways and the only way to cope is via drugging legal or illegal.

    The drugging is so bad in some trades it’s a open joke that guys who pull down six figures end up blowing most of it on drugs.

    This problem didn’t exist in the 70′s or even 80′s, at least not to the extent it is today. But back then jobs were still plentiful, paid decently and had decent benefits. All of which are gone today unless you get a government gig.

    As for heroin use and production. Well I blame the USG for not stopping opium production in Afghanistan, which under U.S. controlled grew to record harvests. I have yet to read a intelligent explanation as to why we let a bunch of Muszzie farmers keep growing a crop we could have wiped out overnight by spraying a herbicide

I remember quite clearly: The American journalist-class, led by the NYT, portrayed the Chechens as noble resistance fighters, and Putin and his followers as power-hungry cynics who used the morally legitimate Chechen insurgency as an excuse to install a tyrannical, fascistic regime. Some in the U.S.A. even published editorials warning of Putin’s insincerity. Russia is not the target of terror, they said, but of a legitimate movement for Chechen self-determination. And, they said, any terror attacks in Russia were staged by the Russians themselves, as a pretext for consolidating central government power.
    Bossel, go back to working the phones for Hillary.

  46. In no way poetic but still some justice: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/checkpoint/wp/2016/03/22/nato-headquarters-just-a-few-miles-from-brussels-attacks-boosts-alert-status/
    “NATO headquarters, just a few miles from Brussels attacks, boosts alert status” Jens Stoltenberg, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, and other Breedloves cannot help themselves but parroting Bush the lesser re “our freedoms.”
    Time for the brass to search for some lost memories about their deeds in Iraq, Libya, and Syria.

  47. Muslims are notoriously “history challenged”.

  48. If you’re talking about Chechen – they’re not Wahhabis. They belongs to Sufism.

    If you’re talking about Moscow Metro Bombing – According to Israel Shamir, that was an Israeli Mossad’s false flag operation to demonize Chechen freedom fighters.

    If you’re talking about Moscow Airport Bombing – it was committed by friends of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko and his Jewish handler, Jewish billionaire Boris Abramovich Berezovsky.

  49. The “broadly speaking” idiot from the State Department was asked about the victory over ISIS in Palmira: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxs7yog_CjM Embarrassing.
    His name is Mark Toner, btw.

  50. ..don’t see how we can criticize ‘Europeans’ for information gleaned from media that is nearly 100% non-European owned. Most of it’s BS and the rest is presented without jewish supremacism as the obvious context.. .useless….or worse…

  51. The Germans are “enlightened”. They are creating pamphlets to instruct the “refugees” and Muslims on the right way to have sex with German women.. I think I’ll disassociate from them soon and I won’t even lose any sleep over it..

  52. The T.A.M.I. Show!!!

  53. The Chechen wars occurred when I was in middle school, and I distinctly recall being shown news editorials in the classroom wherein US journalists embedded on the Chechen side presented them as freedom fighters in a just cause. If I recall correctly it was Lisa Ling, who was then working for Channel One News.

  54. >>> The park was crowded because Christians are celebrating Easter

    Rehmat couldn’t believe his eyes when we revived our aboriginal language (Hebrew), and made it the Sovereign in its indigenous place.

    So most likely, he doesn’t believe that we will eventually fill up Judea & Samaria with Pakistani Christians….. their religion is indigenous to those two districts.

  55. But back then jobs were still plentiful, paid decently and had decent benefits. All of which are gone today unless you get a government gig.

    I have a government gig, and trust me, it’s not the pleasure cruise people assume it to be.

    Yes, the benefits are nice. No, the pay is not. And the AA/PC/Fem-lib culture is more firmly in place there than anywhere in the private sector. Your boss in a government office is likely to be a purely quota-promoted incompetent whose fecklessness turns the entire place into a leaderless goat rope. On the other hand, I am somewhat heartened by the fact that there are so many hardworking and self-sacrificing people who struggle daily to make the basic functions of government work. By and large, my fellow USG drones have been the best bunch of coworkers I’ve ever had. They need and deserve better management, though.

  56. Federica Mogherini sobbing….

    Judas Freaking Priest. So ISIS blows up a bunch of people in Brussels, and here we have what amounts to the EU’s own (female) chief security officer crying about how we need to reach out to the the Religion of Peace. If this isn’t absurdity on steroids, I don’t know what is. I hope this video will be around long enough to show future generations exactly what liberalism, feminism, and progressive ideology has wrought.

    Yep, you’re right. It’s from the TAMI show in 1964 like you said. Sadly, I hadn’t been born yet to witness this Epic performance by Mr. Brown live like you did, but I sure wish I had.

    I don’t know what the hell this crap is that they’re doin nowadays in the mainstream and have the nerve to call entertainment and music, but THAT is how a crowd should be entertained.

    Epic.

    But you can’t have a second or third generation without a first one, so ultimately you have to call the whole issue of immigration a bust.

  59. […] “The Writing Is on the Wall for the European Union”  “A Stolen Europe”  It is remarkable that there appears to be no common sense critique of Europe from inside Europe (The Saker lives in Florida).  Lots and lots of haters and fascists, but no native European ideas on how not to make things worse.

    This is neither true for ordinary people, but even not for all official politicians in Germany. All these terror attacks in Russia were followed by condolations and flowers at the Russian embassy in Berlin.

    These organised indifferent voices are concentrated in transatlantic networks and especially provocative among transatlantic journalists.

    I would not say that the EU has had “let them all in” policy.

    The EU has had a let them all in policy for years but the individual nations still controlled their own immigration policies.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/7653846.stm

    Merkel’s stunt provided the crisis necessary for the EU to take over national immigration policy for the whole EU – as no doubt was the intent.

    The EU’s policy is the same as the UN’s and all the other globalist factions: replacement migration.

    Make that replacement migration of white nations, not the black, brown or yellow ones. And yes the UN is the original villain here. Canada opened its doors a bit to the third world in 1962 largely under pressure from the UN. We should have withdrawn from this anti-west organization.

  63. Lmao. The attack was at a theatre. Not a movie theatre aka cinema. An actual theatre with a stage and live performers.

  64. [All caps in comments is shouting. Stop shouting or expect to see your comments summarily trashed.]

    Europe you got what is coming to you. None of your men are MEN at all. Sissified, feminine men, unable to defend yourselves or your country. Now watch as your women are raped and your land burns. TELL YOU HOW TO TAKE A LITTLE TEXAN TO THIS PROBLEM.
    GRAB A FREAKING BASEBALL BAT, OR A PIPE OR A FREAKING ROCK AND BEAT the LIVING HELL OUT OF THESE MONKEYS. CREATE GANGS OF PISSED OFF WHITE MEN AND KILL THEM. NOBODY WILL MISS A FEW DEAD APES. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. FREAKING SLAUGHTER the SOBs. DAMN IT, I AM TIRED OF HAVING TO BABYSIT YOU IDIOTS. YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO!

    If one knows true history and political economy and the reality of most republics around the world. Then they would know the general direction for the western republics after the end of the cold war would be third world chaos. In short we entering a kind of dark age that will not end until political economy is straight enough again someday, that day can be many decades into the future , can be a hundred years or more. Modern communications have been a partial replacement of positive political force for the west but so far not enough, and only increased the rate of revolution. The elites’s games are going to catch all of Europe on fire and maybe the world. For instance the last straw for succession movements were furthered by harsh austerity on the ukranians via banker loans, that forgotten history was the final trigger that instantly ca used sucession.

    As for the elites and their lackeys.

    You can’t fix stupid.

    You can’t argue with it either.

    To the elites everyone is a terrorist or potential terrorist, any positive counter movements will be crushed, this will further the chaos….

  66. By your definition, Russia is a failed state. I would agree with that assessment, but not for the reasons you give. It’s more along the line of why Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union were failed states.

  67. Reheat, Russians would do well to move all Muslims out of Russia proper, and eventually out if the Russian federation entirely. No non-Muslim, Russian or otherwise, is ever safe, respected, and free where Muslims gain the numbers in a neighborhood, a city, a country.

    Russia was right to deport the Tatars en masse, for example, and it never should have let them return to Crimea.

    The rest of your fellow pedophile-worshippers should be removed from Russia too, and that includes Chechnya, Dagestan, and the rest of the Caucasus.

  68. A bit off-topic, I spotted this blog post about a possible Sweden’s future (will Sweden avoid the fate of the rest of Europe as described in Tom Kratman’s dystopian novel Caliphate?) and in case if it’s been deleted, it’s also archived at http://archive.is/htLXq

    Someone lost the plot.

  70. Actually it was a “Texan man” – coward and ignoramus (but born with a silver spoon) – that had initiated the US actions that led to the multitude of desperate Middle Easterners running for cover to Europe. It would be great if American citizenry was served in high offices by the real patriots and not by the opportunists looking for favors from persons with dual-citizenship. And why did the US need these wars in the Middle East, which cost some $3 trillion (at least) for the US citizenry and which have destroyed the formerly functioning Middle Eastern states?

  71. Sack the maudlin wretch and put Martin McGuinness in charge.
    Proven track record at This Sort Of Thing. Dab hand at for instance, obtaining confessions, I believe.

  72. A whit described the purpose of NATO at its inception was “to keep Russia out ; Americans in and to keep Germans down”. Not much has changed.

  73. It was never a good idea.
    Layer after layer after layer of government, each one further removed from the people is horrific.

    I am in favor of a return to the city state.

    The Washington Consensus Dream Comes True.

    The breakup of the European Union and the breakdown of European societies.

    Who could ask for more?

    One could ask for war between European states and Russia, with the US the principal armaments supplier, while remaining unscathed as they cry all the way to the bank.

    Not if but when?

  75. Wrong.
    Of course islam is the enemy ! but only because we have abandoned our duty to evangelise muslims and free them from their mental chains.
    Our real enemy are those who have knowingly opened up our borders in the hope that this would accelerate the destruction of our Christian culture and civilization: cultural Marxists of various ilk and the anglozionist empire.
