Not getting the agreement on NATO expansion in writing is the stupidest thing Russia ever did in its thousands of years long history.

I think ZOG still would have violated it. But at least they would have had a piece of paper to wave around.

RT:

In the 1990s, NATO promised Russia that the US-led military bloc would not move “an inch to the east,” but this turned out to be a “vehement” and “blatant” lie, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin insisted on Thursday.

Speaking to journalists at his annual end-of-year press conference, the President claimed that Russia was cheated by the West, which broke its verbal agreements not to admit former Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries into NATO following the fall of the USSR.“Now look at what happened. They cheated us. Vehemently. Blatantly. NATO is expanding. They’re in Poland. They have offensive weapons there. That’s what I’m talking about,” Putin explained.

“Now they’re saying that they will have Ukraine as well. This means they will deploy their weapons there, even if it’s not officially part of NATO.”

According to the President, it is now up to the US-led bloc to come up with guarantees for Russia “immediately,” instead of continuously talking about it “for decades.”

Putin also slammed the West for years of attempting to undermine and break up his country, stating that NATO countries should have instead “treated Russia as an ally” and “tried to strengthen Russia.”

The USSR doesn’t exist anymore.

Russia is still reeling from problems caused by the collapse of the USSR when under Yeltsin, the Jews from New York sent in pallets of cash to buy up property at rates that made zero sense because the country didn’t have a market until the day before.

They have all kinds of problems.

The last thing on Putin’s mind is invading Europe.

But these Jews – they just won’t ever leave you alone.

They come at you.

Trust me, please – I know.

The Jews will come at you.

NATO was supposed to fight communism, then it abruptly transformed into an engine of global domination.

The American people should have complained about this.

Russia was never a threat. Frankly, after WWII, the USSR was not a threat. But that’s a whole other issue.

As Christians, we should have done something about these Jews.

Now that we’re not Christians, what are we going to do?

Just die.

Just be sadistically tortured, humiliated, and then die.

That’s all.

We can only pray for the last Christian leader.

And we can hope.

We can hope.

    the Romans who crushed and dispersed the Jews in their day, were decidedly not Christians

    the National Socialists of Germany, were not motivated by Christianity, but by blood, soil and honor

    Today, as ZOG is triumphantly ascendant, and white Americans and Europeans are being marginalized, stigmatized, colonized and brutalized by conquering hoards of Africans and Muslims and everybody else, I’m reminded of the Visigoths, who as Pagans, routinely cleaned Rome’s clock with their vigor and proud Pagan Gods- to steel their resolve for glorious battle.

    Alaric – sacker of Rome

    But then once the Visigoths had been force-converted to Christianity, with a God of appeasement and meekness, soon the treacherous Jews of the Visigoth kingdom had opened the gates of Spain to depraved African, Moorish domination and abject slavery for centuries. (I guess that’s what they do, eh)

    But, then there came a different type of Christianity ~ of Saint Isabella, that didn’t preach living on your knees, but rather taking to the sword, and flaying the defilers from your eternal lands.

    Where is that kind of Christian these days?

    I remember how optimistic I felt when the Berlin Wall came down.

    Then the West started looting Russia and began its endless series of wars.

    I was a bit slow on the uptake, having considered NATO intervention in Yugoslavia to be justified. But I woke up with Afghanistan and Iraq and i realise now that no post-1991 war was justified. And certainly not the ones that dismantled Yugoslavia for globalism and the EU.

That the Russians will react shouldn’t come as a surprise. What’s a surprise is that they haven’t been more active previously. Perhaps they’ve built up to where the balance of power favors them and they can now challenge the aggression aimed at them. The constant pushing will have to come to an end one way or another.

    The Spanish were crazy Catholics. Even before 1492 and Isabella La Catolica, various Spanish rulers both of Aragon and Castile insisted on offering conversion to the Jews before kicking them out. You would never have had the crypto-Jewish phenomenon (or to a lesser degree) in the 1400-1700s if Spanish rulers just made them leave. Catholics (today) who would be in favor of conversion argue that some of the greatest RC saints come from conversos -Teresa de Avila & Juan de la Cruz (John of the Cross). OK true enough, but then you had the Jesuit order that was infiltrated by conversos, and conversos gained prestige once they outwardly became RC. Some truly converted, but it was an act to a great part. I don’t blame the Jews, I blame the Catholics for their own stupidity all through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The Jews were looking out for their own interests as they do very well.

China is flush with cash and has work projects all over Africa and other parts of the world and can help these countries. Maybe Cuba would like to have nuclear missiles stationed in their country again, or maybe Mexico would like to do that. China may now be able to offer these countries more than the USA can and Russia is said to have fantastic military hardware.

No. What gave NATO the unilateral right to intervene in the civil war and unrest of a neutral country that had done it no harm? For 78 days American warplanes bombed Serbia.

  11. I put much of the blame on Trump for this increasingly dangerous situation. He was elected to change the course of U.S. “foreign policy” so as to prevent an eventual military conflict with Russia and/or China but instead he betrayed us all and made things worse. From a foreign policy perspective, there’s been a seamless transition of a monotonically increasing danger of WW3 from Obama to Trump to Biden.

    The Visigoths who sacked Rome in 410AD were Arian Christians. The pagan Visigoths were chased out of Eastern Europe by the Huns. It was after their conversion to Christianity in the late 4th century that they began to conquer. Maybe just a coincidence, but Alaric was a baptized Christian.

The ADL represents the ultimate psychopaths.

    The Dangerous Alliance of Rothschild and the Vatican of Francis
    http://www.williamengdahl.com/englishNEO22Dec2020.php

    [MORE]

    ”The Rothschild venture with the Vatican at this point, in addition to co-founder Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, includes hand-picked money moguls and their select foundations who pompously call themselves the “Guardians.”’

    ”The Guardian member list includes Rajiv Shah, the CEO of the Rockefeller Foundation, and former partner of the Gates Foundation’s AGRA scam to introduce GMO seeds in Africa. The Rockefeller Foundation has been involved in promoting a pandemic “lockdown” since 2010, and is a core part of the WEF Great Reset agenda.”

    ”Rothschild’s Guardians also include Darren Walker the CEO of the Ford Foundation. Those two foundations, Ford and Rockefeller, have done more to shape an imperial American foreign policy than even the US State Department or CIA, including the funding of the failed Green Revolution in India and Mexico, and the creation by Rockefeller funds of GMO crops.”

    ”The head of DuPont, a GMO giant and chemicals group is another Guardian as well as scandal-ridden vaccine and drug companies, Merck and Johnson & Johnson. Merck lied about the risks of its arthritis drug Vioxx until more than 55,000 users died of heart attacks.”

    ”Other Guardians include CEOs of Visa, Mastercard, Bank of America, Allianz insurance, BP. In 2016 Visa along with USAID were behind the catastrophic Modi experiment to introduce a cashless economy in India.”

    ”Notable also is Guardian Mark Carney, former Bank of England head and also advocate of cashless digital central bank currencies to replace the dollar. Carney is now United Nations Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance.”

    ”Carney is also a Board member of the Davos World Economic Forum, the public promoter of the Global Reset of capitalism to impose the dystopian Agenda 2030 “sustainable” economy. In fact several of Rothschild’s Guardians are on the WEF Board, including billionaire Marc Benioff,”

    ”Other Guardians of the inclusive capitalism transformation include the head of Bank of America, which bank was sued by the US Government for fraud connected with the 2008 US subprime mortgage crisis, as well as for laundering money for the deadly Mexican drug cartels and Russian organized crime. The select Guardian list also includes Marcie Frost, the controversial head of CalPERS, the huge fraud-ridden California state pension fund managing over \$360 billion.”

    ”The WEF strategy, pushed also by WEF board members like Larry Fink of BlackRock, reward companies that they deem “socially responsible.” This is the key to the inclusive capitalism agenda of not just Rothschild’s inclusive capitalism Guardians, but also the WEF.”

    ”Ironically, or maybe not, Pope Francis, the partner chosen to give Rothschild’s group of mega-capitalists “moral” credibility, is himself embroiled in what could be the largest financial scandals, fraud and misuse of church funds in the modern history of the Vatican. That, despite the fact Pope.”

    ”The unravelling scandal revolves around now-disgraced Cardinal Angelo Becciu who until 2018 was de facto chief-of-staff to the Pope and regular confidante. Becciu was Substitute for General Affairs in the Secretariat of State, a key position in the Roman Curia until June, 2018 when the pope elevated him to Cardinal, ironically enough, responsible for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. Becciu, clearly no saint, was able to invest hundreds of millions even billions over years of Church funds, including donations for the poor in Peter’s Pence, into projects he chose with a former banker from Credit Suisse. Projects included €150 million share in a luxury London real estate complex and \$1.1 million into a film, Rocketman, about the life of Elton John. That comes to light as the ongoing Vatican child sex scandals caused Pope Francis to defrock Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, the first Cardinal to fall in the Church’s deep sexual abuse charges.

    Italian press reports that the Pope knew about the dubious investments of Becciu and even praised them before the depth of the scandals broke. In November, 2020 Italian police raided the residence of Becciu’s former Vatican accountant and found €600,000 in cash and evidence the Vatican employee received \$15 million in fake invoicing over years.

    With a background like this, the new Council for Inclusive Capitalism with the Vatican of Lynn de Rothschild warrants close scrutiny as they clearly plan big things along with Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum to “reform” the world economy, and it won’t be nice or moral we can be sure.”

    Meanwhile, le based Republican kneels at the wailing walls, increase immigration, cracks down harder on white advocacy, and gets on their knees for Israel.

    LOCK STEP

    A world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen pushback

    In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain — originating from wild geese — was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months, the majority of them healthy young adults. The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.

    The pandemic blanketed the planet — though disproportionate numbers died in Africa, Southeast Asia, and Central America, where the virus spread like wildfire in the absence of official containment protocols. But even in developed countries, containment was a challenge. The United States’s initial policy of “strongly discouraging” citizens from flying proved deadly in its leniency, accelerating the spread of the virus not just within the U.S. but across borders. However, a few countries did fare better — China in particular. The Chinese government’s quick imposition and enforcement of mandatory quarantine for all citizens, as well as its instant and near-hermetic sealing off of all borders, saved millions of lives, stopping the spread of the virus far earlier than in other countries and enabling a swifter post- pandemic recovery.

    China’s government was not the only one that took extreme measures to protect its citizens from risk and exposure. During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets. Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified. In order to protect themselves from the spread of increasingly global problems — from pandemics and transnational terrorism to environmental crises and rising poverty — leaders around the world took a firmer grip on power.

    Unfortunately, there are none that matter which could conceivably leave the Anglo-American death-grip and join Russia+China. And the ones that don’t matter — don’t carry any weight to matter.

    In my estimation, the only country that could fill that role and which could shake** the foundations of Anglo-American world hegemony is France. Under De Gaul, France was an independent country. But it has been totally neutered since De Gaul left the stage. France even cancelled the €1.2bn order a while back for two Mistral amphibious landing ships* that Russia had ordered to please her A-A Masters, but that wasn’t enough: Anglo-Americans recently screwed France again (e.g submarine order for Australia). And to piss on the prostrate French some more, US just got the Swiss to cancel their \$6 Billion order for French Rafale fighters and buy F-35s instead. Serves the slavish French right.

    Le Pen might take France out of Anglosphere if she becomes President, but I don’t think they will allow it.

    ___________________________________________________
    * Russia didn’t really need those ships, and ended up building her own. But I think Russia ordered it as a step to pry Frances out of the Anglo-American orbit, and move her closer to Russia. Of course, US saw what it was and pressured Paris to cancel it.

Westerners tend to think of China as a monolithic entity but it is not. Currently, Xi is struggling to maintain his position and retain power and not very successfully. He may need a small war to stay in place and staying in place is all that matters to him – the retirement plan is not too good.
    I suspect the “Russian conflict” thing is to support the excuse for trying to freeze the Euros to death or at least make as many ill as possible and make the general population more acquiescent to the whims of the their masters.

    Russians are trying to win more time.
    If they are to avoid the separation of Russia into 4 states – apart of the currently existing in the Federation – they need to follow Hitler‘s strategy. His priority was to avoid famine and scarcity in Germany, which provoked revolutions at the end of WW1. Germany was also under severe embargoes since day one, those ended with WW2. The well provided for Germans remained loyal till the end.
    Putin reads history and understands that. (((They))) do as well and try to throw Poles, Baltics, Ukros, Germans and many others against Russia, while not being affected, as in WW2.
    This is why Putin said „The next war is not going to be fought on Russian soil only“, hinting on USA, UK. If such war begins, Israel isn‘t going to be priority #1, so Iran, Iraq, Libya, Egypt and Syria will will have a chance for revenge. I hope (((they))) get that one as well.

    ” US just got the Swiss to cancel their \$6 Billion order for French Rafale fighters and buy F-35s instead.”

    Goes both ways… The United Arab Emirates just agreed to buy 80 French Rafale and froze negotiations for the F-35….

    The INF treaty prohibited “missile launchers” because it’s impossible to determine the warhead of each missile without disassembly. Russia often cited the violation when these large American missile bases were constructed in Poland and Romania. This is why the USA withdrew from the treaty. The US military claims these are anti-missile bases to deter Iran, even though Iran has no missiles that can reach central Europe, is not building any, and has no reason to foolishly attack Europe.

    On the other hand, these American missile bases use MK-41 launchers that can also launch nuclear armed cruise missiles now under development. No one knows what kind of missile warheads are mounted on these missiles except a few American Generals and a dozen American missile techs. And note the Americans began building these missile bases long before tensions about Ukraine arose.

    This is the same senseless provocation that led to the 1962 Cuban missile crisis that almost led to worldwide nuclear war.

    Thanks for the info: didn’t know.

    However:

    [On May 20, 2017, U.S. President Trump and Saudi Arabia’s Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud signed a series of letters of intent for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to purchase arms from the United States totaling US\$110 billion immediately,[1][2] and \$350 billion over 10 years.[3][4] The intended purchases include tanks, combat ships, missile defense systems, as well as radar, communications and cybersecurity technology. The transfer was widely seen as a counterbalance against the influence of Iran in the region[5][6] and a “significant” and “historic” expansion of United States relations with Saudi Arabia.[7][8][9][3][10] (from Wiki)

    Saudi order for French Rafale jets at \$19 Billion is no chump change: so France picked up some dough. Good for them. My (amateur) guess is Saudis decided to spread the Love, and have France in their corner too. And US most likely let it slide, because of the ginourmous Saudi order they have in the bag.

    Or maybe Saudis felt more comfortable with the older, proven technology of the Rafale vs the unknown, problem-plagued F-35. Who knows. One thing for sure: it’s a good business to be in.

    Besides, America has borders with the Ukraine, and naturally is interested in what goes on there.

    {Besides, America has borders with the Ukraine, ….}

    You are right of course, but you missed the rest: USA has (virtual) borders with pretty much all of the rest of the world, that’s why she has military bases in every corner of the world — to protect us, of course.

    Serbia was actually the good guy in that war. As usual the USA supports the wrong side. been doing this for more than a century now.

  50. @Avery

    Oh that’s the Saudis… I was talking about the United Arab Emirates… Part of the issue is the UAE doesn’t want to have an inferior weapons to the F35’s that Israel has… And also the US wants the UAE to cut off Huawei and China overall and the UAE refuses to.

    The Saudis as far as I know are not allowed to buy the F35 at all.

    Is there ANY Imperial lie that the Dullard of Ooze will not swallow, hook, line and sinker, then regurgitate? There was NEVER any dispute about the promise, until Western psychopaths and their insect-trolls began lying about it, ten or so years ago. NO Soviet leader would have survived a millisecond if he agreed to NATO expansion East.

    The destruction of Yugoslavia by NATO was my epiphany. When I realized that all I had believed about the altruism of the West was a lie, regurgitated ad infinitum by a subservient press corps and the corporate media. The scales fell from my eyes.

    If the rockets start raining, it will be Putin that starts it.

    So don’t make him do it, those missiles will rain on Britain and the USA as well as on NATO bases in the EU. Stop meddling and be safe.

  55. Russia was never a threat. Frankly, after WWII, the USSR was not a threat.

    The OSS, the forerunner of the CIA, recruited many German intelligence officers in the closing days of World War II. Hitler’s chief of intelligence, Reinhardt Gehlen, turned over Germany’s entire intelligence archives on Stalin to the U.S. Amazingly, an Act of Congress then made him a general in the U.S. Army. He continued working for his new country, gathering further military intelligence on the Soviet Union as a CIA senior advisor.

    Yet U.S. Army Intelligence had assessed in 1945 that the Soviet Union posed no military threat to the United States, having been severely mauled in its epic fight with Germany. Unfortunately the rival OSS got the ear of certain Republican congressmen and their view of the Soviet menace came to dominate the media and eventually the political discourse. Consider that this faction’s goal was not national defense so much as it was the creation of a wedge issue to split the reigning Democratic coalition. GOP strategists were determined to return to national power after twelve long years out in the cold, as the minority opposition party. And like most scare campaigns, the plan worked just fine, enabling war hero Ike to recapture the White House for them in 1952 despite his lack of civilian political experience.

    In a very real sense the forty year long Cold War that ensued was little more than a continuation of the Third Reich’s war against Soviet communism, initiated and maintained by a ruthless rivalry between American political parties jockeying for dominance of the home government. As justified as distrust of Stalin may have been for a smaller nation situated next door to Russia, it was an absurd course of action for a massive superpower on the other side of the planet, particularly against a close ally in the late struggle to stymie Germany’s emergence as a rival world power -and an existential threat to international capitalism.
