“The main issue is our clear position on the unacceptability of further NATO expansion to the East and the deployment of highly-destructive weapons that could threaten the territory of the Russian Federation.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov

Washington delivered a slap in the face to Moscow on Wednesday when U.S. ambassador John Sullivan provided a written response to Russia’s proposals for security guarantees. The missive was given to Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko who did not reveal the contents but passed them on to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov for analysis. Lavrov, in turn, issued a statement on Thursday morning confirming our worst suspicions that the Biden administration has shrugged off Russia’s reasonable demands choosing instead to intensify the provocations that are likely to trigger a war between the world’s two nuclear superpowers. This is an excerpt from an article at Tass News Agency:

“The United States and NATO don’t seem to have taken Russia’s concerns on security guarantees into account when drawing up responses to Moscow’s proposals, nor did they demonstrate any willingness to do so, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.

“The numerous statements that our colleagues made yesterday make it clear that as for the major aspects of the draft agreements that we earlier presented to other parties, we can’t say that they took our concerns into account or showed any readiness to take our concerns into consideration.” (Tass News Agency)

Peskov is right, on the core issues the US either issued no clear response or refused to comply. In effect, the US response was designed to look like Washington was honestly negotiating when in fact, they were merely reinforcing their original position. The US response is essentially a defense of Washington’s commitment to rule the world by force and to ignore the legitimate demands of weaker states to provide even minimal security for their people. If the US and NATO are allowed to pursue their present course of action, Russian cities and towns will be within 7 to 10 minutes of nuclear missiles located in nearby Romania and Poland. Russia’s are being asked to live with a nuclear dagger pointed at their throats. This is Biden’s idea of global security. Is it any wonder why Putin does not agree? Here’s part of what Lavrov said on Thursday:

“There is no positive reaction on the main issue in this document. The main issue is our clear position that further NATO expansion to the east and the deployment of strike weapons that could threaten the territory of the Russian Federation are unacceptable.”

Lavrov has summed it up perfectly. While Sullivan was delivering his response to Grushko, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg issued a statement saying the Alliance “will not compromise” on potential expansion into Ukraine, Georgia, and other former Soviet republics, as this clashes with the NATO’s principles.” Stoltenberg’s statement removes any doubt that NATO will not only continue its eastward expansion onto Russia’s doorstep, but feels thoroughly justified in doing so. As we noted earlier, NATO’s response confirms that Washington is still committed to its overarching plan to rule the world by force regardless of how ordinary people are impacted by the policy.

On Thursday morning, former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev reiterated the recently-verified claim that NATO’s eastward expansion violates the promises of US officials to Russia following the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

“They promised not to expand NATO, but didn’t keep their promise,” Medvedev said speaking with the Russian media. “They say that ‘we did not sign anything.’ But we all know well who and when granted to whom such promises, such assurances….. They failed to keep their promises. They are now encroaching on our state borders.”

The steady eastward movement of troops, the buildup of lethal military hardware, and the deployment of nuclear weapons all pose an existential threat to Russia that suffered horrific losses in World War 2. The Biden administration seems to believe their sinister plan is working since people in the west generally believe reports in the media that the fake threat of “Russian invasion” is an honest account of what is actually going on the ground. But there is no threat of a Russian invasion; the story was stitched together to divert attention from Russia’s security demands which are both reasonable and appropriate. Once again, the media is shaping a narrative to fit the policy which is the very description of state propaganda.

In an effort to further downplay the importance of Moscow’s requests, US officials characterized their written response not as “a formal document but a set of ideas for further discussion.” What this means is that Washington does not feel that that Russia is its equal so it does not feel required to enter into a treaty agreement with them. Keep in mind, this response does not in any way meet the basic requirements that were clearly outlined by Putin repeatedly in December when he said that Russia wanted a written, legally-biding treaty that could not be sloughed off by countries that prefer to conduct an impulsive, self-aggrandizing, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants foreign policy that has left great swathes of the Middle East and Central Asia in an utter shambles. Indeed, this may not be a “formal document”, but it is clear that there will be a formal document or there will be no agreement and no peace. The choice is Washington’s.

On the issue of nuclear missile sites in Poland and Romania, as well as, the development of military bases in Ukraine, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken indicated that Washington was still open to discussion.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that if Russia were to approach this seriously, and in a spirit of reciprocity, with the determination to enhance collective security for all of us, there are very positive things in this document that should be pursued,” he said.

“Positive things”, says Blinken?

There are no “positive things” in the American response. The response is a flagrant and contemptible rejection of Moscow’s core demands on NATO expansion and the deployment of nuclear missiles to locations on Russia’s border. To understand what a fraud the Biden administration is engaged in, please, take a look at this brief excerpt from the draft treaty that Russia presented to NATO and Washington.

The United States of America shall undertake to prevent further eastward expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and deny accession to the Alliance to the States of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The United States of America shall not establish military bases in the territory of the States of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics that are not members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, use their infrastructure for any military activities or develop bilateral military cooperation with them……

The Parties shall undertake not to deploy ground-launched intermediate-range and shorter-range missiles outside their national territories, as well as in the areas of their national territories, from which such weapons can attack targets in the national territory of the other Party.

Article 7

The Parties shall refrain from deploying nuclear weapons outside their national territories and return such weapons already deployed outside their national territories at the time of the entry into force of the Treaty to their national territories.” (“Treaty between the United States and the Russian Federation on Security Guarantees,” Official Russian State Document, December 17, 2021)

Is there anything ambiguous in the language of this document?

No, there isn’t.

The US was asked to respond in writing to these explicit demands. No one is in the slightest bit interested in Blinken’s vague pontifications on “positive things”. It’s completely irrelevant. What Putin wants to know is whether US nukes are going to remain 7 minutes flight-time from Moscow and whether a hostile foreign army is going to be hunkered down in nearby Ukraine. He wants to know whether Washington plans to put a gun to Russia’s head in order to increase its power in the region. That’s what he wants to know, and that’s what this foreign policy debacle is all about.

What Blinken’s response tells us is that the provocations are going to continue unabated whether they ignite a war or not. Even as we speak, the US is sending more lethal weaponry and troops to the Ukrainian theater while other NATO allies promise to assist in the effort. It is madness.

At the same time, President Joe Biden is threatening to impose “direct personal sanctions” on Putin if the Russian president takes action to defend the Russian-speaking people in East Ukraine. The threat was issued just hours after the State Department told Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov that he “would have to leave the US by April if Moscow fails to meet certain demands made by Washington.” While these may seem like trivial developments, the two incidents help to illustrate how relations between the two nations are fast deteriorating increasing the prospect of a tragic miscalculation that could precipitate a bloody and protracted conflagration.

  2. Russia must respond – sooner rather than later. I am sure Russia anticipated the arrogant response form NATO and have prepared accordingly. I wouldn’t give Ukraine, Poland or Romania a nickel for citizenship in their countries…and they can thank America and NATO for what will befall them.

    The big question is … what will Russia do? I’m not sure why it would not make sense to use their main economic weapon … begin cutting back on gas exports, maybe during a nice cold snap in Europe. That is pretty tough, but seems less likely to lead to a major war, than taking out military facilities with stand-off weapons, which is one alternative.

    US and western media are screaming that Russia is about to invade Ukraine. Russia denies it. What to believe? Is this all just hype serving as a smokescreen for something else? US has sent a minuscule token number of troops to some NATO countries, hardly evidencing any great concern. They’ve been sending plenty of weapons to the Ukrainian regime though. Perhaps they’ll munch popcorn watching Ukrainians and Russians die. There’s a certain lack of information regarding why this is taking place now. If Russia is indeed moving troops, weapons and logistics then why, did they find something out? Was the Ukrainian regime planning something and the Russians found out?

  7. Irony seems to play a large role in human affairs. It would be quite ironic if the (originally created) defensive minded NATO provoked the dread unwanted conflict as the aggressor.

    The old theory from 1949 to 1991 or so was that the Soviets would massively invade Europe (for some unspecified reason or need) through Germany using armored vehicles and infantry. NATO would provide the unified defensive effort to thwart that invasion. Once the USSR collapsed, NATO still needed an enemy to justify its’ existence and budget. The Middle East just wasn’t enough of a security threat, jihadists aside. So here we are, Cold War 2.0, and since Russia isn’t looking to escalate things, NATO has to.

    Both are true: Russia is ready to move on the Ukraine and the US wants this to happen without really getting involved.

    The US wants to distract from the coming economic crisis that will be caused by the Fed raising interest rates and thus crushing the stock market absent large bail-outs. A war in Europe will make for a great smokescreen if it happens timely. For this purpose the US needs that the Ukies set up some resistance over an extended period so it is sending weapons but the Ukies are recently having second thoughts, though it might be too late to avert the Russian invasion.

    The US and NATO are in no capacity for a conventional war with Russia in that theater (see so they are just trying to force the Ukies to fight and then capitalize the conflagration by putting more obstacles to the economically-driven push to improve relations between the EU and Russia.

    From the point of view of Russia, with record large reserves of foreign currency and gold, very little international debt, oil and gas prices increasing, largely successful substitution of crucial imports with domestic production, a growing business relation with affluent China, confident, well-organized, high morale armed forces that succeded in recent wars (2nd Chechen war, Georgia, Syria, Crimea and the Donbass), plus diplomatic-military operations that successfully defended Belarus and Kazakhstan, this might be the right time to assert herself and weather greacefully any economic sanctions thrown in her way.

    A lot can go wrong for both sides.

  16. We know that between bouts of dementia and hair sniffing spasms, Biden is not in control of much of anything. His handlers are. Forget about all this talk about Obama in the basement making all the real decision (I am not denying that is a possibility -but he has handlers too). You can say China this and China that. Russia and China are cozy and tight with each other. Although the Chinese want total control of US, they don’t want ta US blown to smithereens -won’t suit their purposes. Either the Russians take Biden out- more like sent to the Home for Demented Hair Sniffers (with the help of US military elements) or we continue bumbling down the road to a totalitarian future (we’ve already arrived in many aspects). The Banksters (the elite handlers) don’t really care if large portions of the US are taken out -as long as they have their hidey holes to escape to.But I think US and NATO are going to prance and mince and bellow some BS for a while just to make it look like they possess testicles of some variety (paper-mache ones at this point). Russia will get the Ukrainians to come to some sort of terms. And life will bumble on.

Maybe I overestimate Putin’s prowess, but I don’t believe that he’ll authorize anything other than a punitive venture, rather like the backhander he administered to Saakashvili when the latter thought he could seize a key road and tunnel in Ossetia. An occupation of the Ukraine would be a drag on the Russian economy and its military, and might ignite a sense of nationalism among the Ukrainians that has been notably absent due to the skein of dysfunctional Ukrainian regimes. The use of standoff weaponry would probably “encourager les autres” more effectively than an old-fashioned Soviet steamroller offensive. IF any such action is taken. What could the Xiden Cabal and Our Gallant NATO Allies do? More sanctions? More “serious consequences?”

    What would Putin hope to accomplish by invading the Ukraine? Seems like a big, unnecessary hassle for him, especially since much can go wrong. If the objective is to humiliate Washington, there are cheaper ways of doing so, by holding naval exercises (complete with missile launches) in the Gulf of Mexico for example. If US missile sites in Poland and Romania are a problem, why not deal with them directly? How does invading the Ukraine help??

    “The risk is really the Ukes attacking Donbas. Russia will be forced to respond.”

    Yes. Somehow, it’s as if Ukrainians residing in North America have been completely blinded to the reality of “Russia will be forced to respond”. Its nuts. I say to my friends, … if the government of the Ukraine is unable to protect the interests of the citizens of the Donbas region of the Ukraine, what is to become of those people? I ask: Do you expect that Russia will induce the immigration of all such Russian speakers in the Donbas, with fat juicy incentives, so as to vacate the area for more ethnic Ukrainians (as there is still huge resentment over the Holodomor and replacement of dead Ukrainians with emigrating Russians post-Holodomor, apparently)? They say … don’t be so crass. But what is it then? Why do they want Biden to shank Putin over the Ukraine …. what in heaven’s name do they think the Ukrainian people are going to get out of this lunacy? It’s still a puzzle to me.

    Meanwhile, by the looks of the Ukraine per capita GDP, as compared to neighbors, ….. still a basketcase, which doesn’t marry-up at all, in any way shape or form, to the Ukrainian people I know, who all tend to be very capable. I think the logical conclusion is that the western/Russian posturing, that has been going on for decades now, over the Ukraine, has been very bad for the people of the Ukraine, as it has bred ongoing corruption. It’s a big tragedy. If the west got out of the way, I believe that prospects for your average Ukrainian would almost immediately improve.

    Why can’t my Ukrainian friends understand that the Ukraine is just a pawn, a play-thing, a simple means to an ends, for the powers represented by the Biden admin? To think otherwise is a delusion. It’s just another geopolitical piece of the neoliberal puzzle (to the Biden admin).

    The distance from Warsaw to Moscow is 1,251 km = 777.3354 miles. Call it 777 miles.
    A hypersonic missile travelling at 5 times the speed of sound therefore travels 5 miles in one second. 777 miles divided by 5 equals 155 seconds of travel time or 2 minutes 35 seconds. Call it 3 minutes.

    This implies a hypersonic missile launched from the vicinity of Warsaw would impact Moscow less than 3 minutes after firing.

    This might make you feel all warm and cuddly if you are located in Warsaw but rest assured the citizens of Moscow will not share your enthusiasm. If you look at a map:,+Poland/moscow/@54.926654,32.5213371,5z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x471ecc669a869f01:0x72f0be2a88ead3fc!2m2!1d21.0122287!2d52.2296756!1m5!1m1!1s0x46b54afc73d4b0c9:0x3d44d6cc5757cf4c!2m2!1d37.6172999!2d55.755826!3e4

    You will observe that a firing position adjacent to Riga in Latvia would cut missile flight time in half. A launch from the Gulf of Finland would add perhaps 2 seconds to the missile flight time. A launch from the Black Sea near Odessa in Ukraine would be about the same, maybe five seconds tops.

    The best is yet to come. The speed of a hypersonic missile is such that it is likely to be unobserved, or the track rejected by, contemporary radar systems. This problem may be addressed by improved algorithms and similar technical improvements in PRF. But similar technical advance also offers the potential for hypersonic missiles that travel not at 5 times the speed of sound but at 10 to 20 times the speed of sound. Granted there exist technical barriers to such a development but remember 200 years ago the fastest way to get a missile to its destination was to send it by horse.

    None of these facts are being accurately reported in the MSM media. Even Mr Whtney is simply repeating nonsense obtained from other source.

    Once you look at the facts it becomes immediately clear that permitting the US to establish military positions adjacent to the Russian border is an existential issue for the RF.

    If I remember correctly, one of the arguments for the war in Iraq was “It is better to fight them over there than to wait and fight them here.” From the perspective of the average Russian it is better to fight them now rather than wait and permit them to destroy us later.

    And for those who would claim the US has no such intentions and is an honourable state I ask that you please remember the cackle of the Secretary of State “We came. We saw. He died.” or the fact that a man who provided evidence of US war crimes is being held near death in Belmarsh Prison at the behest of the same state found to have commited the war crimes.

  43. On Thursday morning, former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev reiterated the recently-verified claim that NATO’s eastward expansion violates the promises of US officials to Russia following the dissolution of the Soviet Union.


    “…the Biden administration has shrugged off Russia’s reasonable demands…”

    The fact that Russia’s primary argument now appears to be some variation of the shameless “they promised us” lie, cited above, only highlights how untenable its official position actually is in this controversy. Even more ludicrous is the extremely hypocritical whining about Russia’s purported security needs while its military continues to illegally occupy territory along the Baltic Sea, from which missiles directly threaten a substantial part of central Europe. It’s almost as if they are adopting the Israeli playbook in their latest disinformation campaign.

    Purportedly, during the so-called “Two-Plus-Four” negotiations in early 1990, pertaining to German re-unification, US secretary of state James Baker III verbally raised the talking point, that NATO troops would not expand farther into eastern Germany upon the evacuation of the USSR troops from there. Since none of this was part of the final agreement, such a pledge cannot be construed as a formal commitment.

    Obviously, nobody present at the talks anticipated developments that occurred in the Baltic region during subsequent years, so it would have been impossible to have made any generic promises in 1990 pertaining to contingencies in the distant future with regard to territory not subject to the negotiations. Note that Russia’s latest public demands, now being mischaracterized as “reasonable”, appear to be in blatant contradiction to a treaty between Russia and and NATO in 1997.

    Here are relevant quotes from a Wikipedia article on the issue:

    Treaty on the Final Settlement with Respect to Germany

    In 1997, NATO and Russia signed a treaty stating that each country had a sovereign right to seek alliances.[14]

    Some, like Eduard Shevardnadze, maintain that no commitment on NATO expansion was made during the discussions on German reunification.[15][16] Allegedly, the issue of expanding NATO into Central and Eastern European states was not on the agenda at that time, since all of them were Warsaw Pact members and most still had substantial Soviet military forces stationed on their soil,[17][18] and Gorbachev “did not even contemplate seeking a provision that would bar any other Warsaw Pact countries from eventually pursuing membership in NATO”.[16]

    Note, also, in the map embedded in the following Wikipedia article, that the alleged promise or pledge made by Baker has been kept, since no army installations now exist in that part of Germany that was vacated by Soviet troops.

    List of United States Army installations in Germany + Map

    The independence of three former Soviet Baltic states was not recognized by the USSR until September 1991. The USSR ceased to exist at the end of that year. It was not until August 31, 1994 that all Russian troops had evacuated Estonia and Latvia. They had left Poland and Lithuania a year earlier.

    However — and this is the crucial point — it then became evident that Russia failed to evacuate the Königsberg / Kaliningrad region, which they had been illegally occupying since 1945. The post-war Potsdam war conference did not permit that occupation, which violated the principle of not acquiring territory by force, subsequently affirmed by the United Nations, nor did Germany relinquish the territory to Russia by treaty. Unlike Crimea, that region was not ever a part of historical Russia prior to the war. This monumental blunder by Yeltsin, who allegedly demanded that Germany pay billions of dollars to Russia for what it were legally obliged to do, changed the dynamics of the region and thus prolonged the Cold War. Since Russia has no legitimate argument for remaining in its military enclave, it prefers not mention this topic at all.

    It is easy to see, when looking at a map, that Russian ground forces in that remaining military territory can easily connect with forces stationed in Belarus and cut off the three Baltic states from the rest of Europe. By failing to relinquish this illegally occupied territory Russia preserves the easy option of a future reconquest of the three states by invoking the R2P doctrine under a manufactured pretext involving the Russian minority population in these states, in the same manner as the US did in Grenada and Panama. Under these circumstances of having their security threatened by Russia, it is understandable that these small Baltic states wanted to join NATO, and it would have been irrational for NATO to have denied their requests.

    Currently there are even debates in Finland and Sweden about the prospect of developing stronger ties with NATO because these countries also feel threatened by Russia. The propagandist notion then, that Russia’s security is somehow threatened in the Baltic region when it is Russia that remains in the Königsberg/ Kaliningrad territory (located farther away from Russia that it is to Germany), is simply laughable and appeals to those dupes who do not know or bother to understand the historical realities.

    If Russia wants to relieve tensions and undertake serious efforts toward ending the Cold War, which it has been maintaining for decades in the Baltic region, it should finally begin discussions toward ending its long-running occupation instead of manufacturing transparent lies about some nebulous promises made more than thirty ago. After a transition period, during which Russia maintains good neighborly relations, those other countries in the immediate vicinity would begin to feel more secure and may eventually no longer perceive a need for NATO protection.

    The Ukrainian imbeciles could have peace and have the Donbas back. All they have to do is keep their word and adopt the Minsk Accords they agreed to do. The Donbas merely acquires the right to elect their own governors and wins some measure of home rule, but it remains a part of the sovereign nation of Ukraine, thereby operating under Ukraine foreign policies and trade agreements, etc. No, Ukraine will never get Crimea back and they could never win a war to suppress that former independent republic. So, Minsk 2 meets all their needs but they are too stupid to realise this. They are just chumps who will do everything that Uncle Sam tells them to. Why? Why do Tik Tok players lick public toilet bowls on a bet? Severe brain damage I would venture to say.


    Having prevented the Russian army from overthrowing the Ukranazi coup regime in 2014 and then having stopped the Donbass Republics from routing the Ukranazi coup regime military totally in 2015 – which would have caused the implosion of the Nazis even without any overt Russian intervention – Putin then went on to exacerbate the problem by forcing an impossible agreement on both the Ukranazi coup regime (which would be literally murdered by its own Nazis if it tried to implement it) and the Donbass Republics’ people (who would have to be forced to live under the same regime that had shelled their sons and fathers, sisters and daughters). Astonishingly unsurprisingly, this agreement was never taken as a serious settlement by either side. Also astonishingly unsurprisingly, the coup regime installed by Amerikastan is now being used as an anti Russian weapon by Amerikastan. What else did Putin expect? What else would the coup regime and its Amerikastani owners be expected to do, behave like normal people? Those of us with half a brain were already predicting in 2014 that this situation would arise where Russia would have to either launch a low cost intervention now or a very costly war later. Now it’s “later” and the websites we spoke out on banned us so we can’t even tell them “I told you so.”

    The Putin cult is a religious thing. Whatever Putin does, the cult cheers. The same people who attacked and continue to attack those of us who had wanted intervention in 2014 as “trolls” and commended Putin’s “restraint” will cheer if Putin continues to show “restraint” if the Ukranazi coup regime rolls over Donbass; they will equally cheer if Putin finally unleashes the Russian military and takes Kiev and Odessa. It’s like the Obamabots who worshipped the drone mongering war criminal who whatever he did could do no wrong.

    In the military field over Ukranazistan Russia has absolute escalation dominance. In the propaganda and provocation field however the Amerikastani Empire has total escalation dominance. Today there’s a lot of faffle on Twitter about Bidet warning Zelensky of an “imminent invasion” and a “Russian sack of Kiev”, and Zelensky begging Bidet to tone down the warmonger rhetoric. So let’s suppose the Ukranazi coup regime is getting cold feet and doesn’t want a war that will destroy it. So what? Its Amerikastani owners have enough “advisors” and CIA saboteurs in place to launch attacks on Donbass civilians and even cross border on Russian troops so as to force a reaction from Russia that even the Ukranazi coup regime doesn’t want. If that happens, what will Putin do? Let it go, because “Russia doesn’t want East Ukraine”?

    Basically the Ukranazi coup regime is going to get a war whether it likes it or not. Warshington has too much at stake.

    “What this means is that Washington does not feel that that Russia is its equal so it does not feel required to enter into a treaty agreement with them”.

    As I may have observed before, the Melian Dialogue of 2,438 years ago tells us everything we need to know about politics, war, and international relations.

    “[Y]ou know as well as we do that right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must”.

    The Russians believe that they are the USA’s equals in military power: each can destroy the other, but only at the cost of being annihilated itself. In a conventional war fought near Russia, it should be able to win decisively.

    As Russia believes itself to be the USA’s equal in power, it naturally seeks to negotiate a legal agreement (“right”).

    But the Americans hold the incorrect belief that they are superior in power, so they treat all diplomatic negotiations merely as a delaying tactic, and plan to impose themselves by violence.

    As far as I can see, this can lead to one of two outcomes.

    1. The USA gets its teeth broken and retreats into sullen isolationism and decline.

    2. The USA has a tantrum and launches a thermonuclear war, killing the whole human species.

    Medvedev’s words: ““We have no military alliance with the People’s Republic of China, and no one is striving for that….”

    Spoken like a true anglosphere ally. And I recall about five to seven years ago that Chinese leadership openly speculated about such an alliance, with the Russians quick to put cold water on the idea back then, too. The Chinese leadership would welcome such an alliance, I strongly suspect. But certain Russian elite voices clearly wish otherwise, it would appear.

    Russia has too many such voices. A Russian-Chinese military alliance would be critical in stopping NAZO/USA aspirations around the globe. Yet Russia speaks of Cuba and Venezuela in such terms, albeit very muted and tentative. I suspect there are many elites in Russia still pining for an alliance with the West.

    In other words, no one should waste any time unsure of who is the moving party here. Nor, as I’ve mentioned previously, whether it was a mistake for Gorbachev or successor Russian leadership to patiently wait for the right moment to tell the US and NATO what time it is.

War Hawks Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton are calling for blood, as is the Mainstream Media – except for Tucker Carlson. Rand Paul is about the only Senator with common sense. The citizens of America, frightened in their homes for the past two years by the Covid scam, have nowhere to turn with both political parties working against their best interests.

    “There will be a terrible end for the Germans should future generations stop paying Israel and world Jewry; then the German people will disappear from the earth.”
    (Edgar Bronfman, World Jewish League, to Foreign Minister of the Federal Republic of Germany Lothar de Maizière during his inaugural visit to New York, September 1990.)


    2 (mauled) + 4 (hyenas)

    The Two-plus-Four Treaty serves to deceive the German people about the actual unlawful/occupied status of the FRG.
    Two plus four stands for the two state-simulating occupation constructs FRG and GDR, which are by no means equal negotiating partners and also no legal successors of the German Reich.

    Forget about all this Henoch Cohn (aka Kohl) posturing:
    The envoys were merely informed of the treaty by the four contracting parties with the request that it be executed. The “treaty” can be seen as the final completion of the Versailles Dictate of Shame.

    About 10 years ago a last Versailles payment was transferred to Britain and only a few years ago Lavrov released the last German prisoner of war. (!)

    In a secret supplementary agreement to the further payments, the Four Powers agreed on continuing far-reaching occupation rights regarding an expanded FRG.
    See also Art. 120 GG

    The construct of the occupying rogue states supplemented or rewrote the continuing occupation law with their SHAEF legislation, which is why the treaty is sometimes referred to, not without irony, as the Basic Law of Foreign Policy.

    Even under this federal law – “federal” was and is completely undefined – international law ultimately applies, also because of the mere armistice, but only because the occupying power is also a signatory to the Hague Land Warfare Convention.

    It is in no way a vaild peace treaty. We are at war with 54 countries.
    The missing peace treaty, which then could be valid under international law, is still laid down in this Basic Law for the FRG, which was declared to be a constitution in violation of international law.

    International law, like occupation law, is above federal law, i.e. the Basic Law of the FRG.
    The enlarged FRG constitutes an occupation territory exclusively under Jewish-American and Israel influence.

    The number of U.S. Army personnel fluctuates around the 150,000 mark; fluctuating figures of 25 – 45,000 U.S. soldiers refer to actual combat readiness strength. Countless non-public and unlisted facilities must be added to the major well known public facilities, including especially those in East Germany.

    Austria also has broken its peace treaty with Russia. It is now erecting monuments to American war criminals/war crimes. Furthermore there are US-Army secret depots in closed, former military training areas etc. pp. Austria trains with Nato etc. pp.

  83. Annotation: “Bund”; re. Bundes-Republik, Bundesgesetze etc.

    Bund’s pirating structure in general:


    Much are “open” formulations in the Allies’ “Basic Law for the FRG”, where NOWHERE is defined, who or what “Bund” is – that is legally (here as there) a monstrosity unparalleled, that such an important term as „Bund“ (approx. „con-federation“; not „federation“ since the Länder are bound like a prisoner;
    Bund = bound or bondage) is not defined in the whole law.

    Is this supposed to be “incidental”?


    Many are suspecting, and it is evident, that Bund stands for Bnai Brith (BB exclusively homages Jews only as it did with Kohl and Merkel, but not Schröder, even so he tried with billions and billions of German bloodtax to be a good boy or goy. So, Putin took him in and helps for some real gassing for a change)

    Ref. “United Economic Territory“
    As a completely new entity of the occupation, it did not enter into the rights and obligations of the German Reich (BAG, May 21, 1958; AP § 16 No. 3 AOGÖ) since it did not at any time “even approximately” exercise all the functions which constitute a state administration and which would be comparable to those of the Reich.

    The BayVerfGH, 24.07.1963, VerfGH 16, 76 (86), assumes that the so-called United Economic Area has “no state character”;

    Apart from that, there is no „Bavarian Constitution“ – there is no original. The original (from 1946, when everybody was locked in resp. starved to death) cannot be found, etc. etc.

    Straits of Malacca are the key choke point for US Navy to blockade China or Japan. A rail link from N Korea through China and Russia to Europe gives Japan advantages too which is why it is being dangled as a carrot.

    If the barcode starts with 729 just leave it behind.

    There is nothing more terrifying for the Israel first uniparty and their ziospecialinterests owners than a potential right wing and/or Christian  boycott Israel movement. They can use low effort narratives and cuckservative plants to eradicate BDS, but a right wing/Christian boycott movement would be impervious to those counters.

    To see proof of how much the ziosubverters fear a boycott movement, watch the “The Lobby: USA” documentary. Here:

    Making goals of the movement to demand the removal of all Zio lobbies and subversion from the West would be a very effective tool against that particular type of subversion, and would lead zios to over reach in their Israel first efforts, which would only show more of the general public how nefarious their lobby and activities are.

    It would also have the controlled opposition cuckservatives in a situation that if they try to go against it, they unmask themselves as controlled opposition to the masses, and they can no longer claim that boycotting movements are Muslim or lefty. Make the movement anonymous and decentralized without any official hierarchy of organization (based only on individual calls to action, and the reasons why people should boycott), and you have a no loss, no cost weapon against the subversion that weakens the controlled oppo and thus allows the people to elect the people who truly represent them.

    It’s literally all upside and no cost strategy. They fear it, big time, to the point controlled oppo wants to make even more states make it illegal to boycott Israel.

I can’t see them leaving them in Poland and Romania, and their demand was also that they be removed from there. But they will start with Ukraine, attacking lesser weapons, and see what response that might draw. In that way they won’t be attacking a NATO country. But if nothing changes then, they will have no choice.

    This demand to NATO and The former US was an explanation to their own people of the perilous path they now feel they will have to take.

    That’s ahistorical. One chunk of Ukraine – Slobozhanschina with the center in Kharkiv – was Russian even before the unification of Ukraine with Russia starting with the beginning of the 17th century.

    The local language can be gleaned from the manuscripts of the philosopher Gregory Skovoroda. Any native Russian speaker will understand them easily.

    Later larger Novorossia were conquered by Russia by Cathrine the Great from the marauding Tatars and resetteled with both Great Russians and Ukrainians.

    Of course, there was a movement of people in the late Russian Empire and in the USSR. Lots of Ukrainians moved to Siberia and the Far East, including my ancestors. Some Russians settled in the Ukraine. For example, the Antonov Design Bureau was moved from Novosibirsk to Kyiv.

    P R U S S I A is the RUS in the Pruss.

    Prussia is Russia and Russia is Prussia, from the North Sea to Little Asia.
    Russia was methodically seperated from the true P through the Paul’s Kyrill & Method in the East und the other P(rick) of the Anti-Christ in the West. Peter, the West-Church and Paul, the East-Church; divide et impera.
    Today the main problem is the Jew’s West Curch with the Anti-Christ in its centre (Rome) and also having completely hijacked the Lutheran church. The Jew grinds his diamonds between his religions; very acute the further splitting of the orthodoxy in front of the holofraud now completly unhinged as pharmafraud under the coat of the flu.

    Kyrillic is not the natural Russian language. DEUS is Russian.
    Northman is split (DIVIDEETIMPERA) on the basis of Jewish scriptures on the back of a true Nazi (Nazarean) out of the Aryan Nazareth; an enlightened, shining, naturally crowned Nazi, which the evil cheat managed to mix and mingle with bits of the Edda’s Wehen – Veden, preserved by another Aryan branch, the Sikhs, in their Adi Grant.

    Bible-Christianity – the big cheat (Jew) out of spirituality on the back of many little truth hiding the big lie of a Jew Je sui sermoning on a mount of a fake love they unknwon, unnatural non-neighbour.

    The Krim is as Russian as can be. It is soaked with PRussian blood.

    East Prussia… the problem is not Russia, the problem is the Jew in Russia, the Jew in Europe, the Jew in the Americas, anywhere the Jew is a problem; Jew: „we are the splitters…“

    The general bastardization of the world, the mixing and mingling is only serving the mixers and minglers, not the mixed and mingled.

    There seems already a world government, including Russia; e.g. „Russia“ (not the Russian peoples), fully complying with the Big Pharmafraud and many other harmful globalisms.

    Is the mafia world government infighting over the spoils in the East and central Europe?

    Does the Jew Medvedev mean the hijacked flu when he states that the „Pandemic poses challenge for everyone, and can be contained only together“, or does he mean something else, like the power threatening „infodemic“ the Anti-Christ is whinging about today?

    ”The US/Canadian-backed coup in 2014 divided the Ukraine politically, geographically and linguistically”

    ”The Donbass region in the east broke from Kyiv’s control in a war that has left over 10,000 dead.”

    In response to the conflict in the east and Moscow seizing the predominately Russian Crimea, the US, Canada and Britain have spent lavishly building up the Ukrainian military.

    ”The agreement provides official support to Ukraine in the form of loans not exceeding £1.7 billion pounds, or the equivalent in US dollars [almost \$2.3 billion] or euros,” according to a handout from the parliamentary Information Department.”

    ”Speaking in parliament, Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Polishchuk said that “the provisions of the framework agreement provide for the implementation of investment projects on the purchase and joint production of two minehunters, including their delivery and maintenance.”

    ”He also noted that the deal will allow for “the joint construction of eight missile boats and frigates, the delivery and modernization of weapons on existing ships, consulting and technical support for the construction of naval infrastructure.”

    Babi Yar

    Babi Yar is a work of fiction. It never happened. A British reconnaissance Spitfire took pictures of that wood 3 days after the alleged massacre. There were no truck marks or any soil disturbance on the pictures. Later, no one ever found graves or human remains. It is another Soviet/Jewish lie – like so many others.

    Of course, the Soviets were quick to exploit this fake story and produce photos of entirely different places and events. Here is some of this fake news.

    Today, if an investigation were made of this location, the trench in the photo would not be found. It is a photo of something else. Possibly what the Bolsheviks did routinely. Don’t forget that the Soviets blamed the Katyn Massacres on the Germans.

    The World Continent (Eurasia) is strengthening while the Island Continent (the Americas) is receding back to its more accustomed position historically, the periphery.

    Americans should not only accept, but welcome, this state of affairs.

    For 17 years I lived on either end of Eurasia: Europe 7 years, Asia 10 . Every time I came back to the USA, I was struck by America’s enviable circumstances. Foremost among those enviable circumstances was our isolation between two vast oceans.

    Our forefathers, far from lamenting their inability to orchestrate affairs on the World Continent, rejoiced in their isolation on the Island Continent. Splendid isolation was the theme until only a hundred years ago, and persisted right up to Pearl Harbor.

    The post World-War II order is however fading away. A return to isolationism is in order. Americans should be less concerned about orchestrating world affairs and more concerned about preserving their way of life. We should be looking within, not without.

    Americans should realize their enviable position on the Island Continent, cherish it, and defend it. We should implement a 100-year moratorium on immigration, deport freeloader immigrants and illegals, and get out of Korea and NATO.

    We should build a mighty Wall to defend our way of life from Pauper America and allow the oceans to buffer us from the maelstrom of the World Continent.

    We should build a City on a Hill that will last a thousand years and that the nations of the World Continent will imitate but not replicate.

    I don’t think you have a good grasp of military history or current conditions in the US military. First, the US fights wars only if they can overwhelmingly dominate the theater of war with almost endless amounts of firepower and they simply cannot do that any time soon in Eastern Europe. Second, the whole complex of military industries and contractors have created a lot of inefficiencies and a very high level of corruption and I don’t believe can fight a real war against a true professional army of highly motivated and well-supplied fighters. What the US does have is a potent air force and a highly developed covert action military force. The trouble with the air power is that Russia have excellent systems of air defense. The trouble with covert action is that the US has not been able to function well in that sphere unless that country has only a tentative control of their own country. Covert ops have failed in Cuba, Venezuela, and Iran to do much other than cause some chaos–that would never work in Russia or China,

    The only way the US can prevail over Russia is to launch a sneak nuclear attack combined with a massive attack on all possible nuclear weapons in Russia and under the ocean. US planners during the Cuban Missile Crisis were willing to initiate a nuclear war believing that striking first would kill most of the population of Russia while only losing about a fifth of its own population. This is what the Russians fear. They know that the decision-makers in the Deep State have no moral problem with murdering half the population or even most of the world. That’s why it is critically important to not offer Washington to strike first and why it is essential to shift the odds in Russia’s favor.

    I can tell you for sure, as a veteran of living in the Washington milieu that the military is too incompetent and corrupt to fight any conventional war. I have no clue why you think the US military is competent.

Vladimir Yermakov, director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Nonproliferation and Arms Control Department, made the statement, TASS reported.”

    “According to expert estimates, there are now about 200 American nuclear bombs of the B61 family in the five non-nuclear NATO countries. The infrastructure for the operational deployment of these weapons, which are capable of reaching Russian territory and striking a wide range of targets, also remains in place,” he said.”

    ”According to him, NATO countries carry out joint “nuclear” missions to train in the use of American nuclear weapons against the Russian Federation.”

    Excellent comment. My sentiments precisely (except I think Classical Liberalism is a great thing, as long as the monopolies of sorts that it produces on the regular due to successes in the competitive environment, are broken on the regular, to restore the invigorating competitive environment, ….. the other [neo-liberal] strategy of regulating monopolies seems to be way too much prone to two-way self-reinforcing corruptive forces). Otherwise, very very well said (and perhaps you agree with me with respect to what I said about Classical Liberalism, ….. and I would also say the big problem is that the monopolies are not being broken).

    For instance with the social media, if they censor (choose what is published), that makes them publishers, and as such sue-able for libel and slander, …. but nothing is done, and as such an information monopoly is formed, that can be milked to harvest influence, power, and money within other venues, and can become so corrupted that all that harvesting becomes as based on the monopoly’s now-perverted production of lies and misinformation. Lying to harvest this way, is akin to the snake oil salesman of yore – no? That is what we now have (in the west).

    This monopoly-breaking thing sure is tricky. The west has completely failed on that front, as far as I can tell.

    And let’s continue to hope that Jewry itself, will do it’s duty to humanity now, and right this ship within the Jewish community-proper, as you say, where it must start. I agree, and also I am an optimist so I really really hope this can happen. Psychopaths be damned (but really, we should have a little compassion, because their psychic circumstance means they are already damned – poor souls, ….. and also I think a key insight towards sorting this all out).

    Not a majority, but a significant minority maybe 30%. But they are not organized and have no meaningful influence. Sorry but they will not serve as the force for change you hope for. Most of them are simply unhappy with Israeli brutality, but they don’t understand that it is an intrinsic part of Zionism and maybe of the Jewish religion itself. They want to play fair and even handed against a group that are brutal and ruthless. They don’t even bring a knife to a gunfight but more like a smartphone. They are naive disorganized and without any power or influence in the larger Jewish community.

    As I have written before, this is a problem America has to solve for itself without the help of its Jewish citizens. 9/11 is a gift because it allows us to clearly brand Israel as a terrorist entity and start the process of dissociation. American Jews won’t help but they’re not necessary either. Americans have to muster up the courage and the self-respect to act in their own interest and on their own behalf.

    And if they’re not capable of doing that, then they don’t deserve anything other than the slavery the Zionists are planning for them. (Perhaps the Zionists are helping to restore America to its original foundation as a society where only 3% of the population could vote and everybody else was without representation or true power.

    Spitfire range is:

    Combat range: 248 mi (399 km, 216 nmi)
    Ferry range: 1,100 mi (1,800 km, 960 nmi) with fuel tank
    [from Wiki]*

    Distance from England to Kiev is about 1,300 miles.
    Babi Yar took place in Sep 1941.
    A Spitfire had to fly from England to Kiev over Nazi occupied territory for 1,300 miles.
    And then fly back to England.
    Without being shot down by Germans.
    Even if we take the maximum range of 1,100 miles (ferry range: no idea what that is….), it is highly unlikely a Spitfire could do it.

    Maybe some other airplane, but again the plane had to fly a long distance over Nazi occupied territory and back, in Sep 1941, without getting shot down.
    And in 1941 Luftwaffe was at its peak strength.

    So [Alfred] maybe Babi Yar did take place, and the photos of piles of bodies in a trench are real?

    On a side note: just because Stalin ordered the Katyn Massacre and blamed it on Germans, does not mean Nazis were pure as the driving snow. They murdered and caused the premature deaths of millions of Slavic peoples. To wit, the Siege of Leningrad by Nazis did happen: the Nazi criminals deliberately starved to death about 600,000 civilians — old men, women, children. Another 400,000 civilians lost their lives during evacuations. Some desperate people resorted to cannibalism. Vile Nazi war criminals.

    Here is the thing. Technically you are correct, however, the white goyim, are not as dumb as it seems if incentives/disincentives start to blow the right way and they pick up the scent.

Astounding levels of righteous indignation and spite. Fire in the eyes. A lust for blood. This is not the way to go. Jews should once again, do well, what Jews have always done well at, and get down to telling a story about what has happened ….. a good story because it needs to be the true story. That is my firm view. To avoid bloodshed. After all, WE ARE, the brotherhood of man. Mr. Unz, to his great credit has started this program, pointing to Jewish truth-tellers like Israel Shahak. But this whole JQ issue needs to be put front and center, within Jewry. I bet there are a lot of Jews that read here. Or, if that is not the case, perhaps a succinct series on the JQ can be run in the Algemeiner Journal. That would be sure to get the convo going in Jewish circles. I guess what I am looking for, is a great Jewish writer with following and influence that has the guts to complete a tour de force on this subject, and force this issue within the larger Jewish community-proper.

    “This man (Putin) cannot accept the fact that these countries want to be independent, not dependent on Moscow,” said Senator Dick Durbin (D) IL.

    Is this Senator joking or lying? I’d say the latter. How many nations are dependent on Washington, D.C.? Lots are. Ukraine was independent until the US led coup there in 2014. I guess Dick Durbin believes that only nations dependent on the USA led west are allowed to continue to exist. No nation is allowed to be independent unless under the west’s control.

    A serious problem is that the Zionist banking cartel that controls the US and UK may want war. It has a history of war profiteering and starting wars. We all know about the “regime change” wars for its pet project Israel in the Middle East. But there is also evidence that they engineered WWI and WWII. This is covered in a deeply researched book by Laurent Guyenot, an Unz Review contributor, translated by Kevin Barrett, another Unz Review contributor.

    If the (((US))) want to go thermonuclear the US missiles won’t have even the time to be launched : the KGB never disbanded actually and the Russian nuclear devices are already placed in deep tunnels wherever they are needed to explode on phone call. Most of them are placed on East Coast and even more on West Coast Cities, with a great lot in LA. Other devices are placed for an EMP throughout the country to be detonated before the war actually starts. The most considerable Russian devices are placed in Yellowstone and at tactical places where needed to make erupt other super-volcanoes if Yellowstone proves to be too mediocre. But before such an intention on US’ part to win a nuclear war is voiced but is already certain and secretly decided according to the KGB Russia prepares the ground by giving the US what they like best : social chaos to race war and absolute rupture of all supply chains, so as to keep the whole MIC most busy. This ouverture might last months. When the terrain is all prepared at the first syllable of world war declaration a dozen of cities are already wiped out and the Yellowstone ash is already spreading on the whole continent. The American nuclear bases outside the country proper whose denizens are not American patriots but mercenaries all swear allegiance to Israel when they realize their country exists no more, so as the other Five Eyes countries. Putin then explains to the world he had no choice since the US plan was to destroy humanity, and signs a treaty of mutual acknowledgement with Israel as a very last chance given to the latter. There is a nuclear cum volcanic winter but Putin tells the world the global warming problem is very real and has to be stopped by the cessation of 99% of all the world’s industrial activities and consumption to be operated while the weather is still cool. Technological progress is barred at 1900 level for everybody except for planetary governance technology.

    A ‘reconnaissance Spitfire..”??!! Over Babi Yar in the Ukraine? Where did it take off from?

    The Babi Yar Massacre allegedly took place 29–30 September 1941. Don’t forget that the Soviets were allies by then. They clearly had a great interest in knowing all about Kiev.

    At the start of the war, the RAF did not have a suitable photo reconnaissance aircraft. Long range reconnaissance was meant to be handled by Blenheim bombers, short range by the Lysander army cooperation aircraft. Neither of them was really suitable for the role, as they were far too vulnerable to modern enemy fighters. The idea of using a fast monoplane fighter for reconnaissance had been suggested before the war, but in 1939 very few aircraft could be spared. In October 1939 two Spitfire Mk Is were given to Sydney Cotton, to develop as photo reconnaissance aircraft. These two aircraft were the first of around one thousand Spitfires to be either converted or built from scratch for the reconnaissance role. This short ranged fighter would roam as far as Berlin, providing the RAF with a vital capability throughout the war.

    The PR Mk IV had the longest range of any of the early PR Spitfires. It could carry 114 gallons of fuel in its “d” wings, giving it a range of 2000 miles – in one of its first missions, a PR Mk IV reached Stettin, in the Baltic! It entered service in October 1940 (after the Mk VI), and was produced in much larger numbers than any other early PR Spitfire – a total of 229 were produced. She was known as the “bowser” because of the amount of fuel she could carry. The PR Mk IV could carry a wide variety of cameras, each given a letter code:

    You don’t understand that Ukraine is totally controlled by Jews and Israelis. It’s been going on for about 30 years, intensified in 2014 when the US judeocons got on board.

    Israel itself is a Nazi-like society and most American Jews support it. Jews will support any system that is favorable to them. They are not ideologically pure. That’s why so many German Jews voted for Hitler in the 1933 election. That’s why the Zionists worked together with the Nazi party throughout the 1930s and even during world war ii.

    American Jews are like Catholics. They pretend to support American ideals of democracy and multiculturalism, but for the Jewish Vatican state of Israel they oppose these same things. You are dealing with people with a complete double standard. Perhaps they are schizophrenic. Perhaps they are simply Machiavellian.

    ”With Turkey being the second biggest military power within NATO, its support for Russia in any future conflict would weaken NATO from within.”

    As Erdogan said, “[If Israeli gas] would be brought to Europe, it could only be done through Turkey. Is there any hope for now? We can sit and talk about the conditions.”

    Playing on both sides of global geo-political spectrum also allows Turkey a strategic leverage vis-à-vis its rivals within the wider Muslim world, in particular the UAE and Saudi Arabia, both of which are having troubled ties with the US within the current scenario.

    In addition to the 3,000 Hawker Hurricanes delivered to the Soviet Union via the North Sea, the Far East and the Persian Gulf, London also donated 1,200 Spitfires of various marks to its Russian allies. In fact, Stalin reportedly asked Churchill specifically for squadrons of the famous aircraft.

    What a lawyerly, shyster concept.

    These are basic concepts of international diplomacy regarding negotiations and treaties. It ought to be self-evident, that if James Baker III made a personal pledge to Eduard Shevardnadze (both of whom are deceased) with regard to a specific and limited scenario not even reflected in the text of a subsequent treaty, such a mutual understanding pertaining to troops in eastern Germany— which has apparently been adhered to for decades — could not then also apply to different circumstances a few decades later in a distant region elsewhere.

    Yet this is essentially what has recently been arrogantly demanded by Vladimir Putin (formerly a member of the Young Global Leader program at the World Economic Forum, according to Klaus Schwab in an interview with David Gergen at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government). Despite Putin’s tantrum, the US media and government response has been too kind to even mention this.

    The exceedingly paranoid and preposterous Russian position is based on a transparent lie (“they promised us” taken fully out of context), blatant hypocrisy (whining about its inflated “security” need while threatening hundreds of millions of Europeans with Russian missiles stationed in the illegally occupied territory of Königsberg / Kaliningrad), and ignores flagrant violations of its own treaty obligations (“refraining from the threat or use of force…“), as indicated below.

    This theatrical nonsense is duly reflected in the tenor of Whitney’s article. Contemporary Vladimir-cultism in western alternative media needs to be exposed for its propagandist irrationality just as Greta-cultism deserves to be ridiculed for its insanity.

    Here is a link to the text of the treaty that Russia signed in May 1997 and the principles it and NATO committed to:

    Text – Founding Act on Mutual Relations, Cooperation and Security between NATO and the Russian Federation signed in Paris, France


    • refraining from the threat or use of force against each other as well as against any other state, its sovereignty, territorial integrity or political independence in any manner inconsistent with the United Nations Charter and with the Declaration of Principles Guiding Relations Between Participating States contained in the Helsinki Final Act;

    It ought to be clear which side in this conflict has taken on the aggressive warmongering stance.

    Putin is not a fool and realises that the purpose of NATO was to make sure that any conflict was conducted thousands of miles away from the USA.
    If there is a conflict and Putin has no reason to back-off then it will not be in Europe. Putin will go straight to the mainland. He has indicated this before.
    Europe will quickly hold up their hands and say “it is nothing to do with us.” and for the first time, USA will have missiles and bombs landing on their cities.

    I have forwarded many articles from here to my father and his friends and colleagues. They respond that they will simply refuse to read or consider anything from TUR. Despite Ron’s impressive credentials, they castigate him as a self-hating Jew blah blah blah and won’t consider his information.

    Jews are indoctrinated from the youngest age to see themselves as perennial victims. This is how I was educated*. My process of readjustment has been extremely painful and has occurred due to a confluence of rare circumstances that most successful affluent Jewish people would never experience. These include divorce, homelessness, conversion to Christianity, regular use of alternative media on the internet since right after 9/11, and an open-mindedness to other narratives. I always saw Jesus as the ultimate symbol of Truth and his example provides encouragement to consider truth claims of groups that most Jews would consider abhorrent.

    I don’t know how Ron turned onto the path of enlightenment, but both of our stories are exceedingly rare in the American Jewish community.

    If you’re looking for a Latter-Day Moses who will right the Ship of State and breathe fire and brimstone threats on Jews, don’t count on it. Traditional evangelicals believe there will be a Moses and Elijah figure in the end of days who will save the Jewish people from their own stubborn ignorance. Maybe you should speak to some of them. But most of them are also in denial of the issues discussed here.

    I contracted covid three days ago and have a terribly swollen throat that makes it almost impossible even to swallow water, so I can’t keep up with this comment thread. If you are so inclined thank you for your prayers for a speedy recovery!

    *An example of selective Jewish education. When I was a child and went to Jewish Sunday school classes, we were taught about the ancient Jewish presence in the New World. Including synagogues dotting the Caribbean islands long before the American revolution. It was only many years later when I encountered Tony Martin and NOI that I learned what the Jews were doing in the Caribbean, namely operating slave labor sugar plantations. As well as sailing ships full of African slaves across the Atlantic. I had no idea of these things when I was younger.

    Most Jews will read of these things and shrug their shoulders and say either the writers are misinformed or they have an anti-Jewish agenda and then they will blithely ignore them. Jews honestly do not have a terribly refined conscience, and when it comes to the suffering of other people they could care less. Jewish culture is a survival mechanism. Consider Jewish history one long dragged out episode of Survivor television, where one threat after another is ruthlessly eliminated so they can stay on the island paradise and win the big prize.

    Although you try to escape responsibility, it seems to me that American society made a terrible mistake allowing mass immigration of Jews and then not forcing them to acculturate to the European Christian values of the society. Rather they allowed the Jews to develop here as a nation within a nation, to take over the society and subvert all those decent elements. And now we face an unprecedented crisis and you want someone like me, a total nobody despised by the Jewish community, to ride in on a white horse and lead these selfish self-seeking ruthless people out of their self-imposed intellectual bondage into some kind of spiritual promised land.

    I guess I should be flattered that you consider me worthy of such a calling.

    What should America (especially the white America that Jewish subversos constantly attack) do about it? No solutions available between ‘nothing’, and the ‘civil war’ you seem to counsel by way of your prescriptions? Not buying it.

    One of the few roles of the federal government that left and right both accept is the power to deem a foreign country an enemy state. I don’t see why my prescription is tantamount to civil war. If the American government labels Israel as a terrorist entity and any Jewish person who supports Zionism as a traitor to our society, that is completely within its powers.

    I don’t see any other solution frankly. The Jewish Community is not capable of policing itself. Its leadership is drunk with power and privilege. They exhibit the worst form of hubris described in all of the great tragic writings of the Greeks and Shakespeare.

    Here’s another analogy. American Jewish elites are like sharks in the throes of a feeding frenzy. No matter how much money and power they enjoy it’s never enough and they always are lusting for more, just like sharks in a pool of bloody water. The other fish stand by helplessly unable to intervene to stop the sharks.

    Leaders like rabbis and Jewish intellectuals are there to divert your attention, to tell you that sharks will be sharks and there’s nothing you can do to stop them, and other forms of misinformation.

    Above all, remember that no one willingly surrenders power. You cannot expect these evil corrupt people to suddenly play nice. They have to be compelled by an outside force that they respect and fear.
    One responsible Jewish organization I am aware of that is capable of self critique.

    Let’s see how that works out.

    How can Europe say with a straight face “it has nothing to do with us” when they have permitted American military bases and nuclear missiles all across their landscape?

    In my experience, Jews are extremely narcissistic selfish people. They truly believe that the whole world will cheer for their success stories.

    When I was a child living on the Stanford campus, my father had a colleague, a Jewish professor who only drove Mercedes and BMWs. At that time many Jewish people would not purchase German luxury items. Once I asked this person why he violated the boycott and he replied that the best revenge he could get for the Holocaust is to show the Germans that he has the money to buy their most expensive products and then proudly to flaunt them around town!

    My father was much more modest. He bought a German stereo system that was the best of its time and also most of his LPs were from Deutsche Grammafone. But these were inside our home and nobody on the outside knew about it. He simply bought them because they were the highest quality, but he understood better than his friend not to flaunt his success in the face of society.

    The rabbis teach their followers to live modestly and not to flaunt their worldly success in the face of the goyim lest they be provoked to jealousy. However if the goyim do react with jealousy, the rabbis and the Jewish Community as a whole will always blame them for being petty and never blame themselves for provoking the negative response.

    When I first read about Jewish corruption in Weimar Germany and the overwhelming economic power the Jews enjoyed while most of non-Jewish German society languished and sank into poverty and misery, I was shocked. When I shared this information with Jewish family members and friends, I was immediately accused of promoting anti-Semitism. Jewish people honestly are incapable of fathoming the anger and resentment of others who are suffering while they are running off with the fruits of society. They don’t understand why people on bread lines and homeless shelters aren’t lining the streets applauding all the wealthy and powerful Jewish success stories.

    I think even professional athletes, who are notoriously narcissistic, understand that when a plague sweeps a community people will not show up in the stadium to cheer for the team. Even those people have more of a social conscience than the Jewish elites.

    Trump’s Jewish enemies liked to call him a narcissist. This is a term they well understand because in my opinion they are the ultimate narcissists.

    Jesus is called the Son of God. That word Son is Ben in Hebrew. A good Ben is supposed to be faithful to his father and a servant to his brothers. But in Judaism Ben has a different meaning:

    B rutal
    E ntitled
    N arcissistic

    Brutal to get ahead in life by destroying anyone in their path.

    Entitled to whatever power pleasure and privilege they can amass.

    Narcissistically thinking that the whole world will applaud their successes no matter how they are achieved and at what cost to others.

    “It ought to be clear which side in this conflict has taken on the aggressive warmongering stance.”
    — Absolutely. The aggressor has some 800 military bases worldwide to prop a worthless banknote by bloody bayonets. For decades, the aggressor has been doing regime changes followed by looting, raping, and murdering (see Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya).

    The aggressor has two principal motivations:
    1. Getting other nations’ resources for free (Banksters Unite!)
    2. Satisfying the ideology of exceptionalism, which has nicely fused with talmudic aspirations for world domination, beginning with the Eretz Israel. – See Oded Yinon plan to which the US has been adhering to up to date.

    As for your pretense of caring about Western Europe — the pretense is very thin.
    The Wars for Israel have changed Europe (see millions of refugees and migrants and the resulting “vibrancy”). Besides, Western Europe’s interests are not the zionized USA’s interests. While German children are shivering without readily available Russian gas, the ZUSA has been importing Russian oil, day after day, some 844.000 barrels per day.

    Sorry to inform you, but your post #2o5 is oozing with hypocrisy.

    Since you are not American (though you are obviously very interested in the state of the US military), you have not noticed the ongoing invasion of illegal migrants on the US southern border. In comparison, the Ukrainian borders are thousands of miles away from the gangster state of the US.
    And lastly, NATO is a criminal organization involved in wars of aggression (supreme international crime) and in crimes against humanity. The sooner it dissipates, the better for people of Western Europe.

    Sergey Lavrov on the role of Obama the Fraud in the current crisis in Eastern Europe:

    This is yet another escalation of the crisis that was triggered by Barack Obama who revealed his genuine character. Three weeks before his departure from the White House, he … deprived us of five diplomatic properties and expelled dozens of diplomats who had to pack up all their staff with their families in three days. This was the beginning of it all.

    Lavrov on opportunistic “professor” McFaul:

    Mr. McFaul, who had made a tremendous contribution to destroying anything constructive in Russian-American relations, just did not have time to read the Minsk agreements approved in February 2015. They are about preserving the unity and territorial integrity of Ukraine. … Germany and France, who endorsed the text of the Minsk agreements with us and the Ukrainians, begged us, with Pyotr Poroshenko joining those requests, to persuade the leaders of the two republics to sign the Minsk agreements… Mr. McFaul should probably learn the contemporary history of the region. The issue of recognition must be considered in the context of our firm line to get the West to compel Kiev to abide by the Minsk agreements. Then everything will be all right, just as envisaged by this document endorsed by the UN Security Council.”

    Since you are so fond of the UN, here is a repost of your quote that you can ponder on in the context of the Minsk agreement (2015).

    refraining from the threat or use of force against each other as well as against any other state, its sovereignty, territorial integrity or political independence in any manner inconsistent with the United Nations Charter and with the Declaration of Principles Guiding Relations Between Participating States contained in the Helsinki Final Act.

    There is nothing noble about your apologia of the gangster state of the USA. Whether Iraq, Yugoslavia, Venezuela, Syria, or Libya, the US has been acting like a rapacious bandit. When US crimes are exposed by journalists, the journalists are either murdered or imprisoned.

    The US has been the greatest violator of all kinds of international laws. What is going in Ukraine right now is just another chapter from “War is a Racket.” Western Banksters want other people’s resources for free, and the Military-Industrial Complex wants a bogeyman to make mega-profit.

    Did you notice that Von Karajan is conducting with his eyes closed? In this performance of Beethoven’s 7th I think he performs the entire work with his eyes closed, never once looking at the score:

    This final dramatic scene in the movie, The King’s Speech, shows the English king with a stutter declaring war on Germany at the beginning of world war ii. Very cleverly the movie uses Beethoven’s 7th the second movement as the background music for his dramatic speech.

    I think the film is trying to say that Beethoven belongs to the world and not just to Germany:

    Apparently there was a tug of war going on between the Nazi regime and the rest of the world concerning Beethoven’s true identity. According to one biography I read, towards the end of his life Beethoven had been invited to move to England. He was suffering ill health and meager finances and a group of friends and supporters in England were prepared to enhance his lifestyle if he made the move. He supposedly was actively considering this when he was suddenly struck down in death. He would have joined his predecessor Händel as another great German composer to move to England, presaging the mass Exodus of German Jewish scientists and intellectuals in the 1930s, mainly to America and to England.

    Sergey Lavrov: ”Once again I am addressing, through you, those who may have some influence on Western journalism and the media. Why do journalists appear sporadically, once every six months, at best, on the Kiev-controlled side of the contact line in Donbass? Why is their reporting so spotty? It would be very interesting to see them there. On the other side of the contact line, our journalists show the results of the atrocities committed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine that are bombing kindergartens, outpatient clinics and residential areas and killing people. According to the OSCE, civilian casualties on the side controlled by Donbass defenders are five times higher than on the opposite side. This speaks for itself.”

    Use of provocation by US-NATO: ”The Americans are using Ukraine against Russia so openly and cynically that the Kiev regime itself is now scared. They are now saying there is no need to aggravate the discussion and are suggesting that the Americans keep down the rhetoric, and are also wondering why evacuate diplomats. Who is evacuating diplomats? The Americans and other Anglo-Saxons (Canada and the UK), meaning they know something others don’t.”

    South Ossetia (attacked by US-NATO in August 2008 by Bush and friend Mikaïl Sakashviili).

    Sergey Lavrov: ” Zviad Gamsakhurdia was quite chauvinistic in his demands for Abkhazians to get out or to “georgify.” He believed South Ossetia residents did not deserve humane treatment. Nobody is saying anything about it. Then comes a brilliant phrase: “In 2008, when the conflict entered the hot phase, Russia took South Ossetia’s side.” This is Euronews, which touts itself as a channel of fair news and an epitome of diversity when it comes to presenting diverse viewpoints. They did not even mention how the fratricidal conflict began.”


    Sergey Lavrov: ”We are still waiting for an answer to our question about who flew in to pick up Alexey Navalny. (…) The Germans say she did not communicate with the blogger and did not visit him at the hospital. She wrote that she did. The bottle she brought along has not been shown to anyone. Our requests to run a joint examination of it are rejected. Allegations that illegal poisonous substances were found in Mr Navalny’s body began after no CWC-prohibited substances had been found by the Charité clinic, which is a civilian hospital. All of that was “discovered” at a clinic operated by the Bundeswehr in a matter of just three days. Before that, a similar scenario unfolded with the Skripal family. We insisted that the investigation must be grounded in hard facts, not “highly likely” assumptions. We cited facts that there are almost 150 patents for the infamous Novichok in the West, in particular, the United States. It was developed in Europe as well. Then Germany, France, Sweden and many other countries swore that they did not have this technology. Without the technology, it is impossible to detect this substance in the human body in three days. Any more or less experienced chemist is aware of that.”


    458 Russian nationals are serving sentence in Belarus.


    Note on the NATO aggression of South Ossetia by Georgia with Bush and his friend Mikaïl Sakashviili: c.f.,

    ”In August 2008, following a large-scale joint military exercise with U.S. troops, the Georgian military mounted a full offensive into South Ossetia, resulting in Russia’s retaliatory intervention. In the resultant clash, Russian forces quickly destroyed the Georgian forces and restored the previous territorial boundaries of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

    That same year, Canada led the campaign to admit both Georgia and Ukraine into NATO. Had Canada been successful in that effort, the third world war would have either erupted in 2008 over South Ossetia, or in March 2014 over Russia’s annexation of the Crimea from Ukraine.”

    Jewish culture is a survival mechanism. Consider Jewish history one long dragged out episode of Survivor television, where one threat after another is ruthlessly eliminated so they can stay on the island paradise and win the big prize.

    I pointed elsewhere this could be viewed as a kind of “selective breeding” which, after 1030 or so expellings (or killings), produced a race with some relevant characteristics:
    1- A high IQ, because only the most astute and intellingent managed to escape.
    2- A complete hatred for any other people but Jews.
    3- A habit to develop close and secret ties among them.

    Although you try to escape responsibility, it seems to me that American society made a terrible mistake allowing mass immigration of Jews and then not forcing them to acculturate to the European Christian values of the society.

    Not only americans but all the other societies.
    But how could they manage to integrate a people who:
    1- Had always been persecuted and expelled everywhere and finished by seeing (or imagining) enemies lurking around every corner. This is why they are so sensitive about things as “anti-semitism”, holocaust deniers”, etc.
    2- Considered themselves to have something quite superior the others hadn’t. I am not talking about bullshit like them being the “chosen people” while all others are just goyim to serve them. Rather because they had a religious/cultural heritage very structured, since millennia. I don’t know if you had ever the opportunity to look into the mystical/occult aspects of kaballah. It’s a real mystery there, and I think very few people today (and since ever) could understand and appreciate the depth and universality.

    A forced acculturation could have happened at the level of the simple integration of day-to-day societal relations, but all the rest would have had to be respected. And this latter part is very difficult. Do we know a lot of examples where a multi-religion, multi-cultural, society have their members living peacefully side by side, for long time, without clashes ?

    Russia considers the US non agreement capable because it reneges on promises and treaties, written or not. Baker’s worthless promise was made to Gorbachev, not Shevardnadze, and it is you taking it out of context.

    “To assent to the reunification of Germany, Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev ultimately agreed to a proposal from then U.S. Secretary of State James Baker that a reunited Germany would be part of NATO but the military alliance would not move “one inch” to the east, that is, absorb any of the former Warsaw Pact nations into NATO.”

    “Gorbachev’s mistake was not to get it in writing as a legally-binding agreement.  For years it was believed there was no written record of the Baker-Gorbachev exchange at all, until the National Security Archive at George Washington University in December 2017 published a series of memos and cables about these assurances against NATO expansion eastward.  The archive reported:

    “U.S. Secretary of State James Baker’s famous ‘not one inch eastward’ assurance about NATO expansion in his meeting with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev on February 9, 1990, was part of a cascade of assurances about Soviet security given by Western leaders to Gorbachev and other Soviet officials throughout the process of German unification in 1990 and on into 1991, according to declassified U.S., Soviet, German, British and French documents …

    “The documents show that multiple national leaders were considering and rejecting Central and Eastern European membership in NATO as of early 1990 and through 1991, that discussions of NATO in the context of German unification negotiations in 1990 were not at all narrowly limited to the status of East German territory, and that subsequent Soviet and Russian complaints about being misled about NATO expansion were founded in written contemporaneous memcons and telcons at the highest levels.  … The documents reinforce former CIA Director Robert Gates’s criticism of ‘pressing ahead with expansion of NATO eastward [in the 1990s], when Gorbachev and others were led to believe that wouldn’t happen.’ …

    “President George H.W. Bush had assured Gorbachev during the Malta summit in December 1989 that the U.S. would not take advantage (‘I have not jumped up and down on the Berlin Wall”) of the revolutions in Eastern Europe to harm Soviet interests.’”

    “One Jan. 31, 1999 cable from the U.S. embassy in Bonn informed Washington that German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher’s speech that day made clear “that the changes in Eastern Europe and the German unification process must not lead to an ‘impairment of Soviet security interests.’ Therefore, NATO should rule out an ‘expansion of its territory towards the east, i.e. moving it closer to the Soviet borders.’”

    So here we are. Russia was fully prepared for US rejection of its security proposals, just going thru due process to get its expected rejection on the historical record as a prelude to what comes next.

    …your apologia of the gangster state of the USA

    Again, perhaps you did not read carefully enough. I provided no “apologia” for US actions but merely pointed out – with sufficient supporting evidence – why the Russian position on this specific issue is completely dishonest, because its premises (lies) are contradicted by documented facts. The official response by NATO to Russia’s unwarranted demands, logically derives from this recognition.

    The thrust of the propaganda article by Whitney suggests that Russia has the moral high ground on this topic and is being reasonable, but I have shown that both these notions are not true. Since you cannot overturn this conclusion, you made false claims about my comment instead and threw around names unrelated to the conflict in Central Europe, like “Iraq, Yugoslavia, Venezuela, Syria, or Libya“, along with Obama, John Yoo and Condi Reisa, to detract from the actual topic I had addressed, as it pertains to the article. Countering blatant Russian disinformation is not at all equivalent to providing “apologia” of US policies.

    Russia’s continued illegal military occupation of its Stalinist enclave in Königsberg / Kaliningrad reflects its government’s persisting and stubborn sentiment of raw revanchism, ready to flare up openly again, in the future, because it is barely subdued. Note that such cities as Leningrad and Stalingrad were renamed long ago, but Königsberg is still named after Mikhail Kalinin, a Bolshevik revolutionary and head of state of the Soviet Union for more than a quarter century. The following article, from 2018 in Newsweek, highlights how staunchly the Stalinist name must still be adhered to:

    Flight Attendant to Be Fired for Calling Russian City by a German Name

    A flight attendant in Russia will apparently be fired for calling a Russian city by its old German name in front of a plane full of passengers.

    This ongoing naval and land occupation, with its many missiles pointed toward Europe, is counterproductive because it provides a legitimate pretext for NATO to maintain a defensive military presence in the three former Soviet states at the Baltic Sea and in Poland. So long as this threat remains the overriding issue perpetuating the Cold War, the root cause for the US military presence in Europe, which nobody ever talks about, will stay hidden from public consciousness, and Russia is conveniently playing along.

    Three years ago I explained this in the commentary thread that featured an article entitled The Growing Anti-Semitism Scam, by Philip Giraldi.

    Not only do you have your purported “facts” mixed up, you have completely ignored the temporal and logical rationale for why it would not have even been possible for James Baker III to have made the kind of “promises” now being alleged, decades later. Also, you have disregarded the contents of the 1997 treaty that Russia had signed (which I had linked to directly) but now does not want to adhere to.

    The newest spin you provide on the topic, by alluding a public statement, in January 1999, from the former German foreign minister, Genscher, is rather peculiar because it does not support the argument that you are trying to make. He had already retired from the federal government years before, in 1992. At the time of the statement he was working for a law firm. Therefore his opinion about NATO expansion reflected his personal views at the time, based on the political circumstances that prevailed then. Certainly he was neither speaking on behalf of the German government nor NATO.

    After Russia had finally left its military bases from Latvia and Estonia in August 1994, it had ten additional years to vacate the rest of its military from the Baltic region, between Lithuania and Poland, until the three former Soviet states in the region joined NATO. What about their security concerns? After such a long time of waiting for Russia to fulfill its obligations, which it failed to do and has not done to this day, they cannot retrospectively be accused of having been impatient.

    Furthermore, your “one inch” comment is also fully misconstrued, as is verified by the person who was in charge, himself. In October 2014 Mikhail Gorbachev gave an interview to the publication Russia Beyond, launched in 2007 by Rossiyskaya Gazeta and operated by TV-Novosti, founded by the Russian state news agency. He was specifically asked about the proposal made by Baker during the 1990 negotiations. Here is his published response, which anyone can easily verify:

    “The topic of “NATO expansion” was not discussed at all, and it wasn’t brought up in those years. I say this with full responsibility. Not a singe Eastern European country raised the issue, not even after the Warsaw Pact ceased to exist in 1991. Western leaders didn’t bring it up, either. Another issue we brought up was discussed: making sure that NATO’s military structures would not advance and that additional armed forces from the alliance would not be deployed on the territory of the then-GDR after German reunification. Baker’s statement, mentioned in your question, was made in that context.”

    So, as I had pointed out at the outset, Baker’s proposals or verbal assurances were necessarily entirely with regard to the territory of East Germany (DDR), and they have been adhered to, as I have shown in my first message in this thread.

    The question you should now answer for us readers: Why are you still so desperate to want to cling on to discredited Russian political propaganda and the transparent lies on which it is based?

    Unlike Crimea, that region was not ever a part of historical Russia prior to the war.

It has supplied the Ukrainian armed forces with around 2,000 anti-tank missiles and sent 30 service personnel to train the Ukrainians in their use. But while strong words from the defence secretary and firm support for Kyiv are useful, they need to be part of a coherent overall strategy.”

    ”Russia fights its enemies in domains stretching from disinformation and influence operations through gas supply reductions and cyber-attacks to full-scale military conflict. The UK needs a similarly broad strategy for dealing with Russia.”

    ”Such a strategy should start at home and work outwards. The first priority should be the protection of UK territory, citizens and institutions. That is partly a military task but also involves cyber defence, traditional counter-espionage, and hardening British society against disinformation.”

  256. @Been_there_done_that

    Thanks, the Gorbachev quote is surprising. Cognitive decline perhaps? At that time he was 83, older than Biden is today.

    “The secrecy around the promises at the time has muddied the water. Gorbachev himself contributed to the confusion in an interview where he denied those promises were made, saying that the topic of Nato expansion “was not brought up at all in those years.””  

    “What motivated Gorbachev to deny the promises remains a matter of speculation but the declassified documents are absolutely clear that the promises were made many times.”

    “…discredited Russian political propaganda and … transparent lies”? I’m admittedly biased, but that seems bass-ackwards to me. The US has a record of broken promises and treaties going way back, as Mevashir noted, but just in recent history: the Framework Agreement w North Korea, the INF Treaty with Russia, the CWC, and the JCPOA with Iran. It regularly violates international law and UN resolutions, and regularly commits war crimes (and punishes journalist who dare expose them). It has a history of overthrows and attempted overthrows in countries too numerous to mention, but most recently WRT Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakhstan. So yes, I’m biased — with ample reason.

    Even Ukraine’s President Zelensky is alarmed by US saber-rattling.

    “IN A STUNNING and unexpected outburst this week, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that his country’s current problems came from the west rather than the east.”


    “The buzzphrase that emerged from those discussions was just three words long: “Not one inch.” It came, originally, from the mouth of the US Secretary of State James Baker, on February 9, 1990. NATO, he told Gorbachev, would move “not one inch eastward”.

    NATO should rule out an “expansion of its territory towards the east, i.e. moving it closer to the Soviet borders”, the US Embassy in Bonn declared.

    America’s national security archive, housed at George Washington University, sums up the meeting thus:

    Not once, but three times, Baker tried out the “not one inch eastward” formula with Gorbachev in the February 9, 1990, meeting. He agreed with Gorbachev’s statement in response to the assurances that “NATO expansion is unacceptable.” Baker assured Gorbachev that “neither the President nor I intend to extract any unilateral advantages from the processes that are taking place,” and that the Americans understood that “not only for the Soviet Union but for other European countries as well it is important to have guarantees that if the United States keeps its presence in Germany within the framework of NATO, not an inch of NATO’s present military jurisdiction will spread in an eastern direction.”

    So this is why Russia is methodically establishing a due-process, written record of the US position for posterity. The ball is now in Putin’s court.

    Have you noticed how US has staged colour revolutions in countries which have Russian bases or are friendly to Russia or could potentially host Russian bases? They only succeeded in the Ukraine, everywhere else the colour revolutions were defeated. The failure of their colour revolutions in Cuba and Venezuela means that Russia could now move, or threaten to move, nuclear missiles to those countries in the chess game the superpowers are playing, and of course the failure of the colour revolution in Belarus led to Russian troop deployments in the country. This would not have been possible had those colour revolutions succeeded and US friendly governments been installed. I am not sure why Russians hadn’t countered the Ukrainian colour revolution more forcefully but anyway they got Crimea completely in the fold of Russia which wouldn’t have been possible had they preserved Ukraine as a unified country.

When Donbas and Lugansk rebelled he could have provided more support, to the extent to enable the rebels to take Odessa and the entire coastal region and cut off Ukraine’s access to the sea.

    Militarily, the Russians can conventionally occupy all of Western Europe if they wish – which they don’t. However, they do demand that the USA stops trying to place nuclear-capable missiles nearby. A most reasonable request.

    The only reason Russia presented these demands is so that the Russian population can become cognisant of the fact that the West is not “agreement capable”. By rejecting these demands, the West has waved the green flag to the Russian government. Its hands are untied. I suspect they will first clean out Syria. We will see. It will not be Ukraine.

    Right. Nice try. While after 30 years, the very narrow question of Baker’s and others’ multiple oral promises against expansion and encirclement of Russia is slightly muddier than I first thought, the national archives emphatically prove that it is not at all “delusional”. And Putin’s push-back against 14 new countries added to NATO since 1997 can hardly be characterized as a “shameful ploy” or “ludicrous” or based on a “transparent lie”, especially in the context of the CIA’s 2014 Maidan coup, the millions in offensive arms to Ukraine since then, the recent attempted coups in Belarus and Kazakhstan, and the NATO military provocations in the Black Sea, etc. Add in those same provocations against China and Iran, then the highly-pertinent wider context of 20 years of Israeli-US’ war crimes and mass-slaughter since 9-11 in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and Yahweh knows where else, and Putin would be delusional not to set forth his bright red lines.

    The idea that what is happening on the Washington orchestrated TV stage has anything to do with standing up to dictators and Munich 2.0 is so blithering stupid that it deserves to be torn asunder limb-for-limb.

    Quoting Aaron Mate: “The inevitable result would have to be Maidan, completely manipulated by American intel, even as Russians clearly saw how the EU switched from the position of honest broker to the lowly role of American chihuahuas.

    “Russo-phobic U.S. hawks will never renounce the spectacle of their historical adversary bogged down in a slow-burning fratricidal war in the post-Soviet space. As much as they will never renounce Divide and Rule imposed over a discombobulated Europe. And as much as they will never concede “spheres of influence” to any geopolitical player.

    “Without their toxic imprint, 2014 could have played in quite a different manner.

    “To dissuade Putin to restore Crimea to its rightful place – Russia – it would have taken two things: for Ukraine to be decently managed after 1992, and not to force it to choose the Western camp, but to make it a bridge, Finland or Austria-style.

    “After Maidan, the Minsk agreements were as close as possible to a viable solution: let’s end the conflict in Donbass; let’s disarm the protagonists; and let’s re-establish control of the borders of Ukraine while providing real autonomy to Eastern Ukraine.

    “For all that to happen, Ukraine would have needed a neutral status, and a double security guarantee, by Russia and NATO. And to render the association agreement between Ukraine and the EU compatible with the close links between Eastern Ukraine and the Russian economy.

    “All that would have perhaps configured a European vision of decent future relations with Russia.

    “Yet the Russo-phobic Deep State would never allow it. And the same applied to the White House. Barack Obama, that cynical opportunist, was too engulfed by the dodgy Polish context in Chicago and not free from the exceptionalist obsession with deep antagonism to be able to build a constructive relationship with Russia.

    “Then there’s the clincher, revealed by a high-level US Intel source.

    “In 2013, the late Zbigniew “Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski was presented with a classified report on Russian advanced missiles. He freaked out. And responded by conceptualizing Maidan 2014 – to draw Russia into a guerrilla war then as he had done with Afghanistan in the 1980s.

    Since the facts are destroying your preferred narrative, you just ignore reality. In the 1997 Paris treaty that Russia signed with NATO (see the link I provided above), it acknowledged the right for those countries to join the organization. People in many of those countries do not have fond memories of past Russian occupation and therefore obviously prefer a military alliance with North American and western European countries. When Russia refused to end its illegal occupation of Königsberg / Kalinigrad, which is used exclusively for military purposes as a potential threat against Europe, it showed off its lingering Stalinist colors and destroyed good will.

    Russian own policies are responsible for the threat situation it induced years ago, and continues to maintain, but is now theatrically whining about, in true chutzpah-style. If Putin miscalculates the effects of the increasingly tense situation he is needlessly provoking, then he may have to contend with two additional NATO members, joining simultaneously within a short time, namely Finland and Sweden. Their new membership would be welcomed and quickly approved. By contrast, it is rather unlikely that membership of the Ukraine, if it ever wanted to join, would get the necessary approval because other NATO members see it as a liability.

    Working with other key neocons, including National Endowment for Democracy President Carl Gershman and Sen.

    CIA director John Brennan visited Ukraine and it was after the meeting that the coup-imposed authorities in Kiev ordered a military operation in the country’s east. Brennan “de facto sanctioned” the use of weapons and thus provoked the bloodshed.


    3. The new regime in Kiev had implemented a law allowing foreigners to buy Ukrainian lands. Compare the Kievan “land reform” to that: “A bill being co-led by Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Mary Miller (R-IL) would place a five-year moratorium on foreign land purchases to protect “American sovereignty” from being “eroded.”

    You totally ignored the following Q and comments:
    What is the difference between regime-changing Ukraine from regime-changing Syria and Libya? Ukrainian gold has disappeared, similar to Libyan and Venezuelan gold. Looks like regular thievery by the ZUSA.

    So, you big-brain leftists here seriously believe that Neocons’ crimes automatically cancel Putin’s criminal past and present crimes? Are you a grown-up person or a child, BTW? And where did your brainy “well-sourced analysis” bring this country to so far? Hah? Nothing but disaster. If you are an honest person you have to admit it. The reason I am here is not for recycling some BS “well-reasoned well-sourced analysis” but wake people up.

    Thanks for more recycled useless propaganda. Although I see no point of arguing my points with you, only because you seem quite entrenched in your position, I’d like to emphasize that you will never be able to see the clear picture of events that preceded or followed the “regime change” unless you’ve lived there for at least 10 years and cleared your mind from any propaganda coming from both sides of the conflict. Even the best and brightest in Ukraine say wild things which are far from reality. And here is the last, but not least. There is almost no free information concerning politics on the Internet. Everything is bought or sold to the higher bidder. Sad, but it’s what it is. So, my advice to you: please stop carrying water for someone who might eventually turns out to be your enemy.

    Since the facts are destroying your preferred narrative, you just ignore reality. In the 1997 Paris treaty that Russia signed with NATO (see the link I provided above), it acknowledged the right for those countries to join the organization. 

    Okay, you got me to read it. I honestly can’t find anything to support your pivotal “fact”. Please help out with a referenced quote. Am I reading the right Treaty, signed 05/’97 in Paris signed by NATO and Russia?

    For now, let’s assume you can provide evidence to support your one pivotal “fact” on the limited issue of legally green-lighting NATO’s significant expansion since 1997. But even if conceded as a fact for now, that ambiguity itself is simply overwhelmed by the manifold root causes and recent historical context of the current crisis, which I listed above without response. And the Neocons’ desperation to provoke Russia into attacking the tarbaby they’ve set up as Ukraine grows increasingly bizarre. Putin won’t touch that, except as a defensive response to a direct attack in violation of the Minsk agreements (not ruling out a false flag here, for which the US is notorious.) Even the president of Ukraine, Russia’s “imminent” target, has to tell POTUS to chill out And how is it in real American peoples’ vital national security interests to send weapons and “advisors” to Ukraine, promise to defend its sovereignty as a foster NATO member, and threaten Russia for something it never intends to do? Do we share a border, or is this old domino theory trotted out from Cold War 1, “fight them over there…”? While ZUSA plays dominoes, Putin plays chess. The West has no idea what’s coming; Karma Blowback is gonna be a bitch.

  283. …can’t find anything to support your pivotal “fact”.

    The basic fact is that whatever Baker said 32 years ago became irrelevant in 1997 because the terms of the Paris treaty addressed that topic specifically, as well as the general conduct between Russia and NATO. The link I provided was merely for the sake of verifying the authenticity of key excerpts I had already quoted above.

    Based on the terms of the treaty, Russia’s obsessive emphasis of its “not one inch” public propaganda narrative, aggressive military concentration near Ukraine, and recent demands put to NATO were unwarranted, whereas you indicated they were justifiable or reasonable.

    More importantly, Russia’s theatrical appeal to its “security concerns” are extremely hypocritical in view of its ongoing threats against numerous neighboring countries in the Baltic region and beyond (with missiles) through its continued military occupation of land far beyond its own territory.

    Furthermore, NATO membership in countries in eastern Europe that had suffered Russian occupation for many years is understandable and shows that a military alliance with Russia is considered far worse than one with the NATO, for which Russia has its own past conduct to blame.

    Instead of resorting to diplomacy with Ukraine and NATO Putin decided to throw a tantrum by tactically positioning and showing off military hardware, perhaps for domestic consumption, so your “playing chess” cliche is inappropriate to characterize the situation.

  284. Goddard says:

    How do you deal with that?

    I go back in time and adopt most of Pat Buchanan’s 1992 America First! platform. I ease our transition away from foreign entanglements and toward a more isolationist existence. I turn our country away from empire-building, which is contrary to the spirit of the Founders, the Revolution, and the Constitution. I eschew the temptations of global financial power for a more bulldog-like, feisty, independence-loving, self-sufficient republic. I build a republic imbued with republican virtues such as frugality and simplicity. Such a country would be far more powerful and influential than the grotesque quasi-empire that currently exists. It would last for a thousand years.

    Building a contiguous nation, even a large, transcontinental one, is not the same as entangling oneself in alliances and meddling in the affairs of ancient nations far across the sea. The Founders were indeed hungry. Jefferson jumped at the chance to acquire Louisiana. Even the purchase of Alaska is more nation-building than empire-building. The trouble started with the splendid little war with Spain and acquisition of far-flung and culturally distinct colonies such as the Philippines and Puerto Rico.

  290. @Been_there_done_that

    The only quote you cite to support your essential claim for NATO expansion is from a dubious Wikipedia site, which is as credible as Newsweek, both of them regime media outlets that make Soviet Era Pravda look positively objective.

    In 1997, NATO and Russia signed a treaty stating that each country had a sovereign right to seek alliances.[14]

    So I checked the wiki quote and its footnote reference, but there’s nothing there! Vapor. Swamp gas. And nothing in the actual text of NATO’s Founding Act of 1997 either. So the single hinge for all your fabricated Neocon propaganda here seems to have lost its connecting pin.

    Who cuts your paycheck? Appears you are reading off a script.

    As for military alliances, a logical one would be a confederation of Baltic Nations: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Yes, it would entail breakup of NATO (long overdue) and provide mutual reassurance to the entire neighborhood comprised of (my estimate) approximately 125 million people. It might also do as an economic bloc to replace the bank\$ter dominated E.U.

    Once again you have proven the verity of my observation, stated earlier:

    Since the facts are destroying your preferred narrative, you just ignore reality.

    Here are three examples of your denials:

    • After I had pointed to the interview with Gorbachev in 2014 in a Russian publication you ridiculed ahis confirmation by claiming that he was already too old and senile and insinuated that he didn’t know what he was talking about.

    • After I had pointed to the 1997 treaty in Paris as the basis in which Russia acknowledged NATO expansion and the right of sovereign states, from which I even provided an excerpt in my message #205, above, you attempted to mislead readers into thinking there is “noting there“, as if it were a dead link with no content.

    • After you saw that Wikipedia correctly reflected the information it conveyed by citing a credible source, you summarily denounced it as a “regime media” outlet.

    If you had bothered to read or searched for the keyword “expand“, you might have noticed in the fourth paragraph, the following announcement:

    “…NATO has expanded and will continue to expand its political functions, and taken on new missions …”

    This interchange with you has highlighted to me your state of delusion.

    …confederation of Baltic Nations.

    • Norway, which you include in your proposed list of members, is not a Baltic nation.

    • An obvious precondition for a future breakup of NATO, which you envision, is for Russia to completely vacate its military forces and supporting population from the territory I had mentioned above, which it continues to illegally occupy.

    Those who advocate the breakup of NATO should therefore be staunch supporters of Russia obeying international law. Instead, many commenting here regularly ignore or excuse Russian transgressions.

  295. @Alfred

    Dear Alfred,

    yesterday I wrote a long sermon to you in German. In German because it was basically meant for your eyes only.


    It does not show here, so today I can not repeat it, nevertheless I want to point again to the works of Udo Walendy:
    Udo Walendy is the greatest living German in my eyes. His masterwork is “Die Weltanschauung des Wissens”.
    I want to think, that it would help you greatly (and hence your family).

    With real Germans he is especially knwon for over 100 expertises an varying subjects of “Historische Tatsachen” since JWW1. One expertise concerns the lies about Babyn Yar.

    The most important and uncorruptable knowledge:
    You are soul; you are “eine Seele von Mensch” (which is usually only said after the soul is seperated from the vehicle (e.g. human body). One has to differentiate between soul and mind (= Gemüt); soul is eternal, unhurtable etc. The Gemüt suffers…every Gemüt suffers…

    Did you put a picture of your daughter into these pages? If so, why? The why is only for you. It is none of my business. I do not need to know. I wish you and your daughter and your daughter’s mother all the best. May they return with you to Germany. This is where all three of you belong, even if the mother is Australian. It is called orders of love. You did and do not belong to Australia (most Australians probably don’t do).
    If a negro comes to Germany and screws (up) a German and a mongrel results, then all three belong to Africa. It is called orders of love.
    A Zeitgenosse of Udo Walendy is a man called Bert Hellinger. Hellinger has worked very important insights into “Ordnungen der Liebe”. Another one you really ought to read, if you allow me to say so.

    Udo Walendy, Bert Hellinger and Geert Ryke Hamer(+) are the temporary giants of DEUS; it is life saving to know and understand their works. Of course, do not believe me. Heil (Tyroleans still say today). Heil Dir.

  296. Alfred says:

    Dear Kurt,

    Thank you for your sympathy. The mother is Russian – but living in Australia corrupts many people.

    I spent around 3 years in Munich. It was a nice place. I was there when die Mauer came down. I have not been back there since.

    I like to think that truth will eventually prevail. But a lot of bad things need to happen before then.

    I will look into Udo Walendy.

  297. @Been_there_done_that

    Once again, the links I provided, including the national archives clearly document oral assurances and promises given — and broken — by the west. But as stated before, that is a narrow point of minor consequence in Russia’s position. It only undermines the west’s credibility on that one issue among a host of others.

    “…NATO has expanded and will continue to expand its political functions, and taken on new missions …”

    Grasping at straws. “…expand its political functions … a new missions” simply cannot be construed as expansion of new member states to encircle Russia. Neither that excerpt nor your wiki quote (unsupported by its footnote source) justify NATO’s doubling its membership since inception. Sorry. Once gain, no sale. The delusion is yours.

    As noted earlier, Putin’s security concerns and Russia’s red lines are entirely legitimate. And once again, they are not premised solely on the expansion of NATO, the one point upon which you insist on hanging your “transparent lies”, “delusions”, etc. They are premised on the much larger context — the totality of US mobilizing hostile forces on Russia’s (and China’s) borders; the CIA-sponsored Maidan coup; the attempted coups in Belarus, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Syria, Ethiopia, and Yemen; the bombing of Serbia (without UNSC authorization), the invasion and destruction of Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc., based on proven lies; broken treaties and violations of UN resolutions (Palestine); the murder of Qasem Soleimani while on a diplomatic mission; rigged trade agreements, illegal punitive sanctions on Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, etc.; and so on. The US is a rogue empire, the world’s largest organized crime syndicate (fused with Israel), clearly intent on global dominion. This reality is the elephant in the room, not merely the narrow promises broken by NATO. Its expansion is only a single constituent of Russia’s much larger security concern.

    So feel free to continue litigating your one obsession. I’m done. Awaiting Russia’s response(s).

    Why are you so carefully avoiding the well-known ethnic composition of the main “commies?” Hint: it was not Lenin (though he did belong to the Tribe through his mom).

    The US/NATO is often “guided” by Knesset on Potomac, an affiliate of real Knesset in Israel. There is also the ever opportunistic (treasonous) MIC of which Smedley Buttler had proper words to say in his “War is a Racket.” But the main deciders are the “owners” – the Captains of Finance/Mega-Corporations. You don’t want to mention them.- Why?

    What is your problem with the Russian Federation? – Russians still have their history, their language, and their traditions. In comparison, the western world has famous transvestites, the woke mob destroying the history of western civilization, the LGBTQIA+ to define one’s gender and sexual orientation, and the unstoppable wars against various “amaleks” – Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Venezuela… These wars always involve massive looting and mass murder. See Libya.
