It is difficult to find anything good to say about Donald Trump, but the reality is that he has not started any new wars, though he has come dangerously close in the cases of Venezuela and Iran and there would be considerable incentive in the next four months to begin something to bolster his “strong president” credentials and to serve as a distraction from coronavirus and black lives matter.

Be that as it may, Trump will have to run hard to catch up to the record set by his three predecessors Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Bush was an out-and-out neoconservative, or at least someone who was easily led, including in his administration Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen, Reuel Gerecht, Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, Eliot Abrams, Dan Senor and Scooter Libby. He also had the misfortune of having to endure Vice President Dick Cheney, who thought he was actually the man in charge. All were hawks who believed that the United States had the right to do whatever it considered necessary to enhance its own security, to include invading other countries, which led to Afghanistan and Iraq, where the U.S. still has forces stationed nearly twenty years later.

Clinton and Obama were so-called liberal interventionists who sought to export something called democracy to other countries in an attempt to make them more like Peoria. Clinton bombed Afghanistan and Sudan as a diversion when the press somehow caught wind of his arrangement with Monica Lewinsky and Obama, aided by Mrs. Clinton, chose to destroy Libya. Obama was also the first president to set up a regular Tuesday morning session to review a list of American citizens who would benefit from being killed by drone.

So the difference between neocons and liberal interventionists is one of style rather than substance. And, by either yardstick all-in-all, Trump looks pretty good, but there has nevertheless been a resurgence of neocon-think in his administration. The America the exceptional mindset is best exemplified currently by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who personifies the belief that the United States is empowered by God to play only by its own rules when dealing with other nations. That would include following the advice that has been attributed to leading neocon Michael Ledeen, “Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business.

One of the first families within the neocon/liberal interventionist firmament is the Kagans, Robert and Frederick. Frederick is a Senior Fellow at the neocon American Enterprise Institute and his wife Kimberly heads the bizarrely named Institute for the Study of War. Victoria Nuland, wife of Robert, is currently the Senior Counselor at the Albright Stonebridge Group and a Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution. That means that Victoria aligns primarily as a liberal interventionist, as does her husband, who is also at Brookings. She is regarded as a protégé of Hillary Clinton and currently works with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who once declared that killing 500,000 Iraqi children using sanctions was “worth it.” Nuland also has significant neocon connections through her having been a member of the staff assembled by Dick Cheney.

Nuland, many will recall, was the driving force behind efforts to destabilize the Ukrainian government of President Viktor Yanukovych in 2013-2014. Yanukovych, an admittedly corrupt autocrat, nevertheless became Prime Minister after a free election. Nuland, who was the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the State Department, provided open support to the Maidan Square demonstrators opposed to Yanukovych’s government, to include media friendly appearances passing out cookies on the square to encourage the protesters.

Nuland openly sought regime change for Ukraine by brazenly supporting government opponents in spite of the fact that Washington and Kiev had ostensibly friendly relations. It is hard to imagine that any U.S. administration would tolerate a similar attempt by a foreign nation to interfere in U.S. domestic politics, particularly if it were backed by a $5 billion budget, but Washington has long believed in a global double standard for evaluating its own behavior.

Nuland is most famous for her foul language when referring to the potential European role in managing the unrest that she and the National Endowment for Democracy had helped create in Ukraine. For Nuland, the replacement of the government in Kiev was only the prelude to a sharp break and escalating conflict with the real enemy, Moscow, over Russia’s attempts to protect its own interests in Ukraine, most particularly in Crimea.

And make no mistake about Nuland’s broader intention at that time to expand the conflict and directly confront Russia. In Senate testimony she cited how the administration was “providing support to other frontline states like Moldova and Georgia.” Her use of the word “frontline” is suggestive.

Victoria Nuland was playing with fire. Russia, as the only nation with the military capability to destroy the U.S., was and is not a sideshow like Saddam Hussein’s Iraq or the Taliban’s Afghanistan. Backing Moscow into a corner with no way out by using threats and sanctions is not good policy. Washington has many excellent reasons to maintain a stable relationship with Moscow, including counter-terrorism efforts, and little to gain from moving in the opposite direction. Russia is not about to reconstitute the Warsaw Pact and there is no compelling reason to return to a Cold War footing by either arming Ukraine or permitting it to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Victoria Nuland has just written a long article for July/August issue of Foreign Affairs magazine on the proper way for the United States manage what she sees as the Russian “threat.” It is entitled “How a Confident America Should Deal With Russia.” Foreign Affairs, it should be observed, is an establishment house organ produced by the Council on Foreign Relations which provides a comfortable perch for both neocons and liberal interventionists.

Nuland’s view is that the United States lost confidence in its own “ability to change the game” against Vladimir Putin, who has been able to play “a weak hand well because the United States and its allies have let him, allowing Russia to violate arms control treaties, international law, the sovereignty of its neighbors, and the integrity of elections in the United States and Europe… Washington and its allies have forgotten the statecraft that won the Cold War and continued to yield results for many years after. That strategy required consistent U.S. leadership at the presidential level, unity with democratic allies and partners, and a shared resolve to deter and roll back dangerous behavior by the Kremlin. It also included incentives for Moscow to cooperate and, at times, direct appeals to the Russian people about the benefits of a better relationship. Yet that approach has fallen into disuse, even as Russia’s threat to the liberal world has grown.”

What Nuland writes would make perfect sense if one were to share her perception of Russia as a rogue state threatening the “liberal world.” She sees Russian rearmament under Putin as a threat even though it was dwarfed by the spending of NATO and the U.S. She shares her fear that Putin might seek “…reestablishing a Russian sphere of influence in eastern Europe and from vetoing the security arrangements of his neighbors. Here, a chasm soon opened between liberal democracies and the still very Soviet man leading Russia, especially on the subject of NATO enlargement. No matter how hard Washington and its allies tried to persuade Moscow that NATO was a purely defensive alliance that posed no threat to Russia, it continued to serve Putin’s agenda to see Europe in zero-sum terms.”

Nuland’s view of NATO enlargement is so wide of the mark that it borders on being a fantasy. Of course, Russia would consider a military alliance on its doorstep to be a threat, particularly as a U.S. Administration had provided assurances that expansion would not take place. She goes on to suggest utter nonsense, that Putin’s great fear over the NATO expansion derives from his having “…always understood that a belt of increasingly democratic, prosperous states around Russia would pose a direct challenge to his leadership model and risk re-infecting his own people with democratic aspirations.”

Nuland goes on and on in a similar vein, but her central theme is that Russia must be confronted to deter Vladimir Putin, a man that she clearly hates and depicts as if he were a comic book version of evil. Some of her analysis is ridiculous, as “Russian troops regularly test the few U.S. forces left in Syria to try to gain access to the country’s oil fields and smuggling routes. If these U.S. troops left, nothing would prevent Moscow and Tehran from financing their operations with Syrian oil or smuggled drugs and weapons.”

Like most zealots, Nuland is notably lacking in any sense of self-criticism. She conspired to overthrow a legitimately elected democratic government in Ukraine because it was considered too friendly to Russia. She accuses the Kremlin of having “seized” Crimea, but fails to see the heavy footprint of the U.S. military in Afghanistan and Iraq and as a regional enabler of Israeli and Saudi war crimes. One wonders if she is aware that Russia, which she sees as expansionistic, has only one overseas military base while the United States has more than a thousand.

Nuland clearly chooses not to notice the White House’s threats against countries that do not toe the American line, most recently Iran and Venezuela, but increasingly also China on top of perennial enemy Russia. None of those nations threaten the United States and all the kinetic activity and warnings are forthcoming from a gentleman named Mike Pompeo, speaking from Washington, not from “undemocratic” leaders in the Kremlin, Tehran, Caracas or Beijing.

Victoria Nuland recommends that “The challenge for the United States in 2021 will be to lead the democracies of the world in crafting a more effective approach to Russia—one that builds on their strengths and puts stress on Putin where he is vulnerable, including among his own citizens.” Interestingly, that might be regarded as seeking to interfere in the workings of a foreign government, reminiscent of the phony case made against Russia in 2016. And it is precisely what Nuland did in fact do in Ukraine.

Nuland has a lot more to say in her article and those who are interested in the current state of interventionism in Washington should not ignore her. Confronting Russia as some kind of ideological enemy is a never-ending process that leaves both sides poorer and less free. It is appropriate for Moscow to have an interest in what goes on right on top of its border while the United States five thousand miles away and possessing both a vastly larger economy and armed forces can, one would think, relax a bit and unload the burden of being the world’s self-appointed policeman.

  1. This is a great overview, but Americans cannot understand these truths after hours of constant propaganda in our media. For example, Hillary Clinton and President Obama destroyed and looted Africa’s most prosperous nation in 2011 that resulted in tens of thousands of deaths of innocents. This is not in dispute, it is just ignored despite daily stories about the chaos in Libya. Imagine if Black Lives Matters dared protest against this destruction and looting of Africa’s wealthiest nation and demanded that Clinton and Obama be arrested for war crimes.

  2. Fact is that many leaders in history did solve the inside problems of their country by outside war.
    There is certainly a bit of elevated temperature.

    Thank you for another great article.

    …but…
    … there is one thing…

    You wrote:

    “… It is hard to imagine that any U.S. administration would tolerate a similar attempt by a foreign nation to interfere in U.S. domestic politics, particularly if it were backed by a $5 billion budget, …”

    As you yourself have pointed out, more than once, in fact, there actually is a foreign country which, more than, interferes in U.S. domestic policy, some would estimate, effectively controls it, and foreign policy, as well.

    While it would a bit of an effort to monetize the full amount spent on this effort, I personally would not be a bit surprised if it were significantly larger than $5 billion, and despite that, one could imagine, quite a bargain in terms of their ROI; it could in fact be considerably less than the overt transfer of sovereign U.S. wealth to that foreign government every year.

    The past administrations, either every one, or almost every one, going back as far as Truman, certainly, but the trend was already well established during the puppet presidency of Woodrow Wilson.

    I’d love to read your rejoinder.

    An admirable sentiment, except that the BLM movement appears to be little more than a vehicle for staged chaos nurtured behind the scenes by more war criminals with a hidden agenda.

    And more’s the pity, because there are hordes of high-ranking war criminals in the Exceptional Nation that richly deserve burning at the stake. In the Libyan context, Muammar Gaddafi was not only a great leader but also a good man, who was doing great things not only for his own people but also for the community of African nations.

    If you’re going to have a dictator, make sure you get a good one. Gaddafi was a good one.

    Trump not so much, but Clinton was and is horrifically evil.

    You forgot to mention that virtually all of the neocon/liberal interventionist “intellectuals”on your list identify as Jewish, which means they see themselves as having Hebrew backgrounds, which not only gives them an Israel First/Zionist orientation, but which means their hatred of “anti-Semitic” Russia is pathological and ancestral, which means their hatred of “anti-Semitic” Europeans is pathological and ancestral, which means their hatred of “anti-Semitic” white people is pathological and ancestral, which means their desire for nuclear war between whites is pathological and ancestral, which means they believe they can win a nuclear war (perhaps by sheltering in bunker state Israel) and emerge as the anointed “chosen” intellectual priest class of the world…

    So there is a kind of internal logic or rationalism to their insanity, in the same way that any insular, imperious elite suffering from megalomania and delusions of grandeur can develop internal, echo chamber “logic” that is (objectively) insane. The difference is, their insane “logic” is additionally sanctioned by their particular God or their particular History or their version of God/History.

    Hence, with this cult, we not only get insular, echo-chamber imperialism, but we additionally get quasi-religious, messianic fanaticism that will view any nuclear war as pre-ordained fate in service of delivering the Chosen Ones to the world.

    And half of America thinks Trump is nuts? It should look at the “intellectual Jews” it’s so desperate to consign its fate to.

  9. Posturing. What else can this be, coming from the lips of a Jewish woman? It all just sounds so ridiculous. What authority does she have? Only the threat of force, reckless force dispensed with abandon. That’s not authority. It’s insanity.

    Another critique of US foreign policy regarding Russia, all referenced under the famous “cookies and milk” response of Ms. Nuland in Kyiv. Lucky for Russia that she wasn’t doling out scoops of ice cream instead?

    For Nuland, the replacement of the government in Kiev was only the prelude to a sharp break and escalating conflict with the real enemy, Moscow, over Russia’s attempts to protect its own interests in Ukraine, most particularly in Crimea.

    I applaud the US response of supporting Ukraine’s aspirations for a freer more Western oriented country and that it continues to support Ukraine’s territorial interests over those of Russia’s. It’s time for the Giraldis and Cohens of the world to shed their Russian fig leaf covering and be exposed as the gutless appeasers that they really are.

  11. Victoria Nuland (her family name formerly Nudelman) and her blood-thirsty, thieving zionist neocon buddies would love nothing more than to tear Russia apart and finish the rape and plunder of that country first begun under Russia’s ‘reformer’ president, the idiot Yeltsin, wherein mostly jewish Russian and American oligarchs systematically stole what amounts to about $330 billion dollars of Russia’s wealth.

    That these zionist neocon murderers and thieves would put the world at risk to achieve their goals is no surprise, as one need only look at the 3,000+ innocent American lives, including many Jews, that were snuffed out on 9/11, all to set the stage for the US and allies’ “War of Terror” against mainly the enemies of Israel, and to line the pockets of the ever-growing Military-Information-Security Complex. Innocent lives mean absolutely nothing to these monsters.

    The campaign against Russia is simply another necessary link in the chain that binds the world to the PNAC vision of using the US and the West to establish and maintain what is essentially a Jewish supremacist movement that barely conceals itself and its nefarious agenda from the useful idiot goyim so necessary to carry forward the PNAC’s plan for world domination. And the chubby little Ms Nudelman is just another tireless zionist mouthpiece for this ugly, obnoxious and risky agenda……

    A major indicator of how long-term foreign policy goals are actually set by the US was revealed when Obama declared Venezuela a threat to national security in 2015!
    http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/obama-declares-venezuela-national-security-threat-imposes-sanctions

    Venezuela? A threat to US national security?? Sounds completely absurd.

    But if you consider your ‘national security’ being threatened whenever any scarce natural resources in the world are not in your or in your client states’ posession, then anthing which interferes with that is a “threat!” Iran (before 2003), Iraq, and Russia certainly fit the bill of being enemies.

    This explanation, for me, is much more realistic than to think the neocons are solely driven by cold war mentalities.

    The neocons are particularly peeved at Russia because through their oligarchs, they had the crown jewels in their hand before Putin wrested it out. It was always clear from the beginning that the overthrow of the Ukraine government was always just a stepping stone to the overthrow of Putin in Russia.

    Russia is truly the mother load, with control over its natural resources, you control China, undermine the Middle Eastern Arab states and if necessary control Europe financially. Besides the direct political control you then exercise, on an economic level, the productive people of the world Germany and China then work for you.

    Nuland and her ilk will be spewing their dangerous nonsense and banging the drums of war like homicidal energizer bunnies until hell freezes over. Meanwhile, “from Atlantic to Pacific, the insanity is terrific,” as the nation devolves in an engineered mass hysteria. As things go down the tubes, the Empire will get ever more desperate, rather than easing back a bit on the throttle. With Donald Boy and Sec. of State “Plump-piehole” egging on Israeli expansionist dreams and drone-executing whomever they please–what could possibly go wrong? I’m waiting for one, just one, European power to call bullshit on the U.S. and put a stop to this madness. Fat chance of that.

    I think we are in the Empire’s desperation phase. The Project for a New American Century (PNAC) report that called for and got another Pearl Harbor also spoke affectionately of creating bioweapons to target any upstart nation encroaching on U.S. hegemony. If the bastards could get away with 9/11, a most obvious inside job, what’s not to like about the disruption and confusion of bioweapons? The ruthless evil we are up against is truly staggering.

    I think this would be the most epic troll ever. Especially if Venezuela then paraded some nervous spook and declared him the “legitimate president of the United States”.

    Or maybe, kek, just appoint Bernie the real president. “For two elections the corrupt system has denied this true hero his rightful position. Enough!

  17. Confronting Russia as some kind of ideological enemy is a never-ending process that leaves both sides poorer and less free.

    Well said.

    It’s also really strange to portray Russia in this demonic fashion. When you see it up close, there are things you don’t like or question, things that are bizarre, absurdly inefficient, and outright abhorrent, but it’s far from the big threatening geopolitical beast they make it out to be. It’s more of a joke which even Russians understand.

    There’s a phrase from the USSR that someone taught me – аналогов нет, “no analogues” or nothing comparable, referring to the quality of their military armaments, specifically rockets. Obvious nonsense pushed by the USSR to bolster faith in the populace, it lives on today in Kremlin propaganda, but is widely regarded as the bullshit it is, which is why videos containing the phrase itself are banned on YouTube Russia.

    In short Russia, as a meme, is a “paper tiger” propped up largely by Washingtonian psychodrama and will-to-power. Washington doesn’t want Russia out of Crimea because they love the Ukrainians; they want them out because Ukraine is a major destination for American corporate venality. Absent interference from Washington, the Kremlin might undertake some foreign adventures in neighboring countries, but for the most part would continue on its obvious path of “peacefully” melding with the Chinese economy, like everyone else.

    There is no white nation free of the forces of decline set in motion by white success and the overall technological arc of history. “Russia” is nothing more than a scarecrow for the Washington establishment – which it could just as well drop, as they no longer need justifications or approval from the people – and signifies only a livid hunger for the last major market they’ve yet to absorb directly.

    It is difficult to read past an opening sentence such as this one.

    I have seen it constantly. I call it the “Back-handed Trump hating fool” approach. The many writers who employ this method in their articles appear to believe that they literally have to make it clear to their readers that of course they (the writers) think Trump is a moron/cad/crook/criminal/mentally ill, BUT!!!

    Then they proceed with the rest of their article.

    But don’t you (the reader) dare think that they think anything good about Trump!

    This is childish bullshit and am I the only one who is completely sick of it?

    Hey, Phil, how about you leave out the stupid back-handed Trump hating nonsense? You don’t need to write it, but if you do? Have your editors cut it from your writing. It just makes you look stupid, and many won’t even continue reading your article. As they should. No one deserves to be read who would write such facile, petty nonsense.

    If we “follow the money”, Hillary’s campaign was financed by the Israelis. An honest post mortem on her loss would have focused attention on the huge influence of Israeli money on American elections. The faked focus on Russian “meddling” could have been to divert any talk of election “meddling” away from Israel’s truly vast “meddling”. (The Israelis routinely distract by accusing others of their own crimes.) The Israelis control both the DNC and the corporate media, so “Russiagate” could roll on virtually evidence-free. Fox was allowed to criticize the “Russiagate” attack on Trump, but only to keep the kabuki conflict boiling. Neither side ever mentioned Israel’s “meddling”, or in any way criticized Israel. To the contrary, Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity even agreed that Netanyahu would be a great American president. So why did Israeli asset John Bolton just attack Trump, after Trump has given Israel so much, including assassinating Soleimani? Maybe it’s Trump’s refusal to launch Israel’s next war? Maybe they don’t really trust Trump? Maybe because on 9/11 Trump said he didn’t believe planes could have brought down the twin towers, and that explosives must have been involved? Could Trump be in a deadly dance with the Israelis, riding a tiger?

    “… It is hard to imagine that any U.S. administration would tolerate a similar attempt by a foreign nation to interfere in U.S. domestic politics, particularly if it were backed by a $5 billion budget, …”

    We could chalk this up to a lack of imagination on the part of our intrepid former CIA scribbler, but anyone paying even cursory attention couldn’t help but conclude that the Obama administration didn’t just tolerate, it choreographed, a plot against Trump in league with foreign intelligence services.

    U.K., Ukraine, Italy, Australia, Russia, and, yes, Israel.

    I’m confident that neither a lack of imagination or garden-variety ignorance explains Giraldi’s narrative weaving. However open or obscured, staying on the remove Trump by any means necessary team remains the smart, if treasonous, play.

    You’ll note that Russia is included in this no doubt incomplete list. It really is a fool’s errand to try to surmise for any of these foreign participants what of their actions were opportunism as opposed to resigned self-protectiveness,

    But, make no mistake, every single one, foreign powers, whether allies or adversaries, and individuals and purportedly non-state entities, was promised goodies at the expense of the American national interest.

    That’s anyone’s guess at this point. We know surveillance state bottom-feeder Glenn Simpson got at least $6M, and Stefan “Guttman” Halper about $1M. What do you think was promised to foreign powers for playing ball? In the case of Russia, unless I miss my mark, Nord Stream II was merely the down payment.

    Why do our ‘foreign interventionists,’ our ‘permanent war for globalist perpetual peace’ crusaders, our Neocons, hate Russia so thoroughly and so centrally to their very beings?

    First, our imperialists are the direct descendants intellectually, spiritually, and morally of the first WASP Empire, the first Anglo-Zionist Empire: the British Empire. And they have used their high IQs that are focused on grasping the One Ring to Rule Them All to locate where the Brit WASP Empire failed to achieve its goals, which allowed the collapse starting with World War 1. They are obsessed with that because they believe that if they can achieve what the Brit WASPs failed to achieve, then they can make the Anglo-Zionist Empire 2.0 as permanent as the Roman Empire – a Thousand Year Reich.

    And that is spiritually what all WASP imperialism, all Anglo-Zionist imperialism back to at least the Anglo-Saxon Puritans, is about: replacing the Roman Empire, which means replacing that which culturally led to, and was absolutely indispensable to, Christendom.

    What they wish to redo and achieve that the Brit WASPs failed in is winning The Great Game: becoming total master of Eur-Asia. And that requires taking out Russia and China. In the 19th century, China was sicker than even the Ottoman Turkish Empire. To play the long game to destroy Russia, the Brit WASPs allied with the Turks to prevent Russia acting to push the Ottomans out of Europe. Brit WASP secret service in eastern Europe was focused on reducing Russia significantly right through the Bolshevik Revolution, even with Russia naively, stupidly allied with the British Empire in World War 1.

    Our ‘foreign interventionists’ have seen Russia under Putin rise from the ashes, and they intend to destroy Russia once and for all, so they then can reduce China and win The Great Game. And thus make Anglo-Zionist Empire greater than Roman Empire.

    Second, our Neocons are the spiritual and intellectual descendants not just of Trotskyites, but of all Russia-hating Jews with ties to Central and/or Eastern Europe. For them, Russia always is the evil that must be destroyed for the good of Jews.

    Everything at its bedrock is about theology, is about the choice between Christ and Christendom or the Chaos of anti-Christendom.

    By the way, I will give you the commanding heights Sad Story in absurdly abridged form.

    China won the post-Cold War period hands down. From Tiananmen Square to Ising power on the cusp of global hegemony in a quarter century. With the US paying the bill.

    While there were clear indications to any honest observer years before, Snowden’s coming out signaled the public next phase of a years long operation in which the USG built a global surveillance apparatus, including not the least of Americans, and then lost the whole shebang to Russia, China and God Knows Who Else.

    My view then — and I have seen nothing to even suggest my informed speculation was wrong — was that the sky was the limit in terms of what the powers that be would gift in terms of the national interest to protect themselves from exposure and a reckoning.

    I would like anyone who disagrees to otherwise explain how USG policy became one of driving China and Russia into a strategic alliance. To say nothing of putting obviously compromised individuals, foreign assets, like Brennan at the apex of power.

    Obama was also the first president to set up a regular Tuesday morning session to review a list of American citizens who would benefit from being killed by drone.

    Trump fired John Bolton. Pompeo is at most a shadow of Bolton. That is rather the opposite of resurgence. If the author could let go of his #NeverTrump bias he would be able to see that Trump has run the NeoCons out of the GOP.

    Trump tried to remove troops from Syria and Afghanistan and ran into Deep State obstructionism.

    The Globalists tried to trick Trump into a Syria expansion by creating a Turkey/Syria battle through areas controlled by U.S. Troops. Trump refused to be manipulated and pulled U.S. Troops out of the kill sack. Does anyone still believe that myth about ‘protecting Syrian oil’? Only the mentally dim accepted that ludicrous cover story. It was flimsy excuse to relocate out of the Deep State trap.

    Prior U.S. administrations created huge problems in the ME by toppling Saddam and emboldening Iran’s theocracy. “Cut and Run” would guarantee a nuclear arms race in the region. Trump’s containment of Iranian colonial expansionism is working, albeit slowly. The Rial continues to slide (now at ~200,000 to the USD). At some point, the Iranian people will choose to get rid of their failed leaders and rejoin civilized society. Until then Trump’s containment is better than a Biden invasion.

    This “just” in: “War is the health of the state” Randolph Bourne https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randolph_Bourne

    Meaning, if you have governments in the first place, sooner or later, you will have war, either on the people inside a country [eg the war on drugs], or on citizens of another country, or both at the same time [i.e. what we have now].

    Outside of complete dissolution of all states [ preferable in my opinion, but unlikely given the general mindset of the brainwashed masses worldwide], and given the systemic need of all states everywhere for evermore wars on their own, and on others populations, the only [ imperfect, and perhaps temporary], solution I see is to 95% downsize the federal government and restore the constitution and bill of rights and to thereby restrict the federal government to its original limits, and to even design new, more effective ways to prevent the federal governments further expansion beyond those original limits/chains.

    “..the very idea of the State itself is poisonous, evil, and intrinsically destructive. But, like so many bad ideas, people have come to assume it’s part of the cosmic firmament, when it’s really just a monstrous scam.

    It’s a fraud, like your belief that you have a right to free speech because of the First Amendment, or a right to be armed because of the Second Amendment. No, you don’t. The U.S. Constitution is just an arbitrary piece of paper… entirely apart from the fact the whole thing is now just a dead letter. You have a right to free speech and to be armed because they’re necessary parts of being a free person, not because of what a political document says.

    Even though the essence of the State is coercion, people have been taught to love and respect it. Most people think of the State in the quaint light of a grade school civics book. They think it has something to do with “We the People” electing a Jimmy Stewart character to represent them.

    That ideal has always been a pernicious fiction, because it idealizes, sanitizes, and legitimizes an intrinsically evil and destructive institution, which is based on force. As Mao once said, political power comes out of the barrel of a gun.” Doug Casey

This is not the Cold War: in the Cold War the United States and USSR were able to keep peace, a balance of power, an equilibrium where neither side’s vital interests were threatened. Russia had a buffer zone: not today. America was at the height of its global economic power: today it is being overtaken by China. In the Cold War the big powers avoided nuclear Armageddon – though at times appeared to come close – because they were able to. The misguided thinking today is: “we got through the Cold War we can get this”. This is not a re-run of 1945-1991: it is the lead-in to the holocaust that period skillfully avoided.

Did Trump know that an Iraqi leader would be with Solmeimani? Why would de-escalation of tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia be bad for Trump who has been avoiding staring wars?

    Giraldi’s first paragraph is spot on. But after corona dealing the economy a heavy blow, I don’t think Trump will start a war before the election. I don’t think he would have done that otherwise either, though there was some risk. Trump has caved numerous times, he is an idioht when it comes to hiring his enemies hoping to appease them, but there is no question that he opposes mass immigration and invasions.

    I suppose most people here know this, but let’s look at how many of the pro-war names mentioned belong to the 2.5 % ”Chosen”:

    George Bush
    Donald Rumsfeld
    Hillary Clinton
    Michael Ledeen (White, but studied history under *George Mosse, immigrated from Germany)
    Reuel Gerecht
    Dan Senor

    *Richard Perle
    *Paul Wolfowitz (The architect of the Afghan-Iraq invasions, who gathered support for them in Congress and organized the pro-war communication)
    *Douglas Feith (would have been the Sec. of Defense if people hadn’t objected too much, as he was infamous after the Iran-Contra affair)
    *Eliot Abrams
    *Lewish ”Scooter” Libby of the dead eyes
    *Robert Kagan
    *Frederick Kagan
    *Victoria Nuland
    *Madeleine Albright (Half a million dead Iraqi children from starvation sanctions and bombing the infrastructure for twelve years was “worth it”)

    That’s six Whites and nine Tribe.

    If those nine hadn’t existed millions would have been alive today, there would have been no flood of Somalis, Afghans, Iraqis and Syrians to Europe, and the U.S. and the Middle East would have been far better off.

    I see Geo has already pointed out the obvious absurdity that any of these criminal were in the least bit worried bout US security. If anything, they were overtly sacrificing US security on behalf of an enemy state. Not sure why you write stuff like that Mr. G, unless you just expect people to ignore it as perfunctory tripe, but there are some, no doubt, who read those words and assume you are actually saying they care about the US. When you and I both know they don’t.

    Clinton and Obama were so-called liberal interventionists who sought to export something called democracy to other countries in an attempt to make them more like Peoria.

    Nope.

    They were and are both amoral, opportunistic zio-whores, whose only ideology is what’s good for Clinton and Obama, respectively. Clinton didn’t bomb Serbia out of some humanitarian love of freedom and democracy, and Obama didn’t destroy Libya and Syria except to serve his zio-masters. Duh.

    So the difference between neocons and liberal interventionists is one of style rather than substance. And, by either yardstick all-in-all, Trump looks pretty good,

    I was telling my gal the other day, that Trump could be The One to End the Fed, by allowing Goldman Sachs and the rest of them to feast at the Treasury to their heart’s content.

    I reminded her of Jackson’s quote about hurting ten thousand families, in order to save fifty thousand. And in a similar vein, Trump could be setting up the collapse of the ZUS economy, which will hurt hundreds of millions, but if he could collapse the dollar, he very well might save billions of people’s lives.

    “Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out.”

    Nuland is most famous for her foul language when referring to the potential European role

    I beg to differ, Mr. G.

    I would posit that her most famous utterings were when she imperiously demanded that “Yats is our guy”. IOW, the way she was promoting “democracy” in Ukraine, was by corrupting the system with 5 billions of tax payer lucre- to the point where she, *personally* could decide who- (Jewish banker) would be president in a nation thousands of miles away. That’s how the ZUS promotes “democracy” in foreign lands. (and, I suspect that it was the way that call was leaked, that is the fount of all the rage at Russia, for “Russian hacking’, breaking long-standing diplomatic protocols against exposing other nation’s treachery and corruption to the ‘little people’).

    Nuland’s view … …. Russia to violate arms control treaties, international law, the sovereignty of its neighbors, and the integrity of elections in the United States and Europe…

    for Nuland to talk about ‘International law and the ‘integrity of European elections’.. is like Jerry Sandusky lecturing people on child welfare.

    That strategy required consistent U.S. leadership at the presidential level,

    OK, so not only Nuland but also John Bolton is screeching that Trump is the disaster of our times.

    Not since John McCain has a mad dog Zionist insider been so full of hate for Trump. Hmm..

    Archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell made alliance with Jewish bankers, then congregated in the Netherlands.

    Jews are not parasites on WASP culture. WASP culture is born of a Judaizing heresy, and Jews therefore have always been partners in WASP culture.

    You need to spend a large amount of time learning the rise of Jews with the growth of the British Empire. Then put that with the rise of Jews as part of the American empire.

    And then unless you are brain dead, you will see that WASP culture and Jews go together. Jews are not parasites on WASP culture. Jews and WASPs are symbiotic, at the expense of 90-95% of non-WASP whites.

    And the saddest part — the punchline that proves how stupid we are — is that we never profit from the invasions we are cynically ordered to conduct. The bounty always goes to the swindlers pulling the strings, and we, as the agents of banditry, time and again, are always left to suffer the same fate of the people we have robbed when we are robbed ourselves, of not only our treasures, but of our dignity, shortly before we are robbed of our lives.

    It is the way history has always gone. The ignorant masses are persuaded to commit the crimes of the rich and as the unwitting perpetrators, we ultimately suffer the same fate as the victims, while the rich snicker in their palaces and plot their next swindle.

The Zionist Jews drive all the wars and conflicts, foment the false flags like the fake Floyd, Sandy Hook, Los Vegas etc. The Global Jew Bankers made immune from prosecution by our shabbos goy Congress have stolen trillions of the the country’s wealth. First after 911 (also a false flag for Greater Israel) then with the bailouts for the super rich in 08 and now the monumental 6 trillion theft for their Wall St. buddies under cover of the fake Corona virus.

    The goyim must be propagandized and the target demonized before the Israeli Foreign Legian (U.S. military) is sent in to force another extortion for the Jews. this is what they did twice to Germany and to Japan. Same thing in Iraq and Libya. The Zionists have so far failed in Syria and Iran. Even after getting Israel’s best friend ever in the White House who abrogated our treaty with the Iranians and has lied constantly about both countries, launched rockets against the Syrians and accused Assad of gassing his own people.

    The Zionsits cannot make progress without war, conflict and hatred. Once the goyim are whipped up with enough war sentiment against the Russians and Chinese and the two countries have built up sufficient military capability they will most likely join forces with a nuclear attack against Jewmerica. this will probably result in a stalemate that can then be used as a precursor to the global totalitarian NWO.

    The whites of South Africa made the same mistake. The whites of Europe are very busy also making the exact same mistake, just as they are in North America and Oceana.

    From March 1991 through mid-June 1999, Balkan wars raged. Yugoslavia “balkanized” into seven countries. They include Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia.

    Agree with the first part, disagree with the second. The reasons israel’s trump colonials have not started new militsry invasions are mainly two. The trump reime is in the middle of a military modernization. The american zionazi colony fell behind militarily as they ran proxy terrorists and drug mafia support/colonial policing ops. Fighting wars againat those who can actually hurt them back became obsolete, or so the “end of history” neocons figured. Now they are outclassed and they can’t pick on someone capable of shooting back effectively.

    As for the second part, the likud colonial trump regime is doing its best to attack zionazia”s rivals any way they can mimus actually sending in troops. Times have changed, the oligarchs do war by other means than troop invasion now. The economic, biological and psywar aspects are being used full tilt by israeloamerica. What they lack the means to do on the field of battle, israel’s war criminals and quislings are more than making up for it by other means.

    I agree with all your posts.

    I’d just add to this one, that by bombing Serbia, (on behalf of Muslim invaders), they were accomplishing several things.. They were ending the post WWII International Laws against unilateral military might by strong nations against weaker ones in Europe. With that act, they declared with bombs that the ZUS is now The Unilateral Power, and that the International Laws against Aggressive War was now moot.

    By bombing a White Christian nation on behalf of Islam, they were also tossing a bone to Islam, as a trade off for the ongoing genocide in Palestine. Who in our times is going to complain about bombing white people? And Muslims would cheer it.

    Also, as ((Gen. Wesley Clark)) explained about his bombing campaign on Serbia:

    “There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That’s a 19th-century idea and we are trying to transition it into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multi-ethnic states.”
    – NATO’s Supreme Commander, Gen. Wesley Clark

    so there were myriad reasons for why ((they)) bombed Serbia into handing over its ancient and sacred lands.

    Democracy is a subversive term used by the Zionists, MSM and many politicians as well as lots of other people that should know better. Democracy results in mob rule that will always lead to tyranny.

    The word democracy does not occur in either the Declaration of Independence or it’s companion document the Constitution. That is because the founders believed it to be the worst form of government. James Madison stated that democracies “have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and in general have been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”

    It is no mistake that the word democracy is widely used. Democracies work in the Elites favor because they can steer the chaos then put their system in place when the democracy falls apart.

    The founders established a system of sovereign states in a limited Republic of laws. That was the foundation of our success, not democracy.

    “Grabbing the Breadbasket of Europe The East-West competition over Ukraine involves the control of natural resources, including uranium and other minerals, as well as geopolitical issues such as Ukraine’s membership in NATO. The stakes around Ukraine’s vast agricultural sector, the world’s third largest exporter of corn and fifth largest exporter of wheat,constitute a critical factor that has been often overlooked.” Whereas Ukraine does not allow the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture,Article 404 of the EU agreement, which relates to agriculture, includes a clause that has generally gone unnoticed: it indicates, among other things, that both parties will cooperate to extend the use of biotechnologies. There is no doubt that this provision meets the expectations of the agribusiness industry. As observed by Michael Cox, research director at the investment bank Piper Jaffray, “Ukraine and, to a wider extent, Eastern Europe, are among the “most promising growth markets for farm-equipment giant Deere, as well as seed producers Monsanto and DuPont.”” https://www.oaklandinstitute.org/sites/oaklandinstitute.org/files/OurBiz_Brief_Ukraine.pdf

    “Russia” is, for US intelligence ALSO code for “French”.

The Americans cant be too blatant about it , but that is what is going on; anti Russia animus and propaganda is also anti French animus and propaganda. [ during the cold war, my French relative who had been a communist , went to Russia to see what it was like. She was disappointed .When she subsequently tried to visit my family here in the US, she was stopped art the airport and told she could not enter the US because she had been to Russia. This was the 1960’s.Apparently this two countries and people were not polarized as the US and the soviets were. A kind of mutual respect or even admiration existed perhaps. Maybe I’m barking up the wrong tree, but that has been my sense for decades.

    Only a complete and utter incompetent (or a rabid Ukrainian nationalist) can call Ukraine an independent state. It is de-facto a colony of the West. A debt slave.

    I applaud the US response of supporting Ukraine’s aspirations for a freer, more Western-oriented country and that it continues to support Ukraine’s territorial interests over those of Russia’s.

    This was not about supporting Ukrainian aspirations for a freer, more Western-oriented country. It is about kicking out Russia from Ukrainian markets and plundering Ukraine all by themselves. Mainly by Germany and the USA — to major players of Euromaydan color revolution. For Germans this is return to “Drang nach Osten” on a new level, on the level of neoliberal neocolonialism.

    They used Western nationalists as their fifth column, but Western Ukrainian suffered from the results no less then people in Eastern Ukraine. Many now try to move to Kiev, Kiev region and further East in order to escape poverty and unemployment. Seasonal labor to Russia (mainly builders) diminished rapidly. Train communication now is blocked, and for Western Ukraine only Poland now represents a chance to earn money for the family to survive the winter.

    For the USA this is first of all about selling Ukraine expensive weaponry, wasting precious Ukrainian resources on permanent hostility with Russia (with Donbas conflict as a real win to further the USA geopolitical ambitions — in line with the “Full spectrum dominance” doctrine) , cornering Ukrainian energy market (uranium supplies for power stations, etc.), destruction, or buy-out of a few competing industries other than extracting industries and maquiladoras, getting better conditions for the EU exports and multinationals operating in Ukraine (and initially with plans for re-export products to Russia tax free) and increasing the country debt to “debt slave” level.

    In other words this is a powerful kick in a chin by Obama to Putin. Not a knockdown, but very close.

    For Ukraine first of all that means rapid accumulation of a huge external debt — conditions of economic slavery, out of which there is no escape. Ukrainian people paid a very dear price for their Euromaydan illusions. They became mass slave labor in Poland. Prostitutes in Germany. Seasonal picker of fruits in some other EU countries (GB, France). A new European blacks, so to speak.

    The level of fleecing Ukraine by the USA after Euromaidan can be compared only with fleecing of Libya. The currency dropped 300%, and 80% Ukrainians now live in abysmal poverty, while neoliberal oligarchs allied with the West continue to plunder the country. Gold reserves were moved to the USA.

I was in the US Military 69 -71 so I was accepted and even today I am accepted , but by Russian military guys here- though not as much – lol. Anyways, when the base here was ” trading hands ” I asked to buy any left over kalishnakovs, that the Ukie guys may want to sell. These guys were so underpaid { 75 t0 130 bucks a month} I thought they would jump at the chance for a couple hundred buck trade. They didn’t have enough weapons to even go around the base – Zip – they always depended on Sevastopol { Ru Navy/Marines }to defend Crimea. I asked if all the bases in Crimea had the same problem – they said everywhere in Ukraine ! Now, I know Ukies enough to know that when they de-armed – they didn’t/ would never destroy any working weapons but they would sell them to anyone in the mid east , east Europe – etc. Why didn’t President Yanuk. surround Kyiv with the military and stop the bus loads of paid rioters from west Ukraine { Azov battalion ] from comin in ?

    I agree with 90% of what you wrote, butI would like to correct the above.

    Russia heavily subsidised Ukrainian energy imports for decades – gas and oil. In a similar fashion, Russia is doing this with Belarus until the present time. Russia is the only possible consumer of what Ukraine used to manufacture – a market that has disappeared. Gas turbines used to be made in Ukraine. Now, this has moved to Russia. Of course, the skilled Ukrainians went to Russia with their know-how.

    To the best of my knowledge the USSR was the only empire that actually subsidised its colonies – Poland, East Germany, Ukraine etc. Russia is far better off without them.

    I think they are still working together. We know that the Global Jew bankers and Wall St. established the Bolshevik (Jew) takeover. International Banker Jacob Schiff and one of Pres Wilson’s Jew handlers invested 20 million in the enterprise as confirmed by his great grandson, husband of Al Gore’s daughter. The Zionists were setting everything up for the plunder while the whole Soviet system was a house of cards only propped up by constant massive agricultural, industrial and financial aid while the Amer. people were constantly told by the Jew MSM about how powerful and dangerous they were.

    That particular Hegelian Dialectic ruse has been phased out (Lenin said the USSR was a transition) as we moved on to “The War on Terror.” Signing the Crimea over to the Ukraine by Breshnev in 1954 that had been under Russian control since before the U.S. was founded was part of the plan to set up future conflict. The Zionists always manufacture strife and conflict both at home and abroad. For the Jews to stick their nose in the Ukraine that they already control by using their American shabbos goy satellite is to be expected.

    Most people look at these staged events from a short term perspective. The Zionists are working years ahead to manage these crises. They will have to have a big one probably involving both Russia and China once they build up more militarily. That will most likely transition into the “global governance” that the Zioinist puppet politicians are always talking about.

Backing Moscow into a corner with no way out by using threats and sanctions is not good policy.

    Phil, that is the main issue–US doesn’t have wherewithal to do so. Not for many years now. Not only US doesn’t know much about Russia (especially economically), US lost any contact with realities domestically. US is not this super-pooper power which it thinks it is. US GDP, as an example, is not $23 trillion–a risible figure–US economy is dwarfed by that of China. Russia’s economy is smaller than that of US but it is smaller probably three-fold, not 10. So, one is forced then to ask a question–what the US can do to back Russia in corner? US is not even in top ten among Russia’s trade partners and Russia’s US Treasuries holding are “massive” $9 billion, that is as large as a pocket change. Militarily US cannot win anything in Eurasia if Russia gets involved, let alone fight Russia directly conventionally.

    — The U.S. Military gained high quality Electronic Intelligence by monitoring Maduro’s desperation flail.

    Maduro accidentally admitted the total failure of the Venezuela petro industry. It has been so devastated by decades of Socialist Utopian Rule that can longer refine its own kerosene.

    Look at the big picture. Venezuelan balance of trade is negative and Maduro is burning through the extremely limited foreign currency reserves. Kerosene exports from failing Iran to failed Venezuela have no material impact on balance of power between serious nations. Misdirection is part of strategy. 20/20 hindsight, it is obvious to all objective observers that the intelligent Trump never intended to act militarily against the civilian tankers.

That means, that in case of real escalation (God forbids) almost literally entering the address of houses of some baddies in US is just a matter of preparing a flight plan for a salvo of those missiles. There goes the neighborhood–that is if the warheads are conventional, they can also be nuclear? but we don’t want to go there;

    And it’s blacks, not whites, saying it.

    Kinda like the “two state solution.”

    The idea of a separate territory owned by blacks has its roots established near the end of the Civil War under a US government plan.

    Shaped by twenty black leaders in Georgia it never came to birth since President Johnson aborted it after Lincoln’s assassination.

    In Black American history the Plan is known as “40 Acres and a Mule” with its territory to be procured from former Confederate lands.
    But this time procurement should be expropriated from the Jews.

    I agree.

    On the sweat and blood of the US working man, (Jews don’t dig, you know), a “homeland” for Jews is maintained.

    Even though they won’t move there, the Jews want their lox and bagels served on an American platter.

    And on that platter they make sure that for all their posturing only Jewish Lives Matter.

    Farrakhan’s plan is a no-brainer.

    Divert the money that goes to Israel—4 billion a year for the next 10 years is what they’re bleeding the US taxpayer for—and use that money to fund a new black national homeland.

    Farrakhan’s vision for a black national territory is agronomic and self-sufficient, a “Jeffersonian” construct, which Farrakhan calls up.

    No BLM jive either…

    Farrakhan and his fellow blacks are proposing the only peaceful solution to the unceasing clash between blacks and whites that left-leaning Jews keep on hatching.

    Aren’t you tired?

    You want more of this?… that the Jewish media keeps on stoking?

    What will it take to make you see that the endless debate between the ‘left and the right’ is a Jewish scheme to keep them on top and you on the bottom?

    And they’ll keep scripting the slate until their hellish kingdom comes.

    Do you mean the staged set piece that was more or less prearranged by both sides?

    The Iranian attack blew up one helicopter and one hangar with no aircraft but some valuable support equipment. There were:
    — Zero trauma cases from direct injury (e.g. debris and shrapnel)
    — Eleven possible concussion injuries within the first 24 hours.

    The entire media circus that ‘found’ additional concussion cases was bogus.

    I am not a delusional NeoConDemocrat. I realize that the troops at the base has enough warning to get to cover, which is not always possible. The Ayatollah’s target selection was also highly predictable, which meant that the most valuable aircraft were no longer there.

    Khameni got a PR story he could use at home. The rest of the world saw the Iranian action as trivial. No response or escalation was required from the U.S.
    _____

    Trump is the President who has started — No New Foreign Wars

    He has no motivation to put boots on the ground in Iran, Venezuala, Libya or Ukraine. If enough of the Deep State can be drained from the swamp during his 2nd term, bringing home all troops from Syria and Afghanistan is highly likely.

    Trump inherited the Shia Crescent problem from his predecessors. Containment of Iranian expansionism is the least bad option. He extracted the U.S. from a potential Shia-Sunni conflict in Northern Syria. Erdogan rethought his plan when he realized there would be no NATO support.

    Regardless of how loud and grating Trump is when he speaks. Regardless of how offensive the SJW’s find his tweets. If one objectively looks at Trump’s actions, he has been much better on foreign policy that Obama and GW Bush.

    That no one gives him credit for his talents is actually a good thing. The more people underestimate Trump, the more he can accomplish.

    PEACE 😇

    And ethnic cleansing of bosnia/ herzegovina is a fact, despite the liars/ deniers posting here

    OK, I admit I’m not an expert on Bosnia /Herzegovina, (or anything else for that matter, outside the narrow purview of my field).

    I just know what was done to Serbia vis-à-vis Kosovo, and how criminal and portentous that war crime by Clinton was.

    Also, that region and its notorious strife, is responsible for a new word in the Western lexicon; ‘balkanization’, meaning that diversity was never anyone’s strength, and the whole notion of inviting in members of other religions or ethnicities or languages or tribal peculiarities, or all of the above, in transformational numbers, before they’re able to assimilate into the dominant culture, is suicidal stupidity- on acid- to the max. And a J-supremacist strategy to weaken their enemies (all of us ; ), so that they can ultimately dominate and destroy us. Duh.

    But if there’s something of consequence that happened or is happening in Bosnia, that is salient to this article, then by all means, elucidate.

    “Normal White people have no power or representation in the US.”

    The people living in pindoland, regardless of whatever grouping they choose to describe themselves as, have zero influence on israel’s colonial american regime, zero real influence in american politics. Exceptions are if they are very rich or well connected and there is still some very local venues where the people still have an influence. The latter are not many and the people’s voice is tenuous.

    “Black politicians represent Blacks. Hispanic politicians represent Hispanics. White politicians represent Israel.”

    Actually all are quislings of israel regardless of ethnic affiliation in the banana republic’s banana republic. Look at rubio or menendez, obama or waters. Especially look at the prez choices, all are rabid zionazi quislins, with trump being the worst zionazi quisling of presidents to date. If they are rep or dem, they represent israeli interests.

    https://sputniknews.com/us/202006241079712288-trump-says-some-of-us-troops-cut-in-germany-will-likely-move-to-poland/

    “”We’re going to be reducing our forces in Germany,” Trump said on Wednesday during a joint news conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda, citing Berlin’s “delinquency.”

    “Some will be coming home and some will be going to other places … Poland would be one of those other places – other places in Europe.”

    Gee what a surprise, eh. Pure likudite.

    Agree about israel’s american colony not being able to militarily challenge Russia. The american military was essentialy converted into an israeli/zionazi colonial police force. The neocon “end of history” nonsense saw to that.

    The trump regime moves have been mostly economic/psywar because they can’t do another Iraq war op. If the sods could have, rest assured they would have. But these things are not giving up.

    Trump used a near zero cost bluff

    Yea, right. For the bluff to work, it must be credible. Now, let’s recall some recent history.

    1. Bluff against NK. The US made a lot of threatening noises, sent three (!) aircraft carrier groups, none of which reached NK, which did not prevent them from losing two expensive airplanes. Net result: NK put its troops back into DMZ now.

    2. Bluff against Iran. After mafia-style assassination of Soleimani (that was a success, at least in short term and from criminal perspective), Iran shelled the US airbase. The US response: a string of many lies, issued over several days, with the number of US servicemen hurt increasing from zero to over a hundred. Other than that – nothing.

    3. Bluff against Venezuela. Lots of hot air, no action, all Iranian tankers reached their destination. Before that it was even funnier: that US-appointed pathetic Guaido, with internal support in single digits and falling, presumably organized an invasion, which flopped miserably, with two Americans now in Venezuela custody.

    Refining. Venezuela has American equipment. Until the US blocked delivery of spare parts the refining went on OK. The US also blocked the shipment of additives necessary to refine Venezuela oil. Iran helped with additives, but the only long-term solution of the refining problem requires change of equipment on Venezuela refineries to something made by sane producers in sane countries. That would take some years.

    Venezuela currency reserves. The US stole (in purely criminal sense of the term) ~$10 billion of Venezuela money plus imperial vassals the Brits stole Venezuela gold worth more than a billion. Now Venezuela keeps its assets exclusively in sane countries and is moving its oils company foreign office from Madrid to Moscow.

    To summarize, the Empire showed that its bluff is just that, bluff. It forced Venezuela to become friends with Iran (most unnatural, that), Russia, and China (even Russian alliance with China is not natural and wouldn’t have ever happened w/o imperial stupidity). The Empire forced Venezuela to keep its assets and foreign headquarters of their oil company away from imperial control. The popularity of Maduro in Venezuela went up, whereas the popularity of various guaidos went down. What’s more, Spanish-language segment of the Internet (which is more anti-American than Ayatollahs) watched the progress of Iranian tankers like a soap opera, voicing ever more rabid anti-American opinions. All huge wins, no doubt, of the stupid redhead.

    Basically, the Israeli pawn is losing every game it joins.

    No expert here on the region either, but I have spent a fair amount of time in Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia, and based on anecdotal evidence I’m not sure balkanization was an inevitable fate of Yugoslavia. Most everybody I talked to about it who recalled the Yugo days looked back on them fondly, the younger people all said their parents pined for those days. Arguably it (especially Bosnia) was a functional melting pot of Catholics, Orthodox, Muslims and even some Jews, though most all of the same race (perhaps a key factor).

    I’ve read the theory that Yugoslavia was deliberately balkanized by the West because it was a functional, even moderately successful example of a quasi-socialist country operating outside the Eastern Bloc and the central banking system. Those who know more about the region feel free to correct as needed.

There is no “white” cultural ethnic group because whites don’t identify as whites*, they identify with groups more specific. Such as national/cultural roots or political leanings.

I believe the military was not going to be ” up to the task” of suppressing the Maidan gang because they knew Januk was a thief, liar etc. and because part of the population, was legitimate in their protests, so the military would have balked – but Yanuk never made the order , anyways. He was playing everybody – his people, the EU { and vis versa } , globalists – a perfect storm for the CIA/State Dept./Mossad/Nato to take over Ukie-ville. President Putin, who later stated that Januk was a failed president was being nice to the guy when he saved Januk’s ass , when the hit on him was put out, while he headed to Donbass or Crimea. I came into the picture in 2008 when I lost my Construction management job in the States – as did everybody I know did.

    Notwithstanding your qualifier, while it’s indeed true that most European-derived Americans have not historically identified as Whites, this has been rapidly changing. Thanks to the efforts of Jewish Supremacist Organizations (JSOs), they have come to realize that in the cultural Marxist framework they have been cast as the new villain in this B movie, replacing the capitalist. Rather than oppressing the proletariat, however, straight white men are the oppressors of every other identity group in this distorted paradigm. Having been cast in this unwanted role, they have no choice but to identify as whites and will begin, like every other group, to organize in an effort to pursue their group interests, as was accurately predicted by Prof. Kevin MacDonald in his Culture of Critique.

    The use of the term cultural marxism marks the user as a neocon dupe or propagandist. Neither is something a human would aspire to, shlomo.

I pretty much kept my mouth shut and was escorted around by my fluently Russian speaking lady friend. It was cheap living, for sure: one night I slept in Kerch for $5 night, basically in a large tent about 50 feet away from the sea. For $30 in Gurzef I got a two bed room with an attached toilet and shower, and two decent meals a day, each. Seafood in restaurants or right on the beaches was good too and not very expensive.

I’m not allowed in Ukraine but Crimea citizens with family can go thru, with the right documents. No biggy, last time I drove in Ukraine , the roads were so bad , my car got beat to death – I hear they are even worse now. Kyiv stopped paying retirement funds to about 500,000 + pensioners from Donbas and Crimea – I did some #s on it and they owe these folks about 3 to 4 billion in the last 6 years – Russia has picked up all of these Pensioners and paid the retirements to these folks – F..k the Ukraine , as Cookies Nuland says.

    As far as Donbas goes, it’s my understanding that those Ukrainians that have access to receiving their pension checks still do. This can include travel over unsafe areas to reach points where the checks are given to these unfortunate individuals. Russia originally also flooded this area with propaganda that it too would provide higher pension checks to these people, but it never has and this was just a bunch of BS.

    Part of the appeal of Crimeans wanting to be a part of Russia

    The Jews ruling Ukraine cut off the electricity, transport, water and many other things because the Crimeans chose to remain Russians – they always were Russians.

    As for bombarding and raping civilians living in the Donabas region, that is not the way to get them to vote the “right” way. They hate the guts of those who rule Kiev and they will never be a part of that Jewish kingdom.

    My guess is that when the US loses interest, Poland will take back that part of West Ukraine that they lost. Hungary will take a smaller chunk. The Banderites will be forced to abandon their campaign of terror as they will run back home.

    In due course, Kharkov, Mariupol, Odessa, Sumy and a host of other places will beg Russia to take them back. There is no hurry. It is inevitable. The elite Jews will have to go elsewhere. Kiev and the centre will have to decide whether they want to become a nonentity or to rejoin Russia.

    Ukraine says Crimea is still Ukraine – pay up ! My girlfriend at the time got waxed from her Ukie pension – pravda. Russia did promise the guys in the Ukrainian military that they could keep their rank and join the Russian military, where they would be paid Russian wages – I saw alot of guys change uniforms because they were slavic Russians and Ukrainians. Later I read that 50% went for the offer. At the base I know of , the soldiers don’t drive old lada’s anymore they drive new ones and imports – lol AS far as Donbas goes – as soon as Poroshankster took loans from the IMF – the utilities tripled and I’m sure the pensions went south, like Greece. Now Vino – Vino has gotten better in the last 7 years and they produce a lot of sweet vino, which I don’t drink. The rieslings and chardonnays are good, as the champagne is also. The reds are getting better and southern Russia is producing some real good ones, but Crimea is still struggling – one year good – next year – not. 2017 was good at Inkerman – kabernay. Maybe the people working in the ” refineries ” have moved on. Moonshine is very good and homemade by many, as is cognac even. My inlaws in Zaphozia make very good homemade vino, but I’m not allowed across the border – but they tempt me with every new batch – lol

    I read you Alfred – you are the real deal – worldly for sure. Too bad I can’t come visit Kyiv anymore – it’s a cool place. Eventually , all commenters, show their cards. Unz is a great website too.

    Your wife is from Zakarpattya? They are noted for their wines, especially their late season ice wines. Here’s a good article about some of the more successful wineries in Ukraine, minus Crimea (life goes on). When I was in Crimea, I was able to taste the super delicious “White Muscat of the Red Rock”, even took a couple bottles home.

    Drank alot of Macaandra when living in Yalta, but I’m not a sweet wine guy , however Crimea makes a semi sweet Pinot Noir that isn’t bad. My second wife was from Alsace, Fr. and their pinot was the best – and cheap. Paka

    People like you are the real problem. Fully indoctrinated with no ability or want to seek the truth. The vast majority of the world’s “free” people are the same. It is not a lack of intelligence, it is apathy and exceptionalism. Even Sergei Lavrov, a statesman of the highest order, could not bring himself to acknowledge Nuland when they were at a meeting several years ago and that is a big deal considering the class of the man. You have no idea what is happening in Ukraine so sit back in your couch, switch on your MSM news channel (doesn’t matter which one as they are just parrots) and continue to absorb the propaganda that you obviously relish. Giraldi is on point, as always.

    Obviously, it’s a desert wine, but what a great way to cap a good meal, with a few delicious sips…

  231. @GMC

    Don’t like sweet wines, either, so can’t judge that. Quality-wise Crimean champagne (more expensive varieties) is on par with French, but the flavors are very different. It is way above the bubbly produced in California or Italy (Italian prosecco is good, though, but it’s a totally different animal, does not pretend to be champagne). Crimean cognacs are excellent, even middle-range priced ones. Expensive ones can easily compete with the best French and Armenian varieties.

    You are an interesting chap, but please, stop peddling this stale meme. I am Galician, and unfortunately, there are no Nazis in my vicinity. I voted for Svoboda in both the 2019 elections, and they are importing Negroes all the same. And not a single political force is campaigning for the removal of female inheritance rights or the ban on Jesus-worship. Nope, no NatSocs or at least White Juche supporters.

    Victoria Nuland is a clear and present danger that lurks in the shadows in Washington, DC.
    She is protected by the AIPAC lobby and harmful to our International relations. If the Obama administration had any back bone, this miscreant should have been fired on the spot for giving the Europeans the proverbial “finger” in loud and vulgar language, which is her signature way of communicating. She belongs on “Pier Six” and not in/near any branch of our Government.
    Speaking of foreign intervention in US politics, we should all remember the Lavon affair, the USS Liberty affair, the Jonathan Pollard spy affair and many others that have shown the Israelis to be less than loyal supporters of the USA. We do not need the “Nulands” of this world to speak for the USA. Thank you Philip Giraldi for reminding us who our friends are and who we do not need to keep close.
