Birth Of EU Army While Refugee Crisis Just Beginning

Birth of EU Army Also On Shemitah End Day – As War Tensions Rise Across Continent

That aside, two massive events happened on September 13th.  As we reported yesterday, all in one day the Eurozone ceased to exist as border checkpoints and fences went up throughout Europe.  We received some remarks from a few remarkably asleep people in Europe saying that “We didn’t notice a big difference… and besides they said it was temporary!”… Clearly these are not political historians or they would know that nothing is so permanent as a “temporary” government measure.  Richard Nixon also “temporarily suspended the convertibility of the dollar into gold” to protect against “currency speculators” in 1971.  We’re still waiting until that temporary measure is removed.
Some people just can’t seem to connect the dots until it is too late.  It is rather reminiscent of jews who stayed in Germany right up until the early 1940s who also probably thought, “It’s not a big deal, everything is fine so far.”  Interestingly, Germany began moving refugees into World War II concentration camps yesterday too.  Nothing to see here!

Aside from the fact that the Eurozone almost ceased to exist yesterday there was another ground shaking event!

The European Union, for the first time in its existence, moved to create an EU army!
Was an EU army born on Shemitah end-day? Call it another Shemitah trend – the ongoing militarization and rising tensions involving the West, China and Russia. Every part of the globe is to increasingly be placed on a kind of war footing.
As the EU makes plans to support an expanded, standing military force, the US and NATO are elevating tensions with Russia over Ukraine. And how does this all tie into Shemitah? As we have seen in past Shemitah end-days, economic dysfunction is often matched by civil chaos and even war.
This is why we were certain that winds of war would blow around Shemitah and the Shemitah end-day and indeed they have. The main effort here is to inject chaos into the body-politic and to make people so miserable and insecure that they will welcome a “new order.”
In other words, the rising tide of militarization is no accident. Will it end in a true world war? A few years ago, I’d have said “no.” But  I am not so sure anymore. I believe certain sociopathic interests  WANT a new world war. The trick is simply how to get there.
One way is by lying. The West and NATO have mastered the art of surreptitious provocation. If the CIA is not creating “terrorists” out of sheepherders, then NATO and the Pentagon are conspiring on how to foment international tensions without leaving traces.

We actually wrote about this yesterday, in our ground-breaking Shemitah end-day article. You can see it HERE.
Economic ruin and military tensions are increasingly prevalent. Just this Sunday, Angela Merkel – Germany’s very own Dragon Lady – demanded that British Prime Minister David Cameron reduce his opposition to an EU army. The quid pro quo here is reportedly that Cameron will gain Merkel’s support to renegotiate the terms of Britain’s EU membership.
It’s Merkel’s turn apparently to play ”pro-military.” The idea is that the EU will get its army formally (it already has fighting troops available) and Cameron will receive cooperation to drive a “better” EU bargain that he hopes will soothe a largely anti-EU electorate.
Ukraine is the big victory so far. The Anglosphere generally denies confronting Russia over Ukraine but anyone following the situation with any level of honesty can surely see that it was the West that provoked Russia and not the other way round.
The West provoked Russia on Georgia as well. Russia’s Putin snuffed that provocation but Ukraine is a bigger and more difficult problem. There are those in NATO and the Pentagon that doubtless see Ukraine as another Poland – a country that can create ever-escalating military tensions.

Russia for various reasons has been increasingly rising to the bait. On Monday, Russia began a vast new set of military exercises using 95,000 soldiers in the army, navy and air force. The exercises included military from forces allied with Russia and were “the most large-scale drill of 2015,” according to the Russian defence ministry.

The ministry was quoted as saying that the aim of the exercises was to “manage coalition groups of troops in containing an international armed conflict.” An international armed conflict sounds a good deal like what Russia is facing with Ukraine. Kazakh troops are involved and a military delegation from Nicaragua will monitor the drills.

Meanwhile, we get articles with headlines like this: “US and Russian Forces in Syria Aren’t Talking to Each Other.” The idea seems to be which mainstream media outlet can write the most provocative headline. In this case, DefenseOne.com, which goes on to report as follows:

This is becoming the weirdest war of all time.  Both the US and Russia state that they are “fighting ISIS”… except there is just one thing.  The US isn’t actually fighting ISIS, they’ve admitted to arming it and supplying it to destabilize Syria.  Putin called the US’ bluff by also “fighting ISIS”… which actually means the US and Russia are currently at war.
Where else is military activity heating up? InfoWars reports, “Europe Approves Military Action Against Refugee Smugglers As Germany Warns 1 Million Coming.”

The razor fences, closed borders and detention of refugees have been met with a chorus of mutual recrimination among Europe’s leaders. Today, the continent is more divided than ever by the crisis, unable to agree on quotas, and unwilling to allow free movement between its member states.

A day after refugee relocation plans were stalled by EU interior ministers, and with many countries following Germany in closing their borders, the EU’s top diplomat warned that Europe’s credibility was on the line. Its foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said the recent clumsy handling of the surge in refugees would hurt the EU’s foreign policy effectiveness.

“Our lack of internal unity has an impact on our external actions and credibility,” she said. Even a call from the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, for a crisis meeting on the situation remains under review until Thursday.

Speaking at a European Parliament debate, Ms Mogherini said governments were adopting local, short-term measures that ignored the bigger picture. “There is no illusion that this can be stopped with a fence or with a wall,” she said, referring to Hungary’s border fence with Serbia.

Ms Merkel appeared gloomy about the prospects for a solution. Austria has joined Hungary in introducing border controls, two days after Germany did the same. The Hungarian government is now also considering extending its fence along the Romanian border. The response from Bucharest was swift. The fence was “not in line with the European spirit”, said the Romanian foreign ministry. Serbian officials, meanwhile, reacted with equal dismay. Aleksandar Vulin, Serbia’s minister in charge of tackling the crisis, told Reuters: “They will have to open the border.”

Amnesty International said Hungary, under the leadership of its Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, was “showing the ugly face of Europe’s shambolic response to the growing refugee crisis”. Gauri van Gulik, Amnesty’s deputy director for Europe, said the fence was an insult to people already traumatised by war and brutality. “While the EU seems paralysed, unable to find solutions, Hungary marches onwards in the wrong direction,” she said.

That may prove too late. In the stretch of water between Turkey and Greece, another 22 people are said to have drowned when their boat sank. Ms Merkel said it was urgent that Italy and Greece set up processing “hotspots” that are intended to separate economic migrants from refugees. “Otherwise there can’t be a fair distribution of migrants,” she said. There are plans to redistribute 40,000 refugees from Italy and Greece to other EU countries.

Ms Merkel’s government has already upped its forecast for the number of refugees Germany will receive this year from 800,000 to one million – the largest number of any EU state. The EU’s border agency says more than 500,000 migrants have arrived at the EU’s borders this year, compared with 280,000 in 2014. The vast majority have come across the Mediterranean.

Monday night’s failure of EU interior ministers to agree on anything more than a vague commitment to resolving the crisis has provoked fury in Berlin with Eastern European EU members singled out for their reluctance to share the burden.

Sigmar Gabriel, Germany’s Vice Chancellor and the leader of Ms Merkel’s Social Democrat coalition partners, warned: “Europe has disgraced itself once again. The whole of Europe is at risk, Germany cannot be expected to solve the refugee problems of half the world.” 

Mr Gabriel’s remarks were echoed by several MPs. Thomas de Maizière, Ms Merkel’s Interior Minister, said it was time to consider imposing financial sanctions on EU states which refused to share the refugee burden. “Those countries that are refusing – the refugees simply pass them by,” he said. “We need to talk about ways of exerting pressure. These are often countries that receive a lot of structural funds from the EU.”

The British Labour MEP Claude Moraes, who chairs the European Parliament’s Civil Liberties Committee, agreed that the EU’s credibility was at stake. “It is shameful that some of the richest countries in the world cannot stand together and help those fleeing war and persecution in Syria,” he said.
