The public broadcaster reports that the bombshell proposal will be presented to a meeting of the Visegrad group of countries - made up of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia - by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier later today.
Germany may be a staunch supporter of NATO on the surface, however, the Germans are playing both ends against the middle. Germany previously threw its support of Putin when he put boots on the ground in Syria to fight the CIA created ISIS. Germany is on the edge of leaving NATO, all they need is a little push from Russia. The United States has responded with shipping its most modern nuclear weapons to Germany two years ago in response to this fear. At the end of the day, it will not make any difference.
If NATO were to go on the rocks in a post-BREXIT world, the U.S. has a very narrow window from which to launch an attack upon Russia to counter Russian moves in Syria, its growing threat to the Baltic states and its newly forming partnership with Germany which serves to undermine NATO. This is clearly what the previous shipment of nuclear missiles to Germany was all about, and this increases the possibility that the war will be a case of happening sooner, not later. Certainly, NATO’s provocations by holding numerous war games at various points on the Russian border is an attempt to get Russia to respond and appear to be the aggressor nation should World War III breakout.
The eventual defection of Germany, France and Italy from NATO to Russia is easy to foretell. This is a case of a picture, or in this case, an energy map, is worth a thousand words.
The mainstream media is reporting that BREXIT was about economically decoupling from the failing EU, controlling its borders and gaining control over immigration. What the mainstream media is not reporting is that the UK leadership is running from U.S. imperialism. And the unreported reason that many of the UK elite supported BREXIT was because many of the elite do not want to be blown up in a nuclear war for supporting American imperialism as per the Rothschild/Rockefeller banking interests that the American government presently serves. When the British elite produced the following declaration, it should have been easy for the world to have predicted BREXIT. First the UK leaves the EU and then it will eventually separate from NATO. If you don’t think so, look at what much of the UK elite were saying two years ago.
Ahead of the Vienna Conference on the members, mostly Britishhave expressed extreme trepidation of the possibility of coming nuclear war. The conference participants stated that “Urgent action is needed to minimize the risk of a nuclear war”. Some of the signatories include:
As if the Russian-Chinese energy deal is not bad enough, the BRICS are driving a stake into the American economy as they have set up a new development and investment bank for all of the BRICS countries. The banks will be headquartered in Shanghai, China, with the first president of the bank will be from India. The BRICS nations, of course, are a group of emerging economies and draws its name from the five member countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. BRICS is also considering starting a joint infrastructure fund with an initial capital infusion of around $100 billion to begin investing in each other’s transportation, water and sewage systems.
The Petrodollar is on its last legs as America’s hegemony over the world’s economy is ending. Simply put, on the present course, the dollar could collapse at any point in time
Prof. Clark carefully details how small cabals of anti-German senior officials in France, Britain and Russia engineered World War I, a dire conflict that was unnecessary, idiotic, and illogical. Germany and Austria-Hungary, of course, share some the blame, but to a much lesser degree than the bellicose French, Serbs, Russians and British.
We are seeing the same process at work today. The war party in Washington, backed by the military-industrial complex, the tame media, and the neocons, are agitating hard for war.
US and NATO combat forces are being sent to Russia’s western borders in Ukraine, the Baltic, and the Black Sea. NATO is arming, financing ($40 billion so far) and supplying Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. Prominent Americans are calling for the US to attack Russian forces in Syria. US warships are off Russia’s coasts in the Black Sea, Baltic, and Pacific. NATO air forces are probing Russia’s western air borders.
In an amazing break with Berlin’s normally obsequious behavior, German’s foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, just demanded that Washington and NATO stop their ‘sabre-rattling’ against Russia. He speaks for many Germans and other Europeans who are deeply alarmed by the alliance’s provocations of Russia.
In fact, many Europeans want to see the end of NATO-imposed sanctions against Russia that were ordered by the US. No one in Europe cares about Russia’s re-occupation of Crimea. The sanctions have been a big backfire, seriously hurting EU exports to Russia at a time of marked economic weakness. Nor are any Europeans ready to fight a war, or worse, even court nuclear war, for such dark-side-of-the-moon places as eastern Ukraine’s Luhansk or Mariupol.
So what happened to the vaunted British betting market that is almost invariably correct and was predicting by 80 percent a Remain victory? Or all those recent polls that were tilting Remain?
Answer: Those same elites had convinced each other they would win and therefore convinced the usual suspects—media, pollsters and, sadly, financial markets—that they were right. They were wrong. Watching them now on the BBC they still cannot comprehend what has happened. The peasants have revolted—oh no, oh no. There must be some mistake. Didn't they get the memo? The sky would fall if they left the EU.
Earth to elites: Citizens of truly democratic countries don't want unlimited immigration into their countries by people who couldn't be less interested in democracy. They also don't want to be governed by the rules and regulations of faceless bureaucrats whose not-so-hidden goals are power and riches for themselves and their friends. Simple, isn't it?
