Does Russia (And Humanity) Have A Future?
Europe is complicit in its own demise

The Russian government has finally realized that it has no Western “partners,” and is complaining bitterly about the propagandistic lies and disinformation issued without any evidence whatsoever against the Russian government by Washington, its European vassals, and presstitute media.

Perhaps the Russian government thought that only Iraq, Libya, Syria, China, and Edward Snowden would be subjected to Washington’s lies and demonization.

It was obvious enough that Russia would be next.

The Russian government and Europe need to look beyond Washington’s propaganda, because the reality is much worst.

NATO commander General Breedlove and Senate bill 2277 clearly indicate that Washington is organizing itself and Europe for war against Russia (see my previously posted column).

Europe is reluctant to agree with Washington to put Ukraine in NATO. Europeans understand that if Washington or its stooges in Kiev cause a war with Russia Europe will be the first casualty. Washington finds its vassals’ noncompliance tiresome. Remember Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland’s “fuck the EU.” And that is just what Washington is about to do.

The US Senate’s Russian Aggression Prevention Act, about which I reported in my previous column, does even more mischief than I reported. If the bill passes, which it likely will, Washington becomes empowered to bypass NATO and to grant the status of “allied nation” to Ukraine independently of NATO membership. By so doing, Washington can send troops to Ukraine and thereby commit NATO to a war with Russia.

Notice how quickly Washington escalated the orchestrated Ukrainian “crisis” without any evidence into “Russian aggression.” Overnight we have the NATO commander and US senators taking actions against “Russian aggression” of which no one has seen any evidence.

With Iraq, Libya, and Syria, Washington learned that Washington could act on the basis of baldfaced lies. No one, not Great Britain, not France, not Germany, not Italy, not the Netherlands, not Canada, not Australia, not Mexico, not New Zealand, not Israel, nor Japan, nor S. Korea, nor Taiwan, nor (substitute your selection) stepped forward to hold Washington accountable for its blatant lies and war crimes. The UN even accepted the package of blatant and obviously transparent lies that Colin Powell delivered to the UN. Everything Powell said had already been refuted by the UN’s own weapons inspectors. Yet the UN pussies gave the go-ahead for a devastating war.

The only conclusion is that all the whores were paid off. The whores can always count on Washington paying them off. For money the whores are selling out civilization to Washington’s war, which likely will be nuclear and terminate life on earth. The whores’ money will incinerate with them.

It is hardly surprising that Washington now targets Russia. The world has given Washington carte blanche to do as it pleases. We have now had three administrations of US war criminals welcomed and honored wherever the war criminals go. The other governments in the world continue to desire invitations to the White House as indications of their worth. To be received by war criminals has become the highest honor.

Even the president of China comes to Washington to receive acceptance by the Evil Empire.

The world did not notice Washington’s war crimes against Serbia and didn’t puke when Washington then put the Serbian president, who had tried to prevent his country from being torn apart by Washington, on trial as a war criminal.

The world has made no effort to hold Washington responsible for its destruction of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now Syria and Gaza. The world has not demanded that Washington stop murdering people in Pakistan and Yemen, countries with which Washington is not at war. The world looks the other way as Washington creates the US Africa Command. The world looks the other way as Washington sends deadly weapons to Israel with which to murder women and children in the Gaza Ghetto. Washington passes Senate and House Resolutions cheering on the Israeli murder of Palestinians.

Washington is accustomed to its free pass, granted by the world, to murder and to lie, and now is using it against Russia.

Russian President Putin’s bet that by responding to Washington’s aggression in Ukraine in an unprovocative and reasonable manner would demonstrate to Europe that Russia was not the source of the problem has not payed off. European countries are captive nations. They are incapable of thinking and acting for themselves. They bend to Washington’s will. Essentially, Europe is a nonentity that follows Washington’s orders.

If the Russian government hopes to prevent war with Washington, which is likely to be the final war for life on earth, the Russian government needs to act now and end the problem in Ukraine by accepting the separatist provinces’ request to be reunited with Russia. Once S.2277 passes, Russia cannot retrieve the situation without confronting militarily the US, because Ukraine will have been declared an American ally.

Putin’s bet was reasonable and responsible, but Europe has failed him. If Putin does not use Russian power to bring an end to the problem with which Washington has presented him in Ukraine while he still can, Washington’s next step will be to unleash its hundreds of NGOs inside Russia to denounce Putin as a traitor for abandoning the Russian populations in the former Russian provinces that Soviet leaders thoughtlessly attached to Ukraine.

The problem with being a leader is that you inherit festering problems left by previous leaders. Putin has the problems bequeathed by Yeltsin. Yeltsin was a disaster for Russia. Yeltsin was Washington’s puppet. It is not certain that Russia will survive Yeltsin’s mistakes.

If Washington has its way, Russia will survive only as an American puppet state.

In a previous column I described the article in Foreign Affairs, the journal of the Washington foreign policy community, that makes a case that the US has such strategic advantage over Russia at this time that a “window of opportunity” exists for the US to remove Russia as a restraint on US hegemony with a preemptive nuclear attack.

It is almost certain that Obama is being told that President John F. Kennedy had this window of opportunity and did not use it, and that Obama must not let the opportunity pass a second time.

As Steven Starr explained in a guest column, there are no winners of nuclear war. Even if the US escapes retaliatory strikes, everyone will die regardless.

The view in Washington of the neoconservatives, who control the Obama regime, is that nuclear war is winnable. No expert opinion supports their assumption, but the neocons, not the experts, are in power.

The American people are out to lunch. They have no comprehension of their likely fate. Americans are an uninformed people distracted by their mounting personal and financial problems. If Europeans are aware, they have decided to live for the moment on Washington’s money.

What life is faced with is a drive for hegemony on the part of Washington and ignorant unconcern on the part of the rest of the world.

Americans, worked into a lather about Washington’s unfunded liabilities and the viability of their future Social Security pension, won’t be alive to collect it.

    The reign of the anti-christ won’t end until billions of people are incinerated. Obama is not done yet. Great article, he seems to be in agreement.

    Any politician who is serious about a first strike against Russia needs to be shot, sooner than later. Really. I mean, WTF?????????

    A conventional war against Russia would be slaughter of Biblical proportions, with America losing. The Russians have already demonstrated in previous World Wars the ability to absorb staggering losses. A trillion dollars later, the Taliban still rule. hahahaha

    Where I live I’m surrounded by Russians. Good solid people, smart as hell, super educated, speak English with American accents, quiet but full of fun. Couldn’t have better neighbors and the chap below us brings a bottle of vodka and tin of caviar when they show up. How great is that?

    And those asshole Neo-Cons see a window to terminate these good people? We better start cleaning house like real soon and start with Victoria Nuland. Ship her to GAZA.

    Anyone that has come of age after the end of the Cold War just doesn’t understand the threat presented to the United States by Russia. They do not understand that Russia is not some country that we can push around but a place with enough nuclear weapons to turn the entire USA into a glass parking lot and do so at the push of a button.

    Anyone that is trying to pick a fight with these guys should be immediately shot for treason.

    WTF!?!

    Maybe we could trick Russia into retaliating against Mexico. Just trying to think outside the box, here.

    It’s not just Russia. China is very aware that they will be the next candidate for “liberation” American-style (the current disagreements with the US puppet Japan over those South CHINA Sea islands are just the excuse for “legitimacy”).

    So, it’ll not be a USSA vs. Russia conflict, but a USSA vs. Russa AND China conflict, both of which are nuclear-armed, and both of which share military and technical know-how on a large scale.

    Wonder how very few American cities or key infrastructure elements (power / water / gas grids) will need to be obliterated (conventional / terrorist) before the dumb population decide enough is enough, and start their own Fifth Column movement. Then the Establishment will be fighting a war on THREE fronts.

    This will be a war that WILL be winnable by Russia alone; a Sino-Russian alliance just adds an extra level of assurance. The only “little problem” is that if a losing US decides to go Nuclear, then Russia / China WILL retaliate in kind. Any significant exchange will mean the rest of the Planet won’t need to worry too much about pension schemes – we’ll not be around to collect. . . . . .

    Here’s the conclusion I’ve come to, via many books: the Pentagon is an independent body, the definitive power in the world especially since the takedown of the cold warrior turned peacenik, JFK. Some political party’s putz (Commander in Chief) is the public head, but the real power lies down the food chain.

    The Pentagon is the world’s largest single fossil fuel user.
    Vladamir, you just don’t fuck with the Pentagon’s oil.
    The Pentagon needs a steady stream of Federal Reserve notes perceived as being worth something to fund it (large profits from the worldwide illegal drug trade don’t provide enough revenue).
    Vladamir, you don’t fuck with the Pentagon’s money with alternate currencies.

    Paul Craig Roberts is right: Russia must become another “willing” receptacle of the Pentagon’s pedophiliac love or the Pentagon will just seed as often as it pleases.

    The Russians have a hard-earned reputation as being very effective guerrilla fighters (Napoleonic Wars, and WW2 Eastern Front).

    Something to consider very carefully if you are a potential member of any “Alliance” ground offensive, and even “modern” battle tanks have a problem with the heavy Ukrainian soils, especially when they turn to mud. A “stuck” tank becomes a very easy target.

    “Pres Obama played about 5 hrs of golf at Congressional and then returned to the WH.”

    comment on Zero Hedge:

    I WOULD SUGGEST THAT HE CONCENTRATE ON THE GULF BETWEEN HIS ADMINISTRATION AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THE GULF BETWEEN FREEDOM AND SLAVERY, THE GULF BETWEEN TRUST AND DECEPTION, THE GULF BETWEEN THE CRONY RICH AND THE POVERTY OF THE AMERICAN MASSES, THE GULF BETWEEN MORALITY AND WICKEDNESS.

    THIS IS THE GULF I EXPECT MY PRESIDENT ENDEAVOR TO SPEND HIS TIME ON…

    IF NOT, THEN HE CAN SPEND HIS TIME INCARCERATED DURING THE REST OF HIS TIME ON EARTH.

    SAME APPLICATION APPLIES TO THE PREVIOUS OCCUPANTS.

    Why? Because those who own our money, media and politics say we must hate and now, fight, the Russians for precisely the fact you stated.

    They probably would have been satisfied for a while with asset-stripping Ukraine as they destroyed the White culture by the same means they do in the US, but the Tribes gambit to finish the job they started in Ukraine a hundred years ago seems to be faltering.

    Why not triple down on it before too many people wake up and realize who’s really behind the curtain?
