The Needed Victory over the New Fascism

The world witnessed two major events on May 9: the traditional parade in Moscow, on the anniversary of the victory over Nazism in WWII, and the simultaneous Europe Day in Strasbourg. Two events, two world views: the geopolitical conception of “blocs” armed against each other vs. international law based on sovereign nations. The irony is that whereas weapons were exhibited on the Red Square, the flames of conflict were fanned in Strasbourg, if we accept, as correctly stated by competent military leaders, that wars begin with financial, political and economic weapons.

Such are the actions of both EU rotating chairman Emmanuel Macron and EU Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, who called for changing the voting system on EU foreign policy, to better push the Global Nato/Strategic Compass agenda.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, for his part, used the occasion to explain why the Russian Army was forced to intervene in Ukraine to counter what was considered an “absolutely unacceptable threat”. Since there was little coverage of his speech (and much speculation about what he did not say), it is worth quoting the beginning:

“We saw the military infrastructure being built up [in Ukraine], hundreds of foreign advisers starting work, and regular supplies of cutting-edge weaponry being delivered from NATO countries. The threat grew every day. Russia launched a pre-emptive strike at the aggression. It was a forced, timely and the only correct decision. A decision by a sovereign, strong and independent country.”

Since then, as we know, the conflict has escalated. NATO countries have promised seemingly unlimited amounts of money to Kiev, as well as delivering all kinds of military equipment, and providing training, special forces, and the intelligence needed to to attack Russian targets. With that, despite their protests, the United States, Great Britain and the European Union have made themselves “co-belligerents”, as we reported last week. Officials of all those parties have made abundantly clear that the goal is not to achieve a rapid peace in Ukraine, but regime change in Moscow and the destruction of the Russian economy.

Beyond Europe, the Anglo-American/NATO imperial policy is a threat to any part of the world that refuses to play the game, as touted so unabashedly by British government (cf. below and SAS 17, 18/22). The ultimate target is China, which is creating a new paradigm in international relations through its Belt and Road Initiative. Beijing is well aware of the danger, and has just released a fact sheet on Washington’s National Endowment for Democracy, informally dubbed the “second CIA” for its covert and not so covert operations in promoting unrest and conflicts around the world.

In addition to military confrontation and regime change operations, many countries are the victims of economic destruction, in the form of soaring food and energy prices, unfair trade and currency relations as well as the withholding of development financing on the basis of so-called “green” criteria.

However, on the brighter side, more and more of the world’s nations and people are now saying “how dare you!” to the demands that they forego real development and limit themselves to low-energy-density “renewable” technologies.
