Siegfried Sassoon – Poem: ‘On passing the new Menin Gate’. – YouTube: The above picture is the point in France where the Allies stopped the German push to Paris in 1915. This battle lasted for nearly half a year and killed a million soldiers. It is a flat field they turned into the moon, cratering everything in sight. The butchery of WWI was the end result of globalization and free trade (that is, one way free trade with the Europeans and Americans forcing open closed markets like China and Japan!) which mirrors today with one way free trade and globalization oppressing the workers severely while bankrupting empires that are so used to looting the world, they loot their home base which is insane and stupid but they can’t help themselves. The US/Russia/China battle for dominance pits an increasingly bankrupt US against two of the greater sovereign wealth nations on earth. We will lose this confrontation and go totally bankrupt.
In a few months it will be exactly 100 years since the ruinous, stupid, dangerous WWI began. We are in nearly the exact same position today except a few switches. Germany,which history says must move to the East to survive, is being shoved into another major war by ‘allies’ due to economic ties. The US is playing the role of Austria, shoving Germany into confrontations with major empires. Because the US is playing the role of Austria this time around, few historians can see the obvious. Here is an example: Parallels to 1914? What History Teaches Us About the Ukraine Crisis by Clark:
The spectre of that war is useful as a reminder of how terrible the costs can be when politics fails, conversation stops and compromise becomes impossible. But in fact the alignments implicated in the Ukrainian emergency bear little relation to the geopolitical constellations of 1914. At that time, two central powers faced a trio of world empires on Europe’s eastern and western peripheries. Today, a broad coalition of Western and Central European states is united in protesting Russia’s interventions in Ukraine. And the restless, ambitious German Kaiserreich of 1914 scarcely resembles the European Union, a multi-state peace framework that finds it difficult to project power or to formulate external policy.
The Crimean War of 1853-1856 might offer a better fit. Here, at least, we can speak of a coalition of “Western” states united in opposition to Russian imperial ventures. This war, which ultimately consumed well over half a million lives,
Mr. Clark is delusional. The ‘united…countries’ behind the US push to isolate and decapitate Russia are not enthusiastic. They are actually the opposite. They are being relentlessly shoved into WWIII by the elites who take great care to not listen to anyone else. The Bilderberg gang has this long range plan to control world energy resources that has relentlessly used NATO and in particular, the US public purse and people to attack one energy producer after another in order to raise the profit level of energy.
Examples are obvious! The price of natural gas has fallen in the US recently so of course, shipping it overseas is top priority for this is profitable by both starving the US market and the cost of shipping makes it expensive for others. But Russia’s energy sales are much cheaper to deliver so they have a greater profit with less effort so now the elites want Europe to buy US energy products which will beggar the European workers and middle classes.
Then there is the global warming scam: they depend on people being very scared, thus the hysterical language being used while millions and millions and many millions in the northern hemisphere freeze to death, to get us to tax energy products. These taxes, in turn, will pay for our future energy wars as our elites strive to control all the CO2 producing energy systems.
Syria sells energy. The other force at work here is Zionism which joins at the hip the banker/elite push to destroy any nation that is independent of them. Syria’s ruler has slipped the noose thanks to Russia and now is regaining control of his ravaged country: Syria claims to have captured rebel stronghold on Lebanese border. The naked hatred of anyone who isn’t part of the Bilderberg gang cripples the attempts by these gangsters to control the world because they resort most of the time to naked force.
Russia and China are in full alert about this and both have had conversations in private about how to deal with the EU tagging along with the US while the elites attack everyone on their long, long list. The US made a HUGE error in unleashing the Japanese right wing fascists too early. By backing Japanese territorial seizures, this wrecked the US attempt at making all of Asia scared of China. They are now scared or rather, extremely angry at Japan and the US!
All the stupid talk about crushing Russia economically is backfiring badly: US stock markets tumble amid Ukraine uncertainty during week. Our currency is in trouble, too. So is our bond market as our future victims begin dumping US debt. This is going to bite us in the ass, big time. The days when the US could push Russia or China around have ended long ago. Both entities own us, not the reverse. All we can do is go to war with them which, alas, our elites seem bent on doing.
Our allies in Europe have no real military anymore: How Afghanistan Has Changed the Bundeswehr German Military – SPIEGEL ONLINE
The German military entered Afghanistan over a decade ago as a peacekeeping force tasked with aiding in the reconstruction and development of infrastructure and civil society. Today, it leaves the country as a combat force that engaged in deadly warfare…Yet the German public has become even more opposed to military engagement overseas than it was 10 years ago, calling into question what sort of role the Bundeswehr will play in supporting NATO and the United Nations in future international conflicts…
The Bundeswehr has now begun to slowly withdraw troops from the country ahead of a December 2014 deadline, officially handing over command of the Kunduz base, in northern Afghanistan, to Afghan security forces earlier this month. The remaining 900 German troops at Kunduz are expected to withdraw by the end of October, bringing the total number of German troops in the country to around 3,100.
Germany is running away from Afghanistan. The war there is extremely unpopular at home as it is here, too. There is zero support for a war anywhere in the US, UK or Germany if one consults anyone aside from the 15% of the elites and their minions who feed off of these wars. The US public is so sick of these wars, they don’t even have any enthusiasm about killing more Afghanis via assassin drones. A true low spot indeed.
Congress just tried cutting pensions and pay of our soldiers to pay for Israel’s armaments. So, Congress restored all of this and drove us deeper into debt to pay for both again. This can’t go on forever while running trade deficits.
No nation in Europe is ramping up military spending for various adventures far and wide even as the elites back US aggression: Defence cuts mean Britain is no longer full military ally of America …British forces’ century of unbroken warfare set to end with the collapse in spending on the military… while France cannot afford military operation in Syria but France steps up military intervention into Central African Republic only because it is very small. And the French want Germany to pay for this! So, Merkel: No EU money for French military action. HAHAHA.
The French still have delusions about being a military power which is why they parade about, waving flags, with the US like here: US, France end military drills in Persian Gulf. This is because the US has to retreat and go confront Russia in the Black Sea area where we are sitting ducks.
Here is a BBC production about WWI:
Paris declares all public transport in the city will be free for three days to tackle smog problem. The US news talks about China smog but not US or EU smog. Both have smog. The US smog is mainly in California which is the only global warming spot in the entire North American continent. France is heavily taxing the rich to pay for its military adventures with the US and the elites there are pissed off because they see fellow elites in the US refusing to pay any taxes and putting all these military games on the I.O.U. ledger and then selling this to Russia and China.
Fighting WWIII while bankrupt is only possible if the US nukes everyone. And the downside to this is, we will be nuked, too. Which is why I am furious that the antiwar movement is dead, dead, dead due to Zionism, a belief that Democrats aren’t part of the Bilderberg/Skull & Bones/AIPAC troika and so dissent is muted and the fact that the left is totally decimated and tied in knots due to the global warming scam. They truly believe the insane story that we are going to roast to death and the #1 issue is CO2 problems.
Not the theft of fossil fuels by the elites!!! How insane. How tragic. How easily manipulated people are. By the way, it is snowing here on my mountain again and going to zero…again!
