New Chairman of NATO Military Committee Believes that Russia Could Occupy the Baltic States and Kiev in Two Days

00 Give Peace a Chance. atomic fireball. 21.09.13

This was for an earlier war, but it still resonates. Pope Francisco and HH are adamant and united… GIVE PEACE A CHANCE! The sectarian bozos cheer on nuclear war, for that would bring on the “Rapture” (or so their loopy theology states).  That’s what’s at stake, kids…

______________________________

On Wednesday, 27 May, Radio Prague reported that the new Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, Czech General Petr Pavel (who takes over on 1 June) stated at the Our Security conference held in Prague that the Russian forces can occupy the Baltic States and capture Kiev in two days. General Pavel emphasised that if Russian forces intervened in the Baltic States and the Ukraine, NATO forces “couldn’t respond adequately” to such a situation. Pavel accentuated that, in its current state, NATO isn’t able to respond to changing situations quickly, “The measures that Europe takes in response to the threat posed by Russia and ISIS are strikingly ineffective”. Pavel believes that the weak point is the NATO decision-making process. NATO has 28 countries as members, and they all have to agree. Meanwhile, Russia can make decisions in a matter of hours. One should note that the high-ranking US Army figures previously stated that in the case of a direct aggression to a NATO country, the Pentagon wouldn’t wait for a common solution from the entire bloc, it’d immediately take measures to repel the aggression.

The USA is blowing smoke out of its ass. You don’t look at raw numbers of troops… you look at what units are there, what units can reinforce them, and what total resources are available in CONUS for deployment. Now, the USA has ONLY TWO MANEUOVRE BRIGADES in Europe. Let me reiterate that. The USA only has two brigade-equivalents in US Army Europe… that isn’t even a complete division! Most units available in CONUS are understrength National Guard and Army Reserve units… they’d require topping up with personnel and equipment before they could be effective… a matter of months, not weeks or days. In short, the only thing that the USA could do to threaten Russia is to use nukes. That’s all folks. There ain’t no other options. That is… thermonuclear Ragnarök or Nothing.

I, for one, hope that the decision is for “Nothing”… otherwise, bend over and kiss your ass goodbye…

Czech Defence Big Sez NATO Never Really Considered Sending Arms to Kiev Junta

00 destroyed junta tank in Uglegorsk. DNR Novorossiya. 23.02.15

______________________________

On Sunday, Czech Defence Minister Martin Stropnický said in an interview on Prima TV, “At meetings of NATO member-states’ defence ministers, issues related to arms supplies to the Ukraine were never seriously considered”. Earlier on Sunday, NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe US General Philip Breedlove said that the West should consider all possible tools to respond to the Ukrainian crisis, but sending arms to Kiev might destabilise the situation further. Breedlove added that the West should be quick to develop pragmatic approach to settling the Ukrainian crisis because inaction could also destabilise the situation. Last week, junta strongman P A Poroshenko claimed that Kiev signed contracts with eleven EU countries on supplying weaponry, including lethal arms. Last week, German Economic News reported that EU isn’t of one mind on whether to send weapons to the Ukraine. According to the newspaper, at least eight EU nations are strongly opposed to providing arms to the Ukraine… Spain, Germany, Greece, Cyprus, Hungary, Italy, France, and Slovakia. Last month, Germany and France ruled out giving the Kiev junta weapons, fearing further escalation of the conflict in Novorossiya.

Is NATO long for this world? Do remember that Merkel speaks fluent Russian and VVP speaks fluent German. They’re two of the few world leaders that can talk to one another without translators… that’s no small beer. I believe that VVP is trying to undermine and collapse NATO… he may do it. Do note the silence of Stratfor on this… it’d upset their rightwing subscribers, poor babies. They’re a commercial profit-making outfit pushing a product, not a real intelligence agency; never forget that… it distorts their results.

Victoria Nuland Talks Nonsense and Plans for War

00 Politics. He Listened to the Tea Party. 02.01.13

______________________________

Whilst Nuland described the Crimea and Novorossiya as being in the grip of a “Reign of Terror”, over 90 percent Crimeans support reunification with Russia. The fact Nuland is ready to disregard reality when discussing the Ukraine is dangerous and not funny. To enter the mind of Victoria Nuland, US Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs, is to enter a parallel universe. In comments to the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Nuland used the “Reign of Terror” remark. In the Crimea, “Crimean Tatars, Ukrainians who refused to surrender their passports, gays and lesbians, journalists and others” experience violation of their human rights as “the norm, not the exception”. In Novorossiya, “Russia and its separatist puppets (sic) unleashed unspeakable violence and pillage”. The blame for all this horror rests squarely with Moscow, which “manufactured a conflict fuelled by Russian tanks and heavy weapons; financed by Russian taxpayers” to which the Kremlin has sent “hundreds and hundreds of young Russians to fight and die”. Meanwhile, as the Crimea and Novorossiya groan under “illegal occupation” and “terror”, “the Ukraine is building a peaceful, democratic, independent nation across 93 percent of its territory”. Anyone who believes this fantasy must however explain certain facts. It turns out that far from feeling oppressed by “illegal occupation” and “terror”, over 90 percent of Crimeans supported reunification with Russia. This contrasts with reports of growing discontent in “the peaceful, democratic, independent Ukraine”. Meanwhile, the German government and intelligence service can find no trace of any vast Russian army in Novorossiya or on the Ukrainian border that Nuland talks about. Whilst Nuland sees things that aren’t there, she can’t see things that are.

She didn’t notice that President Yanukovich’s removal from office was unconstitutional and violent. She doesn’t see the fascist and neo-Nazi groups and militias that scar Ukrainian political life. The term “Right Sector” doesn’t pass her lips. She’s oblivious to the withdrawal of accreditation to Russian journalists, of the Ukraine banning of Russian and dissident Ukrainian media, and of the deaths of Russian journalists. She doesn’t observe how despite repeated promises the Kiev junta refuses to negotiate a constitutional settlement with the Novorossiyan people. She doesn’t seem to be aware of the junta aggression against Novorossiya, launched in July as the junta’s foreign minister signed a call for an unconditional ceasefire in Berlin. As for the shelling of Novorossiyan cities, the bombing of Donetsk and Lugansk, the fire and murder of protesters in the Odessa Dom Profsoyuzov, the economic blockade imposed by the junta on Novorossiya, the assaults on dissident politicians, and the humanitarian crisis caused by junta actions, if one takes one’s news from Nuland one would know nothing of them. It isn’t that Nuland doesn’t know these things or that she really believes the fantasies she peddles. Rather, she is, as Der Spiegel reported that the German government believes, one amongst several ideological hardliners in NATO and the USA unhappy with the Minsk peace process, who look for ways to wreck it so that the aggression against Novorossiya could restart with the junta rearmed with American weapons. In order to achieve this objective, Nuland and her co-conspirator NATO General Breedlove are ready to say whatever they consider necessary, regardless of truth. Der Spiegel said that this attitude has officials in the German Chancellery “shaking their heads” in dismay. The fact that Nuland is ready to wander so far from reality when discussing the Ukraine is dangerous and not funny. It doesn’t merely risk the West’s credibility, as the German government supposedly thinks. Rather, it’s a sign of how far Western hardliners like Nuland are ready to go to get the anti-Russian war in Europe that they want.

Many Anglo Americans (especially, in the Affluent Effluent) live in a fantasy world, but Republicans are doubly so inclined. Anyone who takes ANY credence in Fox News, Rush Limboob, or Sarah Palin is dangerously lunatic. If the Fairness Doctrine were still in place, these truth-stretchers wouldn’t be on the air. Yes, Virginia, at one time, the USA disallowed rightwing slime from spouting their shit over the airwaves. It’s time to bring that back, along with the socialistic New Deal, in all its fullness (starting with abolishing Taft-Hartley and reimposing a full and uncastrated Wagner Act). Until we do so, we live in a brutal and violent Corporatist state closer to Nazi Germany than to the New Deal USA that helped to defeat it (there’s little difference between Wal-Mart’s present business practises and those of the slave-labour-utilising IG Farben in the Third Reich). Think on that.

Americans Wet Their Pants! Russian Aircraft Used NATO Ships as Simulated Targets

00 Russian Air Force fighters. 04.05.14

_______________________________

According to TVN24.pl, citing Sputniknews.com, Russians air units used NATO ships in the Black Sea as simulated targets in their exercises. On 3 March, Su-30 and Su-24 bombers based in the Crimea made a simulated attack on the American cruiser USS Vicksburg and the Turkish frigate Turgut Reis. The purpose of the exercise was to test tactics used to “overcome air defence” of cruisers and frigates, which meant that they tested antishipping tactics. Finally, the Russian aircraft buzzed the NATO ships. Exercises of this scale against “enemy” units are very rare. In the past, most were instances of individual aircraft doing such, such as in April 2014, when an Su-24 flew very close to an American destroyer in the Black Sea. The commander of the USS Donald Cook said that it was a “provocative” act.

It looked like the Americans peed their pants in fright twice. They like handing it out, but like all bullies, they don’t like taking it. Let’s not be coy… the American naval superiority means NOTHING in the Black Sea. With that out, the intheatre American forces are inferior to the intheatre Russian forces. Therefore, any noise from the USA is nothing but the gumming of a toothless and bootless Rubber Lion. Russia holds the trumps… and Vova has the black belt, doesn’t he?
