The Ukraine War - a pretext for European "unification"?

Κυριακή, 31 Αυγούστου 2014

The US has done it for decades; inventing foreign enemies in order to "unite" its vast citizenry under the American cause and banner.

Today, EU officials were trying to portray Russia as  "Europe's enemy" and trying to sell Ukraine's problem as Europe's problem! The propaganda was headlining all major media outlets with the BBC running titles such as "EU must act on Russia aggression" and "Russia practically in a war against Europe" which adopt the classic oversimplified pre-war brainwash so often encountered in American mainstream media.

 Besides the obvious attempt to gather support for another "Crimean war" there is an attempt to instill a sense of collective European psyche where it is not individual countries that Russia is "practically at war with" but the whole of Europe.

This is the EU leadership's first real attempt at using such propaganda to drive political unification across the EU. Financial unification was already been implemented 2 years ago, using the economic "crisis" in countries like Greece and Portugal as a pretext. But the EU's drive for harsh economic reform has been met with fierce resentment and public opinion is swinging against political unification with nationalist and eurosceptic parties  on the rise across the EU.

The reality is that Russia will never cease control of the strategic Crimean peninsula as it is the only location across the Black sea that is fit to hold large naval bases. And the Black sea is critical for the supply of oil and gas to Europe. When Russia lost the Crimean war in 1854 after the fall of Sevastopol, it lost its dominance in the Black sea. The overthrow of President VictorYanucovych by pro-Western "activists" jeopardized the status of the Russia's bases in the Crimean and the intention of NATO to establish military bases in Ukraine meant that a land passage to Crimea through eastern Ukraine had to be secured.Then of course, these territories are important for economic reasons.

This means that by instigating the violent change of Ukrainian government to advance a pro-EU/IMF agenda, the EU declared war on Russia, not the other way around!

The EU rhetoric comes as a response to the events that are unfolding on the theater of war. Of course, the EU leaders knew that Russia wouldn't give up the Black sea, meaning that the failure of the Ukrainian military campaign was an absolute certainty. In reality, their plan has always been to split Ukraine into two states, but creating a new bully in the neighborhood is critical for fostering a "European identity".

Because the idea of the EU and NATO taking direct military action against Russia is ludicrous.Putting the risk for a nuclear holocaust aside, the Russians are determined to fight and die for East Ukraine whereas neither the Ukrainian soldiers and definitively nor the Europeans are. If we are, as we are told, to respect the EU "principles" that were used to establish the Kosovan state through NATO bombardment and under the guise of the Albanian majority's right to self determination, then we should grant the same right to the ethnic-Russians who dominate the east provinces of Ukraine. But thus far the EU has shown no sensibility towards these civilians who have come under heavy fire by the EU's Ukrainian "allies."

I may be dumb but I cannot see why Ukraine's war is "my war"?



ΝΑΤΟ: an alliance without a cause

Πέμπτη, 28 Αυγούστου 2014

NATO was created as a military alliance to defend against the expansion of communism driven by the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Following the global collapse of Communism and the Soviet Union, NATO infiltrated the Eastern bloc and had to reinvent itself as a global force promoting security and stability against ideological and political extremism.

Yesterday the secretary general of the Alliance announced plans to establish permanent NATO bases at the borders with Russia in order to avert Russian expansionism, while modernizing the military of Ukraine - a country that is not a NATO member! 

These plans raise the question of whether NATO has completely lost is purpose.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union was actively promoting the global spread of its extreme political system and precipitating military conflicts around the globe, in Greece, Korea, Vietnam, South America, Afghanistan and the Middle East.

Today the situation is completely reversed.

Russia is governed by a democratically elected government and runs a social capitalist economic system. Naturally is offers military support to defend ethic Russians who ended up in the wrong side of the border after the collapse of the Soviet Union in Ukraine and Georgia.  But otherwise, all Russia wants is to do business. Export its energy at a fair price and buy goods from Europe and China.  And many other countries want to do business with Russia, the richest country in the world when it comes to natural resources.

Instead, the US is using NATO to promote certain business interests, by overthrowing the secular governments in the Arab world, training, arming and organizing Islamic fundamentalists to wreck havoc in Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Lybia into chaos. Through these actions NATO has demolished its role of fighting against terrorism as the US is the major sponsor of terrorist groups such as ISIS.

Today the US, followed by the EU, is main threat to global peace and economic prosperity. American officials will have a hard time bullying NATO allies into accepting that Russia is a threat worth jeopardizing their economic interests and spending valuable military resources and human personnel to antagonize Russia, in order to promote American business ventures in Eastern Europe.

This could finally spell the collapse of NATO. Amen!



Προσβάλει το πολίτευμα ο νόμος που ποινικοποιεί την προσβολή του πολιτεύματος

Τετάρτη, 27 Αυγούστου 2014

Η ελευθερία του λόγου αποτελεί έναν από τους βασικούς πυλώνες του Δημοκρατικού πολιτεύματος.

Στο πλαίσιο του "εξευρωπαϊσμού"(!) των ποινών και για τα εγκλήματα της διαφθοράς, πρόβλεψη νέων θεσμών, η "επιστημονική επιτροπή του υπουργείου Δικαιοσύνης" υπό τον επίτιμο αντεισαγγελέα του Αρείου Πάγου, κ. Βασίλη Μαρκή προτείνει σχέδιο του νέου Ποινικού Κώδικα το οποίο θα επιβάλει:

 "Ποινές ισοβίων για προσβολή του πολιτεύματος και δέκα χρόνια για όποιον προκαλεί με εικόνες ή μέσω Διαδικτύου τη διάπραξη της πράξης."

 Η άποψη ότι η σημερα μας κυβερνά μια Χούντα θα διώκεται, μαζί με όποιον άλλον επικρίνει ή "απειλεί" το παρόν πολιτικό κατεστημένο και του "πολίτευματος" που επιβάλει και αντιπροσωπεύει.

 Στο στόχαστρο της επιστημονικής, στο όνομα και μόνο, ομάδος, βρίσκεται η Χρυσή Αυγή και όχι κάποιοι συστημικοί δήθεν Αριστεροί που καίνε ελληνικές σημαίες και δημόσια κτήρια και δεν αναγνωρίζουν το Σύνταγμα, καθότι αυτοί δεν αποτελουν πραγματική απειλή για το πολιτικό κατεστημένο.

Μόνο που με την ποινοκοποίηση του λόγου και την θέσπιση αδικημάτων γνώμης, ο προτασσόμενος νόμος προσβάλει και καταργεί το ίδιο το Δημοκρατικό πολίτευμα που υποτίθεται ότι επιχειρεί να προσταστεύσει.

Ποια άλλη ευρωπαική χώρα έχει θεσπίσει παρόμοιο νόμο που να επιβάλει μάλιστα και ποινή ισόβιας κάθειρξης;!
