The big barrier called Putin

... and the suspension of the global economic oligarchy's plans for Russia

by system failure

Even when in 1989, the Berlin wall was falling, there were only few who could believe that the global economic oligarchy would dissolve the Soviet Union or Yugoslavia, bringing a bloodbath at the heart of Europe.

After the invasion of the neoliberal IMF-type doctrine in Russia and the destruction of the economy, what was expected to come, was that Russia could be transformed into a huge feud for the local oligarchs, who with the help of the Western capital, could literally steal the basic resources and structures of the country which the Soviet state had bequeathed.

The local oligarchs, with Boris Berezovsky in charge, brought their man in power, as they thought, to do the job. The oligarchs' media managed to boost Putin's publicity, beating Yevgeny Primakov, who was quite dangerous for their plans at that time. Even today, it is not quite certain who was responsible for the bombings in Russian cities in September 1999, leaving hundreds of dead and wounded, but this fact opened the road for the Russian invasion in Chechnya and boosted the publicity of the then prime minister Putin, who soon became the president of Russia.

Putin however, had other plans and made clear from the first moment that he was not disposed to serve oligarchs who were forced in self-exile, as they realized that the game in Russia was lost. After that, the new president of Russia managed to "hypnotize" the West, by playing the game with its own terms, empowering, at the same time, the Russian influence. By enhancing the pipeline network in Europe, he managed to secure its energy dependence from Russia and boost the geopolitical power of his country.

While the EU and US were occupied with the war against terrorism as well as with the dead-end wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas of the planet, Putin had all the time to build his own mechanism against Western propaganda. Being himself a man who had come to power with the help of media, he built his own media network which includes, for example, the TV network Russia Today, according to the Western standards, and "invaded" in millions of homes in the Western countries using the English language, promoting however the Russian positions as counterweight to the Western propaganda monopoly.

The West suddenly discovered that the new cold war was about to come and that the Russian bear has waken for good and should be dealt. The facts in Ukraine have shown that the Western block is in panic and worries that Russia could extend again its sphere of influence to the countries of the former Eastern block. In a rather clumsy move, the EU and US rushed to support neo-nazis and nationalists in Ukraine, and put them in the game for good by bringing them in power.

The designers of this plan have failed to predict the reactions of Russian people in Crimea and East Ukraine since they managed to revive the national collective memory of the fights against the nazi invaders during WWII and unite the Russian population, which is the majority in these regions, against Svoboda and Right Sector neo-nazis.

The Boko Haram case in Nigeria and the US-UK decision to send forces to liberate the female students, is an attempt by the West to persuade for its commitment to humanitarian values, despite its support to neo-nazis in Ukraine and tolerance of their crimes there. It is not accidental that the Western media excessively projected Obama's initiatives for this matter, while at the same time it is a common secret that hundreds of women in Africa are being raped, tortured and killed every day, not to mention genocides, like the one in Rwanda, for which the West has silenced and did nothing to prevent them.

Additionally, a possible rise of the eurosceptics in euro elections, will probably give the chance to Russia to extend its influence in countries that exclusively belong to the Western sphere of influence. The visit of the leader of the main opposition Leftist party SYRIZA, Alexis Tsipras, to Moscow, shows that Putin considers that current government in Greece has no chance to stay in power and that a potential Left government in Greece against Merkel's neoliberal Europe, could better serve Russia's plans to boost its geopolitical power in Eastern Mediterranean.

What we see in Ukraine is probably another failure of various think tanks, mostly from Washington, which they are funded, of course, by the international capital. It seems that, apart from the fact that they have underestimated Putin's abilities, they have also wrongly estimated that Russia had passed permanently in the neoliberal phase and would be ready to become an easy victim to promote their plans. According to these plans, the ultimate goal would be probably to dissolve the vast Russian territory in future and bring in power Western-friendly puppet regimes, in order not only to conquer the valuable resources, but also to impose permanently the neoliberal doctrine on "unexplored" regions and populations.

What was left to do, for the moment, is to challenge Putin in order to drag Russia in an endless attrition war in East Ukraine and this explains to a degree Putin's hesitation to act like he did in Crimea. Against Russian army, of course, the West will not risk to put an organized military force, but only teams of mercenaries of private armies, as already did. It is certain, however, that, despite that the global economic oligarchy has lost valuable time because of its wrong moves, it will not give up its plans for Russia easily ...

    Good luck to Putin and Russia. Many in US would like to see them win, beat the oligarchy. All I dare say for now.

  2. My daily friends here in rural Indiana, mostly have a TV taught worldview. They were indifferent to Russia and some were even hostile towards all things Russian.
    The Russian policy on gay propaganda at the time of 'peak queers' in The US, changed my friends from indifferent or hostile to friendly and supportive of Russia and the leadership there. Well done, Russkies.

    1. If Putin is as evil as Western pundit like to "project," then the smartest, most evil move he ever made was to commit himself 100% to "international law and common decency in politics." It has earned him the respect and admiration of millions in the West.

Διπλό στρατηγικό χτύπημα Τσίπρα κατά του καταρρέοντος Μητσοτακικού καθεστώτος

US imperialists sacrifice their European branch on the altar of their proxy war against Russia in Ukraine

globinfo freexchange   To arm the nazis and destroy Ukraine by dragging the country into a war with Russia wasn't enough for the ruthless US imperialists. They had to throw into the arena the entire Europe.    Yet, apart from a few - highly uncertain - successes so far, (coming from one of its most dirty proxy wars), the declining US empire discovers that it has to pay a huge price, just only to challenge the rise of its global rivals. It appears that, so far, the US imperialists are close to fulfill two of their key goals.    First, to lure Sweden and Finland into the NATO trap. A move that could be proved disastrous for two of the most prosperous and advanced European countries, whose achievements materialized (to a high degree) due to decades of neutrality.   Second, to force Russia into a long attrition war with Ukraine. Since already 2014, we wrote that the US imperialists wanted to challenge Putin in order to drag Russia in an endless attrition war in East Ukraine and this

Do it like the Fed: ECB raises key interest rates, creates money circulation loop for big banks and corporations

globinfo freexchange   Inside the storm of inflation, the European Central Bank suddenly thought that it would be a good idea to raise key interest rates for the first time in 11 years.  According to Deutsche Welle (DW) [emphasis added]:                       The ECB raised its negative benchmark deposit rate by 50 basis points from minus 0.5% to 0%, lifting the bank's deposit facility out of negative territory for the first time in eight years. The announcement came as a surprise as the bank had initially hinted that it would hike the rate by 25 basis points only .    It's remarkable that DW's analyst, Kristie Pladson, stated that " ... this is a historic decision they've taken now - first hike in eleven years, so, on that level, it's a little bit unclear exactly what effect it's going to have ... "   However, one thing ECB's move will surely affect, is money access for most of the Europeans. As Pladson says:                      ... what we do

Francis Fukuyama is right: Socialism is the only alternative to liberalism

In Liberalism and Its Discontents, Francis Fukuyama diagnoses the political and psychological malaise caused by capitalism. His analysis makes one thing clear: liberalism is incapable of addressing the social, economic, and ecological crises it faces.    by Samuel McIlhagga  Part 1 In a CNN interview, after another round of the US government’s sanctions on Russia, the following exchange took place between the show’s host and President Joe Biden’s economic adviser Brian Deese:               CNN: What do you say to those families that say, “Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months if not years, this is just not sustainable”?         Deese: Well, what you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes. . . . This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm. The events of the past two years, from the start of the global pandemic to the war in Ukraine, and now the global food shortage, are clear signs that liberalism, as a

Mexico’s President gives Joe Biden a big history lesson

Latin American nations are putting themselves on the front line for the sovereignty of certain countries, and are backing progressive processes in others   by Rodrigo Guillot   Part 1 Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) visited the United States on July 12 and offered five proposals to US President Joe Biden. These proposals are based on AMLO’s in-depth knowledge of Mexican history and his reading of the economic crisis in the United States, which seems to be losing its edge as a global leader. The first of the proposals that AMLO made was about Mexico allowing US consumers to fill gasoline tanks on the Mexican side of the border. By doing so, it is permitting the United States to ease its inflation crisis. AMLO offered to double the supply of gasoline in Mexico in his show of support to further ease the crisis. Second, AMLO said that Mexico would provide for more than 600 miles of gas pipelines along the US–Mexico border to help transport natural gas from Texas to Ar

The British establishment chose Boris Johnson as its weapon to defeat the Left

Boris Johnson’s disastrous time in office has spluttered to an ignominious conclusion. Many of those now deploring his record sided with Johnson when it really mattered because they wanted to block a left-wing government that could transform British society.   by Daniel Finn   Part 3 - Change UK Can Believe In Austin and Woodcock weren’t the only Labour MPs to break ranks under Corbyn. In February 2019, seven MPs resigned from the party and set up the Independent Group, which later became Change UK. There was a lot of talk in the commentariat about their potential to break the mold of British politics. Yet in the 2019 election, Change UK — now calling itself the Independent Group for Change — took just over ten thousand votes, marginally outpolling the Monster Raving Loony Party. All of the Labour defectors lost their seats — including those who defected a second time to the Liberal Democrats — apart from the ones who decided not to stand. They’ve since gone on to higher things: Chris

US debt held by the Federal Reserve surpassed 25% of GDP in 2021!

globinfo freexchange According to the economic database of St. Louis Federal Reserve (FRED), the US debt held by the Federal Reserve surpassed the unthinkable percentage of 25% of GDP (25.48%) for the first time in the third quarter of 2021! We observe that from the beginning of the related recorded data in 1970, the US debt held by the Federal Reserve remains almost flat and at much lower levels (~ 3.5%-5.5% of GDP). And this is the case even during the recession right after the 1973 oil crisis depicted by the shaded area in the graph.   Then, during the big financial meltdown of 2007-2008, we observe a shallow dive of the debt. After that period, we can see clearly that the US debt held by the Federal Reverse breaks one record after another, reaching unprecedented levels.   For the first time, the debt surpasses 10% of GDP in the second quarter of 2011 (10.41%), and in the first quarter of 2014 surpasses 15% of GDP (15.25%). Then, we have a dive in the third quarter of 2019 at 11.33

Ukraine: Ukrainian fighting tactics endanger civilians

Military bases set up in residential areas including schools and hospitals   Attacks launched from populated civilian areas       Such violations in no way justify Russia’s indiscriminate attacks, which have killed and injured countless civilians    Part 1   Ukrainian forces have put civilians in harm’s way by establishing bases and operating weapons systems in populated residential areas, including in schools and hospitals, as they repelled the Russian invasion that began in February, Amnesty International said today. Such tactics violate international humanitarian law and endanger civilians, as they turn civilian objects into military targets. The ensuing Russian strikes in populated areas have killed civilians and destroyed civilian infrastructure. “ We have documented a pattern of Ukrainian forces putting civilians at risk and violating the laws of war when they operate in populated areas, ” said Agnès Callamard, Amnesty International’s Secretary General. “ Being in a defensive pos
