Paris towards militarization, Europe to follow

The process already started

Another attack at the heart of Europe, another opportunity for the implementation of the new conditions. We are watching the radical transformation of the security orientation in Europe and the West. Years of wars and destruction in the Middle East caused by the military-industrial-security-financial complex, managed to bring "asymmetric wars" inside the US and the European soil.

From PressTV:

France’s defense minister has announced that more than 10,000 troops will be stationed across the country to ensure security after the recent terrorist attacks in the country’s capital city of Paris. [...] France’s such use of army to establish security in the country is unparalleled in recent history. France Prime Minister Manuel Valls estimated earlier on Monday that the number of military troops will be around 8,500.” (http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2015/01/12/392771/France-ups-security-with-10000-troops)

From BBC:

Home Secretary Theresa May, speaking after chairing a meeting of UK government emergency committee Cobra, said security had been increased at the France/UK border - notably at the Eurostar rail terminal in Paris and the Channel Tunnel entrance at Calais. UK border staff had 'intensified checks on passengers, on vehicles and goods coming from France', she said. The move was a 'precautionary' measure and was not as a result of any specific intelligence, she added. Armed patrols have also been increased at St Pancras International station, the Eurostar terminal in London, British Transport Police said. The UK terror threat level remains unchanged at 'severe', meaning a terrorist attack is 'highly likely'.” (http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-30721238)

It would be probably interesting to focus on the statements of the French PM, Manuel Valls, that "If 17 people die, this means mistakes have been made," and "There was a failing, of course… That's why we have to analyze what happened," (http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/01/10/392395/French-intelligence-has-failed-PM-says).

Interpreting his words, Valls is actually targeting the security sector, presenting the state as an insufficient mechanism to run it. The economic crisis that hit eurozone struggling to recover after all these years, is actually a very convenient situation towards the propaganda on the "necessity" of privatization of the security forces. The second target, is the promotion of further justification of increased interceptions in the name of "national security". Indeed, David Cameron already made statements on this matter:

From Guardian:

Britain’s spying agencies need more powers to read the contents of communications in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, David Cameron has said. The prime minister’s comments suggest a Conservative government would bring in new intercept legislation in 2016 to make sure there is no form of communication that cannot be requested with a warrant signed by the home secretary. [...] Speaking in Nottingham, he said the intelligence agencies need more access to both communications data - records of phonecalls and online exchanges between individuals - and the contents of communications. This is compatible with a 'modern, liberal democracy', he said.” (http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/jan/12/uk-spy-agencies-need-more-powers-says-cameron-paris-attacks?commentpage=1)

Only a few months ago, the new situation has been described by the article Globalized wars: Anyone can fight against anyone. A key paragraph from the article that "ISIS fighters' threats concerning potential attacks in Western countries serve perfectly the plan, which is to transfer the wars from borders to urban centers. Indeed, since a citizen of any Western country, attached to the ISIS or other extremist groups, is determined to die in a bloodbath at the heart of this country, the protection of borders has no meaning, and citizens start to wonder about the ability of the nation-state to protect them.", shows that the new conditions are promoted indeed very fast.

Why now? It we go further, we should include the scenario of the preparation for the desirable conditions on the prospect of a European Leftist rise. Far-right perception, which is that we have to deal actually with a war between the Christian and the Muslim world, is often adopted by the mainstream media indirectly, embodied inside the narratives of terror and fear. The establishment is trying to build a scenery of constant terror and shape a pre-determined situation, so that it would be very difficult to change, even in the case that the Left will manage to rise to power in many European countries.

Actually, we have to deal with a gigantic provocative operation. It shouldn't surprise us because we live in a globalized, increasingly interconnected world. History shows that the far-Right was used by the big capital to impose its interests, especially in difficult times. Now, it could be proved very useful for this "transportation" of the conflict theaters from borders to urban centers, with the help of the narrative about the supposed "clash of civilizations".

Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga described it once: “Maroni should do what I did when I was Minister of the Interior. University students? Let them do what they want. Withdraw the police from streets and universities, infiltrate the movement with provoking agents ready for anything ["agenti provocatori" is the Italian term] and let them devastate shops, put fire to the cars and put cities to the sword for ten days. Then, strengthen by people’s support, the sound of the sirens from ambulances will have to overwhelm that from the police and carabinieri [italian military police]. Law enforcement officers should pitilessly beat the shit out of protesters and send them all to the hospital. They should not arrest them since the courts would free them immediately, but they should beat them savagely, and they should beat savagely as well those teachers that incites them: not old professors, just the young school teachers.” (http://www.prisonplanet.com/ex-italian-president-provocateur-riots-then-beat-the-shit-out-of-protesters.html)

The hypocritical leaders who were posing in the front line of the Charlie Hebdo march, didn't bother to refer on the everyday suicide attacks in Iraq who kill dozens of innocent people almost in every day basis, probably because this is a routine situation there, or, maybe because of their huge responsibilities about this situation. But the "Iraqization" of Europe would be a very convenient pretext for the extreme militarization of the big urban centers, under the tolerance of the people, simulating an authoritarian regime. This is actually the process for the enforcement of Feudal globalization, using terror as a key tool.

"Training" societies in tolerating interceptions

Some politicians like Bill Clinton and George W. Bush adopted this perception later and tried to establish Western-type democracies based on this concept of Negative Liberty, maintaining also the "fundamentalism" of the big, mostly American, corporations and banks. They applied a massive violence in other countries (Iraq, Yugoslavia, Somalia, etc.), bringing another bloodbath through a different way. At the same time, they imposed progressively, new measures of repression and restrictions of civil liberties in Western democracies in the name of protection against terrorism, thus verifying Berlin's warning. Governments used propaganda and tactics based on human psychology and therefore, the belief that interceptions and repression measures are inevitable was inserted inside the Western neo-rationalism, as an excuse to secure Western societies from terrorist attacks. [...] The concept of Liberty itself tends to disappear permanently inside increasingly militarized societies of private armies.

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

Iran & Russia pledge to cut US dollar from global trade, strengthen China alliance

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

Official documents prove “Top Gun: Maverick” is military propaganda

by Alan Macleod   Part 4 - Hollywood: the military’s wingman   “Top Gun: Maverick” has been produced at a time when the United States is currently throttling Iran with illegal and deadly sanctions. In early 2020, the Trump administration assassinated top Iranian general and statesman Qassem Soleimani, and influential figures in the United States have called for an unprovoked nuclear attack on the country. Yet none of this context is mentioned, leaving the legality of the depicted attack unquestioned. As Stahl told MintPress , the basic assumption is that “ the U.S. has the right to violate international law and strike any country for any reason. ” “ Imagine if this film came out of Iran and was about striking an Israeli or U.S. nuclear facility, ” he said. “ Heads would explode with accusations of hard-line propaganda. ” Therefore, “Top Gun: Maverick” falls in line in promoting a remarkably militaristic society; one that spends almost as much on war as every other nation on Earth combi
