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

 
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 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.
 
These two goals were clearly described (among others) in a 2019 report by the top US think tank, RAND Corporation, as has been shown in previous article.

However, although Putin indeed appears to be stuck in a bloody war (longer than he had probably predicted), the damage for Russia is not as serious as the US imperialists wanted, as it seems. Putin appeared to be ready for the consequences and it looks like he was prepared for such a war, probably since at least 2014.

Since at least 2014, Russia, China and other countries of the global south intensified efforts to decouple their economies from the petro-dollar and co-operate to establish an alternative system of transactions. Some of them considered even the possibility to create state cryptocurrencies.

And the fact that Russia and China were preparing ground for an alternative to Dollar currency system of transactions (for at least a decade), can be seen also in the case of Saudi Arabia, a long-time Anglo-American ally. This year, the Saudis considered the possibility to accept Yuan instead of Dollar for Chinese oil sales.

It is certain that the US imperialists and their Western allies deeply underestimated Russia's ability to withstand repeated waves of heavy sanctions. In fact, the overuse of sanction policy against Russia and other countries who resisted US imperialism in previous years, pushed them to seek alternatives and co-operate with each other. Which means that the US and its European pets were shooting their own legs with their stupid policy, not just since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but since at least a decade ago.
 
The out-of-touch Western clowns seriously hoped that most of the countries would join them in their crusade against Russia, only to find that China, India and almost the entire global south refused to obey to this imperial mandate. This is a strong indication for the fact that the US imperialists and their allies have taken a divorce from reality, as they expected the countries that suffered from their sanctions and colonialism in previous years to follow them against Russia unquestionably.
 
As a result, Russia closed more energy deals with various countries, among them the two most populous, who are thirsty for energy resources to cover their rapidly rising energy needs. 
 
Additionally, the Ruble became stronger and Russia is playing cat and mouse with the EU, demonstrating that it could throw Germany and most of Europe into an unprecedented energy crisis ahead of the coming winter. Which is another indication of how much the below-average European leaders have taken divorce from reality. They were seriously believing that they could decouple Europe from Russian gas quite easily and replace it with other sources in almost no time. As if it is that simple.
 

And that's partly because their US "friends" assured them that they would cover most of the Russian gas with much more expensive US LNG. The level of naivety of European "leaders" is really mind blowing. 
 
The frenzy US imperialism is out of control and US imperialists will not hesitate to sacrifice their European allies in their effort to bring Russia to its knees. And as in the process they find it harder and harder to achieve, they become more unstable, ruthless and paranoid. To the point that they could even risk a WWIII with incalculable consequences for the entire planet.

Proof Twitter censored anyone CIA & FBI told them to!

The Jimmy Dore Show   When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed. And that’s why government agents insisted Twitter censor accounts promoting Shokin’s book, along with countless others in the tsunami of demands for censorship from government agencies that were flooding into the social media company prior to the 2020 election. Guest host Aaron Maté and journalist Matt Taibbi discuss the very dangerous precedent established by this unseemly private-public censorial partnership.

January 21, 2010: The day corporate dictatorship destroyed the last remnants of US Democracy

globinfo freexchange     As we described many times in this blog, corporate power grew rapidly since the early 70s with the rise of neoliberalism and its subsequent establishment as the dominant culture, especially in the West.  In the motherland of neoliberalism, the United States, corporations essentially legalized corruption in politics during the 70s in order to capture the entire political system and put it under their complete control. As David Harvey describes in his book A Brief History of Neoliberalism :                          The supposedly ‘progressive’ campaign finance laws of 1971 in effect legalized the financial corruption of politics. A crucial set of Supreme Court decisions began in 1976 when it was first established that the right of a corporation to make unlimited money contributions to political parties and political action committees was protected under the First Amendment guaranteeing the rights of individuals (in this instance corporations) to freedom of speec

Julian Assange and the rapid decline of liberal Democracy

by system failure We are now in 2023, and after 1362 days, Julian Assange is still in prison. If you seek something to measure the decline of liberal Democracy in our days, the Julian Assange case will help you a lot. And it's most amazing that in the era of information overflow (with plenty of means available to transfer it almost instantly in every corner of the planet), there are still many people who are unaware of the Assange case.   The origins of this deterioration go back in 1968 when the Left made a disastrous compromise with the powers of the establishment. Since the early 70s and after Nixon's shock , the cultural domination of neoliberalism paved the way for the restriction of certain types of liberties in Western societies.  The 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 became the perfect opportunity for the establishment to abolish instantly a significant portion of the civil liberties that came out of the 1968 compromise. The liberal Democracy in the West suffered a heavy

New JFK/CIA revelations & our alarmingly secretive security state

Glenn Greenwald   Allen Dulles was probably the second or third most powerful person in Washington - maybe the most powerful in 1950s - when he ran the CIA until JFK fired him in 1961 because he blamed Dulles for the failed fiasco in the Bay of Pigs invasion in Cuba. And Dulles had every reason in the world to want to kill Kennedy, as did a lot of people in the CIA.  

China pushes de-dollarization with gold reserves, Argentina yuan currency swap deal

Advancing global de-dollarization, China’s central bank is boosting its gold reserves while signing currency swap deals in yuan with countries like Argentina, encouraging the use of renminbi instead of US dollars.   by Ben Norton  Part 4 - China uses currency swap lines to help debt-burdened countries, while advancing de-dollarization China began conducted currency swaps with Argentina back in 2009, under left-wing President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Deals have been repeatedly renewed since then. But the South American nation is not the only country that has worked out a system like this with the East Asian giant. In December, the Wall Street Journal reported that Beijing’s central bank is using an “ unusual channel ”: “ currency-swap lines to support governments that borrowed heavily from Chinese banks ”. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has given hundreds of billions of dollars worth of yuan to dozens of countries in exchange for their domestic currencies, the newspaper repor
