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.

Διπλό στρατηγικό χτύπημα Τσίπρα κατά του καταρρέοντος Μητσοτακικού καθεστώτος

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

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

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

by Alan Macleod   Part 3 - A grim reality   When pressed on its involvement in Hollywood, the Pentagon insists it is there merely to ensure that the military is presented as realistically as possible. Indeed, the “Top Gun: Maverick” production agreement states that its liaisons were there “ to provide on-set dialogue and depict action scenes accurately. ” Cruise, who played Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, is on the same page, stating that he demanded the movie “ had to be as real as possible. ” Yet the entire premise of the movie – that Iran is developing a nuclear weapon and that the U.S. military would have to scramble together a plan to bomb the country in a matter of days – is absurd in itself. Maverick himself often egregiously breaks Navy rules, disobeying senior officers and stealing a plane – something that would never be tolerated. Furthermore, there are a number of crazy acrobatic stunts that are supposedly part of Maverick’s training program, including one where he flies directly

Paul Mason’s covert intelligence-linked plot to destroy The Grayzone exposed

Leaked emails reveal British journalist Paul Mason plotting with an intel contractor to destroy The Grayzone through “relentless deplatforming” and a “full nuclear legal” attack. The scheme is part of a wider planned assault on the UK left.   by Kit Klarenberg and Max Blumenthal Part 5 - Consulting Nina Jankowicz on paranoid scheme against Consortium News On April 8, Mason emailed Khan to express alarm about a piece in Consortium News , the independent news platform founded by the late Robert Parry in 1995, questioning the Western narrative of the Bucha massacre. “ Who’s behind Consortium News? ”, the subject header read. Assistance soon arrived from none other than Andy Pryce from the Counter Disinformation and Media Development unit at the UK Foreign Office. To learn more about Consortium News , Pryce had consulted Nina Jankowicz, then the chief of the Department of Homeland Security’s newly inaugurated Disinformation Governance Board. (Jankowicz would resign her post in disgrace jus

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
