Okay, so lets examine into maybe why the Russians are so miffed about Ukraine and why the US has fumbled the ball diplomatically so far, by issuing empty threats and ultimatum instead of really engaging Russia in serious discussions about ways to defuse the crisis. To understand what is at issue here, we need to back to the end of the cold war.
Ever since the collapse the iron curtain NATO has managed to surround Russia from the Baltic to the Black sea.
In addition to containment there is a conscious intent by Brussels (NATO HQ) and Washington to strangle Russia, by cutting it completely off from sea and land access beyond its borders or for its fleet and military supplies to remain mobile.
Russia today like America is pivoting to the east and looking for ways to counterbalance NATO by means of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (which comprises Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan) .
Witness in addition to the drive of NATO east, the stalled plans to install a missile base and radar network in Russia’s NATO neighbours, which Washington now wishes to ramp up again.
It has no designs on former East Bloc states, which are all now, NATO members but the west wants to bait the country into a confrontation on its western flank.
The current crisis in Ukraine has made it plainly evident the West and by extension NATO wants to continue its eastward push or incursion into Russia’s front lawn and the same time try to scuttle all attempts by Moscow to create the formation of an alternative strategic, economic and yes military alliance to NATO.
Why does Putin not trust the West?
Let me cast your minds to when the mainstream media televised Gaddafi’s capture and execution on October 20th 2011, Hillary Clinton and rest of the puppet political elite jumped for joy, this man was not allowed a fair trial. However when Osama Bin Ladin was killed, the US. Govt and mainstream media censored all the photographs and film footage relating to his capture and execution. So why the double standards? The NATO led intervention was aimed at seizing the North African country’s huge oil and gold reserves.
Sasha Baron Cohen explains it in a nutshell in his movie, The Dictator:
Baa Humbug, I don’t believe a single word of the political elite talking about human rights, if the Western Powers were truly interested in human rights they would not prop up disgraceful regimes like Saudi Arabia nor tolerate Bahrain’s treatment of it’s citizens. While I’m on the subject of human rights, I don’t hear the mainstream media covering the plight of the Palestinians when they were bombed to smithereens in Gaza in 2008.
This intervention in Libya was all about Gaddafi‘s plan to introduce the Gold Dinar, a single African currency made from gold, a true sharing of the wealth among the people.
Now Gaddafi might have looked mad as a hatter, but this man was sitting on two important commodities, that’s right…Oil and gold, and hey presto it all starts to make sense.
Let me take you further back to the year 2000, when Saddam Hussein announced Iraqi oil would be traded in euros, and not U.S. dollars.Guess what happened? The western powers invaded Iraq. The power banking elite are hell bent on making war on those nations that reject their monetary and economic system of enslavement. You know I never thought I would ever agree with British MP George Galloway on most things, but after watching him on PMQ’S (Prime Minister Questions) I think he’s the dogs bollocks.
It is my belief that we are all in a state of hypnosis. Some of us lucky ones will try acquire gold and silver in addition to all the other worthless crap. Don’t be a slave!
In the name of the Gold and Silver Amen
