The West On The Path Of Full-Spectrum Confrontation With Russia

Illustrative Image

All mechanisms available: NATO, G7, EU, and even a proposed new European community.

Written by Uriel Araujo, researcher with a focus on international and ethnic conflicts.

In his speech to celebrate the Europa Day on May 9, during the Conference on the Future of Europe, recently re-elected French President Emmanuel Macron warned against “humiliating” Russia, reminding the European leaders that peace must be built – with Russia and Ukraine “around the table”. His conciliatory comments however can be contrasted with his proposal to further expand the European Community to include Ukraine and other Eastern European countries. It also contrasts with the G7 joint statement issued the day before, which reads almost like a declaration of war on Russia.

The European authorities at the ceremony on May 9 tried to keep a festive climate even while the specter of global war haunts the continent. The European Union itself is in crisis, and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen acknowledged so by stating that she backs reforming it by changing the unanimous voting requirement (on certain issues) because reaching an agreement with all 27 member states certainly slows down the decision making process – as was the case with the Ukrainian war itself, she remarked. Von der Leyen said she is in favor of reforming the EU treaties themselves “if need be”.

Macron, too, suggested the member states discuss reforming such treaties in the upcoming June Council summit. He stated the European organisms have proven themselves to be ineffective both during the pandemic crisis and during the current war. The impending addition of new members from Eastern Europe, including Ukraine, was also emphasized by Clement Beaune, secretary of state for European Affairs, on May 10.

However, Macron’s bold proposal is not just about “reforming” the current bloc; it is about creating a new and more inclusive organization. Macron also said, and this is perhaps the key to understanding of his proposal, that Ukraine, “because of its struggle and because of its courage, is already a member of our Europe, our family, our union”. He added, however, that the country’s accession into the EU could take several years or even decades unless, he says, “we decide to lower the standards for accession and rethink the unity for our Europe.”

In any case, at this point, “plan A” for Europe, in Macron and von der Leyen’s view, appears to be “lowering EU standards” for admitting new members, while Macron’s “plan B” is about creating a more inclusive parallel bloc. Actually, both initiatives could be pursued simultaneously, if there is enough political energy for that amid today’s crises. The European Union itself, in this scenario, would function as a kind of a more exclusive club – albeit with somewhat more relaxed rules for admission, after reforming the Treaty. The proposed new European community, in turn, could re-attract the United Kingdom into the European orbit, and, more importantly, more Eastern European states, including of course Ukraine.

Geopolitically, it is about bringing most of the continent into the Western sphere of influence, be it through EU membership or through a different political community – and this does not exclude further expanding the Western military alliance (NATO), also. This proposal, to sum it up, is basically the enhancement of the very process University of Chicago political scientist John Mearsheimer describes as the main cause for the Russian-Ukrainian crisis since 2014. In order to accomplish that, the European leadership seems to be willing to turn a blind eye to ultranationalism and even neo-Nazism.

This is not unprecedented: during the so-called Cold War, NATO and the CIA, in a complex cooperation with various European intelligence agencies, organized a series of clandestine “stay-behind” “secret armies” by funding and arming neo-Fascist and neo-Nazi paramilitary groups as part of the infamous Operation Gladio. Some of these groups were responsible for a series of terrorist attacks in Italy, Belgium, and other European countries, as part of their “strategy of tension”.

Finally, one should notice that on May 8, when the West celebrates Allied Victory agains Nazi Germany, the day before the aforementioned Europa Day ceremony took place, the G7 issued a joint statement which assures “full solidarity and support” for Kiev so that it can defend itself from “future acts of aggression”. It thereby makes it even clearer that the Ukrainian conflict is part of a US-led proxy war against Russia. Moreover, it commemorates the end of the Second World War and the defeat of fascism, while in the next paragraph, implicitly compares Russia with Hitler’s Germany, thus opening the path for its further demonization.

The fact that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski has been basically hostage to neo-Nazi armed groups funded by the West makes the statement sound somewhat ironic in a perverse way. An example of this is the fact that on May 27 2019, only one week after Zelensky’s inauguration, Ukrainian’s Obozrevatel news site published an interview with  Dmytro Yarosh, co-founder of the Right Sector and then commander of the Ukrainian Volunteer Army. In this interview, he stated Zelenski would “lose his life” and would “hang on a tree on Khreshchatyk” if he “betrayed” Ukraine by pursuing an end to the civil war in Donbas as was his election campaign’s promise. Yarosh is a dangerous far-right paramilitary leader who was on Interpol international wanted list from 2015 to 2016. He is currently an adviser to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valerii Zaluzhny. It is thus hard to see how Kiev’s blatant neo-Nazi problem can be accommodated into the European values.

The G7 document also boasts of its “unprecedented package of coordinated sanctions” against the Russian people. According to the statement, the G7 will take measures to “prevent the provision of key services on which Russia depends”, thus reinforcing its “isolation across all sectors of its economy.” It ends by stating that “We remain united in our resolve that President Putin must not win his war against Ukraine.”

The West seems to have chosen the path of full-spectrum confrontation with Russia – employing for that matter all mechanisms available: NATO, G7, the European Union, and even a proposed new European community. This confrontation includes admittedly unprecedented sanctions, a campaign of Russophobia, informational, monetary, and financial warfare.

It’s called Russia’s special operation – Russia isn’t even using their whole army/air force/etc kiddo. Claim down. Ukraine has the full support of NATO and the US – How much money has The West sent Ukraine in the past few months again? How many weapons did the West send? How many officers did the West send to Ukraine?

The US is the main ruler in Ukraine – it is a fact. They said it clearly – The West do anything to “weaken” Russia. How so? By the blood of Ukrainians.

Get your head out of your ass and listen to the Ukrainian force at the front line. It is not what you might want to hear from them buddy. So, go and watch your CNN or BBC – they tell you all the BS your want to hear.

Ever get up close to a lava flow? It’s unrelenting, lethal, spell binding, hypnotic and relentless and nothing can stop it. That is what the experts know is happening with Russia’s cleansing of naZi filth in rump Ukropland, village by village, city by city. USSA and Urupp would have carpet bombed and slaughtered everything in their way….then send in some girly men and manly girls to shoot the injured and dying survivors. Russia is fighting a completely different war and intent on reintegrating the normal Ukroppers back under the protective arm of Mr Bear when the natostan grip is destroyed.

Urupp is truly doomed for playing the naZi card yet again for its khaZar owners in USSA. There will be no forgiveness for this treachery.

The areas takenand bombarded by the Russian mainly are where the Russian in Ukriane live and lived.

And the US is just amazing right? Got been by a bunch of barefoot farmers after waging a war for 20 years and having spent 2 trillion dollars. Oh yeah let’s not forget leaving behind 80 billion dollars worth of equipment just to see your puppet government collapse in one day.

Yeah that’s what American success is all about!

It’s all over bar the collapse of €urolandia and the end of the €urodollah (this year) not to mention the main event…the much awaited and long overdue civil war reloaded in Slumville, USSA and all the dead Ukroppers they can stack in rump Ukropland won’t matter nary a tad in the great scheme of things. Do you really imagine that global cutout clowns like Musk, Soros, Gates of hell and Satan Klaws and all the whore political filth “running” Urupp are anything more than meat puppet jokes being fisted by global khaZar bankster gangster$?

Poke the Bear and you get limbs torn off and monstrous bite marks in your wobbly ass. They know all this in the EUSSR sewer in Natostan sewer Brussels. The only war will be with their drug addled mercenaries and Ukrop tractor drivers and farm laborers apart from local europigs crushing pensioners skulls in the coming winter collapse of all things €uroPeon.

Onward to the end of the angloZionaZi empire of shit

Vladimir Putin, as suas “forças de paz” foram à Ucrânia para libertá-la de um regime “nazista” e afastar a “ameaça existencial” da Otan. Em seus sonhos, a esse ponto a Otan estaria desestabilizada e a Ucrânia teria sido eliminada como país, ou, ao menos, o regime de Kiev estaria decapitado e os territórios do leste, dominados. Nada disso aconteceu. Ao contrário. O mais recente revés é o movimento de Suécia e Finlândia rumo à Otan. Na verdade, a esta altura, com a ameaça representada pelo regime delinquente russo, é natural que países próximos da Rússia procurem proteção. O mito do ditador Putin que era invencível caiu, a Rússia não tão poderosa como se falava. Mas sua agressão não provocada mudou a opinião pública. Ficou claro que não são os vizinhos que ameaçam “existencialmente” a Rússia, mas o contrário. Suécia e Finlândia já são democracias e membros da União Europeia. A decisão de ingressar na Otan é livre e soberana, e faz sentido estratégico para a segurança desses países e os da Otan, em especial os do Báltico. Ambos cooperam há décadas com a Otan e, se integrados, podem emular as estratégias da Noruega de convivência com a Rússia. moderar sua retórica belicosa e, no momento oportuno, participar de uma negociação de paz, oferecendo garantias aos interesses ucranianos em relação à sua soberania e território e, ao mesmo tempo, uma saída “honrosa” para Putin. Isso envolverá acordos sobre armas convencionais e nucleares entre Otan e Rússia. Mas, agora, a Otan está mais forte, não mais fraca, para defender seus membros. Suécia e Finlândia são só mais duas nações democráticas e soberanas que estão se unindo a outras na Otan, uma aliança de defesa, não um império como o que Putin tenta exumar. Como resumiu o presidente finlandês em mensagem a Moscou: “Você causou isso. Olhe-se no espelho” ditador paranoico.

In the spring of 1999, in the build up to the Kosovo War, I had an epiphany that the superpower rivalries had not disappeared with the Cold War, that world war had been postponed not cancelled. This has been the subject of my writing ever since. It looks like the prediction I made back then is about to become true. https://patternofhistory.wordpress.com/

There’s something we’re not being apprised of, that the Nazi leadership isn’t making public. They seem to be more frantic for a second attempt at Operation Barbarossa that Hitler was for the first.

All that Senior Araujo said in the article is true, excepting the fact that the Banderovites are not “neo” Nazis, like the skinheads that play at following the Hitler cult, but deserve the respect of the name “Nazi”, since the OUN and UPA have historic roots in Hitler’s global networks, which function today not only in Ukraine, but throughout Latin America and in Canada and the United States, which is the Third Reich’s new homeland. It’s a typical Nazi trick for them to call their enemies ‘”Nazis”, or if they’re the typical Jewish Nazis (as were the Revisionist Zionists of Betar, LEHI, and Irgun, who allied with the Axis until Stalingrad convinced them it was no longer healthy) to call them “antisemites”.

Nothing new in this rather naive article. “Geopolitically, it is about bringing most of the continent into the Western sphere of influence”. He forgot to define what, geopolitically, is “Western”? Is it simply the 5 eyes manipulating behind the scenes as usual? All the war crimes mentioned in connection with Gladio should be acknowledged as such, otherwise it just reads like any other paid transatlantic brief, i.e. propaganda.
