Listen to a reading of this article: I know how to stop Vladimir Putin once and for all. I here offer my strategic wizardry to the western empire free of charge. Before I reveal my unstoppable plan, we must first understand that the Associated Press
The thickness of skulls of today's news consumers is such that Caitlin's suggestion may as well be taken seriously.
We have passed several event horizons as the empire goes into terminal stages. The corruptocracy's leveraging of the Financial Crisis into more riches, not felony convictions, said the end stage was in progress, and Covid as monopoly turbocharger and dystopic individual decimater was a half-time show of sick avarice. The US blatantly blowing up NORD, what happens when the predators make eugenics ala carte, your next meal service..
Once the UKRAINIAN EASTERN REPUPLICS become a part of THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION, NATO and the NEOCONS are going to perceive that their own plans for GLOBAL CONTROL are backed into a corner. PSYCHOPATHS, finding themselves in that pickle, may just NUKE a WESTERN city or two and blame RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA to "justify" a "RETALIATORY" nuclear strike.
I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this point. These fuckers are going to get a lot more people killed before all this ends. And for what? Pieces of land? Tribal pride? For what? What are all these lives being obliterated for? What is the point of all this? To make a few more humans even richer than they already are? That this is all Putin's fault, and the West are innocent as bridal virgins? What is all this killing for? And what is its purpose? And does anyone know how it's going to end? Does Joe Biden keep a crystal ball in his pajama pocket?
Your best yet Caitlin. Impeccable logic.
I just went to flight tracker 24/7 and on the night of 23rd and 25th September there is a US helicopter loitering for hours over the exact spot on the Nordstream pipelines that the damage was done. Huh? I wonder what it was doing there ... over the sea ... at night for five hours. Probably just ummm ... okay I got nothing.
The only madmen involved in this whole fiasco are flailing about idiotically in Kiev and Washington ...
Well, as compelling as is John Brennan's opinion, brain cramp, statement, concerning Putin's need to scare the world by acting totally irrationally and against what appears his own best interests, it is the US that has a tradition of claiming madness as a means to enhance its power. According to Wikipedia the "madman" angle is an old schtick recommended by even Machiavelli. When the guise of the good guy becomes a little tattered, embrace the opposite.: "Mad Bomber Harris," was a distinction that carried no shame at all. Nixon used the threat, as did Eisenhower. But it's
redundant the days. Most people know who's crazy, and it isn't Russia. There is credible evidence the US destroyed the Russian gas pipelines, and sheer logic supports it. The madman theory is a Western thing. But we should soon know what most ordinary people believe: were their problems inflicted by their own leaders, or does Brennen trump common sense?
I invite you all to read the summary of Robert Barnes accusations on the sabotage of the Nordstream pipelines. The USA has declared open war on Germany! (Moon of Alabama agrees)
If you are so inclined to watch the Duran video that is linked from the above, I think you'll enjoy what Barnes has to say.
Barnes is a Trump supporter. I have to admit though he is so smooth and intelligent and can spin such a great story, I find myself having a bit of sympathy for Trump. But then Matt Taibbi has also been writing stories sympathetic to Trump. The interesting part for both isn't that they so much "like" Trump but are defending principles of what it is to be a good lawyer or journalist.
We seem to live in a topsy-turvy world where black is white and the truth is a lie.
We need to keep our wits about us. Not an easy thing to do when threatened with a depression worse than the "Great Depression", the beginning of a "New Cold War" (that is going to be even more antagonistic than the last one).
This is all because of the American Oligarchy. Anyone who doesn't recognize the Fascists in charge of America at the moment just isn't paying attention. It isn't a Republican thing. It isn't a Democratic thing. Those people come to power solely at the consent of the Oligarchy -- the people with all the money.
This is not going to end well.
Even better idea: NATO to build back (better :P) NS1 and NS2, then guard them, to undo Russia's devious plan :P.
That'll teach them Russians to blow up their own infrastructure!
Gosh, I would have thought implementing the Minsk Agreements might have stopped him, but I'm down with this! LOL
Any war propaganda requires painting the chosen enemy as incredibly incompetent and at the same time all-powerful.
According to the Russiagate conspiracy theory, Putin had powers bordering on psychic mind control, but at the same time he had no clue how to use these superpowers.
I simply love your wonderful sarcasm! Let’s wait! 😎
An elegant, beautiful and actually funny solution, Caitlin. Love it.
One of the practices of yoga is self reflection, which often means to see within our own self that which we accuse others of being. [Headshake.]
And who came up with MAD? Does anyone remember that acronym? The madness of our sociopathic society has come to a point of concentration that is derived from having been *us* for a long long time. It is now that we have been given this opportunity to see how much psychotic madness our collective has accepted for decades, and in reality centuries. We have met the enemy, and the enemy is us. We created this insanity and now that we are waking up to that, we can start to laugh at it and remove its energy to control and kill. Thank you Caitlin,
Enough hopium breathers out there still believing in the US government. Time for its end. Nothing against US citizen, wonderful, but the last governments are all fully in the swamp with tentacles spread to ukraine swamp enriching themself while corrupting the former good people of ukraine, this has to end. Just look at the doings of Hunter Biden in Ukraine, or Victoria Nuland the last decade there, key figure in installing the US puppet government there is now in ukraine, helpful to enhance the swamp and abuse of the ukraine. Biolabs where again a key role, not only the US government tested there also big pharma abused the ukraine citizens for human trials.
