The Empire Should be Placed on Suicide Watch

By THE SAKER

In all the political drama taking place in the US as a result of the attempted color revolution against Trump, the bigger picture sometimes gets forgotten. And yet, this bigger picture is quite amazing, because if we look at it we will see irrefutable signs that the Empire in engaged in some bizarre slow motion version of seppuku; and the only mystery left is who, or what, will serve as the Empire’s kaishakunin.

SEPPUKU: Japanese ritual suicide by disembowelment; harakiri. KAISHAKUNIN: The executioner; the mercy killer who finishes off the suicide victim in his final agonies by chopping off his head with a sword. [LD]


I would even argue that the Empire is pursuing a full-spectrum policy of self-destruction on several distinct levels, with each level contributing the overall sum total suicide. And when I refer to self-destructive behavior I don’t mean long-term issues such as the non-sustainability of the capitalist economic model or the social consequences of a society which not only is unable to differentiate right from wrong, but which now decrees that deviant behavior is healthy and normal. These are what I call “long term walls” into which we will, inevitably, crash, but which are comparatively further away than some “immediate walls”. Let me list a few of these:

Political suicide: the Neocons’ refusal to accept the election of Donald Trump has resulted in a massive campaign to de-legitimize him. What the Neocons clearly fail to see, or don’t care about, is that by de-legitimizing Trump they are also de-legitimizing the entire political process which brought Trump to power and upon which the United States is built as a society.

As a direct result of this campaign, not only are millions of Americans becoming disgusted with the political system they were indoctrinated to believe in, but internationally the notion of “American democracy” is becoming a sad joke.

And just to make things worse, the US corporate media is finally revealing its true face and has now unapologetically shown the entire world that not only is it not in any way “fair” or “objective”, but that it is a 100% prostituted propaganda machine which faithfully serves the interests of the US “deep state”.

A key element of the quasi-constant brainwashing of the average American has always been the regular holding of elections. Never mind that, at least until now, the outcome of these elections made very little difference inside the US and none at all outside, the goal was never to consult the people – the goal has always been to give the illusion of democracy and people-power.

Now that the Democrats say that the Russians rigged the elections and the Republicans say that it was the Democrats and their millions of dead voters who tried stealing it, it become rather obvious that these elections were always a joke, a pseudo-democratic “liturgy”, a brainwashing ritual – you name it – but never about anything real.

The emergence of the concept of the 1% can be “credited” to the Obama Administration, since it was during Obama that the entire “Occupy Wall Street” movement took off, but the ultimate unmasking of the viciously evil true face of that 1% must be credited to Hillary with her truly historical confession in which she openly declared that those who oppose her were a “basket of deplorables”. We already knew, thanks to Victoria Nuland, what the AngloZionist leaders thought of the people of Europe, now we know what they think of the people of the USA: exactly the same thing.

The bottom line is this: I don’t think that the moral authority and political credibility of the US have ever been lower than today. Decades of propaganda by Hollywood and the official US media machine have now collapsed and nobody buys that counter-factual nonsense anymore.

Foreign policy suicide

Let’s see what options there are to choose from. The Neocons want a war with Russia which the Trump people don’t. The Trump people, however, want, well maybe not a war, although that option is very much on the table, but at least a very serious confrontation with China, North Korea or Iran, and about half of them would also like some kind of confrontation with Russia. There is absolutely nobody, at least at the top, who would dare to suggest that a confrontation or, even worse, a war with China, Iran, North Korea or Russia would be a disaster, a calamity for the USA. In fact, serious people with impressive credentials and a lot of gravitas are discussing these possibilities as if they were real, as it the US could in some sense prevail. This is laughable. Well, no, it is not. But it would be if it wasn’t so frightening and depressing. The truth is very, very different.

While it is probably not impossible for the United States to prevail, in purely military terms, against the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea in a war, the potential risks are nothing short of immense. And I don’t mean the risk posed by the North Korean nukes which, apparently, is also quite real. I mean the risk of starting a war against a country which has Seoul within conventional artillery range, an active duty army of well over one million people and 180,000 special forces. Let us assume for a second that North Korea has no air force and no navy and an army composed of only 1M+ soldiers, 21k+ artillery pieces and 180k special forces. How do you propose to deal with that threat? If you have an easy, obvious solution, you have watched too many Hollywood movies. You probably also don’t understand the terrain.

North Korean armed forces would rapidly collapse under a sustained attack by the US and South Korea. I did not say that I believe that this would happen, only that I don’t exclude it. Should that happen, the US might well prevail relatively rapidly, at least in purely military terms. However, please keep in mind that any military operation has to serve a political goal and, in that sense, I cannot imagine any scenario under which the US would walk away from a war against North Korea with anything remotely resembling a real “victory”. There is a paraphrase of something Ho Chi Minh allegedly told to the French in the 1940s which I really like. It goes like this:” we kill some of you, you kill a lot of us, and then we win”.

That is how a war with North Korea would probably play out.

I call this the “American curse”: Americans are very good at killing people, but they are not good at winning wars. Still, in the case of North Korea there is at least a possibility of a military victory, even if at a potentially huge cost. With Iran, Russia or China there is no such possibility at all: a war with any of them would be a guaranteed disaster (I wrote about a war in Iran here and about a war with Russia too many times to count). So why is it that even though out of the four possible wars, one is a potential disaster and the three others are a guaranteed disaster, why is it that these are discussed as if they were potential options?!

The reason for that can be found in the unique mix of crass ignorance and political cowardice of the entire US political class. First, a lot (most?) of US politicians believe in their own silly propaganda about the US armed forces being “the best” in “the world” (no evidence needed!). But even those who are smart enough to realize that this is a load of baloney which nobody outside the US still takes seriously, they know that saying that publicly is political suicide. So they pretend, go along, and keep on repetitively spewing the patriotic mantra about “rah, rah, USA, USA, ‘Merica number one, we are the best” etc. Some figure that since the US spends more on aggression than the rest of the planet combined, that must mean that the US armed forces must be “better” (whatever that means). To the birthplace of “bigger is better” the answer is self-evident. It is also completely wrong.

Eventually, something crazy inevitably happens. Like in Syria were the State Department had one policy, the Pentagon another and the CIA yet another one. The resulting cognitive dissonance is removed by engaging in classical doublethink: “yes, we screwed up over and over, but we are still the best”. Ironically, that kind of mindset is at the core of the American inability to learn from past mistakes. If the choice is between an honest evaluation of past operations and political expediency, the latter always prevails (at least amongst civilians, US servicemen are often far more capable of self-critical evaluation, especially in ranks up to Colonel and below, the problem here is that civilians and generals rarely listen to them).

The result is total chaos: the US foreign policy is wholly dependent on the US ability to threaten the use of military force, but the harsh reality is that every country out there which dared to defy Uncle Sam did that only after coming to the conclusion that the US did not have the means to crush it militarily.

In other words, only the weak, which are already de-facto US colonies, fear the USA. Or, put differently, the only countries who dare to defy Uncle Sam are the strong ones.

And just to make it worse, there is no real US foreign policy. What there is is only the sum vector of the different foreign policies desired by various more or less covert “deep state” actors, agencies and individuals. That resulting “sum vector” is inevitably short-term, focuses on a quick fix approach, and unable to take into account any complexity.

As for the US “diplomacy” it simply doesn’t exist. You don’t need diplomats to deliver demands, bribes, ultimatums and threats. You don’t need educated people. Nor do you need people with any understanding of the “other”. All you need is one arrogant self-enamored bully and one interpreter.

We saw the most compelling evidence of the total rigor mortis of the US diplomatic corps when 51 US “diplomats” demanded that Obama bomb Syria. The rest of the world could just observe in amazement, sadness, bewilderment and total disgust.

The bottom line is this: there is no “US diplomacy”.

The US have simply let that entire field atrophy to the point were it ceased to exist. When so many baffled observers try to understand what the US policy in the Ukraine or Syria is, they are making a mistaken assumption – that there is a US foreign policy to being with. I would argue that the US diplomacy slowly and quietly passed away, sometime after James Baker.

Military suicide

The US military was never a very impressive one, certainly not when compared to the British, Russian or German ones. But it did have a couple of very strong points including the ability to produce a lot of technical innovations which made it possible to produce new, sometimes quite revolutionary, weapons. And if the US track record on ground operations was rather modest, the US did prove to be a most capable adversary in naval and aerial warfare. I don’t think that it can be denied that for most of the years following WWII the US had the most powerful and sophisticated navy and airforce in the world. Then, gradually, things started getting worse and worse as the costs of the very expensive ships and aircraft shot through the roof while the quality of the produced systems appeared to be gradually degrading.

Weapons systems which looked nothing short of awesome in the lab and test grounds proved to be almost useless once they were delivered to their end user on the battlefield. What happened? How did a country which produced the UH-1 Huey or the F-16 suddenly start producing Apaches and F-35s?! The explanation is painfully simple: corruption.

Not only did the US military industrial complex bloat beyond any reasonable size, it also cloaked itself in so many layers of secrecy that massive corruption became inevitable. And when I speak of “massive corruption” I am not talking about millions but billions or even trillions.

How? Simple – the Pentagon claimed did not have the accounting tools needed to properly account for the missing money and that the money was therefore not really “missing”.

Another trick – no bid contracts. Or contracts which cover all the private contractor’s costs, no matter how high or ridiculous. Desert Storm was a bonanza for the Military Industrial complex, just as was 9/11 and the Global War on Terrorism. Billions of dollars got printed out of thin air, distributed (mostly under the cover of national security), hidden (secrecy) and stolen (by everybody in this entire food chain). The feeding frenzy was so extreme that one of my teachers as SAIS admitted, off the record of course, that he had never seen a weapons system he did not like or which he did not want to purchase. This man, whom I shall not name, was a former director of the US Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. Yes, you read that right. He was in charge of DIS-armament. You can imagine what the folks in charge of armament (no “dis) were thinking…

With the stratospheric rise of corruption, the kind of US general which had to be promoted went from fighting men who remembered Vietnam (where they often lost family members, relatives and friends) to “ass-kissing little chickenshits” like David Petraeus. In less than half a century US generals went from combat men, to managers, to politicians. And it is against this lackluster background that a rather unimpressive personality like General James Mattis can appear, at least to some, like a good candidate for Secretary of Defense.

Bottom line: the US armed forces are fantastically expensive and yet not particularly well-trained, well-equipped or well-commanded. And while they still are much more capable than the many European militaries (which are a joke), they are most definitely not the kind of armed forces needed to impose and maintain a world hegemony. The good news for the US is that the US armed forces are more than adequate to defend the US against any hypothetical attack. But as the backbone of the Empire – they are close to useless.

I could list many more types of suicides including an economic suicide, a social suicide, an educational suicide, a cultural suicide and, of course, a moral suicide. But others have already done that elsewhere, and much better than I could ever do myself. So all I will add here is one form of suicide which I believe the AngloZionist Empire has in common with the EU: a “Suicide by reality denial”: this is the mother and father of all the other forms of suicide – the stubborn refusal to look at reality and accept the fact that “the party is over”.

When I see the grim determination of US politicians (very much including the people supporting Trump) to continue to pretend as if the US hegemony was here to stay forever, when I see how they see themselves as the leaders of the world and how they sincerely believe that they need to get involved in every conflict on the planet, I can only come to the conclusion that the inevitable collapse will be painful. To be fair, Trump himself clearly has moments of lucidity about this, for example when he recently declared to Congress

Free nations are the best vehicle for expressing the will of the people — and America respects the right of all nations to chart their own path. My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America. But we know that America is better off, when there is less conflict — not more.

These are remarkable words for which Trump truly deserves a standing ovation as they are the closest thing to a formal admission that the United States have given up on the dream of being the World Hegemon and that from now on the US President will no longer represent the interest of trans-national plutocracies but he will represent the interests of the American people. This sort of languge is nothing short of revolutionary, whether Trump truly delivers on that or not. Unlike everybody else, Trump does not appear to suffer from “suicide by reality denial” syndrome, but when I look at the people around him (nevermind the prostitutes in Congress) I wonder if he will ever get to act on his personal instincts.

Trump is clearly the best man in the Trump administration, he seems to have his heart in the right place and, unlike Hillary, he is clearly aware of the fact that the US armed forces are in a terrible shape. But a good heart and common sense are not enough to deal with the Neocons and the US deep state. You also need an iron will and a total determination to crush the opposition.

Alas, so far Trump has failed to show either quality.

Instead, Trump is trying to show how “tough” a guy he is by declaring that he will wipe out Daesh and by giving the Pentagon 30 days to come up with a plan to do this. Alas (for Trump), there is no way to crush Daesh without working with those who already have boots on the ground: the Iranians, the Russians and the Syrians. It is really that simple. And every American general knows that. Yet everybody is merrily plowing ahead is if there was some kind of possibility for the US to crush Daesh without establishing a partnership with Russia, Iran and Syria first (Erdogan tried that. It did him no good. Now he is working with Russia and Iran). Will the good folks at the Pentagon find the courage to tell Trump that “no, Mr President, we cannot do that alone, we need the Russians, the Iranians and the Syrians”? I very much doubt it. So, yet again, we are probably going to see a case of reality denial, maybe not a suicidal one, but a significant one nonetheless. Not good.

Who will be the Empire’s kaishakunin?

Alexander Solzhenitsyn used to say that all states can be placed on a continuum which ranges from states whose authority is based on their power to states whose power is based on their authority. I think that we can agree that the authority of the US is pretty close to zero. As for their power, it is still very substantial, but not sufficient to maintain the Empire. It is, however, more than adequate to protect the interests of the United States as a country provided the United States accept that they simply don’t have the means to remain a world hegemon.

If the Neocons succeed in their attempt to overthrow or, failing that, at paralysing Trump, then the Empire will have the choice between an endless horror or a horrible end. Since the Neocons don’t really need a war with North Korea, which they don’t like, but which does not elicit the kind of blind hatred Iran does, my guess is that Iran will be their number one target. Should the AngloZionists succeed in triggering a war between Iran and the Empire, then Iran will end up being the Empire’s kaishakunin.

If the crazies fail in their manic attempts at triggering a major war, then the Empire will probably collapse under the pressure of the internal contradictions of the US society.

Finally, if Trump and the American patriots who do not want to sacrifice their country for the sake of the Empire succeed in “draining the DC swamp” and finally crack-down hard on the Neocons, then a gradual transition from Empire to major power is still possible.

But the clock is running out fast . . .

30 thoughts on “The Empire Should be Placed on Suicide Watch

  1. Isolationism has always been the best posture for America – but has always been opposed by its own, self-serving politicos. The Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are formidable barriers to aggression by assault from ANY of the powers mentioned by Mr. Saker, providing a logistics nightmare for powers who might entertain such foolish notions. (North Korea can’t even feed its people at home – much less maintain and mobilize a million-count army!)
    America’s undoing WILL be of its own design. The Saker is spot-on about that. As long as we encourage unbridled perversions and multi-cultural aspirations, we will decline from the once-strong position acquired by our White, Anglo-European ancestors. Our president knows this – but his and America’s weakness is in not admitting it.

  2. Good comment, Gilbert.
    The Jews, and those who think jewishly, are responsible for the mess in which America now finds itself. It’s basically the entire Anglo-Saxon and European world. Woodrow Wilson and later on FDR have a lot to answer for. They were the first 2 coffin nails of the US! Just as Churchill was Britain’s!

  3. The mainstream media, controlled by the Jewish supremacists, will trash talk Trump no matter what he does. Even though his policies are pro-Israel, they will never support him due to his common sense policies on immigration, both legal and illegal. They are the ultimate hypocrites as they reject immigration into their beloved country.

    That’s why, in my opinion, Trump should have come down hard against both parties from day one, instead of putting brain dead Trump-haters like Nikki Haley in as ambassador to the UN. He should have gone to Moscow in his first month to have a sit down with Putin to work on all these US created problems. I’m afraid that he backed off because he wanted to show he wasn’t in bed with the Russians. But where did that get him? A strongman is supposed to be strong. Putin is. So far Trump is a fake.

    1. Yes, Folly. People like myself supported Trump for the “strong-man” appearance. His appointment of Nikki Haley cast doubts on my assessment. Every day, he backs down a little more – but offers enough of a glimmer of hope to merit our continued good will, for lack of a better choice. The pickings are slim! 🙁
      As a plus in his favor, though, I am encouraged by his choice of Gorsuch for SCOTUS – which may be the most important move of his term. 🙂

    2. “Putin is a strongman, Trump is a fake” …
      I think that these are just words and they give the reality a wide berth.

      If you are tagged by a highway patrol radar and you are riding some Italian exotic bike, you might feel confident enough to gun it and evade capture rather than face a huge fine and a bunch of nasty demerit points.
      If you, in the same situation are driving a family station wagon, you may well figure that the best is to pull over and rely on fast talking your way out.
      In the first instance, you can call yourself a macho strongman and in the other, a wuss.
      And it will be the same you, won’t it.

      And so it is with Putin and Trump.

      Putin was brought into power by FSB engineered stealth campaign, he had the talented, loyal, patriotic professionals and military men, the cabal that secretly elected him for the job, and even so, he had to bide his time, talking deferentially to oligarch jews, domestic and foreign, not as if it makes any difference, all jews are foreign to us and domestic amongst themselves.
      And then, as his power consolidated, the bear engine got rolling gradually and now it is preeminent.
      Russia will not lose a war, whether to the USA, NATO or Rothschild global cobra.
      It has already won on every battlefield it entered, strong and confident, no need for chest thumping antics of the sore and frightened losers.

      Trump?
      C’mon, where is the comparison.
      His own deep state apparatus, the very same ones that ensured Putin’s victory are undermining every Trump’s move, hell, he can’t even trust his security detail, the Secret Service, much less the federal crime control, the FBI, the rest, CIA and NSA are in open insurrection and the Jew machine is chasing him all over the place to steamroll him flat with the most egregious pack of lies, worse even than what Germany had to endure at the end of WW2, as if Hitler had to defend himself on the political and legal front after his army got defeated or the Gestapo turned against him.

      There is only one thing that you should be asking yourself and if you asked and answered during the presidential election campaign last summer, then that answer should stand.
      Is Trump real or fake, does he have the American welfare at heart or just pretending while striving to deliver America to jew on the platter even better than Hillary would have done,

      because, in a very clear demonstration of Occam’s Razor, if Jew has full control of both candidates, then he will ensure that the one better for the Jew and worse for the Gentiles will emerge to run the show until 2020.
      In which case, you must be convinced that trump is WORSE than Hillary and always was and you knew that 6 months ago at least.

      Me, I have real trouble with that statement and believe that he means well but due to battlefield constraints must deceive, wear camouflage and beat tactical retreat while just trying to survive and develop an effective guerilla blueprint for winning, like the Castro, Che Guevara band did in the Cuban jungles and sugar cane fields in 1950s.
      That war took years and the Cuban people didn’t call Castro a fake because he didn’t deliver instant relief while the Jew-owned shabbo Batista was killing, jailing and torturing locals suspected of revolutionary sympathies.

      Try looking at it through this prism for some understanding.

      1. Lobro –

        I came in for lunch and read this, and I am surprised you forgot Afghanistan when praising Russia’s valor. (If you remember, they didn’t WIN that one – which was right next door!)
        Russia, in reality, is certainly no threat to Uncle Sam. Oceans divide us, and our Navy is strong and vigilant. In fact, NO ONE is any real threat compared to ourselves. We are our own worst enemies. We need a real house-cleaning. Drain the swamp!!!

      2. Gilbert, I am not “praising Russian valor”.
        I am saying that since Putin came to power, they go into any conflict with a clear strategy and project management in place, when to start, what to do, when to wind it down.
        Americans are clueless because they cannot read their masters’ hebrew script or the masters don’t want them to.
        Afghanistan is presented quite well in this Counterpunch article but I have no interest in it nor does Putin’s Russia.
        Remember too, that when the Soviets were there, America (Brzezinski’s evil genius) fought them by proxy, pouring in billions in arms and training of foreign mercenaries led by osama bin Laden to fight the Soviets.
        Moreover and few realize this due to the same lying media that soaked people’s brains in formaldehyde, that after the Soviets pulled out, the Afghan puppet government they left in power survived for full three years before Taliban brought it down.
        Think about how long the Kharzai government would last if the Americans (NATO) left, maybe 2 weeks?

        Anyway, as I said, the comparison is irrelevant.
        You are talking about the USSR dinosaur, I am talking about Putin’s game, day and night.

        another little item, by way of India news which should be a fairly neutral observer:
        Why the US bought Russian helicopters for Afghanistan – and then dumped the deal

        26 November 2013 Rakesh Krishnan Simha
        The US military’s decision to order 63 Mi-17 helicopters for Afghanistan was a tacit admission that when it comes to the crunch Russian weapons deliver. With politics killing the $1 billion deal, all bets are off the Afghan National Army defeating the Taliban.
        [further on]
        But that deal now stands cancelled because of pressure from an unlikely alliance of right wing politicians and left wing human rights groups, which argue that the Russian firm, Rosoboronexport, which supplies the Mi-17, is also dispatching weapons to Syria. This alliance is not only running interference for terrorist groups in Syria, but by scuttling the helicopter deal it may have signed the Hamid Karzai regime’s death warrant.

        Why the Afghans want them

        Twenty-five years after the Soviet Army left the country, Russian helicopters are remembered – fondly or fearfully, depending on which side they were fighting for – by the Afghans. Russian helicopters had routed the US-Saudi Arabia-UK-Pakistan-China backed mujahideen before the arrival of the US-made Stinger surface-to-air missiles restored the balance.

        Learning from their combat experiences in Afghanistan, the Russians had improved their helicopters to survive in that brutal war. According to Harmer, the Russians “know how to make their equipment robust”.

        but try telling this to Pat whose dogma holds that Russians procure all their hardware from Israel, without which they would be fighting with rocks and vodka bottles.
        Refusal to pay attention to facts only hurts the believer in the long, wrong run.

        As long as America is remotely operated by the Jew like a Pavlov dog, how can you expect them to win anything?
        This is the starting truth and the biggest stumbling block, no jumping that shark.

      3. Lobro –

        You wrote about ME:
        “but try telling this to Pat whose dogma holds that Russians procure all their hardware from Israel,”

        I never said “ALL”…. maybe 95% 🙂 You make things up about me so often. Then lace it with ‘sillies’ like “vodka bottles”.. 🙂

        Here’s a few without any ‘sillies’ for ya.

        Putin guarantees PENSIONS for RUSSIAN JEWS in ISRAEL..!!! That helps fund Israel’s banks with $$$…

        Putin loves Pharisee-Jew Bankers…
        …….despite your guesses otherwise.. 🙂 🙂

        Refusal to pay attention to facts only hurts the believer in the long – WRONG – run.

      4. Lobro

        What a treat it is to watch the mastery of a group like the FSB playin “3rd dimensional” chess while those opposing them can barely play a game of tiddlywinks let alone checkers. Just imagine if Trump had the level of loyalty even a POTUS like NIXON had, let alone Putin.

        But you wanna hear a mere hint of something about the “deeper” state that’s got us all flummoxed? Suffice it to say that there are elements working in Trump’s behalf whose cover is impenetrable, and nobody would believe where it originates anyway because it’s just too preposterous to fathom…for most, that is.

    WHEW..!!! 🙂

    “If the crazies fail in their manic attempts at triggering a major war, then the Empire will probably collapse under the pressure of the internal contradictions of the US society.”

    I claim… the Empire is – “PROBABLY” – just fine with making $$$ building Russia’s military and industrial vehicles and hardware for them through Israel, operating the US military and industrial sales platform available to Putin, WHILE… fine-dining with Netanyahu.

    ‘Cash-Poor-Putin’ BARTERS oil, gas and TITANIUM for his planes and vehicles made by other countries.

    Russia cannot do it….. SO…. Putin hosts TRADE SHOWS to gather builders and traders to Russia from Israel, France, Italy and US… NATO Biz Boyz…

    Airbus Extends TITANIUM Partnership With Russia’s VSMPO-Avisma

    Airbus and Russian titanium group VSMPO-Avisma have extended their 20-year partnership with the signing of a new memorandum of understanding on the first day of the Maks AIRSHOW in Moscow. The August 27 agreement calls for an extended collaboration covering the development, processing and recycling of titanium for all Airbus airliners.

    The partners have set up a joint working group to focus on the development of new alloys and improve manufacturing processes.

    ……………

    Russia is the BEST FAKE ENEMY for the Pentagon $$$$$..!!

    It is Putin who is more likely on “suicide watch” since he cannot build his own military weapons after all these years he has tried…. And FAILED..!! 🙂

    1. Pat – silly boy –

      if Russia doesn’t get stuff from European countries – it can always get it from China and even manufacture them on their own – its simple division of labour…

      1. Sal –

        Yes, Putin is a silly boy…. Getting very wealthy as a GLOBAL ENTERTAINER…. He plays the “silly” VILLAIN and good guy at the same time… 🙂

        Putin cannot make his own machinery. He has no money to pay his people.. He has to barter with other countries for payments.

        Putin cannot pay for much “division of labor” since his people do not need all that oil and gas to eat.. 🙂

        US and Israeli companies already set up “division of labor” shops…. Which Putin cannot afford to pay to do.

        Lack of pay led to this FAILURE a few months ago:

        One of Russia’s Most Advanced Nuclear Missiles Self-Destructed During a Test Flight
        September 28, 2016

        Russia’s R-30 Bulava submarine launched ballistic missile (SLBM) continues to be plagued with problems as a recent test failure shows.

        The problem with the Bulava missile is not the weapon’s design—which is sound, THE ISSUE IS PRODUCTION..Russia failed to produce quality SLBMs consistently.

        “The Bulava’s problem is production quality,” said Mike Kofman, a research scientist at the Center for Naval Analyses specializing in Russian military affairs.

        “There are issues with serial production in Russia’s DEFENSE industry.”

        “You can ask the SAME question about Russia’s SPACE LIFT industry— component QUALITY/CONSISTENCY issues.”

    2. NEVER FEAR….. Putin needs CASH $$$$… To pay his workers.. who won’t take oil and gas as a salary…!!
      CASH galore………. like he can get with a Russian Vegas..!! 🙂

      Putin needs foreigners… including rich AMERICANS.

      Crimea promises ‘Las Vegas on the Black Sea’ to attract TOURISTS..!!

      SIMFEROPOL, March 20. /TASS/. The gambling zone due to be created on the Crimean peninsula close to the resort city of Yalta will trigger interest among foreign tourists, Crimea’s head Sergey Aksyonov, told TASS.

      “The gambling zone will be meant for guests mostly. Including foreign visitors,” Aksyonov said.

      http://tass.com/economy/936427

      WARS DON’T ATTRACT TOURISTS with BIG $$$$…!!! 🙂 🙂

  5. If Russia is such a weak country, then how come the Germans at the height of their Military strength, Nazi Germany, couldn’t defeat weakling Russia?

    1. Primarily, the weather defeated Germany – and the impossible logistics of supporting an army for the long campaign. Oceans would be even MORE difficult.

  6. The drums for a foreign war are quite real. Make no mistake, the enemy parasite is scared. Foreign War has always been the last strategy they still have. Common enemy or way to draw off men to die somewhere else, the alien is finally sweating. Now that it is seen, it must relieve the pressure it feels. Invaders, foreign wars, and meaningless fake issues are all it has to use.
    This could be over quick if White Men rise up as a mass Tomorrow. A week to ten days and the aliens would have broken and run and the mop up of invaders could begin. Trump is just buying time. Time is NOT on (((their))) side.

  7. I was wondering if you ever do special requests?
    Recently I received this irritating email which has been ‘doing the rounds’ [again] which contains so many outright lies and utter rubbish!
    In particular the latter part of the email where it claims no jew ever destroyed a church, that jews were not involved in slave trading, and
    of course, that old chestnut, ‘The Holohoax’.
    I would love it if one of your erudite contributors could do a piece or article on this with sources for the idiot who sent it to me to check out
    for himself. I’d reply to his email and his contacts to try and counteract the damage that his nonsense attempts to distribute.
    Thanks. Love your work. Keep it up.
    Regards to all

    The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing childrenin military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims. The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants.

    There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed achurch.

    There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people.

    The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

    Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems. Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for humankind’ before they demand that humankind respects them.

    Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel’s part, the following two sentences really say it all:’If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel’ Benjamin Netanyahu

    General Eisenhower Warned Us :
    It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

    He did this because he said in words to this effect:

    ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened’

    Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

    It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated’ while the German people looked the other way.

    Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

    This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people.

    Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.
    How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States?

    Do not just delete this message; it will take only a minute to pass this along.

    1. nb: jews OWN nobel selection process.
      obama, who prosecuted more wars than any US president before him, got the Peace prize, but in jewspeak war is peace so it makes sense.

      Nikola Tesla never received the physics prize, i guess he wasn’t as smart as jews.
      nb (2): didn’t like them either: Never Trust A Jew (from as jew site)

      maybe the petition writer could reflect on what tangible benefits accrued to the world from all these millions of jew nobel geniuses (okay, maybe hertz deserves it) and compare it to Tesla’s legacy (tip of the iceberg, much of it still in archives and lots stolen by the US government for military and research purposes).

      and that is just one example.
      on the “good” side of the jew ledger: sweet f**k all.
      shall we look at the bad side …

  8. Casinos raking in USD will help keep Putin off “Suicide Watch”.. !! 🙂

    Aksyonov noted that the Crimean authorities are ready to offer investors certain ‘game plan’ strategies that will make it possible to bypass sanctions in implementing this project. “There are certain arrangements that will make it possible to bypass the sanctions. I will keep quiet about such secrets for now. Nobody would agree to invest in this project, if there were doubts this plan might not work,” he stated.

    The Crimean leader added that construction and assembly work in Yalta’s Zhemchuzhina health resort will begin later this year.

    On July 23, 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on establishing a gambling zone in Crimea. It should appear on the Black Sea peninsula by 2019.

    Aksyonov said earlier that a large Russian company is ready to invest about 8 bln rubles ($138 mln) in the creation of Crimea’s gambling zone.

    According to expert estimates, the regional budget will be able to receive up to 25 mln rubles per year from the would-be gaming industry. In June 2016, the Crimean government defined the boundaries of the future zone, placing it in the locality of Gaspra.

  9. This is why President Trump seems to be looking for new allies who will enable him to impose the changes he wants.
    He is currently organising a meeting with President Xi Jinping during which he would be able to plan the membership of his country in the Chinese Investment Bank. He would therefore be placing his allies before the fait accompli – if the United States participate in the construction of the Silk Roads, it would become impossible for the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Germany and France to continue the jihad in Iraq, Syria and Ukraine.

    http://www.voltairenet.org/article195697.html

    If true, Trump has given up on Empire. Let us wish him well.

  10. Is the U.S. going to commit ritual suicide? Yes, that is exactly what is happening every single time a new baby is born in an American hospital where vials of poisons are ready to be injected into muscles, into a closed system where poisons go in and yet have no way of being eliminated.

    Yes, I would consider our American school system a form of ritual suicide because why would we have such a dumbed down curriculum if we didn’t want to have a dumbed down population. Why do we say that everything that is written by a dead white man should automatically be eliminated from the subjects taught at universities. Isn’t this a promotion of Illiteracy on a mass scale. Hallmark cards 101, anyone? The university system in the U.S. is on suicide watch.

    Let’s make women who bear children bear the responsibility of the economy as well so corporations have cheap labor. What happened to the men in the society? Well if they are White they need to be systematically eliminated. If they are Black they have already been systematically eliminated. If they are immigrants they can wash floors, and cut lawns–that’s what those guys are good for. No, it’s up to the women to carry the load, and let’s make it extra hard by making sure their kids are really, really sick all the time.

    The Empire wants the U.S. to commit suicide and so those perverts in the think tanks can maintain the only viable part of the economy and keep getting rich–drugs, sex slavery, and organ trafficking.

    And YES.. what I understand is the U.S. military is just pure junk on wheels with a bunch of overpaid generals sitting on their fat behinds. We had better not go to war with anyone, and we’re so blanking lucky that that no one really has wanted to go to war. Trump is in trouble, so much trouble, but lies erode over time, and with the fullness of time maybe we’ll maybe have a country left to live in.

  11. I should say that we have gone to war with small countries that we can pick off, but I’m referring to the big ones discussed in this article–super good article—like China, Russia, North Korea, or Iran. Anyway, I do think that the neocons and the Jewish media like the New York Times have this Russia thing, but mainly they are trying to put maximum pressure on Trump so that he will break. He might. But I’m astonished at how many people I personally know who think that Trump is in a Russian agent. These supposedly intellectually advanced people (they think of themselves as in the very bright range) believe without evidence that Trump in a matter of months is going to be in jail for treason. So, while it might be a game with the perpetuators of these myths to undermine the government and its supporters; in the meantime the New York Times readers believe one hundred percent that Trump is about to put on the orange jump suit. Unbelievable… more evidence for the utter demise of our intellectual class.
