I reckon the US and Europe have so far utterly failed to understand anything about this war and indeed anything at all about Russia. |
-They even had a preview presented to them in Syria of what Russia was capable of with a very small input. Yet it failed to educate them: they preferred as here to focus on winning an information war and on manufacturing fantasies rather than adapting to the factual.
The Europeans are just well... simply in thrall to the US and incapable of independent thought. The Brits are worse: ruled by aristocrats who live in a emotionally retarded fantasy world of Eton and Empire and as I've pointed out before are desperate for war with Russia merely to prove they have some world relevance (which they don't) with Defence Secretary Michael Fallon entirely unprovoked telling us all the plan: Britain '...would be ready for war against Russia in two years.'
-That was six years ago: with such fools on the loose no wonder Russia tooled up.
As to the rest on that "multi-polar moment", the Germans are militarising with an eye to being a future player, ("Visit Germany before Germany visits you" as we boys used to say... )but brown coal won't do it...the French maybe show the most signs of an Independent mind but apart from anything else like fuel and gas France is due a crippling energy crisis from its further dependence on aging nuclear plants: many ready to croak: I wouldn't be surprised if one blows shortly.
Economically the truth is they all need Russia. So do they want to do trade deals for the energy or fight for it?
Apparently its not the former: but if it's the latter then we all die.
There has never been a clearer illustration that European/ UK politics is a nursery: one actually run by children who have no idea what they are doing.
-Minds must change. People must change. We must change them, yet the "We" that is us is just as much in thrall to all the bullshit. Witness all those Ukrainian flags on the Twitter accounts of people you once considered reflective.
