Europe is Being Destroyed by the USA
Europe is a vassal state of the USA, and is being systematically destroyed.
Those of you who follow my blogs about real estate and related political posturings will know my views on NATO, US interference in Europe, and the constant war mongering of the Washington military complex.
It was in that regard that I watched an intriguingly titled presentation by Yanis Varoufakis on Youtube.
Here’s the link if you want to hear the whole speil:
However, there was an interesting set of comments below. One from Cass was especially interesting, and I hope he doesn’t mind if I quote the lot.
One thing is crystal clear, Europe is in big trouble as I keep saying, and the most important thing that needs to be done is to get rid of NATO. It’s a menace. I have repeatedly reminded folks of the three wars that NATO started in Europe over the course of the past 30 years. I’m reminded that I cant count, the number is four.
I’m also reminded that the US has dropped more chemical weapons than all other warmongers combined, and most of those weapons were dropped on women and children.
One of the seminal moments in my life was while I was at Oxford studying when I should have been doing something useful. I attended a meeting of the Oxford Union. The motion was That This House Abhors the Use of Chemical Weapons.
The US sent a hot gospeller from Washington to tell us they were fine fellows for dropping poison on children.
I can still remember phrases from that appalling speech. “What you’ve got to remember is that we’re bringing democracy to those people.”
I remember waking up that night back home. I couldn’t get the image out of my brain of a poor young girl running down the road, screaming with pain. I even got out of bed and peered out my window, up the road. I was panicking. Suppose the Americans come to bring me freedom!
They are trying to do that right now.
Guys, we have a problem. A big, big, huge problem.
But here’s that comment from Cass.
“I spent some time in Berlin in the 1980s - my impression before going was of Germany as an industrial power fully recovered from the war. Two things particularly shocked me. One was the heavy presence of the British and American military with their very extensive and not very clear roles, parading the streets, having their own quarters, rotating as to who was ' in charge" of remaining Nazi prisoners, border checkpoints etc. The other was the Berufsverbot: a ban on communists from public sector jobs including school and university teaching.
What I was not aware of then was how the US had nurtured the very powerful roles of Nazis in the German authorities and in business. The Cold War was hot then behind the scenes, nuclear war was only narrowly escaped, as the west put immense and costly pressure on the USSR of which US missile bases in Germany were a part.
I also learned that the EU was primarily a US product as a buffer against communism in Europe. After the USSR was starved out by military cost pressures and by crashing oil prices through the Saudis, US policy switched to "Disaggregation of Europe" with covert operations, culture war, warmaking and bombing of Eastern Europe by NATO four times. More recently, US involvement in the Cambridge Analytica operation which birthed Brexit.
The current Ukraine War is as much an economic war against Europe (the main current economic rival to the US ) as it is a proxy war against Russia. The collapse of the EU and European governments to US control is reminiscent of the collapse of the USSR in that both were top down collapses of governance in which the people had no real say and that both had been assiduously prepared by the US and its UK side kick both economically in cutting Europe off affordable energy supplies and softening up and shaping of top layers of governments and the EU.
The US is simultaneously waging a trade war grab of European industry and US FDI back to the US. Germany is finished as an industrial power. 3 million people died of deprivation in Russia under the IMF rule in the 1990s, which under US direction inflicted as much deep social damage on Russia as it could devise. The Mafia and worst of the old bureaucracy were put in charge. The US gov. and strategy for global hegemony are clearly stretched now as they are losing support of even clientele governments who can't trust them. But this is only an incipient process. Fundamentally it's a class war of massive scale that is only beginning world wide.”
Not sure what you make of that. I’ve lived in Russia and Eastern Europe off and on for decades. Sounds about right to me. As I say above, Europe is in deep trouble, and needs to break away from the US before it is totally destroyed.
We have now had 110 years of two crippling wars followed by slow strangulation. I’m not sure how much more this continent can handle. This decline can be stopped, but the continent is close to collapse.
