Schools and Universities are Liberals’ Trojan Horse for New World Order Indoctrination - ROBERT BRIDGE

A question to all parents: How is your - “We the little people just want to raise our families and be left alone by our ever-expanding draconian government.” – working out so far, considering the fact that they have established control by default? Whose default? Ours!
In fact – – they couldn’t have done it without us defaulting!
From NFL players ‘taking a knee’ during the national anthem, to preschoolers being brainwashed with the ideology of transgenderism, these left-leaning movements have one goal in mind, and that is to undermine and destroy the foundation of the Western nation state.
This month, the Liberal propaganda machine shifted into overdrive, publicizing yet another divisive scandal to forward their agenda of creating a New World Order.
Atlanta school Principal Lara Zelski clearly did not have her local community in mind when she informed parents and faculty that the morning recital of the pledge of allegiance would be eliminated, substituted with a pledge to "school family, community, country and our global society.”
"Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge,” Zelski said. “There are many emotions around this and we want everyone in our school family to start their day in a positive manner."
Zelski never reveals any numbers to support what she means by “more and more of our community” who are purportedly snubbing the flag. This is how the proponents of a “global society” move forward with their destructive agenda. Using the Hegelian dialectic, they press some hot-button ‘issue’ – same-sex marriage, unisexual bathrooms, transsexual rights, Civil War statues in the public square, marijuana use, you name it – that is guaranteed to pit America’s two primary political ideologies fiercely against each other. Then they sit back and watch the fireworks display of their creation.
“Leftists must stay up nights thinking of ways to defame, attack, intimidate and bully the rest of us with their endlessly long lists of angry demands,” wrote Carol S. Benson, in a letter to the editor that perfectly summed up the frustration being felt by average Americans as the PC goon squads gradually take control. “We the little people just want to raise our families and be left alone by our ever-expanding draconian government.”
Although Zelski was forced to reverse course on her decision following severe criticism from parents and staff, the seeds of discontent, planted in the soil of febrile emotions, have already taken root in the public mind. Now, it will be the easy task of the compromised mainstream media – whose main function today is that of provocateur as opposed to purveyor of news and information – to sensationalize the issue, fanning the flames of this artificial crisis. Indeed, judging by the backlash, the actual number of students who refused to honor the flag every morning at this Atlanta school was negligible to none. Once the media imposes its false narrative on the public, however, it is then child’s play to keep the ball on the non-story moving forward.
Students in the United States have been proudly reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, hand over heart, without incident for decades. But these are radical new days. With the NFL ‘take a knee’ movement, first popularized by former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a sign of protest against police brutality, the game has changed. Popularized by a celebrity athlete, it will increasingly be considered ‘cool’ and rebellious for students to snub the national anthem in their taxpayer-supported public schools. And who’s to say how many educators with a hyper-Liberal bent of mind are working behind the scenes, playing games with our children’s minds on sociopolitical issues instead of doing their job, to ensure exactly such an outcome?
For those who believe that such protests – aimed at the very symbol of the country, the American flag – are some sort of grassroots’ movement, think again. After all, what would really motivate an elementary teacher from Atlanta to promote such a vague concept like “global society” as opposed to local and national initiative? Most likely the very same venomous ideology that has underwritten the NFL ‘take a knee’ protest, for example, and the Black Lives Matters campaign. Yes, you guessed it. Although it may sound overly simplistic to point the finger of blame at the billionaire ‘philanthropist’ George Soros every time some divisive issue further fragments the American commons, his name and organization has a strange tendency for being connected to every uprising.
But there are other significant factors at play, as this destructive wave of Cultural Marxism sweeps the nation, threatening to destroy any semblance of what it means to be truly American. The problem, as underscored by the Atlanta teacher’s attempt to ditch the morning salute to the flag, has its roots in the educational system, at all levels.
“People are being taught by ideologues, not by educators,” University of Toronto Psychology professor and author Jordan Peterson told Fox News in an interview. “And ideologues have a very simple way of looking at the world… they reduce it to a few principles like inequality and unfairness and power, those would be the fundamental principles at the moment that are operating on the radical left, and they’re on an ideological campaign.
According to Peterson, most Western institutions of education, at all levels, are “full of people who are radical.”
We have witnessed that radical behavior in full display on so-called liberal college campuses, where Liberal has come to mean ‘if you don’t support my particular worldview, you are a fascist’ and that gives me the right to violently shut down your freedom of speech.
The political battleground in the United States is not to be found on the streets and public squares, but inside of the classrooms, where dangerous ideologues are more concerned with indoctrinating impressionable young minds to their particular worldview, as opposed to creating an atmosphere conducive to the free dissemination of all opinions and ideas, which is exactly what our institutions of higher learning were meant to do.
It’s time to break the Liberal stranglehold on the American mind before the rot goes any further.

US Military Presence in Africa: All Over Continent and Still Expanding - ARKADY SAVITSKY

Around 200,000 US troops are stationed in 177 countries throughout the world. Those forces utilize several hundred military installations. Africa is no exemption. On August 2, Maj. Gen. Roger L. Cloutier took command of US Army Africa, promising to “hit the ground running.”
The US is not waging any wars in Africa but it has a significant presence on the continent. Navy SEALs, Green Berets, and other special ops are currently conducting nearly 100 missions across 20 African countries at any given time, waging secret, limited-scale operations. According to the magazine Vice, US troops are now conducting 3,500 exercises and military engagements throughout Africa per year, an average of 10 per day — an astounding 1,900% increase since the command rolled out 10 years ago. Many activities described as “advise and assist” are actually indistinguishable from combat by any basic definition.
There are currently roughly 7,500 US military personnel, including 1,000 contractors, deployed in Africa. For comparison, that figure was only 6,000 just a year ago. The troops are strung throughout the continent spread across 53 countries. There are 54 countries on the “Dark Continent.” More than 4,000 service members have converged on East Africa. The US troop count in Somalia doubled last year.
When AFRICOM was created there were no plans to establish bases or put boots on the ground. Today, a network of small staging bases or stations have cropped up. According to investigative journalist Nick Turse, “US military bases (including forward operating sites, cooperative security locations, and contingency locations) in Africa number around fifty, at least.” US troops in harm’s way in Algeria, Burundi, Chad, Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan Tunisia, and Uganda qualify for extra pay.
The US African Command (AFRICOM) runs drone surveillance programs, cross-border raids, and intelligence. AFRICOM has claimed responsibility for development, public health, professional and security training, and other humanitarian tasks. Officials from the Departments of State, Homeland Security, Agriculture, Energy, Commerce, and Justice, among other agencies, are involved in AFRICOM activities. Military attachés outnumber diplomats at many embassies across Africa.
Last October, four US soldiers lost their lives in Niger. The vast majority of Americans probably had no idea that the US even had troops participating in combat missions in Africa before the incident took place. One serviceman was reported dead in Somalia in June. The Defense Department is mulling plans to “right-size” special operations missions in Africa and reassign troops to other regions, aligning the efforts with the security priorities defined by the 2018 National Defense Strategy. That document prioritizes great power competition over defeating terrorist groups in remote corners of the globe. Roughly 1,200 special ops troops on missions in Africa are looking at a drawdown. But it has nothing to do with leaving or significantly cutting back. And the right to unilaterally return will be reserved. The infrastructure is being expanded enough to make it capable of accommodating substantial reinforcements. The construction work is in progress. The bases will remain operational and their numbers keep on rising.
A large drone base in Agadez, the largest city in central Niger, is reported to be under construction. The facility will host armed MQ-9 Reaper drones which will finally take flight in 2019. The MQ-9 Reaper has a range of 1,150 miles, allowing it to provide strike support and intelligence-gathering capabilities across West and North Africa from this new base outside of Agadez. It can carry GBU-12 Paveway II bombs. The aircraft features synthetic aperture radar for integrating GBU-38 Joint Direct Attack Munitions. The armament suite can include four Hellfire air-to-ground anti-armor and anti-personnel missiles. There are an estimated 800 US troops on the ground in Niger, along with one drone base and the base in Agadez that is being built. The Hill called it “the largest US Air Force-led construction project of all time.” 
According to Business Insider, “The US military presence here is the second largest in Africa behind the sole permanent US base on the continent, in the tiny Horn of Africa nation of Djibouti.” Four thousand American servicemen are stationed at Camp Lemonnier (the US base located near Djibouti City) — a critical strategic base for the American military because of its port and its proximity to the Middle East.
Officially, the camp is the only US base on the continent or, as AFRICOM calls it, “a forward operating site,” — the others are “cooperative security locations” or “non-enduring contingency locations.” Camp Lemonnier is the hub of a network of American drone bases in Africa that are used for aerial attacks against insurgents in Yemen, Nigeria, and Somalia, as well as for exercising control over the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait. In 2014, the US signed a new 20-year lease on the base with the Djiboutian government, and committed over $1.4 billion to modernize and expand the facility in the years to come.
In March, the US and Ghana signed a military agreement outlining the conditions of the US military presence in that nation, including its construction activities. The news was met with protests inside the country.
It should be noted that the drone attacks that are regularly launched in Africa are in violation of US law. The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), adopted after Sept. 11, 2001, states that the president is authorized to use force against the planners of those attacks and those who harbor them. But that act does not apply to the rebel groups operating in Africa.
It’s hard to believe that the US presence will be really diminished, and there is no way to know, as too many aspects of it are shrouded in secrecy with nothing but “leaks” emerging from time to time. It should be noted that the documents obtained by TomDispatch under the United States Freedom of Information Act contradict AFRICOM's official statements about the scale of US military bases around the world, including 36 AFRICOM bases in 24 African countries that have not been previously disclosed in official reports.
The US foothold in Africa is strong. It’s almost ubiquitous. Some large sites under construction will provide the US with the ability to host large aircraft and accommodate substantial forces and their hardware. This all prompts the still-unanswered question — “Where does the US have troops in Africa, and why?” One thing is certain — while waging an intensive drone war, the US is building a vast military infrastructure for a large-scale ground war on the continent.

Open Letter to President Trump Concerning the Consequences of 11 September 2001 - By Thierry Meyssan

Mister President,
The crimes of 11 September 2001 have never been judged in your country. I am writing to you as a French citizen, the first person to denounce the inconsistencies of the official version and to open the world to the debate and the search for the real perpetrators.
In a criminal court, as the jury, we have to determine whether the suspect presented to us is guilty or not, and eventually, to decide what punishment he should receive. When we suffered the events of 9/11, the Bush Junior administration told us that the guilty party was Al-Qaïda, and the punishment they should receive was the overthrow of those who had helped them – the Afghan Taliban, then the Iraqi régime of Saddam Hussein.
However, there is a weight of evidence which attests to the impossibility of this thesis. If we were members of a jury, we would have to declare objectively that the Taliban and the régime of Saddam Hussein were innocent of this crime. Of course, this alone would not enable us to name the real culprits, and we would thus be frustrated. But we could not conceive of condemning parties innocent of such a crime simply because we have not known how, or not been able, to find the guilty parties.

We all understood that certain senior personalities were lying when the Secretary of State for Justice and Director of the FBI, Robert Mueller, revealed the names of the 19 presumed hijackers, because we already had in front of us the lists disclosed by the airline companies of all of the passengers embarked – lists on which none of the suspects were mentioned.
From there, we became suspicious of the « Continuity of Government », the instance tasked with taking over from the elected authorities if they should be killed during a nuclear confrontation. We advanced the hypothesis that these attacks masked a coup d’état, in conformity with Edward Luttwak’s method of maintaining the appearance of the Executive, but imposing a different policy.
In the days following 9/11, the Bush administration made several decisions:
- the creation of the Office of Homeland Security and the vote for a voluminous anti-terrorist Code which had been drawn up long beforehand, the USA Patriot Act. For affairs which the administration itself qualifies as « terrorist », this text suspends the Bill of Rights which was the glory of your country. It unbalances your institutions. Two centuries later, it validates the triumph of the great landowners who wrote the Constitution, and the defeat of the heroes of the War of Independence who demanded that the Bill of Rights must be added.
- The Secretary for Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, created the Office of Force Transformation, under the command of Admiral Arthur Cebrowski, who immediately presented a programme, conceived a long time earlier, planning for the control of access to the natural resources of the countries of the South. He demanded the destruction of State and social structures in the half of the world which was not yet globalised. Simultaneously, the Director of the CIA launched the « Worldwide Attack Matrix », a package of secret operations in 85 countries where Rumsfeld and Cebrowski intended to destroy the State structures. Considering that only those countries whose economies were globalised would remain stable, and that the others would be destroyed, the men from 9/11 placed US armed forces in the service of transnational financial interests. They betrayed your country and transformed it into the armed wing of these predators.
For the last 17 years, we have witnessed what is being given to your compatriots by the government of the successors of those who drew up the Constitution and opposed at that time – without success – the Bill of Rights. These rich men have become the super-rich, while the middle class has been reduced by a fifth and poverty has increased.
We have also seen the implementation of the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski strategy – phoney « civil wars » have devastated almost all of the Greater Middle East. Entire cities have been wiped from the map, from Afghanistan to Libya, via Saudi Arabia and Turkey, who were not themselves at war.
In 2001, only two US citizens denounced the incoherence of the Bush version, two real estate promoters – the Democrat Jimmy Walter, who was forced into exile, and yourself, who entered into politics and was elected President.
In 2011, we saw the commander of AfriCom relieved of his mission and replaced by NATO for having refused to support Al-Qaïda in the liquidation of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. Then we saw NATO’s LandCom organise Western support for jihadists in general and Al-Qaïda in particular in their attempt to overthrow the Syrian Arab Republic.
So the jihadists, who were considered as « freedom fighters » against the Soviets, then as « terrorists » after 9/11, once again became the allies of the deep state, which, in fact, they have always been. Gift Card i...Buy New $25.00(as of 06:15 EDT - Details)

So, with an immense upsurge of hope, we have watched your actions to suppress, one by one, all support for the jihadists. It is with the same hope that we see today that you are talking with your Russian counterpart in order to bring back life to the devastated Middle East. And it is with equal anxiety that we see Robert Mueller, now a special prosecutor, pursuing the destruction of your homeland by attacking your position.
Mister President, not only are you and your compatriots suffering from the diarchy which has sneaked into power in your country since the coup d’état of 11 September 2001, but the whole world is a victim.
Mister President, 9/11 is not ancient history. It is the triumph of transnational interests which are crushing not only your people, but all of humanity which aspires to freedom.

Hungary Emerging as Protector of Persecuted Christians Around the Globe - Dr. Stephen Turley

Another interesting video from Dr. Stephen Turley.
We came across Turley recently and find him interesting because his basic argument is that there is a worldwide turn to conservative values, traditionalism, and nationalism, in the US, Eastern Europe, the EU, Russia, the Middle East, Africa, South America - in fact, all continents, and that this change is being driven by the loosening of the liberal, globalist grip on information flow due to technology. You can see all his articles on RI here.
Turley is a theology, Greek, and rhetoric teacher in the booming classical education movement, which is predominantly conservative. He is a former Protestant from Connecticut who converted to Orthodoxy.
He hosts a rapidly growing YouTube broadcast about these trends from a conservative viewpoint.
The nation of Hungary has announced its official policy to stand with and protect persecuted Christians around the world.
Breitbart News had an excellent and very informative interview with the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs Peter Szijjarto who outlined the top priorities for Hungarian foreign policy and financial assistance, and you will notice how radically different it sounds from the goals of globalist leaders.

Szijjarto argued that Hungary is first and foremost a Christian nation, and as such, it is going to prioritize helping persecuted Christians around the world. He of course is referencing particularly Middle East Christians who have been the victims of some of the most horrific violence imaginable, especially by ISIS.
By the way, ISIS has been so effectively neutralized, defeated and destroyed I am thankful to say. You know who has been responsible for that defeat and destruction of ISIS? It is the result of a joint effort between Russia and the United States. What do you know? Our media loves to talk about the great things that can happen when these two powers join together in a common purpose …
Szijjarto expressed his frustration with Brussels and the EU in that, whenever he has brought up the special responsibility that Europeans have to persecuted Christians in the Middle East and around the world, Eurocrats just look at him and basically say, Uh, no, we need to show that we are tolerant and that we do not favor any particular religion. Of course, in order to show how tolerant they are, they show favoritism to Muslims. Figure that one out!
Actually, there is a reason for why these Eurocrats show favoritism to Islam over Christianity. What we have to understand is that under globalization, I wish I could say that the problem is ONLY that these Eurocrats consider Islam every bit as valid as Christianity. I wish I could say that was the worst of it.
In one sense, that IS the case, globalists do in fact see Islam and Christianity has equally valid religious belief systems, since globalization by definition sees all religions as equally valid. There is no basis, no standard of evaluation within the rationale of globalization that can differentiate the legitimacy of one religion over against another. They are all equally valid expressions of sovereign individuals. Globalization relativizes all religions to the individual, as a matter of individual choice, and quite literally leaves it at that at least at one level.
However it gets even worse. At another level, globalization breeds political correctness. What globalization basically does is it eclipses localized customs, traditions, languages, and religions with a one-size-fits-all consumer-based value system.
So whereas different localities used to be characterized by different cultural symbols and practices, globalization comes in and starts getting rid of all of the unique identity markers of particular localities and replaces them with highly standardized, mechanized, franchises at both the economic and political levels, so that downtown Tokyo looks almost exactly the same as downtown Manhattan in Times Square; the same stores, same corporations, same fast food restaurants, same movies, and the like. ……………. 
What political correctness begins to do is it begins to view all those historic customs and traditions that globalism is replacing, as outdated, exclusionary, and unnecessarily intolerant.
Our traditions and customs often stand against things that our new consumer-based cultures think are perfectly natural and normal.
You see, political correctness begins to see our historic cultures and customs and traditions as discriminatory and intolerant and unjust; in other words, political correctness does not exclude against the dominant culture simply because a new set of globalizing economic processes has eclipsed it; as far as political correctness is concerned, the dominant culture is being excluded because it is racist, homophobic, bigoted, colonialist, or what have you.
Political correctness therefore takes the opportunity afforded to it by the economic eclipsing processes of globalism to in fact welcome into the public square or into the marketplace cultures, lifestyles, races, genders, sexual orientations, and YES RELIGIONS that are now considered to have been oppressed and disenfranchised by the dominant culture.
This turns into our new sense of justice; it is technically known as emancipatory politics, this notion that it is always good, always, to show favoritism to whatever minority group Western civilization has supposedly persecuted. And of course, in the West, that persecuted minority religiously speaking would be Muslims, certainly not Christians.
And so, in the name of being just in the politically correct sense, our elites are even more concerned with the rights and privileges of Muslims than they are with Christians. Or with immigrants than they are with citizens. Can anyone say Tommy Robinson?
This is what makes nations like Hungary and many others like Poland, Slovakia, nationalist Austria and Italy, and yes, indeed, Russia, so wonderful; in standing up for persecuted Christians in the Middle East, these nations are in fact rejecting this whole notion of political correctness. They are rejecting it out of hand in the name of solidarity and alliance with those who are an integral part of the religious traditions and customs that define our nations and common civilization.
Make no mistake, in standing FOR Christians, Hungary is standing AGAINST globalization and its politically correct redefinition of justice and equity.
Now one last thing here; we have looked at the Hungarian prime-minister Viktor Orban’s vision for a Christian democracy in detail in a past; Orban, in his speeches of late, has argued that Hungary is in the midst of building what he calls a ‘Christian democracy’ as over against the secular globalist vision of the EU; and we outlined four features of what a Christian democracy looks like as derived from Viktor Orban’s speeches.
The first feature was that church and state work together to protect a nation’s customs, culture, and tradition as they are rooted in a distinctively Christian vision of life; so we are not talking about a theocracy here; we are talking about church and state working together.
The second feature is stringent border security that protects the Christianity that is protecting the culture; so as we are seeing here with Hungary’s concern for persecuted minorities, they have actually expedited the ability of Christian refugees to come into Hungary. Hungary is not anti-immigrant per se, it is anti-immigration on globalist terms.
That is what the BBC always likes to leave out in its coverage of Hungary; so you can come into the nation as an immigrant no problem, but you have to affirm the Christian culture and institutions that are central to their national identity; so border security is an essential feature of Christian Democracy.
The third feature is some form of economic nationalism that guards against the narcissistic consumerist values that can undermine a culture from within.
And the fourth feature involves placing a priority on the traditional family as the basis for a flourishing national future. We have seen how Hungary has been able to effectively reverse its population decline with the institution of pro-family measures.
Now we are seeing a fifth feature emerge, and that is what we might call a post-secular international relations feature, where Hungary, as a Christian democracy, will prioritize alliances with and financial aid to nations that share a common commitment to the traditional values, culture, and customs that undergird a distinctively Christian vision of life.
What is interesting here is that international relations, what is often referred to as IR, is a notoriously, absolutely notoriously secular enterprise. Religion is irrelevant in the various schools of international relations. However what we are seeing from the likes of Hungary is the emergence of a distinctively post-secular international relations, where a Christian nation is formally declaring alliance-priorities with other Christian groups around the world, in this case, in terms of protection and advocacy for persecuted Christians.
And so, Hungary just continues to show us what a new conservative age more and more looks like as it stands for nation, custom, and tradition in an increasingly post-secular, post-globalist world.

A Book For Our Time, A Time That Perhaps Has Run Its Course -

American post-WW 2 supremacy, writes Andrei Martyanov in his book, Losing Military Supremacy just published by Clarity Press, has been destroyed by America’s narcissism.
The arrogant hubris of American exceptionalism and the myths that sustain it are subjected to devastating analysis in this long overdue book. Martyanov has no patience with American strategic thinkers, Russian experts, American war myths, and General George S. Patton. No nation has ever assembled a greater collection of ignorant fools than the US and trusted them with the leadership of the country.
The consequence for America of the unreal image of itself in which the ruling elites live is a “very dangerous decline of American cognitive faculties” and “a complete loss of sound reasoning across the whole spectrum of national activities from foreign policy, to economics, to war, to culture.” The hegemony claimed and pursued by neoconservatives, liberal interventionists, and garrulous patriots is inconsistent with the incompetence and delusion of the ruling American elites.
Take something as simple as military power. Without a modern manufacturing and industrial base, a country has no prospects of being a military power. This fact escaped Wall Street, titans of American industry, and political leaders who enabled the offshoring of American manufacturing and industrial jobs to Asia, thereby building China’s might and deindustrializing the United States, an alleged “superpower” that is dependent on Russian rocket engines and titanium for its aircraft production.
It has also escaped the American elites that the sanctions applied to Russia have built up the capability and self-sufficiency of Russia. Washington’s sanctions make Russia more powerful.
Consider education. A modern military requires people capable in physics and advanced math, subjects in which Russians have always led, as US Admiral Hyman Rickover recognized as long ago as 1953. In pre-Putin Russia, Washington’s effort to “Westernize,” that is, to destroy, Russian education did not succeed. But it has succeeded in America, where politically correct demands for equal performance from a diverse student body with different talents and motivations has watered down course content. Everyone has to make the same grade, or heavens forbid, politically incorrect differences exist. In public high schools, standardized testing has produced memorization of the ruling shibboleths in place of ability to reason. Indeed, in the US the term, “public education,” has become an oxymoron. Jobs offshoring has also taken a toll on America’s technological cadre. Most people involved in digital activities in the US are probably people from India on work visas.
When a country’s elites see themselves as above others—remember the applause given to John McCain’s reference to Russia as a gas station pretending to be a country—they tend to dispense with diplomacy and rely instead on threats and coercion, such as the threat delivered to the President of Pakistan by a State Department official, “do as you are told or we will bomb you into the stone age.”
Washington cloaks its intentions in moral terms, presenting itself as a defender of democracy and human rights while it destroys in whole or part seven countries in the 21st century in its pursuit of hegemony culminating in an irresponsible and reckless assault on Russian national interest.
Martyanov finds incomprehensible the massive American military miscalculation that in dealing with Russia America is dealing with an insignificant military power. In fact, it is America that has invested the country’s wealth in a “hollow force,” while Russia has capabilities against which the United States has no defense whatsoever.
In a March 1, 2018, address to the Federal Assembly of Russia, President Vladimir Putin described some of this capability, some of which is currently deployed with the Russian forces that are present in Syria. The crux of the matter is this: Currently deployed Russian weapons make the entire US Navy, all the carrier fleets, everything, totally defenseless and obsolete. Russian superiority in the Syrian arena is so total, so complete, that the US cannot attack Syria without Putin’s permission.
Martyanov mentions the infatuation with “Western civilization” of a stratum of the Russian Elite, an elite created by American and Israeli influence. The question is whether this time Putin will permit, as he has in the past, another American strike against his ally that Russia has enabled to clear from Syrian territory the American organized and equipped forces sent to overthrow Syria.
In the past Putin, influenced perhaps by the American-worshipping Russian neoliberals, permitted Washington’s strikes, strikes that Washington justified by lies that Putin knew were lies.
The question is whether Putin will forever in his pointless desire to appease Washington again permit Washington’s strikes against Russia’s ally. Did he send to the combat arena Russian forces that can annihilate at will all American forces present at zezo cost to Russia to do the required job, or did he send them as a potential threat that he does not intend to exercise, hoping against hope that the Americans in their world of total unreality will realize their impotence and back off?
Bogdasarov says that the only thing that will stop the constant and increasing provocations against Russia is for Russia not only to destroy all incoming US missiles into Syria, but also to destroy every launching platform.
Bogdasarov is correct. Putin has let American gratuitous aggression go too far. It needs to be stopped now, before Putin’s only alternative is surrender of Russia to Washington or nuclear war.
The Russian military will not permit Putin to surrender Russia to Washington.
Nuclear war raises the question whether planet Earth survives.
If Putin backs down again over Syria, the prospects for nuclear war increase dramatically.
The most dangerous enemy that Russia and human life face is not Washington but the Western brainwashed, Western worshipping Atlanticist Integrationists in Russia. These utterly stupid people, unless they are eliminated, will destroy the world.
