Bypassing NATO - Vox Popoli

 Retired general and former CIA Director David Petraeus suggests a Coalition of the Suicidally Stupid could attack Russia to get around NATO’s limitations. In winter, no less.

On Saturday in an interview with L’Express from France, David Petraeus stated a “multinational force” led by the US may intervene in Ukraine.

“We are talking about the intervention of the North Atlantic Alliance in the event of an attack on one of the NATO members. But it is necessary to consider the option of using not NATO forces in Ukraine, but multinational forces that have nothing to do with NATO,” Petraeus said. “This is a different situation. There is no need to draw red lines in terms of an attack on any NATO country in order to talk about the operation of the 5th article of the charter. You can also respond to challenges as a multinational force led by the United States,” he added.

David Petraeus was the former general of the American army, commander of the International Assistance and Security Force in Afghanistan between 2010 and 2011 and director of the CIA from 2011 to 2012.

Translation: The European countries in NATO know better than to get into a shooting war with Russia that will almost certainly result in their eventual occupation by Russian forces. So the neocons are casting about for other ways to make use of the US military in their revenge war against Russia while they still have the necessary influence over it.

Furthermore, given all of the trial balloons being floated about Russia’s evil intentions, it’s pretty obvious that a false flag, most likely one involving a crude form of nuclear technology like a so-called “dirty bomb”, is going to be executed in the near future in order to try to whip up public support for a war against Russia in the USA.

It’s probably too much to hope that Americans won’t fall for it this time, especially in light of their reaction to the mass vaccination campaign.
