Did you know that Putin has 30 billion dollars stashed somewhere that he pulls out whenever he needs it? I just found out because Obama was going after it to deprive Putin of such flexibility. Is there no one who is not wrapped up in the international khazar bankers agenda? you read and decide.
FUNDRAISER CALL FOR HELP! Sorry, since I have enough energy to do only one blog per evening, which is 2 down from my normal, but I am working toward getting well, so I can get back to my jewelry making and that takes time and energy, but the bills still continue and now I need help. So, if you can afford it, please donate off to the right at the pay pal button and help us make our $350 deficit for May 2016, along with our cancer cure medicine. Thank you and God Bless you for all your support and caring.
NATO Buildup on Russia’s Borders: Mobilization for War or Just Business?
By Jim W. Dean, Editor, Veterans Today
The extraordinary US-NATO build-up of military forces — on land, sea, and air — on and very near Russia’s borders, or the opening of “NATO’s Eastern Front”, as Professor of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University Stephen F. Cohen refers to it, had no precedent during the preceding 40-years of Cold War.
This, the professor explained, is already beyond the Cold War, where nobody dies, this is already a “pre-war” stage, and what we are witnessing is a mobilization to war.
The world has not witnessed a development like this, “certainly not in any proximity,” since the Cuban crisis with the Soviet Union during the Cold War, Stephen F. Cohen explained.
‘What Aggression by Putin Warranted this New Escalation?’When military experts ask for the reasons behind such a huge assembly of forces, they hear one and the same answer, one which is being echoed at the highest levels. And the person who formulated the plan is the US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter.
“Putin’s “aggression”! What “aggression” by Putin warranted this new escalation?” he questions.
But it isn’t true, he replies. This is just warmongering propaganda that has no evidence to support it.
The US and NATO are escalating on Russia’s borders in a way that never happened during the Cold War, but, and it is true, Russia is escalating back, he said.
It is also building up militarily on its side.
“We call that aggression. But I would argue that they are reacting!!” Professor Cohen said.
‘How Much of That is a Sincere Anxiety About our Security?’
Is Russia really a threat? The professor wondered. How much of this is just ideology? he added.
When a country joins NATO, the professor explained, it is militarily has to be brought up to NATO’s standards.
Most of the NATO equipment is US-made. The new member states become a consumer for the American defense industries, which have done very well as a result of NATO expansion.
Some people have already suggested that this NATO expansion has been about money the whole time — it has been driven by the American military industrial complex. Is there a better way to build up your revenue than to capture a market and make it obligatory to purchase only one product.
Lots of countries make military equipment, Cohen explained. There is some NATO equipment that is not American-made. But it is all derived from American designs.
It is an enormous market, he added.
