EUROPEAN MELTDOWN = NEW EMPIRE FOR…?

While we're watching the sock puppets in the House, Senate, and White House smile unctuous smiles in their costly tailored suits, drawing down salaries most of us would be envious of, and assuring us that what they do is for the good of the shareholders of the Federal Reserve.....woops, I meant to say, for the public good of the American people, in Europe whole countries are dissolving into fiscal chaos...Greece, Italy, Spain. And there is only one country in Europe, when all is said and done, that really stands to benefit, at least according to Peter Oborne of the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph:

European Meltdon and new empire for ...?
I take a certain grim satisfaction in these types of analyses, for I have, readers of my books know, been promoting the hypothesis that there was indeed a postwar Nazi International, an international fascist organization, well-financed, with tentacles and connections into American and Russian intelligence, finance, the corporate world of the West, and with deep penetration into America's black projects, and capable of continuing to conduct its own research into advanced physics concepts and aerodynes. I have also repeatedly bumped into the assertion that Martin Bormann, far from being a Soviet agent as many maintain, was the planner of this postwar organization, and that among its plans were the creation of a European federation that Germany would be able to dominate, not with tanks, diver bombers, and heavy artillery, but with - in a statement attributed to him but which I have never been able to verify - "by elastic political means."

Well, it would appear those elastic political means are upon us, according to Oborne's article. And it is worth pausing to consider what this hypothesis - if true - will mean for the future of a Europe dominated largely from Paris and Berlin. Fiscal integration will inevitably bring about military integration, and for this purpose, the French and German militaries are, bar none, some of the best equipped and trained in the world. A Europe dominated increasingly from Berlin will increasingly take on the look of the German Federal Army, with equipment integration, and an increasingly unified command structure and one that, I suspect, will be either increasingly independent of NATO, or we will see the Germanization of NATO's command structure.

But wait.... that Germanization of Europe's military is already well under way, and has been for some time. The Dutch, Belgian, and Swedish armies have already made Germany's Leopard II tank the mainstay of their armored formations. The Eurofighter is increasingly deployed by European air forces, an aircraft in whose development Messerschmitt-Belkow-Blohm played a major role.

And there is another consequence of Oborne's thesis... If order in southern Europe collapses completely, then inevitably, militaries will be called upon to restore order... Let us remember, that it was post-reunification Germany's unilateral recognition of breakaway Croatia that led ultimately to the crackup of Yugoslavia. Requests for peacekeepers came shortly after that, and of course, long before NATO acted, Germany did, by sending the first contingent of German troops outside the borders of Germany since the Second World War.

Whether all this will happen I do not know. Germany has proven reluctant to engage in foreign adventurism, as witnessed by its flip-flop over Libya. But as Europe's strongest economy and one of Europe's major military powers, it may be a role that, howsoever reluctant the politicians in Berlin may be, will be forced upon it.

  1. If the Germans had played their game pieces right they might have controled Europe for the last 1500 years taking over the Roman Empire lock, stock and barrel minus North Africa and Western Asia rich areas but a political liability best abandoned in the long run though controled indirectly might have been possible.

    1. really warring tribes were going to take over and revive the western Roman Empire in 800 CE?

      also the Roman empire didn’t fall until 1918 CE.

  2. Bormann probably thought ‘bah, some jews were enough to whip the Germans up like that, next time we’ll just throw someone else, the arabs, say, at them and the same thing will happen again’. Might have been planned…

  3. You don’t need a large German military for a ‘Germanization’ of European military forces and doctrine-just heavy influence in technology, leadership and doctrinal structures.

    Remember the Roman military format during the Imperial times? Most soldiers were not born in Italy, but the leadership, doctrine and for quite some time the technology was.

    I think a very good case can be made for a ‘Germanification’ of European military/economic and political systems.

    We just need a major discrediting of Anglo-French military leadership and doctrine and a successful demonstration of German leadership and doctrine to occur for the Germans to work their way in.

    Africa or Central Asia anyone?

    P.S. Do I get a prize for sending this to Joseph and having it turned into a blog?

    A new Mercedez SLR perhaps…..?

  4. The Dutch are no longer using the German Leopard 2 tanks, they sold the last 60 of them…..We only have small armored vehicles left…….Holland is going to fly the jsf f35 in the future…if all goes according to plan….

  5. Much like Caeser’s refusing the crown three times – Germany will “reluctantly” take the lead in European affairs.

    The best plausible deniability money can buy…….

    Reminds one of letters from old Masons……..

  6. Different from main stream to say the least, thank you for presenting a thought provoking view… Time will tell if you are on target.

    1. How much time?
      The clock is ticking…..
      and ‘time’……is running out.

      AND

      THEY are the most aware of it.
      So goes the factious & fractious
      infighting in having to change THE PLAN………..
      tweaking it a bit,
      or………..
      letting it ride (they may think) to the
      “Hope Of The Wicked.”

      The name of a book (still available) written
      about 15 years ago,
      but right on target.
      As appropriate now as is the 1970 book,
      “None Dare Call It Conspiracy.”

      I know you are NOT particularly fond of that word,
      Joseph, but it’s just a legal term, after all.

  7. Even considering the “Nazi International” in the background, I think Oborne’s just an example for the usual media propaganda. Germany’s been doing well throughout the crisis so far, and immediately the ghost of Bismarck is pulled out of the hat – England’s arch enemy during the colonialist era.
    Germany’s been doing well for the simple reason of smart policies. The Labour government, before Merkel, created a legislative framework for subsidizing short time work, so German companies could maintain their labour resources during a period of economic decline and then, when it bounced back, had the full potential available without losing any time – that’s one big factor. The other factor are, as you rightly pointed out, Merkel’s policies of aligment with Russia and China, which is simply economically logical. To top this, Germany’s economy is traditionally diversified whereas UK has been concentrating on services, i.e. financial services for a long time….so I cannot help but diagnose a certain jealousy.
    What this article also doesn’t mention is that even if Germany admittedly benefits from the crises in the southern European countries, the German taxpayer is far from happy to foot the whole bill. Merkel’s CDU and its partner, the Liberals, are at their lowest in the polls, there is massive child poverty in Germany, the communities are short of money and altogether many Germans feel it’s only the banksters that benefit. Frankly, I don’t think this is what an “empire” looks like.
    Additionally, Germany’s just scrapped the draft and considerably downsized the Bundeswehr, so it doesn’t look good for a “Germanization” of the European military. Fortunately!! 🙂

      Totally agree! But when in the history there has been a people’s empire- never. It has been always a elite’s empire. By this bailout the fiscal, banking and more productive high-tech sectors are now controlled by German elite- so in this sense it has been the birth of the German empire.

      In my opinion it has been an orchestrated event because:

      a) As mentioned in this article contrary to any logic PIIGS countries have been holding on to Euro and dropped an option to reinstall devalued national currency. As a result they have taken on the full debt burden instead of full on restart by going default and played off their chance of retaining their industrial base by devaluing their currency and so encouraging exports and positive trade balance. At the beginning of 2000s Argentina was debited county with broken banking system a k a PIIGS countries and it devalued its currency and let things default and IT DID WORK OUT SUPERBLY. This is the way things should be (at least in free economy)- you make wrong investment by loaning money and the borrower goes in bankruptcy the lender should be the one who is punished because of he’s irrational decision. But now the lenders (mainly German, French and Austrian banks) are bailed out.
      Here are few lectures I suggest everybody to listen to see to understand the necessity of short term brought by default in order to gain in long term (both lectures are presented by PhD level economists):

      b) The war and revolutions against Arab countries have been in part a war against Islamic banking. See this please this article : http://en.m4.cn/archives/22711.html. By and large many principles Islamic Banking have very much in common with open system approach J. P. Farrrell so elegantly described in Babylon Banksters book- especially additional credit being backed by productivity. I think the Arab Spring came strangely right time to cut off the PIIGS block from second option to have access to liquidity to keep the government running. So the only option left was to go on the EU bailout package.

      1. Sorry “free economy” almost always means that the powerful and wealthy are free to abuse the vast majority.

        Second, the University of Chicago has produced many economics Phds is the last 50 years all based on lies.

        Third, this “free economy” thing assumes perfect reason and sources of information, just try getting good information on what an electron is, including the ones purportedly running down the wires from the power “generating” plants. You can’t, which again gives the powerful a means of gaming the system. (In the case of Argentina short sellers would be amongst those who gamed the system and abetted the destruction of people.)
