IN THE WAKE OF PARIS ATTACKS, FRANCE REASSESSING IT’S ...

In the wake of the Paris attacks there's some heavy moves taking place, moves which perhaps signal a re-alignment of France with Russia, according to these two important articles shared with me this past  week from readers of this site:

Hollande to tell Obama Europe can’t wait for US war of attrition with ISIS to succeed – report

German Economic News Infers France Will Re-Align with Russia, Abandon U.S.

The bottom line here is thet France is now singing essentially the same tune as Russia, and has added a line of lyrics all its own. The "same tune" is that which Mr. Putin's intervention in Syria has demonstrated: the American anti-terror effort has been largely ineffective at best, and a sham at worst, ever since the disastrous American invasion of Iraq. Radical groups have been sponsored by the USA and some of its allies, to the destablization of the region and, now, to the growing international threat posed by radical Muslim groups. But France has added its own verse to the song, and that is that France, and Europe, are in literal danger of being swamped by refugees, many of whom have no intention of assmiliating into western culture, but every intention of conquering it and changing it... for the worse. And as the RT article makes clear, it is now the USA which, by insisting on "regime change" in Syria - one of the very reasons it helped arm and train ISIS back in the day that they were just "freedom fighters" - that is blocking international cooperation on what would seem to be a more fundamental problem: the terrorism itself and its state backers.

So let's concentrate on the second article linked about, and point out some things that probably didn't make SeeNoNews(CNN), Faux News, or SeeBS:

U.S. President Barack Obama’s continuing refusal to work together with Vladimir Putin’s offensive in Syria to slaughter all jihadists there, has driven French President Francois Hollande to consider a fundamental re-alignment of France with Russia and away from the U.S. and NATO (the anti-Russian military club of nations). Recent news reporting in German Economic News — a news medium with an uncanny and extraordinary record of subsequently validated insights — is now suggesting that Hollande is, indeed, moving away from the United States, and toward Russia. If they get this one right, too, then that publication, known in its native language as Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, or DWN, will have cemented its leading position as a reporter of global affairs.

On November 17th, they bannered, “Putin Instructs Russian Navy to Treat France as an Ally.” Two days later, on the 19th, they headlined, “France Praises Putin: He Fights Sincerely Against Terrorism,” and reported that France’s “Foreign Minister Fabius praised the Russian president Putin. Francois Hollande meets with Putin.The Senate spokeswoman calls for the end of the sanctions. After the terrorist attacks, the two countries also cooperate militarily.(Emphasis added)

And, consider these  statements toward the end of the article:

"DWN’s report on the 19th says “Angela Merkel limits her support of France in the fight against jihadists to merely platitudes. ‘Our thoughts are always with the victims, with the injured and their families, and we are always working closely with our French friends. … This act of inhumanity targets all of us.’” 

"No one can doubt the tensions that exist between member-nations within the EU, but the possibility that France might go so far as to separate itself from Germany and from the U.S. and join the alliance of Russia, Syria, and Iran, against the international jihadist movement, which is strictly Sunni and is financed mainly by the royal families in Saudi Arabia, Qater, UAE, Bahrain, and Kuwait (and here you have “Al Qaeda’s Bookkeeper Spills the Beans” about that), is virtually unprecented, and of enormous potential significance. Only time will tell whether that possibility will turn into a reality — an actual transformation of the global power-structure."

There are a number of things to note in this article, and that is (1) the de facto cooperation of the French and Russian navies in the wake of the Paris attacks, and (2) the fact that the perception, at least of some French and some French officials, is that Mr. Putin's efforts to combat jihadism are sincere and genuine, while America's are not. One can not ponder this assessment long enough, for perceptions usually, if not always, transcend any high octane speculations - mine or otherwise - that one might advance.

But notice the last two paragraphs referring to the German Economic News website, for they are crucial and, if one permits me to indulge in a bit more high octane speculation, betoken a similar eventual move on Germany's part. There are two things to note: (1) the German Economic News is portraying Merkel's government as weak and platitudinous, and indeed, many Germans are growing very uneasy with the way Merkel has mishandled the refugee crisis, essentially throwing open the borders of Germany with little to no regard for the German national security.

We'll get back to Germany in a moment, but also consider the last cited paragraph, one clearly pointing the finger to the Sunni influence within jihadism, and clearly fingering "the royal families in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, (the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Kuwait" as the principal state actors behind ISIS. Throw in the USA's own covert involvement and you have, if I may borrow the phrase, "an axis of evil" which the USA has hypocritically ignored.

What this is suggesting is what I have speculated about before: those countries are on the long term menu. Why long term? Because an effective strategy to deal with them internationally has yet to be formed, and that will be inclusive of financial strategies, how to minimize the effect of concerted action on energy supplies and prices, and so on. Mr. Hollande and Mr. Putin will doubtless be discussing some of these things after Mr. Hollande's visit to Washington.

So what about Germany? Well, for one thing, note that it is a German website and news analysis source that has said, openly and plainly, what everyone knows, but no one wants to mention: the big, useless White Elephant called Saudi Arabia, squatting in all its barbarbic and mediaeval malediction, in the center of things. But Germany's trade and historical relationship has always lied with two other Muslim powers, one of them an inplacable enemy of Saudi Wahhabism: Iran. Indeed, if one looks closely at German-Iranian trade, this is quite extensive, and includes even nuclear technology(Germany having closed the nuclear fuel cycle decades ago).  The main point to understand is that here, as elsewhere, Germany's economic realities and "the facts on the ground"(as Mr. P.T. said to me recently), lie much more heavily to the East, and in this case, to Iran, than the do to the West(America), and its barbaric and cruel Saudi ally.

It may not be a sudden move on Germany's part (unless Frau Merkel comes to her senses, or her government is replaced by a more German-friendly German government), but it is an inevitability. If Merkel holds on to her coalition, it will take longer, if she does not, there could be a quick realignment. And that in turn could lead to more complications: imagine a sweeping move in western Europe, not only to resolve the refugee problem, but to pin the blame on at least part of where the blame should be pinned: America's disastrous foreign policy in the region since 9/11. This swells into popular movements in western Europe to remove all American bases, a movement to which American must respond by removing its bases, leaving only eastern Europe and, you guessed it, "staunch pro-American" allies like Turkey or Israel, to house them. In this unthinkably grim scenario, the short-sightedness of American pollicy has left it with some of the most unwholesome "friends" one can think of.

So it's high time to rethink things...

See you on the flip side...

    Someone wrote about amazon censoring Jim Fetzer’s new book:
    Nobody Died At Sandy Hook.

    A former Mills police officer who was charged in connection with a shootout hoax & fake bomb attack was found in his home.
    Sounds like someone wouldn’t play ball during a Sandy Hook type false flag – that went way south.

  2. basta you got it. the rest of you too in varying degrees. we’re all arguing over details. different parts of the elephant. aridzonan’s points are spot on. especially when viewed in light of gary webb and michael ruppert and a longer list of others.

    those narco-squads all over the world, as drugs become legal, they were expected to do what? yep they’re probably all over the u.s. as well as europe. arguing over which state sponsored which squad seems trifling. ok so france and germany reallign with russia. how’s that change the mix. is that gonna make for any fewer military age males flushing over borders? is that gonna get any fewer merc’s posing as refugees attacking civilians directly and civil rights indirectly?

    and for sure how many here with any dot connecting skills do not see israel, saudi and u.s. as one big dot? the first two dissappear the second the last gets open honest accounting (and cuts off funding). and yeh like oil profiteering hypocritically is a new important thing? who in texas profitted hugely off iraqi oil for years after 91? halliburton (in spite of their’s ceo’s claims of innocence) violated american laws (albeit through their shell at kbr). kurds sold oil as though they were sovereign on and off for decades. how many examples do we need?

    and how much more obvious can it be that these are tips of icebergs? we have an american general in congress in the last couple months openly stating that the u.s. got 5 moderate rebels in syria to fight for the u.s. cause at a cost of only $500mil. almost as good a deal as those iraqi and afghani police trainees who regularly shoot their u.s. trainers. what was that a $34mil gas station in afghanistan last month?

    so Dr Farrell, while it is interesting to see Putin et al do some military acts that look appropriate (only by comparison with the new evil axis) what exact difference will it and does it make who aligns with who here?

    the squirming worm (or more accurately the giant vampire squid) that is mr global is going to come up with crazier propaganda to sound like the white hatted protagonist in all events. anyone seen the videos on msm claiming that the u.s. is now targeting isis oil tankers (using videos fresh off rt of russian bombing runs)? at least the youtube audience is smacking down such lying. wonder who’s left in the msm audience that can see the difference.

    1. aridzonan,
      something else closer to home comes to mind. been to a few gasshaku too. between training and frequent contacts elsewhere, have gotten and get to know quite a few military (current, recent vet and old vet). curious how many gary webb’s are going to come out of this latest generation. most are more aware earlier of being sold out than webb was when he came home. more and more i’m impressed with how many continue weekend hunting trips all over the globe on reserve duty while doing menial (albeit better than nothing) jobs repairing cars, appliances,… and with jade helm and psyops like the waco motorcycle gang “shootout” most of them have got to have gotten the message that folk like oath keepers are simply traps for those who don’t know to keep quieter than pat tillman.
      as ever thank you all,
      zdb

  3. The US’s two closest “allies” are first and foremost Israel (just as Karl Rove was “Bush’s Brain,” so Israel is the US gubmint’s “brain”) and Saudi Arabia. And these two psychopathic ME regimes are in fact partners.

    Everything — literally everything — these two certifiably insane regimes do or inflict on other nations and the US itself is not only tolerated but embraced.

    Western Europe, Japan and all other so-called US allies are simply vassals, lapdogs, satrapies. If they get blowback, tough luck, it’s simply collateral damage.

    At a certain point, the cognitive dissonance had better be dealt with, because hitching your horse to that Satanic caravan will lead you straight to the ninth circle of Jahweh’s house.

  4. AAHHHH,,,,now the penny drops,with France sharing intel with Russia on ISIS they are going to learn who their friends really are. The main problem is WHO is buying all the oil from ISIS which makes them the proxy financier of the whole ISIS operation. Surprise , surprise , surprise if it isn’t a couple of good ol’ boys from Nato that’ve been trading money and weapons for the stolen oil,what a bunch of turkeys(figuratively and literally)So now France must think about how the terrorists came from next door to Nato headquarters and how the brainwashing of these Belgian Morrocans was carried out and by whom. Its like if Osama Ben Laden grew up in Los Angeles it’d be a hard sell to blame Iraq for the trouble he caused. I believe the Oil sales are key(remembering of course the 1 billion dollars worth of humvee’s the American army left for ISIS to take from the Iraqi’s trained and assessed by the pentagon) a set up……ya think?

    1. ISIS is hardly financing itself with oil. Though that’s what the likes of CNN and the New York Times want the world to think.

      1. One and a half million dollars a day buys a lot of bullets and the 500 oil trucks they had running 24-7 made a lot of Turks and Israeli’s rich as well. Watch what happens now that Russia(and perhaps now France) focuses on ISIS’s oil business….wait for the Nato allies who begin screaming for a ceasefire before their trucks are burned as well.

        1. yankee:

          You’re assuming black market goods sell for full price, that’s only true of guns.

          It’s more like a few hundred thousand dollars a week in oil sales.

          You’ve bought exactly the propaganda I noted.

          1. True for both of you. Selling the oil when oil is $40/b would require a steep discount. At least 50% off. So $20/b tops so that Erdogan’s son can sell it in Turkey for $40/b and become a billionaire.

            They were moving 50,000 to 80,000 b/day so even at $10/b they’d be making $15 million a month. They would have minimal expenses and kill anyone who didn’t do their job.

            That all said it is clearly the KSA and other funders who are underwriting huge portions of the operation.

          2. RT doesn’t print western propaganda,the Russians have been monitoring the oil trafficking and its at the black market price they determine the revenue’s from. The western media has ignored (hid) this ISIS income source for four years now and its only from RT’s coverage and proofs that they now sing a different tune trying to cover up western tacit support for ISIS.

      2. They do indeed get mostly state funding, but the black marketoil bidness sure is lucrative for all involved, particularly the Turks, Kurds and Israelis. :-))

          1. Sure they do (not). IDK why you insist on denying that oil is a considerable part of ISIS funding. This is cut and dried; even the US has started to bomb those 10-km-long ISIS tanker convoys — literally the day after Putin’s magically MSM-scrubbed G20 announcement concerning who’s funding ISIS. In fact, the Pentagon spokesman even ‘explained’ that at first they didn’t want to “vaporize” the poor truck drivers, because they had families, yadda yadda, and weren’t really terrorists, but now they are pained to admit that indeed the oil funding is a considerable part of their income stream, so bombs away. (So touching, the Pentagon’s exquisite sensitivity, no?)

            So, considering that, just where are you getting your “convictions” from, pray tell?

          2. basta:

            Because claims of ISIS generating most of its funds via oil sales is a distraction.

            And in fact oil is funding ISIS but from a very different source than captured refinery.

            Then, I’m not denying that ISIS also sells oil on the black market, however that’s not covering what is clearly costing hundreds of millions of dollars.

            It’s much simpler for the US, and France, and Turkey to claim “but they have there own monies from oil”, and it’s a distraction.

          3. Lost,

            Okay, I see where you’re coming from with the oil question, but it’s hardly a distraction. It implicates the Erdogans personally, the Kudish mafia/aka/Barzani and Israel, who pulls Barzani’s strings and buys up vast amounts of ISIS petroleum at — wait for it — wholesale prices.

            Distraction? Or just an uncomfortable subject that certain players would have you believe does not bear too much looking into?

          4. They sell the oil to the Saudi’s as well and are paid well for it. 500 trucks working 24-7 and not getting hit or interfered with for 4 and 0ne half years is a crime against humanity and its the western media and Nato that stand in the dock for this. Contributions not withstanding,prostitution,drug sales,oil sales,human slavery sales(world wide supplier)extortion,murder for hire(you don’t think for a minute someone didn’t pay ISIS for the attack on France? ) wake up and smell the new face of organized crime ,they’re just Muslims this time instead of Catholics. The same leach on society, protected by the same people on top

  5. Connect the dots: ISIS = CIA = private army. France does not want to sign TTIP agreement specifically because of GMO Monsanto. In fact all European countries want to ban GMO. Soros floods Europe with Refugees. France supports a Palestinian state. No TTIP, no GMO. TPP leaked in the last month. Now definitely refuses to sign TTIP. ISIS (CIA) attacks Paris. Hollande says “this is a declaration of war.” Fact is Europe has not been able to do anything about ISIS because it is a private corporate army, including CIA and US corporations. IF they had signed TTIP and attacked ISIS, then according to the documents, corporations can sue them for loss of war and oil profits. Hence the major shift to Russia, NO GMO, NO TTIP! I think Germany and the rest of Europe will soon follow France as will UK. see this: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2015/11/22/private-armies-daesh-the-cia-and-the-trans-pacific-partnership-agreement/comment-page-1/#comment-617879

    1. Western culture = institutional deceit? Rampant individualism? Ill-conceived imperialistic military “interventions”? Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber? Respect and love for family, the importance of education and helping the less fortunate are surely universal values. So what exactly is Western culture? Can some of the smart people who leave comments on this most excellent website help me out please? I’m an Australian, this country was built by and large from the hard work of immigrants and refugees. Unless you’re an indigenous Australian, go back a generation or three and we’re all immigrants and refugees here.

  6. “France and Europe in danger of being swamped by refugees, many of whom have no intention of assimilating into western culture, but every intention of conquering it and changing it for the worse” – is it just me or does this sound dangerously close to xenophobia? And just what is “Western culture”? Fast food and internet porn? Surely any culture isn’t static. I’m really confused.

  7. If Hollande and Putin are starting a kissing theme, there is that one tincy wincy problem of those dame Mistral ships. I mean one day Hollande is spitting in Putin’ face and a few weeks later they are bosom buddies !!!!!!!!!!!
    You can’t have it both ways Mr. Hollande, it’s all or nothing, in other words, break with NATO and the western wombats and join Russia, or keep the charade of BS going. I’m sure the French people will tell Mr. Hollande a few secrets when the French go to the polls and vote. Hope Mr. Hollande has a good cv to use applying for his next job.

  8. The fighting over the pipeline through Syria has spawned these proxy forces. The PTB “Order out of Chaos” card is being played..

    For the last 14 yrs the US Borders have been wide open. Just this last Jul, I met a USMC Fallujah Vet / Karate Instructor / Border Patrol Agent at a Gasshaku (Extended Training Session) in beautiful downtown Buckeye AZ.. He explained he had to deal with MS-13 almost daily. Where these are MAM’s (Military Aged Males).. Not huddled masses.

    Since my time as Intel NCO for the AZARNG / AZANG JCNTF (Joint Counter Narcotics Task Force).. I have monitored the border situation for the past 20+ years. It has only gotten worse. The number of Non Latino illegals has grown dramatically. There have been documented cases of the Sinaloa Cartel, MS-13 and other Narco Trafficantes doing business with Islamic groups. Asians, East Europeans, etc. can be counted in that mix and or crossing the border in record numbers. Becuz, our Southern Border is that porous. See Zack Taylor’s (BP) Intel brief:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yd8S6hmddzE .. It presages an Parisian style attack in the U.S.

    The Paris event had to have superior logistics to arm and equip the shooters with AK’s and hand grenades.. This brings me back the the alleged “Human Alien Hybrid” cover story of Jeff Lash of L.A. and his $5M weapons, cash and motor pool stash,.. IMHO, Lash was a banker / logistician for illegal smuggling Ops / “Fast and Furious” Part Deux on this side of the border.. See below:
    http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/the-strange-case-of-jeffrey-alan-lash-continues-to-baffle-authorities/story-fnq2o7dd-1227509639934 .. My guess is there are Lash style Fast and Furious supply Ops in strategic places across the country. Note, the Police left Lash alone for a decade or two, while he did nothing but cash trasactions and acquired a weapons, ammo, A-Team style motor pool and cash horde in CA. The fact that the DEA, ATF,IRS and CA LEA’s didn’t kick in this guy’s door speaks volumes.

    The moral of the story is, no matter who these guys (ISIS/MS-13) are, if you own a firearm, get ye to the range. People who return fire get shot at less.

    1. Wasn’t Fast and Furious about running guns into Mexico?

      Sorry, the US has already had mass shootings of near the Paris scale.

      Also given the fake passports, and the fact that the main suspect, a citizen of Belgium, are dead there’s little to tie the Paris events to so called porous borders.

  9. Robert Barricklow

    Looks like the fickle extra state internationalists, those whose flighty money moves from far away tax havens to where austerity blooms; where the public states then strangle on these deadly internationalized private policy vines. These same internationalists sometimes roost in the UN policies as well, that are themselves realigning from west to east, as is France.
    This speaks to a design engineered from money. And this design roots go back to ancient times. Times where these designs were planted into the roots of society, and/or of mankind himself, if the truth be known.
    But by whose design and for what purpose[s]?

  10. I believe it when France calls for the termination of NATO and a real political federation of Europe.

  11. It is a stange feeling living in the thick of the action where whole malls are closed for your own protection, people so frightened they are searching for adversaries in their own families/friends. It is hard living in an area where “civility” is just a thin veneer and the reptilian brain rules. To be frank, I vastly underestimated what living under these “conditions” could be. Action, reaktion, solution might be a popular meme, it is something else totaly to undergo as those motions develop in reality around you.

    Under circumstances like this “speculation” of any sort is so much harder because the fear that permeates thru the air certainly affects everybody including me. It makes thinking clearly so much more difficult, not to mention if you don’t share the groupthink/reaction you can become a target yourself really fast.

    The Belgian media certainly puts “Saudi Arabia” as the big bad, the USA are not yet mentioned. Then again all eyes are fixed on “Molenbeek” where every terrorist of the world has a headquaters due to the police not petrolling the area since the early 1990’s. The same in every city where there are parts the police never patroles because they long ago lost control and simply are scared to do so. No 911 call could get them there and every autochthonous Belgian knows this.

    The “enclaves” that are “lawless zones” for years are many in Belgium so therefore not exactly much clairvoyance needed that the terrorist came from Belgium. It is not for nothing the population is scared shitless.

    1. “Then again all eyes are fixed on “Molenbeek” where every terrorist of the world has a [headquaters] due to the police not petrolling the area since the early 1990’s.”

      “Every terrorist”? Really? That’s a lot.

      Where can I read about the police refusing to patrol the neighborhood for 20 years?

  12. We are in the “Year of the Jubilee,” the year of Great Re-Alignments for the next 59 Years…

    The “Table Is Being ReSet Right Before Your Eyes.” China is coming to the dinner table, too–

  13. First: The Paris attacks have no particular link to ISIS, and appear to have been organized by EU citizens.

    Second: France has all sorts of colonial dreams about Syria and North Africa, and this long term ideation only scantily overlaps with US policies. But France uses US, or Russia, action to keep itself in the game. The French killed Gaddafi.

    Fourth: A variety of western European countries, France included, would want the US to maintain bases in Germany.

    Fifth: It is quite clear to many in the US establishment, like John Kerry, that the US can’t continue its proxy war against Assad, using only the “right kind” of radicals, Obama seems to have figured this one out. Hillary Clinton, the republicans and the Pentagon not so much.

    Sixth: Right, it’s Saudi+Gulf state money funding ISIS, not oil wells ISIS is running in Iraq and Syria, or some secret billion dollar market in ancient statuary. And the Saudis, with Israeli assent, are doing this as a proxy war against Iran.

      1. French commandos on the ground in Libya hunted him, likely by tracking his satellite phone.

        And then turned this information over to local militias.
