  1. NATO can´t fight a large scale war with Russia on European continent, as it would be quickly outgunned. Russia has this medium size, active and modern military force, which is alone very capable fighting wars, specially capable fighting wars in its own backyard. Now, if the worst happens and the war breaks out, Russia can very quickly call out huge reserve forces. This force not only include manpower, but a huge numbers of tanks and other heavy equipment from Soviet era, tanks like T-72. It is still a quite capable tank even nowadays. There are alone some 7000 T-72s in reserve. It would be a logistic nightmare and next to impossible for NATO to build matching military force in Europe. So I think if the war breaks out, and if NATO wants a war, it has to fight it somewhere else, in the Middle-East, possibly in Syria. And of course NATO knows very well that Russia will never fight another war on its own soil, Russia has made this very clear, it will answer with nukes in such a case. Let´s hope things don´t go so far. Im a Finnish man living in Russia, with my Russian wife and my Russian children, so its a personal tragedy for me to see this kind of clash of Russia and West happening. My homeland Finland is just another Washington´s vassal nowadays, unable to exercise its own independent foreign policy, even the newspapers in Finland just copies and translates their news from CNN. Its bad. Being a member of active reserve of Finnish Defence Forces does not make my situation any better, military service and reserve afterwards is a mandatory thing in Finland. If the war breaks out and I refuse to serve in military, it will make me a traitor in Finland and they put me in prison, in Russia they probably see me as enemy soldier, so I think me and my family have to immigrate to Argentina, or to Antarctica in a such case 😛 LOL Anyways we are living very interesting times.

  2. In one way, the behind-the-scenes web-pullers may have brought it on themselves. Back in, say, WWII, there were clear demarcations between political leaders and industrialists/bankers. (Not really, but that was the mindset.) So, leaders may have been targeted, but not TPTB.

    These days, the rats have come out of the wall. The ascendancy of ‘Color Revolutions’ and back-door regime changes have made it plain who are the REAL movers and shakers. Political leaders are so passé…

    I feel like we are in “The Godfather” movies. The only question is whether the Dons will do minor, retaliatory hits on each other forever – while the overall situation remains the same (farming) – or whether an Enterprising (ahem) Don will do a surgical strike on all the other Dons.

    Interesting times…

  3. As I have written before the Neo-Confederates are not insane they’re worst just plain stupid. Which makes them all the more dangerous barbarians they have always been.

  4. None the less, a cat backed into a corner can make strange jumps and the Neo Cons are nutters totaly out of control.

    Since it is so open to see lets hope large parts of the public sees this also and take this opputunity to react responsible within the confines of the law.

    It would be nice if those “criminals” would be put on trail in the Haque and that court for once would do what it is created for but I am not holding my breath.
