GERMAN MILITARY DRILLS… AND EU CRACKUP?

Many people sent this story to me this past week, and while it may seem a bit "low key", I submit that when one thinks about its implications, it's a stunner.

What's the story? Well, the German army is wargaming a break up of the European Union in its recent drills:

German army 'plans for break up of the European Union' in war game scenario

German Army Prepares For "Break-Up Of European Union" Or Worse...

The drills and wargames apparently come from a recent strategic analysis undertaken by the German military, presumably classified but (somehow) acquired by Germany's Der Spiegel magazine. The report is titled "Strategic Perspective 2040" and outlines a number of scenarios, in which, according to the Zero Hedge article, we find the following scenario:

In one of the six scenarios ("The EU in Disintegration and Germany in Reactive Mode"), the authors assume a "multiple confrontation".

The future projection describes a world in which the international order erodes after "decades of instability", the value systems worldwide diverge and globalization is stopped.

"The EU enlargement has been largely abandoned, other states have left the community Europe has lost its global competitiveness," write the Bundeswehr strategists:

"The increasingly disorderly, sometimes chaotic and conflict-prone world has dramatically changed the security environment of Germany and Europe."

In the fifth scenario ("West to the East"), some eastern EU countries are freezing the state of European integration while others have "joined the Eastern bloc".

Now, there's two very interesting things to note about this report, which, according to the Daily Telegraph article, remains substantially secret. Firstly, the German military's analysis is (apparently) ignoring the geopolitical and economic realities, since it is listing a growing integration with "the Eastern bloc," i.e., Russia. This I find immensely curious since by all reckoning, the German business community has been quite unhappy with the sanctions regime against Russia, Europe's, and Germany's principal energy supplier. Notably, the target of this concern is not Russia itself, but rather, the states of Eastern Europe, which, incidentally, have been opposed to Berlin's and Brussel's "refugee policies." In short, the document appears to be coming from the perspective of "globalism", "Atlanticism," and "European integration." Which brings us to the real and second concern: what does Germany do if the EU does crack apart?

What's intriguing to note here is a curious lack in the reportage of this story: there's no mention whatsoever of European military integration, not even with France, which has been, like Germany, in the forefront of advocating a common European military.  I've blogged about this story before in this website, noting the mergers of large German and French defense contractors as a prelude to the creation of that integrated military. In other words, the document is assuming a complete breakdown of integration. Which leaves one wondering what, exactly, the German military would view as being in the country's security interests. Again, there is a curious lack of mention here, so we're left to speculate.

Which takes me back to some curious remarks made by the late Chancellor Helmut Kohl (mentor, let it be recalled, of Mad Madam Merkel) as the Warsaw Pact was collapsing and the former members of the Eastern bloc were being "integrated" into Europe. This remark, in fact, I mentioned in my book The Nazi International: Kohl informed the Czech republic and other former Warsaw pact members that it was either integration, or that Germany would be forced to solve the problem of Mitteleuropa "in the traditional way," a remark that has the ring of US Defense Secretary Robert Gates' remarks to Japan regarding Okinawa, made just before the Fukushima disaster.

Kohl's remarks suggest the heart of the concerns of the German military in the event of an EU crackup: Germany would, by the nature of the case, almost have to re-introduce the old "Snake", the "European Exchange Rate Mechanism" that pegged the currencies of the Netherlands, Denmark, Austria, Luxembourg, and the Czech republic to the Deutschmark. In short, Germany would seek, if not European-wide integration, then a limited version of it composing central Europe for the simple reason that it would have to secure some European markets. And that would include integration with the militaries of those countries...

... and surprise surprise, if you've been following this story, you'll be aware that already elements of the Dutch and Czech militaries have placed certain units in the Bundeswehr's chain of command.

And all that suggests is that some in the corridors of power in Berlin have drawn some unpleasant conclusions about the long term prospects of "Europe."

See you on the flip side...

  1. If some of those sealed indictments piling up over the last week have anything at all to do with the Clinton crime machine then it’s going to be fun and terrible to watch the backlash. Some of the MSM talking heads are already foaming at the mouth and coming unraveled – a taste perhaps of what’s to come in wider arenas.

    Now Gary Cohen is in the White House orchestrating the resurrection of Glass Steagall to knock all the commercial banks out of the investment bank business leaving Goldman Sachs (Government Sachs) with just one competitor – Morgan Stanley.
    Meanwhile, because the ECB will cut its bond purchases by 50% next year so Draghi will be unable to help the Italian government and rules against bailing out the banks may just explode in everyone’s face next year.

  3. Christ is geopolitical transaction. He always was, and always will be. In tribal warfare there must be clearing space (Rune truce). It can never be the whole world. So it must be limited within borders. Natural law.

    Cause of conflict in Europe is very old. It goes back to infighting between the twelve tribes in the Old Testament. Europeans are the original Isra-elites, that are sleeping today, unaware of their original identity. Rise and shine.

    Sat-anic spa-wn, that falsely claims to be, is a mocking masquerade heading for the p-i-t. It is written.

  4. JPF: “In short, the document appears to be coming from the perspective of ‘globalism’, ‘Atlanticism’, and “European integration’.”

    Well, yeah… Actually, for each of those camps, one should substi tute-in [hah!] Banksters, and the shadowy figures behind them pulling the strings. The magic of fiat currency and usury (interest) has brought almost the entire world into debt slavery. Entire nations and coalitions of nations are on the final, slippery slope into bankruptcy. In short, we are approaching ‘transition times’.

    Prof. Michael Hudson has done a superlative job in tracing Debt back into Sumerian and Egyptian times. What he found was a self-correcting system. The merchants and the money-changers (bankers) naturally prospered more than the average Joe or Jane, and eventually there was too much debt (and slavery due to debt) for the situation to be sustainable. The rulers of the time were wise-enough to be afraid of their ‘serfs’ welcoming an invader who would zero their debts. So, the (debt) Jubilee…

    In the periodic debt Jubilee, most debts would be reset to zero, and slaves due-to-debt would be returned to citizen-status. The merchants and the money-changers (bankers) naturally hated taking a haircut, but were wise enough to also know that the ‘serfs’ had pitchforks…

    The debt Jubilee system enabled the Sumerian and Egyptian nations to last for thousands of years. It was only when early Roman rulers ‘sided’ with the merchants and the money-changers that the Jubilee system broke down. Since then, insti tutionalized [hah!] classes (including slave classes) have been common. (What was the dividing line, in that time, to toss-away a working solution?)

    Now, in the 21st century, we are hitting a wall that should have been taken-care-of by a debt Jubilee. A reset. A haircut. It seems like the merchants and the money-changers (bankers) of this time will not allow this, and are doing the initial (top secret) wargames to keep the insti tutionalized class structure at all costs.

    As the ancient blessing/curse goes, “May you live in interesting times…”

      1. Do the countries stuped in globalism, Atlanticism and European integration deserve debt Jubilee?
        I sometimes wonder since I have still had to meet somebody who was shaken by the fact their government where annihilating whole countries not once but multiple times.
        From that fact I understand refugees come and leech Western countries and hate us with a vengeance.
        As far as I understand it vast populations on earth, especially in the West, have no problem being a parasite as long it is not them being victimized. That pesky “parasitical” problem of the so-called elite has become very liberalized along with many other unsavory habits!

    1. Goshawks,
      Apologies for the lengthy post, but it seems you & me are much on the same “wavelength”, so to speak.
      I think “transition time” is when they have full-spectrum control over everything in, on and above this planet. This is what they’re so hard at work on at the moment to achieve (it has taken them much longer than anticipated, hence the ridiculous debt levels the world sees itself in at the moment).
      Be it via direct (expensive) warfare, proxy wars (just as expensive, almost), financial manipulation and monopolization, global fascist/police/surveillance state, etc, etc.

      When this goal is achieved, then The Big Reset will be executed.

      And I don’t think that this will just be in the financial sense, it is probably going to include a nasty cull of the world population. After all, they won’t all be needed any longer.
      I also think that this scenario has played out many times before in the (distant) past. “Tower Of Babel Moment”, call it what you like.
      It’s the Dark Age Elite that survives it and then starts the whole cycle anew again. This is why it keeps repeating, at least for the past 5,000 years ever since this solar system approached and then entered the Kali Yuga (Dark Age, ~1,400 year) cycle.
      Go back a further full Yuga cycle (~24,000 years) and the same thing would have happened back then. And so on…
      It is up to us individuals to overcome the evils & temptations of the Dark Age cycle, this is the only way to break it.
      And this is what “they”, The Dark Age Elite want to prevent at all cost, as they would lose control if people were to free themselves from it (free from the debt slave, rank consumerist materialism, the system “they” created!).
      This is why to this day ancient cultures&sites, rituals, statues, temples, etc have been – and are being – destroyed the world over, to eliminate any reference and connection to them. Same for our connection to nature and the cosmos as a whole.
      Turning humans into compliant androids is the plan.

      The good news?
      They are losing and they are desperate.
      Good will always triumph over evil in the end.
      As someone said so beautifully:
      “You can take a candle into a room full of darkness & evil, and instantly the room lights up and darkness flees.
      But you can not do the opposite”.
      The more people learn the real truth of our history, our present and therefore our future, the brighter this candle becomes. The Group Effect.
      And it scares the sh*t out of “them”.

      1. BetelgeuseT-1, a great post. Yep, they are scared of us. I take the ramping-up of the MSM drumbeat and the frantic push for consumerism as signs that the layperson is slowly awakening. Hence, the need for added ‘distraction’ from going-within and re-empowering. The good news is that the subtlety is gone from TPTB-inspired events. Those events now positively-proclaim False Flag or Manipulation…

        I also think there is a spiritual side of this. Whether we are coming-out-of a Kali Yuga cycle or humanity is just growing-up, the tide has turned. I wonder: What does a Reverse ““Tower of Babel Moment” look like?

      Goshawks
      Superlative post.
      Michael Hudson is THE Economist.
      I’ve listened to him on his web site discussing this subject. He’s also written[and still writing] about this “forgotten” history in conjunction w/other scholars.

      Looks like they added & mixed all the proper ingredients. Now all they have to do is…
      forge it into the crucible of war.

    2. Robert Barricklow

      After decades of destroying the “Nation States’ international order; actually the NWO is getting dolled-up for a dramatically staged entrance – to rescue us from… ?
      Why the ones who staged it all, of course

  5. The alleged revelations seem to neglect the fact that a main factor in “EU breakup” – i.e. weaponised migration – was pushed by Germany, or at least the Merkelite faction.
    As for Enrico’s question about the ethnicity of German armed forces there is no doubt in my mind that the “traditional way” is being applied there too. However, some here may recall a link I posted from the Reichswehr (pardon Bundeswehr) website at the height of the 2016 migrant invasion, stating that many of these people were to be housed on military bases. What has happened to them now?

  6. There is little doubt that people of European decent are, and have been, under a multi pronged attack over the last several decades. The declining birth rates due to GMO foods laced with spermicides; and vaccines laced with birth control and other health destroying additives; combined with the massive influx of third world immigrants virtually assures they will soon become minorities within their borders resulting in the reduction of these nations to third world status complete with internal strife.
    It should be obvious the leaders of these nations are on board with this planned destruction of European culture and their populations. Essentially we are witnessing the somewhat covert “white genocide” in addition to the somewhat covert genocide of “people of color” accomplished through biological and chemical means along with obvious wars of aggression. It is interesting to note that the East is having nothing to do with any of this other than exporting it to the West and profiting from it along with the globalists.

  7. The first thought that occurs to me is how many of the German armed forces are of actual German ethnicity?

    1. If they start insisting on having only German ethnicity in the German army.. well.. .. thats going back a few years.. but they already did it once.. Now lets see how long they can last before they try to take on the Russian Winter.. again.
