COMMENT: Hello Marty,

I’m wondering if the draw back of the US occupation of Europe since WW2 and US subsidization of army support has produced a tradition of pacifism. Germany’s reluctance to provide tanks to Ukraine suggests different motives.

The media focuses extra on Russia and inside dissent in opposition to Putin. One reads about defections and males attempting to flee the draft. The true symptom is the fraying of Nato and the US mission in Europe.

I severely doubt Europeans need warfare. These army alliances die over time. Until there’s a perceived army risk, Nato seems to be a relic just like the Maginot Line fortifications in France many years in the past.

To my reminiscence, no army alliance has ever lasted lengthy. They often die off from wars waged or the passing of time. NAto now could be on the clock. I feel it is going to die this decade.


REPLY: NATO is the issue. Russia, and its individuals, haven’t any want to invade Europe. The day of communism and its unfold as a non secular cult is over, besides within the West the place Socialism is the technique of the ability of the state and to maintain the individuals dependent upon that energy the very actual approach that communism labored. Even supposing communism collapsed it was so inefficient and disadvantaged the individuals of even freedom to think about and curiosity that’s the seed of advancing society. With out that freedom to think about and the curiosity to find new issues, society withers and dies.


The Neocons see solely hatred and warfare. John McCain brazenly met with the Neonatzis of Ukraine and promised them the funding to destroy Russia. No one thinks in regards to the individuals. It’s at all times this ideological endeavor to destroy an opponent as if this had been a Roman Gladiator Contest to the demise. They count on the individuals to utter the identical phrases – “We who’re about to die, salute you.

NATO is a relic. It has NO PURPOSE except it may well consistently argue that Russia is the enemy and it’ll conquer all of Europe with out NATO. This to me is similar as Athens demanding tribute from Greek cities that grew to become the Delian League.  That alliance of Greek city-states led by Athens was shaped in 478 BC as a protection to a “potential” revenge invasion from Persia following the Greek victories at Marathon, Salamis, and Plataea in the course of the fifth century BC. Persian by no means once more even tried such an invasion. However Athens extorted the Greek Metropolis States and moved the central Treasury from Delos to Athens and used all that tribute to construct nice monuments in Athens. The USA is like Athens. It defeated the German Nazis like Athens defeated the Persians. We created NATO to then defend in opposition to the Russian Communists, however have supported the Ukrainian Neonazis ever since and guarded them from any prosecution.

That exploitation led to discontent and lots of then joined with Sparta to assault the vanity of Athens. It was then that Persia supported Sparta to defeat Athens in 404 BC. The query is quite blunt. Will historical past repeat and Russia be part of with China to take down the vanity of the West and make Stolenberg choke on his personal phrases – “Weapons are the best way to peace.” Sorry, however Rome confirmed us the best way to peace – inclusion, and commerce. The West has finished nothing however rejects permitting Russia to enter the Western financial system. As soon as the persons are dependent upon commerce, that’s what creates peace – by no means arms.


Athens fell in 404 BC. The price of defending itself in opposition to Sparta backed by the Delian League and Persia led to its debasement of the coinage when the silver was operating out. The emergency difficulty was bronze silver plated. The most typical denomination grew to become the drachm – debased at that. If historical past repeats, then the financial system of the West will likewise collapse because it pours unjustified cash into Ukraine – a authorities consumed with hatred. Peace will solely come when the Ukrainian individuals overthrow Zelensky and get up that they’re merely being sacrificed within the warfare of hatred in opposition to Russia that’s propelled by propaganda.

Simply take heed to the propaganda being unfold by the Prime Minister of Finland who is ready to additionally sacrifice her individuals on the altar of the Neocons.


NATO has no objective if there may be peace. Like historic Athens, they need to at all times scare the individuals and declare that Russia desires to invade and conquer Europe. The Russian individuals no extra need warfare than the individuals of Europe. NATO will stop any peace and utilizing arms solely permits them to maintain their jobs and unfold propaganda to keep up their place.
