We’ve enjoyed our front row seat watching one of the biggest geopolitical scams in modern history crumble before our eyes. And as a freebie, we get to see the West in total denial of their Frankenstein foreign policy which has morphed into a self-sanctioning dead-end that the next generation will pay for. But there is a silver lining to this act of the play.
The crisis in Western leadership is now on full display, due in great degree to their contempt of public opinion. No longer do they try to hide it, but just put it right out there.
What am I talking about?…The use of Western military power to advance its financial interests has openly become its primary mission, and a tremendous abuse of those serving in the military. Some would say treason.
If that hijacking of our defense power by our financial elites was not bad enough, the worst part of it is that, it’s not working!! It’s actually speeding up our economic demise. We are watching the classic case of the inmates having taken over the asylum and fantasizing that they are the beneficent rulers of the universe. You just can’t make this stuff up.
This morning’s example was perfect. While the White House wants us to be focused on another one of their never ending Ukraine diversions using false charges, they are demanding proof of the Russian pullback from the Ukrainian border. They think we are so stupid that we don’t know that once the order is given that the logistics of doing this takes several days, starting with one day to pack. So we get the cheap pitch that Putin is lying. “Prove it” demands the White House, only hours after Putin has announced the order. We caught you again White House staff.
But Putin is not wasting his time on silliness. He is in China getting ready to participate in one of the greatest shifts in power of the 21st century, with a record number of cooperation agreements that he will sign with China today. The most important will be huge joint energy infrastructure projects that will dwarf anything going on in the West with its stagnant economies.
Flagship Gas Contract
For openers, we have the first 30-year Russian gas contract for $486 billion, which will bring 38 billion cubic meters (cm) annually to China by 2018 with the completion with the trans-Siberian pipeline, a large investment in itself of $22 to $30 billion.
When the northern route deal is inked, they will move on to finalizing the in progress southern-route Altai pipeline through China’s Xinjiang province, which will add another 30 billion cubic meters per year, for a total – north and south – of 68 billion per year. This will be one of the planned anchors of the New Silk Road, where China wants to begin spreading its population out to the newly developing areas to its west.
Europe is currently Russia’s biggest gas customer at 160 billion cm in 2013. China’s total gas imports are expected to be up 20% in 2014, to 186 billion cm. But the silver bullet in all of this is the 20%-increase number. The Asian market is where all the major growth is predicted, as the West stagnates from having had its disposable wealth “disposed of”. Our own political and Wall Street gangsters devoted their lives to cleaning us out of cash and equity, and leaving IOU’s to ourselves as collateral.
The Bush crime family was one of the leaders of the pack in that heist after failing in their attempt to go through the Caucasus region to get control of all the landlocked energy resources there. The goal was to leave China vulnerable to being checkmated by our US Navy, what seems to be their main job now, to threaten competitors’ sea routes if and when the US chooses.
Success would have put the Bush crime community in control over Pakistan and India’s future needs, and blocking the Russians out.
And with a little war here, a little war there, some terrorism sprinkled everywhere, they could keep the prices rigged to literally keep us all in energy serfdom. To that indignity, they are planning to add food and even water serfdom, so they can treat us all like industrial chicken coop animals to generate maximum profits.
That is what drove Obama’s Asia Pivot (not his really, but one delivered to him) and the EU and NATO’s push to the Russian border to get a rope around the few countries left for them to exploit in their own backyards. That has been the whole motivation behind their attack on Ukraine, which is turning into a Waterloo for them, one they had hoped it would be for Russia. But the Russians play better chess.
The ongoing Syrian mass-murder has been motivated by getting the pipeline through the northern part of the country to bring the Qatari gas fields and Saudi oil to Europe’s southern doorstep to flank the Russian suppliers. The sleeper in all this is the huge reserves under the Eastern Mediterranean that they kept under cover to keep the current prices high. You never read a peep about these anywhere.
They wanted to get that pipeline built and paid for by someone else, and then “discover” how big these East Med reserves are, and then also have them under their control. If you look at where the Saudis have focused their main terrorist effort in Syria, that will be a big clue as to where the reserves come ashore. Were they willing to kill off 150,000 people to get control of this? Yes… and they are willing to kill more.
All that I can see that could possibly save us is some major boomerang regime change in the West. That can only come from two places, the non-elite control of business conglomerates combined with any military that is still left that is not serving the elitist cabal.
The looters must be looted themselves. Data-mining gives us the power to do it, but the Intel agencies are sitting on who has stolen all the money and where every dime of it is. They are just playing a ”stay in the game” holding position for themselves, and have been negligent in allowing their employers to shake down their citizens like this.
Never has so little been owed to so few. If they had just had more courage and integrity they could have led the public through a complete purge of our internal political corruption and begun rebuilding on a new foundation. We are still waiting for them to stop playing it safe and live up to their oaths of office. More public encouragement for them to do so would help a great deal.
Meanwhile, back in Asian Pivot land, these huge energy infrastructure developments are not an end in themselves, but merely the catalyst of huge developments which will flourish like wildflowers after a spring rain on the Asian Steppes. The West is going to be pretty much shut out of any major participation, due to their militaristic economic policies. Letting the Westerners in…is just too dangerous as they are a proven threat with their fake USAID and NGO regime-change armies out of uniform. They were our original smiling, asymmetric regime change commandos.
One of the many projects being signed between China and Russia is a joint venture to develop a wide-bodied airliner with no Western investment or technology. In the future, they will not have to worry about parts being sanctioned whenever the US or EU desires. By shutting the business flow of civilian airliner sales to the East, they will not be funding the Western civilian air power aggression – a most rational move.
The jobs, profits, taxes, social welfare and control over their future will remain in their hands, and in the hands of all their neighbors who have been targeted for scalping by the Western elitists. I make a critical distinction there. It is not the Western people who are threatening the East, but the West’s corrupt and compromised governments who are the threat.
We can only save ourselves by massive regime change in the West. The EU has to go, being replaced with something much less repressive, but where trading arrangements can be maintained without effectively transferring their sovereignty to governing bodies that are controlled by those who have pillaged us so much. These bodies were their creations, done to serve their own interests and the rest of us further down the food chain.
We have to get refocused on who the real enemy is, and to surgically remove the public officials, military, judicial and law enforcement among us who serve and protect these mega criminals in exchange for their little piece of the pie.
If we don’t have the stomach to face up to it, then we will be seeing our grandchildren heading out to Asia to work as domestics when that becomes the fashion there, and the necessity here. And when it does, we will have to share much of the responsibility for not having faced the challenge.
