US troops training over Torun, Poland (L) and a nuclear warhead (R)
by Rohan Millson
Who’s yelling the loudest about “Russian aggression?” (and thus pushing us into a New Cold War, and towards a possible World War III?)
The answer is: the USA and its client states Poland, Romania, and Lithuania… (along with three tiny, Baltic States, Estonia and Latvia).
Here’s what the International Criminal Court has to say about these miscreants:
“…the CIA subjected ‘at least 27 detained persons’ to rape, torture, cruelty or outrages upon personal dignity while in Afghanistan.
“And other States Parties to the Statute (namely Poland, Romania and Lithuania) [did so] between December 2002 and March 2008.”
What the ICC is describing here is
* “rendition” [kidnapping and transport] of uncharged ‘suspects’ to
* “black sites” [secret American torture chambers around the world], where their
* “advanced interrogation” [torture; inquisition?] may include being raped.
These four war-crime-committing NATO members are the same four countries that are currently staging provocative military maneuvers, and building up troops and caches of weapons and materiel, right on Russia’s borders.
Note: The fact that German Leopard tanks were chewing up the earth of the Baltics on the 70th anniversary of Russia’s crushing of Germany in the 2nd World War — during which the Germans killed somewhere between 20 and 30 million Russians and other Soviet citizens — was spectacularly insensitive.
These war crime-committing NATO members are deploying defensive ABM “Aegis Ashore” missile systems on Russia’s borders, which can within 24 hours be converted into offensive nuclear weapons. Russia would be defenseless against such missiles, because St Petersburg is 5 minutes’ flight time from Poland, while other cities are a similar death sentence away from Romania.
Think about that. How would that Bomb of Damocles make you feel if it were dangling from a ravelling thread above your head? Anyone remember the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962, which had kids “ducking and covering” under their desks at school while their parents were at home digging fallout shelters in the back yard?
Because of their governments’ foolish, codependent enabling of US nuclear brinksmanship, all Romanian and Polish citizens will henceforth live under constant threat. They may be turned into charcoal dust, as the Russians are forced to paint a big white X on their cities, in MAD (mutually assured destruction) retaliation.
But, hey, it’s good for American corporations cos they get to sell lots of expensive, single-use blow-uppy stuff, and it’s bad for the Russians cos they have to divert scarce resources to defend themselves.
If we live in a NATO-member American colony, or some other US vassal state such as Australia, South Korea or Japan, the people who’re committing these crimes and stupidities are…
We’re the enemy. For only a short while longer, I hope, we’re on the wrong side of history, morality and truth.
Torturers-R-Us and the warmongers are the same people.
[And the supporters of terrorists in Syria and elsewhere, but that’s not? another story, for a different time and place.
No wonder the western propaganda machine is threatened by RT for merely doing its job of reporting important news such as this, while western presstitutes like the New York Times and the Guardian pontificate themselves into irrelevance (never this century having encountered a war they didn’t adore and glorify).
Fortunately we have in Donald Trump a president-elect who says he wants to end this insanity of constant warfare. (Will he be allowed to, I wonder? Will he still be alive come January?)
No wonder the arms dealers in the UK and the US are gibbering in fright. Along with Jens Stoltenberg of Cold War-relic NATO, arms dealers are terrified that the stupendously profitable War Dividend milch cow — on whose teats they’ve been sucking for decades — is about to (udderly) dry up.
No wonder reactionary American traitor George Soros and his fellow Deep State conspirators (whose 001 agent, Crooked Hillary Clinton, just got tossed onto the slagheap of historical irrelevance, praise be) are organizing. They pay for counter-revolutionary Snowflake demonstrators to spit their dummies and throw their toys out the cot in New York, Chicago, LA, and Portland.
Trump warned the Neocons, the lobbyists, the political action committees et al that he’s coming to drain their swamp of corruption in DC. Therefore Trump’s revolution is an existential threat to them. They’ll cry havoc and unslip all dogs necessary to stop him, including Soros’s speciality around the world: an NGO-sponsored Color Revolution (called the Purple Revolution in the States) and, possibly, assassination.
Although many of the loudest people out there don’t know it yet – perhaps because they can’t shout and listen at the same time? – Trump represents a once-in-a-lifetime chance for humanity to break free from the insidious, inseparable forces of repression called Neoconservatism, Neoliberalism, Hegemony, Globalism, Fascism and Corporatism.
All of us who “like living in countries,” rather than under an unelected Oligarchy, which relies for its persistence upon a militarized police state, should adopt Donald Trump as our (yes, incredibly polarizing) champion. And we should pray that he ends Bush II’s and Obama’s fake War on Terror and wins his real War on War.
