Trumps Message to the World

Trump_signs_Russia_Sanctions and declares at the same time they contain „unconstitutional elements“ (said by someone who´s sworn an oath to protect the constitution)!

What does that mean? Well, it says: „World, look here, I´m Gulliver 2.0!“ He has learned that the US President is by no means „the most powerful man on Earth“, but at best the most glamorous man on Earth. And his learning started a while ago, even before taking office, his_struggle_for_survival_had_already_begun. He´s also been „on_track“ since a while. But the faint protest says also: people, understand, if the the „Deep_State“ drives us into WW III, it´s not my fault!

The citizens of the US and more so the citizens of the allied states (better say vassal states) should finally_wake_up!

Trumps Botschaft an die Welt

Trump_unterzeichnet_die_Russland-Sanktionen „unter Protest“ und erklärt, sie enthielten Elemente, die der Verfassung widersprächen (wobei er geschworen hat, die Verfassung zu schützen). Was will er der Welt sagen? Schaut her, ich bin in Wahrheit Gulliver 2.0!

Er hat schon vor Amtsantritt gelernt, dass der US-Präsident keinesfalls der „mächtigste Mann der Welt“ ist, bestenfalls der prächtigste Mann der Welt, wozu ihm so recht auch das Zeug fehlt. Tatsächlich hat sein Kampf_ums_Ueberleben schon vor Längerem begonnen! Auch bei Trump war es „nichts_mit_Change“. Und schnell war er „auf_Linie“ gebracht, dafür hat der „tiefe Staat“ der USA gesorgt. Nun aber möchte er vielleicht der Welt signalisieren: seht her, wenn die US-(Neocon)-Machtelite uns in den dritten Weltkrieg treibt, nicht meine Schuld!

Tatsächlich ist es insbesondere für Europa höchste Zeit_endlich_aufzuwachen!

The US American Independence Day forces one again to strike a quick balance of what is going on in the “most powerful country in the World” and how that country goes about with the World. Apart from the fact that it is hardly a day to celebrate for the autochonious inhabitants of that territory, it is also not such a joyful day for many people in the World. But even many people in the US don´t have too much reason to celebrate.

What is left of US Democracy (which at least for a long time didn´t include the Autochonious and African Americans)? A President is to be seen who has thrown overboard the important announcements (detente with Russia, getting away from Regime Change Wars) faster than any President before nim has done so with his announcements. In fact since a long time it is clear, that there will be “no_change” if not approved by the people “behind the curtain”. Trump has been made “trump-on_track” by now. But who really pulls the strings? It´s the US Power Elite, dominated by its Neocon fraction and their “Deep_State”! That Power Elite wages literally “War_on_the_World” and on civil rights at home and abroad, based on the “most_collosal_lie_ever_told” on Nine Eleven. They are driven by their “nightmares”.

So the World has to find ways to “contain” the US power. This is even more true for the Southern Hemisphere and East Asia, sine that US Power Elite has declared_biowar_on_the_Southern_Hemisphere_and_East-Asia ! All this sums up to a more are less hidden Fascism, “cooked” in the Neocon_think_tanks.

Actually on this day and on every day we can say to the US: “for_you_and_for_the_World_we_cry”! What on this day fits most to the occasion is Jimi Hendrix version of US´s National_Anthem!

4. Juli, wieder Zeit, Bilanz zu ziehen!

Der Nationalfeiertag der USA gibt Anlass, wieder einmal Bilanz zu ziehen, was in diesem Land, das zurecht als das mächtigste Land der Welt angesehen wird, vor sich geht und wie es mit der Welt umgeht. Abgesehen davon, dass die Amerikanischen Ureinwohner wenig Anlass haben, den Tag zu feiern, trifft das auch für viele Afroamerikaner und überhaupt für einen großen Teil aller US-Amerikaner wie ganz besonders für die Welt zu.

Wir sehen einen US-Präsidenten in Rekordzeit seine wichtigsten Ankündigungen wie die Entspannung mit Russland und die Abkehr von den Regime-Change-Kriegen über Bord geworfen hat und nun von den Kräften “hinter dem Vorhang” komplett “auf_Linie” gebracht worden ist. Nun ist dem Eingeweihten klar, dass es seit Kennedy “nichts_mehr_mit_Change” ist, wenn es diesen Kräften nicht gefällt. Aber, wer sind diese Kräfte? Nun, es ist die von den “Neocons” dominierte US-Machtelite, die tatsächlich die Welt unter Kontrolle bringen will.

Seit “Nine_Eleven” führt diese Machtelite, basierend auf einer monumentalen Lüge einen Krieg gegen die Welt und die Bürgerrechte. Tatsächlich könnte dieser Krieg indirekt auch zur “Sprengung_Europas” führen. Auch gegen Europa wird die “Schock_Strategie” durchgeführt. Die Grundlagen, ja, man muss sagen, eines mehr oder weniger verdeckten US-Faschismus wurden in den Neocon-Think-Tanks entwickelt.

Die Welt wird sich dazu finden müssen, diesen US-Machtwahn einzudämmen, wenn die Menschheit ihm nicht zum Opfer fallen soll!

So bleibt nur, den USA zuzurufen: Vierter Juli? Für Euch und für die Welt müssen wir weinen! Das, was zu diesem Tag am besten passt, ist Jimi Hendrix´ Version_der_US-Nationalhymne in Woodstock von 1969!

trump-inaugurated

Deutsche Version unten

Donald Trump has been inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. He took over from a President whose announcement of “Change” was hardly fullfilled. Instead he continued with US war policy and destroyed (driven by Clinton) Libya and allowed his “intelligence apparatus” to almost destroy Syria. Drone war was stepped up and many other bad things happened under his government like fuelling the war machinery in East Europe. I still tend to believe that originally he might have intended otherwise but didn´t want to become a “2nd Kennedy”!

Now Donald Trump is announcing “Change” again, his first speech as President being quite vigilant but held in a way which didn´t show too much tactical wisdom. His claim “now deeds should count instead of words” was countered by too much rethoric. He might have been better advised to “tame” the “Deep State” (if at all possible) before radicalizing his rhetoric too much.

Well, for people having read my articles properly it´s clear I´m not a fan of this guy, but I was relieved that the Neocon warmonger Clinton didn´t get into office. So my wish for the world and for the USA is that at least he fullfills his claim for Detente with Russia (which might safe our all lives) and that he really abstays from further “Regime Change Wars”. That might allow him to sanitze the economy of the US at least to a part, if he is not also falling to Wallstreet (and some announcements and some of his personel show that danger clearly). He´d have to do a lot to tame the suprematist and chauvinist tendencies he had to a certain extend pushed, including tendencies of discrimination against minorities in general.

My wish for the Palestinians is that he´d get aware of his foolish attitude to knuddle Israel´s policy of occupation. He will not fullfill his claim “to make America great again” with this servile attitude to Israel´s Power Elite (and a vast section of his electorate will not really like that).

Well, I´m not his advisor, and good wishes from my side with respect to world policy didn´t show the tendency to substanciate themselves. So, I have to confess: with Clinton I would have had the terrible certainty of more wars, but with this man I´m still very sceptical.

So, my slogan: people inside and outside the US, stand up against US Imperialism, if necessary also against Trump, but not foolishly in favour of that warmonger Clinton! And for the US: only if you manage to build a mass movement for peace and social justice, culminating in a real leftist independent Party, you´ll have the chance for a truly better society (and world)!

And after all, taking his speech in account, many things could still happen to him which wouldn´t be for the good of all of us!

Es ist soweit: Trump ist der 45. Präsident der USA!

Ja, nun ist es soweit, die USA haben einen neuen Präsidenten, Donald Trump! Die “Transatlantiker” sind in heller Panik, er hat den europäischen Vasallen-Eliten die Wahrheit gesagt: für die US-Politik zählen die USA, die USA und nochmals die USA (ob auch er damit nur die reichen US-Amerikaner meint oder doch in einem etwas höheren Grade die us-amerikanische Allgemeinheit, wird sich zeigen, ich bin skeptisch)! Die Vasallen-Eliten in Europa hatten sich so daran gewöhnt, dass ihr Vasallentum mit solchen süßen Wörtern wie “auf gleicher Augenhöhe” verzuckert wurde, so sehr, dass große Teile der Bevölkerung auf den Schwindel hereinfielen. Nun könnte sich für mehr Menschen herausstellen: die europäsichen “Könige von US-Gnaden” sind nackt!

Die europäischen Gesellschaften werden sich jetzt mit der von Trump ausgesprochenen Tatsache auseinandersetzen müssen: die NATO ist obsolet! Daraus ergeben sich zwei Möglichkeiten: entweder man erkennt die Notwendigkeit europäischer Friedenspolitik, gerade Russland gegenüber, aber auch dem Umfeld Europas, insbesondere Afrika und dem Nahen und Mittleren Osten gegenüber. Oder man bezahlt sich “dumm und dämlich” für europäische Aufrüstungspolitik, um wieder zukünftigen Kriegsdrohungen und Kriegen im Interesse der US-Machtelite zu dienen (mit der Illusion, es seien die eigenen Interessen)!

Sollte Trump gegen alle Gefahren (auch gegen die Gefahr, ein “Zweiter Kennedy” zu werden, nämlich ein toter Präsident) seine Ankündigung wahrmachen, Entspannung mit Russland durchzuführen und mit “Regime-Change Kriegen” aufzuhören, dann hätte er Europa damit in einem Maße geholfen, wie keiner vor ihm.

Diese beiden Dinge sind allerdings auch den US-Amerikanern wie der ganzen Welt zu wünschen. Den Palästinensern ist zu wünschen, dass der Mann beizeiten erkennt, dass das Anbiedern an die israelische Machtelite und ihre völkerrechtswidrige Okkupationspolitik (sowie zerstörerische Politik der Umgebeung gegenüber) nicht nur seinem Slogan “make America great again” ins Gesicht schlägt, sonden den USA weitere Kriege bescheren könnte!

Wer meinen Blog gründlich gelesen hat, weiß, dass ich nicht wirklich ein Trump-Fan bin. In der Sozial-Politik ist wohl nicht wirklich allzu viel Gutes von ihm zu erwarten. Aber ich bin erleichtert, dass die Kriegstreiberin Clinton nicht ins Amt gekommen ist, mit ihr wäre ein heißer Konflikt gerade auch in Osteuropa so gut wie sicher gewesen. Ob Trumps “Change” mehr wert ist als Obamas “Change” wird sich zeigen müssen. Europa und speziell Deutschland sollten aus der Entwicklung lernen.

Und übrigens: wer den “Rechts-Populismus” (zu Recht) fürchtet, sollte alles dafür tun, dass auf Gerechtigkeits- und Friedensfragen wirklich konsequente linke Antworten entwickelt werden. Das sollte sich gerade meine Partei, DIE LINKE, sehr zu Herzen nehmen!

In these heated times it´s wonderful to hear a clear mind speak out. Hear Professor Stephen_F._Cohen talk in an Interview about the relations between the US and Russia:

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45847.htm

But he speaks in favour of peace and general human interest. Those powers in the US that (shouldn´t) be have only their own nightmares in mind. And they might produce a real nightmare for humanity if we do not develop true resistance!

It´s not a joke – or if, then a very dangerous one – but the US Power Elite sees the whole globe to be their colony. How far this goes shows a view on the way  the US_Mititary_High_Commands for the various regions of this World are organized:

us-military-commands

The Sun never sets in the US Empire!”

In fact the US High Command for the region in the center of the old Tri-Continent Asia, Europe, Africa, is called US CENTCOM, United_States_Central_Command. Under normal circumstances one would expect a big power – if so arrogant anyway to divide the World into sections for “colonial” military organization – to name the region of their own country as “CENTCOM”.

The explanation for this somehow strange naming is, that the US Power Elite has taken over – with some regional modification – the ideas of Sir Halford John Mackinder, a British Geographer and political analyst having formulated the „Heartland Theory”. Quote:

„Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland; Who rules the Heartland commands the World Island; Who rules the World Island commands the World.“

http://www.indrastra.com/2016/06/PAPER-Heartland-Theory-of-Mackinder-Relevancy-in-Central-Asia-Geopolitics-002-06-2016-0043.html

Especially we in Europe should all know that it´s very dangerous to ally oneself too closely with a power following such dangerous concepts, since allies will be regarded as the forefront for militant expansion and thus are in the danger to become a battleground! This would be more dangerous with a probable US President named Hillary_Clinton!

Bathing Costume 1890

France has a long history in colonialism and colonial and imperial wars, especially also in Near East (http://tinyurl.com/pznrayh). A different matter is that Frances´s secular traditions should be honoured despite of that. I also understand the ban of the burka if covering the face. I also agree that the extreme covering of women in some Muslim societies is a symbol of lacking freedom for women. Likewise the unnecessary uncovering of women in contrast to men in Western societies is also a symbol of degrading women to sex symbols.

France´s Society going mad?!

France had – like Germany – a recent series of terror attacs. No matter who in the final analysis was behind it (http://tinyurl.com/zrwrk3k) it implicated young muslims who feel that their places of origin are degraded, occupied, war torn by the West. As much as they do in the final analysis the job Western Power Elites (particularly the US Power Elite) want them to do and as much as they should be warned of that (http://tinyurl.com/9bghg9n) it appears some people in France are very eager to provoke more of such stupid and cruel attacks (to have more reason for interventions?).

Europe shouldn´t be too proud of its „freedom“, around hundred years ago people in Europe were covered at bathing places in a similar way.

One can only warn the people of France: don´t tear your society more apart by some totally unnecessary symbolic acts of cultural Imperialism!

I´ve written a lot about the US Power Elite and their internal divisions (http://tinyurl.com/zv32w7m), though they might only count about 100 people today. It appears that finally the Neocon faction of the Power Elite has taken control, especially since they took over the Democratic Party (http://tinyurl.com/zy4t6er), clearly signaled by the spearhead of the Neocons in that party: Hillary Clinton!

Nightmare One:

The Southern Hemisphere – the „Non-White World“ – Getting Independent

The US Power Elite (predominantly WASP, White Anglo-Saxon Protestants) would be rightfully called the „Deep State“ of the USA (http://tinyurl.com/ho2nz87). And this Deep State has become more and more ruthless over the time. They have brought nightmares over the Southern Hemisphere by installing brutal dictatorships (http://tinyurl.com/kkpvcf7) in their interest and waging bloody colonial wars, in the last one and a half decades especially with their „War on Terror“ (http://tinyurl.com/nrxxej5). One of their aims is to prevent countries of Africa, Latin America, Near and Middle East and Southern Asia from choosing their trade partners freely and from making use of their resources and industrialize, since that would mean a division of resources and allowing them their part of „consuming ecologic Earth capacity“. To fight this the US Power Elite is even ready to resort to Bio warfare:

US Power Elite Declared Bio War on the Southern Hemisphere, East Asia

and all Non-Western Countries in September 2000”: https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2016/03/13/us-power-elite-declared-war-on-the-southern-hemisphere-east-asia-and-all-non-western-countries-in-september-2000/

There is quite a number of people – among myself – who suspect that the „Deep State“ of the US could be behind some outbreaks of epidemics Africa (http://tinyurl.com/mwgjhoo) and Latin America (http://tinyurl.com/hfxvkq6). Furthermore it becomes more and more obvious that US „Intelligence“ was (and is) deeply involved in pushing fanatic Islamism (http://tinyurl.com/h7s3y7e) in order to counter the Socialist block (formerly) but more so to counter progressive Arab/Islamic nationalism that could develop their own regions full of resources (http://tinyurl.com/nu3zv9n). Unfortunately the US strategy seems to be relatively „successful“ in the desire to keep the South under control.

In fact the US lead Western policy has established a „Ring of Fire“ around Europe (http://tinyurl.com/gp48dhw) and European governments have been so stupid for a long time to lend a helping hand to „Big Brother“ in doing so. In fact this ring of fire stretches from Libya throughout Africa (http://tinyurl.com/le2hlpx) over Near and Middle East, the Balkans up to the Ukraine. Actually one gets the impression that the fire burns into Europe with Terror (http://tinyurl.com/zrwrk3k) adding also together with the refugee crisis to the financial problems threatening to blow even the EU up. Is the US having a hand also in this dramatic development? Absurd? Weakening their allies/vassals? We have to have a look at further geo-political challenges the US Power Elite is facing.

The Role of the European Union and the Changes in it

In the perception of many people at the core of the European Union´s history stands the French German relationship, and not without reason. Long Nazi-German occupation during WW II has humiliated France (and saw a lot of collaboration on the French side). The more it might astonish how relatively fast France and the Western part of Germany (Federal Republic of Germany) developed some sort of neighborly closeness and somehow friendship in post war times under De Gaulle and Adenauer.

Not only the war tired youth gave additional impulses but a strong part did the hysteria about the (not real) danger of a Soviet invasion and the cold war. France was soon stripped off his official colonial empire (as happened to the Germans with theirs after WW I) though keeping (a disastrous) dominance in many of its former colonies. The war torn countries saw a close cooperation (also with other smaller countries) in basic industrial fields as favorable (German: „Montan Union“). The members of this European Coal and Steel Community ‚ECSC‘ (“ the six“: Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and West Germany) joined the EEC, the competing body  in Europe became the “European Free Trade Association” ( EFTA). As much as European powers (and the US) wanted the BRD to be enshrined in supranational structures France was resisting to be too much absorbed by such developments. Likewise France was member of NATO (French: OTAN) but did not integrate into the military structures and built its own “Force de frappe”.

The other side of the story is that the EU and its predecessors were also a means to keep the (West)-European allies/vassals under extended US control (http://tinyurl.com/zhocuew). And especially by the close French-German relationship the French with their desire for „independence“ as well as Germany could be better controlled being „bound together“ (not to forget that the German „Intelligence“ agencies were via old Nazis under full US control)

The EU has also become a means of US-lead Western expansion into East Europe and the former domain of the Soviet Union and later Russia, culminating in the Ukraine Crisis.

But there are changes in the US-European relationship. After World War II the roles were clear: the United States of America being the „Workbench of the World“ (http://tinyurl.com/pqp2mpp), creating more than half of World´s GDP, were the master, the war stricken West European countries the „clients“. With the vast de-industrialization of the US (and the UK) in the last decades and the turning to mostly finance-capitalist activities the European Union has become an enormous industrial power, quite ahead of the US. As problematic as the construction of the Euro is, it has become a dangerous competing currency for the Dollar.

And now we should look at the second nightmare of the US Power Elite, probably for them even much more frightening than the first one.

Nightmare Two, Most Troublesome:

The Iron Silk Road, the AIIB and the Eurasian Cooperation

China is actually supposed to bypass the US economically by 2018 (http://tinyurl.com/gr8z842), if one takes into consideration that many of the processes within the USA contributing to the GDP are somehow of „virtual“ nature, China´s real economic power might already be greater. Russia has to a certain extend recovered from the catastrophes linked to the collapse of the USSR. Both countries are in the BRICS „club“ (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). China and Russia are eager to strengthen the Eurasian economic cooperation. This is also manifested in the Iron Silk Road, the railway connection from China to West Europe, now only used for goods (http://tinyurl.com/hpz6cra). In connection to this and moreover important is the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), which is also threatening to compete with the World bank. This is probably the greatest nightmare for the US Power Elite.

asian-infrastructure-investment-bank

A look at the map showing the countries participating in it makes the US anger and fear understandable. In fact European industrial capital could benefit a lot from such an intensified cooperation developing the center of the Eurasian double continent. It opens a very peaceful mutual cooperation. Now one must know that the US Power Elite has taken over – with some regional modification – the ideas of Sir Halford John Mackinder, a British Geographer and political analyst having formulated the „Heartland Theory”. Quote:

Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland; Who rules the Heartland commands the World Island; Who rules the World Island commands the World.

http://www.indrastra.com/2016/06/PAPER-Heartland-Theory-of-Mackinder-Relevancy-in-Central-Asia-Geopolitics-002-06-2016-0043.html

How far this goes shows a view on the way the US Military High Commands for the various regions of this World are organized:

us-military-commands

In fact the US High Command for the region in the center of the old tri-continent Asia, Europe, Africa, is called US CENTCOM, Central US Military High Command, (http://tinyurl.com/jjowlkc). Under normal circumstances one would expect a big power – if so arrogant anyway to divide the World into sections for “colonial” military organization – to name the region of their own country as “CENTCOM”.

The concept of the Eurasian cooperation and the Iron Silk Road with the AIIB stands directly in opposition of the US Power Elite´s will to control the World by controlling the “Heartland”. Even the United Kingdom like many European countries is participating (http://tinyurl.com/zkk8746) in the AIIB. Also the old US ally Turkey has dared to join the Silk Road project and the AIIB. Could that have been a reason for a “US hand” in the coup attempt against Erdogan (http://tinyurl.com/gpp5fch)? And most of Europe, practically all of the EU involved in the Eurasian project, reason enough for US politics to take action?!

As one of the last attempts to get the EU “in line” is to be seen in the US efforts to get the EU into the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). As the US Ambassador with the EU has bluntly stated: “We need this deal to help solidify further the transatlantic alliance, to provide an economic equivalent to NATO “ (http://tinyurl.com/zoo9owg).

But resistance against TTIP and CETA (the Canadian-European equivalent) in Europe is growing rapidly, especially also in France. It looks as if it might (hopefully) not happen.

So, what if the US Power Elite has come to the conclusion: it´s time to blow up what we´ve built to control Europe better, since it has developed a dynamics which is now an obstacle to our world dominating strategy? A Europe pushed into complicated conflicts among the various states as well as within the respective societies might also be easier prevented from slipping into a Eurasian cooperation and they might always call „Big Brother“ to mediate in their quarrels. And also to this perspective fits the US strategy (in which stupid European governments have helped again and again) to create a „Ring of Fire“ around Europe from Libya through Africa and Near & Middle East to the Ukraine, moving millions of people (miserable poor victims of the warmongers) into Europe and creating enormous problems and conflicts between European states as well as within the European societies. As far as this aspect is concerned, this is my suspicion since quite some time.

So it might be that the “Deep State” of the US has come to the conclusion: what we can not control, we have to destroy! Thus the “European Project” might have died for the US.

And we have a „Neocon“ “crown witness” to this strategic concept, George Friedman, founder of Stratfor (retired from it 2015), presenting a speech at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeLu_yyz3tc

After all the „Deep State“ within the USA (http://tinyurl.com/ho2nz87) is famous for „False Flag attacks“, often perpetrated by Operation Gladio. A famous blueprint is Operation Northwoods, a project from the early 60ties for terror attacks on US targets outside and inside the US to be blamed on Cuba as a pretext for a full scale invasion of the hated country. It was stopped by Kennedy, which he didn´t survive long (http://tinyurl.com/ndzt8ho). After all the most famous False Flag is the event which the Genius James Corbett presented in five Minutes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgrunnLcG9Q

Maybe US politics takes a last measure to frighten especially France and Germany by Terror „to order“. That´s why one should think into „all directions“ when it comes to the tragic terror attacks and otherwise tragic or painful events hitting the two countries:

My articles on the USA: https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2014/02/13/list-of-my-articles-on-the-usa/

The fact that France and Germany share the same fate of being Terror stricken could be a reason to look at the relation between the two countries, which should be done here.

de-gaulle-and-adenauer

Coming (in case of Germany partly) from one mediaeval state, Charlemagne´s Empire, which was split after his son´s death, the relationship of the two countries saw many conflicts, which turned to be more complicated with the rise of Prussia which didn´t come from that common heritage.

The French Revolution was very ambivalent for the relation in as far as it raised democratic hopes in some German circles which were widely liquidated during French occupation of great parts of Germany by Napoleon. This again strengthened tendencies for German unity, which was finally the result of the Prussian led victory of German states against France in 1871, a triumph which left deep scares in France´s collective memory.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/France%E2%80%93Germany_relations

Both World Wars left France against Germany victorious but only because of strong Anglo-Saxon support. Long Nazi-German occupation during WW II has humiliated France (and saw a lot of collaboration on the French side). The more it might astonish how relatively fast France and the Western part of Germany (Bundesrepublik Deutschland) developed some sort of neighborly closeness and somehow friendship in post war times under De Gaulle and Adenauer. Not only the war tired youth gave additional impulses but a strong part did the hysteria about the (not real) danger of a Soviet invasion and the cold war. France was stripped off his official colonial empire (as happened to the Germans with theirs after WW I) though keeping (a disastrous) dominance in its former colonies.

France tried to keep close control especially of its former African colonies, to part of them (especially Togo) and their colonial henchmen German conservatives like Franz Josef had close links, at times combined with economic interests of Strauß´s entourage.

Germany and France had close military cooperation which was even directed at nuclear efforts (Strauß being Minister of Defense – 1956 to 1962 – was also very eager to get a nuclear option not purely based on the US, but were so in the end). By and large the German French relationship was complicated because of France being very skeptical about the US whereas Germany was depending on the US to a high degree.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/France%E2%80%93United_States_relations

The end of the cold war and the collapse of the Soviet bloc confronted France with the reunion of the two German states which was only tolerated (with pains as well by Thatcher´s GB but supported by the US) with the perspective of Germany being enshrined in a new European currency: the Euro (which GB didn´t join).

1990 to 1994 saw a very different approach of France and Germany to an African topic. France (surely out of own interest and a strategy still independent from the US) helped 1990 to rebuke the terrorist attack of Kagame/Museveni´s US backed invasion attempt into Rwanda, German polititians were on the opposite helpful in preparing and covering the second invasion of the terrorist RPF into Rwanda and the horror which followed for the DR Congo by Uganda´s and Kagame-Rwanda´s invasions (http://tinyurl.com/kkpvcf7).

In the US invasion of 2003 into Iraq based on lies France and Germany acted together trying to keep them out of that act against international law.

Things turned almost fundamentally with Sarkozy coming to office. Whereas Germany´s capital interests (still mostly based on production and the US turning more and more to finance capitalism) differed so much from the US that some reservation towards the US are to be detected France being obviously sceptical of Germany´s growing economic power turned more towards the US. France turned back to the integrated NATO Command.

When Libya was attacked by the US and NATO, Germany didn´t support the „No Fly Zone“ in the UN whereas France together with GB were in total support. After Hollande came to office the integration into the US imperial designs continued which is very obvious in case of Syria and Mali. Possibly Germany has been scared into a more supportive position by obvious „False Flag“ manifested in the Bag with the not exploding bomb found at Bonn Main Station (2012). This was the reminder to the German government by the US: „Boys and Girl, think of how nicely German Governments were behaving when they were still sitting in Bonn!“ (https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2012/12/16/usa-unser-groser-bruder-und-willst-du-nicht-mein-bruder-sein/).

It is obvious: the French German relationship can only be understood to the full extend in context of the triangle France-US-Germany and from the question whether French and German national interests contrasting to US interests had to manifest themselves. This played an important role also in the Ukrainian crisis coming from the aggressive expansion of NATO to the East.

The determination of France and Germany to join with Russia in the efforts to calm down the Ukraine conflict, resulted in the Minsk II agreement. The leaders of Belarus, Russia, Germany, France, and Ukraine had met from 11th to 12th February 2015 – without the US being invited! After that was finalized the British Prime Minister Cameron was to be seen in front of a camera almost foaming from anger and indicating the Anglo-American fury about those efforts. In deed France and Germany had come to the conclusion that the Ukraine conflict wasn´t in Europe´s best interest (after having helped the US to start the mess). How important the Ukraine „game“ is, see the Neocon Think Tank man George Friedman on the Ukraine:

Don´t mind the German subtitles!

So seeing the reactions of Cameron I made the prediction: „nasty things will come to France and Germany!“

My articles on the USA: https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2014/02/13/list-of-my-articles-on-the-usa/

As I have written a few days ago I was highly astonished that the US Empire, truly spoken the US Power Elite, „allowed“ the outcome of the Brexit-Vote (http://tinyurl.com/zkk8746). I had to reassess the case. I had simply thought that the grip of the US Power Elite on the UK is almost total, as one could think seeing the UK often acting as the prolonged arm of the US in the European Union. And moreover the US has done a lot to make the EU a vassal union for their interest. This lead to my analytical mistake about a strong US interest to prevent the Brexit.

paul-craig-roberts

Paul Craig Roberts

Obviously Paul Craig Roberts is still on that line.

He is convinced that this previous US strategy of the EU for better control by „Big Brother“ is continuing till today and believes that would mean that Washington opposes the Brexit,

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/06/22/brexit-what-is-it-about-paul-craig-roberts/:

Opposition to Brexit is based on two powerful interests of Washington.

One is the interests of the New York banks and Wall Street to eliminate the UK as a financial center competitor. This blatant fact has escaped the notice of the City and the Bank of England.“

And this was also the fact that escaped me. But Roberts is convinced that the US Power Elite and Wallstreet trust on the pressure by the EU on the UK to adopt the Euro:

In order to trick the UK into joining the EU, the British were given special privileges. However, these privileges cannot last forever. The EU process is one of political integration. As I reported years ago, Jean-Claude Trichet, at that time the president of the European Central Bank, said that to complete the political integration of Europe, the fiscal policies of member states would be centralized. It is impossible to centralize fiscal policies if the UK is an independent financial center with its own central bank and currency.“

It might quite well have been that Cameron thought there would be a narrow victory for the „stay inside“ option which would make sure to be saved from such pressure.

Where I think Roberts goes totally wrong is the belief that the US Power Elite wants to keep the EU „safe“:

The other powerful interest is the interest of Washington to prevent one country’s exit from leading to the exit of other countries. As CIA documents found in the US National Archives make clear, the EU was a CIA initiative, the purpose of which is to make it easy for Washington to exercise political control over Europe. It is much easier for Washington to control the EU than 28 separate countries. Moreover, if the EU unravels, so likely would NATO, which is the necessary cover for Washington’s aggression.“

As true as the fact is, that those days the CIA had a strong hand in the European unification, combined with this is Roberts´ belief that the erosion of the EU would lead to the failing of NATO and thus reduce the danger of a big US lead war. In deed the crumbling of NATO would be an advantage for mankind and a step to peace. But it is questionable whether those things are really linked. We shouldn´t forget that Turkey and Greece were both NATO members even at a time when there were enormous tensions between them (on which the US capitalized).

With this expectation he is surely right,

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/06/24/the-brexit-vote-paul-craig-roberts/:

Here is what the British can likely expect: The Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, Bank of Japan, and George Soros will conspire to attack the British pound, driving it down and terrorizing the British economy.“

It must have slipped him that this is made easy by the Brexit-Vote´s outcome, weakening the City of London. Moreover the breaking away of Scotland from the UK is getting more likely which would convert Great Britain into „Small Britain“.

And also seemingly Roberts is not fully aware of this: with the large scale deindustrialization of the US as well as the UK continental Europe is still a strong center of Industry, having a natural tendency to follow its own interest in a Eurasian cooperation on the long run. And the Brits had done something quite ugly (in the eyes of the US Power Elite) they joined the China-backed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) which is also connected to the monumental project of the „Iron Silk Road“, meant to deepen cooperation between China, Russia and Europe:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/banksandfinance/11476533/Joining-Chinas-World-Bank-is-in-UKs-national-interest-depsite-Washington-anger.html

And likewise important, the Euro – true, if the UK would be forced into would possibly weaken the City of London, but only if – has developed into a great „burden“ to the US being a really competing currency.

So, what if the US Power Elite has come to the conclusion: it´s time to blow up what we´ve built to control Europe better, since it has developed a dynamics which is now an obstacle to our world dominating strategy? A Europe pushed into complicated conflicts among the various states might also be easier prevented from slipping into a Eurasian cooperation and they might always call „Big Brother“ to mediate in their quarrels. And to this perspective fits the US strategy (in which stupid European governments have helped again and again) to create a „Ring of Fire“ around Europe from Libya through Africa and Near & Middle East to the Ukraine, moving millions of people (miserable poor victims of the warmongers) into Europe and creating enormous problems and conflicts between European states as well as within the European societies. As far as this aspect is concerned, this is my suspicion since quite some time.

And we have a „Neocon Crown Witness“ to this strategic concept, George Friedman, founder of Stratfor (retired from it 2015), presenting a speech at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeLu_yyz3tc

george-friedman

George Friedman

That man is presenting the essence of his book „Flashpoints Europe“ (http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/219860/flashpoints-by-george-friedman/9780307951137/). In the book as well as in his speech at the Chicago Council he outlines „future developments“ in Europe in a way as if this would come out of Europe itself, but in deed he´s presenting what the US Power Elite has „in the pipe“ for Europe. Besides he dwells on the fact that his Jewish family survived the terrible Nazi occupation of East Europe to attribute more moral authority to his presentation but deflates that totally by showing a cynic that exposes the complete absence of moral consequences from that sad history. This is demonstrated especially by praising Reagan´s concept of making countries (like Iran and Iraq) fighting and people kill each other (hear him at the Chicago Council).

So, if you hear this staunch Neocon Friedman, you know at which point the US Power Elite (now clearly dominated by the Neocons, even in the Democratic Party – demonstrated by their spearhead Hillary Clinton, http://tinyurl.com/zy4t6er) has reached: Blow the EU up!

So, I fear this great Analyst Paul Craig Roberts might still go very wrong in his assessment of US politics towards Brexit and towards US strategy for Europe!
