US “Schizophrenia” is the Symptom of War Within the US Power Elite

A few weeks ago Trump_and_Putin_met, indicating a more constructive approach by the US Administration towards bilateral issues with Russia. Now the sanction-regime against Russia is again_to_be_expanded, based on the bogus “Skripal_Case”, it might inflict economic_sufferings_on_Russia for some time. Is this a case of schizophrenia? We have to be careful with medical, psychological or psychiatric comparisons if countries, even if Governments or Power Elites are concerned.

No doubt, the US Power Elite is united in its desire for world domination as well as in its nightmares. But there are deep splits within the US Power Elite, as analyzed in this previous article. The splits concern strategies and tactics to gain the desired world domination and the way to deal with the US Power Elite´s nightmare_of_the_Eurasian_Cooperation. In a simple formulation: whom to put on top of the „Eating List“, who comes second, who third. The different revenues of different parts of the Power Elite play an important role as well. The deep split surfaced also some years ago under the Obama Administration concerning the option_of_an_Iran_war (which Israel is very eager to wage).

The fact that Trump is still in office and even alive despite the permanent fire on him by US politicians and the mainstream media shows that he might also have a faction of the Power Elite behind him, indicated for example by his close contact with Kissinger (who stands for the school of „Realism“ within the Power Elite). But he had to compromise a lot with the Neocons, shown by inclusion of the_notorious_Neocon_Bolton (representing the Deep State´s long_enmity_toward_the_people_of_Iran) and the like into US Government. And an important part of the British Power Elite as well as Israel are „on_his_neck“.

When it comes to Iran, Trump´s announcement „away from regime change wars“ is also forgotten, likewise in the case of Venezuela and Nicaragua.

The fact is: as for the most important field of US politics, the US-Russian relation, including the danger of a military confrontation that could lead to mankind´s extinction, US policy seems paralyzed. The Neocon faction might know on one side (and they are bypassing the US President many times via their „Deep_State“ apparatus) that they cannot win an open military confrontation with Russia, so what is on their agenda is forcing Russia – and China – on their knees by an arms race (which they might have lost already) in combination with parts of the „Soft Power“ faction and their economic war by infiltration and sanctions. And the Neocons´ henchmen like Bolton are right within the Government.

The weakest „opponent“ with respect to the feared „Eurasian Cooperation“ is Europe, and they will attack Europe on various levels in which Trump and his administration seems willing to help a lot. Trump has already declared_economic_war_against_Europe.

Europe must know it could quite be on top of the „Eating List“ in the sense that the US Power will try to blow the ill constructed EU with the ill constructed Euro (which is nevertheless a „dangerous“ competing currency) up! The battle_is_on! Possibly Europe_may_be_the_main_front_of_the_hybrid_war.

It is up to the real Left in Europe to expose what is going on and to take the chance to push for a real socialist movement against Trans-Atlantic domination, against the imperial destruction of Europe´s surrounding, against the final expropriation of the European masses and against the ecologic destruction of this world!

Die US-Schizophrenie ist Symptom des Krieges innerhalb der US-Machtelite

Vor ein paar Wochen trafen_sich_Trump_und_Putin und dies deutete auf eine konstruktivere Haltung der US-Regierung gegenüber bilateralen Fragen mit Russland hin. Jetzt soll das Sanktionsregime_gegen_Russland_erneut_ausgeweitet werden, unter dem lächerlichen Vorwand_des_Skripal_Falles. Ist das ein Fall von Schizophrenie? Wir müssen mit medizinischen, psychologischen oder psychiatrischen Einschätzungen aber sehr vorsichtig sein, wenn es sich um Länder, um Regierungen oder um Machteliten handelt.

Zweifellos ist die US-Machtelite in ihrem Streben nach Weltherrschaft wie auch in_ihrem_Albtraum, nämlich der angestrebten „Eurasischen Kooperation, vereint. Aber es gibt tiefe Spaltungen innerhalb der US-Machtelite, wie sie in diesem früheren Artikel_analysiert_wurden. Die Spaltungen betreffen Strategien und Taktiken, um die gewünschte Weltherrschaft und den Umgang mit dem Alptraum zu erreichen. In einer einfachen Formulierung: wen soll man an erster Stelle auf den „Speiseplan“ setzen, wer kommt als zweiter, wer als dritter. Die unterschiedlichen Revenuen der verschiedenen Teile der Machtelite spielen ebenfalls eine wichtige Rolle. Die tiefe Spaltung tauchte auch vor einigen Jahren unter der Obama-Regierung bezüglich der Option eines Iran-Krieges auf (den Israel unbedingt will).

Die Tatsache, dass Trump trotz des permanenten Feuers von US-Politikern und den Mainstream-Medien immer noch im Amt ist (und lebt), zeigt, dass er wohl auch eine Fraktion der Machtelite hinter sich hat, wie durch seinen engen_Kontakt_zu_Kissinger, der für die Schule des „Realismus“ innerhalb der Machtelite steht, zu vermuten ist. Kissinger mag Trump zu_dieser_Strategie_geraten_haben.

Aber er musste aber viele Kompromisse mit den Neocons eingehen, was durch die Aufnahme von Bolton (der_unbedingt_Krieg_gegen_den_Iran_will) und seinesgleichen in die US-Regierung deutlich wird. Und ein wichtiger Teil der britischen Machtelite sowie Israel „sitzen ihm im Nacken“, besonders Netanyahu_will_Krieg_gegen_den_Iran.

Auch in Bezug auf den Iran ist Trumps Ankündigung „weg von Regime-Change-Kriegen“ ebenso vergessen wie_zu_Venezuela und Nicaragua.

Fakt ist: Was das wichtigste Feld der US-Politik betrifft, die amerikanisch-russischen Beziehungen, einschließlich der Gefahr einer militärischen Konfrontation, die zum Aussterben der Menschheit führen könnte, scheint die US-Politik faktisch gelähmt zu sein. Die neokonservative Fraktion wird auf der einen Seite (und sie umgehen den US-Präsidenten viele Male über ihren „Deep State“-Apparat) wissen, dass man eine offene militärische Konfrontation mit Russland nicht_gewinnen_kann. Was auf ihrer Agenda steht, ist der Versuch, Russland – und China – durch ein weiteres Wettrüsten (das sie aber schon verloren haben könnten) auf die Knie zu zwingen, in Verbindung mit Teilen der „Soft Power“ -Fraktion und ihrem Wirtschaftskrieg durch Infiltration und Sanktionen. Und die Schergen der Neocons wie Bolton sind mitten in der Regierung.

Der schwächste „Gegner“ in Bezug auf die gefürchtete „eurasische Kooperation“ ist Europa, und sie werden Europa auf verschiedenen Ebenen angreifen, wobei Trump und seine Administration sicher gar nicht alles wissen, was_der_Tiefe_Staat_anstellt, aber bereit sind, sich intensiv zu beteiligen.

Europa muss wissen, dass es ganz oben auf dem „Speisplan“ stehen könnte, in dem Sinne, dass die US-Regierung versuchen wird, die schlecht konstruierte EU mit dem schlecht konstruierten Euro (der dennoch eine „gefährliche“ Konkurrenzwährung ist) zu_sprengen! Die letzten 17 Jahre mit dem „Krieg gegen den Terror“ sind in_hohem_Grade_zu_Lasten_Europas gelaufen.

Es liegt an der wirklichen Linken in Europa, zu enthüllen, was vor sich geht, und die Chance zu ergreifen, eine echte sozialistische Bewegung gegen die transatlantische Vorherrschaft, gegen die imperiale Zerstörung der europäischen Umgebung, gegen die endgültige Enteignung der Masse der Europäer und gegen die ökologische Zerstörung dieser Welt anzuführen!

The Presidents of the two militarily most powerful – and antagonistic- countries, together holding about ninety percent of world´s nuclear armament, meet and US politicians as well as European politicians are going wild instead of jubilating that the dangers of a “nuclear Armageddon” are getting reduced. In the US the President is blamed for not being loyal to its secret services, which try to smear him with absurd “Russia-Gate” accusations including accusations_of_treason (it should not be forgotten into how many elections_abroad_the_US_have_interfered) One might presume that loyalty has to go the other way round. A German “political analyst”, Elmar Thevesen, is even calling_for_coup against Trump. Permanent fire against a US President from domestic political circles as well as from close allies of this intensity the world has hardly ever seen. Is this only “Bowling for Madness”, or is there more behind?

Digging a bit deeper

The demand that the President should be loyal to his secret services which provided US Presidents many a times with false information expose the fact that a US President is far from being “the most powerful man on Earth”, but is supposed to be a puppet of the “Deep_State”. Strange enough (or not really) is that Trump is not accused of “Israel Gate”, though real “Israel_Firsters” like Sheldon_Adelson led Trump to collusions that allowed Netanyahu to boast that he_made_Trump_dump_the_Iran_Deal (leaving aside that Trump´s son in law is close to Netanyahu)!

Actually Trump (leaving also aside his pimp like character and hypertrophic ego) started his campaign with three important points, which even attracted left leaning people (who were aware of Clinton´s snake like character). Point one was his declared desire for détente with Russia, point two was his announced desire to get away from Regime-Change wars. Point three was the aim of reconstructing the industrial basis of the US.

All this wasn´t really based on any altruistic trait, but he was with all his ignorance clever enough to see that it is not desirable to survive a nuclear war (risked by the Neocons´ war games) in a bunker to find a destroyed world afterwards. He saw also how expensive the permanent wars are getting for the US society and those ones who might vote for him. Well, as for point three, it included putting the “Free Trade Religion” into question. The last aspect would have been more important for the Southern Hemisphere, since the ruling class of the US profits a lot from Free Trade (and wanted to force TTIP on the EU).

But he realized soon that he´d face a deadly danger from the side of the Neocons and the Deep State. So he became fully determined to slip under Israel´s and MOSSAD´s protection by making Israel´s regional agenda his own. That might also have strengthened his plan for détente with Russia since Israel´s power elite harbors some dreams of getting Russia on its side concerning the limitation of Iran´s influence in Syria (which_might_be_really_unrealistic).

Strange that many European_politicians_got_wild first over his plan to include Russia again into the G7 to become again G8. But, maybe they are very well aware that the real power is still held by the Neocons! But, maybe the whole affair is more complicated, maybe Trump could in the end become the US Power Elite´s “Plan_B”? Or are there more fractions within the US Power Elite and he might have some higher ranking support additional to the “Israel connection”? We might have to even dig deeper.

Digging to the Ground

The late German Professor Krysmanski_drew_a_fitting_picture of the Power Elite having gone from the general “Capitalist Class” to a super concentrated tiny number of the “Super Rich” (in money and power) forming almost feudalist circles. Since the days of Eisenhower already warning of the “Military_Industrial_Complex” this process has even gone further. That “Super Class” (not in number but in power) is united in the desire for world control. But they still have different revenues and prefer different strategies and tactics to that end.

Also the Super Rich need “intellectual servants” which might even be more important than the “functional Elite”. There are the “Think Tanks” being of great importance. They formed two different schools, the openly brutal “Neoconservatives” (members of them ironically originally coming from more left leaning circles), for example the “Project_For_The_New_American_Century”, and the more manipulative school of “Soft Power”. They liked to have “things done by others”, counting more on economic force and political infiltration.

Under Obama´s Presidency there was almost a hidden war_about_the_option_of_an_Iran_war. During the last years the Neocons gained more and more power, partly taking over the Democratic Party (formerly more associated with the “Soft Power”) especially through their “spear_head” Hillary Clinton.

Now, there might still be a third though smaller faction within the US Power Elite coming more from the classical industrial sector and from “Real Estate”. In part of that section more “realistic” conceptions about the need for an industrial basis for the US and some old tendencies from US “Isolationism” might have survived. No doubt that that section is also connected to older (dangerous) concepts of the US society and might have links to “near fascist” and racist anti-left mobsters. But there might well be some support from that side for Trump (despite strong tendencies among them for “Anti-Judaism”). Anyway, that section might find it easier to have an own view of a presently more multi-polar world (which doesn´t mean they would reject the chance for total world domination – in the end!).

Different Factions of the US Power Elite Concerning Strategy and Tactics – One Night Mare

The “real_nightmare” of almost all of the US Power Elite – which is following the concepts of the British geographer Halford_Mackinder and his “Heartland_Theory” – is the chance of the “Eurasian Cooperation” pushed by China and Russia, manifested in the “Iron Silk Road”, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the efforts especially on the side of the BRICS states to break away from the oil-dollar connection. This project of the Eurasian Cooperation is of no little attraction also to parts of European Capital. That is why the US is also somehow “waging war against the EU”. The “Ring of Fire” around Europe from Libya through Africa and Middle East into the Ukraine is also meant as a barrier against European participation in the Eurasian Cooperation.

The biggest part of the US Power Elite is dreaming of a repetition. That is the repetition of the way the US forced the Soviet Union to its knees by arms race. They want to do this with Russia and China – including all risks of WW III and a nuclear Armageddon.

Maybe Trump´s Backers Want to Revive Another old Concept

Maybe Trump really first and foremost sees the deadly dangers from a military confrontation with Russia (endangering his and his family´s life as well). But maybe his backers might include people having a real geo-strategic thinking who really have a strategy directed towards that nightmare of a Eurasian Cooperation. No doubt, generally unprincipled Trump could be directed by advisers without himself even seeing the full picture. That section of his backers could try to really make him “Plan_B” and then “sell” it also to more of the US Power Elite.

For the first part of the Cold War the US were confronted with an alliance between the Soviet Union and China. This alliance was surely burdened by the contradictions over who should lead the “Socialist Bloc” to victory. Should it be Russia (which had colonized great parts of East Asia) or China with its thousands of years old culture, having again come to its feet by massive support from the Soviet Union (also damaging Chinese pride). Ideological splits came with Khrushchew´s policy of “De-Stalinization” and SU´s policy of “peaceful coexistence”, thus by different treatment on the side of the US other than the US-treatment of China those days. All lead to the dramatic “Sino-Soviet_split”. There were a number of crisis and even military confrontations in 1969. But the US might have had a covert hand also in firing contradictions.

Anyway, Nixon then saw the chance to make the split final by approaching China and leaving the SU aside. And Milton_Friedman did a lot to “infect” China with Capitalism in a way making it more “revisionist” than China had accused the SU of being previously. Possibly part of Trump´s backers dream of that repetition, but instead of turning now to China (now the economically stronger part of the Russia-China alliance and world´s second biggest economy) turning to Russia in a more “constructive way” (as the split between China and Russia started those days) trying to alienate Russia from China. They could likewise be dreaming to put Europe (where the governments were too much of vassals to take the chance of more closeness with Russia in time) under more “psychological” pressure and busy Europe even more with itself than “Brexit” did already.

Now Trump´s backers might see the chance to make him the real “Plan B” of greater parts of the US Power Elite. But Trump will have to compromise especially with the Neocons in many other ways, possibly including a war against Iran which might as well lead to a much more “extended war theatre” that could lead to an even greater conflict.

Strategy: “Fragmentation” of the “Old World”

European Politics in Disarray

It appears that the dominant factions of the US Power Elite have such a strong grip on the European Elites that those ones are not even able to follow national (Capitalist) interest, much less the interest of the “normal people” in peace and a more just society. The “Deep State” of the US extends into the deep state of European countries, particular Germany. The history of the “Gladio Network” should be well known by now. And there might be efforts to create more conflicts not only between European states, but also government crisis and social conflicts within the various European countries. It should be noticed that former Trump advisor Steve Bannon (surely belonging to the more strategically oriented Trump backer circles) will try to create more far_right_wing_movements in Europe. We might see more clashes between Soros inspired pseudo-Green circles (calling for “open borders for all”) and rightist (or fascist) movements, together being a cover up for the fundamental problems.

What “common” People have to know

We´re living in the age of “psychological_fragmentation”. Wild gone globalized US lead neoliberal “Super-Capitalism” is about to drive humanity at least to part extinction. Anyone who wants a better world for the majority of mankind has to know: we have to wage a three front struggle against this.

One front is the peace-question, the second front is the front for socio-economic justice and the third front is the ecological question (including climate). All these problems are closely interconnected. As long as the various forces in this struggle are fragmented (and been played one against the other) there is zero chance. The highly industrialized countries have a key role in the global development. Uprising against the capitalist forces in this world region is most important.

As long as people struggling for humanity just count on “Western Democracy”, their struggle is designed to fail. We´re no more living in a Democracy, but rather in a “Demoncracy”. Extended social upheaval is necessary and organizing independently from the existing political parties. At present the peace struggle is central but has to include the two other fronts.

For Europe it is important to have as a first step a “Revolution_against_US-dominace” and come to sound terms with Russia and China. The US has to be prevented from creating more fire in Europe´s surrounding. Likewise France and Britain have to be confronted for their strong participation in that “Ring of Fire” (especially_France_being_deeply_involved_into_the_plunder_of_Africa). If this “game” goes on the masses suffering from that onslaught in Europe´s surrounding will not be prevented from coming to the “eye of the hurricane” (Europe), dreaming of being more safe there, but possibly unwillingly creating open Fascism there.

Irrespective whether Trump survives the plans of his backers or whether he´ll be substituted by Vice President Pence or any other puppet of this or that faction of the US Power Elite, Capitalism has reached a stage, where humanity´s survival is massively at stake.

Europe: There Will be no Peace and no Social Progress Without a Revolution Against US Dominace!

It must be clearly said again: there will be no social progress and no peace in Europe without a revolution against the US dominance!

Hear Paul_Craig_Roberts, former United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy in the Reagan administration about the role of the USA in the world:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihCVPVw2cm0

US politics is not based on Democracy, but dominated by the „Deep_State“, the real Power Elite of the US. That Power Elite is driven by the desire for World dominance and driven by their nightmares! Some of their Neocon Think Tank people like the cynic George_Friedman say very openly what they have in mind with Europe.

Hard time for Europe and particularly Germany to wake up and to see clearly:

No Peace and no Social Progress Without a Revolution Against US Dominace!

Deutschland, Europa: es wird keinen Frieden und keinen sozialen Fortschritt ohne eine Revolution gegen die US-Dominanz geben!

Es soll noch einmal in aller Klarheit gesagt werden: ohne eine Revolution gegen die US-Dominanz wird es keinen sozialen Fortschritt und keinen Frieden in Europa geben! Leider wollen viele Politiker in diesem Lande das offenbar nicht begreifen. Zu den wenigen Klarsichtigen gehören Oskar_Lafontaine:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7VF36v3LOc

und Sahra Wagenknecht:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oz-RS8OQuMY

Einen seltenen Talkshow-Glücksfall gab es, als der General a. D. Kujat und der Orient-Spezialist Prof. Günther Meyer in der Phönix-Runde den „personifizierten Inkompetenzen“ zu Syrien „die Karten legten“:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_dzdl_2xy8

Es braucht dringend mehr Aufrechte und Klarsichtige, die die Nebelwände der Mainstream-Medien zerreißen. Wenn man in Europa nicht aufwacht, wird der „Krieg_gegen_den_Terror“ (der tatsächlich ein Terrorkrieg gegen den Süden und die Bürgerrechte ist) auch von europäischem Boden weitergehen, der einen Feuerring um Europa legt und immer mehr Flüchtlingsströme in Bewegung setzen. Bei kleinster „Widersetzlichkeit“ kann gegen Europa die „Schock-Strategie“ angewandt und „hässliche Ereignisse inszeniert werden, wenn die Agenten des US-Imperiums nicht aus ihren Funktionen entfernt werden.

Wie die US-Machtelite auf Europa schaut, das kann man zum Beispiel von dem Neocon „Think-Tanker“ George Friedman erfahren:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcj8xN2UDKc

Höchste Zeit, dass wir es lernen:

Kein Frieden und kein Fortschritt ohne Revolution gegen die US-Dominanz!

Libyan Slavery: a Day of Fury in Berlin!

Yesterday a protest demonstration against the terrible sufferings inflicted on African migrants and excesses_of_slavery in Libya was held by Germany´s Black_Community in front of the Libyan embassy in Berlin. Several hundred people, members of the African community (from Berlin and Hamburg), Afro-Germans and German supporters expressed their anger and fury about the events in Libya. Unfortunately some people were obviously more interested in staging themselves and made the organization a bit difficult, but important contributions were given. The protests were disciplined and facing a relatively cooperative police. In all it was an impressive protest, though the event was after all confronting a Sturday-empty embassy. Luckily the US-American, French, British and German hands in the destruction of Libya which led to the disaster were mentioned. Possibly in the final analysis the protest should have been held in front of the US Embassy. We shouldn´t forget the “laughing_Lady”, crooked Hillary Clinton!

Is such a protest enough?

No doubt, such well based feelings of anger have to be expressed, but it would be bad if the relieve by shouting would be all. It is very clear, Colonialism_is_alive_and_still_going_strong! The US Empire – assisted by its foolish European vassals thus creating a “refugee crisis” for themself – is working hard to destroy all African independence and reduce Africa to resource-slavery, which “Happenings” like “G20_Africa_Partnership_Conference” will not make us forget. And_the_refugees_may_get_drowned! The inflicted destruction pushes also a dangerous “brain drain”. And it´s even going beyond that, US Power_Elite_declared_biowar_on_Africa!

Organization and Self Empowerment!

It should be obvious: Africa will not develop “with the West”, but only “against the West” taking into consideration the powers “that shouldn´t be” in the West! And “self victimization” wouldn´t help, likewise lamenting! The spirit of Lumumba, Nkrumah, Malcom X, Sankara and others has to return and be merged with further studies of the enemy, of self organization and economic self empowerment. Many Liberation movements stopped at official “Independence” and were neutralized after the “victory”, in which process surely the crumbling down of the East Block played an important role.

I remember an event in Berlin on the 29th August 2011 about the renaming of the “Gröbenufer” into “May_Ayim_Ufer”. In all the speeches no word was dropped about the those days ongoing Western war against Libya, which drove me mad. Today we can see the “success” of that war!

Symbolism and Fake Allies

In all these symbolic activities the German Green Party is always very active, but, “In the Libyan war, the Greens attacked the then Christian Democratic Union/Free Democratic Party government for not participating in the bombardment of the country. Last year, they were the strongest advocates of military intervention in Syria”, as “World_Socialist_Web_Site” describes.

It is hard to write – since I have no liking for those people – but maybe a whole number of xenophobes in Europe would be more reliable allies if they could be rightfully convinced that Europe´s help for the US lead destruction of Africa and Near and Middle East will confront them with migrant waves they can not dream of stopping!

And an important point is the general Peace Question. A common point of interest with broader sections of the German society would be to make them understand that for German interests it would be better to engage in the Eurasian Cooperation than in the develish destruction of Africa and Near East. Their “most important ally”, the US Power Elite, is not only the driving force in Africa´s destruction (eight_million_dead_in_DR_Congo_in_the_last_twenty_one_years), but also in the effort to make Europe the battle field of the mad warmongers war against Russia! Surely that necessary turn of German strategy would be the “nightmare_of_the_US_PowerElite”. Behind all this: excessive neoliberal globalized Capitalism!

After all, my dear African friends, there is a_long_struggle_ahead! Being 70 years old what I can do is exposing Imperialism and its hidden implications and agendas, and I will!

Libysche Sklaverei: ein Tag der Wut in Berlin!

Gestern, am Samstag, fand eine Protest-Demonstration vor der libyschen Botschaft in Berlin gegen die abscheulichen Exzesse des Menschenhandels in Libyen statt, veranstaltet von der Afrikanischen_Community in Deutschland. Afrikaner, Afrodeutsche und deutsche Unterstützer vornehmlich aus Berlin und Hamburg drückten ihren Zorn über die Ereignisse in Libyen aus. Es war eine eindrucksvolle Demonstration mit Hunderten von Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern, auch, wenn einige Leute die Organisation durch undiszipliniertes Verhalten nicht erleichterten. Die Demonstration verlief friedlich und die Polizei war relativ kooperativ.

Begrüßenswerterweise wurde die Rolle der USA, Frankreichs und Großbritanniens nicht unerwähnt gelassen, die durch den Krieg gegen Libyen die Katastrophe erzeugt haben. Dabei sei daran erinnert, dass die damalige Bundesregierung wenigstens bei der Abstimmung im Sicherheitsrat zur “Flugverbotszone” sich der Stimme enthalten hat, was ihr wohl eine “Erinnerung_des_grossen_Bruders” einbrachte. Letztendlich hätte man wohl vor der US-Botschaft demonstrieren sollen, man erinnere sich an Hillary Clintons Lachanfall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5g8kAvneeMo.

Auf jeden Fall war die Veranstaltung ein deutlicher Ausdruck allzu berechtigten Zornes.

Ist das alles genug?

Aber reicht es, seine Wut lautstark vor einer “Samstags-leeren” libyschen Botschaft auszudrücken? Es wäre bei Weitem zu wenig. Keine Frage, der_Kolonialismus_lebt_und_tobt_weiter! Auch Veranstaltungen wie die “G20_Afrika-Konferenz” können nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen. Der Westen gibt sich gerne als “Feuerwehr” aus und ist tatsächlich der Brandstifter! Die angebliche “Bekämpfung der_Fluchtursachen“ ist eine hohle Phrase. Aber es geht noch darüber hinaus, in den faschistischen Neocon Think Tanks wird vom “biologischen_Rassenkrieg” geträumt. Afrika soll offenbar in ewiger Rohstoff-Sklaverei gehalten werden.

Selbstorganisation, politisch, sozial und auch insbesondere wirtschaftlich

Die Annahme einer Opferrolle und Klagen sind nicht der Weg. Tatsächlich muss es einem klar werden, so wie die Dinge im Westen liegen, kann Afrika sich wohl nicht “mit dem Westen”, sondern nur “gegen den Westen” entwickeln! Das erfordert viel Arbeit und Enthusiasmus. Der Geist von Lumumba, Nkrumah, Malcolm X, Sankara und Anderen muss wiederbelebt werden und mit dem Studium der Gegner, der Organisation, Geo-Politik und autozentrierter Wirtschaft verknüpft werden. Leider sind die Erfolge des Befreiungskampfes in vielen Ländern nach dem vermeintlichen Sieg wieder zunichte gemacht worden, wobei der Zusammenbruch der Sowjetunion wohl eine große Rolle spielte.

Symbolismus und falsche Verbündete

Forderungen nach Mahnmalen für die Opfer von Sklaverei und Kolonialismus nähren nur die alberne Illusion, der Kolonialismus sei vorbei. So sehr man sich über Straßen ärgern mag, die nach Kolonialisten benannt sind, das Ringen um Umbenennung darf nicht über die Notwendigkeit hinwegtäuschen, den Kolonialismus wirklich zu bekämpfen, es gibt kaum ein alberneres Wort als das vom “Post-Kolonialismus”. Ich erinnere mich an eine Veranstaltung_zur_Umbenennung des Gröben-Ufers in May-Ayim-Ufer am 29. August 2011. Zur gleichen Zeit fand der NATO-Krieg gegen Libyen statt. Nicht ein Wort fiel auf der Veranstaltung dazu, was mich sehr verärgerte.

Besonders die Grünen sind eifrig bei derartigen Alibi-Veranstaltungen dabei, haben sich aber auch bei der Zerstörung Libyens als “olivgrüne” Kriegspartei hervorgetan und die damalige Bundesregierung für ihre relative Zurückhaltung schwer angegriffen. Man höre dazu Cohn-Bandit, äh, Cohn-Bendit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkoJQDI5ENU

Friedenskampf gegen tödliches “Spiel”

Wir sollen auch nicht vergessen, dass zu den “grünen Lieblingen”, wie denen des weistlichen Mainstreams insgesamt, Paul Kagame gehört, der der US-Handlanger für die Zerstörung der DR Kongo ist und für über acht_Millionen_Tote dort verantwortlich zeichnet. Gerne wird medial übrigens die gezielte_Destabilisierung_Afrikas als das Ergebnis “Afrikanischer Barbarei” dargestellt.

Angesichts grüner Doppelzüngigkeit kann man fast noch eher Xenophoben – so unappetitlich sie mir sind – klarmachen, dass sie besser gegen die US-geführte Zerstörung Afrikas und des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens aufstehen sollten, anstatt vor Flüchtlingsheimen zu gröhlen, wenn sie nicht Flüchtlingsströme erleben wollen, die keiner mehr aufhalten könnte! Diese Politik zerstört ja nicht nur das Umfeld Europas, sondern könnte auch zur “Sprengung_Europas” führen. Die Friedensfrage ist bei Bündnissen von zentraler Bedeutung, denn die gleich US-Machtelite, die die Zerstörung der südlichen Hemisphäre orchestriert, müht sich auch, Europa zum Schlachtfeld ihres Krieges gegen Russland zu machen.

Keine Frage, meine afrikanischen Freunde, es wird ein langer Kampf, Afrika wirklich zu befreien und dafür zu sorgen, dass Menschen nicht mehr lebensgefährliche Fahrten unternehmen müssen, um Not, Krieg und Zerstörung zu entkommen. Es wird ein langer Kampf, dafür zu sorgen, dass die Bewohner des Kontinents seine Reichtümer selbst nutzen können und ihre Gesellschaften so entwickeln, dass sie nicht mehr zum Spielball des westlichen neoliberalen, globalisierten Raubtier-Kapitalismus werden.

Wenn ich mit meinen 70 Jahren mit der Entlarvung der Strategien der westlichen Machteliten und ihrer unmenschlichen Zielsetzungen ein wenig beitragen kann, wäre ich glücklich!

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

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.

swimsuits-100-yrs-ago

Swim Suits around 1912

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!
