    I watch Russian political analysis talk shows and there is an emerging theme about where EU NATzO is going. It is reverting to
    its fascist roots. While tolerance and "democracy" were leveraged since WWII as a way to fight off communism, they were also
    propped up by a high standard of living. The EU is now entering a severe economic crisis without cheap Russian energy. It has
    two options to deal with this existential crisis: anarchy or dictatorship.

    Analysis of various statements by German officials since the 1990s and other EU leaders reveals a dark underlying theme. We now
    have Borrell (supposedly who "fought" against the Franco regime in Spain) openly acting like a militant racist asswipe. German
    politicians complain that Russia was not pacified after 1990 (Merkel) and say it that it needs to suffer like the Germans in 1945 and accept
    humiliating defeat (some other German clown). The treatment of Russians (not Russia and its politicians) after February 24 is outright
    hate-based discrimination. There was nowhere near this level of abuse during the Cold War.

    In a post a while back I surmised that the woke "leftist" retardation gripping the NATzO west is not a simple social decay but is rather
    a ploy for a fascist revanche. Leftism is being smeared to death by association with child genital mutilation and woke degeneracy.
    The NATzO "left" is too busy hating white (i.e. indigenous) males to care about worker's rights and real leftist issues. Recall that
    fascism was offering itself as a sort of pro-worker movement early last century but bridging the workers with the oligarchs. The
    socialist left was fighting against the oligarchy where it was not co-opted. So we may see a rapid transition to fascism in the "leftist"
    EU as the population is impoverished and radicalized against the woke degeneracy.

    It looks like we may be heading for WWIII. Ukraine is just the start and the fighting is already between Russian and NATzO. As things
    go south in the EU NATzO component, the proxy war will likely escalate into an open war on Russia. This is not alarmist nonsense since
    wars pivot over economic factors. The EU is sinking into the toilet and is going to come out of the closet with its desperation to seize
    Russian resources. I have heard Albright and others yap about how Russia has an "unfair" control over land and resources (that makes
    Canada much worse, BTW). The western European drang nach osten has been going on for 1000 years. It is not something that is
    a historical fossil. It is part of the societal genome of "Europe". The frothing at the mouth Poles, Czechs, Baltics, etc. confirm that the
    anti-Russian crusader mindset is alive and well.

    People can dismiss WWIII on the basis of magical nuclear deterrence. But that implicitly assumes rationality. History is driven by an
    amalgam of elite planning and mob hysteria. The talk about taking out Russia's nuclear weapons in the western MSM since the 1990s
    tells me that the lunatics are mostly in control of the asylum. Rationality is not guaranteed to prevent WWIII.

    Political scientist: Russia managed to isolate the West and Japan in the UN General Assembly, by Daria Volkova for VZGLYAD. 12.16.2022.

    Political scientist Trukhachev: Voting on the anti-Nazi resolution in the UN General Assembly demonstrated the isolation of the West and Japan.

    We need to actively work with countries that do not have an openly anti-Russian position. The vector of this work should be directed to the countries of the non-Western world, as well as to Switzerland. Political scientist Vadim Trukhachev came to this conclusion from a conversation with the VZGLYAD newspaper. Earlier, the UN General Assembly adopted a Russian resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism.

    "The results of today's vote in the UN General Assembly are a step in the right direction. Separately, I would single out the fact that Turkey and Switzerland abstained from voting. That is, one European country and one NATO member country decided not to go against Russia. Let me remind you that earlier the Turks have always voted for anti-Russian resolutions at the UN, and the Swiss have abstained only for the second time,” said Vadim Trukhachev, Associate Professor of the Department of Foreign Regional Studies and Foreign Policy of the RSUH.

    “In addition, it is worth noting that South Korea, one of the key allies of the United States and a very developed country, abstained from voting. It turns out that she may be out of step with her allies,” the source argues.

    “As for the German vote, here you should not pay attention to the word “Nazism” in the resolution. European countries and in particular Germany are voting against it simply because it is a Russian resolution. In fact, they are now in a state of cold war against us and reject everything related to our country, ”the expert believes.

    “It is bad that the delegations of Iran and Venezuela were absent from the voting, which would potentially be for us. The vote of the countries of Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America in favor of the resolution is a welcome step. It turns out that the collective West and Japan have become isolated to some extent,” Trukhachev said.

    "However, so far too many countries are voting for resolutions condemning Russia for “violating the territorial integrity of Ukraine”. Now it is about half of the states, and at first it was generally two-thirds, ”the political scientist said.

    "The stable anti-Russian core is 54 countries, since I would still include Turkey, Switzerland and South Korea here. Approximately the same number of countries do not vote against Russia. Thus, these two groups make up about half of the total number of states that are members of the UN,” he added.

    “And it is with the remaining half that we need to work now so that they at least abstain or support us in their vote. Now we have relative success in this direction, but we should direct the spearhead of this work to countries outside the Western world, ”the expert believes.

    “Switzerland can become the key area of ​​work in Europe, no matter how strange it may look. I believe that Swiss companies can be given more privileges to work in Russia, somehow distinguish this country from other Europeans,” Trukhachev said.

    In turn, historian and political scientist Vladimir Kornilov, in a conversation with the VZGLYAD newspaper, noted that Germany's vote against the ban on the glorification of Nazism is very significant. “Let me remind you that in Germany the glorification of Nazism is still a criminal offense,” he emphasized.

    "However, the war of the Europeans against us in Ukraine has changed a lot in this regard. Now the neo-Nazis of Azov, banned in Russia, are being glorified. The West began to rethink for itself the role and significance of the Nazis. We see a movement towards their own nazification - and this vote is another confirmation of this, ”Kornilov believes.

    Earlier, the UN General Assembly adopted a Russian resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism. It was supported by 120 countries, 50 were against, 10 abstained. Among the states that voted against the document were the United States, Hungary, Germany, Georgia, Spain, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Ukraine, Finland, France, Japan and others.

    "Combating the glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to the escalation of modern forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance” is a traditional Russian resolution that is submitted every year. Its co-sponsors are Azerbaijan, Belarus, Venezuela, Vietnam, Cambodia, North Korea, Cuba, Laos, Mali, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Syria, Sudan, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea and South Africa.

    Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN Gennady Kuzmin said that the vote of the former countries of the Axis bloc is shocking: "For the first time in the history of the UN, states - former members of the Axis voted against a document condemning Nazism, as well as confirming the inviolability of the results of World War II." According to him, Germany, Japan, Italy and other countries that voted against "showed blatant blasphemy against the memory of the victims of German Nazism, Italian fascism and Japanese militarism."

    Kuzmin also said that Moscow rejects an amendment to the resolution made by Western countries, which says that the fight against Nazism and neo-Nazism cannot be used to explain Russia's actions in Ukraine. He stressed that "the resolution is thematic, not country-specific" and is needed for dialogue, and not for labeling.

    The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commenting on the voting results on her Telegram channel, noted that "the result is even better than November 4 in the Third Committee."

    Recall that in November at a meeting of the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly, a number of countries, including Italy, Austria, Germany, for the first time  voted against the Russian resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism. Then 106 countries were in favor, 15 abstained, and 51 were against. Such a resolution is adopted by the UN General Assembly every year. Usually only the United States and Ukraine were opposed.

    People can dismiss WWIII on the basis of magical nuclear deterrence. But that implicitly assumes rationality. History is driven by an
    amalgam of elite planning and mob hysteria. The talk about taking out Russia's nuclear weapons in the western MSM since the 1990s
    tells me that the lunatics are mostly in control of the asylum. Rationality is not guaranteed to prevent WWIII.

    We can look at WWI and see that the Arch Duke Ferdinand was not assassinated for the purposes of starting a world war, but ironically the security arrangements and agreements of the time made WWI the obvious choice... the idea that there would be two massive power blocks of rival groups of countries so war could never happen... each side acting as the others deterrent... didn't really work very well.... but what is critical is that no lessons were learned... Germany was demonised and blamed for the entire conflict and had all her assets stolen by the allied powers... which set the world up for the inevitable repeat in WWII... and what did they end up doing there... demonising their own ally that was useful against the nazis and Japanese, but when the conflict ended they had nothing in common with the Soviets so they fell into old habits and they became the new rivals, and ironically after the cold war ended the Soviets get as much blame for WWII and the Germans less of that burden...

    And now the cold war has ended and Russia and China are the bad guys... the world would be perfect if it wasn't for those two meddling kids... (ironically what the criminals in the Scooby Doo cartoons say when their crimes are exposed...)

    Of course what they mean is perfect for the rich powerful west to become richer and more powerful.

    In turn, historian and political scientist Vladimir Kornilov, in a conversation with the VZGLYAD newspaper, noted that Germany's vote against the ban on the glorification of Nazism is very significant. “Let me remind you that in Germany the glorification of Nazism is still a criminal offense,” he emphasized.

    That is it in a nutshell... Germany is essentially voting against something it actually supports in its own laws, these are its own beliefs, but they are voting against their own beliefs and values to support the US and punish Russia, but we have known for a long time that most EU states are empty headed poodles that do as they are told and have no independent thought or interests... which is why their energy costs have gone up so much.

    Debt-laden Italy slams ‘crazy’ ECB rate hike, 12.17.2022.

    Three senior ministers make unusually negative comments about the Eurozone financial regulator’s policy.

    Italian ministers publicly lashed out at the European Central Bank on Friday for a yet another interest rate hike, branding the decision “baffling” and “crazy.”

    The comments from three senior ministers from the recently appointed Italian government come after the ECB raised its benchmark rate by half a percentage point on Thursday. It’s feared the move, aimed at taming inflation, will pile financial pressure on one of the Eurozone's most indebted countries.

    Shortly after the announcement, Italy’s Defense Minister Guido Crosetto wrote on Twitter that raising interest rates “makes no sense,” sarcastically thanking ECB President Christine Lagarde for the “Christmas present.” Crosetto posted a chart illustrating the widening spread between German and Italian borrowing costs alongside his comments.

    He also slammed the regulator’s plan to reduce sovereign bond purchases, calling the move “crazy”, and saying ECB decisions are “taken and communicated with superficiality and detachment.”

    By lifting rates, the monetary regulator will harm economic growth, impacting markets and households, Italy’s Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Antonio Tajani said on Friday, adding that it was “fair” to criticize such moves. He claimed inflation in the EU largely stems from “external” factors such as the conflict in Ukraine.

    Echoing remarks from his colleagues, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini labeled the ECB's decision-making as “unbelievable, baffling” and “worrying”.

    Lavrov gave a long press conference. He recounted how US and its pals engage in mafia style intimidation and coercion.
    Indeed, NATzO is a mafia construct. Its economic model is that of a mafia. Its tactics are that of a mafia.

    They are talking about superiority after LCS is a total waste of time and money and is totally useless but too sophisticated to sell even to US allies so most likely the 16 remaining ships will be scrapped along with the first model, and the Zumwalt destroyer class that was supposed to be made in enormous numbers stopped at ship number 3 and is another disaster and embarrassment but unlike the LCS they can't go to a HATO ally to build a conventional frigate type to bail them out... no HATO destroyers are good enough to replace existing US destroyers or cruisers and they are in serious trouble.

    Even more so because their naval fighter is pathetic and there is no plan B.

    US ships everywhere are vulnerable to previous gen Russian and Soviet anti ship missiles like Onyx and Kh-32 and the supersonic model of the Club missile as well as Kinzhal, which are all in service, let alone the Zircon which is rapidly entering service and is three times faster...

    They have no answers when a Russian Corvette can launch Zircons to take out their strongest carrier groups... but it appears they have a secret that Russia and China are desperate to find out... I think desperate is the wrong word, but could be correctly used to describe one country...
