Did Biden Just Tell Putin To Attack Ukraine? That Would Make Sense: The US Deep State Loves Wars In Europe! Yet, It Would Be Better To Deter Putin…

January 21, 2022

On Wednesday 1/20/2022, US President Biden told a news conference that Mr Putin would pay a “serious and dear price” for invading Ukraine, but also indicated that it will depend on how Russia went about it. Maybe, after all, there would be… no price. That would be nice for the hundreds of millions of Europeans who depend upon the astounding quantities of liquids and gas that farting Russia provides them with.  Europe gets 40% of its gas, and 25% of its oil, from Russia (2022)… making all too many powerful Russians feel indispensable, and their ways, splendid.

What you’re going to see is that Russia will be held accountable if it invades and it depends on what it does,” Biden said. “It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion, and then we end up having to fight about what to do and not do etc.

Thus Biden said that a “minor incursion” by Russia into Ukraine could make “we end up having a fight” with European allies about the appropriate response! Those comments flustered European leaders with their suggestion of divisions that could further embolden the aggressive imperialist, Mr. Putin

Biden, logic, and proper sentence constructing are different concepts… Biden also predicted that Mr Putin will “move in” to Ukraine anyway. To make sure that Putin got the hint, Biden said, speaking of Putin:”He has to do something!” Full sentence: “I’m not so sure he has, he’s certain what he’s going to do. My guess is he will move in. He has to do something.

Democratically elected Ukraine president Zelensky replied in a tweet: “There are no minor incursions. Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones.”

Hey dictator Putin, Uncle Joe told you to do something! Remember Yalta, and before that, when Uncle Sam saved th skin of Uncle Joe? The other Joe, Stalin…

It’s freezing hard now in Ukraine… Finally… And Biden just gave the green light… For Putin’s “minor incursion“… Biden will apply minor sanctions, he hinted, thus, in practice, egging Putin on to attack… All that Putin worries about is to be able to sell his liquids and gas to Europe. Nothing else counts… relative to the great purpose of reconstituting imperial Russia… At its peak.

The US Deep State, a form of subconscious, and breathing or partying together, and also a business, the biggest business of them all, has long profited from wars in Europe. Starting in 1914-1918, then 1939-1945. The US was ambivalent: on June 1, 1914, Colonel House, right hand man of president Wilson, proposed a “racial” alliance to the Kaiser… against France!

As the world war started, US plutocrats provided to the Kaiser and his goons what they needed to pursue the war, while accumulating great profits… by breaking the Franco-British sea blockade. The short term profit motive was engaged, naturally. But the basic fact is that, while the two leading democracies, France and Britain, were fighting for their survival after being assaulted by the racist German dictatorship, US plutocrats were busy making a fortune from it, and the US government was betraying not just its allies and fellow democracies, but its parents and creators. In 1914-1917, the US was committing parricide, and again during the elaboration of the Versailles Treaty in 1919, and again in 1939-1941… 

In 1939, 1940, even 1941, US plutocrats profited from countless deals with Hitler. Prescot Bush quit his position as manager of “my most important war corporation” (dixit Hitler), only in August 1942. IBM leased his computer to the Reich throughout the war: IBM, managed from New York, had the monopoly of computing in the Reich. 

By 1945, all the victors were clients of the USA, depending on US big business to eat and reconstruct. 

Is this the US Deep State at work?. Once again? The US Deep State, made of countless universities, foundations, and businesses which live in symbiosis with the US government may, out of habit, believe that it would love another war in Europe…

But nowadays, things are different. Twentieth Century wars were mostly fought by proxies and drastically weakened European democracies… As intended by the US Deep State. Now the US can’t hide, and nuclear bombs could cause in the USA, in a few minutes, the sort of devastation which Poland (unsupported by the US in 1939-1945, and betrayed in 1945) suffered in World War Two. In World War Two around 20% of the Polish population was killed (including dozens of thousands of the Polish elite at the hand to the Soviets so admired by Putin). That was around six million people. In the USA, nowadays, that would mean 70 million killed… 

Now let’s be intellectually honest: the reason that the US Deep State betrayed France and Britain, its parents, and the leading democracies in 1914-1917 and 1939-1941 were multiple. There was, of course, the question that the USA was then a racist country (remember the work of MLK and the Kennedys, and even LBJ, to correct that, in the 1960s). Germany was racist, so the US, or at least its white leading classes, had great empathy for racist Prussianized Germany. More fundamentally even, the USA hoped to displace the European empire… as happened after 1945.

Now the latter point has been achieved, with America First and Amerika Uber Alles… The domineering instinct is still here, and pretty grotesque sometimes: consider the abrogation of Australian contracts with France in submarines and helicopters, under America First Biden. However, the US is only 350 million people, and Europe is closer to 600 million (excluding Russia, which is 146 million).

However, realism implies that the USA should make a strong alliance with NATO (30 countries; 945 million people…) and the European influence zone. Indeed to NATO one has to add the ex-European ex-empires (Commonwealth, French, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.) which share lots of values in common (consider for example Brazil, and all the Americas…) So the time of abuse and Americanization in the guise of decolonization should be over. As Biden himself pointed out many times, a conflict between (representative) democracy and dictatorships is looming. A conflict between open, democratic societies and closed, fascist oligarchies.

Putin and his goons, Xi and his politburo, plus their propaganda machines are claiming,and have apparently persuaded themselves that the “West” is corrupt, weak and degenerating. They confuse the severe critique of progressives such as yours truly, with the superiority of their fascism… forgetting that one of the main arguments is the alliance of Western plutocrats with Russian and Chinese autocracies… The same maneuver of outrageous alliance of Western plutocrats with fascists as in 1914-1917 and 1933-1945 (IBM had the monopoly of computing with, and for, the Nazis, until 1945…) 

So we have seen it before… Actually the fascist Lenin got the military alliance with the fascist Kaiser going as early as 1916… Lenin even joked about his alliance with the “capitalists”, aka plutocrats… “they are so greedy they would sell you the rope to hang them with“… The Harrimans would develop the Baku oil fields which enabled the USSR to defeat the Nazis…

Being persuaded of the weakness of democracy, because democracy argues with itself, was the mistake the Achaemenids Persians already made… As Persia discovered at Marathon, then Salamis and Platea… Among other enlightening battles… The Kaiser, and then Hitler, made the same mistake. Putin and Xi are repeating it presently.

Putin will understand one thing well, and only one: the inability to win. For several weeks, the ground in Ukraine was muddy. Then it became harder, but it snowed a lot and visibility was no good: what is the point of having aerial superiority, when one cannot see from the air?

Ukraine should be given anti-aircraft means, ASAP. To be able to defend itself. United Nations law recognizes the right to self-defense (and the right to help those who self-defend).

Because, after Ukraine, if a dictator is left to conquer it, in the name of ethnic purity, same as Hitler in 1936-1939, it will be the rest. And when the “West” threatens to switch to carbon free energy sources, Putin and, or his cultural successor(s) will be faced with the same dilemma as the Kaiser and his goons in 1912-1914: time was a wasting asset, militarily… Nothing to lose, let’s use it now. Having killed, poisoned, terrorized or jailed all his opponents, Putin, or his psychological successor(s) will have nothing to lose… Putin and, or, his goons just threatened the West with another Cuban missile crisis. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that the deployment’s possibility of nuclear missiles to Venezuela and Cuba “depends on the actions by our US counterparts”. This is a silly bluff, but indicative of a seriously delusional mindset in the Kremlin relative to the gullibility of the Western population.

Russian tanks deploying in Putin Occupied Crimea, Tuesady 18 January, 2022:

“We know that there are plans in place to increase that [Russian] force even more on very short notice, and that gives President Putin the capacity, also on very short notice, to take further aggressive action against Ukraine,” US Sec of State Blinken said on 1/20/2022.

Nota Bene: In an article the New York considered consequences of Biden’s “minor incursion” proposal.

Biden Strengthens Words on Ukraine After Flustering European Partners

After the president laid bare divisions over Russian meddling in Ukraine, his administration scrambled to get on the same page with European allies.

Michael Crowley and 

BERLIN — President Biden on Thursday strengthened his warning to Russia about a potential attack on Ukraine, saying that any movement of Russian units across the Ukrainian border would be taken as an invasion, a day after the president triggered alarm in European capitals with his suggestion of divisions among allies.

I sent a first comment, critical of the US Deep State misadvising Biden, which was censored… and then, understanding that my critique of the Deep State had been censored, I sent a second comment, which was also censored. Here it is:

The US profited from WW1 and WW2 in several ways… in both cases intervening too late to enable the democracies to nip in the bud the fascist violations of civilization. 

 

Cynics could argue that it could well be a US tradition to favor war in Europe, hence the trial balloon of the “minor incursion”. Or maybe it was not a trial balloon?

 

This, that US institutions do not look too unfavorably to war in Europe, is a subject which is very hard to evoke in the US cultural sphere. One is immediately considered a “conspiracy theorist”. However, the fact is clear that, after 1945, the US displaced Europe. Worldwide. Yalta was also very clear: over the objections of France (not invited) and Britain (invited but furious), the US administration decided to give half of Europe to Stalin (then an accord was made by the dying FDR with Ibn Saud) . 

 

Fortunately Biden seems inclined to express solidarity with democratic Europe, this time… It’s not the Suez crisis of 1956, when the USSR invaded Hungary, killing 40,000+, and threatening London and Paris with atom bombing while the US was condemning France and Britain in the UN General Assembly (yes, amazing, but it can be readily checked).

 

So Biden slipped, and corrected himself the next day… The main problem remains, though, that Europe depends energetically upon Russia. And the worst is that this will not stop: Putin makes no mystery that he would be happy to reconquer the entire Russian empire at its maximal extent (“USSR”)… 

***

I view this sort of censorship as extremely despicable, and I claim that it should be unlawful. Who elected Mr. Erlanger and Crowley to adjudicate the level of thinking and knowledge the general population should be exposed to? Who, what, authorize them to force the level of considerations they hold, barely higher than gossip, to be the limit of what the population should be exposed. Or then, as agents of US plutocracy, how come do they get also support from the government and thus taxpayers, with the special prerogatives they have, as journalists?

In particular, unelected censors Erlanger and Crowley block the apparition of the concept of “Deep State“… Also known as “established, institutionalized plutocracy“. Since they are employees of it, and its existence depends upon not being noticed, and not being theorized about… There is a clear ethical conflict.

Want to prevent further invasion by dictator Putin? Send anti-aircraft missiles discreetly right away, by executive order!
