Kim Dotcom is spot-on
EVER WONDERED WHY NEW ZEALAND AND OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES ARE SENDING HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY FROM THEIR AILING ECONOMIES TO PROP UP UKRAINE’S ALL BUT DEFEATED ARMY IN A STAND-OFF WITH RUSSIA THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY?
We are living in the last days of Empire – the US/Western Financial Empire – and most people don’t know it.
Places like Kherson, the Donbass, Sevastopol and Crimea have literally nothing to do with us, and it matters not to our national interests whether they are controlled by a government in Moscow, or one in Kiev.
They tell us it’s about defending freedom and a ‘rules based international order’.
But it’s not. It’s not about defending freedom, or defending the lives of Ukrainians. In fact the West would be most happy to fight until the last Ukrainian is standing, if that meant preservation of the Empire.
All wars are banker wars, and concepts like ‘freedom’, ‘human rights’ and ‘humanitarian causes’ are just bylines to garner public support at home for wars in distant lands with which we have no connection.
This conflict is no different, except that in this case, for the first time in 80 years, the West has come up against serious military opposition in the form of Russia – unlike in the Middle East in recent times, and in South East Asia the generation before – theatres where the much vaunted US and/or NATO military machine suffered embarrasing defeats in Vietnam, Korea, Syria (by proxy), and Afghanistan.
The conflict in Ukraine is about preserving the hegemony of the West’s Financial Empire centred in Washington DC and London.
For at least a generation, Western elites have known Russia and China posed the greatest threats to this hegemony – Russia, because of its vast landmass and seemingly limitless natural resources, and China because of its economic and industrial power.
The rise of Russia and China has been achieved without military conquest – proof that if left unchecked, they could end US and Western dominance of the world without firing a single shot – an unprecedented development in world history where dominance has always been achieved by the sword or gun.
With no possibiltity of gaining public support in the West for full on military confrontation, the US and its allies, over the last decade, have carefully engineered tensions in Ukraine and Taiwan – the proverbial ‘Achilles heels’ of Russia and China, from whence they can launch economic, social and military operations to weaken, perhaps mortally, their two main adversaries by proxy.
In the case of Russia, it hasn’t worked so far. Sanctions have only strengthened the Russian economy and support for Putin – if anything Putin has been criticised at home for being ‘too soft’ on Ukraine, while the political and economic situations in the west have deteriorated under growing social discontent (see mass protests in Czechia, France and Moldova, to name a few) rising inflation and unemployment, and acute fuel shortages. It’s going to be a grim winter in Europe.
Ostensibly Russia is fighting to protect its borders from further NATO encroachment, but it’s victory will also ensure a fairer and just ‘multi-polar world’ where all countries have the right to develop independently in peace, and to choose their own pathway to prosperity, rather than be dictated to by Washington and London.
Kim Dotcom summed it up in a series of eight tweets today. ‘It’s either war with Russia and China to stop BRICS+ or the financial collapse of the US, EU and the entire Debt and money printing circus.’
This explains why so-called ‘progressives’ like Ardern and Foreign Minister Mahuta – people you would expect to be anti-war and who should be advocating for a peaceful solution, as well as declaring a neutral position for New Zealand, were so quick to join the ‘Slava Ukraina’ warmongering bandwagon. Our true masters reside in Washington and London.
It also explains why the western media are publishing so much misinformation and fake news about this conflict. After all, most western media, including New Zealand’s, are ultimately owned by the same ‘bankers’ who own the military arms companies, and who have a vested interest in a Russian defeat.
‘What’s the root cause of the US proxy war in Ukraine? Most people don’t have a clue. Let me explain.
It all started after the 2007-2008 financial crisis that originated in the US. The reliability of the US Govt as a partner in global financial affairs was destroyed.
In 2009 Russia hosted the first BRICS summit to establish a better international financial system with China, India, Brazil, South Africa and later with future BRICS+ partners. In short a new “multipolar order”. BRICS is challenging the US Dollar reserve currency status.
That started a new Cold War with Russia and China. US National Debt is now at $31 trillion, total US Debt is at $92 trillion and total US unfunded liabilities are at $172 trillion and all of that without any US Govt surplus to pay for any of it. Only more Debt and money printing.
The US Govt knows that without the reserve currency status it is bankrupt. Without money printing on the backs of other nations it’s simply Game Over for the US. But not just for the US. The EU and most western democracies followed the US model of endless Debt and money printing.
That’s why they stand with the US and support the escalating actions that seem totally illogical to most people. Why is the EU sacrificing prosperity for a US proxy war in Ukraine? Because if the US is collapsing they collapse too. Their alliance is glued by the fear of failure.
BRICS+ was on track to launch its new global financial system by 2030. Ukraine is the tool for conflict with Russia and Taiwan is the tool for conflict with China. Eventually the US and NATO will be at war with Russia and China. They simply don’t seem to have another choice.
It’s either war with Russia and China to stop BRICS+ or the financial collapse of the US, EU and the entire Debt and money printing circus. It was never about the people of Ukraine. Ukraine is a sideshow. The main event is yet to come. The two options are poverty or nuclear war.’
They say money is the root of all evil, but more accurately, in the modern world, the US Dollar is the source of all evil. The Dollar’s dominance over the last few decades has concentrated an enormous amount of power into the hands of a few in London and Washington, allowing this small group of elites to own and control media, industry, technology throughout the West. The Dollar has given these elites the power to cripple countries financially or militarily if they don’t tow the line. The human and environmental cost of these greed-based tragedies is incalculable.
The sooner the US Dollar is removed as the world’s reserve currency, the better it will be for all humanity.
Russian victory in Ukraine is inevitable, and it will be decisive. The Russians could have reduced the entire country to rubble within a week if they had wanted to, but initially the Russian parliament only permitted a limited ‘Special Military Operation’ – a small-scale incursion with limited military means in an effort to achieve limited objectives and to preserve clvilian life and infrastructure as much as possible.
But that has changed with the influx of billions of dollars, military equipment and personnel into Ukraine from the West, and provocative acts such as blowing up Nord Stream 2 and bombing the Crimean bridge. It’s not going to change the outcome, only prolong it.
The question is, what is the dying Empire going to do? Will they just accept the new world order promulgated by BRICS+, or will they initiate WW3, a nuclear war, in a last desperate roll of the dice?
With the semi-senile Joe Biden apparently in charge, anything is possible.
