Alternative Title    “June 2022 – World Peace-keeping Month.”

 

I got up at 4 am today (Sat 9th July) and started pulling this together with the intention of doing the whole month of June. I cribbed all of it from a great blog called Anti-Bellum run by a real work horse Rick Rozoff, who must have eyes in the back of his head. How he keeps up with all the comings and goings of the various NATO moves and intrigues is beyond me.

I wanted to show the folk in the west the sheer weight of warmongering sh*te that NATO and its lapdogs have been up to under the guise of helping the world to survive Vladimir Putin, who, as we all know, is planning to invade Washington at any moment and nuke the City of London some time next week.

You don’t get this on the BBC BTW.

Alas, I managed 70 or so entries and ran out of steam, but I think that you will get the idea by just scanning down this list of events that happened in the first week of June this year.

Unlike most authors, I do not recommend you delve too deeply into each and every entry,(It left me with Brain-ache)  the real shock comes in the number of entries and the sheer murderous violence being planned and executed as though it was just “Business as Usual” (Admittedly it is for the US but I honestly didnt think quite so many sycophantic sick Merchants of Death in Europe would be tagging along so closely in lockstep – Just shows how wrong you can be)

While I was doing this, 2 thoughts entered my head

Where has all the money, and all those tonnes of weapons poured into the Ukraine ended up?  Maybe they are all being stashed away awaiting the arrival of a massive NATO army to arrive and take them up? Nah, too much like a conspiracy theory.

 Maybe the whole war thing is orchestrated, after all everyone is singing in close harmony from the same song sheet. Plenty of photos of Putin with World Leaders, WEF and G7 types shaking hands. Maybe this is all just an act to cover his arse. “He tried”, the story goes, but the whole world was against him and he failed …job done!  Russia bought by American “Interests” Russian people all manacled by 5G into 21st Century slavery just like the rest of us. (Nah, too much like a conspiracy theory.)

I am pretty sure there are other scenarios, but they will all share the same MO. Whatever the reason, this war was started by very powerful men, the same ones that started the last 2 world wars. They have no interest in how many lives are lost or in to which nation they were borne, only how much money they can make and how to keep the machine going and their power intact.

Stop Press

Just before I posted this piece last night I spent a while sifting through my shed of a head looking for a report that I knew I had put “somewhere safe”, but all I could remember was that it was recent, from the EU Commission, and the subject matter was Turkish Democracy. I woke this morning to find it almost instantly. Amazing what a good night’s sleep will do for cranial housekeeping.

The report is the 2021 report on Turkeys accession to the EU dated 19 October 2021. The following is from the Key Findings, here are the first 12 lines of that document.

In the 8th *entry below, under June 6th you see a set of “5 Conditions” that nations applying for NATO membership must meet. They are

1 New members must uphold democracy, which includes tolerating diversity.

2 New members must be in the midst of making progress toward a market economy.

3 The nations’ military forces must be under firm, civilian control.

4 The nations must be good neighbours and respect sovereignty outside their borders.

5 The nations must be working toward compatibility with NATO forces.

Can somebody tell me how Turkey, member of NATO since 1952, meets any of those conditions?

Why in the world do we tolerate Turkey threatening to take over Cyprus and certain islands in the Aegean belong currently to fellow NATO member Greece?

How is it OK to be TOLD by Turkey that they plan to invade Syria for a fifth time?

The only way I can see all this being ‘permissible’ is if Turkey is somehow protected, (and it wont be by the EU judging by the text above), nor is it likely to be Russia or China, leaving good ‘ol Uncle Sam again holding the baby……Or maybe Uncle Sam is the babys father?

For the record- Below you see just 70 Entries for 1 week of “Peace-keeping” in June 2022. For the whole month there were a total of 225 such entries in June and they were  all in the same warmongering-weapons-dealing-genocidal vein.

This planet is run by bloodsucking psychopaths, its time to get rid of them.

BTW, nowhere in any of the entries for the whole month of June 2022 do we see any mention of Peace Talks, Negotiations, Sitting round a Table. It is ALL about Killing, practicing how to kill more, selling more weapons and inventing quicker more profitable ways of doing it.

The Nazi officers that were placed in NATO HQ back in the 50’s set a fine example. Hans Speidel, Adolf Heusinger and Johann Adolf Graf von Kielmansegg to name but three
