What happened is everyone - including Canada - got lazy and took things for granted under the bosom of American protection. Our muscles to remain vigilant in defence of liberty atrophied. Now we're realizing we're impotent trouble makers.

Exactly. As much as Europe is a demilitarised colonial outpost of America, this is Europe's own choice and fault. Decolonisation will be both expensive and time-consuming.

The USA became secure in its position and became the GAE. Like you said, it's crumbling in real time. Too weak to defend itself, and doesn't even have the moral will to do so.

It is going to suck to live through but not nearly as much as it would suck if it didn't fall apart.

It makes you wonder. How will we know when "climate change" has been defeated? Will it be 20C all year long?

I think Acapulco defeated it already - low 20c and high 30c every day of the year +/- a few degrees within that range. People there wish they had 'seasons' , they don't really grasp the idea IMO. example:

Ottawa Canada resident, we have occasional winter days with high of -30c and summer days with +33c highs (90% humidity) and overnight lows of +26 (still mighty humid). Our wardrobes prepare us for every weather event . yuck!

Behold the dreaded BAERBOCK Mk.

It is carbon neutral since it is powered by methane derived from 100% green brain farts. It appears to be severely underpowered re. human intelligence and situational awareness, but it is highly opinionated. Although additionally hampered by low survivability and extremely high maintenance costs it is able to stun enemy forces with its sheer amount of arrogance, narcissism, and stupidity.

How far back in history do you want to go? It would be very easy to find historic examples from when Poland was a greater power than Germany; are the poles living today to pay reparations for what was done before they were born?

And since Sweden's and Poland's old royal families share roots, does that mean Sweden belongs to Pland or vice versa?

And how big reparations should Britain, Spain and France pay for the genocide they inflicted upon the indigenous people of the Americas?

And how much should the italians pay to palestinians and jews for sacking Judea and the Levant?

Yes, the UK is talking a tough game but suffers from the same lack of resources as the rest of Europe.

Recently an article in the Daily Telegraph claimed that the British Army would run out of ammunition within days if it had to fight a war.

Realistically Britain's military now fulfils a similar function for the Americans as the Gurkhas used to provide for the British - a few extra regiments of well-disciplined troops with their own colourful traditions, who can join in an operation but couldn't mount one on their own.

Expand full comment

Yes, but what I want to know is - did America actually win the Revolutionary War? Or was that for popular consumption, and the City of London won and is keeping the US and the rest of the UK in line?

Expand full comment

The revolution was a class rebellion against the old regime of crown and altar. It was never a matter very much of America winning or losing but of planters, financiers, emerging industrialists, and lawyers winning or losing. So it's natural that the City was or would become their ally against a system which, from time to time, paid lip service to unsecularity.

In a way, the USA begins to look comical, or pernicious, when you consider her first flag. It's virtually the same as the British East India company's at the time but with the union extended an extra stripe down the hoist. It's a good reminder about the aims of the revolution and who was supposed to be in charge.

Although I'm not a Christian, or even a theocrat, I still believe in a natural class structure. There needs to be a priesthood at the top. The go-getters must be kept in perpetual check somewhat lower down, say, as a third class. Allowing them to rule, as they do now, is like putting children in charge of parenting.

“Token” gestures of appeasement are the same as tacit support and approval. Cowards are afraid to say what they stand for (akin to a one legged man in an ass kicking contest). I prefer a psychopath who is honest with -self bite’m and shellinsky?

This disgraceful proxy war to cover the Biden criminal cartel crimes and cover the 3rd rate actor hack in ukraine is a crime against humanity and treason for our Manchurian Candidate charlatan president.

Since the news reporting is ridiculously one-sided, as in: if you only follow state and regime loyal media you'd think Russia has lost its entire army and airforce and has no ammo left, while the only ukrainian casualties are civilians murdered by russians, most people don't understand how the war can still be going on.

And when you point out that the news are so one-sided it makes Covid-reporting look sane, you are immediately accused of being a "Putinist".

We have been told for +50 years we may not criticise foreigners. I think that has built up a reservoir of resentiment all over western Europe, a reservoir which is now being emptied against Russia.

And not against the real enemy: the "refugees" invading us from MENA and Africa.

Observation seems to indicate that whoever, (or whatever ?), is driving this rapid destruction of our society has pulled out all stops. Every facet of our existence is being attacked.

We can no longer feed, clothe, or house ourselves. We are doing away with borders and the rule of law. We seem to have decided to stop having children, or educating the few we do have. Which may be just as well, since we have nearly eliminated the nuclear family.

No, none of it works!

Europe certainly needs a strong, common defense policy, equipping it with a credible deterrent to foreign aggression, independent of Washington and also able to deter Washington from sabotaging its infrastructure.

My own sense is that if we had done so a decade ago, including by withdrawing from NATO and establishing a Common Defense Procurement framework (politically impossible due to the French), not alone would we be facing less anxiety over what Russia does within its own sphere of influence, but in fact Russia would have felt no need to invade Ukraine at all.

Russians proposed a common security initiative "from Lisbon to Vladivostok" for years. It always makes sense to cooperate and find common ground with your neighbors vs solving any minor disagreement with bombs and missiles.

Indeed. Instead we have chosen to drive Russia into the arms of China and India. And as anyone who has ever played Risk knows, if you control Asia, you pretty much win the game.

Decades of freeloading on America's willingness to provide for the common defense of the Western democracies turns out to be, shall we say, a little short-sighted.

Oh, and he also was attacked for "undermining NATO."

Strictly speaking the Netherlands actually doesn't even own the 18 tanks that it could send to Ukraine.

Rather they have leased these tanks from other NATO members through an opaque legal construction that conveniently prevents the Dutch finance ministry from collecting sales taxes on these from the ministry of defense.

So very Dutch, they can always claim they never sent their tanks.
