Maidan in Spain, and some new “dog whistles”

The Saker — Oct 3, 2017

Maidan in spain

Many books will eventually be written about the last week of September of 2017. 

Russian special forces repel a US-planned attack in Syria, after that the MOD denounced the USA and issued a stark warning:

Russian SOF incinerated the US SOF in Idlib SITREP:

Lieutenant-General Valery Asapov was killed in Syria:

In response, the Ministry of Defense declassified its surveillance images and officially stated that America’s SOF have been assisting the ISIS and Al-Nusra in Syria.

In Ukraine, the revelation about the Pentagon’s $2.2 Billion Soviet Arms Pipeline flooding Syria and much of those arms coming via Ukraine, was followed by the explosion of the largest ammunition depot of the Armed forces of Ukraine in Kalinovka near Vinnitsa.

Last week I spoke to a friend about the future of Eurasia being shaped by Russia and China. We had never talked about politics before, maybe a bit about Trump and “those crazy Americans” and mostly joked about those things.

At some point, our conversation turned serious. My friend is Chinese, so we talked about our nations’ common future. Using my friend’s words, we both saw the unlimited opportunities for our children, our rules on our lands to have a life of unmatched before success coupled with the social fairness, stability, and security based on Eastern technologies, science, and culture that never been allowed to fully florish under the tyranny of a handful of the Western nations.

After centuries of dominance, the power of the West is waning. We are looking for the next five to ten centuries of Eastern civilization to be prevalent inside and around our ‘Eurasian fortress.’ It’s going to be beautiful, peaceful, stable and absolutely magnificent in its unlimited possibilities in development of the human mind and spirit.

Those nations who manage to grab China’s and Russia’s sleeve will do great for themselves. Their children, their cultures will have future. Those nations who congregate around the United State will most likely be eaten by it, in its parasitic urge to sustain itself by devouring others.

Jack Ma, one of the founders of Alibaba, discussed globalization on capital and labor, that while the idea of the American companies outsourcing jobs was good because it helped the middle class and market to grow in Asia, and while the companies received billions dollars in revenue, they never reinvested into the American workers and let the American industries collapse. Instead, they spent the money on wars.

If you check in on the Pentagon’s 20-year plan, you immediately recognize what’s happening now and why. After all, the Pentagon has only 10 years to destabilize Europe by turning some of its countries into failed states while leaving others in desperate states of civil chaos so as to “need” American military intervention.

That’s why countries who are stronger and more independent, are actively trying to reach for Russia and China to be included into the Eurasian fortress, like Germany and France.

The West’s Moral Values

November 10, 2016: European Parliament member from Poland’s the Law and Justice party (PiS), Anna Fotyga, in this picture with former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice:

Anna Fotyga made a report in which she presented her plan to fight with online propaganda by “terrorist organizations and countries like Russia” (sic!) that in her opinion aimed to incite fear and divide Europe. In her political views she stands for a strong and independent Poland inside the EU, aligned with the US and opposed to Germany and Russia, or as it’s commonly known, to be an American shill in the EU.

According to Fotyga, the main source of “fear and division” in Europe was not an American plan to weaken European and to collapse civil societies by 2028 as its stated in the Pentagon 20 year plan. Anna Fotyga found that the main threat to the European civilization is the existence of the Russian Orthodox Church and the Russian state, especially if it’s strong, independent and not aligned with the US.

On November 23, on the closed session of the EU Parliament, she declared the Russian Orthodox Church to be one of the top enemy of post-Christian Western values, with Russia Today (RT) being a close second.

Or, in the words of a Russian commentator, ideologists of the Euro-Sodom see the Russian Orthodox Church as “dangerous.”

A year later, the US Parliament votes to declare the RT a foreign agent and to ban its broadcast. The ISIS threat disappeared from their agenda. In fact, it’s not being mentioned at all anymore.

Something else keeps turning up like a bad penny.

In a recent article of the globalist Robert D. Kaplan titled The Problem with “The Best of Intentions Foreign Policy, he writes that: “The tragedy of American foreign policy is seen when the intention to improve human rights leads to war and chaos.” Hilariously, he says that in the case of Syria, “a humanitarian and strategic nightmare there has ensued without our intervention.”

Kaplan wants us to believe that the individuals and groups of people who trained, armed, and financed armies of terrorists, and used them against the national governments of Lybia, Syria, and Iraq, did so because they were morally superior.

“The people I know who supported the Iraq War genuinely intended the human-rights situation in Iraq to be improved by the removal of Saddam Hussein, not made worse through war and chaos. The group of policymakers who supported the Libya campaign genuinely thought that by toppling the regime of Muammar el-Qaddafi a humanitarian catastrophe in Benghazi would be averted and the country as a whole would benefit. Instead, Libya collapsed into anarchy with many more thousands of casualties the consequence. The people who supported an early intervention to topple the regime of Bashar al-Assad, or at least limit the suffering in Syria, genuinely thought they were in both the moral and strategic right.”

It’s not America’s fault that those societies collapsed after being pounded into the sand by thousands of bombs. Therefore, it’s their own fault.

“The truth is that American power can do many things, but fixing complex and populous Muslim societies on the ground is not one of them: witness Iraq and Libya.”

“America’s own greatness requires the constant search for truth in war.”

“… the interests of humanity can in quite a few circumstances coincide with the interests of state. But it cannot do so all the time, or else we would be intervening everywhere, and that would not be sustainable. And yet just because you cannot intervene everywhere does not mean you cannot intervene, consistent with your interests, somewhere.”

In essence, Kaplan, in his short article waves goodbye to all those “human rights” issues that only lead to “to war and chaos.”

But, if it’s not “human rights,” what would be their new excuse for invasion, raping, pillaging and looting the rest of the world, also known as the non-West?

It’s going to be “moral,” “ethic” and “truth.”

Here comes the Dalai Lama.

Regardless of how you see him, as a CIA operative, a NATO promoter, a globalist agent, he still has some undue influence on some people. For those who strongly disagreed with me last time, I am writing about this particular Dalai Lama. I will change my mind if we are presented with a Dalai Lama from Russia or China, who actually lives in Russia or China.

So, he went to Riga, Latvia, to mingle with the liberal scum in exile from Russia congregating there, since none of them are allowed to enter Russia.

There, in Riga, one of the capitals of a large NATO base, he delivered a speech, unveiling a new “dog whistle” for the post-human rights epoch. It’s called “the moral values.”

“Lessons of moral values should be introduced everywhere. They should be organized with reliance not on religion, but on common sense, universal values and research data,” the Dalai Lama said.

In his “Teachings for Russia” he revealed a tactic, which can help to “reduce outrage within Russia” and to “help” people in Russia to become more spiritual, to care about each other more. “This is connected to an education system that is oriented toward material values. There must be lessons of spiritual, moral values, kindness,” he said about his teaching plans.

So, be prepared. The Dalai Lama is going to brainwash your children with his special kind of “morality.”

He doesn’t mention that the NATO presence on Russia’s borders is immoral. From this point of view, this situation is moral. He even dreams about the NATO headquarters being located in Moscow.

The Dalai Lama is perfectly Western in his Russophobia. In his mind, Russians are too “competitive” and “egocentric,” which is absurd. He claims that in Russia, “People are lacking care about each other.” It’s a lie, of course, but that’s how he sees us through the eyes of his Western moral superiority. He doesn’t criticize the claims of the American exceptionalism, and doesn’t offer to teach American children some morals

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In practice, people, and organizations existing on and around Buddhism are anything but, moral or spiritual.

Take, for example, the International Centre-Museum of N.K.Roerich in Moscow.

The Center has been situated in the beautiful historic Lopuhin Manor in the very center of Moscow, build in XVII in classicist style ever since the globalists imposed on us their regime with the code name “perestroika and glasnost” that resulted in ten million people in Russia perishing in just ten years of hunger, cold, lack of medicine, wars and ethnic cleansing disguised as “movements for independence.”

For some reason, having the Roerich center spread their ideas was so important that first Gorbachev’s and then Yeltsin’s governments let the followers of Nicholai Roerich and his ideas of “Political Occultism and Social Messianism” use a historic mansion for free.

Not only that, but the individuals who ran the place were given almost 300 paintings from the collection of the State Museum of Oriental Art.

The Museum of Oriental Art refused to hand the paintings over to a bunch of con artists and a legal battle commenced. The Museum reasonably claimed that they purchased and received the paintings from the artist back in 1960s and 1970s. They won the case, although 40 paintings have been lost.

Then the Roerich Center started a legal battle for the Lopuhin Mansion, which was legal property of the city of Moscow. They lost again. Then they sued the TV journalist Solovyev for calling them “a cult.” Their lawsuit was dismissed after Solovyev proved that he used a definition given to the Roerich Center by the Patriarch Alexy II.

Need I mention that the center’s world headquarters is located in New York City?

Since these people claim Buddhism as their spiritual foundation, one would think that the Dalai Lama would explain to them how immoral and materialistic they are. One would be wrong.

You see, from globalists like the Dalai Lama and Robert Kaplan, democracy, freedom, and wisdom can only exist with a free use by them of Russian labor, treasures, lands, historical buildings, and mineral resources. The moment Russians ask for money in return, they are being labeled as immoral, undemocratic, competitive, and materialistic.

How do the globalists plan to deal with the competitive and materialistic Russia, besides demanding access to the Russian children, outside of the parents and the Church influence?

With the threat of wars, of course.

Somehow the Pentagon and Washington understood that the Great Patriotic War has been a psychological trauma for generations. They decided that if they recreate the same geopolitical situation with the sanctions and armies built-up on the borders, the Russians would have such a strong emotional response to this threat of a new war with thirty or sixty countries, that the Russians would surrender without a fight.

This week Gruzia, a.k.a. Georgia (not the one in America), agreed to let NATO use its Black Sea ports in Tbilisi and Poti, and to bypass the Montreux Convention by building a NATO base near Poti.

NATO will build two US naval bases right on the border with Russia. Add to this a naval base in the historical Russian town Ochakov in Ukraine, 150 kilometers from the Russian borders, and you understand how the docile Black Sea suddenly turns into one of the most militarized zones on earth.

Gruzia shares the borders with Russia, Iran, and Turkey, which provides the Pentagon with an unrestricted opportunity to target these countries with biological and chemical weapons, with the trained terrorists and saboteur groups, with the surveillance, and other means.

 Georgia opens the Black Sea gates to Russia for the US

Georgian and Ukrainians Russia haters on Maidan

Georgia, however, seems to be the only taker for the NATO’s offers of “cooperation” in the region. 

In May, NATO declared that the deepening Armenian military alliance with Russia poses a direct threat to NATO members.

The first week of September, Armenia has dropped out of NATO military exercises in Georgia.

In September, Azerbaijan has threatened to cut off its military cooperation with NATO.

According to the Western sources, Baku reacts badly to the blames and an escalating pressure  for its “human rights violations.” Whenever the “human rights violations” are being brought up by Washington, it’s an indication to the national governments that Washington targets this country for destabilization, invasion and war.

Azerbaijan is also on the list of the countries that will become “the operational environment” for the Pentagon according to its 20-year plan.

On September 28, the President of Russia visited Turkey

With him came what looks like an entire executive branch of Russia’s government: Presidential Aide Yury Ushakov, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office and Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Energy Minister Alexander Novak, Chief of the General Staff of Russia’s Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov, Deputy Agriculture Minister Yevgeny Gromyko, Special Presidential Representative for the Syrian Settlement Alexander Lavrentyev, Rosatom CEO Alexei Likhachev, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller, and Russia’s Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Turkey Alexei Yerkhov.

During Putin’s visit to Turkey, the Pentagon made a threatening statement by saying that they will be shooting down the North Korean missiles over the Russian territory. If North Korea Fires an ICBM, the US Might Have to Shoot It Down Over Russia, because the missile-defense physics may require interceptors to fly into ‘the teeth of the Russian early warning net.’

This statement contradicted a confessions posted by the DefenseOne just days prior that the Pentagon simply was unable to shoot down the North Korean missiles, or, in fact, any other missiles: No, We Cannot Shoot Down North Korea’s Missiles

 “… reporters routinely use words like “shield” and “dome” to describe our supposed capability, giving us a false sense of security.

“If North Korea cooperated and shot their new intercontinental ballistic missile, the Hwasong-14, at the United States with adequate warning so that we could prepare, and if the warhead looked pretty much like we expect it to look, and if they only shot one, and if they did not try to spoof the defense with decoys that looked like the warhead, or block the defense with low-power jammers, or hide the warhead in a cloud of chaff, or blind the defense by attacking the vulnerable radars, then, maybe this is true. The United States might have a 50-50 chance of hitting such a missile.”

“Our anti-missile systems have never been realistically tested against any of these simple countermeasures. “

This is one reason that the Pentagon’s current director of operational testing is much more cautious in his assessments than missile defense program officials. “GMD has demonstrate a limited capability to defend the U.S. Homeland from small numbers of simple intermediate-range or intercontinental ballistic missile threats launched from North Korea or Iran,” he reports. Moreover, it is impossible, he says, to “quantitatively assess GMD performance due to lack of ground tests” and “the reliability and availability of the operational GBI’s [Ground-Based Interceptors] is low, and the MDA continues to discover new failure modes during testing.”

Since the US is not capable to defend itself, it keeps orchestrating sneaky attacks on the stability and wellbeing of its enemies and its allies, alike.

Azerbaijan is on the list of the countries to be hit by bespoke color revolution, but instead, it’s Spain who gets it.

Maidan In Spain

LLibertat Paisos Catalanas – Freedom to Catalan countries

The Catalan justice minister, Germà Gordó, stated that citizens of these areas would be offered Catalan passports and nationality. ‘Greater ‘Catalonia’, or as the Catalan nationalists refer to it, the ‘Paises Catalanes.

—————————

Other Catalan countries include the Spanish regions of Catalonia, Valencia, the Balearic Islands and parts of Aragon, as well as Roussillon in France, the Principality of Andorra, and the islands of Sicily and Sardinia, and the Greek Athens and Neopatria.

The French head of state—whether king, emperor, or president— serves as a co-prince of the Principality of Andorra.

So, France might lose its control over Andora, if Catalans declare their independence there.

Following the so-called “Madrid Pacts,” USA manage to install military bases in Spain and close the clamp on the Mediterranean sea.

The agreement was show to the public by the fascist regime of General Franco as a model of mutual aid, military and economic, between “two powers”. USA secret clauses reserved the unilateral initiative and use of the facilities. USA kept the space under American laws.

According to the Pentagon’s 20 year plan, discussed here, the Americans have just ten years to organized a controlled demolition of the European societies, to the point when the American troops will be needed to restore the civilian order and to control the civil unrest. To be able to bring the armies of the jihadists into Europe, the US wants the control over the border of Spain facing the North Africa and the control over the Balearies islands.

It also lets the US close the Mediterranean Sea for the Russian fleet on its route from the Baltic Sea to its base in Syria.

An overview of the American military presence, covert and overt in Spain.

There is a strong sense that the Catalan independence movement has been organized and funded by the same people who organized and funded Ukrainian Maidan, and the Kurds independence movement. They even use the same song.

“Cuando todos estamos juntos somos invencibles”

(“Разом нас багато, нас не подолати…”)

Greenjolly represented Ukraine at the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv with the song Razom Nas Bahato {Many of us together, we are undefeatable. Revolution is on…)

Catalonia protests footage that will make you feel like you are back on Maidan in Kiev of 2014.

An RT video titled Thousands across Catalonia Unite Against Riot Police brutality

Watch footage shown during the interview with MEP Jordi SOLÉ.

At 0:48 they show black-and-red flags of the Right Sector Ukrainian extremist nationalists party and its illegal punitive armed formations.

At 0:55 a footage of young “protesters” jumping up and down, just like the Ukrainian extremists jumped up and down on Maidan screaming “Knife the Russians” and “Mosclyaky na golyaku” meaning “Hang Russians.”

At 1:06 a national extremists red-and-black flag, again.

It’s clear that no one in Catalan consulted an international law attorney, who would tell those who carry the eternal “rallying cry for Western tribalism,” like Catalonia, The Basque, the Scots, the ‘Padania’, and the list goes on.

Five years ago, Joseph Weiler, an Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of International Law, wrote a short essay explaining how the Catalan independence is not protected by the international law and why.

“The Canadian Supreme Court, in its careful and meticulous decision on Quebec the reasoning of which remains valid today, clearly showed that none of these cases enjoy a right of secession under public international law, since all of them enjoy extensive individual and collective liberties enabling the full vindication of their national and/or cultural identity within their respective states.”

An opinion expressed by Joseph Weiler is today even more interesting since among many hats he wears one of the Co-Director of the Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization, Weiler is President of the European University Institute in Florence. He also University Professor of Law and European Union Jean Monnet Chair at New York University School of Law where he is Director of the Straus Institute for the Advanced Study of Law & Justice, and Co-Director of the Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization. He is also Editor in Chief of ICON – the International Journal of Constitutional Law.

What he really says is that the government of Spain has to show its “fascist” side for Catalonia to gain some “moral” grounds to claim its “independence.”

——

We know that no color revolution can succeed without the central government being complicit in it and without an outside assistance.

Don’t get too emotional and don’t get fooled by the “police brutality” footage, unless you absolutely know that it’s authentic and wasn’t filmed a month ago in Latvia with the crisis actors, like it was the case with the White Helmets videos, and many other cases of fake videos to trigger your compassion.

Israel openly backs the Kurd’s referendum for independence of all “Kurdish countries,” but rejects the independence of Palestinians.

Catalan President @KRLS tweeted –  This morning I called President @masoud_barzani to congratulate him on the KurdistanReferendum. We wished each other great success

Catalan President @KRLS also congratulated President @masoud_barzani on #KurdistanReferendum in a phone call today.

And, two main reasons why Spain got hit with a color revolution…

First, Russia outmuscles U.S. from Spanish gas market

The Cheniere, an American company,  has failed to fulfill its agreement with Spain. It managed to deliver only 300 million cubic meters, instead of 4.9 billion cubic meters per year, as agreed.

“Russian fuel will account for 12 percent of all gas consumed in Spain, Russian media reports.

Spanish natural gas utilities company Gas Natural Fenosa signed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) contract in November 2016 worth over 30 billion euros with Russia’s Yamal LNG, which is planning to launch a gas liquefying facility beyond the Arctic Circle in 2017.

Deliveries of Russian LNG to Spain are expected in the second quarter of 2018, Interfax news agency reported on May 30.

Yamal LNG will supply the Spanish partner with 2.5 million tons of gas over 25 years. This volume accounts for about 12 percent of Spain’s gas consumption back in 2015, Vedomosti business daily reports.”

Catalonia has its own LNG terminal owned by Enagás in Barcelona. There is also the Tarragona refinery.

The following is from the South Gas Regional Investment Plan 2011 – 2020

“FROM AN EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVE, creating a new Corridor from South to North developing the IBERIAN-FRENCH CORRIDOR opens a path to transport gas from Algeria to central Europe through France, increasing the European diversification of supply by reducing the dependence of the incumbent gas source jointly with the risks linked to security of supply.”

The Midcat pipeline Figueras-French Border

March 2015:  from Catalan News:  North African gas to reach Central Europe through Catalonia by 2020 to reduce 40% Russian dependency

“A strategic gas pipeline is to be built through the Catalan Pyrenees, linking the Iberian Peninsula with France and Central Europe. The Midcat project aims to reduce Europe’s dependency on Russian gas by 40%, diversifying the sources of supply. The pipeline should be operational by 2020..”

Now, the crisis with Russia has reignited the urge to find alternative gas suppliers for Central Europe.”

“Alternatives to Russian gas are urgently needed, not just because of the Ukraine crisis: Spain is building new pipelines and making Europe more independent of Gazprom. Natural gas from Nigeria will go to Europe.” 2014 from  Europas Abhängigkeit von Gazprom Erdgas aus der Sahara

Feb 2, 2017 – “The Midcat is a gas pipeline that would link Spain and France with the goal of allowing an Algerian gas flow into Europe.”

Second reason is that Spain tries to be a part of the OBOR.

Ukrainization of Spain

Catalonia wants to take the same role Ukraine tried to play for Russia: the most important transit route to the EU.  When Washington invaded the Ukraine, their plans were to sit on gas-oil pipelines, to collect the transfer fees and to dictate to Russia and to the EU prices and conditions of trade. To control the long-haul trucking and railroad routes from Russia and Eurasia to the EU and from the EU to Russia, China and Eurasia.

By taking over the control of Catalonia, Washington and also, probably, Tel-Aviv and Brussels will control not only Spain but also the North African trade and migrants and shipping routes in and out the Mediterranean Sea.

As of now, Washington nearly successfully blocking Europe on the East. With a color revolution in Catalonia, it tries to block Europe from the South-West.

They call this “taking a command of a blocking position.”  

A rant of Alex Calvo, a fellow with a perfectly neo-liberal bio, Alex Calvo is a Professor of International Relations and International Law, and guest professor at Nagoya University. An expert on Asian security and defense issues, he got his LLB from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS, University of London) and is currently doing an MA in Second World War Studies at the University of Birmingham. He is a former teaching and research fellow at the OSCE Academy in Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan).

Midcat Natural Gas Pipeline a reminder of Catalonia’s key Strategic location: Spain has no alternative but to negotiate

  1. “thanks to geography Spain needs Catalonia more than Catalonia needs Spain”

“Spanish officials and politicians insist that Catalonia will be excluded from the EU, forgetting that it is them that run that risk. A simple look at the map shows that Spaniards better behave and immediately recognize Catalonia, else their EU-bound lorries may suffer some unfortunate delays while being inspected by Catalan border authorities. “

  1. Catalonia wants to keep Spanish assets, including military assets. “If Madrid persists in her ways, she will be stuck with her huge national debt.”

Catalonia wants to walk away from its debt, forcing Spain to guarantee its payment or to default.

“It emerged again this month when the region’s Parliament passed a law that said a newly independent Catalonia’s economic and financial obligations will be set by “the terms that are agreed” with the nation it’s leaving, rather than offering a guarantee of full payment.”

Catalonia’s independence would set off Spain’s debt time-bomb.

The list goes on and on.

The moment Spain got a glimpse of hope for the future with cheaper Russia’s LNG and the OBOR, Washington and Co. move to destroy it.

Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin received credentials from 20 foreign ambassadors. The ceremony, which symbolizes the official start of the ambassadors’ missions in the Russian Federation, took place in the Alexander Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace.

http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/55756

The following ambassadors presented their credentials to the President of Russia: Ricardo Ernesto Lagorio (Argentine Republic), Tonci Stanicic (Republic of Croatia), Leonidas Markides (Republic of Cyprus), Jose Manuel Castillo Betances (Dominican Republic), Markus Florian Ederer (European Union), Sylvie Bermann (French Republic), Oleg Firer (Grenada), Siviengphet Phetvorasack (Lao People’s Democratic Republic), Maris Riekstins (Republic of Latvia), Michael Barth Kamphambe Nkhoma (Republic of Malawi), Mat Dris Haji Yaacob (Malaysia), Andrei Neguta (Republic of Moldova), Ko Ko Shein (Republic of the Union of Myanmar), Paulo Vizeu Pinheiro (Portuguese Republic), Ignacio Ibanez Rubio (Kingdom of Spain), Johnson Agara Olva (Republic of Uganda), Norma Bertha Pensado Moreno (United Mexican States), Jon Meade Huntsman (USA), Ahmed Salem al-Wahishi (Republic of Yemen) and Shadrick Luwita (Republic of Zambia).

Putin said: “Russian-Spanish relations go back many centuries. This year we marked 350 years since the establishment of the first diplomatic contacts between our states. Our people are bound together by the feelings of mutual sympathy and respect. There is potential for developing Russian-Spanish cooperation in many areas despite an adverse political situation. Everyone is talking about the Catalonian referendum now. Frankly, we are seriously concerned about Spain, even though this is an internal affair of the Kingdom of Spain. We hope it will overcome this crisis.”
