The European Union has hypocritically extended sanctions on Russia and the Russian autonomous Republic of Crimea in support of the politically- and economically-failed state of Ukraine. At the same time, the EU has threatened the sovereignty of Greece for failing to adhere to confiscatory and usurious financial policies set by the banking gnomes of Frankfurt and London, the same bankers that are propping up a corrupt government in Kiev. Nothing spells hypocrisy more than what is taking place in Europe at the direction of the «Eurocrats» of Brussels, their military centurions in NATO, and their overall puppet masters in Washington.
While the Group of 7 leaders gathered at Adolf Hitler’s favorite vacation spot, Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the Bavarian Alps, their host, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, warned Greece to reach an austerity-ridden financial loan deal with the European «troika» of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), EU, and European Central Bank or face swift retaliation from the global bankers. Meanwhile, Ukraine was offered generous IMF and European bail out deals in return for steering the country further into the clutches of the EU and NATO. Only among the G-7 is Greek Prime Minister Alex Tsipras seen as more of an international problem than either Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko or Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. However, it is not only in pressuring Greece, the cradle of democracy, and in backing an all-but-failed state, Ukraine, that the G-7 becoming an irrelevant relic of the past while stumbling and bumbling on the international stage.
The West is also trying to diplomatically and economically freeze out from the international stage Russia and nations that depend on their very existence and security on Russia. The policy by the EU, G-7, and NATO has been a disaster, not for Russia, but for the West. Greece, which has been squeezed economically, as much as a nation can be, by the international bankers, has drawn closer to Russia and has agreed to a major deal that will see the Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline built through Greece. An attempt by the West to foster a Ukrainian-style coup d’état against the government of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski in Macedonia, which is also a transit nation for the Turkish Stream pipeline, failed when the Macedonian people became aware of the roles played by international provocateurs like George Soros, the U.S. National Endowment for Democracy (NED), Kosovo Liberation Army terrorist doyen and Kosovo foreign minister Hashim Thaci, and the U.S. State Department’s femme fatale Victoria Nuland-Kagan in the coup plot. Serbia, which is all-too-aware of the themed revolution antics of Soros, as it was the first to fall victim of such a revolution in the 2000 «Bulldozer Revolution» hatched by the Soros-funded Otpor!, is also a transit nation for the Turkish Stream project and on full alert for any staged street demonstrations funded by Mr. Soros and his Central Intelligence Agency friends.
When various nations are pressed against a wall by a common enemy they tend to put aside petty differences and unite against their common foe. For this reason, a primarily Christian Orthodox bulwark against Western military and economic imperialism is being built up by Russia, Greece, Macedonia, and Serbia, with encouragement from Cyprus and the Srpska Republic of Bosnia. More and more Western politicians, including Czech Communist Party Member of the European Parliament Miloslav Ransdorf are breaking the back of the EU sanctions program against Crimea. Ransdorf recently announced he would visit the Russian autonomous republic that voted overwhelmingly for retrocession from Ukraine to Russia. Ransdorf has called on Europe to break from American tutelage and lift the anti-Russian sanctions imposed not only on Russia but also on Crimea, the autonomous city of Sevastopol, and the self-proclaimed eastern Ukrainian republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. Ransdorf’s views are no mere anomaly in the European Parliament as they are shared by leftist and rightist Euro-skeptic parties alike.
Although the status quo enthusiasts of the U.S. State Department, British Foreign Office, and the French Quai d'Orsay foreign ministry have applied pressure on nations not to recognize the retrocession of Crimea and Sevastopol to Russia, the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia from Georgia, the independence of Transnistria and the autonomy of pro-Russian Gagauzia from Moldova, the secession of Donetsk and Lugansk from Ukraine, and the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh from Azerbaijan, these nations have established strong ties among themselves with some even enjoying a degree of diplomatic support from outside their own club of «battered nations».
Not only do Abkhazia and South Ossetia recognize the sovereignty of one another, but Abkhazia and South Ossetia have secured recognition from Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Nauru, as well the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, which is a full member of the African Union. Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Transnistria, and Nagorno-Karabakh have established their own alliance of nations that have been rejected by the West – the Community for Democracy and Rights of Nations. These nations have pooled their resources to fight against diplomatic isolation. Although there is no word on whether Donetsk and Lugansk will join the Community, to do so would certainly make sense. As Euro-skeptic and populist leftist parties increase their parliamentary strength throughout Europe, an enlarged «community of outcast nations» could make their presence felt in the European Parliament and at the United Nations.
Many years ago, the Japanese intelligence agency, the Cabinet Research Office, decided that Japanese intelligence agents in Western Europe would do well to establish informal liaison with a number of separatist parties in countries like France, Spain, and Britain. The Japanese foresaw a time when Catalonia, Brittany, Scotland, Wales, and other aspirant nations would succeed in gaining independence from their colonizers. The way Japan saw it, why not make friends with these culturally-distinct societies early on in order to benefit from the eventual goodwill from these nations after they achieved independence? Russia and its cultural and ethnic sphere of nations could benefit from this Japanese experience and seek to establish ties with suppressed nations throughout Europe and the world. When the people of Scotland, Wales, Catalonia, and even Quebec, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and Greenland understand that they share much in common with the colonized peoples of eastern Ukraine, Abkhazia, and other «community of outcast nations», they will make common cause with their downtrodden colleagues in the former Soviet space.
In 2009, Catalonia invited an Abkhazian football team to participate in a «Cup of Nations» tournament in Barcelona, which featured not only Catalonian and Basque (Eusakdi) teams but also one from the British-occupied South Atlantic island of Saint Helena, which also includes Ascension, where NATO and the U.S. National Security Agency maintain bases, and Tristan da Cunha. However, the Spanish foreign ministry turned down the Abkhazian team’s visa requests, thus earning Madrid the further enmity of not only Catalonia but also Euskadi, tiny Saint Helena, as well as teams from Russia, the Czech Republic, France, Australia, and other countries. The West believes it can play «soccer politics» against Russia’s hosting of the next World Cup by indicting FIFA’s senior officials, however, two sides can play at soccer politics as seen by Catalonia’s invitation to Abkhazia.
There are more ways other than expanding the Community for Democracy and Rights of Nations to include more outcast nations, creating new sporting venues where «battered nations» can carry their national flags with pride, and practicing Japanese-style cultural diplomacy with separatist aspirant nations around the world in order to break the West’s sanctions and boycott machinations. There are a number of original methods that can be employed to outsmart George Soros, who believes he is the master of «out-of-the-box» international strategy to bring about change on his own terms. Let’s just count the ways.
