Operation Barbarossa II: Setting The Stage For War

7 February 2020 — New Eastern Outlook

NEO COLLAGE 5832I have written several times about the continuing NATO preparations for an attack on Russia, a second Operation Barbarossa, the code name for the Nazi invasion of the USSR in 1941. Circumstances prompt me to write about it again, for as of the last week in January the Americans and their gang of lieutenant nations in NATO have commenced the biggest military exercises in 25 years to take place in Europe. The code name for this operation is Defender-Europe 20 but we can interpret that as Attack-Russia 20; in effect a preparation for an attack on Russia comparable to the Nazi invasion in 1941 that killed 27 million Soviet citizens, wounded countless more and destroyed everything west of the Urals and led ultimately to the crushing of the Nazis that launched the attack.

While millions this week stared at Iowa and Washington with worried amazement, confusion or anger, Germany, too, had its own messy confusion—which turned into a frightening alarm signal!

For the very first time, a state government—in Thuringia—was able to achieve rule with the support of the far, far right Alternative for Germany (AfD), a party whose leaders are in a continuous flirt with Nazi phrases, Nazi goals and Nazi methods. Every other party has sworn up and down never ever to have anything to do with AfD! Although there were suspiciously contrary murmurs in some circles of the Christian Democrats (CDU, Merkel’s party), this pledge had been kept. Until Wednesday, February 5, 2020.

Kleptotors and the DWP

Kleptotors and the DWP

By TruePublica Editor: You’ve just been unexpectedly transported to the alien nation of Kleptotors 186. The planet has substantial mineral wealth and food diversity and is populated with a sophisticated society arranged around the type of democratic principles we are used to back on Earth. Unfortunately, the wealth of the Kleptos has come about through corrupt leaders (see – dedicated Wikipedia page) that use their power to exploit the people and natural resources of their own territory in order to extend their personal wealth and political powers. Sadly, this system involves the misappropriation of public funds at the expense of the wider population.
