The new European death drive threatens Russia

Europe has largely given up on itself, it has embraced Nihilism. This internal death drive now threatens Russia.




Wahhabism is not Islam, it is a death cult. Fascism is not a legitimate political movement, it too is a death cult. But there is another phenomenon gripping Europe, one that whilst not actively praising death, seems to deny the many strands of commonality which the wider human world might associate with life. I’m speaking of the cult of Nihilism that has gripped Europe.

When I say Europe, I really mean northern and eastern Europe. The sun-kissed sands of the generally anti-war Mediterranean are a far cry from the snow-covered forests of the north and east where NATO missile launchers blossom like Christmas trees.

Nihilism is best defined as the wilful denial of any set of beliefs. It is the worship and veneration of nothingness. It bears some relation to what Freud described as Thanatos or ‘death drive’. When the natural aggression of the human psyche does not have healthy outlets, it will turn this drive inwards. This is what the Nihilistic states of Europe are doing to their own people, culture and homelands.

It is no coincidence that a group of psychopaths in late 19th century Russia, responsible for the assassination of Tsar Alexander II, called themselves The Nihilists. Now however, it is not Russian madmen who threaten to destroy their own state, the neo-Nihilists are doing so in Europe.

Recently, troops, tanks and missiles have been brought en masse to Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland and Norway. The willing bidders of NATO’s will have coalesced to dance around the instruments of death like a strange satanic gang.

The ordinary people of such countries are left mostly in the dark, except for those who are intellectually lazy enough to buy into the relentless propaganda about how Russia threatens their survival due to the fact that Russia exists. All the while local politicians are pillaging the economy and many young people, especially in the Baltic states are emigrating like rats leaving a sinking ship.

Russia has all but given up on meaningful relations with the aforementioned regions of Europe. In the great global divides, Russia has realised something that Europe has yet to do. Things have shifted between ‘east and west’ to ‘north and south’ and it isn’t the first time such a shift has occurred. This is especially true in European history.

In the latter days of the Roman Empire, the great battles were no longer about west versus east, Latin/Hellenic peoples versus Persians. Instead, the battle became one of north and south between the Latinised peoples of southern Europe and the barbarians of Northern Europe.

This shifted by the 11th century as the Christian church split between a Roman Catholic side and an Orthodox Christian side centred round the Greek Patriarchy of Constantinople. The subsequent Mongol invasion of Russian lands and later Turkic invasion of Greek lands, solidified this east-west schism.

However, by the 15th century in Europe, this had once again shifted to a north-south divide. The split in western Christianity between a largely Protestant north and a Roman Catholic south, once again intellectually, politically and spiritually, split Europe along a north-south axis.  The so-called ‘scramble for Africa’ in the 19th century revived a north-south divide, as the powers of post-Napoleonic Europe looked to conquer Africa for her immense wealth and resources.

By the 20th century however, a new East-West divide set in, this was made ever more magnified due to the Cold War.

Today, many in America and northern/eastern Europe still see the world as a great East-West divide in which Russia is the logos of the east. Russia however sees things differently. Russia’s great allies are to the south. This includes, China, India, Syria, possibly Egypt, Iran, South Africa and indeed much of the rest of the continent and much of Latin America.

Contrary to the claims by Donald Tusk, Russia has no desire to divide Europe. Europe’s doing a good enough job of that on its own. Russia would prefer unity in Europe because, frankly, most European countries are increasingly insignificant to the wider world; a wider world which of course includes Russia.

But the Nihilism of far too many in Europe would rather fill their lands with weapons to fight a war that no one intends to provoke except them, rather than to accept the fact that Russia is a neighbour and not a threat.

Trump Has Gifted “No More Wars” Policy Position To Bernie Sanders (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 148.

Alex Christoforou



RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss how US President Donald Tump appears to have ceded his popular 2016 ‘no more wars’ campaign message and policy position to Bernie Sanders and any other US 2020 candidate willing to grad onto a non-interventionist approach to the upcoming Democrat primaries.

“Is Bernie Stealing Trump’s ‘No More Wars’ Issue?” by Patrick J. Buchanan…

The center of gravity of U.S. politics is shifting toward the Trump position of 2016.

“The president has said that he does not want to see this country involved in endless wars… I agree with that,” Bernie Sanders told the Fox News audience at Monday’s town hall meeting in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Then turning and staring straight into the camera, Bernie added:

“Mr. President, tonight you have the opportunity to do something extraordinary: Sign that resolution. Saudi Arabia should not be determining the military or foreign policy of this country.”

Sanders was talking about a War Powers Act resolution that would have ended U.S. involvement in the five-year civil war in Yemen that has created one of the great humanitarian crises of our time, with thousands of dead children amidst an epidemic of cholera and a famine.

Supported by a united Democratic Party on the Hill, and an anti-interventionist faction of the GOP led by Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee of Utah, the War Powers resolution had passed both houses of Congress.

But 24 hours after Sanders urged him to sign it, Trump, heeding the hawks in his Cabinet and National Security Council, vetoed S.J.Res.7, calling it a “dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities.”

With sufficient Republican votes in both houses to sustain Trump’s veto, that should be the end of the matter.

It is not: Trump may have just ceded the peace issue in 2020 to the Democrats. If Sanders emerges as the nominee, we will have an election with a Democrat running on the “no-more-wars” theme Trump touted in 2016. And Trump will be left defending the bombing of Yemeni rebels and civilians by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia.

Does Trump really want to go into 2020 as a war party president?

Does he want to go into 2020 with Democrats denouncing “Trump’s endless wars” in the Middle East? Because that is where he is headed.

In 2008, John McCain, leading hawk in the Senate, was routed by a left-wing first-term senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, who had won his nomination by defeating the more hawkish Hillary Clinton, who had voted to authorize the war in Iraq.

In 2012, the Republican nominee Mitt Romney, who was far more hawkish than Obama on Russia, lost.

Yet, in 2016, Trump ran as a different kind of Republican, an opponent of the Iraq War and an anti-interventionist who wanted to get along with Russia’s Vladimir Putin and get out of these Middle East wars.

Looking closely at the front-running candidates for the Democratic nomination of 2020 — Joe Biden, Sanders, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker — not one appears to be as hawkish as Trump has become.

Trump pulled us out of the nuclear deal with Iran negotiated by Secretary of State John Kerry and reimposed severe sanctions.

He declared Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, to which Iran has responded by declaring U.S. Central Command a terrorist organization. Ominously, the IRGC and its trained Shiite militias in Iraq are in close proximity to U.S. troops.

Trump has recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, moved the U.S. Embassy there, closed the consulate that dealt with Palestinian affairs, cut off aid to the Palestinians, recognized Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights seized from Syria in 1967, and gone silent on Bibi Netanyahu’s threat to annex Jewish settlements on the West Bank.

Sanders, however, though he stands by Israel, is supporting a two-state solution and castigating the “right-wing” Netanyahu regime.

Trump has talked of pulling all U.S. troops out of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet the troops are still there.

Though Trump came into office promising to get along with the Russians, he sent Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine and announced a pullout from Ronald Reagan’s 1987 INF treaty that outlawed all land-based intermediate-range nuclear missiles.

When Putin provocatively sent 100 Russian troops to Caracas — ostensibly to repair the S-400 anti-aircraft and anti-missile system that was damaged in recent blackouts — Trump, drawing a red line, ordered the Russians to “get out.”

Biden is expected to announce next week. If the stands he takes on Russia, China, Israel and the Middle East are more hawkish than the rest of the field, he will be challenged by the left wing of his party, and by Sanders, who voted “no” on the Iraq War that Biden supported.

The center of gravity of U.S. politics is shifting toward the Trump position of 2016. And the anti-interventionist wing of the GOP is growing.

And when added to the anti-interventionist and anti-war wing of the Democratic Party on the Hill, together, they are able, as on the Yemen War Powers resolution, to produce a new bipartisan majority.

Prediction: By the primaries of 2020, foreign policy will be front and center, and the Democratic Party will have captured the “no-more-wars” political high ground that Candidate Donald Trump occupied in 2016.

Over 200 killed, hundreds injured in series of blasts at Sri Lankan hotels & churches

A series of bombings hit churches and hotels across Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, killing more than 200 people.





Via RT…

A series of eight explosions rocked Catholic churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka as Christians began Easter Sunday celebrations, with over 200 killed and hundreds injured, media reported, citing police.

The blasts started at around 8:45am local time at St. Anthony’s Church in Colombo and St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, a Catholic-majority town outside of the capital. The Zion Church in Batticaloa on the eastern coast was also targeted. At around the same time, the Shangri-La, Cinnamon Grand and Kingsbury five-star hotels were also hit, police confirmed.

Two more explosions happened later in the day, targeting two more locations in Colombo. All attacks appear to have been coordinated.

At least 207 people were killed, Reuters reported, citing police. More than 450 were injured in the attacks.

Alleged footage of the aftermath, shared on social media, showed chaos and large-scale destruction inside at least one of the churches.
