Putin Fell Into Biden’s Trap

On Sunday, February 10th, Russia’s RT News headlined “NATO to station permanent force in east – Stoltenberg”, and reported — basically admitted — that Putin’s main international objective of preventing continuance of NATO’s enlargement right up to Russia’s borders was boomeranging and producing the exact opposite result, an acceleration of NATO’s enlargement:

The change comes after the Russian offensive in Ukraine, the bloc’s chief says

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said that the bloc will deploy a permanent full-scale military force on the eastern flank to deter Russia. The move comes in response to Moscow’s military campaign against Ukraine.

In an interview published by The Telegraph on Saturday, Stoltenberg explained that the US-led military organisation has been focused on “a very fundamental transformation” in order to better reflect the “new reality” in Europe.

“We have now asked our military commanders to provide options for what we call a reset, a more longer-term adaptation of NATO,” he said, adding that the decisions on the matter are expected at the bloc’s summit in Madrid, Spain in June.

This is part of the reset which we have to make, which is to move from tripwire deterrence to something which is more about deterrence by denial or defense. This is already in process.

Stoltenberg said last month that the bloc had 40,000 troops “under direct command,” mostly in Eastern Europe.The group’s individual members are supplying Kiev with weapons, ranging from anti-tank and anti-aircraft missile systems to tanks and armored fighting vehicles.

Moscow has repeatedly stated that it views NATO’s expansion eastward as a threat to its security, and listed Ukraine’s aspirations to join the bloc one day as one of the reasons for launching its offensive.

This admission comes after, on April 2nd, RT had already headlined “Finland can join NATO without referendum – president”. On April 7th, Reuters bannered “Prospect of Finland, Sweden joining NATO discussed at Brussels meeting: State Dept. official”. On April 8th, CNN headlined “US readies for long-term European security ramp-up after Russia’s invasion”, and opened: “The top US military general this week endorsed creating permanent US bases in Eastern Europe as a response to Russia’s attack on Ukraine.” On April 9th, CNN bannered “Finland and Sweden could soon join NATO, prompted by Russian war in Ukraine”, and opened: “Finland and Sweden could soon join NATO, moves that would likely infuriate Moscow and that officials say would further underscore Russia’s strategic error in invading Ukraine.

The person who basically controls whether or not NATO will expedite, retard, or else entirely block, a new country’s (such as Ukraine, or Finland, or Sweden) being admitted into the U.S.-created anti-Russian military alliance, which is NATO, is the President of the United States, and no one else. NATO is an extension of that one individual’s geostrategy. All U.S. allies (vassal nations) must adhere to that geostrategy.

By Russia’s invading Ukraine before Ukraine invaded its breakaway former Donbass region (which the U.S. and its NATO anti-Russian alliance had for years been training, arming, and preparing, Ukraine to do), Russia thereby became the international ‘villain’ in this war (simply by being the first of the two to invade, and, so, widely considered to be ‘the aggressor’ in it), and, thereby, scared so many people in the nearby neutralist countries, into wanting their own Government to join the anti-Russian alliance ‘for safety’s sake’ against a Russian invasion such as Russia had just done to Ukraine, even though (and few of these people probably even had thought much about this) by doing that, their own land will then become among the ones against which Russia’s missiles and nuclear weapons will become targeted against (and are not now being targeted against). It’s an invitation, in other words, to their own becoming direct targets in the U.S.-planned World War III, which the U.S. Government (ever since at least 2006) has been planning to ‘win’ — and no longer for the U.S. to be using its nuclear weapons only in order to PREVENT a global nuclear war from ever breaking out.

Biden’s plan to conquer Russia is being skillfully carried out as a continuation of the plan that his predecessor, the Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama, had brilliantly started secretly and only privately by no later than 2010, and which then started actively being planned within the Administration and the top level of Google corporation by no later than 23 June 2011, and that was held-off from enabling Putin to become aware of the plan’s possible existence until 2012, after Obama would become re-elected to a second term. Prior to that election, Obama had successfully deceived Putin (just as he had earlier deceived the Nobel committee) into believing that the U.S. wanted, in his second term of office, to come to a mutually amicable arrangement with Russia, so that both countries would be able to move forward together in peace and continue to have the (ever since 1945) existing nuclear meta-strategy, of “M.A.D.” or Mutually Assured Destruction — meaning that nuclear weapons would NEVER be used by either side for any aggressive purpose, but ONLY in order to RESPOND to an attacker that is first to use nuclear weapons against it. In America’s secret 2006 change-over to now planning to use its nuclear weapons in order to blitz-attack Russia so fast that Russia’s retaliatory weapons would be destroyed and disabled within just five minutes or even less, “M.A.D.” became replaced, in U.S. planning, by “Nuclear Primacy” — the plan to attain ultimately that extreme degree of nuclear supremacy so as to then blitz-invade and, basically, just annihilate, Russia. Putin was fooled by Obama, and therefore he was almost totally unprepared for Obama’s February 2014 coup (run by Victoria Nuland) that grabbed Ukraine, whose nearest border to Moscow is within just a five-minute missile-striking distance from hitting the Kremlin — beheading “The Bear.”

The intended future from this is, of course, a world in which the U.S. Government will be the dictator to ALL countries, and the castrated United Nations that U.S. President Harry S. Truman’s Administration shaped, will become totally replaced by whatever America’s aristocracy — the billionaires who effectively own all successful U.S. national politicians and thereby control that Government — want. It will be like a vast corporation, that’s controlled by its top few stockholders. This will be the world that coming generations will be living in, unless the main countries that are trying to prevent that — Russia and China in particular — will, somehow, become enabled to reverse the direction that the world now seems to be hurtling into (regardless of what the publics everywhere might want). Our descendants will, now, likely be experiencing that world. This is what is actually now at stake, for everybody, and especially for their descendants. It is at stake now in Ukraine, and, sadly, everywhere. The future is at stake there, for everywhere.

Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s next book (soon to be published) will be AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change. It’s about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.

The Ukrainian Military already had been turned into a NATO proxy force which already had invaded the Donbass region while preparing for a final blitzkrieg that Russia recently preempted. There’s no doubt that would have become an existential threat to Russia. Russia’s war against US-dominated NATO is a long-term one that will need to be extended beyond the Ukraine. NATO is weak and has to resort to posturing and threats; the Russian Military and economy are now strong enough to prevail, especially including economic cooperation with China. Putin had no choice but to take a stand and I think history… Read more »

‘PR’ basically means ‘influence by media’ which increasingly is suspect in the eyes of the public due of the blatant and incessant lies evidenced through the Covid-19 scam and again in this war. The real gauge of public opinion will be their reaction to the economic conditions that are being forced upon them by decisions of the officials: inflation, scarcity, significantly lower standard of living. That includes the business community that will lose a great deal especially in Europe. Many in the West assume that the actions against Russia by authorities and the media represent the general consensus, but that… Read more »

Putin might be part of the plan. An existential threat should be met with overwhelming force and dealt with decisively. Putin nixed annexing the Donbas when they asked to join the Russian Federation, then he allows himself to be “Tojoed” into making the first move, and adopts a slow moving campaign, that has been a disaster for Russia in the PR Dept.

What makes you think that “international” PR is the main part of this war? Don’t you see that Russia is not waging the PR war at all? In fact, they don’t care what all these Psakis and 5 stars armchair-generals tweet and shout. As one of US commanders recently complained-those pesky Russians don’t pickup the phone anymore. The headline of your article assumes that it would be somehow more prudent for Russia to play possum and continue do the business as usual, accepting typical Western choice of 26 flavors of jelly beans. Saying that Putin fell in Biden’s trap or… Read more »

because the MAIN part of the actual war is the international PR part,

Nonsense. You are so focused on the Western narrative that you forget that there is a whole other world apart from your myopic one. At the end of the day military might dictates reality. In Ukraine, Russia has the military might and the rest is just hot air. When Russia wins and it will, all of the international PR will count for nothing and be shown up for the fraud it is.

NATO is a some of western countries, but what about the rest of the world? It’s the holy alliance. When people in the west too will find empty shelves and be faced with dire consequences, they will fight their oppressors.
It seems to me that unlike, what you think, NATO will loose the war and the western media their brainwashing campaign.

There is no “boomerang” going on here. Don’t be daft. What is happening would have been inevitable whether it happened now or in the future. Its what the west has always wanted and it wouldn’t matter had Putin been asleep at the wheel or taking action. The only way to end this will be to make it so painful for the West that it strangles them. In the meantime the rest of us need to physically prepare for the worst. I have been for the last year stocking up for what I had hoped would never occur but a still… Read more »

100 years (China) and 10 years (Russia) of humiliation are enough. Both do not want to submit to the NWO, and set up the Mulitpolar WO. This will inevitably lead to hybrid world war. In 2014 Russia had not yet rebuilt its economy and military, it had a massive 5th column and – it had no ally. But that Russia should be subjugated, always has been and remains an eternal goal, Russia (and China) cannot escape the belligerent West, unless by military victory. The people in the western world and especially in Europe will be balcanized like Ukraine, gang raped… Read more »

“Putin fell into Biden’s trap” B/S, if he did he did it with his eyes wide open, Putin has bigger fish to fry than the Nazi Ukraine, he took the chance to break away from the West completely if anybody fell into a trap it was the West, Putin got his Oligarcs on side by the EU/UK/US nob heads seizing their cash, now they know who the enemy is, now he is getting rid of the other wreckers the NGOs. The world is bigger that the US and it’s vassal states, and 90/% of the world is not with the… Read more »

Another way of looking at this is that you have US sized personnel being trained by US military trainers and being outfitted with the latest and greatest of US gear. A great way to test your military and its equipment against a US proxy military. They also outnumber the forces you are using.
Orban may be the big winner in all this. It still takes a 100% agreement to be admitted to NATO

The trap!!!! just can’t wait to see all those Ukrainian flag wavers get the kick back, for all those sanctions waged against Russia, next Autumn / Winter will see a different kind of flag, I suspect it will be a WHITE ONE. It is a very bleak and cold spell coming to the West, and Russia hasn’t even started rolling out the counter sanctions, still those flag wavers can wrap themselves up in the Ukie flag. have a nice winter everyone.

Eric, I’m sorry but you are really mistaken. Ukraine is not Finland nor Sweden. Ukraine matters because of the deep ethnic ties to Russia as well as its location. Russia if in a confrontation doesn’t want to destroy part of the Russian world. As for Finland and Sweden, they are deluding themselves if they think that NATO can protect them. The US is thinking if we can just put our non existent hypersonic missiles in Finland or Sweden, we can attack Moscow. The question is given that Russia not only has a wide range of hypersonic missiles but multi layered… Read more »
