Tweedledum and Tweedeldee – sorry – Stoltenberg and Von der Leyen went to Latvia. They could have stayed at home. All these meetings of the keystone cops – climate summits, EU summits, NATO summits – are just bizarre by now. These people are living in a world of their own. If Mr. Mercouris wonders what willl be the thing that breaks NATO, well it has happened already. It was of course the defeat – and it was a defeat – in Afghanistan where it turned out NATO gave its full support and assistance to three hundred thousand ghost soldiers and… Read more »

I am so sick and tired of hearing about “Russian aggression” towards Ukraine when all the aggression is coming from the Ukrainian side. Russian aggression appears to amount to a commitment to protect the people of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics, so why doesn’t Ukraine stop its ridiculous behaviour, retreat from the border,… Read more »

NATO will always pull back when they come in conflict with someone who can fight back. Thank you Russia you are the only country in the world that will stop WW111. We have just been through that nonsense about honouring the war dead and spouting ”Lest We Forget” in fact we have forgotten many time since Europe has never had the guts to say no to the American warmongers.
