The West owes Russia a lot, first a sincere apology and a welcome into Europe. Russia has been and is an extremely important nation and very unjustly denied its rightful place there. What doesn’t belong to Europe is the US, not in any way whatsoever, especially because being a dictatorship.
Why does America’s anti-Russia military club NATO still exist, after the Soviet Union’s equivalent Warsaw Pact disbanded in 1991 when the Soviet Union and its communism voluntarily ended? NATO is nothing but America’s anti-Russia military club, against Russia and against any nation that supports Russia.
The US killed Gaddafi of Libya because he supported Russia in international relations. The super power created a failed state and jihadist mayhem that has virtually destroyed the country. All was done in the name of change of regime and the assault was directly supervised by the US Ambassador in Libya.
The US overthrew Yanukovych in Ukraine only because he turned down the EU’s offer to Ukraine after learning that the price-tag for Ukrainians would be $160 billion if Ukraine were to comply with the EU’s demands. There are some credible evidences that the U.S. was already organizing the coup against him starting a year before the coup, and nine months before Yanukovych turned down the EU’s offer.
The US after failing in overthrowing Assad in Syria, facilitated ISIS to make an entry and now along with many other European countries supposedly attacking ISIS bases but virtually destroying Iraq and Syria. This created worst refugee problem and to close the door for these Paris was attached by ISIS.
The US was also the leader in initiating a war against Iran, after Islamic Revolution, with the help of Iraq, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. The sanctions are there for more than three decades. Now the efforts are to split Iraq in three states. Saudi Arabia is fighting a proxy war in Yemen.
This is dictatorship and totalitarianism of the US fully supported by the West, against Russia and any other nation that isn’t buckling to the U.S. aristocracy and its allied aristocracies in Europe.
Let’s start with the results of a 2009 investigation by Germany’s Spiegel, or Mirror, magazine, which is a mainstream German news site, that’s a bit more honest than America’s equivalents. They headlined, very directly: “NATO’s Eastward Expansion: Did the West Break Its Promise to Moscow?”
They identified what that “promise” was, which Russia claims was violated, and which Spiegel was investigating: “that NATO’s expansion into Eastern Europe violated commitments made during the negotiations over German reunification.” The next sentence in Spiegel’s report states unequivocally their conclusion: “Newly discovered documents from Western archives support the Russian position.”
The question Spiegel’s article discusses isn’t whether NATO’s continued existence is an evil, but instead whether NATO should have extended eastward up to Russia’s own borders — whether, to make this matter quite clear now, if the USSR had won, and its Warsaw Pact and not NATO had continued (though neither should have continued), the Warsaw Pact should have extended itself all the way to including Mexico and/or Canada?
One is inclined to conclude that the West lies about this history and only the few people with brains and open minds will get the important point:
When the then merely West Germany was negotiating reunification of Germany with the then merely Eastern half of Germany, is exactly in accord with what Russia’s allegations have been saying all along, and exactly the opposite of what West Germany’s Foreign Minister then, Hans Dietrich Genscher, has been asserting to have been the case.
Jack Matlock, the US ambassador in Moscow at the time, has said in the past that Moscow was given a “clear commitment.” Hans-Dietrich Genscher, the German foreign minister in 1990, says this was precisely not the case.
After speaking with many of those involved and examining previously classified British and German documents in detail, it can be concluded that there was no doubt that the West did everything it could to give the Soviets the impression that NATO membership was out of the question for countries like Poland, Hungary or Czechoslovakia.
Europe remained allied with the U.S. and continues participating in NATO, especially after having been instructed by America to lie, and to have deceived Gorbachev, who behaved honorably throughout and afterward, is Europe’s great shame.
The US is also Europe’s enemy — not merely Russia’s enemy. Not merely the truth’s enemy. Not merely democracy’s enemy.
