What if if there are more bad guys in the Ukraine conflict than we think. And what if the really big ones pulling the strings are hidden?
It’s become increasingly clear that both the US and many EU countries, as well as Britain, want the war in Ukraine to continue. There’s been very little meaningful push for a negotiated solution, in spite of the carnage that is taking place.
Instead, the emphasis has been on getting more and more weapons into Ukraine.
That may please American armament manufacturers but it's hard to see how Europe benefits from the conflict.
Almost 40% of European gas imports are imported from Russia via pipelines through Ukraine and the Baltic Sea. 25% of their oil imports also come from Russia, mostly via tankers. If these arrangements are disrupted or canceled many European countries will have to pay a lot more for energy imports. That could severely damage their industries.
Moreover, if the current war intensifies it could explode into their own territory. Why would they want to risk that?
Is it possible that the big reason for the war has very little to do with Ukraine itself? Could the real motive be an attempt by NATO countries to "fix" the increasing vulnerability of the present global financial empire, which is almost entirely dominated by the US, Britain and the Europe?
That vulnerability exists for two reasons.
The first is growing de-dollarization seen in organizations like the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) New Development Bank (NDB) and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). These initiatives could, if they catch on, challenge the dominance of both the American dollar and the Euro as the go-to reserve currencies for international exchanges. The very real fear in Western financial towers is that the Global South will move in favour of these new systems.
Hence Russia, as one of the major investors in the NDB and EEU, must be destabilized. What better way to do that than to tie the county up in a costly and exhausting war? And where better to provoke that war than Ukraine with its tensions between the Ukrainian speaking west of the country and the Russian speaking east?
Perhaps that explains why 40% of members in the Ukrainian militia groups that have fomented so much violence in Eastern Ukraine over the last few years have apparently been foreign mercenaries. One has to wonder who has been footing the bill for that, since it's hard to imagine the Ukrainian government being able to afford that expenditure. Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe with a gross national income per capita of $3,540 US (2020 statistics, Atlas method).
Secondly, the destabilization of Russia needs to happen soon, since the massively overinflated stock markets of the Western World are due for a “correction”, one that might be even more dramatic than the 2008 financial crisis. Financial elites understand that If the stock markets start to plunge and interest rates continue to rise that could be a trigger for Third World countries to actually default on their debts and simply abandon the current system, but only if they have an alternative to go to.
These Asian alternatives, which entail replacing the dollar with a basket of currencies from different countries, would be a seismic shift if they were to be embraced. Some say it would be the end of the American and European global dominance. There’s no way that that’s not going to be heavily resisted.
Could it be possible then, that the real puppet masters pushing the Ukraine war are Western financial elites, well hidden from view? It is not a hypothesis you will hear or see in our media. There we are given a simplistic story of a small nation, courageously led by a heroic leader standing up to an evil villain. It’s a narrative designed to tug at our heart and our sense of compassion.
But, do you really believe NATO governments, who have never shown any remorse at the death and destruction their incursions have caused in Libya, Syria and Iraq, would suddenly feel moved to risk nuclear war to protect Ukrainians?
Or is Ukraine just a pawn in a geopolitical financial power struggle, one that could massively backfire on the West? And have the Ukrainian people been conned or coerced into accepting a war that could drag on for a long time and ultimately end very badly for them?
Perhaps we should be asking more questions - and expecting more from our media.
