The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

NATO opening an office in Japan


All this week I was working on the next edition of the Global Network's newspaper Space Alert

I've now sent all the copy off to our layout design person and then it should go to the printer and be mailed soon after that. 

One of the most striking stories that indicates how serious the US-NATO war machine is about next attacking China is the story that NATO will be opening a HQ office in Japan.

NATO is planning to open a liaison office in Japan (likely hosted at Yokota Air Base), the first of its kind in Asia. The station will allow the military alliance to conduct periodic consultations with Japan and key partners in the region such as South Korea, Australia and New Zealand as China emerges as ‘a new challenge’, alongside its traditional focus on Russia. Danish Ambassador to Japan Peter Taksoe-Jensen told Nikkei Asia in a phone interview that a NATO liaison office would be the first of its kind in the Indo-Pacific and more than just symbolic. "It would be a very visible, real way to strengthen the relations between Japan and NATO," he said. "There will also be a look at interoperability," Taksoe-Jensen said, regarding how NATO and Japanese forces work together in different areas.


 BRICS is a problem for the west

There can be little doubt that the US-UK-NATO shake in fear of the growing partnership of China and Russia and the legions of nations now lining up to join BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa). BRICS is the multi-polar challenge to the western colonial exploitative capitalist system epitomized by the IMF and World Bank. More than 25 nations including Venezuela, Mexico, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Indonesia are in line to join BRICS. The US-UK-NATO cannot abide by this challenge to their global imperial control.

The question for this moment: will US-UK-NATO destroy the world in order to block the multi-polar movement now underway?

NATO war games and Biden's DU gift

The current NATO war game bumping up to the borders of Russia with hundreds of western military aircraft (fighters and bombers practicing a nuclear attack on Russia) is a clear indication that NATO continues to put a loaded gun to the heads of Moscow and Beijing. The threat is back down, submit to western authority or we WILL take you out.

Is it just a blustering threat or does the US-UK-NATO war machine really intend to carry through with their furious insanity?

The announcement earlier this week in the Wall Street Journal that Biden has decided to send Depleted-Uranium (DU) shells for Abrams tanks to Kiev is one more indication that the western terrorists are indeed willing to create a 1,000 mile radioactive zone across the eastern Ukrainian border with Russia. How is Moscow supposed to respond?

I'm certain that the Russian military will try its best to locate the storage facilities that house the American DU cargo and bomb them before the DU is shipped toward the Donbass like they recently did to the UK's shipment of DU shells to Ukraine.

African delegation meets Zelensky

Representatives from seven African countries met with Ukraine's prez Zelensky on Friday to look for solutions to the Ukraine crisis. Zelensky blew them off and said there will be no serious peace negotiations unless Russia essentially surrenders.

With that in mind how come so many western 'peace movement leaders' keep calling for negotiations and ceasefire instead of demanding that their countries stop funding, arming, training and directing the Nazi-led army of Kiev?

The African peace mission brought together South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, President of the Comoros Azali Assoumani, Senegal’s President Macky Sall, Zambia’s President Hakainde Hichilema, as well as Egypt’s Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and Florent Ntsiba and Ruhakana Rugunda, special envoys of the presidents of the Republic of the Congo and Uganda respectively.

The African delegation landed first in Poland and over 100 of the African journalists and other political representatives were forced to remain on their plane for nine hours. The top African leaders were allowed to fly to Moscow but the others stuck on the plane are still in captivity.  Poland is of course a NATO member. Do you think that this mis-treatment of the African leaders was just happenstance or was it a coordinated decision by the west to show them just how little NATO 'appreciates' their peace pilgrimage?

I guess the EU doesn't care about securing any more African resources - maybe they plan to get them when they leave for Mars.

The African delegation travels to Russia today where they will certainly be treated with greater respect I am sure.

It is our challenge to speak out and protest this western arrogance, exceptionalism and insanity while we still can.

Sometimes it also means you might have to publicly call out some of the weak leaders in our movement. This idea that only Russia can be blamed and that Biden and NATO tend to get a free pass on their Ukraine war project is just not going to fly anymore.
