It’s about much more than just the fact that the Russian army has positioned itself against the Ukrainian military. The Prussian General Carl von Clausewitz said: „War is the continuation of politics by other means“. Politically, this war is about the reasons for Russia’s „special operation“. The West was not ready to hold serious talks with the Kremlin about the origins and development of the conflict. Putin’s hand was rejected. The consequences for Europe and the USA will be dramatic. Russia will win this meta-political and earthly war. The West is slowly beginning to realize this reality.
Only recently the French ambassador to the United Nations admitted that it is a pipe dream that Ukraine could liberate Donbass and Crimea.
A growing number of Western politicians are becoming aware of the cost this conflict is bringing to Europe, the United States and the world at large. And they realize that the outcome will not be what they had hoped. The masquerade of the West, the false promises, the rampant poverty and the moral and intellectual neglect of Europe and the United States of America can no longer be hidden.
The United States and Europe thought they could run the world, control the world’s energy security and supply, and impose sanctions on the Russian economy. The exact opposite has happened. In the west it goes steeply downhill. Businesses are closing and unemployment is rising, the cost of energy and food is no longer affordable for many citizens, and the millions of “needy people and skilled workers” from “Weissmannichtgenau” also cost taxpayers a fortune.
Europe and the United States were convinced that economic sanctions would bring Putin to his knees and he would „crawl“ out of the theater of war. The Russians, however, have seen through the lies and frauds of the West and have shown that they will no longer allow themselves to be dragged through the arena by the nose ring. Those times are over, and if things weren’t so dramatic, one might even feel „secret joy“ at the exposure of Western politicians.
Attack strategies of the West
How should the West react to Putin’s „special operation“ in Ukraine in February this year? No one thought of talking to Putin about the past, for „good reason“. Naming the facts, background and goals of Middle East expansion would reinforce Putin’s accusation against the West. One could not risk losing face, especially as the population’s trust in the politicians‘ credibility is decreasing and social unrest is to be expected. It was therefore necessary to keep the truth out of the game as far as possible, to maintain the illusion of peace, and to brand Putin as the „evil“ par excellence.
In the power centers of the West, a number of new additional strategies were then decided upon. Sanctions against the Russian economy and the support of the canonized Kiev „freedom fighters“ with weapons, war logistics, money and the corresponding propaganda should drive the „villain“ Putin „from the field“. Unfortunately, from the perspective of the Atlanticists, these strategies were also unsuccessful. Vladimir Putin’s retreat did not take place. Here, too, on the contrary, Putin grew stronger every day and his speeches and statements are attracting increasing interest.
“The Western system, […] a theoretical construct because it is not unified and it is clearly a highly complex conglomerate, has taken a number of steps in recent years, and especially in recent months, pointing to an escalation of the situation.” Vladimir Putin on 10/29/2022, Valdai meeting.
Defense Strategies in the East
The Russians indicated well before the Western sanctions that they were prepared for and capable of absorbing Western measures. In order to compensate for the loss of income from the terminated energy supply contracts, lucrative deals have been concluded with India, China and other countries in the East. But the West has no plan B.
The Russians took all this into account and calculated it. Basically, Putin doesn’t have to do much. The West is dismembering itself. dr With his speeches and statements, Vladimir Putin (Economics) accompanies the slow suicide of the West. His analyzes of the economic and spiritual chaos in the West, the causes of the Ukraine conflict, and the potential for an economic collapse in Western industries are also offers for discussion, but are not understood as such.
Ukrainian nationalism dominates and undermines the European idea, I mean the real European idea, not the current one that has submitted to Ukrainian nationalism and, moreover, has declared it the political agenda of the West.
The European idea of squeezing nationalism out of the minds of Western European populations and immigrating a Euro-international species is rightly criticized. Loss of national identity can never lead to diverse societies, multiculturalists should know. National identities must not be given up. They are the basis of our cultures.
Curiously enough, the practiced European-Ukrainian nationalism led to the strengthening of Polish, German, French, Hungarian and English nationalism. Each of the 27 EU countries is now thinking of itself.
The nation states will increasingly divide apart. Hungary has already broken away by forging its own energy deal with Russia to survive, and when the reality of the coming winter hits, more nations will break away from European Union and NATO policies and adopt policies that aimed at protecting the life and infrastructure of their own countries.
The war in Ukraine will change the face of Europe in a way that Europe has been trying to prevent since the end of World War II.
The map of Europe is redrawn.
