The future of Europe is in the East, not in the West

The future of Europe is in the East, not in the WestThe future of Europe is in the East, not in the West


The European Union is facing a real dilemma: for decades, economically, militarily and politically, this union of states has focused on the declining US, while Europeans depend on energy supplies from Russia. Perhaps it is time to rethink the relationship with the eastern neighbor?

An analysis of the current situation shows that the current European geopolitics is a clear threat to the future development of the continent and its people. We, Western Europeans (that is, as I understand us, politicians, media workers, the majority of the population, blinded by the unprecedented one-sided propaganda of the establishment against Russia) have been focusing our economic, political and military activities for decades on a country that, guided solely by its egoistic goals, as if octopus shrouded the globe and wipes its feet on international law, when it pleases it - the United States.

We contact the wrong friend.

It is a country that not only contains a Guantanamo prison camp that is contrary to international law, but also stubbornly opposes to extradite its own war criminals to the international tribunal. However, she persistently seeks the extradition of war criminals from other nations. We are talking about a country that, using so-called anti-terrorism laws, monitors worldwide, allows using drones to kill an incalculable number of citizens in other countries (since they are supposedly terrorists), overthrows the leadership of other states, occupies them, and we must dutifully to participate in this.

We help our “transatlantic friends”, whose policies are determined by lobbyists and the military-industrial complex, and even aim now to conclude a “free trade zone”, which will allow concerns to stand on a par with state apparatus. We are talking about "friends" who listen to us and follow us so that their concerns will receive significant advantages.

Who allowed such an irresponsible policy that, as a result of the bankruptcy of Leman, turned into an unprecedented crisis of finance and real estate? Our kleptocratic governments and bonzes in Brussels, which are influenced by lobbyists from the financial sector, have done everything to ensure that the plutocrats could hold the whole world by the throat after a while.

Russia is not our enemy

Nevertheless, Russia, which with the advent of V.Putin’s leadership in it, has become a real alternative to hedonic administration in the West, which has punctuated the kleptomania oligarchs and removed them from their cases, is portrayed as a rogue state. This is not because Russia, mainly for religious reasons, erased homosexuality from the public sphere (in this case, the entire Muslim world, as well as such states as India should have been targeted), but for the reason that Russia does not give plutocracy to manipulate oneself, as was the case during the rule of B. Yeltsin’s “drinker”.

And if the German press is outraged by the arrest of the Pussy Rayot group that criticizes the government, it forgets that this practice already exists in Germany for a long time. There, musicians performing songs critical of the government are subject to fines or arrests. Only one difference: basically the "right" groups are punished. However, in the case of Ukraine, the German press is not worried about the right or left orientation - the main thing is that the fragmented opposition in this country should be “pro-European” and “anti-Russian”. And it does not matter that the right-wing extremist Ukrainian party “Freedom” closely interacts with the German ultra-right National Democratic Party, whose activities they are trying to ban.

We, the “Westerners,” are threatening Russia with deploying missile bases on our eastern border, and Putin has no choice but to place missile launchers on Russia's western borders. And if, before the First World War, first of all, the British and French did everything to leave the German Reich no other alternative than war, now it seems that Russia is becoming a victim of the current deterrence policy. Today’s headwashing in the Western media increasingly resembles the one that took place in England and France in relation to Germany before the First World War.

Europe needs a new geopolitical orientation

Russia is not our adversary, neither are the US our friends. If European states want to have a future, then we must completely rethink our geopolitics. We should not treat the United States better than Russia or, for example, China. Being a resource-poor continent, we should not create an enemy image in the face of our resource-rich neighbor. We, the “Westerners,” who themselves have more than enough problems, have no right to act as moral apostles, all the more so, guided by some dubious considerations.

Of course, we can express our bewilderment at some domestic political events in Russia, but at the same time we should not forget that the door in our own house remains unlocked. Similarly, we must pay attention to the deficiencies in the United States and other countries. Either we treat all countries equally, or we continue to stupidly follow the path of foreign policy polarization. However, it should be clearly understood that in the latter case, we are entering the uncertain future, being blind in one eye and relying on the political course of Washington, with a high probability - not on the right knight.

A good blacksmith always has enough forging for iron in the furnace: in the event of an error, he can safely work on. In this regard, it is not clear why we Europeans are putting the reins of our future into the hands of the Americans, instead of determining the direction of movement. What are we going to do if our current traction horse - the USA - is lame and starts failing? We rightly have a reputation as vassals and "voluntary workers". Therefore, we cannot be trusted in the rest of the world. Neither the Russians, nor the Chinese, nor in the Islamic world. In this regard, we need substantial “emancipation” from the United States and closer cooperation with those countries that, for ideological reasons and because of political blinders, are being defaulted by us.

By "We (Western) Europeans" I mean politicians and the media, as well as the majority of the population that blindly follows an unprecedented unilateral propaganda harassment against Russia.

      I think the article is not accidental. Europe now in the person of Germany, France and Italy was about to free itself from this reputation. In 2014-15, European enterprises will begin to withdraw from China, place them in the countries of Eastern and Southern Europe, and it is also planned to transfer many existing industries there from Western Europe. It is planned to use Africa as a raw material base. By and large, this concept means a rejection of globalization and some closeness of the European space. Let's see what happens.

        In the near future, Germany will begin to crush Brussels. Le Monde writes that Merkel, in her last meeting with EU leaders, drew parallels between 2014 and 1914. In all seriousness. Madam Chancellor transparently hints to everyone about the upcoming period of tough geopolitical clashes, the redistribution of spheres of influence and borders, in the context of the aggravation of the global economic and political crisis. The EU is making every effort to break apart the EU nation states, turning Europe into a "federation of regions" with a single government, destroying the influence of national elites and creating a system in which power is built on the vertical of regional barons and a strong center in Brussels. Anyone who doubts the EU's desire to destroy nation-states reads: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/10041817/Federal-Europe-will

        In 2014-15, the withdrawal of European production from China will begin, placing them in Eastern and Southern Europe

        laughing
        Are you seriously? What is the carry? What kind of production? The USA and Europe themselves invested in China in pursuit of profits and themselves gave birth to a dragon, which strangles them. Production, factories today is not a problem, and it has nothing to do with it, they will remain in China as they were, especially such a domestic market. As for Eastern Europe, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland are already continuous factories, and even in Germany and France it is not empty. The main problem is the market, purchasing power and cost of production, and in the WTO conditions China simply has no competitors, this is why there are problems in Europe, even at the Hanover exhibition you can’t get into the Chinese.
        It seems to me that China is doing with Europe and the USA what they used to do with others. So there will be no transfer of production, maximum trade wars and which, incidentally, are already behind the scenes. In short, Europe has a difficult dilemma, either its own market for its own production, or the loss of the Chinese market and more! But Putin, very beautifully hung those and those at different ends of the pipe ...

          It’s the only way Europe can survive. Under the rule of politics over the economy. Merkel and others understand this very well. If their plans begin to be implemented, as well as the plans of the Republicans in the United States (and they advocate the return of production to the United States), then the world very much will change. China will have a very difficult time.

            But this is unlikely. After reducing the cost, this is not realistic, increasing the cost will lead to the collapse of the system, which is used to only make a profit at a short distance. It’s like a nipple system, it works only in one direction, otherwise, the elephant is blown away. Which we are observing.

      somehow everything is doubtful. they suddenly start thinking about choosing friends when their "best and main friend" (the traction horse) starts limping and failing.
      This whole situation is similar to the actions of puppets: where it is better, we’ll go there.
      Although in general the words are sound and logical.

Transmission was legalized, some EU countries legalized pedophilia, drug trafficking, as in the SGA, raised terrorism on their shoulders, and these children will pull back after Syria "home to the EU" And the last nail in the EU coffin, these are migrant workers of all countries, gop to the heap, plus Islamization, Germany somehow made forecasts of demographics in Russia, we are predicting a quick demise. But as they say, they do not see logs in their eyes. My opinion is The EU has long been poured into a sump, so to speak, wasted into consumption, but what is the purpose of this, those who benefit from it?

        This terrible disease, nicknamed at that time the "Great Pestilence" or "Black Death", devastated Europe, sowing panic in the hearts of the living. There was no escape from her. At first, an unbearable headache fell upon the person, febrile heat was replaced by chills. But unlike a simple fever, over time, large swelling filled with pus appeared on the body of a plague patient.
        Everything is painted according to the notes, and the pus climbs, and their head hurts, the symptoms are the same.

        What nonsense? Alexander Nevsky did not begin rapprochement with the east. Alexander Nevsky maintained neutrality with the Mongoloids, in order not to fight on two fronts and to be able to deal with an opponent in the West. And he succeeded.
        And already his descendants, after several generations, were even with the enemy from the east.

      Belogor .... it’s time for Europeans to think about their future; in my opinion, they and their partners overseas are starting to get into a dead end.

      Since 1945, the Europeans are not partners for the United States, but their vassals. What kind of partnership can we talk about when there are military bases (with nuclear weapons) on the territory of Europe and are controlled only by the United States. Europe "modestly" keeps silent about this, while, at the behest his master, constantly barks at Russia. EU will not get closer to Russia until
      until he frees himself from the "American embrace."

        Do we need these rapprochements with this "abscess" in the person of the EU? What kind of country are we ?! We always climb into some kind of city, pull out those who have been spoiling us for centuries? Forest orderlies for life?
        Americans impose their friendship on "profitable" or strategically needed countries, and when they have sucked all the juices out of them, they give up. And we are right there! And we begin to recover by investing resources in what the Americans destroyed. Having recovered a little, those who were helped begin to spoil Russia again. Maybe it's worth learning something from amers?

    More and more often come across articles where the West begins to talk about Russia, positively. I can’t even believe that it will reach them, to the west, that we are neighbors, and America is quarreling us. And all the benefits go away, but the tension remains. Kama needs violent neighbors.

    There is a systematic redeployment of NATO military infrastructure to the borders of RUSSIA, it does not see this only blind.

    Sound thoughts, but they are unlikely to reach the majority. There is a good saying "You cannot wash a black dog to the white" - and this has been confirmed more than once by European history. Less than 5 years after the liberation from the Nazi occupation of Europe, the NATO military alliance was created against the true liberator of the USSR (Russia). Now they are following the USA. And if you touch more deeply, Russia after Vladimir fell apart into separate principalities and the final conquest according to the plans of the Vatican should be carried out in the middle of the XIII century after the war with the Turks. The united knightly armies were already prepared for the final defeat of Russia. But in 1236 an army of Asiatic Siberian Rus came from Siberia and together with their allies: Smolyans, Vladimirs and others "to smithereens" defeated the knightly union of Western Europe (thanks to the "Tatar-Mongols" the knightly army of the masters of the Western world perished) And so each since Europe has united against Russia, I think it is not necessary to cite the well-known facts of genetic hatred or "fear" of the West, but there will always be a "shepherd". Of course, there are sane people there, for example, the author of the article (plus this article), but the "black western elite" always wants to see us as enemies or "future slaves" and as little population as possible (the late Thatcher said that there are enough Russians and 12-18 mln) And while these "predators-inhumans" are in power, the policy of Western Europe will not change, and they are used to sucking resources and juices from the colonies and former colonies.

    Each pegional education should become independent, only based on its own strengths and reserves, to become self-sufficient in some way, to integrate its allied peoples into single citizens of the EU, whether or not. Therefore, some kind of cooling is useful to everyone. The same will be offered and others. Since the United States has spread its strings of influence, and if the process is affected, it will be affected by the process of fragmentation and building a regional entity based on North America.

    Europe has not yet gotten rid of World War II syndrome, when the Marshall Plan decided what to do and what not to do in its sovereign democracies, where US capital reigned supreme.
    The development of Europe, where the economies of Germany and France dictate their own rules, have come into conflict with the US global consumption ideology, which creates new challenges and its European vision of consumer society.
    The confrontation led to the creation of a regional euro currency.
    From both sides of the Atlantic, they understand that this is a financial bubble, but no one has come up with another tool for managing the world.
    We look forward to further aggravation of contradictions and God forbid a new world war as a method of resolving all past crises.

    They have been bombarded for a long time, they are trying to us. Thank God that such articles appear there from time to time. In addition, many in Europe, their geyropism rises across the throat and in Russia they see the savior from the dominance of the "non-traditional". And so, in the end, the leaders of Europe will have to rethink their attitude towards Russia.

    The article certainly warms the soul.
    However, the preparation of the drang nakh osten West in our country has not been canceled.


    There is a systematic redeployment of NATO military infrastructure to the borders of RUSSIA, it does not see this only blind.

    And sooner or later this WEST war machine must do what it was created for, to try once again to conquer RUSSIA by force (the example of YUGOSLAVIA is evident).

    I think they will not dare, it is troublesome and very expensive even for the USA. Imagine - we cut off oil and gas to Europe, we stop the supply of food and mineral resources. Russia is not greenhouse Europe, everything is different. A NATO soldier will not fight in a bowl without coffee and a hot soul, and even shoot at him and bomb them ... without asking.

    If you rephrase the words of the author: we will sit on two stools, take the resources of a neighbor (The cheaper the better) and then it will be seen... A typical zapadents position ...

    I would like to believe that the article is not the only one and such an understanding of the situation in Europe will only expand. But the USA will not be able to change the political vector for Europe, and given that the entire political elite in the West has been fed by the world financial elite, they can simply change enlightened politicians. without an enemy image, states cannot.

    It’s good that there are thinking people in the West and it seems that there are more of them. US ratings are falling and 24%
    For the population of the planet they hate and are afraid of this ghoul. For comparison: 2% are afraid of Russia.
    If Europe gets out of US control, it will be a serious blow to US pseudo-democracy.
    I would like to split America itself, the spread of states into separate states in the form of a confederation
    North American States. Freedom - Texas and California!

    "Our current traction horse, the US, will limp and fail?"

    Horses at the crossing do not change. Charon (USA) has already begun to smuggle the western world through the Styx. The Germans suddenly found that they boarded the wrong boat, did they read the name (Titanic)? And, the price for transportation was too high (loss of imperative).

      There is no hope for the USA and it cannot be. Because the United States does not need a strong and independent Europe, they need a faithful vassal on the borders with Russia.

    And also you are dealing with a country that was the first to use atomic (!) Bombardment of civilians, but simply put, fearing, in particular, large losses of its troops, used terror on an unprecedented scale neither before nor after. And remains alone on this list. Why does the image of this country remain generally positive? Because they, like no one else, understand the need to form a positive image of the country and do it with their inherent thoroughness and continuously in all areas. Russians are losing this fight outright, largely in my opinion because of the deep features of their national character. Agree, after all, what the Western average man calls the formation of a positive image for many of us causes inconvenience, perhaps, for bragging there, self-promotion. I think many people like Fedor Emelianenko, he is the image of a Russian in battle, in victory and in defeat. Is it suitable for Western mass media? Laconic, not outrageous, not eccentric. Yes, he will rise as a moral guideline, it is unclear for them tormenting soul. So what should we do? With a kind "for they do not know what they are doing" with a smile in silence, watch the flaming shabash. Or still decide - you wanted a war for the truth? You will get it!
